Quote of the day
"It's kind of mind blowing. I had my mom, my aunt, and my two cousins in the stands. The first ball went to my mom, the second ball went to my aunt and the next thing you knew everybody had a ball.” -- Washington CB DeAngelo Hall, who tied a NFL record with four interceptions against Jay Cutler
I was away from home (and TV) for most of the day on Sunday, and I haven’t had much chance to see or read about yesterday’s NFL highlights. My RIFC team seemed to do quite well on auto-pilot, however. In this league’s scoring system, a team that generates 140 or more points is generally having a strong week. My team scored 196! And sometimes it’s better to be lucky than smart, as Lee Evans (105 yds, 3TDs) would typically have been on my bench vs. Baltimore. I had to start him this week because all of my other receiving options were on bye. He ended up with more fantasy points this week than he had generated through the first six weeks combined. Go figure.
I added Fanduel to the list of games covered in the sortable Hoops stats. FanDuel.com offers daily contests in all major sports, including hoops. If you have not yet registered, please click on the linked banner in the “Sponsor of the day” area above. In addition to their standard head-to-head daily contests, they are offering a promotional contest for this Wednesday night’s NBA games (Oct. 27) - $10 entry fee, first prize is $1000, prizes for the top 20. There are currently 86 entries in this contest. For $10, you might want to take a flier!
By the way, if you do enter the special Wednesday contest at FanDuel, some of the player prices in the sortable stats will be slightly off, as those prices were set and locked-in several days ago. The prices in the sortable stats reflect the player prices for the current day’s standard contests (in this case, Oct. 26).
