Was 3rd place taking on 2nd place team this past week, ended up hanging the most points scored in the league this season (143, 50 more than my team average) on the poor guy. Moved to 2nd place at 8-4; even better was the first place team (10-2) got rocked by the last place team (2-10). I'm playing the last place team this week and one of the dead teams (or maybe it's a draft challenge team and he can't make any WW moves since his team does not suck) week 14, but I'm not projected to win either game. We'll just have to see about that. Oddly enough the two teams that have a lock on the most points scored are in 6th and 7th place and are actively managed. They are very much still in the mix (records of 6-6) so I have to be careful not to let my playoff chances slip.
9-3. 2 seed as of now. I'm the only player still making moves. Looking good. My best moves were Hunt waiver nab, trading Cook for Russ Wilson the week before Cook was injured, Watson, Kamara, Fuller and Woods waiver nabs. Been streaming TE and DST all year after picking KC Def with 1st pick. It's been easy waiver pickings in this league, which kind of makes me feel dirty. My worst move was picking KC at 1.9. Always wait on your DST, dammit
My K and D have saved me over and over this season - both were waiver pickups. The ARod pickup could also be huge if he comes back for the playoffs - my QB slot has been terrible since DeShaun went down. Josh Gordon could also be a difference-maker. In fact if I had just skipped the draft and focused on waivers my team would probably look much the same.
Clinched the playoffs last week at 9-4 but played a clunker this week: I'm not even projected to top 40 points while my opponent should go over 100. I don't even have the points on my bench to kick myself over. Time for a mini-retool to get me through the playoffs.
I ended the regular season in 1st at 10-4, and was the highest scoring team by about 69 points (nice). I also had the lowest points scored against me. My all play record is 90-36. I made 26 roster moves to this point. Two other teams made 20 and 40.
I finished the season in 4th place with an 8-6 record, with an all-play record of 65-61, and with 25 roster moves (second to a team with 46 moves). My starting lineup only includes 2 players I drafted - and neither is my K or D, which I replaced long ago!
I play the #1 team this week and am a 25 point underdog. I was lucky to get this far and will need more luck to advance. My opponent's team has Brady, Gronk, and Gostkowski, so the Pats game could make or break him. My team has ARod and Jamaal Williams, so the Packers game could make or break me.
