in most leagues, the fantasy football playoffs start this week. 3 of my 4 teams made it in, while my other one missed it by one game, so i am pretty happy about that. How have you done this season?

Some crap. One of my leagues is so good, that my 7-5-1 team didn't even make it in. So I only made it in 4 out of the 6 leagues I am in.

Why so many teams?

I only play in one league with my friends.

I'm the #2 seed in the playoffs with a 9-4 record.

In the official Houston Texans ESPN league, I made the playoffs. Ours started last week. I need Adrian to have a huge game this week in order for me to stay in it....

Fantasy football is like a drug/gambling. This is my first year. I made one team, kind of liked it, and was like "I can make my next team better".

And should I start McDonald (Lions) or Gaffney (Patriots)? Also, Graham (Bucs) or McGahee?

I'm in first place in a ten-team Yahoo league. I'm always in the top three every season - but since I started back in like 2002, I've only been able to win one championship. Every year, some BS happens and I lose in the first or second round, LOL. Last year - I had my ticket to the title game punched until someone stepped on Steve McNair's hand before he even threw a pass in my first round playoff game.

Here's my team:

QB Brady
QB Cutler
RB Grant
RB Jacobs
WR Wayne
WR Welker
WR Henry
TE Daniels
W/T Hester
W/R Fargas
W/R Rudi Johnson
K Crosby
DEF Baltimore
DL/LB L. Fletcher
DB Winfield

Bench:
QB Rosenfels
QB Schaub
RB Darius Walker
RB Ron Dayne (yeah, I know - lots of Texans, but I don't play them too much)
RB Aaron Stecker
RB Kolby Smith
RB Jerious Norwood
DEF Indianapolis
WR Javon Walker
WR Boldin


I finished with an 11-3 record, first place, but I'll probably lose in the second round.

All of your teams have nothing compared to one of mine. This is just a 6 team league though but it is completely unreal.

It is in a league that starts 2 QB's, 4 WR's, 4 RB's, 2 TE's, 1 W/T, 1 W/R, and one kicker and D.

QB Tom Brady
QB David Garrard
WR TJ Houshmanzadeh
WR Braylon Edwards
WR Bernard Berrian
WR Lee Evans
RB Ladainian Tomlinson
RB Willie Parker
RB Maurice Jones Drew
RB Brandon Jacobs
TE Vernon Davis
TE Owen Daniels
W/T Dwayne Bowe
W/R Kenny Watson
K Jeff Wilkins
DEF San Diego

BN Reuben Droughns
BN Alge Crumpler
BN Adrian Peterson(the bears one)
BN Philip Rivers
BN Jay Cutler

my other teams are also really good but nothing compares to this team. This is the league i am 12-2, on a 12 game winning streak.

Nice team, but the way your league is designed is probably why your team is stacked. What website is it? I might do it next year.

The norm for me.

One and done. And to a team who had the autodraft draft his team. That just doesn't seem right.

Note: This is my first EVER fantasy football season. rofl, I'm in a paid league with my step-dad, and I kicked his ass twice this season.

I did alright. I would have the no.2 seed if this one guy didn't take it over in the last week of the "regular season".

I'm 8-5-1. I'm winning 65-28 today, because all of my guys had terrible days. I'm just lucky the other guy is having a worse day. However-- Adrian Peterson is the other guy left to play on his roster, and I can't let him have another 40 point game.

Here's my roster:

Tony Homo, Dal QB
Willis McGahee, Bal RB
Earnest Graham, TB RB
Marshawn Lynch, Buf RB
Brandon Marshall, Den WR
Roddy White, Atl WR
Owen Daniels, Hou TE
Seahawks D/ST, Sea D/ST
Kris Brown, Hou K


Bench Larry Johnson, (what if he comes back?!)
Bench Anquan Boldin, Ari WR (See above)
Bench Titans D/ST, Ten D/ST
Bench Derrick Mason, Bal WR (Should always start him, but I didn't this week)
Bench Giants D/ST, NYG D/ST
Bench Kurt Warner, Ari QB P
Bench Maurice Morris, Sea RB

I started off 1-7 in my league. The playoffs are weeks 16 and 17. Four out of eight teams are in the playoffs. I've won 5 of my last 6 and am in sixth place. I needed two of the three teams in front of me to lose this week and me to win for me to make the playoffs. And it looks like it is going to happen :d:

Two points! I lost by two points on my best team. If Westbrook hadn't kneeled, I would have won it. Oh well, I still got one team left.

I feel bad for you. >.<

A few weeks back I lost by 2 points to the best team.

Was week 2, I believe. I played the Cincy D/ST, and they got me -6 points. >.<

Okay who should I start???

Just won the first round of the playoffs so I am now in the championship game.

