It’s always a nice surprise when you’re team upsets the favorite. Particularly when the favorites are the World Champs. My beloved Cleveland Browns turned the trick on the N’Owlens Saints Sunday, with our third string quarterback behind center and our receiving corps depleted. It was all defense and Peyton Hillis. So we’re 2-5 going into our bye week. Not playoff bound, but in better shape than Dallas.
Speaking of Dallas (and getting back to fantasy), I’ve lost Tony Romo from a couple of my fantasy teams. Time to hit the waiver wire. Worse (fantasy-wise): Reports Saturday night indicated that Titans receiver Kenny Britt would not be starting due to personal issues. Of course, I sat him in both leagues. Of course, he didn’t start, but did play, and scored three touchdowns. Damn.
This week’s results:
