Team TOPH's Fantasy Update - Week 2
Talk about a rebound week. Pun slightly intended as I led the league in Rebounds this week with 310, a 49 point increase from last week. After the 0-7-1 start, my team came back with a vengeance and scored a 7-1 win over Guatemalan Fruit, a team that was previously 4-4. The big improvement was that Russell Westbrook had a much better week this week, improving upon all of his stats other than Steals and Free Throw Percentage. Monta Ellis also had a huge week, and picking up Ryan Anderson was great. He chipped in 29 Rebounds and 47 Points in just three games. Eric Gordon is killing me though, as he's out 2-3 weeks with this knee injury. Only having two guys who can play the Shooting Guard is a major issue.
The next two weeks for me are huge, as I play the 10-5-1 Maumee Panthers, and then the regular season Battle of the Blog is the following week. I've got to continue the upward trend and try to capitalize on this momentum to get me back into the playoff picture. Big time players make big time plays in big time situations. Let's get it Team TOPH.
By the way, any suggestions on a new Shooting Guard to pick up? All will be appreciated.
