i put up my highest point total of the year this week with what was one of my worst lineups ive ever put together. had bortles/ware/ingram/maclin/baldwin/m. thomas all on bye this week. my starting RBs were artis-payne and darren sproles. i had to start both gronk and bennett because i didnt have another flex option. amazingly, that worked out and now im actually considering starting both of them going forward. this is without a doubt the worst 4-1 team in fantasy history.

Well the good news is that I might actually win this week (but by no means a lock, I could have an epic rant here tomorrow), because I have to gripe, I will point out that I am projected after Monday's games to have the 2nd highest point total in the league while my opponent will have the 3rd highest. I cannot seem to escape playing the team having a hot week.

Decided last minute today to move Terrance West to the bench so he turns around and puts up 23 points

I replaced him with Spencer Ware who got 22

I'm currently up by 51, and we each have only 1 guy left to go

Need 2 of:
LaGarrette Blount
Jordan Howard
Isaiah Crowell
Jay Ajayi

Potentially three, depending on how much you like the third option over one of Marvin Jones, Edelman, and Emmanuel Sanders.

I started out 0-4 despite being like 10 points off the pace for most points scored in the league (see endless bitching on page 1). Since then I've gone 5-1 and am somehow 1 game out of 1st place in the league and still second in the league in points (although now trailing the first team by about 150 points

My RB trio is now Elliott, Gordon and Gurley/Kelley (man can't believe how bad Gurley is). My WR foursome is basically Allen Robinson and 3 waiver wire quality guys each week but somehow I always seem to get at least 2 passable performances out of the group (this week it was Jamison Crowder, Ty Montgomery and Dontrelle Inman). Anyway its turned out to be a relatively fun season and I seem fairly likely to make the playoffs.

Thanksgiving was very generous today for teams like mine. Kirk Cousins, Jordan Reed, and Antonio Brown? Yes please.

I won 15k on a 9 dollar entry on Draftkings about a month ago. Decided now was the time to brag about it.

So I'm in 2 fantasy leagues this year:

League one I am 2nd in the league in points but am 5-7
League two I am leading the league in points but am 6-6

Luckily somehow in both leagues I am in position for the playoffs. In the first league I am tied for the last playoff spot (8 of 12 teams get in) but am scheduled to play the team I'm tied with in a defacto playin game. In the other league, I am tied with 2 other teams for the last 2 playoff spots but there are 2 weeks to go there.

Well here we go....i finished 3rd in my league in points (5 points short of 2nd in league) in one league where 8/12 teams make the playoffs and finished 9th.

In my other league I finished 1st in the league in points, lost 6 in a row to finish 6-8 and out of the playoffs. This is the worst freaking season ever.

Here is the standings for the 1st league. Look at all the teams around me with regards to points scored. No one close to me. I started out 0-4 with several inexplicable losses, then won 5 of 6, then lost 3 in a row. The worst part is that I traded my 1st round pick next year for Melvin Gordon (6th round keeper) when I was 5-5, gearing up for a playoff run (I was virtually 2 games up on a playoff spot at that point because of my tiebreaking lead in points) and then lost 3 straight to not even make the playoffs.
