This is the Chasing History version of the weekly recap as we shattered the one week scoring mark in LFFL history. We had 3 players with 50 burgers, two from the same matchup!
Dust Devils def. Donnie Barqs, 191.2-106.9
I’m gonna go out on a limb and say its rare to score 191.2 pts in a game and NOT win the skin? A win is a win, and an 84.3 pt victory for the Dust Devils gets them into a tie for best record in the league at 4-1.
Key Observation: I should probably know who K Gainwell is, but with a paltry 3.4 pts this week, I shall not investigate his presence any further.
The Monsoon def. Straight Cash Homie, 146.8-132.1
Another week, another MNF miracle. Not to be outdone by J Herbert’s 54.4 pts, L Jackson goes legend again with 54.2 pts of his own as the Monsoon complete the massive comeback and improve to 4-1.
Key Observation: I can say this for SCH; they started the correct D this week with DEN at 2.0 pts. Their other two rostered DEF each had -6 pts.
Cabana Kid def. Gid’s Kids, 134.7-90.3
The self proclaimed best worst team in fantasy history, Cabana Kid, scores the impressive[?] win over Gid’s Kids. Let’s not sugar coat it; someone was gonna win this battle of winless teams.
Key Observation: Russ won’t be cooking anything for a while, another roster shuffle coming for the Cabana Kid.
TRiM MyT D’s def. 4th and 20, 155.5-133.1
K Murray was not very K Murray this week, but no worries for TRiM as D Henry and A Mattison pick up the slack and TRiM hang on to beat 4th and 20 in the race for the league’s best record [and Most Improved].
Key Observation: Recently acquired S Barkley gets hurt [again], and with bye weeks starting, how will 4th and 20 construct their roster this week?
Big Hitter def. H.Y.C., 144.2-135.8
Our closest matchup of the week goes to Big Hitter; could if be that K Pitts remembers he was the 4th pick in the NFL draft? I must have missed that J Gordon waiver wire pickup, a lottery ticket for sure.
Key Observation: Oft-injured D Cook is a huge hole to fill for H.Y.C., E Mitchell didn’t quite step up.
GMNY United def. Klaver Football Club, 238.4-144.0
I don’t like to self-promote, so I will quietly tell you that GMNY United shattered the single game scoring record by almost 20 pts [previously held by Dust Devils, 218.9 pts], got 51.8 pts out of old man T Brady, and is rolling down the tracks on this week’s Bullet Train.
Key Observation: TB is on bye in WK09; congrats on your win in advance, Big Hitter.
CRAPPIE REPORT: Gid’s Kids
The only team not to score at least 106.9 pts this week; no point in having any BAL RB’s as it’s the L Jackson show.
Key Observation: J Fields to the rescue? JK…or am I?
TRiM MyT D’s v. Dust Devils
Back to back Game of the Week’s for TRiM who enter another MEGA clash with the Dust Devils, both teams at 4-1.
