In terms of a board like this I am not entirely sure. I am a member of one of the NFL teams boards and there is a dedicated fantasy section on there. In terms of info the sites I have used in the past Rotoworld, ESPN, Yahoo, Nfl.com, fftoday.com, fftoolbox.com, bleacher report and a few others I can't remember off the top of my head. When the season comes around there is a bit of talk fantasy wise on here. If you want to learn about the drafts, try a mock draft. It is the best way to get a feeling for it.

different leagues have different team structures.
my league last year had 3 WR, 2 RB and 5 bench, the year before 2 WR and 2 RB and 6 bench.
It depends how the commish of your league sets it up


espn have a mock draft and cheat sheets that are helpful

Sweet thanks guys.

Anyone interested in making a league with anyone who's interested from fanfooty?

We tried last year but generally found there wasn't enough players to fill a league. About 4-5 of us joined a random ESPN league and if we're all on at the same time we'll probably do that again

We had a couple running 2 years back. One on ESPN and one on Yahoo. It was hard to get people interested with the lockout last year. If we start organising it early this year we will get the numbers.

Title: Re: NFL Fantasy 2012/13
Post by: Mat0369 on June 12, 2012, 01:09:15 PM
I would say either a 10 or 12 team league is good. I like the 12 since it is a bit tougher and requires you to do a bit more research and work waivers a lot better. 10 is perfect if you are just starting out because you are left with a lot more depth and it is easier to manage.

Whoever is interested leave your name in this thread and we can organise a draft day when preseason comes around.

I have been in a league the last few years that uses 3 WR's instead of a flex option. In a 12 team league I had Wes Welker, Dwayne Bowe and Victor Cruz as my 3 starters last season and still lost. Damn week 15 kills me every season.

I have done it before and I am happy to do it again if nobody else wants to do it. Does anyone have a preference to what site or scoring system we use (ESPN, Yahoo, PPR, .5 PPR)?

Manual draft mate.

Have you ever been commish before tabs? Usually Mat does our commish but if you know what you are doing, it isn't a problem.

And usually we do ESPN or Yahoo. Either way I'm not fussed.

Marcz has done it in the past as well. I am happy for someone else to do it but I don't mind doing it either. If everyone wants me to do it I will run some possible scoring settings and lineups (flex or 3 WR's) to see what everyone thinks.

we just need a even number of teams for the league.

They can be anything from 4-20 @ ESPN and we can have 1 or more divisions.

I am happy for tabs to do it. Most hosting sites have a tool where you can assign a manager to help out with the commish duties. If tabs has any troubles or he is going on holidays he can assign me the manager tool as the secondary commissioner to help out.

You can have 8 teams but the majority of the teams end up stacked and it removes an element of trying to find sleeper picks deeper in the draft.

If they both want to I can drop out for them, I can be an assistant coach?

Monstrum was referring to the commissioner duties not numbers for the league. We still need more numbers.

yeh i'm really lookin forward to my first season i'v watched it before and liked it and thats without knowing the rules, i'v got a better idea now lol.. :P

@CW: how do the trades work? i think u can trade in an un drafted free agent in whenever u want... but with other guys is it a matter of making the trade between the 2 coaches in the league?

as Tabs give us formats and such i'll post them at the start of the thread to keep tabs on it (pardon the pun)

i will post later on this but basically you can trade as much as you like but it goes in order.

If you are on the bottom of the table you get first choice. IF you want to trade 2 players then you have to wait for everyone else to trade before you can trade your 2nd player
Title: Re: NFL Fantasy 2012/13
Post by: Mat0369 on June 15, 2012, 12:48:42 AM
If you have played DT or SC pro it is similar to both of those I think. The draft is randomly set and works in a snake format. So whoever picks first will pick last in round 2 and then get back to back picks with the first pick of round 3. This continues to around round 15 or so (depending on the bench spots). After the draft is complete and your team is filled you can pick up and drop whoever you want that is a free agent. There is a waiver system at the end of each week. All the free agents at the end of lockout go to waivers. This also works with players who have been dropped. You can use the waiver system strategically (drop someone on bye and get them again if you have first claim on waivers). This can either reset after each week so that last gets first pick of the free agent or that whoever makes the last pick goes to last in line of the waivers (first might not make a claim for 3 weeks while everyone else has so they get first pick on the waivers in week 4). You can also trade between teams. Normally if a trade occurs it also changes your waiver position. I could offer you 1 player for 2 meaning you would have to pick up one off waivers where I would have to drop someone extra. So a trade is what is completed between two managers where a free agent pick up or a waiver wire pick up is when you pick up someone from the free agent list.

I hope that makes some sense

all i did last season was wait till the live draft lobby opened up and just did live drafts for 7 different teams. But this season i'll join your league plus the one i setup and do nfl managed live draft leagues for the other 5 teams.

There are HEAPS of fantasy NFL fan sites and online strategy guides, but all you really need to know is which players to draft in what order.

most of my teams scored the highest in my leagues over the season i drafted using a guide from one of those sites.

first you get the best 2 running backs available, then a QB (some peopple go early to get one of the few best quarter backs) but the best running backs score more.

then a couple of wide recievers, another running back, a tight end, another wide reciever, another running back, a DEF and a Kicker, and a back up quarter back, fill out the rest with running backs and wide recievers.

there are byes so you need back up DEF and kickers but i just got them out of the pool before mine had byes and dropped my worst WR or RB to pick up the DEF or Kicker I needed for that round.

