Week 13 FantasyFootballGuidebook.com Results

I am in 18 Leagues this year. Divided them into active management-I set a lineup each week and do adds/drop
and Draft and Forget or DraftMasters (DM) or Draft Experts (DE) where a computer sets optimal lineup for each week after the games  are played and no add/drops/waivers allowed. You play the hand you are dealt after the draft.
In leagues where it is scored by total points I give myself a win if I beat half of the teams in the league. 

Active Management (wins in bold) (9 leagues left)
1)Fantasy Football Players Championship (FFPC) $250 Classic Loss 9-4 6th place -Made Playoffs!
2) FFPC $250 Dynasty #38 Win 9-4 5th overall-Made Playoffs!
3) FFPC $77 Dynasty #7 Win 9-4 2nd overall-Bye1st rd Playoffs
4) FFPC $77 Dynasty #17 Win 11-2 1st overall-Bye 1st Rd Playoffs
5) FFPC $35 Classic # 6019 Loss 9-4 6th-Made Playoffs!
6) Pro Football Forecast Magazine Experts PPR Win 9-4 2nd, playoffs start week 15-playoffs assured
7) Pro Football Forecast Mag Experts Non-PPR  Win 11-2 2nd,
playoffs start week 15-playoffs assured
8) Scott Fish Bowl (SFB420) 2017 Made Playoffs with Total Points-Had a Bye in week 13
9) Local League Win 8-5 3rd-Made Playoffs

So of the 10 active leagues I made/will make 9 of 10 playoffs!

Draft and Forget (or Draft Expert Leagues)
11) FFPC $77 Dynasty DE #22 Win 9-4 5th
12) FFPC $35 DE #5278 Win 11-2 3rd
13) FFPC $35 DE #6174 Win 10-3 2nd
14) FFPC $35 DE Double UP Win 9-4 6th
15) FFPC Pros vs Joes Contest Loss 6-7 11th
16) FFPC $35 DE #7685 Loss 5-8 7th
17) Fantasy Index Experts Win 10-3 4th
18) Fantasy Index Auction Loss 7-6 5th

So 18 games each week. Only 16 this week as one league is over and done (FPC) and had a bye in the Scott Fish Bowl 420. 

11-5 this week...

146-86 overall (.630 winning percentage)
At .500 or above in 15 of the 18 leagues!!!

Bring on the playoffs in Week 14!

Ask the Expert: What do you believe is the perfect system for fantasy football playoffs?

What do you believe is the perfect system for fantasy football playoffs? Four teams and Week 15-16, six or eight teams, cumulative point totals, etc.? Make your case for the best approach to the postseason.

One thing for sure-the perfect fantasy football playoff system does NOT include week 17. I prefer 4 teams out of 12 making the playoffs. More than that and you take significance away from the regular season games. Finally while I love H2H I think the best teams win in a cumulative points format where teams play over a two or three week period. So the best approach is a 13 week regular season with 4 of 12 teams making the playoffs and then playing in a three week (weeks 14-16) cumulative points format with perhaps some points advantage to start the playoffs based on seeding or total points scored during the regular season.

Which player or players are you most thankful for this season, and say why.


Never thought I would say this but Case Keenum. I am a huge Vikes fan. Suffered through numerous Super Bowl losses and thought their season was over. Keenum has put us in a 6-game winning streak and in position to have a 3 game lead after we beat Detroit on Thanksgiving! Go VIKES!

Ask the Expert Question: Who gets your vote for the first half of the season fantasy MVP?


Who gets your vote for the first half of the season fantasy MVP?

Deshaun Watson hands down. Look at where he was being drafted before the season started-in most leagues he was NOT being drafted. Many did not expect him to start week 1 for the Texans. The rookie QB has nearly 28 fantasy points per game with 1699 passing yards, 19 passing TDs, 260 rushing yards and 2 rushing TDs. MVP. Can you say Championship!!!!

Ask the Expert Question: Now that you've had a chance to see most of the 2017 rookies in action, which one player (any position) do you believe will go on to have the best NFL career? Feel free to name more than one if you choose.



Now that you've had a chance to see most of the 2017 rookies in action, which one player (any position) do you believe will go on to have the best NFL career? Feel free to name more than one if you choose. 

Leonard Fournette. I am old school-really love the work horse RB. The Jags do not seem to have anyone else and no other weapons in the arsenal. And are most likely not to get any real weapons in the foreseeable future. Many will take Kareem Hunt but I am still trying to justify my sell high call from a few weeks ago.

Kareem Hunt. He looked a little less "Superman" on Sunday Night and has the rookie wall to contend with along with two offensive linemen out. I say sell High-very high. He also seems to start slow and really explode in the second half of games when defenses are tired and run-down. He may not see that as much in the next few weeks. Well he does face PIT this week so perhaps the time to sell will be after a big game versus the Steelers this week.
