Fantasy Football Guillotine League - Week 1 Execution

On the eve of the NFL kicking off their 100th season with the Chicago Bears hosting the Green Bay Packer, 17 of us Fantasy Football Fanatics got together to draft 14 rounds, Guillotine style!

It was a LONG draft, but even in round 14 John Ross (7/158/2) and Phillip Dorsett (4/95/2) were drafted. Of course, neither owner started either wide receiver!

Heading into the Monday Night Doubleheader, this is what the bottom of the standings looked like:
  • SurvivalOfTheFittest - 40.94 (3 to play)
  • Kizlow Bros - 46.14 (2 to play)
  • Big Naturals - 58.86 (1 to play)
  • Keithy Biceps - 64.20 (1 to play)
  • Return of the JD - 64.44 (2 to play) 
SurvivalOfTheFittest relied on Duke Johnson and Tyrell Williams to save his season.

The Kizlow Bros got multiple touchdowns from DeAndre Hopkins and took advantage of Latavius Murray's vulture TD to save their season.

Big Naturals was hoping the Saints would double team Hopkins, leaving Will Fuller open all day and some how survived despite just two catches for 69 yards and Kenny Stills catching that deep fourth quarter TD from Deshaun Watson.

After the Saints beat the Texans, in one of the more entertaining finishes to a football game we will witness all season, and the Raiders won their last, first, home game at the Coliseum against the Broncos, this is what the final Week 1 Standings looked like:
