Futile Fantasy Football Week 5!

I hope this picture happens a lot this weekend…

Last week, we had our first ever tie! Justin Anderson won for the second week in a row (matching what Brian Ish did for the first 2 weeks of the season) but was tied with first time winner Tommy Gimler. Good luck to everyone playing this week!

If you are new to this game, the goal is to pick THE WORST TEAM you can out of the players who are starting on Sunday. WE ONLY DO SUNDAY GAMES! Click here for the pool of players that are legal for this week: FUTILE FOOTBALL TEAM WEEK 5 PLAYER POOL

Who ever has THE LOWEST score wins. So really, we are playing golf. So pick a four pack of bums and get in the game! Here are the rules for a quick refresher.

-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 NFL team in real life 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 team owners 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.

-No Monday night players. The reason for this is we will be able to get some instant gratification Sunday night. I will post the winners then.

“If Adrian Peterson can gash the Seahawks defense, I am sure I can too…” -Shonn Greene

Since Brandon is currently on a plane, he will post his team like normal people later tonight. Here is my team for this week:

Jeff’s Team: QB – Jay Cutler CHI, RB – Shonn Greene, NYJ, WR – Jerome Simpson, MIN, TE – Greg Olson, CAR
