A helping of Stew helps me to cook Chris Cameron's goose (again)
My wife dishes out some of her homemade stew Sunday afternoon as I hoped the Carolina Panthers would dish out some of their own stew in Jonathan Stewart, aka JStew...
...and they did, as Stew scored one touchdown, rushed for 120 yards on 26 carries and amassed 23 fantasy points for my team en route to a 98-74 win over Sith Lord Chris Cameron.
It is the second time I've defeated him, with the first time coming in Week 4, 106-96, after which he said, I would "rue the day" when I met him again this week.
I said I wouldn't and that it would be another tight matchup between us.
At the end of Sunday's games, it couldn't be any tighter, with each of us having 64 points. His Wes Welker outscored my Randy Moss by the palindromic 21-12.
Then came last night where I had only one player, Aaron Rodgers, to his two players, Ryan Grant and Ray Rice.
The thing is while Chris's secret was that he is a Sith Lord, my secret is that I'm a Jedi Knight:
Jedi Knight trumps Sith Lord, not only in Star Wars mythology, but also in fantasy football, plus it doesn't hurt that I look a little like Jesus and I wear kick-ass boots...
...as Chris learned when ARod outscored his own running back and his opponent's running back, 34-10, last night to give me the 98-74 victory.
Next week: ARod faces a bigger challenge in Drew Brees, but I'm hoping to have Steve Slaton and DeSean Jackson back in the lineup to help ARod slay the dragon. Tune in next Tuesday to see if they and I were successful in our quest...
...and later today: Renal Failure celebrates his latest victory and breaks down the possible scenarios that could lead to his ultimate defeat.
