No one cares, but I’ll continue logging my fantasy football achievements.
Dragon Army has now gone from 0-4 and 10th (last) place to 8-5 and 2nd place. I pulled off 6 straight victories, then lost one despite having the second highest score in the league that week, and then won my next two. With another victory and a loss for the 1st place team, I can move into the 1st seed for the playoffs. I haven’t yet secured a playoff spot. There are four 7-6 teams behind me. I could drop out, but one of the players in the 5 and 6 slot would have to outscore me by over 60 points this week.
After losing three in a row (two brutal bye weeks in a row followed by a bad week) and dropping to 11th out of 14th, I won two in a row and secured a playoff spot. I’m the 5th seed, and the playoffs begin this week.
The fantasy gods tested my faith. On Sunday night, Jordan Reed was a surprise inactive, so I had to take a fat 0 in both leagues. Yet I prevailed on Monday night, with the Seahawks keeping down Drew Brees in one league, while Russell Wilson propelled me to victory in another. Ugh, I hate having to rely on the Seahawks.
I’m a little worried about this week since Josh Gordon may get Caleb Hanie at quarterback this week. My stud WR has been carrying me the last 2 weeks, and I’m worried this may be the end of the line.
Also, I really, really hate kickers. I picked up Shaun Suisham, who scored 0.8 points after some type of botched field goal or fake field goal. In my other league, I felt good for grabbing Justin Tucker, who scored 19 points. Unfortunately, I dropped Vinitiari for him, who scored 20 points.
