DMR Fantasy Football League Power Rankings: Week 11

It’s Week 11 and the playoffs are almost here. In the winners bracket, you can win some money. In the losers bracket, you get the punishment. You can cut the tension with a knife right now as teams are starting to scramble to get into that winners bracket. But who will make it?

Gifs are back for these rankings FTW.

1. Can’t Lose Again – DG

Remember when I said that when I write the rankings, I win? Well, I won with a Monday night miracle. LTS had Cam Newton while I had the Panthers D and Devin Funchess. It all came down to the 4th quarter. I was up .1 with a few minutes left. Cam Newton drops back., If he throws to anyone else but Funchess, Mike wins. Well, not only did Newton throw to Funchess, it actually turned into a TD. Game, set, match for DG. Let the momentum keep rolling!

2. Carton’s Scalpers – Luke from Ain’t No Daisy

Carton actually won 2 games in a row! The pattern is broken *for now*. Carton keeps putting up the points and just last night, he already has 49.6 points thanks to Antonio Brown and Delanie Walker. Things are looking up for the Daily Mix Report’s Accountant.

3JakePaul Team 10 – Eric The TV Watcher

From 7th to 3rd in the matter of one week. It’s amazing what Eric can do if he actually tries. He’s one of the best team’s in the league, but he’s allergic to checking his lineup certain weeks. Some would say he deserves to lose the league. Others would say he does have 6 wins so there’s really nothing we can do. My hands are tied, folks. Let’s see if he plays hard again this week.

4. The Moon’s DowntownBonanza – Nick from Ain’t No Daisy

Still alive but barely breathing. Nick and Mike are in a battle for this coveted last playoff spot and as of now, Nick holds the important tie breaker and he controls his own destiny. Ruh roh, raggy. This should be interesting.

5. Golden Tate Warriors – LordTreeSap

Heartbreak city for LordTreeSap. One play away from 6-4 and Cam threw to the wrong guy at the wrong time. It kind of reminds me of the time where Mike had a chance to take the lead in our flag football game a few years ago. Mike was wide open. He could’ve walked in for the game winning touchdown. But, he developed stone hands and dropped it. That’s baseball, Suzyn. Chin up, Mike!

6. Ya Moms Sunday Sauce is Ragu – Tommy G

What a bad week for Italy. They miss the World Cup and the Sunday Sauce was spoiled last week as TG is on the outside looking in. But would you look at that. Guess who Tommy plays? The Moon’s Downtown Bonanza. This is officially a must-win for the Sauce.

7. XO Ball Life – Producer Jim

Just when you though Producer Jim was on the up and up, he puts up a disastrous week with 65 points. He’s back to his usual spot of 7th in the power rankings and I can’t wait to hear the complaints. So I’ll save you the time Jim. Win and your back in the hunt. Lose and you won’t move from this spot. Rise to the occasion, Nittany Lion.

8. Boston TE Party – Sisi

I’m not a math guy, but I think Sisi is very close to being eliminated from qualifying for the playoffs. Don’t quote me on that. However, he can play spoiler and that’s almost just as fun. Notice how I said Almost. Watch Sisi make the playoffs now and shove this power ranking down my throat.

 

DMR Fantasy Football League Power Rankings: Week 10

After a brief hiatus from the Power Rankings thanks to vacation and Stranger Things, I am back. Some of the league member(s) started “chirping” about my hiatus and how I put gifs in and never change up the rankings. Well, if you know how to blog and have a .500 record, you can do the rankings your way but until then, you wait patiently. More importantly, I have a newsflash: This is a CLOSE race.

It’s actually one of the closer races I’ve been apart of in fantasy. 7 teams have a legitimate shot at the playoffs (Sorry Sisi). 4 games left before the playoffs. 4 spots total. Let the games begin.

