Post Re: So, did you make the playoffs?
I made the playoffs, have the 2nd best record in my league, but the best was another guy in my division, so Im a wild card.

QB Manning and Palmer

RBs Foster, Gore, J Stewart

WRs Calvin Johnson, Jordy Nelson, Victor Cruz, Vincent Jackson

TEs Vernon Davis and Greg Olsen

Kicker Hanson-Detroit

Defenses Pittsburg and Denver.


I picked up Jordy Nelson and Victor Cruz up off waivers, bith turned out to be studs. I started with Cutler and Matt Ryan at QB, but traded Ryan and Jennings for V Jackson and Eli.

It was a fun year for me, and I think Ill win my league, the guy ahead of me had Forte and Shaub, I play him this week, and while his back ups are pretty good, I think Ill win. My WRs are NUTS.

Post Re: So, did you make the playoffs?
in a league I don't care about I'm 9-4 after losing Forte & Fred Jackson (have Ray Rice but I'm done).

One league with friends I'm 11-1 but that one's boring, barely getting by without Peterson.

The one that I actually wanted to win I'm 7-5 on a 4 game losing streak. I had the 7th pick, drafted J. Charles, Megatron, Phillip Rivers, Reggie Wayne, and Dallas Clark in the first 5 rounds (it was before Manning had his 3rd surgery). One guy drafted Manning at 10 overall lol.

Best moves: Drafting Fred Jackson as my #4 RB, drafting Stafford late with the idea that I would trade him when he put up numbers after a few weeks

My worst moves: trading Stafford instead of Rivers for Roddy White early in the season, being aggressive on the waiver wire for the wrong people lol... Like E Sanders instead of A. Brown, Manningham instead of Cruz, D Thomas instead of D Murray.

Fred Jackson & Calvin Johnson carried the team for a while but Jackson's gone and CJ isn't producing like he should and I'm fighting for the 4th playoff spot. Oh, and my tight end just got suspended. So let's go Damien Williams, Spiller and Dustin Keller!

1st place at 10-3. 12-man league.

QB: Newton and Freeman
RB: Ray Rice, Beanie Wells, Michael Jenkins, Demarco Murray (previously Jonathan Stewart)
WR: Calvin Johnson, Brandon Marshall, Lost Kenny Britt to I/R, been rotating backups but right now Santana Moss & DHB
TE: Fred Davis and Vernon Davis
K: Cundiff
D: Varies

We have a flex player so I usually start 3 RB's along with my 2 WR's since I have good depth at RB.

I had the EXACT same TEs as you, I almost never picked the right guy each week, luckily my RBs and WRs made up for my bad line up at TE! Both are solid, but wildly inconsistent IMO.

Davis has been pretty solid down the stretch except for this past week. Luckily I had a bye since I was in 1st place.

Post Re: So, did you make the playoffs?
I play in 3 leagues.

In the first one I had no chance. Finished 9th of 12.

Second one, I was at 6th place this week and in position to make the playoffs. I started Peterson earlier in the week and forgot to adjust it. Heath Miller got me -1 points. I lost 120 to 121 and it dropped me out of the playoffs.

The one I'm in at work I've got 2nd place and a playoff spot.

Got creamed in the second-to-last round in my $$ league (dude had Calvin Johnson and Roddy White and my guys — like Eli Manning — had their worst week). Playing for third (which is still in the $). My fun league I'm in the championship. Figures.

Post Re: So, did you make the playoffs?
I had Calvin Johnson so I won, although I didn't really need him, won 140-62. I've pretty much dominated the league, 11-3, with about 200 more total points than the next person. Too bad all it takes is one bad week to lose it all. Worst part is I'm going up against AD next week.

Oh yeah, and the girl I'm playing knows hardly anything about football and I helped her draft her team. It's the perfect setup to lose.

I, surprisingly, made the championship game. I had Eli, who absolutely sucked, but Calvin and A Foster helped make up some of the slack. Helped that the guy I played had Forte (out) and Big Ben, lol. I beat him with my lowest scoring for weeks, 94-77. Ive been over 100 every week except 2, and this was his first week under 100 all season.

Now, Im wondering if I start Tebow over Eli. Tebow is a pathetic excuse for a QB, but he gets fantasy points every week???

I'm starting Tebow over Eli this week. Not that it means much. I should've started him last week.

Post Re: So, did you make the playoffs?
I'm starting:

QB: Cam Newton
RB: Ray Rice, Beanie Wells
Flex: Michael Turner
WR: Calvin Johnson, Brandon Marshall
TE: Vernon Davis
K: Janikowsky
D: Pitt

On the bench I have Santana Moss, Heyward-Bey, and Donald Brown who all had good weeks but the above has been my primarily starters. DeMarco Murray was a starter until I/R, as was Kenny Britt early in the season. Also lost Fred Davis to suspension. Never started Pitt but I figure their matchup is favorable against the Rams.

My only problem with Turner is it's a PPR league and he doesn't catch the football. I think I have it set right but willing to hear any opinions!

I think Ill start Tebow too, Eli vs the Jets could be bad. What 3 WRs would you start. Calvin, V Jackson, Cruz, and Jordy Nelson. I have Cruz on the bench cuz the Jets secondary is pretty good, but I see Jackson is nicked up a bit???

Tough call. I'd go Calvin, V-Jax and Nelson. Keep checking Jackson's practice reports. Cruz should be a decent play if it appears Jackson is at far less than 100% (Revis should be on Nicks). But, again, you're picking between four WR1s...so it's probably splitting hairs.

FYI:

Vincent Jackson - WR - Chargers

According to Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune, Vincent Jackson's groin injury has "not responded as well as hoped" to treatments from the Chargers' medical staff.

Acee, the best Chargers beat writer in the business, seems much less confident about Jackson's Week 16 status than the competing North County Times. "Might not," Acee wrote Friday in response to a Twitter question regarding V-Jax's playing status. "Game-time decision. Groin hasn't responded as well as hoped." Chargers-Lions has a 4:05PM ET start Saturday, so owners need to be preparing other options. Vincent Brown would get the nod if V-Jax can't go.

Post Re: So, did you make the playoffs?
Didnt want to start a new thread, but I entered a playoff FFL.
1 QB
2 RB
2 WR
1 TE
1 K
1 D

Can only pick 1 player per team. It was 5.00 a team, I bought 2 teams, and a total of 87 teams are in it. With just the SB to go, Im in 4th and 12th. BUT, I have 2 players on each team left. Brady and Cruz on one team (12th place) and Cruz and Gronk on the other team (4th place). Unless Gronk and Cruz dont show up at all, I made some money!!!!!!

Its tricky when only 1 player per team, gotta hit on plyers in the SB, luckily for me, most everyone went heavt New Orleans and GB, I went heavy 49ers and Giants.
