NFL Playoffs Fantasy Football!

Postby The Lung » Fri Jan 02, 2009 6:39 pm

I have formed a (totally FREE) league for the NFL Playoffs in January. These aren't playoff leagues where you draft players - you just pick players each week. It's fast, fun and easy. Join in on the fun!

the_lung has invited you to join the NFL.com Playoff Challenge fantasy league, Fantasy Football Cafe. Join Now!

The league's url is: http://challengegames.nfl.com/playoffchallenge/leagues/6372?icampaign=PC_LM_email_invite

The league password is: c@fe

Note: The rules for the game can be viewed here: http://challengegames.nfl.com/playoffchallenge/pages/rules but I'll also copy the most important ones below.

b) Pick Your Players: The object of the game is to pick the NFL players who you think will perform best in their actual NFL games for each weekly scoring period. For each of the four (4) weekly scoring periods (as defined above), you may pick a total of eight (8) players per period: one (1) quarterback; two (2) running backs; two (2) wide receivers; one (1) tight end; one (1) kicker; and one (1) team defense/special teams from the player roster provided on the Promotion Game Page. You may select the same player multiple times during the Promotion Period assuming his team progresses through the playoffs. The players you select for each week will accumulate fantasy points based on the Scoring System below.

To select your players for any weekly scoring period, visit the Game Page, which will feature a player roster, and follow the instructions provided to make your player selections by the deadline(s).

Note: For NFL players who play more than one position, NFL.com will determine position eligibility. If you select a player for one position but then such player plays another eligible position for that applicable game (e.g. a running back plays wide receiver), his statistics at the new position will count towards your fantasy point total but he will still take up the positional slot of his initial position.

c) Player Selection Deadline: The deadline for choosing or modifying your player and position selection for each weekly scoring period is prior to kickoff of the applicable game in which the player(s) is playing.

Your last selection that is received by the applicable deadline will be used to tabulate your fantasy points. Selections cannot be modified for any game in progress or already completed. Fantasy points will not be awarded if 1.) a player selection is not made by the applicable deadline, 2.) the selected NFL player(s) does not play in the game for any reason, 3.) the selected NFL player does not perform any of the actions listed below to generate any points in a game, 4.) a game is cancelled for any reason, or 5.) a game is postponed or rescheduled, for any reason, to take place during a subsequent weekly scoring period.

5. Scoring System:

During each weekly scoring period throughout the Promotion Period, you will earn fantasy points based on the statistics accumulated by the NFL players that you have chosen for the applicable weekly scoring period using the following scoring system:

Offense Statistic (QB, RB, WR, TE, K): Fantasy Points:
Rushing or Receiving Touchdown: 6 fantasy points
Passing Touchdown: 4 fantasy points
Field Goal: 3 fantasy points
Passing, Rushing or Receiving Two-Point Conversion: 2 fantasy points
Rushing or Receiving: 1 fantasy point per 10 yards
Passing: 1 fantasy point per 25 yards
Extra Point: 1 fantasy point

Defense/Special Teams (D/ST):
Punt Returned Touchdown: 6 fantasy points
Kick-off Returned Touchdown: 6 fantasy points
Fumble Returned Touchdown: 6 fantasy points
Interception Returned Touchdown: 6 fantasy points
Allowing 0 Points: 10 fantasy points
Allowing 2-6 Points: 7 fantasy points
Allowing 7-13 Points: 4 fantasy points
Allowing 14-17 Points: 1 fantasy points
Allowing 18-21 Points: 0 fantasy points
Allowing 22-27 Points: -1 fantasy points
Allowing 28-34 Points: -4 fantasy points
Allowing 35-45 Points: -7 fantasy points
Allowing 46+ Points: -10 fantasy points
Team Win: 5 fantasy points
Interception: 2 fantasy points
Fumble Recovery: 2 fantasy points
Blocked Punt: 2 fantasy points
Blocked Field Goal or Blocked Field Goal: 2 fantasy points
Safety: 2 fantasy points
Sack: 1 fantasy points

The fantasy points accumulated by each player during one (1) weekly scoring period will be multiplied by the number of consecutive weeks in which the player has been on your roster assuming such player's team progresses through the playoffs. For example: A user selects Tom Brady, NE in the Wild Card round. Brady earns 15 fantasy points in the first weekly scoring period therefore the participant is awarded 15 points for the first weekly scoring period. If NE advances to the Divisional Playoffs and the participant selects to keep Brady on his/ her roster for the second consecutive weekly scoring period, and Brady earns 20 fantasy points in his Divisional Playoff game, the participant will earn 40 points for the second consecutive weekly scoring period (20 x 2 = 40). Those 40 points will be added to the 15 points earned in the first weekly scoring period for a two-week total of 55 points (15 + 40 = 55). In addition, a user can select Tom Brady, NE in the Wild Card round even if the New England Patriots have a bye into the Divisional Round. In this case, the user would not earn any points for the Wild Card round, but would then be eligible to earn “double points” in the Divisional round, since Brady was on the team’s roster for 2 weekly scoring periods.

