Week 3

09/28/22
What a Week 3 we had...  mostly Non-Superstar type of week which makes fantasy football even more interesting!  
Take a look at the weekly leaders at each position. 
Outside of the two Ravens, it was all over the board. 

Week 3 Top Performers
QB: L. Jackson (47.42)
RB: K. Herbert (29.90), Jam. Williams (23.70)
WR: Da. Smith (26.90), M. Hollins (25.96), M. Brown (21.00)
TE: M. Andrews (24.90)
K: G. Zuerlein (18.00)
DL: B. Graham (20), T, Hendrickson (20), D. Wise (18)
LB: R. Smith (22), M. Ingram (17), N. Bolton (17)
CB: D. Ward (16)
S: J. Pitre (27)
Definitely wasn’t a “Super Star” type week but was certainly fun!
 
What do names like G. Smith J. Brissett, M. Ryan, R. Tannehill all have in common?
They all outscored the likes of: Mahomes, Rodgers, Brady, Herbert, Murray, Stafford, Wilson.
 
Low score for QB for the week: J. Fields come in with a whopping 4.94ppg…   AND gets the win!!! 
 
The RB position had some uncommon names in the Top 12 this week:
RB1: Herbert (no, not Justin, although Khalil outscored Justin this week)
RB2: Jam. Williams… this DET team just keeps churning out top producers week in, week out
RB6: D. Singletary… 10 combined points Week 1-2 and then throws up a 19.6!
RB8: R. Stevenson… doubled up his output in Week 3 from Week 1 + 2
RB10: D. Pierce…  finally, HOU decides to use the talented back for a nice 17.10! 
RB11: C. Edmonds…  just when Mostert looked like the lead guy, here comes Chase… again, another RB doubling up his previous 2 weeks combined!
  
And the WR position did the same…  Most are projected WR3 and lower yet they are in the top 24 in Week 3.
WR2: M. Hollins…  who?... did you know he has been in the league for 6-years?
WR4: R. Gage… I guess someone had to catch passes and it wasn’t Cole Beasley
WR6: Z. Jones… the once 2nd RD pick is finally showing some promise… helps that Urb isn’t the coach anymore in Jax! 
WR7: C. Olave…  all I have to say: stud
WR9: T. Boyd… the 3rd WR on a disappointing CIN team comes up with a nice effort
WR10: D. Parker… yes, the #1 WR on NE but not many chances in this putrid offense…  frankly. The NE offense is offensive!
WR11: I McKenzie… talented but often overshadowed
WR12: R. Doubs…  could be a staple in the Top 12 if A-Aron keeps liking him!
Others appearing 13-24: Shenault, Osborn, Palmer
 
Death, Taxes and T. Kelce being in the Top 5 every week at TE (this week, #3)
TE2 Njoku… this big man triples up his Week 1+2 AND he has his 2nd biggest fantasy day ever!
TE4: J. Woods… super talented rookie… Ryan should be finding him in the RZ more often
TE5: T. Conklin… solid start to the season so far
 
How about this:
L. Jax 47.42 > Brady (16.74) + Herbert (15.,58) + Murray (13.36)… 
Lamar is putting up video game numbers, it’s silly while Murray is just running around like a novice player in Fortnite!
 
RB
K. Herbert  29.90 > A. Ekeler (9.30) + A. Kamara (7.30) + J. Mixon (5.30) + Jav. Williams (7.50)…
Talk about huge disappoints… 2-1st RD picks, 2-early 2nd RD picks…  all four are killing fantasy teams!...  meanwhile, Herbert takes advantage of his chance and comes up huge, although his week should only be worth half since he did play against HOU
 
WR
M. Hollins 25.96 > DJ Moore (2.00) + J. Jefferson (2.90) + D. Mooney (3.30) + A. Robinson (3.30) + T. Hill (4.30) + M. Thomas (7.40)
I should have known not to put faith in Baker throwing accurately to DJ Moore…  then you have ARob, the “darling of the preseason” as everyone expected a huge bounce-back season; check this through 3-games: ARob 2021: 19.6pts; 2022: 18.3pts; if you had the Under for 2022, WINNER!!!
 
LB
M. Ingram (17) > D. White (5) + B Wagner (9)
Getting Allen down 2x is a huge win for Ingram and MIA… plus it was Ingram’s biggest week since Week 5 of 2018… expect a huge effort vs SF from Wagner this week and a so-so outing by D. White against KC.
 
