An Amobi Okoye autographed Texans mini-helmet goes to the winner in Week 2 of the HoustonTexans.com free fantasy football Home Team Challenge.
Our first tie of the season comes in the first week of the year as the "All Stars" and "BigHoustonHead" both scored 138 points for first place in the free HoustonTexans.com Home Team Challenge. Normally, to decide who wins the tiebreaker each week, we would go to the overall scores and see which team had scored more over the course of the entire season. But with this being Week 1, we have to take a close look at both of their scores and go in order of QB, RB, WR, etc., to see who scored more this week.
After further review of the lineups, both teams drafted QB Donovan McNabb (31 pts). But only one drafted RB Willie Parker (31 pts) to win the tiebreaker, and that team was the "All Stars." The "All Stars'" superb draft selections and draft day deals have rewarded him with an autographed football signed by DeMeco Ryans.
Don't forget to play this week for your chance to get your hands on an autographed Texans mini-helmet signed by Amobi Okoye.
In the Texans Celebrity League, Adam Wexler made a promise to his team this season…and that promise was not to wear a brown belt with black shoes. After his team called him out on this fashion faux paux prior to this weekend's game, Wexler was switching out his brown belt for a bedazzled black one in the locker room when a reporter asked how he thought his team was going to do this season. Wexler responded back, "I just need to score more points than Patti Smith. If I can do that, then I'll definitely be in good shape."
His "Wexler's Warriors" did just that this weekend as they scored 109 points in Week 1 of the Texans Fantasy Football Celebrity League to squeak by TORO's "Ballers" (108 pts) by one point. RB Brian Westbrook (21 pts), RB Adrian Peterson (17 pts) and QB Tony Romo (16 pts) all had solid performances to help Wexler claim the No. 1 spot overall for the first time in Celebrity League Fantasy Football history. Patti Smith started off her campaign for back-to-back championships with a third-place finish with 104 points.
Here are the top three overall standings after Week 1 in the Texans Celebrity League:
- Adam Wexler (Wexler's Warriors) – 109 points
- TORO (TORO'S Ballers) – 108 points
- Patti Smith (FSN Diva) – 104 points
