Welcome to the Week 13 update of the Faketeams Fantasy Football Eliminator Challenge!

Week 12 saw incredible games and incredible fantasy football performances. Let’s take a look at how our entries did in Week 12:

rk1101 Eli Manning, NYG Jay Ajayi, Mia Thomas Rawls, Sea Jordan Matthews, Phi Julian Edelman, NE Jesse James, Pit New York Giants Matt Bryant, Atl Season: 823 Avg: 82.3
Week 12 Points 19 11 3 4 8 0 22 9 76

Tcepnt Eli Manning, NYG Carlos Hyde, SF Thomas Rawls, Sea Brandon Marshall, NYJ Jamison Crowder, Was Will Tye, NYG Tennessee Titans Dustin Hopkins, Was Season: 919 Avg: 83.55
Week 12 Points 19 15 3 12 8 1 1 6 65

Punk is Dead Russell Wilson, Sea Lamar Miller, Hou Todd Gurley, LA Brandin Cooks, NO Jamison Crowder, Was Eric Ebron, Det Miami Dolphins Josh Lambo, SD Season: 938 Avg: 85.27
Week 12 Points 10 4 8 0 8 0 1 2 33

rk1101 takes home the top prize in Week 12 beating out the next closest entry by 11 points. New York Giants(22), Eli Manning(19), and Jay Ajayi(11) led the way for the winning team this week. All 3 entries had low scoring totals this week. Punk is Dead had a remarkably low total of only 33 points! Russell Wilson's poor performance and Brandin Cooks 0 targets helped bring down our season leader in points. Tcepnt was the only owner that did not roster a 0 point player. Punk is Dead remains the leader in total points and weekly average but his lead has been cut to only 19 points.

Under the rules of this contest, myself and Tcepnt are picking Week 13 without 96 possible options each. rk1101, who missed Week 8, will be without 88 options in Week 13. The choices have gotten more challenging. Ray Guilfoyle, who joined us for Week 2, and justin.j.gallant, who joined us for Week 6, will have the 8 players they chose removed from the available player pool should they rejoin us this week. A reminder of players that are ineligible to select for Week 13 are:

For those new to the challenge, here are a few ground rules. The format is basic enough; construct a lineup using the following roster setup: 1QB, 2RB, 2WR, 1TE, 1DST, & 1K. We will use standard ESPN scoring which is can be found here. There isn’t even a salary cap when setting the lineup!

What makes this challenge… challenging is that you can only select each player ONCE per season! That means if you pick Aaron Rodgers in Week 1, you CANNOT choose him again Weeks 2-17. Matchups play a HUGE part in this game, but so do injuries. Wait too long on using Le’Veon Bell and he could suffer an injury that leaves him unusable in your available player pool the rest of the season. We are using 2RBs and 2WRs per week to make it even more difficult.

For those joining us in Week 13, you have the entire pool of players at your disposal! We will have new winners each week! In addition to that, we will also have a season long total and a weekly average leaderboard.

Can you pick the best lineups all season long? Join the fun in the comments below and may the best faketeamer win!

Please post your lineups in the comments below. I will update this weekly with the leaderboard and you will put next week’s lineup in that post! Feel free to ask any questions in the comments below as well. Thanks for the read and please share this post to grow this challenge and the faketeams community!

*Ty Montgomery will remain a WR only option should any entries choose him going forward*
