2014 Fantasy Football Playoff Parlay

1 Jan

Hey all,
Here are all the details for the pool.  My buddy Joe’s been running it for 15 years and it’s very cool.  Because most fantasy football leagues are done now, this is a great way to keep your fantasy fix on through the playoffs.  There are usually 100+ teams entered so the pot gets up there (only $10 to enter a team), but the more the merrier.  Let me know if you have any questions.  Email me directly at scotty.ballgame@comcast.net or DM me on Twitter if you want in and I’ll give you Joe’s mailing address.  Thanks, Scott

Hello everyone and welcome to the 15th Annual Fantasy Football Playoff Pool. Last year we had a record 178 entries and hope to repeat that.

Please read the below carefully.

Most important items to note:

To enter, I need:

Complete team (each person can enter one or two teams) using the below roster requirements on the attached excel document BY FRIDAY, JANUARY 3rd at 6:00pm

YOU are responsible for submitting a legal team.  I will do my best to catch any errors, but if your team is illegal and is caught at ANY TIME, you will be eliminated and refunded your money.

  • 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 17th
  • Send Checks to: contact Scott for Joe’s mailing address
  • I have not set up paypal – will try to do next year, sorry for the inconvenience
  • 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. Please let me know if there are issues with this.

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 Wes Welker 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. On a side note, any team with the Denver Defense/Special Teams would also get the 6 points for that punt return TD.

Kickers

  • 1 point for an extra point
  • 3 points for a field goal from 18 – 49 yards
  • 5 points for a field goal from 50 – 59 yards
  • 7 points for a field goal 60 yards and over 

Defense/Special Teams

  • 1 point for a sack
  • 1 point for an interception
  • 1 point for a DEFENSIVE RECOVERED fumble (Offense recoveries score no points, and a forced fumble scores no points)
  • 3 points for a blocked punt or field goal
  • 5 points for a safety
  • 6 points for a return touchdown (interception, fumble, kickoff, and punt returns)
  • 10 points for a defensive shutout
  • 7 points for holding a team between 2 – 5 points
  • 3 points for holding a team between 6 – 10 points
  • (-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
