    So I don't know how but I think I pulled it out. Entered the playoffs as a 7 seed with a 5-8 record. Beat the 2 seed, 3 seed, now the 4 seed(he had Romo this weekend lol)...although it isn't over yet I think I am in good position. He has Jimmy Graham left while I have Julio Jones left but I am up by 27 points....

    on a side note...winner gets $700 bucks :)

    It's the only reason I play. I refuse to play in a league unless money is involved

    My friends are too scared of me to play for money... I've only been able to play for money once.

    Though it's unlikely, you could still lose, so don't get too excited yet.

    What FF did you use (yahoo, espn, nfl, etc), how many players, and how much for buy in?

    Is there anyway you can play for money with people you don't know. Like could I just go on espn or whichever and play for money? I've always wanted to play for money but have like no friends that play fantasy football or even like football enough to understand how to.

    We play on yahoo...I prefer it there. It's a half point ppr league. Only complaint I have in our league(I work with all these guys) is defensive scoring is far too high. A sack is worth 4 pts bc it counts as a sack(2pts) and a tackle for loss(2pts). Some defense score 50 pts a game and it could absolutely break you.

    It's a 12 team league, 3, 4 team divisions. 15 player teams only restrictions are you must keep 2 qbs, 2 k's, and 2 def on your team at all times. This keeps people from hoarding players. Last year there was a guy who had 8 rbs on his roster at one time. 8 teams make the playoffs. I made it on the last week.

    1st place wins 700
    2nd place wins 225
    Division winners win 125
    Most points wins 125
    Toilet bowl winner(winner of e bracket for teams not in playoffs) wins 75

    Buy in is 125

    That's a tough one there....technically what we are doing is illegal even though gambling is legal here in Nevada. You can go to e casinos here and play with people you don't know but as far as somewhere online probably not. I play in 2 money leagues. One is back in Tennessee that I have been a part of for years. I just fly back to town for my draft

    Yahoo is my favorite, but I don't like all of those extra scoring rules...

    Looks like that Julio TD sealed it for you.

    I think the defensive scoring needs to be brought down a touch....but our commissioner is a pretty cool guy. He just puts things to a vote and if it passes them it goes through. If not, quit your b1tchin lol
