Players Who Sucked This Week

Football

The Atlanta Falcons historic collapse. That is all.

Hockey

Antti Raanta, Steve Mason, Jared Coreau all have one thing in common with January 31 – losing and giving up too many goals. Jean-Francois Berube was just as bad, but on Saturday night.

Mike Condon gave up 11 goals in three games, defeating the Lightning because Vasilevskiy let five go by.

Frederik Andersen started out the week rough by giving up three goals on eight shots, and couldn’t get back on track with his 16 allowed in the next three games. Shout out to Curtis McElhinney for also giving up three goals to start the week, then never making another appearance.

That kinda week for the Leafs.

That kind of week for the Leafs.

Tuukka Rask ended the week with a .789 SV% which makes him the worst of the week in that category. To put salt in the wound, he was pulled in Saturday night’s contest halfway through the 2nd period after four goals given up on 14 shots.

Devan Dubnyk averaged 4 GA in two games, splitting the contests with a win and loss. Ryan Miller one-upped him by allowing an average of 5 per game, and lost both. Sergei Bobrovsky is a nice mix of both, with 4 GAA and two losses.

Kari Lehtonen started the week off quite well, but gave up four in each of his last two games to finish the week 1-2.

 

Basketball

Domantas Sabonis started off decent going 5-11 from the field (but almost fouling out), then made two of his next 21 shots, which includes missing all five three-point attempts.

"...but I swear I'm shooting for the hoop!"

“…but I swear I’m shooting for the hoop!”

Cameron Payne wasn’t too hot coming off the bench, with a FG% of .258 and 3P% of .200.

Patrick Beverley was not a scoring threat this week, averaging 32 MPG and only taking 26 shots, eight of which went in.

Trevor Ariza was atrocious against the Hawks, shooting 1-12 from the field (1-10 3P). He was slightly better in his other two games.

Iman Shumpert looked more like Slumpert this week shooting 5-18 from the field, including 4-14 from long range.

Shumpert....Slumpert

Shumpert….Slumpert

Monta Ellis was just off this week – .250 FG%, 0-2 three-pointers, .444 FT%. That’s all.

 

Players Who Sucked Again

None since I let them off the hook last week due to the All-Star “games”. And me being lazy.

 

Dishonorable Mentions

Caris LeVert shot great in his first game, but then went 1-9 against the Pacers. But does it really matter when you’re on the Nets?

Arron Afflalo didn’t necessarily suck this week, but you can’t say you’d want him on your starting fantasy roster when you look at his last three games.

Justin Holiday was up-and-down this week, following up a horrible shooting performance with a good one. He ended up with a .333 FG% and .250 3P%.

Thomas Greiss played well in his first game, but gave up five in each of his final two games.
