Your opponent's two running backs are Ronnie Brown and Reggie Bush. Should be a gimme week, right? WRONG!
Both Peterson's take a dive on me, as does Vince Young. Every body on my opponents team has at least one TD. Cutler has the game of his life, Evans comes out of nowhere, Tomlinson is playing like his old self, and you could also add in Fitgerald and Gonzalez's numbers.
I'm on the brink of making the playoffs (4 teams make the playoffs; Week 16&17). It looks like there will be a three teams, with the same record, fighting for the last two spots and I go up against the best team in the league next week.
If I don't make the playoffs, I QUIT! :-C

I made the playoffs with a Win today as the #1 seed instead of missing it altogether.

Crisis averted.

So I won the championship game by 6 points, a lot closer than I expected. Aaron Stecker of all people saved my season. Still, it's way too random and I'm not sure if I enjoy it enough to keep playing. :-D

I have had the best team in my league three years running (LT/Bulger/Steve Smith) and for the last two years I’ve had Addai and this year I cut Bulger and picked up Derek Anderson. I lost in the first round of the playoffs each of the past two seasons, and this year I lost every odd-numbered week and missed the playoffs entirely.

I’m in four other leagues. One I never contended in. Two of them I went into the playoffs as the #1 seed, and got hammered and I’m out in both. The fourth I barely missed the playoffs.

Running backs killed me all season long in each league. I eked out wins in those two leagues to make the playoffs despite inconsistencies from Reggie Bush, LaMont Jordan, Steven Jackson, Shaun Alexander, Rudi Johnson, Larry Johnson, etc. But this week, it all came crashing down and I’m going to finish out of the money in every league.

I love football, but my love of fantasy football is taking some serious hits right now. Like everyone has been saying, the luck factor is far too high for me. :-[ :-C

I have ignored my only live team (in the consolation draw) this week and it has scored 160 points? What the :-S :-S :-S :-S
It has a 6-7 record and next week will play for 5th place.
Minimum moves or keeping up and I can be 5th?
Whatever.
That's not skill , that's like playing a slot machine. :-P :-P

I only play 1 league. It's a $$ dynasty league with a unique setup. This is season 3. I finished 4-9 in the first season and followed that up with a nice 3-10. Due to questionable trades, I also traded my picks in the first 2 drafts. We only have 1 round for rookies. I finished this season as the 6th seed (8-5) and barely snuck into the playoffs. I won my first 2 matchups and am going for the 'Ship. :-)
