Who's clinched a playoff spot and how do you feel about your team?

I'm loving my team, think I have a real chance of taking the title.

At 11-1, I've cruised in. Hitting on Alfred Morris, Doug Martin, and Demaryious has been huge.

I'm also 11-1. I have a ridiculous team on paper but I've learned that that doesn't guarantee anything. Just as an example, despite outscoring the next highest team by over 200 points (~20 points per week) so far this season, last week I would have lost to 4 of the 5 other playoff teams in a head to head matchup. I had my second lowest point total of the season, which is still well above average for the league, but I remain very paranoid that my players will disappoint when the $ is on the line and I will get upset by an inferior opponent who just happens to have a few players blow up at the right time.

In 7 leagues this year (how..), locked up 1st seed in one, eliminated already in three, clinched in another, need to win this week and depend on another team losing to clinch in another league, and my best team is in a points league where I'm relatively comfortably in top spot. So basically 3-4 outta 7... not great success this year lol

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.

Haven't officially "clinched a berth" but I'm guaranteed to be in based on total points and I feel very good about that team if Stafford can continue to play at a high level. Need Larry Fitz to get together too.

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'm in a ton of "fun leagues"...embarrassed to say how many but I'm probably going to make the playoffs in 75-80% of them. Clinched my division in my 16 team $$ league.

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.

I clinched with a week 12 win and actually ended up first in my division (14 total teams). I'm in a heap of trouble though as I had McCoy, McGahee, Parmele, JStewart, and Mendenhall as RB's. Having to do a running back makeover with this many teams is hard when the WW/FA pool is stripped thin. I am fortunate to have Moreno, Dwyer, and RJennings at the moment as RB fill-ins, but I will probably not make it past round 1.

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

Clinched in my 14-team league with a win last week. Playing for the BYE next week (need to win and have the 2nd seed lose).

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).

Clinched a seed in my cash league which is the league in my sig. I'm feeling good but still need a QB for week 16 since Dalton faces Pitt.

In another league i should clinch a bye this week. I have Luck/Freeman, Foster, Martin, Knowshom, BGE, Welker, Harvin, Cruz, Amendola, Daniels.

Clinched a spot with team that's in the sig. Fairly confident that my studs won't be sitting out to rest for NFL playoffs but my roster is full of "Jekyll and Hyde" players.

Money league, have won 4 straight, and am at 7-5 4th place. Top 6 get to playoffs; 4 teams at 6-6. I feel if I can win this week, which is very realistic, I can make it in

I'm in with my 14 teamer. If I can get Harvin back and either Murray or MJD, feel pretty good. RGIII and Dez got hot at the right time for me.

Need to win this week and for 2 other teams to lose in my 12 teamer...need a lot of help in that one.

10-2 Team - #1 seed. Next best teams are 8-4.

9-3 Team - #1 seed based on point over another 9-3 team, playing the #4 team this week so it will be tough. Other 9-3 team plays one of the bottom feeders.

My 16 teamer has 8 teams get in so one more regular season matchup and then Weeks 14-16 Playoffs. I'm 7-5 and have a playoff berth clinched. I'm currently 5th and have an easy matchup (against the last place team) so I could conceivably move to 3rd. If I lose I could conceivably fall to 7th which wouldn't be terrible since the 2nd place team lost Gronk, which in a 16 team league is almost a death blow to his team's chances. I have some difficult starting decisions to make for the Playoffs. If Kaepernick remains the starter I don't know whether to go with Romo or him. Romo "got me there" but he's been pretty mediocre for the most part. Also not sure whether to go with Cecil Shorts or Mike Williams at WR3. Leaning Shorts but we'll see what next week provides.

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.

7-5 right now 4th seed locked. I actually have more points against me than i have for. Which is crazy. the average points against in my 5 losses is 145.6!!!

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

Made it in both leagues. No bye week, no points lead, just two good teams. Not very confident, but a little luck can go a long way.

On the outside looking in- with both my leagues. Probably won't happen this year, so be it.

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.

As of this date I am in 4/4 leagues. Will update in a week when it's official. Until then, not counting any chickens before they're hatched.

9-3

Clinched First round bye.

First year playing!! I was 2-2 when the guy who invited me played head to head. He filled my text message box WITH THE MOST HEINOUS AND HATEFUL ****.

I lost :(.

Then I won nine straight.

Feeeeeeels good.

A little worried about Staff/Eli for playoffs. As well as Charles/Murray. Only playing week 15 and 16.

Locked in at 9-3

Feeling OK about my team; it's been better in reality than on paper. Traded away Brady for Rice once Sproles went down, and continued to 6 straight wins with Luck at the helm. (As a bonus, I get to keep Mr. Luck for next year at the expense of only an 11th round pick. :D Should make those first few rounds a lot easier without having to decide if I'm taking a QB early.

Finally got Antonio Browns jinx off my team, and excited to see what I can pull off with my waiver wire antics. B)

In a 12 team, 2rb, te, 3 wr/te, flex r/w/t league ...

In a must win matchup ...

there is no word to describe the level of bad luck, injuries, and fluke performances from opponents that i've endured in this league. 6-6 fighting for last playoff spot ... win = in.

my bench: harvin, mathews, dmc (3 of top 4 picks)

It's been a really strange year for me. I have just 5 players left that I drafted. I locked up a playoff spot. I'm playing the number 2 seed(I'm number 1). I need to win to remain number 1.

I feel like my team is performing a lot better than the start of the year. Probably because of all the new players lol. I like my chances. Of Mathews and DMC start giving me a little production I REALLY like my chances. My first 3 picks put me behind in the game. DMC, Mathews, and then FITZ.
