If anybody wants to get in a Yahoo! league, I just started one that's going to need a few players. Draft is Wednesday night at 8PM Central.

It's going to start two individual defensive players instead of the D/ST. Otherwise, more or less Yahoo! standard rules, with minor tweakage.

Send me an email through my profile if you're interested.

I was BishopTex. Finished 6th. Not terrible for first time.

You can return the favor next year when I dominate.

->> Congrats to bishoptx, this year's Gridiron Challenge champ! He snuck up from the pack and took it on the last day, edging Cooper by only 4 points!

I knew my four-peat was doomed as soon as a prize was offered, but I still ended up in a close third, only 15 points short after a couple of very poor roster moves. Adrian Peterson's surprise scratch a few weeks ago cost me dearly, when I lost my top spot and struggled ever since. Then I picked him back up in the final game at a premium cost and he basically laid an egg. Week 17s are a killer!

I'm taking it back next year!

->> I thought I had an outside chance if week 17 went my way, but with about 5 minutes to go in the afternoon games I was sure I was toast. My brilliant pick of Shonn Greene had totally backed fired as both he and LT were inactive, but picking up Ryan Mathews paid off big-time.

In the end, my win was definitely way more lucky than good.

This makes up for my dismal year in fantasy football.

Doug I think I offered you a beer and/or a taco for your win last year. If you ever come to Austin the offer still stands.

Neil that was a tough loss. I hope you play again next year and get a chance to avenge yourself.

Thanks to everyone.
