The Iron Throne (Josh Carey) defeated JB Gilpin in the semifinal 135 – 93 even though their QB, Josh Freeman, scored only 5.96 points. Dennis Pitta contributed an amazing 28 points, and of course Adrian Peterson was good for 27.2. The Bridgeburners (Tehol Beddict) advanced with a 128 – 109 upset of first place Reign Maker$ (Zorboss). Yahoo made Reign Maker$ 24 point favorites, and Tehol announced, “Looks like Beddict is finico.”  But fantasy football is not played on a computer screen. Hakeem Nicks, Doug Martin, Jamaal Charles, and Darrius Heyward-Bey scored 15 for Zorboss, instead of the 62 Yahoo projected. Meanwhile, Colin Kaepernick, Andre Johnson, Frank Gore, and the Seattle defense were piling up the points for Tehol. So now we get the final we all dreamed about.

Tehol won his first 5 games, then lost 5 straight, and now has won 5 in a row again. So obviously, he’s due for a loss (I also predicted he would lose last week, so there’s that). I think Foster and Peterson will lead The Iron Throne to the one thing Josh really wants — The Razzball Writers League title!

Forecast: THE IRON THRONE  124 THE BRIDGEBURNERS 106.

Good luck to both teams!

    Could my matchups be any worse? Wait, what am I talking about!??!? I’m Tehol Beddict, a MF n fantasy legend. I’m just gonna come out and say it: I guarantee victory. I can not be stopped. How much money do we win for this again? Bury me in a tomb made of solid gold, encrusted with blood diamonds

    Josh fell short of my prediction, finishing with 110 points as Foster and Peterson totaled just 11.4. Tehol needs 29 points from Kaepernick, Gore, and the Seattle defense to win.

      Looks like that SEA def might get a shot to do it alone

        @Sky: Yeah, looking good for Tehol.

        Congratulations on your consolation championship! I lost the 9th place game despite 30 points from Reggie Bush and 25 from the Rams.

          Hey thanks! I owe it all to my team gelling at just the not so right time. But in all seriousness, Nick Foles FTCW. It was a nice championship between Josh & Tehol, though. Great season overall, couldn’t be happier. Razzball representing!
