Fantasy Football – Week 14

The Jaguars are good? Well this is certainly weird. It was also weird to see our QB throw three interceptions in one game. Honestly it’s amazing he doesn’t throw more with all the crazy scrambling throws that he makes. The most disappointing part of the game was the last 45 seconds when the Seahawks, led by Michael Bennett, showed their lack of anything resembling sportsmanship. Can we please trade away Bennett? I’m done with him. I’m also feeling like it’s time for Blair Walsh to go. He’s 7 of his last 13 attempts. Is this one of those things that’s just stuck in his head? The kicks only get more intense from here on out. Can he handle it?

In our league, Luke beat out Austin in a battle for top seed in the playoffs. Logan also won so he ends up in the second seed as Austin falls to third. Logan lost Carson Wentz to an injury though. With no QB on his bench, who will he pick up for the playoffs? And the final spot in the playoffs goes to… me! The implausible scenario that I mentioned two weeks ago played out. Dad lost both games and I won both games with just enough points to get the tiebreaker. I’m predicting coal in my stocking.

So we’ll kick off the playoffs with Luke vs me and Logan vs Austin. The consolation bracket will be Dad vs Jim and Andy vs Tim.

At the end of the season, I’m going to be sending around an email asking who wants to be in the league next year. I got the impression at the start of this season that a few of you weren’t too keen on playing but kind of went with it since Yahoo auto-added you. I really appreciate everyone sticking with it, but I also don’t want you to feel trapped in this forever. It would be a blast to have everyone back, but if you want out, it’s fine. I’d just like to have the offseason to figure out if we need to find some new players, etc. So there’s nothing to do at this point, but please think about it over the next couple weeks.
