This column chronicles the ups and downs of the team drafted by me and three friends to compete in the FFPC’s Terminator contest, in which one player from our roster must be eliminated each week. The first installment outlined the tournament rules. The appeal of a best-ball league is pretty simple: Your optimal weekly lineup is automatically picked for you, so there’s never regret about leaving a guy on the bench or any lingering laments if a starter with a juicy matchup tweaks a hammy in the first quarter and fails to return to the game. For the high-strung lazy person who constantly second-guesses himself, it really is a beautiful format. When your team does well.
