As we enter Week 6, things are finally starting to get easier to figure out at the top. With all the correspondents voting, here are the poll standings as of today:
Remember, the Confidential’s Fantasy Football game is structured to allow late entries. THERE IS STILL TIME TO ENTER AND WIN THE OVERALL CONTEST! But we are also running a separate free contest for October alone. See below.
The entrant with the highest score during one of the four October weekends will receive $25.00 via PayPal. We have seen some 150 point weeks already, so it may take that much to win the prize. But remember to enter each week to increase your chances.
We don’t go by total points for the whole season; rather, we just allow teams to win the week or not. Whoever wins the most weeks, wins the overall prize. Right now, Lenville has 2 wins, while Brian, ACaffrey and MCaffrey have 1 win. Plenty of time for someone else to enter and win the $75.00 prize. For Week 5 results, see here.
For rules, see here. As a reminder, to enter, simply comment below with an ACC QB, RB, WR, Flex, Defense, and Coach. We’ll do the rest.
Get the entries in for this week by 7:00 pm EST Friday, October 3, 2014. GO ACC!
Week 6 Schedule of Games:
The Confidential was tweeting aplenty during the Syracuse-Notre Dame game. Indeed, the Confidential got into a twitter-battle (which always makes me think of Dr. Seuss’s “Muddle Puddle Tweetle Poodle Beetle Noodle Bottle Paddle Battle”) over the Syracuse defensive performance. The upshot is that the Confidential has some legitimate concerns that this Syracuse coaching staff will be seeing Fool’s Gold with the 5 turnovers, just like there was Fool’s Gold with the nearly 1,000 yards of offense the past two weeks.
After four weeks, only 24 entrants remain in the running for the prize. Boston College and Pitt losing to non Power Five programs last week eliminated three entrants. Here are the folks still in the running, as well as the picks that they have used to date:
|1||4 TIME CHAMPS-FINGERS CROSSED||GT||MIA||PITT||NCST||VTC|
|2||ACAFFREY (COMMANDER CAFFREY)||GT||VIRG||MIA||NCST||VTC|
|16||MR. TAR HEEL||NCST||WF||GT||BC||VIRG|
The Confidential is running a fantasy football contest each week and during the regular season. Here are the rules. Remember, you can enter in Week 6 and still be eligible for the overall prize–which is given to the entrant who wins the most weeks. But, for now, let’s recap the Week 5 results:
The big game of the day is Syracuse vs. Notre Dame tonight, but Florida State traveling to NC State has huge implications. And Duke-Miami will go a long way to determine the Coastal picture, as Miami could be in big trouble with a loss at home. Long story short, a lot going on.
Share your thoughts as the day proceeds…
Believe it or not, the game between the Wolfpack and the Seminoles on Saturday afternoon is the second ACC showdown game of this season. The first was FSU/Clemson, but to hear most folks talk, this week’s game will be an FSU romp.
Looking for some Wolfpack love, I went to Backing The Pack over at SB Nation. And there I found this from Akula Wolf.
Like most, the esteemed Mr. Wolf feels that the Pack has played no one (sound familiar?) and will be utterly destroyed on Saturday. I beg to differ.
