Week 10 Literally Literate FFL Preview

g11_vs_vikingsWeek 10 action has the Vikes and Skins facing off in your Thursday game. Besides AD, I wouldn’t expect mush (typo–[much]–but in retrospect, “mush” is exactly what you can expect)  from the Vikes.

Here’s a look at the match ups this week in the Literally Literate FFL:

4) I Pitta the Fool vs 9) Team Reese

4) I Pitta the Fool vs 9) Team Reese

Should be a good game for me, but you know how that kind of thinking goes. Fully expecting the rest of my team to go out on injuries…

5) Trophy Wife vs 2) Cousin Vinny

5) Trophy Wife vs 2) Cousin Vinny

Real grudge match here! I need Trophy Wife to lose sooo bad! Or if Cousin Vinny starts tanking, that could work too, since I play them later on.

6) Dez Dispenser vs 10) Don't Call Me Rodney

6) Dez Dispenser vs 8) Don’t Call Me Rodney

Dez Dispenser has been a tough opponent as of late, and hopefully won’t continue to climb up the ranks. I’d like to see them go down as well.

10) Crawrsenal FC vs 3) Spacin' Vaders

10) Crawrsenal FC vs 3) Spacin’ Vaders

Really rootin’ for Crawrsenal here. Spacin’ Vaders is really strong, and I need a loss from them, since they have me beat on points.

1) [Br]eaking [Br]adshaw vs 7) The Blair Walsh Project

1) [Br]eaking [Br]adshaw vs 7) The Blair Walsh Project

Rootin’ for the underdog here, too! Yeah, I know, I want everyone above me to lose…it’s getting really real right now, ya’ll!

Week 10 Power Rankings

Week 10 is upon us, and the race for the playoffs is in full swing! There’s a three-way tie for the last two playoff spots, and I plan on getting one.

My lineup is finally full strength, and I couldn’t be more optimistic than this week. IF all goes according to plan, I should be able to have a big week (which I desperately need in a tiebreaker situation).

Tuesday Morning Relief: Still in the Hunt

030405-N-9109V-003

Another week in the books, and we’re one step closer to the playoffs. At 5-4 I’m still in the hunt.

wk 9 results

I had a decent game, but I really got saved by Luck, Stacy, and Allen. The byes and injuries really gave me a down lineup. Currently I’m ranked fifth, just out of the playoff picture, but I have the same record as third and fourth place. I’m just missing out based on my points for total, which is still relatively close.

wk 9 standings

With four weeks left, I’ve really got to rack up points and wins. 7-6 may make it to the playoffs, but I’d like to sittin’ a little prettier than that! My lineup is finally coming together full strength, and despite losing my RB2, RB3, and WR2, I’m expecting my biggest week yet.

my line

Zac Stacy has proven to be a beast, and him and Gore are two of the top scoring backs right now. Keenan Allen resurfaced this week, and I’m expecting big things from him as well. Luck is hanging steady, although I may try and grab a backup this week just for insurance purposes. Thomas &Thomas should do what they always do, barring a setback from J.Thomas’ injury.

All in all, I’ve still got a shot.

*Fingers Crossed*
