THE FANTASY SPORTS BOSS EXPERTS LEAGUE: THE AFTERMATH

It wasn't meant to be.  After lamenting the decision not to play Tony Romo and instead going with Matt Ryan in the championship game of the Experts PPR league (thus leaving 16 points on the table), the Monday night game solidified that either way I was a loser.  I went into the game down 7.8 points and had Jeremy Hill and Demaryuis Thomas versus my opponent's Emmanuel Sanders and CJ Anderson.  Needless to say I was shocked to see myself UP four in the second quarter as Hill ran for a long TD in the first.  Still that was window dressing as Sanders would score twice and Anderson once as I lost by more than 20.  So even if I started Romo I was toast.  So my championship drought has reached four seasons and counting whereas in fantasy baseball I have won 8 of the last 9 titles up for grabs.  There is more luck involved in fantasy football as anyone would tell you but still I am frustrated.  I went heavy on the wideouts this season in Thomas, Dez Bryant, and Julio Jones and bought low on Arian Foster which was a huge success.  Still I came up short as my opponent made the move of the season in picking up Anderson off waivers.  Anderson was the single biggest difference-maker the second half of the season and is likely to be found on many winning rosters.  Not mine of course.  So now it is all fantasy baseball all the time as this is my true bread-and-butter.  So how did the finals go for you?  Let's hear it.
