After yesterday's late Sunday games I didn't think this could be close. You had three players left, but I led by ~65 points. And your three players included a TE and a K, so not exactly high-scoring positions. But Hauschka had a field day against the Panthers (16 fantasy points) and now the Colts don't even think about running the ball because the Jets pass defense sucks that bad. Luck is already closing in on 30 points and there's still plenty of time left. Had Doyle made that TD before the half, you'd be only 7 points behind now. But even with a 19-point-lead, I don't feel comfortable. Like I said, the Colts don't run the ball and the Jets defense is abysmal; and their offense can barely move the ball, so the Colts have plenty of opportunities to pile up fantasy and real points.

Well at least Luck made our match interesting, now my chances of making it to the playoffs are not looking very good.

ANNOUNCEMENT - Week 13 Results and Standings

Another great week for the prediction league. All 27 remaining players attained a positive record, with 22 of them being 10-5 or better. The top spot went to three people who were close enough to the league's leader to still have realistic chances to win the entire thing. Second place is occupied by two guys who still have to fight for a playoff berth. Also noteworthy, the top 3 of last week's standings all failed to get into the top 3 of this week's results.

FatedReality is still up by two games despite a bad week, but he has more fierce competition now. The top 6 are within four games with four weeks left to go, rank 7-13 are eyeing for a top 10 finish as their minimum goal, and rank 14-23 compete for a postseason appearance. Regardless of this breakdown, the gaps between these three groups are still small enough for people to find themselves in another one within only one or two weeks. This week's biggest winners in terms of positions were Chris Hu and MTZehvor who moved up five spots in tandem (from #10 and #11 to #5 and #6); the biggest losers were cycycychris (down 5, from #6 to #11) and castor (down 5, from #15 to #20).

View all standings here. Check your own statlines and let me know if there are any mistakes.

Looking ahead to week 14, it provides a challenging slate of games. Many of them have serious playoff implications and/or are divisional matchups. Good luck, because we'll need it.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Thankfully the Colts remembered that the ball can be run. You needed Doyle to score at least two TDs tonight, but he fell way short. Anyway, it was much closer than I expected it to be.

I had the best score of the entire league this week, by 0.06 points. If Hilton had gained only one additional yard, I would have been screwed.

I wished the fantasy league could provide playoff scenarios, because I have no idea which kind of tie-breakers you need. A win of yours and a loss of Angelus might not even be enough, depending on who else gets to 6-8 next week. You should offer Arkaign a generous trade for Elliott in exchange for giving the week 14 game away.

So aside from the people who missed entire weeks, I am in last place.

On a positive note, I am only 4 games from playoffs, so a lot of other people are close to being as terrible as me this year.
