Here are the results of the DFFL News
award winners for 2012.
Most Valuable Player
– For the first time since 1992 we have co-MVP’s. This
year’s award will be shared by Drew Brees
(Cosa Nostra) and Tom Brady
(New Orange Order).
Each player ended the regular season with 153 fantasy points. Brees, the #9 overall selection threw for 3674 yards and 31
TD’s and scored at least 11 fantasy points in 9 of his 12 starts, while Brady – picked 6th overall produced for
3537 yards, 25 TD’s and ran in another 3 himself. Brady had at least 8 points every week until his last start.
Finishing a close third was yet another former MVP in Peyton Manning
(Mean Machines) the 22nd player chosen, Manning threw for 3510 yards with 29 TD passes, good for 148 fantasy
Valuable Player - Ryan Mathews (Cosa Nostra) wins
this years Ashley Lelie Award in dominating fashion.
The 16th selection overall was a worthy LVP candidate by amassing a grand total of 6 fantasy points in his 8 starts. Finishing
a close second was DeShaun Jackson (Carolina Copperheads) selected
45th overall Jackson played a key role in the Copperheads
dismal season producing 7 fantasy points in his 7 starts. Also receiving consideration were Titus Young (Carolina
Copperheads) and Vick Ballard (Cosa Nostra)
each with 7 points in their 6 starts.
of the Year - Robert Griffin
III (Cold Filtered Weasels) the 95th pick in the draft walked away with this years award by scoring
92 points in his 10 starts for the #2 playoff seed. Also receiving votes were his Weasel teammate Doug Martin 79 point in 12 starts, taken 47th overall. Andrew Luck (Section 8 Gerbils) did not make enough fantasy
starts to merit ROY consideration
Late Round Steal – Randall
Cobb (Jerk Store) by scoring 40 fantasy points over 7 his starts Cobb was one of the few highlights in the
Jerk’s otherwise dismal season. Cobb was selected with the first pick in round 12 / 133rd overall. The other players
selected in the 12th round were - in order: Santonio Holmes, Jason Snelling, David Wilson, Alex Henery, Brandon Pettigrew,
Detroit Defense, NY Giants Defense, Brandon LaFell, Robert Turbin, Rueben Randle and Danny Amendola Note: Mikel LeShoure (Sloppy Second Kickers)
did not qualify for this years award since he was originally drafted by another team 159th overall, but was later released.
Round Draft Bricks – There are a couple of players that we considered brick worthy. LeSean McCoy (Carolina Copperheads)
selected 4th overall McCoy came through with a grand total of 26 fantasy points in his 9 starts. Also receiving recognition
is Chris Johnson – auto drafted 7th overall Johnson ended up
38 points in 9 starts for the Sloppy Second Kickers – with 28 of those points coming in 2 games. Joining them
were #8 pick Darren McFadden (Cheeseheads from Hell)
who put up just 13 points in 5 starts before his annual injury, #10 selection
Andre Johnson (FTC / Cheeseheads from Hell) who posted all of 25 points in 11 starts, as well as #12
pick Matt Forte (Jerk Store) with 31 points from
10 appearences - hardly first round-worthy production.
Agent pick up of the Year – No winner – no one had the
impact of past winners such as Peyton Hillis in 2010 and Victor Cruz last season. Mikel LeShoure was probably the closest
thing (39 points in 8 starts for Sloppy Second Kickers)
Sentimental Value Award

(Carolina Copperheads) and DeAngelo Williams (Gamblers) the proud recipients of
this year's Chuck Evans Award, given annually to the player(s) who are drafted

Blindfold Award – This award is given to the player who makes the
most of their single start – winner: Alex Smith (Jerk Store)
one of the rare bright spots for the Jerk’s as Smith nailed it in week # 5 by turning in a stat line of: 18 of 24, for
303 yards and 3 TD – good for a 17 point performance in his only DFFL appearance of 2012.
