Week 15 Recaps (seeds in parentheses), with position-by-position comparisons:

SEMIFINALS

(1) THREE PEAT FLIGHT vs (4) JOHN’S TEAM

P. Manning-Den (QB) M. Stafford-Det

P. Garcon-Was (WR) A. Jeffery-Chi

C. Johnson-Det (WR) D. Bryant-Dal

J. Edelman-NE (WR) D. Jackson-Phi

D. Sproles-NO (RB) D. Murray-Dal

R. Mathews-SD (RB) M. Tolbert-Car

J. Graham-NO (TE) Z. Miller-Sea

S. Hauschka-Sea (K) G. Gano-Car

Chicago (D) San Diego

FINAL SCORE: 157.66-151.60

SUMMARY:

Flight Time led by a mere 2.56 points going into Monday night’s Detroit/Baltimore game.  Matthew Stafford put up less than stellar numbers for Jet, and with six of Stafford’s completions going to Flight Time’s Calvin Johnson, Flight Time was actually able to slightly increase his lead for the final margin of victory.

 

(2) COUNTRY BOY vs (3) TANNEHILLBILLIES

C. Newton-Car (QB) M. Ryan-Atl

J. Nelson-GB (WR) T. Smith-Bal

K. Allen-SD (WR) D. Thomas-Den

A. Boldin-SF (WR) H. Douglas-Atl

A. Brown-NYG (RB) A. Ellington-Ari

M. Lynch-Sea (RB) C. Ogbonnaya-Cle

 H. Miller-Pit (TE) G. Olsen-Car

S. Gostkowski-NE (K) J. Tucker-Bal

Seattle (D) Carolina

FINAL SCORE: 128.52-119.60

SUMMARY:

The injury bug hit the TANNEHILLbillies at the wrong time.  You are not going to win many fantasy football playoff games when you have to use Chris Ogbonnaya in place of an injured Adrian Peterson.  Despite that, the TANNEHILLbillies made Ant sweat Monday night with Jason Tucker’s monster game and decent numbers for Torrey Smith, but in the end, Ant got solid scoring up and down his roster and big games from Marshawn Lynch and Seattle’s defense in the Seahawks’ pasting of the Giants to claim the win.

 

Consolation Bracket Scores:

(5) GUTCHECKERZ 144.12 – (8) HANDLES IS COLD FAM 111.52

(6) MELPH52 122.10 – (7) AJ MILLIEN’S TEAM 115.22

 

Week 16 Preview (seeds in parentheses):
