I don't have the slightest idea how fantasy football works

It's pretty simple, really. So you draft players to fill positions on your team via a draft (usually a snake draft where it rotates, sometimes an auction where like an auction you try and get the players you want but only have a certain amount of points to do so. Depending on how many positions a league has (for example, a league can have 2 QB's, 3 RB's, 4 WR's, 2 TE's, etc) will determine the extent of talent throughout the league. A standard league is like 10 teams with 1 QB, 2 RB's, 3 WR's, 1 TE, 1 Kicker, 1 Team Defense, and 2 flex positions which you can slot in almost every position except usually QB, Defense or kicker. 

Now the scoring for fantasy football is very simple in the standardized form. For a QB, 25 passing yards is a point. For a RB, 10 yards rushing is a point. For a RB, WR, or TE, 10 yards receiving is a point. A passing TD from a QB is 4 points whereas a rushing or receiving TD for any position is 6 points. The kicking and defense points are a little more complicated but basically that's the gist of it.

Andy had one already.

Fx Stryker Andy's isn't a fantasy football so to speak. You would have to ask him. It's like we just pick the winners each week and he keeps track of who is ahead at the end of the season. There is a Fantasy Football Section here on the forum maybe you can find an answers in that section.

Sorry Fx I guess I was wrong because I saw that Andy did have a Fantasy Football and he also had the other thing I was talking about I think. I know someone had that where we just picked the winners each week and the person that had the most wins at the end of the season won it.  That was what I was in. He must run both. That's a lot of work for Andy. I may be totally confused as to what I'm thinking about. Wouldn't be the first time. haha

You are correct lovely susie, Andy has a fantasy league which had 3 leagues in it and going down to 2 this year.  He also had the post with picking the winning teams throughout the league each week.   Looking forward to both starting up again.

I've been in leagues a lot longer than you've been alive.  You really need to join a free league on ESPN or CBSsports.  You'll have a blast.

 

The only problem is you start looking at games completely different.  I've had to convince myself that I always root for the Colts first and then for my fantasy team players, no matter who they're playing.  It's tough when your fantasy team guys play the Colts.

I would go as far as to say YOU have never commished ONE?  

 

Am I wrong?  

 

If so please tell me why YOU would welcome ding dong's into a "competitive" FREE league?

 

 

Not being a *....           but you wouldn't know that...  Would YOU?

Lol Colts fantasy football judge, jury, and executioner.

Easily.

 

1. Minka Kelly

2. Adriana Lima

3. Katrina Bowden

4. Selena Gomez (she's not hot but cute as #) 

5. Jessica Alba

 

I think any positive list that starts with Minka Kelly is a good list, indeed!     :thmup:

 

I'm talking a Super Blue Chip talent!   A top pick in any draft!     A real franchise player!     :thmup:

 

Nice to know that at my age my heart can still get to racing!    (If you know what I mean!)       :thmup:

I commish a league every year, last year being an exception as I was moving and didn't have the time or energy to put everything together. But other than picking a time that works well for everyone to live draft I don't find them that difficult.

However, my comment to you was merely a joke, as I'm fairly sure the poster you were quoting was just kidding.

And for the record I had a friend who accidentally drafted a defense in the first round (dumb dumb accident not intentionally as he knows better) and he finished runner-up. One dumb pick doesn't always drown you lol.

Thanks Coltman51 at least I haven't lost my mind in the last couple of months. haha  I think I will stick with the weekly picks.

Andy can do what he wants...  but we had a REALLY good league last year ...     a "forum"  league.     But a couple had "pressing issues" and simply could not make the time to adjust the roster.... .    

 

and their teams sucked....  imagine that ...     

 

Point is we had ONE team draft ALL rookies...   that team should have been deleted ASAP  if we want a "competitive" league

 

And I personally think THIS FREE league could be VERY competitive....       it would be a feather on one's cap IMO,

Nothing kills a league like a guy who auto drafts, and never changes their lineup. Just brings the league down.

    • QB, LT, WR (or TE), EDGE, One Back Seven player.   A team must be very good in all 5 of those spots.  A team must have one of those players on offense and defense (two players) be elite in order to be a "playoff" team.   So how close are we to that structure, and can you find those players in anything other than the first round....or the top 15.   How many years of first round picks...or top 15 picks.... are we looking at?   Maybe there is a shorter way.  Maybe we have a head start with some of those players already on the roster.  IDK.     
    • They added a top prospect qb that was coming off one of the best college seasons ever.  If we could add a JB then we might be able to do the same    If we get someone like Levis or Mckee we have a ways to go 
    • This GM scares me when he thought Pryor could play left tackle (the most important position on the line) when you trade for a statue QB with a noodle arm. Then he also thought that Pinter could start at RG. Two big whiffs that killed our chances at winning football. Also agreeing to trade for Wentz and Ryan were both terrible moves. Also he said we are happy with our wide receiver room when they are below average and can't beat man to man coverage. These 3 things killed any chance we had at winning so thus in my opinion I do not want him to pick our next QB.
    • Id like to say anything can happen, but if you really dissect it we are poor in the most important positions.  - We need a QB, some teams spend 5-10 years looking for one, we are not immune to this possibility.   - We need a LT, we can hope on Raimann but he is a raw 3rd rounder.   - We need more weapons, the best teams in the league have at least one very explosive wide out. Pitt just doesn't seem to be on the same level as the Jeffersons, Chase's, Diggs, Kelces, Aj Browns of the world.    - We also have some ridiculous contracts tied up in the Oline in all the positions not named LT, which is conventionally the highest paid. These players are playing poorly on top of that creating some major salary cap problems.    - We are better in pass rush, but despite adding Yannick and Paye getting better, we are still very mid in terms of pass rush. We need better. Yannick is a one year rental also, no guarantee he will be back.   - We probably need a slot corner to replace Kenny and Gilmore isn't getting any younger.  
    • I don't agree with the this topic at all. Some recent history. The Rams had 9 consecutive losing seasons from 1990-1998 then put a grocery bagger in at qb in 1999 and won the Super Bowl(remarkable wasn't it). But wait, it gets better. From 2009-2016 they had 10 consecutive losing seasons then went to the super bowl in the 2018 season with Jarrad Goff at qb(I laugh hysterically every time I think about that)! The Steelers missed the playoffs four times from 1998-2003, put a rookie in at qb in 2004 went 15-1 then won the Super Bowl in 2005. San Francisco had 8 consecutive losing seasons from 2003-2010, then hired Jim Harbaugh in 2011, didn't have a qb but still went to the super bowl in 2012. So with all these examples of fast turnarounds of teams who were absolutely dreadful, how can the Colts be so far away from contention when we are only 4 games under .500 since 2017 and 2 of those seasons Brissett was the quarterback????????? If Kronke, Rooney, and DeBartolo can have quick, impressive turn arounds, why can't Irsay? After all this team is a lot more solid than any of those examples I presented here.
