Fantasy Football – Week 16

2015_week16_kirkcousinsLast week the Seahawks looked about like they did the first time they played the Rams. The offensive line was ineffective and they couldn’t get the offense into rhythm. I wonder how much of that has to do with using random running backs off the street. I hope for the sake of the playoffs that Lynch is able to come back, but next year, Rawls is the horse I’d bet on. I haven’t read all the outcomes of the playoff picture but I think this loss means that the Seahawks will probably have a pretty tough first round opponent. From a house party perspective, it would be fun to see a Seahawks Packers rematch since there are plenty of Packer fans in our group of friends around here.

In our league, the top combatants produced some underwhelming scores but the game was pretty tight. Austin edged out Logan for first place. Congrats Austin! This is the first time we’ve ever had a repeat champion. In both years, Austin got hot at the end of the season which means he knows how to make the right roster moves to keep his team healthy and in the hunt. Kudos! beat Dad for third place. Luke beat Andy for fifth, and Tim beat Jim for seventh. I’ll do another post in a week or two with some more stats from the season.

But for now… on to the weekly awards.
