Wondering if anyone of us FBG has been in the top 70 in any of the first 3 weeks of the Best Buy contest (and thus got "in the money") ?

And/or what is your current overall ranking.

jsteaker here currently at #80 spot overall.

Overall 4918 560Last Week 29151 159 The BestBuy contest is hard. I'd like to see the winners' teams. Last week I had DDavis (my tag player) and Q. $240 is not enough when a decent kicker costs almost $20.

Haven't been in the prizes or $$. Ranked 158. 1 to 2 points can be the difference between 10-30 ranking spots or more.Good luck. I had Gannon last week as one of my QBs.......he went down like a clown.

I've been participating with minimal success. In week two I made Deuce McAllister my Best Buy Tag player. Last week it was Kevin Jones. It's safe to say that those guys didn't do quite as well as I hoped they would.

Last week I had 213. My duds were:- Green Bay Defense, 0 points - don't know what I was thinking- Keyshaun Johnson, 2 points - knew the Cowboys would put up good pass #s, but I picked the wrong WR.Currently sitting in 1710th place overall.

I'm at 783 points overall....The key to this thing is to nail your tag player...I am starting to wonder if it makes sense to tag a defense since they get 3pts per sack, int etc...THoughts??

I am definitely doing something wrongPoints last week: 144Points overall: 718Rank last week: 19941Rank overall: 3394 That 240 cap is tough to balance out. I been going with the higher RBs since the WRs seems like anyone could score (have been using TO).

Well, if Im not pretty high this week I'm gonna have to reconsider even playing :wall: QB:I am starting DCulpepper with the DoubleTag , Chris Simms (my biggest miss here, but double tagging C-Pep should help make up for it - simms was the cheapest starting QB I could find)RB:I started T.Barber, CMartin, ESmith - all scored and had decent games, Barber a big game (MMoore was not available - I wanted him for really cheap!)WR:I started R.Moss, K.Johnson, RWayne - all three score Moss had 2 TDsTE:I started FJones - he got a TD, not much elsePK:I started DBrien and NKaeding - both did ok, not spectacularD:Atlanta - thought theyd get more against Det. but I think they still got around 15 points with sacks and FFI put SAlexander as my tiebreakerWhat's my chances this week?Mike

What's your name? I'll look for you in the winner's circle this week... ;) I, too, started Culpepper, and flip flopped between tagging him or Alexander this week. :wall: Guess which I tagged? Well, Alexander didn't exactly SUCK this week, so I still did alright. Had a few others that did well, like Eric Johnson, Duce Staley, and Artose Pinner...

My name is Mike Behnke - I had to add up my points - 249 prior to any stat changes by the NFL. Good enough last week for #2! Course, 2 of the 4 weeks I woulda still be outta the prizes, so we'll have to see how this week ends up scoring.

If anyone would like to use it, I came up with a points calculator for the Best Buy Game, you can download it from www.mikebehnke.com/ff/ - look for the file BestBuyPointsCalc.xls

Good luck to all playing!

This contest is one of the best things (free) going on the net, IMO (even though I really stunk it up the first four weeks). A free fantasy game, and you can’t beat the prizes.I think I hit a pretty week this time around, with the following lineup:McCown and Brees (5 TDs combined, for a total salary of mid-20’s)Chris Brown (tagged=huge), Shaun Alexander, Tatum Bell (oops)Javon Walker, Derrick Mason, Larry Fitzgerald (One TD each, total around 300 yds)F. JonesDoug Brien and Gary AndersonAri Def (7 TO/sacks)Even considering the hole in my lineup at RB3, I put up a pretty decent week- 257 by my calcs. I’m anxiously awaiting the published results. Even a $25 gift card would be sweet-after all, it was free to enter. Of course, it’s hard not to think about one of those huge HDTV’s in my living room…Good luck to you, too, Mike.

Anyone know when they post the scores? I'm expecting a big week as well...which is probably bad beacuse with everyone expecting a big # just a couple of points is gonna cost a few hundred positions....

I think there may be a problem with the stats at this point...it shows me at 137, but I calculated 257. Also, it has Chris Brown at at 20, and Shaun Alexander at 46 - both are quite far off, I believe. Stay tuned.

The scoring is definitely off they have c.brown with 10 points (supposed to be 10pts per rushing td) and they have mare with 1 pt (he didn't play).

They have Steve Christie with 7, Zereoue with 0, and Curtis Martin with 40...I did not notice any errors in prior weeks, but this one is crazy...

My team totals seem to be corrected now...I'm still hoping the overall standings will change, though, as they are the same as when I checked 1 1/2 hours ago (and I'm still not in them).

Last week I was ranked #14 overall, this week I blew the big one and dropped to something like #130. 2 of the first 3 weeks I missed winning a prize by like 10 points and one was the DVD Recorder - D'OH. After week 3 I was sitting at #21 with 3 solid weeks and thinking the game was easy, but after 2 bad weeks I'm not so sure anymore.FYI, somehow I went from #21 to #14 between weeks 3 and 4 with only 117 points so I assume that no one is doing well week to week. On a side note, it kinda sucks that only the top person wins at the end of the year. That said, it's a free contest and I'm not going to write my congressman over it or anything.

I think it's deffeinalty getting harder as the weeks progress. I started out on fire because I was confident in C Mart and Roy Williams who were good values at the time. Unfortuanlty the first 3 weeks I picked someone who flopped big time.Week 1: Andre Johnson - 5Week 2: Brandon Lloyd - 0, O Smith 8 (missed gift cert. by 15, if I tag CMart instead of Brooks I win the DVD recorder)Week 3: DD - 2 (scored 253 this week w/ him, took out Tiki at the last minute)Looking back at my squads there doesn't seem to be much similarities in them other than picking what I think is the best RB and WR for the week and going from there.Edited to add that I give up on Amani Toomer. . .. at a value of 5 I keep wating for him to break out but he's been killing me. So, my advice to you JUMP ALL OVER HIM. I can almost guarontee you 125 yds and 2 TDs. . .. He'll you might as well tag him too.
