In my #1 seed team I'm loving it. 10 teamer, we have 2 RB slots and 2 WR slots, but 2 FLEX as well... been fortunate to have Rice, Martin, Morris, and Lynch every week, with Marshall and Green as my WR and RG3 QB. TE is a weak spot but really any waiver wire guy should be fine. Feeling REALLY good about this league. Won the league last year so hoping to repeat.
My other clinching team is kinda meh. Couple of same players (RG3, Morris, Marshall), and it's an IDP league and my D is pretty solid. I feel good about it but wouldn't be surprised to get knocked out at some point.
My eliminated teams were all garbage. Started 0-6 in one and clawed my way back to 5-7 but too little too late. C'est la vie.
The one team I'm fighting for my life in, if I can get in I feel really good about my chances. Solid all around team and the competition isn't too bad.
My points league has been awesome. It's a 10 teamer, 2QB and very inflated scoring. Been starting Brees and Luck all season, with Harvin/Green/D. Thomas at WR, Sproles/SJax and various other RBs. It'd be a mid-high upset if I don't finish the season at the top so I'm hoping to hold on.
If I can win at least those 2 leagues I'll consider myself happy. The two borderline teams would be gravy.

Another league I'm win and I'm in and I play the worst team in the league so I feel confident there but obviously no guarantee.
Third league I need to win and two teams to lose but crazier things have happened.
If I can get in I feel very confident with the players but fantasy football is a crazy thing.

I can't say I feel completely confident but I've got a fighting chance to take it home. My team does not have "high highs" but does not have many "low lows" so the consistency will hopefully carry me through the playoffs.

FWIW, my team is 8-4 and I'm the only team with 8 wins out of 14 teams. It's been extremely competive!

My team is finally coming into form after several key injuries (McFadden, Murray and Ant Brown). I've been scraping by with Doug Martin, Demariyus Thomas and Matt Ryan, but recently scored on some late-season waiver wire additions (Alexander, Blackmon, Moreno, Dwyer, Broyles).

In my 10 teamer we only have 4 teams get in so the playoffs are just Weeks 15 and 16. At 9-3 I'm in first place with a playoff berth clinched and 2 games and points on every team, so I have the 1 seed essentially locked up too (which doesn't really matter). My team's been pretty beastly all year and I definitely have the safest floor with a ton of upside. I just hope that my team gets healthy. Losing McCoy is a big blow potentially but maybe not if Bryce Brown keeps it up. Would like to get DeMarco back although DeMarco/Bryce could be a potentially difficult decision to make. Hopefully Percy and/or Miles Austin can be healthy since I need some WR2 production.

I think this fact makes my record look worse than it should be.

The most frustrating part: in one of my leagues I'm leading in Pts. Scored by a large margin; I'm also leading the league in Pts. Scored Against. Flat out luck has caused my fate as I only have 5 wins in that league.
Such is fantasy football.
