Before we get to how slightly awesome I was in fantasy football in week 3, let’s take a moment to pause so that we may honor (more…)

My Week 2 Results

Posted: September 23, 2017 in Results

I’ll break this down in a way that covers all the bases.

  • My win-loss record this week
  • My overall win-loss record
  • The accuracy of my projections this week
WEEK 2 BREAKDOWN WINS LOSSES
YAHOO 4.00 2.00
NFL 4.00 2.00
ESPN 5.00 4.00
WEEK2 TOTAL 13.00 8.00
WEEK 2 WIN % 62%
SEASON BREAKDOWN WINS LOSSES
YAHOO 2.00 2.00

ESPN 5.00 4.00

TOTAL 22.00 14.00
OVERALL WIN % 61%

 

Every week, I take the average difference between my projections and the actual fantasy football points scored for 130 NFL players.  The chart below shows that in the first two weeks of NFL action, my fantasy football projections have been off by less than one point per player.

WEEK 1 0.84
WEEK 2 0.41

So you drafted David Johnson 1st overall and now he’s done until December.  You opponent started Kareem Hunt, who he drafted in the 7th round.  It could be worse. (more…)

96% of my 22 teams made the playoffs!

I haven’t really reported my results so far on this blog because I wanted to build up a decent body of work before I started bragging.  After all, anyone can have a great week one and proclaim that they’ve cracked the code of fantasy football; that they know how to draft and who to start. (more…)

Remember the way your dad’s garage smelled?

Slow down.  Take a moment.  Close your eyes for ten seconds.  Breathe.  Remember?

To me, that’s the smell of fantasy football.  That’s where I hosted fantasy football drafts for about a decade from the mid- 1980’s through the 1990’s. (more…)

For the uninitiated… This year I participated in 24 fantasy football leagues across Yahoo.com, NFL.com, and ESPN.com.  The purpose of this experience was to test the success rate of my Fantasy Football Draft Matrix, which I used to draft my teams, and to test the accuracy of the projections I produce found on this blog that I use to pick my starting lineups each week.  I participated in 10-team leagues in which the top 4 teams make the playoffs.  In a world where 40% of the teams playing fantasy football make the playoffs, 75% of my teams (18 of 24) qualified.

Click on over to http://www.percentagecalculator.net… You’ll see that when a 40% success rate improves to 75%, that it’s actually an 87.5% increase.

No other fantasy expert nor product guarantees that kind of success.  And I do guarantee that kind of success.  Go to fantasyfootballdraftmatrix.com for more info.  I’ll get you into the playoffs next year or DOUBLE your money back.

And now… cue Thus Spoke Zarathustra…

.  Let me show you via screen shots how my 18 playoff teams fared this week.  NOTE:  all of my teams are named some variation of Fantasy Football Draft Matrix.

See.. it’s say’s Yahoo.  It says week 15.  It says I scored 118.62.  You can even see the URL.  Clearly, judging by the look of this very blog you are reading, I’m no graphic designer so I probably didn’t manufacture this picture.

So far… I’m 1-0 in the playoffs!

Screen Shot 2013-12-17 at 8.01.30 PM

2-0.

Screen Shot 2013-12-17 at 8.06.18 PM

Always tough to lose in the first round as a #1 seed.  This was perhaps by best team, featuring Drew Brees, Calvin Johnson, Knowshon Moreno, and both Carolina and Kansas City’s Defense.  2-1 so far.

Screen Shot 2013-12-17 at 8.10.22 PM

2-2.  I’m seeing the results for the first time myself, so I’m sweating like Meatloaf.  The singer.

Screen Shot 2013-12-17 at 8.11.29 PM

3-2.  Notice how I’m almost always favored?

Screen Shot 2013-12-17 at 8.12.33 PM

Always nice to beat a 2 seed as a 3 seed.  4-2.

So yeah, I made the playoffs in 6 out of 8 Yahoo leagues and went 4-2.  I’ll take that.  I’m just cheesed off that one of my best teams got eliminated.  That 1 seed was averaging 105 ppg!

On to NFL.com, where I made the playoffs in 4 out of 6 leagues.

Screen Shot 2013-12-17 at 9.43.26 PM

Ok, it happens.  Sometimes you go against Jamaal Charles when he scores 51.5 points.  Sadly, I still would have lost even if my opponent didn’t have him.  My opponent also had Nick Foles (33.22), Julian Edelman (19.9), That’s 100 points right there with three guys!  So, this makes me 4-3 in the first round of the playoffs.

Screen Shot 2013-12-17 at 9.49.23 PM

Nice.  Very nice.  Foles, Bell, Stacy, Allen, Jeffery, Hauschka, Kansas City to the rescue.  5-3.

Screen Shot 2013-12-17 at 9.52.17 PM

This is a romp considering I was a 3 seed taking on a 2 seed.  I’m 6-3 in the playoffs so far.

Screen Shot 2013-12-17 at 9.55.14 PM

This one was so close, I had to show the entire box score.  4 out of 6 teams made the playoffs in NFL.com leagues.  3 of them won. God, I live for this.  7-3, babeeee!  Plus it’s nice to beat a person who uses profanity in their team name.  On to ESPN.com…

Screen Shot 2013-12-17 at 10.03.01 PM

Don’t be thrown off by the score.  ESPN does things a little differently.  They have playoffs rounds that last 2 weeks.  8-3!

Screen Shot 2013-12-17 at 10.05.11 PM

Did I really score 290 points over two weeks???  CHARLES, GORDON, ALLEN, GRAHAM, BELL, CHIEFS, TUCKER!  9-3 in the playoffs so far.

Screen Shot 2013-12-17 at 10.08.07 PM

It’s just an embarrassment of riches at this point.  Join me.  Knocking off a 1 seed as a 4 seed is always nice, but when your opponent has a team name in ALL CAPS that makes them sound… “not nice”… I wink at myself in the mirror and go *ding*!  10-3!!!!!!

Screen Shot 2013-12-17 at 10.11.35 PM

Brees, Marshall, Gordon, Lacy, Seahawks.  Nice little starting unit there.  11-3!!!!

Screen Shot 2013-12-17 at 10.15.26 PM

It happens. 11-4.

Screen Shot 2013-12-20 at 3.04.27 PM

When your TE (C.Clay) scores ZERO… you lose.  11-5.  😦

Screen Shot 2013-12-20 at 3.58.59 PM

Disgrace.  11-6.

Screen Shot 2013-12-20 at 4.00.15 PM

A 1-point victory to get me into the finals!!!  And just like that… sweet redemption.  I went 12-6 in the playoffs.. 67% of my playoff teams are advancing to the finals.  Actually, half of ALL of my teams are advancing to the finals.  Remember, I was in 24 leagues.

No wait.  Say it again.  I’m was in 24 leagues this year.  12 of my teams made the finals.  Half of my teams are playing for the Shiva.

Fantasy football is all about the answers to two simple questions.  Who do I draft?  Who do I start?  I have the answers.
