For the vast majority of the estimated 41 million people that play Fantasy Football in the United States and Canada, the Fantasy Football playoffs began last night. Did you make it in? We hope so!
The Dallas Cowboys and Chicago Bears kicked off week 14, and the Cowboys thumped the Bears (Dallas Cowboys lead all-time series 14-11-0) to clinch a winning season but the Fantasy Football managers around the world don't care!
Let's be honest, whether it's ESPN, CBS Sports, Yahoo Sports or any of the other Fantasy Football platforms, you really don't pay attention to who won the games. When the score was 35-7, NFL football fans probably turned the TV off but not the Fantasy Football fans! We're more concerned about the players and not the teams, right?
Tony Romo had an efficient night, completing 21 of 26 passes for 205 yards and throwing 3 TD's. His rating for the game was 138 and put up approximately 21 points (point totals vary from one league to another). Demarco Murray is a stud, and accumulated 219 total yards (including a season high 179 yards on the ground and approximately 33 fantasy points). He continues to make a statement for the 2014 Fantasy Football MVP. However, his owners hold their breath because of his style of play, heavy load and injury history. They all hope he can keep it up in the playoffs. Dez Bryant kinda let his owners down only catching 6 balls for 82 yards and 14.2 in point per reception (PPR) leagues.
On the other side of the ball, although the Bears lost, 3 of their offensive players still managed to put up strong fantasy numbers. Alshon Jeffery, Martellus Bennett and Matt Forte all had very solid games and most likely helped their fantasy owners. Unfortunately, 2 of their other stars disappointed their owners. Jay Cutler, and Brandon Marshall put in sub-par efforts and for Marshall it became much more serious, when he left the field and went to hospital (with an apparent rib injury). It's been an injury plagued season for Marshall but let's just hope he's ok.
All of the weeks prior to this one will be wiped out! For the next 3 weeks, managers will do their best to field the best teams possible and it'll certainly be much more intense than the previous 13 weeks. Fist pumps will undoubtedly be explosive, remote controls might go flying but that's only because there is much more at stake. Be sure to do your research, set your lineups, pray and wear your Fantasy Football T-Shirts!
