Fantasy Football 2019 – Week 12

Is it just me or did the Eagles get booed more in Philly than they would have in Seattle? Philly fans are rough. The Seahawks defense caused a lot of those bad plays that earned boos from the crowd. It was fun to see the turnovers being generated on a day when the offense wasn’t fully clicking. Well, it wasn’t clicking except for a great game from Penny. I keep hearing that Carson is the future and it’s ok to fumble a lot because he’s so good but … really? He has 6 fumbles this year. That’s enough for 12th worst in the NFL and he’s the only running back in the top 24 (all others are QBs).

After the dust settled in our league, Tim had beaten Luke to keep the Scherschel brothers in a tie with Tim edging Luke out slightly in total points. Logan lost to my dad to stay in that three way tie for 2nd. Tyler is on top after beating Andy. Looking at the records, point totals, and schedule, I think Tyler, Tim and Luke are pretty much a lock for the playoffs. Logan has the best odds of taking that 4th spot, but if Andy beats him this week then that gets a little more interesting. Only two weeks left in our regular season. Tim is going to be hard to stop with Lamar Jackson leading the way.

The power rankings have me up in 2nd despite my almost complete lack of a chance to make the playoffs and look who popped up into 4th! Our league standings are really odd this year when you look at points for/against.

1. Tim (Beer-me) +1
2. Ben (Kool Aid Kid) +1
3. Luke (Helmetheads) -2
4. Nick (Insert Creative Name) +1
