Tuesday Tango Week 5

10/08/19
The  All Pro Team
QB: Watson (51.74)
RB: A. Jones (45.70), C. McCaffrey (44.70)
WR: W. Fuller (46.70). M. Thomas (35.70), A. Cooper (34.10)
TE: G. Everett (17.10)
K: D. Bailey (16.00)
Flex: DJ Chark (32.40)
DL: B. Burns (19), B. Graham (18), J. Phillips/D. Hunter/Y.Ngakoue (15)
LB: AJ Johnson (16), D.Hightower (15), N. Gerry (15)
CB: O. Scandrick (27)
S: E. Reid (15)
 
Jones and Fuller had all-time type days...  certainly, probably not repeatable but both certainly have the talent to put up big production on a regular basis...  will it last?... my bet is Jones returns to a fantasy-tease and Fuller is a boom-bust player.
I sure hope there are more days for Watson like this in the future....  yes, the points are nice but I'm talking about ZERO sacks!
 
The All Oh-No Team
QB: P. Rivers (4.14)
RB: Dam. Williams (5.30), M. Gordon (5.80)
WR: M. Evans (0.00), K. Allen (3.80), J. Jones (5.70)
TE: D. Waller (5.90)
DL: A. Donald (3.00)
LB: Shaq Barrett (2.00), B. Wagner (5.00)
CB: K.Fuller (3.00)
S: E.Thomas (3.00)
 
If you rolled this team out, you'd have put up a whopping 46.64pts!
Zero points for Evans?...  you gotta be kidding me...  Arians might be the biggest fraud of a head coach there is... 
I can almost give a pass to Williams and Gordon since they are coming back off a layoff... but if you suit up and play, you have to put up the numbers!
 
 
Quick hits
ATL: their soul is in the hands of Belichick... and have you seen a more useless 727 passing yards the last 2 weeks than Matty Melting Ice?
HOU: good things happen when you keep D. Watson upright (51.74pts!)
LAR: Gurley is a worry for fantasy owners; without TD's, he becomes Dion Lewis
SEA: Wilson/Carson/Lockett: most underrated trio in the league
JAC: Minshew Mania real and that Fournette guy has got it goin' on (47.20pts the last two weeks)
CAR: Life is easier when you have a Christian on your team....  McCaffrey, that is (44.70pts)
ARI: A win is a win but it was vs Cincy...  love me some Kyler!
CIN: already playing out the string... Boyd seems like the only solid weekly fantasy starter here...  hey Joe, where are you?... and AJ is sitting back, saying "yeah, I'm good"
TB: Obviously, Godwin is the WR to have here....  Evans, 3 targets, zero catches, zero points...  can't trust Crablegs Jameis
NO: Teddy channels Drew to the tune of 35.26pts
MIN: Maybe the WR should complain every week: Thielen 28.50pts.. clear who Cousins likes/hates: Thielen 8 targets, Diggs 4 targets
CHI: So Chase Daniel is an upgrade?...judge, throw out that theory... and what has happened to T. Cohen?...  he is invisible
OAK: Do not sit Jacobs vs any team...  excellent game with 27.80pts..  Chucky's back!!
NYJ: Gase, you said you were a good head coach, the lie detector says, That's a Lie!...  go ahead and drop all NYJ offense players from your fantasy team, sans-Bell
PHI: Welcome back, Orlando Scandrick, 27pts
BAL: L. Jax, 13.44pts with 3-int's... nice win for him but we don't really care for fantasy purposes... and he has just what the doctor ordered to get back on track in Week 6: Bengals D!
PIT: Valiant effort, but no QB so little chance of winning... maybe they should have kept that RD 1 pick, looking like a Top 5!
BUF: Games are almost unwatchable and only Jordan Phillips-DL was fantasy relevant with 15pts...  and he is a FA in EVERY league
TEN: and this is the team that's unwatchable...  how did they beat CLE again??... Mariota 8.62pts... A. Humphries 5pts... C. Davis 3.8pts... AJ Brown 3.7pts... Henry 13.8pts...  sickening
NE: Hey, welcome to the season, Sony Michel!!  Thank you Boston Tom for providing Michel fantasy value this week 19.8pts
WAS: one word, disaster... no RB, the leading WR is S. Sims who got basically  all his points (13.6) on one end-around run for a TD... and only 3 defensive players in the Top 100 this week!
DEN: feast or famine with Lindsay: Weeks 1, 2, 4 = 23.70... Weeks 3, 5 = 49.70...  C. Sutton coming a solid fantasy contributor week-to-week with a 14.22 avg.
LAC: Rivers 32 completions for 211 yards...  yeah, I'd say he was Bortles-esque in this one...  and welcome back to Melvin Gordon, he rewarded us fantasy owners with 5.8pts!!!
GB: Aaron F-ing Jones, 45.70pts...  great week but only 107 rush yards... thank God for TD's...my guess,he is about 10pts next week
DAL: have you ever seen a more useless 463 yards passing?... and what happened to feeding Zeke?...  62 yards rushing... feed that man!!
IND: Fantastic defensive effort with several guys out including the big dog D. Leonard....  and an offensive game-plan to slow down the KC juggernaut... run, run and run some more....  if you have Mack, you're happy....  if you started anyone else, no bueno
KC: Unless you had a guy named Pringle, which none of you did, you are not happy.... Williams/McCoy combo got you 7.60pts...
CLE: Hope you didn't start Mayfield... a solid NEGATIVE 1 point!...  4/8 TD to INT ratio this year....  Mayfield is making Cleveland fans long for the days of Tim Couch...  I can hear OBJ now: "man, I remermber when I had it so good with Eli"
SF: Any more underrated team this season?...  that defense is a beast...  running game looks good...  Jimmy G, jury is still out

