Tonight's game has HUGH fantasy implications

Recommended Posts

I honestly cannot remember a game, and a Monday nighter at that - that had such major fantasy implications this late in the season - for me anyway.

 

In a quarter-final (a win puts me in the money), I have a 52pt lead (and the tiebreaker), and I'm done. He's got Palmer and Wayne going. This one is gonna be extremely close. Do not want a high-scoring game.

 

In one semi-final, I have a 55pt lead with Marvin still to go. My opponent has Johnson & Johnson going for the Bengals and Utecht for the Colts. I like my chances, but a high-scoring game is something I definitely do NOT want to see.

 

In my other semi-final, I have a 35pt lead with Chad still to go. My opponent has Manning and Addai. I like my chance here too, but again, a high-scoring game could be a real problem.

 

In a nutshell, unlike a lot of fantasy players out there, I do not want a high-scoring game at all. I know that's unlikely, but I am in three playoff games where I have a a decent lead, but ones that can be wiped away in a hurry if the game is a major shootout. Like I said, I cannot remember a game this late and on Monday night, that offered so much fantasy impact. I'll be glued to the set all night with my fingers crossed.

I'm cancelling you out. I need Peyton and Wayne to go off, which would mean a high-scoring game. I would LIKE the Chad (and Rudy) to be held down, but I think for Peyton and Wayne to really put up stellar numbers, CIN is gonna have to score some points.

I would like to see a great defensive battle Colts 17 Bengals 10. Both defenses score TD's. :D

I'm down by 2 in my semi's. I have Wayne and he has Graham. I'm thinking I'm gonna need at least a 100 yd game from Wayne.

Two Leagues for me:

 

1. I'm up by 20 but he's got Rudi, Addia and Vinitiari left....I'm toast

 

2. Up by 3, he's got Harrison, I've got Wayne!

 

I don't even want to watch. Sat on my couch all day yesterday watching my bench outscore my starting lineups....by FAR. This will be a very disappointing ending...but I have my health so....

This is about all I need to take my game

 

Palmer ...12 completions, 180 yards, 1 TD

C.Johnson...3 catches, 40 yards

 

No I know what you're thinking..."Dude, you got it in the bag...they'll have that by halftime. The Colts have only 1 normal starter playing in the secondary, they stink on defense and Cincy is on a roll."

 

The way this week has gone for me, I have been having cold sweats about this game being a 6-3 defensive barnburner since EVERYONE in the English speaking world thinks the two teams will move up and down the field all night.

I would have to think that the NFL put this game on Monday night in week 15 for a reason...I'm sure they pregame will make a number of comments about the number of fantasy games decided by it...

This is the exact opposite of what I need, at least in my big money league. In my BOTH league, I am down by 30 with only P. Manning left, but the payout in that league is very minimal, so I will be rooting against Peyton tonight. My opponent in my big money league is down 32 with Manning and Wayne.

i'm skeeeered. in botnh, i have a 9.88 lead on rez. ppr league he has harrison and i have vinatieri left.

i am in the conference championship in 32 homers with my bears squad. might be my only team left after tonight.

All I can say is Go Chad Go!!!!

 

Considering that this is prime FF Playoff time, CIN vs IND on MNF is outstanding considering how many fantasy players are in that game.

I am down 9 pts, Housh and Wayne for me, Palmer and Vinetieri for the other guy. It's going to be down to the wire.

Both of our playoff games will be decided tonight.

 

Team A has a 7 point lead on Team B

A - Has Chad Johnson

B - Has Housh

 

Team C has a 9 point lead on Team D

C - Has Addi

D - Has Palmer and Graham

 

I'm Team D, and was sweating it big time until LT pull out another great game. I don't have a win yet, but should have a good chance unless Addi goes off like he did a few weeks ago. The other game is much more of a question.

 

Even our loser bracket has a close game that will be decided tonight. This is the coolest week 15 I can ever remember. Go Cinncy!!!!

Well I'm forked. I have 2 games that mean anything.

 

1) Do to Leinart, Gates, McGahee, and Mason doing nothing for me, I'm forced to have Wayne get 19 yards or less. :D

 

2) Due to the rest of my team staying home (except Pittsburgh D) and my opponent going off, I'm currently down 76 points. I have Rudi and Wayne. He has Manning. Though it is not out of the realm of possibility to make up the 76 points with these 2 guys, there is no way that I'll be able to overcome Manning as well. :D

 

So basically, I need Manning and Wayne to get lost on the way to the stadium and for Rudi to rush for 200 yards, have 10 catches for another 100 yards and have 4 TDs. :bash:

ahh yes, all those envious losers who didn't :D

 

If Palmer and CJ don't get backed over by the team bus, I should take down a team with LJ AND LT on it. :D
