Fantasy Football Update

Here are the updated standings after week 12:

As you can see, Drew somehow still won his game last night because Green Bay didn't attempt a single field goal. Vikingur jumped to 3rd in the standings. Because of Regulators come from behind win over Crazy Horses, the field is set for the playoffs. The seeding isn't set since we still have one week left of regular play. Here is a look at the playoff bracket if things started today:

Freaking Fantasy Football!!!!

Well, after weeks of trying not to post results, I am giving in to the Drew Marshall pressure to post some of the results. My team is in the midst of a three game losing streak (four after tomorrow) that has taken me from 3rd place, to 8th place. The only positives I have are that I am first in 2 of the 3 ESPN leagues I am playing in.

Drew has won his last two games, but is only up 8 heading into tonight's game. He is playing Wright Nation who has Green Bay's kicker in tonight's MNF game. If he makes three field goals, Drew will lose..........go Mason Crosby!!

Porkers (Wade) most likely will have won 3 out of 4 after tonight's game, although he as only scored over 80 points in 1 of the last 4 weeks, and that was a loss. However, somehow his team has done well with the losses of Steven Jackson, Earnest Graham, Brandon Jacobs, and Plaxico Burress.

The biggest surges over the last few weeks have been by Vikingur & WT Power. WT Power will most likely have gone from 9th, to 5th after this week, and Vikingur could find himself in 3rd or 4th after this week. After this week Vikingur will be 5-5-2, but will most likely have the overall points lead.

Here are the standings today as of 10:30am, I will repost the new standings tomorrow.

The reason why Drew wanted me to post, is due to last weeks whipping. He beat me both times this year, by an average of 28 per contest. As you can see, Drew (Blaze), and Adzmat's Team (Adam) have both clinched a playoff birth as well.

So, anyone who has known me over the last few years, knows my favorite golfer of all time is Davis Love III. I have always loved Davis because he is a class act and a great ambassador of the game. I typically follow him throughout the year, see if he makes the cut, see how much money he is making, etc. He hasn't been playing very well this year, with the exception of the last few weeks. Well, though the hustle and bustle of a busy weekend (fantasy football, masters program, primary, etc.) I failed to look at the leaderboard going into either Saturday or Sunday. To my frustration, as I surfed the web today I realize that he won the tournament over the weekend, and I MISSED IT!! It is Davis's 20th victory which gives him a lifetime exemption on the PGA tour.

Fantasy Football Weeks 8 & 9

Well, another two weeks has came and gone since my last FF post. This last week ended in pure disappointment. I was down 11 points with one of my better players left to play (Reggie Wayne), and he came up with 8 points, so I lost by 3. I went 1 - 1 the last two weeks, beating Regulators in week 8 thanks to a big game by Brian Westbrook.

Drew (Blaze) went 1 - 1 the last two weeks first beating the number one, and then undefeated, Porkers team managed by Wade the great. He followed up his impressive win by promptly losing to the second to last place team (WT Power(note: that is Wes Tallon Power, not white power)).

Vikingur went 1 - 1 with a win vs. Duds Boys, and a loss to Regulators. Wright Nation went 1 - 1 with a loss to Crazy Horses, and a win vs. Duds Boys. Adzmat's Team went 2 - 0, with wins vs. Crazy Horses and WT Power. Crazy Horses went 1 - 1 with a win at Wright Nation, and the loss to Adzmat's Team. Duds Boys went 0 - 2, Regulators went 1 - 1, Porkers went 1 - 1, beating me and Losing to Drew by 10 in week 8. Porkers has scored over 100 only once in the last 5 weeks. WT Power went 1 - 1, but could have easily been 2 - 0, as his loss was by only 6 points.

Here are the current standings after week 9:

In some funny news, Drew has had every quarterback on his roster hurt. He drafted Tom Brady, who went out for the season in game one. He drafted Matt Schaub, who is currently injured. He traded for Kitna, who is now been cut by the Lions. He picked up Kyle Orton, who has since got injured. He now has Matt Ryan (a rookie) and Brady Quinn (made first NFL start last night). That being said, I play him this week and he will probably beat me.
