What Was I THINKING? (WWIT - DFFL) Week Six
Week 6 – THAT’s the DFFL that I remember
wondering out loud last week to anyone that would listen (which turned out to
be my dog, Honey, who looked bored, but hey, sue me), when we said that this
2018 DFFL season didn’t feel like almost ALL of the other seasons – Very close
games, wild finishes, last-second heroics – It seemed like 2018 was going to be
a different animal….
And then came
Now, THIS is
the DFFL that I remember!Exhibit A –
Full Tilt Poker needing just 3 points from Aaron Jones to lock out Anthony
Pitassi’s 4-and-1 Mr. Go Lucky franchise, with flashbacks of Burbank’s 1-point
loss in Week Four looming larger by the minute, then finally getting that third
point, but not until the third quarter, in a 113-111 thriller.
Exhibit B – The
Baltimore Ravens / Mob Squad game, that had a similar feel – The Dirty Birds,
down two points with just the erratic Jimmy Graham to go with, got THAT deed
done quickly, courtesy of Graham’s 54-yard catch from Aaron Rodgers during the
Packers’ first drive, leading Baltimore to a 140-132 win.
And then, last,
but not least, that wild Your Name Here / Trojans slugfest, a game that seemed
like a sure Trojan victory going into the last night of play. Ryan Francis was
down 20 points on Monday night with just Green Bay’s Davante Adams left to
score, then got those 20 points and MORE, with a last-minute TD pass late in
the 4th quarter from Aaron Rodgers to the inimitable Davante Adams,
giving YNH / LGJ a thrilling, come-from-behind 133-128 win over Any Gillette’s
more like it!It’s good to see that the
DFFL “flair for the dramatic” has returned for the second half of our
Dunn-Edwards Fantasy Football League.And, you KNOW that there are more games like these in store….
But… We all
know that the members of the DFFL didn’t come here to talk about big wins in
the regular season.Oh, no… THEY come
here for the OTHER side of the DFFL coin.They want to know who goofed up their lineups so bad, that their PC was
sitting outside in the trash last night.It’s time to find out the answer to that now-12-year-old question….
“What Was I
We begin with
the Genius Division, the heralded sons of all that is right and true in the
Dunn-Ed League.You know, if you watch
how the standings in this division fluctuate, you’ll see which franchise owners
are doing the best job at putting their individual teams in the best position
to get that valued win, each and every week.
gold-medal performance goes to a man that has scored highly in each of the last
four weeks, now – Anthony Pitassi of Mr. Go Lucky. Anthony posted a perfect
game for Week Six, and deserved a better fate than his two-point loss to Full
tilt Poker.Anthony’s still at 4-2, and
a player in this league.We’ll slide
Anthony 7 Genius points for the perfecto, plus one bonus point ll those
medal for Week Six goes to The Commish, Jim Francis of the bolts, who only lost
3 points to his bench, good for 5 Genius points.Bronze medal goes to Alan Sullivan of the
Grim Reaper for just a 5-point loss to his bench, good for three Genius
points.We’ll give one Bonus point each
to FTP, the Ravens, and the Killing Fields for also having a single-digit bench
OK, here’s how
they stand after Week Six of the 2018 DFFL Genius Division….
DIVISION – WEEK 6 STANDINGS – DFFL 2018
1.Your Name Here (28 points) – Two straight
weeks of scoreless efforts, but still on top
2.Mr. Go Lucky (24.5 points) – Make that FOUR
great weeks in a row for Anthony
3.Run & Gun (20 points) – Just one game v.
the Norsemen can throw you out of whack!
4.Burbank Thumpers (14 points) – Hanging on to
fourth place, still a contender
5.Trojans (11 points) – Another tough Monday
Night loss for Andy Gillette’s Trojans
6.Bolts (10 points) – Trubisky and Parkey the
only holdouts to stop a perfecto
7.The Killing Fields (9 points) – Single-digit
bench loss scores another point for Roberto
8.Baltimore Ravens (8 points) – Thank goodness
for Jimmy Graham!
9.Full Tilt Poker (6 points) – “I’m falling,
and I can’t get up!”
Grim Reaper (6 points) – Great bench
work that didn’t translate into a winning formula
Mob Squad (3 points) – Remember, Jesus – It’s a marathon, not a sprint.
to score –Norsemen (What’s the deal, Rob?)
With the Genius
Division in the rear-view mirror, we hesitate to turn our attention to the
windshield on our Week-Six trip… But, we must.It’ what we come here for.So, no
more filler, let’s have that tough slab of fantasy football steak … It’s time
to ask for the dessert… Time for…
What Was I
OK, fasten your
seat belts, here we go -- Ya gotta love Rob Mielke and the Norsemen.He’s in a battle that, around here, we call
the latest “family squabble” between Rob and his in-law, Ron Bolton of Run
& Gun.And, like most family
members, Rob is kind to his relatives… So kind, mind you, that he left a
whopping 24 points on his bench in the R.G. / Norse “battle.Congrats, Rob!That’ll get you 7 WWIT points.No bonus points, because it looks like you
tried to throw the game, to make Ron happy.(Laugh)
Rob, RON was in a similar “giving mood,” and decided to throw the game between
them back to Rob, by losing 23 points to HIS bench.Now, this had to hurt Ron, because he RARELY
appears in WWIT.Surprise!Family DOES matter, Ron, so here’s 5 WWIT
points for your ledger.(I guarantee you
that these two will most likely post perfectos when Full Tilt plays them.)
Oh, yeah, we
still have vitriol to throw around.We
had a tie for the “tarnished silver” in WWIT.Your Name Here made it’s first appearance in here, when Ryan lost 23
points to HIS bench (and still won.No
justice.)-5 WWIT points for you, my
friend.Welcome to the party.The WWIT bronze goes to Jose Cano of the
Thumpers (another guy that rarely appears in WWIT).He lost 13 points to his bench, good for 3
WWIT points. Any more WWIT bonus points?
look.Oh, yeah, got some.-2 more WWIT points to Andrew Gillette, for
not playing Eric Ebron.If you ain’t
gonna use him, Andy, give him to me, or Grant, or Jim.Let’s give Burbank a -1 WWIT point for
goofing up the kicker thing.(Didn’t
all, folks. Week 6 is history.… Here are
the full results for WWIT #6…
