Fantasy Football Forum

How did Week 15 go for you?  Still fighting for the Championship?  Tearing up the Losers’ Bracket? 

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) - As this is a head-to-head league, this game is our Super Bowl.  It just worked out that we were both 7-7 heading into a winner take all showdown. Tony Romo, Slaton, MJD, Gonzo, T.Jones and Pitt D were solid for Awesome.  Boldin, Roddy White, and Marshall didn’t deliver.  Westbrook, Fitz, Jennings, and Gates weren’t the greatest for me.  Kurt Warner, AP, Steve Smith, LT, and Philly D gave me the lead in this two-week Championship.
Record:  7-7

LEV League - This was a Losers’ Bracket game for me.  Lance Moore did little for my opponent on Thursday.  Philip Rivers had a great game.  Reggie Wayne and Slaton were decent.  Housh, Ronnie Brown, Gostowski, T.O., Kevin Boss,and NE DEF weren’t great.  Dallas Clark did great for my opponent.  Favre, Adrian Peterson, and John Kasay were decent.  Kevin Walter and LenDale did nothing.  I lost this one.
Record:  7-7

Fantasy Sports Depot League -  Easily the weirdest fantasy football format I’ve played came to an end last week.  Points were rewarded for return yards.  Lots of them.  In fact, 60 returns yards were as much as a TD.  There was also IDP rather than Team Defense.  I struggled to grasp this league.  To top it off, there wasn’t even a Losers’ bracket.  If you’re setting up a league, at least give the guys who miss out the Toilet Bowl to keep them interested.  Otherwise it takes away from the guys in the playoffs as everyone else has no incentive to check the league site. 
Record:  6-8

My Keeper League - First round of the playoffs.  I drew the top seed.  Matt Forte got off to a decent start for my opponent.  I got blitzed.  My trade of Andre Johnson for Chris Johnson should help me next year as a keeper, as well as helping me go on a run to make the playoffs.  This week though, AJ made me pay.  I snoozed on Dominic Rhodes and my opponent plugged and played.  Reggie Wayne did well, which I predicted last week.  At least I was right.  Peyton had a nice game along with Thomas Jones and Rob Bironas.  Housh did nothing.  Neither did Fitz, Indy D, Chris Johnson, or Owen Daniels.  I got smoked. 
Record:  6-8

No Kicker League -  First round of the playoffs.  I’m the top seed.  Reggie Bush did little for me.  Unfortunately I faced Forte again and Colston.  I got blitzed.  Tyler Thigpen, Rhodes, Dallas Clark, and even Maurice Morris got me.   Roddy White was average for JP.  Warner, Wayne and Slaton were decent for me.  Cooley, Fitz, and Wash D sucked.  I got bounced.
Record:  11-3

Season Record:  43-40
Playoff Record:  0-3

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

    I only did one league this year (as you know I’m a baseball guy) – but I managed to do quite well despite an early trade of Bush for Eli (I figured I had Romo, who needed Eli?). Yeah, Romo and Bush both went down, but I was able to grab Cassel luckily.
    As for the playoffs, my league took the top 4 teams and paired them for two 2-week playoff rounds. The first round of playoffs just ended with me emerging victorious (mostly thanks to Cassel and and Vincent Jackson). I now play the #1 team in the entire league…and according to the lines I’m a heavy, heavy underdog!

    Gonna roll with them again against Wash CK.
    Chris – nice grab of Cassel. the lines are usually way off. Take down that Giant Chris.

    In the 4 leagues that I made the playoffs, I advanced to the championship in 3 of them…the other one I went up against Pierre Thomas and Dominic Rhodes…I didn’t stand a chance. I will finish either 3rd or 4th out of 12 teams in that league, which is still pretty good in my book.

    Both of my non-playoff teams lost in consolation bracket games, bringing them to 7-8 (I didn’t think about my leagues had consolation brackets, thus killing my “no teams under .500″ theory…I still have a chance to pull it off but it looks bleak)

    Brad. the records don’t carry over into the playoffs so you’re good. Nice job advancing in three leagues. Good luck this weekend.
