    Fantasy close calls

    I won my league game this week by .12 points, has anyone had a closer game than that?

    Re: Fantasy close calls

    I lost by 77 points this week, 119-42. If Roethlisberger had thrown 8 TD's to Heath Miller last night, I would've won though.

    I did win $100 in my office pick'em pool for NFL, so I don't completely suck. Plus, I'm on kind of a CyBookie roll. I think the house must've decided to reward me for my fine play, because I'm up 100,000 creds too!

    I lost this week by .8 points. Stupid Chris Johnson took Lendale White's 2nd touchdown.

    Re: Fantasy close calls

    Our league only deals in full points, so the closest I've come is 1 pt. I have had a game where I would have won, but the winning points were called back for holding. That sucked!

    No decimals in our leagues either, but a guy lost by 5 points last week when DeSean Jackson celebrated too early and dropped the ball at the 1 instead of walking into the endzone for 6 points.

    I know the feeling, last year in my league baseball championship, we tied and the tie breaker was ERA. The difference was 2.37 to 2.55.

    I beat isuarch80 this week in the Cyclone Fanatics league by 0.04. I'm still stinking it up at only 1-3-0 though.

    I won my game in another league because of this.

    Reed's FG was good enough for 4 points and that gave me about a 3.75 point win. Kind of fun winning a game on a FG and watching it happen.

    I had the Ravens Defense and had a one point lead going into the overtime. Any one of those near sacks towards the end of the game or overtime would have sealed it, but that field goal dropped my defense down two points...

    Re: Fantasy close calls

    Going into last night's game I was down by 24 points, but I had the Steeler's defense. I was ahead for most of the game, until Baltimore scored the touchdown to give them 20 points...then Pittsburgh got their fifth sack (in our league, if your defense gets five or more sacks, you get bonus points), so I ended up winning by two .

    Frankly, I had no business winning the game, since I left a combined 43 points on the bench between Laverneus Coles and Owen Daniels, but since I drafted Tom Brady with the third overall pick, I'll take wins any way I can get them.
