Your team is great.    Just like every team in an 8 team format.    Every team will score 110 points a week

He probably doesn't like it because it's an 8 team league at the most. Seems way to good to be a 10 or 12.

But basically in those leagues, injuries mean very little in effecting your teams unless they are specifically a 1st or 2nd round pick. I get it's probably a fun league you're doing, but any serious FF player isn't going to take something like that serious when real cut throat competition money leagues are 12+ teams and take skill to draft and play throughout the season with.

My league isn't for money and I honestly don't get what skill it takes to start a third string rb or wr hoping he scores a fluke td. Sure you have better talent in 8 team league, but you still have to make right decisions

It takes skill in drafting a 3rd rb or wr because you have to identify matchups. For example, what 3rd CB is Phillip Dorsett going against this week. Also you should never have a 3rd string rb starting except on a bye week. It's very easy, even in a 12 team league to get 2 starting rbs. With plenty of rbs getting 10+ carries a week, there's never a shortage. 8 team leagues I could win with an auto draft, because all of the talent is so good, and everyone is basically even. It almost completely takes away any point of the waiver wire as well, as you won't be dropping your high end talent unless they get injured most of the time.

I abuse the heck out of my waiver wire. The talent pool isn't as high as you think. I've seen 8 team league teams fold to nothing because their team was so lousy.

You're playing correctly then. The majority of the leagues I have played in with 8 teams just keep their teams throughout the year because they don't want to drop a proven high talent that's struggling for a breakout guy because of the league size. It still cripples the waiver wire to an extent though, and makes it more about who had the best draft as most of these breakout stars off waivers can't measure up to a properly executed draft in an 8 team league.

There's also no Kicker, which is not in some leagues, but it takes away some slight strategy as well. I'm assuming that frees a spot for another TE or defense. Personally he should have a 5th WR.

My league, you can get a lot of points for defense of you pick correctly. I base defense by match-up. I don't expect elifert to score 13 tds again and I like Green's potential

I would love to see how your league runs throughout the year. It seems with 8 teams, it would be strange seeing players dropped and picked up. You literally have 5 starting rbs on your team. That is an easy league, my friend. I just can't take that very serious, as long as you have fun though.

Do you play in any auction drafts?--so much different.   I'm in a 12 team auction league with IDP.  The draft takes forever

I've only played in two, won one and 3rd in the other. The 12 team ones are extremely fun and extremely hard. I bought Charles and Lynch last year and both eventually went down. I picked up David Johnson and he helped a ton along with Tim Hightower. The person who really saved me was Cam Newton, as I got him for $17. Basically won me the league. Matt Ryan was the backup and never really needed him. Other league I had Rodgers and kinda struggled. They make you think though. Love the challenge!

True, but it doesn't guarantee they'll have a good year and I'll drop them in a heartbeat if there's someone putting up better numbers

Yeah,  I always nominate players I don't want in hopes the other guys spend a bunch on them

Well, the point I'm trying to make is, you didn't have to sacrifice the rest of your team to get them. You made the right in stocking up on them, but it didn't cost you much. The rest of the team is still good. In a 12 team league, the rest of my team would be relatively bare besides a no1 WR and a solid QB maybe.

I do that as well early. The tough part is late when you only have a few dollars left, you have to check everyone's cash and decide whether to bid a dollar on a player you want, or try and sneak a $2 bid in there and take him. That's when strategy comes in and knowing not to overspend.

Well not exactly. While yes I stockpiled on rbs and wrs, I had to take second tier qbs and tes which I'm fine with because I always find gems on the wire

Absolutely. Usually I'll draft 3 rbs in the first 5 or 6 rounds, 2 in the first 3. Gotta get those guys who are close to featured running backs. Last year in my money league, i took hill and traded for bernard. That worked out as Bernard was the better back.

You quoted the wrong post, lol. Eifert is elite when healthy and Carson Palmer is still a no1 QB. You just didn't get someone like Rodgers, Cam or Luck. I can also argue you were able to wait on QB because only 7 at most were probably chosen before you. So it really leaves a ton out there in an 8 team league.

Yeah for sure. This wasn't a PPR league, but just getting a couple big hit guys like DeAndre Hopkins in the 5th last year and Antonio Brown, really put me way ahead in most weeks. In a 8 team league, a couple people could have matched that, in a 12 team league, I had the best WR's and it carried me, especially getting Gary Barnidge off waivers at TE, and David Johnson at RB. You are rewarded for drafting well, and the breakout waiver stars are good enough to put your team over the top when you choose correctly. It's the right balance of teams, IMO.

I got Hopkins in most leagues in the late second early third last year.    Not gonna happen this year.   I think moncrief will out perform his fantasy draft status this year though.   I'll be hoping to get him in the middle rounds

You had to draft Hopkins early then, I must of got him at a good bargain even last year. Moncrief I completely agree on. I'll be getting him as a #3 WR. Really going to start mocking this week for a money league. Only have time for 1 again with 7 baseball leagues, but I'll put some work into it.

