Nobody Cares About Your Fantasy Team: Week Two Results

Nobody Cares About Your Fantasy Team: Week Two Results

Well, this was a pretty rough week all-around for Eagles fans, but us here at the Level at least can take solace in something of a bounceback week in our Inaugural Fantasy League. Team Enrico rode a monstrous fantasy performance from Titans RB Chris Johnson to a league-high 113 points and easy Week Two victory, and my Edmonton Enigmas barely held off a disturbingly surging performance from Dolphins/Findum Pluckum and Flee back Ronnie Brown last night to secure a squeaker win and get myself on the board as well. Kulp's wasn't quite so lucky, unfortunately, as for the second straight week, his Andy Reid's Drug Emporium scored 90+ points, but didn't come out with the W. We're glad that the blog at large is on the board, at least.

Congrats to Team Vicktory and The Marmots for being the only two 2-0 teams, and kudos as well to Hayyy, Girl! and the South Park Towelies for evening their records at 1-1. Full stats for the League and the Eagles' individual performances (of which DeSean Jackson's 17 points were a team high) after the jump:

Edmonton Enigmas 89 (1-1) - Findum Pluckum and Flee 87 (1-1)
Team Enrico 113 (1-1) - Koy Detmer's Neck Beard 59 (1-1)
Hayyy, Girl! 99 (1-1) - Andy Reid's Drug Emporium 94 (0-2)
Team Vicktory 105 (2-0) - Kibbles n Vicks 53 (1-1)
The Marmots 109 (2-0) - MagicMac #5 (1-1)
South Park Towelies 93 (1-1) - Wildcat Malt Offense 74 (0-2)

DeSean Jackson - 17 (Marmots)
Jason Avant - 13 (Andy Reid)
Brent Celek - 10 (Koy Detmer)
David Akers - 8 (Wildcat)
Brian Westbrook - 6 (Enrico)
Kevin Curtis - 4 (Enigmas)
LeSean McCoy - 4 (MagicMac)
Jeremy Maclin - 1 (Towelies)
Leonard Weaver - 0 (Vicktory)
Alex Smith - 0 (Kibbles)
Hank Baskett - 0 (Hayy Girl)--technically no longer still an Eagle, but we'll let it go for the week.
Eagles D - -4 (Findum)--only down 40 points from last week.

Former Eagles QB Tim Tebow hits home run on first pitch in first pro at-bat

Former Eagles QB Tim Tebow hits home run on first pitch in first pro at-bat

Well, heck. Look at that.

Tim Tebow, former NFL quarterback prospect for many teams including the Philadelphia Eagles, hit a home run in his first at-bat as a professional baseball player.

And not only did he hit a home run in his first at-bat, it was on the FIRST PITCH he saw in a game for the Mets team in the Port St. Lucie instructional league in Florida.

I wonder if Phillies' reliever David Hernandez saw Tebow's dinger.

You think the Mets can call him up for the postseason or what?

TEBOW TIME! In his first live-action AB, Tim Tebow hits a solo HR to left-center.

First instructional league at-bat. First pitch. First HOME RUN. @TimTebow, everybody.

NFL Notes: Texans place J.J. Watt on IR; Dez Bryant misses practice

NFL Notes: Texans place J.J. Watt on IR; Dez Bryant misses practice

HOUSTON — The Houston Texans placed star defensive end J.J. Watt on injured reserve on Wednesday.

The move came one day after a person familiar with Watt's condition told The Associated Press he had re-injured his back and that the Texans expect him to be sidelined until at least December — and possibly the entire season. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the team hasn't discussed his injury.

Watt, who has won Defensive Player of the Year for the past two seasons, missed training camp and Houston's four preseason games after surgery in July to repair a herniated disk in his back. He started each of the team's three regular-season games and got hurt again Thursday against the Patriots.

The Texans signed veteran defensive end Antonio Smith to take his spot on the roster.

The team was still exploring the injury and it's unclear if it will require surgery.

It's a major blow for Houston, which selected Watt with the 11th overall pick in the 2011 draft. Watt has played 83 consecutive games for the Texans despite various injuries, including torn core muscles and a broken hand last season.

This was a tough offseason for Watt, who had surgery in January to repair five torn core muscles before going under the knife again in July to repair his back.

Watt, who led the NFL with 17 1/2 sacks last season, has 1 1/2 sacks this season to give him 76 for his career.

The 27-year-old is a three-time Defensive Player of the Year and a four-time Pro Bowler. He's been a force since entering the league not only because of his pass-rushing prowess, but also because of his uncanny ability to swat down passes. He has 45 passes defended in his six-year career. He has forced 15 fumbles and recovered 13.

Cowboys: Dez Bryant (knee) misses practice
FRISCO, Texas — Dallas receiver Dez Bryant won't practice Wednesday after injuring his right knee in last week's win over Chicago.

Bryant injured the knee on his first catch early in the game but came back in the first quarter. He caught his first touchdown of the season in the fourth quarter of the 31-17 win.

Coach Jason Garrett said the team didn't have results of an MRI, and Bryant tweeted, "We'll find out today," to a fan who asked about his status.

Bryant missed seven games last year after breaking his foot in the opener. He also dealt with ankle injuries last season.

The Cowboys visit San Francisco on Sunday.
