Good Times got the fifth-highest point total in the league (regular season + playoffs) and took down Hulk Smash 169.78 to 145.00. Good Times has been unstoppable and has now won six straight. This win was sweeter than most, serving as revenge for a Week 9 145.01 to 137.46 loss to Hulk Smash.

I got lucky and won the Elite League with:
QB: Andrew Luck, Alex Smith
RB: David Johnson, Jay Ajayi, Ty Montgomery
WR: Amari Cooper, Malcolm Mitchell, Randall Cobb, Willie Snead
TE: Zach Ertz, Jack Doyle
K:  Roberto Aguayo, Nick Novak
DEF: Los Angeles Rams, Minnesota Vikings

There were quite a few moving pieces in my roster, though. Above is just my final roster.
 

I was the 3 seed, and scored the 5th highest points.

 

I won the championship by 5 points, simply due to the Cowboys clinching home field, and the holidays.

Don't sell yourself short. Your waiver pickups of Jay Ajayi, Ty Montgomery, Mitchell and Zach Ertz all played pivotal roles at different junctures. Luck and David Johnson were consistent studs, so your top 2 picks played as such. 

 

Vikings fizzled at the end but you were able to overcome that with roster depth.

Well, thanks.

It was a very competitive season, and a lot of fun.

Was this from the Average Joe's League, or other?

Another league tried to re join joes but had a problem getting back in . Was a crazy season started out 1-4 was in last place after week 5 but made all the right add drops and player decisions to only lose 1 game after week 5 that was to the fellow I played in the championship game .

QB: Cousins and Stafford

RB: David Johnson, Ezekiel Elliot

WR: Nelson, Evans

TE: Olsen

Flex: Riddick, Montgomery, Ertz, Meredith

K: Bryant

Def: streamed all year after JJ Watt got hurt, mainly whoever was facing the Browns

 

notable move was trading Frank Gore, Zach Miller, and Willie Snead for Elliot to a guy ravaged with injuries but mostly had an unlucky schedule. One bad draft pick in John Brown. Had Deangelo help me get to 3-0. Finished second in season and first overall.

 

Other league lost by ONE FREAKING POINT. But I fell backwards into the finals from the 5th seed

 

QB: Rodgers

RB: Gore, Dion Lewis (lost Forte and Riddick)

WR: Julio, Cooks (lost Cobb)

TE: Bennett (lost Zach Miller)

Flex: Meredith, Moncrief

Def: Broncos, Patriots, Giants, Chargers vs Brown's

K: Justin Tucker

 

if only I hung on to the pats (dropped them two weeks ago for Giants against Detroit), my opponent grabbed them and beat us by ONE.  

 

RIP HARAMBE was very close to two ships but I'll settle for one.

How did you get David Johnson and Ezekiel Elliott? Did you trade for one or draft them both? In all 5 of my leagues, both of them went 1st round. Got Elliott in a couple I won, but I had no shot at David Johnson. Congrats btw!

Thank you! I drafted Johnson but had a guy with very bad luck (scheduling and injuries), he was at the point where his team was like Elliot, Ajayi, Sanders, Austin, Rudolph, and Sterling Shepard and I got him to trade me Elliot for Gore, Z Miller (was the 4th best TE at the time), and Snead. This was the week he had mostly everyone on bye too so he was pretty desperate. 12 team league, some people weren't happy but it made sense bc he was going to be starting all three guys and the points he got from me were more than just starting elliot and his trash guys.

Nice trade! I had a couple offers for Elliott but stood pat. He was an absolute beast this year, and with that rb combo, I can only imagine how well you did. That's a move that wins leagues, great job! :thmup:

Thanks man, its all about the combo! In 2014 I drafted Antonio Brown in the second round and ended up picking Odell Beckham Jr in week 3 before he made his debut, won the ship. In 2012 I drafted Foster 1st overall and got AP w the 24th pick when it swung back around the year he came back from injury and was MVP. No ship that year though, ironically it was the game they played each other that lost it for me. Gonna miss fantasy til next year

I was in 7 leagues total, and ended up winning 3 SBs, lost the SB in one league, lost the game to get to the SB in two leagues, and lost in the first round of the playoffs in the last league.  I made it to the playoffs in every league, but 7 leagues was too many.  I only wanted 3, accidentally signed up for 3 more, then we started one at work a week before kickoff.

 

I'm neither proud, nor embarrassed, by this, because I accidentally signed up for 3 leagues that I thought were mock drafts on NFL.com, and there were "non-participants" in every league, which kinda takes away some of the fun.  I had an easy path to the playoffs in some leagues, while in some leagues, especially the one at work, I really had to earn it.