1. Can’t Lose Again – DG

From 6-0 to 6-3 in the blink of an eye. Bad weeks and horrible managing by me cost me those 3 games. Credit to the guys that played me though. They had to win to gain ground and that’s exactly what they did. Also, I’m 6-0 when I wrote power rankings. 0-3 when I didn’t post them. You do the math. Need a win desperately or this league will be a shitshow.

2. Carton’s Scalpers – Luke from Ain’t No Daisy

Ticket sales are booming for Carton’s Scalpers. As the leading scorer of the league, Luke has earned his 2nd place spot. However, have you seen this man’s schedule? This is how Luke is 5-4: W, L, W, L, W, L, W, L, W. Amazing. You could say he’s inconsistent, but then again, you could say he’s consistent because he does the same thing all season. The more you know.

3. Golden Tate Warriors – LordTreeSap

Michaellllllll no. Big Mike has put together a nice stretch of games, winning 3 out of the last 4. HUGE division game against yours truly this week. Will he step up to the plate or choke like Mike Francesa with a cough drop?

4. The Moon’s DowntownBonanza – Nick from Ain’t No Daisy

I swear this is the most inconsistent league ever. Nick is on a roller coaster ride. Starts off 3-1. Then he loses 3 straight to go to 3-4. Now, he’s rattled off two monster wins in a row to get him back in the mix. With Sisi on the schedule, this team might be going uptown after Monday night.

5. XO Ball Life – Producer Jim

Nothing, and I mean NOTHING, would make me happier to put this man in last place and you can definitely make the argument he can be in 7th. However, the “what have you done for me recently” trend puts Jimbob at 5th despite having 4 wins. He’s won 4 out of his last 5. From the outhouse to the penthou…not at the penthouse yet my friend, but definitely an admirable turn around from the beginning.

6. Ya Moms Sunday Sauce is Ragu – Tommy G

Another “what have you done for me recently” guy. Despite a hiccup last week, Tom has won 3 out of the last 5 to put himself in the contention. Plus, he almost beat Enrique by 100 points 2 weeks ago so if this team gets hot, watch out.

7. JakePaul Team 10 – Eric The TV Watcher

Sorry Enrique, but this is a big fall from grace. Yes, you have 5 wins and that’s more than the two people in front of you, but losing 4 out of 6 and only scoring over 100 points once during that stretch is why you are towards the bottom. Fantasy is brutal, but it also can be your friend. Plus, you still are in the playoffs if the season ended today. You just need a victory badly.

8. Boston TE Party – Sisi

You beat me so that’s something to be proud of this year.

DMR Fantasy Football League Power Rankings: Week 7

Another day, another dollar. Here’s where the league stands.

We’re just about halfway through the year. There’s a favorite, a bottom feeder, and a lot of parity in the middle. This week, it’s the 10 word rankings. Each team will be described in 10 words (more or less. It’s been awhile since I’ve done math). Enjoy the rankings.

1. Can’t Lose Again – DG

What a difference a year makes. DG’s back on top.

2. JakePaul Team 10 – Eric The TV Watcher

Took two Ls but he bounced back; low scoring though.

3. Carton’s Scalpers – Luke from Ain’t No Daisy

Monday Night Letdown leads to .500 record; needs win streak.

4. Golden Tate Warriors – LordTreeSap

What a difference a week makes; will momentum be sustained?

5. The Moon’s DowntownBonanza – Nick from Ain’t No Daisy

Nick versus James is the big rivalry this league needs.

6. Ya Moms Sunday Sauce is Ragu – Tommy G

Continues to lose close games; something has got to give.

7. XO Ball Life – Producer Jim

Talk shit, get hit, but Jimbob finally backed it up.

8. Boston TE Party – Sisi

The panic button was not only pushed, it was destroyed.

DMR Fantasy Football League Power Rankings: Week 6

Welcome back to the DMR Fantasy Football League Power Rankings: Week 6.

Let’s take a peek at the standings, shall we?

