It's only the 3rd week of the football season, but I'm starting to see a trend. My weekly fantasy football opponents always seem to have a player that goes ape sh*t against me for no apparent reason. Last week Victor Cruz, Brent Celek, and Dwayne Bowe had the game of their lives and this week Jamaal Charles, A.J. Green, and Torrey Smith looked like hall of famers. In the case of Smith I'm ok with it given the tragic loss of his brother Saturday night (what an inspirational performance by him and A.J. Green is quickly becoming a top 5 receiver, but Charles? I'm pretty sure he won't rush for 233 yards next week. Why flex so hard when I'm playing you?
In my trash talking league I'm down by 12, but I have Marshawn "Beast Mode" Lynch going tonight so things could change for me real quickly. In my hurt your feelings league I got my feelings hurt for the 2nd week in a row. I need a slump buster to come through on the schedule pretty quickly. In my family league I'm down by 31, but again I have Beast Mode going and Earl Thomas on D. The best case scenario for tonight? The Seahawks win and Marshawn rushed for 200 yards and 3 touchdowns. That should make everybody happy! Here are some observations over the weekend.
