Confidential Survivor Pool Update: Week 3

Unfortunately, two games into the double-elimination season, a few entrants have been eliminated.  This week’s carnage was caused by a single game–the Duke loss to Wake Forest.  That caused six entrants to receive strikes, two of whom suffered strikes in Week 1.  That means 34 entrants remain.

As we move on to Week 3, here is an interesting chart as to which teams have been used or not used:

Team Survivors Who Haven’t Picked This Team
1. Georgia Tech (2-0) 15
2. Syracuse (1-1) 20
3. Duke (1-1) 25
4. Wake Forest (2-0) 27
5. Boston College (1-1) 27
6. Louisville (2-0) 32
7. No Carolina St. (1-1) 32
8. Virginia (0-2) 32
9. Miami Fla (2-0) 32
10. North Carolina (1-1) 33
11. Virginia Tech (1-1) 33
12. Clemson (2-0) 33
13. Notre Dame (1-1) 33
14. Pittsburgh (2-0) 34
15. Florida St. (2-0) 34

Nobody has used Pitt or Florida State, while only one entrant over two weeks has used UNC, Va Tech, Clemson, and Notre Dame.  Louisville and Miami have only been used by two entrants.

As we move to Week 3, the strategy will become more apparent.  9 ACC teams face a P5 opponent, while Syracuse plays South Florida and Miami travels to App State.  If this was Week 6, you might be forced to pick a team playing a P5 opponent.  On the other hand, saving Florida State for Week 10 is great, but being eliminated in Week 4 is not going to help that cause.

In any event, good luck to everyone in Week 3!

(Still Time to Join!) Confidential Fantasy Football Game: Week 3 Entry Page

Even if you missed out on Weeks 1 and 2, the Confidential’s Fantasy Football Game is still joinable in Week 3.  Probably not a good idea to wait too much longer.  As those who entered know, the game is free and simple… just pick your team.  See rules.  Here is the recap of Week 2 and the standings.

To enter, just comment with your entry for Week 3.

You are allowed one free roster change each week.  For each other change, there is a loss of one point in this week’s scoring…. a maximum of 5 point deduction.  At the same time, there is a potential 5 point bonus for having roster diversity.  If you want the same roster as last week, just do nothing.  If you want to change your roster or join anew, just comment below.



Good luck to all!

Ranking the Conferences: Week 3

With the football playoff looming, it is tempting to analyze which four teams belong in it.  But it is simply too early to begin prognosticating.  Most teams have not even played a conference game yet.  But we are starting to see about conference strength.  Let’s rank the conferences after three weeks.

Read more…


The Confidential’s Fantasy Football game is structured to allow late entries.  THERE IS STILL TIME TO ENTER AND WIN!  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.   Also, for points-centric folks, we are running a contest for most points from Week 1 to Week 4 (and will probably run similar contests throughout the season).  For Week 2 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 by 12:00 pm EST Saturday, September 13, 2014.  GO ACC!
