Was going to say the thing. Not only did I face Hunt in 80% of the leagues where I didn't own him, I actually lost one matchup while starting both Hunt/Hill. Granted it's a 1st year dynasty where I went super youth heavy, but when two players get you ~75pts PPR on THU and you still lose despite it being a incredibly low scoring week overall, that's a pretty brutal FF bad beat.

Brag: picked up Cohen and Kupp as FAs during the preseason.

Beat: benched gillislee, Cohen and kupp

Variance: my ideal lineup still would have lost vs Hunt, Jax and Bailey et all

He runs for 33.

I lose by 0.9 with the league's second-highest score this week.
A stat correction adding a fumble to Derek Carr's total gave me the win by 0.1. Variance?

Do those yards have to be in the correct direction? That makes it tougher.

0.5 PPR: how much do we like Golden Tate's chances to put up 10.0 points @ NYG tonight? Feel like it's really close to 50/50.

Re: 2017 Fantasy Brags, Beats, and Variance

I went to bed last night down 0.5 with Ebron and Golladay vs. Giants D. Golladay's catch got my a tie.

Did the Lions and Giants actually play another half of football? I really don't think they did, because it seems like no stats were recorded after halftime.

Ps. 8 leagues.

5-2-1 week.

2 teams at 2-0.
6 teams at 1-1.

Plus, I own a lot of Buck Allen.

Beat: losing despite 2nd highest highest score for the week (14-teamer). Feel like this happens at the start of every f*cking year, though statistically it's inevitable given the number of teams I've drafted.

Needed Ebron to outscore Galloday by around 7 to go 4-0 this week. Figured I was dead in the water.

In my longest tenured league, I'm 1-0-1 (LOL No fractional scoring).

PF: 172
PA: 171

Good for 2nd Lowest Scoring Team in the league.
