PostSubject: Monster Matchup Week 14 TT   Wed Dec 06, 2017 4:06 pm



And we are down to 8. 4 in DD, 4 in TT. Nerves are a jangling, hopes are up. The best of times, the worst of times, depending on the result of course. This week will see 4 more go and just 4 move on. I'm shitting myself to be honest!

Anyway, let's take a look at the TT. After last week, Dave / Ben's Norfolk Bombers progressed against the Golddiggers and Craig's Naperville Divine shocked the Pigskins.

Joe had the #1 seed and quickly called out the Bombers, leaving Todd's Steelcats to face Divine. A quick look at projected scores means I have no say in which matchup to cover again this week as Todd hasn't posted a lineup. Again. I like Todd and he has a fearsome roster but if he wins this week, the article next week is gonna be real short and I ain't joking. I can only do this on a Wednesday night and it's enough work without guessing a starting line-up so hoping if Todd makes it, he submits at least a stab at a line-up by this point.



Anyway, this week's Monster Matchup is:

Vs.

An instant advantage for the Knights (NWK) with 2 QBs to the Bombers (NB) 1. Joe puts out Brees who has been disappointing this year, eclipsed by Ingram and Kamara, and Jared Goff who has been a revelation but has a tough opponent in the Eagles, and their frightening pass rush. Ben counters with Wentz - with a much better matchup than he had last week - against the Rams.

Edge: Knights



NWK press the numerical advantage with 4 RBs to the NB's 3. ROTY Alvin Kamara heads the list - does the matchup really matter? - and is ably supported by Kenyon Drake, now alone in his backfield. He'll get plenty of chances against the Pats this week. Alex Collins has looked good but is suffering from migraines so a current Q and the 4th stringer is Deon Lewis who would be a RB2 if he could get the odd touchdown. That's a strong bunch.

Ben plays Lamarr Miller and there might be plenty of carries at home to San Fran, Carlos Hyde on the opposite side of the same game and Duke Johnson Jr who has been great until last week. Not bad, but no match.

Edge: Knights



And on to the WRs where NB close the gap. The bombers go with 4. Keenan Allen is a top 3 WR over the past few weeks and should continue that against Washington. Dez looked better last week and the Giants aren't scaring anyone. Crowder has a tough go against the Chargers but Will Fuller will fancy his chances of a big play if he can return from injury this week.

The Knights play 3. Brandin Cooks was great against Miami 2 weeks ago and may get a better target share with Gronk out. Mike Evans should do well against the poor Lions but not a fan of Sammy Watkins matchup in Philly.

Edge: Bombers



And TE sees Ben level up the numbers. The consistent Delanie Walker is balanced out by the inconsistent Jack Doyle. Joe just starts waiver add Stephen Anderson and it's a ballsy move - I'll probably be starting him if Ertz doesn't make it this week too. He looked great last week and is in a prime spot, especially if Fuller can't go. But still...



Edge: Bombers

Kickers. They are people too. But I still have no idea which one will score more than the other. We'll call it a wash.

And now some D.

The DLs are well matched. NB go with Joseph (or is it Linval?) at DT who has been very solid, aside from last week's 1 tackle effort. The DEs are excellent with Demarcus Lawrence and Calais Campbell both studs, supporting (carrying?) Myles Garrett who isn't yet. NWK go with Malcolm Brown at DT and whilst he's not a 'name', his stats are excellent. There are just 2 DE's but what a pair. Brandon Graham and Joey Bosa. What a pair.



Edge: Knights

Both go with a LB trio, which is never enough. The Knights start the fantastic C.J. Mosley, who is hobbled with an ankle injury but will play, Deone Bucannon, who is hobbled with an ankle injury and might play and Darron Lee who doesn't have an ankle injury yet. But might not turn up to team meetings and get 'rested' again.

NB avoid ankle situations altogether, with Mark Barron having a great season, Eric Kendricks who was back to form last week and Brandon Marshall who has been solid enough. It's close but the injuries might swing it.

Edge: Bombers



And so to the final starters, the DBs. 4 for Ben, 5 for Joe. Ben's CBs are Trumaine and Darqueze - parents are fuckers aren't they? - who aren't altogether inspiring. Joe starts Adoree Jackson, this years #1 cornerback.

