My Pride Of Detroit Fantasy Football League Reign Continues

The 2011 edition of the Pride of Detroit Fantasy Football League came to a close on Monday night after the New Orleans Saints/Atlanta Falcons game ended. Going into the game, I led lions_sucker by 16.74 points in the championship. Thanks to solid performances by both Julio Jones and Marques Colston (my final two players) and less-than-stellar performances by Lance Moore and Jimmy Graham (lions_sucker's final two players), I ended up winning the title game by a score of 126.20-94.06.

By winning the championship, my streak of titles in the POD FFL is now up to three. I won the league in both 2009 and 2010, and now I have won the league three years in a row. After Week 9 when I was a mediocre 4-5, a third consecutive title seemed unlikely, but I rattled off four straight victories to close out the regular season and won all three games in the playoffs to walk away with the title.

Interestingly enough, I managed to win this year's title despite losing Matt Schaub to a season-ending injury midway through the year. I turned to Matt Hasselbeck for a week before picking up Tim Tebow and inserting him into the starting lineup. Despite struggling mightily at times, Tebow turned out to be a pretty good addition, and he, along with guys like Ray Rice, Colston, Victor Cruz, Jones, Steven Jackson and Rob Bironas, helped me take home my third straight league championship.

To those who participated in the league, I want to say thanks for another fun year, and I look forward to competing for title No. 4 in 2012.
