Acting On A Snow Warning And Burning It Up

I tuned into the NFL Network yesterday afternoon and noticed that the Denver Broncos home game against the Kansas City Chiefs had the potential to be a snow game because Mile High Stadium was covered in snow.

My first thought - 'Yes! A snow game!' Because I love watching snow games from the comfort of my warm home.

Then, it hit me.

The Chiefs' Patrick Mahomes is the starting quarterback in my fantasy team. I thought about it for a few seconds and concluded I would bench him in favour of the Jaquars' QB - Trevor Lawrence - who was set to play the Pittsburgh Steelers.

By the time of the Chiefs .vs. Broncos game, the Jaguars had beaten the Steelers by a score of 20-10 with Lawrence picking up 14.68 points for my team.

The Broncos game wasn't snowy at all. Everything seemed to have cleared up by kick off. Therefore, I wondered whether I had made a mistake by placing Mahomes off the bench.

My pre-emptive strike did not backfire on me. The home team upset the Chiefs with a score of twenty-four to nine. 

As for Mahomes? Well, his fantasy score was 5.64.

My team picked up a total of 175.58 points. My opponent's squad of players has accrued 118.06, but it still has one player left to take the field.

Fantasy Football - Week 8 2023 - Current Score

If I've calculated this correctly: Josh Jacobs, the running back of the Las Vegas Raiders, has to score 57.53 fantasy points tonight to stop me from going 4-4 on the season.

I think it's safe to say I'm going to take the W.
