There is no such thing as garbage time in fantasy football. Even if the real game is out of reach, every last run, pass and catch could make the difference between a thrilling win and a heartbreaking loss.

So this is where this occasional feature comes in. Every so often, I'll let you the readers chime in with their greatest (or worst) experiences with those last-second fantasy football wins and losses.

In the past few weeks, I've definitely seen some instances where games were won and lost by those last-minute yards. For instance, those in point-per-reception leagues had to be on the edge of their seats when Brian Westbrook caught just about every Donovan McNabb dumpoff pass in last night's Eagles-Cowboys game. What looked to be a respectable fantasy performance by Westbrook ended up being a huge outing similar to those put up by Drew Brees, Jamal Lewis and Joseph Addai.

I can tell you from my own personal experience that in the Jets-Bengals game a few weeks ago, I wrapped up a close victory when Chad Pennington completed what was a rather meaningless Hail Mary TD to Jerricho Cotchery to end the game and added a 2-point conversion pass to put a bow on a victory.

And while it's definitely not a meaningless situation, how many of you won or lost a game with Brett Favre's overtime bomb last Monday night against the Broncos?

There are definitely plenty of situations where one seemingly innocuous play late in a game changed your fantasy fortunes. So go right ahead and tell us your "Great Moments in Fantasy Football History."
