Fantasy Football 2017 Season Recap

Fantasy Football Reporter

By Liz Panucci // @PanucciLiz

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

Todd Gurley of the Los Angeles Rams was the top fantasy player. He recently sent out this tweet:

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.
