DWP! Fantasy Football League 2008 - Week 8

Posted by Brandon |

I am Culture Kills Lion's fantasy football bitch.

Things are getting interesting in the DWP! Fantasy Football League. The top four teams still remain, but there is a big jam up right behind them and people are starting to feel the pressure. Controversy ensues. So on to the the week 8 scores...

Pumpkin Discargers (6-2) - 95 - Drew Brees - 31 points
Honea Express (1-7) - 68 - Eli Manning - 13 points

Pumpkin Discharger's Drew Brees and LaDainian Tomlinson go to London and put up a combined 53 points to give the Honea Express their seventh straight loss. Poor Whit.

Culture Kills Lions (4-4) - 105 - Peyton Manning - 22 points
Down With Pants! (3-5) - 80 - Jason Campbell - 17 points

I actually led going into Monday night, if you can believe it. But Peyton Manning and LenDale White scored 35 points for Culture Kills Lions and dashed my hopes of getting to a respectable 4-4.

Hut Hut Oz (6-2) - 100 - Steve Smith - 23 points
Stop The Clocks (5-3) - 62 - Frank Gore - 15 points

Steve Smith scored 23 and Dallas Clark had 21 to lead Hut Hut Oz over Stop The Clocks in the week's biggest game. Stop The Clocks drops to fourth place while Hut Hut Oz is now tied for second.

Kapgar's Crusaders (8-0) - 99 - Santana Moss - 26 points
CineRobots (2-6) - 59 - Jackson/Slaton - 12 points

Like me, CineRobots knows the pain of an underacheiving Ben Roethlisberger. He's killing us right now. Kapgar keeps rolling despite a lot of players missing on their bye week. 26 points from Santana Moss and another 19 Matt Ryan sure do help.

RW's Cranky Bastards (4-4) - 93 - Kurt Warner - 25 points
sinkintothepacific (4-4) - 67 - Kevin Walter - 19 points

Who, other than RW, knew that Kurt Warner would be such a stud this year? Another 25 point Warner outing leads RW to a rather easy win over sinkintopacific. Both now sit in the jumble at 4-4.

Warped (4-4) - 97 - Brian Westbrook - 32 points
Snackiesonics (1-7) - 38 - Roddy White - 23 points

Brian Westbrook's broken ribs scored 32 points and almost single handedly beat the unset lineup of the Snackiesonics.

Oooo, do we have a doozie on tap for this weekend. Second place is on the line when Hut Hut Oz and Pumpkin Dischargers line it up. Pumpkin Dischargers will be missing a lot of players including LT and Brees while Hut Hut Oz will be without star wide receiver Steve Smith. Should be an interesting battle.

Honea Express is next in line to try to knock off the might Crusaders. Kapgar will still be without Tony Romo, but his replacements - Orton and Ryan - have both played great. He'll also be without his kicker. The Express will be at full strength.

Here's the schedule for week nine...

Kapgar's Crusaders (1) vs. Honea Express (11)
Hut Hut Oz (2) vs. Pumpkin Dischargers (3)
Stop The Clocks (4) vs. DOWN WITH PANTS! (9)
Culture Kills Lions (5) vs. Warped (7)
RW's Cranky Bastards (6) vs. Snackiesonics (12)
sinkintothepacific (8) vs. CineRobots (10)

Bye teams this week: Carolina, San Diego, New Orleans and San Francisco.

Fear not, all my roster holes are stopgapped.

And can someone tell me how it is that nobody picked up Matt Ryan from the FA list? He's been sitting out there all this time. Just like Orton before I picked him up a couple weeks ago. Why can't I find good running backs out there like that?
