    Man that's a wining lineup! But you might have to go a little contrarian to win this thing out.. once you use a player does he carry forward and "lock in" - and it this based on most points scored in the end?

    If any of my players win, i can use them for the next round or i can change them. If any of them lose, then i have to replace them.

    The scoring system explained:
    The fantasy points accumulated by each player during one (1) weekly scoring period will be multiplied by the number of consecutive weeks in which the player has been on your roster assuming such player's team progresses through the playoffs. A player can earn bonus point multipliers of 2x, 3x or 4x for a given week based on the number of weeks they were on the fantasy team roster. For example: A user selects Tom Brady, NE in the Wild Card round. Brady earns 15 fantasy points in the first weekly scoring period therefore the participant is awarded 15 points for the first weekly scoring period. If NE advances to the Divisional Playoffs and the participant selects to keep Brady on his/ her roster for the second consecutive weekly scoring period, and Brady earns 20 fantasy points in his Divisional Playoff game, the participant will earn 40 points for the second consecutive weekly scoring period (20 x 2 = 40). Those 40 points will be added to the 15 points earned in the first weekly scoring period for a two-week total of 55 points (15 + 40 = 55). In addition, a user can select Tom Brady, NE in the Wild Card round even if the New England Patriots have a bye into the Divisional Round. In this case, the user would not earn any points for the Wild Card round, but would then be eligible to earn “double points” in the Divisional round, since Brady was on the team’s roster for 2 weekly scoring periods.

    The way to win is being able to guess who the two teams are in the Super Bowl and riding those players the whole 4 weeks. I'm going steelers/seahawks

    Well my all Bronco plus Greg Olsen is panning out. Just the broncos offense scores so little, but almost everyone has cards and pats sooooooo I will be 3x on almost my whole team while everyone else will be single but they have a big lead from playing pats and cards players

    Brady was hit a season-high 23 times in a 20-18 loss to the Denver Broncos. Entering the game, Brady hadn't been hit more than 12 times.
