I'm not sure how it's happened, but it has.
Otis, G-Rob and The Luckbox (that's me) are all above .500 ten weeks into the fantasy football season and all have a legitimate shot to make the playoffs.
Doesn't sound like a big deal? Well, let's take a look back at history. In the past 5 seasons, our three teams have a collective 4 playoff appearances and no Super Bowl crowns. We have a collective record of 89-104-3. We have a total of 5 winning seasons among us.
Of course, Otis does a lot to bring that total down. All I'll say about his career fantasy football record is that his only winning season is the year we played XFL Fantasy Football. I'm serious. He won the Super Bowl.
But this year, the three of us are bunched at the top of the Carolina Division. I'm at 8-2 and Otis and G-Rob are both at 6-4. If the playoffs started this week, G-Rob and I would both be in the playoffs. Otis trails G-Rob by just two points for the final playoff spot and both of them trail the 3rd place team by a game.
Of course, there's still 4 regular season weeks left for something to go wrong. The only thing guaranteed is that at least one of us will be in the playoffs this year. Which sure beats last year when we were a combined 15-26-1!
