Welcome to the Monday Nightmare. When I stated this feature three years ago, it was to provide an outlet for those whose fantasy weeks were ruined on Monday. The impetus being, I lead the world in being worked over on Monday night. Seriously, I’m considering a fantasy league which will outlaw Monday nights.
So I figured it was a near certainty my man, Elliot Harrison, would make up the 12-point difference in our NFL AM vs. NFL Fantasy Live league. EH had Demaryius Thomas and Matt Prater. I had Eric Decker.
But a strange thing happened.
Decker had 53 yards (5.3 points) and missed a deep post late (perfect).
Thomas scored a touchdown (of course) and Prater had three PATs.
I was so morose, I didn’t even check the scores as a I pounded a Diet Pepsi or six at A Slice of New York, my typical Monday night viewing venue of choice. And then I checked the scores to pen this column, and here’s what I found.
Plantar Smashiitis 94.24
Adam’s Boutique 94.54
What? This never happens. I’m about to come out on top here?
Well, not so fast. I would put the chances of a stats correction at a near certainty. Kind of like the way it’s a near certainty John Cena is going to annoy the heck out of me on RAW. Seriously, can I not even enjoy a victory for even a second without having to think about this stuff?
But enough about me, what about the rest of you? I’ve seen some of the tweets filtering through on Twitter. So let it out. Expecting a big night from Peyton Manning? Julio Jones let you down? Don’t hold it in. Consider this your fantasy therapy couch. Let it out, friends. You’ll feel better when you do.
Because seriously, what was the deal with Manning tonight?
For the record, you can submit your fantasy questions to NFL Fantasy Live, Michael Fabiano or me on Twitter. But realize, NFL Fantasy Live has 70,000 followers, and Fabiano has 60,000. Me? Just 13. See, the odds are better I will answer your question, so hit me up both via Twitter or via Facebook (oh wait, I told you to stop going to Facebook). Go instead to Google+.
