NFL Fantasy Football: Week Seventeen Swami or Bonehead?
The penultimate edition of the start and sit picks racked up a 21-9 swami-to-bonehead ratio. Best mark in a while. Here’s a closer look.
Matt Moore: C’mon. 3 TDs. What’s not to like? Now, if he had cut down on the turnovers the ‘Fins might have pulled off an upset. 19 points. Swami!
Rex Grossman: Like Moore, turnovers took some of the bloom off the rose. But 15 points is a respectable total. Swami!
Mark Sanchez: It’s a recurring theme, so much potential, so many turnovers. 15 points. Swami!
Matt Ryan: It wasn’t much of a shootout on the Falcons side. But Ryan still chalked up 18 points. Swami!
Rashard Mendenhall: Who do you think the Steelers rode to victory in this game? Charlie Batch or Mendenhall? Hmmm? Told ya so. 20 points. Swami!
DeAngelo Williams: I told you Tampa has been giving up TDs on the ground like Christmas fruitcakes. Williams only gained 66 yards on the ground but still scored twice. 19 points. Swami!
Ryan Mathews: I was right. He is inconsistent. 6 points. Bonehead!
LeGarrette Blount: Butterfingers. One point. Bonehead!
Santana Moss: Well, his double digit game streak ended at two. 4 points. Bonehead!
Santonio Holmes: As goes Sanchez’s fortunes, so goes Holmes’. 5 points. Bonehead!
James Jones: Yeah, baby. 2 TDs. 17 points. Swami!
Steve Smith: The Panthers decided to run and not throw. Egad! 2 points. Bonehead!
Jermichael Finley: Not shabby. Could have been better if he didn’t have a couple of drops here and there. 8 points. Swami!
Brent Celek: I may be a Cowboys homer, but Celek made them into his prison girlfriend. Between how the Jets and the Cowboys have fared lately, it looks like the Ryan boys inherited the “overrated defensive mind” gene from their dad. Shouldn’t be a surprise. They are identical twins, after all. 11 points. Swami!
Jared Cook: Crazy insane. 22 points. Swami!
Joe Flacco: He must have learned something from their first meeting. He added on an extra 10 points from their first meeting. 14 points. Bonehead!
Eli Manning: He almost made me look bad. But he came up just short of my 12 point cut-off for QBs. 11 points. Swami-ish.
Charlie Batch: Parcells would have called what Batch did, “just driving the bus.” And he did it efficiently with no mistakes. But even with weapons like Wallace and Brown, it only amounted to 6 points. Swami!
Carson Palmer: Not even double digits this week. I tell you, Crennel is making a pitch for the head coaching job with the way his defense is playing now. 9 points. Swami!
Marshawn Lynch: I never would have thought he’d be the one to score the first rushing TD that the Niners would give up all year. He must really want a new contract. Do you think he just bought a boat? 18 points. Bonehead!
Steven Jackson: No TDs, but he still racked up enough yards to hit double digits. 12 points. Bonehead!
Beanie Wells: I’ll bet he can’t wait for the end of the season so he can get some rest and heal up. 5 points. Swami!
Frank Gore: I guess the Niners aren’t afraid to wear him down. No rest for the weary! 15 points. Bonehead!
Brandon Lloyd: Pittsburgh, baby. 2 points. Swami!
Hakeem Nicks: Revis Island, baby. 2 points. Swami!
Steve Johnson: More production than I expected but still under double digits. 9 points. Swami-ish.
Darrius Heyward-Bey: He did a little better against the Chiefs than Nelson and Jones last week, but not enough to break double digits. 7 points. Swami-ish.
Heath Miller: Like I said, it’s Batch, not Big Ben playing. One point. Swami!
Greg Olsen: Yep. Zero points. Swami!
Visanthe Shiancoe: He helped block Orakpo. Kyle Rudolph got what few passes went the TE’s way. Zero points. Swami!
