A reader recently wrote me an email and asked how I measure myself in the world of fantasy football? I replied "By height" I stand at 6 feet 1 inch tall so that puts me pretty high (ouch sorry) in the standings.
My compliments to Chevy Chase and Caddyshack for that comeback.
Seriously..How have I done in the six years of playing competitively in the high stakes fantasy football arena?
Well my record speaks for itself.
2006 World Championship of Fantasy Football (WCOFF) 8-3 regular season (#2 seed, winner of $1500)
2007 WCOFF 8-3 Lost in League Championship Game (winner of $2500)
2008 Fantasy Football Players Championship (http://www.theffpc.com/) Neptune League #13 6-5, #2 seed with 2nd most total points (winner of $1500); Overall 7th place of 180
2009 Fantasy Football Players Championship (http://www.theffpc.com/) Joe Montana League #10 8-3, Regular season champion-#1 seed (#1 H2H and #1 Total Points)(winner of $1500); Overall 16th of 228
2010 Fantasy Football Players Championship (http://www.theffpc.com/) Clark W. Griswold League 8-3, missed playoffs by 3 points (yes a FG); 5th in Toilet Bowl
2011 Fantasy Football Players Championship (http://www.theffpc.com/) League #58 10-1, Regular season champion-#1 seed (winner of $3500); Lost in League Championship Game; Overall ?? of 720
So in the past 6 years of 12-team high stake fantasy football leagues, playing against the best of the best in the world (if you pay over $1400 to play in these contests, you better be good), I have a combined regular season record of 48-18 (WCOFF 16-6 and FFPC 32-12) or a .750 win/loss record. Some may be better over the last six years but I will stack that up against anyone. One year of missed playoffs in six years of playing competitive high stakes (HSL) fantasy football. Now if I could just grow an inch or two I'd really have the competition....
