– Ben Martens

Fantasy Football – Week 12

Officially Logan is the only one that has secured a playoff spot, but realistically, our playoffs are set with Logan, Ben, Andy, and Tyler. Thank you to everyone for continuing to start full rosters even if you can’t hope to make the playoffs!

We had two kickers post 21 points each this week! Daniel Carlson did it for Andy and Nick Folk did it for me. The season high is 22 points by Graham Gano back in Week 2 as a free agent. Last week Evan McPherson and Jake Elliott had 20 and 19 points respectively. Maybe it’s time for your kicking position to get an upgrade?

As I looked into the playoff picture, I thought about making a tool that would let me pick winners of games for the rest of the regular season and see how that affected the playoff picture, but then I realized that someone had probably already done that. Sure enough, came to the rescue. They read the data about our league and produce an awesome set of charts including playoff odds. I wish I had found this earlier in the season but I look forward to using it more next year. As you can see, Logan is a lock for the top seed in the playoffs but seeds 2-4 are undecided.

Another interesting page on that site is the schedule comparison. I’ve written a lot about Luke’s very tough schedule this year. If anyone else had the same schedule, the best they could have done was 6-6, so don’t question whether luck plays a role in this league.

This week’s power rankings show Nick peaking at the wrong time while Logan remains on top.
