Week 1 is in the books, and I guess it is safe to say that it didn’t disappoint… or did it? This past week, the average game was decided by 13.6 points, with only 3 games being decided by a touchdown or less, both of which are considered to be anomalies by today’s standards. Despite that lack of competitive play, that does translate to a handful of players who reap the benefits of padding stats during an efficient offensive day.
How ironic is it that we spend weeks on end analyzing stats and projections to death, expecting a certain result only to get into a Week 1 where Alex Smith, Sam Bradford and Jared Goff lead the league in passer rating (called that one in good vibes week 1 btw), and among the 3 top scoring PPR RB’s, we’d see names like Tarik Cohen and Mike Gillislee (definitely didn’t call that one). I mean seriously, I would love to meet the guy who predicted the Smith/Bradford/Siemian/Goff group would throw 8 more touchdowns than the Rodgers/Brady/Ryan/Wilson group. While good vibes and bad vibes are based off of reasonable expectation, there are certain weeks where logic just goes out the window. Last week I hit a home run with my good vibes of Jared Goff, and my bad vibes surrounding Adrian Peterson, yet I had a huge swing and a miss when it came to my bad vibes about Ty Montgomery. Take my advice for what you will, I may not always be right, but heading into Week 2, i’m yet again, full of vibes, both good and bad.
Whether you are trying to keep a win streak alive, or just trying to get back on track, take a look at which players are giving me good vibes and which are giving me bad vibes in week 2: Continue reading Good Vibes/Bad Vibes: Week 2 Matchups
