It’s hard to believe the regular football season is almost over. In my fantasy football league, for some teams (like my husband’s) it already is. This is week 14 of the regular NFL season and Sunday marks the start of the playoffs in our league.
This is only my second year of playing fantasy football and I keep asking myself why it took me so long to start. I’ve seriously been missing out. I love football regardless but the competitive part of me is even more motivated to watch all of the games since my livelihood in the league depends on it.
Last year I entered the playoffs in 6th place of 12th and ended up finishing strong in 3rd place which is also a money spot. This year our league upped the buy in so I’m hoping I can follow suit again this year as I’m in exactly the same place as I was last year going into the playoffs. I was convinced when drafting my team that I was choosing such strong players and had devised a draft strategy that I thought would stack the odds in my favor. Unfortunately, some players lose their touch, others are forsaken for newer blood, and still others are effected by injury after injury (I’m talking about you Michael Vick).
