    Well a 29/30 yo RB never works out. Despite CMC being a freak and winning me one league I probably won’t touch him next year.

    Butker just cost me the championship. I’m sure there are worse ways to lose but watching your opponent’s kicker make 6 field goals is certainly up there.

    First championship ever!
    Got too damn close at the end but my opponent had Lockett so his bust kept me from having to sweat Chandler's performance tonight.
    I win by eight even without him.

    lost by 13

    i made bad roster decisions: ekeler over warren and ford, chase over rice.

    got a text from my opponent saying, "congrats on the win" towards the end of the morning games because i was up big early. within the next few minutes, davonte gets a useless TD, godwin gets a useless long TD, and kyler gets more points + 2 pt pass (think the TD AZ scored in that window was by Connor).

    fantasy is so dumb. fuck austin ekeler. fuck bijan robinson and arthur smith. i was 12-0 to start the year and lost 3 of my last 4 games (final two regular season + final). herbert got hurt, chase got hurt + no burrow, and ekeler was elite-tier bum. ugh, i choked.

    You could have had Pacheco (player responsible for putting a nail in the coffin of user Handcuffed’s season) for what it cost you to get Ekeler. That’s hilarious. I love fantasy football. Today.

    Got third in the league in which I was the highest scorer, and I got last in my other league. I was leading the my matchup since Thursday and never gave up the lead until Mahommes knelt out the clock on the last drive of the last game which we had players playing.

    In a league where the commish this year decided to go to week 18. Tried to convince him it was a bush league move and it hurts ppl with the best players.

    I'm playing him in the "finals" and of course I have Lamar Jackson who isn't going to play next week. It's not a lot of money, I might bench my entire roster in protest. I'm pissed. Had the #1 seed and most points by a long shot

    Claims we've always done it and last year when they bumped to 18 weeks yahoo messed up. He was wrong b/c they did do it a decade ago, but I fought for that change after my first year in the league. Showed proof, but he wouldn't listen

    1st of 10, 2nd of 12, 3rd of 12 and 11th of 12. The last league is IDP and I just haven't figured it out in 3 years. Won like $800 overall, which is going towards new irons.

    Lost by 7 to the commish of my league. If Jefferson had come down with that pass in the end zone on their last drive that would’ve given me the win. Murray, Aiyuk, and the Sun God killed me.

    I’m down 5 in a 2 week final. Not ideal for the 2 week championship into week 18, but I would have lost if it was just last week. Still a slight dog this week but really hope Philly sits Hurts and AJ Brown early.
