First round of playoffs in alpha league and last week of regular season in beta league, where I abolsutely need to win (vs the 1st place guy), if not I'm out of playoffs.
I know I'm ****ed in at least one of the two because basically in alpha league I have half the players of my opponent in beta league.
For an incredible series of events I end up to win in both leagues, in alpha by just ONE point. But the other guy has Rob friggin' Ninkovich (what an ass DE!) who was awarded half a sack instead of a full one: I knew it was coming.
Tonight Yahoo inserted the corrected stats and Ninkovich is awarded a full sack. They haven't updated the scores as of yet but by tomorrow I'm going from winning by one point to losing by one point.
A big thank to Elvis Dumervil who laid an egg on me, Bradshaw and Chris Johnson with yet another pathetic effort and Welker who had a mediocre game: can't believe that if he got three more yards in the last kickoff, I'd be at least tied with the other guy.
For the record I sit Mike Wallace, Knowshown Moreno and Green Bay defense.
Second time I've been screwed up by corrected stats!!!
I lost my first ever playoff matchup by 3 points because I ignored my gut and started Antonio Gates. My gut was screaming at me to start the emergency garbage I had on my bench. Said garbage would have been worth 4 points more than Gates, and the win.
Suffice it to say I will not be targeting Antonio Gates in my draft next year. He is the biggest goat on my team by far. Ryan Mathews is second.
So my 2nd round playoff opponent only had RG3 and no backup qb on his roster, so when I saw RG3 get hurt I immediately picked up Big Ben and Russell Wilson(HUGE drop off in talent after those two) which forced him to pick up and start Nick Foles. So far my underhanded move is paying off haha.
Everyone failed me this week. Peyton, Wayne, D. Wilson, B. Watson, J. Avant, M. Owens, C. Barth...injuries to FJax/Gronk/Broyles finally caught up to me. Not to mention I pick up the Lions D expecting them to duplicate last week's disaster of Arizona and they end up sucking even more than Arizona.
On to the 3rd place game. Really sucks. Had the most points in my whole 18 team league in our regular season.
So at the trade deadline I offered someone Cam Newton for Jamal Charles, cause McGahee was injured and I was really desperate for a RB. He rejected it. After that Newton has played amazing and I faced that same guy in the semi-finals this week. Charles got like 2.5 points and I ended up beating him to advance to the final.
