“Extra Point” takes a look at the league that the writer’s of drinkfive.com have upheld since the website’s inception. I will provide you with a situational glimpse into my team each week. You can take a more in-depth look at our league here: http://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/f1/135498/7
Extra Point: Colonel Forbin (0-2)
There’s no better way to describe week 2 than, THE FANTASY APOCALYPSE, Dave and Jason you nailed it with that one. If you avoided injury this week you are either lucky as hell, or you’re not in enough leagues!
Forbin’s crew was hacked up, with the loss of DeSean Jackson early in the 1st quarter with a sprained right shoulder, and the fracture Mark Ingram suffered to his hand. Ingram provided a glimmer of hope on an otherwise gloomy Sunday posting over 16pts before exiting. His 4-8 week timeline for return has sadly landed him on the wire.
But the Colonel welcomes 2nd year stud Knile Davis to the team. He has finally gotten the call with the apocalyptic injury to Charles, and this kid is going to deliver. He is an immediate RB1, start him. He will get the start over the under-performing Matt Forte if Chicago’s receiving core is still gingerly running routes. Opposing defenses don’t have to respect the deep ball if Marshall and Jeffery can’t run past the safeties, and because of this the defense destroys the line with heavy blitzing.
Under-performance has been synonymous with VJax thru the first two games and I see a trend starting. Jackson is fantasy reliant on huge plays and Lovie Smith does not air out the ball! I HATE YOU LOVIE SMITH, you’re still making my team lose! Until McCown and his big play receiver can get on the same page, we need to look elsewhere.
