Match-up Highlights:

Knuttsach Jones v.s. Backroad Bullies

124.96 - 149.72

Top Players for Michael

  • Doug Baldwin - 23.80
  • Dak Prescott - 26.66
  • Ezekiel Elliott - 15.30

Bad Moves

  • I thought I would take a chance and play Curtis Samuel after Kelvin Benjamin was traded to the Bills. I was not rewarded for this. Samuel gave me 6.70 points while Mike Wallace sat on the bench with 11.90.

Top Players for Derrick

  • T.Y. Hilton - 34.50
  • Tyrod Taylor - 26.98
  • Terrance Williams - 23.10

Bad Moves

  • Derrick maximized his potential and worked out for him as he took home the victory.

Mud Dogs v.s. Chargers_UK

150.80 - 53.90

Top Players for Richard

  • Alshon Jeffery - 26.40
  • Russell Wilson - 25.58
  • Demaryius Thomas - 21.00

Bad Moves

  • Like usual, Richard knows what he’s doing and he played a mistake-less game against Thomas, who is the “Taco” of this league. (The League reference, nerds.)

“Top” Players for Thomas

  • Jeremy Maclin - 17.80
  • Davante Adams - 12.30
  • Jamaal Williams - 11.20

Bad Moves

  • Doing this league was a bad move for Thomas

Trips Right v.s. Cry Me a Rivers

134.14 - 136.68

Top Players for Ruben

  • Cam Newton - 20.80
  • Javorious Allen - 19.50
  • Evan Engram - 17.00

Bad Moves

  • “Little Cooper Kupp” left much to be wanted after he caught neither of Jared Goff’s four touchdowns. Ted Ginn Jr. sat on the bench and outscored Kupp 15.90 to 8.40.

Top Players for Aaron

  • Jay Cutler - 24.44
  • Matthew Stafford - 22.44
  • Marqise Lee - 21.50

Bad Moves

  • Aaron kept two kickers on his team that were both on byes. I’d try to tear him up a little more for it but he still won so... congrats.

No Punt Intended v.s. Azor Ajayi

153.88 - 154.30

Top Players for Cody

  • Carson Wentz - 24.76
  • Brandin Cooks - 20.60
  • Golden Tate - 18.30

Bad Moves

  • It’s understandable for someone to choose Marcus Mariota over Jacoby Brissett yet this choice did not work out for Cody. The point difference between the two (3.20) would have given him the victory. Tough luck.

Top Players for Daniel

  • Robert Woods - 23.00
  • Alvin Kamara - 20.60
  • Travis Kelce - 20.30

Bad Moves

  • For some reason, Daniel went with a no-name receiver over the veteran Randall Cobb. It did not work out in his favor as Cobb outscored TJ Jones 10.90 to 4.90 points.

Go Bears! v.s. Sam Kweon’s Tweets!

166.94 - 108.18

Top Players for Max

  • Jared Goff - 28.44
  • Matt Forte - 25.66
  • Christian McCaffrey - 20.40

Bad Moves

  • Max pitched a perfect game and it was exactly what he needed to do in order to beat the juggernaut that is Lou.

Top Players for Lou

  • Marvin Jones Sr. - 29.70
  • Deandre Hopkins - 20.60
  • Eli Manning - 13.80

Bad Moves

  • Lou just doing Lou things. Made all the right moves yet he walked away with a rare “L”.

Sans Diego v.s. Free OJ with Brunch

110.64 - 111.72

Top Players for Jason

  • Todd Gurley - 24.40
  • Carlos Hyde - 21.50
  • Michael Thomas - 14.50

Bad Moves

  • Cole Beasley finally had a breakout game and he also happened to be benched on Jason’s squad. Beasley accrued 18.40 points while starter Bruce Ellington managed just 5.20.

Top Players for Roger

  • Matt Ryan - 19.42
  • Tyreek Hill - 15.30
  • Jarvis Landry - 15.20

Bad Moves

  • Rishard Matthews son’d Mike Evans while on the bench to the tune of 17.00 points to 2.30.