Tip of the Week
Bet ON a team that looked terrible in a national TV game the previous week
Bet AGAINST a team that looked great in a national TV game the previous week
Guess where the stars line up this week: CLE (+1) vs SEA
Thanks me later

Enjoy the week and get your prep work done for Week 6!!

Congrats to: Ray Patricio

Ray's team put up a whopping 233.18!!!

Lamar Jackson lead the way with 30.48 points.
I am stil not sold on him but no one can argue about the great start to his season as QB1... Who would have guessed he would out-point Pat Mahomes over the first four weeks, 130 to 126?....  certainly not me! 

Ray's stable of excellent RB's piled up 76.9 points....  Fournette, Gurley and McCaffrey are going to be a formidable bunch as the season progresses,

Congrats again, Ray....  excellent week and in the drivers seat at 4-0 in the division!





 

The Tuesday Tango

09/20/19

Wild Week 2...  no time to waste, let’s get to it!!

Déjà Vu 

A trip to the Super Bowl is on the line.... a pass to the flat.... an egregious hit...  refs looking at each other....  oh, wait.... that was last year....  

This time, the Rams went back to pass....  Goff hit, clear fumble, 80+ yard TD!!! ….  but wait....  whistle, play dead...  no TD, no Drew Brees, no beignet, no justice!   

This one was probably a bigger game-changer than the NFC Champ Game, if that’s even possible....  completely changed the complexion of the game...  I swear, it’s like a bunch of Don Denkinger’s are out there when the Saints take the field....  if you don’t get that reference, YouTube Don D!

“The Triage”  

*Drew Brees: out 6 weeks...  has only missed 1 game because of injury since high school!  

*Big Ben: out for the year... when was the last time you heard of a QB getting elbow surgery... answer: never...  See you in the HOF Ben! 

*D. Williams: hurt his knee, but only EIGHT yards rushing before he left 

*James Conner: The Terminator only had 11 yards on the ground but added a TD to salvage his day before leaving with a hurt knee....  looks like he is playing Week 3 

*Alshon Jeffery: the dreaded, “played, no stats” ...  likely out Week 3 

*Fournette: only 87 total yards, now in concussion protocol  

*Gallup: solid game before injury... will be out 2-4 weeks

Step Your Game Up 

*HOU offensive line....  it’s offensive alright...  8 games in a row that Watson has been sacked at least four times....  yes, FOUR times, EIGHT games in a row!!!... they are going to get him killed... maybe Larry Allen is available.    