Top DL’s going into the season with Week 3 rankings
Miles Garret: DL90
Aaron Donald: DL12
Nick Bosa: DL35
Brian Burns: didn’t score
Demarcus Lawrence: DL4
 
Top LB’s going into the season with Week 3 rankings
TJ Watt: hurt
Jordyn Brooks: LB36
Bobby Wagner: LB34
Devin White: LB72
Roquan Smith: LB1
Shaq Leonard: hurt
Foyesade Oluokun: LB25
Eric Kendricks: LB20
Micah Parsons: LB100+
CJ Mosley: LB7
Roquan being Roquan…  he is the LB3 for the season…  super stud!

CB… nice to see D. Ward come up big… he had his best fantasy day since Game 1 of his career (19pts in Week 1, 2018!)
S: J. Pitre with a dominate Week 3 outing… the rookie out of Baylor is making a huge impact in the IDP world and for a bad HOU team! 
 
Number of players over 10ppg at their position in Week 3
RB: 27… with 11 over 15
WR: 41… with 17 over 15
TE: 9… with 3 over 15
K: 13… with 2 over 15
DL: 13… with 6 over 15
LB: 33… with 6 over 15
CB: 14… with 1 over 15
S: 19… with 6 over 15
And QB over 25ppg: 5… 1 over 40
 
Good luck in Week 4!

Week 2

09/20/22
Week 2 down….  12 to go!! 
Are you 0-2? … Or 2-0?
Lots of moves to be made in the coming weeks
REMINDER… you can trade 2023 draft picks from now until the trade deadline!!!
 
And now on to the info you want! 
 
Did I see a 50-burger this week?
I sure did….  Nope, not LJax, not Mahomes, not Allen….  But TUA with a 50.86!!!
Who was the last to put up 50??
 
Did you hear that?....   what was it?
Ohhhhh, it was the THUD of studs not living up to expectations for Week 2
 
QB: Flacco (35.88) > R. Wilson (13.06) + T. Brady (12.40) + J. Winston (9.64)
I thought Russ was supposed to start “cooking” a lot more in Denver….  Guess he is cooking one of those nice tofu dishes because the BBQ was water in it!! 
 
RB: T. Pollard (17.80) > J. Taylor (6.80) + D. Cook (5.60) + C. Patterson (4.10)
A huge down week for RB’s…  in addition to the above, all the following were under 10ppg:
J. Mixon, Jav. Williams, J. Jacobs, D. henry, L. Fournette, K. Hunt, D. Pierce, C. Akers, AJ Dillon, T. Etienne, J. Conner, Zeke, C. Edmonds, D. Singletary, R. Penny… let’s hope you had either Chubb or A Jones this week! 
 
WR: G. Wilson (26.00) > J. Chase (8.30) + J. Jefferson (7.80) + DK Metcalf (5.50) + JuJu (2.50)
This rookie G. Wilson for the Jets looks like the real deal…  the new Chase? Jefferson?... this week, 2 rookies in the top 10: Wilson (6th) and London (10th) …  then some guy named Noah Brown takes over for the ‘Boys as he has more points through Week 2 than he had all last year! 
 
TE: M. Gesicki (12.10) > T. Kelce (7.60) + K. Pitts (2.90)
If you had R. Dwelley (9th) and E. Saubert (12th) in your Top 12 Pool for Week 2, you’re a winner!!! 
 
DL: Shy Tuttle (12.00) > A. Donald (5.00) + M. Garrett (5.00) + M. Davenport (2.00)
Who is Shy Tuttle you ask?
Welcome back to JJ Watt… hope you enjoyed his 7pts, he is sure to get hurt walking onto the practice field this week.
 
LB: M. Milano (16.00) > F. Oluokun (5.00) + D. Campbell (4.00) + L. Wilson (3.00) + F. Warner (3.00)
Several top LB’s not producing in Week 2….  Time to panic and change it up? ..  Eric Kendricks, the season has started, go ahead, feel free to start making some tackles! 
 
S: T. Walker was #8 defender overall in Week 1…  in Week 2 you ask?...  52nd…  at Safety!!! 
 
Lamar Jackson-50.88-Week 5, 2021
The last QB to put up a 50-burger! 
 
Did you know
Matt Ryan was the #2 QB in 2018 with 26.84ppg
We are a long way from those days!    
 
