As expected, a low-scoring affair in Week 1. Only seven teams earned five points so this contest is as wide open as it gets. Make your Week 2 picks in the comments. New entries are encouraged. We’ll pick monthly and season winners so it’s never a bad time to join up. Again only the NFL players with the best fantasy total at quarterback, running back, wide receiver and tight end score points.
The top players this week were QB Peyton Manning, RB Arian Foster, WR Hakeem Nicks and TE Marcedes Lewis. They were each worth five points (bonus points if you picked more than one correctly). Every other player in the NFL was worth 0 points.
Not surprisingly, nobody picked Nicks or Lewis. However, congratulations to Ike’s 69ers, who bravely started Arian Foster this week and reaped the 5-point reward. Six other teams selected Peyton Manning. Let’s check out the results:

I have a feeling bonus points, especially multiple bonuses are going to be hard to come by. This should be a wide open race right down to the final week.
Weekly points breakdown reminder:
- Get one pick at QB, RB, WR or TE correct = 5 points
- Get two picks in the same week correct = 15 points (two correct choices +5 bonus points)
- Get three picks in the same week correct = 25 points (three correct choices +10 bonus points)
- Get all four picks correct = 35 points (four correct choices +15 bonus points)
