    QB Moore RB Jennings RB Zenner WR A Brown WR Edelman FL Gabriel TE Green D DET K Prater When 6 of 8 first picks were QBs, I decided to abandon that position and focus on filling wr/rb's, ideally targeting NE and PIT for 3 games each, avoiding nfc like the plague. That lasted a total of 3 picks, but I like those first 3 picks of Brown, Edelman and Green. At r5-6 I decided to let Predator pick between Cook and Moore, and finish filling out rb/flex, because while I was assured one of the bottom QBs I wanted to try and squeeze points out of as many other slots as possible. I also planned to go Def and kicker early, but again the weird 12/13 pick spot messed me up.. r3-4 felt way too early, and by r5-6 all my targeted def/kickers were gone, so I again felt I needed points out of the last rb and flex. Zenner and Gabriel I ~hope~ will each get 2 games. I guess now I am rooting for a PIT v DET superbowl, lol? 12th was a tough spot, the drop off from r1-2 to r3-4 felt huge. But I also really enjoyed this format and the challenge. I don't have regret picks, but I also don't have terribly high hopes for my rb committee... or defense/kicker... or QB for that matter.... GL everyone!

    QB...A.Smith RB...Zeke RB...LeBlount WR...A.Cooper WR...W.Fuller F...K.Stills TE...D.Sims K...C.Bosley D...Pittsburgh Once I saw where I was picking I knew the top QBs would be gone, so I built my team accordingly. QB...There were 6 QBs I wanted and all were gone by my pick. That left Stafford, Eli, Smith and the 3 mutts. I waited as long as I could and was able to get Smith who I'm hoping might give me 2 games. RB...My obvious strength with 2 guys who could be in the SB. I knew I wanted to fill RB early because after the first 7 or 8 it fell off a cliff. Waiting on RB got you guys who might get you 2 or 3 points if they even played. WR...With the top guys gone I was able to at least grab 2 guys who play each other ensuring I get one through to week 2. F...By this time RB was a wasteland and the WRS were either deep backups on good teams or guys likely to only play one game so I went Stills for upside and because he's been hot lately. Hoping for a one game explosion. TE...Went in conceding TE because I don't like many to do much, and you need to concede something in these setups. Sims has had decent games lately. K&Def...Two key spots where I wanted to use fairly early picks because these spots are tons more valuable in this format than regular season head to head. I was able to get one of my top three in each spot and hopefully get at least two if not three games from the Steelers.

    QB - Stafford RB - Montgomery RB - Collins WR - Baldwin WR - Shepard TE - Wilson Flex - Coates D/ST - Seattle K - Gould The Montgomery pick over Zeke was strictly because I like GB over Dallas so I'm thinking I could get more games out of him as opposed to a potential 1 and done from Zeke. Obviously it's a gamble but this whole format makes any pick a risk. I was also hoping that Adams might make it back to me which didn't happen. If nothing else I was hoping to get someone out of the Adams, AB, Edelman, Blount bunch and they went with 4 of the 6 picks in between my picks so I had to pivot to another team I like in Seattle. Obviously all my eggs are pretty much in the Seattle basket with Collins, Baldwin, Wilson and Seattle D. So I probably need Seattle to make the super bowl for a realistic shot at winning. I like their chances to get there and everything else seemed to be gone from the AFC side on teams that I liked so that kind of became my strategy. All in baby! If GB happens to lose to the Giants, hopefully they can go further with Shepard and Gould on my team. Stafford was picked only because I thought he was the best of what was left. Coates, if healthy, maybe catches a few long passes but I don't have a lot of faith in him. I was really hoping for Tye or Jesse James in the last round but with them gone, I was back to the Seattle well. There's definitely some different strategy that goes into this playoff format and i'm interested in how it plays out. Thanks for letting me join as an alternate!

