    Your blind love of the Eagles must have made you think that they would score a ton of points on the Cincy D. LOL :dizzy:

    Ironically, I was thinking a couple days ago that if I were in your shoes, I would have started Cincy D based on how inconsistant the Eagles are. Plus, St. Louis has the Adrian Peterson problem.

    Don't worry though. I'm sure I'll leave a ton of points on the bench this week as well due to my poor decision making. I seem to do it almost every week somehow.

    Tell me about it.

    Put Pitta in for Olsen this past week and then changed my mind yesterday...Pitta went off for 28 today. I'll be happy if Oslen gets even 10.

    Had been noodling who to put in as my 3rd WR (after Cruz & Wayne) between Antonio Brown, James Jones and TY Hilton. Settled on Brown this morning. Of course, Jones got 3 TDs and over 26 points. Hilton got a TD and over 15 points. Meanwhile, Cruz & Wayne combined for 5.9 points.

    6 TDs and over 70 points on my bench today between Jones, Hilton, and Pitta. I'm probably screwed

    I picked 14 away teams this week........out of 16 teams.
    Picking the Lions to lose was a good choice.
    I was the only one to pick the 49ers this weekend, another good choice.
    Looks like we may end up in 2nd place after this week.

    Whew! Thanks for killing me Cowardly. I would have felt really crunchy for playing the wrong guys if it was close. Ouch. I shouldn't have dropped Kaepernick, huh?

    Gold and Silver game... Detteam and Cowardly.

    Good luck guys.

    Bronze... Mowgli and I. Which just goes to show you, the byes mean nothing.

    The free agent market has officially saved my season thanks to picking up Crabtree and Knowshon earlier this year, and then Kaepernick this week after RG3 went down. I got very lucky that my 49er players had a great night on SNF. Otherwise, my season might have been over. Funny thing is that I was choosing between picking up Russell Wilson or Kaepernick and Wilson scored even more points than Kaepernick.

    Darth Drath definitely had a chance this week but he did what I usually do, by leaving some of the best point earners for the week on the bench.

    Moogs needs 23 and change from Chris Johnson who is going up against a suspect Jets run D to keep his season alive. Will we see the CJ of old? It might get interesting. If Debt Team starts the right guys, it would have been a huge blowout.

    Fantasy football seems to be 70% luck and 30% skill. My same guys that performed this week will probably lay an egg in the final.

    Yep. I botched my lineup in every way possible. Didn't help that Cruz and Wayne combined for 5.9 points.

    Now I can only cross my fingers and wait to see what happens

    Yeah, I agree.

    But who was the best team?

    Mowgli ended the season in 1st place.

    I ended the regular season with the most points.

    Assuming Detteam beats Mowgli (I didn't realize that one wasn't over) then you and Detteam will end up with the most desirable hardware based on your guys dominance in the playoffs.

    I think the 4 best teams made it to the semi finals (we all finished the regular seaon with the most points AND in the top 4 positions) so I'm happy with the way things turned out, but every team deserves congratulations for doing a great job. Except the one player who abandoned his team during the regular season.

    But in the end, when all is said and done and the dust clears, everyone will be envious of the gold medal winner! :)

    Great season gentleman!!!

    One time back during the war I caught this fish, it was the biggest you ever saw! It fed my family for a year.

    Congrats, Mossberg. It was a nail-biter right into the last half.

    Congratulations, Mossy. I predicted you would take it. Your team got really hot this month.I got the bronze with a whopping 165. I had Detteam and Mowgli reversed. I didn't realize clown fish were bottom feeders.

    Mowgli got screwed. I've been there more than once.

    Great finish.

    I almost paid the price for my ill-advised Roddy White experiment. I would have never thought Adrian Peterson and Vic Cruz would show me mercy. I just knew I had lost the ship.

    Was fumbling around this morning trying to figure out who to put in the flex spot...I chose poorly. Peterson gets a pass. Cruz failed miserably down the stretch racking up only 6.6 points over the last two weeks
