Flappr Fantasy Football Week 1: Begin Season Two

Welcome to the second season of the Flappr Fantasy Football League. The league has 10 teams again this year. @balling_it has taken over the duties of commissioner from the legendary Leroy Brown (@Nworb_Yorel). Our returning champion is @jonbrooks935, so lets see what kind of advice he has for winning your FFL this year.

Thanks for the insight, champ!

Last year, we awarded a Flappr Top Hat to the highest scoring team of each week, and presented a (picture of a) top hat trophy to the champion. In an effort to honor everyone's favorite Flappr correspondent, we decided to name the trophy the "Professor James O'Flannery Memorial Trophy", but he got angry and ran off muttering something about not being dead yet.

Maybe we'll just call it the O'Flannery Trophy.

Anyway, let's get to the opening week matchups.

Penalty Boxers (@ground_miller) vs. M.I.L.F. (Man I Love Football) (@ElderBartleby): The first Top Hat of the year goes to the Penalty Boxers (me) for scoring 150.12 points, taking advantage of the new Superflex rule that allows teams to play 2 QBs. Bart had a decent week, earning the 4th highest score of the week, but it wasn't enough. He does however get the Flappr Forgotten Man award for having Cordarrelle Patterson's 21.1 points on the bench. The Boxers won 150.12 - 120.18.

Bad Mans (@Nworb_Yorel) vs. Fugly Slots (@balling_it): The Fugly Slots used Justin Jefferson's big day against the Packers to take a commanding lead and never looked back, getting the 2nd highest score of the week. The Bad Mans kept it close considering 3 starters scored less than 5 points each. @ballingit took home the W 133.58-113.18.

Typical Packers coverage of Justin Jefferson

Deus Le Volt (@Twi77erSuxDong) vs. Italian Defense League (@michcusejac5): The Italians took an early lead behind Stefon Diggs and the Buffalo D/ST, but Deus came back behind all around strong play from his lineup. Deus scored the 3rd most points for the week, behind strong play from his QBs. @Twi77erSuxSong topped JAC 130.38-102.98.

Derrick Henry's White Twin (@jonbrooks935) vs. Zach Wilson Banged My Mom (@_Miller__Lite_): This game featured two teams that didn't reach 100 points for the week, but still came down to Monday night. As you might have guessed, the defending champion didn't set his lineup, but he still squeaked out a win 90.74 to 87.68. Miller Lite just didn't get enough out of Russell Wilson to get the win. The Champ starts 1-0, beating @_Miller__Lite_ 90.74. -87.68

"Hey DK, I have a silly idea (LOL!) let's ALSO do a jock strap swap. No Homo, LOL!"

Uncle AC and The Anabaptists (@ywst_ac) vs. Hackensack Cockles (@SteroidRespectr): This game came down to Monday night as well, with the Cockles falling just short with Courtland Sutton and Brandon McManus on Monday night. Maybe if McManus hit that 64 yarder, it would have been different. Uncle AC left some points on the bench, but Travis Kelce and A.J. Brown led the way. @SteroidRespectr lost a close to @ywst_ac 108.18 - 101.30.
