Thanks for reading

I fell victim to the most epic comeback of my fantasy football career last week and lost my Super Bowl. After Saturday’s games, CBS Sports gave me a 99.6% chance of winning. Then Le'veon Bell happened, and Steve Smith happened and finally Travis Kelce happened.   Anything can happen in fantasy.

I still outscored every team that week except the team I played. It was a good year, I had fun playing and I hope you did too. If you’re still reading this, you’ve got to be either my mom, wife or in a 17 week league and in the Super Bowl. If you're the latter, thanks for sticking around and I hope to see you again next season.

This year I have had great success streaming a different DST each week. I think I’ll do the same next year. The #NoRb craze that people decided to try this year seemed to fail miserably. This week I would stream the Raiders if I had a game. I am a huge Broncos fan, so it pains me to say that. Let’s face the facts, nothing is going right for the Broncos on the offensive side of the ball. The team is in disarray and Elway will be looking to clean house after the season. Missing the playoffs isn’t acceptable in Denver. Latavius Murray will play ball control and Denver just won’t be able to score.

Week 17 is going to be a crazy week for fantasy players. Which teams will rest starters? Which guys playing for next years contracts will have crazy games? Play all your guys on teams with games that matter….like the Giants and Redskins; whose game has playoff implications. With that said, this is the least confident on rankings I have been all year.

Enjoy your last week. I’ve enjoyed writing this year, hopefully you enjoyed reading.
