L1 still has just me clinched for the playoffs. LLD and Pooky both clinch this week if they win and if any one of Pabs, Poker, Kilga, Superbowl, and Kdowns
other than their opponent this week
loses. Anyone in the crowd at 4-8 (Yiley, PEG, Peta, Tally) is still theoretically alive with two wins and a whole lot of help.

Meanwhile, with L2 being a 15-week regular season, no one has clinched a playoff spot yet, and no one has been eliminated.

I got attacked by a bear this week. Over 160 put up on me. With two losses to pooky this season its further clear I lost the supposed last season tie breaker that part of me wanted this season. I will likely have to compete in the 6 team loser bracket where bottom 3 go to league 2 next season.

In hindsight I think I was worse off with trades I made because Borrow got injured and mattison was not always the lead back I hoped him to be. Would have been better to trust in Thelin and a different rb. Had fun and got to try i season here where i had 3 trades so at least I got to experience that.

Honestly pretty shocking that, for how much parity there's been in this league up to this point, this week more or less locked in the Top 6 and the Bottom 6 (barring an all-world game from Christian Kirk tonight keeping Superbowl afloat). It's still mathematically possible for a 6-7 team to overtake a 7-6 team but it would require a hell of a Points For jump.

I think 100 points give or take between the lowest 7-6 and highest 6-7 basically means the playoffs are essentially set?

Hey is anyone in L1 going to lose their mind if I choose not to start a TE this week? Game is meaningless and I don’t want to waste a roster slot for one week on a TE that I’ll almost certainly drop after the week.

tbh I have no idea why you're that dead-set on holding onto Allen Lazard, but you're 12-1 and I'm not, so

I am fine with whatever you do. You winning or losing is not gonna effect playoff or relegation since you are 12-1 and its obvious who top 6 with the huge point spread. I personally would drop lazzard for someone even though you are jets fan. I would drop anyone for anyone if i felt it would get me a win.

Back in day panzer went multiple weeks not changing his lineup and leaving in players on bye. He got relegated despite being top 8 because those in charge then. I thought panzer not deserve that since the bottom 4 deserved relegation more since their teams were worse. Also as a result of panzers action, another Player that was in L2 and did not earn advancement was bumped into L1 over panzer. I also disagreed with this since that player did not earn it and it would have led to an L2 season where a bengals fan, steelers fan, browns fan, and ravens fan were all in same 4 team division

Do what you want d3f. You are activly choosing this fate rather than lurking which was main case against pazer then

Why you have lazzard? Because he jet? Get conklin if he available. If he not, i not care. You losing or you wining without a te is not going to effect yours or someone elses relegation. Top 6 is decided at this point. Your actions are not like panzers. And your actions are not like when nero benched his last player to deliberately lose and effect playoff seeding, relegations, etc. You are still actively playing the game and could win without a te. You are all good in my book d3f

There are seeding implications to you not starting a TE, d3f, IMO. 7 and 8 can't catch 4 5 6 but 4 5 6's seeding can matter based on which of them lose and win their games. I think you should be doing your best to win every game but I also get the concept of wanting to be the best team for playoffs.

I feel like... you should be starting a TE. just in my opinion.

I mean fuck d3f, I'm 8-5, if I lose and they get a win off you, they could leapfrog me and put me even lower. I'm not out of that seeding convo either.

I sort of think that you trying to stack your lineup for the playoffs is not different than like, sandbagging for seeding change when you have no stake in the game. In both cases you're intentionally lowering your chance of winning this game for possible future value?

I don't think you're like, overall throwing but I think it's not different to sandbagging, so I think you SHOULD have to play to win this week but if you don't i doubt anyone is going to like, hold a grudge

D3f3nd3r did not start a tight end in week 14. He lost by 30. Considering how the most scored by any tight end then was 27, it would not have mattered. And so the regular season is over
