I won! I won a championship!
My theory going into the 2017 NFL fantasy football season was to play the numbers. I drafted the highest I could when my turn came, focusing on wide receivers and running backs in the early rounds. Five of our six leagues did not have a kicker on the roster.
Each week, my starters were selected by using the players who had the highest projected stats going into the week’s games. When a player was injured and out for the season, I then replaced said player with the top player available in that position on the league’s list.
Going with this theory, I managed to win many weeks, have the highest scoring team and be in three playoffs. My final rankings were: 1st/12, 4th/10, 4th/10, 7th/8 and 7th/10. Just my luck that the leagues I ranked best in were not pay leagues.
Congrats to these League Winners

Obviously, it is tough to be an NFL player and have fans constantly ridiculing you on social media. The above tweet ended up becoming a good thing when the following tweet, along with many more, showed fans donating their winnings and giving back to others.
