    not sure which was more frustrating. Losing 92.68-92.60 in a league which i was in 7th and had an outside shot at making the top 4 or losing by over 50 in the other league which i'm barely holding on to the last playoff spot :fp:

  • I'm in a bad spot right now. I can finish 9-5 and not make the playoffs. Yet last year, I was 9-5 and was the #1 seed. I guess it's nice to see the rest of these bums catch up though.

    damm Rodgers, what the hell are you doing to me. I am tied for 5 but only the top 4 teams make the playoffs and I need 14 points today from Wes or I lose out on the play-offs for the first time in 5 years.

    I will never, ever, EVER have a better FF week that I am having this week. It's one of those inflated #s leagues where you score points for almost everything, but that's beside the point. I have almost doubled my opponent's score so far, and he has the 2nd most points in the league.

    AND

    ...I have 3 players left to play tonight.


    I am up 323 to 168.5 right now.

    Cam Newton, David Wilson, Victor Cruz and the Seattle D ftw!

    he's had a decent enough year...few really nice games couple of clunkers...but overall, not bad for a 3rd rb.

    didn't have the season i expected, but seems to always be the case with him.

    It's the first time I ever randomly joined a league. I've been in a league with my buddy for years, and this year it dissolved. I scrambled last minute to find a freebie to join. It's weird to get points for all sorts of stuff, but it's kinda cool.

  • I win the wildcard as long as Arian Foster scores 21.52 or less points. It's gonna be close.

  • I won my league! First time ever! Aaron Rodgers, Vincent Jackson, Alfred Morris, Seattle D...heck of a squad. Overcame some injury issues with Jordy Nelson and Sproles and some playing-like-shit issues with Antonio Brown and Jimmy Graham...but got through it. Couldn't be happier. $800 in the pocket and some well-earned bragging rights. 156.68-148.30 was the final of the championship game.

    my stupid brother set up our league to have it's championship game next week. i am playing him.

    of course my qb is matt ryan who will probably sit. :x

    goes to show kids, always read your league's rules before starting the season.

    not that it mattered causw i was in the "consolation games, but in one league i benched Matt ryan and roddy white a few weeks ago and forgot to start them :fp:

    The other league i was also in the consolation game and started them this past week. I scored like 160 points with Matt Ryan, Roddy White, Jamaal Charles, Demaryius Thomas, Ray Rice and some others. :corn:

    I lost by one tenth of a point!!!!!!!!!!! One damn tenth. To make matters worse, I lost when they overturned the Vincent Brown down at 1 yard play and turned it into a TD. To make me miserable, my opponent had Peyton. To really stick it to me, James Jones got a big fat zero!

    Yea, I'm pissed

    Tough loss. I had one too last night. Scored 145 points (my 4th highest ever) and lost to my opponent who had 146 points (by FAR his highest ever). He also had Peyton. And we play that TD passes are 6 points...not 4 like most leagues do.

    Not really complaining since I won this week, and I put up 164 (Peyton, D. Thomas, and V. Davis). I may have a developing RB situation. I really need David Wilson to get his shit together.

    I am in (2) leagues and won both of my games this week.

    Anyone play in a league with individual defensive players (DB, S, LB, etc)? This is my second year doing it and I think it sucks. I tried it for the first time last year and I didn't enjoy it compared to my other league I was in. I only agreed to do it again this year because a good friend of mine is in it. He was the one who invited me into the league last season, and I thought I would give it one more chance at liking it. On top of that, the league I am in where you draft individual defensive players has 20 guys in it.

    A 20 man league is ridiculous. The talent seems massively watered down when you have this many guys playing. I think a 10-12 man league is perfect. The worst part is the attitude these guys have in the IDP league. Because there are so many players taken in the draft, they tend to think it is more "realistic" and hard-core when it comes to Fantasy Football. Hardcore?? LOL it's freaking fantasy football.

    I love FF and I will continue to do it every NFL season. That said, I will never get in a IDP league again
