A special/limited edition Pepsi can goes to the winner! That strikes me as a half-decent marketing gimmick-good job soul-less international corporation.
I wasn’t too happy drafting 5th in a couple of leagues this year but it turns out it was one of a few sweet spots this year considering who has gone down to injury. You weren’t high enough to grab Saquon/McCaffrey and not low enough to be enticed by Thomas. Sometimes the sun shines on this old man’s arsehole.
TO THE GAME!
-The Jags are the youngest team in the league at 24.9 years. If Miami didn’t have Fitz they would be the youngest. That tends to happen when you jettison all your assets for draft picks I guess.
-The Fins are without wins this year but not by design so there’s a bit of grumbling amongst the faithful. But last week’s game was going fine until cb Byron Jones went down and was replaced by the youngest player in the league (wish me luck spelling this) last of the first rounder’s cb Igbinoghene. Diggs went a-feasting and the game turned. Sometimes it’s that simple.
-You do want to keep an eye out for 6’1″, 230 pound rook “plays all the skill positions” Laviska Shenault though. He’s an entertaining player that runs in a violent fashion and he gets the ball all over the field. His problem in college was staying healthy and so far so good.
-The over/under on this is 49 and the Jags can’t pressure the qb yet and Miami gives up the most yards per play two weeks in.
-Minshew has been exceptionally efficient with a 75% completion rate, a 7.9 yards per attempt and 6 TD’s to boot. His only two interceptions came on a batted pass at the line of scrimmage and rook wr trying to catch a pass that was not meant for him.
-Fantasy sweetheart come-lately is UDFA rb James Robinson who had 120 combined yards and a score. Good for him.
Well, that was my best effort to make this game look good. I actually do think it will be entertaining however. Go get ’em!
