NFL Playoffs Challenge Wild-Card Weekend Results

S h a r e :

We kicked off a new format special event for the NFL Playoffs, and everyone who took the plunge and signed up appears to be very into it given the quick pace at which we got 44 challenges drafted last week. It is called the NFL Playoffs Challenge, and is played from Wild-Card Weekend through the Super Bowl, with each participant playing two games of Fantasy Throwdown per week against a representative from FT (most likely, me).

The more you win, and win big, the more points you score in the standings to rise up the ranks of the competition. We are excited to offer this event, because it is one method by which we can scale Fantasy Throwdown to allow more people to play in a combined competition than the leagues or tournaments we’ve run throughout the year.

Check the rules for details about the competition, but the basics are we had 22 entrants, they earn 2 points per win plus an extra half point if they win by 21 or more points. The first tie-breaker is points differential. The overall winner after the Super Bowl wins $300, and the Top 5 earn a prize. Plus there is a weekly $50 prize.

From what I would consider a somewhat bad drafting week – I drafted Jamaal Charles at every opportunity, then Jimmy Graham, plus I was high on Marques Colston, and had very few drafts with Alex Smith, Andrew Luck or T.Y. Hilton – the Throwdown1 account went 8-14. No surprise there. However the Throwdown2 account somehow produced a record of 15-7 for a combined record of just over .500.

As for our competitors, only four players went 2-0 for Wild-Card Weekend. Two of those four earned both blowout bonuses for winning by 21 plus fantasy points, so the weekly prize of $50 came down to the tie-breaker and was awarded to raptors, just edging out mr_punisher.

I have to give special recognition to member Haysie. Not only because it was his first ever game of Fantasy Throwdown, but because he recorded the biggest lopsided victory of the week. He won vs. Throwdown1 by 104.4! Damn! Luck to Hilton! Where was that Chiefs defense? The closest game of the week, Throwdown1 wins by 0.8 points over Wilforkisland.

Below are the weekly and overall standings after one week.

21. Doclate 0 2 0 0.0 -93.7
22. robmcangus 0 2 0 0.0 -121.5

Its still early, because there are two more games to be played for each of Divisional Playoffs and Conference Championships, plus one for Super Bowl worth double points, so everyone is still in it, and don’t forget there is a weekly prize up for grabs every week.

The game results from Wild-Card Weekend are included below. The Divisional round games will go in later today so we can get rolling with those. The lineups are similar to last week with one challenge a QB Flex option, and the other a Flex RB/WR/TE.

Thanks to everyone who is playing in the NFL Playoffs Challenge, and good luck the rest of the way!

    Thanks a lot Jamaal Charles…

  2. Mike says:

    Ditto! Although tough to blame a guy due to injury. Very bad timing it happened so early. It was pretty amazing how big in-game injuries were this week. Not just fantasy perspective, but winning the game. Player bangs their head, very tough to get back in the game.
