This was my opponent. After it was all said and done, he scored 171 points. This is probably the greatest fantasy day I have ever seen. I scored 120 points and thought I had a great day, but i still lost by 51. And we scored by far the most points in the league; nobody else was over 87.

His team:

QB- Bulger (22 points)
WR- S. Moss (31 points)
WR- Terry Glenn (19 points)
WR- Eddie Kennison (14 points)
RB- Larry Johnson (26 points)
RB- Willis McGahee (14 points)
TE- Todd Heap (12 points)

K- Jeff Wilkins (18 points)

Def- Dallas (15 points)

heap with the lowest total at 12...

I believe it because I've seen the same thing happen countless times. It's just bad luck and frustrating because you would've beaten every other team in the league. I've seen the team that scores the most overall points in the entire league miss the playoffs because they just happen to play every owner the week that owner has their best day. Totally sucks but it happens more often than you think.

Thanks to deluxe_247 for the awesome sig!

It happens all the time, which is why I have this annual argument with the guys in my league that we have to change the financial payouts--they're too heavily weighted on W/L record, which are totally skewed by flukes. There's no defense in Fantasy football! Sure, the head to head matchups make for a lot of excitement, but leagues should really split the pot as follows: 50-60% based on head to head records with playoffs, championsip, etc, and 40-50% based on most points during the regular season (13 weeks). Although I've showed the stats and mad the argument to my league mates multiple times through the yrs they refuse to budge, so we're stuck with an 85/15 split favoring head to head. Thus last yr I was 2nd in points and wound up losing about $400, while a "lesser" team won "the championship" and about a grand net. Ludicrous!

The other 0-3 team in my league still has LJ Smith waiting to play and has 163 pts so far.

I just won my first game, by 1 point.

Which of course means that I'm waiting for some imminent correction to take the game away from me.
