Hey, look at me, I managed to kick the ass of other dorks who have nothing better to do and too much free time! I rock!
Yeah, for whatever reason, the league owner had the fantasy playoffs be on weeks 14-16, not 15-17. And to say I won the championship game...would be a bit of an understatement. I DESTROYED them in the championship game. 156-60. League high for points all season, beating the record previously set by....me.
And really, with my team, anything other than a championship win would be dissapointment. Check this starting lineup out:
QB - Kurt Warner WRs - David Boston, Torry Holt, and Kevin Johnson RBs - Marshall Faulk and Anthony Thomas TE - Jay Riemersma(damn weak link) WR/TE - Keenan McCardell WR/RB - Priest Holmes K - Matt Stover and the Miami defense.
So, uh..anyone else have stories of fantasy football domination?
Went 13-1 in my 10 team Yahoo league but ran into Marshall Faulk last week and lost by 1 point - I made the mistake of playing Randy Moss.........with a line-up like yours though, there must not have been that many people playing in your league

Marshall killed me the final week as well, but not as bad as the horrible days by Shaun Alexander and Joe Horn did. I did win one Sportsline league though, thanks to that maniac Curtis Martin and a surprisingly solid game by Trent Green. Would have done better, but Bettis being out killed a few otherwise nice teams for me.
Oh, and for the record, I was 8-3 at the end of the regular season. Second place in the league. Only because I had one more bye week than the team that was first place..damn odd amount of teams. I outscored every other team in total points by 100+ points though. (124 more points than second most...413 more than last place. )
I'm in a points league and it is down to the wire. I'm in first by 26 points. We have extended rosters to make up for the fact that their are only six teams.
We go with 2 QB's. This week it's tough to predict what is going to happen. I have Warner starting as one of my QB's and I have decided to gamble and go with Dilfer instead of Favre. This is gonna make or break me.
I also won behind Marshall Faulk and Shawn Alexander. Favre helped out quite a bit too. Vanderjaagt was pretty helpful as well.
League all turned on a big win I had over the then #1 team when he was undefeated and had Curtis Martin with 2 and Antawan Smith with 3 TDs. Faulk got me 2 that day and Alexander got 3 against the hated Raiders and the difference was our kickers. It was all uphill from there for me and downhill for him.
Everyone else in my league is fighting for 2-4th this weekend, and I can sit back and let 'em. When I get back from Vega$, I've got some money waiting to make up for what I'll lose there.
Favre will be playing like a maniac, because he wants that Central Division title. Of course he won't get it, because no one can stop Da Bears now! *insert maniacal laughter......here* Seriously, I have to agree though with 210, play Brett.
We have the secret weapon on our side for tomorrow...it's snowing here in Chi-town. Bring the Floridians on. Seriously, this game would scare me much more if J-Ville had something to play for, or even were in our conference. (like the Giants are for the Pack) I'm thinking they aren't going to be playing full speed, the Bears are possessed right now with the idea of winning the Central and praying Michael Vick pulls out the miracle game against the Rams, and they would never want the Pack to get anything good at their expense.
Hope you didn't bet your house on these picks, Shane. Then again, I was a solid 6 out of 15 for this weekend's games, so let's just pray for a Philly win tonight to at least put me close to .500, and move on to Week 3.
