FANTASY FOOTBALL SURPRISES AND DISAPPOINTMENTS- WEEK 17
FANTASY FOOTBALL SURPRISES AND DISAPPOINTMENTS – WEEK 17
By Eddie Sebastian
Happy New Year! Many fantasy football leagues are having their championships this week. Good luck to everybody.
The sports world is mourning the loss of Hall of Fame coach and longtime broadcaster John Madden, who died Tuesday, December 28 at the age of 85. I grew up playing Madden Football and watching him on Sundays with Pat Summerall. Rest in peace, coach.
Trey Lance: Q.B.-The 49ers needed to win to stay in the playoff hunt. The rookie from North Dakota stepped in for an injured Jimmy Garoppolo and completed 16-of-23 passes for 249 yards, 2 touchdowns, and an interception in the 49ers‘ 23-7 win over the Texans. He also had 31 rushing yards.
Ja’Marr Chase: W.R.- Why couldn’t you have had this game two weeks ago when I lost my semifinal game by 6 points? Anyway, the rookie of the year candidate obliterated the Kansas City Chiefs defense with 266 receiving yards and 3 TDs. 44.60 points.
Pittsburgh: DEF- T.J. Watt and the Steelers Defense had 9 sacks and 2 interceptions while holding the Browns to 14 points. And running back Najee Harris carried the rock for 188 yards and a touchdown in Big Ben’s final home game at Heinz Field.
Dalvin Cook: R.B. The Vikings running back crapped the bed this week with only 1.30 points. Seriously that’s it. He ran it 9 times for 13 yards and caught 3 passes for 0 yards in the Vikings’ blowout loss to the Packers 37-10.
Antonio Brown: W.R.- A.B. claims the Buccaneers coaches and staffers tried to force him to re-enter the game against the Jets despite a nagging ankle injury he had reportedly tweaked last week in practice. Coach Arians told him to get off the field if he wasn’t going to re-enter the game. Brown removed his jersey and walked off the field, likely ending his N.F.L. career. He only had 2.60 points.
Tua Tagovailoa: Q.B.- The Dolphins were on a 7 game winning streak and needed a win to keep their playoff hopes alive. Well, it wasn’t meant to be as Tua Tagovailoa crapped the bed against the Titans. He completed just 18-of-38 passes for 205 yards, 0 touchdowns, 1 interception, and a fumble in the Dolphins‘ 34-3 loss. 4.30 points.
Dallas Cowboys: DEF- The last four weeks, Dem Hot Boyz have scored 24.00, 30.00, 25.00, and 32.00 points. On Sunday, they had 2.00 points. The Cowboys only had 1 sack in their 25-22 loss to the Arizona Cardinals.
