After a ridiculous come from behind victory vs the mighty Roglaroon Raiders, the Tegel Shrews advance to the Luddite championship for the third year in a row. Can they three-peat?  The Dharmaniacs will be in their way, and once again the Shrews will be the underdog.  The Shrews all season have been, well, lucky, winning at least two games with the lowest winning score in the league that week, and surviving many injuries to key players to somehow keep rolling to a 10-4 record.  The Dharmaniacs barely slipped into the playoffs with an 8-6 record but managed to get past the #1 seed Purple Dragons to make the finals.

Rolling with Alex Smith at QB (with that punk-ass Aaron Rogers nursing a sore pair of milking teats, poor baby), the Shrews have benefitted from a career day this past Sunday from Smith for their come from behind victory, but Smith has been strong the past few weeks (#3 in the league the last four weeks of the season).  The Dharmaniacs have advanced to the finals with the surprising Phillip Rivers at QB, who is now ranked the #4 scoring QB in the league  Both teams have great WR corps (Bryant and Gordon for the Shrews, Johnson and Jeffreys for the Dharmaniacs) with more average RBs (Bush and Gore for the Shrews, Johnson and Rice for the Dharmaniacs).  Both teams have some good matchups coming into the final game, but the tipping point may be at Defense, where the Dharmaniacs boast the Seahawks (#2 in the league) and the Shrews are betting on the clown-car that is the NY Giants offense to hopefully cough up points to the newly acquired Lions Def this weekend, some might say it's a desperate gamble but the Shrews are counting on Mr. Interception (aka Eli Manning) to supply the points and hopefully make up for the Seahawks superior play.  Should be a great championship game!

No kidding it's going to be who sucks less!!!!  

Hoping for enough pts from Frank Gore and Dawson score more than Vernon Davis....good luck!

What awful totals.......our QBs (Alex Smith---7 pts, Philip Rivers---12 pts), our "studs" (WR Calvin Johnson 7 pts, RB Reggie Bush 5 pts), no player on either team scored over 19 pts yesterday.  A team of Grandmothers would have trounced either of us...good thing we were playing each other!!!

The Tegel Shrews are in for the Three-peat as champions in the Luddite League as they defeat the Dharmaniacs in a very, very lackluster 108-84 championship game.  No one player scored over 19 pts, and several top players turned in sludgey performances as it was a race to see who would score 100 pts in a league where the team average is about 130 a week.  Some top players who massively underperformed for the Dharmaniacs leading to a defeat:  QB Phillip Rivers 12.10 pts (201 yds passing, 1 td, 1 int, 1 fumble), WR Calvin Johnson 7 pts (3 catches for 43 yds), RB Ray Rice 8 pts (40 yds rushing, 2 rcpts for 23 yds) and TE Vernon Davis (zero pts).  Luckily my team barely outplayed his although QB Alex Smith (7 pts on 153 yds, 2 ints, 1 fumble) and Reggie Bush (5 pts on 34 yds rushing, 2 rcpts for 10 yds) gave me tough moments.  Ironically the chronically underperforming Frank Gore gave me enough pts in the Monday night game (16 pts on 97 yds, 1 rcpt and a TD) to overcome a slight deficit to win.  Luckily these two teams played each other because it was close only due to lousy play...any 30-40 pt game by a player would have been an immediate knock-out.  

I can say without a doubt the Shrews were lucky this year.  The last two years I felt I had a monster lineup led by Aaron Rodgers at QB, this year I simply got lucky throughout the regular season and playoffs by often playing the only other team besides myself to have an off-week.  This was NOT a very good team and became even worse when Rodgers went out (burying the Packers chances and almost mine).  Best pickup of the year by far was Josh Gordon at WR.  Four games over 30 pts in a season where he only played 11 regular fantasy games is pretty amazing, including a stretch of 48/53/31 pt games that pushed me over the top in the last weeks of the season.  Josh ended up being the #1 WR in the league by 1 pt over Calvin Johnson, and is holdover material for next season.  #2 best player was TE Julius Thomas, not on a lot of radars before the season but he benefitted from Peyton Manning's record setting year by becoming the #3 TE in Fantasy...and that's with missing two games due to injury. No question these two pretty much saved my season!

