dashins is probably a huge fan of Vincent Jackson right now, after he registered the third-highest player point total of the week with 28.35 points, leading to a 97.14 to 85.02 victory over Nate Placeholder. The winless 2008 Lions aren't role models, but no one tell that to Nate Placeholder. They have yet to crack the win column this year. Free fallin' like Tom Petty, Nate Placeholder suffered a significant drop in scoring from last week's 149.39 to 115.35 loss against Samuel's Team. Adding insult to injury, Nate Placeholder had a starter score zero points (LeSean McCoy). dashins (1-3, 407.95 points) climbs into ninth place and Nate Placeholder (0-4, 396.89 points) drops to the cellar.