DEF and Kickers score shower mostly so you draft them late, but in the live draft with the list of players it shows the average draft position each player has been taken as well as the default ranking the NFL gives them so it's pretty easy to work out when and who you should be getting.

But because of the byes you want to look at which teams have the byes when as you can't afford a team all with the same bye because you can't afford to be dropping stars to the pool to pick up SPUDS to cover byes, as you probably won't get your star back out of the pool before one of the other teams picks them up.

It depends on your league settings. If it is a ppr league how much passing touchdowns are worth and so forth. I have used this strategy in the past but Aaron Rodgers is worthy of a 1st round pick. He can win you a league game on his own. Same with a WR like Megatron.

No no salary cap you draft the best players you can get no cost allocated to them just a certain number of each player you can field. You can have a mixed "bench" a couple of back up DEF or QB or none at all and have extra RB or WR instead.

Post by: Capper on June 15, 2012, 08:22:29 PM
The season starts on Sep 5th, 17 rounds, bye rounds are from R4-11 (each team has 1 bye)

Roster
I think we will go with the team defense rather than everyone trying to build their own. Rosters are made up of QBs, RBs, WRs, TEs, DST and Kickers. I will wait to see how many people we get before deciding on how many of each.

For those of you who cant wait he is Mr Roto's top 200 for this season
http://sports.espn.go.com/fantasy/football/ffl/story?page=2012fantasyfootballrankings200

There will be other "Cheat Sheets" available closer to the season starting

Scoring via ESPN
http://cannetti.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/Scoring-Breakdown1.pdf

The draft.
For the first year draft positions will be done randomly (next year reverse order of final position on ladder).
Team 1 will select first, then 2 and so on to team 10. Then 10 selects again then 9, down top team 1. Then you repeat until rosters are full.
eg 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1.

Trades
Trading can be done via 2 methods The waiver wire or with each other.
The waiver wire allows all teams to put forward their trades and then 1 by 1 (from lowest on the ladder to first) each team has their trade confirm or denied. What does this mean?? Well if a team trades in a player and then another team higher wants that exact player then the second teams trade is denied.
Trading between each team is allowed however it is put to a vote by all other teams. More nahs than yahs then trade vetoed.

@ MAT0369 - I played all NFL managed default leagues, being my first year i didn't want to try custom leagues you need to understand a lot more to be competative when you start changing the setup scoring ect.

I did however take Rogers (being a packers fan) first round last season and I also took the packers DEF earlier than i should have in one draft.

Got my favourite tight end early in one too, just a general rule under default settings you want the best RB & WR before your QB

UNLESS  you are taking one of the very few "level above" quarterbacks first round. usually three or four go round 1, the rest can wait till round 4 or 5 or even 6 as they are much closer together in scoring after those elite few

agree? you probably know more than me first season last season. cant wait for this one, no wonder fantasy football is so big in USA it is awesome.

I have played for the last 4-5 seasons. The RB first then WR pick was the general strategy in past years. With the NFL shifting to a pass 1st league guys like Rodgers, Brees and Brady are the TOP scorers in all of Fantasy Football. Last year the RB draft class was pretty weak. So it was more important to get a decent above everyone else tier running back early. So the top 5 picks should have been RB's since there was a lack of depth. After that it would have been a reach to take a RB in that position that early. So a player like Rodgers or Brees in the 6-12 region is a good pick. With the way the NFL is moving being a pass first league, depending where you are picking, you have to change your strategy. Stud RB's are a premium since the top of the class is so thin, WR's are a bit deeper, QB's are going to rack up your points. This season if I was picking at the back end of a draft I would look at taking a QB or a stud WR compared to 4 years ago when a RB was a must. I would rather the guaranteed points then reach for a RB.

A WR like Megatron or Andre Johnson (his injury last season slowed him down) who catches a lot of TD's and gets a ton of yardage are the WR's you look for early in the regular scoring draft. It is all about yardage and TD's in regular scoring leagues. Those guys are a class above again.

PPR leagues would also change your ratings in picks. Ranking your players all depends on your scoring system. When you look at PPR leagues a guy like Wes Welker is worth a lot more. The same with pass catching RB's. So Shady McCoy and Matt Forte are worth more in a PPR league compared to AP who was worth more in a regular league.

Title: Re: NFL Fantasy 2012/13
Post by: Mat0369 on June 15, 2012, 09:58:32 PM
In terms of rosters I was thinking something along the lines of this
QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, WR, TE, D/ST, K, with 6 or 7 bench spots. 6 if we want to make it tougher.

I think we should have fractional points as well. This helps eliminate a tie (or makes it more amazing when there is one).

In terms of scoring settings, passing TD's worth 6 points not 4, you can have negative points, INT's are worth -2 instead of -1. So if you pick a QB who throws a lot of TD's but also happens to turn it over a lot, it has more of an effect. I also like the PPR settings, so either a full or a .5 PPR. Maybe bonus scores as well for long bomb TD's (over 40 yards if they are caught, thrown or ran) or yardage surpassed (400 passing yards you get a 5 point bonus). 1 point for every 50 return yards, negative points on pix 6's thrown. I played with some interesting defensive settings last year where there were points for 3 and outs and 4th down stops on the D/ST.

