FANTASY SPORTS BOSS CLINCHES PLAYOFF SPOT IN EXPERTS LEAGUE DESPITE MEDIOCRE 6-6 RECORD

What this game does to your sometimes.  It has been a trying season for yours truly in the Fantasy Sports Boss Fantasy Football PPR Experts Money League. After digging out of an 0-2 start with some big trading (dealing Matt Ryan and Doug Martin for Matthew Stafford and Daniel Thomas) helped move me to 6-4 and in second place, the last two weeks have presented two gutwrenching defeats.  In both instances I would have beaten just about any other team in the league but instead went up against a squad where it all broke right.  Them's the breaks.  What is really aggravating is that I have scored the most points in the league overall by a decent margin but yet I sit here with a 6-6 record.  However it was on the strength of those points that allowed me to clinch a playoff spot despite not knowing what seed I will get.  The loss in Week 12 took destiny out of my own hands for the numbers 2 seed (and second first round bye).  I now need to win in Week 13 and have two other teams lose to get that perch which is significant.  In the previous seven years of the Experts League, five times the champ had a first round bye.  With that said I still think I have a championship caliber team unlike last season when I crawled in with a horrid 6-7 record to take the sixth and last playoff seed and than subsequently got bounced in the first round.  In the seven previous years I have been the champ twice but not since 2010.  The champ the last two years is also in first place this season with a crazy good 11-1 mark.  Yes he owns Peyton Manning and Jamaal Charles too.  Be that as it may I like my chances still.  Here is my roster going into Week 13.

QB-Matthew Stafford
RB-LeSean McCoy
RB-Ray Rice/Zac Stacy
WR-A.J. Green
WR-Brandon Marshall
WR-Nate Burleson/Eric Decker
TE-Julius Thomas/Antonio Gates
K-Ryan Succop
DEF-Miami/Kansas City

I will go with Stacy if he clears the concussion protocols and Burleson has earned the right to play over the slumping Decker.  Finally Thomas is ready to return which pushed Gates to the bench.  Hopefully all breaks right and get the number two seed but if not I will go to battle with anyone with this roster.  So do I stand a chance? Let's hear your thoughts.
