Thanksgiving Free Fantasy game

Hi folks!

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

The prize

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)

Entry rules

  • 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.

Cheers, Jon

Just to confirm, I will still run this game even though Ravens Steelers is postponed to Sunday
