Are punters eligible?
I sort of get wdleehi's point; I can't imagine there will be any week where a position other than QB wins this thing. Every week, QBs throw for 300+ yards; has any RB or WR done that? Even if you counted returned punts and kickoffs, I doubt you'd ever see a non-QB win.
That said, if it turns into "best QB wins", there's no real harm in that (although I sort of like Redz' idea. Week 1, QBs; Week 2, WRs; Week 3, RBs, etc. It would kind of mix things up.)
No, but FG kickers are. I took Wdleehi's comments to heart, (and I had intimated having to do something with the QB problem in the original rules), and changed the rules to being able to pick one game a week per player, which takes care of that problem, (I think).
Here's the updated rules:Rules Update:
So here's the updated "deal", as it were:
I'm going to void (ignore) last night's game, (as there were tweaks needed to be made), and revise the rules - the "Game Week" will run from Tuesday through Monday, and the new week/void list will begin each Tuesday, meaning you can choose one game/week, starting Tuesday thru Monday night, new picks can be made after midnight Monday night, or 12:00:01 AM Tuesday morning.
If you want to pick a QB/player for a Monday Night Football game, then you can't choose in a Sunday game, etc., (pretty understandable, I think). The calendar resets after midnight Monday night. Therefor the "official" first game will begin this Sunday, September 11, (let me know if any problems).
Since it's a once-a-week thing now, I'm thinking we can make the booty equal seven times the number of players, as that would equal the same payout of a PAPOUG or PAPTBG game, and hopefully entice more people to play. I think this will be a fair system and one that will give everybody plenty of players to choose from.
The Void List will still be "seven" days long, but each day is represented by an actual week, meaning if you pick a player for your first game and win
with that player, you are not eligible to pick that same player again until week eight
, (seven day-weeks after). This will also make it possible for others to get the hot players/QBs, and avoid any monopolies.
