Post Hows your team(s) doing?
You sailing into the playoffs, or would you rather forget this strange fantasy season?

I have not done as well as usual, my money team is barely squeaking in, but that is only because Im in a bad division this year, last year it was by far the best division. 6-5-1 magic number is 1, but the team at the top of the league is a monster, nobody is beating him.

This has been a great season for me, in my worst league I'm tied for third with a 0.500 record(!). In my other leagues I'm quite far ahead and will make the playoffs in all of them.

1st place with a 9-3 (about to be 10-3) record in my money league. Lead the league in scoring. 4 trades, 23 acquisitions.

2nd place in division in my other league with a 7-5 (about to be 8-5) record. Lead the league in scoring but I don't know if I'm going to make the playoffs. 3 trades, 18 acquisitions.

I've been maneuvering my @ss off.

First-round bye in my money league.

Sneaked into the playoffs in my other thanks to my opponent THIS week beating the guy I needed him to beat LAST week. Now I'm up by about 30 points going into tonight. He has Murray. I have Dez.

I made it in my money league, at 7-5-1 but lost this week so I'm going in at 7-6-1, but my week one opp is projected to lose to me so we will see.

Just squeaked in tonight in another at 7-7, but it's been a hard luck 7-7 as I am a higher scoring team than the top team whose at 11-3, I have gotten every ones best almost every week. That has a small money prize.

Than the one I run with some on this board I will fall to 8-6 on a 3 game loss streak , but I'm still in. And I think I have the best team.

I just looked and in my money league I scored 238 more points than the next guy and was 8-0 in the division. First round bye. Now it's on.
Scored 105 more points in my other league than the next highest guy. Won the first round. However the format is different. Apparently it's four weeks, facing the same opponent for two weeks. Currently I'm up by 25 points.

Money League Playoff Matchup #1

My team

QB: Nick Foles
RB: DeMarco Murray
RB: Shane Vereen
WR: A.J. Green
WR: Andre Johnson
Flex: Antonio Brown
TE: Jimmy Graham
Def: Carolina Panthers
K: Justin Tucker

Bench: Helu, Percy Harvin, Andre Brown (benching due to tough matchup @Seattle), Rivers, James Starks, Dennis Johnson, Donald Brown, Darren Sproles, Nate Burleson

Placing waiver claims for: Toby Gerhart, Jordan Todman, Da'Rick Rogers (dropping Helu, Derrick Johnson and Nate Burleson in corresponding moves)

His team:

QB: Tom Brady
RB: Ray Rice
RB: Eddie Lacy (questionable)
WR: Brandon Marshall
WR: Kendall Wright
Flex: Cecil Shorts
TE: Martellus Bennett
Def: Bengals (vs. Pitt)
K: Blair Walsh

Bench: Rob Gronkowski (inj), Mike Wallace, Rashard Mendenhall, Packers, Chris Givens, Dan Carpenter, Kenny Stills, Darrius Heyward-Bey, Case Keenum

My thoughts: I don't want to jinx it, but if I lose this game I'm going to probably toss a cat. Who keeps two defenses and two kickers (especially during the playoffs)? My roster should destroy him, and leave him in a heap of sadness to contemplate his bad decisions in fantasy and life.

---

Other League Playoff Matchup #2

My team

QB: Cam Newton
RB: Eddie Lacy (questionable)
RB: Shane Vereen
WR: Demaryius Thomas
WR: Dez Bryant
Flex: Josh Gordon
TE: Jimmy Graham
Def: SF 49ers
K: Steven Hauschka

Bench: Pierre Garcon, Eric Decker, CJ Spiller, Andre Brown

His team

QB: Nick Foles
RB: Reggie Bush
RB: DeMarco Murray
WR: Torrey Smith
WR: Harry Douglass
Flex: Knowshon Moreno
TE: Jordan Cameron
Def: Texans
K: Mason Crosby

Bench: Matt Ryan, Keenan Allen, Danny Amendola, Delanie Walker

My thoughts: This one is closer, but I have a relatively comfortable 25-point lead. We're pretty even across the board. I expect him to make some roster moves this week, particularly defense. If Lacy can't go, I'll probably insert Spiller (vs. Jacksonville) and hope for the best. There are plenty of guys on the wire I could snag (Gerhart, Daniel Thomas, Starks, Rainey, Joique Bell, Ellington, Da'Rick Rogers, Bengals/Saints defense), but we have really skinny benches and I'm not sure anybody listed would necessarily be an upgrade (nor could I really afford to drop anyone). My matchups look pretty favorable and I don't think I have much (if any) weather issues to contend with (save for possibly Hauschka kicking in New York). His matchups look relatively favorable on paper as well, though, with only Bush having a difficult one vs. Baltimore. I probably can't count on him benching Keenan Allen again. This one looks tougher, but with a 25-point lead as long as nobody on my team gets injured or really flops (I'm looking at you, Dez), I should be OK.

Im so lucky, the league I had Gronk in, I picked up Julius Thomas early in the season off waivers.

Aaaand I'm going to lose my money league. Wow. Guess I jinxed myself. Oh well. I'll place and get some $$, but I'm pretty disappointed.

I benched Zac Stacy and picked up Ellington, lost by 2 points and Stacy had a big day.

Won fairly handedly in another league thanks to Dez coming up big Sunday.

My 3rd team, I need 14 from Justin Tucker, I'm not real hopeful.

I lost 2 finals, so no championships this year. :cry:

I lost the 3rd place game in my big money league, so I won't even grab consolation cash.

Edit: I was wrong maybe, if the 49ers D fails to get 9 points I take 3rd, which is at least my entry fee back.

BTW I lost that one on a hailmary INT to end the game, was tied at 81 all, but I woulda had tiebreakers. Finished 83-81.

Won two leagues, finished 3rd and 7th in the other two.
Should've been in the championship game in the league where I finished 3rd if not for an absolute freak game by my opponent in the semifinal, he scored something like 140 pts when the projected score was 90 or somesuch.

Went crazy this year and joined six leagues...won the title in three of them. Two of them were money leagues: a work league and a Yahoo $100 pro league where I won $500.

The non-money league was our very own VMB.com league. My Nodak Norsemen reign supreme again, two titles in the last 3 years and the non-title year was 2nd place. Can you say dynasty?! 8)
