If y’all need an extra I’ll join this year.
There are three rules that I live by: never get less than twelve hours sleep; never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city; and never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body. Now you stick to that, and everything else is cream cheese.

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.

I find that Chuck aand I share common ground on this issue. Who'd a thunk it? Expansion I think is a good idea.

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.

Currently all 3 work for me.  I travel a fair bit for work so that could change, If Im unable to attend I have someone that will draft for me.  My preference would be one of the Monday dates, but I will find a way to make any of the days work.
There are three rules that I live by: never get less than twelve hours sleep; never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city; and never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body. Now you stick to that, and everything else is cream cheese.

Thanks!

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?

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.

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 actually kind of liked my draft, so of course Yahoo gave me a lower grade than Hap’s robo picks

I am Hammond Eggs-perennial league doormat.


I made a robo pick because my DirecTV internet politely wet down about 45 minutes before the draft and stayed out until after midnight. Maybe the Gods intervened and saved me from myself.

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.

Robo got a D+. That seems unfair. Why shouldn't robo produce AN AVERAGE DRAFT?

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

I never felt good about Cleveland's defense but all the research I looked at told me to pick them.  Or maybe Tennessee's a better team than I reckoned.

Ha! So much for draft grades being worth a fuck. Looks like I'll finish with the lowest points total of all for week one. Ha!

My draftbot (graded itself D+) garnered me around 86, but about five points too little.

Dream Crushers vs Navin, is the most point I've seen in a couple of years. 124.06 to 131.71. Tough for Dream Crushers to score that much and lose.

There are three rules that I live by: never get less than twelve hours sleep; never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city; and never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body. Now you stick to that, and everything else is cream cheese.

Saquon Barkley is out for up to 8 weeks so I’m feeling great about that overall first pick

Half of this equation is related to the post about Barkley directly above.
