Matrix Basic League Playoffs

Don't know what is going on in the other leagues for the experts

1st and 3rd seeded teams were eliminated in the first and second round. Atomic punks were 10-3 with the highest Points For and a fantastic 6 game run at the end of the season, but they did not bring their "A-game" in the playoffs and fell to an expansion team. DanesGoneWild is the Cinderella team*, plucked out of obscurity with a 6-7 record in a wild card spot, they now are almost certain to make the finals.



*They have been labeled such not because of any fan enthusiasm but because they dress in girly glass slippers...and it is not a pretty sight I can tell you.

i was gonna bump up this thread, glad you did.

cosmo went 5-8. "no giddy up !" here. this is only my second season playing fantasy after just getting renewed interest in the NFL. i see my fate was sealed when i looked at the draft results posted earlier on the thread.

my first pick l fitzgerald topped 10 pts 4 times
3rd pick h nicks only 2 twice

not enough production from them.

cobb was a nice get but those return yards dont add up in this format.
looking forward to next year and best regards to the finalist

No doubt the draft was important. The default settings were all about running backs. I bumped Brady to 1 and Brees to 2nd pick. I think I ended up in 5th spot and got Brees.

Brees produced 348 pts so far and Adrian Peterson 309. I had to cycle through receivers and 2nd running backs due to injuries.


Brees was league leader in yardage and Peterson was league leader in yardage an RB TD's. Hard to go wrong.

And the Danes goes wild........

Well, in lieu of stat corrects and it wont take much. For example if James Jones gets 1 yard less he losses 3.1 points and the scales tip.
It seems that an most improbable win toke place last night. The DaneGoneWild beating out the Mandrake's Maulers with around just 1 point.
Tom Magnificent and Aaron Henandez disappointed with season low or near season low scores but as we all know defences win championships and the Cards defence did what the Houston defence coudlnt.

As a first time fantasy player and a non US citizen and we all know they know nada about football, i had just 1 goal before the season. Beating Marc aka Mandrake's Maulers and i would be happy. Seems i did it both times we meet this season.
Taking the leauge title certainly wasnt on the plate. Now i dont know if i should be sad, Steelers getting eliminated from the PO possibilties last night or being happy for apparently winning the basic leauge title in my first year. If this stand it certainly remenisant of the 2 Giants run for championships lately. Leading the leauge after 5 games, dropping nearly every game after that. but just squeshing in to the play off and beating the Patriots/Mandrake's Maulers in the final.

Merry Xmas all,

Rasmus

Well the Cards return of a blocked FG for a TD late was the difference in a nail biter for the Basic league championship! 91.68 to 90.84 margin means any stat correction in the Maulers favor could switch the tide, so we will have to wait to officially award the prize.

The 3rd place game between my Pack o'Pain and Atomic punks was a similar back and forth affair with Brandon Marshall's TD putting me on top to take third, though with a 141.72 to 138.66 lead, I could succumb to stat corrections as well.

But hey A Punks, it just goes to show ya that either of us woulda killed either of the top two teams this week ;P

Woulda coulda shoulda ...

In the Pro league there was a fairly close matchup as well with Breezely Bruins coming back against Zeke's Minions 699.95 to 681.25, Green Giants had the high score of the day with 700.12 now THAT woulda been a final...0.17 pts more than the Bruins! Of note for the Yahoo points predictors - Doug Martin for the Bruins was tapped to get 51.29 and got...exactly 51.29.

Congrats to the Bruins on the win

In the somewhat abortive Hall of Fame league (only 6 players this year) My Pack o'Pain put up a moster 328.59 points, taken Kelly's Zero's 189.92 by a large margin. There was quit a logjam behind me with HOF TGW at 286.49, Poundcake at 285.11 and Northern Horde at 284.60.

Just to be on the safe side, I announce the official winners next week (latest stat correction for this week can be applied is a players game time the following week).

Start oiling up those gloves and pine tarring those bats...
