I'm up by 19 points and have Gio Bernard left.

My opponent has AJ Green, Joique Bell, and Justin Tucker left.

What are my odds of winning?


Also. **** Tennesee. All they had to do was not score 10 points in the last 5 minutes and let Arizona run out the clock instead of giving it to goddamn mendenall. Or if not, actually score on their first OT possession so that Arizona wouldn't give it to goddamn mendenhall. Now goddamn mendenhall has 4 extra points that he wouldn't have had. I would have had this game in the bag...

Bush will play, but Bell is always a solid bet for 4-5 receptions and 6-10 carries. He also gets some goal-line work. He's very solid in my 1/2 PPR format (pictured above).

I'm pissed that I didn't flex Asiata or Todman. They did excellent on my bench.

I think you should pull it off baring a shootout in the Cinci/Pitt game. Hopefully Reggie is super limited so Joique gets a ton of touches. Good luck my man

I caught a lucky break that my opponent had Greg Jennings on the bench, and that Knowshon **** the bed bigtime. But by the same token, I started Tamme because the yahoo app was buzzing about him and I was too busy to notice that he was pulled from starting at the last minute. Also, Woodhead and Vereen pooh poohed some bad point totals, but at least Keenan Allen, Cordarrelle Patterson, and IND defense bailed me out...

And I'm sorry, but I hope that Bell is shut down. No offense, I just need to win my match...

I have A.J Green and I am trying to outscore everyone in the playoffs each week. All I need is 9 pts from the A.J Green/Antonio Brown combo and I will have done it yet again.

Yahoo is terrible at FF. I guess the actual system is fairly streamlined, but it drops huge bombshells on matchup advice on almost a weekly basis. Like the Tamme thing...

Like the Tamme thing...Most of the league formats just use Rotowire. Yahoo! has their little "Matchup Rating," but I don't pay much attention to it. As odd as it sounds, I think my problem with Yahoo! is that I use their mock draft service so much that my teams are always stacked, which makes setting my lineup incredible difficult. In other leagues, my teams are much thinner, but by the same token, far more top-heavy.

In the GMB league, my RB depth was crazy good. I had Gore, Moreno, L.Bell, Stacy, TRich (who for the first 8 or so weeks was a "must-start" guy that was supposed to go off). I also had Graham, and Romo. I tried to consolidate my depth into better receivers since I had lost Wayne, but I bought the wrong guys in Cruz and Decker/Nelson. Roddy also never got his game together, which sucked for me.

I guess I can't really be disappointed if I lose today. I'm in the final 4, with a team that is entire free agents (the only pick out of my first 10 draft picks that isn't on IR or spent many games inactive was Eli Manning, who I dropped week 5). I was still able to put together 80-90 point rosters every week despite that. That has to make the the GM of the year in my league, right? Too bad that award doesn't mean crap, but if I won, that means I could rub it in everyone's face...

I went to the championship game (but lost it) on a team that was autodrafted last year (tony romo with the 2nd round lol), because I didn't know the team existed until week 3. So yeah, people must be pissed at me.

Friends (well, everyone's friends with the league manager anyway), $20 buy-in. The best part is that it's an NFL-style waiver, where if a guy clears waivers after two days they revert to FA that can be picked up without a waiver claim. (Also, you have to start someone at least once for them to go to waivers, otherwise if you drop them they immediately become FA). I don't think I could play in a league where everyone is permanently on waivers... I'd be dead last all the time...

Pittsburgh has them on lockdown right now. That doesn't bode well for me at least... Yeah green is locked down but that means I only have a 19 point budget to hold Bell and Tucker. Also, it puts Cincy into pure pass mode, which means more green and less bernard...

Mike Wallace vs Buffalo is worth at least a look. Depending on the result of tonight's game, Greg Jennings vs cincy maybe as well...

If you're feeling REALLY desperate, pick up Nicks vs Detroit. But I wouldn't recommend that last one.

Deangelo Williams is on waivers? Really? Get him pronto. I'd drop ogababanana for him honestly... he hasn't done much.

Also, take a look at starting law firm.... he's been getting about 50/50 touches with Gio... been pissing me off about that. I would have started him instead of dropping Wallace for Ogabanawtfever

Oh and another thing: I think Welker is going to be back. If not, get Andre Caldwell. If he's taken, throw Amendola into the mix.

