We come to the close of the King's Classic Inaugural season!
Thank you again to all of the participants and congrats to all of the winners!
It was a matchup of the top two seeds for the crown in the George Blanda auction division as Brandon Funston of SiriusXM downed Mike Woellert’s 4 for 4 Fantasy squad 114.95 – 94.95. Funston was led by Patrick Mahomes, who cost $1 in the auction (yes, you read correctly) as he continued his 2018 tear right into the fantasy playoffs. The SiriusXM team also benefitted from big weeks out of Mike Evans and Alvin Kamara, as they both exceeded weekly projected outputs. Woellert was let down by Patriots wide out Chris Hogan as he posted a goose egg. The 4 for 4 team sported three players that scored below five points, but did benefit from huge day from Antonio Brown as he posted 37.5 fantasy points in the matchup. Congrats on great regular seasons from both teams and a special salute to Brandon Funston for winning the inaugural King’s Classic George Blanda auction!
The snake division also saw the top two seeds square off as the Fantasy Mojo team of Darren Armani took down the FF Today squad of Doug Orth 180.45 – 116.45. Team Mojo sported seven players that exceeded weekly projections, including Nick Foles, Christian McCaffrey, and Jamaal Williams, who all scored at least 23 points. Orth’s team didn’t experience any huge letdowns on the day, but Tarik Cohen finishing with 2.4 points didn’t help the cause. Andrew Luck and Chris Carson did their best to bring the crown home to FF Today, but it wasn’t enough. Hats off to both teams and congratulations to Darren Armani for winning the 2018 King’s Classic George Blanda snake championship!
