Level 4: The Playoffs

DUO THE OWL: Translate these new phrases from Fantasy Football to English!


It’s playoff time in fantasy football!

Your answer: I was lucky as heck to get into the playoffs. No matter what happens, I had a lot of fun this season!

DUO: Bummer, that’s not what we were looking for. No worries, we will circle back to it at the end!


My team is hitting on all cylinders at the right time.

Your answer: My team has more players on the injury list than active.

DUO: Now we’re talking! Let’s make it two in a row.


There are probably some decent waiver wire pickups I should keep an eye on.

Your answer: Even if there were some decent waiver wire pick-ups, I don’t have the FA budget to pick them up. 

DUO: You’re absolutely right! Boom!


It’s been a pretty predictable year in the NFL and you drafted smart, so your roster depth should set you up for a deep playoff run.

Your answer: The roster I drafted is nowhere close to what it represents today. My playoff placement is nothing more than a combination of sheer luck and good timing. It will be a miracle if I make it past the first round.

DUO: I know this is football, but that’s another SWISH! Keep it up!


My first-round opponent has a pretty good team and is a nice person, if I lose to them, I wouldn’t mind at all.

Your answer: I bet I could figure out where this person parks their car at work and slash all of their tires to send a message prior to this weekend’s matchup.
 
DUO: Split the uprights, because you’re good!


The person who ends up winning the league undoubtedly deserves it.

Your answer: That piece of shit doesn’t deserve a fucking thing. I won't be able to prove it, but that person 100% somehow cheated.

DUO: YES! You’re almost finished!


I had so much fun this season, I am DEFINITELY playing next year!

Your answer: I don’t know what’s more likely at this point, me staying in this league, or swallowing a knife whole.

DUO: EXACTLY the answer we were looking for! Way to go!


One last thing, let’s revisit what you missed!


It’s playoff time in fantasy football!

Your answer: If I don’t win this fucking league my entire life is nothing more than a meaningless waste. I am less of a person and deserve nothing but sadness until my inevitable eternal damnation in the fires of Hell. 

DUO: BINGO!! YOU ARE READY FOR THE PLAYOFFS, BABY!
