Lost interest in Fantasy league when my QB went down, and the backup was snagged off waivers by another member of my league.  he went on to win, and I shouldn't have even bothered to continue managing.

Rather have a fantasy league based on position on a team, then a player.

Hmm, so the collective weight of everyone checking their FF teams two hours a week results in a 15B loss in productivity?

How much is lost by executive "retreats" or "conferences" every year?

I'm willing to bet the total monetary waste of board members all voting themselves raises far exceeds the total waste of employees checking some websites in their downtime.

What the fark IS fantasy football?  Is that like AD&D for sports?  Are there at least dice involved?

I first played fantasy football in 1987.  We drafted every position including a punter and an offensive line.   We had no idea what we were doing, there was no add/drop option.   But it was a money league and it was fun.  Monday morning reading the sports page and just hoping that your Monday night player could score four points.   Don't get me wrong, I still play, but kids today don't know what it was like actually having to draft a player and calculating the score by themselves.  And yes, this was done on office time.

No, it's your fantasy football team's fault there are going to be cut backs and lay offs.

Total yardage? Bonus points for balls downed inside the ten or negative points for touchbacks?

Cheesehead_Dave: Total yardage? Bonus points for balls downed inside the ten or negative points for touchbacks?


I said we didn't know what we were doing - but it had to be something that showed-up on the stats - So net yards Which really mean't that you were drafting a special team.  I think Ray Guy could explain it better.   So to make the story even better, we were all either accountants or IT geeks.  So anything with stats got us  going.

There is nothing worse than watching a game with someone in Fantasy Football.  They're always on their phone or wanting to switch to "The Red Zone".  Why'd you come over / invite me over to watch the game if you're going to be involved in activities other than the thing related to the invitation?  farking douchebags.

I get your frustration with your friend burying his nose in his phone or tablet the entire time, but "The Red Zone" makes football games infinitely more watchable.  No commercial breaks, no time-outs.  No commercial mandated stoppage in play.  Just none-stop football action for hours at a time.  If my team is not playing, I am normally sitting on the redzone channel the entire day.

This is why I try not to have any Cowboys or Eagles players on my roster (Redskins fan).  About the only exception is LeSean McCoy, I'd have him on my team if I got the option to do so but that's because he gets points consistently.


Also, to the point of this article, I'm now at my highest FFB team ever...this year I'm on 5 teams (although I'm sure 2 are going to be duds because there are only 6 teams in it and usually 2-3 of those people stop participating after 2 weeks so...

So because of the increase of my FFB teams, there may be layoffs somewhere because I'm costing billions of $$ wasted....sorry all. :(

Well, as a Cowboys fan, I'll give you RG3 and I'll take Tony Romo, and we can both suffer the consequences, but I'm with you, if you have a chance to draft McCoy, you take it.

It'll be interesting to see how well RG3 does this year.  I had him, I think, the first year he was with the 'Skins and did reasonably well (point wise) and in some games, got close (or at/over) 30 points (mainly thanks to those rushing TDs).  Tony Romo is actually one of the better fantasy QBs because he is usually good for 20 points a week but then you'll have those down weeks (like almost every QB has) where he just throws to the opposing team more than his team (waves to Eli Manning).

If the o-line can give RG3 time to throw (good luck eh?!), I think RG3 can be a good to great QB...if the o-line decides it just wants to be a revolving door like they did last year...well...I'll stick with Aaron Rodgers or someone else in my FFB leagues...
 
2014-08-14 09:40:17 AM  
Also as another side note.  I went to one of the Pats/Skins training camp practices and it was interesting watching the scrimmages and the comments from some of the other people there (obviously mostly Skins fans).

They were criticizing RG3 for holding on to the ball too long and that "Tom Brady doesn't do that."  Then I would see TB hold the ball for too long on 1-2 plays (not consecutively mind you) but never heard them comment about it.

I do think RG3 holds on to the ball for too long but that could be a myriad of reasons.  Is he just "too slow" to read the defenses?  Is it because the defense really is better than our WRs?  Is it some lingering fear about injury to himself because the o-line has a tendency to stink up the place?  Did he just fart?  All or a mix of the above?

I see RG3, somewhat similar to Ben Roth.  As a #2 Steelers fan, I will watch Steelers games and, of course, the criticism for him is that he holds on to the ball way too long and tries to make a play out of every down.  70-80% of the time it works out good-to-great for Ben and the Steelers...then you have those 20-30% of the time where he made it worse.

Would love to have a TARDIS to go into the future to see what happens if the Redskins stay with RG3, then travel to another universe where the Redskins traded RG3 right now and went with Kirk Cousins as their starting QB and see what that led them to.

It pains me to say this, but I think that RG3 has the right skills and team around him.   The best thing for the team was getting rid of Shanahan    Also stealing Jackson from  the Eagles is a good addition and subtraction from the Eagles.  I still hate the Redskins.

I don't mind Red Zone either if that is what we're watching but it pisses the shiat out of me when I am trying to watch a game and we switch away to Red Zone in the middle of a possession because something scrolled along the bottom of the screen.

This is why the pay league I am in went to a slew of weekly and season payouts that do not require you to win. I believe we set it so that if you won every non-championship payout, it would equal what the champ gets.

I also have a confidence pool that we are adding weekly winners for too. It sucks knowing by week 8 that I am too good for someone else to win...well for them.

I love the facial expression people make when I tell them I draft Romo. They can be nice, reasonable, knowledgable in sports, but none of that matters. Instant disgust.

riverwalk barfly: Also stealing Jackson from the Eagles is a good addition and subtraction from the Eagles.


