As with any NFL season, there are highs and lows. Our goal in fantasy football is to not just weather the storm; rather, we try to outsmart everyone else and be the last boat left in the fleet.
While a few crazy leagues play through Week 17 of the NFL season, the vast majority of fantasy leagues held their championship game this week. Some were in the hunt for the league title, and this remained active to the very end.
The first round of the fantasy playoffs is over (for most), and now we move on to the 2nd round where both teams, and the start/sit questions, get harder.
Hill has his second 100-yard game of the season this weekend as he finished with 111 rushing yards and a touchdown. And, to reward his owners for sticking with him, Hill caught 3-of-4 targets for an additional 30 yards.
For most of us, the fantasy playoffs are here and we are now in the one-and-done part of the football season. Win and you move on; lose, and you drop into the consolation bracket and get to fight for the toilet bowl title.
With the regular season over for fantasy football, owners will now turn their attention to the playoffs. The waiver wire is a barren wasteland filled with landmines that are sure to hurt you more than help you.
Many fantasy football playoffs kick off in Week 14, making this week a must-win for those looking to secure their post-season spot. There is nothing better than looking at the standings and knowing you are in, regardless of the outcome of this week.
