I was 2-7 in my auction league and started trading higher-priced guys that I wouldn't have kept for 2019(Newton, TY Hilton) for lower cost upside guys that I can hold for multiple years.

So of course since then I'm on a 4-game winning streak and have a shot at a tiebreaker for the last wildcard spot. 

And I’m up against Adams, Edelman, Gronk & Kelce. It was a run

Cannot get streaming defenses right. Went with Denver and instead they are rolling over like dogs. Needed a boost to make up for Fournettes stinker and OBJ being out.

Was hanging in there despite a sub par week. Then George Kittle happened. It wasn't a good year.

I played against Cooper in the game I wouldn’t have won anyway, and dodged him in the league where I scored just enough to win. Side note, I don’t think I’ll ever let anyone else in my leagues own Nick Chubb ever. That guy makes me like watching Browns games

Traded away T.Y. Hilton and Ebron a few weeks ago in a package to get Tom Brady, just as Doyle was coming back. In hindsight that trade ended my season. Brady was great yesterday but I also had Prescott and woulda won if I had T.Y. Andy ebron still. I don’t normally make trades and there’s a reason why.

As of the start of the 4Q of the DAL-PHI game, I was down 141 to 125, my opponent was playing Zeke and Boyd, and I had Big Ben on the sidelines with a rib injury, along with two other players, on of them was struggling at the time.......didn't look good for me......

But the other two players I had were Dak Prescott and Amari Cooper!  By the end of the DAL-PHI game, after 3 hookup TDs....I was winning 200-150.  Outscored my opponent 75-9 in the final hour and change.

Thanks Dak for pulling your head out of your a$$ and getting it to Cooper, even though the last game winning TD was total luck.

On to the semifinals to face the #1 seed and his stacked team (Brady, R Wilson, Gurley, Evans, Hill, Smith Schuster)

Went in to the playoffs as the #3 seed. Started the season 1-3 and finished the regular season 8-5. (Superflex League). 

Yesterday my team put up its lowest point total of the season...96 points, when I averaged 155. 

Unreal how the playoffs go with injuries and off weeks by ‘studs’. 

 

On to to next year!

Got my main league to add a doubleheader week so that we could have a week-16 championship.

After getting great scores from CMC, Julio, Landry and Kittle this week, and with Tyreek and maybe Ware nicked up, I predict that my team's traditional week-14 bed-crapping will now knock me out in the semifinals instead of the quarters.

I just have a sick sense that Kittle and especially Landry are going to come crashing back to earth.  Really hoping Tyreek can go, and that Gordon comes back for the Chargers.

Went undefeated this season with Goff, Gurley, and Cooper Kupp. Have a bye week this week, first round of playoffs. After the Rams #### the bed last night my team scored the fewest points   All season! Luckily it’s a bye week!

Vent for one of my league mates - led the league in scoring by a wide margin.  Had the #1 QB (Mahomes), #1 RB (Gurley), #1 WR (Thielen - dropped to #3 WR after this weekend) and #1 TE (Kelce) on his roster (first time I can ever remember that happening in the 26 year history of the 12 team redraft league).  Just lost a playoff game to the #7 seed who really only had Brady and Westbrook.  Just one bad day for multiple players  at the wrong time and now the playoffs are  a crap shoot.

Had the highest scoring team in a 16 team IDP/ppr (.5 RB/1 WR/1.5 TE) Dynasty league. My roster featured:

Rodgers, Gurley, A.Jones, M.Thomas,Hopkins, Diggs in my line-up and IDP players all top 5 In their respective positions. 

Lost in Semi-final this week as nearly all my studs had meh games.....sometimes I hate this game..

Highest scoring team in a 2 conference 24 team league - I had more than a full week's points on the 2nd place team.  Average weekly points of 140+ vs. a league average of 95+ or so...I had Brees, Gurley, Conner, Peterson, Kelce, AJ Green, and Golladay as my ideal line-up, and Zeurline at K, and Denver/Jax at Defense....Bench had guys like C. Sutton, Larry Fitzgerald, Frank Gore, and some other lesser guys...Basically got a bomb dropped on me in the 1st week of the playoffs (last week) when I lost Conner, Green, and also Greg Olsen who was on my bench...then I flexed Sutton, started Fitz and Golladay, who put up garbage, and Gurley did the same.  Put up a whopping 55 points and was out.  Unreal.

