2018 Vent & Rant Thread


Recommended Posts

Greg Z was my highest scorer this week.  One starter in double digits (Mixon 11).  Out of the Playoffs (had a chance for last spot) 

 

Goff

David J

Mixon

Evans

Sanders

Ekeler

 

Opponent was 1-10, had Kareem Hunt in starting lineup, and hadn’t logged in since Oct 28th.  I scored 70 in Full PPR.  

 

Bench; Cohen, Dalvin, J White, Boyd (all great days) 

 

RIP 2018 FFF (**** fantasy football) Squad

lost Hunt to the stupidity and then Green to the injury. First overall team so you can imagine how confident I feel going into the playoffs. <_<

Do you get a bye? You don't have decent bench options? Hopefully you at least got Ware. Maybe get a DJ Moore if he's still out there.

In my money league [12-team], I will finish this week probably within single digits of the points lead. Heck, if Josh Adams can't play tonight, I'll be the overall points leader by 0.2 points. And this is a league where top 6 make the playoffs, not top 4. 

 

And yet I'm going to finish 6-7 and just outside the playoffs. 

Very similar boat. 7-6. 2nd in points. 

 

It wasn’t even like guys were going ham on me either. 2nd in PF, 6th in PA. 

 

All Play record of 97-46. No super high extremes to bump my PF either. 

 

Every projection ive created puts me in the playoffs in a 12 team league. I should have had about 8.75 wins (or 9 wins rounded). 

 

In the last 2 weeks, the perfect combination of certain teams winning and certain teams losing kept me from the playoffs. 

 

2 teams made the playoffs with negative net scoring and a losing All-play record. They each went 9-4. Unbelievable. Spanked both of them too. They went a combined 1-3 against me and 17-5 against everyone else. 

 

I never really had a bad beat either. My worst beats were watching how the other games went in my league unfolded.

I strategically threw week 13 to go 10-3 to pickup a weaker opponent round 1 in the show. 

 

If I would of gone 11-2 dropping 240.2 for the week, just 17 off the all time league scoring record. (League Year 9) 

 

11-2 would of ranked as the third best season all time, but it's all about the path to the title belt. 

 

A little pissed I missed a little history. ;)

Funny thing, that karma...

 

So often, supposed weak teams get hot and absolutely destroy top ranked teams in fantasy playoffs. 

 

Good luck with that.

 

Nice stealth brag, BTW.

Guy I was playing this week was guaranteed to get the team with Hunt and Gordon in 1st round if he lost to me (and I would get bye), and he would avoid the dominant team in the leagues side of the playoff draw. I noticed it but didn't tell him since I think that is not my place, he text me on Saturday and said he was thinking of sitting Mahomes for that exact reason. Never did. Now we are facing each other in the playoffs this week and on that side of the draw of the dominant team. 

 

But overall I agree, I think it's wrong to do stuff like that to try and dictate playoff seeding.

you're doing this thread wrong. 

 

For throwing a game and for bragging about how awesome your team is in the vent thread i'm hoping karma comes back fast and it all blows up in your face. Good luck with that.   :D

Ertz getting tackled at the 2 yard line last night! Really changed who my opponent is in the first playoff matchup. 

 

He gets 2 more points last night, I play the guy with Conner who is his rb1 and is now declared OUT. 

 

Now i won’t be able to get samuels and I was cruising along in first place but week 12 hit hard. 

 

Lost melvin Gordon and jack doyle. 

 

I need to win this week without gordon possibly. Here’s to hoping he plays (I know, about a 5% chance)

Facing a guy rolling out Kamara, CMC, & Lindsay at RB this week and Mahomes at QB and Im scratching my head trying to figure out which two of Jackson, Samuels, Wilson, Zay, or Pettis to roll out thanks to injuries to Conner & Green. And somehow I still have some confidence. Every year some waiver wire trash seems to beat stud playoff teams. Why not me?

On the other end of the spectrum, I just spent 15 minutes making lineup decisions for my bye week.

I’m starting to not like fantasy football anymore. Too much luck and unpredictableness is involved and everyone (even the one’s who dont know squat about football) are experts all of a sudden because of all the multiple fantasy football advice outlets that are available to everyone. I think we should get rid of H2H and go with a total points based leagues with WW restrictions, I have one guy in my league who picks up/drops players almost everyday and it’s annoying. I make the playoffs every year but come playoff time it’s predicted solely on pure luck.
