For Survivor
https://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/survival/register/joingroup

Use the Group IDs above (on the links) or below

Survival: 9688
Pick-em: 21997
Spread: 22007
Confidence : 22005

And use SuperBowl51home as password like JC said

For Pick'em, looks like I can invite through email, but that means you have to send me your email address.
Joining the group by yourself works, but if you want me to invite, just send me your address.

For NFL Survivor , it looks like there is no way for me to invite.

I'm in all the pick'em groups. Historically I sucked at survivor group games so I didn't bother this year.
Thanks for getting us started.

I joined the Pick-em, but it keeps giving me this message for the Survival league:

Thanks for setting this up!

For those new to this, use the Survivor link for the Survival code (9688). Use the pickem link for the other three codes.

I got errors saying I was "already a member of this group". Not sure why, but I'm in.

Also, you might consider starting another survivor group with the 3 strikes format. The current one is a true suicide pool, i.e. one and done....

Yeah, just 14 playing the Pick 'em game, which might be the fewest we've ever seen.

I'm in like Flynn on all 4 games. Just in the nick of time. Now on to making my picks...

Got JJ?
Am I the only one that hates Thursday night games?
I'm with you. Strictly as a selfish viewer I enjoy NFL games whenever they are played. But from an athlete standpoint I think it sucks, let alone unfair from a preparation angle.

No. I'm not a fan of them either.
Short prep week for the teams.
Short recovery week, as Showtime said, for the players.
And I keep forgetting to set up my FF team lineup because I'm used to doing it on weekends. LoL

I'm in (albeit late) on Pick'em. I'm not good at any of these games. I tend to overthink everything, then overly stress over last week.

Interesting that it's Vikings 51% Titans 49%

I took the Titans.

In each game, as a group, I thought we all fared pretty well for it being Week 1. In the straight up Pick 'Em game I went 11-5 and 10 others are either tied or ahead of me.

I can remember past Week 1's and 11-5 would have bought you the sole lead with half of us with our first strike in Survivor.

I went 10-6 opening week and was sitting 18th. I saw the NYJ/Buffalo game as a toss-up and decided to go Buffalo with them being the home team. I am quite surprised more than half the league went with the Jets for that game.

In survival, quite a few of us went Seattle and got bailed out with the Seahawks scoring a TD late in the game. That's the first one of many I'm sure that's going to make us sweat it out.

Lol, yeah. I chose the "safe" bet for the always-mysterious Week 1 and just about lost as you pointed out. My better half took SF and I thought she was on drugs. Go figger.

I thought for sure Buffalo would win last night (see my 10 confidence points go down the drain). As for Week 2 in general, there are some head scratchers this week.

Well, I picked the Jets to win but only stuck one C-pt on it. It was one game I just couldn't really read. Rex's D usually gives Fitzmagic problems and after week 1 I didn't see Tyrod putting up any real numbers - especially with Watkins having a gimpy wheel.

I picked the Jets on a hunch I had which as it turned out was right. But I only had it at like 2 or 3 on the confidence points meter.

I actually had LA winning that game. Maybe I missed something but I thought they were a decent team last year? They looked like the worst team in the league Monday night. I wasn't expecting that.

Thanks to the Packers looking like scrubs (or maybe the Vikes' D making them look like scrubs :D) I have two strikes already.

Pick 1 RB

Rawls or Michael against SF

Or Langford against Dal


I think Langford is about to be in a committee backfield and the other backs are already in a committee! :(

I'm realizing more & more how awful I am at picking games this year. A measly 7-6-1 outcome for me. By the way, taking a quick peak at next weeks slate of games, there is a particular game that drew my interest. San Diego @ Denver. Why did this game draw my interest? These teams just played last week. It seems like a schedule glitch when you play the same divisional opponent that close to each other.
