I am only in my second year participating on the FFS Forums and using the tools they make available to their subscribers prior to the flurry of fantasy drafts that take place in late August or early September. While I have one won one league out of a possible five I have participated in over that time span I would not think of pointing fingers at FFS and the service they provide. Call me a “ham 'n egger” if you must. All responsibility from draft day to the final lineup I submit is my decision.

Thankfully we have a well rounded group of individuals who participate in the forums, as well as many who post similar questions looking for input and opinions of players. Even disagreement can be seen as productive at times. While conventional wisdom usually wins out, sometimes the obvious choice isn't all that obvious, especially as we near the end of the NFL season, teams have made the playoffs and you are going crazy trying to set a lineup.

This season for me has been another year of growing and learning. Yes, even after 28 year of running my league I am still being introduced to new ideas, concepts and strategies that prior to joining FFS were something I didn't even conceive. While I won't name the previous fantasy services I have used, what puts FFS above the rest is the interaction. Thankfully we don't have an all knowing, self-proclaimed “expert” who locks up his starting players or runs the risk of his reputation providing guarantees. We do have an experienced analyst who has been around fantasy many years and is good at what he does. As a bonus we even get to hear his radio show 3 days a week and talk to him if we have pressing questions for the upcoming week.

Unfortunately, this year for me has been one of the worst I have experienced in many years. In fact I can't remember just how far I would have to dig through records to see another season in which I suffered so many injuries that it became nearly impossible to recover from. As it goes, injuries are a part of fantasy football and not even the best preparation will see you though. Regardless of the performance of my team, my role as commissioner is more important when it comes to the health of the league. Even with the worst team (based on record) I had to put my frustration and struggle aside and continue to provide a service to the other 9 owners in the league.

Like last year I tossed in the towel early, this year after week 6. It was at that time I knew I could not compete in the league. I was too far behind in total points and my H2H record was sub .500 with mounting injuries and poorly performing players who were highly drafted. This year was a feeling of confidence at the conclusion of fantasy draft in Vegas. Preparation is always the key to successful draft and I felt it was my best draft in recent years. Much of that credit goes to FFS and the tools used to prepare, as well as the discussion during the later part of the off season. As many have said on the forums,” you can't win a championship on draft day, but you can lose one.” I did not believe this the case as I reviewed my teams and the rest of the league...(continued)

This season will forever be remembered for the lock out and the number of injuries players suffered throughout the year. As luck would have it I could not escape this uncontrollable factor and by week 6 it had done me in. At one point early in the season I had 4 of 6 RB out due to injury. All four WERE starters (DMC, Best, Jacobs and Moreno) in week 1. Other teams in the league suffered more severe injuries to key players but for some reason I had an unprecedented number of walking wounded and what made it worse was the lack of quality replacement players on the waiver wire.

This year for FFS I wanted to provide more insight to forum users. I enjoy posting my opinions on players and match up predictions on a weekly basis. I like engaging in discussions and hopefully providing supporting evidence for why I select players I do. At the start of the year I was able to provide a few pieces of information to fantasy owners, much like James providing his target reports or key match ups for players to start or Cody listing the number of snaps a player played.

As a moderator I am not obligated to provide any additional information, but I wanted to share knowledge with other owners. I started providing the weekly weather report know as the WX Rock (courtesy of NFL Weather dot com). Also early in the season I put together weekly Watch List highlighting possible players on the waiver wire to be claimed. The other was called the Boom or Bust List that gave the best and worst performances of the weekend and usually posted that after the weekend was over.

Unfortunately I was not able to follow though the entire year. One thing that we, as owners and commissioners sometimes forget is that for many of us, fantasy football is a hobby. It’s something we do for 20-30 weeks a year and forget about it (for the most part when the season ends). As luck would have it, I ran out of time during the season to continue providing my lists, so in some part I felt as if I failed some who had come to use this information. Hopefully I can rebound and fit these lists in on a more regular basis next season.

Regardless of how your team(s) did this year I want to thank everyone who I communicated with and provided information to. It’s always exciting to see owners do well and win their respective league(s). Congrats to those of you who prepared, made the right decisions, remained healthy and most of all had a little bit of luck to see you though.  With any luck I will be able to find some time to make a road trip to Arizona and Santisi’s Bros and take in Russ’s talk show live and meet some of the “regulars” who frequent the establishment as well as Santisi’s. Thanks again for a wonderful year on FFS!

Stephen (aka TBH),
Allow me to speak for all in simply saying "thanks."  because if we all tried to thank you for all that you contribute it would fall short.  

I too found FFS a few years ago as far as web sites I look to for advice it is simply it.  Yes I use a few others for informational purposesand to run my league but this is by far the one I use to set my season up and manage it throughout.

I too have had to back off somewhat but I know the FFS moderators and the subscribers free or paid are grateful for whatever time you, me or anyone can put in.  

Thank goodness we won't have to deal with any labor situations for the next 9-years amd get back to some sense of a normal setup.

So again...Thank You!!!

Michael, TBH, I really appreciate the time and effort the moderators put into this site. You guys are what makes it special. It's nice to know that even when I ask a not so smart question, someone is going to answer it with insight that I missed. No one has a crystal ball and no one can get it right all the time! Sometimes you just have to realize that no matter how good the advice or what you do, on any given Sunday your team just may not be good enough to win. But if you look at the body of work and the wisdom from the Admins, Moderators and the Regulars, this site is incredible!
So once again to all you Ham N Eggers out there, I just want to say thank you for another great season!

Hey Guy's,, Thanks,  It is all of you that make this site what is. This season was what we all  thought it would be it also came and went just as quickly as the last, perhaps thats is why I look forward to  the off season and getting all ramped up again for the draft days to come.
EVERY ONE HAVE A SAFE AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!
See you during the off season as well.

Throwball, I always enjoy your input on the forums.  I do alot of analysis myself, and when I get stuck, your's is always one of the first opinions I go looking for.  Your reasoning is consistently well thought out and helpful.  Along with several other moderators and posters, FFS is always a powerful tool and an excellent resource all season long.  Thanks everybody for a rockin season!

I agree with Dana it's all those who participate at FFS on a weekly basis that makes this a great site to support during the fantasy football (NFL) season. I look forward to more picks and more banter next season. All the best to each of you this offseason...
