    Done. I think a lot of picks are gonna end up looking similar. Everyone's gonna be a lot closer by forcing 1 from every team. It actually took longer to think through picking anyone because you have to consider how many games each guy could end up playing most likely.

    In retrospect, I wish I caught this earlier. Your rules made it a breeze.

    I agree. There was a lot more strategy in it when I was considering how many games I might get out of each group of guys rather than knowing how many players I would have each week. I like it our way better.

    Okay...four teams in the running, D Rock, Pappy, Flippy, and myself.

    On our teams, we all picked Arian Foster, Ray Rice, A.J. Green, and Adrian Peterson, so their performances all cancelled out, since it was the exact same for everyone. Therefore, it ended up coming down to 4 players for each team instead of 8 this week, if you really think about it. I'll calculate the points for those 4 guys, even though it is not necessary. Peterson and Green's teams were eliminated, though, so we won't have those 2 guys in common going forward (but everyone's AFC RB's will be exactly the same again next weekend).

    In the CIN v. HOU game:

    A.J. Green had 5 catches for 80 yards and 0 TD. He scored 8 points.

    Arian Foster had 32 carries for 140 yards and 1 TD, plus 8 catches for 34 more yards. He scored 23.4 points.

    In the MIN v. GB game:

    Adrian Peterson had 22 carries for 99 yards and 1 TD, plus 1 catch for 8 more yards. He scored 10.7 points.

    Aaron Rodgers was 23 for 33 for 274 yards, 1 TD, and 0 INT. He also had 2 rushes for 12 yards. He scored 18.16 points.

    Greg Jennings had 4 catches for 61 yards and 0 TD. He scored 6.1 points.

    In the IND v. BAL game:

    Andrew Luck was 28 for 54 for 288 yards, 0 TD, and 1 INT. He also had 4 carries for 35 yards and lost a fumble. He scored 11.02 points.

    Reggie Wayne had 9 catches for 114 yards and 0 TD. He scored 11.4 points.

    T.Y. Hilton had 8 catches for 66 yards and 0 TD. He scored 6.6 points.

    Ray Rice had 15 carries for 70 yards and 0 TD, plus 1 catch for 47 more yards. He lost 2 fumbles. He scored 7.7 points.

    In the SEA v. WAS game:

    Marshawn Lynch had 20 carries for 132 yards and 1 TD, plus 1 catch for 9 more yards. He lost a fumble. He scored 18.1 points.

    Sidney Rice had 1 catch for 27 yards and 0 TD. He scored 2.7 points.

    Robert Griffin III was 10 for 19 for 84 yards, 2 TD, and 1 INT. He also had 5 carries for 21 yards and lost a fumble. He scored 13.46 points.

    Alfred Morris had 16 carries for 80 yards and 0 TD. He scored 8 points.

    Pierre Garcon had 4 catches for 50 yards and 0 TD. He scored 5 points.


    After one week, here are the standings:

    1. RuthlessBurgher 102.46

    A. Foster 23.4
    R. Rice 7.7
    A.J. Green 8
    R. Wayne 11.4

    M. Lynch 18.1
    P. Garcon 5


    2. Flippy 94.06

    A. Foster 23.4
    R. Rice 7.7
    A.J. Green 8
    T.Y. Hilton 6.6

    A. Foster 23.4
    R. Rice 7.7
    A.J. Green 8

    Not a ton of fantasy points to go around this weekend. The only heavy hitter we all missed was John Kuhn and his 2 TDs. Can't think of any other misses.

    Sorry for the delay...I compiled the scores early in the week, but then got busy (my wife is in Texas on business, so I've had 2 kids to myself this week) and never posted the scores. Here they are, though.

    In the HOU v. NE game:

    Arian Foster had 22 carries for 90 yards and 1 TD, plus 7 catches for 63 more yards and another TD. He scored 27.3 points.

    Tom Brady was 25 for 40 for 344 yards, 3 TD, and 0 INT. He also had 1 carry for -1 yard. He scored 31.66 points.

    Rob Gronkowski broke his arm again. He sits in the goose egg lounge (where he is probably dancing without a shirt, but I digress).

    In the GB v. SF game:

    Aaron Rodgers was 26 for 39 for 257 yards, 2 TD, and 1 INT. He also had 3 rushes for 28 yards. He scored 23.08 points.

    Greg Jennings had 6 catches for 54 yards and 1 TD. He scored 11.4 points.

    Vernon Davis had 1 catch for 44 yards and 0 TD. He scored 4.4 points.

    Michael Crabtree had 9 catches for 119 yards and 2 TD. He scored 23.9 points.

    In the BAL v. DEN game:

    Ray Rice had 30 carries for 131 yards and 1 TD. He scored 19.1 points.

    Peyton Manning was 28 for 43 for 290 yards, 3 TD, and 2 INT. He also had 1 carry for -1 yard and lost a fumble. He scored 23.5 points.

    Jacob Tamme had 3 catches for 44 yards and 0 TD. He scored 4.4 points.

    Demaryius Thomas had 3 catches for 37 yards and 1 TD. He scored 9.7 points.

    In the SEA v. ATL game:

    Marshawn Lynch had 16 carries for 46 yards and 1 TD, plus 3 catches for 37 more yards. He lost a fumble. He scored 12.3 points.

    Sidney Rice had 4 catches for 60 yards and 0 TD. He scored 6 points.

    Julio Jones had 6 catches for 59 yards and 0 TD, plus 1 carry for -1 yard. Unfortuntely, he doesn't get credit for the interception he got on the last play of the game. He scored 5.8 points.

    Roddy White had 5 catches for 76 yards and 1 TD. He scored 13.6 points.

    Tony Gonzalez had 6 catches for 51 yards and 1 TD. He scored 11.1 points.



    Here are the week two totals:

    1. Pappy 121.74

    A. Foster 27.3
    R. Rice 19.1
    T. Brady 31.66
    J. Tamme 4.4

    A. Rodgers 23.08
    S. Rice 6
    J. Jones 5.8
    V. Davis 4.4

    2. D Rock 120.18

    A. Foster 27.3
    R. Rice 19.1
    D. Thomas 9.7
    R. Gronkowski 0

    A. Rodgers 23.08
    S. Rice 6
    M. Crabtree 23.9
    T. Gonzalez 11.1

    3. RuthlessBurgher 115.48

    A. Foster 27.3
    R. Rice 19.1
    P. Manning 23.5
    R. Gronkowski 0

    A. Rodgers 23.08
    M. Lynch 12.3
    J. Jones 5.8
    V. Davis 4.4

    4. Flippy 111.6

    A. Foster 27.3
    R. Rice 19.1
    P. Manning 23.5
    R. Gronkowski 0

    M. Lynch 12.3
    G. Jennings 11.4
    R. White 13.6
    V. Davis 4.4

    After two weekends of playoff football, here are the totals:

    1. Ruthless 217.94
    2. Pappy 211.8
    3. D Rock 209.86
    4. Flippy 205.66

    Eight games down and only 3 to go.

    In the AFC, Pappy has the decided edge, since he has Tom Brady going while the rest of us are guaranteed another Gronk goose egg. Everyone has Ray Rice, so he gets cancelled out.

    In the NFC, everyone has Vernon Davis except for D Rock, but his Michael Crabtree is currently being investigated for sexual assault. For Atlanta, Pappy and I have Julio, Flippy has Roddy, and D Rock has Gonzo.
