So we’re halfway through the college football season, one-third of the way through the NFL’s schedule, and high school football will be approaching playoff time in a few weeks. But the real question is, how is your fantasy football team doing? Well, we’ll come back to that.
If you’re a Louisville or Kentucky football fan, you’ve had better and brighter Septembers and Octobers. We all knew it might be a rough year for the Commonwealth, but maybe not this rough. The other state schools aren’t fairing much better. Western Kentucky has picked up some big wins this year, but other than that we don’t have much to get excited about.
In terms of the NFL, it’s been interesting to see parity back in the game. The Colts minus Manning are getting drummed, while the 49ers, Lions, Bengals, and Bills are creeping toward the top of their divisions. The Eagles, Jets, Chargers, and Falcons have struggled. Then teams not used to the cellar are planted there like the Vikings, Jaguars, and Broncos. The Dolphins and Rams join the Colts as the only winless teams.
All signs point to the Pats and Packers. Of course the Steelers slow start could be just that. Who would count them out? Also, the Saints are playing well for the most part.
In the world of fantasy football, it’s been about Brady to Welker, Rodgers and Brees, Megatron, Fred Jackson, Matt Forte, Cam Newton, Jimmy Graham, and Arian Foster back with a vengeance. Big flops for many of the top draft picks are players like Vick, Chris Johnson, Peyton Manning, Phillip Rivers, and a whole host of other running backs and receivers. Hopefully you have a few of the players listed above, and not many of the players I just mentioned.
Even if you’re a bottom dweller, there’s always hope on the waiver wire. After all, you could have picked up Demarco Murray this week.
Whatever the case, it’s great to be in the middle of football season, and the beautiful fall weather.
