    My FF regular season ends after week 13. My league has the playoffs during weeks 14-16. In my 12-team league, 6 make the playoffs. The top two seeds get a bye in week 14.

    I'm the #3 seed at 10-3.

    The #1 seed should finish at 12-1 (I say "should" because he's behind right now, but has Brady and Moss going tonight...no wonder he's 11-1).

    The #2 seed is also 10-3, but I lost the tiebreaker head-to-head against him the day his ADP ran for almost 300yds and 3 TDs vs. San Diego.

    Damn, that bye would have been nice. Anyway, looking forward to defending my title.

    Who else has made their FF playoffs?

    Regards,
    Chris

    I'm the #1 seed at 11-2. I expect to win my week 14 game to go in 12-2. :)

    I'll update the current standings and the playoff picture in the league thread.

    I love my runningbacks, and the sweet thing is that I picked up two of them from free agency!

    #1 Brian Westbrook
    #2 Earnest Graham
    #3 (Flex) Justin Fargas

    There's a disappointing lack of bragging in this thread.

    Anyone onto their semifinals in week 15...like me?

    Nothing is "official" until Monday night is over. So there will probably be more posts tomorrow. I will update how the playoffs went in my league thread as well.

    This #3 seed knocked off the #2 seed in the semifinals and is onto the title game with the #4 seed. This just happens to be a rematch of the title game last year. I'm hoping to defend my title. If I lose, I'll be the Oakland A's of the late 80s, early 90s (3 straight title appearances, one title sandwiched by two losses).

    The #1 seed was undone vs. the #4 seed thanks to Tom Brady's and Randy Moss' quiet Jets game.

    Lucky you. Yup I'm also in the finals in my league. The matchups are pretty close. I am hoping that Kevin Curtis and (gulp) Kolby Smith can produce for me. Fargas went down with a knee injury, that sucked, and Evans has not been a good play lately.

    My title game matchup:

    QB:............Favre (me) vs. Romo (opponent)
    RB:............Westbrook vs. Tomlinson
    WR:...........Wayne vs. Andre Johnson
    TE:............Marcedes Lewis vs. Vernon Davis
    RB/WR/TE:..Jones-Drew vs. Fred Taylor
    RB/WR/TE:..TJ Housh vs. Welker
    WR/TE:.......Colston vs. Anthony Gonzalez
    K:..............Longwell vs. Josh Brown
    IDP:...........Witherspoon vs. Fletcher
    IDP:...........DeMarcus Ware vs. Ulracher
    IDP:...........Kerney vs. Tatupu

    I'm pretty much set with my lineup and I think my opponent is, too. We have a few options on our bench, but I don't see anything changing.

    The battle of the Jacksonville RBs should be interesting. Both are up against an awful Raiders run D that's looked horrible on the road. Fred may rack up 1st-half stats, but MJD may beat those in the 2nd half. We each have an Indy WR as well. The thing that scares me the most is LT at home vs. the porous Denver run D and San Diego battling Pittsburgh for the #3 seed, so LT will probably get the bulk of the carries. If TJ Housh bounces back at home vs. a Cleveland team he and Palmer torched earlier this year, I'm in great shape. Favre is on the road as is Romo, but Favre is up against a team he faces regularly while sore-thumbed Romo is facing Carolina who shut down Seattle so I'm hoping Favre doesn't let me down.

    Regards,
    Chris

    I am in the playoffs in 2 different leagues (patsfan and a sox board)


    Last week was tight on me because I had Brady and he put up 0 for me, but I pulled it out. This week could be tough as well because both leagues have Brady and the weather isn't looking good.

    I think your patsfans league team is in good shape. I'm not so sure about your sox board team (facing *both* Westbrook and Tomlinson?).

    Good luck, especially with playing against LT in one league and playing with him in the other.

    Chris

    Ya going to be an interesting week. I care a little more about the sox board league, because there is a little more than 'bragging rights' on the line:D We'll see what happens!
