Now before we get into who won this award, let’s talk about how this is going to work. As you all know, we are the most inclusive DFFL there is, so naturally this award is non-binary. The SOTW can be given to any person, animal, object, TV show, podcast, etc. Say you had your fish choose between two starters that week and it helped you win the league, that fish is SOTW! Maybe you tinkered Sunday morning on the dirty toilet in Denny’s, guess what? That toilet is SOTW! I think you get the picture. GT will be the contact for all SOTW nominations.
Welcome back to your second/third favorite weekly column!
Week one was weird for many reasons, Josh actually wrote a column, Andrew Luck wasn’t on the field, and Antonio Brown signed with the Pats. But the weirdest thing had to be not playing Jason in Week 1. 2019 is an unprecedented season in the Wasted Talent Fantasy Football League. There was a realignment during the offseason which led to all new Week 1 matchups.
The SOTW for this very weird week is…………..
Why dogs you ask? Well weird week 1 brought us many upsets in my eyes. Let’s recap quick.
Jordan defeated GT
Leff defeated Donald
Ryan defeated Josh
Keegan defeated Don
Zeglen lost to Jason
While Jason continued his streak of dominance, the other 4 games saw the underdogs take the victories. Our reigning champion fell while our reigning sacko triumphed, and 3 of the top 4 scorers from last year also faced defeat. This was not expected at all, Mike Clay predicted all 4 of these upsets incorrectly.
It is a new year in the WTFFL, has the division realignment brought upon a new era of powerhouses? Stay tuned to find out. One thing is certain, we need dogs in this league, no kitty cats.
So there you have it, your Week 1 Star of the Week!
