Hypothetical question: What's the optimal number of picks you'd have if you could choose headed into week 9? Would that number change if you had a bye vs. if you didn't?

This is my first time playing the game so I've never seen how things go after week 8. I would want to have no more than 3 picks though because if you have too many you'll get stuck picking bad teams down the stretch. Hmm maybe 3 picks is too much.

HMMM,,,,, Should I use my bye this week to guarantee a life raft or take the Colts?

Tough call but I will probably roll with the Colts. I want to hold on to the bye til later.

I would use it now, It Guarantee's you get the life raft.

Sure this might be the most lopsided game all year but there is a chance an upset could happen, be it the size of needle in a haystack.

Why kick yourself all year long because you didnt use the life raft to guarantee the win.

Good Luck