Number of players at/over 10ppg per position in Week 2
RB: 18  
WR: 37   
TE: 11  
K: 12
DL: 13
LB: 36  
CB: 14  
S: 15  
And QB’s over 25ppg: 9…  and 2 of them over 40ppg!! 
 
Good luck in Week 3!!! 
 
The Commish

AND WE ARE OFF!!!

09/13/22
Week 1 is in the books…. And what a week it was
WR scoring out of their minds… Top 12 scored 267.8pts (22.31ppg avg per player)
RB’s not wanting to be left out of the scoring parade… Top 12 score 253.3pts (21.10ppg avg per player)
TE’s coming out of nowhere
27-INT’s to start the year with 2-pick six’s!! 
And of course the dreaded injury bug struck: Dak, Eli, TJ, Keenan, J. Adams, Najee, Godwin
 
Now, on to the numbers!
 
Top Players Week 1
QB: P. Mahomes 44.90
RB: S. Barley (30.40), J. Taylor (25.50)
WR: J. Jefferson (34.90), C. Kupp (25.30), D. Adams (25.10)
TE: T. Kelce 22.10
K: Y. Koo 19.00
DL: J. Hughes (20.00), J. Simmons (17.00), M. Garrett (16.00)
LB: A. Highsmith (24.00), J. Hicks (21.00), K. Mack (21.00)
CB: J. Bradberry 14.00
S: M. Fitzpatrick 26.00
 
Math time!!
** Dontrell Hilliard-RB-TEN (20.40) > D. Henry (8.20) + A. Kamara (6.10) + Zeke (5.40)
 
**Rookie RB’s didn’t fair too well Week 1
RB21 I. Pacheco (12.20)
RB34 B. Hall (8.10)
RB35 Z. Horvath (7.80)… who??
RB53 D. Pierce (4.40)
RB61 R. White (3.10)
RB70 J. Warren (0.70)
RB—Z. White…  zero offensive snaps, only special teams work
 
**What do these names have in common: Shepard, Landry, Samuel, Anderson, Duvernay…   
They were 25% of the Top 20 WR’s for Week 1….  And none of you played them!! 
 
**Rookie WR’s didn’t do much better than the RB’s
WR13 J. Dotson (16.50)
WR33 D. London (9.90)
WR49 C. Olave (7.60)
WR52 G. Wilson (7.20)
WR53 T. Burks (7.00)
WR54 R. Doubs (6.80)
WR67 C. Watson (5.10)
WR81 S. Moore (3.50)
 
If you had these three WR’s going into the year, you were feeling pretty good about your chances…
WR103 M. Williams 2.00
WR108 A. Robinson 1.70
WR112 D. Mooney 1.30
 
Same with these three RB’s…
RB39 T. Etienne 7.50
RB44 D. Montgomery 6.50
RB60 T. Pollard 3.20
 
And more Math…
**R. Anderson 18.70 > DJ Moore (6.50) + DK Metcalf (6.10) + C. Lamb (3.90)
 
Top coveted DL’s produced…
DL3 M. Garrett 16.00
DL12 N. Bosa 9.00
DL13 C. Heyward 9.00
DL27 A. Donald 6.00
DL88 M. Davenport 2.00
19-DL’s scored more 8+ points
 
And you ask about LB’s?
LB6 TJ Watt 17.00…  to bad he is out for a few weeks, this guy is a pure stud! 
LB7 D. White 17.00
LB16 J. Brooks 12.00
LB19 R. Smith 12.00
LB28 B Wagner 11.00
 
Overall Defense scoring
19-DL’s scored more 8+ points
33-LB’s scored 10+ points
25-Safety’s scored 10+ points
16-Corners scored 10+ points
 
Who is RB 35 you ask?
Zander Horvath-Fullback-LAC… 6’3, 230… drafted 7th RD out of Purdue
 
I bet you’re thinking “Hey, how did the Top Picks in this years’ draft do Week 1?” …  well, let’s take a look at the typical Top 24 picks in drafts
JT = RB2
D. Henry = RB33
CMC = RB18
C Kupp = WR2
J. Jefferson = WR1
J. Chase = WR4
A. Ekeler = RB28
A. Kamara = RB47
D. Cook = RB20
N. Harris = RB26
D. Adams = WR3
J. Mixon = RB9
L. Fournette = RB16
N. Chubb = RB15
D. Swift = RB3
S. Barkley = RB1
A. Jones = RB29
S. Diggs = WR6
Jav. Williams = RB14
Zeke = RB49
T. Hill = WR21
C. Lamb = WR76
D. Samuel = WR26
T. Kelce = TE1
 
