  • Week one I have the Bills. Nice way to track the game, but on my screen I'm the only one who has made a pick so far. Does it keep the picks secret until after the games are played?

    Yes. On the yahoo format you will only see your pick until the deadline time has passed, then you will see all of the picks. So, not actually until the games are played, just until the pick deadline.

    You will, however, be able to see all of the previous picks for everyone.

    I went Bills because the only thing I'm certain of without potentially burning through better teams is the Jets are going to be historically awful, while the Bills will be mediocre.

    That's why I went with the rams this week. Probably the best chance to win all year. They play all the really bad teams on the road.

    Someone had Houston and one had no pick, but I believe it's a 2 strike and you're out rule in this league. At least that's what I understood

  • Week 1 Update:

    "My Great Pick Set" and "My Sensational Pick Set" both took their 1st strike of the year...not sure who they are as they didn't update their name!!

    Jayneseahawk also took a strike having picked Houston.

    Week 2: Yahoo pick distribution

    Oakland: 51.85% - People gonna be picking against the Jets early and often this year.
    Your Seahawks: 16.63% - Hawks in a get right week against the 49ers. We've dominated them since the '13 NFC Champ Game :lol: :49ersmall:
    Arizona: 10.58% - A bit risky for me with DJ out, and a road game, but the Colts looked absolutely horrible last week.
    Baltimore: 9.62% - I hate picking divisional games, and am higher on the Browns than most, I'm waiting to dip my toes into the AFC North until later.
    Tampa Bay: 2.64% - I actually thought the Bears played well enough last week to hold on picking against them with a team that hasn't played yet.
    Carolina: 1.68% - My sneaky pick of the week if you don't want to take the RRRRAIDERS. Bills in tank mode, but just good enough to beat the Jets last week.

    Go Hawks!

  • I hate picking NFCW teams. Who wants to cheer for our key opponents? That's why I pick them early in the season when the wins seem less critical. (Only fooling myself, I know)

    It took overtime, but the Cards kept me alive for another week.

  • I had the Chiefs last week and early on I was hanging by the seat. But the Chiefs pulled away in the 2nd half so that was good. This week I'm going with the Steelers.

  • Week 2 Update:

    Followthelegion and Milehighhawk both took their first strike since they didn't make a pick this week. They are still in the game though, so don't forget to make your picks ladies and gents.

    Week 3 Preview:
    Green Bay (28% yahoo): The Packers are a 10 point favorite at Home vs the TDless Bengals. This looks like a no brainer, but I worry a bit about the Packers injury situation. Still should be an easy and stress free week if you go this route.
    New England (24%): Patriots are playing the Texans at home, and should roll. I don't like the 14.5 point spread, but feel confident in taking the Patriots here.
    Miami (19%): This is as good a time to pick Miami as any if you want to get them out of the way. The Jets are terrible and I don't think it matters if they are home or away at this point in time.
    Pittsburgh (11%): Steelers should roll the Bears, but I'll repeat again, the Steelers are always good for 1 road stinker a year, so I hate picking them away.
    Denver (5%): Are people jumping on the Bronco's hype train after their big win?? They look good, and the Bills don't. The line is only at 3 points, and Vegas is pretty smart, so I might take a pass on this one.
    Philadelphia (2%): The Eagles are good, the Giants aren't, but this is a divisional game and the Giants have enough good players to pull the upset.

    **Crazy pick of the week if you want to take a chance on a garbage team**
    Cleveland: More people have taken the Colts, but I think Cleveland is the better team...The Jets are coming to the Browns in 2 weeks so might be best to wait until week 5 if you want to roll the dice on last years anti-survivor champs.

    I was thinking along similar lines as you. But looks like the Colts are better. I bet some fantasy owner is out there that is pissed because he is going to lose to someone starting Jacoby Brissett.
