How Our Fantasy Teams Performed

By Matt Brandon and Greg Buch
This is a blog we started back in Week 5 of the season, as we thought it would be fun to illustrate to fans of our site the trials and tribulations we go through with our own fantasy teams. Yes, just like you, we play fantasy football ourselves and have about 30 years of experience between the two of us. If you'd like to experience first-hand how our seasons have unfolded just start with Week 5 on our webpage and go from there. Hopefully, you'll learn from our mistakes and our successes!

If you read our Week 5 blog, you know my Bengalized team plays in a standard IDP league that has a crazy, inflated point system that often results in teams scoring as many as 300 or 400 points a game.

Week 12 continued to provide favorable favorable tailwinds that swept each of my four squads closer to the fantasy playoffs. Three of them won their games easily and the outcomes were already decided before the Sunday Night game kicked off but one of my weaker teams was locked in a battle for 2nd place in the league. I held a tenuous 40 point lead in that one but my opponent still had Forsett and Ingram left to play, while all I had was Ravens kicker Justin Tucker. When I checked the scoreboard after work, I was delighted to see that I had squeeked out a victory by the slimmest of margins - 0.9 fantasy points! This week's victories bumped just one of my teams up in the standings but did improve my Fantasy Coach of the Year ranking on I'm now up to 98% and I'm really not sure what that means, only that if I move up to 100 by the end of the season, I think I'm in line for a prize of some sort (probably just a really lame T-shirt).
