Receiver: Torrey Smith (BAL)

Punter: Morstead (NO)

cixelsyd, for the receiver bonus, if say, two players have 10 catches, the one with the highest receiving yards will get the bonus point, you don't need to pick a different receiver as a tie breaker.

Just for clarification, by receiver, I mean "player catching the ball", what position they're officially listed as is irrelevant.

New Orleans by 7 over San Francisco

New England by 21 over Denver

Baltimore by 6 over Houston

New York by 2 over Green Bay

For the receiver bonus point, please only pick ONE receiver. If two or more players are tied for having the most receptions, the bonus point will only be awarded to those of you who selected the player with the most receptions for the most receiving yards.

posted by apoch at 11:56 AM on January 12

So if you picked two, I'm going to assume you want to use the player you picked for catches unless you specify otherwise.

I'm going to need Tim Tebow to lead me to a comeback here. Or should I already have an advantage since I had a wild card bye?

You're just trolling Apoch now, right?

I was confused by the question. If the pick is just one guy, I will pick Graham.

Hey -- on the scoresheet you have folkways bolded for four points but credited with three.

posted by rumple at 10:55 PM on January 13

rcade, I used the contact form to request a correction to that part of the post, in order to avoid confusion regarding the tiebreaker. I'll make sure to make it more clear next week.

Thanks to everyone who caught errors in the scoring. I'm going to blame it on my monitor dying.

If you're curious about scores (or just willing to double check my numbers) the scores for this week are here. Will be posting the thread for the next round tomorrow.

What? No one picked Brady for long punting average? Never have I been so disappointed in the collective wisdom of Spofi.

posted by rumple at 10:28 PM on January 15

I wasn't going to give it to Brady, since the question asks for punter, but nobody picked the second place guy either, so why not?

posted by apoch at 06:54 AM on January 16

Where did the punting stats come from? According to Yahoo!, Lee's (SF) average was 49.5, and Koch's (Baltimore) average was 49.3, both higher than Brady's 48.0.

posted by bender at 09:17 AM on January 16

Per the boxscore on NFL .com,

Brady 48.0
Koch 44.4
Lee 43.4
Turk 40.0
Weatherford 40.0
Morestead 39.6
Mesko 39.0
Colquitt 34.9
Masthay 29.5

posted by apoch at 09:41 AM on January 16

Fair enough. I wonder why they're different.

posted by bender at 10:37 AM on January 16

The NFL might be taking off yardage on the returns. I don't know that for a fact, but that's my guess.
