Anyone have a better week 1 than me? 226 pts!

Can't imagine anyone doing much better than that. 12 team league with .5 PPR and 1 point bonuses at 100, 150, and 200 yards so nothing too crazy with the settings (I'd still be easily over 200 without the bonuses). Started the 3 highest scoring RBs in the league. Started my optimal lineup so far (could've started Flacco or Floyd tonight). Anyone else have a first week like this?

How did you get 312? My league is pretty standard (if anything a little higher scoring than most) and if I went through and put together the best possible team I'd only have about 278. Besides Favre and Marshall I had just about the best possible team. I had five of the top six RB/WRs and the top TE and my kicker and D were within a few points each of being the best.

it is a 2QB league with bonuses for yardage milestones, and so far I have 313 points with Bowe and Floyd yet to play tonight. I am about 200 points ahead of the team I am playing this week due primarily to playing Peyton, Cutler and Foster. Incredibly, I left Forte(55pts) on my bench. :-D

Nice, but I don't think I'd like a league that has that big of bonuses for yardage milestones. Assuming that it's also PPR, Forte got 20.1 points for his yards but then about another 16 just for yardage bonuses (even more if no PPR)? Not only does that make yards much more important than TDs, but it just brings way more luck into it. Why should the difference between 95 and 105 yards be like 6 points or whatever it is instead of 1 (or 2 like it is in my league)? Maybe it's just a fun league so then whatever but for a competitive league I wouldn't like this at all. What did Foster get, like 70 points?

It Sure IS a strange league.

In all my years of playing FFB, it is the first and only time I drafted a QB first, and second, and with my third pick too. (Peyton, Rivers and Cutler). 8-o

Nope not even close. But I did (will after this game) score the second most points in in 2 of my leagues and lose both. And third in another with a 3rd loss. :-{

Never seem to have a problem fielding a solid team its the schedule that kills me every time. Always play the one guy you don't want to play. Then see guys score 70 and win when I lose with 124. Baffles me.

I feel you, man. I had the 2nd highest score in my league by far, and I'm 0-1 after week 1. Go punt a toad Arian Foster. :-P

I had a better week 1. I'm 5-0 and most total points in 2 leagues. B-) :-b But seriously, Don't know the last time I've opened up with wins in all my leagues. And only one of them was kinda flukey. It's certain to go downhill from here.
