Things to know:
You can not select any of the three players you selected for the Wild Card round.
My goal is to eliminate half the field this week. So tiebreakers will come into play.
I will not be as quick with the updated standings as I was last week since I'll be nowhere near a computer for most of the day Sunday. (Hopefully I'll start drinking heavily at 4:15 PM EST in a celebratory mode.)
Starting next week, the picks will be submitted to me via e-mail, as the strategy becomes interesting. I'll explain this more as we celebrate the Seahawks win (knock on everything) and prepare for the NFC Championship Game.
Submit your picks below. You have until 4:00 PM EST (3:00 PM CST) Saturday to get your names in.
