All of your distracted day dreaming and line up research comes down to one final week. It’s the fantasy football Super Bowl. Only, there is no halftime show or Roger Goodell handing out a trophy to an earthquake of boos and hisses. The anxiety and thrill starting this Saturday afternoon are worth the 15 prior weeks of making the least amount of untimely mistakes in your league.
The first time that I won my big-money home league, the one that I obsess over, was Le’Veon Bell’s rookie year. He had a late afternoon game that day and I was in pretty decent shape through the first set of games. All that I needed was a pretty decent game from him to clinch the title. Bell ran for 124 yards (his first career 100+ yard rushing game) and a touchdown against the Packers that day and I won pretty comfortably. Each title feels great but nothing compares to the first one with the big pay day against the buddies that you talk shit with week in and week out. But, whether you play for money, a belt, a ring, a trophy or some combination, I think the jabs at your league mates and unbridled confidence at the next season’s draft is the best part. Here are my week 16 rankings. I will see you all in the comment section. Even if you don’t have a line up question, you should drop a couple lines about your favorite fantasy title that you have ever won.
