Generally, Week 17 of the NFL season is a bit of a wasteland for fantasy football. There are teams debating whether to rest players, plenty of players that know their team's season is over, and things of that nature. However, this year is a bit different, with a lot of things that are still undecided.
We're not having a Daily Norseman league this week, but if you want to get in on a big-time league you can do just that.

From a personal standpoint, my fantasy football season was relatively awful on pretty much all fronts. You've seen my struggles on FanDuel throughout the year, and I wound up losing basically my entire stake. My initial $50 deposit has turned into. . .drum roll. . .$2.52! Yes, after cashing just one time over the course of the fantasy football season with FanDuel, I'm basically broke. Don't get me wrong, FanDuel is still a lot of fun and everything, but this is what happens when picking someone as your FanDuel quarterback is basically the kiss of death, which is what happened to me every week.
I was also in three more "traditional" fantasy football leagues. In one league, a league that I've been in for about a dozen years with a group of guys from a message board I used to post on, my season was abysmal, as I finished 1-12 and in 14th place out of 14 teams, losing my final 11 games. I had the #3 overall pick, wound up with Adrian Peterson, and. . .well, you can imagine how well that went.
One league I was in with some folks from work saw me finish in 4th place out of 14 teams, as my opponent came back to defeat me in the third place game.
And then. . .saving the best for last. . .there was the Daily Norseman Writer's League. In that league, my personal team, Joe Webb Still Sucks, emerged victorious in the playoffs, despite having a losing record during the regular season. Yes, there were only six people in the league (and the rosters were huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge as a result), but that really doesn't matter. . .the fact remains that there were six people in the league, they all write for this site, and I defeated every damn one of them to take home first place. Bragging rights, yo!
So, that was my fantasy football season in a nutshell. How did your fantasy football season end up going?
