With another fantasy campaign winding its way to conclusion, there are those who will be making final preparations for victory. Others will sit and wait for the end to determine their fate. The rest of us will reflect on the past few months, since there's nothing better to do as we were eliminated from prize contention long ago. You may think your team is the only one that sucks, but trust me when I say you're definitely not alone.

The first half may have promised good tidings but reality, a couple injuries, and some bad breaks spoiled the momentum. You may have entered the shortened season as a defending champion or a successful veteran but will gladly walk out with your pride intact. There's no shame finishing third. Or fourth. Or even fifth and beyond. Because the owner who receives the most flak is the one who finished *just* out of the winner's circle. So, yeah, way to go, second-place dude.
