Another great week of football, but another bad week for The Moose. Jimmy's team, 7th Floor West Moose, got very dismal production from it's quarterback, Josh Freeman, with only 180yds in the air and a pair of interceptions. Fortunately for Josh, his Bucs were able to hold off the Falcons and get the victory, but unfortunately for Jimmy, your player's team wins don't hold any merit.
7th Floor West Moose is still trying to find some sort of ground game. Maurice Jones-Drew has been a consistent spark plug for his team gaining 122yds on 24 carries and 45yds on 5 receptions. Unfortunately Jimmy can't find a number two back to step up. He's had to start an injured Steven Jackson who only had 23yds.
There also hasn't been much air attack from The Moose. Robert Meachem from the Saints proves to be Jimmy's best receiver as he celebrated his third consecutive week with a touchdown grab. Other than Meachem, he has had almost zero production from his receiving corps. It seems as though Jimmy's best receivers are on the bench. An interesting strategy to maybe sike out your opponent? Or perhaps a busy schedule hosting your own Late Night talk show and didn't have time to move around your roster? Either way, 7th Floor West Moose should get the bench more involved as they are putting up better numbers than the starters.
All in all, it was already a tough battle going up against Late Night writer Patrick Borelli's Team Fancy Pants. Fancy pants indeed, as his team remains undefeated and effortlessly destroying the opposition. Basically, Borelli's team is the entire New England Patriots roster. So if they do well, which Tom Brady and Wes Welker always do, then he does well. Even though the Pats lost Team Fancy Pants still put up some sick numbers. Wes Welker had two touchdown snags, and Brady threw for 387yds, four TD's, and four picks. All this proved to be too much for The Moose who is still trying to find a solid starting line-up. Jimmy drops to 1-2 while Fancy Pants remains undefeated.

And now for Borelli's results:
So that's a wrap. The Moose doesn't have a whole lot of time to lick it's wounds as the competition doesn't get any easier next week as Jimmy goes head to head with Late Night director Dave Diomedi. Team Diomedi remains undefeated and has been handling his opposition with ease. The Moose is in desperate need of a win, but if they don't establish some consistency this could be another beat down. The good thing is it takes no talent to out work your opponent. Let's hope that applies to the Fantasy world too.
