SportsPros(e) ties up the week that was

by Ricky O'Donnell on December 9, 2008 at 12:01AM


Oddly, the brothers Allen (they are brothers, right?) missed this week's biggest story: my fantasy football team's improbable run to the playoffs. How's this for a short story: my season started off ominously when my first round pick got Bernard Pollard'd eight minutes into the year. I persevered, leading the league in points most of the season, yet catching everyone else's best week in the process.

Things looked bleak in Week 13 when I trailed Beau 74.06 to 63.56 going into the Monday night game; Beau sending out Owen Daniels, my season (and money) resting with Andre Johnson. Johnson outscored Daniels 13.5 to 2.5, good enough to give me 77.06 to 76.56 victory. That put me in a 'win or Dye trying' situation last weekend against Mike, with the winner going to the playoffs.

Even though I made a classic roster blunder - forgetting to sub out Darren McFadden before the Thursday night game - The Never Nudes still were able to squeak out a four point win. Mike claims that this is the second consecutive season I've crushed his hopes and dreams in the final week of the regular season (I have no recollection of this), so that's fun, too. Playoffs start next week. I'll keep you updated.


Dubs texted in sick today at Top Ten, so I brought back an old favorite.

There are dozens of us! Dozens!!!

Two things.

First, what's up with you failing to mention anything about the pick'em pool?

Secondly, when are you setting up the TUP Bowl Game Pick'em pool?

any advice for me here

I need to start 3 WRs (First 3 are the ones i'm currently starting)

Colston at CHI
Bess vs SF
Berrian at ARI (Not if Ferotte sits)
Bradley vs SD (might be hurt still)
Ginn vs SF
Avery vs SEA (dont even know why hes still on my team)

i might seriously end up starting Bess and Ginn

also, Romo or Thigpen?

Tylers playing the 30th ranked pass D, but Romo has been on a roll lately and has a good track record against the Giants

Uh, I don't know. Romo usually sucks after Thanksgiving and the Giants' D is super good. But I still think you have to start him over fucking Tyler Thigpen, and based on the fact that Tyler Thigpen is Tyler Thigpen.

I like your original choices at wide out too right now I think. But yeah, if Gus doesn't play, I wouldn't start Berrian. Tav Jackson was good last week but that was probably a fluke.