Who woulda thought….
**J Brissett would outscore Brady, Stafford, A Aron, Dak
**D. Hilliard would be RB7 and outscore every RD 1 RB besides Sequon
**OJ Howard, T. Hill, G. Everett, W. Dissly, C. Parkinson all would outscore Waller, Schultz, Andrews, Pitts
**Kwity Paye (out of Michigan!) would outscore N. Bosa, A. Donald, C. Heyward
**J. Hicks (where has he been hiding the last couple of years?) would outscore Wagner, Mosley, Kendricks
 
Time to panic?
Time to “throw in the towel?”
Time to chase?
Time to “ride it out?”
One hell of a Week 1, that’s for sure!!!
Lots of decisions to be made.
I love this time of year…  makes fantasy football fun (and frustrating!)
 
Good luck in Week 2.

Twas the Night Before Football....

09/07/22
....And all through the house....  not a fantasy GM was sleeping, not even their spouse... 
 
The Football Season is peaking around the corner.... I am so excited for the season!!!
I hope you are feeling the same!!  
 
Some details to remember for this year....  
 
Pickups every week
RD 1: posted Thursday mornings at 10:45am EST (7:45am PST)
RD 2: posted Saturday mornings at 11:00am EST (8:00am PST) 
RD 3: posted Sunday at 1:00am EST (10:00pm Saturday night PST) 
REMINDER...Any player that is on a THURSDAY NIGHT team is NOT eligible to be picked up OR dropped  in RD 2 and RD 3
 
Trades
Enter them into the system.
When both sides match exactly, I will process. 
If you are trading a pick for 2023, please email me the trade. 
Feel free to drop me a note letting me know you entered a trade and I will process ASAP. 
 
Start of the Season
LAR vs BUF in Los Angeles tomorrow night (Thursday) @ 8:2-0pm EST (5:20pm PST) .... I can't wait!!!  
Make sure to have your players in that you want playing 
REMINDER...  if you have a LAR or BUF player as a backup, your STARTER(s) will lock and you can not change them.... example: you have D. Henderson-RB as your 1st backup RB...  once the game starts, Henderson locks as well as both of your starting RB's...  This prevents any "best ball" strategies that teams could take advantage of if players did not lock in this manner. 
Any questions, let me know.... I will be happy to explain further. 
 
Scoring 
Please be patient Week 1 as there are usually some hiccups that need to be fixed so the rest of the season runs smoothly.... thanks for your understanding. 
 
Good luck this season. 
Thank you VERY MUCH for being a part of Mr. Sports!!!

FOOTBALL IS READY TO GO!!!!

04/13/22
Football is up and running...I'm excited for the new year!!!

The NFL has turned into a year-round sport....
It seems like every time I turn on the TV or look at my phone, there is a trade or big free agent signing or some sort of interesting news!

I hope each and every one of you come back to all your teams...  but if you need to drop a team, please let me know as soon as possible.
In order to pay, you can go to Settings (under MyMrSports) and click "Make a Deposit).
Or, accounts will lock on Friday April 22nd and you can pay at that time.
Reminder: in order to trade, you must be paid in full for the 2022 season.

Trading is in full swing.
Several trades have been made and trade talk is rampant!
I love this time of year....  talking football, getting deals done... so much fun!

Another season of many questions:
**No WR's in GB, can A-Aron pull a Brady and produce with anyone?
**Will D Carr (newly signed to 3yr/$121M) make it like old college times with Adams?
**Can Tampa Tom run it back one more time?
**Will McCaffrey stay healthy and jump back into the #1 fantasy player discussion?
**Can Barkley, Zeke, Sanders bounce back from down seasons?
**Who is this year's Najee and Chase?
**AFC West is loaded, who emerges, who falls short?
**NFC looking like the JV squad... what surprise team jumps up?
**Can J Fields and T. Lawrence take a step forward this year?
**Rams reload, is a repeat in order?
**Will #2 Fantasy WR Deebo get traded?
And on and on and on!!!
The NFL is so much fun nowadays!

A couple of changes.
**In 2023 (NEXT year), cutdowns will be: 9 keepers for playoff teams, 10 keepers for non-playoff teams.
**Starting this season, Week 1-10, you can trade future redraft picks for 2023 if you pay half of the fee for 2023 for that team. This is non-refundable in the event you do not come back to that team.

