Best Buy League, week 14

Postby 204BC » Tue Dec 14, 2004 11:38 am

Boy did I botch it up this week. The cutoff for prizes was 292 points, I scored 289, my best week yet. Here’s the part that kills me. I have pretty much used up most of the usual suspects for tag players at this point in the season (Manning, CPepper, Priest, etc) and I didn’t feel really strongly about any of the players I had on the roster this week. It came down to Drew Bennett or Julius Jones. I picked JJ, considering he had what I believed to be a very favorable matchup with New Orleans. Here’s how it worked out, Julius Jones scored 19 points, with the 2x tag on him I got 38. Drew Bennett scored 53!!, If I had tagged him I would have gotten 106!!! Let’s do the math, 289 minus 19 = 270, now add 53 and I get 323, which would have tied me for first place!!! Crap, that’s about as close as I’m going to get I think. Please excuse me while I go bang my head against a wall……..

Yeah, I did exactly what you did (tagged Julius and had Bennett in there), but I didn't get anywhere near the points you did.

I did outscore everyone in the Cafe League this week though! Yay for me! ;-D

That sucks...nice picks, though.

I did horrible...I really took a gamble with my tag, thinking that the Oakland D would get shredded. Shredded? Yes...but by freaking TJ Duckett...ugh.

Vick X2
Droughns (ugh)
A. Green (ugh)
D. Mason (wrong Titan)
D. Jackson
Gates (oh boy...)
K. Brown...hmm...
Cardinals...leaves a lot to be desired.
Total of a pathetic 167. :-t

This was my first week in a long while that my tag laid an egg. I had Reuben Droughns.
:-o :-o

Lowest scoring week in a while... 169 points and I'm out of the top 1,000 now.
