Pre-Season Week 3 Fantasy Football Challenge

Submission Deadline: Saturday by 4pm EST (submitted by captain). Kill Picks submitted by everybody except Pokerdonk.

Each team will be using Saturday and Sunday’s NFL games (there are 8 games on Saturday and 2 games on Sunday) to create a fantasy football roster consisting of the following:
1 QB
2 RB
2 WR
1 TE
1 Flex (RB, WR, or TE)
1 K
1 Defense

In an effort to prevent all 3 teams from having the same roster, there will be multipliers based upon the number of teams who select each player.
-If only 1 team selects a player, then that player earns 3x the points
-If 2 teams select a player, then that player earns 2x the points
-If all 3 teams select a player, then that player earns 1x the points

Scoring System:
Passing TDs: 4 points
Rushing or Receiving TDs: 6 points
Pass, Rush, or Receiving 2-point conversions: 2 points
Every 25 yards passing: 1 point
Every 10 yards rushing or receiving: 1 point
Kicker PATs: 1 point
Kicker FGs: 3 points
Defensive Sacks: 1 point
Defensive Turnovers: 2 points
Defensive TDs: 6 points
Defense – Shutout: 10 points
Defense – 1 to 6 points allowed: 7 points
Defense – 7 to 13 points allowed: 4 points
Defense – 14 to 21 points allowed: 2 points
*Note: QB’s can earn points for rush yards, RB’s can earn points for receiving yards, etc.

Kill Picks:
KP1: Pick 8 of the NFL teams and put them in order from highest scoring to lowest scoring. You get 1 point for the first team listed. If the second team’s point total is less than or equal to the first team, you get another point….and so on. I will continue down your list until a team’s point total is higher than the previous team...and then no more points can be earned.
KP2: Total combined passing yards for Robert Griffin III (Was) and Joe Flacco (Balt)

8/23/2014 5:31 PM
Our gray plays for the chiefs too
8/23/2014 6:22 PM
Bah, we thought you'd both go for Peyton...
8/23/2014 6:23 PM
Whoa, someone picked Tony Romo?  On purpose?  You know this isn't a celebrity golf challenge right?

Noted.  When I saw the entry, I figured you didn't pick the NE one, even though he does run tough.

The really funny part? I ALMOST did that...
8/23/2014 8:27 PM
I am correct that New England doesn't play Saturday or Sunday right?
8/23/2014 8:29 PM
Yes, they played yesterday.  On the entry team 1 just wrote Gray and nothing else.  I think its fair to say of the 150-200 running backs that are currently on preseason rosters, Jonas Gray, would not be one of the one's selected.
