Fantasy Football 2012 Update (Week 5)

Mired in a 1-2 hole after 3 weeks, I rebounded with a much-needed win in Week 4.

I’m one of the highest scoring teams in the league, averaging about 90pts a game Topped 90pts three of four weeks, with an ugly week 2 score of “51” mixed in there.

(League average, after one of the highest fantasy-scoring weeks in recent memory, is about 80pts.)

Injuries have taken their toll. For the first three weeks, I’ve had multiple players leave games with injuries, several in the first quarter.

Players that have missed time:

Matthew Stafford

Ahmad Bradshaw

Pierre Garcon

Willis Mcgahee

Jared Cook

Even the backup QB I picked up for a bye-week start (Jake Locker) got hurt.

Week 5 was the first week in which my entire lineup played their scheduled games in full. We responded with our highest point total of the season (117).

Current Roster:

QB: Matt Stafford, Jay Cutler

WR: B. Marshall, E. Decker, D. Moore, P. Garcon, D. Hixon

RB: Jones-Drew, A. Bradshaw, W. Mcgahee,

TE: G. Olsen, J. Cook

DEF: Cincinatti, Minnesota

Notable Adds:

Greg Olsen

Jay Cutler

Notable Drops:

Christian Ponder (drafted. Dropped before Week 1)

Brandon Lafell (Added Week 3)

Russell Wilson

Titus Young

Kevin Smith

After a big win in week 4, I’m back to .500. A showdown against the first place team (4-0 record) on the horizon…
