    So yeah I vote for this for draft order. It definitely makes me feel better about beating that guy who sat 50+ points multiple weeks. Makes beating the dude who has sat 50+ points on the bench for several weeks more palatable .

    I'm sure this is the case, but just to double check possible points is just the most optimized lineup each week right? I'm surprised I had so many possible points to be honest.

    I'm good with doing it this way.

    I think keep playoff seeding as is and use this for all other draft spots.

    Yeah that's always been what we planned. The playoff teams are decided by record. And the results of the playoffs decide their draft order.

    Cool cool.

    Thoughts on who gets NFC 5th, 6th, and AFC 6th seeds?

    I'm personally hoping the Stealers end up as the 6th seed.

    predictions that will likely be horrifically wrong

    NFC:

    1. Rams
    2. Saints
    3. Bears
    4. Seahawks
    5. Cowboys
    6. Eagles

    I think the Vikes continue their free-fall and I think Dallas pisses me off this week vs Philly. Dallas also has two trap games vs Tampa an @ Giants in week 16, 17

    AFC:

    1. Patriots
    2. Chiefs
    3. Texans
    4. Chargers
    5. Ravens
    6. Steelers

    Chiefs have a decently tough schedule coming up and Mahomes might hit the Rookie Wall while the Pats have a relatively easy run of it. Mark me down as having the Steelers toast. Ravens - Chiefs is gonna be a fun one.

    Your seeding orders in both conferences aren't possible. You can't have both the Rams and the Seahawks in the top four, because those spots are all reserved for division champions. So Dallas and Seattle have to swap places on your list (even if Seattle ends up with a better record). Same for Baltimore and the Chargers on your AFC standings.

    That Derrick Henry run was fucking insane. The entire Jaguars' secondary just need to retire

    Bad luck having Henry benched for a lot of teams around FF in the playoffa lol

    Yeah. I mean, I can't really fault myself for having him on the bench the way he's played this year. Those 4 TDs would be nice though.

    I would've been so pissed if any of my opponents had him lol. Right at the start of playoffs too.

    For playoff seeding I think it'll be:

    AFC
    1. Pats
    2. Chargers
    3. Houston
    4. Ravens
    5. Chiefs
    6. Steelers

    NFC
    1. Rams
    2. Saints
    3. Bears
    4. Cowboys
    5. Seahawks
    6. Vikings

    The biggest twist is Chiefs and Chargers being flipped. I think if Chargers win their matchup next week, that should give them the edge in ranking. I don't know for sure if they have a tie breaker over the Texans so it might be Houston at 2 but that depends on if the Texans go undefeated the last 4 games.

    Chiefs win 3 but lose to Chargers, Chargers win all 4. Depending on tie breakers, Chargers win the division :)

    Sitting in an almost clinched playoff spot in my $ league. Just have to not be outscored by 100 or 140 (depending on the team) if I lose. Of course, I’ve lost Gordon and OBJ, and am down to 3 of Boyd, Baldwin, Godwin, Ridley and Baldwin at WR.

    In Mahomes we Trust

    Well, I'm an idiot. Picked up Giants as my defense and never saved my lineup. Of course they went off. Steelers will have to do in a pinch I guess...

    Thielen, I really need you to get me 3.4 points tomorrow bud. Help me get over that pats game please.

    (also 85 points from Carson, Thielen, and Lockett isn't impossible, right....)

    No, it is.

    *goes to find and knock on literally all the wood*

    Also, I'm gonna need team docs to check on Julio and McCaffrey to make sure they're not suffering from spasms from carrying the rest of my squad all year

    Finally! I was actually worried Thielen wouldn't get the points. At least I'll win Dynasty

    Not sure how I feel about that considering week 17 kinda sucks for fantasy.

    Edit:
    Wait that means I can still win redraft. Just need to win this week by 50+ lol.
