Limping into the Finals
 
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.

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...

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.

Playing today
I wish


Had a absolute disaster of a season.
Put most of it down to not paying any attention outside of Saints football since i was sick a couple of years back.

Odel being my 1st pick didn't help.
Though i started making some games up late trading away Cooks for Brees late on.
I had Roethlisberger early and he was a bum. The fact some saying he is in contention for MVP shows how much of a joke the awards can be

Opponent had the Vikings defense against a Rodgers-less Packers Offense...

Jaguars Defense that had been stout all season got blasted by the 49ers defense?!?

Crabtree, Cooks combined for 1 FPt, one...FML...

I had a rough regular season, but by staying active on the waiver wire all year I managed to put together a great team and sneak into the playoffs. Took out the number one seed on my way to the championship game. Lost the game because I sat Julio lol... I was pretty devastated. Julio has been a massive disappointment all year and I felt good about Robert Woods. I was wrong.

that sucks...
I didn't have any 'coaching' decisions to make bc I had 2-3 starters out. Got lucky and had everyone get 12-15 points, and Steelers defense won it for me
that $150 is going directly into the NOLA economy playoff weekend!