Things I've learned:

If a team is willing to trade a guy, they think they can find better value elsewhere. If a team is willing to trade a guy in the division, they're also not afraid of him.

If a team is willing to cut a guy, they feel he's no longer able to produce. If a team is willing to cut a guy and let him sign elsewhere in the division, the team that's signing him isn't getting the player they're expecting.

In previous years, I've had a "no Packers" rule. Vikings and Lions were fine, because they weren't about to make the playoffs, were they? This year I'm throwing out that rule; I'll just hope that when Rodgers hits Jordy for a TD that it doesn't lead to a (w), and that it's not against the Bears.

Owens performed pretty well in Dallas after leaving Philly. Maybe Philly just doesn't like good WRs, given their franchise's history.

No, but it just seems that when a team cuts a guy with a name, it's a divisional foe that signs him, McNabb's already been mentioned, but there's also James Harrison, the Bengal.

The only guys I can think of who jumped straight to a division rival and were worth a damn were traded. Irving Fryar was pretty good in Miami, and Marcus Allen was a badass Chief.

I ran my pool by spreadsheet when there were 5 of us. The year we went to 8, I found a website to do it for me.

My wife and I used to go through each Sunday morning and add the picks to the master sheet, and then calculate the scores on Tuesday night. It was a nice time to relax, spend together, and talk shiat about each others' picks. Now we have a daughter who never let's us relax, never let's us have time together, and shiats on everything. So I use the website, stick to a system for the most part, and now we share an entry so there is no shiat talking.

Never draft your favorite team's rival's players. Simply not worth it. Then again, that's easy for me because I'm a Packers fan and Megatron and Forte are the only sacrifices.

I record an early game, an afternoon game, and the evening game on Sunday.  I do chores and avoid the TV/internet for a few hours after the early game starts, then hit play on the PVR.  Fast-forward commercials, injuries, and halftime ... the games are very watchable.  If I time it right I'll hit "live" in the fourth quarter of the afternoon game.

Night games, I'll PVR and start to watch 90 minutes after kickoff.  It works great.  HD PVRs are a blessing for sports fans.

Yeah, my not-so-cool-story-bro moment...

Last year in one of the leagues I was in (was in 3 last year), they changed the rules and I remember voting "ok" on the changes.  Anyways, come to draft time and I think I was like 2nd or 3rd in the first round to pick.  Adrian Peterson goes first and, I think, a top tier QB goes 2nd.  I am somewhat puzzled why that person chose a QB so early but whatever, so I choose a RB (Alfred Morris I think, which actually turned out great for me).  The next 4-5 picks are all QBs.  Now I'm really puzzled, while waiting for my 2nd pick, I go look at the scoring rules.  *facepalm*  Ooooh, we can have 2 starting QBs and passing TDs count for more points than 4 (I think it was either 5 or 6 per TD; and INTs only did -1).

Oops...by the time my next pick gets there, I of course go for a QB.  I still got good/decent QBs but, yeah...didn't win that league that year lol.  Helps to double check scoring rules! haha

Ooh, I'd like to join that but I'm already in 5 leagues and with the scoring rules, I'd actually have to think and plan who I'd want to draft.  Good luck and maybe I'll do it next year!

A co-worker always talks about doing some very custom rules (more extensive than what that is) but the type of custom rules he wants, no site can do it (from what he gathers; I never really looked too hard into it).

Ooh, I'd like to join that but I'm already in 5 leagues and with the scoring rules, I'd actually have to think and plan who I'd want to draft.  Good luck and maybe I'll do it next year!

A co-worker always talks about doing some very custom rules (more extensive than what that is) but the type of custom rules he wants, no site can do it (from what he gathers; I never really looked too hard into it).


I'd love if they could figure out a fair way to do offensive linemen. I had one league that the guy set up where you drafted a full defense (2DT,2DE,3LB, 2Safeties,2corners) two TE, RB, 3 WR, and a WR/RB so you had everything but the line. It's been scaled back since then but that was a wild draft with 16 teams.

TheManofPA: smd31: TheManofPA: 2 teams left available in Drew's Fantasy Talents Year 3. This is the beast 20-team league on Yahoo. Individual Defense and a decent amount on the O side for picks along with a custom scoring setup: Link

Nice....

Yeah, that would be very interesting to see how it unfolds.  One of the main things I don't care for in most 'normal' FFB leagues is the bench.  Inevitably I have the person who scores the most points on the bench (yes it happens to others too) which is, obviously, frustrating.

One time I was in a league and there was only 1 bench spot (just to help move people around and keep that one person that you wanted to keep while on the BYE).  Very strange scoring (each week the average was around 100-300 points with the highest I remember being was like 700 points heh)...it was all with real life friends so we were doing a, "just give us points" and we had max players for each position (2 or 3 QBs, 4 RBs, even 1 IDP etc..).

roc6783: You're a Sox fan, right? Just making sure you aren't completely unhinged.


Haha; yes, I'm White Sox fan. It's difficult at times, but then I look to the north.

roc6783: Good times, and good luck.

My oldest (now 5) puked on me seven times in one night when she was a baby, despite the fact that I was holding her over the bath tub for the last two. There's no way those were accidental. I've avoided poop explosions though.

It just dawned on me that when you said she shiats on everything, that you may have meant literally. I thought you were saying earlier that she puts everything down or is negative about everything. I'm pretty sure my daughters are past the 'poop on all the things' age, but it won't be long until they're to the 'everything you do is stupid' age.
