We did it, Joe. We made it through the fantasy regular season without the league getting shutdown. Despite several outbreaks and scares, nothing was going to stop Roger from cashing his checks. And here we stand: The playoffs are set, Dennis is still standing, and a new champion will soon be crowned.

Wild Card Round

why

What an exciting first round. In a championship-worthy, heavyweight bout, Ricky and Jacob went down to the wire in what was probably the highest scoring match the league has seen. Unfortunately, 151.28 points weren’t enough for Jacob to prevail. Don’t hear that sentence every day. Luckily for Ricky…


As we enter week 10, we approach the climax of the Fantasy Football season. If there’s a time to go all-in on potential league-winning free agents, make trades, sell high, or buy low, it’s now. Let’s take a look at where our teams sit after 9 weeks of action. The top 6 has started to take shape, but still, only a couple of wins come between the championship and consolation brackets. Sit back and relax as I’ll be giving everyone a scientifically accurate prediction of everyone’s playoff chances based on the world’s most complex algorithm.

Hello everyone, and welcome back to another season of Fantasy Football. Somehow through this all, football is back to provide us an escape from all the madness in the world. Let’s hope it lasts. I’ll do my best to avoid ~real world issues~ in these write-ups, but at some point it is inevitable, so apologies in advance. Let’s get right into a recap of each team and the most exciting events through the first 4 weeks of our fantasy season.

Save me from this hell

This is probably the worst possible matchup that could’ve happened for me as a neutral viewer of the Super Bowl. As a Seattle Seahawks fan, the LA Rams are a division rival that has is looking to cement its place as the new kings of the NFC West and the New England Patriots are the evil empire that ended Seattle’s chance at becoming a true dynasty. I legitimately considered protesting the league this year and not watching, but we all knew that wasn’t going to happen. Alright. Let’s take a look at the teams vying for the crown.

After all the talk about this playoff being anyone’s game and having no clear favorites, we somehow ended up with matchups between the 1 and 2 seed in both conferences. I’m not complaining, I’m sure that these will both be very exciting games, but I was hoping for some lower seeds to run the table. I somehow went 3–1 in my Divisional Round predictions, bringing my playoff record to a nice even 4–4. I’m not sure if I’ve done much to increase my credibility in making these guesses, but I’ll keep it going nonetheless. Onwards!

To no one’s surprise, I was very wrong with my picks. My only correct choice was the Colts over the Texans. So with a 1–3 record thus far, I present to you my Divisional Round picks. It can’t get any worse right?

For 7 months out of every year I agonizingly await the return of the NFL season, and this year the wait seemed excruciatingly long. But for how slow a pace the offseason seemed to move at, the regular season feels like it has come and gone in the blink of an eye. Even so, this season was AWESOME and full of exciting games, headlines, and performances. And now, the playoffs are about to begin and it just felt right to make some bold predictions and show off how terrible I am at analyzing a sport I care way too much…
