Fantasy Football 2016

Postby Darkfoxx » Tue Jul 26, 2016 10:39 am

It's that time of year again gents! Invites have been sent to everyone who played last year.

Good luck everyone! :thumbsup: :drink:

The buy-in from last year was a great success and is being repeated this year. We're using PayPal again this season to handle funds because Yahoo's Cash League is a piece of fucking shit. $20 will be needed from each manager. The payment deadline is Wednesday, August 31st. To pay, simply PayPal me $20: justin_maciak@yahoo.com

List of who has paid (manually updated): http://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com ... 4/finances

Draft is Wednesday, September 7 @ 9:00 pm EDT.

You have until Wednesday August 31st 3:00am EDT to select your keeper. Please do it before then to avoid issues. People who select after the deadline will be ridiculed and laughed at...and more importantly, their keeper will be assigned by me. I'll show no mercy.

Keeper guidelines:
What round was the player drafted in? Was he a keeper last year?
If you can answer "4th round or later" and "no" to these two questions, then that player is eligible. Simple as that. Ask if you have questions!

You can choose a player on your team that was undrafted. If you have a player on your team that was drafted by another team and then dropped, they must be from the 4th round or later.

If you still don't know who you can choose, ask me and I'll give you a list.

Set keeper in My Team > Choose Keepers.

Previous year's draft info (use to determine keeper):
Final roster: http://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com ... lastseason
Draft results: http://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com ... aftresults

Players drafted in Round 14 are not eligible, as they were keepers last year.

Invites sent to:
Cum Hose (Scott) somnambul33tor@gmail.com
DBol 4 Breakfast (Evan) kruzer63090@aol.com
Hernandez for Prez (Reid) reid.edwards@gmail.com
RGC (Zack) zacksills@aol.com
Slack Jawed Yokels (Sean) jumjamapop@comcast.net
the ball breakers (Matt) mkeenan8411@yahoo.com
TheRapists (Mac) abreviu@gmail.com
Very inTimidating (Tim) cinos256@yahoo.com
Space Dinos (Andrew) spazsquirrle@gmail.com

Prize Distribution:
Prizes will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place players. Prize money will be dispersed via Yahoo.

1st = $120
2nd = $60
3rd = $20

This year's changes:
  • Sunday - Tuesday waiver system has been activated: 1 PM EST Sunday - 2:59 AM EST Wednesday
  • DST KR/PR TD (Defense/Special Teams Kick/Punt Return Touchdown) value has changed from 3 to 6 this season.
  • League rule change: Using a blank roster at any time - this year there will be a clear rule about this. You must play til the end (regular season and playoffs, championship and consolation). If any team is using a blank roster at any point this season, you will be disqualified from winning any prizes and banned from the league next season. You've been warned.
  • One (1) Injured Reserve slot has been added to each roster. (see instructions)
  • Yardage bonuses are staying, however, I have modified bonuses to reflect averages from the 2015 season:

Passing
Passing Yards bonus
250 = 1 point
300 = 2 points
400 = 4 points

Rushing
Rushing Yards bonus
75 = 1 points
150 = 2 points
200 = 4 points

Receiving
Reception Yards bonus
100 = 1 points
150 = 2 points
200 = 4 points

Defense
Defense/Special Teams Kick/Punt Return Touchdown = 6 points

Commish Notes/Poll Questions:
- Change draft to the Friday before the season starts?
- Change waiting time of trades
- Change flex slot
- Draft pick trades
- Bonuses, do we want them? Different points per yard instead?
- Change trade deadline
- Extra Point Returned 2 to 6? Why is it 2?
- Remove roster lock for consolation teams?
- Punishment for starting out/inactive/bye players
- Determining draft order, final regular season or final post season? OR use consolation winner as 1st
- Points for 1st downs?
- Pick sixes thrown for QBs?

I'm taking suggestions for our league logo. Must be a square over 192x192px. I just threw some Grumby Gruel in place for now.

PayPal: justin_maciak@yahoo.com

If you need Venmo, contact me.

You can see who has paid by checking here: http://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com ... 4/finances

Thank you everyone for getting your dues paid before the deadline. Don't forget to choose your keeper before tonight (Wednesday Aug 30th at 3am EDT)! Managers that don't choose a keeper will be haphazardly assigned one by me. You wouldn't want that, would you?

Also please remember that the draft is Wednesday September 7th at 9:00pm EDT.

Alright fellas, I know there are some questions about the newly-added IR slot. I went through the process myself and took screenshots because Yahoo doesn't make it apparent how to do so.

An IR player is designated as IR, PUP or O.

