Midwest Sports Fans:
Is 2011 going to be the highest scoring fantasy season of all time? All signs indicate that it could be. Last season, seven players finished the season with more than 270 points (ESPN Standard Scoring). After four weeks this season, a staggering 18 players were on pace to beat that mark…and nine of them were QBs.
Like I said at the beginning of the season, gone are the days of fantasy rule by the RBs. Of those 18 players, only 5 are RBs…simply a staggering thought to anyone living in 2006 or before.
With the rise in scoring, it is getting increasingly easy to predict breakout performances for players…as well as increasingly difficult to predict who will have a bad day. For instance, this week, I was 17 for 24 on my predictions for guys that I thought would be successful. On the other hand, I was only 11 for 20 on guys I thought you should sit. It’s just so difficult to predict who will play poorly when everyone is putting up record numbers.
Nevertheless, Jerod and I stand her...

There is more Hillis talk in the news today because Hillis gave the media a minute to obliterate a deceased equine. You can go find that information if you need to find it and take it out of context to somehow make it interesting.

Browns running back Peyton Hillis says he's now worried about not being able to sign a long-term contract extension with the club.
Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis, who's still hearing criticism about missing a Sept. 25 game with strep throat, is becoming unsure about his future with the team.
I have to say, for the most part, I’m pretty pleased with the Browns season thus far. Well, maybe ‘pleased’ isn’t the word. Satisfied? I dunno, may be. But for what it’s worth, they’re meeting my expectations. They are who I thought they were.
