Serious question...is fantasy football skill or luck? I was projected to win both my games today. I’m down by like 80 in one game and will lose the second game I’m sure. Robert Woods out due to personal reasons 10 minutes before a Sunday night game....really? Just figured that out?

Pretty sure it’s all luck. At least that’s what I tell myself to feel better about missing the playoffs.

I would say 50-50 skill to luck. You can put yourself in a great position based on drafting, trades, waiver wire claims, and matchup awareness. Unfortunately that’s where our control ends and the actual games have to be played.

Since these have been my first and only fantasy leagues, and I’m doing well, I’ll say 1000% skill.

Serious answer, Since these have been my first and only fantasy leagues, and I’m doing well, I’ll say 1000% luck. 😜

I’m thinking my luck is better than my skill. I was .500 using my crappy auto draft team and I think I’m .100 winning percentage trading guys. Blackngold is a bad influence.

As Bucky said it is about 50-50 between luck and skill.
In another league I’m in, I was projected to win by 40 points cuz the guy never switched his lineup. Unfortunately my QB Watson was outscored by Garrapallo by 32 points and Edelman had more passing touchdowns than Watson. I still have 2 players left but I’m down 60 in a non ppr league.

Well that’s that. Good luck everyone.

You actually won't move in the standings despite going 0-2 if my quick look math is right haha

There is a lot of both involved. You just have to put yourself in the best situation possible and hope for the best. You'll see a trend over the years of who continually makes the playoffs and who doesn't.

And we’ve reached the final week of the regular season. This league is definitely a sprint to the playoffs.  Looks like we’re in for quite a circus of scenarios for playoff seeding.

As a refresher, the top 6 in each division make the playoffs with the top 2 in each receiving first round byes. The top 8 in each still have a chance to make it. The only bye secured is @00sportsman as the #1 seed in Shooter and is the last team with a chance to eclipse the 20-win mark. 

Teams that are currently playoff eligible simply need to win 2 to get in. Due to the matchups, it appears that the 7 and 8 seeds can mostly get in without help by winning 2 themselves. 
 

Key matchups this week:

@Camcmart vs @GolfSpy Stroker both teams have a chance to earn a bye but either could find themselves out of the playoffs with an 0-2 week if the chips fall just right

@revkev vs @GolfSpy Stroker Rev, looking in from the 7 seed needs to win to make playoffs in Shooter and Stroker fighting for position in the congested Stud division. I’m sure both teams would like to see 2 wins awarded in this matchup but there can only be one.

@GolfSpy STUDque vs @GolfSpy MBP besides being 2 staffers, this pair of 7 seeds is making their bid to make the playoffs. Unless a wild set of circumstances occurs, only one can punch a ticket.

@mudfish vs @B.Boston Two teams who have basically wrapped up playoff spots are fighting to earn byes in their respective divisions. 

@Shankster vs @Steve2100 the 5 and 6 seeds in Berg duel it out. There’s scenarios where both teams make the playoffs anyway but I’m sure you’d feel a lot better winning this one.

@GB13 vs @Hackster The winner of this matchup will likely earn themselves a bye in Berg. What serendipity that this match up of titans lines up on the final week of the season.

@00sportsman vs @mudfish 2 of the top 3 teams overall face off in this matchup as they play for bragging rights overall and mudfish bids to earn himself a bye. What a tough final week for mud.

 

 

...... and many more of course. This just outlines how many different things can happen in a deep and tightly contested league. Thanks for a great regular season everyone. 

——————————————————————————
I don’t know if you can say the circus league is heating up, being a circus and all, but there’s about to be some interesting team management as players are reaching the 8-start cap and the playoffs approach. In that league, there’s no trade deadline (including playoffs) but teams lock from moves once eliminated. Top 8 make it and the regular season has 4 more weeks to go.

It's been an interesting season - I feel as if my team under performed the first half but we are coming on - hopeful about sneaking into the playoffs (now that my major bye's are bye, bye, bye) and seeing where we go from there.

Good luck everyone.

It’s been a really fun season. My teams have been very much boom or bust each week, hopefully I Boom this week so I can end up with a bye.. Good luck @Hackster, but I’m gonna win. 😜

It's been a great season, even though I hit a pretty rough patch the last few weeks. I've had a great time playing along with all of you, and thank you for letting me join.

Good luck to those of you who advance to the playoffs. It'll be fun to follow along and see who gets the bragging rights.

Man, the season has flown by.

I know, it’s nothing like the long fantasy golf season. I was just thinking about how to set my team up for a good playoff run, and then I realized that I need a plan to win now, not in 5 weeks!
