Fading in wk17. Currently in line to be my lowest scoring week of the season at 133, with just Isaiah Mckenzie left. Not sure how far I'll fall in the standings, but definitely moving down rather than up.I'm in 16th place in the championship round heading into the final week, about 50 points out of 1st and 14 points out of 7th (the last money spot).QB - Trey Lance - SF/9 - $15

I made it through the regular season with big years from my two big money players, Justin Jefferson & Christian McCaffrey, plus a lot of starts from my extensive WR depth, and despite some picks not panning out I had enough going for me at each position to make it through thanks to very solid years from Goff, Jeff Wilson, and Gerald Everett.
The last 2 weeks have both been among my 4 best of the season, with 2 huge games each from Jefferson & Kittle, 1 each from Goff & Zay Jones, and at least 1 strong week each from McCaffrey, JuJu, and Pickens. Gano has been big too, and Zack Moss got a workload at just the right time for me (I was down to just him & CMC week 15 - no best ball for me at RB). I'm one of only 2 teams in the final with the Jefferson + Kittle combo, and the other was QBless last week.
McCaffrey & Goff came through but my great big WR corps did nothing. McCaffrey my only player to reach 40 receiving yards, and also with 1 of my 3 TDs. George Pickens led my WR corps in receiving yards with 29, and Jameson Williams in YFS with 40, though both are on the bench behind the more PPR-friendly stat lines of 3/24/0 and 3/20/0 from Zay & Romeo.
One other thing that did work is the Detroit Lions defense, who I picked based on their playoff schedule. 11 fpts against the Bears offense earns them their 2nd start of the 3-week championship round, after only starting 2 games for me through the first 14 weeks.