Everything is still relatively close for this part of the season. There remains one undefeated team, but 3 teams are only 2 games behind so it’s still anyone’s race.

It’s Song Week! Pretend we’re doing American Idol without Sanjaya and everyone has to pick a song. Every team will be compared to a song so plug in the headphones, juice up, and enjoy the rankings.

1. Can’t Lose Again – DG

Last year, Bane broke my back and I lost this league. This year, I have risen. Somehow, someway, Can’t Lose Again still can’t lose. I won’t lie, it’s been an ideal start for your boy. However, I believe in Murphy’s law and something is going to go wrong. It is bound to happen and if I’m not ready for it, I’m in for a huge letdown. So it’s time I made my way back to Gotham to save the day.

2. JakePaul Team 10 – Eric The TV Watcher

Hold on for one more week. After a fast start, Eric the TV Watcher has now lost 2 straight blowouts. He still sits in good shape, but will things go his way? Eric doesn’t seem like the hold on type of guy. He’s a wildcard so I could see him dropping his whole team and picking up brand new players. You never know with the TV Watcher.

3. Carton’s Scalpers – Luke from Ain’t No Daisy

Anything Nick can do, Luke can do better. Luke can do fantasy better than Nick. For a week, for a week. Undertaker came out on top last week as he beat his brother Kane for the rights to Paul Bearer. At 3-2, Lucas is in a good spot as well, but has yet to register 2 wins in a row. Will he stop flip flopping like a pair of Reefs and get some consistency?

4. The Moon’s DowntownBonanza – Nick from Ain’t No Daisy

Gimme gimme points gimme points gimme gimme points. Nick has proven he can grind (out wins) better than a 7th grader at a Teen Canteen. The problem has been points. He’s still in a three-way tie for second, but the man needs to score like it’s prom night.

5. Ya Moms Sunday Sauce is Ragu – Tommy G

*switch Mike out for Shaq* The Italian Stallion got back in the win column after a Monday Night Miracle thanks to Jerrick McKinnon. You take what you can get in fantasy. However, Sunday Sauce runs into me this week so good luck with the Ragu, kid. I’ll take Prego.

6. Golden Tate Warriors – LordTreeSap

Michael noooooooo. Big Mike thought he had the victory in the bag on Monday night. He put his heart into last week, but needless to say, it has been broken. Mike should’ve known better not to chalk up Ws early because anything can happen in fantasy. Be better next time, kid.

7. XO Ball Life – Producer Jim

The man is in the win column! Congrats to Jimmy on the first W on the year. That being said, I’ve never met a more confident 1-4 team in my life. The kid talks more shit than a 13 year old on Call of Duty, but he did back it up last week so tip of the cap to him. Can he make it two straight or will he be eating a slice of humble pie when all is said and done?

8. Boston TE Party – Sisi

It’s been a rough start for young Sisilius. Losing to the only winless team is not ideal, but it was bound to happen after his team dropped the ball last week. If he doesn’t get a win this week, Elton John will be hammering those keys again as he sings the blues.

DMR Fantasy Football League Power Rankings: Week 5

We have a NEW number 1 in the rankings! In fact, we will have a battle for the top spot this week as the top 2 teams will face off. Also, we have the bottom 2 teams squaring off with both clinging on to hope like a single guy when the lights come on at Murphy’s.

In this week’s rankings, I will describe each team with a gif that I feel best describes their ranking.

1. Can’t Lose Again – DG

Dancing GIFs - Find & Share on GIPHY

From worst to first, Can’t Lose Again still can’t lose *knocks on wood one million times.* Everything seems to be going my way…for now. I know I am going to have a hiccup where I lose 2 straight games and give teams hope. Losing Dalvin Cooks hurts bigly (no typo. It hurts bigly) as I’m light at RB. However, the fast start has definitely helped me so if I can just squeak out a few more wins, we gucci fam.

