So I am now down by 1.39 points to somebody also making the playoffs. I have 1 IDP left who will almost certainly give me the win. If I do end up winning, I will be 9-4 and have the 3 seed. However, the 6 seed has Drew Brees, who undoubtedly torches the Bucs week 14, Mark Ingram, Mike Evans, Robert Woods, Joe Mixon... Basically a team poised to score a bunch week 14. Add to that that if I were to beat him, I would go on to face in week 15 the 2 seed, who has Gurley AND Mahomes. If I were to bench my player, effectively choosing to loose, I would be 8-5 and be the 5 seed. The 4 seed has Newton or Goff, Michael THomas and Davante Adams, Chris Carson, and not a lot else. While those WR are very strong, the rest isn't exactly terror inducing. Add to that the 1 seed who I would play next is kind of cut and pasting his team week to week, and not very strong at all either... Do I PURPOSELY lose week 13 to go 8-5? It goes against every instinct I have but honestly the road from the 5 seed looks far more favorable than that of the 3. On the other hand, I could have a great or awful week next week, week 15, etc and it totally not matter, and then I forever added a loss to my record. What say you, Outlaws?
