Kyler Murray to Deandre Hopkins for the dub

There isn’t much that needs to be said other than holy shit. Just watch.

Fantasy Football glory isn’t likely, but sometimes glory comes in other ways

With two weeks remaining before fantasy playoffs, I will be 4-6 with a long shot to make it if I win the next two. With 6 of 12 making the postseason, I sit at 8th knocking on the door. Of the three other teams I am competing with for the final two spots, I realistically can only beat one in a tie breaker. Crazy shit happens in this league so I won’t count it out completely. But I would be surprised to make the playoffs.

While that may sound disappointing, sometimes there are other victories to be had. I have one person in my league who loves to shit on my blog every opportunity he gets. He is currently second to last in points scored and a game ahead of me. I played him this week. I absolutely skull fucked his team this week and eliminated him from the postseason. I have spent 10 weeks shitting on him repeatedly. I can at least hang my hat on that victory.

To that person, you know who you are. Get absolutely fucking bent. I will remind you of this day every single opportunity I have. That feeling of being in hell is something I never want you to forget. Honor the goddamn Huddle or be destroyed.

Drew Brees’ Injured – First Glimpse of Jameis Winston

Saints QB Drew Brees may miss some time due to an injury to his ribs. Winston came in for some mop up duty after the Saints had the lead. He didn’t look great. He left much to be desired. That being said, I hope he gets the start next week because I would love to see a full game with him.

When Bridgewater came in against the Rams in 2019, he looked equally sub standard if not more going 17/30 for 165 yards. He then went 5-0 as a starter and looked good enough to earn a hefty contract from the Panthers.

It remains to be seen whether or not Brees will miss more time after being sidelines for a large portion Sunday. I hope he does to heal up and so I can see what the Saints have with Winston.
