MLBPPWORLD FANTASY WEEK 12 RECAP

One Man Revolution (GoTwins24) 137.66
The Jared Goff Lion Experience (Dishnet34) 131.66

Summary:
It was a do-or-die scenario for One Man Revolution, who would have been eliminated with a loss. Fortunately for them, they were able to pull off a narrow victory. On Thanksgiving, it became clear this would be a slugfest, as each team received excellent performances. For One Man Revolution, it was Dalton Schultz and Rhamondre Stevenson who came through the most, as both scored over 15. However, Gabe Davis has been ice cold as of late, and he was quite poor this week with only 5.8 points. Heading into Sunday, One Man Revolution was quite negative about their chances, mainly because of Justin Fields' injury and the trade that sent Jalen Hurts to the Atomic Pickles. But Trevor Lawrence stepped up in a major way, scoring 24 despite a tough matchup against Baltimore. In the same game, though, the team lost Travis Etienne early to injury, so Etienne failed to score any points. With this, the team thought they were done. But a key decision to stream Miami's defense against Houston paid dividends, as Miami scored 24 critical points. Also, the team's RB core was at its best, as Austin Ekeler and Aaron Jones neared the 20-point mark. Ultimately, the team just scraped by with the win despite Etienne's injury and terrible performances from their WRs. Now, they face another do-do-die scenario against the defending champion in the season's final week. For the Jared Goff Lion Experience, it was not technically a do-or-die game, but their playoff odds are now much lower because of their defeat. They suffered from some poor matchup luck, as they received many solid performances, especially on Thanksgiving. Amon-Ra St. Brown, CeeDee Lamb, and T.J. Hockenson combined for over 50 points, which gave them a seemingly strong cushion heading into the weekend. Their biggest regret, though, was starting Michael Carter over Adam Thielen. Carter scored 4 points and left the game against Chicago with an injury, and was thus outscored by Thielen by 12. Had Thielen started, the Jared Goff Lion Experience would have won this one. Justin Herbert did all he could to power them to a win, scoring 28, but a good amount of those points also went to Austin Ekeler, which minimized Herbert's impact. Lastly, Derrick Henry fumbled away a key touchdown, which had he scored, would have been a game-winner. Overall, then, this was a heartbreaking loss for the Lion Experience, who will now need a win and a Team Griffith loss to continue their postseason streak.

Worst Team of All Time (Queso James) 136.08
Team Griffith (Jag123jg) 100.3

Summary:
After starting 2-8, Smokin' Jay's Cig Squad renamed themselves "Worst Team of All Time." This may have been an attempt to reverse-jinx, and if so, it has been quite successful. This week, they were the third-highest scoring team, mostly due to Josh Jacobs' 45-point explosion. They were not happy with their RB core in the offseason, but if Najee Harris had perfomed up to expectations, they could have had one of the league's best RB cores. Najee Harris had shown some improvement in recent weeks, but he suffered an injury that caused him to miss the second half. This capped Worst Team of All Time's scoring upside, which could have been much higher. Also, Dameon Pierce has struggled in recent weeks after a strong start, mainly due to horrific gamescripts. Still, Worst Team of All Time was able to win comfortably thanks to strong WR play. Stefon Diggs and DJ Moore were each strong, scoring close to 20. Also, Tee Higgins played well, but he did not start this week. While Worst Team of All Time cannot make the postseason, they made the postseason picture far more interesting, as Team Griffith could now potentially miss the postseason despite their top spot in the power rankings. Team Griffith have had horrific matchup luck in recent weeks, and this continued, although they were the lowest scoring team this week. They are heavily invested in their Kansas City Chiefs stack, so their performance is tied to Kansas City's offense and gamescript. This week, Mahomes and Kelce combined for just 31, which is usually not enough for Team Griffith. This is especially the case when Christian McCaffrey struggles. McCaffrey scored just 6.9 this week and suffered an injury, which may cause him to miss Week 13. This would be especially bad news since Elijah Mitchell suffered a season-ending injury. If McCaffrey misses, then, Team Griffith will have a major issue at RB, which will be compounded by DeAndre Hopkins' Week 13 bye. To make the postseason, then, Team Griffith may need a strong offensive output from Kansas City, but this seems quite likely with a Chiefs-Bengals matchup on the way. Still, Team Griffith will be nervously anticipating their matchup with the Detroit Phantoms.

