Fantasy Football 2019 – Week 16

It was a rough week for Seahawks fans. Injuries to both Carson and Procise feel like they have ended the season. We’ll see what Lynch can do coming in to a very important game off of his couch. It’s a hail mary for the season. If it doesn’t work, then I’ll be happy we had a good season and that we made the playoffs.

In our league, congratulations are in order for Tim! After scoring he most points in our league but only barely making he playoffs, he secured first place with a dominating victory. He finished dead last last year and whipped us all this year.

The final standings are:

1. Tim
2. Tyler
3. Logan
4. Luke
5. Nick
6. Ben
7. Andy
8. Dad

Fantasy Football 2019 – Week 15

Seahawks! Their first three drives were fun to watch this week! Things settled down after that, but I liked seeing them airing the ball out some more. There were fantastic catches from Lockett, Metcalf and Brown along with great runs from Carson. Brown put a sour note on the game by being suspended indefinitely on Monday (for the fifth time.) I’d say his career is probably over, but it sounds like the Seahawks don’t really lose any money on the deal and many of his 7 catches this season were in big situations so it’s probably an overall win for the organization.

Normally I’d jump into our league at this point, but I have to mention the 49ers game. Both the 49ers and the Seahawks are in a position where they either win the division and get home field advantage or they have to fight their way up from the wild card. With the Seahawks losing last week, the 49ers had the upper hand but then they lost in epic fashion to the Falcons! Going into this week, their only two losses had come on the last play of the games. This one almost ended the same way except there was 2 seconds left. If you missed that game, be sure to watch the 6 minute recap to see the Falcons come back from 9 points down in the last 5 minutes. Last week the 49ers were ~60% favorites to win the division but this change bumps the Seahawks up to a 54% chance. Both teams are locked into the playoffs either way though.

There was plenty of drama in our league too. The underdogs won every matchup except the game between Dad and me. Time took down #1 seed Logan and Tyler beat Luke. So we get Tyler vs. Tim in the Super B.. championship. Tim has outscored Tyler by 15% this season and 25% in the last 6 weeks so hes’ the clear favorite, but anything can happen.

I think a lot of those championship bracket teams were thankful they weren’t playing in the consolation bracket this as there were some high scores among the battle for the scraps. The two highest league scores from this week (Nick and me) will face off next week for 5th.

The power rankings ignore the playoff bracket so it doesn’t make a lot of sense. If you’re curious, Tyler is #5. I only publish the top 4 to avoid shaming anyone.

1. Ben (Kool Aid Kid)
2. Tim (Beer-me) +1
3. Nick (Insert Creative Name) +-1
4. Andy (RAAAWWWRRRRR!!!) +2

Fantasy Football 2019 – Week 14

This week was a game to forget for the Seahawks. The defense was porous in the first half and aside from the first drive (which only ended in a field goal) the offense looked hapless. With the 49ers winning, the Seahawks are back in the wild card game. Locking up the division and getting home field advantage would be a huge deal for the Seahwaks but it’s an uphill battle now.

This wasn’t a super important week in our league as it was never going to change the playoff spots, but it did adjust the seeding a bit. Logan gets the #1 seed. He’ll take on Tim and Tyler will face off against Luke. Tyler went from the worst score last week to the highest score this week. And Logan posted exactly the same score that he had last week.

1. Ben (Kool Aid Kid)
2. Nick (Insert Creative Name) + 2
3. Tim (Beer-me) -1
4. Luke (Helmetheads) -1

One extra note: as I was writing this post I realized that I hadn’t clicked publish on last week’s post… and nobody commented. Am I talking to the wind? Please let me know if you want me to continue this next year.

Fantasy Football 2019 – Week 13

There have been so many great Seahawks games this year! These wins feel a lot different from the Super Bowl year when there were so many blowouts and “easy” wins. With the win on Monday night, they not only made Kirk Cousins the first QB to lose his first 8 MNF appearances, but they now jump to the 2nd seed in the playoffs as the top of the NFC West. The 49ers are 10-2 and in a wild card spot!

The playoffs are pretty much locked in our league. Next week would have been more interesting, but Russell snagged enough points to help Logan top Andy. Technically Tim could still miss the playoffs but that’s so unlikely that it’s not even worth explaining. Congrats to Luke, Logan, Tyler and Tim who will be battling for the playoffs in Week 15! This coming week will decide the seeding.

The power rankings? They’re just rubbing salt in my wounds.

1. Ben (Kool Aid Kid) +1
2. Tim (Beer-me) -1
3. Luke (Helmetheads)

Fantasy Football 2019 – Week 12

Is it just me or did the Eagles get booed more in Philly than they would have in Seattle? Philly fans are rough. The Seahawks defense caused a lot of those bad plays that earned boos from the crowd. It was fun to see the turnovers being generated on a day when the offense wasn’t fully clicking. Well, it wasn’t clicking except for a great game from Penny. I keep hearing that Carson is the future and it’s ok to fumble a lot because he’s so good but … really? He has 6 fumbles this year. That’s enough for 12th worst in the NFL and he’s the only running back in the top 24 (all others are QBs).

After the dust settled in our league, Tim had beaten Luke to keep the Scherschel brothers in a tie with Tim edging Luke out slightly in total points. Logan lost to my dad to stay in that three way tie for 2nd. Tyler is on top after beating Andy. Looking at the records, point totals, and schedule, I think Tyler, Tim and Luke are pretty much a lock for the playoffs. Logan has the best odds of taking that 4th spot, but if Andy beats him this week then that gets a little more interesting. Only two weeks left in our regular season. Tim is going to be hard to stop with Lamar Jackson leading the way.

The power rankings have me up in 2nd despite my almost complete lack of a chance to make the playoffs and look who popped up into 4th! Our league standings are really odd this year when you look at points for/against.

1. Tim (Beer-me) +1
2. Ben (Kool Aid Kid) +1
3. Luke (Helmetheads) -2
4. Nick (Insert Creative Name) +1