Let me know what you all think I can post them in more detail if people are interested.

Quality Mat0369 all makes sense, I'd be interested in a league you set-up a bit more detail maybe on plans for scoring but i get the general idea :)

I think your advice is spot on too, apart from a few by the end of last season there were a lot more WR than RB at the top of the scoring.

I'll always draft Rogers or Drew if they are available think that goes without saying the patriots QB was gold too last season.

Post by: Mat0369 on June 15, 2012, 11:56:33 PM
Stafford could be worthy of a first round pick this season as well (maybe pick 12 in a 12 team league). In my PPR league last season the top 5 fantasy players were QB's (4 points per TD -2 per INT). It is not the most QB friendly scoring system but the rankings were like this for the top 10

1. Brees 435
2. Rodgers 431
3. Brady 406
4. Newton 393
5. Stafford 383
6. Ray Rice 359
7. Calvin Johnson 350
8. Wes Welker 328
9. Eli Manning 325
10. Gronkowski 323

These include week 17 (most leagues don't run their playoffs in week 17 due to players being rested) so guys like McCoy who finished 11th and Rodgers who was rested played one less game fantasy wise.

I personally do not use the QB in the first strategy and try and steal depth at RB early but looking purely at the numbers it might be worth a punt this year.

I am looking at the NFL.com fantasy section player rankings right now. I might have to disagree with one of those RB's who I think won't produce this season like they did last year. I have a very good reason for it. Lets see if anyone can guess who it is

Your league will participate in a live online auction draft using ESPN's auction draft software. In an auction draft, teams begin with a set budget and take turns nominating players to be auctioned off to the highest bidder.

So it goes through the list of players and you bid on who you want, highest bid gets the player

Post by: BratPack on July 12, 2012, 12:46:39 PM
im a mile behind still in regards to any research, idk who is where or what so im out

I ran through a quick one yesterday just to get back in the swing of things.

I'll run through it. Along with my thoughts this early in the year

10 Team League I draft from #4. This is THE spot I want this year. It's the easiest to draft from I believe cause there's 3 "Sure Thing" RB's (Foster, McCoy and Ray "Brat Pack Hero" Rice) so if they go as expected you can switch strategys easy.

Round 1 (#4): Aaron Rodgers (QB)
In this case switch to one of the top 3 QB's (Rodgers, Brady, Brees in that order). In MOST leagues this year this is the way I want to start, there are tiers of the draft and those 3 give you an immediate advantage

Round 2 (#17) Darren McFadden (RB)
Guy with the least questions if he's healthy. I was pissed CJ got taken one pick before me but McFadden is a solid number one when he plays and no longer has to worry about Bush vuluturing carries from him. I like him more than Forte, who was next off the board.

Round 3 (#24) Jimmy Graham (TE)
Rule 2 for me this year: If at all possible get Graham or Gronk on my team. Didn't have a shot at Gronk. Graham was too good to pass up here. Wide Receiver is crazy deep this year so I'll wait....and wait.....and wait.

Round 4 (#37) Stephen Jackson (RB)
Case in point. Jackson is one of the more dependable number 2's with number 1 upside. Think this years version of MJD.

Round 5 (#44) Hakeem Nicks (WR)
See what I mean about Wide Receiver being deep?

Round 6 (#57) Doug Martin (RB)
Rookie in Tampa. Probably going to be the starter.

Round 7 (#64) Brandon Lloyd (WR)
Now has Brady feeding him. Could be a star. Could be Ochocinco 2.0

Round 8 (#77) Ben-Jarvus Green-Ellis (RB)
Gets new life with the Bungles. Should be solid enough

Round 9 (#84) Robert Griffin III (QB)
Don't need him, don't really want him, he's nothing but a bye week fill-in. HOWEVER if he's the second incarnation of Cam Newton from last year, I DON'T want him used against ME. A defensive pick more than a pick for need

Round 10 (#97) Mark Ingram (RB)
I think he takes the next step and gets more offence this year. In as much as a Saints Running Back CAN get offence

Round 11 (#104) Greg Little (WR)
He's one of my sleepers.

Round 12 (#117) Donald Brown (RB)
He isn't, but he'll get first crack at starting on a terrible Indy team, could get cheap points.

Round 13 (#124) Danny Amendola (WR)
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice. Yep I'm saddling up the "Amendola=Sleeper" horse again. I'd also have considered Coby Fleener, the Indy Tight End here if you could play a TE at FLEX, he was Luck's escape valve at Stanford and I think he might have a surprisingly good year.

Round 14 (#137) Seattle D/ST
Round 15 (#144) Nate Kaeding (K)

Bench: Percy Harvin

Bench: Michael Floyd
Bench: Bernard Scott

11-2 and champs or 2-11 and last....No middle ground with this team. Still I'll gladly take this team from the #7 slot

Okay so let's review. As I said I had the #7 pick.