Scoring Notes


* Offensive Scoring (QB, RB, WR, TE): Scoring will be calculated according to the following example: If a QB throws for 200 net yards, 2 TDs - rushes for 20 yards, 1 touchdown - and has 25 yards receiving, his point total for the round would be: 2 passing touchdowns = 8 points, 1 rushing touchdown = 6 points, 200yds Passing = 8 points, 20yds Rushing = 2 points, 25yds receiving = 2 points; or 26 total points for the round. Please note that, if you have an active QB and an active WR who play for the same NFL team, and your QB throws a touchdown pass to your WR, then you are credited with two touchdowns on the play and you receive 6 points for the reception touchdown by the WR and 4 points for the passing touchdown by the QB (10 points total). Also, it should be noted that players on your active roster at an offensive position cannot receive individual offensive points for your team when they are on special teams.
* Defensive / Special Team scores (Touchdowns, Fumble Recoveries, Interceptions, Safeties or Sacks): Your defense is awarded points when any one of its members generates either a touchdown, interception, fumble recovery, safety or sack. Your defense also is awarded points for a kickoff or punt return that results in a touchdown. For instance, if your active defense is the Saints, and Reggie Bush returns a punt for a touchdown, your defense (the Saints) gets 6 points. But in that same situation, a team using Bush as an active RB would NOT be awarded 6 points for that touchdown.
* Defensive Points Allowed: ALL points allowed by the team as a whole will be taken into account. Be aware this includes points scored against the offense (touchdown from an interception, safeties, etc.) and special teams (punt return for a touchdown) as well as those scored against the defense.
* Defensive Touchdowns: Defensive touchdowns are any touchdowns scored by the defensive team. This includes fumble returns and interception returns.
* Special Teams Touchdowns: Special Teams Touchdowns are touchdowns scored by punt returns, kickoff returns or returns of a blocked Field Goal kick or punt.
* Total Yards Allowed: Total yards allowed will be calculated by adding the opposing team's Total Rushing and Total Passing Yards gained.
* Rounding will NOT be used when calculating points from statistics. For example, 49 yards rushing will result in 4 points.

Yeah, I noticed that last week when I adjusted my roster for the divisional round. So deliberately overloaded my lineup with Giants thinking they had the best chance to advance to the SB. So, I'm pretty much done now. Seems I always end up playing this game terribly.

I'm looking in the rules and don't see anything about restricting the number of roster moves. Is that still a rule?

That is not a rule in this NFL.com game and I don't think it ever was. You may be thinking of SportingNews.com, who used to run (and may still) an NFL Playoffs Fantasy Football game which restricted the number of roster moves.

The most important thing to consider in this game is the points multiplier for having the same player in your lineup for as many consecutive weeks as possible:

The fantasy points accumulated by each player during one (1) weekly scoring period will be multiplied by the number of consecutive weeks in which the player has been on your roster assuming such player's team progresses through the playoffs. For example: A user selects Tom Brady, NE in the Wild Card round. Brady earns 15 fantasy points in the first weekly scoring period therefore the participant is awarded 15 points for the first weekly scoring period. If NE advances to the Divisional Playoffs and the participant selects to keep Brady on his/ her roster for the second consecutive weekly scoring period, and Brady earns 20 fantasy points in his Divisional Playoff game, the participant will earn 40 points for the second consecutive weekly scoring period (20 x 2 = 40). Those 40 points will be added to the 15 points earned in the first weekly scoring period for a two-week total of 55 points (15 + 40 = 55). In addition, a user can select Tom Brady, NE in the Wild Card round even if the New England Patriots have a bye into the Divisional Round. In this case, the user would not earn any points for the Wild Card round, but would then be eligible to earn “double points” in the Divisional round, since Brady was on the team’s roster for 2 weekly scoring periods.

For the last several years, you could change as many players as you wanted after the wildcard round, but then after the divisional round you could only change 4 players and then make only 2 changes for the Superbowl.

This year, after the wildcard round, we only had eight (8) lineup moves to make for the remainder of the contest.

That is how it was the last several years so I never bothered to read the rules for this year. I did not realize you only have a total of 8 moves throughout the playoffs, and needlessly moved players around even though I did not have to and now I have zero moves left.

I know I screwed up by not reading the rules, but they also could have publicized that the rules had changed. :-t

OK - I was going off of this post (about 4-5 up).

Um, that post was from 2009. They probably changed the format & rules since then.

Whatever is in the current rules is what applies. If it's not in the current rules, then it doesn't apply.

Sorry for the confusion. :-/ I guess I shouldn't use old threads for exactly this reason. I deleted that post to hopefully avoid any further confusion.
