Fantasy Football Week 4 Wrap Up

FINALLY!!!! We got a W. As my fellow basement dweller, They May Be Giants, said ' we got the monkeys off our backs!!!'. My team showed up and for once I was able to pick the right lineup. The bad news is that Ray Lewis almost killed my backup running back, Rashard Mendenhall, so it's going to be tough going this week since I don't really have any other backs available because of a BYE for the Jets (Thomas Jones). But hey, we got all week to deal with that. Let's get on to the recap of week 4 games.

Cold Ones (0-3) vs Techno Raiders (2-1)

J.T. O'Sullivan (QB - SF) ----- Donovan McNabb (QB - Phi)
Terrell Owens (WR - Dal) -----Chad Johnson (WR - Cin)
Santana Moss (WR - Was) ----- Hines Ward (WR - Pit)
Lee Evans (WR - Buf) ----- Hank Baskett (WR -Phi)
Marshawn Lynch (RB - Buf) ------ Clinton Portis (RB - Was)
Thomas Jones (RB - NYJ) ------ Ryan Grant (RB - GB)
Dustin Keller (TE - Phi) ----- Dante Rosario (TE - Car)
Jeff Reed (K - Pit) ----- Robbie Gould (K - Chi)
Tampa Bay (DEF) ----- Jacksonville (DEF)

The Cold Ones had a balanced attack this week but the Tampa Bay defense led the way with 18 points. Lee Evans chipped in with 16.80 points while TO and Santana Moss helped lead with 14.20 and 14.50 points respectively. Clinton Portis led the Techno Raiders with 13.50 points but other than Portis, Donovan McNabb was the only other player to contribute with more than 10 points (11.98). This allowed the Cold Ones to dominate and win in a blowout 107.18 to 48.38.

They May Be Giants (0-3) vs RDU Saints (3-0)
They May Be Giants got off to a nice lead this week, led by Brett Favre's favorite target, Laveranues Coles and his 28.50 points. Jamal Lewis chipped in with 15.40 points and Philadelphia chipped in with 12 points. The RDU Saints had a somewhat balanced attack with Tennessee's defense contributing 13 points, Rob Bironas with 11 points, Frank Gore with 13.30 points, and Antwaan Randle-El chipping in with 10.10. They May Be Giants won in a nail biter, 79.76 to 78.90.

The Quite Franklies (2-1) vs Air Raiders (1-2)
The Quite Franklies depended on Jerricho Cottery (18.70) and Jay Cutler(15.04) for most of their points this week. As you can probably guess that wasn't enough as Adrian Peterson (20.10) and Steve Smith (15.60) basically covered those points for the Air Raiders. Brandon Marshall (10.60) and Tony Gonzalez (10.70) provided more firepower for the Air Raiders and helped them win 82.92 to 69.14.

Big Game Hunter (3-0) vs Silver & Black Rules (2-1)
Big Game Hunter got major contributions from Matt Schaub (26.68) and Steven Jackson (24.80) to take the lead. Silver & Black Rules bounced back with Tony Romo (22.70), Chris Johnson (19.50) and the Buffalo defense (13). However, Big Game Hunter outlasted the S&B Rules 94.48 to 85.40, to go 4-0 in the league.

Potomac PimpSlappers (1-2) vs Charlotte PrimeTime! (1-2)
The Potomac PimpSlappers were led by the career day that Brett Favre had with 33.56 points, and they also got 15 points apiece from Jason Witten and Correll Buckhalter. Charlotte PrimeTime didn't have Favre, but did have a very well balanced attack led by none other than LT with 23.50 points. Other contributions from JaMarcus Russell (11.48), Larry Fitzgerald (12.20) , Anquan Boldin (15.90), DeSean Jackson (14.60) and Antonio Gates (11.80). Charlotte PrimeTime! wins 106.98 to 96.36.

Tha Bruthaz (1-2) vs RobbBobbyBilly (2-1)
Tha Bruthaz strgulled with Muhsin Muhammad (20.70) and Jake Delhomme (19.76) leading the way. RobbBobbyBilly got great production from Drew Brees (24.42), Greg Jennings (22.90), and Earnest Graham (17.40) to pick up the win in a relatively easy game for them. RobbBobbyBilly wins 116.32 to 88.76.

So the week ended with two teams finally getting a win (the Cold Ones and They Might Be Giants) and one team going 4-0 (Big Game Hunter). I'm presently in 9th place out of 12, but this is the first quarter of the league. Here's to next week and another win. The matchups are as follows:

Cold Ones (1-3) vs RobbBobbyBilly (3-1)
The Quite Franklies (2-2) vs Big Game Hunter (4-0)
Potomac PimpSlappers (1-3) vs Air Raiders (2-2)
They Might Be Giants (1-3) vs Charlotte PrimeTime! (2-2)
Tha Bruthaz (1-3) vs Silver & Black Rules (2-2)
Techno Raiders (2-2) vs RDU Saints (3-1)
