2019 DEFEND YOUR MOVES AWARDS NOMINEES!!! PLUS WEEK 13 MATCHUPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We made it, folks. This is the last week of the regular season. This time every year DYM likes to take a look back and celebrate the very best moves and movers of 2019. That’s right, folks, ITS THE 2019 DYM AWARDS!!!!!!!!
The DYM Award voting polls are NOW OPEN!!!
Every year we honor the season's Best Draft Values, Best Free Agent Pickups, and Special Ed’s top dumpster diver - The DYM MVP.
Now, without further to do, here are this year's nominees:
BEST PICKUP (best undrafted player)
DJ Chark - Chark was supposed to have been like the third WR on the Jaguars. Now he’s a top 10 WR and an every week fantasy starter.
Pats Defense - Pats D is the #14 player in all of fantasy. Their 196 points is more than every WR except Michael Thomas and Chris Godwin. They are solely responsible for all nine of Paul’s wins.
Mark Andrews - MAndrews is the #3 TE and a top 40 player overall. He could be an every-week starter for Team Meh in the playoffs.
Terry Mclaurin - The top rookie WR and week 2 pickup of the week.
BEST DRAFT VALUE
Lamar Jackson (8) - Lamar is the #1 fantasy QB by a lot. He's on pace to pass for 3000 and run for 1000 yards this year. Nobody’s ever done that ever. just bananas.
Russell Wilson (9) - Russell is the #2 QB which is great value for the 9th round.
Chris Godwin (5) - The #2 WR in fantasy was drafted in the 5th round. Too bad PHP couldn't capitalize on this draft steal.
Dak Prescott (12) - Dak is the #4 QB overall. Tobin drafted Dak as a backup QB. We don’t usually think it’s worthwhile to draft 2 QBs in this league, but it sure paid off this time.
Dave Fay - The reigning DYM MVP has harnessed the will of the Fantasy Gods. He’s been unbeatable the last few weeks despite averaging less than 100 points per game. He’s stayed afloat thanks to a plethora of scrappy pickups like Mostert, Crowder, Frank Gore, and Carlos Hyde
Russ Bernstein - Most moves in the league, 6 years in a row*. Drafted the #1 player of all time in the 8th round. Pulled off two big trades. And illuminated the mysteries of Fantasy Football Mythopoeia.
Fox News’ Mike Tobin - The new guy has made the 2nd fewest moves this year but has been a top contributor in the text chain, traded for a superstar WR and is a huge upgrade over [REDACTED].
Rob Schwartz - Second most moves. Best team name of 2019. All of his starting RBs are undrafted. Blockbuster trade in week 3.
*Rob tied us for most moves in 2017.
Big shout out to Crazy Sharon.
Credit where credit’s due- Jarvis was a great pickup for last week, and dropping Wentz must’ve been hard even though he doesn't look like the greatest keeper right now anyway.
They’re the second HOTTEST team coming into another crucial matchup in week 13. This team was under 100 points 5 weeks in a row (weeks 6-10), but they’ve really turned it on down the stretch. Their 152 in week 12 was the league-high score, and it elevated them above Dougy Tacos in the Whos Hot?! standings. Rob needs to win or have Doug lose to make the playoffs.
AMERICAS GAME OF THE WEEK!!!!!!!!!!!!!
SHARON ERTZ vs BRING IT ON HOME
AGoTW Prediction Record: 12-4
Its “Win and youre in” for Sharon Ertz!!!
Were gonna keep all these previews short and sweet. We don't wanna keep you guys from the holiday festivities or from the DYM Award polls.
Rob is still undefeated when Zach Ertz scores more than 10 fantasy points. The Eagles play Miami this week so it looks like this ones a wrap!!!
SHARON ERTZ WINS!!!!!!!!!!!!
I HAS NOTHING vs TEAM MEH
Meh picked up Wentz for that Miami matchup. That'll help, but if Carson gets benched they’re done for.
I HAS NOTHING WINS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
PICKLE RICKS vs PAT
Pickle Ricks could move up to third with a win. Paul is gonna roll over again this week cause hes locked in to the top 2 so it's basically an extra bye week.
PICKLE RICKS WINS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
PHP vs THE COMMISH
These two are playing for pride. But theyll also be taking notes, as they will likely face off again next week in the Constellation Tournament.
ALVIN & THESHITMUNKS vs DEFEND YOUR MOVES
This year were flexing Thanksgiving dinner time into the early time slot so the family can all gather around The Bills game at 4:30. Tobin and us each have a buncha guys going on Thursday, but we’re just giving thanks for not having to watch Bears Lions this year.
DEFEND YOUR MOVES WINS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
HAVE A HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYBODY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