*Dolphins GM, Chris Grier...  this team is an embarrassment to the NFL and should be relegated to the XFL immediately...  please promote the Tampa Bay Vipers, sight unseen.... can’t be any worse than what is out on the field now 

*Kirk “Not Kurt” Cousins...  is there really anything more to explain? … here is something for you to chew on: he is going to make $130M in career earnings by the end of 2020

All Week 2 Team 

QB: Mahomes (40.62) 

RB: D. Cook (26.60), A. Jones (23.0) 

WR: D. Robinson (32.2), J. Jones (25.1) 

TE: M. Andrews (21.2) 

Flex: E. Sanders (23.3) 

K: J. Slye (16) 

DL: D. Autry (15), S. Tuitt (14), D. Hunter (13) 

LB: L. Kuechly (20), J. Collins (19), W. Mercilus (16) 

CB: S. Gilmore (16) 

S: M. Nicholson (15)

Not Bad Meaning Bad but Bad meaning Good 

L. Jax....  Mr. Jackson if you’re nasty...   

I am honestly shocked at how awesome he has looked...  color me puzzled as to how well he is throwing the ball.... 39.22ppg with seven TD’s...  and more importantly, he is showing complete command of the offense....  kudos to you, Ozzie Newsome, for that talent eval and making moves to get him at pick #32 (standing up, applauding)   

Get Out Your Pencils, it’s Math-Time!  

*Mixon (4.2) + McCaffrey (6.3) + Kamara (6.5) + D. Williams (7.1) < D. Cook (26.6) 

Talk about four clunkers...  I’m pretty sure these guys cost you a win this week 

*Gordon (3.4) + Woods (5.2) + Hopkins (6.5) + Evans (8.1) < D. Robinson (32.2) 

What all should have been high-scoring games, all four were held in check

Put Out an ABP 

*Kamara: 60 total yards on 16 touches... Ito Smith-like 

*D. Freeman: 11.5 points this year... acting like CJ Anderson 

*D. Johnson: only 7 carries this week...  hope this isn’t a trend 

*P. Lindsay: 8.6ppg 2-weeks in a row...  have a feeling, there will be A LOT of these this year 

*Dante Pettis: is he even playing? 

*Mitchell Trubisky: will the real Mitch please stand up?... he is the #34 QB...  I thought there were only 32 teams?... yeah, that’s bad! 

Come on Eileen! 

D. Robinson-WR-KC: 32.2 points this week 

Any piece of the KC offense on any given week could be a game-winner for you...  this week, the honor goes to Demarcus Robinson, the fourth-year player out of Florida.  

He probably won’t have this many points combined the rest of the season but this week, he is a true, one hit wonder! 

And....  in case you were wondering 

Seven dogs covered the spread (six if you got Denver under +2.5) 

Five of them won outright 

Tip #1: when in doubt, take the dog!  

Good luck in Week 3 players.

Thanks for being a part of Mr. Sports!

It's Here!

07/20/19

I am so excited to welcome you all to the NEW Mr. Sports Fantasy Football Site!

Please explore!!!
This will be much easier for you to navigate on your device of choice: phone, tablet, laptop, desktop, mainframe, punch cards, whatever!

There will be new things added over the next few months to make your fantasy experience easier and more fun. I will keep this area updated with any new gadgets and widgets which are added, so please check back here regularly.

Speaking of this section, I am going to use this area for:

  1. Any Mr. Sports site news: All First Half Team, best fantasy player over the last three weeks, top rookies, well you get the point
  2. Any updates on pickups, trades, added rookies, etc.
  3. And of course any Nonsense going on in sports: could be a Tweet, an Instagram post, story, anything fun and different.

Also, If any of you have always wanted to write for a fantasy sports site, here is your chance. We will be starting an "Articles" section soon. This can be any of a variety of topics. So if you are smart, witty and can put three sentences together (I guess that just cut out 98% of us), let's talk!

I hope you enjoy the new site.
Any feedback, positive and/or improvement ideas, are always appreciated.

Thank you for being a part of Mr. Sports and if you are not involved yet, what are you waiting for?!?!
