FCW's Week 11 Fantasy Outlook (1/20-1/24)

(photo courtesy of Clarion athletics/Kirkland Photography)


Last week was about .500 for me in all my leagues. You win some, you lose some, and life goes on.

In our #MatScoutsDynasty league, I suffered my second straight loss of the season to drop my overall dual record to 8-2 (week 8 was a BYE week for all teams). The week came down to whether 125 Joey Fischer (Clarion) would win his match against Logan Heil (Cleveland State). If Fischer won, I lost. I was praying for a no-show.

Alas, Fischer weighed in, lined up, and won by Decision. I lost the week to The Ninnie's Propaganda (Earl Smith) 67-65. But it's ok, my team (Cael Chips) will be just fine. Every championship team has a down week or two, right?

To sound like a broken record, though, that's what I love about this aspect of Fantasy College Wrestling. No offense to Clarion and Cleveland State, but I was TUNED IN to the match where if Fantasy College Wrestling didn't exist, I probably wouldn't be.

Think of Fantasy Football. How many players on your team this year were from a rival organization? (Eagles and Cowboys, Steelers and Ravens, Washington Football Team and just about everyone else). Watching the Browns play the Jets becomes extremely important because of that running back you picked up off waivers last minute. Every point matters.

Fantasy sports has been credited as being one of the reasons for the increased popularity of football and the creation of RedZone (one of the most wonderful inventions of this century). Fantasy sports helps all involved by creating interest in not only the top teams like Penn State, Iowa, NC State, and Oklahoma State, but also the smaller programs like Gardner-Webb, Bucknell, and Utah Valley. It helps viewership of those programs. It creates the need to gain more information to which media outlets like InterMat, TOM, FloWrestling, etc., can benefit with articles and videos.

To me, it's the soil to plant the seeds for the new crop of wrestling fans. More to come on that later.


On to Week 12.

Another action-packed weekend awaits us, with 68 of 77 D1 teams in action and 18 of last season's Top-20 competing.

No real D1 action in tournaments this week, but if something pops up, you'll be the first to know (if you have those notifications turned "ON" that is).
