  • Complete team including total score of the Super Bowl (which is the tiebreaker)
  • Send to joemazz13@yahoo.com
  • Your e-mail address for weekly updates
  • Payment by January 13th
  • Payment details to follow shortly, PayPal will be an option this year
  • If at all possible please combine payments and if you are sending payment for multiple teams

I also want to make everyone aware that I will be submitting my two teams ($20) without payment in return for the 20 hours or so of time that it takes to manage the pool.

RULES:

We will score using the fantasy scoring below.  There are twelve teams in the playoffs.  You need to select one player from each team.  For the team you create, you need to fill the following positions:

(2) QB’s

(3) RB’s

(3) WR’s

(1) TE

(2) K’s

(1) D/ST

Each week, you will score points based on your players’ performance.  As playoff teams lose, you will lose the player on that team.  Each team will always have the same amount of players, as the playoffs go on, you may end up having the same players as someone else.  You must also provide the total points of the Super Bowl.  This will be used as a tiebreaker.  If the team(s) are still tied after this tiebreaker, the money will be split

FANTASY SCORING

 QB/RB/WR/TE

  • 1 point for every 10 yards rushing or receiving (rushing and receiving are scored separate and will not be combined)
  • 1 point for every 25 yards passing
  • 6 points for a rushing, receiving or passing touchdown
  • 2 points for a rushing, receiving or passing 2-point conversion
  • 3 point bonus for 100 yards rushing or receiving (rushing and receiving are scored separate and will not be combined)
  • 5 point bonus for 150 yards rushing or receiving (rushing and receiving are scored separate and will not be combined)
  • 7 point bonus for 200 yards rushing or receiving (rushing and receiving are scored separate and will not be combined)
  • 3 point bonus for 300 yards passing
  • 5 point bonus for 350 yards passing
  • 7 point bonus for 400 yards passing
  • 3 point bonus for 10+ receptions
  • (-2) points for an interception
  • (-1) point for a lost fumble by your offense or special teams that is recovered by the opposing team.  Fumbles lost and then recovered by your offensive player/their team or your special teams will not result in a loss of a point

*** Player cannot receive more than one bonus for hitting yardage milestones. i.e if you get 187 yards rushing you receive the 5 point bonus for 150, not the 3 point bonus for 100 and 5 point bonus for 150

*** If a player scores a special teams touchdown (punt return/kick return/etc.) and you have them starting at a different position, you WILL receive points for the TD, but not the yardage. For example, you have Julian Edelman as a WR, he has 23 yards rushing, 48 yards receiving and a punt return for a td.  You will receive 2 points for rushing yards, 4 points for receiving yards and 6 points for the punt return td for a total of 12 points. Additionally, any team with the New England Defense would also get the 6 points for that punt return TD.
