Week 8 Dismal for FFGuidebook.com

FFGuidebook.com had a terrible week 8 going 5-9, 62-50 for the season.

Realize too that most of the 14 leagues are either Expert leagues (where Fantasy Football Experts from the media compete) or high stakes contests where everyone has a high entry stake and I end up facing the best of the best. 

No excuses 5-9  is bad. But there were some freaky performances in week 8. 

Here is my record for the 2014 season to date: 
Week 1 8-6 (8-6)
Week 2 7-7 (15-13)
Week 3 6-8 (21-21) Not liking this trend!
Week 4 10-4 (31-25)
Week 5 11-3 (42-28)
Week 6 8-6 (50-34)
Week 7 7-7 (57-41)
Week 8 5-9 (62-50) I seem to be fading…lets hope for a rebound in week 9 and 10 when 6 teams each week are on a bye.

Background-I play in 14 leagues this year ( I drafted in 16 but two were mock drafts for magazines with no leagues played out). Four of the 14 leagues are "Draft and Forget" or Draft Master Leagues with no lineup decisions or add/drops. All of the Draft Masters leagues are total points (TP) only and the FFPC $250 Satellite is TP too. In these leagues I consider it a win each week if I finish in the top half of the league in scoring. 

Leagues (Wins are bolded):
Fantasy Football World Championship (FFWC) $279 RotoBowl W 4-4 (3rd TP)
Fantasy Football World Championship (FFWC) $179 Qualifier L 3-5 (8th TP)

National Fantasy Football Championship (NFFC) $150 Sat L 5-3 (4th TP)   
The Fantasy Championship (TFC) W 6-2 (4th TP)