**Three other things I am considering: 1. adding an IR spot making it 2 spots... 2. cutting the roster size by 2, from 33 to 31... 3. for 2023, slightly changing of defensive player points for tackles, pass defended; not sure exactly what it looks like but I believe defensive players need to be a little more valuable than they currently are....   I will keep you posted on these issues.... if you're passionate about any issue mentioned OR have another idea, let me know... always happy to chat.

KEY DATES
Preseason trading: now until Aug. 9
Cutdowns: Posted 11am EST Aug. 10
Redraft: Aug 13-Sept 5
Season starts: Thursday Sept. 8th: LAR vs TBD

**I expected Lawrence to be a little higher but the rest about what I thought....  consensus after the preseason was Zach Wilson was the "next great thing"... he has been more Tim Couch than Joe Burrow.
 
RB5 N. Harris
RB20 E Mitchell
RB25 M. Carter
RB33 J. Williams
RB39 C. Hubbard
RB47 K. Gainwell
RB51 R. Stevenson
RB54 K. Herbert
RB73 T. Sermon
RB79 C Evans
RB99 L. Rountree
RB100 J. Patterson
RB T. Etienne- OUT
RB J. Funk- OUT
RB J. Hawkins- FA
**No shock that Harris is up top of the Rookie RB's, although a Top 5 RB is a little surprising... those of you that gave a lot to get the #1 rookie pick, you have been rewarded nicely.... the shock here is Sermon...  he has been preaching to the choir and not preaching to the defense...  maybe 3 schools in 3 years should have told us something,.
 
WR5 J. Chase
WR34 J. Waddle
WR42 D. Smith
WR57 E. Moore
WR62 R. Bateman
WR68 R. Moore
WR74 K. Toney
WR89 A. St. Brown
WR98 N. Collins
WR125 T. Marshall Jr
WR140 D. Brown
WR157 A. Rodgers
WR D Eskridge-OUT
**I'm old enough to remember when they said Chase couldn't catch an NFL pass... those were the days!... Chase has been nothing short of spectcular... I think everyone else falls in line here.... Waddle and Smith have been servicable and getting better...  the surprise for me is T. Marshall...  I thought he would at least be rosterable.
 
TE10 K. Pitts
TE15 P. Freiermuth
**Surprised Pitts is only 10th... expected a Top 5 effort...  the Falcons are bad but c'mon, give the man the damn ball!!...  Big Ben has a rag arm and that fits Freiermuth just fone...  he is steadlily moving up the ranks  on his way to a Top 10 TE finish!
 
DL30 G. Rousseau
DL88 K. Paye
**No surprises

ML 26 M. Parsons
LB40 N. Bolton
LB62 J. Owusu-Koramoah
LB81 P. Werner
LB95 O. Oweh
LB98 J. Davis
LB128 J. Tryon
LB132 Z. Collins
**Parsons is a destroyer of offenses...  I think he will become contender for top LB by the end of the season...  the big surprise here is J. Davis...  projected for over 100 tackles, he has 34 through 8 games.
 
CB32 A. Samuel Jr
CB59 P. Surtain
CB J. Horn-OUT
**Expected a littlemore out of both guys.... love them as real life players.
 
S91 R Grant
**Nothing to see here,move along.

Thanks for checking out the numbers...  I enjoy putting together all this stuff, fun to see!

Good luck this week! 

The Commish
 

Through Week 5, some fun stuff!!!

10/12/21
Five Weeks down, Nine to go!! 
 
REMINDER:
SIX (6) Teams make the playoffs this year
Even at 0-5 or 1-4, you're still in it.
A few numbers from 2020
If there would have been 6-teams in the playoffs
36 leagues
9-Wins gets you in for 1 league, scoring avg of 168
8-Wins gets you in for 11 leagues, scoring avg of 165
7-Wins gets you in for 21 leagues, scoring avg of 165
6-Wins gets you in for 3 leagues, scoring avg of 162
 
As you can see, strive for 7 wins with a decent scoring avg and you have a great shot at making the playoffs! 
 
What a wild ride we have had thus far.... many surprises and maybe even more disappointments...   
 
