Post by: chuck on July 24, 2019, 12:21:22 am
By the way, since Navin wants to play, if he doesn't end up replacing a former owner who is understandably intimidated by our collective fantasy acumen, I'm happy to open it up to two new managers. Mainly because I spent most of last year feeling like I had too many good players and found myself wishing we could water the league down some.

But really, I'd be happy to add more owners if it comes to that.

Second chuck’s motion if the bench size is cut down. It’s already too big. You fantasy mavens hoard multiple TEs and kickers.

Post by: DVauthrin on July 25, 2019, 02:08:15 am
I have no problem with expansion, so Mark and Navin can both play.  Right now, I’m still waiting to hear from utastro and Nate if they want to play again.  Depending on their response, we will either have a 12 or 14 team league.  Either way, based on the reduced bench suggestions, I’m lowering ours from six to four.

Scoring question.   It says you get 6 points for a kick or punt return.   Is that just for your team defense, or if you have a WR that also returns kicks, would he get points for it?
Title: Re: OWA 2019 Fantasy Football

Sounds good. You can probably get a guy like Gabbert in the 6th. Don't want to draft a qb too high.

The player would get the six points along with the Defense/Special Teams unit he plays for.

Title: Re: OWA 2019 Fantasy Football
Post by: DVauthrin on August 26, 2019, 12:51:54 pm
Also, I just went into the settings and made some adjustments for kickers and defenses.

For kickers, I removed negative points for missed field goals and extra points.  You just don’t get points if they miss. For defenses, I tweaked the points you get based on how many points they allow.  Shutouts are now worth 14, 1-6 =10 points, 7-13=7 points, 14-20=3 points, 21-27=0 points, 28-34=-3 points, 35 or more=-7 points

With low scoring games rare, I felt like rewarding defenses that do play really well that day is a good move.

I'm going Justin Tucker first before any of you goons can sweep him out from under me like you did last year. That or Jason Witten. I feel like he's due for a bounce-back year.

I wouldn’t sweat it. The rating system shined praise on Sphinx’s draft and noted that his best pick was Eric Ebron. I am not down on Sphinx’s team but rating the best pick on highest rated team as the poster boy for touchdown regression whose QB retired 2 weeks before the season may suggest the robot is huffing paint thinner.

Maybe it's meant to be relative and your fellow owners are all OUTSTANDING.

Yahoo was puzzled why I might have drafted Johnson who, as far as they're concerned, will languish on the bench in Cleveland.

HAHA, WRONG YOU ARE! HE WILL LANGUISH ON THE FIELD IN HOUSTON! HAHAHAHA!

I think the auto-writer/grader was saying that the gap between the average draft position of previous Yahoo Fantasy Football drafts (77) and when Ebron was selected in our draft (113) somehow made him the "best" pick. Anyway, I waived Ebron and picked up Delaney Walker today

This is exactly that, for instance my "best" pickup was listed as AJ Green and he might be a steal but he may also miss half the season
