    0.47 

    That’s how many points I lost my fantasy championship by.

    This is one of those days where you think you might just skip next season. Though I’m not (yet) drunk enough to forget that I’m about as likely to do that as I am to follow through on the "I’m never drinking again, ever" phase of a hangover.

    This was a particularly miserable defeat, since at around 4:30 yesterday, I was more or less certain that I had won. After the 1pm EST games had concluded, I was down by 11 points, with Earnest Graham and the Tampa Bay defense still to go. Tampa Bay had just manhandled the Falcons the week before, so I was pretty confident that they’d do something similar to San Fran and make up the margin all on their own – and then I had Graham, the free agent pickup of the year, who would certainly rack up at least ten points even if Tampa did decide to rest him a bit.

    Then Tampa Bay lost to San Fran, while giving Graham’s backups the ball more than they gave it to him. And he did jack squat with the carries he did get.

    Then I lost by 0.47.

    The beer, if you’re wondering, is delicious tonight. Merry fucking Christmas.

      My condolences. I lost my championship by 30 points with Addai hurt and Welker and Branch both putting up nothing. Makes you doubt your skills with these uncharacteristic performances.

      Til next year…I tip my beer to you, sir.

      Unfortunately, Graham being rested before the end of the 2nd quarter cost me too. Gruden rested him way too early, and it cost me. Oh well…that’s FF I guess.

      Do you think you’d be hurt more by your FF player being rested like in Graham’s case or have him take a knee at the 1 yard like like westbrook did in the eagles/cowboys game 2 weeks ago?

    Sunday Wrap-up: Patriots, Moss and Brady inch closer to the records 

    With their victory over the Dolphins yesterday, the Patriots are now one win from reaching that undefeated mark. One game!!! Tom Brady is two touchdowns from breaking Peyton Manning’s single season record of 49, while Randy Moss is two scores from breaking Jerry Rice’s single season record of 22 grabs. If all of these records are broken in that last game, that will be pretty badass, I must say.

    But let’s get to the real stuff here…fantasy football league championships. Did you win? While there’s still one game left this week, with pretty big fantasy football implications, you probably have a pretty good idea where you stand right now. For example, in one of my league’s I need Brandon Marshall to outscore Antonio Gates by about 40 points, so that’s probably NOT going to happen, but I can always hope! Anyways, congratulations if you’re poised to be taking home the trophy this season. We can only hope that some advice from this site helped you get there. Let’s give a final recap of the key player performances that may have helped you get there…or may have prevented you from achieving greatness…

    Quarterbacks

    Kurt Warner (ARI): 361 passing yards, 3 TD
    Father time just keeps getting it done

    Peyton Manning (IND): 311 passing yards, 3 TD
    Maybe he could donate some of his touchdown passes to his brother

    (More …)
