Wild Card Week: 2008 Fantasy Football Pro Bowl

Welcome to the postseason edition of the Brew Crew Corner. A long season has come and gone, but there is still more fantasy and football to be played this season. If you didn’t win your championship, there is still a chance to get into some of the postseason challenges out there and end on a high note. We will also look at the Top 5 players for each conference by overall FPTs and the scoring trends over the past three seasons.

This is my second year featuring the Shark League Pro Bowl. In last year’s game, the NFC won 179-155. The Pro Bowl selection will be like the NFL, AFC versus the NFC. I selected the top players overall from each position and used the stats from Week 17. I set the lineup the according to Shark Leagues rules using Shark League scoring.

Here is the live scoring summery.
