So I'm in last place in my fantasy league, and the best that I can hope for is to finish second to last. In a funny twist of fate, I'm playing the current second to last place team this week, and since we're both basically have no chances to win money or even prestige, we decided to make our own little side bet. This week we are only going to start our Kickers (lame, I know, but our seasons our over so we wanted to make things interesting), and the loser of this matchup will have to pay 1/2 of the winner's entry fee into the league. The loser of this game will also probably have 1st draft pick in our keeper league next year, and this is where there seems to be a bit of a problem.
Another team in the cellar with us is angry that we're basically throwing in the towel and now starting only Kickers. Since the final standings could be decided by points, we're setting ourselves up to get only a few points, allowing one of us to probably snake the first draft pick next year. The third, angry party, who is also in the running for that draft pick is kind of upset about this, because even if he loses, with a full team he's going to get more points than either of us and be out of the running for next year's first draft pick.
So what do you guys think? We're going ahead with it regardless of opinions, but I wanted to hear reactions (even from the guys who are going to rip on us and tell us that we're not serious fantasy players). We're in last place and this is pretty much our last chance (until next year) to have some fun in the league. Thanks.
