Yahoo thought it was bullshit. Considering that Dallas plays Atlanta week 10 at Atlanta and will likely put up a negative score, the trade is likely worse than Yahoo calculates. I'd be better off not playing a defense at all that week than risk playing Dallas.

When you made this trade offer, Eric Berry hadn't been injured yet.

a counter offer assumes I wanted something else on your team. in 3 weeks that KC defense will be worthy of a flex spot RB from someone.

If am able, does anyone want to fill in two spots in this league?

it's incredibly tough scoring and rostering but we have 2 members that obviously don't play.

They won't be invited back, but if anyone wants to fill in their spot halfway through the season let me know via PM before Sunday with an email address to contact you.

I think we should remove wins and losses against those teams. Pure dumb luck if you were scheduled against them at full strength or when half their players were on a bye week. Even if it gives me a worse record, I'm tired of it happening.

I replaced them, they have their new owners in place for this year and next.

Thanks to synapse

PLAYOFFS ARE UPON US....This is the most important week of the year. It's win and get in.

Once you're in the playoffs anything can happen in this most DIFFICULT part of the season.

I kid you not. From here on out is what separates the men from the boys. Will you join the ranks atop GOAT mountain? Or will you crumble in the playoffs like a sand castle in the tide.

why on earth do we have 8 teams in the playoffs out of 12? 4 is all that's needed, and 6 would be pushing it.

4 teams implies another week of regular season, meaning I'm not guaranteed a spot. I made this exact same argument last year.

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.

I was first in points scored but in 9th place when I said this last year. a 12 team league with 2 teams that quit outright shouldn't send 8 teams to the playoffs. it makes the regular season pointless.

Why am I in 2nd place? I beat Wahoowa head to head week 7.

Also, I'm fine with 8 team playoff if it's a 4 team winner's bracket and then 5-8 can have a "aww shucks, at least they tried" bracket.

Or is that just for tied points during a playoff matchup? I can't find anything that says playoff seeding tie breaker.

Oh well, bring it.

I wish fantasy football was simply decided by who scored the most points through week 16. head to head matchups don't really make sense, and the best team rarely wins the playoffs This is why I prefer my fanduel friends league to all my other leagues - whoever has the 5 highest scores through the course of the year wins.

So there is no need for week to week matchups in that system. Where's the fun in that?

Or in only allowing 4/12 teams into the playoffs? And are those head to head or just points scored?

Add weekly bonuses for the top scoring team, so teams have incentive to play every week. there is absolutely nothing fun about head to head matchups.

allowing half or more of the teams in the playoffs rewards mediocrity and makes the regular season relatively meaningless. it would be like a 128 team NCAA tourney.

We're not playing for anything, so I don't understand what the deal is.

But 2 QB, TE, and D/ST is a dumb roster.

the 2QB, 2TE, 2DEF roster setup is a great idea. Unlike other boring fantasy football systems where drafting QBs, TEs and defenses before round 8 is a mistake, this setup makes those positions more valuable than RBs and WRs. You can't just stream them from week to week, so it actually forces you to invest thought into how you draft every position. Instead, there are decent options on the waiver wire for RB and WR week to week with scraps left over for QB, DEF, and TE.

^Also brings luck and chance more into play because there aren't enough players to go around to have worthy subs for bye weeks and injuries.

Also, head to head should absolutely be the tiebreaker, since that's how normal seeding is done. I got screwed on that one.

points should always be the tiebreaker. You got screwed because you didn't score as many points as the person who placed ahead of you.

[Edited on December 12, 2017 at 10:53 AM. Reason : you were 7th in the league in points scored. You had no business being in 1st place.]

Who the hell, what kind of terrible league lets this EyinStein16 character not only get in the playoffs, but yet wins a playoff game to face my squad this week.

Im in the championship. I warned you, THIS LEAGUE IS NOT EASY.

League winner + regular season standings leader + most points scored = domination

My QB draft gamble paid off pretty well. Looking forward to next year.

let's do this, but trim down the number of playoff teams to either 4 or at most 6.

If we do have an entry fee this year to encourage people to keep playing, then we need to award weekly top performance. Otherwise, people will still quit.

Lost by 0.24 points, had 21.4 points sitting on the bench by a Jets' TE only owned in 4% of all fantasy leagues.

(and those 0.24 points could very well be what keeps me out of the playoffs)
