Anti-Fantasy League: Week 19

Things are tight at the top of the Anti-Fantasy standings. It appears that many of you are very talented at picking the worst players, which means if I’m the captain in a pick-up game of road hockey, I want one of you to be the other captain.

Topping the leaderboard for the 16th straight week is holidayblues, but there are now a host of contestants within striking distance. The closest trio are invisibleairwaves (2 points back), Joeducklow, and Rebecca Scott (both 3 points back). Seven others are within 20 points of first place.

Now that we’re in the home stretch, it’s worth comparing the top teams directly to each other.

Key for holidayblues to separate herself from the others here: Brad Richards as well as a series of savvy choices echoed by one or two of her competitors. Danny Briere has helped invisibleairwaves and Joeducklow gain some ground, Matthew Lombardi has helped them and Rebecca Scott, and Nino Niederreiter has been key for Joeducklow to make up for the choice of Pekka Rinne and Pavel Datsyuk.

The Anti-Fantasy All-Star Team has 309 points:

1. Alex Ovechkin – 45 points
2. Ryan Getzlaf – 40 points
3. Brad Richards – 39 points
4. Danny Briere – 33 points
5. Dany Heatley – 41 points
6. Matthew Lombardi – 13 points
7. Matt Duchene – 24 points
8. Nino Neiderreiter – 1 point
9. Paul Bissonnette/Cam Janssen – 1 point
10. Christian Ehrhoff – 21 points
11. Tobias Enstrom – 21 points
12. Douglas Murray – 4 points
13. Jason Strudwick – 0 points
14. Ilya Bryzgalov – 24 points
15. Andrew Raycroft – 2 points

    I feel that this the appropriate time to reveal that, at the time of the anti-fantasy draft, I had only been a hockey fan for 9-ish months and I selected people because (a) I knew them or I had at least heard of them, or (b) I found their names funny.

    That was a good strategy.

      Well, I’m crying myself to sleep tonight.

      (But seriously, if you can win this thing, hb, big congrats for a relative newcomer to the fandom.)

        Aw, well. Thanks in advance – although I hope I don’t get jinxed, hah.

      I did that in my first fantasy pool too! And it totally worked. I won that thing by a lot. And incidentally that was one of the reasons I became a Canucks fan, even though I was on the East Coast at the time. Because, let’s face it – Luongo has a really funny name. And he got me a lot of points that year! :)

      Good luck in the homestretch!

        Thanks!
        I’m on the East Coast too, and I have no idea how or why I became a Canucks fan. Although I have a feeling it might have something to do with the funny names thing :D

    Brad Richards looks a lot like Andy Murray the tennis player in that picture.

    Subtle dig: To make up for the choices of Pavel Datsyuk and Pekka Rinne. Hard to believe with some of the savvy choices I made- I gaffed horrifically on those two.

    Well, Eric Staal has two points so far in the Caps/Canes game, so as of right now I’m tied for first place! Yay! I will enjoy this until tomorrow’s Flyers/Jets game where everyone will score like a billion goals and throw the standings into complete disarray.

    52. Ehhhhh.

    Apparently being a fan for 10 years doesn’t get you squat. I can’t even remember my selections anymore, but obviously they were terrible. : (
