Things got a little cluttered on the blog last week, so our fantasy challenge update had to wait.
The funny thing is that two weeks ago we saw the Young Guns come away with their first victory of the year with a 114-75 win against Over the Hill. I guaranteed victory in the College Football Challenge, and my team made good on my prediction.
One reason for my team's first win of the year was Chris' inability to replace quarterback Tyler Bray, who was on his bye. Still, I don't think Bray would have put up enough to win.
But last week, things went back to normal. Over the Hill (4-1) came back with the fury, winning 134-103 over the Young Guns (1-4). Chris benefited from 63 combined points from Bray and fellow quarterback Tyler Wilson. He even had Joe Adams and Spencer Ware get zero points, but Trent Richardson notched 32 of his own.
However, the king of the day was my new pickup in Arkansas wide receiver Jarius Wright. Wright, who replaced Greg Childs on my team, put up 40 points. My next best scorer was LSU's defense, which got 19.
With Auburn receiver Emory Blake doubtful for the Arkansas game, it's time to bring up another option. That option will be Tennessee's Da'Rick Rogers. I was against picking him up because I figured teams would double-team him more, and they still might, but he is a special talent and I need a healthy body at receiver.
