A salute to this league.

We have three games left and everyone is still in the hunt, all within three games of the leader. Also, there is also only a 200 point spread between the lowest scoring team and highest scoring team, with 9 of 10 teams within about 100 points. That is impressive, and more importantly, hyper competitive. Well done!

I appreciate the compliment, but I totally phoned it in during the draft and have literally somehow "backed into" the number 2 spot having no idea how or why I'm here!

The flip side of being in a league that is so tight is that you can't take anything for granted. We are all week to week in the standings. Today's snap shot will likely look much different in a few weeks. I have oscillated between 3rd and 8th all year.... one win I jump up the standings (I was in 7th place last week) and 1 loss I fall far.

With four games to go (I thought it was three, but that is what I am use to playing at ESPN), this entire league is playing the must win scenario, though right now you are in better shape than I. You probably can take a loss or two and live to tell about it. I plan to give you one of those losses this week as you are my head to head match.

May the best man win.

As long as it's me.

I tend to bring out the Jonathan Taylor type performances in players. Its to the point now when I look at whoever I'm playing from week to week and see if I can guess which stud is going to absolutely go off and which 3/4 deep guy is going to have a career day. Either way...I figure I need to win 3 of the last 4 to have a shot at the playoffs this year. I think its pretty much an "on any given Sunday" for every team in the league right now.

Well, you got the 2nd part of your wish.... well done! My Dr Jekyll / Mr. Hyde team was in full Dr. Jekyll mode this week ...... meek/weak and pathetic, sort of speak.

On paper, I think my team is really good. But, we don't play the games on paper. Fantasy Football and other games of chance.

I don't even understand what happened. I was projected to lose, from the get-go, I sat the two receivers I should have started - I'm sorry man - I did my best to lose and I still couldn't manage it!

I think the moral of the DP Football fantasy game is - "don't try too hard"!

Yep, the peril of living in a competitive league. At this point this week I was pretty sure I was going to not only beat you, but I would be in the championship game. One week later, with Cook now hurt and his backup in the starting line up of this week's opponent, I don't see how I even make the playoffs.

Do any of us have any of the starters we started with in week 1? I think I only have one, Tyreek Hill that has survived the entire season.

Story of my season. I think thats the second loss by less than half a point so far.
That locks him in the playoffs with an amazingly low point total as well.

You know, everything I do, I do with great aplomb.. my friend. That half-assed effort I put into the draft? Just to lull you into complacency.. Now, lurch, aka, the "white mamba" will strike!

Sorry, Mack. I hope you appreciate that I was a nice guy and decided not to run up the score on you!

I just want to keep things within reach for my lesser-skilled league members.
