This is who's going to keep Drew as a viable contender for the Wane McGarity Bowl. Tom Brady has been pretty much as perfect as one can be this season as he's lead his Pats to a 7-0 record. "Angry Brady" as decimated every opponent he's faced and for Drew it's the perfect situation to be in. Barring injury, there will be no let down, Brady and the Pats are on a mission, and how they're playing, nobody's gonna get in their way. If they do indeed challenge for that perfect season, Drew won't have to worry about Brady resting. A highly motivated and highly competitive Tom Brady shouldn't just be scary in the real NFL, but it should be scary for all the rest of us as well having to play Drew. Last night, Brady once again performed at an MVP level as he carved up the Dolphins for 350 passing yards and 4 scores. Lucky for Drew, minimal of it went to Danny Amendola, who Leland played against him. Gronk was a big time recipient of those yards though as he once again dominated with 113 yards and a score. Unfortunately for Albert, we've seen Gronk carry the scoring load before only for the rest of his to let down, so this performance doesn't guarantee anything, but it's a good start nonetheless. Mayra should be happy still got her 10 points as bad as the Dolphins played last night. Mark should be happy as well, because if not for a cheap 2 yard TD, Lamar Miller would've been a huge bust. Instead he put up near his projection with nearly 12 points. Brady wasn't the only guy Drew had going last night, as he used Rishard Matthews as well, who put up a decent 62 yards on 7 catches. Again, considering the way Miami played, it wasn't a bad performance. LeGarrette Blount didn't do much, 71 rushing yards, but he's my flex so I'm not too worried about it. For Kenny, couldn't ask for a worse start as not only did Jordan Cameron not do anything really (2 receptions for 34 yards), but Julian Edelman had two TD's and nearly 24 points to get Matt off to a great start. Again, the rest of Matt's team has to show up, but with both teams struggling, having the upper hand is vital for Matt's chances. Onto the Week 7 Awards
Wane McGarity Stud Of The Week
Lamar Miller (Shock The Monkey)
Regardless of this week's performance, last week was all about Lamar Miller. What he did in ONE HALF was just amazingly absurd. 37 fantasy points in one half....just wow. He still scored this week and there's no doubt he'll be a big part of Mark's team for here on out.
Michael Wiley Dud Of The Week
Jimmy Graham (Winter Is Over)
One of the main reasons (along with Eddie Lacy) that Alex's team has been so disappointing. It's obvious he doesn't fit in Seattle's conservative offense. He alternates between good and horrible games. This week, was once again horrible. Another week of less than 5 points. The crappy thing, it's hard to bench him because of his "upside". It's just a big trap that's hard to get out of.
Drew Bennett Sneaky Surprise Award
Michael Floyd (Kumamon Express)
No other way to put, I play Jordan Matthews (who all experts had ranked higher) I lose by like 3 points. Instead, I go with my gut (Ravens D sucks, Floyd's coming around, #3 option in a high scoring offense) and Michael Floyd comes through big with a TD. I don't win without him. Another example of a managerial decision paying off.
Jay Cutler Bad Decision Award
Albert Plays an inactive Antonio Gates
No brainer here. 2nd straight week Albert plays an inactive player. Two weeks ago, he probably still would've lost as I doubt anyone on the waivers could've gotten him the points he needed to beat Drew. This past week though? He gave away a win. He only lost by less than a half a point. Anyone he plugs in gets him a win and saves his season. It's also not like Gates was a last second injury, there were reports all week he might not play. A bad move that might be looked back as the final nail in Albert's coffin if his team can't get it together.
