Round 2 is in the books for our “For The Heck Of It” Tournaments. A few matches were still to be decided from the San Francisco 49ers-Arizona Cardinals yawner on Monday night.
For those who didn’t manage to stay up for the duration, Larry Fitzgerald was tackled half a yard short of the end zone on the Cards’ final play on offense. It made a difference in two of my traditional fantasy leagues, and here is hoping you weren’t on the wrong end in your Throwdown match as a result of that Kevin Dyson-Mike Jones-esque finish. (Sorry to dig up that analogy, Titans fans.)
From our initial rules, the winners of Groups D and E advance to the A-side Championship to play three games against each other this week. The second place finishers in Groups D and E, plus first and second place from Group F, play a round robin for the B-side Championship.
At the end of it, we’ll have an A-side and B-side Champion for each of the Dynasty League Football, Footballguys and Pro Football Focus tournaments. Although this wasn’t envisioned at the start, perhaps we can have a cross-tourney champion match the following week.
Of greater concern right now is whether everyone who advanced can check in this week as a result of power outages due to Superstorm Sandy. We’ll do a roll call and see if anyone is missing in action. If that happens, then we will roll the tournament finals to the next week. We are Fantasy Throwdown – we can do that!