1. You must have an empty bench slot before adding an IR player. Yes, this is dumb.
2. Once you have an empty bench slot, add the IR player.
3. Click the blue "BN" next to the IR player's name on your team.
4. The IR slot will now show up and you can select it, which will move the IR player to the IR slot.
5. Once that players has been returned to active status, you will need to make a decision if you want to roster them or drop them, as you won't be able to complete any other transactions.

I wouldn't mind this. Anything like a week before or the end of the week before the season starts is fine with me.

- Change waiting time of trades


If we aren't gonna allow the comish to force trades through then I think 2 days. 3 days makes it hard to trade for players to play that week.

- Change flex slot


IMO make it at least a WR/RB/TE slot. The arguments against this have been lacking this season.

- Bonuses, do we want them? Different points per yard instead?


This is pretty big. I've looked through a couple players and games on my roster and have found 2 games that were decided by extra points and 11 times where one of my players (RBs) had more yardage between their rushing and receptions than another player with less yards in only rushing or receiving but the "purist" player scored more points because of the bonus.

Example:
RB A - 54 rushing yards, 26 receiving yards - 4 points
RB B - 75 rushing yards - 4.75 points

RB 1 - 64 rushing yards, 46 receiving yards - 5.5 points
WR 1 - 100 receiving yards - 6 points

It doesn't make sense that we give less points to players that get more yards.

- Change trade deadline


Push it back a week or so I'd say

- Extra Point Returned 2 to 6? Why is it 2?


Isn't it only 2 because that's what it's worth in the real game?

- Remove roster rock for consolation teams?


Maybe have the rosters unlocked but give waiver priority to those still in contention? Free agents are fair game.

My thoughts on some of them. Let's get some feedback/thoughts/etc

I'll be creating the end of season poll very soon, so thanks for your input Andrew. If anyone else would like to discuss, please do so.

I'd like to congratulate the following managers on winning this year's Football for Smart People league:

1st: Gonna be a Brees
2nd: TheRapists
3rd: Slack Jawed Yokels

Prize money has been dispersed (it was sent to the email you used to pay your league dues with).

The rest of you need to try harder!

IMPORTANT: The end of season poll will be sent out very soon. I'll be posting it on the forums and also sending the link out via Yahoo...

Thanks everyone! Your opinion matters very, very much on the success of our league.

I'll add an assortment of options to the poll.

- Change waiting time of trades

Bacon wrote:If we aren't gonna allow the comish to force trades through then I think 2 days. 3 days makes it hard to trade for players to play that week.


Adding poll option. People agreed on the mid-season poll already to change this to 2, but it'll be for a formality on this poll.

- Change flex slot

Adding poll option.

I'll be providing an array of options in the poll regarding this.

Bacon wrote:Isn't it only 2 because that's what it's worth in the real game?


You are correct. For some reason I thought it counted as a TD but I looked it up, and it sure is 2 points.

- Remove roster rock for consolation teams?

Bacon wrote:Maybe have the rosters unlocked but give waiver priority to those still in contention? Free agents are fair game.


I don't know if that's even possible, but I'll check.

Poll Results:
2016 End Of Season Poll.pdf
(20.61 KiB) Downloaded 23 times

Let me summarize this so it's easier to discuss...

Everyone is mostly in agreement with the following items (50% or over, with no ties or conflicts), thus they will be effective next season...

Administrative:
Draft Day = Wednesday before the season starts (no change)
Trade Deadline = current default setting of week 10 (no change)
Trade Processing Time = 2 days (change)
Consolation Winner gets 1st Draft Pick = Yes (change)
Remove Roster Lock for Consolation Bracket = Yes, with the stipulation that waiver priorities will be manually edited so that championship teams have first pick over consolation teams. (change)
Happy with Sunday - Tuesday Waiver System = Yes (no change) - Fun fact: everyone was in 100% agreement on this!
Is The IR Slot Useful? = Yes (no change, except allowing direct IR slot adds next season)

Scoring:
Penalize QBs for Pick Sixes Thrown = No (no change)
Points for 1st Downs = No (no change)

Lastly, 75% of people had a good time this season. :thumbsup:

If the item wasn't in the summary list, it will be discussed and re-voted upon as necessary. These items include:
- Draft Pick Trading
- Flex Slot - We need to choose between the two options that got 37.5%.
- Punishment for starting inactives/empty slots for multiple weeks
- Yard Bonuses - The issue here is a consensus. For example, people that voted for "Keep current bonuses" added in other bonuses and scoring comments.
- Consolation winner draft pick - Now that this is official, does it go into effect immediately? i.e. Tools won consolation, does he get 1st pick in 2017?

Let's begin discussion on these 5 action items and see what we can come up with.

My Notes:
Scoring. A required, B and C optional
A) 20yd/1pt or 10yd/1pt B) no bonuses, current yardage bonus, 40+ bonus C) no 1st down points or yes 1st down points
