Eliminator Challenge: Survive and Advance
By Joe Kaiser
Everyone plays fantasy football and many others play pick 'em, but if you're out for sheer drama and excitement then the Eliminator Challenge is where it's at.

Andrew Luck and the Colts will be frequently favored this season.
The game is simple enough on the surface -- pick the winner of one NFL game each week straight up. No point spread to worry about. Just pick a winner, and advance to the next week.
But there's a catch: You can only pick each team one time, which means there's an added element of strategy to take into account every week. Do you play a heavily favored Super Bowl-caliber team early in the season to give yourself a good shot at advancing? Or do you hold off and chance it with a middle-of-the pack team in order to keep a top-tier team for later in the season?
This is the important question that plays out every week, and your decision can make or break your season. Remember, it's win-or-go-home - one loss ends your season and any chance you have at the Grand Prize, so choose carefully.
Think you have what it takes? Then sign up for the Eliminator Challenge and get started today.
