2012 started off slow for the Transcendent Sun Runners as I had a 2-3 record after 5 games. Then, everything clicked and I reeled off 8 straight wins to finish the regular season 10-3, with the best record in the league! I had the best of both worlds: the highest offensive production (averaging 97 points a game) and the lowest points against (just 77 points a game). Obviously, I can only take credit for the former while the latter is sheer luck. But I'm okay with that!
For the season, my real find was Bucs RB Doug Martin. I picked him solely on the thesis that he would see a lot of carries and would be a steady starter, but I wasn't expecting him to be one of the most productive backs in the league. Picking up R.G.III in a late round (as my third QB, actually) just in case he ended being another Cam Newton worked out astonishingly well. DeMaryius Thomas & A.J. Greene gave me my best wide receiver tandem since I started fantasy football a few years back. I adopted a new strategy this year regarding D/ST. Instead of trying to find the "best" one and sticking with it unless they were up against an extremely high-powered offence, this time I reversed my focus. Instead of trying to find a good defense, each week I identified the worst offensive teams in the league and picked up whatever defence they happened to be playing; it's worked like a charm, as I exploited sure-fire failures like Ryan Lindley quarterbacking in Arizona. The only major draft pick I made that didn't work out was Aaron Hernandez at TE because he got injured early; I managed to get by with some average replacements, but now that he's healthy I'm putting him back in the line-up for the playoffs.
I once again have the top seed in the playoffs; hopefully, unlike previous years, I can ride regular season success into playoff success.
