I'm in with week one picks made.
of course I'll probably change a bunch of them as game time gets closer.

Thanks for setting this up.

I hate Yahoo. I joined this and the Survival league, however it won't display both of the leagues when I bring up the Fantasy section. It's a hassle to try to find a link where I can actually access the leagues that I am involved in. I wish they would fix the elementary problems with their website.

Now it's showing up. Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't. Swell.

Survival and Pick-em are both considered separate games in yahoo. They're not considered "fantasy football", at least as far as I can tell. These links should get you there every time: Survival (http://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/survival), Pick-em (http://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/pickem)

Thanks, that's helpful.

If it helps I like to bookmark the fantasy pages I prefer to start on when going to make my picks. I imagine you've done that, but just a suggestion that has served me well in the past.

9-4 so far, 2 games back of the lead. Not bad for an opening weekend, though I'm disappointed in Arizona and downright pissed at LaVonte David.

It seems like every game that is a tough pick, my team always falls into a 10-0 hole within 5 minutes of the opening kickoff. :choke:

Belated congrats to HOU-TEX and GlassHalfFull, the winners of weeks 1 and 2, respectively. :tiphat: :bowdown:

What a mess last week was for most of us. Man! To make it worse many of us, myself included, seemingly had two games in the bag (GB/Cin, Atl/Mia) only to see it go away in a puff of smoke. Minnesota screwed us all...lol.

Congrats to TD, this week's winner with 11 right, and kmg365, who had 11 right as well, but was clipped in the tie-breaker. :clap:

Watch, this week's going to suck too. That goes for Survivor as well.

I'm already gone in the Survivor league. Three weeks; three strikes.
Hahahahahaha

I'm really angry at myself in the pick 'em league because the first two weeks I outsmarted myself into at least half a dozen bad picks. That's what I get for listening to the talking heads

I've got two strikes. I think I'm just going to pick against the jags from here on out.

Yeah... do that. That desperation strategy worked so well for me when I picked against the Browns.

Hey if it doesn't work, Indy loses. If it does work, you're still golden.

I did terrible last week in pick-em but I'm still unscathed in Survival. This week looks tough since most of the teams I like enough to pick this week are on the road. Eight of the home teams this week are underdogs so there are bound to be a few upsets.

I've had a brutal go of it also but the bright side is that I tend to like the league more when it is unpredictable and there is a/some real shift in power going on. The AFC is looking stronger this year and the NFC isn't nearly as strong as most of us perceive methinks.

Yeah, I thought last week was the week I would make a big push up the ladder. So much for that thought. :mad:

I'm usually gone by now in Survival but so far so good. No red Xs yet. I repeat, YET.

It shows you have one strike in the Survival league. You picked Buffalo week 3.

Good job. :texflag: I fell off in the last quarter of the season and am locked into 13th.

I'm considering firing myself and looking for a replacement self so I can crack the top 5 next season. (I'll bet I end up wanting too much freedom of my picks and too much money, though) :D

Lucky Guess is....Lucky (surprise).

Took the Texans to win 8 times this season. I was right twice, and finished 10-6 on Texans games. Still can't believe they were that bad.
