OK I'm in - I'm going to setup a site for live scoring this year.

Live Scoring site is ready to go!

After much discussion, the official ruling is that Seattle's defense should get 5 points, not 7. The standings have been re-run and re-posted to reflect the correction, which changes the status of fou

Three staffers made the final cut, not eligible for prizes, Andy Hicks, Clayton Gray and yours truly, who was the #1 scorer last week.

My team and the number of remaining teams that the player is on.

QB Mariota 47, Hoyer 35 and Alex Smith 24 - seems odd that so few remaining teams have Smith

RB K. Hunt 225, Smallwood 80, L. Bell 74, D. Martin 53, Mack 31 and Ingram 7 - surprised that so few Ingrams around

WR C. Hogan 194, R. Anderson 110, D. Parker 100, Ginn 88, Agholor 44, C. Coleman 33, T. Smith 22, Fitzgerald 20, M. Lee 15 & Perriman 2

TE Ertz 153, Kittle 43, Rudolph 19 & J. Hill 2

PK Zuerlein 108, Walsh 100 & Forbath 21

DST Titans 52, Lions 39, Saints 30 & 49ers 26

Hogan hasn't been playing and closed the gap on Hunt ownership.

 I guess these oddities will happen but at least with that one it's somewhat explainable with Hogan only being $5 so unlikely to have been a major part of the roster construction plan.

I take it as a good omen have 13 of the same players as you including one of those with Alex Smith..Team 101699 (Zach Attacks)...some of our common big players with lower ownership (Alex Smith, Larry Fitzgerald & Kyle Rudolph - this week with Ertz out) belonged to only you and I amongst those that advanced.

QB Alex Smith - 24, Jared Goff -33, DeShone Kizer - 46 (Carson Palmer - 28, Sam Bradford - 34)

RB Kareem Hunt - 225, Christian McCaffery - 111, Rex Burkhead - 101, Dion Lewis - 32, Doug Martin - 53, Bilal Powell - 39, Thomas Rawls - 27 (Darren McFadden -20)

WR Larry Fitzgerald - 20, Adam Thielen - 51, Robby Anderson - 110, DeVante Parker - 100, Chris Hogan - 194, Paul Richardson - 85, Kendall Wright - 72 (Jeremy Kerley - 3)

TE Zach Ertz - 153. Kyle Rudolph - 19, George Kittle - 43

K Ryan Succop - 35, Blair Walsh - 100

DEF Tennessee Titans - 52, Cleveland Browns -37, Detroit Lions - 39

Here is my longshot

QB - Wilson - 41, Winston - 29

RB - Crowell - 6, CMac - 111, Abdullah - 16, Cook - 79, Hunt - 225, West - 48

WR - Parker - 100, Garcon - 43, Ginn - 88, Anderson - 110, Hogan - 194, Wright - 72, Agholor - 44, Goodwin - 48

TE - Graham - 63, Henry - 24, Ertz - 153

K - Prater - 41, Walsh - 100, Zuerlein - 108

Def - Eagles - 34, Rams - 21, Bucs - 36

I really need Crowell, Abdullah, Agholor, Goodwin, and Henry to show up big.

Does anyone know how to get access to the data in the contest entry form (all contest players and their costs)?

I'm wanted to do some modelling work but cant figure out how to access this data at either footballguys or calcomatic (don't think I can).

If anyone kept the data can they push it to a file host and link for me?

Aaaaaaannndddd, I'm out. Easily my worst week of the season. Sitting 245th right now. As I explained to my wife Thursday evening as we settled in to watch Kamara shred Atlanta, you can't win it in week 14, but you can be eliminated in week 14. And boy was I ever. 

I'm right there with you.

238th, 136.75 + Cooks, Hogan and Parker - 6.4, 10.7

Bad week to not have a TE, Z leg to have a lesser game, and my QBs aren't good (Stafford/Mariota). No surprise really but unless Cooks and Hogan explode I'm done. Cooks is owned by 20 so he could be key, Parker on 100, Hogan apparently is owned by 253 teams (edit, only 193, that was weird) :oldunsure: Brady is only on 15 teams.

