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 understand that but just answer this, who's better MJ or LeBron? I honestly could not stand Michael Jordan which some just ignore when I Post. I hated him more than I do LeBron but I don't get  caught up in the moment either and just say someone's the best ever when they don't have the resume to back it up.  I also think Magic was better than LeBron, lets say LeBron wins it all and wins Finals MVP this season: -Magic 5-4 in Championships -LeBron has him 4-3 in League MVP's -LeBron would have him 4-3 in Finals MVP's -Magic 5-4 in Finals, LeBron 4-4 in Finals -LeBron much more Points in his career -Magic much more Assists in his career -Neither have won Defensive Player of the Year.   To me this is much more of a debate and almost dead even, both are pretty even Rebounders as well. Magic still would be the greater winner though and nobody is going to tell me the Boston teams that Magic beat aren't as great as the Warrior teams are now - that is close but Boston was loaded back then as well.  
    • I'm really not trying to get into this discussion because I understand both sides but the people who try to make it look like it is not a discussion really get to me.   People talk about the rings but I don't think one of LeBron's teams were as good as MJs and the Warriors this year and last year were better than any team Jordan played.   And also about the playoff point stat. LeBron did play 33 more games but still has fewer attempts than MJ did. Just shows you how much Jordan shot the basketball. LeBron will be top ten in assists when he retires.
    • Why is that? Just asking. You do know the Jazz were favored by Vegas going into the 1998 Finals and Jazz had HCA but the Bulls still beat them. Also lets say LeBron wins this year. That would give him 4 Championships. If LeBron wins and wins Finals MVP it would be: Jordan 6-4 in Championships Jordan 5-4 in League MVP's/this wont change Jordan 6 Finals MVP's, LeBron would have 4 Jordan 6-0 in Finals, LeBron would be 4-4 Jordan has 10 Scoring Titles, LeBron has 1 Jordan has won Defensive Player of the Year once, LeBron has never won that. Jordan still has more Career Points and hasn't even played as long as LeBron has. -Not trying to start anything but you don't have a leg to stand on saying that. Jordan beats him in nearly everything imaginable that is most important. LeBron now has more Playoff Points but he has played 33 more games to do so. I cant debate with anyone because I list facts that back up my stuff while others just get on here and say LeBron is the best just because.
    • The ball should be placed where the body part that rules a player down hits. Not where the ball was when that happened. If you are going to spot the ball on a sideline grab where the recievers toes are though the ball is out if bounds, then the same spot rule should apply anywhere else on the field
    • The other thing that I like about cats is their fascination with Christmas trees & ornaments that hangs from it's real or fake branches. Cats tend to like batting ornaments playfully around. You know low hanging stuff or items that catch sunlight just right.    Many years ago, Gypsy my calico cat long since gone now started batting a boot yarn ornament with her paw & she got her claw stuck. As a matter of fact, the tree started to topple in her direction, I stopped it just in time from landing on her. I said "Gypsy are you okay?" She looked at me as if to say. "Thanks for the save SW1. My life almost flashed between my eyes & it wasn't pretty at all."    A few Christmas's later, Gypsy started playfully batting around the same ornament & I replied "Now be careful Gypsy. You remember what happened last time right?" She meowed back at me as if to say "Darn it, you're no fun at all. Off to my favorite spot to snooze for a few hours then."    Yeah, we had an understanding. We gave each other space & we know when to check in & say hey what's up? Cats are cool that way. They know when to leave you alone & when to make sure your okay.
