      • Ming needs a big game from Cook

        all 5 of my teams this week hit 200+ pts with an average over 220, if I win against Ming that'll be 10-0 the last 2 weeks with a 200+ average

        damn, stat correction dropped me under 200

        • The Mayfield "gamble" paid off; coupled with sitting Foles, which I would have done, too.

            Yeah, playing Foles and CJ Anderson would have made things competitive. Rivers/Keenan Allen usually excel for me even in bad matchups, but the Ravens D played great. Gurley sitting out (and announcing it late) was a gutshot. So it goes.

            Well played, sir!

        • My team was pretty good this week. Of course I planned it that way...

                • yup, i try to take players with decent matchups for weeks 15-16 and avoid QBs scheduled for cold outdoor games

                  still a great season Rabbit, SBs are nice, W-L records are good, but the most points is an honor above all others

                  • Thanks, but sadly, there are no awards for most points scored. Gurley powered my team all year, but that counts for nothing in the playoffs.

                    If I had started Foles over Rivers, it's a different outcome. But Rivers has come through for me in plenty other bad matchups, and Foles - despite the wins - had only 14 pts the week before and a total of only 1 TD in his 2 post-Wentz starts.

                    A little unlucky, but hey, that's my bad.

                    Slowwy pulled off winning from the 4-spot, and I know from experience that's a great feeling. Kudos to him!

                    • Thank you. I had to beat Berz for the last playoff spot, beat Ming who won the season and then there you were. As you pointed out, my roll started just in time.

                          • Hey one last thing in fantasy world: I've been playing the weekly free Yahoo Cup contest all season again, and actually won $10 by finishing in the top 1,000 out of the 467K entrants. 763rd, to be exact.

                                Just like regular FF, it's basically matchup driven, trying to find high value at reasonable salaries. Except RB, where I generally had a couple expensive ones for reliability. For most of the year, it was "Gurley and 2 more." Then, find value at QB, take the best cheap defense, and fill in the blanks from there.
