NFL Fantasy Football: Week Sixteen Swami or Bonehead?
The Swami-to-Bonehead ratio was pretty favorable, 17-13, but it could have been better. There were a number of very unexpected turns. But that’s what happens when teams and players decided to play the spoiler at the end of the season and ratchet their game up a level purely out of loser’s spite. Here’s the damage.
Tim Tebow: Yeah, in real football he lost. In fantasy football, he won big. 26 points. Swami!
Andy Dalton: I swear the Rams are playing like Steve Spagnuolo owes them money and he won’t pay up if he gets fired. 5 points. Bonehead!
Matt Stafford: This week he pulls out a 4th quarter comeback instead of Tebow. 29 points. Swami!
Rex Grossman: How did he not rip a weak Giants secondary? How? 7 points. Bonehead!
Cedric Benson: Not great yardage totals but he scored. 14 points. Swami!
Michael Bush: If he had been able to score, the Raiders might have won. Not great rushing totals but he padded his points with receiving yards. 13 points. Swami!
Reggie Bush: Wow. I never would have guessed last year that the l’il fella would ever be durable enough to rack up 200 rushing yards in the NFL. 24 points. Swami!
Chris Johnson: Oh, well. He hit double digits. Barely. 10 points. Swami-ish.
Antonio Brown: Nah, all the Steelers got pwned all the way around.5 points. Bonehead!
Jordy Nelson: WTF? That’s all I can say. WTF!?!? 2 points. Bonehead!
Santana Moss: Was hoping for more, but hey, Rex was Rex. Moss still hit double digits. 10 points. Swami!
Demaryius Thomas: Was hoping for more, but double digits works. 11 points. Swami!
Jake Ballard: Ah, Eli regressing a little bit. One point. Bonehead!
Jermichael Finley: At least one Packer pass catcher did okay. 8 points. Swami!
Owen Daniels: Maybe I was wrong about that Yates kid. AUGH! 2 points. Bonehead!
Carson Palmer: I still don’t know who he really has to throw it to. 18 points. Bonehead!
Philip Rivers: Well, it wasn’t a knock ‘em dead performance but it’s still about twice as many points as I thought he’d put up. 14 points. Bonehead!
Alex Smith: Despite the power blackouts and the Steelers, he only dropped off in production slightly. Go figure. 12 points. Bonehead-ish.
Ben Roethlisberger: On the other hand, Ben didn’t look right. Would it have killed Tomlin to have rested the big guy and start Dixon?. 5 points. Swami!
Frank Gore: I totally expected the Steelers to shut him down. 12 points. Bonehead!
Rashard Mendenhall: I totally expected the Niners to shut him down. 8 points. Swami!
C.J. Spiller: This kid is completely frustrating. He tanks it one week and shows up like a beast the next. 28 points. Bonehead!
Ryan Mathews: Now, the question is: Are the Chargers that good, or did Baltimore fall back into their familiar pattern of losing to lousy teams after they smack around a good one. Hard to say which principle was in operation here. 22 points. Bonehead!
Steve Johnson: More points than I thought but still below the magic 10 point mark for me. 8 points. Swami!
Michael Crabtree: Yep, called it. 3 points. Swami!
DeSean Jackson: Did i nail this one or what? 2 points. Swami!
Anquan Boldin: Actually, a couple more points than I expected. 5 points. Swami!
Jermaine Gresham: The Rams really do play the TE well. One point. Swami!
Vernon Davis: Wow, I did not see that coming. 13 points. Bonehead!
Dennis Pitta: Todd Heap isn’t missing Baltimore. 2 points. Swami!
