No, it’s worse than that. Without the Arbitrary Award I would’ve won Week 9 and used the prize for a JHFA for Week 10. I would’ve squandered the extra COFP on a team that ended up losing by 3 points that week which JHFA would’ve turned into a tie. But JHFA would’ve turned another Week 10 loss into a win. In addition to also having JHFA for Week 14 which would’ve netted me a half win.

I’m tracking how disastrous my poor choice was.

Actual: 128.5-79.5
Hypothetical: 134-74

Live and learn

It’s at least looking promising for next week when The Arbitrary Award turns the Steelers into the Bills.
