Top 10 Weekly scores (* indicates weekly contest winner):
1. Grand Champ (week 6*) - 199.48
2. Wall Street Warriors (week 6) - 189.51
3. NowPower (week 6) - 187.90
4. Terror (week 2*) - 185.12

9. Woodabakers (week 6) - 175.55
10. WD Forte (week 6) - 175.46

Results for Team Terror:

The leader of our overall standings, "Terror" owned by "ithrowds" has been unbelievably successful up to this point. Just look at his week-by-week results:

Week 1 - #42 - 137.48 points
Week 2 - #1 - 185.12 points
Week 3 - #1 - 167.77 points
Week 4 - #2 - 168.62 points
Week 5 - #17 - 143.64 points
Week 6 - #45 - 147.14 points

So, that's 6 weeks with no fewer than 137 points, a worst week at #45, two weekly contest wins and a second place. No wonder he leads the overall standings by 146 points.

Highest total point scorers by position:
QB - T. Brady - 121.82
RB - A. Peterson - 108.90
WR - A. Johnson - 81.20
TE - O. Daniels - 61.40
K - L. Tynes - 66.40
Def - Denver - 87.00

Other Notes -
- the Week 5 Winning score of 167.83 by "Hass2Housh" was the lowest of any weekly winner. The same score in week 6 only nets him 12th place
- As you can see above, 7 of the top 10 weekly scores came in week 6
- My team "Upstate Rednecks" is currently ranked 69th overall, after a sad 382nd place this week. Week by week I've ranked 134, 60, 197, 198, 230, and 282. Things seem to be getting worse...

Having a lot of fun with the league. Great idea to integrate this at OS.

So true, unfortunately Im PST so thats 6:30 so I end up missing out on some players as well as losing some major money.

The 4 dollar tax at over $300 value is tough to swallow though

ithrowds, grats bro, your unstoppable.

9:30 AM EST on Tuesday is only key if you want to maximize your budget. Once you get up to $250 though it isnt much of a concern, you can get most players onto your roster as long as you dont go max price at each position. And as noted, once you get to $300 its pointless to 'play the market' as transaction fees destroy you.

Yeah, I'm on EST and go to work well before 9:30AM, so I don't get to do any transactions until the early evening. I've mostly stopped buying guys all together if they have a bye week following the current week's game. They just end up losing me too much money regardless of how they perform that week. At this point in the season I'm really putting a premium on guys with teams that have already had a bye week. For example, I was so tempted to take Brady this week but his value is going to plummet after Sunday's game. I did take Moss though. I can't completely avoid these guys if I think they could have a big game. I just won't put more than one on my team each week. Such is life for those of us toiling with sub-200 budgets.

I disagree, Im sitting with a value of 248.18 and still couldnt get all the players I wanted and I wasnt trying to go max price at all positions either. I do have Brees and Rodgers but I got Rodgers for 25.02 when he was on a bye. Ive got Reggie Wayne but got him for 18.65 when he was on a bye week as well, throw in Ronnie Brown at 15.41 and Miles Austin at 6.29 and you can see I love to grab guys at their lowest value and stash them for when they come off their bye week.

To the other poster, I too was tempted to take Brady over Brees but the fact that Brady is on a bye next week and I would take a big loss on him made the decision easier. I do have Wes Welker as I couldnt avoid it completely but like you, I too tend to avoid anyone who has a bye week the following week.

I know we've had a team hit $300 before, but $312 might be a new high. I'll see if I can find out...

Out of curiousity, how many active players do we still have playing in the OS league?

Im still active and currently sitting in 3rd place. I really like my team now, Ive gone cheap on defense but hopefully it allows me to make up some ground.
