It would help immensely to know the matchups. Or the format, for that matter. Otherwise, not much reason to pick anything other than heavy chalk.
The format has not been made known? I thought it was just me not paying attention. I have no idea how this thing is going to work. It mostly just strikes me as TPTB tinkering with what needn't be tinkered with.

AFAIK, all we have is the initial description:
Teams will return to Los Angeles in January 2019 to compete against each other head-to-head. Each three-person team will designate one player to play the Jeopardy! round, one to play Double Jeopardy! and one to play Final Jeopardy! Teams will be eliminated based on point totals, with the top three teams competing for a $1 million prize in a two-day final.
How will six teams combine to play eight preliminary games before the two-day final? Will there be any eliminations after the first week, or at any point before the finals? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I mean ffs the scoring for this fantasy league nonsense is based on correct answers during the J!/DJ rounds or 10pts for FJ, but we don't even know the matchups or which players are playing which rounds!!! Plus I'm guessing they can switch roles from game-to-game; if they can't, this woud be useful to know as well.
