I agree with this...that said, if you can beat team B if you just try the last week of the season, what makes you so scared of them in the playoffs?


He doesn't play team B the last week. The point is that team B is the strongest team but they will be eliminated if team A wins its final H2H game. And he can guarantee that if he tanks to team A in the final week.

Good point!! In Roto most every team is already out of the championship picture in September (and in most cases in August). :-t
