Let us know if you think you've spotted an error in the scoring data. This is our first year -- our first week -- of crunching the data ourselves. Our programmers have written code to parse the data sent out by the NFL, but we know there may be glitches. We ran into particular trouble this week with kicking data, and eventually we gave up and hand-keyed those scores. We hope to iron out the kicker glitch over the next couple of days so we can post Week 2 scores immediately after the Monday night game.
With that caveat in mind, congratulations to Jennifer Pelton of Akron, Ohio! Jennifer's entry "Jpthatsme" led all entries with 195.6 points. Jennifer hit home runs with Kareem Hunt, Mike Gillislee, and the two highest-scoring defenses. Her winning lineup was:
|Week 1 high score: Jpthatsme|
|Jennifer Pelton - Akron, Ohio|
We'll wait until Friday to see if there are any scoring discrepancies. If everything holds up, then we will send Jennifer a $25 Fantasy Index gift certificate.