Auto Pilot (PhilliesFan134) 111.86
Los Angeles Aodgers (Kungfupandacam) 110.06

Summary:
Auto Pilot kept their season alive with a nervewracking win. Heading into Monday Night's game, the team needed Indy's defense to score about 2 points, but they toed the line all night. There was a point where the Aodgers came within a point, but Indy came up with a late sack to push Auto Pilot over the line. The most valuable player in the victory was Miles Sanders, who scored 29.5 points. This was especially impressive since Jalen Hurts took many rushing attempts away from Sanders, but touchdown regression has been a positive for Sanders in 2022. Also, James Conner has been strong since returning from injury, and he continued this trend by scoring just about 20 this week. These performances at RB made up for Alvin Kamara's lackluster 4-point showing. Kamara has been mediocre since scoring almost 40 in Week 8, and he has ultimately been a fantasy disappointment this year, but he can make up for that if he is able to somehow carry Auto Pilot into an unlikely playoff appearance. In especially positive news for Auto Pilot, Ja'Marr Chase will be returning against Kansas City in Week 13, which is a matchup he has historically dominated. To make the postseason, Auto Pilot will need to defeat the Jared Goff Lion Experience, and would then need the Detroit Phantoms to defeat Team Griffith. The Los Angeles Aodgers saw their chances to win their division and the top overall seed decrease with the loss. Allen Robinson was injured early in the matchup, and so he finished with 0 points, which killed the Aodgers' chances of winning. But their odds were further hampered by Tony Pollard's poor showing. Pollard scored just 7 after his outburst in Week 11. Dallas seems to be rotating between strong Elliot performances and strong Pollard performances, which may make Pollard an inconsistent option. In more positive news, Brian Robinson scored 19.5 points for the Commanders, and if he proves to be a consistent option, the Aodgers can patch their issues at flex. Also, Lamar Jackson has been better as of late, and he hit the 20-point mark for the first time since week 8. Early in the season, Lamar Jackson appeared to be on pace for a record-setting season, with the Aodgers directly benefitting, but he has since cooled. If Jackson can pick up his play, the Aodgers will be in a strong spot for the postseason.

iPump Plastic (iPumpPlastic) 120.34
Detroit Phantoms (DTigers115) 113.82

Summary:
The defending champion kept their playoff hopes alive with a narrow victory over the Phantoms. Many of their players were active on Thanksgiving, to mixed results. Justin Jefferson bounced back from a 4-point anomaly in a nice way, scoring twenty more points this week. But aside from Jefferson, the rest of the Thanksgiving players struggled. Jamaal Williams and D'Andre Swift made only a minor impact, combining for 18 points, and New England's defense scored just a point against Minnesota's offense that was humiliated against Dallas in Week 11. Because of these mixed results, iPump Plastic needed some solid performances, and they received them. Nick Chubb scored his highest point total since Week 8, capping it off with a game-winning touchdown in overtime. His teammate Amari Cooper was also strong, scoring 12.9. Each of these players should receive a boost with Deshaun Watson returning to Cleveland's lineup next week, and they have a favorable matchup against Houston for iPump Plastic's must-win game. The team's depth pieces also looked solid, with Ezekiel Elliot scoring 16. Elliot may be a better option than D'Andre Swift at this point, and the defending champion will be starting him in Week 13. This upcoming week, they will hope to keep their title defense alive by defeating One Man Revolution. If they do so, they will return to the postseason. If not, they will be eliminated. The Detroit Phantoms' nightmare season continued with their sixth straight loss, but they nearly played spoiler this week. It was looking like they could upset iPump Plastic and eliminate them from playoff contention, as the Colts had the ball at Pittsburgh's 1. But Jonathan Taylor botched a handoff (Matt Ryan was credited with the fumble) and was prevented from scoring a key touchdown. The Phantoms were put in position to win by Rachaad White, who scored 15 points and is appearing to take over Tampa's backfield. However, their top two receivers, who have been hit-or-miss this year, failed to make an impact. Terry McLaurin and Allen Lazard combined for just ten points, which was not enough to lead the Phantoms to the spoiling win. This has been the main theme of 2022 for the Phantoms, who have been hurt by poor WR play throughout the year, despite boasting a relatively strong RB core of Jonathan Taylor and Saquon Barkley. In Week 13, though, the Phantoms will receive one final chance to play spoiler if they can eliminate Team Griffith.

