With Jalen Hurts out this week, I needed somebody else to step up in my two playoff teams. My South Beach team didn’t have anyone step up, and I lost. But my home league had 3 guys step up to lead my 10-5 team over the best team in the league at 13-2. The three guys were Alvin Kamara (19 points), Jaylen Waddle (25 points), and Brett Maher. But it was Maher who had the most points, with 30, from 4 FG’s and 4 PAT’s. So Maher gets his second Fantasy Player of the Week award this week.
This league has a different scoring system for kickers. To give you an example, my opponent started Nick Folk, who only missed 2 PAT’s, finishing with -6 points on the day. This system penalizes misses heavily, even as it rewards successes more.
Mind you, I haven’t officially won this game yet, but I feel pretty good about my chances. He still has Tom Brady and Keenan Allen going, but he needs 74 points from them. I feel pretty confident.
