Hey- it's one thing to dish out advice in the cafe when nothing is really at stake but it's a nothing when a big ass plasma is up for grabs. You think I'm going to give out any insider secret?

Having said that, I think my rank is something like 35,000 plus and my highest score is 208 points. I got no pointers for this thing. I think Best Buy hired some actuaries to come up with the formulaes to rig it so it's so g-damn random who wins from week to week.

Im not going to reveal all my strategies :-b , but here's a freebie (also somewhat obvious). For Qb's don't focus soley on the solid passers like Peyton, and company, a Qb who runs a TD in is equivelent to throwing 2 TD's. This makes guys like Leftwich and Garcia, and even Vick potentially more valuabale then other better Qb's. For example in week 6 I picked Leftwich and Vick and both ran TD's in and also threw a couple, and ended up with 33 & 31 points from them, I woulda kicked ass that week if not for the Lions D scoring me a fat 0 and Walker being average :,-(

Last week killed me, and I had Priest tagged and changed it to frikan S. Alexander at the last minute because of Atlanta's tough run "D"......what a joke!!!

I was under 3000 rank overall until last week!!

Also just missed a prize one week!!

The one time I thought I did really well, i still sucked. All my skill spots scored and had good numbers, but my kickers combined for like 2 pts. I was pissed.

I tagged Manning Today for Double points ;-D , but It wont be enough to win me one of those Tvs.

I figured he was playing the Chiefs+ my opponent had him. So it was an easy decision

I just checked it and I saw that I forgot to chose a TE 8-o

and have no money to buy one for tom. Do I get penalized for it?
