It’s time for the 1st Annual Eligible Receiver Midseason Awards in which we use our excellent football intelligence and logical deduction skills to confer completely made up awards to NFL players. Also, lots of pictures. Enjoy!
Things that made me happy about this week: Megatron, Megatron, Megatron. Things that didn't make me happy: Cowboys, Cowboys, Cowboys. I did manage to beat one of our top players in my fun league this week, even after starting Michael '-0.7' Vick at QB, so that's pretty alright. Studs, duds, surprises and a really long rant about Dez Bryant below.
Two (somewhat delusional) truths and a lie. Can you spot the lie?
1. Tony Romo threw for 441 yards and had MORE touchdowns (3) than interceptions (2).
2. My fantasy team is going to the playoffs!
3. The Cowboys are going to win the NFC East this year.
Dez Bryant (WR, Cowboys)
Oh Dez, you pesky little criminal, you. Allegedly he had 2 TDs and 145 yards on Thanksgiving. You know what I see what I check his stats? A fumble. And you know what I saw every time I came inside from dinner and checked the score of the game? Butterfingers dropping passes. Happy Thanksgiving, you scoundrel.
At what point do I stop investing time in fantasy football? Is it when I have the same record as the Cleveland Browns? Or the Kansas City CHEFS? Clearly not, because that's where my team is now and yet I'm still writing this post like I think I'm a person worthy of listening to. You should probably all stop reading now and never ever take my advice....