Round 1 (#7) Drew Brees QB
Same strategy as the NFL draft, there's three gun RBs and if they're gone I want one of Rodgers, Brady or Brees. Now that Brees is getting paid I have no problem grabbing him

Round 2 (#14) Ryan Mathews RB
This is more of a "Hate went too far" pick than me wanting him, he's a middle of the second round guy (like here) to me but most sites have him as a end of the 1st round guy. It's not wrong, he just hasn't done it yet

Round 3 (#27) Trent Richardson RB
Jamaal Charles went one pick ahead of me  >:( So the options here were either the safety of S-Jax or the high risk high reward T-Rich. I decided to double down and swing for the fences.

Round 4 (#34) A.J Green WR
BEASTLY~! I really think his talent provided Dalton is at least competent means we could be mentioning him in the same breath as Megatron this year. Of course if Dalton ISN'T, then I've got a dud on Randy Moss 2010 levels.

Round 5 (#47) Julio Jones WR
DOUBLY BEASTLY~! I think Jones outdoes Roddy White this year and takes over the mantle of number 1 on Atlanta's pass happy offence

Round 6 (#54) Roy Helu RB
I can't say I'm enamoured with this pick, he's more the fact that he's the last guy I'd feel comfortable starting in a flex spot every week. Unless Shanahan screws him up.

Round 7 (#67) Percy Harvin WR
Could really be anything, but with me already this far in rolling the dice I thought I might as well go for mega upside.

Round 8 (#74) Doug Martin RB
Probably going to start in Tampa Bay. Again could be something, could be nothing. Going for gold

Round 9 (#87) Issac Redman RB
He'll have a chance to secure the job with Mendenhall probably starting the year on the PUP list. Still looking for max returns

Round 10 (#94) Robert Meachem WR
Rivers will get him the ball, I know that but again it's another risky pick

Round 11 (#107) Anquan Boldin WR
I don't think he'll be anything special. With all the risk I just needed a dependable 8-10pts a game WR I could fall back on if needed

Round 12 (#114) Coby Fleener TE
I said in the last draft. He was Luck's boy in Stanford and I think the same will happen in Indy. I think Fleener is a top 7 TE this year easy

Round 13 (#127) Michael Floyd WR
Probably going to be the guy alongside Larry Fitz since Larry loves him and talked Arizona into drafting him. That could work well

Round 14 (#134) Bernard Scott RB
It's a nothing pick. I'm already swapping him for Robert Turbin, the Seattle rookie who'll start if Beast Mode (Marshawn Lynch) gets suspended over his DUI.

Round 15 (#147) Giants D/ST
Round 16 (#154) Matt Prater K

Title: Re: NFL Fantasy 2012/13
Post by: Mat0369 on August 10, 2012, 12:37:11 PM
Which means 20 QB's will be starters. You then need back up QB's for byes. In 12 team leagues it can be difficult to find a decent starting QB with injuries. When someone has to start Kevin Kolb and Matt Moore in fantasy you know there team is in trouble. If you are starting a league with a lot of first time fantasy players, 2 QB leagues is not a good option. Same with an offline draft. Having the ability to see the rankings (although they aren't necessarily right) helps when you are starting out. It also helps when you can see what players are left. There are a few new guys, I would not try and over complicate things. QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, RB/WR flex (or just a 3rd WR), TE, D/ST, K, 6 Bench spots no IR and leave it at that is what I would recommend.

I also just had a look at the defensive scoring. You might want to lower the points for sacks because you might end up with a couple of defenses in the top 10 for scoring at the end of the season. I was in a league last year where the defensive scoring settings were ridiculous and there were 2 defenses in the top 10 for scoring which just is not right.

jukes and marcz are now out, which currently leaves us with 8 I think. Are you happy to go with 2 qbs if we only have 8? I will adjust the defence scores, any other changes?

I agree if we have a 12 team league starting 2 QBs is unreasonable. But atm we have 7 with Marcz and Jukes pulling out. If we go with 7 or 8 then i think that starting 2 QBs is ok. What do you think??

The idea behind 2xQBs is to make it a more even playing field. If we get 10 people in the league we can go back to one, but i thought that if we only have 8 then why cant we start 2 QBs??

Regarding the live draft, we can go with a live draft if we can all agree on a time to do the draft.

Like i said before, i am not making the decisions myself, everyone has input to how it is run.

Teams become pretty stacked in 8 team leagues so 2 QB's would add a degree of difficulty. 10 is a good number if we have a few new guys. If we are short on numbers I will find a couple of extras. You are not going to make everyone happy with the draft time, not everyone is going to be able to make it. That is why you have the option of pre-draft rankings. We can automate the draft using a website and manually insert what position people are drafting from in the snake format. This will give everyone an idea of where they are drafting from so if they can't make the draft they have a rough idea where they will pick from and can set their picks accordingly.

yeh thats fine but why cant we do that after starting the draft via a forum?? I am in another league and we start the draft via email as we have people in USA, Canada and Australia. If we do the first couple of rounds via a forum i can then load them in to their teams and then the automatic draft can continue

A live draft runs for 2 hours max, trying to get the rounds done in an offline mode via a message board could take days for 2 rounds. I think doing it offline would be way to time consuming. It is up to you though as the commish

i dont want it to be up to me though. Its everyones decision on which way we go. A live draft is fine if we can everyone there at the same time, if not i think we just might do an automatic draft.

