Welcome back for the last time this year, check out all the final results and standings of the 2017 PEFFL season.
Here we are again, back to see the final PEFFL standings of the year. Before we get into that, lets have a quick review of the Week 17 action.
Week 17 saw 21 lineups submitted with only ten breaking 100 points.
Week 17 has historically been one of the hardest of the year. Teams begin resting starters for the playoffs and you may miss out on using same players that you had been saving for the end of the year.
If you went through your list of used players and compared them to the top 50 (or 100) scorers at their positions, you'd be surprised who you still have left to use. For instance, I was saving Todd Gurley and had planned on using him several different times and opted for someone else each time, and guess who I didn't get to use at all this season, seeing as how he didn't play the final week.... that's right I didn't even use the #1 running back in fantasy this season.
High scores for Week 17 are:
1. Bernie Pleskoff - Jameis and JUJU led the way for Bernie to win the final week with a 144 and make a push up the standings in the final week.
2. Gayle Flanagin - Gayle finished in the money for the first time this season, coming in second with with a 140.5 led by Matt Staffords big game.
While we are at it, Gayle was one of the finalists in the Elimination Pool, along with Nick F, Joe M and Christos. Since only one other person beat Gayle this week and it wasn't one of these three, Gayle becomes the first winner of the PEFFL Elimination Pool. The next closest score of the remaining people was 106.
The biggest movers of the week are:
Mark Caruso - 6 spots, 23 to 17
Brian Barger - 5 spots, 18 to 13
Carlos Figueroa - 5 spots, 26 to 21
Alas, none of us finished in the money and being the biggest mover in Week 17, is just a little too late.
Before getting into the final standings and the winner, here are the people that averaged the most points at each position this year:
Only five people this year didn't get any penalty points:
Mark Caruso (I mean as Commissioner, I shouldn't tho right?)
So thank you to the four of you for that... good job!
Without further ado, let's reveal the final standings.
As you can see below (unless you're blind) Joe M is our winner and the first ever repeat champion in PEFFL. Joe was in first place for 13 of the 17 weeks and never fell lower than 4. He fell out of first in week 3 but regained the top spot in week 7 and never looked back.
Coming in second is first year participant and newcomer Bernie Pleskoff. Bernie started off in 11th place, than immediately jumped up to the top five and retained his top five status until Week 16 when he fell to 6th, but was able to rally and jump back up into the two spot.
Dan Diorio finished in third, up one spot from his finish in fourth last season. Dan started hot in 6th place, but fell to 35th by week 5. Dan was able to put together probably the most impressive run this season, moving up 32 spots in twelve weeks.
Mauricio S finishes in the fourth spot. Through thirteen weeks, his highest position was 12th back in week 3 and was able to finally crack the top ten in week 14.
Christos rounds out the top five, after spending 12 weeks of the season in the top ten. Christos maintained the second spot for two weeks (15, 16) before falling to five in the final week of the year.
Rounding out the money spots are:
6. Jason Aberli
7. John Amendolia
8. Allen Merlino
9. Gayle Flanagin
10. Nick Fererri
Twenty-two of the fifty-two participants this year were able to win some kind of money. At least thirteen people won back their buy-in.
Before signing out for the season, I have to say thank you very much to everyone that helped make this a successful season. I look forward to having you all back next year. I'll be working on some minor changes this off season to perfect some this league. I'm excited to grow even more next season.
Below is the listing of what everyone has won this year, please send me your paypal information and I will get you the money asap.
