Pickems is a style of Fantasy Football that requires owners to pick which NFL Team they think will win that week. It starts during the regular season and continues throughout the playoffs.

History

KSL Pickems was formed in 2005 with the introduction of the 2005 season. The Pickems league has more than just the owners in KSL since anyone could join. Pickems tends to see people drop off part way through the season since many people forget to make picks. About half way through the year many owners stop making picks but the top owners tend to keep making picks in hopes of becoming champion. Yahoo doesn't keep data on how many correct picks you make so some of the years do not have the data available.

For 2015 we tried our hand at doing Pickems but with using Spread Points. This led to a lower amount overall but it was an intriguing way of playing. KSL moved back to normal Pickems for 2016.

The total number of pickems one could get correct is 256 for the Regular Season and 11 for the playoffs to total 267.
