Which is correct for BGO game lineup deadline?
1. The start of the player's real-life game
2. The start of the first game on the designated day of the week

I found the scoring info for the league but not the lineup deadline.

Thanks!
The player locks in their spot when their game starts. So for this Thursday, if you have any Bears or Packers in your lineup, they will lock in that spot when that game starts. However, all other players can be moved around until their game starts Sunday or Monday.

I emailed this to everyone in the league, but wanted to post here as well.

With the season starting on Thursday night, I have a few housekeeping items for everyone.

Please make sure to set your lineup every week. We want each week to be a battle for all, so please make sure you keep up with who is on bye and who is injured and not playing and set your lineup accordingly. I understand there are last minute changes in status and we can't always make the change, but please do the best you can so we can keep the league competitive.

On that note, please remember to play the whole season. We had one person give up last year and it made the league less fun. So even if you are out of it, please set your lineup and do what you can to play spoiler. And if you do play spoiler, please come in this thread and let everyone know!

Lastly, have fun! This is the most important thing.

Time to see if the Patriots can turn another disgruntled Raiders receiver into gold. If so...my team just got an obscene boost.

It was a pretty lopsided week 1 in both leagues. For the first week, if you had the players, you won and won big. League one saw a fairly competitive match between @China and @btfoom. Plus one really competitive contest that game down to the very last plays by Drew Brees to allow @ZeroAnd16 edge out @Boone. Just about everything else was a blowout. Congrats to everyone who won this week. Our high scorers this week were @Neophyte in League 1 and @Elephant in League 2. Below are the results for week 1.

With 1:15 left to play, I had the lead.

Story of my fantasy football life :(

My Apologies NEO... for some reason I thought you had Dak Prescot too on top of Amari Cooper and jokingly tweeted something to effect "So Called #Redskins Fan" :nonchalance: ... I've deleted it after realizing my error.

I have to say... playing FFB makes the non-Redskins games a lot more interesting and lost a close one to you.

I took a risk drafting 3 top RBs (Mcaffery, Mixon, and Kerryon) before looking at WRs and I'm getting killed as a result as 2 of the 3 haven't done squat.

Week 2 in league 1 saw @China dominate not only his opponent, but the entire league. He put up an impressive 160.86 points. Through 2 weeks, @China, @Neophyte, and @ZeroAnd16 remain undefeated.

League 2 saw a lot of high scores, but Ax was the highest scorer. @Elephant and @Canadian Hog remain undefeated in league 2. Below are the scores from week 2 along with the standings thus far.

No worries. :)

I'm used to a bit of flack over starting Cowboys on my team, however, I drop allegiances for Fantasy. Whoever will help my team win is fair game. Understand, I never cheer for anyone to do well against the Skins but I don't shy away from starting them either.

Having said that, my team was largely selected by Auto-draft so I got a couple of Cowboys due to Skins fans bypassing them. I might have chosen other players had I been available to join the draft live.

Damn, the Giants/Buccaneers game is hooking me up with all the points. About time my team lived up to its potential.

On a related note...sorry Knight. :)

Ugh. I got destroyed this week. And Saquon Barkley gets injured to boot.

I was in pretty good shape until 2 minutes or so left in the 1 p.m. games, during which Dug's House of Payne unleashed hell on me with 2 or 3 late scores. But hey - all I need is for Dustin Hopkins to kick 7 or 8 FGs and I'm right back in this thing :)

I dunno Win, it's close and Montgomery hasn't done squat the first two weeks of the season, you might squeak this one out

Honestly, I'd love for your rb to catch 1 maybe 2 good passes and the skank ho`s win while our skins ball the **** out and slaughter the bears tonight.

I got very lucky with Russel Wilson going crazy for 51.34 fantasy pts accounting for 42% of my total points.

If Hop kicks 8 he ties the record: "Tennessee Titans kicker Rob Bironas made history when he successfully converted eight field goal attempts during a 38-36 win over the Houston Texans on Oct. 21, 2007."
