    Week 5 Preview

    STATE OF THE LEAGUE : Just about one quarter through the first season of TMFL and the injury bug is striking around the league. All World defensive end Robert Quinn (Rams) is out another 4 weeks with a dislocated elbow. Jimmy Graham (Saints) is on the shelf for the rest of the season with a torn pec. Jadeveon Clowney (Texans) received some broken ribs on a vicious crack back block. Other notable injuries include, Jay Cutler, CJ Spiller, Vernon Davis, and Star Lotulelei. The next man up philosophy is in effect across the league, while having depth is vital to success. Speaking of depth the Chiefs added some with #1 free agent RG Carl Nicks. In a surprise move the Raiders cut the top waiver wire acquisition in favor of former Raiders.

    TY HILTON WR - INDY Week 4 -, 6 Catches for 174 and 2 TDs !!

    Fantasy Must Start : BISHOP SANKEY - RB Week 5
    The Titans like to run the ball, and Bishop is the lead horse in the stable! Jake Locker is also passing the ball very well so a balanced attack will keep the D on their toes! The Week 5 match up is against the Cleveland Browns at home. After suffering back-to-back losses the Titans leadership is looking to get things back on track. The Browns bring in the 29th Ranked Defense against the run, so Bishop is this weeks fantasy must start! 28 Carries 120 Yards and 2 TDs!​

    Owner interviews with the Drill Sgt

    This week we sit down with the coach of the Dallas Cowboys' charter04

    1. Week 5 is the Battle for Texas, JJ Watt has been on record saying "THIS IS OUR STATE" What's your reaction to these claims?
    • Everyone knows the Cowboys own Texas. America's baby. Lol

    2. With Michael Sam long gone, was this a football move or a locker room move?

    • Both. He's not very good mostly though.

    3. With Kyle Orton in Buffalo, how do you feel about him duping you guys?
    • He sucks. He just wants a pay check without having to play

    4. Vikings vs Packers in the Northern tier, who wins?
    • Depends on how many sim games each team wins after week 5. ;) I'm going with the Pack



    DRILL SGT's Top 10 Power Ranking :
    1. Seattle Seahawks --
    2. Kansas City Chiefs --
    3. Carolina Panthers --
    4. Oakland Raiders +6 The undefeated Raaaaiiidddaasss and will remain so through 5, on bye
    5. Indianapolis Colts +8 The Colts got things rolling w/Luck and those weapons
    6. Pittsburgh Steelers -1 no data ... sim ???
    7. Atlanta Falcons +2 Matt Ryan and the Falcons bounced back with blowout win vs division foe Bucs
    8. Dallas Cowboys +4 Cowboys are atop of the the NFC East and doing things very quietly!
    9. Cincinnati Bengals +5 Cinci a lot like NYG, doing things efficiently and quietly!
    10. Philadelphia Eagles +4 Iggles riding on the legs of Shady
    Week five is upon us with no change at the top... We are starting to witness the cream rising to the top. The Seahawks/Chiefs/Panthers are handling the opposition dominating in key statistical categories. The Hawks bolster the top offense and the leagues #2 D. This translates to getting owned .. Some big match ups this week include; Falcons/Giants, Cowboys/Texans and Colts/Ravens. These games are big as each team needs a W to stay in contention within some tight divisional races.
    The Bucs, Vikings and Browns are all also looking for their first wins, so these teams are very dangerous at this point! Which leads us to !!!


    DRILL SGT's Upset Pick of the Week :
    The Houston Texans will take home the Lone Star trophy behind the arm of Ryan Mallett and hands of Andre Johnson! The first place NFC East Cowboys are on record saying the Cowboys own TEXAS, JJ Watt begged to differ. The Texans move the ball with ease and avg 348 YPG; which is 3rd in the league. I think the Cowboys fresh off a win to the Saints are looking past the Texans to their week 6 match-up with the #1 Seahawks. The Texans have had this game circled on their schedule since this off season. Look for all the key players to chime in, in this huge interstate battle. Arian Foster goes for 80 yards and a TD while Mallett goes for 340 through the air; 130 of those yards going to Andre the Great !

    Great stuff Black Republican.

    Panthers still haven't hit their stride offensively. Cam has been working all weekend diving deeper into the playbook and hopefully this side of the ball improves for us. On the flip side, our defense is in midseason form. Keeping us in every game early while the offense stalls drive after drive.

    I Actually like our receiving core in real life but it doesn't transfer well to our playbook on Madden with them all being tall and slow. Really worked on my offensive play calling last few days trying to get the most out of my guys.
