This should be the Todd Gurley victory thread. 

As dominant as TG was in 2 out of 3 very competitive leagues I was in the Gurley owner missed the playoffs. 

 

I'm sure the majority of teams reaching the champions rd had the Fantasy Football MVP on their roster. Seemed to be a low scoring week 16 so having King Kong Gurley was like having Le'Veon last year in playoffs.

 

Congrats to all that came out of this season as Champs.

10-Team 0.5 PPR

 

"My Ewok Beat His Gurley"

(9-4) #1 Seed

 

Top 5 picks:

 

1.3 Antonio Brown

2.8 Todd Gurley

3.3 Ezekiel Elliot

4.8 Demaryius Thomas

5.3 Kareem Hunt

 

Championship Week Starting Lineup:

 

QB: Rivers

RB: Gurley

RB: Zeke

WR: Demaryius

WR: Wallace

TE: Graham

Flex: Hunt

D/ST: Ravens

K: Tucker

IR: Antonio Brown ❤️

 

Also had Deshaun Watson... this is probably the best team I've ever had.

 

Wow.....what a team. Congrats on your great drafting.  Having to face Gurley, Zeke, Brown, Hunt, and then you picked up Watson.....wow....

 

i had Zeke, Hunt and also picked up Watson.......but unlike you, no Gurley or Brown. 

 

By the way, it looks like picking third was good for you.  To be fair to me, I was picking 9th.  No way I could have gotten Brown, but Gurley was there at both 1:9 and 2:2.  Darn.....how much easier my Championship could have been if I took him over Zeke.

Your win in your fun league is impressive because you don’t really have any pre draft studs...Hopkins being closest to a stud, if not one.

Besides his performance, I think most people in 10 teams got him in the second round. What a steal.

Beat the Gurley owner last week by over 30 points in a non PPR. Suck it. 

I beat the Gurley owner last week also in one league but in my other I lost to a Gurley owner. I’d bet over 50% of champs had him.

16 team auction

0.5 ppr

made 4-5 trades

() = what I drafted $ value on $200 budget

 

qb- rivers ($8)

wr- Julio (via dalvin cook trade)

wr- diggs (via TY Hilton trade)

rb- gurley ($40)

rb- mccoy (via Doug martin/ t Coleman)

flex- DT (via Jeffery trade)

te- olsen (waiver)

k- lutz (waiver week 2)

dont have team defenses, play 2 IDP

 

cameron brate ($4) was a great value for my team and did very well until the end. 

Only 2 players that I originally drafted. 

 

Got lucky trading d cook for Julio after week 1 because I had rb depth with Martin and Coleman. Then mid season traded martin and Coleman for mccoy and Crowell

Drafted 3rd overall in a 10-Team 0.5 pt PPR. Drafted OBJ with that pick and passed on Brown (Giants bias and the fact I've never owned him before). Needless to say when he went down I was super angry I didn't draft Brown like I should have. But alas I traded Gronk for Alshon Jeffrey and Brandin Cooks and had Brate for a while to keep me afloat at the TE position before I picked up Delanie Walker off FA. 

 

QB: Cam Newton 

WR: Larry Fitzgerald 

WR: Brandin Cooks 

WR: Alshon Jeffrey 

RB: Leonard Fournette 

RB: Mark Ingram 

TE: Delanie Walker

FLEX: Davante Adams for much of the year but Keelan Cole for 'ship.  

K: Greg Zuerlein for most of year but Forbath for ship. 

DEF: Streamed for most of year but BAL for ship.

9-4 record regular season

 

Had 9th pick went M evans who I turned into M Thomas and eventually AJ Green. Gurley was 2nd rounder and main reason Im winning. Got Hopkins for Gronk and then Ertz/Wentz for Brees/Walker. Steal was Bell during his bye week to a desperate owner for A Jones, D Thomas, Lynch and Keuchly (got him back for Maclin later)

 

Best pickup would be rivers at thanksgiving cause I lost Wentz and he was great every since (minus last week). Collins or Agholor would be a close 2nd, neither was an everyweek starters for me and both had down weeks but they also had huge games that helped

M. Gordon

A. Brown

D. Hopkins

K. Allen

E. Engram

Notables on bench-M Thomas, Mark Ingram, J. Graham

Whole draft was great for me, but got Hunt in mid rounds, so he takes the cake for best pick.

 

12 team ppr free keeper league(keep any ten) 8th year, my 4th Championship.

A. Smith

M. Gordon.

A. Kamara

D. Hopkins

M. Thomas

Kamara was obviously my best draft pick in 5th round, but traded Julio and Cam for Hopkins and Gordon before start of season. I feel that was my best move.

 

Congrats to all that won their finals.

