This week I played the Vein Thrashers. I held a tenuous 9-point lead heading into Monday night's game between New Orleans and San Francisco. I had Frank Gore and Joe Nedney for the the 49ers and he had Drew Brees (NO) and Vernon Davis (SF). I wasn't comfortable since Brees can put up huge fantasy numbers and the 49ers defense got shredded by the Seahawks the week before. I was not hopeful. Fortunately for me, Brees had an off night for him, which means less than 300 yards passing and two touchdowns. Fortunately, Frank Gore was a stud! he totaled 168 yards and 2 touchdowns. I won the game 99-87.
Next week, I'm up against Tom Brady. He had a bad week this week, but his history is to have monster games after bad ones. The Pats are also playing Buffalo. Not a good match up for me.
