Does anyone else wonder how the NFL has only 7 players on the COVID watch list right now as the virus spreads like crazy across the country?

Has it run through the teams, or have changes been made to the testing /quarantine protocols that have impacted reporting process?

Safari browser won't connect at all and Firefox is missing lots of interactive details.

The pic I tried to upload of the final standings shows me with 98% and the next 3 at 97.4%
To have a 90% pick percentage on a 256 game season you could only miss 26 games. 
We all missed over 3 times that amount.

Based on correct picks, I would consider it a 2 way tie, because the percentages make no sense.


NO WAY!!!  I'm keeping both the money and the trophy!

The way the math works is really goofy because of the removal of the "worst week", and the fact that not all weeks have the same number of games.

Every team (30 of them) plays 17 games for a total of 255 games.   On my worst week, there were 15 games.  On Jay's worst, there were 14.  That means that I had won the same number of games while having one less to possibly win (after my thrown-out week, I picked 240 games that counted...Jay got to pick 241).    I, therefore, ended with a higher winning percentage than Jay.   I won 169/240 = 70.4166% versus Jay's measly 169/241, or 70.1244%. 

The reason the loss number looks odd...is that on my tossed week I lost 10 games.  Jay lost 8.  Thus my loss total is 2 less (because we won the same number of games).

The % pick number (I think) is a system-wide reference without throwing out any games.  It's about standings, not wins/losses, and apparently is there to confuse.

Double or nothing on the playoffs?