Last game going on right now for one of my teams and my biggest money league. Won a few, lost a few, didn't even make playoffs in two. Either way, this is probably one of my best seasons as far as wins are concerned and I owe a lot of it to two common players among most of my rosters, Larry Fitzgerald and Alvin Kamara.

For the past 20 years I only play in 1-2 leagues per year .  I tried 3 leagues one year but I hated it because it took the fun out of watching the games on Sunday because I would be cheering for players on one team and they would be against me in another league.  In the league I have been in for 20 years I have only won once like 15 years ago and have lost like 3 times in the championship since then.  My other league has been around for 10 years and I have won 3 (2 straight 2012 & 2013) in the past six years. My main point is if you won any of your leagues enjoy it because it is really F'N hard to win.  Here is my winning team this year:

 

12 Team Standard Scoring

 

QB:  Bortles (Watson helped me win 6 straight and the points tiebreaker for 2nd place and a bye)

RB:  Bell

RB: Zeke (D.. Lewis filled in nicely for his suspension although the 29 points on my bench almost cost me the ship)

WR: Funchess

WR: Goodwin

WR: Cole (pickup of the week and one of the reasons I barely won the ship!)

FLEX:  Kamara (Steal of the draft! Drafted him in the 12th round because I read a couple of rave reviews about him)

TE:  Olsen (Rode Graham all year but switched him out for the ship and it almost cost me as well)

K: Dawson (Had Greg the Leg all year and missed the news the night he went on IR so my opponent picked up Gould and Ficken to block me but didnt work for him)

DEF:  Steelers ( Made a last minute switch from Saints D and they are one of the big reasons I barely won the ship)

Great teams champs!

 

I did a quick glance and it seems most of the winners had a solid RB cast (I had Gordon/Zeke, picked up Ingram/Zeke from FA). I won 3 years in a row with a solid solid RB cast

 

hint hint for 2018!

Ehhhhhh babayyyy. Put up 157.48 points to win it all! From week 10 I won out, never putting up less than 140 points. Statistically, this is the best team I have ever had, averaging just over 140 points per week, which is pretty damn good if you ask me. I finished the regular season in 1st place at 9-4, with almost 200 more points than the next closest guy. It was a 10 team, 1pt ppr league. I was the 9th pick and made a few trades to get the lineup I had. My team looked like this until the Antonio Brown injury:

 

 

QB- Blake Bortles, Case Keenum, Deshaun Watson (untill he got hurt)

WR- Antonio Brown

WR- Keenan Allen

RB- Todd Gurley

RB- Mark Ingram

TE- Evan Engram

Flex- Jay Ajayi/Robby Anderson/Dede Westbrook

K- Harrison Butker

Def- Streamed (used Chicago in championship)

 

For the championship I had to replace Antonio Brown with Mike Wallace, played Blake Bortles over Case Keenum, and flexed Dede Westbrook for the Bortles/Westbrook stack which almost worked to perfection. Either way, I won, and at the beginning of the year I vowed to finally give up fantasy and never play again as me and the wife had a baby boy this year and it just takes up so much time and effort. It's bittersweet for sure, but it feels great to go out on top.

 

Congrats to everyone else that won their league, and hopefully you have continued success. Peace boys!!

The Jaggernaut  2017 Champ!

 

16 team dynasty league.  PPR.  1qb, 2rb, 2wr, 1 rb/wr, 1te, D, K

9-4 with a couple very slim losses 

1734 points, lead 15 of 15 teams by > 100 pts, 14 of 15 by >200, 9 of 15 by > 300, 4 of 15 by > 400.  

had 3 highest scoring weeks and 7 of top 15 highest scoring weeks (7 weeks over 148 points) 

 

I did a total teardown of my team from last year, effectively liquidating everything into draft picks and young running backs.  

 

LFCO7Kv.png

 

best draft pick: Kamara 

best waiver pick up: Collins (week 2), but hopefully Keelan Cole (week 13)

 

I was one of the people who lost on the play at end of KC vs Washington game

https://www.sbnation.com/nfl/2017/10/2/16407280/chiefs-washington-point-spread-2017

 

I ended up rematching against that guy round one of the playoffs and annihilated him in a payback game

Josh Gordon proved to be a good luck charm again despite doing nada in the championship game!  I wasn't going to bench him.  I went in as the 4th seed (out of 4) against some pretty strong teams and Gurley carried me to a championship.  

 

12 Team PPR - Final Championship Lineup:

QB - Ben Roethlisberger (I drafted Winston but someone cut Big Ben after his mediocre start)
RB - Todd Gurley, Kenyan Drake, Joe Mixon, Lamar Miller, Mike Davis

WR - Julio JonesJosh Gordon, Dede Westbrook (FLEX), Mike Wallace, Kennan Cole
TE - Kyle Rudolph, Eric Ebron
DEF - NE Patriots

K - Jake Elliott
