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.
I have hit rock bottom.
I entered the preseason excited about my team. I finished third in 2018, was loaded at QB, and got placed in the weaker division. Things were going great.
Until they weren’t….
Andrew Luck retired, Lamar Miller broke his fuckin leg (he couldn’t put his team on his back doe), Tyreek Hill got hurt week 1, and my team is trash now.
Enter our SOTW. Unlike me, he doesn’t make excuses when his team gets hit with the injury bug or is under-performing. Does it matter that he has a negative point differential? No, he goes out there and finds a way to win.
Your SOTW for week 4…….
That’s right, our reigning champion is getting the recognition he deserves.
Don started out 0-2, but did that discourage him? No. He is getting outscored by an average of 14.6 points per week. Well guess what, he is still 2-2. He won a championship last year while getting outscored by 12.2 points per game. The guy is as resilient as they come.
Instead of deciding to tank like a coward *cough* me *cough*, Don went out and improved his team.
Don makes the best deals, he got Thielen for his first rounder and received praise from around the league. He knows cowards overvalue draft picks.
Congrats Don, go out there and give Thielen the winning culture he deserves.
Your past and future Sackomone
