Week 16 Fantasy Wrap-Up


Congratulations to Just go away Favre, a.k.a ahtrap, for winning the official Pride of Detroit fantasy football league.  He had an amazing Sunday night combination of Brandon Jacobs and DeAngelo Williams that combined for 7 touchdowns and a whopping 62 points.  Congrats to Calvin and the Chipmunks, a.k.a. mgersz, for finishing second.  It would have taken a lot to beat a team with both Williams and Jacobs on it.

Calvin and the Chipmunks (mgersz) 67.18
STUD: QB Tony Romo 18.28
DUD: D/ST Steelers 0
BENCHED: QB Chad Pennington 26.2
Just go away Favre (ahtrap) 118.1
STUD: RB DeAngelo Williams 34.8
DUD: D/ST Buccaneers -3
BENCHED: RB Fred Jackson 17.3
OPTIMUM: 124.3 RATING: 95%

In the third-place game, I had an absolutely terrible coach rating and ended up losing in blowout fashion.  I had Tarvaris Jackson and Visanthe Shiancoe on the bench, leading to a pathetic finish to the season for me.  The Gosder Cherilus Posse, a.k.a. The Prodigy, finished strong to end up in third-place.

Better Than Millen (me) 66.2
STUD: RB Michael Turner 13
DUD: TE Dustin Keller 0.2
BENCHED: TE Visanthe Shiancoe 25.6
OPTIMUM: 110.82 RATING: 59%
The Gosder Cherilus Posse (The Prodigy) 110.56
STUD: QB Jay Cutler 29.36
DUD: D/ST Giants -1
BENCHED: WR Santonio Holmes 15.3
OPTIMUM: 116.46 RATING: 94%

LA Leos (sgdbw90), who was actually was in second-to-last place in the regular season, beat Maize 'n' Blue Jays (THE_J) 102.26-96.18 to win the consolation playoffs.  Underdogs (Sig Sauer) beat SnotKnocker's (Ace BangerTheGuru) 103.84-73.84 in the 9th place game.

In the POD overflow league, Pineapple Express, who was actually the #6 seed, beat Raging Rhinos to win the championship.  It was a great run for Pineapple Express, especially since he finished last in his division during the regular season.  Granted, every team in his division made the playoffs and it was the toughest one in the league, but it's still unusual for a #6 seed to win the championship.

I would like to give a big thanks to all of the people that participated in my two fantasy football leagues this year.  I had a blast and can't wait to do it again next year.
