NFL Week 7 2020 Round Up

Week 7

And then there was one… by the end of week 7 we were left with just one undefeated team, the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Titans’ Gostkowski missed a last ditch game tying field goal and couldn’t prevent the Steelers moving to 6-0.

The Falcons deserve another shout out for yet another laughable finish, this time Gurley flopping down over the line when trying ‘not’ to score! He goes in to the end zone and lets the Lions get the ball back and what followed is standard for all ATL fans by now – another defeat from the jaws of victory.

Same shit, different game!

Washington scalped the Cowboys and the Chiefs destroyed the Broncos despite not playing that well but the Bears and, obviously, the Jets lost. 

More major injuries this week as 2020 continues its cruel cull. Odell Beckham and Dede Westbrook tore ACLs and Landon Collins heads to IR requiring Achilles surgery.  Kenyan Drake and Jeff Wilson suffered high ankle sprains and you have to feel particularly bad for Wilson given the breakout game he was having.

Antonio Brown is now officially a Buccaneer and another pro-bowl WR is back around the NFL, Dez Bryant was signed to  the Ravens’ practice squad. I think everyone will be getting the popcorn ready for the return of AB, let’s hope it’s his on field antics we get to enjoy rather than the off-field circus!

Week 7 Bet Results

2-3 this week but it was all over before we got started, Tony jinxing it all by making a (losing) Thursday night pick. Rule number 1 – leave out the early game!

Rob maintains his lead at the top, beating Tom to go 6-1. We very nearly had our first 200-burger with Generic-Fantasy-Name winning with 199.12! So close. Mark lost again and remains rooted to the foot of the table but Tony continues his winning streak and finds himself with a winning record.

NFL Week 6 2020 Round Up

We’ve got a free to enter competition for you this week, so make sure to read to the bottom for your chance to win some signed collectables!

Week 6 NFL Results

In a week where you rush for over 150 yards, you’d expect to be the top rusher but sorry Clyde, sorry Kenyan, Derrick Henry says hello. With a staggering 212 yards on the ground and another 52 receiving, Henry helped the Titans to remain unbeaten. The Brady-led Tampa Bay dismantled the cheese-heads leaving just 3 unbeaten teams; the Seahawks, the Steelers and of course Henry’s Titans, all at 5-0.

On to our teams then. Relying on their formidable defence, the Bears grind it out again to move to a tasty 5-1. I might just start copying and pasting this next sentence for Tom and Marks boys: “Washington and the Jets both lost again“. The Jets failed to register even a point this week against Tony’s Dolphins but we did get our first glimpse of Tua. Rob’s team, the Chiefs, complete the Far From Lombardi mini-round up, they got the win against the Bills, joining the Bears at 5-1. Mahomes was breaking records again, becoming the fastest to 90 career passing touchdowns (37 games), beating Dan Marino’s previous record of 90 in 40 games.

Week 6 Fantasy Football Results

We now have a clear leader in the listener league as Rob’s Crown-Takers take top spot with a victory over the struggling Generic-Fantasy-Name. Rob capitalised on a slip up by Mahomes-Under-The-Hammer who was beat out by mikedixon22patriots. Speaking of hammers, Mark’s prejudiciously monikered Skins took their weekly hammering, this week it was from yours truly but wins for both TonyFarFromLombardi and Tom’s A-Bad-Gase-of-Mono complete a solid week for the Far From Lombardi team.

NFL Week 5 2020 Round Up

Week 5 NFL Results

As one quarterback made his unlikely return in week 5 another made an unfortunate exit. I can’t think there was any NFL fan that wasn’t delighted to see the return of Washington’s Alex Smith. After an injury that wasn’t just career-threatening but potentially life-threatening, to see him suit up and get out there was inspirational and I hope it serves as motivation for Dak during his own recovery. I can’t have been the only one that was wincing every time Aaron Donald was hunting Smith down though? Usually, I’m wishing him to smash most of the QBs there! Donald wasn’t bothered though, the professional in him had him jumping on his back like a tiger bringing down his prey. Todd Gurley was the man this week, rushing for 121 yards and a touchdown but his heroics couldn’t help the ATL to their first win. A hat-trick of receiving touchdowns and one on the ground for the Pittsburgh rookie Chase Claypool sent everyone into a fantasy-football-waiver-wire scramble this week (except those of us who already own him but left him and his 42 points on their bench…)

Let’s have a look at how the Far From Lombardi teams did this week then. Da Bears got week 5 off to a winning start, with a close one against Brady and the Buccs and the Miami Dolphins repaid Tony for his faith in them by battering the fading 49ers into submission. And that’s it, that’s where the wins end for the Far From Lombardi teams in week 5. The dumpster fire that is the New York Jets continues to burn hotter than the sun as they released star running back Lev Bell and weighed in with their customary weekly loss. Alex Smith aside, the Washington Football Team provided no other inspiration, losing again. The result of the week though has to be the Raiders pillaging the Chiefs for the win, Las Vegas coming out on top in a 72 point score-fest.

Week 5 Bet Results

Yet another 3-2 week for bet of the week and whilst my losing streak stretches to 3, Rob and Tony march on and Tom has now caught up to the fleet after being adrift since the start.

The Tipster Table

It seems that I am as bad at maths as I am at betting, updating the table wrong up to now! The accurate profit / loss league table based on our selections is now below.

I would like to remind Rob that 4-1 is a misleading stat, just as he keeps reminding me how shit the 4-1 Bears are when compared to his 4-1 Chiefs. I wonder which one Rob is most like? Tom finally gets himself into contention but he’s not off the bottom of the table yet…

Week 5 Fantasy Football Results

Mark’s woes continue as he falls to yet another defeat and he is still on course for the wooden spoon, I don’t think I’ve ever seen someone go a full season in fantasy football without winning a game… Don’t worry Mark, you know I’ve jinxed myself because we play in week 6!

