I'm currently 269th with 154.25 and this left:

 

Ben R -43.95

Conner -4.8

J. Washington -10.7

J. Reed -5.3

D. Hopkins -23.6

Skins D -12

 

Given my low RB2 score, a big game from Conner will help me more than most. And a decent game from Reed would be big for me too. Going to come down to those 2 alone. Honestly didn't think I'd be near the Turk at all this week missing Gordon and Fournette.

3 above the line now.  Conner is moving the line big time.

I'm in trouble.  I'm 5 below the cutline right now but Conner is scoring for me so that's good.  I do have some guys on Monday night D. Goedart and J. Reed (-2.4, -12.6).   I also have C. Clement (-12.6) but I don't expect him to score enough to help me.

I'm back below the cutline

 

My season will likely hang on the performance of Jordan Reed tomorrow. I guess that's better than I expected this week, but still a precarious position.

 

ETA: .9 points below the cut after Sunday games.

Welp - with Trubisky and Darnold out, that Brees stinker is going to have to count.  Barring a miracle I’ll finish one step short of the final again :wall:

If you’re going to go out do so in flaming trainwreck style!

123.65, #490 :lmao: 

My obit was written on Thursday night.  Good luck to the finalists!

I'm seeing 125 owners left with Goedert, and no one else with ownership above 42-45 (Ertz/Reed).  Interesting that it's all TEs.

Am I missing anyone?

Seems like if that's the case the line won't likely move much tomorrow.

With 2 games to play, I'm at 171.75 (14.8 above the cut)

Rivers-43.95  lol

Conner-10.5

Goedert-2.4

Hopkins-0

 

I *think* I'm OK, but still nervous...

 

 

Heading into MNF, I'm 10.9 above the cut with Goedert-2.4 and Hopkins-0

Should be heading to next week :) ....but likely without Conner :(

What are the chances of a lot of fumbles tomorrow and the cut line decreasing by 10?

:(

Entry 100226 Rank: 186 (Score: 179.15)

Cutoff Rank: 250 (Score: 171.25) 

Well  another monday night sweating the Turk, This is farther than ever so alls good

Have Hopkins -23.6 not a chance to move there

Redskins -5  could 7 times they have scored 6 or more and even 1 point might help

Ghost entry?

Ghost of QG's dead entry

 

I'm sitting at 237.75 (4th place) and moving on. Nearly 100 pts. from TEs Kelcy/Cook and Fairbairn to carry me.

I feel your misery!  

Knocked out by 0.5 pts in Week 11 due to the Monster MNF KC-LAR game.....  

I just like to monitor how I would have fared if "still alive".....  and I would be gone this week anyway...  (14 below with Goedert -4.8) so it matters not.

How do people monitor their "ghost entries"? I don't see any way to see on the FBG or Calcomatic site, but maybe I'm missing something somewhere.   Is it scoring by hand?

Right there with you, only about 20 spots ahead.  done at 132,   Brees' Thursday night turd spelled doom.  Good luck to those moving on.

From week 14 through week 16, the top 250 teams will score points each week. The winner will be the team that accumulates the most total points in these 3 weeks. All 250 teams that advance to the final will have their scores reset so only the results from weeks 14 through 16 will count.

Gonna be fun.

If you follow the "See your team" link on the Inseason weekly page and then click on the link to your team, it shows your player scores even after you're eliminated. It doesn't total them, so you'll need to figure out which players would have counted and add their scores, but you don't have to search boxscores and do the math to calculate what each player scored.

Currently ranked 310 and about 5.5 points below the cutline.  I'm sure everyone can play this game, but T. Taylor, M. Gallup, and C. Clay all counting for me at this point in the contest.  What do all these players have in common?  They were missed by their QB for relatively long TDs :wall:  Had any of those plays connected I would be above the line right now.

Still have D. Goedart/J. Reed (-2.4, -12.6) and C. Clement (-12.6) so 🤞

Posted above, but it looks like the TEs are the ones that really matter for this competition.  They are the only players highly owned.

Sitting at 177.75, but Gronk only got me 7.1, and I still have Goedert tonight.  Never made it this far, here's hoping...

Calcomatic doesn't show any teams at 177.75, and none of the teams immediately above or below that have Gronk?

The good news is that Calcomatic says you're at 179.15. Every little bit helps.

179.35 (8 pts above cut line) with Goedert -9.9.  Not feeling comfy at all, but hopeful.  Here's to a lack of tight end action tonight 🍺

I'm 9 points behind you exactly, and there are 81 teams between us.  Looks like a ton of teams are clustered around the cut line right now.

Ah, must have missed some addition there. Didn't know about the Calc, that's pretty nifty.

A Darren Sproles sighting..  I’m not dead yet.  I assumed he was still out.  He’s at 7.7 points already, just need another 40....

Reed is counting for me now, I'm about 3 below the cutline, so I'll need at least 3 more receptions from him at least.  C. Clement is a 6.6 points from counting as well.

Here's my team:  http://calcomatic.com/EntryLive/109503

 

 

Me too, but I'm 1.5 points outside.

 

Need a catch for 1 yard and none of the 14 people ahead of me to have him.

Happy to make the final 250.  Thought I was sunk with no QB this week (Trubisky, Dalton, Darnold) and Fournette suspended.

Congrats to the others who made the finals.

Tell me about it... We both, probably, should send Fairbairn a nice-sized bottle of champagne.

Interesting...

203 of the remaining 250 have Mahomes.  It's not surprising, but it's still quite telling how one player can have such a big impact on the contest.

186 have CMC.

144 have both Mahomes and CMC.

 

Good luck to those who made it to the promised land, I will not be joining you.

I am one of the remaining 144 teams with Mahomes and CMC.

I am also one of the remaining 189 teams with an injured Conner.

I think the happiest guys have to be the 44 who have Mahomes and CMac, but NOT Conner...

Missed the cut by 3 points last night - this contest is dumb :lol:

 

I missed the cut by more than that, but hey, my squad went much further than expected.  It perhaps went much further than it deserved to go.

 

The storyline for this year's contest was cheap quarterbacks that way over-performed their value.  I benefited from this greatly.  It'll be interesting to see what next year's contest will bring us.
