I've had Godwin on my team all year. 30+ 2 weeks ago...6 this week. All year long. He's in the top 5 all year long and I almost dumped him. :encouragement:
I have Mike Evans, I'm well aware of that pain :p

Congrats Ax, you paid me back for last week :p

I knew I had a hill to climb this week, but injuries once again did my team in...just the story of my season. Made some good calls with waiver claims, and a couple bench plays I shouldn't have done, but risk is inherent in fantasy :D

Curious, are the players on the teams that have been eliminated up for grabs for the remaining playoff teams?

If so I'll “release” mine but wanted to do it in a fair manner.

That is generally pretty frowned upon, actually. I believe there is even an option to lock rosters once eliminated to curb that behavior in the system.

Hush! You weren't supposed to tell anyone! I guess I shouldn't have told you you suck. :oops:

In all seriousness, I would find this action inappropriate. We went into the playoffs with a team in place, and only a certain number of players available. I think those players available as we go into the playoffs should be the only ones that remain available, unless someone still in the payoffs releases a player, making them available.

Yeah I was inquiring only for you guys left in the playoffs, didn't actually know how that worked honestly. Basically do our players go into the FA pool or what?

I'd definitely leave it up to commish Kel if he wanted to dissolve us eliminated teams and divvy them up.

Basically a supplemental draft type thing

If the regular season is over and you missed the playoffs, or if you lose and are out of the playoffs, you are done. I can lock the rosters to prevent that, but in the past we generally haven't had that issue. Your team is your team for better or worse once you are done with your games. The remaining teams only pick from the players available. It's similar to how the NFL works in that the Ravens can't just go get McLaurin off the Redskins for the playoff run.

Quarter Final Round Recap:

In League 1, there were no upsets in the first round of the playoffs. #3 seed @dugless1ders defeated @Om despite Russell Wilson's subpar game. He will face @Neophyte in the semifinals. The other quarterfinal saw @Kel Varnsen have little trouble defeating @Ax. He will face @ZeroAnd16 in the other semifinal.

In League 2, 5th seed @Ax was able to knock off the 4th seed @Shi no Tenshi. @Ax remains alive in league 2 and will face @Canadian Hog in one semifinal.#3 seed @Elephant continues his winning ways as he easily disposes of @Win4us. He will face @Kel Varnsen in the other semifinal.

And that was with Hunter Henry scoring less than 1 point. I'm sure glad I played Kenyan Drake though.

You didn't even need him. I had a chance at Miles Sanders and didn't take him, trusted Kirck Cousins more than I should. the one time Saquon shows up after his injury, my other money RB's all crap the bed.

Dude, you hit on every player except Hunter for the best performance of the year. Has anyone else even scored 180 points?

Semifinal Recap:

It was another great week in the BGO Fantasy Football Leagues.

In League 1, upsets were the theme as the top 2 seeds were knocked off in their first playoff action. @Kel Varnsen was able to defeat @ZeroAnd16 with ease behind the always dominant efforts of Lamar Jackson. The other semi final was much more competitive and came down to the Monday Night game. @dugless1ders upset @Neophyte behind a strong balanced attack that saw 7 of his 9 players score in double digits. Missed FGs and XPs could have played a role in determining the winner, but the victory was all but sealed when Will Lutz kicked a FG on the Saints first drive. @Kel Varnsen and @dugless1ders will face off in the finals for the league 1 crown. @dugless1ders won the only match up between the two during the regular season.

In League 2, there were no surprises as both the top seeds were able to win. @Canadian Hog was able to knock of @Ax, though it took the Monday Night game to do so. @Ax went into the Monday night game with a slight lead and saw it quickly evaporate behind the strong performances of Michael Thomas and Will Lutz. Marlon Mack never could get anything going and once the Saints got a big lead, that prevented the Colts from running the ball and that was all she wrote in the 1st semifinal. The other semifinal was not nearly as close as @Kel Varnsen knocked off @Elephant by a large margin. Surprising playoff heroes Miles Sanders and Kenyan Drake provided the majority of the winning margin. Top seed @Canadian Hog will face off against @Kel Varnsen looking to avenge his regular season losses to @Kel Varnsen who won both previous match ups.

Yeah, that's was my undoing. Unfortunately I don't have a crystal ball, so I went based on the fact that the Cardinals pass D has been giving up a ton of yardage. Looking back at it, I should have hedged my bet with sitting one of the Seahawks in case this happened. Obviously I can't plan for Carson's injury, but having Wilson and Lockett in meant if Wilson sucked I would be hurt in 2 positions. That's exactly what happened.
