That's good.  I went big out of the gate in game one and now find myself without those points...

Started filling mine out on thursday and stopped for whatever reason, and of course forgot to come back to finish it. Get my dropped week out of the way early.

Two questions because different leagues have different rules. First, can I just pick tonight's game, or do I have to submit them all together, and second, should I rank the game I'm most confident in as one or sixteen?

 Yes, you can just pick tonight's game and come back later to make your Sunday and Monday picks. I believe the rule is the pick has to be in 5 minutes prior to gametime. 

16 is your most confident pick, 1 is your least.

Good to know. I'm kind of stunned that I'm in second place when there are people who had better records than me and I literally just ordered out the confidence picks 1 through 16.

16 points on the Hawks today. Also put 12 on the Raiders. I got caught in the hype!!

I'm not pissed about the Hawks cause what're you gonna do? They got upset. As for the Raiders, clearly I overestimated their worth, and that D is not what I thought it would be.

Yeah, the Raiders D has a long way to go. 2 straight games giving up 35 points. That secondary is a sieve.

 Allright, Week 2 is in the bag. I take Week 2 honors with a 10-6 record and 98 points. Ramsay B takes second at 9-7 and 88 points, with Bronze Stones in third at 9-7 with 87 points. The leaderboard is a bit weird this week due to the fact that our lowest total gets dropped. The leaderboard looks a little something like this...

 

1 Bronze Stones 111 87 10-6
2 Highgarden Hungry Hippos 101 86 11-5
3 Tywin 101 78 9-7
4 JJ Lannister 100 72 10-6
5 Lumpy the Greek 98 80 10-6
6 Joe Pesci 95 82 10-6
7 dbunting 91 60 8-8
8 Ramsay B 88 30 9-7
9 Chicken Parm You Taste So Good 86 80 10-6
10 White Harbor Bakers 86 80 9-7
11 Sunspear Shariffs 84 76 9-7
12 Black Water Rush 82 59 8-8
13 Trickster 0 0 0-16

Might work better if you cut it and pasted it into Notepad.  Then copy the Notepad and paste it to the board.  Sometimes I use that method to clear oddball formatting.

I'll give that a shot. I don't think I did anything differently last week.

 

/Bingo! Thank you kind sir.

I blew 16 pts on Hawks, which is understandable considering they were playing the stinky Rams.  No shame in that pick.  I am embarrassed of putting 12 pts on the Raiders.  Clearly overestimated their defensive skill.  Lost 9 pts on Packers and can't be upset with that either. Welp, that's my lowest week thus far. 

I like the Pack to come back this week a la R-E-L-A-X style, and putting 16 on them.  On the opposite end of the pole, I'm putting 1 pt on the Texans.  I don't like the looks of that game at all.  Not to mention it's a mysterious Thursday nighter.  

Good luck everyone.
