An interesting week in the Straight Up contest this week as only 4 Underdogs won their matchups. Three readers led the way with 10 out of 13 games correct. (CrazyBlueSniffer, Big Ben's Bathroom Blitz, and MaximumBob). Once again we had a game that no one got correct. As I'm sure you guessed, it was the Rams taking it to the Saints (how bad did that make YOU feel as a Colts fan?). On the other end of the spectrum, all readers got teh Ravens over the Cardinals and only 2 people picked the Dolphins and Jaguars respectively. Overall, G-string still leads by one game with a record of 82-34.
Against the Spread this week was mean to Stampede Blue readers (I know I have the worst week of my life only getting 3 games correct). As a group we only got 44% of the game correct. Only 4 games had more than 50% of the submissions get the game correct. Vegas woulda cleaner up on us! Best for the wee was Spread Eagles with 11 out of 13 correct a full two games ahead of second. Overall, The Lawn Wrangler moved into first place with a record of 63-47.
Fantasy information after the jump. Remember you can check out each of the fantasy leagues at http://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/league/stampedeblueleagueX where X is a number between 1 and 13.
The closest game this week came from League 11 where Commander_N_Chief lost to ackley by0.05 points. Ackley rode 33 points from Cam newton and 35 points from Steven Jackson to hold on for the win. They didn't even have a kicker in there and still won the week.
Special note that in league 1 we had another deplorable on blogger on blogger violence as mgrex's Statistical Anomaly wiped BBS by 21 points. The Statistical Anomaly teams went 8 and 5 this week in one of the better weeks he has had so far this season.
Overall point leader is still the Purple Swirlies from league 12 who is still averaging a remarkable 156.65 points per game. that team has 6 players who have score more than 100 points on the season and two more that are over 80 but none of the 5 players who have scored over 200 points on the season (Aaron Rodgers, Cam Newton, Drew Brees, Matthew Stafford, Tom Brady) . What a great draft!
Good luck this week!
