Very disappointed that I won’t be able to attend a drunken Thanksgiving NFL get together, which we have managed in one form or another for 4 of the last 5 years, I think.
To console myself, I am going to run a free mini-fantasy game for the 3 games taking place on Thanksgiving – with a very desirable prize on offer!
The real games
Texans @ Lions – 5.30 pm
Football Team @ Cowboys – 9.30 pm
Ravens @ Steelers – 1.30 am
The fantasy game
Pick a fantasy team as follows:
Your fantasy line-up must contain 1 from each of the 6 teams playing on Thanksgiving. So, for example, if you pick Matthew Stafford as your QB, you couldn’t have the Lions defence.
I will use the standard default nfl.com scoring (full details at https://digitalcare.nfl.com/hc/en-us/articles/215282437-Scoring - but it is essentially point-per-reception, and otherwise completely standard)
If possible I will post in-progress scores after the first and second games are finished (tiredness / drunkenness permitting…). Scoring and prize giving will be done by me ASAP, so if there are later stat corrections announced, they won’t be used
An XL size Ryan Fitzmagic t-shirt to the winner! (It was going to be a spot prize at the Originals live draft day, but that was another victim of COVID)
- Send me your entry as a private message, either on here or on the Fan Pub Discord site.
- One entry per person.
- Entries no later than 12 hours before kick off (i.e. 5.30 am UK time) – so I have time to check for errors, and to publish a full list of entries well before the first kick off – it is a working day for me!
- If two or more people get identical winning scores, I will contact them with a tiebreaker question
Am posting this early to give people advance notice, but I’ll do a reminder nearer the date.