Mahomes-Under-The-Hammer continues to blaze ahead with another 190+ point week, but Rob is keeping on the pressure with another win and they both now lead at 4-1.

NFL Week 4 2020 Round Up

Week 4 NFL Results

Joe Mixon finally showed what he’s capable of, rushing for 151 yards and scoring 2 touchdowns this week and helping both the Bengals and rookie quarterback Joe Burrow to their first win in the process. In this game, Joe Burrow becomes the first rookie in NFL history to throw for 300+ yards in three straight games.  Dalvin Cook was at it as well, posting another whopping 130 rushing yards and 2 more touchdowns to get the Vikings to their first win of the season also.  A special shout out to George Kittle as he marked his return to action with a stellar performance, yet even he could not help the 49ers as they succumbed to the Eagles, who recorded their first win.

The big injury news this week concerns Austin Ekeler (hamstring, 4-6 weeks) and Nick Chubb (MCL, ‘several weeks’). The Browns should be able to cover Chubb’s absence with the irrepressible Kareem Hunt but the Chargers will find it more difficult to replace Ekeler’s production. A huge chance for the rookie Kelley to expand on his early season promise.
The Jets and Giants both remain on ZERO wins, which is no surprise, but whilst the Jets fans are still clamouring for the head of Gase, the Texans fans were dealing with their own beheading as Bill O’Brien was given the chop after falling to yet another defeat.
The other member of the 0-4 club are the Atlanta Falcons and they were brushed aside by the Adams-less Packers. I think I could play in this Packers offence with Rodgers slinging the ball, the man just does not miss. This game was such an efficient display from them overall, great defence in the form of Za’Darius Smith and Tight End Tonyan weighed in with 3 touchdowns from just 6 targets.

We’ve mentioned Tom’s hapless Jets already, no better was my Bears, falling to the Colts with a whimper. It was one of the most boring games I’ve ever watched, a battle between Old Man Rivers and Nick Foles just felt like I was being punished for past life crimes.  Tony’s Dolphins couldn’t stop the Seahawks from marching to 4-0 and Marks Football Team (when are they sorting this name out?) were powerless to stop the Ravens from bouncing back from their previous loss, Lamar Jackson running for a career-long 50 yard touchdown in this one. The Patriots couldn’t stop Rob’s Chiefs so at least one of us has something to be happy about this week, NFL-wise at least! 

Week 4 Bet Results

The only positive I can take from this week is that I wasn’t the only clown to make selections. A 3-2 week and we’ll move quickly on to the next one.

Week 4 Fantasy Football Results

We finally have one of the listeners leading the pack in the race for a free team jersey! Mahomes-Under-The-Hammer was about half-a-point short of throwing up a 200-burger when beating Rob’s Crown-Takers this week. All of the listeners smashed it this week though, winning all of their match ups, Lamar-MVP scoring more than double Tony’s points and Generic-Fantasy-Name making Mark’s Skins suffer at the bottom, now at 0-4. Tom got crushed in the only all Far From Lombardi match up, by yours truly. Unlucky Tom.

NFL Week 3 2020 Round Up

Week 3 NFL Results

Week 3 belongs to Pat Mahomes and Rob’s beloved Chiefs, as they proved their credentials for going ‘back-to-back’ (as if there were still any doubters out there). Going into Baltimore and beating them by 14, Mahomes hit the weeks highest passer rating (133.5) and in doing so he became the fastest player in history to 10,000 passing yards. Staggering. It all makes his contract look like a bargain buy. Just think Chiefs Kingdom, you could’ve had Mitch…

Speaking of Mitch, he was finally benched for Foles this week and the Bears were at it again… Or should that be “the Falcons at it again”? Either way, Foles led them to another unlikely comeback, becoming the first team in NFL history to win 2 games in the same season when down by at least 16 points in the 4th quarter. Another addition to the NFL injury list, the Bears’ Tarik Cohen, who will be out long term with a torn ACL.

Let’s have a look at how the other Far From Lombardi teams got on in week 3. It all got underway with a very solid win for Tony’s Dolphins smashing the Jags in Duval County, and winning him $250 from a random Twitter stranger in the process. Wide receiver Dontrelle Inman scored twice for Mark’s “Football Team” but it wasn’t enough to help them to victory as they lost to the Browns. Last and most definitely least, with both Darnold and Jones recording the worst passer ratings in week 3, Tom’s Jets and the Barkley-less Giants lost by a combined score of 72-16. Oh dear.

A special shout out to the Vikings; having the player with the most rushing yards (Cook, 181) and most receiving yards (Jefferson, 175) whilst still managing to lose the game. Great work, keep it up Vikings!

Week 3 Bet Results

It is with lashings of embarrassment that I report the week 3 bet results. The lament of gamblers throughout the ages, the one that let us down… This week we went 4-1 and I am the one that let us down. My love for Vic Fangio clashed with my hatred for the Buccs’ Bandwagon, letting my heart rule the head cost us over a grand. Sound. I’m now as popular as the Chargers team doctor in Tyrod’s house.

Week 3 Fantasy Football Results

Rob and Tom are holding their own at the top, both moving to 3-0. The listeners make up the middle of the pack as they all go in search of that free jersey, whilst the rest of Far From Lombardi make up the bottom 3.
Incredible scoring this week from The Hotboyz, racking up 192 points, which is the highest weekly total we’ve had so far. Skins (isn’t this banned now Mark?) put up great numbers again only to lose again! Don’t worry Mark, you’ll soon be playing me… not only did I mess the Far from Lombardi acca up this week, but I also scored the lowest in the fantasy league… what a week.
