Well, we went with Week 18 stats for Bengals and Bills players in the Zealots leagues. They've officially updated the scores, and I came out ahead in the final game against a very, very worthy opponent, my dude nicknamed The Jackal.
I came from behind to win the championship based on Ja'Marr Chase's performance, a guy I traded up to get the year he was draft-eligible. This is a full IDP league, start nine on offense, nine on defense. Zealots PPR 24 Championship roster with main subs included.
QB Pat Mahomes
WR Davante Adams, Ja'Marr Chase, DK Metcalf, Christian Watson, Courtland Sutton, Allen Lazard, DJ Chark, Michael Gallup (I traded Terry McLaurin and George Pickens, who played on my team and were drafted or acquired by me)
TE Dallas Goedert, David Njoku
RB Miles Sanders, Ezekiel Elliott, Breece Hall, D'Onta Foreman, Jeff Wilson, Cordarrelle Patterson, James Robinson (I traded AJ Dillon, Khalil Herbert, and Isiah Pacheco, who played on my team and were all drafted by me)
DL Josh Sweat, Jonathan Greenard, Grady Jarrett, Zach Allen, Dorance Arsmstrong
LB Frankie Luvu, Drue Tranquill, Lavonte David, Jordan Hicks, David Long, Micah Parsons, Willie Gay, Monty Rice
DB/CB - Kamren Curl, Julian Love, Jonathan Owens (fiancé of Simone Biles), Marcus Jones, Damar Hamlin (yes, he played and started for my stupid -- by comparison to what he faced -- fantasy team Weeks 9-14. I was pulling for him right away to be okay.)
I'm really happy to have won it with this bunch. I'm not sure how we did it, but we led the league in overall scoring, PPG, tied for first in all-play, finished way ahead in potential/bench points, and finished 10-4 to get into the playoffs and then got some weird and welcome performances (Marcus Jones scored 51 points in the semi-finals) and Davante 30+ with Stidham in the final.
I'm thrilled. This is my third year since taking over this orphan, and they say it takes two and then you start competing. Well, we did that in every respect and won.
I'm happy. Peace.
