ANNOUNCEMENT - Playoffs, Bracket Predictions
View the spreadsheet with all collected data here. Check your own statlines and let me know if there are any mistakes.
Here are the results of our playoffs, followed by short notes on each matchup:
|9||hatmoza||3-1/34||vs.||4-0/10 (28)||Chris Hu||2||18|
1. noname2200 would have needed a 4-0 record to advance because Shaunodon's HFA got his PDT down to 0, the best possible value.
2. hatmoza had the second-best set of predictions this past weekend, but he had the misfortune of being matched up against the only player who went 4-0.
3. + 4. There wasn't a single matchup that required a tie-breaker. Everything was decided based on record alone.
Here are our semifinals. With only two NFL games to be played, the HFA formula gets a /2 modifier, so these values are now relatively low for the higher seeds.
Procedure is the same as in previous weeks. Chris Hu and I will send our predictions to noname2200.
Bracket Predictions Update
Another few points have been distributed, making the latest standings look like this:
As mentioned last week, Chris Hu has won this contest already.
hatmoza can finish in second place with either a KC Super Bowl win or an elimination of TB in the NFC Championship Game. My chances for second place rest on GB winning the Super Bowl. Shaunodon maintains second place if none of the aforementioned scenarios come true. Worst case scenario for the three players involved here is fourth place.
PAOerfulone can at best remain in fifth place which will happen if KC doesn't win the Super Bowl. Otherwise Angelus gains a spot in the final standings.
sethnintendo requires a KC Super Bowl win to move into seventh place. Farsala has already locked a finish with exactly 35 points.
Rank 9-11 are locked. castor is the only one of the three who can still gain 2 points, but since he is dependent on KC just like sethnintendo, it's not possible to gain a spot anymore.
