Magill FFL: Three Undefeateds Left

9/23/14

It’s week three and the Magill Report fantasy football league has three undefeated teams left: Team Yesmail, Fluent’s Fluent in Kicking @ss and the FreshAddress @men.
 
FreshAddress—whose team is managed by a guy who might just be getting a little less pissed at me for refusing to run a live draft—put up the most points this week, beating the Net Atlantic Storm 191.7 to 151.34.
 
FreshAddress’s score was the second highest of the season so far. The @men have the highest point total in the league, averaging 171.27 points per game.
 
It’s early yet, but it sure looks like we may have a new juggernaut this year.
 
Net Atlantic’s record is 1-2.
 
Fluent in Kicking @ss beat Living Social’s LivingSocialites 131.5 to 100.26
 
Fluent benefited from a strong outing by Indianapolis quarterback Andrew Luck who scored 57.3 fantasy points, the most in the league.
 
Living Social’s record dropped to 1-2.
 
Yesmail scored this week’s biggest blowout, beating eDataSource’s End-zone Espionage 129.9 to 61.04. What happened to eDataSource? Why, they started two Buffalo Bills. That’s what happened.
 
To be honest, I spoke with eDataSource’s team manager, Jim Ducharme, over the phone last week and he told me of his plans to pick up the Bills’ defense. 
 
Did I warn him off of ever starting any players from my favorite team? Nope. I said something along the lines of: “Well, they’re a pretty ball-hungry defense. They’re playing at home and that stadium is going to be crazy this week so they might be worth picking up.”
 
Unfortunately for Jim, I had consumed a combination of LSD, Ecstasy, Cristal Meth and a quart of vodka before the call.
 
Note to anyone who asks me for fantasy football advice: Your opening question should always be: “Are you sober?”
 
Meanwhile, Message Systems MS Destroyers picked up their first win this week, beating last year’s champ Epsilon’s Harmony Army 164.32 to 154.32.
 
After romping through the league last year, Epsilon is winless this season. 
 
As is so often the case in fantasy football, Epsilon just happened to draw the wrong opponent this week. They put up enough points to have beaten 11 other teams, just not enough to beat Message Systems.
 
Meanwhile, Responsys’s I have no Responsys finally found a Responsys, picking up its first win against the TowerData Validators 153.02 to 87.88.
 
The loss was TowerData’s second. Both teams are 1-2.
 
Demandware also picked up its first win, beating Return Path’s RP SPAM ASSASSINS 152.8 to 105.
 
Both teams are 1-2.
 
PL Marketing’s Orchard Lake United picked up their second win this week, beating Omeda’s Oh My Omeda 125.86 to 120.48.
 
Both teams are 2-1.
