TMX week 2 review

TMX week 2 review is here.

There were big name injuries this week and this seems to be the trend for this year, so trades and the waiver wire should be heating up. Equalizers and BeachBums made a trade with the BeachBums getting Mr everything Dion Lewis, Martellius Bennett and Giants d for Pats d, Injured Julius Thomas and Rashad Jennings. TMX loves the action and also loves a team owner's reaction " never trust a beach weasel and a smile".

Lets get to the review.  This weeks winner was Charlie's Angels ( due to budget cuts at Drunknothings TMX lost its stats guy BUT we believe this is their first winning week!) Angels put up 141pts Brady dropped 44 and the Broncos WR corp of Demaryius and Sanders totaled 44 as well! Tight end Allen put up a goose egg but it didn't matter as Card D put up 20 plus!! A solid week which moved the Angels into serious contention at the top! Second with 137 was Skza's Squad. Skza's was led by Edelman ( NINETEEN TARGETS), hotshot rookie Amari Cooper and the J-E-T-S D. Forte  and Shady had off weeks and Blount got Belichicked into a 0 or Skza would have had his first win of the season, either way they are in the hunt. Third place this week is DMC with 128. DMC is riding the big arm of Big Ben who put up 41 and stud ODB put up his first big game of the year. DMC  has some work to do to get to the top but he also has a bench mob of Stevie Johnson ( 1st in the  league in yards after the catch) and whats my name JAMESJONES. All he does is catch TDs. 4th this place was Jaybirds with 121. Jaybirds is the place to go for all your wide receiver needs!! This week the dynamic duo of Julio and Antonio "Wha's that" Brown put up 25 and 37 respectively. His wr's on the bench fitzy and marshall had 38 and 27!! Jaybird equals WR U. Make him an offer before we have Robfrey 2.0 on our hands!! 5th place with 114 was Slippery Wizards. Wizards getting zero from the big name rbs is doing it with garbage time Mathews TDs, waiver pickup Moncrief and Mr 25pts Matty Ryan. Gonna be a long season if that is to continue!!

6th place with 106 was Black Dynamite. Black Dynamite is riding the Rodgers-Cobb-Crosby (14pt kicker) so far that has kept them afloat and now they get best rb in football back ( BELL) so they should be making their way further up the top!! 7th place this week was Creepshots with 104. The Stafford-Mega combo showed some life but the team is starting to be Gronk and the rest of the guys. Browns d putting 34pts up on the bench didn't help "the rest of the guys". 8th place with 101 was Beach Bums. Hill putting up 0 put them in a hole and Landry and Charles were the only guys touching the 20s this week. Mr Everything Dion Lewis may have to be factored into the lineup and Arian Foster is due back soon so BeachBums are not in a bad spot. 9th place this week with 89 was Supah P's. Supah was led by Russy Wilson , Eagles D, and Supah P fav T- Williams. Lacy and Roddy putting up a 0 hurt the squad this week but Freeman and Gio getting more run should help the Supahs or as one owner called them " the ralph tresvants " -( man like me, man with sensitivity).

 Last place this week was Equalizers with 85. Pats d and kicker Tucker led the team. You read that right. Kicker 15 and d 24. How long are Equalizers going to wait for Luck to get out of it is the question?  Well, as we ponder that lets make some calls.

 First up from the last place team we are calling the always hyped up Steve Smith Sr who was on the Equalizers bench this week putting up 25 which is more that any of his starters. Hey Steve whats good its TMX " OH MY MAN TMX WHATS GOING DOWN, THIS IS MY LAST YEAR GLAD YOU CALLED, I HAD A GREAT WEEK 150YDS 10 CATCHES WE WON THIS SHIT RIGHT?" Uhhhm not quite Steve you guys came in last and worse you weren't even in the lineup! " YOU KIDDING ME? REMEMBER WHEN I SAID THERE WOULD BE BLOOD AND GUTS SO WEAR YOUR GOGGLES WHEN THE PANTHERS LET ME GO? WELL TELL WHOEVER ISNT STARTING ME HE BETTER HAVE HIS GOGGLES ON! SHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET. SITTING STEVE SMITH SENIOR" Love the intensity ( all caps) Steve and we will pass the message along! You'll be missed next year if your looking for work TMX is hiring. " HA GOOD ONE TMX HOPE YOU CALL ME BACK WHEN I PUT UP ANOTHER MONSTER WEEK. STEVE SMITH SR. DONT YOU FORGET IT OR I'LL BUST YO LIP" Ha old Steve Smith always a great call.

Let's call Tom Brady from the winning team. Hey Tom its TMX great start to the season. " Oh TMX thanks man, just doing everything I can to help the team win, I mean all the players are playing great I'm just doing my part." Always humble which ironically is the opposite of your owner who threw it in the whole leagues face and may or may not have flew a plane over TMX headquarters telling everyone you were the 90th pick in the draft? " oh TMX I'm sure many great players went ahead of me, I'm just fortunate to have great teammates and coaches who put me in position to win ( loud Portuguese yelling in the backround) Tom Tom everything ok? " don't you call my husband or this house I remember you guys sneaking around when I was with Leonardo and then calling me a homewrecker when me and Tommy got together LEAVE US ALONE" Uhmm this Gisele? This is TMX  not that silly fake reporting agency. We are a legitimate fantasy football reporting site. "  huh? oh ?? uhhm let me give Tom back the phone. Hey guys sorry bout that think she thought you were someone else. Ha women. Anyway coach got us preparing for next week so I have to cut this call short. Thanks again TMX. " Thank you Tom good luck the rest of the way.

The season is young and there is plenty of football to be played but with injuries and players having slow starts some teams may not want to hang on too long and have a huge hole to climb out of. Heres a look at the standings as we head to week 3

1. Jaybirds
2. Charlies Angels 18
3. Black Dynamite 20
4. Skza's Squad     27
5. Creepshots        62
6. Slippery Wizards 64
7. Beach Bums       71
8. DMC                  76
9. Equalizers          86
10 Supah P's          90

          As is normal there are tight races at the top and the bottom but it can all change with one good week. Lets hope the injury bug slows down and everyone stars start to play like it!! Trades and waiver wire adds are your friends. TMX out.
