CCO Fantasy Baseball League – Week 20

Last week and it is a position round … Twelve wins is where the playoffs are at with three teams tied and one 12-8 team (Aquas de Marco Billy) on the outside looking in. BigJonLilJon’s is one game back but even with a win this week against Aquas de Marco, he will still not make the top eight. So we are down to nine teams for eight spots and with six teams clinched, it is three teams fighting for the final two spots.

  1. 07Greydigger’s Crushers – Win and he is the #1 seed, lose and he could fall to 3rd

  5. Northside Bleacher Bums – Win and can move up to 4th, lose and could fall to 6th

The transaction wire stayed slow with 18 free agent pick-ups. Some teams are trying to make the playoffs while others are trying to shore up their bench with the playoffs just 1 week left.


Weeks 10 and 20 are the same match-up.
Weeks 11 and 21 are the same match-up.

So in weeks 10 and 21 we will be doing a position round. 1 vs 2, 3 vs 4, etc down to 19 vs 20.

The tiebreaker for standings is total points.

The league is for public viewing. Here are two shortcuts to take you to the league site on ESPN.