Teiyo Tomozawas (MUFFINZ) 138.42
Atomic Pickles (AgentP) 114.62

Summary:
Teiyo Tomozawas appear to be in prime shape for the postseason, and they will have the chance to clinch the top seed with a win in Week 13. Josh Allen once again led the way for them this week, scoring just under 30 points. Allen has struggled a bit since injuring his elbow, but this week he returned to early season form. Also, Samaje Perine was a strong streaming play, scoring 17.6 and filling in quite nicely for the injured Joe Mixon. Arguably the most positive sign is WR Chris Godwin, who scored 23 points. Godwin appears to be Tom Brady's favorite target at this point, and if he can remain at full health, he can be a WR1. Another positive sign is Michael Pittman's return to form with Matt Ryan starting at QB. Pittman has scored in double figures in each of the last two weeks and appears to be trending in the right direction. Even depth piece WR Zay Jones could be in for a breakout fantasy playoffs, as he scored 22 points in Jacksonville's win over Baltimore. Strong WR play has eluded many teams this season, and so if Teiyo Tomozawas' receivers can continue to perform well, they may have a major advantage at a key position. In Week 13, they can clinch a division crown by defeating the Los Angeles Aodgers. The Atomic Pickles saw their season end despite a nice run towards the end of the season. New acquisition Jalen Hurts did all he could to save the season, scoring 29.82 points in an electric performance. Garrett Wilson also broke out this week with Mike White at QB, scoring 23. But ultimately, the core pieces were let-downs, which cost the Pickles a chance at a win. Davante Adams scored just 10 points, which is disappointing after a multi-week tear. Deebo Samuel also only scored 5. Samuel has been a major letdown this season despite a fantastic season in 2021, which may be due to a decrease in rushing volume. But the main reason the Pickles will miss the playoffs comes down to poor play at RB. This continued this week with Devin Singletary and Jeff Wilson combining for just under 20. This year, WRs have been mostly inconsistent, so teams that loaded up at RB have been rewarded most. Now, the Pickles' attention will turn to 2023, but they can be proud of a solid late-season run.

MLBPPWORLD FANTASY WEEK 13 RECAPS

One Man Revolution (GoTwins24) 115.16
iPump Plastic (iPumpPlastic) 104.34

Summary:
One Man Revolution snapped their even-year curse and are now in the postseason for the first time in an even-numbered year. This came down to one decision: streaming Cleveland's defense. Houston's offense has been the worst in the league in 2022, and this continued with a horrific performance this week. Cleveland's defense scored multiple touchdowns and finished with 33 points. Without such a dominant performance, One Man Revolution would have been in serious trouble. Actually, Houston's offense was key in getting them to the playoffs, as the team streamed Miami's defense last week, which won them another must-win game. Aside from Cleveland, the team was quite mediocre. They generally rely on their strong RB core of Aaron Jones, Austin Ekeler, Rhamondre Stevenson, and Travis Etienne. But this week, they combined for just about 40, which is way below their usual standards. They have also had serious issues with pass catchers this year, and this week was no exception. Mike Evans and Chris Olave were looking concerning as they did not score any points until late in the second quarter, which made the win much more difficult than it needed to be. Also, Dalton Schultz scored just 4 after a strong Thanksgiving showing. While One Man Revolution made the postseason, they will need better performances to be a threat. The defending champion missed the postseason in a tough loss. Many of their players matched up favorably against their opposition, but were letdowns. Nick Chubb was the primary example of this, as he scored just 8 points despite facing the league's worst run defense. In the same matchup, Amari Cooper was also poor, scoring just 6. Deshaun Watson was clearly rusty, and this cost Cleveland's offense. Antonio Gibson faced a good matchup against the Giants, but he scored just 6.9. iPump Plastic would have been better off playing D'Andre Swift, as he would have added a key 19.1 points that would have won them the game. There were some bright spots, mainly Joe Burrow and Justin Jefferson. Burrow was expected to be strong, as he has been historically successful against Kansas City, and he delivered 30 points. Justin Jefferson, in contrast, faced a tough matchup in Sauce Gardner, but was still able to score 15. But these two performances were not enough to offset the overall disappointment, and iPump Plastic will miss the postseason despite a strong roster.

