Welp, the 2014 NFL Regular season has begun to wind down. For Yucs, Jags, Flaming Thumbtacks, Rai-DUHS and Jests fans - it can't get here quick enough. Most of us play fantasy football these days and I'm happy to say that for the first time since 2011, I'm back in the post-season. Of course, my reward for having the best record in the league is to see my two top point producers, Demarco Murray and TY Hilton sustain injuries and both are the dreaded "Game Time Decision" for this week. Add to that I have players going on Saturday at the same positions its some tough decisions I have make. I'm betting Murray will play. Murray practiced and I'm debating whether to roll the dice with my workhorse. The alternative is to stick a ticked off Desean Jackson into the lineup against his old team (I may play him anyway since T.Y. is iffy).
My commish thought it was a good idea to start the playoffs in Week 16 and the championship in Week 17. Great. Just great. If by some miracle I survive this week, I'm sure half my starters will play about a half next week.
Of course, you're not here to see me whine about my fantasy football playoff problems, you're here to see me pick some games. It was a decent week last week as clocked in with a 10-6 record and 1-1 in the upset specials.
Let's see what we have in store for us this week.
Last Week: 10-6 62% Upset Specials: 1-1 50%
Season: 138-86 61% Upset Specials: 10-20 33%
Chargers 20, 49ers 13 - Yay! San Diego gets the SuperChargers for another season. Meanwhile, San Francisco can't seem to wait to get a .705 winning pct and an NFC Championship out the door. Do you not remember what the Niners were BEFORE Harbaugh? Let me remind you - Mike Singletary.
