If a player exceeded his projections, he gets the ultimate celebratory affirmation of one's prowess, the high five.
|RB Alfred Morris|
WR#2 Eric Decker- Decker seems to have gotten back on Peyton Manning's good side. Decker followed up a brilliant performance last week vs. the Ravens with another 2 touchdown game vs. the Browns. He also had 6 catches for 65 yards, overachieving his projections by nearly 10 points.
DEFENSE: San Diego Chargers- My league commissioner locks our rosters in the playoffs so I had to scout ahead to find a good defensive matchup for the finals. I had the Chargers D for the last few weeks of the regular season and decided their week 16 matchup vs. the Jets was a matchup too good to pass up. Keeping the Chargers as my defense really paid off. The San Diego D sacked first time starter QB Greg Mcelroy an astounding 11 times. Special teams also ran back a punt for a touchdown. San Diego reaped 23 points from the Jets for me. They were projected to score 11.33 points.
If a player meets or comes near to meeting his projections, he gets the modern day version of the ass smack, the brofist.
|TE Jimmy Graham|
TE Jimmy Graham- Graham still was not able to get in the end zone, but he was able to finally meet his projections this week. Graham had a big game vs. the Cowboys. He recovered a fumble by his own teammate in overtime, setting up the game winning field goal. Unfortunately there is no fantasy translation for me. Graham had 7 receptions for 88 yards.
If a player does not come any where near his projections, he gets nuked...
FLEX DeMarco Murray- Murray fumbled for the second straight game on Sunday and did not score a touchdown. He was only able to get 40 yard rushing on a bad New Orleans defense. He did have 4 receptions for 51 yards, but underachieved his projections by 10 points.
Overall, my team beat its' projected score by 3 points. Winning the league championship meant I swept the top 3 purses in my league. One for best record in the regular season, most points scored in the regular season, and the championship purse. All in all as very successful season for me, mostly because I did a lot of research pre-draft and was aggressive in making waiver acquisitions to strengthen my roster.
