Your 2012 Fantasy Football Team? - Page 2

post #19 of 22

I'm showing up late to this party but I'll share my story.  I play in a 12-team keeper/dynasty league with head to head match-ups and weird division rules: 

QB: Drew Brees 
RB: MJD 
RB: Frank Gore 
WR: Roddy White 
WR: Larry Fitzgerald 
W/R: Denarius Moore / Felix Jones 
TE: Mercedes Lewis / Brent Celek / any hot waiver wire guy 
D/ST: Seattle 

BN: Rashad Jennings 
BN: Nate Washington 
BN: Joe Flacco 

MJD & Fitzgerald tanking pretty much summed up my year, and the Brees/R. White/Fitzgerald collapse at the end knocked me out of the playoffs.

I can keep three players of my choosing.  I have kept Brees, MJD, & White for the last 4 years (I won the championship once basically because of them), but I can't decide if MJD is worth keeping anymore.

I'm nervous. In five minutes the last game of the FF regular season begins - Texans at New England. I need to win to get the last playoff spot, and I'm presently ahead 113-81.

 

Sounds good, right?

 

Not really. My opponent has Andre Johnson & Wes Welker going. I got Stevan Ridley & the NE Defense.

 

I need the NE secondary to have a big night & shut down Johnson. Welker ain't gonna beat me single-handedly. 

 

Gonna be fun to watch!

I ended up finishing the regular season 13th of 16, 3rd best in points scored and worst in points against.

That was me too, jamo. After 6 weeks I was 1-5 but 2nd in points. Everyone was having their best weeks against me. But I've been 6-1 in my last 7 to get to 7-6.

 

See, this is something we do differently in my league...which has been around 25 years, btw...we not only play head-to-head like every other league, but we also give out bonus money for the top point earners, regardless of record. Keeps teams in it up until week 17. Plus we also play nickle a point, which teams from giving up - if you do you just hurt yourself more.

 

But we don't stop there! We play postseason too. Whoever you got on your roster who's on an NFL playoff team plays for you automatically. We reset the points to zero, and play a separate pool for postseason, points only. Makes the waiver wire the last couple of regular-season weeks crazy as everyone drops their non-playoff players & picks up third-string Tight Ends on playoff teams.

 

After 25 years we've perfected fantasy football. Ain't over 'til triple zeroes on the clock at the Super Bowl.
