Moneyball – Week 1 Review

We’ve got a new system of reviewing games that we’re going to call Moneyball. This space isn’t quite big enough to explain the scoring system, so we’ve posted it fully on the forums, which you can see by clicking here.

Basically we’ll review games and based off our scoring system, the guys that are contributing the most will earn the most money.  The scoring system isn’t perfect, as QBs, RBs, WRs, and D-linemen will usually score higher than the O-linemen, LBs, DBs, and specialists, but it’s the best we can do without melting our brains.

Each week, we’ll try to get the game reviewed and the “earnings” posted. And we’ll probably actually post the actual stats accumulated at each quarterly point in the season.
