MMAmania FFB Week 6 Recap and Week 7 Preview

A little late this week cuz I've been busy with work stuff this week. Sorry guys, I'll work on getting my priorities straight next week.

Here is a quick recap of last week's matchups

Kevin - 203.37

ViolentMike - 171.53

Scoring over 170 points typically means you are going to get a W, but not when you play Kev. Aaron Rodgers put up 49 fucking points, Wes Welker put up 30, and Shonn motherfucking Greene scored 34. The performances of these 3 players totally eclipsed another stellar performance by the best WR in the league, AJ Green, who put up 32.5 for my squad. Kev, I owe you $25. Good game.


Joben - 133.27

GriffinFan - 106.23

No big performers in this matchup, but there were some shitty ones. For GriffinFan, Rivers put up a measly 4 points, Mendenhall chipped in 2.7 and Amendola didn't even play. For Joben, he was able to escape with a win despite a goose egg from Hartline. In other word, your two white WR's combined for zero points. But they gave a lot of effort and were scrappy, right?


donkeypunch - 111.80

deuce - 89

I thiiiiink Deuce set his lineup this week. But its hard to tell, because he started Greg Jennings, WHO DID NOT PLAY. I still find it hard to believe that yahoo's post draft analysis saw Deuce as having the best draft. As for donkey, his luck and ease of schedule have allowed him to slip into first place, despite having one of the lower scoring teams on the season.


Buster Bluth - 143.87

Puck Head - 104.53

Buster's team was lead by RG3 and Dez Bryant who each scored 34 points. And Puck? Well, he started Mark


DetroitDrew - 114.07

Shivan Tiger - 94.10

Not a single player in this matchup scored 21 points or more. It was a completely uninspiring performance by two uninspiring individuals.


Ulf Murphy - 150.80

BJPennFan - 133.40

Another solid game by Peyton (25) and a monster game by Jordy Nelson (39.10) and the Ulf Man gets himself his second win of the season! I honestly didn't expect that to happen until around week 10 or so. As for the Beej, his team pretty much played up to its projection, but Ulf's team shined.


And now, a look at the standings:

11. Puck Head 2-4-0 .333 1-3-0 689.80 766.16 L-2 10 7

So what did we expect this season and what looks to be shockers? Let's take a look.


- I am surprised to see donkey as the number one team right now. But like I stated previously, this is due to luck when it comes to his schedule. In fact, only a couple of teams have scored less points than donkey on the season, meanwhile, his points against is just about 100 points lower than everyone else.

- GriffinFan is only in 6th place. With his roster and his bloodline, I would expect better.

Expected to see

- My team at or near the top of the standings

- I expected Deuce's team to be no where as good as yahoo was predicting, but even I couldn't have predicted his team would be this bad.

- I expected Drew to have a poor season after his poor draft.

- Ulf battling it out for last place? Yup, nothing new here.

And now, a peak at this week's matchups which are already underway! Projections are in parenthesis.

ViolentMike (130.57) vs donkeypunch (118.09)

Looks like donkey's record is about to normalize/regress here. But he is off to a good start with Gore putting up 23.20 against a tough Seatle defense.

GriffinFan (129.99) vs Puck Head (123.99)

Close matchup here. Is GriffinFan going to start proving he is one of the top teams, or is Puck going to make a case for why he doesn't have one of the worst teams.

Deuce (112.78) vs Shivan (115.29)

Deuce, you still have Jennings in your lineup, he's not playing again... And Shiv, there is very few things that I can think of that are more embarrassing that losing to Deuce in FFB...

Buster Bluth (126.12) vs Ulf Murphy (103.73)

103.73????? SMH

DetroitDrew (103.39) vs Kevin (132.73)

Kev's team is flexing and Drew's team is wilting

Joben (108.22) vs BJPennFan (128.82)

Another easy win for BJ? It looks like it.

That'a a wrap for this week, I'll be back again next Tuesday or Wednesday but probably Thursday, and if not , Friday with another recap/preview.
