Fantasy Football 2011, Final Report

So the time has come to put away the fantasy shoulder-pads for another season. We’ve laughed, we’ve cried, we’ve drank beer and inhaled wings for four months, all the time watching our real-life teams make themselves comfortable in the cellar until, hopefully, next season. Well, my real-life team, anyway.

Where did my fantasy teams end up?

Yahoo Teams

RTVP League: Championship Game:  Angus’ No Stars 76, Jayusmagnus’ Legion 80. Finished 2nd in League.

League 337126: Championship Game:  Ram Air 100.72, Green Machine 68.96. Ram Air is League Champion!
League 337241:  Tazo Zen finished 3rd Place in a 10 team league.

ESPN.com:

Both teams in ESPN leagues performed miserably. They’re both playing in the consolation ladder this final week, but I couldn’t care less about the outcome of either.

Fox Sports Public League 29622Martini Time finished in 8th Place in a 10 team league.

One League Championship out of ten teams is a bit disappointing, but, hey! There’s always next year!

Fantasy Football 2011, Week 15

The season’s about over (for my Browns, the season is over; after a masterful first series led by backup QB Seneca Wallace resulted in a quick touchdown, we ended up losing to the Cardinals 20-17 in OT). Some of my fantasy teams will be watching the playoffs on fantasy TVs, while a couple are going for the gold.

Let’s see where we stand, shall we?:

Fantasy Football 2011, Week 14

Why can’t we ever generate some good headlines? We lost to the Steelers, but what were the headlines coming out of the game? That it wasn’t the rout that was expected? That our defense kept us in the game? That we showed a little spark on offense? How about the toughness Big Ben R showed after one of his linemen fell on his ankle? No. What’s still making the news is Colt’s concussion, and him playing through it. It must be that the Cleveland medical staff was uncaring in this close game, and threw the quarterback in to continue playing because the win was more important. Or that they were incompetent in their diagnosis.  Couldn’t possibly be that Colt showed no signs of injury after getting leveled by It’s-Not-My-Fault Harrison, could it? Naw.

Playoffs have started/continue in many fantasy leagues as the season winds down.

Let’s see where we stand, shall we?:

Fantasy Football 2011, Week 13

My crappy Browns lost to the Ravens Sunday. The defense kept us in it but our 29th ranked run defense couldn’t contain Ray Rice.

Speaking of playoffs, they’re drawing close in my fantasy leagues. A few of my teams have better shots at making it than the Browns. A couple, such as my ESPN teams, have no chance, but some of the others are hanging in there.

Let’s see where we stand, shall we?:

So I’m a combined 3-7  for the week for my head-to-head contests, and 63-67 for the season.

This season appears to be shot to hell.

Fantasy Football 2011, Week 12

Well, my Brownies played one of their best games of the year last Sunday. Decent offense, Hillis played strong in his return from a hamstring injury, and it appeared that we were on our way to upset the resurgent Cincinnati Bengals…until a botched snap on a field goal attempt deflated whatever air was in our balloon. The long snapper was waived, but we are no longer listed as “In The Hunt”, playoff-wise.

Blah. That didn’t turn out so well.

Fantasy Football 2011, Week 10

The headline read, “Browns Outplay Rams, But Lose”.  Need more be said? If nothing else, we always find new and unique ways to lose on our last play.

How about me? Did my fantasy teams choke as well? Let’s check my results, shall we?:

Next week should be interesting; I have Matt Shaub on a few of my teams, and no decent replacements to be found. And did I mention it’s also a Bye Week? Gah!
