Trotter League-Week 5

Week 5 marked many changes within the Trotter League. The previously undefeated team was knocked out of first place with a loss to the commissioner. The winless team finally got out of his slump and thoroughly demolished his competition by 32 points. Finally, nearly every team shuffled spots up and down within the league standings. In the end, all that can be said is that football is an unpredictable sport. Likewise, the same can be said about each of our Harlem Globetrotter fantasy football tacticians.

Here is the complete list of the 2013 Trotter League teams, 10 of which are owned by Globetrotters stars:

Big Easy Lofton: Melph52

Moose Weekes: Gutcheckerz

Flight Time Lang: Three Peat Flight

Slick Willie Shaw: Ill Will’s Team

Special K Daley: Panama

Handles Franklin: Handles Is Cold Fam

Bones Millien: AJ Millien’s Team

Ant Atkinson: Country Boy

A. Henery-Phi (K) M. Bryant-Atl

Houston (D) Baltimore

FINAL SCORE: 118.20-98.56

SUMMARY:

Despite it being the lowest winning score of the season for our commissioner, Handles was able to pull an upset over the 1st place TANNEHILLbillies, thanks in part to a 20 point game from his kicker, Alex Henery.

A. Luck-Ind (QB) T. Brady-NE

E. Decker-Den (WR) B. Marshall-Chi

K. Thompkins-NE (WR) A. Johnson-Hou

D. Avery-KC (WR) M. Williams –TB

J. Charles-KC (RB) R. Rice-Bal

O. Daniels-Hou (TE) V. Davis-SF

D. Akers-Det (K) J. Brown-NYG

New Orleans (D) Denver

FINAL SCORE: 121.06-77.78

SUMMARY:

Jamaal Charles had an incredible day, which helped Big Easy drive past struggling Slick Willie Shaw in this week’s matchup. Big Easy is making a strong push for the top; this is his 3rd win in a row, which places him at 4th place in the standings.


COUNTRY BOY vs. GUTCHECKERZ

C. Newton-Car (QB) D. Brees-NO

A. Boldin-SF (WR) L. Fitzgerald-Ari

M. Sanu-Cin (WR) G. Tate-Sea

J. Nelson-GB (WR) H. Nicks-NYG

M. Lynch-Sea (RB) E. Lacy-GB

D. Williams-Car (RB) R. Hillman-Den

C. Clay-Mia (TE) C. Fleener-Ind

S. Gostkowski-NE (K) P. Dawson-SF

Cleveland (D) Kansas City

FINAL SCORE:  91.72-119.22

SUMMARY:

Strong performances by Drew Brees, Hakeem Nicks, and the Kansas City defense were enough for Moose to topple Ant this week. Ant doesn’t seem to have a lot of answers on his bench either.


ONLYHERETOBEATHERB vs. AJ MILLIEN’S TEAM

R. Wilson-Sea (QB) C. Kaepernick-SF

R. Cobb-GB (WR) V. Cruz-NYG

M. Colston-NO (WR) A. Brown-Pit

V. Brown-SD (WR) S. Smith-Car

C. Spiller-Buf (RB) L. McCoy-Phi

K. Moreno-Den (RB) C. Johnson-Ten

K. Rudolph-Min (TE) J. Finley-GB

M. Prater-Den (K) B. Walsh-Min

Cincinnati (D) Arizona

FINAL SCORE: 135.10-103.12

SUMMARY:

It was a monumental day for OnlyHereToBeatHerb; his 135 points were enough to topple Bones to claim his first victory of the season. There are reasons why both these teams are now 1-4 … Bones started two players on a bye, while OnlyHereToBeatHerb started one.

 

THREE PEAT FLIGHT vs. DARNELL’S TEAM

P. Manning-Den (QB) A. Rodgers-GB

C. Johnson-Det (WR) W. Welker-Den

J. Edelman-NE (WR) M. Wallace-Mia

T. Hilton-Ind (WR) R. Broyles-Det

D. Sproles-NO (RB) F. Gore-SF

R. Mathews-SD (RB) B. Green-Ellis-Cin

J. Graham-NO (TE) J. Gresham-Cin

C. Sturgis-Mia (K) R. Gould-Chi

St. Louis (D) Green Bay

FINAL SCORE: 136.36-101.06

SUMMARY:

It’s a nice luxury when your quarterback scores nearly a third of your points every week. Peyton Manning had another jaw-dropping game, piling up 41 points in the shootout against the Cowboys. Accordingly, Flight Time, the reigning league champion, has now happily taken the 1st place spot from TANNEHILLbillies.


PANAMA vs. JOHN’S TEAM

E. Manning-NYG (QB) M. Stafford-Det

D. Bowe-KC (WR) D. Bryant-Dal

T. Austin-StL (WR) V. Jackson-TB

R. Randle-NYG (WR) D. Jackson-Phi

M. Forte-Chi (RB) T. Richardson-Ind

D. Richardson-StL (RB) D. Murray-Dal

T. Gonzalez-Atl (TE) J. Cook-StL

D. Bailey-Dal (K) S. Janikowski-Oak

New England (D) Chicago

FINAL SCORE: 125.66-108.68

SUMMARY:

Jet’s seemingly unbeatable team has suffered its second loss in a row, as Special K got a late win thanks to Tony Gonzalez’s 20 point performance on Monday night. Too bad Jet didn’t start Chicago wide receiver Alshon Jefferey, whose 218 receiving yards and 38 fantasy points would have been a nice replacement for Vincent Jackson … who was on a bye week.
