It was a slow week at the Game On Wisconsin fantasy football league. Nobody topped 200 points, or was even close. But it evened out a bit as only one team fell short of 100… cough cough… Brendan.
Still there was plenty of intrigue during crossover week. The Lambeau division went undefeated against the Lombardi division, settling the Curly Lambeau vs Vince Lombardi debate for good.
Isaac Greig (Complicated Fellas) VS Brendan Dzwierzynski (Final Dumpers)
My Complicated Fellas had a great week of practice and finally rebounded after dropping two straight. Getting Cook back was huge and Mixon finally justified that big contract, and draft slot. Let’s not gloss over the fact that this team – my team – has the least amount of ‘point for’ and least amount of ‘points against’, and is 4-2.
Meanwhile, Brendan’s Final Dumpers sit on the bottom of the Lombardi division, having lost back-to-back games. Starting Cobb and Jamaal didn’t help but Brendan didn’t have much choice.
Andrew Mertins (Winston’s Crab Legs) VS Greg Williams (Hide and Zeke)
Andrew is on a ROLL. He’s toppled division leaders in back-to-back weeks and sits alone at the top of the league with a 5-1 record. Even with an off week from Herbert, Winston’s Crab Legs still managed to record the third highest total.
Last week, Greg generated what will likely go down as the highest point total on the year but he took a step back. ‘Tae’ had a quiet day by his standards, while Mike Williams was shut down for the second time in three weeks.
Brennen Rupp (Bad Juju) VS Dan Kotnik (Bishop Sycamore All-Stars)
Brennen has had a Packers-esque start to the season. He’s put together a string of solid showings en route to 4-0-1 record – all following a massive dud in week 1. Considering Brennen is ahead of me in the Lambeau division, I dont wish him luck going forward.
This week against Bad Juju, the Bishop Sycamore All-Stars ran into their toughest competition since IMG Academy. They recorded their first loss since climbing to a 3-2 record, even with their 6 double-digit performances on the week.
Ryan Bowman (Canadian Bacon) VS Matt Bove (Go Balls Deep)
I dragged Ryan through the dirt last week and he answered in a big way, recording his highest total on the season. Basically everybody on his roster played well – especially Fournette with his 2 TD, 6 catch performance.
Matt Bove wasn’t able to top Canadian Bacon, even with a solid showing. That’s been the theme this year for the squad that always Goes Balls Deep. They lead the league in ‘points for’ and are second in ‘points against’.
Daire Carragher (Marcedes Lewis and the News) VS Sanjay Gowdar-Murthy (Token Brown Guy)
Since he’s probably out of the playoff hunt already, I feel comfortable congratulating Daire on his first win of the season. Daire was carried by a big 2 TD performance from CeeDee Lamb
Sanjay, our Token Brown Guy, posted a solid showing but lost a close one to Daire. If he had started an active DST, the result would likely be different. Let’s all learn from Sanjay’s horrible, world-ending mistake.

Move of the Week
It didn’t vault him to a win but Dan Kotnik not only added but started Khalil Herbert following the injury to Damien Williams. Herbert added a spark to the Bears’ offense on Sunday that was obvious to everybody reading this article.
Herbert flashed early shades of David Montgomery and will be a solid RB2 until Montgomery returns.
