Big Time Throwdown League 2 Updates, Standings

S h a r e :

It is Big Time Throwdown League Redux, or Part 2! We crowned our champion for the original Big Time Throwdown League. Now we’re taking another kick at the can. We lost WHUDEY but added tttimmyg.

Rules, format, etc. are essentially the same, although we do have a condition to not use any Thursday games from the NFL schedule in our challenges. We are also following this format for the schedule:

Week 11: Opening week, good luck
Week 12: “Bottom of the Barrel” – Bench players only (per Throwdown depth chart)
Week 13: QB included in flex
Week 14: “Lucky Losers” – Must use games with worst combined NFL record, TBD
Week 15: Dual flex, and QB included in flex
Week 16: “Dynasty Watch!” – Only draft players w/ 0-2 years NFL experience*
Week 17: Championship matches next week

Wild-Card: Championship Week

* Rookies or players in their 2nd or 3rd season in the NFL. The guys from Dynasty League Football are doing that in the DLF #PlayingForSteaks league, so I figured we’d give it a try too.

* On second thought, I’ve got a better idea. #RaceToTheBottom

 
Last Week’s Results (NFL Week 17)

Last regular season week to decide our Top 2 to go to the Championship best-of-three finale. Heading into the final week, tonyburtt was 1st at 9-3, tttimmygg 2nd at 8-4, Terminalkennedy 3rd at 7-5 and Peppy_Pants 4th at 6-6. Each of these players had a chance to advance, with Tony and Tim each controlling their own destiny. Terminal and Peppy needed to win and get help . . . just like the San Diego Chargers in Week 17.

tonyburtt 94.6
Wilforkisland 122.65

Terminalkennedy 123.9
laoch 90.95

Mike 82.4
tttimmyg 114.7

Butkiss DNF
Peppy_Pants DNF

Terminalkennedy 83.75
tonyburtt 72.85

Butkiss 123.2
laoch 119.75

tttimmyg 97.85
Peppy_Pants 67.15

Wilforkisland 79.4
Mike 124.15

 
Standings

W L PF/G   PA/G Dif  
1. tttimmyg 10 4 101.7 91.8 9.9
2. tonyburtt 9 5 93.7 84.4 9.3
3. Terminalkennedy 9 5 92.1 91.3 0.8
4. Butkiss 7 7 87.5 86.7 0.8
5. Wilforkisland 6 8 98.4 104.9 -6.5
6. Peppy_Pants 6 8 88.2 88.0 0.2
7. Mike 5 9 90.9 94.4 -3.5
8. laoch 4 10 89.4 100.2 -10.8

tttimmyg wins both of this games and shoots up to first place! tonyburtt loses both of his games while Terminalkennedy wins both of his. We have a tie for second place! Looking at the tie-breakers, Tony and Terminal split their games during the regular season, so it passes to the next tie-breaker, points differential. tonyburtt wins that tie-breaker and retains his spot in the Top 2.

Wilforkisland finishes 5th ahead of Peppy_Pants based on the forfeit losses tie-breaker. Peppy didn’t realize we had another week in Week 17, so she missed finishing her game against Butkiss and received a forfeit loss for that, our only one through two Big Time Throwdown leagues this season.

 
This Week (Championship)

Championship this week between tttimmyg and tonyburtt. Great matchup! It is a best-of-three showdown to crown our Champ. Wild-Card Weekend playoff games to choose from, so not a lot of variety but we’ll see who these guys favour to advance to the Divisional Playoffs.

Same lineup as last week, 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 Flex RB/WR/TE, 1 DEF, but PPR scoring this week.

Normally we would do 3rd vs. 4th, 5th vs. 6th and 7th vs. 8th games, for bragging rights, but with the holiday in the middle of the week I think we’ll forego those this time around.

    Holding off from putting in Week 12 games until I review depth charts once more.

    Also, need everyone to pay the $10 for this league so we can do same prizes/payouts as last time. If you already have $10 in your account I’ll deduct from there. Otherwise, please make a deposit through the site. Deposit link found on your My Throwdown page.

    Nuts, thought for sure I was in when I beat tony!

    You were damn close!
