    AB saved his best for last, McCaffrey was a beast, and my late pick up of Jamaal Williams carried me today. Justin Tucker would’ve had 20+ had he made them two 50+ yarders.

    Started the season 1-3, went on the win 8/9 the rest of the season to end up with the 1 seed and won it all.

    Yeah i was way overthinking it. Should have just gone with the smart matchup. But oh well, won my league last year and 2nd place this year, can’t complain too much

    Ended up putting up 200+ and won my championship and that's with leaving Damien Williams on the bench (started Henry). Went back to back in this league.

    Mahomes
    Brown
    Thomas
    Mixon
    Henry
    Samuels
    Woods
    Tucker

    Had an insanely inconsistent playoffs (12 team shallow league). Won 243.52-131.08 in the QF, then lost 152.58-115.48 in the SF (absolutely awful week with injuries and underperforming. My best player was probably Robert Foster), then won the third place game 215.88-140.88.

    It was a little disappointing, as it was one of the best teams I rostered on paper, possibly the best, but had some of my top players struggle at the worst times. But I'll always take a top 3 finish, nonetheless.

    Congrats to all!

    EDIT: To show you guys just how ridiculously inconsistent my team was, here were my performances week 9 and beyond:

    Week 9: 159.12
    Week 10: 210.70
    Week 11: 159.52
    Week 12: 260.80
    Week 13: 152.86
    QF: 243.52
    SF: 115.48
    Third: 215.88

    Your scoring probably works differently than mine, but you can probably tell how all-over-the-map my team was at the end. Some of it was bye-weeks, but also had players like Julio Jones and Saquon Barkley have bad performances.

    I started 2-3 and ended up losing 2 more games the rest of the season (lost 2 by less than 2 points). Got to the playoffs and crushed the first two rounds. The kid who won the the league (beat me) I outscored him by double the week before.... but Rodgers and Ben went off for him and scored 100 points for him (I lost 210-235). Happens in leagues

    I won my keeper league this year. 1pt ppr w/idp
    Watson
    Hopkins
    Thomas
    Hill
    Fournette
    Mixon
    Kittle
    Luck (superflex)
    Fairburn

    We’re an 8 man league. 4 keepers. I’m thinking my keepers will be Watson and the 3 WR’s.

    In a superflex, I'd actually let go of Hill and keep both Watson and Luck.

    Tough call, but at least you don't need to make that decision now. I'm pretty sure I find a way to get Joe Mixon in there, too.

    I value QB's in Superflex, however in an 8team format they're a bit easier to get. If someone went Hopkins, Thomas, Hill, Mixon and threw both QBs back I would understand it. Depends on where you draft and who else you think will be kept, though.

    Thanks for the input!
    Being an 8 man league leaves a lot of options out there for all positions.

    I think it’ll be tough for all 3 WR’s to repeat their seasons but 3 WR’s with over 300 points is tantalizing to keep.

    Fournette was a keeper last year but I can’t trust him right now. Mixon is the RB I would keep but I think I can grab quality backs in the draft.

    I believe I’ll have last pick so I’ll be picking back to back every time. My thinking was keep Deshaun and the WR’s and then go RB+QB then RB + TE and then go from there.

    Anyone else playing week 17? It's not worth much but I'm playing for third place which is mostly just bragging rights. Still gotta go and try to win though.

    As a rookie ffer, I'm starting to understand how hard it is to find good replacements for players sitting this week out. I probably should have been stashing guys a week ago. Now I'm mostly waiting to see if any scratches are announced and if I can get to them before other guys in the league, lol.

    I'm playing this week and I have a tough decision on my RB/Flex position. Our league runs with 1 RB slot and 2 FLEX spots. So I've got these guys for three spots and I don't know what to do lol

    Gus Edwards vs Cle
    Damien Williams vs Oak
    Jamaal Williams vs Det
    David Johnson @ Sea
    Lamar Miller vs Jax
    Peyton Barber vs Atl

    My first thought was Edwards and the two Williams, but Ware looks like he is back and Miller is now healthy. I don't like sitting Johnson, but I don't see the Cardinals scoring much in Seattle.

    One of my leagues goes to week 17 every year. Wound up reaching the championship game again only to lose after several of my guys underachieved. I was going for a dynasty with a three-peat but will just have to settle for a back to back and loss in the finals.

    The other league I did horrible in but wound up finishing 7th out of 10. Worst finish in a while.
