Lost by ~3 points. Had I of won would have been 1 GB of the last 2 playoff spots. Still not sure if the schedule would have made it possible to sneak in, but what an incredibly frustrating season from start to finish.

I'm not even a lock for the playoffs having one of the better teams in the league. Imagine how I feel (probably not as bad as you though).

#1 record is 6th in total points and the #2 record is like 8th in total points.


Summary: Fantasy football sucks and I am a whiner.

4 teams tied for the final 2 playoff spots, 1 team 1 off the pace (and 2nd in points). I get to rest my starters as I pretty much have the top seed locked up.

My schedule has been very lucky, I will probably get smoked in the playoffs.

Think the playoffs are about set

1. Illini hockey
2. 74
3. Anderson
4. Torment unless Coldsteel can stage a 40 point comeback with 3 players to go

Hoping to lock this down tonight. Will be in playoffs in all 3 leagues if I hold on tonight. My team and cold steels teams were horrible this week...

Handzus is back in the lineup tonight, so I would assume that Morin's on his way back to Rockford.

welp, my team **** the bed so bad. Picked up Donald Brown since Mccoy was on a buy, got like 1 point. Picked up browns defense because I couldn't bring myself to start the rams defense, 0 pts, and sat larry fitzgerald. If I had done either of the last two things differently I would have won and been in the PO's.

Man I really hate that the 2nd league on here starts playoffs NEXT week instead of this week. Gotta love playing for the championship week 17 and having your starters sitting out.

what are you talking about?

playoffs are week 14 and 15 in the other league..1 week playoff not this 2 week nonsense.

this leagues playoffs starts way too damn soon. especially when only 4 teams make it.

Yeah, wasn't a fan of the '2 leg' playoffs in this last year.

Didn't help that I tied for 1st and didn't make the playoffs.

My bad, assumed they were 2 weeks like league 1. Being one week, is much better.

I had fun doing it this year, but a few things need to change for next season IMO.

Add another roster spot. Simple as that. No reason to have that few bench spots. I shouldn't have to cut good players as often as I had to for bye week replacements or for IR players.

Playoffs start week 14, gives teams another week to try and fight to get in.

No 2 week playoffs. We didn't have 2 week matchups during the year, why change that for the playoffs? Makes no sense to me.


All in all my team was pretty loaded but **** the bed I guess.

Though I had the 2nd most points at 1215 and still came in 7th place because I had nearly the most points against at 1219. I don't get how I can be 2nd in points but finish 7th!! That should tell you how much luck has to play in schedules. I got everybody's greatest game against me apparently!

Good luck to those that made it, but lets be honest, you would have gotten steam rolled by my team if I wasn't so darn unlucky!

till next year.

no prob.

I didn't even know of the 2 week playoffs here until a few weeks ago. it just doesn't make sense to me. should just have 2 more teams make the playoffs if we are going to drag this out. no reason 6 teams can't make the playoffs with the top 2 teams getting a bye if the playoffs are starting this week.

It's is a better determiner of the better team. Teams don't lose a playoff match up because of an injury or bad match up week

Confused by some of the talk on here. Thought it was 2 weeks for the playoffs, championship is next week based on the two winners this week. That's pretty much the norm for most leagues unless there is 6 teams which I think there should be if the playoffs start this week.

As far as having a ton of points and losing, it happens all the time in FF. Some leagues will do top four by record, then the next two by highest points to even out.

4 weeks of playoffs, that's absurd.
