Fantasy Football – Week 15

The post is a little bit late this week because everyone in the NFL has COVID! (And apparently it has spread up north too.) The oddity of watching a Tuesday afternoon football game apparently threw our league into another dimension because remember how last week I was wondering how anyone would beat Logan and Tyler in the playoffs? If you add their scores together this week, they would only beat last place Chelsea by 1.91 points! They both bombed hard. Will they recover next week for the playoffs?

Speaking of which, I screwed up when I set the fantasy schedule this year. Normally we do our playoffs on Week 15 and 16 so that if playoff teams are resting their players in Week 17, it doesn’t affect us. Oops. I guess that’s just part of the league this year. Next year we’ll go back to the 15/16 playoffs.

Also of note, Logan’s loss also means that the 8 game winning streak is still the high bar for this league.

So with that, our playoff bracket is set. Here are the seeds:

  1. Logan
  2. Ben
  3. Tyler
  4. Andy
  5. Nick
  6. Luke
  7. Tim
  8. Chelsea

Despite almost setting the record for the lowest score of the season, Logan has enough momentum to stay in the top power ranking spot.

  1. Logan
  2. Ben ▲5
  3. Tyler ▼1
  4. Chelsea ▲1
