First off I'd like to thank everyone for one of the most interesting and intense seasons I've ever seen. We currently have two teams with 9-4 records,  two teams with 8-5 records,  and two teams with 7-6 records.  

 

There is zero room for error for those 6 teams, as 4th place is still up in the air. Unfortunate season for the others. 

 

Second I want to apologise for the lack of trophies this year.  I hope ESPN finds a way to bring them back. 

 

But with the end of the season,  comes the end of season review and discussion about things we might want to change for next year. 

 

A few of thoughts I would like to present to the league; 

 

1. instituting one or two IR spots. Allowing us to stash our "O" designated players instead of dropping them in order to pick up a replacement.  Thoughts? If you want IR, how many slots, 1 or 2?

 

2. Maintain two divisions,  or have one division and the top 4 records make the playoffs.  It didn't happen this season,  but in the past we have had a team not make the playoffs while a division winner with a worse record does.  Thoughts?

 

3. Having 6 teams in playoffs with 1 and 2 seeds getting a bye.  This would require us reducing the season by one game,  and is more applicable in a league with one division. But can be instituted in a two division league. We use to have a 13 game season when the championship covered two weeks. So that's not new. 

 

4. Waiver wire. Continue with rotational order,  or change to Free Agent Acquisition Budget (FAAB). For those unfamiliar with FAAB, you essentially get $100 in fake money,  for the season,  to blind bid on waiver pickups. You don't see what others are bidding,  so you just have to guess how much that player might go for and manage how much your willing to spend. When you run out of money,  you essentially have to bid $0 and hope nobody else picks up that player.  Gives you a better chance at getting waiver pickups, instead of relying on the randomness of waiver orders. 

 

Finally,  this was suggested by Team Hulce, to make it a money league. Doesn't have to be expensive,  $5, $10, $20. Thoughts?

 

Any other suggestions that the league wants to propose?

 

Thanks again and look forward to discussing. 


Thanks again for running this league. I do enjoy it.

 

Here are my votes:

 

1. Yes, but only for players who are placed on IR by their teams, which is what I think you meant. Not for any player that is injured and doubtful or ruled out for a week. I’d prefer two spots but I’d be ok if it was just one.

 

2. Not sure I care either way....maybe someone will post why they are for or against and will persuade my decision.

 

3. I am open to increasing the amount of teams that make the playoffs. I don’t think it has been an issue with this league, but I am in another league that increased the the number of teams and it has helped to keep everyone engaged and setting good lineups each week.

 

4. Keep it as is.

 

5. I would be willing to pay. 
 

 

Thanks again.

1. Currently in my Yahoo league, if a player gets ruled out, then they can go on IR. So for instance,  Davante Adams was never put on IR, but was out for a significant amount of time.  He would be eligible for an IR slot.  Limiting to IR-R does add some flexibility,  but since this does not happen too often,  it essentially would not make much of a difference. 

 

2. My point was not necessarily my actual opinion as an arguement for, but just stating the main argument for, helping top prevent poorer teams from making the playoffs over better teams. 

 

3. Good point, I didn't think about that. 

 

4. Thanks

 

5. I'll have to check more into it,  but leaguesafe is an app/site I've heard is a good tool to manage buy-ins over a personal pay pal account.  Essentially putting it into a 3rd party pot that the commissioner then pays out at the end of the season 

 

Thanks for voting so quickly on these.

Thanks for managing this league!

 

1.  I'd like to have one IR spot.  We can make it just a "reserve" spot for injured players, not necessarily players actually on IR irl.

 

2.  I can see the benefits of both scenarios, so I don't really care either way.

 

3.  I like the idea of more teams making the playoffs.

 

4.  I'm ok with the way it is.

 

5.  I'd be willing to pay a small ante.  Then we'd have to decide how the winnings get distributed.  (League champ gets 100% vs rewards for 1st and 2nd, with 3rd getting their money back, etc.)

