View Full Version : Do I Stand a Chance
So coming into tonight's game, I am up 22 points vs. my opponent.
He has NE's: Tom Brady, TE Rob Gronkowski and RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis who have yet to play. At this point, Green-Ellis is listed as "questionable." Not to mention, he has struggled the past couple weeks.
I have NE's: Stephen Gostkowski (K) who has yet to play.
Do I stand a chance to win this one, or should I chalk it up as a loss? I am thinking that I will lose this one.

You're toast. Brady's going to throw for 900 yards; welker and gronkowski won't catch any.

You'll lose by 15, at a minimum.
I like my situation a lot better than yours, and I don't even like it that much.
I'm up 24 points.
I have Gronkowski.
He has Brady and LawFirm.

I'm up 31 and he has Gronk going....I'm actually concerned I'll lose.
The bad news for you is that Brady gets about 1/2 a point for every point Gronk gets, not counting the untold number of yardage that Welker and Hernandez are likely to put on us.
And even if they jump out to a 30 point lead and try to milk the clock, BJE is going to get most of the carries.
You're not completely fucked...but you're certainly mostly fucked.

I'm down 1 and change..... he has Welkah and Gronk, I've got Hernandez and NE's D.
The more Palko pick-six's, the better.

You're going to win by 22.
All I needed yesterday was 12 points from Eli Manning to win my game. 12 points. At halftime I think he had -1 points. Negative one. Then he came storming back. As his last drive started he had 10 points. Completion! Completion! He had 11 points! Then 13 points! Yes! Yes! Victory! Then he got sacked and lost a fumble, going backwards to 11 points as the game ended. I hate fantasy football.
So what I need to happen is this:
Brady gets Pollarded immediately.
Green-Ellis's questionable status carries over to the game and he gets slim to no carries.
Faulk/Ridley run the ball to the 35-40 yard line before being stopped every time and Gostkowski nails hella field goals.
Backup QP Hoyer is unable to hit Gronkowski.
and MOST IMPORTANTLY
The Chiefs don't end up signing and starting Hoyer for 3 years.
Well.... this didn't work out.....
