Fantasy Football - new league

Post by JMP on Fri Aug 28, 2015 5:40 pm

A new fantasy league has been set up: it's called Getting Defensive (DolfanCave).  Here's a link to join:

https://yho.com/nfl?l=992541&k=f8c3b1a4e67e18cf&ikey=03031665b1a55c92

This league includes 6 defensive players on the roster.  I also increased the number of bench players, and added some funky scoring opportunities.  Take a look and join!

Draft is Friday September 4 at 9:00pm Eastern.

Any questions, just let me know.

NOTE 1: This is a separate league from the one rightchea started.

NOTE 2: I'm hoping Birdmond will join, assuming he's back in the U.S. with access to electricity, running water and other mod cons.   geek

NOTE 3: I'm calling out DolFan 316 right here and now: JOIN THIS LEAGUE and show us all that you run a competitive fantasy football league without actually watching football!   king

I can only do a live draft on Sunday's. It's my busy season right now. Working 6 days a week.

Okay, after a really odd-looking auto draft, with a stellar score of D (I didn't rank any players as I thought I was going to be able to be there), I've "fixed" my team. I think it may be a long year, but we'll see.

My MISFITS III team was autodraft...and it sucked. I don't think Yahoo ranked their defensive players properly, so I ended up with pretty much all backups, most players I've never even heard of! But I made tons of changes and I'm pretty happy with that team at the moment.

I really like my "main" team, MISFITS II.

The defensive players really present a challenge, especially when bye weeks start to come into play. Should be fun!

I really screwed up not getting a team in the other league. I did not enjoy adding D players so I'm sitting this one out.

YO - Turnover Return Yards are scoring at a POINT A YARD?

Your bro got 42 points for a return by Clay Matthews.

Looks like the scoring is poorly optimized.

I wanted a high-scoring league, and I also wanted to give the defensive players some way of getting big-point weeks like offensive players. I think all 6 teams each had at least one defensive player with double-digit points this week. A point per return yard is certainly high, but it's something that benefits every team. In retrospect, I probably should've done just half a point or even a quarter of a point, but I think it adds another dimension.

My son doesn't know all the players, but Watt is his favorite NFL player. I told him before the draft that he should target Watt in the 3rd round...and that if he didn't, I would! He beat me to it... LOL

But, yeah - the points for return yards really make you put thought into who to start, especially at DB. Normally in defensive leagues you might want to target safeties because they generally get more tackles than corners, but with this scoring system you might want to prioritize CBs - who generally get more INTs. Right now I like it...we'll see how it goes.

Dunno why I said Watt in the last post, it was Matthews as I said earlier.  Watt is a great player for your kid to love though, great guy, great ethic, great player.

It's your league.  I just feel like putting such emphasis on return yards minimizes the rest of the players.  Is it a more impactful play to return a fumble 20 yards and pick up 22 points, or have a QB throw three tds, which is 18, plus yardage?

Eh, it's just a fantasy league.  No money, no worries.  I won't bother paying attention to it.

We'll see how it goes this season. This is the first time I'm doing this, so we can see what works and what doesn't and then make adjustments next time.

UPDATE:

I had two teams in the league, and both made it to the Championship.  Needless to say, I won!    afro 

I really enjoyed having defensive players on the roster...very challenging, with a lot of difficult decisions to make during player bye weeks. 

Anyway, I know Degarmo hated the defensive scoring points I set up, but it was a lot of fun and I will do this league again next season.  I'll tweak some of the scoring, but overall I thought it worked well.  Hopefully some of you guys will join next time!

The only change I'd make is to the scoring. Other than that I've always loved defense in my fantasy football.

R O F L - JMP, you will have the destruction of the week award.  220 points for 55 return yards . . . you have got to be fucking kidding me Very Happy.  4 points per return yard, 55 yards returned.  Dude . . . next year, revise these rules.  I mean, one point per return yard would have been an extra 55 points, far eclipsing any skill player.  Having the rosters the way you have is a significant defensive thought process, but this kind of thing essentially just makes it entirely luck.  

I am so not angry, I'm actually laughing, but I'm just sayin', maybe next season balance it out Wink

Oh, and congrats on the win, my brother bounce .

EDIT: Dear lord, I was wrong. Looks like you'll be third in the beat-the-ever-living-shit-out-of-your-opponent-because-of-defensive-return-yards sweepstakes. The scores this week - hoofta!

Very sorry about this, but Yahoo screwed me - I set it at .25 points per return yard, but for some reason it is recording as 4 points per return yard!  I actually contacted Yahoo, but apparently you can't change the scoring rules once the season has begun.

I wanted a high-scoring league, but this is ridiculous!  Not at all what I was going for!   Embarassed

I agree although I got lucky when Peters picked 2 and had like 47 Ret yards. I scored like 199.00
