If you missed out on the NFL Pick'em league at ESPN, you can still sign-up for the 2nd chance league over at Yahoo. This league skips week 1 and starts with the games for week 2.

OK, signed up. Are these straight picks or against the spread picks?

They're neither straight nor against the spread. This is a weighted pick pool, where you assign each game a value from 1-16 (each number used once). Get the game right and you "get" those points. Get it wrong, you get zero. Most points wins the week, most cumulative points at season's end wins the season.

11-5, but I missed a couple of my big point games

Misses
Baltimore 15
Detroit 13
Buffalo 9
San Diego 7
Green Bay 3

This format seems like you can get some big swings from week to week so it should be fun to watch it progress.

I've gone 11-5, 10-4, 10-4 for 31-13 over the three weeks. I can't allocate points very well though. I always seem to miss one or two double digit games every week. Still hanging around though.

Looks like 4 of us picked the same winners for every game this week. The point allocation is pretty different though. I don't think there had been a week yet where two people had the same picks, so this is pretty surprising.

I keep missing my chance to make pics I'll have to set up something on my calendar because yahoo's reminders don't make it to my box. It's only come once since I signed up.
