    NFL Group got bored with Fantasy.

    Want to create a weekly point system to play only on Top 5 pick’em. Top pick earns 5 points, next earns 4, then 3, then two, and the low pick earns 1 pt. At the end of the week all points are tallied and only one winner declared. Tiebreakers are overall point difference and time stamp of selections.

    I’ve found templates/hosts for pick’em but using all weekly games…I want to narrow this down to only 5 … sort of an executive version.

    Any suggestions? Is there anything similar out there already?

    • Rogelio Garza Jr says:

      Executive Pick’em – I like the sound of that!

    • Love the idea! We haven’t seen that limited setup online anywhere nor do we have the tools available to run online. If you find something let us know … will add it to the list for future consideration. -Sean

        I’m not a programmer, so an app is out of the question, but I can design a spreadsheet that will compare the players list to the winning list for the week, calculate results and declare a winner. I will have to do tiebreakers manually. I’ll let you know what hurtles I encounter along the way.

    I want to start a “predict the scores” NFL game. I cant find any templates anywhere on line of someone doing this.

    Can you help?

    • Possibly — can you explain how the predict the scores game will work? Do you have to predict the exact score of every game?

      Haven’t heard of anything like this but can keep our eyes peeled if there is interest.
