    I was worried on az due to them barely beating the packers. I'm guessing Palmer with his age was getting tired in the arm late in the season. I don't think they were a fraud but cold weather doesn't help them on the road

    Ok, i am doing this again for this season. Neat thing is now you can start players that are on a bye, even though no points will be scored. The following week, whoever you had on a bye, the points they scored will be doubled.

    Here is my lineup for the wildcard round:

    QB: Aaron Rodgers
    RB: Leveon Bell
    RB: Ezekiel Elliott - BYE - 0 points
    WR: Jordy Nelson
    WR: Antonio Brown
    TE: Martellius Bennett - BYE - 0 points
    K: Sebastain Janikowski
    D/ST: Seattle

    The trick to winning is you need to pick who you think is going to be in the Super Bowl that way you get 4x the points. Also last year you could pick guys that had first week byes.
