A Sweep of a Different Sort TWIFS

I don't want to talk about this. Last week my teams were on overdrive. This week however, we lost Miles Austin, Beanie Wells, and had a complete melt down of our Running corps.

Let's start with the Maulers who lost 107-89. Starks (RB) and BGE (RB) got -2 and 1 respectively. Grossman (QB) got 12. Shout outs for Gronkowski, Wallace and the Steelers D for keeping it in shooting distance.

Now on to the Haldimand Thunder  who lost 101 to 94. Again BGE had 1 point which f'd us. Dieon Branch had 0 points which didn't help. Ryan Fitzpatrick and McFadden both scored over 20 pts so props to them.

Next is the Hamilton Stingers, who were wiped out 156-87. This game was pretty much unwinnable.

And finally the Tornadoes lost 103-92. Beanie Wells out and Mendenhall got 3 points. The Eagles DST had 3 pts too. Thanks to Stafford, and the Johnsons for keeping this close.

Let's start with the Caledonia Maulers who picked up the Steelers DST from waivers to get 19 pts! A big shout-out to Miles Austin for 32 pts. But really the whole line was amazing! Kasay (K) had 14 pts, Moss and Wallace (WRs) had over 30 pts combined, waiver wire pickup Starks (RB) had 11 pts and Green-Ellis (RB) had 13 pts. Finally waiver wire pickup Grossman (QB) snagged 19 pts!
Final Score: 158 Maulers - 68 Domination
Analysis: Damn! Even my Bench did well (Packers DST 14 pts and Henderson (WR) 16 pts). The guy who gave up the Steelers must be kicking himself! I believe this is probably my highest score in fantasy football thusfar.

Now for the Hamilton Thunder who in addition to Austin (32 pts remember) had both RBs (Fred Jackson and D. McFadden) getting 49 pts combined! Vick got 17 pts and throw in Henderson's 16 and Kasays 14 you get...
Final Score: 148 Thunder- 85 Trollshrouds
Analysis: Another unbelievable performance by everyone involved.

Next is the Hamilton Stingers, they had Tony Romo getting 25 pts, Ben Tate and Michael Turner (RBs) combining for 30pts, Austin's 32, Steve Johnson's 15 and Kasay's 12
Final Score: 146 Stingers- 93 Wreckin' Crew
Analysis: Simply amazing. Another blow out win. Austin has earned his pay.

Finally its the Tornadoes, who were going against my father's team the Rhinos. If you followed my fantasy teams last year you'll know that I suffered a devastating loss to them in the Championship. Out for blood, Matt Stafford (a risky draft pick) snapped up a monster 33 pts. Mendenhall (RB) had 13 pts, the Johnson's (WR) totaled 30 pts. Rob Gronkowski had an amazing 20 pts at tight end and Kasay again had 14 pts.
Final Score: 118 Tornadoes - 100 Rhinos.
Analysis: Finally some revenge. A dish best served with a 4 team sweep.

Welcome Back to TWIFF 2011: WEEK 1

This year rather than having college teams I've elected to have 4 NFL teams. Let's see how they did:

First is the Caledonia Maulers. With Peyton Manning injured, his brother Eli had to step up, snagging 14 pts. RBs Steven Jackson and Green-Ellis totaled 20 pts combined. My WRs and TE totalled 46 pts and kicker David Akers put the cherry on top with 15 pts.
Final Score: 106 Caledonia Maulers - 96 Leathernecks
Analysis: Great first win, team looks good, going to have to pick up someone to replace Peyton, busy waiver wire this week.

Up next is the Hamilton Stingers. Starting QB Tony Romo played well getting 21 pts. Primary RB Michael Turner got 12 pts. My receiving corps totaled 44 pts (Miles Austin, Jimmy Graham and Steve Johnson). The Chargers DST and John Kasay rounded out the team with 24 pts.
Final Score: 105 Hamilton Stingers - 63  Mother Green
Analysis: Another great win, Romo played great, and the whole team looked brilliant.

The Tornadoes are part of the league that my family is playing in. I took a late pick with Matt Stafford as QB which payed off with 28 pts. Green-Ellis got my 9 pts on RB, but it was my receiving corps that was the monster 52 points. The Eagles luckily made up an error on my part (Hartley was out and I didn't have time to change him) with 19 pts.
Final Score: 110 Tornadoes - 83 AJ Crushers
Analysis: Should be even better once I get an active kicker

Finally the Haldimand Thunder played well too. Michael Vick scored 26 points and McFadden got 15 pts. My tightend and kicker both fell short.
Final Score: 105 Cowboys - 93 Thunder
Analysis: Going to get some new TE & K, over a good start
