We're 1 week away from the playoffs so wanted to post updates for everyone.

Congratulations to Carnivale and Michael's Team on securing playoff spots! This week will only have an effect seeding for them.

Competing for the other 2 spots we have: Not Chad, Mcgoo2's Crew, C & M Collectibles, Nikki's revenge, Nate's Nifty Team, and an outside shot by MF39 Ballin Raiders.

A very tight race among them, this will likely come down to points. Last week was an interesting one as everyone currently 7-6 and in the hunt actually didn't manage a win among the group so it should be a nail-bitter this week. Not Chad did and right now has the edge by not just record but also points so will likely take a spot.

The prize pool for those who need reminding and a push to try and make it:

1st place: $400
2nd place: $325
3rd place: $175

Good luck to all of you!

For those not competing I won't lock any teams but I would prefer you don't use waivers on any big acquisitions and kind of wait to the last minute to fill your roster spots from here on out. Feel free to make non-interfering moves though, know a lot of people hate finishing last and care about their record.

For all I'll be leaving feedback when the season is done and payouts go out, thanks for a smooth season from a commissioner standpoint so far. I think everyone stayed active for the most part but did try to PM people who might have left multiple players who were OUT in an active lineup if I spotted it.

Best,
Nick

Talking now as a player and competitor, I'm tempted to throw this week to move down a seed and likely play Not Chad 1st week of the playoffs but I wish I could do it without changing the playoff entrants. I'd rather play him for example than Kamara or Mcgoo's m/us in the playoffs but to my detriment don't think I can do it.

I'll fill in my lineup and just hope C&M murders me this week haha.

I'm pulling for you! Give it the old college try and I can't be upset. With four 7-6 teams, it's bound to come down to points anyways.

I just have to pray Julio Jones has one of his good weeks...I don't think there's a more frustrating fantasy player than him.

Might be tough for me with Ingram likely out and Gronk suspended but I'll fill out the roster and leave it up to what happens. Not sure if I got room to pick up a tight end but nothing really that great available.

Good luck to all of you, score big this week all.

Never know, Ingram not looking great with the toe problem and I got Gronk suspended. Just need those points though even if you get the win.

Ugh, didn't want to drop another player but noticed I forgot to fill Gronk's spot. Good luck to all of you.

Wow, I turned off the game because all my games were basically decided that impact playoffs for me, didn't expect Wilson to score that much against JAX.

Yeah thought you had it.

Wish I would have sat the kicker and threw it a little....not looking forward to my matchup this week, I think I'm going to lose. The other m/u I would have had would have been a bit better.

Hot damn Kareem Hunt, knew I'd want the other game. Good luck this week, looks like we'll both be scoring over 100 I think.

Have not checked here since the league started.

Since about $170 of $200 of my starting roster got hurt i will take the win just for getting this far this year.

-Not Chads

Congratulations to Michael's Team on winning it all!



He'll be walking away with the 1st place prize of $400.

In the money finishers:

1st place: $400 Michael's Team (ironmike1229)
2nd place: $325 Carnivale (xbignick)
3rd place: $175 Nikki's revenge (mmier118)

While it's unlikely there's any stat corrections that can change the placement there are some close games in the leagues I ran so all payouts will go out Friday just to be safe. Once it's in your account you're free to receive it (or keep it in there) as you please. Leaguesafe just released the money for assignment today so that gives me time to confirm the names that will get money anyway.

I believe Michael's is Ellen R., Carnivale is me, and Nikki's is Mike M.

1st place please confirm since in the other leagues you paid under Michael but under Ellen here.

I'll leave feedback for everyone: non-winners tonight and the winners after everything goes smooth with you getting your money. I hope everyone had fun whether you won or lost, was a really odd year fantasy football-wise but I probably say that every year. I'll probably run leagues again on here next year but not sure 100% (might even switch back to cards), will have to see how things are going.

Thanks again everyone for a smooth year and congratulations again to the winners.

Winners have been paid out, thanks again everyone. The money can be found on the leaguesafe account you joined with. Leaving feedback now.



There are multiple payout options for you, completely up to you now:
