Top 5: New Fantasy Football Game!

Alright guys, here is a new spin on Fantasy Football. I was thinking about doing a “start/sit” type article, but then I figured I would just post a game that seems way more fun. You pick a new team every week. You can pick any player currently starting for a team and playing. The catch is, you try to pick the players that will actually do bad! The game is similar to golf, person with the lowest score wins after the Sunday night game wins. Here are some extended rules:

-Each team will be comprised of one QB, RB, WR and TE. The game is meant to be simple. Pick one of each.

-Each player picked for each position must be a STARTER and must be PLAYING that week. (For instance, you may not pick Matt Cassel because he is hurt, but you may pick Brady Quinn.)

-Your RB slot has to be filled with the first string (and starting) RB from a team. You may not use full backs or H backs.

-Each team has two WR’s that start. You may pick either of them as long as they are playing that week. So, you may pick either Desean Jackson or Jeremy Maclin on the Eagles as your WR if you wanted.

-Use the official team Depth Chart to determine starting status. Other players may challenge a pick.

-Scoring is standard scoring. All touchdowns count as 6 points (including passing TD’s). 25 throwing yards equals 1 point. 10 yards rushing and receiving equals 1 point. -2 for fumbles and INT’s.

-No decimal point scoring.

Ok, so here we go! This week my friend Brandon and I have already picked our squads (we also excluded the Monday night game, but that was just so we could get our results earlier. Feel free to choose anyone from that game). Here they are:

Brandon’s turd Team: QB – Sam Bradford (Rams), RB – Will Powell (Cardinals), WR – Mike Williams (Tampa Bay), TE – Zac Miller (Seattle).

The QB of Brandon’s team.

My Terrible Team – QB- Russel Wilson (Seattle), RB – Stephen Jackson (Rams), WR – Stephen Hill (Jets), TE – Anthony Fasano (Dolphins).

This is Stephen Hill, my WR.

You think you got what it takes to stink more than that kid that just played World of Warcraft for 23 hours straight?? Pick a team and leave it in the comments below. I will tally the score and post the weekly winners! Good luck picking the Duds of the week.

  3. All right! I love it. But let’s be honest. If you’re thinking about picking Matt Cassel or Brady Quinn, we need to take you out back and take care of you Old Yeller style.

  4. Oh, and for yesterday, I’ll take Aaron Rodgers, Shonn Greene, Jordy Nelson, and Kyle Rudolph. Send the money via PayPal, please.
