Team Torch is THRIVING this week, as they absolutely bulldozed the Bulldogs in fantasy scoring, taking a convincing 166-105 victory.
Ferris had a tough matchup for their 2018 homecoming game against the Ashland Eagles, contributing to a less than stellar performance in
their matchup with the pros, although they did come out with a 28-21 victory.
Ashland did not allow any of Ferris’ backs to break loose, giving the Bulldogs a zero in both the second running back slot and in the FLEX.
When it comes down to it, the Bulldogs only succeeded in the passing game, which is why Ferris junior quarterback Jayru Campbell and his favorite target in Ferris redshirt freshman Sy Barnett scored the most points in fantasy for Ferris. Campbell even managed to outscore Tom Brady.
There seems to be a recurring theme for the Bulldogs: Campbell puts up big points, but the rest of the fantasy team suffers as a result. Ferris football head coach Tony Annese could be relying on his signal caller just a bit too much.
On the opposite end, the running game was alive and well for the Dallas Cowboys, as Ezekiel Elliott racked up more than 200 yards of total offense.
Can I get a standing ovation for my pick of Cooper Kupp this week? Kupp was a less-than-favorite pick as he faced a stingy Vikings defense, but he racked up 37 points for Team Torch. Team Torch and the Bulldogs are 2-2 in Fantasy football now, giving me hope for the future.
However, I did feel this earlier this season before Campbell single-handedly destroyed my lineup.
Ferris will be back in action 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 6, as they take on Michigan Tech University at Fifth Third Ballpark in Comstock Park.
Here are my picks for next week:
QB: Cam Newton – Carolina Panthers: The king of swagger will give “the city that never sleeps” nightmares this week.
RB1: Leonard Fournette – Jacksonville Jaguars: Fournette has been sidelined with injury this season. Let’s hope for a breakout game here.
RB2: Dion Lewis – Tennessee Titans: The Titans have found a way to win this year, thanks to the play of the speedy Lewis.
WR1: Marvin Jones – Detroit Lions: I’m a sucker for the Lions and Jones is a deep-threat with an ability to pull in the most contested catches.
WR2: Albert Wilson – Miami Dolphins: Wilson has had a solid few weeks for his new team. Here’s hoping he balls out against Cincinnati.
TE: Hunter Henry – Los Angeles Chargers: An infusion of young talent should help Team Torch be explosive.
D/ST: Houston Texans: Jadeveon Clowney and J.J. Watt. Enough said.
K: Robbie Gould – San Francisco 49ers: Consistency is key at this position and Gould has been a model of that for the last decade.
FLEX: Corey Clement – Philadelphia Eagles: He’s got speed and can catch the ball. Minnesota looks lost on defense. Perfect matchup here.
