Was mainly focused on draft leagues this season but still managed to sneak into the T50 in RDT Classic at the final buzzer. Now 4 top 50 finishes in a row, or thereabouts (56th in 2019).

Also managed to edge out @Rupert today in the 7+ weekly comp league that @Connoisseur so kindly organised. Of course my Giants continued to be a perpetual dumpster fire so it was not all rainbows and unicorns for me NFL wise. :LOL:

Looking forward to the playoffs next week. Hopefully Omicron doesn't become too much of a determining factor. :cautious:

Score: 602
Rd Rank: 49
Overall Rank: 100 (from 141)

Victorious in the two super bowls I qualified for and perhaps the previous round I should not have eaten a TE donut in the several close matchups:rolleyes:. Great performance by all squad members, especially by D Adams as captain and J Chase combining for 200 points. One trade left to avoid a donut and hopefully I can hold onto my ranking within the top 100.

Current trades:
TBA

nice work and great season by yourself! Fair bit to navigate this year so I reckon you've done very well to stay relatively consistent.

Are you confused by what you scored like I am with some others? the playoff tourament page says 602, but if I click on your team it says 539. I realised this because I'm 5th in the week rankings and it says I lost a GF in a public league to somebody who has two scores as well (on the gameday match up page I beat him) and saw your score in one of the other GF's :LOL:

Thank you and a fine season by yourself as well.

Very strange. Of the seven leagues I am in, I have only seen that error in one league so far. Playoffs finished last round and I am pretty sure this has been a recent addition this season. I would recommend sending a game related query via the contact us section to see if the issue can be resolved.

Other than the 31 points lost on the 50-50 decision of Evans or Allen as the Chase replacement, a fine season capped off with my favourite starting selection of all time (across any format), the incomparable and ever dependable Cooper Kupp, delivering as captain once again. A welcome relief at this stage of the season not to have players on reduced snaps or rested and very happy with my decision to field Lockett over Adams. Thank you and congratulations to all involved for another fine season and I am looking forward to seeing all of the familiar faces back again next season as well as some new ones willing to give it a go.

Finished with a 533 to finish 73rd overall, 32nd for the round. I probably didn't deserve to rank so high, got a bit lucky in the final round. Didn't leave as many points as I thought on the bench in the end - Conner (48), who I thought was doubtful to play and fielding the Pats DST (0) over the Vikings (36) were my main losses.

I honestly lost a bit of interest this year and should have done a lot better if I was paying attention. I still enjoy the format, but just couldn't get things going this year, spent too much time solely covering off covid outs (when I was paying attention) rather than focusing on finding players in good form. Bit of a frustrating season to be honest.

I might join the Sleeper league you have going, but I'll give others a shot to join first. It's not really my thing to be honest, I know I won't be as dedicated to it as others might be. I'll only join if you really need the extra person.

Had a good final week after a number of weeks where I felt like the team was decent but every little thing seemed to bounce the wrong way. This was a week where everything broke my way with the exception of Tyreek, I was also fortunate enough to notice my Bengals kicker was out and avoided a donut there.

Lots of luck is involved in this game and just when I think I've got the hang of it and everything is going well things seem to fall apart. It's a lot harder for players to be consistent due to the importance of opponent and game plan compared to AFL, which makes the game tough. Look forward to the next year of it, my biggest mistakes continue to be in overpaying for DST teams at the start of seasons and not getting the QB set up right from the start. Think I've finally figured out how to best manage the receiver and running back lines.

Thanks to everyone who was part of the leagues !

Firstly, I enjoyed playing this year. In my 7 Leagues, in most of them, I sat up top for most of the year and enjoyed the ride. No doubt, luck played a big part, as many times I wanted to trade players out, but due to other more serious issues, I did not, only to benefit from it.

The last 3 rounds I fell in a hole, the 2 most disapponting players were Hill and Kittle and it was frustrating watching my bench players greatly outscoring my starting players in the Finals. Also, since I had trades left for the finals, I side traded players to higher ranking players to get the higher scores, only for the traded out players scoring higher :(. I had all my 7 Teams playing in the pre-Superbowl Final and 4 played in the SuperBowl, but unfortunately I lost them all. But it was exciting playing in my first finals.

Congratulations to all the winners and a big thank you to all the 'most helpful' contributors and @KLo30 for organising the Leagues.
Looking forward to playing again.

Really enjoyed my first crack at NFL RDT this season. Have been a long time redraft/dynasty player with mates so was fun to try another format and plenty of learnings to take in from my first season. First off leaving 4 trades in the bank was not my smartest move. Needed to be more aggressive early to jump on the players with low BE's.

Anyway very happy to have finished 36th and will definitely give it another crack next year.
