    I bought it for the first time this year, too. I love it. It almost makes FFB more fun- if that's possible.

    What it is is a 5 point bonus for going over 100, 5 point bonus for going over 100, 5 more for topping 150, and then an additional 10 for going over 200. It's a very high scoring league, and really, 200 yards receiving should be rewarded handsomely. It's not incredibly common.

    Well, I didn't think Gostkowski would be hurting me like he is, but in one of my leagues he has given my opponent the lead, and all I've got after this is Cooley. The ugly part of it is is that the team I'm facing did not show up on draft day and so 9 teams got to pick before this team got any. The wife of one of the guys in our league took the team over, and I would very much like not to lose to this team......

    Who would've thought that Lamont Jordan would be doing this well?

    I've been in probably over 100 leagues, I've never seen a "bonus". I don't think I would stay in one that had one either.

    Wow, I just logged on to check my score out. I have gained 31 points with Moss and Brady already and am now only 9 points behind my opponent. He still gets Westbrook tomorrow night, but another half like that and I'll take my chances.

    I kinda like it. To each his own I guess.

    64 Points.

    I should probably have mentioned the bonuses I noted before are for RBs and WRs. QB scoring is that the first 100 yards count for nothing, then 1 point per 10 after that. 375 yards is a 5 point bonus, 450 another bonus. His 401 yards ultimately counted for 35 points, his two INTs cost him 10 total (5 each), 1 point for his 10 rushing yards, and then the TDs. Distance matters in TD scoring, so his TDs counted for 5, 5, 6, 6, 8, and 8 (0-10 = 5, 11-20 = 6, 21-30 = 8, 31-40 = 10, 41-50 = 12, 50+ = 15).

    Like I said, it's a VERY high scoring league. Which is why it was a bad sign the first week when I had 67 points total across 8 players (my opponent had Romo, who scored 71 by himself).

    Whether you think you can or you can't, either way you are probably right.

    Where should I start?

    I did a draft, the guy took Carson, and I had the next pick, I was going to take him, didn't work out for me.
    I am TRYING to cut ties with Jones-Drew, I put him in a trade offer that included him, Vernon Davis, and LT's back-up Turner, for Chad Johnson and Mike Bell. He had LT, so I figured he needed his back up. My WRs would then be TO, Chad, and TJ, then RB would be Julius Jones and Shaun Alexander. QB of Tom Brady, TE of Vernon Davis. DEF/ST of the Bears.
    I started Dallas Clark over Vernon Davis this week and I am VERY happy with the results.

    In another league, I started Favre over Rivers, happy there also.
