Top NFL Players week 17

While there was only one mystery to be had on playoff positioning (New York Giants making it, the Dallas Cowboys going home) there were plenty of surprises with the performances of each top player this week. I was able to win my second money league’s super bowl, thanks to my opponent’s Aaron Rodgers resting up for next weekend.

Now that we’re done with the regular season of 2011, enjoy the playoffs, as all 3 of my favorite teams are in it this year.  Continue reading “Top NFL Players week 17” Top NFL Players week 17

Top NFL players week 6

As if this year’s NFL season hasn’t been crazy enough, 8 of this week’s top-5 are outside of the top-10 overall for the season. Ahmad Bradshaw claims the lone 30-point performance, putting it to those hapless Bills with 3 scores. Only two quarterbacks landed in the 20-point range, but all 5 running backs had a 20+ point performance. To make things even more exciting, all 6 wide receivers this week are fresh in our top-5 list.

My 49ers are 2nd in the NFL/NFC at 5-1, my Packers are atop by themselves at 6-0, and my prediction Eagles & Falcons are doing quite horrible. My fantasy teams with money involved are both 4-2, so being first/second place in those isn’t too shabby.

And, as you’ve been waiting for, on to the list!  Continue reading “Top NFL players week 6” Top NFL players week 6

Top NFL players – week 3

Who is going to be the hottest free agency pickup on the market this week? Yeah, the guy to my right, Torrey Smith, the Baltimore Ravens rookie wide receiver taking the place of Lee Evans for the week. This is shocking because not only did he tie Wes Welker for the top receiver position of this past weekend, but they both led all other fantasy players in points for their owners. Surprise? Yeah, a bit.

Another wideout makes the list this week in New York, Victor Cruz replacing Mario Manningham. Those two make the shock factor surreal.

As I only do Quarterbacks, running backs, and wide receivers on this list, I want to make a special shout-out to two players. One of my all-time favorites, Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley, grabbing 85 yards and 3 touchdowns from Aaron Rodgers (26 points) and… yes, the Dallas Cowboys kicker Dan Bailey for scoring 6-for-6 on field goals last night, netting him 21 fantasy points.

Without further ado, I present week 3’s top players:  Continue reading “Top NFL players – week 3” Top NFL players – week …
