Every week you pick 3 players: One for passing yards, one for rushing, and one for receiving. You can only use each player once per year. At the end of the week, however many yards those 3 players in their respective category added up is your score for that week. For the sake of simplicity, only yardage in that category counts - if you pick a running back for rushing yardage, and he runs for 105 and receives for 45, you only score 105.
So a typical score might look like
Peyton Manning 312
Ray Rice 78
Calvin Johnson 47
You’ll have to determine your own totals and post them to this thread. I started to do it all myself last year, but it was too time consuming, so everyone was nice enough to start posting their own totals. I take the numbers and post them all to a spreadsheet, which is updated weekly and viewable by everyone.
It turned out last year that passing yardage kind of dominated everything for obvious reasons, so I’m thinking we should tweak the spreadsheet to halve passing yardage (or double rushing/receiving) to keep the importance of each position relatively balanced.
Everyone is welcome to join. So long as people post their own scores, it wouldn’t take me too much longer to manage a lot of people.
If you’re reading this after the season has begun, you can still join us - you won’t be in competition for the total scores, but you could win from week to week.
I forgot this thread until late and so we don’t have much time. If you want someone from the NO/GB game, get the pick in before kickoff on Thursday, otherwise you don’t have to get your picks in until Sunday, before kickoff of the game involving the players.