Thanks for everyone in the league for another great year.  In all the leagues I participate in this is one of the most astute and competetive, only the face to face league I have been running for 20 years has more savvy fantasy players so it's a real accomplishment to win in the Luddite league.  Thanks everyone and see you next year!

Renewed the Luddite league today, if you were in last year you will soon get your renewal emails.  As a holdover league, you can hold ONE player on your roster over (in lieu of your first round draft pick).  Choose wisely!  Looking at my roster, I cannot believe I won the championship with this group of mopes.  Aaron Rodgers was my holdover the last three years (with three titles for the Tegel Shrews, baby!) but crapped out last year, Alex Smith (?) won it all for me.  Don't know if Aaron Rodgers is on the holdover list again.....we'll see. Dez Bryant or Josh Gordon (isn't he suspended again?) may take up the mantle of Tegel Shrew legacy.

I'll let everyone know when I'll set the date and time of the draft, and if we have any spots available!  Good Luck!!!

Well, yahoo gave me a "B" for my draft tonight.  I did mess up in the quarterback department.  The Acaeum Collector's league will draft on August 30th, and so far we have only four teams, so hope a few more folks will sign up.  Avurax - can you post the relevant info for joining?

LOL....I forgot to draft today.  Whoops.  Hope my entirely new team of Shrews will be up for the four-peat!!! I apologize for not noticing the draft day auto-set, I hate to draft this early and two teams from last year didn't renew in time.  Sorry for not taking care of business (checking my Yahoo mail for five days) but oh well.  Plenty of drops and pickups on the way for the Shrews it looks like!!!!

Yes, if you want to play fantasy football, even if you know squat about fantasy football, please join the Acaeum Collector's League.  It is more low-key and less cut throat than the Luddite League. We have 4-6 spots available. I can send you an evite (Blake has given me access) and if you want the computer will auto draft you.  Just post here or PM me if you want to join!!! Or follow this link:

Still need at least two more teams for the Acaeum Collector's League!  Draft is in 9 days so plenty of time, and if you don't want to draft the computer will take care of it for you.  We have six teams and need at least eight!

Thanks for the smack talk sir!  As of today we have eight teams in the Acaeum Collector's League, so we are set even if we don't get anymore teams to join.

Yahoo graded my draft a B. I was 6th out of 8 in the lineup, and drafting on my phone in a restaurant with wifi (not much Internet service in the piney woods of the Florida panhandle). So I am happy with my team. Can always tell who is auto drafting when kickers and defense are selected in the 8th or 9th round. Looking forward to the season.

I was actually ready to go 1/2 hour prior to start, but the Wife had other plans....

Even so Autodrafter took over and took my kickers and defenses long before I ever would have.
Yahoo "Experts" gave my roster a rating of B for the draft.
One would think that is Not a bad thing..... but I know better.

Last season in one of those cheap money Yahoo public leagues I drafted on Yahoo myself and got a D- rating for my draft.
The "Experts" stated that my team would finish 1-13 in last place.
That team actually finished 13-1 (first overall) and lost by 2 points in the championship game.
That is why they play the games and Experts are not always right.

The "Experts" BS is simply a numerical number generated based on pre-season predictions. Chimps picking numbers out of a hat could do a better job of rating a draft.

What the heck, I also started a survival football league.  Last year I got first place in my league of 50!  The league ID is 21341 and the password is "chariot". Give it a shot! You don't have to be a stat genius or anything, you choose the winner of one NFL game a week, the catch is you can only choose each team ONCE to win during the year...No picking Denver or Seattle each week.  It gets fun at the end of the year when you are down to picking either the Browns, Jaguars or Cowboys to have to win a game just to keep your streak going.
