Came out of ... Saturday Afternoon Football? With a 29-6 lead, 2 players to 1 of course, but that's especially fortunate considering my opponent's player is Golden Tate and my QB is Stafford! I would've probably taken Staff and Tate canceling each other out, so this is gravy. Need a nice game from Gordon here to like my chances on Sunday. He *SHOULD* absolutely shred that garbage KC D. :pray:

This league has never had a repeat winner and the other 3 teams left have won it before. You’re the final hope!

Not a good week to get some in-game injuries.

Good luck next week.

So what do the rest of you guys do in championship week? Is there a bbq or something? I haven't had a chance to enjoy one since taking over this schamozzle of a team 8-)

Dio must have a lot going on in life, he used to be more active. Now he's in the title game. Good luck this week man!

Hopefully it'll be a good, high-scoring battle. I wish I had Wentz but at least I have Zeke back; hopefully the Cowboys feed him like never before. That game vs Seattle is like a playoff game for both teams.

I'm facing one real tough lineup decision; I really hope that isn't the difference between winning and losing. :shock:

We had our 3rd kid in 2016 so it went from busy to crazy in our house. Plus I started a small business this past year which has been great for us to earn extra money but I have very little time anymore

Trust me though. Getting to the title game is all luck and I’ve been waiting for a showdown between you and I like this for a few seasons now. It’s a true testament of building through the draft and trades and not through free agency is the best way.

Best of luck this week. I do hope it’s a high scoring game but that I score more

Well, it's not gonna be the highest scoring game of the season, but you couldn't ask for a much better setup. A 26-point lead vs the 2nd best player in fantasy.

Hopefully I can hold on but I'm not too optimistic. It seems like a lot of points but Bell's been averaging more than that the last 4 weeks, and with AB out he might rack up 10 catches alone. :pray:

Congrats on your 2nd championship. I’ll be back just as strong if not stronger next year.

#2 fantasy player is available in trade discussions.

Thanks man. Been a while. Kinda anti-climatic to be honest but it's nice to have the breaks go my way. On paper my KFFL team is much better and more complete but I didn't even make the playoffs in that league. Which is even more annoying because I would've won the title if I had, quite easily with Gurley's nuclear explosion. Kind of shows you how much luck/timing/etc matters in fantasy. Any of the top 4-5 teams in this league could've won.

You're locked and loaded for the next few years with Bell and Hunt at RB. I love my core of Wentz-Zeke-Gordon-Julio, just gotta keep putting good pieces around them. (Is Diggs a core piece? Guy gives me a headache.)

Congrats Wyndham on taking out the title, well done mate.

Thanks to MB/Dionosys for running the league again, appreciate your efforts guys.

A truly diabolical season for my team, I'll be in rebuilding mode for the next few years me thinks.