Now let's have some fun with numbers
 
Top starting lineup (5-games played)
QB: T. Brady (33.06)
RB: D Henry (25.50), A. Ekeler (21.76)
WR: M. Williams (21.12), C Kupp (20.06), T. Hill (19.52)
TE: T. Kelce (15.18)
PK: T Bass  (10.80)
DL: V Hargrave (11.00), M Garrett (10.20), D Hunter (10.20)
LB: L. Wilson (14.00), R. Smith (13.80), E. Kendricks (13.00)
CB: T. Diggs (12.80)
S: D. James (11.40)
 
**Old-Man Brady at the top is a surprise...to see the difference between Brady at 44 and Big Ben at 39 is shocking.... I guess those avocado shakes DO work!
**Mike Williams as the Top WR is amazing...  he has had all the tools to be in the Top 12 but has been hurt...  now he has a stud QB and an offensive scheme that gets him open
**T. Diggs is just a stud...  a converted WR at Bama, he is looking like a new Deion! 
**It is so great to see Derwin James back... hurt for 2+ years, he is FINALLY showing why he was so coveted...  he is a wrecking machine and the best safety in the game.
 
Did you Know.... Hollywood Brown is the WR6 right now, ahead of the likes of DK Metcalf, Justin Jefferson and DeAndre Hopkins?
 
Did you know.... Kareem Hunt is the RB4 right now, back to his pre-kicking women days?
 
Did you know.... there were TWO 50 burgers put up this week?... L. Jackson 50.88 and J. Herbert 50.82
 
Did you know.... there is only one other week since 1997 that had TWO players score 50+ points in the same week?...  can you name it?... answer at the end of the page.... 
 
My All-Disappointing players
**QB
Not really any I see as underperforming
Maybe Burrow at QB17...with addition of Chase I'd expect around QB12 range
Rodgers is lower ppg because of his TERRIBLE 1st game (1pt!!!) but he has been money since.
 
**RB
Cook RB17... out for 2-games has been a killer and wasn't the stud for the other two healthy games we would expect
Mixon RB19... I call him "The Stripper" because he is the ultimate tease... has all the talent in the world yet just can't get it done
Barkley RB21... are we even surprised anymore...  like I tell my daughter, "you get what you get, and you don't throw a fit!"
 
 
**WR
Diggs WR31... 1-100yd game and 1-TD... E. Sanders is the man here for now
Ridley WR33... 1-TD and 1 game of 80yds... let's hope his mental health absence helps him regain Top 5 WR status
Julio Jones WR50...  was hoping for one more youthful season from the 32-yr-old but like Ponce de Leon, he's coming up a bit long in the tooth
L Shenault WR63...  many of the so-called "experts" breakout WR candidate, he's been stuck in neutral going uphill
D. Mooney WR64... see above
 
**TE
Waller TE6...  had to say he is disappointing at 6th but after his huge game 1, he has been pretty average.
Pitts TE8... before he got to pay the Jets, he was a huge disappointment
Kittle TE10...  one good game (13ppg) and now he's on IR
 
**DL
B. Burns DL20...  in everyone's top 10, not making a fantasy impact yet
D. Buckner DL30...  another consensus top 10, he's only got 1 sack
C. Young DL36... Top 3 DL down at the end of being a DL-3... projected to have 13 sacks, just got his 1st this weekend.... maybe that sparks him
C. Jordan DL64... has been in the 6-8ppg range for 6 years, now at 3.8ppg
R. Gregory
 
**LB
Z. Cunningham LB35... Top 10 LB on many preseason IDP lists, he hasn't been productive, kinda like the rest of the Texans!
D. White LB50... talk about him being the best LB out there before the season have subsided...  now there's talk about him being as good as AJ Klein! 
P. Queen LB54... top 10 overall IDP projection, he has basically disappeared the last 2-games after a promising start....  helllllllooooooo Patrick!!!!  ....  rather have Steve McQueen on my team right now!
 
**CB
Well, you gotta start one...  not sure there is a go-to guy here! 
In most cases, the key to a great CB in fantasy is a bad CB in real life
 
**S
J. Adams S22... right at the top of everyone's Safety list, he is playing like he's part of the Legion of Dud, not the LOB!
J. Chinn S50... some very bad luck getting TWO TD's called back because calls were overturned (that pesky replay!)... 
 
