Points Question

Postby fantasy fanatic » Sun Oct 05, 2003 7:20 pm

I am winning by four points. I have Brad Johnson left to play, and the other guy has no one. Should I take him out in case he goes backwards?

In situations like this, you always have to be safe.

But your record is the main factor, points are just used for a tie-breaker.

I'm also afraid of what happened to me week one: the guy had Travis Henry, and when they changed that lost fumble to an incomplete pass it lost me the game.

Bench Brad Johnson, be happy with the win, talk smack with your opponent and dont think about the TIE breaker now.
Afterall you are there competing to win it all, arent you. I am.