Auto Pilot (PhilliesFan134) 115.3
The Jared Goff Lion Experience (Dishnet34) 136.4

Summary:
Despite a strong performance and a key victory, the Jared Goff Lion Experience will miss the postseason due to Team Griffith's victory over the Phantoms. Even still, it was a performance to be proud of. Generally, The Lion Experience struggles when Derrick Henry does, and Henry scored just 4.8 this week. But Henry's teammates covered for him. Amon-Ra St. Brown has been one of the best fantasy picks in 2022, and he continued that by scoring 29.1. Also, Keenan Allen appears to now be fully healthy, and scored 17.8 this week. Still, Allen's return may have been too late, as had he been this healthy all year, the Lion Experience probably could have won at least one more game. This is especially the case given Justin Herbert's struggles, but Herbert has been better since Allen returned to the lineup. Lastly, Dallas's defense has been a strong performer all year, and they went off in the fourth quarter against Indianapolis to secure the win for the Lion Experience. Ultimately, though, flex-2 issues sunk the team, especially in last week's loss. Adam Thielen scored just 3 points, continuing a downward trend in his career. Had the Jared Goff Lion Experience had stronger options at flex-2, they may have been able to continue their playoff streak. Instead, they will look to 2023 to return. Auto Pilot missed the postseason, but they were quite strong for an auto-drafted team. In fact, they made league history by becoming the first team to surpass the 200-point mark in a single week. Consistency was difficult to come by for them, though, which cost them a playoff spot. A.J. Brown was probably their most valuable player, and he finished his regular season with a strong 27.9. point performance. Tua Tagovailoa, despite early health issues, was also one of the best picks at QB. This also benefitted Jaylen Waddle, who was usually able to put up good numbers despite Tyreek Hill's presence. This was not the case this week, though, as Waddle scored just 1.4. The main reason Auto Pilot missed the postseason was likely Alvin Kamara's tough season. Kamara scored almost 40 in the team's record-setting win, but aside from this performance, he was mostly forgettable. Had Kamara played up to his draft spot, Auto Pilot may have made the postseason. Still, they can be somewhat proud of a 6-7 record, which is hard to come by with an autodrafted team.

Team Griffith (jag123jg) 119.02
Detroit Phantoms (DTigers115) 99.68

Summary:
Team Griffith officially clinched a postseason appearance with a needed win over the Phantoms. Had Team Griffith lost, they would have become one of the unluckiest teams in league history, as they would have missed the playoffs despite being the highest-scoring team for the second straight year. It was looking precarious for Team Griffith around 4 EST, as Kansas City and Miami were struggling offensively. But Tyreek Hill had a strong second half and finished with 25. Christian McCaffrey was also elite, scoring 25. McCaffrey's performance was impressive as it occured despite Jimmy Garropolo's injury. Since McCaffrey was able to perform with Brock Purdy, a former Mr. Irrelevant, he appears to be a strong QB-proof option going forward. These performances were enough to offset a let-down from Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce, who combined for 25 points. Generally, Team Griffith is at their best when Mahomes and Kelce are on, but they were still able to win despite their struggles. Mahomes and Kelce have easier schedules in the postseason, which may make Team Griffith a dangerous team. Their biggest issue is unquestionably at RB2, where Raheem Mostert has fallen off. Mostert was a strong RB2 play about a month ago, but he failed to make an impact this week. There are two sources of hope here: Cam Akers and JK Dobbins. Akers scored 18 points this week, which is a positive sign, and JK Dobbins may be close to returning from injury. If either of these options can become a stable RB2, Team Griffith may be the championship favorite, if they are not already. It was a shockingly poor end to the season to the Detroit Phantoms, who finished with seven consecutive losses. Their pass-catchers were the main reason behind this, as many of them were major busts in 2022. Courtland Sutton, Tyler Conklin, and Jakobi Meyers each combined for just around 5 this week, which is essentially insurmountable. Also, Allen Lazard has been replaced by Christian Watson as Green Bay's WR1, and he has failed to score in double-digits since Week 9. Terry McLaurin has been the only solid pass-catcher, especially with Taylor Heinecke at QB. McLaurin scored 20.5 this week, but his teammates could not follow his example. Because of these issues, the Phantoms could not best surround their RB core of Jonathan Taylor and Saquon Barkley, although Taylor was not nearly as good as he was in 2021. It was a major letdown of a season for the Phantoms despite their 4-2 start, and they will now look to 2023 to return to form.

