Along with a new logo for the site, we are introducing a new shield design for our Fantasy Football League. CrunchTime has never looked better. Stay tuned, as there’s still many updates to come.
The entire league passed on Cam Newton on Draft Day 2011. The same wont be said for 2012!
Passed up by all teams for 15 rounds, Cam tore it up from Week 1. The Top Dawgs used their high waiver claim on him after that 400 Passing Yard, 3TD performance, not knowing whether it was a fluke game or not. Fortunately, for the Dawgs, he was no 1-week wonder. Cam went on to have perhaps the best rookie QB performance of all time and along with Matt Ryan, helped propel the Top Dawgs to their 2nd ever Fantasy Championship.
The only question remains is….How early does Cam get drafted in 2012??
The Dawgs are partying like it’s the year 2000!
With a 3 point victory (193.60-190.48) over the Sons of Anarchy, the Top Dawgs claim their 2nd Fantasy Championship in league history. This puts an exclamation point on their strong 2011 season and ends their dreaded 10 year title drought! Big Congrats the mighty Dawgs!!
The very powerful Sons of Anarchy team took a commanding 13 point lead after the first week of this two week battle. They had the Dawgs against the ropes as Scott seemingly could only root for YARDS, as TDs just werent’ able to pile up as fast. Drew Brees made Tim’s team proud as he amassed 66 points over the two games. However, the Dawgs had a few tricks up their sleeve. Scott used the QB-by-committee approach as Matt Ryan led off Week 1 and Cam Newton piled up the points Week 2. This choice worked well as the two QBs totaled over 53 points, which nearly negated the Anarchy’s QB stud.
The Top Dawgs #1 pick, Calvin Johnson, returned to early season form and totaled over 300 receiving yards and 3 TDs in the Big Game. Many others also stepped up to just edge the Sons of Anarchy, like Marshawn Lynch. Lynch was a beast down the stretch as he hit double digit fantasy points every week from weeks 10-16. In fact, his TD in week 16, which helped topple the Anarchy, was the first rushing TD that the 49ers has allowed all season. …CLUTCH!
All hail the Dawgs! Thanks to all for another entertaining season..and we look forward to 2012.
McE takes the 2011 Pickem Title. His record of 177/256, with a pick percentage of 69.1% correct, led the way. Finishing 4 games back was ScottH with 173 correct and a 67.6%. See below for the final standings.
Our best week was also won by McE. His week 2 performance with 15 out of 16 correct (0.938) and missing the Monday night score by 7 just edged out JonD’s Week 12 score whose tiebreaker was 33 points off.
Congrats to those who competed. See you next season!
