Week One of the NFL season always provides both unexpected fantasy stars as well as fantasy duds. This week, in the #C3FF my own team went the "fantasy dud" route, despite being filled with starters and stars, while Block Someone! Oher...Not laid the lumber to the rest of the league with an astonishing 150.5 FP!
Leading the charge to victory for Block Oher Not were guys like Carson Palmer, who was the top-scoring QB last week, Carlos Hyde who was the top-scoring RB, WR Keenan Allen with his 15 snags (3rd best WR in wk 1), and Tyler Eifert, the 4th-best TE.
Adding/piling on with the Miami Dolphins' defensive team (5th in FP among defenses) and PL Justin Tucker from Baltimore. DeMarco Murray was 15th among all RBs, a bit surprisingly (to me anyhow), and put up 16 FP. Even Flex WR Donte Moncrief was the beneficiary of an injury to T.Y. Hilton, as the Colts' backup WR posted 13 FP and ranked 16th among all WRs last week.
Congrats to team "Block Someone! Oher...Not" for an exceptional start to the 2015 FFL season...and everyone else in his division (me included) looks to have a long, difficult fantasy season if Block Someone Oher Not continues the fantasy success. The truly scary thing?
He also has A.J. Green!