    AROD Dion Lewis Charcandrick West T. Williams Beasley Jimmy G J. Kearse MIA D Seabees Kicking Starting off with AROD was nice. It was a tough call between AROD, Brady, or Leveon. I do agree going QB early may have its advantage here, but i also think if a guy like Leveon can go from the WC game all the way to the AFC title game with some monster games, it could be huge. That being said i took the hottest player in the game right now in AROD. I think they beat the GMEN, beat the Cowboys, and i have them in the SB, as i did to start this season. Funny bc my thought to start this year was GB vs Giants in the NFC title game, with GB in the SB, Looks like we get that earlier then i thought. My RB's could be my biggest boom or bust factor in this roster. If Lewis gets used the way i hope he does in this PO's, i may have a very good option going deep into the PO's. With West, the pickings were getting bare and i think he's going to split work with Ware, he's also sniped GL work from him this year, thats what I'm banking on here. West looked pretty dang good last week as well, and even took some nice pass plays to the house. If they sneak passed the Steelers, even better. While i do love the match ups for my Cowboys Wrs in TWILL/Beasley no matter who comes to town, i do fear and predict they might lose to the Pack. I may only get one game from this pair which would suck, but if they sneak passed GB and get to the title game, there will be so much focus on Dez/Zeke i think Beasley and TWILL provide more value for targets then some would expect, i expect at least one of these WRs to be a key contributor to the Cowboys offense. Now to my Hawks: Jimmy G and Kearse. I love the match ups starting with the Lions for both my players, Jimmy G should do work vs DET and Kearse has seen an uptick in targets since the loss of Lockett. I think Seattle beats, DET, then ATL, and i should have this pair in the NFC title game vs Rodgers, IMO. Seattle going to ATL in the dome in the next round could be a juicy match up for many players. Now where i s--- the bed. On the turn i took TWILL/Kearse, i F'd up. I should have gone with my gut at the time and picked KC D and Santos. Instead i opted for the WR's and then as i should have expected but didn't, i ended up with the worst Defense in Miami and a Kicker in Seabass who maybe one and done. I would have rather had KC D and Santos going into the second round, and its very possible they take down the Steelers being that they are in KC. Good luck everyone. I had a lot of fun playing FF all year, and this PO challenge i expect to be loads of fun as well.

    QB - Ben Roethlisberger (2-4 Games) RB - Lamar Miller (2) RB - Darren McFadden (1-3) WR - Tyreek Hill (1) WR - Chris Hogan (3) TE - Eric Ebron (1) FL - CMike (3) DST - NE (3) K - Steven Hasuhka (2-3) I couldn't pass on Big Ben at 3rd pick but it impacted the quality of skill players pretty significantly. If Pitt makes a good run I should get 3 games out of Ben. With Brock at the Helm, I am looking for 2 big games from Lamar to get me some points stashed away. DMC is a lotto ticket for a vulture or accumulating a handful of points week over week, assuming they make a run. Tyreek, I picked because I sense I will walk away from that game with either Big Ben or Tyreek left and be happy with either. Hogan I am hoping for some 6-9 point games from and maybe one breakout game for double digits. Ebron, it looked like the remaining TEs would take 2-3 games to equal Ebrons one game point total. Hoping for a TD. Cmike, I just hope they don't cut him if GB makes a run. NE DST should get big pts against Hou and then go the distance. Hauska plays Home, Dome, Dome if things go right. Good luck all!

