So, no one made a thread, and no one talked in the thread much last year, but I'm gonna make one for this year anyway. Maybe I'll try to keep the thread going and get some of you to stick around and chat.

 

Week 1 Matchups

TDs and Beer vs CharismasCheeseheads

Bryant's Beaters vs Mumble's Minions

soonerfreak vs Goon Squad

bguy_1986 vs Redzone 2 Endzone

Astra.Xtreme vs aessap

 

Best of luck to everyone... well, not really. Just me. To hell with the rest of you. I'll see you in the championship game!

 

Either way, I'm just glad to have the NFL back!

I think everyone rejoined from last year, so we never had any openings this year. On another message board I chat on they have an upper and lower division league. Maybe we could do that if more people wanted to play, but it's a little later for this year.

Manning got 66.28 points in my other league. That's absolutely ridiculous. Our QB points are usually 20-30 with 40 something being a high and I don't even know if I've ever seen over 50. I hadn't checked his points until you said that. I have Demaryius Thomas in both leagues though!

Sweet, off to another excellent start.  :/

 

In one of my other leagues, I was against a guy with Manning and Thomas.  90 pts off of just those 2 guys.

I'm playing in a Little League: we just choose the 16 winners and score

from that. I think it's called Yahoo Pick'em.

 

Anyhow, I'm at 12/16 right now. Tampa Bay and Pittsburg really let me down.  :(

I'm in the lead by one. Just need Washington and Houston to win tonight and I win

this week. Woot!

Yeah, I've done the Pick em the last few years as well. This year I joined ESPN's version of a pickem game, playing the spread this time as well. Let's just say it's a bit different, I didn't do so well the first week, haha.

 

So I go the most points this week in the Neowin league, but I got the least points in my money league! Just my luck!

Would love to join in but my team is in shambles. :( So many injuries in the first game that it is unreal. I was really looking forward to this year but now I am a sad panda. I know the Pittsburgh Steelers can adapt and overcome injuries, but this year it will be especially difficult. Maybe they will surprise me.

Aw man I've missed out on this xD Just started playing fantasy this year on CBS because by the time I decided to play (Sunday) most of the other leagues had shut heh. Looking forward to week 1 2's games now :p In other news, kinda glad I stayed away from Brady and his rookie receivers.

I felt bad for Brady. Most of his throws were dead on, but his receiving team sucked ass.

That game should NOT have been that close. The Jets defense didn't stop the passing

game... those receivers did.

In fairness, the throws weren't dead on. A great quote I read the other day said "effort isn't a zero-sum game" - just because the receivers were to blame for the drops doesn't mean the passes couldn't have been better.  I'm not saying Tebow's mechanics have rubbed off on him during the offseason and his accuracy's completely off, but he could have been more accurate in the passes.

I didn't, I was playing against him, haha. I wanted an all around terrible game and I got it!

 

Should have posted this before but I'm a slacker...

The only "upset" for my league (so far) this week is the Eagles game.

We ALL chose them to win. Oops.

 

I'm rather upset about the Cowboys and Panthers... I really expected them to win.

I'm really surprised I can't even get any of the people that are in this league to comment here. :laugh: I'm not even sure what members some of the teams match up to except for the obvious ones. We should have done a pick 'em league as well. Maybe next year?

I have a question for you Fantasy folks:

Where can I look up total Fantasy points per NFL team?

For example, normal Fantasy Football has you drafting players from various teams...

but let's say I draft the entire Atlanta Falcons team. Is there a site I can pull up the

Atlanta Falcons and see every point made by their players?

http://games.espn.go.com/ffl/leaders will give you an idea, but bear in mind that different leagues do have different scoring systems (slightly), for example some give 6 points for a passing TD, most give 4 points. There's also the two main flavours of fantasy (Standard vs. PPR [point per reception]) scoring to bear in mind, so someone like Wes Welker who catches a high volume of passes will score more points in PPR than in standard scoring.

 

TLDR; there's no one-stop-shop, but the link above will give you a rough idea.

Yep. I was looking at that site and NFL.com. They spread the players out as

individuals. I"m trying to make a straight-up comparisson between a team's

total Offense vs Defense.