Atomic Pickles (AgentP) 153.2
Worst Team of All Time (Queso James) 90.74

Summary:
The Atomic Pickles have to be quite disappointed that they are not making the postseason, because they could have been one of the hottest teams in the field. Their acquistion of Jalen Hurts has paid off in a big way, with Hurts emerging as the clear QB1 with a 34.4 point outburst. Additionally, they would have had a major positional advantage at WR, which has been a position that has been frustrating for many teams. Davante Adams dominated with 33.7 points, and DK Metcalf and Garrett Wilson followed in his lead to score 20 each. Deebo Samuel has been the team's biggest letdown at WR, but he was still solid with 9. 80 points from the receiving core will keep you competitive, and the Pickles showcased that this week. Ultimately, though, their RBs sunk them this season. This week, Jeff Wilson and Devin Singletary combined for 11, which is a far cry from their receivers. This year was a difficult one for the zero-RB strategy, and the Pickles were not able to find a reliable RB option. Had they done so, they could have been in the playoff picture, but they can be proud of a 6-7 finish after their poor start. Worst Team of All Time waived the white flag, as they started DJ Moore despite his bye week. Had they played Christian Watson, they could have scored 22 more, but this would not have mattered. Josh Jacobs and Stefon Diggs have been reliable options for them all season, but they have not been supplemented by other performers. Dameon Pierce appeared to be inching toward RB-1.5 status, but he has fallen off as Houston's offense began their catastrophic descent. Also, despite some strong games, Najee Harris was a first-round bust, which was difficult for Worst Team of All Time to overcome. They did earn some key victories in recent weeks, which gave them something to hold their heads high on, but they will now look to 2023 to return to the postseason.

Teiyo Tomozawas (MUFFINZ) 111.22
Los Angeles Aodgers (Kungfupandacam) 94.04

Summary:
Teiyo Tomozawas clinched the top seed and the division crown and will make the playoffs for the second-straight year, an 100% success rate for them. Their RBs have been their strongsuit this year, and that continued this week. Dalvin Cook scored 15.3, which was an improvement over 7 points in the past two weeks. Also, Samaje Perine has been a key handcuff for Joe Mixon, and he was able to score 18.5 this week. Joe Mixon may be coming closer to a return, but Perine was definitely a respectable replacement. As it stands, the team's biggest need is at WR, as there have not been many dependable options there for them this year. Chris Godwin has been quite good, but he only scored 10 points this week, although he had a late touchdown overturned. Marquise Brown's upcoming return to the lineup may be significant for the team, as he can potentially be the WR1/2 for which the team needs. Michael Pittman was a major letdown this week, scoring just 2 points after it appeared he may be more successful with Matt Ryan at QB. Ultimately, Teiyo Tomozawas' success will be dependant upon the trio of Josh Allen, Dalvin Cook, and Joe Mixon. Each of these players are capable of an explosion at any time, evidenced by Mixon's 53-point outburst in Week 9. If they can find a solid WR option or two to back-up this core, they can be in position to win a title. For the Aodgers, some concerns emerged in the loss. Mainly, Lamar Jackson left the game early with an injury, and finished with just a point. Jackson will miss 1-3 weeks with his PCL injury, and the Aodgers do not have a replacement option on the roster, so they will need to look to the waiver wire. Also, Kenneth Walker was injured, although his injury does not seem as serious, which will benefit the Aodgers. There are also some concerns at WR, as Drake London, Josh Palmer, and Nico Collins are okay, but they have not been able to fill the void left by Cooper Kupp. Health will be a major factor in the Aodgers' playoff success, as Mike Williams and Damien Harris have also been injured. Going forward, Tony Pollard is probably their X-factor, as he can single-handedly win matchups depending on gamescript. In the first round of the semifinals, he faces a horrific Houston run defense, so he may be able to come up big for LA. They face a tough matchup in Team Griffith, so they will need everyone to step up their games.

MLBPPWORLD FANTASY SEMIFINAL ROUND 1 RECAP:

