Before I start talking about playoffs, I have to make mention of the weirdness that is College Football News in Week 10. A fractured draft. Ending the year with a 2-8 record. A grand total of THREE transactions on the waiver wire. The record for LOWEST score of the week at 51.45...and then exploding during Week 10 to earn the highest single-week score of the entire season with 216.35 points. Imagine if this squad had actually been managed all year!
As for some teams that were managed all year: The returning champs at CFGeek won't be able to defend last year's title in the playoffs. Joining them will be CFFInsider, FCBlitz I, CFNews, FFOasis, SI.com, Fanball, NF Post, Pigskin Addiction, SportsBuff, OpenSports, and Sports Overload. Case Keenum, Dwight Dasher, and draft-dodging were all to blame.
Now, for the playoff teams: CBS Sports, Athlon Sports, RotoWire, FF Bros, FCBlitz II, FF Toolbox, RotoWorld, and Athlon Fantasy are in the postseason and have a shot at the title.
Kudos, of course, go out to CBS Sports for cleaning their regular season slate at 10-0 and to FCBlitz II for taking a draft dump roster and making it a contender overnight.
The Regular Season MVP goes to Cam Newton with 376.40 Points on the year for RotoWorld. Newton, by the way, was never the top Player of the Week! Denard Robinson (#2 overall) had the most POTW titles with three.
Best of luck to the playoff teams!
Athlon Sports @ FF Brothers: Lassan has been on the mark all year. It doesn't end this week.
CBS Sports @ Athlon Fantasy: No way am I betting against the undefeated. Thanks for hosting, Nate!
RotoWire @ FF Toolbox: The 'Box has averaged a good 40 PPG higher than the 'Wire. Omar's dead, yo.
FCBlitz II @ RotoWorld: Urban Meyer cannot stop RotoWorld's Cam Newton and the 30+ PPG over FCBII will end the miracle year.
