Fantasy Football – Week 17

Our 2021 fantasy season is over! Logan beat Tyler in the championship game to bring home first place. It might take a little while for the Tyler’s pain to wear off as he left a WR with 50 points on his bench. Ouch! And in a last minute comeback on Monday night, Andy beat me for 3rd place. Here are the final standings:

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

I don’t care much about getting fourth instead of third, but I did come across an interesting story about the last minute score from Najee Harris (Andy’s running back.) Read here if you’re interested but that play decided a lot of fantasy championships!

Here are a few end of the season stats for you:

  • Logan’s 1933.33 regular season points comes in 3rd on the list all time behind himself in 2018 (2024.38) and me in 2015 (1955.86).
  • Luke’s opponents scored an average of 129.37 regular season points which sets a new league record.
  • Andy won when it counted and finished in 3rd place despite having the lowest season point total (only 84% of what Logan scored in first place.)
  • Logan now has 4 first place finishes in our league.
  • We all know the draft day projections are bogus, but this year’s projections correctly named the top four teams.
  • Tyler has finished 2nd in the league in both of his seasons.
  • Logan had the most points this season from drafted players (1876.65) and I had the least (1331.62)
  • I had the most points from this season post-draft acquisitions (689.65) and Andy had the least (101.37).

Thank you everyone for playing this year! I appreciated all those full rosters and nobody pulling an Antonio Brown. I hope you’ll all come back next year, but as always, if you want out, please let me know sooner rather than later so I can find a replacement.
