Fantasy Player Insurance?!? ...you can thank me later!

Postby RubeRiot » Fri Sep 02, 2005 3:50 pm

I just heard about this site on the radio...

http://www.fantasyplayerprotection.com/HomePage.html

...sounds like you can buy insurance for the fantasy players you pick. Could this be for real?!? Here is an example...

Cost for:
P.Holmes...$14.95
Results...
0-2 Games Missed : $0 Payout
3-5 Games Missed : $14.95 Payout
6-8 Games Missed : $42.09 Payout
9-11 Games Missed : $55.80 Payout
12-15 Games Missed : $78.22 Payout

Wow, screw playing in money leagues. This year I'm making my bank on an insurance scam.

Let's see, I'll draft: Priest, Fred Taylor, McNair, Stephen Davis...hmm, I wonder if Charles Rogers has another freak injury if it pays out triple.
Praise Ricky!

You can get Peerless Price, Ricky Williams, andAntonio Gates. All guys who will miss at least one game this season. You could make 50 bucks from these guys alone. Add in Deshaun Foster, Fred Taylor and Steve McNair. A guy could make a living doing this sort of thing. Forget Fantasy Football, I am now playing Fantasy Football Injury/Suspension Prediction for cash.

Ricky's already been factored in with regards to his suspension. So you'd have to wait longer for the missed games to add up. It's kinda cool that he can still just "miss" a game and it counts though...