And the Truly Awful Team-Killers!
If you had this team going into the season, you would have at back, lit a cigar and said "bring on the playoffs"
QB: J. Burrow
RB: Cook, Barkley
WR: Ridley, A. Robinson, AJ Brown
TE: Kittle
DL: Burns, Buckner, Young
LB: White, Queen, Cunningham
CB: T. White
S: Chinn
 
CEH RB29... I was completely wrong here; thought he would be money in KC but he has turned out to be only expired Chuckie Cheese game tickets! 
M. Sanders RB34... the hype this guy gets year in and year out would make you think he is the next Edge...  he is more like the next Bishop Sankey! 
K. Drake RB56... hey, let's give his guy 2yrs-$11M and give him 37 touches in 5 games with only THREE touches the last 2-weeks...  Commitment to Stupidity! 
R. Jones RB62...  honesty, I thought he was coaching USC
K Golladay WR66... I thought he retired, I guess he's just playing like it
A.Robinson WR72... Where have you gone, Allen Robinson, the fantasy nation turns its eyes to you, wo wo wo!!.. what's that you say Mr. Robinson,  you had Andy Dalton throwing to you, wo wo wo!
AJ Brown WR78... 10 receptions in 3 full games...  you gotta be effing kidding me?!?
R. Anderson WR79... guess Darnold doesn't like anyone beside The DJ
B. Aiyuk WR96... 8 catches, 90yds, 1-TD...  that's a good half!!...seriously, did he screw the coach's wife?
W. Fuller WR144...  yes, you read that right.... a potential Top 15 WR is 144th!!!...  I guess all I can say is Tua-Brissett combo are not doing him any favors!
 
Next week, we will take a look at how the Rookies are doing through Week 6
 
REMINDER: Bye Weeks
Week 6: ATL, NO, NYJ, SF
Week 7: BUF, DAL, JAC, LAC, MIN, PIT
Plan accordingly.
 
AND.....
The answer is.....
2015 Week 8... Drew Brees 60
2015 Week 8... Eli Manning 50
 
Have a great rest of your week and GOOD LUCK Week 6!!

Starting this 2021 Fantasy Football Season...
 
There will be TWO added playoff teams, making it SIX total that make the playoffs!

Football: The COViD Experience!

09/30/20
Good morning!

I hope you have enjoyed the first 3 weeks of the season!  
What a wild one we have had thus far!

Our first COVID incident...
We have the TEN-PIT game being postponed until Monday or Tuesday.

Please take extra care with your lineup this week making sure starters and backups are in the places you want them.

No word on the MIN-HOU game yet... no one has tested positive for MIN... fingers crossed.

No new pickups or IR spots as of yet...
If either game does not play this week, it will be treated as their Bye Week by the NFL.. they will be playing on their regularly schedule Bye Week so no games will be missed.
Our rosters are 33 deep (and 1-IR) so we do have a lot of room for moves to be made...  possibly some tough decisions to make but that is part of fantasy!

2020 is a crazy year and not everything is going to be completely fair this year...  unfortunately, that's the way 2020 is going to go...

Thanks for being patient and understanding through these unprecedented times!  

I hope you and yours are very well!

All Unowned teams are open for trading so if you see something, let me know.

Thank for being a part of Mr. Sports
I appreciate you!

Have a fantastic day!

Brian

Tuesday Tango Week 3 Edition

09/29/20
Week 3 in the books
 
Not the carnage of last week but still had several went down:
C. Godwin-WR-TB... looks to miss multiple games
Carson-RB-SEA....  out 1-2 weeks
C. Young-DL-Was... check status
Goedert-TE-Phi.... out a few weeks
J. Casey-DL-Den.... out for the year
B. Edwards, H. Ruggs-WR-LV.... check status, could miss the game
M. Pittman-WR-Ind... will miss time

COVID UOPDATE
As you might have seen, TEN had 3 players test positive....  MIN has yet to have anyone test positive.... 
We will monitor this situation throughout the week but you might want to make plans accordingly for potentially players losing time.

