Week 7 Fantasy Wrap-Up

New, comments

My team in the official POD fantasy football league has sadly started performing like I initially expected it to.  I'm having trouble racking up points, and in a league like this, that is never a good thing.  Defense may win championships in the NFL, but in fantasy football it's all about scoring points, which is something my team is struggling to do recently.

This week I was not only beat, but my optimum wouldn't have given me a victory, either.  At the same time, my opponent's optimum was really big, so I lucked out to lose by this small of a deficit.

Better Than Millen (me) 87.8
STUD: RB LenDale White 35.6
DUD: D/ST Saints 0
BENCHED: D/ST Packers 19
OPTIMUM: 111.7 RATING: 78%

STUD: RB Chris Johnson 25.2
DUD: RB Ronnie Brown 2.8
BENCHED: QB Trent Edwards 18.04
OPTIMUM: 141.54 RATING: 81%

I am now 4-3 in both the official league and the overflow league, as I won 79.82-76.22 in the latter (and had a 90% coach rating).  Jay Cutler had me worried as late as the third quarter in last night's game against the Patriots, as he had his worst game of the season.  Thankfully a late touchdown pass put me ahead to give me the victory. 

In the SBN/AOL league, my domination continued this week, as I won 99.85-81.8 and had a 96% coach rating.  My record in that league is now 6-1, and I am nine-tenths of a point away from being undefeated.  Even without Tony Romo, my team is in good shape after Kyle Orton stepped in as my starter this week and played well.

The rest of the scores from the official POD league can be found after the jump.
