Of course. I was the third-highest scorer in the league this week, and I played the second-highest scorer. 2011, all over again. Play well, but face an opponent every week who's rocking it.

Welp. The upside is that the players I selected look pretty good. I need to think longterm here, and just assume that 2011 isn't going to happen again.
  • Matt Ryan, of course, tore up the Chiefs.
  • LeSean McCoy had a weak outing, but you figure that can't happen too often (though he has a brutal matchup next week).
  • Matt Forte really showed the Bears he needs to be their primary ball carrier in scoring situations.
  • Houston's defense looks great.
  • Really, really disappointed with my wide receivers. I don't think there's a single person in the league that has a better WR corps than I do with Jennings, Green, and Bryant. But combined, they scored just north of 18 points, which is good for lowest in the league this week. If I had gotten one strong performance out of any of them, I win the league this week. So you gotta figure that's going to be a rare occurrence.
  • That stat about my WRs, by the way, comes courteous of Yahoo!'s new "recap" feature, which compares my stats to those across the league.
  • Other recap information: Matt Ryan led the league in scoring with 32.46 points, and I led this matchup all the way up to the final Monday night game, when McFadden finally surpassed me.
  • My bench RB situation is really, really rough at the RB position. Between Mark Ingram, David Wilson, and Rashad Jennings, I received a grand total of 3.90 points. Mark Ingram still has a chance to rebound, and I love David Wilson. But Jennings is off this bench right now, replaced by Arizona's Ryan Williams.
  • Everybody laughed at me for drafting three Titans receivers, but other than Kendall Wright (who I've replaced with a lackluster Titus Young), Jared Cook and Nate Washington are the only people Locker throws it to.
I'm 0-1, 6th in the league. Third in scoring.

I lost in the other league as well, as I put up 98 points but played the guy with the highest point total of the week. In this league, I played the guy with the 2nd highest point total.

2011, continued.
