SEC fantasy challenge: Week 6
By Edward Aschoff
Seriously, if you are looking for fantasy football advice, please, for the sake of football, don't come to me.
I can't help you because I can't even help myself.
My colleague Chris Low has all the answers. He's blowing me out of the College Football Challenge fantasy water as Over the Hill improved to 5-1 on the year with a 133-77 beatdown of my Young Guns (1-5). If you think my college fantasy team is bad, you should see my pro one. I don't even keep up with it anymore, but I'm pretty sure I haven't won a game yet this season.
Tyler Wilson, Spencer Ware, Alshon Jeffery and Alabama's defense all got Chris 20-plus points, while my top scorer grabbed 14 points, and that was LSU's defense.
It's been a really tough go for my team and me this year, but the appropriate changes will be made and we'll keep our heads up every week.
Chris Relf hasn't done much for Mississippi State's offense in recent weeks, which means he hasn't done much for me. I had to cut ties with him and picked up Alabama's AJ McCarron. He isn't flashy, but he's efficient and that's all I need at this point to help out Aaron Murray, who actually needs help himself from his own real teammates.
(Calling any and all Georgia receivers.)
Also, it's time to say goodbye to Vick Ballard. Ballard has struggled as well lately and it's time to pick up Auburn's Michael Dyer. He's just been sitting there daring me to pick him up and he faces Florida's rush defense this weekend, so I figure I can get some points out of him.
Chris is actually shaking things up (like he really has to). With Tyler Bray going down with that thumb injury, Chris picked up South Carolina's Connor Shaw. And that's about it because he doesn't really need much help. It's actually pretty arrogant of him if you ask me. He actually admitted that he doesn't check his team because he just assumes he's already won. If you're so good, why even pick anyone else up?
Real classy, Chris.
