The bad news is I got creamed again. Bad. By The Wife.
I lost 69-112, and it would have been worse if her starting QB (Tony Romo) hadn't been injured early in the Monday night game. I had four players score in double-digits which sounds good, but then I also had four players score less than five points each. Ryan Mathews has continued to under-perform at RB and my QB Tom Brady hasn't really been stellar. I guess I'm lucky my kicker, Sebastian Janikowski of the Raiders, got to kick seven extra points in their mauling of the Broncos.
Speaking of the Raiders, I lost by 43 points. Can you guess how many points Oakland RB Darren McFadden scored for The Wife's team? 43.
Next week looks like trouble too, as my two consistently-producing starting running backs (Peyton Hillis and Ahmad Bradshaw) are on byes. That means I'm stuck with Ryan Mathews again, and have had to go to waivers to pick up the Patriots' Danny Woodhead (from Chadron State!). With Woodhead starting along with Tom Brady and Wes Welker, I'm putting all my eggs in the Patriots' basket.
