Player Pickoff Rules

Player Pickoff

The regular season is over - but Matchup Meltdown is already back, challenging you with a playoff edition that will keep your football juices flowing through the month of January and into February: Player Pickoff. Enjoy!

Gameplay

In Player Pickoff, it's all about individual players instead of teams. You start off by picking sixteen players in the first round who you think will score at least one touchdown in that week. You can pick ANY player you want, but please note that you are not allowed to pick the same player twice during the entire contest. So choose your picks carefully!

For example, if you pick Earl Campbell in round one, you may not choose Campbell again in the entire course of the competition.

Note: for a pick to be correct, your player must score a touchdown himself, not pass the ball to a teammate.

In round two, you can only make as many picks as you made correctly in round one.

And so on. If you have no picks left, you are eliminated.

To win the game, you need to score as many points as possible during the playoffs and in the Super Bowl. For each touchdown scored by your players during the Wild Card Weekend, you will earn 5 points. Each touchdown scored by one of your players in the Divisional Playoffs will earn you 15 points. Touchdowns in the Conference Championships will earn you 50 points each, and on Super Bowl Sunday, each touchdown scored will increase your tally by 155 points. The player with the highest overall score wins the contest.

Wild Card Weekend: 5 points
Divisional Playoffs: 15 points
Conference Championships: 50 points
Super Bowl: 155 points

Example: In the Conference Championships, you have three picks left, and choose Earl Campbell, Tony Dorsett and Dan Fouts. Campbell scores two TDs, while Dorsett and Fouts come up empty. As a result, you gain 100 points (50 points for each of Campbell's scores, zero for the other two players), and have one pick remaining for the Super Bowl, since one of your players found the end zone.

To make your predictions, simply submit the full names of the players you expect to score that week in the weekly Predictions thread in this forum. Don't forget to mention the teams your players are on, as well as their positions - without this information, your picks won't count. (Please make sure you submit the correct amount of predictions; if you accidentally submit more predictions than you're entitled to, the players listed first will count. After submitting your pick, it's your own responsibility to make sure it actually shows up in your post. In case of technical problems, please contact the moderator of this game and/or PM menyak.)

Unlike the regular season edition of Matchup Meltdown, there are no bye weeks: if you miss a week, you're out of the running. Note however that, as long as you pick players from matchups that haven't started yet, you may still participate in a week where the first games are already under way (that is, if you haven't missed a week before).

Secret Submissions

If you wish, you may submit your predictions via private message to the game moderator in order to prevent others from duplicating your strategy. Please only make use of this option if you really think it's necessary - making your picks for all to see is simply more fun for everyone.

What's at Stake

Player Pickoff isn't only for bragging rights - it also serves as the tiebreaker for the regular season Matchup Meltdown game if two or more players manage to keep their regular-season streaks alive through the Super Bowl.

Good luck!

Sweet 16PE isn't only for bragging rights - it also serves as the tiebreaker for the regular season Sweet Sixteen game if it hasn't been decided by week 17.


wow this is going to be crazy...picking 16 players to score, by the end of the first round i guarantee most owners will only have probably 8 players to chose from

Aaaargh... stupid menyak. Regular Sweet 16 will of course continue throughout the playoffs as it used to! It's just in case it isn't decided by the Super Bowl, the playoff game will be used as the tiebreaker. So CKY, pawn and terp, please do participate in the playoff game *too* in case we need it to decide.

Hope it's clear now. :-o Game thread should be up shortly.