    QB Connor Cook RB Jalen Richard RB DeAngelo Williams WR Julio Jones WR Davante Adams WR Eli Rogers TE Jared Cook D/ST Green Bay Packers K Matt Bryant Team slogan: Go Pack Go fairly simple at the 1.11: if you can't get a top QB or RB, stack up everywhere else. In hindsight, I could have gone with either Antonio Brown or Devonta Freeman. I chose Adams over these two for the following reasons: 1. Picking Freeman meant too much exposure to the Falcons. Epecially with super stud Julio locked in as a second round selection, and with Taylor Gabriel rated as my favorite of all the mid round WR3s, I was keen on staying away from putting most of my proverbial eggs in the Falcons basket. While I like the Falcons' chances more and more with each passing day, I'm not sure I can bet the house on them playing more than two games with Green Bay/Dallas living in the same bracket. Having said that, the two games are expected to be high scoring, fantasy-friendly games; so adding a Falcons kicker at the one and done position is still justifiable. 2. My lack of confidence in the Steelers. I'm not sure the General public understands how good the Kansas City Chiefs are. While Andy Reid's men lack star power, they boast of considerable success in one of the league's toughest divisions. They possess the 3 elements needed for post season success; 1. A strong pass rush with Dee Ford and Justin Houston. 2. A strong, clock killing run game, and 3. Home field advantage. The latter being particularly noteworthy, as Arrowhead remains one of the toughest stadiums to play in. KC at Arrowhead presents a massive stumbling block, so I'm not too sure if the Steelers last beyond 2 games either. With that said, this is a game of probabilities and accumulation. The Steelers do possess the star power and the experience; they cannot be ignored as a Super Bowl contender, so I found it fairly easy to justify picking Eli Rogers as a WR3. It guarantees me the necessary "just in case" exposure to a AFC powerhouse guaranteed to feature in two games. DeAngelo Williams was an equally sensible pick for the same purpose, and as the most valuable handcuff in the competition, he could be the wildcard to give me an advantage. Speaking of wildcards, the nature of the league's format made Jared Cook a fairly straightforward selection in the third round. surprisingly enough, Aaron Rodgers has a much better QB rating with him as opposed to without him, and this could be indicative of a larger role going forward. In the absence of a steady run game, receivers bear the burden of moving the chains, making Cook a central figure while defenses focus their energies on stopping jordy Nelson and Davante adams. Last but not least, we're obviously banking on the Raidahs to pull an upset. Connor Cook turned in a competent performance against Denver, and while the playoffs may not be the ideal time to make your first full start, he has shown he belongs at this level. With two 1000 yard receivers to throw to, one can expect a decent fantasy performance. Not so for Jalen Richard, who is more of a peripheral player. However, he tends to flash each time he gets the ball and holds one of the league's highest elusive ratings...what better to unleash him than in the playoffs? Fingers crossed. Good luck to everyone, especially the packers and steelers, who I hope will be playing the Super Bowl

    There is a great article breaking all of that down. It isn't really as bad as it looks on paper though. Aaron Rodgers has struggled since winning a SB progressing in the playoffs, but people continue to say he is the best QB in the NFL. It is a team sport. Coaching staff, front office, ownership, and the team all matter. Way too much blame and credit is given to the QB position. It is definitely the most important position on a team, but too much weight is given to it.

    Matt Ryan Tevin Coleman Thomas Rawls Malcolm Mitchell Michael Crabtree Anquan Boldin C.J. Fiedorowicz Nick Novak Texans D/ST Obviously I'll be rooting for the Falcons, but I was happy to get Rawls and Mitchell too, because I figure they both get at least two games. Once my roster started to fill out and the player pool thinned, I decided to take players from the same matchup. I had Rawls, so I took Boldin to be guaranteed 2 games from one. Same with Fiedorowicz/Crabtree....guaranteed 2 from one. And since Crabtree is the better player of those two, at least if Houston loses and I lose CJF, my kicker and defense, I'll be guaranteed a pretty good WR in Crabtree for Round 2. But really, gonna need Atlanta to play at least 2 games to have a shot here...

