sure but it seems to punish people for rostering more than 3 RB's

Another League (10man) I play is the following:

QB
WR x3
RB x2
TE
Flex (WR/RB/TE)
K
DEF

ALL the real WRs & RBs are gone. Have to waiver wire the "boom or bust" players every week. Makes it a real gamble. Early season I rotated 4 WRs, later season I've switched to 3 RBs due to waiver injury pickups.

Not a fan TBH.

That's a lot of slots. There wouldn't be anything on the waiver wire. I'm saying that we should do:

1 QB
2 WR
2 RB
1 TE
1 Flex (WR, RB, TE)
1 K
1 Def

This would only change the types of positions on the waiver wire, not how many people would be there. It would not change the points significantly since, as far as I can tell, the league favors WR more than RB.

With many teams doing running by committee, I hate it coming down to which back the OC puts in on a goal-line play. Flex stay as WR/TE, which unless you own Gronk, is just a WR slot.

OR

Change Flex to TE/RB
& remove the TE slot
& add a WR slot.
(QB, WR x3, RB x2, Flex (TE/RB), K, Def

Then if you have Gronk, or one of the maybe 1-2 others worth having, you can use them. Else a boom or bust RB, which is the same as the rest of the TEs.

If we want to change the slots, I'd add a QB slot before another RB slot... At least of the 32 of those, there are 20 who aren't terrible.

Changing gears for a second, I want to know what you guys thought about this for next year...

In order to keep people interested until the end, I was thinking about adding a prize for the consolation playoff bracket winner. This way, players who don't make the championship bracket still have something to fight for and don't give up.

For this season, the prize distribution is:

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

If we modify this slightly, whilst keeping the $20 buy-in, we could do something like this:

1st = $110
2nd = $55
3rd = $25
Consolation bracket winner = $10
(Optional: consolation winner gets a $10 "credit" for next year's buy-in instead. Basically the consolation winner would pay %50 of the buy-in, but receives no actual money)

In this scenario, the consolation bracket winner gets half their money back which is way better than losing it all!

Also, we could do something like this:

1st = $100
2nd = $50
3rd = $30
Consolation bracket winner = $20

My issue with this scenario is that the prize amounts are diminished more considerably and thus I think it would require raising the buy-in. Also, 3rd place is gettin' shafted on the prize money a bit since you could suck ass all year and still get $20 by winning consolation.

Thoughts?

It needs to happen. I would do $10 for consolation.

You want to pay people for sucking balls all year? I wouldn't even take the money. If you wanted to give me money for coming in seventh place, I would be very insulted.

Guys, this isn't rocket science or a government were running here. Keep it simple! First, second and third places win money, THAT'S IT! You didn't win? Good luck next year!
