Week Eight Recap

October 30, 2012 in Recaps

Editor's Note: In all my years of fantasy football, I've never seen such a strange week with half of the league starting players on a bye. Additionally, as you'll see below, there were some scoring anomalies, including the fact that five players equaled or exceeding the scoring output by one entire team.
Results:
    • Tokyo Wasabi Bombs 122, Elite Elephants 85
    • Ravens Nest 30, I Need Andrews Luck 26 (Seven players on a bye started between these two teams… embarrassing… the lowest-scoring game I have ever seen!)
    • Team Gibbs 104, Number One Philly Fan 83
    • Hunt for Orange October 72, Shanahan Tans 60
    • Get on the RGIII Bandwagon 142, House of Griffindor 44 (I don't know if this is the biggest blowout I've ever seen, but it's pretty close. Consider this: the 98-point margin of victory would have outscored all but three teams this week. Ugh!)
Trophies Awarded This Week:
    • Ken Daneyko Award (largest margin of victory of the season): GetOnThe RGIII Bandwagon defeats House of Griffindor, 142-44 (Duh! I don't see this one being broken this season)
    • Keith Olbermann Award (for (not) scoring at home — or even if you're alone!): I Need Andrews Luck, 26 (ditto)
    • Cincinnati Bungles Award (for losing really badly!): House of Griffindor loses to GetOnThe RGIII Bandwagon, 44-142 (ditto)
    • Jerry Glanville Award (awarded to the team with the highest total score for a single match-up this season): GetOnThe RGIII Bandwagon, 142 (still waiting for a team to crack 150)
Week 9 Games:
    • Tokyo Wasabi Bombs (3-5) vs. Ravens Nest (2-5-1)
    • I Need Andrews Luck (4-4) vs. Team Gibbs (6-2)
    • House of Griffindor (4-4) vs. Number One Philly Fan (4-4)
    • Get on the RGIII Bandwagon (5-3) vs. Hunt for Orange October (4-3-1)
    • Shanahan Tans (5-3) vs. Elite Elephants (2-6)
