In fairness, total points for is such a shitty metric for how good your team is. I get it as a tiebreaker (though would prefer H2H first), but it would be more interesting to view a team's deviation in points.

In my other (PPR) league, I'm putting up 130 per week every week, within 10. My friend Jacob has the same points for, but he's put up 170 in two weeks and less than 90 in two weeks. Hard to tell what exactly his team is.

And now that I'm actually looking at it, I'm averaging 97 points a week. Not too bad in a 12 team league. It's just that my opponents are averaging 69.7.
My team is getting stronger as well. I won a few earlier rounds on some flukes like KC scoring 35 points on defense. Greg Olsen is the only guy I started in week 1 that I'm starting in week 6. I'm a terrible early round drafter.

I'm also a terrible early round drafter. My first round pick is always fine, but somewhere around 2-5 I make substantially unfortunate picks. Guys that don't show up, fall off (hi Andre Johnson), or get injured (hello Mr. Luck).

Anyone who played with Andrew Luck and Andre Johnson last year knows the misery.

But I typically always come away with gem later RB picks. This is my only league I don't hold Demarco Murray in. Last year I was in the Doug Martin camp.

Are the quarter of you who have abandoned your teams willing to complete fair trades still?

Hewy's gonna get that last playoff spot without a fight.

Granted, his team is more deserving at this point, but were the roles reversed that would highlight the problem ten times more.

Playoffs aren't done by division, so if you look at the projected playoff bracket, you are currently in as the 4 seed. So you control your own destiny.

Huh. What's the point of divisions?

I'm totally the last person who should be complaining (my team gets the fewest per game against it).

I don't think my team is all that bad though -- I've been really bad in both of my leagues in benching producers and starting non-producers. DeAndre Hopkins says hello.

I think its just the way the ESPN league sets up. But if playoffs were decided by division, then there'd have to be some weight to the divisions, like playing everyone in your division twice or something.

And it looks like we have the same 2 week playoff set up as last year, much to the chagrin of our beloved Commish and #1 Cubs fan.
