Narrowly holding onto the #1 spot, HateUsCauseTheyAnus is still getting the league’s hate! Putting yourself on a pedestal, Adam! It was a fairly quiet week on the FAAB front for adds – minus a big-name veteran acquisition who is out for the year – but the fireworks happened on the trading block. It’s always shocking to see a team’s namesake get traded, forcing the owner to change their team name! The Freaks are no longer Greek… Here’s how week 12 went down in the REL:Please, blog, may I have some more?
Shake-up up top! The king is dead! Crazy 8-1 win for I Ain’t No Jok(ic), bringing down #1 Kap’s Team all the way to third place. It also made the top 5 teams all within 3.5 games of each other. Getting bunchy up top! HateUsCauseTheyAnus moves into first place with the upset win, but will have their first test of being the hunted. A ton of moves this week hit the wire, with one of our biggest cluster of adds since week 1. Here’s how week 11 went down in the REL:Please, blog, may I have some more?
2016 is here! With the calendar flipped, we now get a better glimpse of the future. 10-day contracts are on the horizon, we’re going to see more D-Leguae call-ups… It’s a fun time for the deep dynasties! Well, for the teams with FAAB that is… We had a big shake-up up top with Slim having some tough injuries, but Kap remains our leader, somehow with all his FAAB. Doing some sort of Madoff money magic! Here’s how week 10 went down in the REL:Please, blog, may I have some more?
There were several quality match-ups coming into the week including 1v6, 4v5, and 7v9. It could have been the kind of week that destroys dreams, crushes hopes, spoils milk. Maybe not the last 1 so much, and really not the other 2 either since all 3 match-ups finished close. After 9 weeks we finally have a couple of tiers of teams starting to develop. There’s the top 4, the playoff teams, who have started to put some distance between themselves and the rest of the field. Then there’s the top 9, the playoff contenders. All 5 teams are capable of making the playoffs but each has an issue or two they need to solve first. Finally there’s everyone else. There might be one or two teams capable of making some noise but they are falling behind and need to make a simple decision.
To play for now or not, that is the question
Whether ’tis Nobler to hold your aging vets
The 3s and Assists of outrageous Fortune
Or to trade Arms against a Team of troubles

The Civil War in the REL goes to JB this year! In the biggest regular season matchup for Slim and I in any fantasy league (probably not a hyperbole!), I shocked the #1 team with a 5-3-1 upset. It was really the only big change towards the top of the REL standings, with the playoff picture starting to form with the top-6 4 games separated from the field. Scheduling note – Slim will be helming the REL update next week, so I imagine he’ll take some pop shots back at me. Love ya Slim!

The deep dynasties truck along with another pretty standard week, as teams are pretty settled into their early-season rotations. We’ve yet to see any big D-League impacts in the NBA, so I imagine as more injuries rear their ugly, stitched up, corneal abrasion heads we’ll see a lot of young talent to scoop up as stashes. For the REL standings, pretty status quo for the top 8. Here’s how week 7 went down in the REL:Please, blog, may I have some more?
The rich seemed to get richer atop the REL standings, with the only losing team in the top 8 HateUsAnus losing to #1 Kap’s team. Playoff preview! Maybe I’m just intro slamming Adam‘s team because he trade slammed my team! Clippin’ at yo ‘eels, Anus! There’s a weird sentence… Interestingly, a pretty light week on the FAAB wire this Monday morning, as we move into a status quo week 7.

Week 5 has wrapped up, with yet another shake-up atop the REL standings. Kap retakes his throne, which is fitting because we’re friends from college and he wore the Burger King costume for Halloween once. With the tights and everything! Friggin skinny legs over there looked like a tranny King! I keed, I keed, nice to see you leading the league and quieting Slim a little bit… I can tell Slim is mad, because I’m writing this intro without his weekly recap coming in right away. Last week, I think I got it at 4:00 AM as he was unable to sleep without sending it ASAP! Hopefully all you deep dynasty players out there had a good week, and here’s how week 5 went down in the REL:Please, blog, may I have some more?
4 weeks in = we’re roughly 20% through the fantasy regular season! Crazy that we’re about that far already… Where has the time gone?! While 4 weeks does start giving you a sample of how your teams are doing, it’s also good to keep in mind your schedule. I always play the top teams early in the REL, then get the rebuilding teams in the second half. So before you start selling everything, be sure and check to standings and maybe the schedule just hasn’t been forever in your favor.

Week 3 is in the books, and I gotta say, looking at this week’s FAAB bids is why I love the weekly REL recaps. Several of the awarded players were “deep league” mentions in this morning’s daily notes, and can be a great way to keep an eye on the emerging guys from the wire a week or two earlier than 12ers. Since I prematurely shot my wad on what hopefully ISN’T a dry run, I have a mess on my hands! And the Elites didn’t let any of the big names fall through the cracks. Lewis Black couldn’t catch it!
