NFL Team Fantasy League

I'm starting up a new fantasy-type competition for this 2013 season, aimed at all of you NFL diehards/dorks/enthusiasts. I want to see who the best prognosticator in all the land is.

NFL Team Fantasy League

Goal: I really like how fantasy football gives fans the chance to follow different players from across the NFL that they wouldn't normally care about. The objective of this league is to give you a reason to care about the outcomes of games from throughout the league that you might not normally care about.

Before the Season:

Over/Under NFL Team Regular Season wins - In this league, you will select either the OVER or the UNDER for each of the 32 NFL teams before the season begins. I will provide the master list (shown below), providing the specific number of wins for each team.

Example: Green Bay over/under 10.5: If you think they win 11 or more games, you pick OVER. If you think they win 10 or fewer games, you pick UNDER. Rinse & repeat for each team. It's that simple.

Smallprint: You CAN push. Example: Arizona's over/under is at 6. If you're confident they win 6 games exactly, then you may pick PUSH. If they win 6, the PUSHers would receive 1 point, while both the OVERs and the UNDERs would receive 0 points.

Week to week:

Swap: For the first 9 weeks of the season, you will have the opportunity to make a "swap", essentially switching one of your picks from OVER to UNDER or from UNDER to OVER (or PUSH, if you so desire). You can only make 1 swap per week. You can choose not to make a swap. You will not receive an extra swap the next week, NO carry over.

Locked in: Once you swap a pick, you cannot swap them again for the rest of the season. That pick is locked in.

Penalty: There will be a 1 point penalty for missing a swapped pick. Example: Chiefs look bad in Week 1, you switch your pick from OVER to UNDER. They end up going 15-1, you receive -1 points.

Confidence points: For the first 9 weeks of the season, you have the opportunity to add 2 "confidence points" to your picks - 1 for an AFC team and 1 for an NFC team. Any confident points added to a correct pick are added to your final total.

Max - You can only add 2 confidence points per team.

Smallprint - Any confidence points added to a pick before swapping that pick at a later point are negated. Example: Add 1 confident point to "Seattle OVER pick" following Week 1, swap from OVER to UNDER following Week 6, and then get the pick correct - only receive 1 point. The prior confidence point was forfeited. 


1 point for each correct pick (32 points possible)
0 points for each incorrect pick
-1 point for each incorrect "swap" pick
9 weeks of confidence points (x2 = 18 points possible)
Total points possible - 50

Cost - $20 (+ a small service fee if you pay online ---> Pay Online)

Payout - 100% redistribution, dependent on number of entries. I no want no money.

Deadline - Before Baltimore/Denver kick off - September 5, 7 P.M.
