The Diary of a Fantasy Virgin Week 16

Happy New Year!  This brings about the end of the Fantasy Football portion of your programming.  The Virgin will be around for some playoff and prognostication.  All of it will be from my heart.  But that is the norm when you write for the best Fantasy Football site on the web.  That means we must canvass the week that was.  Its week 13 and you are battling for 7th place.  Oh the misery.  But still play it straight up.  Go with the guns.

The Big Late Guns

The end of the Fantasy Football Season brings insight into next year.  I really don’t hold on to this information because I play the role of “Virgin” quite well.  Every year I impersonate a newbie.  A rookie and with the use of guile and this website try to work through the year.  It is a testament to my “forgetfulness” that makes my article work.  So I do not deviate from the format.  And now this brings me to the end of another year and some big late guns.  Like that QB for Jacksonville David Garrard.

The Late Season Push

David had a combined point total of 1 point from week 1 to week 11.   And then by week 14 he had 24 points and by the Fantasy Playoffs, he had 18 and 21 points weeks 15 and 16.  This was enough to make a respectable starter out of nothing.  That is from zero, zip nada my friends.  So, in the end, the year ended as it began with a push.

The Push

I really hate being .500!  I really do.  But that is my tale of woe this year.  With fine performances by David Garrard and the Patriots resurging Defense, the virgin ends the year with an 8-8 record.  I can’t possibly imagine a stranger outcome.  At most, I was 3 games under .500 … TWICE!  At best I was .500 … TWICE!  What a weird year.  The person who won the whole league won with players that you could NOT name at the beginning of the year.  So this is what makes Fantasy Football fun.  Parity in the NFL has lead to Parity in Fantasy Football.  As usual, the Virgin will be here to report the latest misgivings of the Fantasy Football meanderings.  Next week — the prognostication.

Happy 2006!  May the New Year Bring you Peace and Happiness.
