Best Buy FF Link?

believe it or not I have won twice. I won last week but only $25 best buy certificate and won the 2nd Place TV about a month ago the, the TV arrived a week ago. All I can say is the TV is smoking. ;-D

and the irony of last weeks win was that I forgot to make my picks and had to pick only players from the afternoon/mnf games.

I got lucky, especially the CHI D, they had 36 pts!

GL this week everyone.

The best Ive finished so far is 78th, and I would have won SOMETHING if stupid Thomas Jones hadnt had been hurt on his first carry. What a turd


My strategy is kind of easy. I just look for good bargains all across the board and then fill out the rest w/ as many studs in good matchups I can.


There really is no super great strategy, a lot of this is obvioulsy luck

Well I'm not winning anything this week. I knew I should've put my X2 marker on Peyton Manning. Dammit.
Praise Ricky!

I am extremely dissapointed. I really thought that I had a shot at winning something this week:

QB Donovan McNabb PHI at DAL 34
QB David Carr HOU at IND 9
RB Deuce McAllister NO KC 44
RB Onterrio Smith MIN at GB 13
RB Derrick Blaylock KC at NO 32
WR Terrell Owens PHI at DAL 44
WR Andre Johnson HOU at IND 7
WR Nate Burleson MIN at GB 25
TE Tony Gonzalez KC at NO 7
PK Doug Brien NYJ BAL 5
PK Rian Lindell BUF at NE 0
D Arizona Cardinals ARI NYG 18
Totals 238

The real bust was the Carr/ AJ combo. I thought that Johson would score 2TDS from Carr.

Duece who I tagged I figured would blow up against the Chiefs D, didnt really happen. I thought Gonzon was good for 100 YDs and a score. Didnt happen.

Blaylock was sick value for $11 and so was Burleson for $8

The Mcnab and TO combination worked out great ;-D

But I really liked my chances of winning this week :-/

You did a heck of a lot better than I did (185 pts, ugh!!)

A buddy of mine really tanked it though. The cutoff for prizes this week was 309 pts. He scored 291 and put his 2x tag on the worst one on his list, Big Ben, who got him a whopping 18 pts. he could have put his tag on his other QB, Brett Favre, and he would have been in the money. That and he had Duce Staley as one of his RB's, and since he didn't play he got a big fat zero from him. Man that's gotta hurt.

This week I dropped way way way down to about 12,000 in the overall ranking, by far my worst performance of the year. I think I just killed any remote chance that I had at winning those Superbowl tickets.

What really amazes me is that karin from tampa has finished 6th, 4th and 3rd the last 3 weeks. It seems like you have to have some good luck to score anywhere near 300pts. I know I have only reached it one week. Also, an amazing amount of women seem to win prizes. Not trying to be sexist but I am sure the percentage of men vs women fantasy players is probaby like 95% to 5% if not higher. Out of the 8 leagues I play I think we have a total of 3 female players.

I think someone was switching the tags this week. I somehow tagged Big Ben while I played Cpep at my other QB. Finished off with 268 points. Even adding Culpeppers 2x, I wouldnt have been up for a prize. Close, but no cigar.
