Week 2 Fantasy Wrap-Up


Heading into Week 2, I was worried that my three teams' performances in week 1 were flukes.  I say that only because in fantasy football you can go from being the best one week to being the worst another, so my concern was that I would quickly go from being dominant to being dominated.  Thankfully, that wasn't the case in any of my leagues as all three of my teams were once again victorious.

I'll get to my official league match-up in a second, but first want to share what happened in my other two leagues.  In the POD overflow league I won 95.38-53.84 and had a coach rating of 79%, and in the SBN/AOL league I won 91.5-73.85 and had a coach rating of 84%.  The SBN/AOL score would have been closer if DeSean Jackson didn't make one of the dumbest plays in NFL history, but it wouldn't have changed the end result anyways.

One other thing I have to mention from the POD overflow league is just how close things can be in fantasy football.  Team "Mountain Dew" beat "the G men" by a score of 134.78-134.14.  I can't even imagine how much it would suck to be on the losing side of that match-up.

Anyways, here is how I did in the official Pride of Detroit league this week:

Better Than Millen (me)
STUD: WR Santana Moss 27.1
DUD: QB Matt Hasselbeck 4.76
BENCHED: D/ST Packers 23
OPTIMUM: 137.76 RATING: 93%
Just go away Favre (ahtrap)
STUD: QB Aaron Rodgers 32.62
DUD: WR Ronald Curry 0
BENCHED: RB Chris Perry 11.6
OPTIMUM: 127.32 RATING: 87%

Even though I got absolutely no production out of my starting quarterback I still put up a huge amount of points.  The reason for that is because outside of Hasselbeck and Michael Turner, every other one of my players scored in double digits.  Hell, even my tight end, Tony Scheffler, scored 18.1 points for me.

A full look at how everyone fared this week can be found after the jump.