2. JakePaul Team 10 – Eric The TV Watcher

Season 3 GIFs - Find & Share on GIPHY

Eric The Tv Watcher remains in 2nd after dropping his first game of the year in a thrashing to Michael. However, Mr. Burns always gets the last laugh and for now, the villain of this league is still in good shape. I honestly have no idea how he’s up this high by starting three Dolphins, but sometimes, it’s better to not ask any questions.

3. The Moon’s DowntownBonanza – Nick from Ain’t No Daisy

Musicals GIFs - Find & Share on GIPHY

Luck be a lady, TO-NIGHT! Nick is still the 2nd worst scorer in the league, but the man is winning games and right now, that is all that matters. Scratch, claw, fight, bite (hard). You do what you gotta do and at 3-1, Nick is in a favorable position. He has a big matchup this week with Brother Luke. Kane v. Undertaker. The Brothers of Destruction. Only one man can win. Tune in Monday night at 1130 LIVE ON PPV to see who wins.

4. Carton’s Scalpers – Luke from Ain’t No Daisy

Someone is sick and his name is Luke because after losing to the winless Boston TE Party, I would be hurting too. That’s fantasy though. 97 points isn’t a bad showing and Zeke broke out so those are some positives. As I said before, Undertaker has to defeat his brother Kane this week or Luke will rest in peace.

5. Golden Tate Warriors – LordTreeSap

Radio GIFs - Find & Share on GIPHY

Time to wake up Mike, and that’s exactly what you did. LTS woke up in a big way, scoring the most points in the league last week. LeVeon Bell returning to form is a scary sign so if that keeps up, Mike should shoot up in the rankings.

6. Ya Moms Sunday Sauce is Ragu – Tommy G

Youz say somdin about my mudda’s sauce? Tommy did not have a good Sunday dinner last week as he spilt the marinara in a 3 point loss. That’s a killer especially since he was wearing a white shirt. He’s already off to a poor start with a 12 spot from Tom Brady. Time to pray to the pasta gods.

7. Boston TE Party – Sisi

They always say the hardest win is the first one, but Sis is finally in the win column after dismantling the Undertaker in a buried alive match. The worst thing you can do is bring a team back from the dead and Sisi’s team already has a 22 point league. Can he keep the momentum alive?

8. XO Ball Life – Producer Jim

Sorry Jim. It was not your week again. I was worried at the end of Monday Night’s game, but it just wasn’t meant to be, my friend. The playoffs are still reachable, but it all starts with that first W. Good luck, Producer Jim.

DMR Fantasy Football League Power Rankings: Week 4

And we back *Chance The Rapper voice*

Here are the standings going into Week 4.

Not a lot has changed over the past week. This is a crucial week as 4-0 and 0-4 are real possibilities for some teams. That’s YUGEEEEEE. Let’s just get right into the rankings.

1. JakePaul Team 10 – Eric The TV Watcher

Another statement win for Eric The TV Watcher. He’s 2nd in the league in scoring so there’s a reason why he’s on top. Kareem Pie Hunt continues to make a mess on thr rest of the league. Honestly, Eric in this league is like Jake Paul in real life. As one gets more success, the neighbors begin to hate him and want him out. That’s just the everyday bro lifestyle.

2. Can’t Lose Again – DG

I’m coming for you, BRO ^^^^. Can’t Lose Again has still yet to lose! My team has been very consistent so far being lead by 2 rookie RBs in Fournette and Cook. I’m feeling even better after putting LTS, the fantasy guru *pause*, in his place last week. I took out one member of the Mix. Now, I’m coming for that ass, Producer Jim.

3. Carton’s Scalpers – Luke from Ain’t No Daisy

It looks like Carton’s scalpers has sold a lot of winning tickets as he sits in 3rd place with a 2-1 record. Luke leads the league in scoring after his 125.9 performance, which narrowly defeated Tommy G. I like Captain Kirk at QB and Antonion Big Brown at WR. If he can sure up the WR #2 position, there’s no reason why this team can’t slap the bass to a playoff berth.