I realise that manual drafts take a long time but we can put a 24hr limit on picks or picks can be sent in if they are going to be away for a while.

As league commissioner it is your final decision.You aren't going to make everyone happy and if they are really that unhappy they can just back out of the league. I would not do the draft fully automated however as it kills a bit of the fun. I find one of the most exciting aspects of Fantasy Football being the live draft. It would be good if we can get everyone there but if one or two can't make it, set your picks and trade like hell.

Live draft it is. That way people who can make it, can pick, other wise it will be as per your draft settings

Depending on how many people we get the rosters will be:

8 or Less people
QB, QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, WR/TE, TE, DST, K, 6 bench

10 or more people
QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, RB/WR/TE, TE, DST, K, 6 bench

I dont want to make it to easy for everyone but tell m,e what you think??

Regarding the def, each sack should have been 0.5 not 5

Any other changes??

Your Snake Draft is scheduled for Tue., Sep. 4 at 7:00 AM ET  Draft starts in less than:1day 03hrs 36mins

Also the scoring has been updated by Mat to ensure that there will be no draws (hopefully)
1 point for every 10 receiving/rushing yards and 1 point for every 25 passing yards have been removed and replaced with 0.1 point for every 1 receiving/rushing yard and 0.04 point for every passing yard.

The difference being that now if a player passes, receives or rushes for 9 yards then they get points

Pretty much correct. So if you have 55 yards receiving you get 5.5 points instead of the 5. I think it is a fair way to score as it is very frustrating if you have a RB finish on 99 yards rushing and only get 9 points. Now you will get the 9.9 and it should also help limit the possibility of a tie. I have left pretty much the rest of the scoring as it was set up by tabs.

We need one more player. I have found 3 to fill up the 4. One is a member on these boards (my mates brother) who does not post much. The other is my mate who is interested and one other player he is in a league with. I am going to send out a couple of PM's now to get a player, if anyone knows someone that is interested PM me their email and I will send the invite out.

I am with gwilliams. ESPN will pick a random order not long before the draft. I am in a league where the co commish drew the names out of a hat and posted the video on youtube so everyone could see the draft positions being picked. That was an interesting way of doing it and quite entertaining (even though I ended up with a terrible pick) but the random order on ESPN should be fine.


If we can get numbers up early next season I think we should announce the picks pre-draft using a website which will assign picks at random. That way we can actually trade draft picks with each other.

Title: Re: NFL Fantasy 2012/13
Post by: Mat0369 on September 04, 2012, 01:43:08 PM
I don't like Romo at all, but for where I got him in the draft, I am pretty happy. He was the best player available by a long way. I also made sure to take Big Ben for that reason (plus there was no one else worth drafting at that pick so I went BPA). I am very thin at RB but if the starters can stay healthy, I will probably take out the league. I have DMC's handcuff in Goodson who was good when he started in Carolina due to injuries. I have some trade bait at WR and QB. I have already been offered Brees and Shonn Greene for Romo and DMC. If I take the trade I get the upgrade in Brees and downgrade to Greene (who is less likely to get injured) but I am still one RB short. I have a trade in the works for one of Green-Ellis, David Wilson, Mendenhall or Blount. Those are the guys he  will most likely part with (maybe not the law firm) and he is interested in Holmes. There are always some guys on waivers in terms of RB's and WR's due to injuries every season. I have the number one spot on the waiver wire so I am hoping to swipe one of those guys early. Morris has had a very good preseason so if he can get some value early I might be able to offload him for something decent.

All the teams are set and we are ready to go. I was going to make a suggestion that instead of having waivers for this week and this week only all free agents should skip the waiver period. We are very close to the first game and just in case there is an injury to a starting player on the Giants/Cowboys teams it will allow people to cover those injuries.

You also have some bye coverage (can cover everyone currently with the players you have) and every time Newton throws a TD to Steve Smith it is double points. You also have some trade bait in guys like Lance Moore. Brees loves him and he gets a lot of receptions (useful in our league scoring set up).

tabs what do you think about releasing the guys currently on waivers for this week just so we can make changes before the first game? I think they are scheduled to release after a two day period meaning it would cross over and you wont be able to pick up backups for guys being injured in those games

Guys I just checked the waivers and remembered ESPN runs in US time. So the waivers will be cleared on Thursday 3 am US time which means it will be AFTER the Giants Cowboys game. It just means that the guys from those games will be locked out but all the other guys will be released prior to their games. Check in the morning and see if it is running in Australian time but I don't think that is the case.

Title: Re: NFL Fantasy 2012/13
Post by: Capper on September 06, 2012, 05:07:57 PM
just got asked about waivers

Waivers is a lot like the AFL draft in that after every week the team that is lowest on the ladder get first pick of any free players.
 
So after all games are finished for the round, all players not selected on rosters are on the waiver wire. All owners can go on to the waiver wire and make changes to their line-ups. But you are not guaranteed that player. The lowest team on the ladder gets there first waiver pick, then it moves up the ladder.
 
