First round bye in both my big money leagues. Would like to give a big shout out to Jackson and Patriots defense.

yeah i should've stuck with SF.  some of the worst tackling ive ever seen.

I had SF as well.  One defense ranked #2 for the week, the other mid 20's.  I get it but it's why I always hesitate to chase marginal, soft defenses with matchups come playoff time.  Been burned a lot - several times by the Eagles btw.  I'm going against Brees and Thomas next week so need 49rs to play tough no matter what.  Didn't think I'd start them over Eagles vs Giants at home but here we go.  All in with the team who helped get me here.

I have 1 of 3 teams not making the playoffs and it started the year with FBGuys rating it 99% chance to make playoffs with good management. Injuries, scoring system (TD League) have cast an underachieving cloud over it for most of the year. As bad as it’s been, I still had the chance to make playoffs at 7-6 with a win this week. It started on Thursday with the missed XP & FG’s by YoungHoe, the easy TD drop by Cook and it just got worse with Ronald Jones being Bruce Arians’d. The last dagger was Fuller’s drop which would have gotten me within striking distance for Lockett to perform a little MNF magic. This season was not meant to be for what looked to be a world beater after the draft:kicksrock: 

Good Luck to all of those still in the hunt, may MNF magic bless all FBGuys tonight!

Hello all,

I need some advice.  This my first time playing fantasy and if this isnt the forum for this question just let me know.  I want to know if it is a good thing to strengthen my bench by dropping  Jamaal Williams and grabbing Darrius Guice for the playoff run our playoffs are weeks 15 and 16.  If this is the place I can share the line up I have worked my ### off to build...

Looks like the Seahawks' method of running out the clock at the end got me the last two Harrison Smith tackles I needed to sneak into a 1st round bye, flipping a close loss to a close win!

Now I have to sweat till Thursday AM stat corrections to make sure!

First in points, missed the playoffs. Team who was last in points(300+ points less) made the playoffs. Fantasy football is random. 

Oh well, watch, I'll outscore all the playoff teams the last 3 weeks too. At least I'm in the top-700 in DFS. Maybe get lucky there.

Congrats to everyone who made it.

If i actually checked sunday morning which i thought i did that Tate was out my only other option put up 20 points and I would win this week no problem and get a bye..

Now I need to sweat out a Monday night game for 14 points  .....  I most likely will lose 😡

 

Thanks little baby Jesus

2nd highest in points in my longtime redraft, missed the playoffs by losing by two points last night. Pretty much knew it was gonna happen early on, started out 0-4 playing the highest point scoring team each week. Them’s the breaks. :kicksrock:

Have a bye this week in 1 league so naturally my idle roster is blowing up: Brees, Winston (superflex), Aaron Jones, Diontae Johnson, ARobinson, Waller, Butker, Steeler D.

Looking foward to the collective bed-crapping next weekend, where I'm likely facing Zeke, CMC, Mostert, Cooper, Diggs and Godwin

If I’m reading this right, is this one of the last leagues out there not using decimal scoring?  Might have made a difference either way.

Still, tough loss.  Those silly close ones are ones you remember forever.

I joined a seemingly longtime no-decimal this year and have not done any numbers cracking, but I won a game by one and can't help but think I should have lost. 

On another note, in my favorite league, Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray killed me in a Superflex. I not only missed the playoffs by a seasonal two points (yes, 1779-1777) but in the consolation bracket I raced out to a breakneck place only to see it ground to a halt by another suspect Murray performance. He hasn't been that bad, but he and Baker were not 1.12 and 2.01, respectively. That I sniffed the playoffs was a testament to late round drafting of Godwin, Robisnon, Jacobs, White, Waller, and others, but not the full-blown ### that went Baker, Murray, Damien Williams in the first three.

Pretty maids all in a row? Oof. 

:ptts:

Your draft stunk, guy.

Thought I was going to sail to the next round with my 1st round bye...............................

But I saw my chances for a title go down considerably with Evans and Ridley likely out for the remainder of the year.

I wonder if Lamar Jackson can catch passes for me to go along with being a QB1 and a RB1?

