You use the 16 point one for the game you are most confident in, going down to 1 point with least confident. The games you correctly pick, you get the amount of points you assigned the confidence in. You can use each confidence point once per week. I can't give 5 teams 16. Only one pick gets 16, one for 15, etc. down the line.


So say I picked Denver as 16 and Seattle as an 8, and both win, I'd get 24 points. I don't get what is confusing you.


Edit: I think you think you only get 16 points, is that what you are trying to say? If so, that is not correct. You get points for 16 all the way down to 1. You rank the games from most confident (16 points) to least confident (1 point). Whatever you get right, is the amount of points you score per week. So, if you got every pick right, you could score a maximum of 136 points in a week there are 16 games.

The short answer: I'm a dumbass and was trying to do this quickly towards the end of a break. Everyone please ignore me.

Looks like a few other people were confused too, getting last night's game right, but having 0 confidence points assigned.

They could have just been extremely un-confident.

10 gone already, this would have been practically wrapped up if Philly didn't come back.

Love Trevor's team name (assuming that's trevor)

Yeah I was a little worried there. I got eliminated week 2 last year. I'm going to pick the most obvious choice as humanly possible this time.

How long did it take to have a winner last year (and who was it)?

<-- This guy won it, but I don't recall how many weeks it took.




Edit: It ended on Nov 10th - NFL week 10.

Whew! I picked Pittsburgh and they just barely won. This is my first time playing Survival Football and I'm enjoying it so far.

Made it through Week 1 of my survivor pool. Unfortunately so did everyone else. I took the Jets.

Re: NFL Survivor and Pick 'Em leagues....

fucking Buffalo knocks me out in week 1? this hasn't happened in years. I don't know how many seasons back it was, but I think it was Miami beating NE in the first week knocked out all but 2 or 3 players

This was a pretty rough start. oof.

Re: NFL Survivor and Pick 'Em leagues....

I don't even know why I bother with the Survivor league. I'm not sure I've ever made it past week 3.

Re: NFL Survivor and Pick 'Em leagues....

Well shit, I didn't understand the Confidence thing this year. I left it blank (thought it was some sort of tiebreak) and now I'm in last place with 0 points despite a league best 11-5 mark last week. Think I might be out since it's a lot of work to enter every week with no chance to win any more. I need to read directions better!

It's in a little different place depending on what 'game' you are playing, but you are looking for the "Fantasy Profile" link. In the Survivor League it's under the "Home" menu. It shows the trophies and such from all of your Yahoo fantasy games.

Re: NFL Survivor and Pick 'Em leagues....

I was actually hunting all over for it after seeing his post too, because I always forget how to find it I just happen to find a similar link that you had on the left hand side by going to the main Fantasy home page http://sports.yahoo.com/fantasy/ and noticed it went to a generic link.

Re: NFL Survivor and Pick 'Em leagues....

I'm out. Who would have thought that the Saints would start the season out 0-2?