Kamara a monster game, helped out by atrocious tackling by GB
If I'm a defense, I cover 15 yards downfield against Brees, that's it...his arm looks like Eddie Harris from Major League.... get out the Bardol
Kansas City is the most fun team to watch since The Greatest Show on Turf!
ARod to Lazard is a thing
Say so-long to Mitch Trubisky... hello to Nick Foles
Congrats to the Falcons on their history-making feat!!... back to back weeks of huge blown leads in Q4 and no chatter of D. Quinn being ousted?... maybe he has compromising pictures of Mr. Blank.
Dak throws for 472 meaningless yards, well, unless he's on your fantasy team or you're playing against him
New Record: 14 TD passes through 3 games...  DangeRUSS is the man!!
Did you see Metcalf pull a Leon Lett?
What is Detroit doing?....  get Swift involved, 1-catch and no carries is inexcusable
Golladay got a TD to save his otherwise terrible day
Statline of the Week: Mike Evans: 2-catches... 2-yards... 2-TD's
Ekeler needs Herbert at QB for LAC
So does Allen
Big pickups from last week fantasy points: M. Davis (19.10), D. Freeman (1.0), D. Schultz (6.80)
TE Leaders for Week 3: Graham, Kroft, Ebron, Tanyan, Allie-Cox... if you know where all of them play, you are a true degenerate fantasy player and I love you!! 
Brian Hill (14.50) almost doubled or more-than-doubled the points of: Carson, Jacobs, Drake, Mixon, Montgomery, Gordon
I was wrong on the Henderson kid from LAR...  he runs hard and has a lot of talent.
The week of the rookie WR's: J. Jefferson (27.00), C. Wilson (25.50), Aiyuk (18.60), T. Higgins (18.50), G. Davis (10.10), C. Lamb (9.10), Jeudy (8.00)
Philly and Cincy both should be ashamed of their play-calling in OT
James Connor, any questions?
Wentz is barely playable right now...  he looks gun-shy and his body language exudes zero confidence
Joe Mion owners, you can't be happy having a RB39 but paying for a RB Top 10!
Alson Smith is a beast: DL1!
19 LB's are over 10PPG with J. Baker leading the way: 12.67ppg
Some very disappointing LB's: Hicks (7ppg), Littleton (5ppg), Edmunds (4ppg), I. Simmons (2ppg)
NYJ and NYG are barely NFL teams let alone fantasy relevant... highest scoring NYJ: B. Berrios (14.40 #64); NYG: no player in the Top 100!!
Patriots being Patriots....  no idea who will score big week-to-week...  this week was Burkhead (31.30) and Michel (15.00)
I was wrong about Cam....  he looks like a great fit in NE.
 
 
TEAM OF THE WEEK 3
Congrats to CHIEFS (P. Felker) in EL 2 for scoring 253.70 to snag the honor!
Week 1: The Truth Ertz (R. Patricio) EL 1, 243.40
Week 2: Jimmy Whispers (M. Mazzoni), EL 10, 259.44
 
 
All Star Team Week 3
QB: P. Mahomes (48.00)
RB: Kamara (38.20), R. Burkhead (31.30)
WR: Lockett (32.50), J. Jefferson (27.00), C. Wilson (25.50)
TE: J. Graham (21.00)
PK: Gostkowski (25.00)
DL: Donald (20), Garrett (18), A. Smith (17)
LB: S. Thompson  (21), C. Lawson (19), S.  Barrett (16)
CB: X. Rhodes (19)
S: H. Smith (15)
 
Who says kickers are an afterthought?
Gostkowski was the #20 fantasy scorer this week! 
 
Have a fantastic week!!

Tuesday Tango

09/22/20
Week 2 in the books....   and I have never seen anything like it.

And this is only WEEK 2!!!!
 
I think we can safely say:
If 2020 was a football team, it would be the NY Jets
Chase Young looks like what Clowney should have been
Cam is back
DangeRUSS is good
Brees looks like he has a noodle arm
ARod is on a mission
Justin Herbert looked good and is tough
Mahomes had a "bad" game and still put up 31pts
Raise your hand if you had Wentz, Brees and Brady as un-startable
How about that two-way cover for Fournette, if you know what I mean! 
Maybe Minshew Mania is real
How are those 1st Round picks looking?
Henry looks like a decoy in TEN right now
Did TY Hilton retire and not tell anyone?
Put a fork in Gurley
No Sony Side Up, he's a broken egg
If you had Ridley and Gage out-pointing Julio, you're a winner!
A.Jones is looking like The Edge, pure stud
Falcons had the best seat in the house on the onside kick
Robbie Anderson, WR6... see what happens when players leave Gase!
Dalton Schultz, that's all
DK Metcalf looks like 2020's version of TO
How did playing Hines Week 2 work out for ya?
Looks like a back-and-forth year for Ingram-Dobbins duo
Darius Leonard and Bobby Wagner have turned into The Boz
Deepest TE group I have ever seen in fantasy.... 12 are over 10ppg with Jonnu Smith leading the way at 17
 
Top Starting lineup through 2 games:
QB:: R. Wilson (41.60)
RB: A. Jones (29.60), A. Kamara (27.55)

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!!

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

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!

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?!?!
