Confused about Playoffs

Postby Lukbuster » Fri Oct 19, 2007 11:58 pm

It looks like my team will make playoffs (Week 15 & 16).

Do I have to worry about a team earning a bye?
Do teams who know they are not making the playoffs play worse? (Like in the NBA)

Is there is any trading I should do to prepair? (Should I look to trade for players from teams who have potential to win their division/conference?) (NE, IND, TB, DAL, GB, PIT, JAC, NYG)

---------
My Team:
QB: Tony Romo > Brian Griese> Marc Bulger
RB: Gore > Bush > Michael Bennett
WR: Boldin > Plaxico > Calvin Johnson > Brandon Marshall > Stallworth
TE: Antonio Gates
K: Matt Stover
DST: NE

Doesn't matter what teams your players are on. Might be best to avoid great teams, as once they clinch they tend to sit their best players.

Week 15 and 16 are fantasy playoffs, not actual NFL playoffs.

They don't typically play worse. Every win in the NFL counts for more dollars for the owners in future revenues, so you don't usually see teams tank it.

It is too early to think about that as a legit option until u see how the season plays out. Right now it looks like Romo or Plaxico might be your only worries if they will play in Week 16 of the NFL season (and therefore in the championship game).
