Sneaked in a .44 win in a final in one league.

Makes me feel a bit better after getting boned in a draw last week in a league that doesn't use decimal scoring

On ESPN just won the title as a 4 seed...or so I thought. Won the 2 week final by about 30 but it isn't showing week 16 in the final score and it says I lost even though I won by 5. I am confused on that.

Big thanks to Seattle and Baltimore for shutting down Gore and Nicks. Got lucky with Charles big run for a TD and eventual outburst while Foster did nothing. Got lucky though, best team scoring wise the last 2 rounds was a team that lost in round 1.

Second title, won on HF last year in a HC/IR league. Got Gronk in round 15 of that draft, along with Benson and Alex Smith late who helped big time.

Wait, now it says I won...

My team laid an absolute dud in the biggest game of the year.

Oh well, 2nd place this year.

Amendola, AP, and Hernandez combined for 11 fantasy points.

I didn't have the best effort from my team, Brady was mediocre and Chris Johnson and Amendola were duds but overall the team had a pretty good scoring week. Too bad the other finalist went on to the second best score of the entire season and beat me. I finished second, considering I pulled a big upset squeezing in the playoffs, I can be satisfied.

I was league champion in 2011 after I was unable to log in on draft day and had my team auto-picked. The auto-pick awarded me one single QB and that was Peyton Manning, as a 5th round selection IIRC.

I'm one of those fanatical trade/waiver wire managers, so my team on the final day ended up being 100% different from what I started with, but some of the highlights included trading Jamaal Charles for Maurice Jones-Drew the week that Charles tore his ACL, then losing Britt to an ACL tear the week after...

My QB shuffled around through the early part of the season before eventually settling on Tim Tebow, who despite not putting up stellar numbers proved to be my lucky charm as I went undefeated after acquiring him.

I also got pretty lucky, overall, because I finished with the lowest total points against in the league.

Moral of the story... draft your team.

Moral of the story for 2012, if you draft your team don't trade it away...

I won my league after finishing 6th overall and barely getting in. Beat the 3rd place guy, then the 2nd, then the 1st to win. Get at me . First year of doing fantasy, after paying no attention to football last year.

Amendola and Hernandez sucked at the end for me but it was mainly the old fantasy sports rule that killed me.

"You can't win a draft in the 1st couple round but you can certainly lose one"

Run DMC, Murray and Nicks. All 3 of them are on my ban list (unless value is just ridiculous of course, but not one will be a top 3 round pick at all)

In 2010 I lost a Title due to a stat correction. So brutal.

Championship Game 3 years ago, the infamous Tuesday Night Football game in Philly due to the terrible snow storm there IIRC. Leading by .7, 8 yard dump pass to Brent Celek in garbage time and I lose by .03... 3 one hundredths of a point... Brutal, felt like the Bills. Made up for it this year, winning the league.
