Big 12 Fantasy Football: Week 2

You had the worst draft, they said. Jake Trotter’s team is so much better, they said.

Well, they were wrong.

Thanks to the savvy additions of Texas Tech quarterback Baker Mayfield and Baylor’s defense, plus five more double-digit performances, yours truly won Week 2 of our Big 12 fantasy football league. At 158 points, it wasn’t even close.

The two Big 12 stars atop the fantasy charts this week were J.W. Walsh (36 points) and Lache Seastrunk (33), and Brandon Chatmon has both on his Big 12 team. He finished in second place with 116 points.

The cocky, foolish Trotter got five total points from his wide receivers and settled for third place with 101 points. Hopefully he learned a lesson about counting us out.

We’re permitted two waiver wire pickups each week. Jake added Oklahoma RB Brennan Clay following his breakout 17-point performance and also landed Oklahoma State kicker Ben Grogan, and my team added West Virginia WR Kevin White and the Oklahoma defense. Dropping the Texas defense from my bench was, uh, not a tough call.
