This comes from Rotoworld.com: "[Rashad] Jennings and DeMarco Murray turned out to be the two best running back starts in fantasy on Thanksgiving.  Not because they played particularly well; because they scored multiple TDs.  So goes life in a luck-based pastime."
 
This is not at all necessarily so in the GBRFL, which is a tribute to our format.  Luck cannot be eliminated from fantasy football, of course, but our league is pretty darn good at mitigating its impact, for sure.

Pretty sure I lost to 2 of the bottom 3 teams in the standings.   Thei defenses gave up a combined 16 points which was the dagger to my season.   Done.  Over.  Once I get over the losses,  it is stress free gbrfl as I have little to no hope except to play spoiler.    Dam it

Well, Stevo, some consolation coming your way... Late as they have been here in recent years (February/March the following year), but what is looking to be a little earlier this year, the 2012 plaques are in the design phase. It should not be after too long before you can give it a hug and reminisce about your run last year to a plaque. (With that said, do you not think you have a chance at at least a 2nd or 3rd Place plaque this year? I mean the standings are tight and, it seems, getting tighter!)

I def got crushed from JOE, UGHH, can't ever beat that fucker, he has my number. If anyone beat him with the week he had, good for them. Dave B and I are tight, i need a good Drew Bress game and average game from Wilson to have a shot, in Seattle, bad weather doesn't look good.

Don't be so sure you lost to me.  I didn't submit a lineup for Week 13 -- got lost in the shuffle of a very busy Wednesday and Thursday/Thanksgiving morning -- so I don't have CJ Spiller's stats this week.

He could still fumble and NOT score a TD right?

You want to talk about going up against historic days...
 
"According to ESPN, Jamaal Charles' 51 fantasy points in Sunday's win at Oakland were tied for the sixth-most since 1960. Gale Sayers had 55 fantasy points in 1965 and Clinton Portis had 54 in 2003.  Jim Brown (1961), Jerry Rice (1990) and Shaun Alexander (2002) are all just ahead of Charles with 52 points. Charles also became the first running back in the history of the NFL with four touchdown catches and had more receiving yards (195) than any running back since Marshall Faulk had 204 in 1999. The Chiefs officially clinched a playoff spot on the back of Charles' historic performance."

Well, I got the other side of that with Alex smith. It was almost like playing against Shane Vereeniging last week without the TDS. At least my kirt Cousins scouting may come true and worth holding him for two seasons

The standings are going to tighten up once again.  I'm sure I got crushed by Joe.  Hopefully I won my other game.  Either way, this thing will definately come down to the wire.  My team has no spirit without A.P. in the lineup.

This year was odd in that only the Chiefs were in position to rest their players in week 17.  I liked my week 17 matchups and I figured my guys were due after 2 crappy weeks.

Indeed, he got a key player, moreover, from his main competition for a championship.  It is a double whammy! Brilliant!
 
Stepping up to the plate and getting Campbell from me was also savvy.  This was a well-done run to a championship by Dave, for sure!

Congrats Dave on yet another Championship. I agree With Steg on the Hilton deal and DBs Depth, he had AP on the bench with an injury too. You soundly won again bro.  
 
My guys couldn't hang with his...plain and short.
