FFWC Final 10: Saturday Recap

Live Coverage FFWC

FFWC Day 2: Saturday

Day 1 of the Fantasy Football World Championship brought the first two games of the Final.

The Patriots hosted the Chiefs in a game that brought plenty of fantasy points. Tom Brady had a great fantasy day but wasn’t used in any lineups. Rob Gronkowski caught 2 touchdowns totaling 27.3 fantasy points, and danny1234 was the only player to have him. This turned out to be crucial.

CONDIA started the day with a lead of more than 25 points. After getting 24.1 fantasy points from Julian Edelman in the first game, CONDIA was in a great spot. However, as the second game started (Packers vs. Cardinals), the tables turned. Randall Cobb went down in the first quarter of the game with a lung injury (he was on just three lineups – CONDIA, Stuckcee and underjones). He wouldn’t return. This guaranteed that CONDIA would have a zero in his lineup, opening the door for the rest of the competition to catch him.

And catch him they did. After Aaron Rodgers’ hail mary sent the game into overtime, Larry Fitzgerald’s heroics vaulted danny1234 and aejones into a virtual tie for first place – 12 points ahead of CONDIA. They’ll need a lot of help, though, as each has just three players remaining compared to CONDIA’s five.
