With a little over a month left in the 2016 Yahoo fantasy golf season, things are now “getting serious”. This week’s tournament, the Wyndham Championship, will probably not make or break any teams so I’ll have to look to future tournaments to make a big move.
Updated Fantasy Golf League Standings
I have been infrequently chronicling my season in two Yahoo fantasy golf leagues: Hackers Inc. and The Dunes 18 Go Low. They both started out with 40+ players, but because Hackers Inc. is an elimination league it has fallen to just a dozen teams remaining.
Here are the standings through Week 31.
|League||Winter (rank)||Spring (rank)||Summer (rank)||Total (rank)|
|Hackers Inc.||2003 (2)||1817 (12)||1119 (2)||4939 (1)|
|Dunes 18||1927 (4)||1725 (11)||1001 (6)||4653 (1)|
Since I last posted on June 22 at the end of the Spring session, I have moved up in the overall rankings by a few spots. However, my lead in both leagues is very fragile (I’m leading by 1 point in Hackers, and by 16 points in The Dunes). This means I have no real room for error during the remaining five tournaments.
The Wyndham Championship 2016
As I mentioned earlier, this week should not shake things too much. I say this because the top eight golfers are all available for a rostering in the A-, B-, and C-Lists. From the first group, I’ve got Ryan Moore and Rickie Fowler. From the second group, I have Patrick Reed and Hideki Matsuyami, with Jim Furyk and Brandt Snedeker in reserve. For the last group, I have Bill Haas and Jon Rahm.
Chances are that players from each of the groups will make the cut, and I would say that there’s a good chance I have at least one top-three player on my roster this week.
I’ll check back in at the end of the season or right before if things get interesting heading into the third week of September.
