I always say I’ll take a Bears win over a fantasy win every time, and this week I’ll say it again.
What a game by the Bears tonight on MNF, taking down the Packers 20-17 to go to 3-0! D and special teams plays came up big.
Now, if Cutler had gotten one more TD, one less INT, or if Gould had hit his first long FG, could I have gotten the victory? Sure. But it was really Austin Collie on the opposing team that sunk me, along with weak performances by Austin and Welker.
A little late on the recap this week, but I’m off the schneid with my first victory.
Solid performances from Cutler, Austin, White, Welker and Gore.
On the bench nice efforts turned in from Jacoby Jones and Demaryius Thomas. That means my big decision this week is which of these four to start as my flex WR: Jones, Thomas, Legedu Naanee, or Devin Aromashodu. Really it’s between Jones, Thomas, and Naanee b/c I’m already starting 4 Bears against the Packers, think that’s enough. I’d like to go Jones or Thomas, but Naanee plays Seattle, so we’ll see.
Starting to think about week 4, when Jamaal Charles and Thomas Jones are on a bye week. Was planning to put in Beanie Wells, but will he still be out hurt? Failed to jump on the waiver wire this week, wanting to keep my number high for someone I really wanted, hope that’s not a mistake. In the meantime I grabbed John Kuhn just in case. Who?!?! Exactly.
Chance favors the connected mind.
My koozie design for Chicago Booth 5-year reunion! Fingers crossed they turn out well…
Hurricane Ditka scored a massive 112 points this week, with solid performances from Cutler (even with the INT and fumble), White, Austin, Welker, and Charles.
Second highest point total in the league.
Only problem – I was playing the first highest point total – with Chris Johnson and Arian Foster’s breakout performance!
The kicker…I had Legedu Naanee on my bench and thought about playing him as my flex instead of Aromashodu – had I played him I would have won! My Bears-colored glasses shade my world view yet again, and it won’t be the last time.
Oh well. Still really loving my team on paper, the wins will follow soon, right?
Not planning on any waiver wire action this week, but plan to swap my IDP later in the week – probably for a Bear!
