Fantasy Football – Week 13

I fully admit that I didn’t think the Seahawks would stand a chance against the red hot Eagles. With their decimated defense and lack of an offensive line, I expected a blowout. Boy was I pleasantly surprised? Well I was surprised when it was over… for the entire game I kept trying to figure out how they were going to end up losing. But this was a really solid game. The Seahawks are great in December so who knows. Maybe they’ll hold on to a wild card spot?

Our league was a surprise as well with three of the top four teams losing. Tim beat Luke in a brother v. brother battle and Jim toppled Dad. Jim’s win was actually key for the playoff picture. Austin, Luke and Logan are already locked in, but Dad needed to win to guarantee a playoff spot. Now it gets interesting as Dad faces off against Logan. Here’s how the fourth spot can play out:

  • Dad wins. He’s into the playoffs.
  • Dad loses and I win. If I score 8 more points than Dad, I win the tiebreaker and I’m in the playoffs. Otherwise Dad is in.
    • Technically the same is true if Dad loses and Andy wins by he’d need ~80 more points than Dad and that seems unlikely.

Whether you’re in the playoffs already or have been eliminated, please keep those rosters full so that we can have a fair fight. It’s down to the wire!
