Ouch.That sucks. I'm also facing Cooper in my playoffs but i got so damn lucky he left him on the bench in favor of Cooks. Cooper's gamewinner was all luck too.

My luck ran out. Typical Patriots, randomly decided to not use James White at all in the game. I would have lost anyway, but I can't stand owning any Patriots players, especially RBs. Rest of the team did fine, little dip from Antonio Brown, but the guy I played had a few players with big games and I didn't have a chance anyway. Now I have to play for the 3rd place title and my money back.

My girlfriend ended up winning The Sacko, so that's been fun giving her shit for that.

My work league is a 14 team 1 point PPR league

I went 13-0

8 teams make the playoffs, so no bye week for 1st and 2nd in standings

If Stefan Diggs doesn't score 27 points tonight I will be ousted in round 1 to the 8th seed thanks to Amari Coopers 54 points and Smith-Schusters 32

Heartbreaking

Ugh... Conflicted between Justin Jackson and Josh Gordon as my flex. I have Chubb and Cook as my starting RBs now and Jackson and Damien Williams on my bench currently. I don't trust Williams with West lurking and Rivers loves throwing to his RBs. Gordon however is the safer choice so it's tough.

Welp, hope you went against everything you said and went with Jackson and Williams. 

Jackson had a nice game for me. Mahomes did alright for me. Unfortunately the guy I played had Rivers and he got him like 9 points there in that final drive. But, I went from a projected 18 point loss to a projected 6 point loss, so I made up ground.

I had dropped Damien Williams last week when the Chiefs signed West, so that sucks to see him on another team in the championship game, while I am fighting for 3rd place.

I did play Jackson but I benched Williams. Ugh... luckily Rivers and Jackson were alright for me and Tyreek Hill took a shit for my opponent. Good start so far.

I had the exact same setup as you. Glad those last 6 minutes of the game turned Rivers/Jackson nights into pretty solid. I felt awful seeing Williams get so much usage and racking up pts on my bench but there was no way I was trusting him right off the bat but he does look solid, wouldn't doubt him and Ware start splitting the backfield 50/50 moving forward which sucks for his FF owners.

I couldn't trust Williams either, I was thinking about starting him over Brieda/Wilson, Samuels, or AP, but I kept him on the bench unfortunately.  I felt like the Chiefs can be weird about their rotations sometimes, oh well.  

I feel like I'm about to get hit with a FF bad beat.  My team is on a 7 game winning streak ending in 1st place, scored my highest total yet on the bye last week, it's the perfect setup to get upset in the semis this weekend.  Kelce only getting 6.1 isnt the best start.

Yea can't really feel bad about that one since no one really knew his usage and how he plays in the system due to small sample size. You'll be fine with Samuels i believe, he got most of the work last week and Pats suck against pass catching backs. That said I'm also starting him so fingers crossed lol

It's funny how everyone kept saying Kelce has been shut down against the Chargers the past few games and Rivers historically struggles against the Chiefs especially at Arrowhead and that's how it went down. Divisional games,especially on Thursdays, always ends up screwing people in FF. Hope you overcome Kelce's crappy line

I can't be the only one with a bad beat after that weird-ass fantasy week.

I won the league in regular season points by 250, it was a juggernaut, and 15 less points than my worst showing of the year and lost!

I'm not sure I'll ever put together a team as consistently good as this years again. Quite the gut punch.

I lost daily fantasy money by 10 points. Got 0 from Anthony Miller. He was cheap and worth the risk this week IMO.

Unless Kamara gets 65 points tonight I'm on the verge of pulling off the upset and going to the finals! (hopefully to repeat)

I just lost by .09 in my semis.  Fun times.

Wowwww.

 

I lost our 3rd place game tonight. Second year in a row losing the 3rd place game. Lost by 5 points because quality TE's don't exist this year past 3 or 4 names.

Good call with Samuels, he was huge without a TD. He alone outscored my opponents Barkley,  Thomas, Lamar Miller combo so it ended up an easy win. 8 in a row!

Nice, you might take the ship on a winning streak. Yea overall it was a terrible week for the regular stud fantasy performers but Samuels came up clutch with his solid matchup. I'm in my FF championship due to Barkley and Kamara being mortal so no complaints here lol.

Just won my semifinal game due to a tiebreaker.  We don't do decimals in our league so we both ended with 105 points and our tiebreaker that the league voted on a few years ago was RB points.  Thank you Aaron Jones!

It’s one of my best friends and probably like the only person I know that wouldn’t completely flip out over it ha.  To make it even more ridiculous we’re in an IDP league and the stat correction was a tackle ASSIST for one of my guys lol.  Can’t make this shit up.
