Cleavie Wonder

Weekend Observations

Your boy Cleavie Wonder is off to a good start in both of his fantasy football leagues, but If we’re being completely honest about the situation my teams have a few flaws.  In my trash talking league (2-0) Marshawn Lynch has not morphed into Beastmode just yet and Carlos Hyde looks like he may be a one hit wonder.  Fortunately Big Ben, Julian Edelman, and Kansas City’s defense have been able to offset their lack of production.

In my hurt your feelings league (1-0) I’m up by 14 points with my opponent starting Chris Ivory in the Monday night game.  I’m starting Brandon Marshall so I’m not worried about this week’s victory, but Jeremy Hill developed a case of the fumbles and Giovanni Bernard may not give him his starting job back.  Old man Peyton is on borrowed time and Justin Forsett doesn’t get quite as many touches in Marc Trestman’s offense as I would like.  The championship is still well within my grasp in both leagues, but it will take some savvy GM moves to preserve the victories.  Wish me luck.  Here are some observations over the weekend.

The smug coaching trio of Nick Saban, Steve Sarkisian, and Chip Kelly all had disappointing losses at home.  Alabama fell out of the top 10, USC is in panic mode, and the Eagles are two games out of first place two games into the season.  I couldn’t be happier!

The injury bug has hit the Dallas Cowboys REALLY hard.  Losing your diva #1 receiver is one thing, but Tony Romo is the straw that stirs the drink.  Although some experts are predicting the Cowboys will be able to weather the storm I think they will lose 6 or 7 of their next 10 games.  Stay tuned.

Ryan Mallett had 58 attempts on Sunday and only threw for 244 yards.  If you’re going to throw the ball that many times the least you can do is throw for 300 yards.  JJ Watt is quickly becoming the modern day version of Cortez Kennedy, the best defensive player in the league on a losing team with an inept offense.
