Fantasy Football Fix: Fantasy Outsiders Week 8 Recap

BICKLEY 117.5 – 113.7 Luke
Difference Makers: The last remaining undefeated team fell, as Bickley used a 26-point effort from Tavon Austin to end Luke’s bid at perfection by less than 4 points. He also ran his own record to 7-1 in the process, and pulled into a tie for the overall league lead. Had Luke played Dion Lewis (23) or Charcandrick West (22) instead of Doug Martin (9) or Chris Ivory (7), there may have been a different result here. Then again, if Bickley had played Derek Carr (29) instead of Russell Wilson (14) it would have cancelled out anyway.

DOUG 129.5 – 129.1 Byrd
Difference Makers: Doug narrowly edged Byrd by less than a point to pick up his seventh straight victory, but lost Le’Veon Bell in the process. Tom Brady led the way with 30 points, and the Texans D helped out by surprisingly chipping in 19. With the loss, Byrd has dropped three in a row and now has another reason to be angry at Carlos Hyde – which is really what fantasy football is all about.

CALVISI 120 – 112.9 Burns
Difference Makers: Calvisi got 29 points from A.J. Green, and another 24 from Philip Rivers as he picked up his fifth win and maintained his status as the league’s overall top scorer to date (29 points ahead of Luke for the season). Julio Jones (32) turned in a monster effort for Burns, but the negative points from the Packers D (-5) were too much to overcome.

PAIGE 154.5 – 102.4 Wolf
Difference Makers: Once again, Wolf faced the highest scoring team of the week. This time it was Paige, who got 20-plus points from Julian Edelman (28), Stefon Diggs (22), Larry Fitzgerald (21), Heath Miller (21) and – the ultimate injustice – her kicker (Justin Tucker, 20). Wolf got seven TDs and 44 points from Drew Brees, but it wasn’t enough. For the year, he has now faced 90 points more than anyone else.

MAROTTA 149.5 – 88.3 B-Train
Difference Makers: Marotta continued his quiet run back to respectability, using a 39-point effort from Odell Beckham Jr. to pick up his third consecutive win. Ben Watson chipped in 30 as well for Vince, who is now somehow just one game back of a playoff spot, after beginning the season 0-5.
