NFL Survivor and Pick 'Em leagues....
 
Ok, if you were in either league last year, check your email you used on yahoo. Should be an invite on there. There's a survivor league (one wrong pick and you are out) and a pick 'em league (multiple picks per week, running total of points by using confidence points)

Here's the link to the the survivor league: http://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/survival/21081

Here's the link to the pick 'em, which is multiple picks per week with the added confidence points: http://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/pickem/41940

I clicked it and I got an error that says I'm not a member of the group. Edit: Nevermind I figured it out! Thanks!

The reigning 2013 DVD Talk Pick Em Champion (and one of the very first players eliminated in the Survivor pool) is IN!

What is the name of the survivor group (or better yet, group ID number)? I clicked on the link and got an error message?

Thanks. I'm in for the Survivor and will lose early I'm sure. Yahoo doesn't make it easy.

Is Sunday the deadline every week for Survivor?

Decker 09-02-14 10:54 PM

Re: NFL Survivor and Pick 'Em leagues....
 
Yeah. Kickoff Sunday. For Pick 'Em as well, but you'd miss out on the Thursday game.

Deftones 09-02-14 11:46 PM

Re: NFL Survivor and Pick 'Em leagues....
 
Yeah I didn't want to do Thursday deadline. People always forget about them and half the league would be eliminated in the first week. :lol:

I'm a NFL Survivor newbie. Can we can pick the same team the next week if we want to?

No, once you pick a team, you are done with them.

I'm in for both.

Sign up if you haven't.

Remember, that in the survivor league, you can pick as late as the last games. The Pick 'Em league requires picks for ALL games, so you will lose points if you forget about the Thursday night games.

I can't read!

No. I added the confidence points to it this year. You have to put confidence points for every game. from 16 down to 1. Correct picks earn that amount of points. So, while it might not matter about your picks with lower scores, over time, getting those right will definitely add to your score.

Re: NFL Survivor and Pick 'Em leagues....
 
I was wondering about those confidence points. I liked it better the old way :p

Nothing to see here! Move on!

Um, I don't get what you are trying to say. There are 16 games in a week (not counting bye weeks). 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.
