Trotter League-Week 7

Minimal movement in the standings after Week 6’s games as well as upcoming match-ups between identical record teams must have fueled a fire in the bellies of our Globetrotters. As a result, 9 of the 12 teams in our Trotter League have shuffled spots to make Week 7 one of the more exciting weeks in our fantasy league. 


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

Spider Wilks: Darnell’s Team

Jet Williams: John’s Team

Week 7 Recaps, with position-by-position comparisons:

HANDLES IS COLD FAM vs. COUNTRY BOY

T. Romo-Dal (QB) C. Newton-Car

A. Green-Cin (WR) A. Boldin-SF

R. Wayne-Ind (WR) J. Nelson-GB

A. Dobson-NE (WR) K. Allen-SD

A. Foster-Hou (RB) M. Lynch-Sea

R. Bush-Det (RB) D. Williams-Car

A. Gates-SD (TE) H. Miller-Pit

A. Henery-Phi (K) S. Gostkowski-NE

Houston (D) Seattle

FINAL SCORE: 92.38-105.06

SUMMARY:

Despite Handles’ team getting a 28-point game by A.J. Green, it was not enough to offset in-game injuries to Arian Foster and Reggie Wayne.  Handles slips three spots to 6th place while Ant jumps up two to 2nd place.

 

ONLYHERETOBEATHERB vs. ILL WILL’S TEAM

A. Smith-KC (QB) T. Brady-NE

V. Brown-SD (WR) B. Marshall-Chi

M. Colston-NO (WR) A. Johnson-Hou

J. Jones-Bal (WR) M. Williams –TB

K. Moreno-Den (RB) R. Rice-Bal

EMPTY (RB) D. McFadden-Oak

K. Rudolph-Min (TE) V. Davis-SF

M. Prater-Den (K) J. Brown-NYG

Cincinnati (D) Denver

FINAL SCORE: 61.40-74.12

SUMMARY:

This low-scoring matchup is the result of poor decision making from our fantasy play-callers. ONLYHERETOBEATHERB left one running back slot empty and both teams started a player on a bye. In the end, Slick Willie still had enough in his other starters to win.

 

GUTCHECKERZ vs. AJ MILLIEN’S TEAM

R. Tannehill-Mia (QB) C. Kaepernick-SF

L. Fitzgerald-Ari (WR) V. Cruz-NYG

G. Tate-Sea (WR) A. Brown-Pit

H. Nicks-NYG (WR) S. Smith-Car

E. Lacy-GB (RB) L. McCoy-Phi

D. Martin-TB (RB) C. Johnson-Ten

R. Gronkowski-NE (TE) J. Finley-GB

P. Dawson-SF (K) B. Walsh-Min

Kansas City (D) Arizona

FINAL SCORE:  120.26-103.06

SUMMARY:

Chris Johnson’s 21 points and Colin Kaepernick’s 20.76 points were enough to push Bones in the victory lane in his matchup against Moose. Although both teams share an identical 3-4-0 record, Bones will hold the 7th place title due to his slight advantage in cumulative points.

 

DARNELL’S TEAM vs. JOHN’S TEAM

A. Rodgers-GB (QB) M. Stafford-Det

G. Jennings-GB (WR) D. Bryant-Dal

W. Welker-Den (WR) D. Jackson-Phi

M. Wallace-Mia (WR) V. Jackson-TB

F. Gore-SF (RB) T. Richardson-Ind

L. Bell-Pit (RB) Z. Stacy-StL

J. Gresham-Cin (TE) J. Cook-StL

R. Gould-Chi (K) G. Gano-Car

Green Bay (D) Chicago

FINAL SCORE: 132.80-135.88

SUMMARY:

Spider has had a string of bad luck lately and is on a three-game losing streak. In two of those games, including this week’s nail-biter, Spider lost by less than 5 points. Spider will fall yet again in the standings this week, this time dropping into 8th place. Jet, on the other hand, has now won two in a row which helps him jump up two spots into 3rd.

 

THREE PEAT FLIGHT vs. TANNEHILLBILLIES

P. Manning-Den (QB) M. Ryan-Atl

C. Johnson-Det (WR) D. Thomas-Den

T. Hilton (WR) T. Smith-Bal

P. Garcon-Was (RB) H. Douglas-Atl

R. Mathews-SD (RB) B. Powell-NYJ

L. Miller-Mia (RB) A. Peterson-Min

J. Cameron-Cle (TE) G. Olsen-Car

S. Hauschka-Sea (K) J. Tucker-Bal

Minnesota (D) Baltimore

FINAL SCORE: 145.54-113.82

SUMMARY:

The once powerful TANNEHILLbillies is losing his grip of control on the league as he endures his third straight loss, this week to Flight Time. The reigning champion absolutely smothered his competition: 84% of his starters scored in the double digits to become the highest-scoring team of the week.

 

PANAMA vs. MELPH52

E. Manning-NYG (QB) A. Luck-Ind

D. Bowe-KC (WR) E. Decker-Den

R. Randle-NYG (WR) K. Thompkins-NE

C. Givens-StL (WR) D. Avery-KC

M. Forte-Chi (RB) J. Charles-KC

A. Morris-Was (RB) D. Woodhead-SD

T. Gonzalez-Atl (TE) B. Pettigrew-Det

D. Bailey-Dal (K) D. Akers-Det

New England (D) San Diego            

FINAL SCORE: 101.90-139.52

SUMMARY:

Special K and Big Easy, two of the Globetrotters’ most famous showmen, battled it out in week 7. Andrew Luck’s 33 points and Eric Decker’s 29 points helped propel Big Easy to the win.