I'm 100X better at fantasy baseball than fantasy football. I love the work and can watch games for hours. Been in 11 money leagues and made the playoffs in 10, finals in 8, and won 4. Also do fantasy baseball on fanduel and have won $2700 (not all of it profit). The deeper rosters are so fun for me, and I love trading. There's so much strategy, like getting a pitching team, a hitting team, a mixture. Usually I'll draft two aces, and trade two or three players for a third one before the season starts. This season, in a couple leagues, I have Bumgarner, Scherzer, and Kluber, and it's worked out wonderful. Was able to draft all 3 in the first 3 rounds. Just my personal strategy. Ever need help and decide to do it, I'm your guy.

4th annual money league of which I am the defending champion (10 team)

 

QB- Cam Newton, Tony Romo

RB- David Johnson, CJ Anderson, Demarco Murray, Frank Gore, Danny Woodhead

WR- Brandin Cooks, Julian Edleman, Doug Baldwin, Stefon Diggs, Sammie Coates

TE- Gary Barnidge, Martellus Bennett (freaking stole him)

K- Cairo Santos

DEF- Arizona Cardinals

4th year in a 10-team "dynasty" league. It's a weird format where we only have 15 roster spots and keep 10, but have to drop 1 of our top 5. 

 

QB- Palmer

RB- Forte, Rawls, Rashad Jennings, Yeldon, Deangelo Williams, Christine Michael

WR- A. Brown, OBJ, K. Allen, J. Gordon, Kevin White

TE- Greg Olsen

K- Catanzaro

DEF- PIT

 

I've run into a string of bad luck with my RBs. A combination of bye weeks, injuries, and refused trades forced me to drop Carlos Hyde mid-year last year. The same week caused me to miss out on David Johnson on waivers (right before he took off). Forte sustains a minor injury and suddenly loses his guaranteed RB1 status. I am not an occupant of the CMike hype train, but Rawl's injury has made me nervous. Of course, Jacksonville decided they needed Ivory instead of rolling with Yeldon...ugh.

    • I get what you're driving at BLS. I just remember the nightmare known as Curtis Painter in 2011. Translation: Quality backups aren't that easy to find & there's no such thing as an elite 2nd stringer field general. They don't really exist meaning all backup QBs have flaws.    In layman's terms, when the face of your franchise goes down; you're basically screwed that calendar yr anyway because veterans off the street are injury prone with age & recovery issues & anybody worthy of your attention is locked down financially on other team rosters for the short term future. 
    • You can say that again WM. It's like some people think Jacoby will be great just because he was in the same room Brady was studying film a few times.    Look, I respect the hades out of Brady & his SB consistency. I also was amazed at how quickly Jacoby used wrist band numbers to execute our offense in short order. It just bothers me when players & coordinators under BB's coaching tree get all these job interview opportunities  & then when they leave Foxboro their clout fades too.    If anybody breaks this trend of leaving the Boston net & succeeding, Josh McDaniels will be the one to shatter this stigma IMO. [Yes, I think Josh will flourish in his 2nd HC gig too once that preferred vacancy becomes available. This happens a lot with your 2nd shot at the helm running a NFL program.]
    •   The owner of the company says 30 of 32 NFL teams use his service.       I'm sorry he didn't bring out the paper work to show it to you.     But typically,  unless there is reason to believe he's lying,  the man,  in this case,  Cris Collinsworth, gets the benefit of the doubt.   As opposed to you,   who doesn't like the service,  and just denies,  denies,  and denies.....   Oh,  and as for Chip Kelly......     Rich Dudes have lots of ways of making money.    They typically don't chose to make it by buying part of a company that, in the past,  they have openly said negative things about.      Goes to credibility.      They can invest their money elsewhere.   Kelly bought in because he likes what he sees.  
    •   None of those people talk in the 3rd person seriously.   If any of those three talk in the third perosn,   they are mocking themselves and others who do.   And having worked with on-air people who have huge talents,  I think I can say confidently that none of these three guys has an ego the way the current occupent of the White House does.     Not even close.     That man is in a league of his own.   Apologies for the political talk.    
    •     So far,  I confess I don't think of RG3 when I watch Brissett.      I think he's much more of a pocket passer than RG3 ever was.    I saw RG3 as an athlete who could play QB.      I see Brissett as a QB who has some athleticism.   Brissett is taller,  bigger,  heavier.     Not nearly the athlete but much more a physical presense.   6'4" 235 vs. 6'2" and 220.     I think Brissett is going through the normal young QB growth that most every young QB goes through.     I'd expect over time he makes fewer and fewer mistakes.       As for what we'd get for Brissett in a trade....    I don't know if you spend any time in the chat room during a game,  but this past Monday,  I spent some time there,  and when Brissett was good (1st half)  the Colts fans there had us gettng at least a 1st round draft pick for him,  and possibly even more!     I think a Day 2 pick is not far off,   he was taken in the 3rd round and demonstrated a good level of competence in a short amount of time.      I suppose it's possible he'd get only a 4,    but I don't see Brissett getting traded for a 5.     I think Ballard would much rather keep him than trade him for that.
