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!

Auction

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!

Snake

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!

We head into Championship week with the Quest for the Gold T-Shirt!

The Blanda Division has some great matchups!  Best of luck to everyone!

Snake

Darren Armani’s Fantasy Mojo team heads into title week as the number one seed, and is favored by about 15 points this week.  He takes on Doug Orth’s second seeded FF Today team who finished the regular season with a 9-4 mark.  Armani’s team will count on rookie Josh Allen at QB this week in a tough road start against the Patriots.  With skill players like JuJu Smith-Schuster, Adam Thielen and Christian McCaffrey, it’s easy to see why is playing for the crown.  Orth’s team sports some firepower as well with Andrew Luck at QB and breakout wide receiver Davante Adams leading the way.  The FF Today team is going to need tight end Vance McDonald to visit the end zone as well as big rushing days from Chris Carson at Kansas City and Leonard Fournette at Miami, which are both favorable matchups. 

Auction

The auction features a chalk matchup as well with the number one seeded SiriusXM team of Brandon Funston facing Mike Woellert’s second seeded 4 for 4 Fantasy team.  The SiriusXM team is led at QB by Patrick Mahomes, who figures to be a popular name among teams playing for titles this weekend.  WR is the strength of the team with Julio Jones and Mike Evans leading the way.  The RB spot will be the key however, as Alvin Kamara will need to show up with a big game, along with waiver wire gem Phillip Lindsay.  It wouldn’t hurt to see Anthony Firkser visit the end zone either.  Woellert will need a big game from Antonio Brown in a favorable matchup against the Saints on the road.  He will also need first round David Johnson to show up, instead of the guy we have seen most of the year.  Marlon Mack and James White round out an impressive pairing of flex RB’s.  The impressive Bears DEF will figure to come up big against a Niners team and should give Woellert’s team solid production yet again. 

After slugging it out for 13 weeks in the inaugural King’s Classic fantasy football leagues playoff time is upon us.  After a regular season that has flown by, six teams remain in the snake and auction divisions.  They will battle it out for the right to claim the golden t-shirt, but more importantly, the right to claim the first ever King’s Classic championship!  

Snake

The Blanda Snake division will see Darren Armani of Fantasy Mojo sit atop the playoff bracket as the number one overall seed, as well as tying Brandon Funston’s Blanda auction team as having the best overall record in either division at 11-2.  Doug Orth of FF Today will get a week of rest as the two seed at 9-4.  Week 14 sees the three seed Mike Woellert of 4 for 4 fantasy taking on Mike Tagliere of Fantasy Pros, who slides in as the six seed despite having a losing record at 6-7.  Like Pat Daugherty in the Brown Division, Woellert was able to make an impressive run with zero production of Le’Veon Bell.  The other first round matchup pits Colby Conway’s fourth seeded Fantasy Alarm team against the Tozzi Brothers of the Legion Report, who come in at 8-5 as the fifth seed. 

Auction

In the auction, Brandon Funston of SiriusXM sits atop the standings at 11-2, and gets the week off as the number one seed.  Mike Woellert comes in as the two, making the playoffs as a three seed or higher in both leagues.  The 3 vs. 6 matchup illustrates just how competitive these leagues were as both Gary Davenport of Fantasy Sharks and Colby Conway of Fantasy Alarm both sport 6-7 records, with Conway making the playoffs in both leagues as well.  The fifth seeded Rotoballer team of Josh Hayes and Nick Mariano will face fourth seeded Mike Tagliere, who made also made the playoffs in both leagues.

Snake

With victories in Week 14 both Colby Conway and Mike Tagliere advanced to this week’s auction semifinals.  Conway will face off against second seeded Doug Orth in Week 15, while Tagliere takes on Darren Armani, who earned the top seed with an 11-2 record.  Conway will rely on his wideout heavy approach to come through yet again but will also need Jared Goff to play well against Philly. Orth is getting Leonard Fornette back at the right time but will also need the Bears defense to keep rolling with big production against the Packers.  In the other matchup, Armani will rely on breakout wideouts JuJu Smith-Schuster and Adam Thielen to continue to post big numbers, while Tagliere will need Amari Cooper to keep posting big numbers.  The matchup could come down to how well Big Ben plays against the Pats at home as he will start for Tagliere’s team. 

 

Auction

The first round of the playoffs saw no upsets, so the top four seeds remain.  Three seed Gary Davenport will take on the second seeded Mike Woellert while top seed Brandon Funston will take on Mike Tagliere, the fourth seed. Davenport’s team will need big games from Tom Brady as well as rookie stud Zeke Elliott, while Woellert’s team is going to need all four running backs to chip in around Antonio Brown who is in for a big day against New England.  In the other matchup, Mahomes, Lindsay and Julio Jones lead the way for Funston’s team with the biggest question mark being Trey Burton at tight end.  Tagliere’s team is led by Todd Gurley (as are most playoff teams) but he has also benefitted from Amari Cooper’s recent resurgence, as well as Gus Edwards being a solid waiver wire find.

George Blanda Division

Snake

In a week full of blowouts, the matchup of the week was also the biggest point differential as Colby Conway’s Fantasy Alarm team bested Mike Tagliere’s Fantasy Pros team 149.25 – 83.8.  Conway benefitted from many players going way over projection, but starting both George Kittle and O.J. Howard proved to be a smart move as both doubled projections for the week.  Tagliere’s team was led by Ben Roethilisberger and Amari Cooper who both exceeded Week 9 projections, but was let down by Mike Evans who had a favorable matchup.  For Week 10, the Fantasy Alarm squad sits at 6-3 heading into a matchup with the 3-6 Fantistics squad while Tagliere takes on the 2-7 Rotoballer team.

Auction

In the auction division, Brandon Funston of SiriusXM ran his record to a league best 8-1 with a close win over the Tozzi Brothers of the Legion Report 123-85 – 118.95.  The SiriusXM team was led by breakout stud QB Patrick Mahomes, as well as Alvin Kamara, who both topped 30 points on the week.  The Legion Report squad hovered around projected totals, with Josh Gordon more than doubling his projected output for the week.  Week 10 sees Funston taking on Gary Davenport of Fantasy Sharks who comes in with a 5-4 record while The Tozzi’s face Darren Armani’s 2-7 Fantasy Mojo team.
