How many championships have you won using Draftsharks?

Just curious how successful the owners have been using this site. I play in 2 leagues (CBS w/friends & Antsports) and despite 2004 every year I either won or was in the Top 3.

2001 - Championship (CBS)
2002 - Championship (Antsports)
2003 - Championship (CBS)
2004 - real bad year - had Deuce & Winslow
2005 - 3rd place - would of had a different seed and won a championship if Rex Grossman didnt give me -2 points because I had Palmer on a bye (CBS)
2006 - Lost in the 1st round by Vinces Youngs OT run. If I won that game I would of won my next 2 and won a championship (Antsports)

Seems like every year Im in it to win it on at least one of my leagues

been with DS for 5 or 6 years now,

I know of 4 leagues that I won it all in.

and I am always competing for the prizes.

what I enjoy most about DS is the not following the trend profiles.
Their profiles are objective and insightful.

as long as I am competing I will be reviewing DS information.

Last year a Shark bite cost me a Championship. A supposed sure thing. If I would've stayed with my original lineup and my hunch I'd have the Apex Predators championship.

I expect two championships this year, DS. :wink: At least. Let's make it happen.

3 in 6. Bad luck and injuries in the other 3 which get the best of us.

In my 20 team league (2 leagues of 10 Virtually)...i faced myself in the championship...that was nice...dont worry it wasnt cheating...you have 2 drafts one for each conference...you play the league as a regular 10 teamer during the regular season...and then at the end the top two teams collide...that year it just so happened both my teams were the best team and faced off in the most relaxing championship I've ever had. :)

5th year with DS....

3 championships
5 championship appearances

playoffs virtually every year...in the money virtually every year...I dont remember when I've lost money at fantasy football.

Won my first championship last year. Made several playoffs, but usually I don't have a healthy roster to play.

I've had notoriously bad luck with key player injuries over the last 6 years. Wasn't unusual at all for me to have lost one of or a combo of my #1, #2, #3 picks for significant time if not all season.
Good Grief

I won my first championship in my first year as a DS subscriber (2002) and I've won one more since; I've also had some stacked teams that just ran into terrible head to head luck. The habit I had to get over in the earlier years as a member was picking a "DS Special" team (loaded with DS comeback, breakout, sleeper players). Now I rely on bouncing my own opinions off of the DS writeups and message board members.
I'm just happy to be here.

Two titles, one in a 10-team, TD-only, H2H league (1999), and one in a 12-team, total points, high-performance league (2000). I have been a DS customer from 1999-2001 (4 league-years total, I did the total points league just for the year 2000) & 2005-06 (I took a few years off in the middle there).

The last two years I have been in a 12-teamer, a 10-teamer, and two 8-teamers (all H2H), and am 0-4 in Week 15, despite two regular season #1 seeds (the 12-teamer and one of the 8-teamers), a #2 seed (the other 8-teamer), and a #5 seed (the 10-teamer, so I got about what I deserved that year).

I play in 2 leagues a year and have been using Draftsharks for 5. I've won 4 titles total, out of 10 chances.

40% title conversions, of which I'll attribute about half of my success to Draftsharks and the forums.

18 team league...2 divs of 9 which has been alive and strong for about 12 years.

Won 2 championships with DS, spending most of my time coming in 2nd place (6 times). I've only been out of the money twice since the first year.

I always do just a little rearranging from DS's suggestions, but not much...it's mostly about drafting "who"..."when".

Right now, I am struggling with the Addai and the WP consensus here. I do agree with the Brandon Jacobs consensus.

Still struggling...

Have been with DS for 5 or 6 years now and have been in the money every year except one... but have never won a championship. :x

Not any fault of DS's, I've just had awful luck in championship games.
