Thanks for the well wishes guys. I still can't believe I won, it's a surreal feeling. I still feel like a rookie to high stakes games, but I remember making it to the championship round of the NFFC about 5 or 6 years ago, and drafting in the same league as Team Legacy, thinking I would be crushed, and somehow making it to leading the field after week 14. I dropped to a finish of 8th that year, so tried not to get my hopes up this year after leading the 15th week.

Just want to do a shout out to Matt Waldman, whose upside down drafting strategy I followed pretty closely. You can see from my squad that I drafted a lot of the guys that he recommended on this site and on his rookie scouting portfolio blog (hits like CJ, Lynch, Hernandez, Bush, and Decker, as well as misses like Ingram, Harrison, Hardesty or Hill).

1.11 Calvin Johnson

2.2 Roddy White

3.11 Micheal Turner

4.2 Mark Ingram

5.11 Tom Brady

6.02 Marshawn Lynch

7.11 Aaron Hernandez

8.02 Rob Gronkowski

9.11 Michael Bush

10.02 Sidney Rice

11.11 Jermaine Gresham

12.02 Eagles D/ST

13.11 Donald Driver

14.2 Jerome Harrison

15.11 Montario Hardesty

16.2 Jason Hill

17.11 Stephen Gostkowski

18.02 Donovan McNabb

19.11 Terrell Owens

20.02 Eric Decker

Congrats Ron, I was in the same league as you (Commando Fro) and loved my team. It was fun seeing someone from my league win the whole damn thing. Impressive to say the least.
