1.bu huskies 1-0
cool. what are the matchups for next week?
How is R-Dot at #4? No offense, but he was the luckiest team out of all. His squad didn't even put up 100 pts, whereas there were three other teams that put up 100 pts and lost.
- BU Huskies (1-0): Brees led the way, but BU also had huge games from Wayne, M. Barber, and Thomas Jones. Thomas Jones won't post too many 100 yard games this year, but he should continue to get goalline TDs. BU should continue to score about 120 points per game even with Anthony Gonzalez out for an extended period of time.
- the birdmen (1-0): The auto drafting that landed him Peyton Manning and Tony Romo is going to do wonders this season. John Carlson looks like a top 5 TE after week one. Westbrook looked like his old self. Eagles DEF took advantage of the ineffective QB's the Panthers have. WRs need a little work. Overall, this team is a threat to score 100+ points week in, week out.
- Thetruth (1-0): AP did this thing and so did McNabb before he left the game. Gage, Fitz, Jets DEF also scored in double digits. Should be able to score 100 points often if AP continues to have huge games. Fortunately, for Thetruth AP plays the Lions next, and the Thetruth so happens to be playing LEMONS. 2-0?
- Turtles (1-0): Rodgers didn't have the explosive outing everyone knows he is capable of having. Expect big numbers from him as the season continues. Matt Ryan is another solid QB. If Turtles can continue to start the best #2 RB, and get some more production from Holt and M. Bennett, then he can score 100 points every week as well.
- purplejesus allday (1-0): If Hasselbeck can play like that every week, then purplejesus is a threat to win every week. Solid WRs, RBs, a top flight TE, and a nice DEF.
- Gatorheels (0-1): Unfortunately, Palmer and Schaub didn't post the numbers that were expected. This is still one of the top teams in the league, just had a bad week. However, even if Orton didn't throw that 87 yard lucky TD pass, R-Dot still would have won. Bernard Berrian also hurt the team's performance, since he was basically non-existent during the Vikings' game.
- R-Dot (1-0): Eli Manning looked good. Orton's numbers are inflated, although he will still be a serviceable #2 QB. Royal and Steve Smith should have better days ahead.
- The Lion Pack (0-1): Unfortunately, they could have played a certain 6 other teams and won. Tom Brady will help keep this team in every game, so long as the RB production continues. This team, Them Crooked Vultures, and the Eagles, are essentially in a 3 way tie for the 8th spot.
- Them Crooked Vultures (0-1): Needs more production from QBs. WRs are still solid. Packers DEF looked really good. Should be able to give the top teams a scare every now and then.
- Eagles (0-1): Needs Cutler and Cutler's WRs to get on the same page quick. Some of those INTs were Cutler's fault, and some were his WR's. Turner and Brown should bounce back and have better games. Will need consistency from #2 and #3 WRs to be able stick around with the top teams.
- New York Monsta (0-1): This team should play better as a unit as well. Marshall will have to step up as a #1 WR. Pitt's DEF lost a key player, but they should still play well. Once Lynch returns from suspension this will be a scary team.
- LEMONS (0-1): Flacco played exceptionally well...against the Chiefs. Could still use better production from the 3rd WR and 2nd RB. Might be able to upset some teams throughout the year.
now there's an intelligent power ranking...
I just had a bad week, Smith and Royal didnt do enough for my team, i was disappointed .
i cant believe io got Romo and Manning. i think my receivers will be good though Owens, and Bryant just had bad weeks.
cool. what are the matchups for next week?
Bryant would be eligible for a new deal starting at around $32-33 million (a number no other team would reasonably be capable of nearing). Is there a dollar figure both Bryant and the Lakers would be comfortable settling on and does that negotiation go smoothly or contentiously? Could Bryant actually end his career on a different team altogether?
Given how far his game has fallen off – he hasn’t averaged double figures since 2008-09 in Houston – teams are looking at him as a veteran presence more than a scoring threat, and he isn’t inspiring confidence in teams looking for a veteran voice.
As always, it is important to mention that these rankings are based on a nine-category rotisserie league format – the nine categories being: points, assists, rebounds, steals, blocks, three-pointers made, turnovers, FG percentage , and FT percentage.
