Very important lesson to learn.  It's okay to scan the experts rankings, but you always have to make your own decision based on your specific league settings, scoring system, opponent, remaining roster, and the like.  Rankings are a general guideline to be considered but ignored under the right circumstances.  Projections, on the other hand, must be studiously and steadfastly ignored in any and all circumstances.

If I never looked at rankings and just went with my analysis/gut I would do infinitely better at this game. I tell myself this every year and every year I don't learn.

Damn #1 seed in my league bout to post up his lowest score of the year and lose  his matchup... he avg 126/PG and outscore 2nd place by 125. His previous low score was 80 during his bye last week. Hes playing 6th seed and will lose by 40 it seems.

 

Cruel game we play

Same here I always set my lineups 2 to 3 weeks in advance and generally those lineups would win me games that I lost cuz I went ahead and made changes to it... never fails even tell myself to stop doing last minutes moves etc and still do it. Been at it for like 6 seasons...

Thats happening a lot this week. A lot of C+ and B players did great this week and top scorers are hurt. I snuck into the playoffs as the 5th seed and am beating the 1 seed thats been unbeatable. He has Gordon, Conner, Allen, Boyd, AJones. A team of great picks just wrecked from injury.

Up by 15 with my Michael Thomas against his CMC (standard league).

 

In our ESPN league you get 2 pt bonus for 40 yard TD pass and another 2 pt bonus for a 50 yard TD pass. Of course CMC throws a 50 yard TD pass...of course he does.

 

I lost by 1.5 points. Season over. Awful.

 

*side note: Ertz getting me 2.2 points last night didn't help.....

 

Just brutal man....just ******** brutal

Needed 29.5 from Kamara, Michael Thomas, and Ian Thomas. I was down .5 with 3 minutes to go...Kamara and Thomas can't get me the last few yards to seal the deal and Carolina gets the ball back. 4th and 5, last play of the game...Ian Thomas drops a catchable pass and my season is over, lost by .5 points to the 6-7 team who got 45 points from his defense and kicker.

That's why I hate those kind of bonus points.  I have a league that does a bonus point for a rush, reception, or TD that's 40+ yards.  Everyone else in the league likes it though so I can't do anything about it.

I should also mention the guy I played against had his kicker put up 22 ******** points.

 

Every year this kind of thing happens...and every year I say never again. LOL

I hope JJ Natson and DJ Moore have to poop themselves at their wedding, if they aren’t married already. 

 

Lost by 5 and Lamar Miller in my flex definitely did not help. Ugh. #1 seed, outscored the #2 team by 100 with an 11-2 record. Came crashing down against the #5 seed.

50% luck (any uncontrollable variables such as injuries, turnovers, etc.)

30% schedule/matchups (real games and your opponent)

20% skills (draft, WW, trades, start/sit)

 

All my guys had s---y matchups this week and they were all studs and I lost. And next week they all have amazing schedules SMH!  Some advice, ALWAYS look ahead and check your playoff schedules!

I think there's always talk of players to target around the trade deadline with an emphasis on looking towards the playoffs weeks.

If I remember right, Cam was talked about as being one of those guys.  So you never know.
