2013 Football Outsiders Playoff Challenge

Hey everybody! Time for the second edition of our Playoff Challenge game. Here's how it works: You need to pick a roster consisting of 2 QB, 4 RB, 4 WR, and 2 TE. You must pick one player from each of the 12 playoff teams, no duplicates. Whoever has the highest fantasy score during the playoffs wins a copy of Football Outsiders Almanac 2013 and the 2013 KUBIAK fantasy football projections. Standard fantasy scoring, no PPR. Thanks again to former Scramble writer Ian Dembsky for the idea for this game. We'll close entries on Saturday morning.

NOTE: I apologize if the original post was not clear; you need to click the link above and submit your team with a form similar to what we use for the Loser League.

FYI everyone - if you click on the title, it will take you to the submission form. I don't believe posting your teams in the comments will enter you into the contest.

It's actually probably a little silly, considering you're tipping your hand to other people.

Sorry, I guess I didn't make it clear above. You have to click on the link to submit a team. I'm going to close off comments; if you left a team in the comments above, make sure to also submit it using the proper form.
