Fantasy Gods, Why Hast Thou Forsaken Me? Week 1 2017


Trying a new feature this year folks, as many of you know, I like to complain. The weather, sports, politics, nothing ever seems to be good enough for Brocky. Naturally this extends to fantasy football, the thing that is supposed to distract me from those things. Such misfortune can’t possibly be the result of my own ineptitude, therefore it can only happen due to divine intervention. That’s right, I’m blaming my fantasy woes on god, and I’ll be posting every Tuesday how the big man upstairs did me wrong. I made some comments about this last year, now its morphed into a full feature


The Scene: Heaven

The Scene: Heaven
This is totally what heaven looks like

God: Jesus my son, would you please come over here, I feel your wisdom is necessary.


Jesus: Thank goodness, we can finally get started on all these hurricanes happening on earth and…


God: What? Hurricanes, no my child, those are fine the way they are. I have to do something about Florida you see…. never mind, this week is very important, and it shall require my divine attention…


Jesus: Well, what could be more important on earth than those hurricanes? The ever present threat of all out Nuclear war on Earth? Famine and hunger ravaging the planet? what task are you pursuing?

God: “Well, you see”, (slowing breaking into a grin“the nfl started this week, so I think its important that I…”


Oh No, not again…


God: that’s right, I’m going to be personally tampering with Brocky’s fantasy season, he must be punished


Jesus: Father, hasn’t he suffered enough? After the ultimate punishment last year, his anguish is reaching cataclysmic levels

Side note: the “ultimate punishment” from last year was the fact that I led my league in fantasy points, but still missed the playoffs due to a lack of head to head wins. Everyone had their best games while playing me. This is not hyperbole.


Jesus just walks off muttering to himself, God continues to talk

God: “anyways, lets see what we got here” whips out Brocky’s draft results “First round pick, Julio Jones? Decent selection, but he took him at number 3, when Antonio Brown was available, and who was naturally taken at number 4.  Oh, we gotta do something about this:

Snaps Fingers, Week 1, Brocky goes up against the person drafting right after me, Jones gets 4 catches for 66 yards, no TDs, while Brown gets 11 catches for 182 yards. 

God: Lets see what else we can do here, Oh, Brocky is also going against the Jaguars Defense?

Remebers Brockys’ awesome yet disparaging Jaguars preview

God: “Oh, well I know the answer to that”

Snaps fingers, Jaguars get 10 sacks, 5 turnovers and a defensive td.

God: Okay, lets see, hmm, Brocky seems confident that his idea of “sleeper picks” will pan out for him, the same instinct that led him to draft Devonta Freeman and Jordan Howard their rookie years, lets see, he’s thinking Kevin White will have a breakout year, and Purple Jesus will return to form with his change of venue?

Snaps Fingers, Kevin white gets injured making his second catch, he doesn’t have enough yards to get any additional points. Peterson averaged 3 yards a carry against the vikings


God: Alright, now that that’s taken care of, time to return to something more important, time to turn on the not so old television

God: Oh man, this is gonna be so awesome! BAZINGA!


God: There. Brocky starts the season 0-1. That’s what you get for using such a lame fantasy name:

(Don’t judge me)

God: And for extra shits and giggles, let’s have him win his non money leagues. The ones he autodrafted.

Congratulations, you've wondered to the profile the being commonly known as Brocky, step 2 is washing it off. Brocky is a castaway from the old site, and took part in the great migration of 2015. His tastes can vary from the cynical to the bizarre, and a weird affinity for the band Nightwish. Brocky is a die hard Chicago fan, and can be found hanging his hat in Indiana, his windbreaker in ohio, and once lost a shoe somewhere in northeast michigan (Don't worry lefty, you and your brother WILL be reunited) anything else? feel free to ask... also, if you're wondering about the pic, its a hyena carrying a the head of a lion. King of the Ocean my Ass!

I am 1-0 and top scorer in my money/auction and DFO/draft league. But the former is doomed, being a David Johnson (sobs profusely) side, with lead quartered back Kirk Cousins (benched already for $1 backups Sam Bradford and Jacoby Brissett).

I mean, I’m good at the waiver wire, but there’s a fucking limit already.


Went 4-0 and took top score in the league where $ is paid out for top score for first 12 weeks.

I need to either buy a lottery ticket or go to a strip club and see if I can get the best looking dancer to have sex with me for free.


Good luck to you!!!

You’re not gonna win HRTF either. Zymm the Destroyer, who laughs at your puny attempts to defy her, is probably gonna humiliate half the league while King Hippo the Mighty curbstomps the rest. I’m expecting a swath of carnage that makes Irma look like a spring breeze.


Top score in two leagues this week, thanks to strategic KHunt selections.

Fully expect to finish last.

Game Time Decision

come from behind ( – Aaron rodgers) win in the money league. The guy i was against had the 3rd most points this week and still lost. Been there
And a win in my PPR league.

waiting to lose out in both leagues.


One one hand I am in 0 places of all open and closed leagues. While on the other hand, I am 1st place in every league that isn’t in existence!.

Game Time Decision

this sounds like Schrodinger’s fantasy football league,


First place in one league. Second-last in another.

/as it should be

Heaven is a Brawl stage? I’d figure that’s Hell. And then Meta Knight beats the ever-loving piss out of you, of course.


There were two games in my league this week that were decided by less than half a point.


I AM AWARE. As trollsohard eloquently pointed out he beat me by less than half a point.

88-89 loss. 1 goddamned point. What’s worse, I set up the auto-draft profile for the team that beat me and managed it as a placeholder until my brother-in-law took it over on Friday. Faaahhhhkk.

Feel free to pile on with the beating yourself off jokes below.


Makes me feel good about my All-Patriots lineup.

(Read that however you want, either way Colin Kaepernick won’t be on my roster).

32 NFL owners nod in agreement.


Troll God is awesome. And can’t wait to see what state gets His wrath next! (fingers crossed for Florida again)

/reads “state”
//sells storm windows, puts feet up


Hey, maybe someday you’ll be a state instead of…

/looks up Puerto Rico

…a slave colony.



/cause it’s usually sunny and bright in Puerto Rico, you see.
