Loser Trophy Changes Your Fantasy Football League

You don't want your name on your fantasy football leagues loser trophy.
This season I unfortunately understand what it feels like to be in the running for my fantasy football league’s loser trophy. And take it from me- it’s not something you want to experience. Ours is called “The Loudini” and it’s the first time I can remember that I may actually end up on it. To make matters worse, I won my league last year and could be the first owner in our league’s history to go from first to worst. Not good.
However, I also realize now first hand that a loser trophy changes the dynamic of your league forever. No guy wants his name on that piece of hardware for all eternity and each owner will do whatever it takes to make sure it doesn’t happen. I guarantee that everyone in your league will fight to the bitter end even if teams have been stuck in the cellar all season. I know I have.
So as this regular season comes to an end and I desperately scratch and claw for the last playoff spot in my league, I also pray to the fantasy gods that I will not end up on “The Loudini”.
I don’t think my pride could handle it.

NFL Power Rankings – Top 5

League MVP?
1. Houston Texans (9-1) –It pains me to put them here because I still don’t fully believe it, but they keep on winning. Arian Foster is the reason they’re above Atlanta.

2. Atlanta Falcons (9-1) — They pulled a win out this week even with Matt Ryan’s 5 INTs. The Falcons look like they’ll have a healthy Roddy White and Julio Jones going forward and thus are #2.

3. New England Patriots (7-3) — The offense is a fine tuned engine once again but that engine lost its Gronk. We’ll see if the Pats can stay at #3 without him in the line-up for 4-6 weeks.

4. Green Bay Packers (7-3) — Clearly the Pack isn’t fully back but Rodgers continues to get it done by just enough. They’re still banged up and the loss of Greg Jennings is still killing them. Just too many weapons still with Cobb and Nelson to keep them out of the top five.

5. Denver Broncos (7-3) –Peyton Manning as league MVP and comeback player of the year? Perhaps. As long as the defense keeps playing well the Broncos are going to be a force in the league.
