    Difficult to say since you don't know which RB's will be on which teams just yet.

    I think I'd put the early money on the top WR, though...Crabtree. He should be a force whereever he goes.
    Yes, well, if it was easy it wouldn't be fun. I think doing it before the draft would be interesting.

    Snarky - would we be doing this by Patriots fans rules or by NFL rules?

    See, when you bring up to Pats fans that Ben has won the most games in his first five seasons in the league they will argue that the NFL rules are stupid and that a players first year actually playing should be considered his rookie year, not his first year on the team. Meaning "Brady is better" blah blah blah.

    stlrz_d,

    This would be a reality based game.

    This is a good site for running survivor. I am not sure about the price to run anything there. I participate in one survivor pool there and it costs $25 to buy in. I usually buy two spots. If you lose, you have the option to buy back in the next week up until the 7th or 8th week. If we can get it organized, I will participate.

    i believe that is the same as 'eliminator'

    which is one of my favorite pools...

    the group that i am in that does the eliminator has adjusted the rules several times due to everyone losing prior to end of the season.

    we have used multiple formats, such as:
    - once everyone is out, everyone starts again- same basic rules
    - no one loses by missing a pick- but the winner is the person with the least wrong picks, ties are handled as normal-
    - similar to your pool- we allowed everyone two entries-

    personally, the second choice kept the most people involved, and thus was the most fun, but kind of deteriorated the point of the game. But if you have ever lost by the third week, you understand that the point of the game can suck.

    I wish. Being free is a good thing. When someone has a chance to win 3,000 or more(depends how many people enroll), $50 is not a lot of money. If there are good sports at the end (4 or 5 people), they may be willing to split up the final dollar amount.

    I played in the FF on yahoo. Came close to winning. Deangelo Williams spoiled my victory.

    So we've established that the eliminator and FF will be conducted... but who out of our membership will be willing to administrate. I hope stlrz d will be doing his Playoff Fantasy Game again. BTW, what do you want to call that?
