Limping into the Finals

this is a discussion within the Fantasy Football Community Forum; with this mediocre lineup: Stafford, Cohen, CJ Anderson, Thomas, Patterson, Gronk, Lutz, Steelers D, and Olsen at the TE-WR_RB flex lost Burkhead, M.Lee and A.Brown last week my league does return yards, so hopefully Patterson is healthy....

Re: Limping into the Finals

Had best record going into playoffs, but I had a number of late injuries including Wentz...

Other three teams had waiver rights because of their lesser records and picked up all available quarterbacks except Foles...

In addition, they've blocked all trades I was involved this year (I'm not in the clique) including me trading Ingram for Fournette Week 5...

Then they voted (not before the season, but now) that all the prizes would go to the League Champion and one prize to highest scored game...

So I picked up Foles and, well, I'm in the Championship on a 160 pt traditional format game (now high season mark)...

Karma is a b*tch...

Go get it!

Basically everyone I start I picked up or traded for-
I had last pick 1st round and first pick 2nd round and went Thomas-Gronk. Everybody else either got hurt or sucked (Allen, Addullah, Carr) My month with Deshaun Watson was heavenly though

Julio screwed me. Worst draft money I ever spent. Had the best record but 24 pt kicker Gould and 48 point Gurley did me in. Still would have had it if Julio showed up.

Julio has been very frustrating; year before I had him he did the same thing...

Years I didn't have him, I was knocked out of the playoffs by a combination of Manning-Julio or Brees-Julio...

Very Frustrating as he's playing the Saints today and facing Lattimore - oh well, F**k the Fantasy Championship...

Want Lattimore to shut down Julio, at least when he's facing him, and for Lattimore to clinch DROTY and the Saints to beat the Falcons...

Re: Limping into the Finals

In my family and friends league, I've got Kamara, Thomas, Lutz and the Saints D.

I came in second in the regular season and I'm playing in the championship game.

In the 8 years this league has been going, I've never had a falcon on my team.

Whoever had Gurley and lost today needs to stop playing FF.
