All those aholes that got lucky and rode DeMarco Murray all year are about to lose him for the championship week.  Good.

 

God dammit!!  I've got him in 2/3 leagues and am still alive in both.  And how is it lucky?  Maybe that he's the #1 guy, but I think I had him ranked 5th coming into this year.  He's always been a stud, just needs to stay healthy, and the Dallas line was even more upgraded combined with Romo's injury, he was primed for a big year unless he got hurt. 

 

He just picked a really, really bad time for it.  Dammit.

BTW Im totally winning the BSL league. Not to be confused with the shitty performances in the BSL Baseball and Basketball Leagues.

 

Yeah, pretty much. I thought I had a tiny little chance to take you out, but Rodgers pretty much took care of that for me by himself.

It's lucky because he's basically carried several teams in my leagues.  Nobody expected close to this kind of production.  5th was the highest I've seen him ranked anywhere.

Ok, but it's not really lucky when the 5th or 6th ranked guy preseason ends up as the #1 guy.  That probably happens most years.  There is a great deal of variance.  Hell, even someone like LeVeon Bell who was a 2nd round pick breaking out even further isn't really lucky.

 

Lucky is when Arian Foster explodes from a 7th or 8th round pick into the #1 guy.  And even in those cases, there is usually a reason to hope for a breakout from some guys, that's just the way it works.  It's a delicate balance selecting guys that have breakout potential while also not leaving yourself too exposed to having a bunch of duds.

Made the semifinals in all 3 of my leagues.

 

Sitting real pretty in my money keeper league.  Up by 50, he's got Brees tonight, but I've got Cutler, Forte, and Graham.  I'm on pace to score over 160 points. 

 

My work league I'm in good shape as well.  Down 6, but he's done and I've got Martellus Bennett and Curtis Lofton (IDP) tonight.

 

Our BSL league I'm in some trouble, though.  I'm up 22.5 over Redbox, but he's got Forte and Stills.  Yahoo likes him as a 60/40 favorite, I'd give him even better odds.  But we'll see.

 

Woohoo!  Won all 3.  I don't think I've ever made the championship game in all of my leagues before.  I committed hard to the Cowboys offense this season, I own Dez in two leagues, Murray in two, and Romo in one, they've certainly paid off.

 

I think Nickle is going to roll me in the BSL championship, especially if Murray is out.  Easily the weakest of my teams, I don't know how I made it as far as I have.  Montee Ball was a bust, none of my trades really panned out, I guess the saving grace was some good waiver pickups, Anderson's been great and I had some big weeks out of Oliver during the middle of the year.  Consistently have gotten good QB play between Romo and Wilson despite not using an early pick on either, which has helped.  But man, I can't believe the group of WR I'm running out there, embarrassing for a championship game.  Vincent Jackson, Torrey Smith, Sammy Watkins, Andre Johnson, Michael Floyd.  Ugh.

Mark Ingram foiled my season in my most important league of the three. Garbage time TD that the Saints didnt even need. I lose by 1. Other things that cost me, A.J. Green had 49 yards, meaning one more gives me a point and I win the tie. Flacco was four yards shy of giving me another point. He had Ravens D, and Bottles threw a prayer, gift INT at the end for two easy unnecessary points. He had T.Y. Hilton who had 50 yards, just one less yard and he loses the point.

I need a stat correction badly. Id probably do something im not proud of to get it.

Well the good news is, everyone can start studying for Fantasy Baseball!  DDDD is telling me that Steve Pearce is legit, so I will be targeting him.

Vomit.

 

Cutler v Det or Eli @ St Louis in my money league final?  Not really considering any of them, but Dalton v Den, Tannehill v Min, and Orton @ Oak are on the waiver wire.

 

 

In another league...Derrek Anderson v Cle, Colin Kaerpernick v SD, or pick up RG3 on waivers v Phi?

Cutler is benched, from what I'm seeing. Don't know if it's official.

I picked up Tannehill and started him in my money league championship...very happy with that decision.

I would have won my league already if I hadnt made the wrong choice between Gates and Olsen for the millionth time, but I can do it tonight if Hill and Green combine for 17 or more points. Hopefully the Bengals can lose but still help me make some cash
