Is it just tonight's game or any game this week?



Why would anyone pick anything but a QB?


A great running day is a bad QB day.

And a WR will not likely have more yards then a QB.  



I think you need to factor that in if you want more play.  

Yeah, as I said in the rules, I am considering DQ-ing QBs for Monday Night games or days when there is only one game, but on Sundays there are plenty of QBs to go around, especially with only two players so far. (Field-goal kickers also rack up the yards, and some QBs can have dismal games, and much fewer yards than a star RB or WR. But again, most games are on Sunday, when there is enough QBs for MANY players, if we have them). Thanks for posting.


How often has a running back had the most yards (when you include the numbers of passing yards QBs throw) in a single week of games?  Once or twice maybe?


2000 yards rushing is an amazing feat in a season.


2000 yards passing is awful.

I'm just trying to generate something fun to make the season a little more interesting for the membership here, and as this is still in the early stages of the season, we can certainly tweak it to satisfy those who would like to play, to make it as fair as possible, (which I alluded to in the rules page). As I said, I was contemplating making QBs void on Monday Nights, (and the other very few single game days), as I am already aware that QBs generally have the most yardage.

That would solve the problem you bring up, and Sundays there are plenty of QBs to go around for everyone. We could also have each week count as a single game-day, meaning that if someone picked a Monday Night QB, they could not pick again until the next Monday, and make the "day" week Monday thru Sundays, with a new void list/week starting each Monday. A good FG Kicker can rack up the yards in a game, too, as can multi-position players.


I understand that.  The fact that I actually responded with what I notice was an issue with how it was set up showed my interest in this game, except I had no one last night to pick to have a chance to win. 




p.s


I got Kyle Orton-Denver

Knicks: Irving, Drummond, Marcus Morris, S. Muhammad, C. Lee, Sullinger, Hield, M. Chriss , V. Carter, T. Zeller, N. Cole, T. Prince, Livio Jean-Charles, Tyler Ulis, N. Collison

Are punters eligible?  ;) 

I sort of get wdleehi's point; I can't imagine there will be any week where a position other than QB wins this thing.  Every week, QBs throw for 300+ yards; has any RB or WR done that?  Even if you counted returned punts and kickoffs, I doubt you'd ever see a non-QB win.

That said, if it turns into "best QB wins", there's no real harm in that (although I sort of like Redz' idea.  Week 1, QBs; Week 2, WRs; Week 3, RBs, etc.  It would kind of mix things up.)

No, but FG kickers are. I took Wdleehi's comments to heart, (and I had intimated having to do something with the QB problem in the original rules), and changed the rules to being able to pick one game a week per player, which takes care of that problem, (I think).

Here's the updated rules:

Rules Update:


So here's the updated "deal", as it were:

I'm going to void (ignore) last night's game, (as there were tweaks needed to be made), and revise the rules - the "Game Week" will run from Tuesday through Monday, and the new week/void list will begin each Tuesday, meaning you can choose one game/week, starting Tuesday thru Monday night, new picks can be made after midnight Monday night, or 12:00:01 AM Tuesday morning.

If you want to pick a QB/player for a Monday Night Football game, then you can't choose in a Sunday game, etc., (pretty understandable, I think). The calendar resets after midnight Monday night. Therefor the "official" first game will begin this Sunday, September 11, (let me know if any problems).

Since it's a once-a-week thing now, I'm thinking we can make the booty equal seven times the number of players, as that would equal the same payout of a PAPOUG or PAPTBG game, and hopefully entice more people to play. I think this will be a fair system and one that will give everybody plenty of players to choose from.

The Void List will still be "seven" days long, but each day is represented by an actual week, meaning if you pick a player for your first game and win with that player, you are not eligible to pick that same player again until week eight, (seven day-weeks after). This will also make it possible for others to get the hot players/QBs, and avoid any monopolies.
