The Dallas Armadillos have captured the 2018 FFL-GOO points championship, coming from behind on the final weekend to overtake Keystone and win the points trophy by a 25-point margin.
Dallas’ 1,354 is the all-time highest single-season point total in the league’s 27-year history, besting the 1,335 point season the Blizzard had in 2013.
This is the Armadillos’ third points championship, all of those coming in the past 5 seasons. DAL co-owner Sam McClain also has one previous points championship as owner of the LA Riot! in 1992 (in 1992 the points champ scored 843 points for the season).
Keystone will need to send away both of the trophies this year. The top-seeded Longfellows took the upset loss in the Fantasy Bowl last week, and lost the points race after holding the top position for a total of 9 weeks in 2018.
In another notable first, the Philadelphia Griffins finished last in total points. That is the first time ever the Griffins have finished last in points. That leaves the Longfellows as the only remaining franchise who has never finished at the bottom in annual points.
Scoring in fantasy and the NFL in general is up this year. Ironically the BOS Wildcats finished with the exact same total points — 1,099 — in the past two years. In 2017 that total was good for 2nd place. This year, that’s a 4th-place finish. The Griffins’ low point total (785) is also the highest point total ever posted by a last-place team.
