Two touchdown runs of more than 79 yards in one game. That's the stuff of legends. Frank Gore carried off this amazing feat against the Seahawks last week, and of course led most fantasy point leaders with 37 for me this week.

Andre Johnson had 27, and Darren Sproles contributed with 21. I hardly needed Roy Williams, Santana Moss, Heath Miller,J ason Hanson and the Eagles defense, but they all kicked in a few points. Oh, I forgot about Kurt Warner passing 24 for 26 and an NFL record performance.

NFL Mikee's Molemen won in week two to move to 2-0 with 122 points.

We will tweak this team ever so slightly this week. Added to the starters this week will be Kellen Winslow, who is averaging more points than Heath Miller, and Muhsin Muhammed who is ahead of Santana Moss.

Moving on to team two, the TWO Wreckers, squeezed out a win with 72 points. Tom Brady and Randy Moss had a rough week, however Adrian Peterson had 16 points and all players made contributions.

Brady had eight, Jason Hanson had eight, the Steeler defense, Vincent Jackson with 20, Kevin Smith with seven, Heath Miller, and Randy Moss all helped out. This team is also 2-0.

This week we will use Matt Schaub who has an easier team to play than Tom Brady. Other than that this line up will remain intact.

Team three, NFL Mikee's Maulers who won by 2 points last week, somehow got their scoring adjusted by Fox Sports. They ended up with 112.2 instead of 114.2 and Fox e-mailed me some technical jargon on how to check the scoring.

They gave me a loss, when I was ahead of my opponent at weeks end. Our score was tied at 112.2 after they stole 2 points from me. I have serious issue's with Fox's scoring now.

Anyway this week, they won, so I am now at a protested 1-1. Drew Brees led this team with 28.4 points, followed by Desean Jackson with 17.6. Jackson was injured and will be replaced with a waiver pick.

Jeremy Macklin was dropped from this team and will also be replaced with another wide receiver. My tight end, Zach Miller, got blanked, but Ryan Grant scored 10.8 points. Westbrook threw in 6.6, plus my kicker Robbie Gould with six. The Tennessee defense had a bad day with -1.

I am revamping my wide receiver corp on this team. Jackson is hurt, and I was not happy with him anyway. My three waiver pick-ups will hopefully be Steve Smith of the Giants, Kenny Britt who impressed me in Pittsburgh, and Antwaan Randle El. I am also adding Brent Celek to this line-up.

Team four on ESPN, The South Florida Tarpons, who lost last week, had some changes made. Player's were dropped and free agents were picked up. This improved team won this week.

Starting line-up included Trent Edwards, DeAngelo Willaims, Willis McGahee, Frank Gore, Hines Ward, Antawaan Randle El, a free agent pick up, John Carlson leaving the bench after last week, the 49er defense, and Neil Rackers.

The bench has Matt Forte, Clinton Portis, Steve Breaston, Kyle Orton, Jerious Norwood, and Michael Jenkins.

The starters scored 112 points this week, which got them to 1-1. Matt Forte is only averaging five points, and will remain on the bench this week.

Team five, also on ESPN, The Fort Myers Mustangs, who tied last week, also won in week two. This team only scored 60 points, but somehow got a win. They are at 1-0-1.

Joe Flacco will start at quarterback, and I expect Steve Slaton to get it going this week also. Cadillac Williams will come off the bench, and replace Westbrook, mainly because he is averaging more points. Plus Westbrook has a questionable ankle.

Jeremy Cotchery will start, along with Tony Gonzales, Randy Moss, Justin Gage, the Ravens defense, and Mason Crosby.

Team six, The LaBelle Cowboys, who I like as a team. lost again. This is the only loss I suffered this week. I still like this team however.

Darren Sproles led the points with 20, followed by Kurt Warner with 17. Fred Jackson did well with 16 and Steven Jackson had 11. Ryan Longwell also had 10 points. The Packer defense got a few, and Chris Cooley scored eight.

Larry Fitzgerald scored 9 and Hines Ward had five points. The only reason these guys lost was they went against Chris Johnson's amazing day and 45 points. That pretty much fried my tomatoes. These starters will go again next week.

Finally we come to team seven, The North Fort Myers Warlocks, won again this week. they are 2-0 with a score of 111 in week two.

Frank Gore led all, scorers with 35 points, followed by Darren Sproles with 20 points.

Kurt Warner had 17, Percy Harvin had 11,. and Larry Fitzgerald had nine. Thomas Jones threw in five, and the Jets defense scored six. Rob Bironas, the kicker had eight points. My tight end was blanked, Zach Miller, and he has been dropped.

To take his place I will try to grab Brent Celek. Also I am dropping Kevin Boss, and adding  Heath Miller.

Well, it was a success this week with six out of seven teams winning.

Hope you have a great fantasy Sunday.
