And that’s it for our sign ups. JW12 grabbed our last spot. 

Thinking of setting the draft for League A on 8/8 at around 6:00PM ET can everyone from League A’s roster be available at this time?

 

Im available on the 8th but I think it’s way too early. Rosters haven’t even been set yet for the teams. 

 

Regarfless, I think we need to discuss a few rules such as partial points, PPR, return points, roster size (the smaller the better, otherwise people tend to sit on good players and they go to waste).

My preferences:

1. Partial points should be allowed

2. Extended trade deadlines to encourage movement

3. Smaller bench size, maybe 4 bench players to discourage “hogging”

4. Waiver rules applied, else we’ll be stuck to the fantasy app the entire Sunday instead of actually enjoying it

5. Trades should be monitored and approved by the commish to catch “illegal one sided trades” 

6. I like return yardage at 25 yards a point, same as passing. Also have bonus points for passing rushing and receiving.

Doesn’t look like it, but we are thinking of running 2 leagues of 10 teams this year and since there have been so many more posters who want to join we could actually either up the team count to 12 each or just make a third league. 

I’m in favor of either.

12 is better. Top 8 going to playoffs. Keeps the lower seeded teams continue to be active in later part of the season. 

And if we still get more players, I can volunteer to pick one league as a commish. Maybe we can tweak the rules a little in all leagues? Say shorter bench space in one, noneaiver rules in one etc?

My humble opinion - but overall good with whatever if everyone else disagrees

Decimal system is best - ties suck

12 man so much better

Trade deadline should just be like Nov 22 or around there, and I like the league vote. Usually everyone just has gentlemen bet not to throw a Bs trade out there, but if you do no biggie league veto it. Also with trade deadline can't effect playoffs etc

I like bigger bench of like 6, make it so you can go to waiver and get some help if you need it but also forces you to draft a decent team.

I like bonus points for big plays like 40 yd catch gets an extra point, 400 yard passing game gets extra point, big plays are rewarded.

Don't like ppr for same reason, someone like edleman could catch 10 balls for 45 yards and do jack sh*t for the game but eat Brady dink and dunk and have more poitns that a RB like crowell who ran for 130 yards...never understood PPR.

 

Anyway just a few thoughts but like I said Im good with whatever the commission decides, FF is fun.

 

Also QB TD 6 point haha

 

To each their own I suppose. 10 catches for 45 yards is better than one catch for 45 yards imo. 10 catches mean you’re moving the chains. Plus, as a receiver, catching the ball is your primary responsibility. Having said that, I don’t advocate for a full point on a catch. Maybe 0.5. In your example, JE would get 11 points. Crow would have 13 points plus any RB receiving points (another 2-3 points atleast). Fair to me but like I mentioned, we can have two leagues with slightly tweaked rules. 

I agree with 6 points a passing TD. But this also tends to put too much emphasis on a QB while kickers become irrelevant in the standard point system.

Let me know if you guys can roll with this.

Passing:

Passing TD’s : 5 points

Interceptions: -1 points

Passing yards: 25 yards = 1 point

Pick Six: -2 points

40+ yard completions: 3 points

40 + yard touchdowns: 6 points

Rushing:

Rushing TD’s: 6 points

Rushing Yards: 10 yards = 1 point

40 + yard run: 4 points 

40 + yard rushing TD: 7 points

Rushing 1st down: 0.5 points 

Receiving:

Receiving TD: 6 points

Receptions: 0.5 points

Receiving yards: 10 yards = 1 point

40+ yard receptions: 4 points

40 + yard touchdowns: 8 points

Kickoff Returns:

25 yards = 1 point

Return TD’s: 6 points

2 point conversions: 2 points

Fumbles: -1 points

Fumbles lost: -2 points

Offensive Fumble Return for TD: 6 points

 

@jetstream23 @King P @j4jets @joewilly12

@Dcat

 

 

 

Bonus points a extremely high imo. A 40 yard TD pass would give a QB almost 16 points. That’s way too high IMO. 

Bonus points should be just 1 point for each category you pointed out. It’s just a bonus point. The entire game shouldn’t depend on couple of big plays by a QB while that same QB lays an egg in the rest of the game. Same for recovering and rushing. All of these should be 1 point each. 

However, I’d like to see 2 bonus points for reaching 100 yards and then another 3 points for reaching 200 yards in receiving and rushing. Passing should give out 2 points for 300 yards, 3 for 400 yards and 4 for 500 yards. Those are real milestones as opposed to isolated big completions/rushes/catches. 

Also, are we going to have a kicker? If so, the extra point try should be 3 points, 30 yard kick 3 points, 40 yard 4 points and 50 yard 5 points. Missing a kick below 40 or extra point should result in a negative point. Standard format makes the kickers rather irrelevant with very minimal points.

I’ve never done Yahoo before, so if @joewilly12 says it’s random, i assume it is. Everything is all kinda new to me but I did fool with it for a minute yesterday. Made a quick “dummy league” to delete afterwards and it has a link to send out invites with..which is a lot more convenient than sending emails. 

I know a ton of people I do fantasy football with don’t even check emails lol.

Draft order can be one of two. Auto or manual. 

Manual is more fun requires trust. I don’t care either way. But in my usual league, the commish draws names out of the hat and posts it. Sounds more fun. 

The auto will be random and given to you 30 minutes prior to the start time.

shucks.  Well if @Patriot Killa can't find a separate commish for the 2nd league, I guess I can do it.  But I am already commsh of 3 keeper leagues I run and would greatly prefer someone else step up.

I got you covered. Killa can do one league. I’ll do league B. And if we need a third league, which I’m sure posters would love to join, we can start a league C later on.

that's awesome!  We just have to make sure that both leagues have the same exact settings and scoring.  The only difference should be the draft date and 12 teams participating.

We'd also have to decide on whether we let it go into week 17.  I'd prefer not.  Let the 2 12-team leagues get their championships done on week 16.  Then, in week 17, the 2 winners from each league can set their rosters on the board here (because Yahoo doesn't allow a Championship merge between 2 different leagues) and they can have a head-to-head show down that we hand score.  

THere are other host sites that allow a Championship game to merge from a pair of champions in different leagues.  I play in one, but it's a pay site, not free.

I like the idea

Haven’t finalized it but I think Saturday the 25th is something that works best for most. @j4jets will probably do his the next day. 

Not sure on times. Thinking 6PM ET so anyone working weekends has time to come home and get settled before they draft.

J4jets when do you want to do League B? Also if you could, when you create the league send me the specifics on the league rules, bonus points, etc and i’ll apply it to League A.

Will do. I’ll be on a vacation until the evening of 25th. So I can do it on the 26th. Maybe like 4pmEST (3pm cst). Maybe we can have people pick their dates for the draft and assemble the league rosters accordingly.

Here are the details as it stands. I like bonus points on big plays. It’s a way to reward a big play. Same for a big day (100 years rushing/receiving or 300 passing etc). Changed the waiver rules to weekly.

I left my laptop at work and had to travel to Mexico this week.  I did not get into A, please send me an invite for B.  Thanks!

@Patriot Killa  @j4jets

Funny, I was in Mexico myself. Los Cabos. Just landed. Will be sending out invites in a few hours and not sure who’s in and who’s not. But draft date has been set for tomorrow.
