Weekend Recap


This weekend we saw a lot of action in sport’s and I will try to get an overview on what happened this Columbus Day weekend.

Fantasy NFL

Standouts-

Victor Cruz- If it wasn’t for the miraculous one-handed tipped ball he caught for a long touchdown he wouldn’t have had such eye-popping numbers, but because of the catch he had a great fantasy day for owners who were brave enough to start him.

Benjarvus Green-Ellis- Who saw this day coming? Not many people would’ve predicted that Green-Ellis would rush for 136 yards and 2 TD’s especially when most thought Stevan Ridley would steal some looks from him.

Ben Roethlisberger- Seemingly playing on a bad right ankle, Ben still was able to throw for 5 TD’s against a good Titans defense, we knew Ben was great, but this performance was on another level.

Jimmy Graham-  This man is a match-up nightmare for defenses with his size and athleticism, reminds me of a lankier Tony Gonzalez.  He is probably the best tight end in the game right now, and many people don’t even know about him.

Duds-

Philip Rivers- Rivers continues to let down fantasy owners who most likely spent a high draft pick on him expecting high yardage games, and lots of TD’s.  Rivers has been nothing but mediocre, and he should have had better numbers than 250 pass yards, and a touchdown against the Broncos.

Josh Freeman- Probably the worst performance of his career, throwing for only 187 yards and 2 interceptions.  In my league he only put up a whopping 3 points, which is an awful day for many who thought he was going to be a top 10 QB by the end of the year.

Isaac Redman- Many thought he was slated to have a huge game with Rashard Mendenhall out against the Titans, but it was Jonathan Dwyer who took the spotlight from Redman who rushed for 107 yards, to Redman’s 49 yards.

Darren McFadden- Only 51 rushing yards against the Texans defense is a shocker to most McFadden owners, he looked like he could run all over any defense he goes against.

Larry Fitzgerald- In a ppr league Fitz had a 10 point game, which is alright but most would think he would be able to put up more against a Vikings defense, especially when they were getting blown out most of the game.

Dallas Clark- Clark was featured in my Sit Em this week, and proved me right.  He had only 1 catch for 7 yards, showing how much of a difference Peyton Manning makes on his favorite Tight End.

MLB

– My worst nightmare just keeps getting worse and worse every time I see the Brewers and Cards play.  Last night was no exception when I saw the Brewers just pile on the Home runs against the Cardinals and Jaime Garcia.  I would love the Brewers to get out of the Playoffs already so that the Cubs can focus on getting Prince Fielder for next year.  For now I’m going to have to live through another Wisconsin team going deep into the playoffs. Oh joy…

– The Rangers took game 1 against the Tigers in a boring rain delayed game, that most probably didn’t bother watching on Saturday night.  C.J. Wilson came back after the long rain delay then started getting rocked by the Tigers, then another rain delay ensued and Alexi Ogando came in a shut the door on the Tigers,  Going up 1-0, with Game 2 tonight in Arlington.

Blackhawks

– The Blackhawks split the season opening home and home against the Dallas stars Friday and Saturday night.  They lost Friday 2-1, Nick Leddy scored the only Hawks goal with only 13 seconds left in the 3rd period, they had there scoring chances on Friday but they couldn’t seem to find the back of the net.  Saturday with the return of Dave Bolland, the Hawks were played some inspired hockey in front of the United Center crowd.  Bolland (2), Toews, Brunette, and Sharp all scored in the 5-2 win against the Stars backup goalie Andrew Raycroft.  Their next scheduled game is Thursday against the Winnipeg Jets formally known as the Atlanta Thrashers.