I have Parker and Hogan too. Kamara's injury coupled with Washington not scoring enough to make Rivers throw in the second half were devastating. Kamara looked poised for a monster and the Rivers/Allen stack coulda gone for 75 if Washington could have scored. The Titan ####show hurt me too.

Only have to make up over 100 points. Giddyup. 

Nice to make it to the finals, but getting trounced.

Will be interesting to follow the two other teams. Congrats gianmarco on advancing

@BassNBrew  I'm one of the guys who got knocked out.  Just found out about it this morning when I checked to see how week 14 went.  Hadn't looked since last Tuesday when I saw that I barely made the cut.  I'm pretty unhappy about it.  The way I see it, the contest rules say that stat changes are based on what the league reports, and the NFL didn't change anything.  In fact, the NFL.com fantasy game (and Yahoo too, for what it's worth) called it a fumble recovery for the defense, and didn't make any stat corrections.  So the default scoring should have been unchanged, as it was the last time this happened, and the conversation should be whether @gianmarco should have been included in the 250 as well (which I would have been on board with).

In this case, the reason it was changed had more to do with @gianmarco doing a very good job of lobbying unopposed on the message boards.  Which sucks for me.  Either way, @Doug Drinen and @Joe Bryant have made the call and don't seem to be open to changing it, so it is what it is.

I'll be following though.  So far in week 14 I had 217 points, which would put me at 6th overall right now.  :wall:

Thanks Michael. As I said, I'm sorry the ruling didn't go your way but we made the call and have to stick to it. There sometimes has to be tough calls on the scoring and a decision has to be made. How a play is scored is one thing. But to fundamentally change the rules of the game and allow more than the set number of teams in is something we can't do. And to be sure, this had nothing to do with any lobbying. This was brought to Doug's attention, and has been the case in the past, he made a decision as commish. I'm sorry this didn't go in your favor and I understand the disappointment. But we owe it to everyone to administer the contest as fairly as possible and that's what we did here and it's closed. Thanks.

I added some columns to the Standings page at calcomatic so you can see the cumulative scores for weeks 14, 15, 16.   Use the search box to find your entry.

The My Entry page will continue to show the scores of you individual players and the slider at the top will continue to show your rank in the current week - which is meaningless at this point.  Ideally that would show the cumulative rank for all three weeks, but that won't be completed by tonight's game.

Going to be some massive scores this week with Hunt at 40 points.

pretty much everybody will score high.

Sitting at #50 right now but only because Stafford, Hunt, and Gordon played already.

It won't last, but it's fun to be #8 for the week for now. Which might put me middle of the pack for both weeks combined.

(Only team with Gurley, Gordon and Hunt)

Looks like the injury bug may cost me.

 

Currently sitting in 29th with 399.6 (and Winston -19.75, Bucs -8 and Toiloio -10.1), but with no Antonio, no Wentz, possibly no Adams, going to be tough to score high in wee 16), but here's hoping!  Being the only entry left with Adams & Brown was a nice luxury the last couple of weeks, not so much in week 15, and definitely not looking great for week 16....

In 93rd right now. Not great, but I scored over 200 for the 2nd time all year this week. Hoping to jump up a money tier or something. Good luck everyone.

#121 now :D. won't make it to the top 30 but top 150 and getting next year's subscription paid for would be nice. #10 for the week might be my highest place ever.

A reminder for the luck few who are still alive that you can see the cumulative score at: http://calcomatic.com/Standings  Just enter your entry number into the search box to find your Entry.  So for this final week, the Live Score column will show the points accumulated during week 16 and the week 14 / 15 columns will show your scores for those weeks, and the Total column will show your overall rank for weeks 14/15/16.

The "My Entry" page shows the rank relative to the current week only, which doesn't really matter at this point in the contest :D

I'd guess zero 

Yep. Looks like the top few have him. Didn't look past the first few. 

Despite a horrible week 14, I'll manage to finish in the money for the first time. Not a lot just in the top 150 (currently #76, it's really tough to imagine Ertz would move me up much or 75 other teams advancing ahead), but this was a fun ride.
