#1

OKAY peoples - this is my favourite NFL fantasy game so every year really try to push this so please if you do decide to enter one of my fantasy NFL money game please make it this one. This is a game Dougie (aka McBear) and myself (aka bluelionman) put an awful lot of work into running.

NFL FANTASY GRIDIRON 2017/18

(American Football)

This game is a resurrection of the now defunct ‘First Down’ American Football newspaper fantasy football game. So will be familiar to those of you that used to play that publications fantasy NFL football game back in the day!

However unlike that game this version runs for the entire NFL season (from September 7th, 2017 thru to the Super Bowl final on February 4th, 2018).

The cost of entry will be £15 per team which will go to make up the prize fund.
£10 from each entry fee will go to make up the 1st prize and £5 to the 2nd prize.
So it’s simple - the more entrants the bigger the 2 prizes.

HOW TO PLAY

All you have to do is pick a team of players from the list provided following this link:

NFL Players List (GridIron Game) 2017/18

However you must stay within the budget of $48 Million. Just create your team by filling in the form at the end of this e-mail and send it to me before the deadline which is the start of the first game of the NFL regular season - (Thursday 7th September). The system is simple. You must select one Quarter-Back, two Running Backs, one Tight End, two Wide Receivers, a Kicker, a Head Coach and a Team Defense.

Anyone who scores a touchdown gets six points, just like the real thing. If a *Quarterback throws a touchdown pass he also scores three points. If anyone returns a fumble or an interception for a TD then the Defense scores six, they also score two for a safety. Kickers get three points for a field goal and one for extra points (PAT’s - Point After Touchdown‘s), while anyone scoring a two-point conversion scores two points. If a *QB throws a two-point pass he scores an additional one.

*Also any other player who acts as a QB and throws a TD pass or two-point conversion will also score the relevant QB throwing points. For example a Kicker or Running Back on trick plays.

Head Coach scoring

Your Head Coach will score three points for every game his team wins and one point for any game that finishes as tied in the regular season. However Head Coach’s will score 6 points for post season wins.

Also Head Coach’s will earn a bonus of 6 points if their team makes the playoffs. This bonus is doubled (to 12) if your coach is your original HC and you have not changed him at all since the commencement of the game. Only the HC on your teams roster at the end of the regular season (WK 17) qualifies for the bonus points (if applicable) and these points are added to the Head Coach’s score for Week 17. Also a further bonus of 6 points is awarded to each Head Coach that wins their division - this bonus is awarded and applied to all applicable Head Coach’s in Week 17 (However please note - there is no doubling up of this bonus for original HC’s).

Additionally in this game (different from how from First Down’s was) Defenses will incorporate special teams plays - so all punt and kick off returns that go for a TD will earn 6 points for the relevant Defense.

Finally points will be doubled for the final itself (the Super Bowl).

Scores will be worked out using the official stats on the NFL’s website (nfl.com).

Every entrant will be sent an e-mail listing everyone’s teams between the start of NFL Week 1’s first game and the main tranche of games that start on the Sunday (September 10th). This is so you can see everything is open and above board, as well as allowing you to follow the season more closely on TV and via the internet, if you so choose. (You’ll even be able to work out the team points for yourself should you like to).

A weekly league chart will be made up and sent via e-mail along with each teams individual player scores for that week so you can see how you are doing compared to your rivals.

TRADES - You can trade up to three player/positions at each trade window. Your team’s value still cannot exceed $48 million after you have traded. You do not have to trade, your team can remain the same from start to finish. However you must submit your trade(s) before the start of the following weeks games by e-mail to me at this address :- BLM e-mail click here. Please make sure you put NFL Trades in the subject header line. Updated team line up e-mails will be distributed to everyone ASAP after the trade deadlines.

There are 3 trade windows during the season, they are:

1) between Weeks 6 and 7 (trades will take effect from Thur. Oct. 19th 2017).

2) between Weeks 11 and 12 (trades will take effect from Thur. Nov. 23rd 2017).

3) Between the end of the Regular Season and the start of the Playoffs (trades will take effect from Sat. January 6th 2018).

So that’s it - BEST OF LUCK - Noel (aka bluelionman)

Thank you for taking part in this game - I’m really sorry it has taken me this long to get teams typed out and sent to all. I have been overwhelmed with the response this year - receiving 19 entries this year so that will make it £190 to first place and £95 to second (once I have collected it all in).

Any way McBear (Douglas Hay) will now be doing the scoring and sending weekly updates out to all those involved.

Do please consult the rules (original post in this thread) for when transfers are permitted and how to go about making them. (First window is after NFL Week 6 before NFL Week 7 starts.).

HEADS UP / REMINDER

NFL FD Gridiron Game (Season Long) - Trade Window 3

Hey Ya’ll,

Now is our final trade window. You can change up to 3 players but your team must remain within the budget of $48m. You may only choose players from the players list here:

NFL Players List (GridIron Game) 2017/18

However any players not listed you can request and I will add them - price will be based on a number of factors - team depth chart listing, season ranking and all number of other factors to try and be fair.

You must have submitted your trades to reach me before the start of the first game of the Play-Offs (which is 9:35pm UK time Saturday 6th January 2018). Any problems or queries don’t hesitate to contact me.

If everyone submits their trades to me earlier I can get everyone’s final line ups out before the play-off games start.

Rules to take note of now are Head Coaches score 6 points for post season wins and all points are doubled for the Super Bowl itself (meaning winning Head Coach of S/B will score 12 points for that game).

Best Regards,

Noel (bluelionman)

PS For those of you that have done badly this season in this game or even those of you doing well and that like this game there is a stand alone Play Off version of this game - e-mail was already sent out to those in my fantasy games contact list that I think like fantasy NFL games but any one is welcome to join in - if you would like to partake find more information here:

Well finally I have won my favourite non draft type fantasy game - and I really didn’t think I could this year entering post season (after the last trade window) in 11th position. However it just goes to show that a huge margin can be overcome if you make the right guess on which teams will make the Super Bowl and get enough players scoring in that game on double bubble. NEVER GIVE UP - I guess has to be the fantasy managers motto. I will be in touch imminently with the runners up who tied for 2nd place and thus share that prize. A big thank you goes to all of you who played this year - those of you who did not please think about doing this game next year as it’s great fun and does not require a lot of your time over the season to play. It is by far my favourite non draft type on-line fantasy NFL game bar none!

Lastly a special mention and REALLY BIG thank you must go to Douglas Hay (aka McBear) who does all the scoring and without whose help this game (and the stand alone Play Off version) would not still be running.

Best regards,

Noel Symonds (bluelionman)