I've got Tony Romo as my starting QB but reports are that he 'slightly' injured his thumb on his throwing hand. Dallas is playing at Carolina next week and the panthers are about middle of the pack in pass defense, (giving up 18tds)

Meanwhile I picked up Donovan McNabb who had a decent game last week and is playing atNew Orleans. NO ranks 29th in passing D and has given up the 2nd most passing TD's (26)

Here is our point system (we wanted to get lots of points):
* 1 point for every 25 yards passing
* extra 5 points for over 300 yards passing
* 6 points for each TD
* -2 pts for each fumble/interception

Thanks for your help! I have no other players on Dallas or Philadelphia. (other starters are Randy Moss, Greg Jennings, Marques Colston, Ryan Grant, Brandon Jacobs, Heath Miller, Adam Vinitieri, San Diego)

That's a tough one.....McNabb can have a big game out of nowhere and Romo is a big question mark as far as his thumb goes. Dallas is still fighting for home field advantage, so that should help Romo, but McNabb might be playing hard to stay with Philly or prove them wrong when they drop him at the end of the year.

Then I think back to last year and it seemed like(maybe I'm wrong) Romo played poorly at the end of the year. Difficult choice here IMO.

This time of year is when weather plays a factor. That's why I'm going with Sage over Farve in my playoff game. McNabb is playing indoors and playing a weak Saints defense. I'd have to go with McNabb.

12-18-2007, 11:56 AM
I don't like getting too tricky this time of year. Stick with Romo unless his injury will really mess with his game or he is very questionable. He usually follows up a bad game with a huge one. That is my theory.

12-18-2007, 02:22 PM
Ok I have a quagmire and need some advice.
stats: 1 pass=1 point,
20 pass yards=1 point
1 td =6 points(passing catching or running)
10 yards rushing or receiving=1 point
int=-4 on QB, +4 for D
sack=-2 on QB, +2 for D


1.I am gonna start Warner over Garrard(I like Warner's ATL opponent) make sense?
2. Addai, Stecker, and Graham(2 RB and 1 RB/WR flex) over Lynch, the other Adrian Peterson, and Shaun Alexander. Thats the right move, right?
3. At WR I have Andre Johnson, Braylon Edwards, and Anthony Gonzalez. On my bench is Anquan Boldin and Calvin Johnson. SHould I bring one of them in for Gonzalez?
4. TE is Dallas Clark. Should I go out and pick up a TE off the FA wire like Schellefer, Vernon Davis, or Donald Lee?
5. Should I trust in Mario and gamble or stick to Patrick Willis and a more conservative approach for my D player?
6. Should I stick with Mason Cosby as my kicker or go to my bench and get Gostowski?

Thanks in advance!!!

Yes.

Yes.
3. At WR I have Andre Johnson, Braylon Edwards, and Anthony Gonzalez. On my bench is Anquan Boldin and Calvin Johnson. SHould I bring one of them in for Gonzalez?
No, stand pat.
4. TE is Dallas Clark. Should I go out and pick up a TE off the FA wire like Schellefer, Vernon Davis, or Donald Lee?
Scheffler's looks like the real deal, but Clark always scores against the Texans.
5. Should I trust in Mario and gamble or stick to Patrick Willis and a more conservative approach for my D player?
I don't see Willis coming up with sacks.
6. Should I stick with Mason Cosby as my kicker or go to my bench and get Gostowski?
Crosby will kick more FGs, Gostkowski more XPs.

My reply in bold.

Thanks Lucky! Quick edit, I forgot to say that my league gets 1 point per tackle
(for D players only not team D). Should i go for Mario or stick with Patrick Willis now?

Also, if you had the choice of going Schefler or Clark which way would you go? I guess I am a little uneasy that Dungy might sit his starters and while Addai and Gonzalez figure to make some poitns I could see Clark not. Your thoughts?

I'm trying to figure out what to do wth A. Boldin myself. He's had limited practice due to a sore toe, BUT, Fitzgerald has a groin injury, so Boldin might get the nod. I have to bench Harrison, and I'm playing AJ. My RBs are Addai and Minn's AP, and I will probably bench E James. QB, Raiders McCown (having to use backup due to Schaub being out) and I have K Brown as kicker. We don't play D, so no worries there.

Final game, SB on Sunday for my FF team!! I'm playing my biggest rival, a guy I have played FF with for 17 years, and never beat in the playoffs!! I NEED TO WIN!!!!:wild:

12-24-2007, 03:43 PM
YEEEHAWWWW!! My theory about Boldin and Fitzgerald paid off. Thanks to AB, I now hold the braggin rights for my league. It's a SWEET win because those guys DO NOT like gettin beat by a woman!! :) PLUS, my bank account is somewhat bigger. Gonna save my winnings for the GB game next year.

Nice feeling since our TEXANS did nothing yesterday to make me feel better.
