2011 NFL Playoffs: Stampede Blue Fantasy Football Challenge

For our fourth straight season, we'll once again be running our Stampede Blue Playoff Fantasy Football Challenge. We've continually grown each year, and expect this year to be the same.

Some rules for you: For the contest, you take 3 QBs, 4 RBs, 5 WRs, 2 TE, 2 K, and 2 DEF. You'll keep these players for the entire duration of the Playoffs. There is no re-choosing after each weekend. That makes it much more difficult to choose players, as some obviously don't play until next weekend. I'll repeat so it's clear: You are choosing players for the entire duration of the Playoffs. There will be no chance to re-choose after the first game starts.

The other catch is that you can only choose 3 players from any given team. That means, if you think the Packers will win the Super Bowl, you can't take every Packers player, going for broke. It makes you choose different teams.

Like last year, I have put in some checks for the position and team rules, so you won't be able to choose 7 Packers. I'm going to trust I've coded it up right, but you should double check before submitting, so that if something does slip through, I don't have to disqualify the entry. Along these lines, if you use "NoScript" on Firefox, enable the scripting for the linked page. Otherwise, the checks won't work. Please check your team before you submit. I'm not responsible if there are technical issues and I have to disqualify your entry.

To get more entries, feel free to submit up to 3 different teams. Be sure to label them as "1", "2", and "3" if you do (mine would be "mgrex03 1", "mgrex03 2", "mgrex03 3"). The first Playoff game starts at 4:30 ET Saturday, so all entries need to be in by then, and no submissions after that will be accepted. I'll throw up a couple of reminders throughout the week, so that the most people get involved. I'll update standings after each weekend, complete with how many players everyone has left. You can see your picks here, so you know who you picked. Any other questions, shoot me an email (bottom of page).

Scoring is after the jump.

Good Luck to Everyone!

Stampede Blue Playoff Fantasy Football Challenge 2011

Here's how the scoring works (it will look very familiar to anyone who played Stampede Blue FFL this year):

  • Passing Yards -> 25 yds = 1 pt
  • Rush/Rec Yards -> 10 yds = 1 pt
  • Reception -> 1 pt.
  • Pass/Rush/Rec TD -> 6 pts
  • Interception/Fumble Lost -> (-2) pts
  • Extra Point -> 1 pt.
  • FG < 40 yds -> 3 pts
  • FG 40-49 yds -> 4 pts
  • FG 50+ yds -> 5 pts
  • Defensive INT / Fumble Recovery ->2 pts
  • Sacks -> 1 pt
  • Safety -> 2 pts
  • Def / Return TD -> 6 pts
  • Pts. Allowed
    • 0 Pts -> 10 pts
    • Pts 2 - 6 -> 7 pts
    • Pts 7 - 13 -> 4 pts
    • Pts 14 -> 1 pt

A minor clarification: A player who returns a kick/punt for a TD will get credit for a return TD, as well as the team. For example, if Randall Cobb would return a punt for a TD, he'd get 6 points, as well as the Packers Defense.

Again, any questions, shoot me an email.
