Fantasy Football 2013: week 15


Still in one league and still setting the lineup in the other.  With a score of 145 points even, I would have gotten the better of half of the eight playoff teams.  I’m too curious for my own good.

The other league was the answer to week ten…which I dubbed the Rivalry & Redemption series.  I lost, which proves further I paired up with the correct rival.  Last year I defeated this team to win the championship [which I still say I was incredibly lucky in doing so].  It’s only fair I am getting walloped by the team this year.  After this back and forth, I highly anticipate what could be next year.

(details below)

[For the record, my teams are Half Measure and Flippy Flop.]

AZ Devils Gets Victory Against Flippy Flop and Hands Them Fifth Loss in a Row

AZ Devils took down Flippy Flop 174.00 – 156.90 due in part to DeSean Jackson who amassed 24.55 points and Cam Newton who scored 16.95.