I cut MJD and Wallace, but I shouldn't have a problem getting any player I want since everyone else is either eliminated or set on their rosters.

I don't want Roddy as my WR3 vs. SF, so it'll either be Nicks vs. Detroit, or Wallace vs. Buffalo.

As for my RB2, if Peterson can't go, I have some decent options on waivers. DeAngelo, Ivory, Ellington, Todman. I also have Sproles and BGE on my bench.

Get the lawfirm out of there and get Gio some carries. Hopefully he can get involved in the passing game because it looks like there could be more passes than expected with Pitt jumping up 14 early.

I know I hate that. All that said, I started the Giants when they played I think it was either Oakland or GB (or both). The one where Moore blocked the punt was a week where I was literally carried by the Gmen defense.

I'd love to see a league where ST gets, say, 2 points credit for a punt-return-TD, and the returner gets credit for 4.

Sad thing is I was pretty much forced into this philosophy after week 7 when my entire roster got hurt. In all honesty the only big changes I had made prior to week 7 were trading Rodgers for Wilson and Wilson, as well as picking up Knowshon. I was reliably starting Reggie Wayne, Julio Jones, Knowshon, Finley/Miller, and Doug Martin. But it just goes to show that, you can put a bunch of 80-90 point games up, and with the right breaks (such as a player ****ting the bed), you can string some wins together.

One last point of irony: The guy I'm playing is the guy I traded Knowshon to. I wouldn't have beaten him week 9 if i didnt make the seemingly one-sided trade (meaning that my one-game margin to playoff contention would have been lost), and now this week Knowshon put up only 5.4 points.

80-90 points isn't a lot in most formats. Is it QB-Running Back-Running Back-WR-WR-Tight End-Flex-D/K?

Man, I'm so stoked right now. Without even winning any championships yet, I'm already guaranteed $1710. If I win them all, $2600.

yes. But 90 or so points is actually the average weekly in my league. 12-team, non-ppr...

And no, I don't get it right all the time by any means. Week 12 was a disaster when I started Case Keenum. He was playing Jacksonville, and this was before we knew how bad Houston actually was... Also, I started Ogabanana because everyone was so hot on how he could do.

That week I posted 57 total points, lowest in the league by about 20 points. So yes, my way can spectacularly blow up in your face, and if you rely on it, it WILL at some point. So yeah, I don't actually recommend doing this unless you're forced to. But I was forced to. Since the league is redraft for 2014 prior to going to full dynasty after the 2014 season (unrelated, we're also contracting to 10 teams since two of the managers want out, part of why it's redraft for one year), it was either GG season week 7, or start rummaging for scrap.

Toad on the other hand has a 21 point budget, and Tucker has 12-13 points, and Bell has 4.5.

Damn that is gonna be tight. Hopefully there will be no more FG's for Baltimore and Reggie gets the rest of the carries!

Lmao there are clearly forces out there that want me to suffer in fantasy. after that 3rd stafford pick i still had the lead 80.70-80.64. all the ravens have to do is kneel but of course lets give it to rice so he can run a few yards for no reason. the result i lose by 2. this kind of garbage happens to me all the time. im done with fantasy. clearly all i get is bad luck.

Last year, I was playing my good friend in a really pivotal matchup. He had AJ Green on SNF -- all my players were done, and AJ was his last guy. He was down 6.9 points going in, and in the first quarter, Green caught an 8 yard TD.

Shut out the rest of the game. He was "done" with FF, too. (He wasn't.)

Tough loss man.

At least you didn't have luck so bad that your entire starting roster gets injured...

Could go either way.

At least you're not 100% boned like me.

Yeah I got blown out bigtime. Allen, Gio, Woodhead, and PItta did okay but not great. Wright and Andre Caldwell did precisely **** for me.

And to figure I got tired of Vereen derping hard and benched him... playing wouldn't have made a difference though... it was an across the board cut... only Vinatieri eclipsed his projection, and since I saw Cousins on the waiver wire I started him to no real effect (although Cutler will need to have a 50 point game to have tipped the balance...)

I've got 2 guys playing now and 1 playing tomorrow and I'm up 7 points. Sweet - even with Brees' crap game and Colston doing next to nothing for me we lock it up. Nice

If, by "Prowess", you mean getting 3 1st/early 2nd picks on your team (Peterson, Dez, Graham), then I'll allow it...
