You are the man. I will have a story to tell like yours now. I saw a lot of things. Two things I don't see were Tampa being shut out and Ballard being over 100 yards. I'm still in the game but barely. Would be celebrating before four if I wasn't so damn smart.

Looked his by 15 points and I am getting killed.

My main money league two of use are tied record wise but I have him by 200 points. We don't use playoffs and play all 17 weeks. He is going to win this week and I should win. I have Brady and Akers and my opponent has Ridley and Gostkowski. I have a 17 point lead. PPR with a few bonuses. The best part is we play each other next week basically for the title. If I win I win it for sure with my 200 point lead as the tie breaker even if I were to lose week 17. If he wins I would have to get lucky and win week 17 and have him lose week 17 for me to catch him. SO really one game takes all week 16 just like the playoff leagues. As long as I win tonight. Ridley better get shut down by the 49ers r defense and no gimmie short BS td's for him when brady wr's fall on the goal line.

We only use week 17 since it is just a regular season game no different in the standing s than week 1. Does suck when many guys sit or only play a few series though. But gives us another week of fun to play fantasy so it is worth it.

Brady 445 and 2 td's of course I won....The other guy does have a chance to lose is K. Wright can get 15 points tomorrow. Then all I would have to do is win one of the nest two games to win the title. In a bunch of free leagues on yahoo for work and this forum that I am in the title game and a few games I lost today even though the two I lost I was the best scorer by far.

Congrats to all who won this week and made it to the SB. I'm hoping to get there tomorrow night. Im down 8.5 but I still have the jets D. If I listened to Matthew berry, I would've started the rams, resulting in elimination!

I hope so, we award 1 pt for every 25 return yards. 1 pt per sack, 2 pts per pick and 6 pts for any defensive td.

Guess I will post all my leagues and where I stand.

3 main money leagues:

1- Most likely tied with another team that I play next week in a non playoff league. Winner should take 1st place even though if I lost I could still win it the 17th week wit ha win and his loss since I have 250 point lead after this week. He still could lose tomorrow night if K. Wright scores 15 points. Then I only need to win one of last two games.

2- Same format as above( I don't use playoffs in money leagues I run). Will have a one game lead heading into the final two weeks. 1st in points scored but only by 40-50 points over team one game behind me.

3- Lost today in semi final after having a bye week last week as the # 2 seed.

Free leagues for fun: 5 of them.

1- Lost last week as the 3rd seed and # 1 regular season scorer. To the 6th seed hundreds of points worse than me. YUCK

2- # 1 seed in the league from this forum(Only a few guys left from here I think). Won today and will be in title game next week.

3- # 2 seed and won today and will play # 1 seed next week in title game.

4- # 1 seed lost today to 4th seed.

5- Non playoff league and won today and the 3rd place team beat the 2nd place team to give me a 2 game lead with two games to go. We have one dead team with inactives all over his team and I play hi the last week so I basically won the league today with my win and the 2nd place team that was one game back before today losing. Even if I lose next week I will beat the inactive team the final week for the title.

No points for yards or points allowed?

I have grown to detest Team D's. Got so used the the sandbox defensive player and it is how I set my league up. In the two money league I am paying for the title in the bigger one and 3rd in the other. We do use playoffs and I lost the 2nd league despite putting up the 2nd most points this week. It is a really long story as to how I got seeded against the team withe the 2nd most points in week one. I did though. I had him ny 3 points. He now has be by the 11 he is ahead and C Johnson tonight. In the league where I pulled the brilliant Manning switch I won. It is the bigger of the two. So to the title game. Against the Rodgers, Cobb, Jones owner. He has so many favorable opponents. As long s I have AP I am alive. Flex will really be nuts in there this week but if Stewart is still out I go with D Williams I think, Ballard is tempting also. He has a weak opponent, forget who now, and just got 100 against Houston. All in all pretty good year. In my league I had the 3rd most points but was eliminated early with a lot of bad match ups. I hate week 17. It is a deal breaker for me. That is in playoffs. Other formats possibly. I can not go through 16 games and the lose because me guys are getting rested while his have to win.

No league should use week 17 if you use playoffs. But with no playoffs it is no more important than week 1.

Manning switch? You were playing Freeman right?

Blue we both said earlier in the week to ride the people who got you there so hopefully he used Manning over Freeman!!!!

In a few leagues that I could not get DET defense I took Tenn and they paid off tonight. I did not need them in any league but they atleast did well. Sanchez sucks.

Sup fellas! So I won my semi rd game by 0.4, barring point adjustment, I'm super bowl bound. Does anyone think there could be a point adjustment for the Jets D? I'm in an espn league...

