Doesn't suck at all. Playoffs with 5 out of 6 teams. Championship game with 4 teams. 2 wins.

I'm SO glad that I don't have to play one more game with half my players possibly sitting out in week 17. That's what sucks.



Oh yeah, my must suck comment wasn't meant as a "you suck at fantasy football" comment but a "it must suck to not play cause your league is over" comment.


I didn't take that comment the wrong way. We'll just have to agree to disagree about playing fantasy football in week 17. I think its challenging enough to build a team and then to try and decide who to start/sit every week. I think it would really suck to be playing in week 17, have half your players sit, & then lose to a team who doesn't have anyone sit. 16 weeks worth of work down the drain just because you have the best players on the best teams that end up not playing in week 17 because their games don't matter. You're getting penalized in week 17 for building the best team. Doesn't make any sense to me. Weeks 1-16 are challenging enough.

PS: About your "it must suck to not play cause your league is over" comment, you can obviously see that I'm glad that I'm not playing in week 17. That's why I said it doesn't suck at all.

I just don't think it would be fun to build a team for 16 weeks only to have to pickup scrubs off the WW to fill in for my studs in week 17. Why should I get penalized for building the best team? Most leagues have their Super Bowl in week 16 for this exact reason so it's not just me who feels this way.

Our playoffs are 2 weeks for each game. You know this going in. Planning for the end of the season is part of the strategy. I understand not everyone likes it. I have to go 8 months without playing fantasy football...I would hate to miss even that 1 more week. ;-D

I understand and respect your opinion. Like I said before we just have to agree to disagree.

What do you mean that your playoffs are 2 weeks for each game?

Regular season is 13 weeks long. Weeks 14 and 15 are the first round of the playoffs. Weeks 16 and 17 is the Super Bowl. Whoever wins over the 2 weeks deserves it and didn't just get lucky. Works well I think. ;-D

That's interesting. Never heard of that type of playoff structure. So 4 teams make the playoffs, with each round being 2 weeks long? How many teams in the league?

I'm playing in our championship this week. Our league has always been a wk 17 champ league. Having players sit is no different than injuries and byes. In fact, some of the top players were sat in week 16! Manning, Harrison, SA was sat down early, etc...

Doesn't matter what week, you need to be on top of things and deep to win in FF. If you can't handle a week 17 game, you aren't much of a fantasy player IMO.