4. The Moon’s DowntownBonanza – Nick from Ain’t No Daisy

Last week, I said that Trick Nicky was a product of luck, which he definitely has been. Well, my pep talk must’ve motivated him as he was the leading scorer in the league last week. Who would’ve thought that Stefon Diggs and Chris Thompson would be two of the top leading scorers in fantasy? If that production continues, watch out.

5.Ya Moms Sunday Sauce is Ragu – Tommy G

We got a name change! Now, Tommy was very unlucky last week as he lost despite dropping 121 points. That’s the way the cookie crumbles sometimes. Tom Brady is on another planet right now and Freeman continues to keep his 3 year hot streak alive. That’s a one spicy meatball!

6. Golden Tate Warriors – LordTreeSap

Another name change! Michael, Michael, Michael. What happened? He’s 2nd to last in scoring and he was defeated by yours truly last week. It’s weird. Mike is really good at RB and WR, but everyone else has not shown up for his team whatsoever. I think Sap has to stop playing Bumble and start playing the wavier wire.

7. Boston TE Party – Sisi

At least you moved up a spot! That’s some Little Giants progress! Sisi actually had a solid showing last week, scoring over 100 points. Sisi has studs at QB, WR, and TE, but it’s his running backs that have been more suspect that Murphy’s on a Thursday. At 0-3, Sisi needs a W.

8. XO Ball Life – Producer Jim

I DON’T REALLY CARE IF YOU CRYYYYYYYYYYYYY when you lose. Last but not least, Producer Jim has had a nightmarish start to the year. He has scored the least and has given up the most. That’s just unlucky, folks! That being said, I’m sure the pendulum will swing his way at some point. It has to. But I hope it’s not this week. Hang in there, Jim.

Good luck, gentlemen.

DMR Fantasy Football League Power Rankings: Week 3

If you listen to the podcast (subscribe here), you might have heard us talk about our fantasy league. That’s right, we are currently in the 2nd year of the DMR Fantasy Football League. It’s a big bragging rights league since it includes myself, LTS, Producer Jim, and other fans / previous guests of the program. Our league is also different in the fact that no one drafted their team. Since not everyone is on the same playing field in terms of fantasy football knowledge, we auto draft every single team. Completely random so the team you get is the team you get.

To better fill you in on the league, I have decided to do a weekly power rankings article that ranks the teams / players 1 to 8. This way, when we mention it on the podcast, people will now be able to see how their favorite or least favorite (probably me) person is doing. Also, this is a great way to introduce you to the members of the league so you can start rooting for who you think will win.

So without further ado, here are the Week 3 Power Rankings.

Standings

1. JakePaul Team 10 – Eric The TV Watcher

No surprise as to who is at the top as Eric The TV Watcher has had 2 great weeks of 100+ points. Kareem Hunt has turned out to be an absolute stud so if he stays healthy, Eric has a shot at running the table. However, Eric is definitely one of the villains in the league. He disappeared for most of last year, won the game he had to win in the losers bracket, and then decided to play NO ONE the next week. That’s right, he took out his whole team. What a COCKY move and the league was not happy about it. That’s how Eric lives everyday BRO.

2. Can’t Lose Again – DG

Can’t lose again has not lost so far this season! This is a sore subject for me since I lost the league last year and will have to face a punishment before the end of the year is up. It will involve the Internet roasting me to shreds so if you have ever wanted to be a keyboard warrior and say shit to me, that will be your chance. Anyway, I can’t complain where I am as of now. I have a deep team of studs such as Mike Evans, Matt Ryan, Marcus Mariota, AJ Green, and Demaryius Thomas. If my rookie RBs can get going, Can’t Lose Again might have a redemption year.

