My QB this year is Aaron Rodgers. Yes, I threw up in my mouth a little when I picked him. But hey, fresh off an MVP season, right?
He gives me a grand total of 1.2 points, while my opponent gets Stafford’s 24+.
But, because I’m pretty damn good at Fantasy, I still have a shot. The only one with a player going Monday night is me, and it’s Darren Waller. But I need him to go off – a ton of yards and at least one TD.
And he does it! Carr targets him like 20 times, and he gets over 100 yards receiving. And late in the game, he finally gets the TD!
I’m now down by 2 points. One more decent reception and I win!
And I wait … and wait … and wait … and it never comes. But the game is still in the balance, so the Raiders will still be throwing. Oh no! They’re down to the half-yard-line for the winning TD! No throws!
BUT WAIT! A false start penalty moves them back! Waller’s in play! Carr throws an INT.
BUT WAIT! The game’s going to overtime! The guy Carr targeted 20 times is surely getting one throw in OT! Vic-to-ry!!
Carr throws the ball all over the place in OT. And not once to Waller.
To be clear, this loss is on Rodgers. Where in the hell did that performance come from?
He’s certainly likely to get right against the Lions’ defense this week. If he doesn’t, my fantasy season is screwed immediately.
