Last season, Pat and I did a trial version of Fantasy Snowfall, and overall it was a great success. We’ve brought it back this year, though with some changes. First off, we have 2 more people participating: Brent and Mike. With 2 more people, we’ve reduced the number of full cities to 6 per person. Also, everyone has Syracuse, NY, but can only use it as a starter once. All other times, Syracuse counts as 0 inches.
With there being 6 cities, 4 will be starters and 2 will be bench. Starters will have full credit while the bench is worth half. All cities must start at least once, and be on the bench at least once. Roster updates occur at the end of each month.
This year’s contest will run from December through March. I’ll try to get full updates done every 10 days, depending on snow totals of course.
The draft took place last week and starters were submitted by November 30th. Here are the cities each participant has, with starters for December in bold:
Sioux Falls, SD
South Bend, IN
Green Bay, WI
Salt Lake City, UT
Grand Rapids, MI
A quick “Power Ranking” of these cities, based on their season average, shows that Pat has a slight advantage. Coming in second is Brent, then Mike, with Steve being last. However, the difference between first and last is about a foot, which suggests this will be a close contest.
We hope you enjoy following along this year’s contest! Who do you think will win this year’s Fantasy Snowfall contest? Let us know in the comments!
