Fantasy Football Post #5: Week 4 + Thursday Night Football

Well I lost.

I lost 97-79 in part because my team couldn’t perform and because my opponent could.  I definitely didn’t count on this guy having a big game.

 

Drew Brees killed me with his 31 fantasy points.

It also didn’t help that Mike Wallace only got me two and that Vincent Jackson only got me three.  Meanwhile on my bench both Kenbrell Thompkins and Sidney Rice had double digit point values.  I have a good squad, it’s just I need to know how to use it. 

Redemption couldn’t come soon enough.  I play Kyle this week.  I’m favored to win 112-111.  Projections don’t mean anything though.

I’m going to keep my lineup the same though as Week 3.  Except I will put Kenbrell Thompkins in as my Flex instead of Mike Wallace. 

Here’s my starting lineup.  I also decided to change my name to “The Jacksonville Tebows”.

TheJacksonville Tebows   STATS
PLAYER, TEAM POS OPP   PRK AVG PR0J
Andrew Luck, Ind QB   10 18.3 18
Adrian Peterson, Min RB   3 16.7 17
Frank Gore, SF RB  P   23 8.0 13
Calvin Johnson, Det WR  Q   5 14.3 15
Vincent Jackson, TB WR  Q   27 8.3 7
Jason Witten, Dal TE   7 8.7 13
Kenbrell Thompkins, NE WR   32 8.0 11
Broncos D/ST D/ST   13 8.7 4
Blair Walsh, Min K   5 10.0 14
112

Projected Total:

Hopefully I do well.  Anways here’s tomorrow night’s football preview.

Virginia Tech at Georgia Tech

 

Virginia Tech

(3-1, 1-0 away)

Georgia Tech

(3-0, 2-0 ACC)

Well once again I’m trying to get back to .500 on college football.  There’s a lot of easy contests to predict so I should be able to this week.  If it wasn’t for a tough loss to Alabama in Week 1, Virginia Tech might still be undefeated.  After three straight wins Logan Thomas and his Hokies go to Atlanta to face Georgia Tech.  They’re a pleasant surprise as they’ve started out 3-0 and are expected to make some damage to Florida State’s and Clemson’s national title hopes come conference play.  It could go either way, but I trust the playmakers on the Hokies more, especially considering how they’ve already played some strong competition.

My Pick:  Virginia Tech

My Record:  7-11

Now here’s the NFL competition.

49ers at Rams

(1-2-0)

49ers

(1-2-0)

Rams

While it’s easy to predict a Niner victory, don’t be surprised if the Rams turn the tables on this team.  While the Niners have a stronger squad, St.Louis did not lose to the defending NFC Champions last year.  Expect for it to be a close game, but Harbaugh will be especially motivated in this one. 

My Pick:  Niners

My Record:  27-21

Stay classy everyone!

HOHOHO!
