What's your greatest comeback story in fantasy football.

Postby Azrael » Thu Dec 04, 2003 7:59 pm

This doesn't have to be about you. 2 years ago there was a guy in one of my leagues that started out 2-4 and won 9 in a row to win the championship.

My first year in a fantasy league I started out 0-6 and finished 5-6-2, just missing the playoffs by my chinny chin chin. That year I had Faulk when he broke out for the Rams and picked up this Kurt Warner guy after Vinny Testeverde and Stoney Case got injured for me. Everyone was pretty happy I didn't make the playoffs.

In the league I'm commishing this year, there is a guy who started out 2-6 and had renamed his team "Bye Week". Since then he's won 5 in a row and is playing the 4th place team with the same record for the last playoff spot. For the last 3 weeks he's had to win and needed that team to lose to stay in the hunt.

I've got a guy in my league right now that started 2-4 and has won 7 in a row! He has gone from tied for last to 2nd place. I hope I can beat him IF I get to the playoffs. At 8-5, I just need to win one of the next two games to make it. Got my fingers crossed!
That's my two cents and it's worth every penny of it!

I started like 1-6 or 1-7 and came back to win like the rest of my games and I think I got 2nd place losing in the championship. This year I started 1-4-1 and now am 7-5-1. It looks like I will be in the playoffs.

this isnt a season long thing, but last year i was down 99-33 going into monday night with favre, driver, bubba, and longwell to play. they were playing the bears and they all put up huge numbers and i won the game 100-99. also this isnt really a big comeback thing but i started 0-2 last year and came back and won 14 of my next 15 to finish tied for first (no playoffs) but i lost on points.

I took out the #1 ranked player.

I was losing on sunday by about 5 pts and he still had a kicker and a WR left for monday.

He started to brag and talk smack on the board about how I was just another bump in the road for him and he's still rolling undefeated and no one can stop him.

Monday comes, his players did ok.

However, when the final score came up on tuesday. I had won by 1.5 points.

This wasn't a season comeback, but a single game comeback.

It was a couple of years ago, I was down bigtime after the Sunday games. I need two TD's and 100 yds to win. My main RB was on a bye so I was forced to start Stephen Davis when Terry Allen was the starter. I drove up to DC for the Skins - Cowboys game on Monday night. Well, sure enough Allen goes down with an injury in the first series and Davis come in and socre 2 TD's and runs for over 100 yards!
