No venting. Let’s talk fantasy football.
1. Sigh. I benched Russell Wilson because, well, I didn’t expect the man to surgerize the pretty-respected Cardinals defense. Their defensive line forced two Wilson fumbles, but Patrick Peterson and Tyrann Mathieu constantly got beat by Sidney Rice and Golden Tate.
Nick Foles left the game with a head injury, and Dallas’ D pounded the not-so-revolutionary-anymore Chip Kelly offense into powder on Sunday afternoon.
2. Rueben Randle showed up to work today per usual. What I hate about Eli Manning and his offense is this: any one of his talented receivers may find themselves statistically having a field day, on pace for setting another career-high. When Hakeem Nicks isn’t open, Victor Cruz is. When Cruz isn’t, then Randle is behind the secondary.
3. Joseph Randle (Cowboys) put up 13 points yesterday against the Eagles, and I’m somewhat regretting my decision of placing him on the bench. . . Adrian Peterson is a must-start, touche with Eddie Lacy . . .
WHAT NEEDS TO HAPPEN ON MNF:
A) Adrian Peterson runs for 3 touchdowns, 100 yards = 20 points
B) Blair Walsh = 5 extra points
C) Giants DBs shut down Greg Jennings = 2 points
D) Rueben Randle 5 catches, 80 yards, 1 TD = 12.5 points
Fantasy Football’s Comeback of the Century starts on Monday night.
WHAT HAPPENED ON MNF:
A) Josh Freeman couldn’t engineer a drive because of obvious reasons and Adrian Peterson was shut down facing a defense who stacked eight in the box for most of the night.
B) Blair Walsh missed a field goal from afar, and the Vikings reached the endzone once – thanks to Marcus Sherels’ punt return
C) Greg Jennings was shut down
D) Rueben Randle = 3 – 40 – 1 : 9.25 points