3. Team Money Manziels – Tommy G

Little brother is right on my heels per usual. When I first asked Tom how his team was, he told me “My team F’ing sucks.” Well, we have a boy who cried wolf situation on our hands because Tommy is the highest scorer in the league. Talk about an overreaction! Devonta Freeman and Tom Brady as his 1-2 punch is scary shhhheeeeeeettttttttt. However, he might have to fortify that bench sooner rather than later. Also, change your name. Now.

4. Carton’s Scalpers – Luke from Ain’t No Daisy

Luke Skywalker definitely wins for best name since we are a pro-WFAN website and podcast. Luke had a nice Week 1 win over Lil Uzi Wojcik with huge games from Antonio Brown and the Rams D out of all people. Luke is a big fan of Flea but he was burned in Week 2 like a red hot chili pepper. Let’s see if he can bounce back after only putting up 80 points.

5. The Moon’s DowntownBonanza – Nick from Ain’t No Daisy

Nicky must be a fan of Daft Punk because he has gotten lucky these past two weeks. He managed to get a W in Week 1 with 83 points, but the clock struck midnight on this Cinderella story as he got blown out by yours truly in Week 2. That being said, 1-1 is definitely better than 2-0 so he has some wiggle room. Russell Wilson and Odell Beckham Jr. have not gotten off to good starts and the injury to Jordan Howard hurts (nice pun). Nick has a few options on his bench but only time will tell if he can handle the weight of scoring.

6. Kim K and AJ – LordTreeSap

LordTreeSap prides himself on preparing for drafts and picking up good value players so he was not thrilled when he joined an all auto-draft league. After taking an L in Week 1, Mike bounced back in Week 2 with a 109 point outburst. If Le’Veon Bell and Todd Gurley can play like the studs that they are, watch out. Week 3 puts together DG vs. LTS so winner gets control of the site aka I still have it no matter what but we can think that LTS has a chance of getting it.

7. XO Ball Life – Producer Jim

Jim is a product of wrong place, wrong time. He was destroyed in Week 1. Week 2, Jim put up a respectable 114 points but he still look the L like a 20 year old at Murphy’s Ladies Night. Can Lil Uzi Wojcik get back on track? Push Jim to the edge, all his team is dead. With injuries to Dak Prescott, Tyler Eifert, and the lack of production from Adrian Peterson, Jim is going to need to get back on track before it’s too late.

8. Boston TE Party – Sisi

He might be a legend in Yorktown, but he has been anything but legendary in the league. I really don’t mind Sisi’s team. Aaaron Rodgers and Gronk is a good start. CJ Anderson has been a bright spot as well. However, if Jordy Nelson is out, Sisi might have to turn to Chris Hulk Hogan and run wild on the rest of the league.

That’s it for this week. Tune in next week to see how we did.

2017 DMR Podcast Fantasy Football Special

Welcome to the 2nd Ever 2017 Daily Mix Report Podcast Fantasy Football Special. The Fantasy trio is back as DG, LordTreeSap, and Brandon Trager are back to get you ready for your fantasy football draft

First things first, the article picture. This was our 8th grade travel football team. If you can believe it, this was the only picture that I could find with all 3 of us in it. It’s 11 years old! That being said, it’s a legendary picture. LTS with the skull cap (sick bro!), BT with the old school Justin Bieber haircut as he’s about to sing “One Time,”, and I’m ready to sell someone insurance. GTs, fellas. GTs.

Now that we got that out of the way, the show has it all. We covered our bold statements and predictions from last season that will give everyone a few laughs. Sap’s still waiting for Lamar Miller to be a Top 5 RB. From there, we broke down position by position our way. You all know Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers will be beasts. So instead, we just stated our break outs stars, busts, and potential sleepers for each position (looking at you, Jay Cutler. Yeah, I said it. Sleeper QB). Will Jameis take the next step to glory? Can Beast Mode be Beast Mode again? How long should you sit before drafting a QB?

All that and more on the podcast. Give it a listen and win your league.

Or, just get drunk at your draft and have fun. Either one works.
