Week 8 Fantasy Wrap-Up


This was my best week of fantasy football in recent memory.  All three of my teams were victorious, meaning I am now in sole possession of first-place in my division in two leagues and am tied for first-place in another.  Here is what happened in the official POD league.

Better Than Millen (me) 94.52
STUD: QB Jake Delhomme 20.72
DUD: K Jason Elam 2
BENCHED: WR Devery Henderson 9.4
OPTIMUM: 103.62 RATING: 91%
Motown Madmen (Jettero2112) 72.86
STUD: QB Drew Brees 30.96
DUD: D/ST 49ers 0
BENCHED: RB Kevin Faulk 16.7
OPTIMUM: 109.76 RATING: 66%

In the POD overflow league, I won 116.94-97.02 and had a 99% coach rating.  What's even better is that I got 31.54 points out of Philip Rivers as my starting QB and had David Garrard sitting on the bench with 30.22 points.  I also have Jay Cutler on that team, meaning I probably should look to unload a QB.  In the SBN/AOL league, I won by the narrow margin of 93.6-91.8 and had another 99% coach rating.

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