TEAM BEAST DOME FEED THE BEAST (WEEK 6-7)
TEAM BEAST DOME
FEED THE BEAST.
There I was. 84.5 Points after Thursday Night Football from my Texans that included Arian Foster/Andre Johnson/Texans Defense/Ryan Fitzpatrick and the QB/K with Randy Bullock.
With Percy Harvin/Marshawn Lynch still to go, I figuered I was a virtual lock to increase my 3 game winning streak to 4 games. Then the impossible happpened and the Seahawks forgot that Marshawn Lynch is on the field and ran a completely different offense that involved Russell Wilson trying to be Peyton Manning. The results, 14/28 126 Yards/1 INT/0 TDs, while Marshawn Lynch only saw 2 carries in the 1st half.
This is not the first time Pete Carroll has forgot to run the football with Marshawn Lynch, the other time was Week 2 against the Chargers where Marshawn only saw 6 carries all game. The result, the Seahawks lost to the Chargers. So either Seattle has to wake the fuck up and realize Russell Wilson is only good when the running game is on BEAST MODE, or fall lower in the Standings behind the 49ers. I will choose the first option.
Steven Jackson helped ruin my week as well. First carry of the game S-Jax was a BEAST and ran for 13 Yards. He finished the first drive with 3 Carries for 20 Yards as the Falcons took the early 3-0 lead. Then coach Mike Smith decided that Matty Ice is all they need to win this football game, and S-Jax only saw three more carries the rest of the game. The result, Falcons were dominated by the Bears. Worst part of everything, Antone Smith scored another TD running a little dump pass that works every single time. Why they don’t ever run this play with S-Jax makes no sense as he was the protégé to Marshall Faulk in St.Louis and still posses some of the best hands at the RB position, keyword is some.
Will S-Jax rebound? The answer is yes, that game was obviously a season low and the good news is the Falcons got blownout in the process. Antone Smith role was still the same after the TD as he was seeing limited touches and S-Jax was blocking for nearly the entire 2nd half as the Falcons were in comeback mode. Will the rebound come this week? Maybe, maybe not but I will have to start him to find out as James Jones against Arizona or Kenny Britt against Seattle is not an option. Miles Austin is still on my team, but he is turning more waiver wire worthy as time goes by now that Jordan Cameron is finding his game again.
The past is the past, and now it is time to focus on Week 7.
My opponent is rolling with Aaron Rodgers, and Randy Bullock missed a FG and now goes to Heinz field. Time to sink his battleship as Mason Crosby is probably the most underrated kicker in Fantasy Football today. Only three seasons ago, Mason Crosby was the #1 Kicker selected in Fantasy Football, and last season I ranked Crosby higher than every expert. There is a reason why I was selected best Fantasy Expert of the Kicker Position of the last two preseasons, and following the QB/K is always a factor.
Next order of business is my QB position. While the Ryan Fitzpatrick train helped me win two straight, and could of easily been a 3rd had the following BUST performances above never happened. I have to put Joe Flacco in my lineup against the Falcons. Flacco looked like Peyton Manning himself with 4 first quarter TDs as he was tearing up a Bucs defense that held its ground against the Steelers and Saints (sort of). Regardless, Flacco is going in my lineup as his potential to outshine Ryan Fitzpatrick should not be a hard feat. Especially when you look at what Teddy Bridgewater/Eli Manning/Jay Cutler were able to cut up the Falcons the last three weeks. Captain Flacco, your time is now.
I would have been 6-0 if I would of drafted Steve Smith Sr. who I thought was going to slip through the cracks like he has in 100% of the other Fantasy Football drafts around the world. Would of/Should of/Could of, Dwayne Bowe will have to pick up the Steve Smith slack this week as Mike Evans is on Bye.
If Ray Rice doesn’t hit his girl, if I draft Steve Smith Sr, if RGIII does not hurt his ankle on an invisble defender, this team has championship written all over it, and it is not even close to the original BEAST DOME TEAMS that you can see by clicking the link below and scrolling to the comment section.
ORIGINAL BEAST DOME TEAMS
Munt; Love the articles and Im always looking to flip the switch to BEAST
Im curious about your thoughts about Mr Harvin this year. I too drafted him like the beast we all know he is, but what gives? Im hurting with his less than 10 Ppr avg pts a week. Stand pat? Lets get to these playoffs, we got rings to size
Lamborghini Percy should have had a HUGE Monday Night two weeks back with 3 TDs taken away, 2 on the same drive.
Last week I don’t know what the Seahawks were doing and that was just a low all-around for the team. Give him this week to prove his worth once again, it would be nice to see Harvin run some vertical routes like Desean Jackson and show off his speed, instead of turning him into the next Tavon Austin.
Thanks for more content and fuel to Beast!
You should be able to breeze by Spiders this week. That team needs the Beastdome vision. I kinda like the Bradshaw & TQuizz strategy, however it keeps his potential a bit low.
Will you be posting any buy low(other than Dougie) or sell high options for the trade market?
Would you trade Julius Thomas for Martin and Miller?
Frankie, unless your backup TE is Gronk, then I would keep JT.
Who is the weak link out of Martin, Andre, or DJax rest of season? .5 PPR, 2 pt bonus for 100+ yards. Need to trade one for a TE unfortunately.
Obvious answer seems like DJax, but I’m starting to think he’s for real after demolishing Sea and Ari, plus he has a tasty home matchup vs Phi in week 16.
Munt, Is Reed > Gates?
Harvin was just traded to the Jets! What fantasy implications to you foresee from that crazyness? Buy low or sell high?!?
I really like DJax with the prospect of an early RG3 return. If you have solid RBs then move Martin.
Doug Martin sucks!!!
Have fun starting a guy who “might” get you 7 points @ most. TB is a horrible team and will continue to get blown out. That means they will be passing the ball A LOT. I just dropped Martin in my 10 man league. I was sick and tired of starting him and getting nothing. Temper expectations Beast Nation. Martin is an average RB @ best.
