Week 9 Fantasy Wrap-Up

New, comment

I was very lucky to play an opponent that only scored 57 points this week.  Scoring only 75.28 points is usually going to get you beat, but this week I caught a break.  Even if I would have lost I did have a pretty good excuse that was waiting to be used.  All but two of my bench players were on a bye.  On top of that, Matt Hasselbeck, who wasn't on a bye, didn't play due to an injury.  That meant that I had only one active bench player this week, and he was a kicker.

Here are the details of my win:

West Coast Lions (LVLionfan) 57
STUD: D/ST Jets 18
DUD: RB Warrick Dunn 0
BENCHED: QB Matt Ryan 18.9
Better Than Millen (me) 75.28
STUD: QB Gus Frerotte 23.28
DUD: TE Tony Scheffler 0
BENCHED: K Kris Brown 3
OPTIMUM: 75.28 RATING: 100%

In the POD overflow league, I won 88.58-62.46 and had a 98% coach rating.  The win improved my record to 6-3, which is good enough for first place in my division.  In the SBN/AOL league, I suffered my first embarrassing defeat.  I got beat 104.75-61.4.  Before this, my only other loss was by .08 of a point, so this thankfully was a rare occurrence. 

I'd like to say that it will be the last blowout I suffer in the SBN/AOL league, but injuries are becoming a problem for me.  Tony Romo has been out for the last few weeks and is on a bye this coming Sunday.  The player I replaced him with, Kyle Orton, is out for a month with an injury, meaning my QB situation is not looking very good.  To make matters even worse, Reggie Bush has been out with an injury, leaving me with a shortage of running backs.

Anyways, the results from the official POD league can be found after the jump.
