Here we are, the final week of 3K's 2009 Fantasy Football League. It's been a great season with more close games than one would care to live through again. Should be a fun final week, with the final two contests to follow as you are opening your Christmas gifts. Here we go....
2009 3K World Cup Championship
CO Giants vs. Roscoe Village Hot Dogs
A classic David vs. Goliath matchup. The 6 seeded Hot Dogs, entering the playoffs one game under .500 face off against the juggernaut 1 seed CO Giants. It's no secret that Giant Mike has run the table since the 2nd half of the season started (no pun intended). With a #1 ranked running back corp and potent QB, the CO Giants are clearly in the drivers seat after a nailbite victory against Hoosier Heat. The Giants have a clear advantage in the QB/RB category, while it's a wash with the receiver corp (the Hot Dogs have a distinct advantage over the Giants in the TE category). If PG wants the World Cup, he (like Mr. Hackman) better pray for a repeat performance from Chris Johnson and Cedric Benson. That is the only thing that is going to keep him in this game (as it did Mr. Hackman this past week).
2009 3K Good Hands Bowl
Nigerian Nightmares vs. Hoosier Heat
The Good Hands Bowl, brought to you by Allstate. That's Allstate, are you in good hands? With Old Linc kicking himself for starting Jason Campbell over Vince Young, the Nightmares look to redeem themselves and finish with a strong #3 ranking. I'm not sure it gets any harder for Mr. Hackman, who came within 2 points of unseating the #1 ranked team and a trip to the 3K World Cup Championship game. Slight advantage goes to Hoosier Heat in this one, with Adrian Peterson, Greg Jennings, and a tough Pats D leading the way. His receiver corp is paltry, and Old Linc can make up significant ground with solid performances by DeSean, Marques, Welker, and Vernon. In true 3K League fashion, I believe we're looking at another nailbiter.
