Joe Kelly beat the rest of the field by 25 fantasy points (more than 4 TDs).  He had the
top scoring player in the pool, Baltimore's rookie RB Jamal Lewis.  Jamal (Pool MVP)
rushed for 338 yards and 4 TDs.  Joe Kelly also had the top scoring TE, Shannon
Sharpe.  Sharpe had 230 receiving yards and 2 TDs for 27 fantasy points.  No other TE
in the Pool had more than 3 fantasy points.  Also on Kelly’s roster was Matt Stover, the
top-scoring kicker with 28 fantasy points.  This was the final year IDPs were used in
the Pool.  Kelly’s 3 IDPs combined for 35 fantasy points (most in the Pool).  He had
linebacker Ray Lewis (SB MVP), who had a TD and 2 interceptions, and defensive
lineman Michael McCrary, who had 6 sacks in the four playoff games.  Both Ray Lewis
and McCrary were the top scorers at their respective positions.  Oddly enough, Joe
Kelly had only 10 combined fantasy points out of his two wide receivers.

The 2000 playoffs began with the ‘Music City Miracle’.  With less than 15 seconds left
in their Wild Card game, Tennessee fell behind after a Buffalo FG.  On the ensuing
kickoff, Frank Wycheck threw a lateral pass to Kevin Dyson and Dyson took it all the
way for the game-winning TD.  The Tennessee Titans went on to win two more playoff
games and eventually reach the Super Bowl.  The four Tennessee playoff games
enabled
J. WILD to roll to the Fantasy Playoff Pool Championship.  J. WILD got 449
yards rushing and 3 TDs from RB Eddie George (Pool MVP) and 209 yards rushing and 3
TDs from his Quarterback, Steve McNair.  His other key Titan was Al Del Greco, the top
scoring kicker with 8 FGs and 8 XPs.   It wasn’t just players from Tennessee though.
J. WILD had the pool's top WR, Minnesota's Randy Moss 315 yards/3 TDs, and his
other RB, Minnesota's Robert Smith, collected 294 yards from scrimmage and a TD.
J. Wild also won despite have 2 position players with zero points.
M.R.I. wins the Fantasy Playoff Pool by 3½ fantasy points, the narrowest margin to
date.  
M.R.I had the top two RBs, Marshall Faulk (Pool MVP), who had 431 yards
from scrimmage with 3 TDs for 48 fantasy points, and Duce Staley, who had 278
from scrimmage with 3 TDs.  Marshall Faulk had the highest salary ever ($12), yet
was selected on more rosters (63) than any other player in the Pool.
 M.R.I. also got
3 TDs and 148 yards receiving from Antonio Freeman, the Pool’s top scoring WR,
and 3 TDs from the Rams’ defense.  In the NFC Divisional Playoff, the Rams’
defense picked off Brett Favre 6x and returned three of them for scores.   The
Rams' defense finished the Pool with 40 fantasy points.  M.R.I. won despite no
fantasy points from his kicker and tight end.  He also lost his QB (Testeverde) after
one week.
In second place was
Owen’s Eleven, who appeared to have taken the Pool lead with
10:29 remaining in the 4th quarter of SB36 on a Patriots defensive TD, but the score
was negated by a Willie McGinest holding penalty.
 The Fantasy Playoff Pool was decided in the 4th Quarter of SB37.  It was a 48-yard
TD pass to the most prolific wide receiver of all-time, Jerry Rice, with 6:14
remaining.  Rice’s TD gave the
BEARDS the Playoff Pool lead over LONN FLEXXX,
which they held on to for the Playoff Pool Championship.  
The
BEARDS used the Bucs’ defense which dominated with 4 TDs in its last five
quarters of play.  In the playoffs, the Bucs’ defense had 11 sacks and forced 12
turnovers in addition to their four scores.  The
BEARDS’ QB, Steve McNair, threw for
532 yards with 3 TD passes and added 3 TDs on the ground.  The
BEARDS receiving
corps of Rice, Amani Toomer and Joe Jurevicius combined for 536 receiving yards/6
TDs.  The
BEARDS also selected the top scoring TE (Wycheck) and kicker
(Gramatica).  Despite the Giants’ 1st round elimination, the BEARDS got significant
production from two Giants.  Toomer (WR) had 136 yards receiving and 3 TDs, while
Tiki Barber (RB) had 177 yards from scrimmage and a TD.  Ironically, the
BEARDS
also benefited from a TD by Tiki’s twin brother Ronde, who had a “pick six” in the
Championship Game for the Bucs’ defense.

(Pool MVP) and RB Jamal Anderson, on the same roster.  Both of those entries finished
in the top three.  Pool Champion
Chris Ditoro had Davis and Anderson, who combined
for 744 yards rushing and 6 touchdowns in the playoffs.  In Ditoro’s WR slots were