12 man, half point ppr re-draft league. 

I have drafted and amassed what is almost an undefeatable team. 13-1 in the regular season. 

Hopkins, Julio, Thielen in the 1st 3 rounds. 

Miller and Conner in the middle rounds along with Kerryon. 

Amari Cooper and Golladay were also drafted. 

During the season I attained Carson and Chubb and traded Golladay for Fournette during Fournette’s injury to try and mitigate for if Bell ever came back. 

QBs - Lamar Jackson, Winston 

RBs - Conner, Fournette, Chubb, Kerryon, Miller, Carson 

WRs - Julio, Hopkins, Thielen, Cooper 

TE - Hooper 

K - Dallas kicker 

DST - streaming 

my biggest problem each week is who the hell to play ! 

Cooper hasn’t started a game for me. Likewise Carson and Miller hasn’t started in around 6-7 weeks. 

And yet it still all comes down to some luck over the next two weeks. 

I have feeling that the most dominant team I’ve ever created will stumble near the final hurdle 😂

My team looked great just a few weeks ago (except for RB2) - we start 1QB ,2RB ,2WR ,1TE ,1FL ,1K ,1D

Starting lineup was this:  C. Wentz, E. Elliott, whatever RB2 I could find,  AB, OBJ, Z. Ertz, Bears, Zurelein, and one of K. Golladay/E. Sanders in FLEX.

Now nearly everyone is injured or affected by an injury:  looks like C. Wentz might not play which affects Z. Ertz.  Elliott is Q.  AB has Ben with bruised ribs.  OBJ is Q. E. Sanders is on IR and K. Golladay is not very trustworthy right now.

I finally got a decent RB2 late in the season, but its S. Ware who is Q, of course.

:lmao:

Guys I'm likely starting this week who scare the bejeezus out of me due to either injury, matchup or likely regression after nice scores in week 14:

  • RB: Gordon or Ware (or Frank Gore if neither of them is healthy enough)
  • WR: Tyreek
  • WR: Landry or Westbrook
  • TE: Kittle

Oh and now Juilo is Q with a foot injury. Joy.

# 1 team in my league all season (ended up with # 1 seed).  Unfortunately 2 of my RBs were Hunt and Conner and my QB was Wentz.  I play my brother in the first round of the playoffs this week without a prayer in hell of winning (and I would have destroyed him).  I really hate fantasy football.

Crazy to think I should have started Dixon over Justin Jackson in my flex and Pettis over Tyreek in the semi's of my playoffs but i should have.

13-1 in the regular season and going up against Williams and Mahomes.  Happens to me every single year when the playoffs start.  Can't wait to be done with fantasy football next year.

Well, Kelce didn't hurt me TOO badly - at least he stayed out of the endzone.  Would have liked a couple figgies from Butker tho.

Me too. Though I play against him in a third league, so I guess there's that.

Started both Keenan Allen and Tyreek Hill in two leagues.  One opponent flexed Damien Williams, and the other flexed Mike Williams.  And to top it all off, Mahomes decided that this would be a good week to have his worst game all year.  

#1 seed in both leagues, and I'm cooked... :kicksrock:

Have Gordon. Picked up Ware several weeks ago just on a whim, passed on Justin Jackson at the time.  Someone else subsequently got him.

Then I was able to get Damien Williams a few weeks ago, but after Ware looked pretty good, I dropped him last week for Darrell, speculating that (a) Ware and/or Gordon would carry me through the playoffs and (b) Darrell sounded like a better/younger keeper prospect for 2019.

Tried to get Damien back this week after Ware got hurt, but of course I got sniped.

Funny thing is that semi-finals week for as long as I can remember have been about surviving not thriving and this year appears to be no different.

I am the 4 seed playing the 1 seed  (second and 3rd highest scoring teams in the regular season and last week in the quarters we were the only 2 teams to score over 100).

But both his team and my team have tough matchups across the board and are likely to wind up with scores in the low 80s.

Meanwhile the other side of the bracket features the 6 vs 7 after two upsets in the quarters.  Those 6 and 7 teams are horrible on paper but based on good matchups this week both of those teams will be in the 100s.

Playoffs all come down to luck of the draw.  I am better off playing the #1 seed then I would have been playing the 6 or 7.  On paper.
