ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL?
This is our favourite time of the year. Baseball playoff runs; Djokovic playing in the US Open finals today at 4 for the Grand Slam and YOUR Miami Dolphins visiting the land where players and coaches cheat. Did the evil genius make the steal of the draft with his new rookie QB, or are our Fins ready to make a serious playoff run with a QB we have still not bought into? Can anyone say Deshaun Watson trade?
Our REGJB Fantasy Football season kicks off as we try to defend our championship from two years ago (last year we didn't run it) and everyone's favoruite REGJB Survivor Pool starts as well. Still time to join- just send your pick to FBpool12@gmail.com before the last game of the week- make a pick and don't forget to also pick the total score in the Fins/Cheaters game for an extra bye week.
Our Picks week one:
Here is our sleeper for 2021- the boys in Green from PA- the Philadelphia Eagles. We like their QB Jalen Hurts with a year under his belt and their electric WR Devonta Smith. We are rolling with Philly- the city of Freedom and Cheesesteaks (wit [cheese], of course) over the fading Falcons on the road. Philly +3.5. WIN
And as much as we like Philly, we do not like Da Bears so long as the redhead Andy Dalton is throwing the rock. Put in the rookie -and after Dalton gets destroyed tonight in LA, Justin Fields will be the starter in week two (which is why we drafted him in our FF league). Until then, as much as we do not like new LA QB Matthew Stafford, take the Rams -7.5 at home (also our survivor pick).
Browns at KC- we are not on the Cleveland bandwagon just yet. KC, riding a one game losing streak (they lost the super bow if you do not remember) -6 at home to right the ship, and over 53.
Packers at Saints- the post Drew Brees era starts in the Big Easy, once again smacked with a hurricane- talk about being unlucky (since it cannot be fake global warming). This is a road game for both teams, with the game being played in Jacksonville. In honor of the Packs QB stint as a Jeopardy host in the off season we will frame our pick in the form of a question: This team from Wisconsin beat the Saints in opening week one of the 2021 NFL season with a QB who both hosted Jeopardy and has a massive chip on his shoulder to light up the league and become a free agent next year. "Who is Green Bay -4 over the Saints." BIG LOSS
We don't love it, but we will bring a smile to Judge Newman and wager a C Note on the Fins who are on the road in New England getting 3 Fish. And our pick for the survivor pool total is 41. WIN
ONCE AGAIN- YOU CAN JOIN THE SURVIVOR POOL RIGHT NOW BY EMAILING TO Fbpool12@gmail.com and include one team and the Fins/Cheaters total. All your favourites are back- Fake Alex Michaels, De La Over, Colby, Weisman, Lucy Lew and more.
FINS WIN 17-16 SO THE TOTAL IS 33 AND THE WINNER IS SHUMIE AT 35!
