Week 12 Fantasy Wrap-Up


This was a very rough week for me in fantasy football.  I not only lost all three of my games, but I may have just been knocked out of the playoffs with my loss in the official POD league.  Michael Turner and Terrell Owens did their best to give me a shot at winning, but I simply didn't have enough fire power.

Just go away Favre (ahtrap) 122.92
STUD: QB Aaron Rodgers 27.52
DUD: RB Brandon Jacobs 0
BENCHED: QB Kyle Orton 11.46
OPTIMUM: 132.02 RATING: 93%
Better Than Millen (me) 104.02
STUD: RB Michael Turner 35.7
DUD: D/ST Packers -1
BENCHED: QB Jake Delhomme 25.6
OPTIMUM: 126.2 RATING: 82%

In the POD overflow league, I lost 111.52-94.16 and had a terrible coach rating of 73%.  My optimum was 128.02, mainly because I had Philip Rivers, Leon Washington, and Mark Bradley on the bench.  I'm still 8-4 in that league and will probably win my division, so no big worries there.

In the SBN/AOL league, I'm playing for the division title and a first-round bye.  I have clinched a playoff spot already, but I am going to have to fight off the second-place team in my division, who is now only a game behind for first-place after beating me 120.4-108.  Lance Moore did his best last night to keep me in the game, but my opponent had Aaron Rodgers, Michael Turner, and the Buccaneers defense/special team.  Those three put up over 90 points combined by themselves, so it's not a surprise that I lost.

With one week left in the regular season, here are the standings in the official POD league (teams in italics would make the playoffs if the season already ended):

Charlie Sanders Division

  1. Just go away Favre (9-3)
  2. Underdogs (7-5)
  3. Better Than Millen (6-6)
  4. Maize 'n' Blue Jays (5-7)

Bobby Layne Division

  1. SnotKnocker's (6-6)
  2. Motown Madmen (5-7)
  3. West Coast Lions (4-8)
  4. LA Leos (4-8)

Doak Walker Division

  1. The Gosder Cherilus Posse (9-3)
  2. Calvin and the Chipmunks (8-4)
  3. Detroit's Few Good Men (7-5)
  4. Rudys Warhawks (2-10)

For me to make the playoffs, I would have to win my game and hope that one of the 7-5 teams lose.  Since Detroit's Few Good Men is playing the worst team in the league, Rudys Warhawks, I'm going to have to hope that Just go away Favre gets a "W" over Underdogs.  Should Underdogs and I tie, I would probably win the tiebreaker as I will likely end up scoring more points than him (my cushion right now is over 100 points I believe).  The final week of the season certainly will be exciting with playoff spots on the line.
