Jaywrong (Suck My Left TD), Sky, and I all lost to open the door for JB to grab the final playoff spot, and he closed it and then kicked it down, trouncing Team Krump 138-94. Zorboss (Reign Maker$) and Josh (The Iron Throne) advance directly to the semi-finals as the top 2 teams.

In this league, no one can cry about the vagaries of head-to-head action as the six highest-scoring teams made the playoffs.

QUARTER-FINALS

JB Gilpin (6-7) vs Smokin’ a Bowe (8-5) Mark averaged about 4 more points per week than JB, but JB has outscored him in 2 of the last 3 weeks.

Matt Ryan is coming off a disappointing 10.4-point week, but Smokin’ a Bowe did have 2 of the top 7 RBs last week in Forte and Green-Ellis. Myers had a career day at tight end for JB, putting up 26 fantasy points. Hanson was the top kicker with 18 points. Brandon Marshall was the #6 WR, but Roddy White managed only 2.5 points. Forecast: JB 111 Smokin’ 107.

The winner will face The Iron Throne in the semis.

The Bridgeburners (8-5) vs He Hate Me (8-5) Tehol Beddict had a strong finish after losing 5 in a row in the middle of the season, while He Hate Me scored over 140 points in each of the last two weeks, so this should be a barnburner.

Gordon and Garcon each scored 20.6 points last week while Bennett added 16.7. Have to expect a dropoff for all three of them. Meanwhile, Newton, Brown, and Bryant accounted for 84 of He Hate Me’s 142-point total. It was the second straight game the three put up exceptional numbers (95.44 in Week 12) and surely can’t do it 3 games in a row. Forecast: Bridgeburners 117 He Hate Me 112.

The winner will face Reign Maker$ in the semis.

    I’m blaming my homerism for the lost season.

    It was nice for Zorboss and I to have all this extra time to write Bet the Farm this week while not having to worry about our lineups for this league.

      @Josh Carey: Ha! I know what you mean. I earned a bye too for finishing 8th.
