Not a whole lot of action this week in the ranks. I’m still in the playoff hunt, and actually made a move I think will help me out for the rest of the season. I went ahead and traded Demaryius Thomas to The Blair Walsh Project for Alfred Morris.

My reasoning was this: I’ve wanted to trade Thomas before, but never got anything great in return during negotiations. Thomas has solidified himself as the go-to guy on the Broncos, racking up 5 TD’s in three weeks while Wes Welker and Eric Decker have been hauntingly lackluster the last few weeks.

The Broncos are going up against the Chiefs twice in the next three weeks, and although I have no doubt Manning would roll himself out on the field on a gurney at this point in his career, I could see something bad happening in the next few weeks with the pressure he’ll be facing from the opposing line.

My RB’s are now Frank Gore, Zac Stacy, Alfred Morris, Darren Sproles, and Shane Vereen, with Kendall Hunter as a handcuff. I feel that WR has been more hit or miss this year, and I also feel that with D. Thomas’ 3 TD’s last week, I may have gotten the most I possibly can out of him. Finding someone to post 8 points in his absence may be somewhat of a crapshoot, but I believe it is very much possible.

However, if I could move say 2 RB’s and Keenan Allen for a stud WR, I’d be all in!


Week 9 Power Rankings

hard_math.png.scaled500Math is hard, but plugging numbers into a pre-made algorithm is easy! Here’s the Literally Literate Week 9 Power Rankings. The Playoff hunt thickens with only 5 weeks remaining in the regular season, three teams sit at 4-4 while the top 3 are 5-3 or better.

A Show of Force: Week 8 Power Rankings


Much like Kim Un here, I was only slightly amused by my performance this week. I topped out on points, but lost my RB2 and WR2, which left me scrambling on the waiver wire. I picked up J. Boykin from Green Bay and Roy Helu from Washington to help smooth things out. Darren Sproles coming back should help, and hopefully Zach Stacy will continue to run hard in St. Louis.

With that in mind, here’s how this week’s power rankings shake out for the Literally Literate FFL:

Tuesday Morning Relief: An End to Losing


Ah yes, there’s nothing quite as nice as getting off the schnide.

This week saw the standings get jumbled up in the Literally Literate FFL.

The two top contenders, [Br]eaking [Br]adshaw and Cousin Vinny’s Escort Services both went down while Trophy Wife and Team Reese continued their ascent to the top of the leader board and Dez Dispenser logged her first win with the most points this week.

With the playing field evening out, the standings are getting closer and closer, as is evident by this week’s Power Rankings:

[Br]eaking [Br]adshaw and Cousin Vinny still top the leader board, but myself and Trophy Wife are closing in and only one game out of the lead. Crawrsenal FC drops this week to 9th, despite having more wins than Dez Dispenser, who climbs out of the bottom of the ranks with 127 points, to go along with her high per game average. The Blair Walsh Project and Spacin’ Vaders are locked up in a tie for 5th, and Dez Dispenser and Team Reese fight it out over the 7th position.

This week doesn’t have any super studs hidden out there, but with the RB situation in Oakland and WR’s posting more consistent numbers league-wide, there are several favorable pickups this week. Here’s the heavy hitters:
