    I led the league with the best record (10-3) and most points scored. I had two players fumble (-2 points each). Has anybody ever had a similar experience in the playoffs? This is a first for me in many years of playing fantasy football. Other team had perfect scenario with scrub players. I'm trying so hard not to dwell on it :( *sigh*

    More times than I can count.

    This year it's gone the other way. I had a must-win game to reach the playoffs a couple weeks ago and won by 0.34 points (I was sure I would lose but the Colts finally benched Luck and Gore during their Monday night blowout of the Jets). And in the playoffs of another league this week, my opponent benched Brandin Cooks, handing me the win.

    Fantasy football is a fickle mistress.

    Well I'm glad it at least worked out for somebody. I'm not even as upset about losing because of the money as much as the trash talk. I am beyond annoyed. I'm praying to the football Gods for some stat corrections.

    Hopefully stat correction is on your side.

    I've seen almost every scenario. Teams barely squeaking into the playoffs and winning the whole thing. #1 and #2 seeded teams laying eggs.

    Receivers were a let down this year.

    Last year in our league, in the first round of the playoffs, one of the guys lost by .45 points.

    That was until a stat correction came out on Wed and gave one of his players an extra tackle, so he won by .55 points.

    Talk about dirty!

    Nothing worse than losing by one point or less like I did in a league last week. Stinks.

    I lost by .05. I was up and he had Greg Olsen left, I had nothing. I didn't watch any of the game on purpose because why torture myself and told myself I had already lost yesterday. It soften the blow when I checked after game was over.

    Hang in there. It happens.

    We had a guy last year throw a hissy because he missed the playoffs on a stat correction. Was so butt hurt he refused to do the league the next year.

    Never never count on a win if you were up by 3 points or less after the games. Always wait until its official to pop the cork

    I was ahead last night by a single point and had DEN as my Defense......a couple members suggested I sit DEN but I don't play scared and I would hate to lose to a point correction....Defenses in my league can lose points after 28, 35 and 46 points....-1,-3, -5

    It was very close as DEN of all teams gave up 33 pts but they got 1 INT for 2 pts and I won the league by 2(until all stats come in)

    I agree.........Defenses are the only ones that can lose points in that league but it just isn't honorable to sit them out..... my opponent used his D because they played on SAT so it only fair to play my D SUN night......next year I am proposing a rule that all teams MUST play a full line-up

    I have a 34 point lead going into tonight.

    The guy I'm playing against has Zeke and Bailey.

    I could be beat by my Cowboys in a meaningless game.
