Mad King – The fantasy failures of Week 14
[MUSIC] Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Minute is brought to you by the Gillette Fusion ProGlide, now with FlexBall technology. It’s shaving rebuilt. I am furious, I am steaming, I’m hot as fish grease. At two guys, Drew Brees and Peyton Manning. And I’m hot at them because they both failed, but they both failed for different reasons. Let’s start with you, Payton. Mr. Smartypants. Mr. doctorate degree in the art of how to play quarterback. What happened? We’re in the first round of fantasy playoffs. You decided to get cute. Only 20 pass attempts against the Bills. Only 14 completions. What is my fantasy football team supposed to do with that? And to compound it, you didn’t even throw for 200 yards and you decided to throw low touchdowns and toss in two interceptions. Are you kidding me? Oh I know you’re happy mister large head because your Denver Broncos won. But what about all of the fantasy football owners in America who lost their playoff game because you didn’t come through. Talk about not being clutch. Now over to you mister Brees you tried but listen effort isn’t enough. We need production. We drafted you in the first round because you the man. You hadn’t been the man this year. But we thought listen. They failed at home for three consecutive games. No way in the world they lose four in a row. How did you guys lose? You were pathetic, you were awful and you know why that matters to us? Cuz we have you as our fantasy football quarterback. 49 attempts, okay I give you credit, you tried but out of 49 attempts you couldn’t even get 250 yards passing? You couldn’t go for more than one touchdown? And you negated that by throwing an interception, and oh, to really compound a double-negative, to really make an error another error, you only completed three passes Jimmy Graham. So even if we didn’t have you, Drew Brees, and we had the great Jimmy Graham, you were the reason he failed us as well. So I just wanted you to know, Drew Brees, and I wanted you to know, Peyton Manning, too, that the fantasy football world is mad at you.