 

Thanks again, and Good Luck the rest of the season!  :thmup:

1) I’d want a IR spot for sure

2) Either is fine

3) That sounds good to me

4) I like FAAB but I don’t care if we do it one way or another

5) I like it as a free league, as I don’t have much extra cash floating around. If the majority votes for this though I can just dip out. 

 

Great season, everyone!!

Depends on how small.  I can see a $5 buy-in having 100% go to 1st. Typically in much larger leagues (in a $50 league myself). 1st place gets 50%, 2nd gets 27% ($135) 3rd place gets their money back and the remaining $65 is allocated for high scores each week ($5 for each week for 13 weeks).

 

Could also see $40, then 2nd and 3rd get their money back, or $35, $10, $5.

 

But typically you see winner take all in low buy-ins. 

 

Just up to the league to decide.  However,  I always like to see a 7/10 vote before instituting any changes.

Thanks for the votes.

 

I would hate to see you out of the league.  I feel your pain,  as me and my wife play,  that's double the buy in for me with only half the chance at winning cause she's terrible... don't tell her I said that lol.

Oh it's not necessarily a fix, but rather introducing things that might improve everyone's experience (IR slots for example) or add some variety from year to year (FAAB vs standard waiver order). 

 

Just to expand people's experiences.

You fell back there at the end. I hope it continues instead of having another unfortunate loss like our last matchup where I scored 140. Though our projections are pretty close, I'm really rooting for one of your players. I've got Thomas in my money league, helped get me to the semis last week and I really need some good points from him this week as I face the #1 seed.  Our projections in that league are only a point and a half difference. So lets both hope for a 40pt game from him...but only catching TDs from Taysom Hill and not brees lol.

Yea my RB’s have hurt big time the last month or so. I knew I wouldn’t make it far in the playoffs unless I had players go off or some 0’s by the opponent. 

 

Its OK, I’ve  managed to win the last 2 years. I’ll get the crown back next year! Your team is going to be hard to beat.

Ya, I'm pretty amazed at my PF. I'll have to look,  but that might be a league high. 

 

I hope I can beat Hulce, but he always pulls some nonsense out against me. It'll be a rematch of our inaugural season.

    • Fromm seems like a career backup   I think Eason is a better candidate for the tier 2 QBs 
    • Not sure what you have seen during college or post college to determine that one Qb is a game manager and another other is not.  The physicality prism?     All the Qb can do is to see where to throw the ball, then throw it there accurately. The WRs have to go unscripted too, and find an open spot, or a spot that he can be lead to.      After 5 seconds from the snap of the ball, whether the Qb makes that decision and throws the ball from the pocket or by running to the right hash mark doesn't matter, other than being on the right hash mark provides half as many opportunities to see where to throw the ball and throw it there accurately.   If unscripted means that my $125 mil Qb is carrying the team by making 25 yard scrambles for TDs, and is treated as a runner, I don't want that.  Its pretty to watch and nice to have, but its not really what the Qb position is about, IMO.
    • I believe Reich has shown that he adjusts his offense to his QBs style, Therefore it's most important to get the best QB we can draft, instead of getting the best fit for a certain system   To me Fromm is like Gordon who has a lot to prove (if not more because he had a way more talented team). I keep hearing how smart he is but, Fitzpatrick is one of the smartest QBs to play the game and I wouldn't want him on our team, If we drafted him though I wouldn't trade back into the 1st for him because that would mean at least 3-4 QBs were taken and we could get him with one of our second rnd picks.          
    • The scrambling ability is not why I don’t want Fromm. I want a guy that can put a team on his shoulders when things aren’t going right.  A game manager is not going to give us a team that can compete with Mahomes the next decade. The ability to make plays unscripted though is something that is important in the NFL today with players getting faster. Having a QB that can go off script when a play breaks down is huge.
    • Jones is who I want...even if it's a franchise and trade.   As for DEs...I would look at Clowney. Would step right in and replace Sheard.