Does it get better at safety for the Bombers? Ben goes with a solid pairing in Reshad Jones - Gronk being out does him no favors this week as he had a great game (stat wise) against him 2 weeks ago - and Keanu Neal who should have a field day against the Saint's RBs.

That's good but the NWK are better with 4 starters. Kevin Byard has been a stud all year and Micah Hyde is now delivering on the great situation he's in. Budda Baker has been studly in the 4 games he's started - over 100 points in the last 4 weeks - and the quartet is completed by Adrian Amos, excellent assuming he is over his injury.

And that swings it for me. The DBs decide it.

Edge: Knights



So Joe sneaks it for me, with an 11.35 point victory over the brave Bombers.

Thanks for reading!

That wait for Boobs gif is cruel!

We'll see what happens with Fuller, might have to put Ryan Grant or Keelan Cole in. I wasn't left with too many options on offense.

Great write up as usual Mr. Dragons. Thanks!

Just goes to show the difficulty I had in trying to decide who to call out. All 3 teams are good squads. If Ertz is out, Burton will be my starter at TE, not sure if that shifts the prediction at all. Lots of Qs in there too which could change the face of the lineup.

Should be a good matchup.  Likely gonna need to put up 300 to have a chance.

Also disagree with Goff’s prospects. Philly D has given up 3x as many QB 1 (top 12) performances (6) as the Rams D (2).  Wentz could still out perform him (and the Philly Homer in me will have trouble not rooting for that) but Goff should have good numbers.

Not even sure if Steelcats will show up this week. Could be a forfeit into the Championship of TT.

"Apologies" to Jon.   cool2

A "blow me" to Ed.  wink

and a "Are you fucking kidding me?" to Craig.   confused

Listen, I don't think I need to share every event of my life, but seeing as there is so much fucking whining, here is the fuckin' deal.  I been working extra hours for about 10 months now to pay for the care givers around the house, my expenses have sky rocketed cause this piece of shit socialist country I live in only wants to roll out funds for new arrivals and every left wing pinko idea they got.  However, they toss nothing to those that actually look after their elderly (taxes paid in full for decades and worked their whole life here) parent(s).  I'm dead tired and getting grumpier and crankier every day.  I was hoping this would've slowed some, but alas it hasn't.  Perhaps come the new year I can put the screws to my sister to pull some rope.  
 
Furthermore, I have not missed a line up setting, a pick'em week, a survivor pick, or played a player listed as out even at the last minute (and I have had at least two or three of them ... I check my shit Sunday mornings unlike some).  In addition, I have received no fines what so ever this year, have managed to stay above 30 posts, and generally kept my nose clean.  Hell, I even remembered to fill out the Survey game this year.  "Woot, woot."  So all in all I think I'm doing okay, but if you disagree please feel free to post your comments.  Don't take this post as me pissing on anyone or that I'm hostile.  I'm just a straight shooter who says shit blunt and to the point.

Regards, ... cool2

Good choice, I like the Danno and McGarrett bro-mance on 5-0. They fight like a cats and dogs every week and then shoot the bad guys. Not sure why McGarrett always gets to drive even when it is Danno's car. Weird?!?!?

I guess Todd's strategy of forfeiting isn't going to happen after all.




Todd, Good luck this week.  May the team who scores the most points win.

No worries Todd and sorry to hear your situation.

I'm only messing with you anyway - absolutely no need for you to apologize. If you win through this week and there's no line up set next Wednesday, I'll do something creative.

Hope things get better.

cheers

Hey guys, all good. I usually start a lot of the same dudes every week. So while sitting here I went and already posted an early bird version of my line up for next week as win or lose I'm gonna need one regardless. Now just cause it is in early don't think I'll be napping, it will get a Thursday update at the very latest. Should have done this a few weeks ago, my bad on that one.

Thanks Joe. Good luck in your match, man. Would be nice to get a shot at avenging a couple of losses against you when it is for all the marbles and a shot at the RW Title, the most prestigious Fantasy Football Award. Woot...Woot!!!
