You have made it through all the injuries, the game time decisions, the tough matchups, the crazy bye weeks and the moment we have all been waiting for has arrived… It’s the Fantasy Football Finals!

Only 2 teams remain and this is the time where the tough decisions make all the difference.

Fantasy Football Finals - One Shot One Opportunity

Better player with a tough matchup vs lesser player with better matchups, top QB vs tough Defense or mid-level QB with the amazing matchup, top QB in a bad weather game or ok you get it….

In my final fantasy football blog of the season I will go over some matchups that could derail some fantasy studs and I will suggest some possible waiver wire gems that could convert guts into glory!

Here are some players that I’m guessing are on a number of teams in the finals that I think may struggle this week due to bad matchups:

One of the benefits a General Motors employee has is the ability to share the GM Supplier Discount with their friends and acquaintances.

This is done through the GM Supplier Discount for Friends program in which eligible GM employees can offer a great vehicle discount to one friend or acquaintance per month.

What makes this program even better is that friends of GM Employees can combine the supplier discount with current GM incentives on select 2014 and 2015 vehicles for even greater savings (see current offers below)

So what do you need to do if you’re a qualified GM Employee who would like to give the GM Supplier Discount to a friend?

November has welcomed us in with a chilly embrace (although knowing Michigan, we’re bound to have at least one more 85 degree headscratcher).

This month houses some pretty important dates: Black Friday for the bargain-hunters, Veterans Day to honor our soldiers, and November 18th, which we all know as being National Only-37-Days-Left-Till Christmas Day.

The Heart of Thanksgiving

But nestled comfortably in this month is one of our most time-honored traditions: Thanksgiving Day.

Many families will gather together around the table that day, sharing stories and laughs through mouthfuls of turkey, stuffing, and all the other staples of the holiday. It’s during these moments that we share in the company of our relatives, both loved and estranged (everyone has an Uncle Eddie in their family.)

Believe it or not, these moments are what make up this wonderful holiday.

Without some of these unexpected fantasy studs I am sure there are a lot of fantasy owners out there that would be in big trouble.
