Well, it's been a great year for me in fantasy football. I had 9 of 12 teams make the playoffs. That is a record for me, breaking the old one of 8 teams a few years ago.
Congratulations to New Mexico Scorpions and Piketon Red Streaks for winning their league championships.
New Mexico dominated their league all season long, winning their first 8 games before hitting a 3 game losing streak and finishing the season on a two game winning streak heading into the playoffs where they continued to dominate. They finished first in the regular season with a league best, 10 wins and 3 losses, and they won the championship.
Piketon struggled early on, at 2-3 after five games before getting on a roll and winning 6 of their last 8 regular season games. They finished 4th in the regular season with a record of 8 wins, 4 losses, and 1 tie. But top four teams play in playoffs and from there, we were able to keep on our roll facing a 10-3 team and getting to the league championship game and beating a tough 11-2 team. The odds were against them all the way, having been projected to lose both games. Piketon defeated the odds and came out on top.
Two other teams made their championship game in their respective league, Roswell Aliens, and Columbus Bandits. Both teams made it to their championship games only to come up short. The other five playoff teams lost in the first round of the playoffs, but did so gracefully.
For my other three teams that missed the playoffs, Ohio Wildcats finished 7-7 while ending the season on a 5 game winning streak, knocking out two potential playoff teams the last two games of the season. Way to go Ohio! One of the owners messaged me too, and bitched me out for it. For some reason, he thought I shouldn't still be "playing" my team since I was eliminated from post season early. To him I said, "Better luck next time, champ. I play every game despite my record. I finish what I start."
Ohio finished 6th out of 10 teams. Meanwhile, Waverly Thrashers and Chillicothe Paints were the only two teams this year with a losing record. (Another record for me) Waverly ended up 7th in their 12 team league with a 6-8 record, and Chillicothe ended up with a 3-11 record, losing six of those games by 7 points or less. Prior to the season, Chillicothe ranked 2nd in their draft grade. A great team with potential that simply fell short, and many coaching errors on my part.
Here is the final tally of my season:
4 champisonship games
2 league championships
Only six more months before 2014 draft.
Can hardly wait. LOL
