Hats off, Shieky. 193.94 in the playoffs...nicely done. If I had lost because my team was crap, then I might be upset, but when you face off against someone who is essentially a TD away from 200 pts., you just gotta show respect.
Every one of your regular starters was comfortably in double digits (your average non-IDP players score was over 19 points), and you had 7 guys who outscored my best guy. That's all around impressive!
I'll have to console myself that I made it to the championship in my jellybean league on the back of Jamaal Charles' 51.5 points, which I certainly needed after getting 2.1 from Shane Vereen, 2.4 from Dwayne Bowe, 2.5 from Jimmy Graham, 2.6 from Andre Brown, and 4.2 from Eric Decker...I thought I was dead in the water until Charles went nuts during that late afternoon slate (never thought a RB could pull off a game like that despite only getting 8 carries for 20 yards in the game!). Although getting 23 points from the Ravens kicker last night gave me even more of a cushion...he was one cross-pollination player that I overlooked when posting last week. My initial investment of 100 jellybeans has now improved to 250 jellybeans, with one more matchup with 400 jellybeans on the line! Woo hoo!

Thanks Ruthless. My team finally stepped up, i had to be in the middle of the pack when it comes to average weekly score. The guys came together at the right time! One more to go! DoodieBalls has good wide receivers, but he's gotta be the only person in America with Ryan Tannehill as a quarterback on a championship game team.
Fortunately for me in one of my jelly bean leagues (at work), I made a deal to split the championship winnings prior to the week starting. I typically am against that...but the guy that set the league up made it $300 for first and $50 for second (after a $50 entry fee). Me and the other guy in the final thought it prudent to simply split it. Worked out for me as I got smoked by jamal charles.

The Tannehill one is interesting, but I may have one better. I have Russell Wilson as my QB, and he is facing a tough Cardinal defense (although they are the top ranked rush defense in the NFL, they are only a middle of the road pass defense and recently lost the Honey Badger to injury). My backup is Kirk Cousins, who facing the PATHETIC Dallas pass defense. I am actually giving legit consideration to starting Cousins in the championship...the Dallas pass defense is just THAT BAD (ask Matt Flynn).

Well I don't blame you. Cousins has that "late in the season Fantasy Stud out of nowhere" potential, as evidenced by a performance last year and then last week. Plus, Dallas defense is terrible. I never bench my studs, but that one would make me think for a bit. Tough call.

Holy flippin jamcakes on a bobcat I'm in the championship game! WOOOO!!!
I would like to give my respects to Steeler Fan in T.O. as he was my opponent this past week. While it wasn't close close it was definitely a more entertaining match up than Mr. 190 points Sheik/Ruthless here.
I somehow stuck with RGIII all year, even though he's been pretty sucky, and when I heard he was benched I picked up Tannehill. Not sure if I'll stay with him or not (vs Buffalo). My WRs, my stable of Raiders RBs (lol), and some lucky pick ups have somehow kept me afloat. Regardless, I'm looking forward to our match up. Just don't drop another 190 pointer this week.

Just like the Steelers...there's still a chance! I'm down 100.73 to 106.46 and I still have Vernon Davis and Navorro Bowman. Getting -1 each from my K (Tucker) and Def (KC) was not very helpful...they've been solid all year. Its not over, but the odds are in my favor based on the projections (Davis +8, Bowman +6).
Good matchup so far!

I would like to announce that in the Jooser Mt. Mama League, myself and Wicked Pixies are battling it out in the championship game.
As it stands right now, the score is The Crazies (me) 167.52 to WP's 85.10. I'm out of players, but WP has 2 players remaining in C. Kaepernick and F. Gore. He only needs 85.42 points combined from the 2 to overtake me.
Good Luck WP!

Well, congrats to Iron Shiek! What a strange ending. Vernon Davis got no points...but Navarro Bowman returns an INT for 92 yards and gets 17 points? An LB got ya 17 to win it? Crazy crazy crazy. Good game man, and congrats!