One Man Revolution (GoTwins24) 114.8
Teiyo Tomozawas (MUFFINZ) 88.98

Summary:
One Man Revolution got off to a strong start in the first round of the semifinal, although their lead is not as much as they would have liked. This week, they streamed Kirk Cousins at QB, and he impressed with a 25-point outing. However, the team also could have played Trevor Lawrence, but he missed multiple practices due to a toe injury, so One Man Revolution decided to start Cousins instead. This move cost them 8 points, which they would like to have gotten, but they will take Cousins's performance anytime. Also, top-pick Austin Ekeler excelled, scoring 20. Recently, streaming defenses has paid dividends for the team, as defenses carried them to the postseason by delivering wins in two straight must-win games. This week, their defense excelled as well. Kansas City's defense scored 15 despite allowing 28 points to Denver thanks to a first-half INT return TD. Next week, Kansas City faces Houston, which puts them in prime position to repeat their performance. Aside from these performers though, One Man Revolution could have done better. Mike Evans had a 68-yard touchdown called back, as well as an underthrown pass when he was wide open in the end-zone. Had each of these plays worked out, Evans would have finished with 20 more points. Also, Travis Etienne has been shockingly poor in recent weeks, and he has yet to score in double digits since Week 9. But the biggest disappointment was Rhamondre Stevenson's injury. Had Stevenson remained healthy, he could have scored 10-15 points against Arizona's defense, which would have given One Man Revolution a 40-point advantage. Instead, their lead is only 25, which is much easier to reverse. Next week, they will attempt to maintain their 25-point lead, which is never a guarantee. It was a major missed opportunity for Teiyo Tomozawas, as they could have made their deficit much smaller. But there were several key disappointments. It began on Thursday night when Tyler Higbee scored just 2 points. Dawson Knox would have been the better play as he scored 12. Also, their receivers were quite poor, as Chris Godwin and Marquise Brown each scored in only single figures. Brandon Aiyuk scored a touchdown, but he only made two total catches in the game. To offset these struggles, they needed a superb game from each of their running-backs, but this did not occur. Dalvin Cook and Joe Mixon combined for under 20 points, which was quite underwhelming given they each had solid matchups against questionable run defenses. Josh Allen was solid with 20, but it was not enough to carry his team to an early advantage. Now, down 25, Teiyo Tomozawas will need their best effort of the season, which is quite plausible. But they will need their receivers to especially step up, and Dalvin Cook and Joe Mixon simply have to be better than they were this week. Last year, Teiyo Tomozawas lost a major lead after the first round of the semifinal, so they will look to flip the script next week.

Los Angeles Aodgers (Kungfupandacam) 101.2
Team Griffith (jag123jg) 130.58

Summary:
Although they nearly missed the playoffs as the highest-scoring team, Team Griffith continued to prove why they are the likeliest champion. Christian McCaffrey looks like his 2019 self as he scored 28.3 points in San Francisco's win over Tampa Bay. This is especially impressive as Brock Purdy, a former Mr. Irrelevant, was his QB. Because of this, McCaffrey appears to be QB-proof, and can be a major contributor on a championship team. Also, Tyreek Hill excelled even with an ankle injury, as he scored 22 points on two touchdowns, one of which was a fumble recovery. But the most positive signs for Team Griffith actually came from their bench. JK Dobbins scored 18 points, and Jerick McKinnon was even better with 28. Each of these players appear to be wise stashes for Team Griffith, as they may now have a strong RB2 and Flex-2. If McKinnon and Dobbins can continue to succeed, there may be no flaws on this roster as it stands. They also showed they can win without Mahomes and Kelce playing well, as the pair combined for 28 points, which is solid for most duos, but below their ceilings. If Mahomes and Kelce can combine for, say, 50 points, and JK Dobbins/Jerick McKinnon emerge as a legitimate RB2 option, Team Griffith have to be considered the title favorite. The Aodgers' deficit will be tough to overcome despite some solid streaming plays. Jared Goff was the best of these, as he was better than injured QB Lamar Jackson has been in recent weeks, scoring 26 points. Also, Mike Williams is seemingly healthy, and he scored 20 points in LA's Sunday Night win. Also, Tony Pollard's emergence continued with a 20-point showing of his own. Outside of these three, though, the team left a lot to be desired. The loss of Cooper Kupp and Kenneth Walker to injuries was clearly felt this week, as Greg Dulcich and Michael Gallup started in the flex spots. They combined for ten points, which was not enough when their opponent scored over 130. Also, Mark Andrews has been dreadful since Week 6 despite an excellent start, which has significantly hurt the Aodgers. Finally, Tampa Bay's defense was a major reason for their deficit, as they lost three points. Had they gotten, say, 8-10 points, this game would be much closer. Instead, the Aodgers have a tough deficit to overcome, especially against Team Griffith.

Best of luck to the playoff teams in the final semifinal round!

