Week 4 Fantasy Wrap-Up


All good things must come to an end eventually, and that was exactly what happened for me in the official POD fantasy football league in Week 4.  LA Leos, who was 0-3 coming into his game against me, absolutely destroyed my team by dropping a ridiculous amount of points.  I had my best lineup in, as my coach rating shows, but that really doesn't say much considering most of my bench was either injured or on a bye.  The loss drops me to 3-1 on the year, which makes for a four-way tie for first-place in the league.

My undefeated record in the POD overflow league also no longer exists.  I lost 118.92-107 even after having a great performance out of both Larry Johnson and LaDainian Tomlinson (and a coach rating of 90%).  Looking back, it wasn't a great move to bench Jay Cutler for Philip Rivers or Thomas Jones for Chris Perry, but my optimum score was 118.24, which still would have resulted in a loss.  Things did go much better in the SBN/AOL league as I had a coach rating of 99% and won 97.5-72.05 over Niners Nation, improving my record to 3-1 in that league as well.
