This Week’s Top Team: 87 points? Damn it all to hell, maybe I counted wrong….
QB: Drew Brees: Brees, unfortunately, had no reason to produce much through the air. His running back tandem destroyed the Giants psyche and boosted the Saints into the 2 seed in the NFC. Drew had 9 points.
RB: Ladell Betts: 129 yards and 2 touchdwons for Ladell hooked me up with 25 points, and he ranked 5th amongst runners in Week 16.
RB: LaDainian Tomlinson: LT’s had a human day against Seattle, rushing for 120+ and catching a pass for 10 yards. No scores for the TD King though, as LT came out with 13 fantasy points.
WR: Terrell Owens: TO had more drops (3) than catches (2) but his 23 yards and 1 score were good enough for 8 fantasy points. Thanks.
WR: Javon Walker: Javon had 52 yards and a touchdown, a few points better than TO, but not nearly good enough for me to be happy. 11 points for J-Walk.
TE: Antonio Gates: Zero. Rivers looked real bad, as Gates didn’t have a chance to do much. He’s still the best TE in fantasy football, though, as he raked in 67 yards on two grabs. 6 points.
K: Adam Vinitieri: To go along with my teams theme this week, Vini had 6 total points. Yeah!
D: Bears: After drastically underperforming once again, the Bears walked away with 9 fantasy points. Yes!
LUCKY’S Week 16 SLEEPERS
Matt Hasselbeck: This guy has played real bad of late, hopefully for the Hawks that business stops right quick. Matt had 4 points in a Seattle loss.
Jay Cutler: Jay had 13 points as he threw for 2 TD’s for the 4th straight time since he started for Jake Plummer. Kid’s gonna be money.
Edgerrin James: Edge only had 10, but double figures for the former dreaded one isn’t a bad total this year, he had 105 rushing yards on Sunday.
Ron Dayne: “Even though Indy did a nice job slowing the run against the Bengals, I think they’ll have trouble this week with Dayne. Ron has been running well, so don’t be surprised if he has a nice week at home.” Nice? Try 3rd ranked back in Week 16, try 153 rushing yards and 2 touchdowns. 27 points for the chubby runner.
Anquan Boldin: ‘Quan had 6 whole fantasy points. Not the production I needed, as I lost my Fantasy Super Bowl by 10 points. Of course, the 1 point from Chad Johnson didn’t help me much either.
Marques Colston: The young rook had 34 yards and a score, good for 9 points, not too bad at all.
Algae Crumpler: Crump had 3 points, good for, eh, pretty much nothing…
Indy Colts DST: After an encouraging performance against a surging Bengals squad, the Colts sucked bad against the Texans. Which almost seems impossible. Anyway, 2 points continues to make me look stupid this week.
LUCKY’S Week 16 Moss’S
Jon Kitna: Kitna blew me out of the water, busting out 3 touchdowns against a suddenly suspect secondary in Bear country. 21 points for the slanging Lion.
Deuce McCallister: Well the Giants were in for a long day, because they had no answer for Deuce and Reggie. I was wrong. Not the first time.
Keyshawn Johnson: 2 fantasy points…. It’s nice to be correct from time to time, I’ll tell ya.
Randy Moss: Is this guy still playing football? Haven’t heard anything from him in sometime now. He was out this weekend, and he’ll be out next weekend, and hmmm… will we ever see the great Randy again?
