Fantasy Football Forum

How did Week 14 go for you?  Was it your first round of the playoffs or the last week in the regular season?

I’m in six leagues so I’ll recap each one.

KFFL Analysis League (PPR League) - I missed the playoffs in this league.  First time in a PPR league.  I’m not a fan of them, but if I am ever in another one, I’ll have a better feel for it.
Record:  6-7

Cage Match League (The Legend vs. Awesome) - LT got me off to a great start.  Antonio Gates didn’t catch a pass.  Awesome continued his run.  He was led by Turner, MJD,  Chris Johnson, Gonzo, and Thomas Jones.  Romo and Boldin were quiet.  I was led by Warner, AP, and Fitz, but couldn’t overcome Addai, Jennings, and Wayne.
Record:  7-7

LEV League - Philip Rivers got me off to a great start.  Steve Slaton had a nice game.  Reggie Wayne sucked again.  Kevin Boss did nothing.  I faced Brees, Fitz, Calvin Johnson, Thomas Jones, Pitt D, and Peyton Hillis, who all had nice games.  I faced the league’s top team, and it showed.
Record:  7-7

Fantasy Sports Depot League -  Philip Rivers smacked me around.  Andre Johnson, Frank Gore, and Michael Turner were solid for my opponent.  Aaron Rodgers, Calvin Johnson, and Slaton were solid for me.  I finished one of the highest scoring teams, but missed the playoffs.
Record:  6-8

My Keeper League - Gates didn’t catch a pass for my opponent.  Peyton Manning and Chris Johnson got me off to a great start.  Rob Bironas could have saved some point from last week.  Brees, Slaton, and MJD were solid for my opponent.  Fitz, Breaston, Santonio Holmes, and Thomas Jones put the playoffs within reach.  Derrick Mason triedto give me a scare, but I made it into the playoffs.
Record:  6-8

No Kicker League -  My opponent got big fat zeroes from Chris Chambers and Gates.  Kurt Warner, Fitz, Slaton, Bush, and Westbrook were great.  Reggie Wayne and MN D…not so much.  My opponent had Brees, AP, Ryan Grant, and Hillis. Lance Moore and CHI D did little.  I won this one big.
Record:  11-3

Weekly Record: 2-3
Season Record:  43-40

That’s how my weekend of fantasy football went. How did you do?

    I’m in four leagues:

    “GCSU Bobcats”: A dorm league. Top 4 advance out of ten teams, I finished 6th after Rivers, MJD, M. Lynch, Wayne, Coles, and D. Bowe didn’t do a whole heckuva lot combined.

    Record: 6-7

    “Backyard Football”: A league with guys from my church back home. I made playoffs last week, but then flopped because I benched Brian Westbrook (I forgot to put him in!) and had Justin Fargas going. Ouch.

    Record: 6-8

    “Warhols Darling Queen”: A SportingNews league, 12-team, and I got my butt kicked. On paper, this team (McNabb, AP, Hillis, Coles, Housh, Andre Johnson, Pittsburgh DEF/ST) is pretty good. But either matchups didn’t pan out, or I got outscored.

    Record: 4-10 (Yikes!)

    “Legends of TSN”: Another SN league. Finally! Something went my way!!!! Blessed with a roster that didn’t crumble (A. Rodgers, MJD, Addai/Sammy Morris (if Addai was injured), Roddy White, Housh, Isaac Bruce, Cooley, Pittsburgh DEF/ST, D. Akers at K), I’ve made playoffs in this 12-teamer.

    I’ll face the two seed (I’m #3) coming up

    Record: 9-4

    Overall record: 25-29 (I definitely prefer baseball!!!!!)
