    Nah, I'm already up relative to the last two weeks when I forgot to set my lineup on Monday.

    This is not going well. Didn't we just beat these guys?

    Interestingly, as of this moment the teams ranked 5,6,7, and 8 are ahead of the top 4 teams. We are just over halfway through the week, though, so there is a lot of basketball still to be played.

    This stuff is so random. But that being said, the top team finished about 10 games above the final team to make the playoffs, after 23 weeks, so we were all pretty close anyhow, since that is less than one game every 2 weeks!

    I'm (Arsenal) on the ropes really, if you analyse the match up. I'm quite a new Fantasy player (My third year) and I think I may have been trumped in terms of my playoff strategy. (Excuses, excuses eh)

    You put together a terrific season. Particularly for a rookie.

    The playoffs are for the most part a crapshoot. One bad week for your opponent happens to have a really incredible week and your season comes to an unfortunate and abrupt halt. Never evaluate your skills or your season on playoff results.

    Yeah. You got "Tatered".

    You had a great regular season. You shouldn't rate yourself or the team you compiled based on one week where a lot of luck is involved.

    Yeah, you've been streamed. But since the Pink Gators are so much more proficient at it than I am, I think we should change the name from "Tatering" to "Gatoring"!!

    Unbelievable finishes...

    1. Thought for sure I blew a jumbo lead for the biggest choke in fantasy history.But My #7 team held on in the last game.

    2. The final game of the week came down to a turnover but Laimbeer pulled through maybe by virtue of the last game of avoiding overtime by inches.

    3.the Lebron's tying and therefore winning a tiebreaker after trailing big the entire week.

    I want to sincerely thank Bill Laimbeer who for the last 4 days kept me grounded while I was losing my head as my team was imploding even though his own team was in an even closer battle.

    Are the stats finalised though? Given that it currently states I won Points by virtue of 1 point, and TOs are tied at 96, I'm not celebrating yet...

    And can I just add, I have been beaten up a lot this week due to this "streaming" concept that I had never heard of! Whether I am through or not, I have learnt a valuable lesson!!

    It hasn't updated with Sundays games yet though if you look at our matchup? It doesnt show me with one less point - it still shows the scores as they were after Saturdays games.

    Fingers crossed. I'm hoping I will be able to celebrate a famous win... I was sitting here stewing as he pulled out incredibly efficient streaming last week.

    Thanks. Our teams were eerily similar. You would have beaten every team this week in points except mine. I would have lost turnovers to every team this week except yours. One more turnover and we would have tied 4-4. The tiebreaker is regular season head-to-head. We each won one match 5-4. The next tiebreaker is playoff seed. You were #4 and I was #5, so you would have won the match. Incredibly crazy...and lucky on my part.

    I didn't even go as far as thinking about all these things. Wow, that makes it incredibly close. Not bad. I'm truly sad that this exciting season has come to such an early end. I wrestled with myself big time thinking about whether I should paly both of my recently acquired Suns players or not. Well, turns out it was a bad case of status quo bias :D

    Congrats Tater. I just had too many injuries over the last couple weeks.

    You very nearly pulled it off. When my Vucevic went down early I knew it was going to be a war despite the lopsided score. Hixon would have been your MVP had things turned out differently. With Portland playing a whopping five games that week I never got a break from him. He just kept coming and coming and coming.


    My guys quit playing starting Thursday until Gorac saved the day at the zero hour. I knew I had four categories wrapped up early but keeping the 5th one would be difficult despite what the scoreboard indicated . I tried Tatering 3 or 4 guys but they almost destroyed my chances. They "netted" me almost nothing ( please excuse the lame pun) and one guy didnt even play. All they did was kill my percentages and get turnovers. Poor management.

    This stuf is so darned random.

    I freaking love this game though... Lets see what this week will bring. I can predict one thing that will definitely happen though - Laimbeer will win 3PTM. It's as nailed on as death and taxes

    You could dump your entire lineup for 3 point specialists and he would still win that category. Seriously. It is ridiculous.

    How is it that I keep getting outnumbered by 5 guys every week? It's uncanny. I must be miscounting.