MLBPPWORLD FANTASY SEMIFINAL ROUND 2 RECAP

One Man Revolution (GoTwins24) 239.08 (124.29)
Teiyo Tomozawas (MUFFINZ) 264.64 (175.66)

Summary:
Heading into the second round of the semifinals, Teiyo Tomozawas needed to be at their best to advance to the championship. And they were certainly at their best. At first, it was a slow start, as Brandon Aiyuk scored just 2.9 points. Then, on Saturday, Dalvin Cook and Michael Pittman both started slow, and Indianapolis jumped out to a 33-0 lead, a script that was unfavorable for offense. However, as Minnesota began their comeback, Teiyo Tomozawas began theirs. Dalvin Cook scored a key touchdown in the fourth quarter, and finished with 25. Michael Pittman got some more work due to the shootout, and finished with 14. At this point, Teiyo Tomozawas began rolling. In Buffalo's win over Miami, Josh Allen delivered his best game of the season at a key time with 35 points. Also, Dawson Knox scored 18.8. Suddenly, Teiyo Tomozawas became favored after Saturday, and they never looked back. Zay Jones, who was on their bench last week, came through in a big way, scoring 31 points. This essentially sealed the deal, and Chris Godwin added 18 points to close it. It was an incredible showing from the Tomozawas, who scored nearly 100 more points than they did in the first round. This is exactly the performance they will need if they want to beat Team Griffith for the title, and they showed that their upside is extremely high. For One Man Revolution, it was a tough loss, and was not very close at a certain point on Sunday. This year, One Man Revolution has been very consistent, usually scoring around 115-130 points per week. But recently, their running-backs have not been as strong, and almost all of their receivers were disappointing. This trend continued, as they scored a solid 124 points this week, but it was nowhere near enough to win. Each of their running-backs scored in double figures, but their pass-catchers were extremely forgettable. Dalton Schultz was the worst of the bunch, as he scored just 2.5 despite a shootout. Also, Chris Olave has been quite poor since being traded, and scored just 6.8. One Man Revolution assumed mid-round WRs would be consistent enough to load up at RB, which was a strategy that helped them make the postseason. However, since their WRs did not pay off (aside from Tyler Lockett), their upside was capped. As a result, they were eliminated in the semifinals, and will look to rebound in 2023.

Team Griffith (jag123) 294.12 (152.54)
Los Angeles Aodgers (Kungfupandacam) 200.18 (78.98)

Summary:
Team Griffith is the scariest team to face at the moment, as they nearly scored 300 points in a single playoff round. Previously, the team struggled at the RB2 position, as they rotated between inconsistent options in Raheem Mostert and Kenyan Drake. But recently, Jerick McKinnon and JK Dobbins have each patched the team's struggles at the position. McKinnon has scored 30 points in each of the last two weeks- an incredible point total. In fact, Team Griffith's Kansas City trio of Patrick Mahomes, Jerick McKinnon, and Travis Kelce combined for around 75 points this week- an astounding total. Stacking Kansas City players has been a wise strategy for Team Griffith, and it has paid immense dividends this season. Also, Christian McCaffrey has emerged as the top fantasy runningback, and he scored over 20 points yet again. As it stands, there are no significant flaws with Team Griffith's roster, and this was seen this week as every single player scored in doubie figures or near it. They showed that they were the odds-on title favorite with this win, but Teiyo Tomozawas have the potential to beat them if their roster clicks like it did in the semifinal. Injuries sunk the Los Angeles Aodgers this year, as in the first three weeks, they looked like the team to beat. However, Lamar Jackson and Mark Andrews cooled, and Cooper Kupp suffered a season-ending injury. From that point, the Aodgers struggled to find success, although there were some bright spots in Kenneth Walker and Tony Pollard. This week, however, Pollard and Walker were average, combining for 20 points. When these two are average, their receivers generally cannot make up for it, and that was the case this week. Mike Williams and Drake London each scored only 8, which was simply not enough. Also, Mark Andrews has been a major letdown despite a hot start. He finished his season with just 4 points, which is simply not good enough given his draft position. With the loss, the Aodgers will turn to 2023, although they can take pride in consecutive postseason appearances.

