IAmRight: Treygreen13: I think if you really wanted to test yourself you'd be in a 16 or 32-team league, rather than trying to assemble a ludicrous roster.That's even less of a test and more based on blind luck or whoever happens to get to the right spot in the waiver wire (or to the FA pool the fastest). The more you dilute the talent, the more the one lucky day is going to affect everything. In a deep league, getting lucky with, say, the Seahawks D doesn't guarantee a victory the same way it would in a shallow league.
Treygreen13: You could offset that by making it a dynasty league.
prickly pete v2: Hyjamon: lunchinlewis: EyeballKid: Thank you, Bengals defense, for likely winning my fantasy playoff this weekend for me.Serious. I picked them up just yesterday morning. Fantasy GENIUS!make that three. I picked up cincy and detriot (stock defense is denver, but I don't trust them against Baltimore). Did research for about an hour and chose Cincy. It appears I chose wisely (was doubting my choice when it was 13-10). Funny part was I picked cincy due to the number of sacks they had for the seasons vs. the number philly has allowed, and all the other defense categories were the ones that paid off. My opponent had bryce brown and ben-jarvis green, felt sorry for him (no I didn't, this is playoffs dammit)/Now watch Detroit put up 40+ fantasy points like seattle did last week.For the third time in four weeks, my defense this week will be the team playing Arizona. So far I am 2 for 2 with this strategy, getting good days from the Rams and Seahawks.
IAmRight: Treygreen13: That's still 6 too many people playing an absurd game.I dunno, I'm semi-intrigued by it. I mean, it's a lot of blind luck anyway, so it really should just even out the points on aggregate, as some guys will have good weeks and some will have bad.But man would it look amazing when all the good weeks happen to one guy's team and his opponent has a terrible week.
IAmRight: Treygreen13: You could offset that by making it a dynasty league.I think the best one was salary cap football on Yahoo!. Basically players were like stocks - you could have $100 to bid on anyone, and then if they appreciated in value, you could trade 'em in for whoever else. Everyone could have the same players if they wanted, so there's no getting f*cked by the draft order, there's no "oh, this one owner doesn't do trades," there's no waiver wire, it's just pure picking guys and amassing value. The best part is that it's obviously not head-to-head; you just increase the value of your team all year so it really doesn't matter how many teams you have - you're not limited by anything.But then, if you like bragging or fleecing people in trades (I personally don't really like talking smack about anything I do), then it's not quite as fun for you. If you like being able to get the team you want and being in control of your own team instead of the whims of others, it's way more awesome./only did it in '07//by the end of the year, had Brady, Moss, AP, and just pretty much every beast you could imagine
