My team eats the dick. I had the last pick

Got bumped off a few times and ended up with guys I wouldn't have drafted. Also I should have actually done some draft prep.

Thus the value of QBs in this league.

It's more interesting of a league than you think. It's a good test and a lot luck.

At first I thought it was a good idea but not if there are no qbs remaining. Maybe it would have been ok in a 10 team league but theres a reason every other league only has 1 qb and defense per week and its because there is only 1qb that plays most of the season for most teams. 2x14=28 which pretty much takes all of the "decision making" out of the equation when it comes to qb. Everyone will just play the 2 qbs they have and see what happens.

and thats why I drafted 3 QBS, I thought about taking a 4th just because I wanted to make it soooo much more interesting for those that asked for this shit lineup

You could have...they are good trade bait and expensive to keep on your roster though...The benefit/challenge of the small roster.

the TEs and the defenses are possibly more important in this league that the QBs are. I had full intentions of taking Jordan Reed with my third pick after drafting Gronk 1st overall, but he got taken 2 picks earlier and I ended up with CJ Anderson instead.

At least there's no risk of a defense ending up on IR, but there are going to be weeks where there are only 24 defenses playing football total. You effectively have to use 3 bench spots for a defense, TE, and QB, since there won't be any left by week 5. Or, maybe trade your way into having your entire team on bye the same week and just take the loss.

i must say the player bonuses are pretty ridiculous and only further inflate players who had big games.

points accumulate exponentially after a certain points. score 4 tds and you get the 4tds points but guess what? heres 8 free points just because you already have a bunch of points.

the bonuses encourage starting players with high ceilings instead of low floors, and it's what makes this league great.

maybe it would be great in a different format (less teams, or 1 of each starter instead of 2) but in the current format theres just not enough players to go around. theres never going to be waivers for defenses and qbs.

most of the players who started will start for the entire season because theres just not that much flexibility or choice in who you have on your roster or who you start.

in a standard league, theres literally enough players where you could play a competitive team off of only waivers. thats what makes fantasy football great.

a league that allows you to make all decisions through the waiver wire is boring as hell, because no trades ever get made.

This league is just different E-man. Doesn't make it shitty that it requires a completely different strategy. The draft is ridiculously important in a league like this. Be patient with your team and maybe it'll work out. Otherwise start looking at some trade options. Best thing about this league is that it will be super competitive just like last year.

I'm in 3 leagues and this is the one I care the least about, mostly because there's not much you can do when one TE is hurt and the other is on a bye week, because you literally have 5 options on who to pick up and none are worth dropping any of the 4 bench players you have left because you know you need them next week when half of your team is on BYE.

That's the greatness of the setup.

Any week any one person's team can get nuked.

yeah no offense but this is the dumbest league i've ever seen. i'm still setting my lineup but made some drafting mistakes and 90% of this league was draft and then i was turned off when i found out about the bonuses which don't make any sense.

but because bench depth is so short, there are lots of random guys that are FA pickups and waiver pickups

I love this setup due to the 2TE and 2DEF positions. Most other leagues allow you to stream QBs and defenses while fighting over WR/RB positions; this league is the exact opposite. Unfortunately we had a few people quit this year, so my QB hoarding strategy isn't really working like I'd hoped.

^The QB and DEF is what I dislike the most. There are only 30 defenses and 30 QBs expected to start. We each have 2 leaving only 6 each week not set as starters. Weeks 8 & 9 each have 6 teams on bye weeks.

So while good drafting could carry you through, this league relies more on week-by-week luck than any I've ever played in. Maybe the person you're up against has all of their starters this week, maybe they have a QB, a TE, and a DEF on bye weeks with no valid options to pick up.

There is only 1 DEF available right now which isn't on a bye week, and there are no QBs available who are expected to start.

I should mention that I have 3 D's and 4 QB's, and would gladly make a trade for a TE worth a damn.

TEs are the most valuable position in this entire league. There's only about 10 in the entire league that are worth a damn, and after that it's a crapshoot. I burnt my first and third draft picks on the TE position and still didn't get real production out of them until week 5.

FYI, you do have an IR slot that you could place Roethlisburger in and pick up someone else if you needed to. Or, you could stash Dwayne Allen in IR and hope for an injury to Jack Doyle.

^I did. That's how I picked up a 3rd D. But I still have a TE problem.

The D I picked up netted me negative points. I would have done better to leave the slot empty.

Can we cut down the number of playoff spots? 8 people is ridiculous considerng there may only be 8 people actually playing by that time.

The records are going to end up pretty skewed. However many people are keeping up with their lineup should make the playoffs.

merely not quitting on fantasy shouldn't justify a person making the playoffs. there's no reason for more than half the league to make the postseason.

I have both TE's and a D out, but there's no one worth picking up for the cost of dropping someone I currently have. I'll have to sacrifice this week to have a chance to win the next.

i missed out on the playoffs this year after winning last year...shows how volatile it is.

Good luck to everyone, rosters have locked for those that did not make the playoffs

Anyone doing Fantasy Baseball in 2017? I'm 2-6 in a league of 12 with $75 entry fee. I finished 2016 in 3rd out of 12.

I love fantasy baseball, but I've never been in a league where every member kept up with it the full season. So I stopped trying.
