Week 1 - Very Tricky

Postby bobbing_headz » Sun Sep 02, 2007 2:45 am

This is one of the toughest week 1 in recent memory, very hard to pick. Been looking at everybody's ladders so far and they're all quite different. Let's hope there's not too many upsets.

I agree, many close close calls. Except for the Colts/Saints game of course, that'll be a landslide....GO COLTS! ;-D

Week 1 is one of THE hardest weeks. You have no clue what to expect from some teams. Go with teams that have proven themselves in the recent past is usually a good bet but there are so many big games this week. Man I'm so ready for these football games to get going!

I couldn't bring myself to do that. I'm too excited for football season to just take a bye!

No doubt taking my bye in MM. Every game could go either way in my eyes. Except maybe 3.

Hmm that's a strategy I've never really thought of. Taking a bye in week 1. I usually just save it for when the Webhammy gives me total crap to choose from. But you're right if I walk away with 8 games this week I'll be happy.

It actually might be a valid strategy, I didn't play the first 4 weeks last season because I hadn't found this place yet (meaning I used my bye first) and I ended up getting an Icon.
