Same deal for me. After a 3-12 first week, I actually picked this game correctly.
Ballz: So, I fucking got a BJ for $250 total, and wore a rubber. It sucked, I couldnt even feel it, so i jeckyled onto her tits. She was cute. Not even that far out of my league, it was a waste of $250

This is the second or third time Yahoo fucked up the Pick 'Em this season. We should demand our money back! lol

We experienced some technical issues with our feed delivery which caused the spreads for the three games on Thanksgiving to drop. We've been working hard over the holiday weekend to resolve the issue and make sure we can provide you with a great fantasy experience for the rest of the season. We are very sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused.

Because the spread changed and last-minute pickers made selections based on the changes, we have decided to disqualify all three games from Week 13 scoring.

If your group also uses confidence points, your confidence points will be adjusted to use the point values 1, 2 and 3 for the disqualified games. (Example: You had the three Thanksgiving games at 2, 6 and 7. They will now be ranked 1, 2 and 3. The game you originally selected with 1 point now will have 4 points assigned. The game you originally selected with 3 points will now have 5 points assigned.)

After exploring all possible options, we believe that this is the fairest solution because it is the one that is consistently applied for all players who use the spread scoring option for our Pro Football Pick'em players.

We know you've come to rely on us on all things Fantasy Sports and that is a privilege we don't take for granted. We will continue to work hard to give you the best possible experience on Yahoo Sports.

Thank you for your patience.

I have to be honest, I don't really care all that much. I'm only ahead of two people who seem to have stopped picking weeks ago. I'm entering #s-esque futility. Confidence...shattered.

i keep getting reminders to make my picks and haven't done it in 4 weeks i think. i was so far at the bottom it wouldn't have mattered anyway. i did tie for best weekly set of picks early in the season though so i'm going to hang my hat on that random chance occurrence.

Looks like they went back and added the 3 Thanksgiving games back into the mix. So I only went 2-1 in those...only 1 pt behind Darth Wampa now. \:D/

Pretty proud of my 14-2 week this week. Easily the best I've ever done in pick 'em.

Who is White Leopard? Maybe that person could fill in as the interim host while we wait for Wampa to not be dead.

I got nowhere else to put this....In a pick'em league. No spread. Trying to figure out what's a good W-L record for a straight up pick em league.

Here are the standings and records:

No. W-L-T
1  133-58-1
2  131-60-1
3  126-65-1
3  126-65-1
5  125-66-1
5  125-66-1
7  124-67-1
7  124-67-1
9  123-68-1
9  123-68-1
11  122-69-1
12  121-70-1
12  121-70-1
14  119-72-1
15  118-73-1
15  118-73-1
17  117-74-1
18  108-83-1

Spots 3-12 shift wildly from one week to the next. 2 weeks ago I was in 3rd, right now I am in 9th. We have autopicking enabled that will take all favorites, but hardly anyone ever uses it. The guy in last has made all his picks every week.

Top guy is 75 picks over .500, bottom guy is 25 over, I'm 68 over.

According to this: http://www.teamrankings.com/nfl/trend/win_trends/is_fav. Favorites have a W-L of 117-66 which is 51 over .500. That's 182 games.

Our pool has picked 192 games which means there were 10 games with an even spread in our pool. Also means we've picked 5.2% more games than simply picking favorites.

Multiply my 68 games over by 94.8% and it comes to 64 over. Top dude in my pick em would be 71 games over .500 if the even spreads were tossed out. Simply picking favorites would get you 51 over .500.

Long story short, I have no idea what a good win % in a straight pick'em league is, but its a lot better than simply taking the favorite every week.
