Tournament Championship Round Results
None of the Fantasy Throwdown games for either the Fantasy Football Writers Tournament, or Players Tournament, used the Monday night game in Week 15, so we declare our winners Monday morning. Congrats to MtgProHammer for winning the Writers Tourney and KevinShockey for taking home the title in the Players Tourney!
There were definitely some tightly contested battles in both of the round robins. Plenty of players we had high expectations for this week – Jordy Nelson, Rob Gronkowski, Adrian Peterson, Eli Manning to name a few – fell flat, while unexpected big performances from the likes of Aaron Hernandez, Reggie Bush and Donald Brown pushed us (well, some of us) into the winners circle.
Isn’t that always the way with fantasy football? Avoid as many of the pitfalls as possible and hit on a good surprise or two, and see where the chips fall.
Thanks to everyone who played in the first tournaments at Fantasy Throwdown with the re-launched beta website. We’ll plan for many more in the future, including the NFL Playoffs in January.
