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!

He's the creator and developer of this site and has played in many fantasy football leagues over the last 15 years. He's been a life-long Cincinnati Bengals fan and wishes the team performed as well in the playoffs as his fantasy teams.

Week 8 was a strange animal, kind of like what you'd get if your dog went out and got too friendly with a cat and the progeny somehow got infected with that unknown life form that lives and breathe under the fridge in your kitchen (anyone who's a bachelor knows what I'm talking about). If the season up to now could be described as a cakewalk for my two powerhouse teams, this week it was more akin to a pineapple upside-down cake. My Übermannschaften both suffered devastating losses, while both of my craptastic teams somehow managed to pull off upsets. Oh well, as they say C' la vie and I'm actually okay with the result. Anything can happen come playoff time: players on good teams are often rested prior to the NFL playoffs so fantasy scoring can be wild and unpredictable. Personally, I'd rather have four mediocre teams in the playoffs than two powerhouse teams any day.

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.
