    You'll play next season and make the playoffs. This league is mostly about luck, and you had very little this season. Next year will probably find Myself and Billlaimbeer on the bottom of the standings...

    If it is all about luck, then that does explain why I am ALWAYS at the bottom of the standings in fantasy football. I believe it all started when I drafted Peyton Manning a few years ago and he went down with a season-ending injury in the first game of the year.

    They'll probably put you on the cover of "Madden 2013"

    Football is a lot of luck. You really need all your guys to fire in the same week or have one or 2 guys go for 20 points each.

    I finished 9th after scoring the 3rd most points. Don't beat yourself up for not being successful at fantasy football. Basketball on the other hand...

    I really have enjoyed this season...
    I was surprised at the amount of luck needed to win in this league.
    Fortunately, I had Drew Brees this season, who was able to have some really big weeks for me...
    and...I got rid of that crappy defense that I started with and switched to Houston...........

    Your roster provided me with Lance Moore, whom you dropped earlier.
    Hopefully...he has a good week. :)

    Yeah I have a bye this week so I won't fret much. I updated my roster for effect so you guys will know what to expect when it comes time to deal with the GYMPs !
    *
    P.S. I can't believe how sad some of your teams are. Some of you are starting guys with 50 total fantasy points. Its the playoffs - you need your big guns now. Not some bum you pulled off someones cut pile !
    No 14 team leagues next year !

    Glad you got something out of him. He was a bench warmer for me and even though he has done well the past few weeks I still would not be comfortable starting him. He is still only seeing 20-30 snaps per game which is about 4th on their team for WR's. But at the moment he seems to be making the most of them.

    I was surprised to see that all of my starters have more thna 80 points.
    My bench though is filled with Gerry Cooneys..................

    I am proud at my ability to pull bums off the cut pile..............

    I just remembered my opponent, Cowardly, had a wide receiver playing last night. I checked the box score before going to the fantasy page and saw Antonio Brown scored a 79 point touchdown with 2:52 left in the game. I knew then that he must be the guy Cowardly owned. That got him 21 points instead of 6. :messer: In the playoffs, guys come out of nowhere to get career games (or weeks) against me every time!! :croc:

    To add insult to injury, I owned Brown earlier in the year but I dumped him when I read how he wasn't running routes correctly and stuff. :lecturer:

    Looks like another early playoff exit ...:wave::car:

    Truth be told, I'm just in a hurry to go fishing with Laimbeer. I hope he saved me a seat on his yacht...or bass boat...or canoe...or piece of floating driftwood, or whatever. I can almost see us now-------------> :fish::stooges:

    I've got my eyes set on the Consolation Championship, Drath, so you better get the lures, bobbers, hooks, bait, and other various fishing gear ready without me. My team is not going down without a fight.

    Antonio Brown has been great all season, give him props where they are due. As a Steelers fan, I am very excited to see Brown's progression. Wallace and Brown will be the best wideout pairing in the league.

    nemo sent me a private message saying that he was hurt he wasn't invited along with all the other stars. He loves swimming.

    [​IMG] (Maybe that is why he was worried about what was on the grill? Maybe he was the honored guest)??