Shark League 20 years strong--never won.  Finally, through some great trades to desperate teams entered week 14 with this roster and feeling good:

P. Mahomes, C. McCaffrey, M. Ingram, D. Adams, M. Thomas, T. Kelce, GB D/ST vs WAS....  Lost to the 8th place team.  

Everybody says "stick with your studs--they can overcome matchups", but this loss is move evidence to the contrary, with guys like Tannehill and Ridley on my bench.

You are a fickle mistress fantasy football.

There are two instances where "stick with your studs" is bad advice.

After the opening weeks of the fantasy season when it's clear your perceived studs are no longer studs any more.

And during the fantasy playoffs.

With the Ridley injury in my 'waivers locked for the playoffs' league, I take a long look down my short bench and see my remaining WR is Brandin Cooks.  Will Cooks beat the zero that Ridley will put up?  Can't wait to find out.

Come on Brandin....sheesh.

I thought I was lucky to find both Guice and Penny on my waiver wire last week.  That worked about as well as me starting Mahomes over Winston.

Went up against a 7-6 team. 

They had Winston, Mixon, Ekeler, Golladay, Singeltary, Lutz, Kittle...

He scored 214 points. The most by a team all year long. He was projected for 120. 

 

Im at 136 and have Jeffrey tonight. I was also projected for 120 points. 

One and out unfortunately. 🤯

I'll do you one better...

Had Hill and Williams and a 15 point lead against Kelce and Keenan Allen that Monday night.  After my 1.3 points on that night I lost by a wide margin.  Two weeks later, on Monday night I'm down by 0.2 points and I have Lockett and my opponent is done.  Lockett goes for Zero.  Lose by 0.2 points.  Last night, I'm down by 12 and have Alshon Jeffrey and...you know the rest.  Any win in any of those games and I make the playoffs.  If my house doesn't burn down this coming Monday night I'm going to consider myself lucky.

Brag - Undefeated 13-0 and league scoring leader headed into League Final in Dynasty this weekend. Roster has likes of L-Jax, Conner, A. Jones, Hopkins, M.Thomas, Diggs, E.Engram (No Start TE just TE Premium in Flex spots) Multiple IDP's in top 10 at their position. Trades early on has netted me the 1.01 and 1.02 in rookie draft next year. 

Vent - Ljax, Conner, Engram, AJ Green, Hockenson, Everett, JJ Watt all dinged up or been dinged up for weeks, because its dynasty wanting to hold many of those assets and fill holes where possible. If Ljax cant go I may have to start D.Carr....eesh. 

Hopefully still win title, just may limp there in the end...

In 2 semifinals, one with Brees and one against Brees.  Could find myself needing a very specific score from him on Monday night.

• IDP league - #1 seed, playoffs this weekend against a team that just lost Mike Evans, Marvin Jones & maybe Jared Cook.  My team is finally healthy. Hopefully I’m lucky as well. 

• Dynasty League, just missed the BYE (by 3.4 points) but won week 13 playoff, headed into this weekend with 23.6 from Mark Ingram. 
 

it’s been a good year. With a little luck I’ll make the LCG in both of my leagues. 
 

I hope everyone’s playoffs are going well. Go get em!

12-2 season, second-highest scoring team on the season. Decided to start Tannehill over Wilson. Should have known better.

Always start your studs!

I had to choose between Woods, Lockett, and Drake.  Guess who I chose.

0-4 today my worst semi-finals day ever.

And just for kicks I had $250 on the Redskins +6.

Feeling pretty good in both leagues

- 1 league I have a 69 point lead (nice!), opponent has Drew Brees

- 1 league I have a 26 point lead, with Brees and the Steeler D.  Opponent has Josh Allen, Lutz, and Saints D.

Would be nearly impossible not to win at least one of them. (Brees would have to score 70+, and then Lutz and the NO defense would have to outscore the Steeler defense by 26 more than Brees scored)

After facing the duo of Carson and CMC I am down 16.5 with Pascal going tonight.  Need to get a stat line of something like 6/80/1.  Think my odds are fair as Indy is going to have to chuck it to keep up all night.

My opponent played Lamar on TNF who scored 47 points.  At one point in the early Sunday games I was losing something like 78 to 12.  Then the massive comeback started and I pulled out a victory!  Shout out to these guys:  Tannehill, Zeke, Mostert, DJ Moore, OBJ, Ertz, M. Williams, NE D

:lol:
