Playoff Fantasy Football
Ok, I'm watching my Broncos getting pasted and I'm thinking that since all of our favorite teams are now out of the playoff except Ober's Steelers (sorry, RoD doesn't count since his Eagles will choke next week) why not play another game to make it interesting?
This is open to everyone, not just those of us who played fantasy or survival football this year. To play, just post your team on this thread before the start of the playoff game next Saturday.
Basically the rules are close to what we were playing in fantasy football. Everyone picks a QB, 2 RB's, 2 WR's, 1 TE, 1 K, and one defense from any of the remaining teams left in the playoffs. You can pick them all from one team, or mix and match from multiple teams, doesn't matter. Each week your players give you points based on how well they do.
Heres the catch though, the team you pick now will stick with you the entire playoffs and the winner is whoever has the most combined points after the Super Bowl. So in other words, not only do you have to figure out which players are the best, but you also need to figure out which teams will last the longest in the playoffs. Peyton Manning might be the best QB, but he's not going to do you any good the last two weeks if you think the Patriots are gonna beat the Colts next week. Likewise, if you think the Steelers are gonna win it all you might want to pick a lot of Steelers, but if they lose next week you're screwed.
Heres the scoring I'll have set up. I'm not worrying about negative points like fumbles and interceptions, and I'm gonna try to make it not so QB dominant by making QB touchdowns less and other player yardage more. All this is definately open to change if anyone wants to make it more or less complicated.
QB: 1 pt 25 yards trowing, 3 pt TD throwing, 1 pt 10 yards rushing, 6 pt TD rushing
WR, RB, TE: 1 pt 10 yards, 6 pt TD
K: 3 pts FG, 1 pt XP
Defense: 1 pt sack, 2 pts fumble/interception, 6 pts TD
All stats rounded down.
Also, I'm a little worried with us picking so many players we just might all get the same team, in which case we'll knock it down to just 1 running back and 1 receiver a piece. So list your favorite RB/WR first and we'll cut the second one if need be.
my team wont choke till the nfc champ game, ass :P
>sorry, RoD doesn't count since his Eagles will choke next week
SO TRUE, then RoD will owe me $20 AGAIN
> SO TRUE, then RoD will owe me $20 AGAIN
I love how everytime someone even THINKS the word Eagles, you post this! It's fresh and hilarious and I'm sure RoD will get around to paying you very soon! Also, shut the hell up!
> they wont choke
I want Terrell Owens to show up on his gimpy ankle ala Curt Schilling and lead Philly to victory. That way the 2004 MLB season and 04-05 NFL seasons can be known as "The Year of the Ankle"
lmfao, we dont even need to. I dont owe him 20 bucks, but i will if phi doesnt make it into the SB.
>Also, shut the hell up!
yes sir :(
Ok, now that the next round is settled, time to make my picks:
WR: Wayne, Ward
RB: Bettis, Dunn
I've been wanting to try this, but I'm really new with Fantasy Football. How do I know what players are to match with:
Is there a list I choose from? I'd really enjoy losing at this game! lol, perhaps I'll improve :)
TE: Chad Lewis
K: Vinatieri, Adam
> WR: T.O.
First off, you didn't pick 2. Second, he's not even playing.
>> Is there a list I choose from? I'd really enjoy losing at this game! lol, perhaps I'll improve :)
Do you mean like this? http://www.superbowl.com/playoffs/schedule
I think I'll make my team tonight. Can more then one person use the same guy?
I hope so, since it wouldn't be really fair for PJ to get first pick just because he posted first.
WR: Burress, Harrison
RB: Bettis, James
RoD, you need another running back.
Yes, you can definately pick the same players as others, but try to make a team thats different from others by at least 2 players for obvious reasons.
To help everyone out I'll make a list of the available players when I get home tonight.
