First week of the playoffs, the #1 seed, most points scored all year, best team overall, and a cocky guy to boot, thinks he is the world's best FFL player. 

 

First week of playoffs, he overthinks himself.  Starts Jameis Winston over Tom Brady.  If he had started Brady, he would have won by 6 points, but he lost. lol.

My team squeaked into the playoffs, and beat the #1 seed this past weekend.  Actually, it was more like a total annihilation... 120-36.

 

Most of the guys in my league are, "oh yeah, I have to set my lineup" kind of guys, but this only one of two guys who are REALLY serious about winning. 

 

Felt pretty good.

I could win several hundred dollars, that's the appeal for me.  It's about the prize, and taking money from your friends and then lording it over them, lol.

 

I have a chance to have my best fantasy football year ever.  In 4 leagues, I am in the playoffs in three of them.  One of those is a 12-team with a 3-week playoff system, and I won my first round last week.  Tonight will be close, I am down about 13 points but I have Rob Kelley going, it's also a half-point PPR.  If I get a good game from him and Gano doesn't do much, I punch my ticket to my league Super Bowl.

 

In another league, I got the top seed and am up 15 points, with 0 players to play tonight.  My opponent has Jordan Reed.  Crossing fingers, I estimate I'm about a 65% favorite, but Reed has had big games before. 

 

In the last league, it's not for money, but a trophy with some friends, and I've pretty much dominated the entire year, and I already vanquished my first round opponent, 173.55 - 129.10.  I will go into the championship as a fairly heavy favorite.  

 

Would love to get 3 out of 4 championships, we'll see what happens.

Good luck. I won four out of six leagues last year and I should've just retired instead of building all of teams around combos of Hopkins/Marshall/a.robinson. Never doing that again

Yeah it will be interesting to see how some of those guys do next year. I'm bullish on Hopkins still as long as Osweiler is out at QB.

I lost in one playoff game. It was very close, just needed a bit more from Rob Kelley but because Cousins and the Redskins defense sucked so bad, they got too far behind and Kelley didn't really receive much second half play with them in the 2 minute offense for most of the second half. Basically the opposite game script of what I needed.

I did advance to my league Super Bowl in 2 other leagues, one is a money leagie, one is not. It will be a tough matchup this week but I'm at least guaranteed $50, if I win it's $200. Not earth shattering money but still pretty nice.

Thanks.  Feel pretty good.  In the money league championship game I'm in, I'm going up against my brother-in-law, who is an enormous Packers fan. 

 

He has two team defenses on his team... Vikings going up against his Packers and the Panthers, at home against the Falcons... I saw the Packers DEF sitting out their on waivers, so I used my top waiver priority to pick them up... not to play them, I'm going with the Giants vs Philly... but just so he couldn't pick them up and play them against me, lol.  I'm waiting for him to call me out on it.
