Welcome to Tuesday Morning QB (TMQB), the post that looks back each week at what could have been done differently to win the matchups in the HBFFL. What could have turned those losses into wins? I'm Chris Cameron filling in for Unfinished Person and I'm here to answer that question.
This was a crazy stats week in the NFL. How crazy? 14 QB's had 300 points or more, and 7 of them had at least 3 TD's. 9 RB's with 100+. 16 WR's with 100+. 6 WR's had yds in the 79-99 yd range along with a TD each.
With so many players blowing up there had to be fantasy hopes for victory dashed by points left on the benches. And it was that way. But first, we have to address the also-rans.
What The Canuck could have fielded their optimal lineup and still would not have beaten Renal Failure. Predator Press had the win no matter what players Bourbon Blasters offered up as starters.
Now time for the meat and potatoes...
Bald Spots goes with Smith for Moore, Turner in the flex, and SF def and they beat Delusion of Adequacy. Nonames plays James Jones instead of Doug Martin and they notch a W.
And then there is my game against UP. He started Mikel LeShoure at the flex while Dez Bryant's 17 points languished on the bench. That was good enough for the win. Hell, if he had gone with Sproles he would have tied.