    QB - Tom Brady RB - DeAndre Washington RB - Alfred Blue WR - Golden Tate WR - Landry Jones FL - Geronimo Allison TE - Travis Kelce K - Dan Bailey DST - Kansas City I will keep this short and sweet as I've never been one to give the type of analysis you all provide (see most of my past on various forum season long leagues). I pretty much knew with #2 I was going QB, but thought it would be ARod. I wanted the hottest player from the hottest team, but that's just the way it goes. While I lose the WC weekend, I was going to take the most important person from the team I believe will rep the AFC in the SB. As stated above, the only downside with QB that early in the round is a definite downgrade at positional players. I took Kelce next because I think he is the best TE in the playoffs and should give me at least 1-2 great games. My biggest mistake came with my third pick. Honestly have no idea what in the hell I was thinking talking Tate. I think I panicked at not having a #1 from one of them teams who could make a deep run, so I just took a team #1 lol. Hindsight is 20/20, but I probably would have preferred to have taken a Rawls or Ware there and then settled for secondary receiving options on a team with a better chance for a run. I was actually really happy to get Landry next, but I do have the thought of losing both starting receivers right away staring me in the face. I knew I needed a RB and had Washington/Collins/Zenner all on my board. If I was only getting one game out of Zenner, didn't want it to be in Seattle. Collins is probably who I should have taken, but being from the Bay Area I do have some hope left for the Raiders to at least get one, and they'll have to rely on the run. With the run on defenses and kickers it made Bailey and KC pretty easy choices with what was left, Blue came out of the trash of remaining RB options to at least give me some possible points in the divisional round, and Allison is my definite WC. Hope he carves something out with or without Cobb, and at least should get me something for a few games. Overall, didn't really seem to focus too much on one team, would probably like to see NE/KC in the AFC at least. I don't think I stand too much of a chance unless people who focused on certain teams lose those guys right away.

    Well now that the last two picks are certain positions, the other WR I was considering over Allison was DeVante Parker in addition to Marvin Jones Jr. But for the same reason, already having Landry I did not want to be guaranteed to lose 2 WRs in one game if either of those teams lose.

    I do think im a little off GB as much as the rest of you. But the wild card to super bowl factor is huge. I just think ATL has a powerful offense that could match GB in a shootout, and dallas plays a ball control type of game, keeping GBs offense off the field, which maybe be there best defense. GBs secondary is horrible so i dont doubt anyone could consistently score In AFC the steelers are really the only team that could run the table to me, but im much bigger fans of KC and NE, as most of you are im sure. Hoping that the texans can overcome the raiders and i can at least get two games out of them. But im happy to at least have a few peices out of NE and KC. Gonna feels pretty straight forward but.. Championship prediction: ATL vs DAL NE vs KC Super bowl: DAL vs NE

    QB Dak Prescott RB Devonta Freeman RB James White WR Deandre Hopkins WR Jeremy Maclin FL Randall Cobb TE Austin Hooper D ATL K Franks I mainly targetted guys i thought would have a good chance of playing more then 1 game. My choices ended up being a little spread out, so i really havent bought into any team, cause honestly im not so sure! I really think the NFC in general is a toss up. AFC theres obviously a few favorites, but i also wanted a few guys playing early. Overall im mainly pleased with the outcome, my hope is to be at least accumulating points every week. But someone who bought into the right team may have my number.

    QB - Eli Manning RB - Bell RB - Perkins WR - Sanu WR - Richardson TE - Bennett Flex - Tye D/ST - Giants K - Gostkowski i'll go into a little further detail than my previous post. i did alter my strat after missing on my top qb targets round 1. i wanted to avoid atl, dallas, hou, oak, miami, det, and kc players from the start. my wish was gb, ne, pitt, and seattle players as i like those teams for championship weekend. i passed wilson for bell because i like the steelers to at least play three games a bit better than the hawks and bell can pace qb scoring. once gb players became unrealistic i hedged my heart with g-strings as a replacement. i was not too thrilled with sanu as my top wr but i knew i would be facing tough choices by favoring the te/dst/k spots to stick with the plan. my wish was kearse and richardson at wr and barely missed (i had some hope of an eli/obj stack too but not to be). just looking for four games total from my wrs. i don't want the giants to win but if they do i will be sitting pretty in this at least and the cowgirls may be nervous as heck, especially if stubbs comes back for the divisional round. tye in the flex is meh but all options were and for the past few weeks he has been getting targets and fit the plan while taking an option away from the three teams still needing a te. good luck everyone

    thats the truth on Carroll but i figured you guys had to be thinking it over as i was. Give me Prosise over Rawls next year easily. Love the guys talent and they way he was being used. With a bit more experience under his belt he's going to be a player to keep an eye on. Taking a chance on Prosise in this format though is a quick coffin nail i figure with so much unknown
