I’ve been playing fantasy football for 12 years now, I’ve won 5 championships and have always had at least one of my teams in the playoffs, until this year.
I know what you’re thinking, why are you happy you missed the playoffs, well I wasn’t, until the Eagles-Rams game. You see I was surging in the last few weeks of the regular season, I was gonna make it into the 4th seed with 6-7 record as long as one guy lost a game. He didn’t. He won in week 13 by 1 point, making it official I would miss the playoffs for the first time in 12 years.
I won’t lie folks, I was bummed. I didn’t know what to do this past week when I wasn’t able to figure out who to pick up and how I could go about winning 4 weeks straight. I really didn’t even want to talk fantasy with other people. I even contemplated retirement from fantasy football. But then it happened. Something so unfortunate for Philly fans but for me I was thankful. Carson Wentz tears his ACL.
Carson had been my QB most the season, and really the only person who could really score points for my team. Can you imagine my mental state if I would have squeaked into the 4th seed just to see my QB go down the following week? Now I get to watch people freak out with this and other injuries in the league and be thankful that I don’t have to go through this pain. Instead I’m gonna sit back and get better. I’m gonna keep an eye on who will be on my team next year, because I will be back with a vengeance, adding a 6th championship to my belt.