So in other words if you have a dud player, let’s say a WR, then you go onto waivers and select another player to replace him. Once you click on the "Claim" icon next to the new player, then it takes you to your roster for you to drop a player you no longer want. After you have submitted your roster and confirmed it, you will see on your roster page that you have a "Pending Move".
 
One thing that you might like to do is set players to come in if your number 1 was taken by someone else higher on waiver. So you can Claim another player on waivers and select the same player you want to drop and submit your roster. After that you will see on your roster page that you have 2 "Pending Moves", and you can change the preference of which one you want first.
 
You can "claim" as many people as you want on waivers, but be aware, after the waivers period is over, then all players on the waiver wire become free agents and its first in best dressed. If you change your mind regarding one of the waiver trades then you can cancel them on the roster page.
 
The photo below should show you what I am trying to explain(http://img405.imageshack.us/img405/3644/captureloec.jpg)

it is slightly different for the first week as waivers will end at 10pm tonight and all free players willl become first in best dressed

Post by: Mat0369 on September 06, 2012, 10:35:29 PM
Yeah I knew Witten would be no good this week but I thought I would start him anyway hoping he would catch a TD and a few cheap get out passes when the Giants played D. Oh well, he was a player I drafted for my future along with Mendenhall not the right now.

Nicks either puts up huge numbers or flops. He has never really been an in between guy. I am backing Forte (Ind), Megatron (Rams) and Shonn Greene (Billls) to put up some huge scores and get me back into it. Jordy Nelson was a beast second half of last season so he should be good for at least 50 yards and a TD (hopefully more) in a tough matchup.
Title: Re: NFL Fantasy 2012/13
Post by: Colliwobblers on September 06, 2012, 10:53:00 PM
yeah you got some firepower there, I'm not looking forward to matching up on you when they all fire.

Nelson is certainly still Rodgers favorite target so he could prove to be the pickup of the draft too.

A lot of the guys taken high in drafts this season are either injury prone, injured already, or very speculative projections on rooks breaking out.

Your team seems to have none of these guys.... so should be safe week in week out.
Title: Re: NFL Fantasy 2012/13
Post by: Mat0369 on September 06, 2012, 11:24:40 PM
I have had some strong drafts this season. Even my one autopick draft where it took a kicker for me early (actually drafted 2 kickers) my starting lineups have been strong. I am short on depth in a few positions (as always in 12 team leagues) but if I work waivers well I am set.

I just need to stay competitive in the autodraft league. It is with a bunch of guys in the USA on another message board. There were 4 leagues when I started and the top 3 go up with the bottom 3 being relegated. I have worked my way up to the top league going up each season. The autodraft has handicapped me and I just traded Romo and Tate for Rivers and Jacquizz Rodgers before Romo blew up. I keep Romo for this week but I think they will be pretty even for the season. He has Foster so I sent him a handcuff and I got Rodgers who should be useful in PPR and down the track. I just need to not finish bottom 3 (which should hopefully happen) my team for that league is (drafting from the 8 pick)

QB: Romo (Rivers from next week)
RB: McFadden
RB: Lynch
WR: Nelson
WR: Steve Smith (Car)
WR: Denarius Moore
TE: Gates
D/ST: 49'ers
K: Akers
Bench: Palmer
Tate (Rodgers from next week)
Collie
Tamme
Fleener
Mike Goodson (handcuff)

49'ers D was top 10 for scoring last season with our league settings and put up over 40 points some weeks. I personally would not have taken them that early or Palmer or Moore or Collie. I think Fleener could be a smokey this season with the Luck connection and the chemistry they share. If I can pick up a Cruz like I did last year that team could explode.

My other league I am focusing on ($10 huge trash talk league with some guys in the usa again), my team is pretty good for a 12 team league. Super thin at RB, but being PPR I have two great ones and some awesome WR's. I have been offered a trade and we are working out the kinks. My team is

QB: Romo
RB: Forte
RB: McFadden
WR: Jordy Nelson
WR: Colston
Flex: Boldin
TE: Finley
D/ST: Steelers
K: Bironas

Bench: Roethlisberger
Holmes
Burleson
Alfred Morris
Braylon Edwards
Coby Fleener
Mike Goodson (handcuff)

I stole Romo for the pick I got him. Even though I don't like him, he was good value for where I got him. Super thin at RB, need to find someone on waivers. I was offered this trade but was reluctant to take it due to not having any depth at RB. Brees and Shonn Greene for Romo and DMC. He wanted me to put Colston in and was going to send me Redman but I was not interested as I lose my depth at WR and end up with a guy who will lose all his touches to Mendenhall. I like the Brees and Greene trade as Brees is an obvious upgrade and Shonn Greene is THE GUY in NY in the backfield. They have no WR's (injuries and bad QB play) so they will lean on the run, new offensive coordinator in Sparano who loves the ground and pound offense. If my RB's stay healthy I could take out the league.

The guy that offered me the trade made a trade today for a RB. He gets Murray and Cruz and traded Welker, Witten and Redman. He got the RB he was after so he may not want to do the trade now. I don't know why the other guy accepted the trade.

No. But he can lateral or throw the ball backwards to another receiver, although if the QB laterals to the receiver (For example, pitching the ball to the Running Back) THEN he can throw provided he hasn't crossed the line of scrimmage.

