In the end, the Tout Wars Daily Championship went down to the same two names who dominated the scene. And Todd Zola and Derek Carty were there again, finishing 1-2 in the eight-team championship last week with Carty squeezing past Zola, 145.35 to 140.6.
Carty rode Jimmy Nelson's 37.5-point performance past the pack, though things were worth of a sweat and nail bite as the final team jockeying occurred. But, to show how close these two exceptional players were, Todd beat Carty overall by 3.2 points, 2341.5 to 2338.3 after 20 weeks of H2H with Carty turning the final tables, beating Lord Z by a total of 1.45 points, 2483.55 to 2482.1 in an incredibly ciose finish where a walk and run would have changed the outcome.
The results among the eight finalists for the last week of play were as follows:
But, the fun is not over with the Touts now going at it again in Fout Wars, named for the former Chargers signal caller, a weekly contest sponsored by our friends at Fantrax. Starting next week, we will be reviewing that contest, and beginning Saturday will be looking at the DFS picks we like for the Sunday slate.
Remember to go to the Tout Wars site for our Friday picks. And, tune into the Tout Wars Hour on the FNTSY network, hosted by me, with Justin Mason and featuring Lord Z every Thursday night at 9 PM ET.
