The winner of this week's Home Team Challenge will take home an autographed picture of linebacker DeMeco Ryans.
The moons were aligned, the temperature was just right and it was after Daylight Savings time, which meant the conditions were just right for "BigRed" to have the perfect game. "BigRed" scored 150 points in Week 10 of Houston Texans Fantasy Football, mainly with the help of 31 points from quarterback Kurt Warner, 28 points from running back Adrian Peterson, and 23 points from tight end Tony Gonzalez.
An autographed mini-helmet signed by Texans defensive tackle Amobi Okoye now belongs to "BigRed".
A picture signed by Texans linebacker DeMeco Ryans will be up for grabs in Week 11.
Even without wide receiver Steve Smith accounting for any of the points for Lance Cavazos' "Dunder Mifflin" in Week 10, his team was still able to rack up 139 points and a first place victory in the Texans Celebrity League. "Dunder Mifflin" started off on the right foot as quarterback Jay Cutler (35 pts) and tight end Kellen Winslow (21 pts) combined for 56 points on Thursday night, giving Cavazos' team the early lead going in to the weekend.
Those two performances were complemented by great games from running back Maurice Jones-Drew (27 pts), wide receiver Anquan Boldin (22 pts) and DST Ravens (18 pts). KHOU/Channel 11's Butch Alsandor's "Saints" finished in second place with 124 points and Nick Scurfield's "Scurfs Up!" of HoustonTexans.com finally cracked the weekly top-three, as well as the overall top-three, with 123 points.
Brooke Bentley and Adam Wexler have been knocked out of the top-three for now, and Matt Jackson is back to his winning ways taking over second place. Scurfield sneaks in to the top-three for the first time this year.
Here are the standings for the top-three spots in the Celebrity League:
- TORO (TORO'S Ballers) – 974 points
- Matt Jackson (Unbeatable MJ) – 959 points
- Nick Scurfield (Scurf's Up!) – 951 points
