Down to the wire!

UT 3 points ahead, with his Ravens defense yet to play vs. my kicker and wide receiver. Website predicts 16.6 total for me and 9 for him, which, when you factor in his 3-point lead and the general unreliability of the prediction algorithm, means everyone's fingertips are going to be bloody after this nail-biter.

(Maybe I should have a side career as a color commentator. That metaphor is downright visceral.)

One thing is sure, Russell Wilson kicked Drew Brees' ass this week, utterly and completely. Excellent game, Toads!

My best receiver went on IR. His replacement only gets about 2-3 catches a game these days. Gonna take a miracle.

My bench is a little bit beaten up.



But I've entirely re-jiggered the team. Let's do this

That's a long season of abuse.

I always think of hockey as the tough guy sport but somehow they manage 82 games a year and Jaromír Jágr plays at 44 years of age...

Crap, they were both just "limited practice" last time I checked. Problem is I only have one RB that isn't gimped, and nobody in the free agent pool comes close. Oh well, I went with the gimp that the popup window said was most likely to play. Drew Brees will make them all irrelevant.
