DWP! Fantasy Football 2007 - Congrats Warped!

Posted by Brandon |

Congratulations to Warped on his DWP! Fantasy Football 2007 Super Bowl victory. The Cinderella story is complete. From the fourth seed to the championship - what a journey. And he made it look easy knocking off johnnyhongkong 90-47 behind 29 Donovan McNabb points and another 18 from Frank Gore. Poor jhk had maybe his worst game at the worst time. Other than Ryan Grant, his reliance on Green Bay killed him as did the injury to Willie Parker on Thursday night. Bad, bad timing.

So Brandon, tell him what he's won....A wonderful basket of fine coffees and teas from the nation's leading purveyor of fine coffee and tea! I will email you soon to get your address and I'll get it on out to you. Also, CK Lions, I never sent you anything from your victory last year, so feel free to email me and I'll get something out to you as well.

In other playoff news, Snackiesonics took third place by knocking off the Lions 112-76. Quite the surprise given that she was at the bottom of the league most of the time last season. Too bad she had her worst week last week or she would be enjoying some fine coffee and tea herself.

The winner of the consolation bracket was CineRobots thanks to a 98-86 victory over DutchBitch Drama. After starting 0-4, CineRobots went 9-3 to finish the season and 7-1 with in his last eight.

Finally, my Down With Pants! team ended up right where they belonged, in eighth place as the worst playoff team. Roast Ducks and Peyton Manning had a harder time beating me than expected but they still pulled out the victory 99-98 to take seventh place.

Here's the whole slate of scores complete with leading scorers...

#4 Warped - 90 - Donovan McNabb - 29 points
#3 johnnyhongkong - 47 - Ryan Grant - 16 points

Notice two things...One: This is based almost solely on fantasy points scored and it's almost totally dominated by the top four teams. Two: except for our Super Bowl champion, Warped, who placed only one guy on the three teams. It came down to shrewd waiver wire moves, consistency and balance across the board, and a certain amount of good timing and luck.

Again congrats go out to Warped, our Super Bowl Champion. Nice work!

Now my reason to watch football is over. I really only care about fantasy football, I could care less about the real games. I guess I'll just have to root for New England to make it to the Super Bowl and then have their perfect season crushed by the Seahawks.

I find comfort in knowing that if I had made it to the big dance, I still wouldn't have won it. It is sort of a relief.

westbrook must be pretty good--he made the first AND second teams!

Whoops...good catch replicant. He was good this season, but maybe not that good.