MLBPPWORLD FANTASY CHAMPIONSHIP ROUND 1 RECAP

Team Griffith (jag123jg) 101.16
Teiyo Tomozawas (MUFFINZ) 97.18

Summary:
Although Team Griffith got off to an early advantage, it was not as large as they had hoped it would be. In fact, it was one of their lowest scoring totals of the season. This was mostly due to a poor performance from DeAndre Hopkins, who scored less than a point. Also, their running-backs struggled, as Christian McCaffrey was the team's highest scoring running-back with 12.8 points, which is quite low for him. However, the team has Cam Akers available on the bench, and he may be finally returning to 2020 form. Akers scored over 30 points this week, which was by far his best total of the season. Akers continued a trend for Team Griffith this year, where a stashed running-back breaks out at a perfect time. Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce were solid this week, combining for just under 40 points. Overall, it was a disappointing week for Team Griffith, but they still began the championship with an advantage. For Teiyo Tomozawas, it was also a disappointing week, as they scored almost 100 less points than last week. This was mainly signified by Zay Jones, who scored 30 less points than he did last week. Also, Dalvin Cook underwhelmed, scoring about 15 less points. Josh Allen was once again the team's highest scorer, but he also scored about 15 less points than last week. There were a few solid performances from Joe Mixon, Chris Godwin, Dawson Knox, and Brandon Aiyuk, but they were not anything special. Overall, both teams performed below expectations, especially when compared to last week. But this was likely because of difficult playing conditions in many matchups, which limited scoring outputs across the league. This upcoming week, the weather across the country should be much better, and so the second round of the championship should see a much higher point total. With such a close scoreline, the championship has the potential to be extremely interesting.

Consolation Ladder Scores:
One Man Revolution (GoTwins24) 73.36
Los Angeles Aodgers (Kungfupandacam) 115.4

Auto Pilot (PhilliesFan134) 107.5
iPump Plastic (iPumpPlastic) 140.2

Detroit Phantoms (DTigers115) 99.6
The Jared Goff Lion Experience (Dishnet34) 130

Worst Team of All Time (Queso James) 89.1
Atomic Pickles (AgentP) 110.48

Best of luck to the two championship teams in the final week!

Team Griffith Wins First Fantasy Football Championship, 234.28-155.28

Summary:
Team Griffith was the highest-scoring team of the 2022 regular season, but they finished with only a 7-6 record. Because of this, even with their record, they were the most dangerous team in the playoffs. With their first draft pick, they selected Christian McCaffrey, and this selection paid dividends, especially when McCaffrey was traded to San Fransisco. In the final week, McCaffrey scored 28 points, which was a clutch postseason performance. But Team Griffith's signature Chiefs stack was what made them so dangerous this year. In the final week, they started four Chiefs players, and this strategy carried them to many wins this year. Patrick Mahomes and Jerick McKinnon combined for 45 points, and although Travis Kelce struggled down the stretch, he was still an enormous reason for Team Griffith's success. Jerick McKinnon was part of another strategy for Team Griffith, which was to stash players with a chance of becoming strong performers later. While this meant their bench depth could be weak at points, it became a major reason for their success, as McKinnon, DeAndre Hopkins, Cam Akers, and J.K. Dobbins each were major contributors in the championship run. Team Griffith has now won fantasy championships in baseball, hockey, and football, and so they have cemented a forum fantasy dynasty. Their opponents, Teiyo Tomozawas, put up a great fight, and were in position to make it a close championship finish. However, unprecedented circumstances occured in Monday's Bengals-Bills game, as Damar Hamlin suffered a cardiac arrest. As a result, the game was canceled. The teams' players made the correct decision in cancelling the game, and fortunately Hamlin was just discharged from the hospital. This unprecedented event had major ramifications in the championship, as the Tomozawas needed 80 points from Josh Allen, Joe Mixon, Dawson Knox, and Even McPherson to win. While it was unlikely they would reach this, it was theoretically possible, but they were unable to play. Still, it was a season to be proud of for the Tomozawas, who haave made the postseason in each of their two seasons in the league. Hopefully, the 2023 season will be a normal season after a few years of unprecedented events.

Consolation Ladder Scores:
One Man Revolution (GoTwins24) 230.16
Los Angeles Aodgers (Kungfupandacam) 227.5

Auto Pilot (PhilliesFan134) 187.3
IPump Plastic (iPumpPlastic) 243.5

Detroit Phantoms (DTigers115) 163.02
The Jared Goff Lion Experience (Dishnet34) 205.5

Worst Team of All Time (Queso James) 159.7
Atomic Pickles (AgentP) 212.06

Final Standings:
1. Team Griffith
2. Teiyo Tomozawas
3. One Man Revolution
4. Los Angeles Aodgers
5. IPump Plastic
6. Auto Pilot
7. The Jared Goff Lion Experience
8. Detroit Phantoms
9. Atomic Pickles
10. Worst Team of All Time

Congrats again to Team Griffith, and thank you to everyone who participated for another year! Best of luck in 2023.
