I just wanted to invite people to a fantasy game that everyone can play together, with no draft, and a big prize.

It's run by NBC and it is a weekly fantasy challenge.

Website is here:
http://100k.nbcsports.com/nfl_peg/index2/

Register and sign-up. Once you are in, you'll see a red toolbar ("Make Picks," "Standings" etc). Put your mouse on Groups and "Join New Group."

Number: 347
Password: scottwright


It is a different game. You set a new lineup every week. You have to start 2 QBs, 2 RBs, 3 WRs, 1 TE, 1 PK, 1 DEF. The trick is that you can only use a player ONCE all season long, so you have to choose wisely.

You also start a BONUS SNF Player each week. You can pick any player playing in the SNF game (it doesn't matter if you have used him in a previous week or if you are playing him that current week or what not,) and that player will score DOUBLE points for the week.

Strategy changes every week, injuries don't effect you as much, but it takes research and determination. I hope some people will try it out!

If you look on your cable, it will tell you. Like, if you have digital cable, the call letters are the four letters for the NBC station. Just turn on NBC, and the call letters should pop up at some point.

Alright Scotty, just run your Mouse over "Groups" and the third option should be Join New Group

This looks like a lot of fun. I just hope I will remember to update it every week.

I figure, as long as I'm doing well, I'll remember. Top 5% make the playoffs, Top 25 get prizes. Top 25 outside of the playoffs win stuff too.

And anyone can join this, no specific number of people?

And, pretty much you can start anyone you want, you just have to choose wise cause you can only start them once?

Exactly, and as many people can join as you want. So, more people should go for it! :)

apparently u have to live in the united states. no Canadian options, therefore, no potential prizes.

The chances of any of us winning prizes anyway are slim, just sign up :)

This is gonna be fun as hell. I like this setup. Seems to be a lot more strategy involved here as opposed to traditional fantasy. I've got my preliminary week 1 roster set, and likely won't make more than 1 or 2 changes between now and the start of the season. How do we view the league members? Do we have to wait until after week 1? I just wanted to know how many people have signed up. I'd imagine everybody who sees this thread would.

ok i'm in! So there is no draft, you just choose any players you want and place them in the week you want them to play in?

Shane P. Hallam
08-28-2007, 09:47 PM
Yup.

After Week 1 you'll be able to see everyone...
