Week 15 Fantasy Football Bad Beats: League of glorious losers

The wackiness of Week 15 left lots of fantasy managers scratching their heads, and it left Judge Andy Behrens wondering if anybody actually emerged victorious. Well, it seems like our friend Mike and some of his fellow league members did - but in the most backwards way possible. Between the highest point total teams finishing in the bottom four, and some of the lowest scorers securing playoff spots, it's only fitting that we stay on brand for Week 15 and highlight the absurdity of the Sundae Funday Boyz league.

ANDY BEHRENS: Oh, hello. It's that time again. This is the segment that you don't want to appear in. No one wants to appear in. I barely want to be here. This is where we go through the most heartbreaking fantasy losses from the week past. This, of course, is Fantasy Bad Beats.


Here's the thing about week 15. I refuse to believe that anyone won. I realize that some of you had Kelce or Taylor or Aaron Rodgers, and maybe you think you won. No one won. I don't believe it. I refuse to believe it.

- Le-hoo-se-her.

ANDY BEHRENS: I personally don't know anyone who won a week 15 match-up, and I know a lot of people who play fantasy. I just simply don't think it happened. Maybe you lost because you had Brady or Kyler, Mixon or whoever, but you definitely lost. Everybody lost. How can we even talk about bad beats in a week without any winners?

- Nobody wins them all.

ANDY BEHRENS: We can't. So, folks, let me direct your attention to a very special league. This is just a league of glorious losers. I don't know that I've ever seen anything like it.

- Every newspaper in the country has picked us to finish last.

ANDY BEHRENS: Let's take a quick look at the Sunday Funday boys. This was sent into us by Mike. And this league's season leader-- season leader in points-- came in last. Came in dead last. And, not only that, but the top four scoring teams in this league all missed the playoffs.

- I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

ANDY BEHRENS: Folks, I have never seen it. I thought I had seen everything there was to see in fantasy, but no. Turns out I have not. I've seen a top scorer have bad luck before. That happens occasionally. They'll miss the playoffs. They will, very rarely, finish in last place. But we will never, ever see all four top scorers finish last.

And the guy who had the highest score in this league was not, like, just barely the top scorer. They cleared anybody else by, like, 50 points. And look at, presumably, Mike himself sitting in playoff position, like 200 points behind the field. This is incredible. It simply does not happen.

And I don't think that I have ever seen a better illustration of why top scoring teams need to win something for the effort, right? It doesn't have to be a playoff spot, although that's nice if you can stick the top scoring team in the bottom playoff stop. That's fine. But they should at least win the league feedback. Something. Anything.

- I want my $2!

ANDY BEHRENS: I am so sorry Vante the Diggs. You deserved better. Fantasy itself has failed you. Remember, folks, when things take a bad turn in your playoff semifinals, think of your friends at Fantasy Football Live. Hit us up using the hashtag #FFLBadBeats.
