How do you shithouse in fantasy? :D

I think I've just been quite consistent, no mega scores but also I don't think I've ever scored below 110 or thereabouts, with some matchup luck that should do the trick.

Don't think I have enough "blow up potential" in my team to go all the way but we'll see how it goes.
I wanted to say lucky but that sounded too simplistic :D
I remember you winning a matchup with just 70 or 80 points :lol:

@Sandyman Is it #1 seed faces lowest remaining seed, #2 seed highest remaining seed? Or just #1 vs winner #4 vs #5 and the #2 vs winner #3 vs #6?
It should be like the NFL play offs. It’s silly otherwise.

EG - 1 always faces lowest seed.
It's the default ESPN bracket. Trust them to not do things right. Another one to keep note of for next year - manually change the bracket. Sorry about the very late response but things have been crazy for me and I logged in after a long time.

Looks like you may get a chance to beat me in the playoffs!
Nice jinx! :lol:

I have lost a lot of close ones so still scared of this one with Sandyman specially because he has two RB’s left
Fml now I lose my playoff game by 0.34 with the Rams basically not throwing at all in the 4th quarter . What a shit end
0.54!! :D
I still can't believe I won that game. Was pleased that Mahomes finally had a monster game after a long time but then saw you had Hill who got even more points than Mahomes. And then Chase and Cooper got 1.3 and 2.8 points and I was sure it was over, especially since you had more players yet to play as well.
Incredibly unlucky!

Yeah it became 0.54 after Stafford took the knee to end the game and basically laughing on my grave. So so annoyed

I lost a final once because of a Matt Ryan knee and 0.3 points down. What a loss.

Fantasy football at it's finest :drool:

Looks like @Sandyman is in the driving seat for our Semi.
Unjinx! Unjinx! Unjinx!
It's just Deebo doing Deebo things - long way to go.

Fantasy tip : Never meddle with your teams when you're celebrating Christmas and have had too much to drink. Especially, if you play 3-4 leagues in the same app/site.

Didn't want to risk waiting on Gibson, so moved Dillon in for him in the AFC. But, when checking all the teams again before the kickoff, noticed Dillon is still on the bench and so moved him again quickly before the game started. Imagine my horror today morning when I see Edmonds on the bench with 26 points and Dillon sitting in his place with 8 points :o:mad:

Combine that with me already missing Lamar and Kelce, and it's over! Congrats @RobinLFC on making the finals!

Yeah I'm not overthinking this year. Too much to mess around with the constant covid changes.

Yeah was counting my blessings when I saw Dillon in your lineup. Kelce is tough but was a difficult situation with Ertz playing last night, with Covid I’d have done the same and go for the points, he didn’t kill you.

Still very much open imo. Deebo did great and Ryan can hit 20 easily against the Lions.

I brought in Huntley instead of sticking with Tannehill and passing up on Wentz. And now he's out so I'm going with Trevor Lawrence and hoping he turns up. Also Kelce now confirmed out. Fun.

Yeah having terrible luck is one thing but screwing up your own team with stupid mistakes is just something else. I mean, I would not have dropped Edmonds even if Connor had returned. Just sucks it ends like this.
Matty can't even hit his targets let alone 20 points. Have half a mind to pick up Trevor or even Big Ben as a hail mary.

Worst part is @GloryHunter07 has Kupp and Mattison in the AFC league so conflicted about them doing well :lol:

Well that's me out of the final in the AFC. Covid, underperformance and injuries wrecked my lineup.

Unlucky man. Your team really shit the bed.

Now have to hope I get some players back from covid for the final.

Tough luck @RobinLFC

Waddle did his bit but a better game script by the Saints that involved Kamara more and a non injury to Robinson would probably have been enough to see you through.

Congrats @Sandyman, a team with Kupp, Samuel and Kelce is definitely one deserving of a final!

So does this mean that @Sandyman is in both finals? Bravo!

In the Caf AFC final we have 6th ranked vs 5th ranked which goes to show you just have to grind away and get into the playoffs then anything can happen. Record means nothing in the playoffs!

My aim is always to make the playoffs. It's all a lottery after that.

I was 6th! Still can't believe I won the first playoff game - that too by just 0.54 points. Incredibly lucky!

Even in the NFC, the finals is between the 3rd and 4th placed teams.

My aim is always to make the playoffs. It's all a lottery after that.
Looks like it's up to me to stop you from repeating!

@Sandyman team is balling out and my bench is outscoring my starters so that will probably be all she wrote.

Congrats!

Cheers mate! And tough luck. Think if not for Chase's insane haul, it would be lot closer - the rest of the team just performed on par.

Tough luck @Sandyman. You were annoyingly close for most of the game.
Congrats mate! It's tough to keep up when everyone on your team is putting up double digit points :lol:

All thanks to the unstoppable Braxton Berrios.
That was an inspired selection and that first half was incredible. And, in typical Jets fashion, they lost the game after screwing it up. But, you still had Rashaad Penny coming on later and taking the game away from me.

@Damien

In line with last years (and if they want to of course), @Sandyman should get a "2021 AFC Fantasy League winner" and @entropy a "2021 NFC Fantasy League winner" (see @RussellWilson's tagline above for reference). I should get a "2021 NFL Team Wins Pool winner".

Will only change theirs if they want it changed. Will change yours now.

Bollocks to Robin's tagline - I didn't get one when I won two years straight

also - this fantasy league is the pleb fantasy league so shouldn't be eligible for tagline changes.
