Fantasy Football Forum

How did Week 16 go for you?  Did you win the Championship?  Third Place Game?  Toilet Bowl? 

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 two-week showdown.  I took the lead in the first week.  In the second week I got strong play from Drew Brees, Westbrook, Fitz, and Gates.  Awesome got nice balance from Romo, Turner, Pierre Thomas, Randy Moss, Welker, and Gonzo.  Minnesota D stunk it up.  Andre Johnson did for me, but I did enough to earn the W and the league championship.
Record:  7-7

LEV League - This was a Losers’ Bracket 7th place game for me.  Reggie Wayne got me off to a great start, but my opponent got an even better jump from Peyton Manning.  T.O. was solid for me on Saturday.  Philip Rivers and Stephen Gostkowski were awesome for me.  Housh and Ronnie Brown let me down.  LEV got strong play from Colston and Owen Daniels.  Roddy White, Hightower, MB3, and Tampa D did him in.  I won this one.
Record:  7-7

Fantasy Sports Depot League -  I didn’t make the playoffs and there was no Losers’ Bracket.
Record:  6-8

My Keeper League - Third Place game.  Peyton Manning got me off to a great start.  Jason Witten did the same for my opponent.  Fitz, Owen Daniels, Thomas Jones, Lynch, and NO D were solid for me.  Housh and Deion Branch were awful for me.  Kevin Smith was the only other solid scorer for my opponent.  Dan Orlovsky (Kurt Warner was his regular starter), Santana Moss, and Berrian sucked for him.  I took the Third Place game.
Record:  6-8

No Kicker League -  Third Place game.  Reggie Wayne got me off to a great start.  Baltimore D didn’t come through for my opponent.  Kurt Warner sucked real bad.  So did Dwayne Bowe, Cooley, and Jets D.  Fitz, Slaton, Benson, and Westbrook were solid, but they weren’t enough.  My opponent had Vincent Jackson, Michael Turner, Sammy Morris, and Clinton Portis.
Record:  11-3

Regular Season Record:  43-40
Playoff Record:  3-4
Titles:  1

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

    I won the championship in my league, but lost both championship games in my SportingNews leagues…but 2 runner-up trophies and 1 championship trophy ain’t all that bad.

    I took your advice and sat LT, and it gave me more points, but nothing I could have done would have given me the victory…my opponent would have won no matter what…but it is troubling that I had to sit my #1 draft pick in the championship game, and that will probably cause LT’s stock to plummet next season.

    LT could be a steal next year. One champ and two second place finishes is darn good.

    I won 2 in TSN 1st place. 1 2nd. and 3 bowl ringers.
    1 3rd, 1st and 5 bowl ringers in Yahoo. so it was a pretty good year for only watching one game and reading blogs, YOURS, to keep up!!!
