FANTASY SPORTS BOSS GOES DOWN IN EXPERTS LEAGUE FINAL

It was only fitting that it was Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott who put the final nail in my coffin last night in the Experts League Fantasy Football PPR final.  In what was admittedly my biggest forecasting miss of the season by a mile, Elliott was a guy I pegged as a bust candidate due to off-the-field trouble and injury issues going back to college.  Training camp seemed to validate those concerns as Elliott played poorly, got hurt, and dealt with off-the-field issues but when the lights came on, he was the best rookie running back since Adrian Peterson.  While we did correctly report that Elliott would get just 10-12 carries against the Detroit Lions (he would get exactly 12), he made the most of it in rushing for 80 yards and 2 scores.  Throw in one catch for 12 yards and I lost by two points.  Yeah that hurt.  I will rue by decision to go with Vernon Davis (2 points) over Martellus Bennett (9) right before Saturday's games got underway for sure but on the flip side, my opponent did the same thing benching Tyrod Taylor (37 points) for Marcus Mariota (10) as well so really it is futile to do such second-guessing.  That makes it two losses in the final in the last three years.  It is nice to get there but tough to see it slip away to someone else.