Posted By: LABLUE
Date Posted: 17 Dec 2012 at 9:29pm
That is close. There are many point adjustments on defense in leagues. Hopefully it stays for you. You can go check the jets stats and then look at your rules to add it up yourself.

Thanks man! This is nuts, my opponent's team is insane, rice , ,martin and tynes burned him bad. I got burned on that frank gore fumble recovery td, so I hope I can get this one. Back to the broncos next week.

Yes Lablue I survived my brilliant Manning to Freeman switch. I was being sarcastic lol. Thankfully the rest of the team delivered.

What happened on the Gore play? The QB fumbled,Gore picked it up,and ran it in right? I really don't know. Saw a mention of it in the value meter. I was working. I usually do go with what got me there but I will do the same thing again if the numbers say to. The numbers usually pan out. Yes Manning is a stud. No Freeman is not. Manning results where exactly what I thought they would be. No one can tell me they believed Freeman would deliver less than that can they? With a straight face? Manning had a 12. 204/1. I said earlier I learned my lesson but it has worked to many other times. This week I don't think I have a controversy anywhere, For the $500 Manning will be starting. Peterson/Martin. Austin/Maclin/Green Te Gresham or Pitta? Gresham has started every game for me since Rudolph's first zero. Pretty sure here I will use the what got me there thinking. Tempting though. At Flex I have a ton of options but with the way D  Williams played I am thinking I shouldnt think about it. Everyone said no last week,and I agreed, but that was a solid game. Option include McCoy,if he plays, Ballard,facing KC.,Owens(not in the equation), and maybe Wells. I waived him so I probably won't get him back but I wouldn't play him anyway. Dont think I have ever seen worse numbers from a back over 3 games who scored 5 Td's. Nelson ove Maclin is the only one I will struggle with. I know your opinion of Nelson Lablue but Maclin is ,as rotowire free info to Yahoo says, a risky WR3 right now. The upside on Nelson is huge. He has had a couple sweet weeks in between all the injuries. Look at Jones last week. I bet my opponent still doesnt start him. Not over Cobb/D Thomas/Dez. he had 3 or 4 weeks of nothing before he got three Td's. I know Lablue likes him. He is an average receiver in my book with the best QB in the NFL. Well above average but one of those who shows up every few weeks. True Jennings still hasn't done crap. Not sure at this point what I would do if I had him. Glad he wasn't my problem this year. I think maybe I am to quick to believe a player who says he is 100%. I guess since Green Bay is unlikely to resign him we will see what he is made of. Part of why I believed he was a strong play. You can't come back and look like he has going into free agency. I have read Green Bay is keeping him out of the offense to lower his value. That's baloney. Good problem to have with all their WR. I think Rodgers is doing what Peyton did to a lot of WR. Made them a whole lot better than they ever would have been. If I had Jennings I would start him over Maclin. So good thing I don't. Now Nelson......

I think Jennings has always been the WR Rodgers made look good. Very avg and will be avg or below avg when he is on a team with a bad Qb next year. I think Cobb and Jones are GREAT wr's. Way more talented than Jennings or Nelson ever could be. Why they will let Jennings go. Cobb and Jones will be very high on my lists next year if Jennings is gone. I think Nelson had a fluke last season and has not had the same type this year. But I still like him over Maclin as a wr since he is on GB. The scary thing is his health. For me he is going to be too risky to start after not playing last week. Rotoworld said he was not even close to suiting up. So for that reason I like Maclin at this point. Maybe if Nelson practices a few days and looks good I might change my mind.

With B. Brown sucking the past two weeks it is a easy call for Philly to start McCoy this week since he got cleared. I already benched Brown for B. Lloyd as my final flex spot in my main league. I wan't no part of the Philly backfield with both of them there taking from each other in the title games of fantasy. Plus the way A. Reid has used Brown the past two weeks is horrible. Play calling change the past two week if McCoy was the RB? Not so sure. 1st and goal from 1 and 3 passes by a rookie qb. 1st and goal on 3 and 3 passes. Brown looked great punching in td's the those other two games. Reid is just a fired coach blowing it right now.

According to Eagles coach Andy Reid, LeSean McCoy (concussion) "won't be (in for) a normal workload like you'd see during the season" in Sunday's return.
Reid said he's "going to keep a close eye" on his No. 1 back.

Jordy Nelson (hamstring) failed to return to Packers practice Wednesday.
It's looking like Nelson is going to miss his third straight game in Week 16. It's possible he won't return before the postseason. If you're in a dire roster crunch for the fantasy finals, dropping your former WR1 could be a calculated risk worth taking.
