I picked up Spencer Ware the other day. Could be a difference maker for the Oriels!

Well done to all those who made the playoffs.

Fourth & Forever and Sin City automatically get promoted to the Premier league.

I managed to somehow conspire to miss the playoffs even though I won. Had been fifth going in before this week and here I am today missing out on the last spot! Outscored the whole league by 130 points, but hey that fantasy.

Best of luck to all in the playoffs.

Very unlucky, top scorer in the league and missing the playoffs is tough.

Looking forward to renewing my divisional rivalry with Spongey Hates Flex

Yes very unlucky.

I had my worst week of the year (missing Trubisky and Gordon and then McCoy breaking his leg) but got lucky to come out on the right side of the season tiebreakers and points for by 1 point over Oriels to get the bye this week. Hopefully my guys are back after the bye week so my team is competitive again.

Wouldnt call it a rivalry if i havent won a game against you Funny thing i've made the playoffs in 3 of my leagues this year and each one im playing the WC match against an opponent who's beaten me in the last 2 weeks of the season. Revenge is coming

That K***** *unt fella rightly screwed me up at the wrong time but still in the mix

It's not fantasy at all actually. Most mature leagues use points for as tiebreaker. It's much fairer than other options.

Disagree, Fantasy football is a week to week game and its about wins and losses and not total points over the season, same as the real game.

You can’t play defense in fantasy though. Moreover, at the end of the year when teams are tied in the week to week system it is clearly better to split them by the better measure of skill.

In the real NFL there is a skill to preparing for familiar divisional opponents of course, and biasing tie breakers on that basis but it doesn’t stack up in fantasy. The manager putting up more points over the season has put together a better roster / made superior start / sit decisions and has demonstrated more skill over the course of the year. They deserve to progress where win / loss is tied.

We can vote on it over the summer anyway.

I agree completely. Fantasy is a week to week game. You can finish with the second highest score in a week and lose and finish with the second lowest score in a week and win. Thats not fair but its fantasy. I would call it unfair to know that you have beaten someone and they take your playoff spot because they were lucky to avoid injuries all season (not saying Blacque only got highest score cos of no injuries). Luck plays a huge part in fantasy and in my eyes makes it more enjoyable and i say this as the guy with the second highest score of the league.

I was flying it in first place and confident of getting back to the Premier and then my starting RBs decided to get injured and suspended and now in real danger of a Wild card exit. I dont call it unfair, i call it unlucky and wouldnt have it any other way

I suppose one of the issues, is that in a 16 team league you don't get to play everybody and that was part of my downfall. In this case where I somehow fell out of the playoff positions after winning, about 30 things had to happen for me to be knocked out and its just hard luck.
