Fantasy Football – Week 12

2016_week12_breesSo the Seahawks place very well and defeat the Eagles and Patriots but then get manhandled by the Buccaneers?! Hey John Schneider, can we please have an offensive line? What a mess that game was. The defense was really missing Earl Thomas but held Tampa Bay scoreless in the next three quarters. The offense was a mess though and only managed 3 points the entire game. That loss also broke a pretty major streak: “Seattle’s streak is over. At no point during the fourth quarter today were they within one score of tying the game. This is what blowing out Seattle looks like.” [source] That incredible 98 game streak that was ended by the Buccaneers who are now over 0.500 for the first time since 2012.

Our league standings are officially constipated. Andy is still comfortably out front but there is a 4 way tie for 2nd place. Total season points are the tie breaker. As the monday night game ended, I was on ahead of Logan in the total season points by 0.01. Then Rodgers took a knee twice and Yahoo apparently counts that against the QB rushing yards so that dropped me to 0.19 behind Logan. Austin is close behind us in fourth and Tim is 220 points behind in fifth. He’s going to need to get into the playoffs with his record because I don’t think he can make up that point deficit with only 2 games remaining until the playoffs start.

Next week we have some big matchups that will help shape our playoff picture. Andy gets his chance to beat up on me, but then Tim and Luke play each other, possibly battling for that fourth playoff spot, and Austin and Logan play each other battling to break out of the four way tie. Dad and Jim make up the fourth game and one of them will get to put another notch in their win column.
