Players of the Week – Week 2
By Sean Dochney
Sean Collins – Rabid Squirrels
Sean was absolutely dominant in a real lopsided affair against the Grizzlies as the Rabid Squirrels cruised to a 54-16 victory. Collins would go 27-36 for 402 yards and 7 touchdowns without throwing an interception. Collins, who missed week 1, had a near perfect quarterback rating for the day with a 150.7. Collins spread the ball around phenomenally as receivers Mike Lawrence, Joe Andress and Corey Feldman would all haul in 2 touchdowns. Sean looks to stay hot next week as the Rabid Squirrels will play yet another team that missed out on the Spring Playoffs, French Toast Mafia. Sean looks to be a great add for your team in the JSGFFL’s new weekly fantasy contests (coming soon).
QB Runner Up
Jim Florimont – Assassins
Jim had a big game for the new expansion team Assassins as he played against his former squad, the Shockers. The Assassins would fall just short of shocking the world and handing the “Evil Empire” Shockers their first loss in over 2 years. This was a back and forth game that saw the Assassins lose 31-34. Florimont would go 21-41 for 332 yards, 5 touchdowns, and 0 picks for the day. His 2 top receivers, the Anonymous Benny and Jake Kearton, would each have 5 catches for over 100 yards on the day. It was an impressive showing for the Assassins even though they took the loss. They will be playing the Grizzlies in this upcoming week, and the Assassins will look to crack the Fine Five Power Rankings if they can come away with a victory. Jim looks to be a great add for your team in the JSGFFL’s new weekly fantasy contests (coming soon).
Anonymous Benny – Assassins
The Anonymous Benny came out of nowhere for the Assassins and had a huge game that helped his team almost pull off the biggest upset of the young Summer Season. The Mysterious One would make big play after big play for the Assassins as he hauled in 5 catches for 148 yards and a touchdown. I don’t even know this guy’s last name, but if he can keep making big plays like last week, the Assassins will surprise a lot of people this year. Anonymous Benny will be looking to do some damage against the Grizzlies this upcoming week. Benny looks to be a great add for your team in the JSGFFL’s new weekly fantasy contests (coming soon).
WR Runner Up
Joe Andress – Rabid Squirrels
Andress filled in admirably week 1 as QB when Collins was a no show, but Joe was back to WR for week 2 against the Grizzlies. He made his present felt too as he made 7 catches for 97 yards and 2 touchdowns. The Rabid Squirrels were feeling pretty good about themselves after the victory as you could hear some yelling “Carlo Who”. Some might say they are getting a little ahead of themselves since the schedule has been in their favor, but more on that in the power rankings due to come out later. The Rabid Squirrels will be playing French Toast Mafia on Saturday, and will need the balanced receiving corps to come up big again for them. Joe looks to be a great add for your team in the JSGFFL’s new weekly fantasy contests (coming soon).
Garrett Lavaggi – Woodchucks
Stats can’t come close to measuring the level of impact “Loud Mouth” Lavaggi had on the game against the Warewolves, in which the Woodchucks would win 20-16. The Woodchucks Spiritual leader earned the moniker of “Dooley’s Daddy” in this game as he was able to get in his head all day and left Ryan on Lavaggi Island. Everyone could tell that Dooley lost the psychological battle even before stepping on the field this past week (see #TrollingDooleyWeek on Twitter). Dooley was intimidated and frustrated and would even go on to drop multiple balls with Lavaggi on him. Dooley, not known to be a blocker, would whimper with his tail between his legs and start blocking when he could not haul in a catch with Lavaggi blanketing him. Dooley is still feeling the psychosomatic side effects, rumor has it that he faked an ankle injury just so he wouldn’t have to show up for week 3. Lavaggi will be leading the Woodchucks against another tough game in the Shockers on Saturday. Garrett looks to be a great add for your team in the JSGFFL’s new weekly fantasy contests (coming soon).
Defensive Runner Up
Justin Kramer – French Toast Mafia
French Toast Mafia absolutely crushed the Rattlers to a score of 56-6. The Rattlers had no answer for Kramer’s pass rush as Justin would end up with 6 sacks. The Rattlers’ QB Anthony Manuzza was visibly rattled by the pass rush and could not get anything going on offense. Kramer and French Toast Mafia will see QB POTW Sean Collins and the Rabid Squirrels in Week 3. Collins will definitely have his hands full against a much better pass rush that French Toast Mafia brings to the table. Kramer looks to be a great add for your team in the JSGFFL’s new weekly fantasy contests (coming soon).
