Only 2 teams in the 128 in the playoffs have more points than I do but I have 6 losses because I keep getting everyone else's best weeks against me.

Oh well.

I don't always play the best players, I look at what my opponents tendencies have been for the last 3-4-5 weeks and build a team to compete with that - so I may not always get the highest possible scores every week, but I tend to win.

That strat does not work in the playoffs though, as you cannot see team tendencies unless they are in your regular season bracket.

This year it was 4 weeks of being 4th or 5th best in the division that week but getting matched against one in the top 3 or 4. Just really bad luck regarding match-ups really, getting others' best weeks kind of a thing. Stuff happens.

I do what you mention as well but likely to a lesser extent.

So this matchup likely determines if I make the playoffs or not.....

Zibanejad-4, Point-4, Matthews-4, Kane-4, Graves-3, Heiskanen-4, Merzlikins-4
vs
Mackinnon - 3, Stamkos -3 or less, Pettersson -3, Pastrnak -3, Theodore - 3, Pietrangelo - 4, Rittich - 4
