Wow. A thrilling victory for one, an utter heart break for another. James White and his 45 fantasy points sealed the deal for Mike Gustafson to win the 2017 Playoff Draft World Championship and $20,000. The last second touchdown in overtime made the difference. We're hearing Mike now has plans to buy a new tournament bass fishing boat with the winnings.

While it's not the top prize, Todd does take home $2,500 and a bad beat story. We know Todd will bounce back in 2017. Both guys also of course won their league for an extra $500 cash. Congrats to all league winners who each won $500 cash!


Get out the sun screen for Craig Bodenmiller and three family members, from OHIO. Craig's team came through during the Divisional and Conference Championship weeks. His team of Matt Ryan, DeVonta Freeman, Julian Edelman, Julio Jones, Stephen Gostkowski and Patriots D scored an incredible 327.7 points during the Div and Conf rounds. A week-long trip to Maui’s 5-Star Kaanapali Alii Resort. Incredible!


What a fun contest for all! Brian Davis "GO BLUE" team, finished atop the mountain scoring 403.05 fantasy points with help from Julian Edelman and Julio Jones. He wins an entry into the 2017 Online Championship!

We all tried to crack this rubik's cube, so what did the full team look like? 

  • QB: Aaron Rodgers 
  • RBs: Zeke Elliott and Latavius Murray
  • WRs: Antonio Brown, Doug Baldwin, Odell Beckham, Julio Jones and Julian Edelman
  • TE: Travis Kelce
  • PK: Nick Novak
  • DST: Detroit Lions

Looks like a team you were trying to put together right? The call for Rodgers at QB and Brown vs Bell were the anchors of this team. Julio/Edelman/Baldwin was the right trio of players for those 3 teams. Latavius' 12 in a losing effort and 23.9 for Novak over two weeks turned out to be the right call as many used the Texans D instead (who finished with 17). 

The battle between Dr. Roto and Adam Ronis has Adam finishing on top but neither were very pleased with their overall outcome. Adam finished in 427th place while Dr Roto finished 490. That's a lot of free months of Scout right there! (I finished 388 lol)
