Fantasy Football 2013-14 Week 3 Recap

Well, its that time again; my weekly fantasy football review. You know; this is where I tell you about how I thought I had it figured out, but one or more of my players didn't live up to the internet's expectations, rendering them utterly useless(?). This week I ended up 2-1 with my fantasy teams. I clinched one of the 2 wins with a halfback pass executed by Darren McFadden of the Oakland Raiders(as seen in the groovy gif above). With so many injuries and shortcomings on my team, Joint Account,  I'm starting to scout for potential trade situations to help pull me from the doldrums of the Business & Beer league. Below is how I fared this week:

Fantasy Football 2013-14 Week 2 Recap

Week 2 went much better for me and my fantasy football teams, as I went 3-0 on the weekend; improving 2 of my teams to 1-1 on the season, and one 2-0. 

I still have a little ways to go as far as setting my lineups for optimal point production each week, but it's early, and now is the time to work out the kinks. Check me out tho(in blue, bruh):

-trifeckta Puts the Kibosh on Touch Money

Touch Money fell just short of projections and got 92.4% of their projected 130.56 points. Michael Vick, with 37.22 points, brought in the second-highest score in the league this week. trifeckta started one player with zero points while Touch Money also served up one goose egg, meaning both teams could have scored more points.

Fantasy Football 2013-14 Week 1 Recap

7 TDs! WHO KNEW?! Yeah, go ahead with your 20/20 hindsight; you ain't foolin' me! NOBODY knew that Peyton would go off like that, in Week 1 nonetheless. And with me having 3 fantasy football teams, you expect me to have him on at least ONE team, ...right? Nah. In drafting, I was tryin' to be cute and grab up all-star receivers and the best running back on the board, and thought he'd slip to the 5th round(which he never really did when it was time for me to pick, but whatever man). ANYWAY, here's how my Week 1 shook down(my teams in blue):

Drew Brees led Opossum Hunters with 21.48 points while DeMarco Murray brought in 12.50. Adding insult to injury, Opossum Hunters got goose eggs from both James Jones and Zach Sudfeld. barry sandersocks kicks off the campaign with a 1-0 record, good enough for second place. Opossum Hunters begins at 0-1 and in 10th place." Started Vick, Jared Cook, Demayius Thomas, and Tampa Defense for the win.

STILL almost pulled out the win, had RG3 not been so shell-shocked and threw them INTs!

Trifeckta's Fantasy Football 2013-14

YES! The 2013-14 NFL season is officially upon us. Being as American as possible, I have already drafted my fantasy football teams that I will manage throughout the season (yeah, plural; don't YOU judge Me): #TwitterFantasyFootball, one league with the homies, and another league team comprised of college buddies and business associates.

If you're familiar with the joy and splendor that is fantasy football, then I shouldn't have to tell you what's on the line here. But, for those who live in the darkness that is life without interest in sports and/or ESPN, fantasy football is all about proving that you know a little something about the game of American football, and being able to back up all your trash talk and random sports fact banter on social networks by achieving a certain level of success with your fantasy football prowess. No, but for real, it's another way to learn, keep up with, and enjoy futball Americana. Some leagues offer a monetary pot and/or weekly winnings, others a end-of-the-season trophy, and most just offer bragging rights among comrades.

Anyway, I offer up to you the chance to ride shotgun with me on this season's fantasy football roller coaster. I will get in my feelings win or lose, and I may even turn into statistical nerd right before your very eyes. One thing is for sure: I will have fun, and since I'm such a congenial and gracious host, you will enjoy it as well.
