What's your fantasy story of the year?

34 posts in this topic

I'm in this 10 person league, same people every year. $ buy in, Champion gets a real size NFL helmet of the team of their choosing. Second place gets a mini helmet of same quality and scale. My team went 5-7-1 and was the 8th place team in an 8 team playoff structure. I have won through 2 rounds and am now in the Championship game. I started the season 0-5. :D

My starters are:

QB:Romo

WR: Fitzgerald

WR2: Nicks

RB: Chris Johnson (killed me)

TE: Jermichael Finley

W/R: Rashard Mendenhall

K: Akers

DEF: Baltimore

D1: D'Qwell Jackson

D2: Derrick Johnson

The D players are heavily weighted. My 2 guys average around 10-13 points per game, with both scoring highly this past weekend.

Because I've won this league before (have the full sized Bears helmet) and gotten 2nd place (mini helmet), whichever way I go (1st or 2nd), I'm getting it as a Vikings helmet and giving it to my best friend (who doesn't play in the league), who is a huge Vikings fan.

Stafford to Megatron took 2 of my teams to the champ game.

My first team made it through fairly injury free, except for Hightower and S. Moss. I also had the great fortune to draft Gronkowski as my backup TE, so Witten's been on my bench a lot.

Team 2 has survived with a mess at RB, especially since McFadden went down, but I was deep at WR (Mega, Jennings, Jordy, and S. Johnson). C.J. Spiller did save my ass in a 151-146 Loyola Marymount special in the semis.

1st league: in the playoffs after going through 4 game losing streak that came AFTER i scored 200 points to set a league record. In that league I was the butt of jokes due to my bad trading from last year (traded away Megatron, Smith, Steven Jackson, AND Greg Jennings at one point). I just took down the guy I made those trades with last week (after I traded him Murray a few weeks ago) and I'm on to the next round.

2nd league: started out 4-2, ended 5-8 and out the playoffs. no idea what happened.

3rd league: it shall not be mentioned again. team is terrible

Every player that I drafted missed at least two games, four of them went to IR but I was able to just barely slide into the playoffs. I made it to the superbowl and we ended up with a tie so it went to tie breaker rules and those are very simple, the team with the better regular season record wins. After all the work building my team up from all the injuries I lose like that.

    • Could be. Hope to be.  I see the big time potential in both. In my opinion-The biggest obstical I see (not only with them but in many young players) is their self confidence. Taking it from "flashing" to "breaking out" or "to the next level" is an imaginary obstacle that stands in the way of a lot of players with potential. To get over the hump, it can take a play, a game or a season to get their mind right with the confidence that they can perform at another level.  KB and Funch have good coaching and all the skills necessary to be the guy, but in the end, they are human too. Most won't admit but the majority of people perform in a "fake it till you make it" environment so to speak.   Lack of confidence or conversely, proving to yourself you can do it, is not only important to the average Joe like you and I but to them as well.  Some guys get over the hump and exceed their own expectations enough to where it becomes standard practice. Others never quite get that bit of confidence or courage to take it one step above their self imposed ceiling.  Im optimistic so I think these two guys can break through. We will certainly have a good read on their direction this season.  PS- Did I use enough quotations?
