Wane McGarity Stud Of The Week
Josh Gordon (Passion De La Puente)
14 receptions, 237 receiving yards, 1 receiving TD, 36 points
This was a high scoring affair and since Mike only beat Mayra by 8 points, he needed every one of Josh Gordon's 36 points. It was a big time performance in a big time situation.
Michael Wiley Duds Of The Week
Alfred Morris/Frank Gore (Channel 4 News Team)
83 combined rushing yards, 1 combined reception, 3 combined receiving yards, 8.5 points combined
This is why projections are just that. Down 10 points against Ryan going into Monday Night, Albert shouldn't even have had to pay attention to this game with both his stud running backs still playing. All he needed was a measly 5 points per running back in a PPR no less. And THIS is why Fantasy Football can be so cruel. Alfred Morris is a tad understandable, the 49ers run defense IS good, but for Frank Gore to not be able to get the 10 points ON HIS OWN against a bad Redskins D? Wow....insane. One of the worst performances from an elite running back combo this season. It might even end up costing Albert a playoff berth.They both deserve this award.
Drew Bennett Sneaky Surprise Award
Nate Burelson (Not Even Lying)
7 receptions, 77 receiving yards, 1 receiving TD
Obviously Nate won't be getting a Week 13 award with a 0 catch performance on Thanksgiving, but last week with Percy Harvin on bye, Kenny needed a bye week fill in and took a shot on Burleson who was coming back from an injury of his own. It paid off big time. 16.5 points from his WR#4, you'll take that all day.
Tony Romo Bad Decision Award
Me playing Chris Ogbonnaya over Montee Ball and Mark Ingram
I knew the LeSean McCoy bye would end up being a big deal and it was. With no real backup to use, I had to play Crappy RB Roulette. Initially, Montee Ball was my choice. I had seen the Broncos were using him more especially in goal line situations and he snaked a couple TD's against the Chiefs from Knowshon Moreno. Then, it was announced Darren Sproles would be inactive, so I picked up Mark Ingram with the intention of using HIM in a game against the awful Atlanta Defense. Once again, i chickened out and went with the guy I thought would get more guaranteed touches. I had a 1 in 3 shot and natrually I picked the wrong guy. Ogbonnaya was AWFUL. He fumbled and basically never saw another snap after that. He finished with a pathetic 2 points. Though Ingram, and Ball weren't any better, they both finished with 3 and 4.5 respectively. Hell, even Lamar Miller, who I had no inclination of using because of his matchup with the Panthers had 5! I lost by half a point. If I play any of those guys, I win. Instead of cruising with a guaranteed bye, I'm now fighting for it in Week 13. Horrible decision making by me.