 

HOMER ALERT: I drafted Luck in every league but one, which auto-drafted because it was a "mock" and when some other guy took Luck 2nd overall, I left the draft room... ended up with Eli Manning/Whoever I could get in FA.  THAT was the league where I got booted in the 1st round of the playoffs.  It's like you needed either Andrew Luck or Matt Ryan to win the SB this year...  I also accumulated all of the Colts pass-catchers in every league: TY, Moncrief, Allen, Doyle.  It all paid off.  Luck to any of them and I got double points.  It was beautiful.  Every time Luck threw the ball to TY for a big gain or TD, it was like I was double-happy. :excited::scoregood::rock::headspin:

 

The one league I really cared about, the one at work, had money on the line, which I won, so it was all worth it.  Still... only 3 leagues next year.  And feel free to employ my "Colts QB-Colts Pass-catchers" combination strategy.  It has won me numerous fantasy SBs dating back to the Peyton Manning days. :thmup:

 

What I noticed about all 4 leagues that I did NOT win, was that the winner of the SB was whoever picked up Matt Ryan in FA.  Every time.  AND, I had to beat the person who had Matt Ryan for ALL 3 of my SBs, while EVERY playoff game I lost was to the team with Matt "frickin" Ryan.  It was uncanny.  Matt Ryan was the fantasy MVP as well as the NFL MVP.

 

Moral of the Story:  The only excuse that the team with Matt Ryan has for not winning the SB, is that they ran into a buzz-saw like me, who drafted well, exploited mismatches, and stayed on that waiver-wire.

    • it's kind of a win win though if we do have a bad season I won't be too upset and if we have a great season then that's awesome. unless we keep our coach and get like a late 20s pick cuz I mean we'd still get value but not as much maybe as a top 10 pick obviously. it's not as simple as just want a good season not this year. even though I always want the Colts to kick butt
    •   Denver won a superbowl with Brock Osweiler (plus a living corpse Manning). Osweiler (and Siemian both) looked a lot better under Kubiak's hand than any QB under O'Brians hand since he left Boston. Not to mention, O'Brian replaced Fitzpatrick with Hoyer, who was worse than his predecessor, then replaced Hoyer with Osweiler who also was worse than his predecessor. Imo, O'Brian couldn't install a system for his lesser talented QB's, which would've helped them use their strengths.   On the other hand, Pagano is a secondary coach. Let's see what he has done there? The Colts (Grigson) didn't draft a single player in the secondary in the first 3 years. Of the free agent additions: Davis become a first team all pro. Mike Adams made the pro bowl multiple times and played his best football over age 30 in Indy. Dwight Lowery had a decent year here, one of his best. Greg Toler wasn't good, but he played his best football in Indy. The Laron Landry project failed, but it failed more due to not being able to stay healthy, than production. (I didn't particularly like him though, but I can't say he was terrible when healthy.) Darius Butler become a decent player, having his best years of his carreer in Indy. Then, when the Colts finally decided to draft in the secondary: D'Joun Smith turned out to be a bust. Health issues again. Geathers became a fine player - sadly, health issues there again.  For T.J. Green, Hooker and Wilson the jury is still out. And they found Rashan Melvin off the streets. This is not bad at all. Most players, who stayed healthy, played their best in Indy. Of course talent matters. You can't make pro-bowlers out of journeymen.     Pagano's record is 15-7 at home and 13-14 on the road against coaches ahead of him. That's not a bad record considering that coaches ahead of him usually have better rosters under their control. (The numbers might be off by one or two here or there, due to coaching changes, etc. I might counted - or not counted - a game played against a previous coach. I also counted games against Harbaugh and Kubiak supposing they'd be in top10 being active. Anyway the true record must be close to the above.).   All in all, I think Pagano is right there where he belongs to after 3 winning plus 2 down seasons. Middle of the pack. But ..... I think, based on "potential", he is better than his current value. He is a top10 coach on my list.   I know many of you guys strongly disagree, but that's my honest opinion. There are better coaches in the NFL than him. But not many. So I really wish Pagano will prove himself in 2017. Aaand, if he fails and will be fired, then I cross my fingers that there will be at least one guy available of those "not many". (Yes, despite my belief that he is a fine coach, I agree that he has to go if he fails to prove himself. Because that's the right decision. But honestly, I'll be scared if that happens. It won't be easy to find a better guy. And there is always a chance to be ChipKelly-d....)  
    • Banner was up to 260Lbs He was at 253lbs for the combine with a goal of 245lbs. I thought that's what I read.  Walker adding 7 so he's back up over 240.    Wilson at 207lbs jumps out to me. We heard about "football shape" for him. He was 211lbs at the combine. You'd think him being in better shape would make him a blink quicker. If he's a little faster we may not get him. I'm excited to see this kid with Hooker on the back end. If we can get Geathers back we could have something.   
    •   And, wittness such a weird offseason. Giving up a fortune for Mahomes, letting Poe (+Howard) go then sign Bennie Logan for similar cash? Let Charles, Knile Davis go then sign C.J. Spiller? And finally, let Maclin go and not even try to do something with the WR depth. (There was Decker available for example....)   These remind me a bit of what happened in Philly when Chip Kelly took full control. He let McCoy go then signed Murray and Matthews to huge contracts, etc. Weird moves.   Reid is not Kelly, the old man is proven and good. But still.... something doesn't feel right for me there.
    • Even though this is Camp weight [nothing to get riled over] there are a few players that intrigued me weight wise. Hooker, Woods(23lbs is alot of weight), just to name a few