There is something else called a flea flicker as well where the running back takes a handoff and throws it back to a QB who then throws the ball down field. Here is an example of it.

Once it passes the line of scrimmage they can 'lateral the pass as many times as they want. As long as the ball does not travel forward like rugby it is legal.

Do you mean that you check your email occasionally when you tell everyone at work that you are "working from home" :)

My boss told me that i can work from home once a fortnight/month but not on a reoccurring basis.

3 games on ONE HD.
Colts @ Bears from 3am
49ers @ Packers from 6am
Steelers @ Broncos from 10:15am

I hate you Michael Bush, sharking Fortes goal line touches. Nicks and the Steelers D also F'ed me up. Ryan Clark and Harrison being out did not help my cause and Manning played like 2009 Manning. I should have also started Fleener ahead of Witten this week knowing Witten was not going to play that well since he has not practiced.

I still like my team and I see them being more effective in the coming weeks

ok guys just found that i can assign trophies after every week and at the end of the season.

Do you guys have any ideas about what trophies we can offer???

I was thinking about the "Richmond Cup" for the winner of the bottom 4

The "GAJ Cup" for
-the highest scoring player on a losing team or
-for the highest scoring team that loses.

any other ideas??

Nice team. Couldn't work out how you got both Rodgers and Rice but checked the draft recap and saw that it's an auction.

I only did one auction this year, got Rodgers, Foster, G Jennings, R White, Maclin and Gates before I ran out of money. Got no 2nd RB but I've been starting Ben Tate (which worked out nicely this week). Lots of injury worries now!

Btw, our league is http://games.espn.go.com/ffl/leagueoffice?leagueId=51729&seasonId=2012 if you want to check it out
cheers mate! yeah i went with all auctions on espn, i find it a little more interesting and risky... i see ur off to a 2-0 start ;)

whats with Chris Johnson these days :o :-\ ::)

Week 2 Results
Gorilla Mask (1-1) lost to Victoria Vinco (1-1) 114.3-137.4
Keiraville Therapists (1-1) lost to Aussie Colliwobblers (2-0) 113.2-115.2
Big Ben Rapistberger (1-1) defeated Team Koopas Kickas (0-2) 118.6-95.3
Jerboa Rats (2-0) defeated Angry Pirates (0-2) 126-123.8
Death Star Bill (0-2) lost to Team JayP41 (2-0) 89.2-97.5

Wouldv beaten anyone last week! Happy with the boys for out second match!!  :P

This weeks predicting a huge scoring clash between Viv Vinco (146) & Angry Pirates (121)

Hopefully all goes to plan ...  For me.. 8)

Jerboa vs Keiraville is projecting a 3pt ball game, could see match of the round

Anyone play Madden at all? I have it on 360 and wanted to do an online franchise with a bunch of people. I have done it in the past but with the time difference it was hard to schedule games with the guys in the US.

Also for anyone that plays Ultimate team there is a coin glitch going on and people outside the US are not receiving the right amount of coins at the end of games. It is annoying as hell and I can't play any ultimate team games because I am going to be out of contracts soon and can't afford packs due to the glitch.

Post by: Mat0369 on October 07, 2012, 10:45:03 PM
I just got offered a trade in one of my other leagues. I am hesitant to take either of them

Trade 1: Shonn Greene and Wes Welker for Marshawn Lynch

Trade 2: Andre Johnson, Wes Welker, Brian Hartline, Steven Jackson, Shonn Greene for Jordy Nelson, Steve Smith (CAR), McFadden, Lynch

My team

QB: Rivers
RB: Lynch
RB: McFadden
WR: Nelson
WR: Smith
WR: Denarius Moore
TE: Gates
D/ST: 49ers
K: Akers

Bench: Palmer
Andre Roberts
Jacquizz Rodgers
Tamme
McCluster
Goodson (handcuff for McFadden)

His

QB: Rodgers
RB: Jackson
RB: Greene
WR: Andre Johnson
WR: Welker
WR: Harvin
TE: Heath Miller
D/ST: Baltimore
K: Gostkowski

Bench: Shaun Draughn
Rashad Jennings
Andy Dalton
Brian Hartline
Daryl Richardson
Sid Rice

He initially offered me Hartline instead of Welker. I think I am getting screwed in both trades. It is a .5 ppr league so Welkers value is a bit higher then normal but I would be getting the rough end with a bunch of injury prone players. I am thinking of countering him something like Rodgers, Welker, Greene for Rivers, Lynch and Denarius Moore since he is desperate and still trying to screw me.

What do you guys think? Should I take the offer or should I offer my counter and see if he bites?
Title: Re: ESPN - NFL Fantasy 2012/13
Post by: Capper on October 07, 2012, 11:55:10 PM
wow, really trying to screw you.

The trades dont match up though

Trade1
2 for 1

Trade2
5 for 4
Title: Re: ESPN - NFL Fantasy 2012/13
Post by: Mat0369 on October 08, 2012, 01:08:20 AM
Which means I also have to drop a player if those trades process through.

