    Love the recap.

    I don’t quite get the Oracle update. Are you saying that if The Tryhards win 9 of their remaining 12 games, then the Yahoo Oracle will have been correct about them? So this is kind of like a contract bid in bridge?Report

    Brandon Carr’s late-game interception return against the Manning brother with the better post-season record is the play that put Team Sandcastle over the top against Reba. It was clearly Carr’s personal apology to me for leaving Kansas City for Dallas. Apology accepted, Brandon.Report

    Fantasy Football Question about defense.

    So the Saints are playing the Buccs and the Seahawks are playing San Fran. Now, from what I understand, the Saints’ Defense sucks… but it strikes me that they’re more likely to be successful against the Buccs than the ‘hawks will be against the Unstoppable Kaopernick.

    What Do I Do???Report

      Match-ups are important. Though I’ve heard someone once did a regression on this and found there wasn’t a huge difference between players who used match-up probabilities to adjust their line-ups and people who just picked their team line-up out of a hat. (assuming similar draft strength)Report

      Seattle’s D is better than NO’s D. That’s a point in Seattle’s favor right there. Where are the Hawks/Niners playing? If they’re in Seattle, I’ d start Seattle and never look back. But (there’s always a but)…Bucs QB Josh Freeman will give the Saints lots of opportunity for turnovers. Both defenses are playing at home…I say go with Seattle.Report
