Thu, Dec 08 CLE @ PIT

Rosters are locked. If anyone cares to bring it up next year, I'll consider allowing the rosters to stay open an additional week in 2012.

Well, the year started out so well for me. I was undefeated for a long, long time. But it's not how you start, it's how you finished and I limped into the playoffs in the Keeper league and almost made it in FFL2. Not bad, not bad.

Playoffs?! Playoffs?!

Whoa... bye week... I don't know what to do with myself on Sunday. Just watch RedZone without anyone to cheer for.

Maybe I should play some TF2 with ukick.

Go ahead and put me down for a vote. Playoff roster makes sense to me.

Ranked #4 in the keeper league, and miss the playoffs. Now that's a disappointment. GET ME OUT OF THIS DIVISION!

Playoffs have been clinched, though with the injuries I sustained this week I don't think I'm going far... I'm disappointed that Forte and A. Johnson just had to get hurt and give away the division, but those are the breaks.

Ok, I don't know where the hell I came from in the keeper league. I just set my roster each week but didn't pay much more attention given other things going on. From 0 and 5 (or whatever) to finish in a three way tie for first in the division at 6 and 7. Nothing like backing into the playoffs on tiebreakers with a losing record. Time to win it all!

That is completely ridiculous, by the way.

Yeah, GWJFFLK was weird this year with 2 out of 4 division champs having losing records. I've seen the #7 team get into the playoffs before but never both the #7 and #8. Lucky for you, you're in the 2010 NFC West.

So is there any incentive to set lineups if you have a bye in the playoffs? This is new to me.

You're still counted in the high scores on the right of the screen, so I'd say sure just to see where you stack up next to the potential competition in Round 2.

Hmm, looking through all the box scores, I haven't been as disruptive or handed the playoff berths to anyone. I have been fighting some medical issues, so I know I've been spotty at playing the waiver wire or even switching out players on bye weeks. I apologize if my actions (or inaction, rather) have disrupted anything, but from what I can tell I never had more than 1 player on my roster that had a bye.

Jeremy Maclin is traveling with the team, but is likely not playing tomorrow.

So I'm not one to gloat a lot (unless I've been drinking), but I snagged Antonio Brown in the Keeper draft for $1. I believe someone asked "who the heck is that?" (something to that effect) and my reply was "they believe he's special." I think this worked out in my favor.

Also, I kept Matthew Stafford from the previous year and his salary is only $6. Probably will be keeping him a bit longer. Well, depending on how much he rises.

And my $60 buy on MJD seems pretty smart, the $21 buy on Mark Ingram not so much. Benjarvus Green-Ellis @ $12 was a reach, but I needed another RB. I figured he'd be good for the first half of the season, but the man's still getting carries most weeks. That turned out pretty well.

Anyway, lots of interesting stuff if you go and look at the draft recap.

Okay, well, Maclin is active.

Kevin Smith is a no go for the Lions.

Ponder is starting for Minny. AP is out.

Josh Freeman will start for the Bucs.

Peyton Manning is inactive for the Colts.

I think I have to start Bowe against the Jets. I'm going nowhere in this consolation bracket.

Ugh, big FF let down. My team just sucked this week.

I'll still say my biggest let down was a few years a go, I was in 2 superbowls. Kurt Warner (Ari) was my Qb and he brought me to the promised land. After one series, they take him out of the game to be healthy for the playoffs. I lose both superbowls.

Demarco Murray's injury just made my life a lot easier in my non-GWJ league. It's a pay to play league and now I've won this game and guaranteed back the money I put back in. Kinda cool, but my opponent also had AP on the sideline.

As my dad says, he'd rather beat someone at full strength than a banged up team. Well, I can respect that, but in fantasy football I'm okay with winning because the other guy has too many injuries and not good enough depth. Especially when it's for money.

Jolly and I are going down to the wire. At halftime of the Giants/Dallas game, I hold a .7 point lead, he has Bailey, and I have Witten. One would think I hold the advantage, but Bailey has outscored Witten 6.9-4.2 in the 1st half. A Witten TD would be nice!!!!

*EDIT*
Big field goal by Bailey, now I'm down by 4.2 points............................. :-/

So, the big question: Can Marshawn Lynch get me 18.4 points tomorrow night. If yes, I move onto the next round of the playoffs. If not, Grumps does.

Wow. It all comes down to whether Steve Jackson can score 20 points against Seattle tomorrow night. If he does, I'm out. If he doesn't I'm in. Had to weather both Murray and Hasselback tonight, but MJD pulled off over FOURTY points all by himself. Crazytimes.

Ah, my season is over after losing to Grumps in ff league 2. Interesting, my "Draft Vick in the 1st round" strategy didn't go as bad as I'd have thought (there were a lot of disappointments in the first round), but the biggest mistake I made this year was, having the opportunity to draft Gronkowski and Hernandez, drafting Hernandez (thinking he'd get more receptions and yards which would make up the differences in TDs from Gronk).

That was a miscalculation.

I felt stupid drafting Romo over Schaub in the 3rd round in FFL3. Like 5 seconds after I did it when Schaub was picked next. But then he got hurt, so I lucked out.

Through the half, he has gotten a grand total of 4.2 points.

Unless he explodes with a TD or two in the second half, I think I am bowing out here.

I was down 12 points down with only the Seattle defense left to go. They promptly block a punt for a touchdown for a touchdown giving me some hope. Please, oh please get four more points.

edit: And, done. The Seahawks are my new favorite team.

Thankfully 21.3 was just enough to go over the top on that one. MJD had me scared though. That was a crazy day for him indeed.

Come on Lynch.

A 13 yard run/TD combo and I will be happy.

You have 4 minutes!!

Edit - Holy crap!! It worked!! Let me try that again!!

Come on Megan Fox and Angelina Jolie! Knock on my door holding a kiddie pool and a whole bunch of chocolate syrup and ask me to referee your naked chocolate wrestling rematch!!

Edit 2 - And with less than a minute and a half in the game, *two* of the playoff games changed leads.

Edit 3 - Out of the 4 games (in GWJ3), only one had a score differential of greater than 10. The rest are all under 2 points separating winner from loser.

Darn. High score in FFL3 on the bye.

Double-digits for all but Vernon Davis.

I'm not upset that I didn't win my GWJFFL1 consolation game (especially given that the Xenophobes posted the week's top score) as I didn't want to be responsible for him, as the #9 team, being relegation-eligible. Of course, he still has to win this week if KAOS wins so you're not out of the woods yes, Elliottx.

I'm not, on the other hand, happy with being knocked out of the playoffs at the very end of the week in GWJFFL3. I was in the lead until Marshawn Lynch broke off that 16-yard touchdown with 2:58 in the 4th.

GWJFFL2 was a solid victory but now I have to face the #1 Rat Pack who nearly broke 200 (194.2) for the second time this year -- a feat that has only been accomplished 4 times* in the 336 games/672 scores (not counting GWJFFLX) played so far.

Full results and new thread to be posted tonight.

I had 192.4 in week 1. If I'd played Jordy Nelson in my / over James Starks could have picked up 8 points. Wrong Packer, oh well.

Didn't realize it was so rare.

I coulda used some of those points at various times during the season