Shonn Greene has been absolute junk and could lose his starting job. He is trying to convince me otherwise but with the situation in New York I don't want to be trading for any Jets. Andre Johnson and Jackson are both injury prone (although if Johnson stays healthy he will be a beast). A WR corps of Nelson, Welker and Steve Smith would be nice, but not at the expense of losing a quality starting RB when there are not that many. I think I am going to ask for Rodgers after all the games have finished.
Title: Re: ESPN - NFL Fantasy 2012/13

Title: Re: ESPN - NFL Fantasy 2012/13
Post by: Mat0369 on October 13, 2012, 12:23:27 AM
What do you do with Jennings??

Depends where you are positioned in terms of playoffs. If you are desperate you might have to trade, if you can wait it out, that is what you have to do. Same thing with Nicks owners. If you have both in the same team, you are screwed. They have both lost about all their value so if you trade them you won't get much in return.  I have my eye on a couple of Browns receivers at the moment (that is not exactly the smartest move) who could be some good bench coverage. Jordan Norwood is one guy but he injured himself (9 targets, 9 receptions), Josh Gordon the other (supplemental draft, 2 receptions for 2 TD's). Stokley could be another smokey. Peyton has chemistry with him from his Colts days. He has caught a few TD's the last couple of weeks. Jordy Nelson and Finley are bigger disappointments then Jennings though. At least Jennings has been injured. The other two can't get anywhere near their production from last season.

Got hit hard by injuries as well.

In thie league i have Holmes and Amendola out and Finley maybe playing whilst Colston has the bye this week.

In my 2QB league i have i also have Holmes and Amendola out and Finley maybe playing whilst Spoles hass the bye. Gates is my back up TE who hasnt done anything decent this year yet.

I got lucky in the NFL.com league with having Gronkowski (injured) and Gonzalez (No 1) but also have Amendola out whilst Lynch, Austin and Jennings have been limited in practice of late

Finley should play this week but I don't expect him to do anything. I drafted Holmes in one of my leagues and cut him as soon as he got injured. I ended up with Gates in the one league where I had to auto draft because of work. He looks to be cooked. Lynch will play and Austin should as well (he is in my never again pile)

finley has to score big against the texans if he plays....

I can't see it happening. Texans have allowed 201 yards to TE's all season. Their D has been dominant all season. They have allowed 73 points (4th in the league), 3rd in yards allowed per game and 3rd in passing yards allowed per game. All the TD's that the TE's have caught have actually been the back up TE's apart from Cumberland who was starting on the day with Keller out. He has to score a TD to be effective on the day but I don't think he will have a huge game.

ok peeps.

Just wondering what you thought about this.

As we dont have a name for the trophy of the comp this year and what i propose is that the trophy is named after the winner of the comp this season

From there we can go 2 ways:
1. name the trophy after who ever wins it that season (So if Mons wins it, its the Mons trophy this year and if CW wins it next season it becomes the CW trophy)
2. the trophy name changes to the new winner the season after. (So if Mons wins it, its the Mons trophy this season and next and if CW wins the Mons trophy then it becomes the CW trophy the next year)

I was thinking about doing the same for the last place

I need a bit of advice on who to start.

I am tossing up between Big Ben and Romo.


Quote
Cincinnati has now gone a full month without allowing an opposing quarterback to top 250 passing yards, so this is not a cakewalk for Big Ben. Plus, after throwing eight touchdown passes in his first three games, he's only thrown two TDs in the last two contests.

Romo is coming up against a bad Carolina D with no Murray so they will probably throw the ball a lot. Romo is TO prone which is a bit of a worry.

Who would you start?

I am having to start Fleener because Graham is out injured so this decision could be the one that either wins it or loses it for me.

So the play offs begin

The top of each conference gets the bye, so CW and Trion can breath a bit more easily. Well done to the East Conference for having 4 of the top 6 in the finals.

The play off for the bottom 4 will see Angry Pirates play Victoria Vinco, whilst Team JayP41 will take on Death Star Bill.

Still in the hunt for the main prize, Big Ben Rapistbergerwill travel to the Jerboa Rats, whilst Team Koopas Kickas will play the Keiraville Therapists.

ROUND 1 - PLAYOFFS
AWAY TEAM   OWNER(S)       HOME TEAM   OWNER(S)   RESULT
Big Ben Rapistberger (7-6) at Jerboa Rats (8-5)
Team Koopas Kickas (6-7) at Keiraville Therapists (9-4)
Angry Pirates (5-8) at Victoria Vinco (5-8)
Team JayP41 (4-9) at Death Star Bill (4-9)

Byes: Aussie Colliwobblers, Gorilla Mask

May the best team win, i'm sure i will  8)

I already complained about this in the SC section but I am going to complain about it in here as well.

I went to create my draft league today and the way they have made it is terrible. We are short on numbers and were thinking of doing an 8 man league, when I looked at the finals settings, they are not adjustable. You have to play an 8 man finals series which is just ridiculous. If you have only 8 teams it should be a 4 man finals series. Actually even in a 10 it should only be a 6 man finals series. So it is only worth doing a league with 12 players based on the finals system. No completely adjustable rosters based on the size of the league (yes they give you a couple of options but for 'larger' leagues, they should still allow full customization). I want a 3-5-2-3-5 option for 12 people but it is not possible. Then add the fact you can only join one league. Whoever designed this has no idea. I am guessing the DT is exactly the same. They should really go take a look at the NFL model because this is just ridiculous.
