THE FANTASY SPORTS BOSS GETS DOORS BLOWN OFF IN SEMIFINAL PLAYOFF GAME

Sometimes it is just not your year, although I feel like I have been saying that a lot lately.  For the third season in a row, I will not finish the Fantasy Football Experts PPR League without a title.  This after winning twice in the first five years of the league.  Coming off my wild card win last week, yours truly absolutely got his doors blow off in Week 15 despite going into the game favored.  A breakdown:

-My opponent got scores from EVERY single player in his active roster.  Here is the horror show rundown for me (Josh Gordon-1 TD, Vincent Jackson-1 TD, Tony Gonzalez-1 TD, Rashad Jennings-2 TD's, Russell Wilson-1 TD, Eddie Lacy-1 TD, Dez Bryant-1 TD.  Than there was the fact he had the Seattle Seahawks defense which picked of Eli Manning five times and pitched a shutout.  Even his kicker got into the act as Dan Bailey hit five field goals (two over 50) and 3 PAT's.  It was as big a blowout as you can get.

Here is the kicker though.  I was beaten by three player I either cut or traded to this owner during the season.  When my team was struggling early on, I dealt him the Seattle defense and Gonzalez for Julius Thomas and Eric Decker.  That deal helped get me to the playoffs but it also helped kick my ass in the end.

As far as my team was concerned, Brandon Marshall, Zac Stacy, and A.J. Green were very good but I got next to nothing from Thomas, Decker, and LeSean McCoy.  And McCoy did nothing against a Minnesota Vikings run defense that was a joke all season.  Yet the Eagles kept throwing each and every down it seemed.  Finally, Ryan Succop kicked a bunch of extra points and no field goals and even though the K.C. defense scored and collected 7 turnovers, they gave up 31 points. 

So unlike in fantasy baseball where my dominance has included 9 of a possible 10 titles the last five years, my drought in fantasy football is at three years and running.  Oh and by the way that team that finished 12-1 also won his matchup easily since he had Jamaal Charles who had the single-most dominant game of the season and who is the fantasy football MVP outside of Peyton Manning in my mind.  And yes go back to the summer when I was drooling all over Charles in telling you to draft him in round 1.  Speaking of the 12-1 owner, he has Manning too.  Unfair.
