    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 agree.

    I drafted well & got lucky on my waiver moves. That's all you can ask for.

    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.

    In 4 leagues, 4 playoffs.
    Playoffs are in round 2 in one league, round 1 in another league, and playoffs start next week in other 2.

    i know that really sucked for TB owners today. I own him in one of my playoff teams but that team doesn't start playoffs until next week. It appears that i won both of the first round matchups i was in today
