WEEK 5

 
  TATER TODDS 114.70  vs   CHUBB-Y CHASERS 90.64  He opened the spreadsheet, crunched the numbers, consulted the experts and went with it, playing Kamara AND Ingram aaaaand it did literally nothing and didn't even get him close to a win. Good one Alec.  Dustin, sorry, I mean, Todd Gurley, did the business again, easily putting up another filthy stat line to power this absolute dark horse of a team to victory. I feel like I've never seen anyone win fantasy with the first overall pick, but this year could definitely be the year (that I remember) if Gurley keeps going like this.   Tater Todd's Top Trio:  Todd Gurley - 29.30 Ben Roethlisberger - 22.60 Zach Ertz - 17.00   Chubb-y Chaser's Top Trio:  Mark Ingram - 19.30 (Alvin Kamara had 3.90 for the sake of posterity). Jared Goff - 16.34 Christian McCaffrey - 15.30

 THETANEHILLSHAVEEYES 97.10 vs  NAPOLEON'S ARMY 102.22   It was so, so so close. As I watched what was quite frankly a pathetic giant Monday night circle jerk for Drew Brees, I held out hope that Pieyre was going 0-2 against the rooks, but old faithful did it for him, pulling out a comeback victory at the last possible moment.  Francis - commiserations, but honestly, you should of known that the STUD that is Isiash Crowell was going to go off for a Jet's rushing record of 219 yards in a single game. C'mon man. Get these drunk decisions in order.   TheTaneHillsHaveEyes Top Trio:  James Conner (sigh) - 30.50 Matt Ryan - 14.40 Baltimore - 11.00   Napoleon's Army's Top Trio:  Drew 'throwing for the most yards ever isn't really that big a deal' Brees - 26.72 Antonio Brown - 22.10 TJ Yeldon - 18.20

 SEE YOU IN 2054 79.02 vs  MILDLYDANGERRUSS 110.28   As inevitable as the tides I am once again the undisputed leader of our league.  Is it petty I care so much about this? Sure. Is this reminiscent of when I would make all my friends race their bikes against me when I was 10 years old because I knew I would win all the time and then all those friends decided they didn't want to be friends with me anymore? We will see.  Unfortunately for BT, Adrian Peterson was not his savior this week and picked up an injury on the way. The good news? At least you didn't trade 30 point-scoring maverick James Conner away for a janky defense and a player who put up 14 yards (net) and then went on IR the next day.  In terms of trades, I guess I am the loser. In terms of actually winning, well, you know.   See You In 2054's Top Trio:  Ginormous Sell Out - 19.92 David Johnson - 19.10 Cleveland - 12.00   Mildly DangerRuss's Top Trio:  Cam Newton - 18.38 Melvin Gordon III - 18.00 Sony Michel - 17.00

  THE DIRTY PISTONS 101.18  vs BO$$E$ 85.84  Hold on, hold on, what's this? Jack is back from the dead. Staring at a 0-3 hole, the playoffs a distant vision of first season success, the big lad is back in the game capturing his second win in 2 weeks.  Led by Odell 'nice of you to finally turn up' Beckham and Deshaun Watson, he put Aaron's team away in style with his top score of the season. Is this a premonition for future success?! Yahoo says no and that you're missing out on the playoffs on points difference. Rough.  Aaron, apparently no need for you to get it together as Yahoo believes you're making the playoffs anyway even with a team comprised almost entirely of Vikings players...   The Dirty Piston’s Top Trio:  Odell Beckham Jr - 2338 Deshaun Watson - 22.00 Joe Mixon - 17.50   BO$$E$ Top Trio:  Saquon Barkley - 24..90 Robert Woods - 14.50 Kirk Cousins - 14.14

 NINJA TURTLE POWER 96.40 vs  SE CHOMPIES IV 98.94   Super, super close matchup here with Brett's team doing just enough to beat Raph's.  Does this mean the 'Yahoo Fave' is back on track to win our league? Dear readers, it does not. Does it mean that Raph should have played Kenny Golladay instead of any Calvin Ridley or Devonta Freeman? Dear readers. It does.  It is also completely filthy that Brett has a choice between Brady or Mahomes every week. Disgusting. Commissioner intervention is required. Who needs a QB?   Ninja Turtle Power's Top Trio:  Andrew Luck - 24.60 Davante Adams- 20.00 Carolina - 12.00   SE Chompies IV's Top Trio:  Tom Brady - 29.54 Adam Thielen - 17.60 Kareem Hunt - 15.40
