Fantasy NFL 2019

I left it a bit late last year before setting it up, but I just wanted to see if there was much/any interest in doing it again for the forthcoming season.

Their drafting and trading over the last 18 months has been really impressive.
Doubt they can go all the way, but I'd be surprised if they didn't make the playoffs - possibly as AFC North champs.

Of course, it's the Browns, so they could fuck everything up spectacularly.

A lot of the good work was done by Sashi Brown. John Dorsey just reaped the benefit.
Dorsey is a good talent evaluator,  he is too willing to take risks on players with dubious character though.

Anyway when is the next Fantasy season starting up?

I'll probably do the draft a week before the season starts.
It was a fairly quick process last year.

Just re-activated last year's league, so last year's players may have received an email.

Anyone wanting to join the 'fun', let me know.

spent about 20 minutes trying to find the page to set up my auto draft picks. No luck and no Luck it seems.

I think that's because the draft hasn't been scheduled yet.
I'll set it for next weekend, if that suits everyone.

If you're not available to draft you can auto-draft (which will select the next highest-rated pick each round).

I'm going to set the draft for 4pm next Sunday (1st September).
Might alter the scoring a bit too, as you can change the settings to reflect more than just mostly TDs.

Autodraft is shit and tends to draft two kickers and two Ds like a dick. But luckily I'm not in work until 6pm spo I'll be able to draft my usual 9000 RBs before letting auto  draft take over for the last few picks.

It does the whole roster of 18, so it'll fill up every team with (I think) 3 x QB, 9 x FLEX (RB/WR), 2 x TE, 2 x K and 2 x D/ST. All undrafted players can be traded afterwards as free agents.

Pay attention to whatever evil scoring twists the commissioner has embedded in the league before you draft. Did a league where rushing TDs were dialed back to 3 points to see if you had bothered to read up. Didn't catch me with that trick. I did not draft Marshawn Lynch #1 even though he was suspended 4 games and only 3 points for rushing td.

I've upped the points so that total yardage, first downs and all other positive plays score more heavily, as well as bonus points for generally doing good things.

You should be able to see them if you look at the league settings page.

I be in. I did feel the league was a bit too quarterback friendly. High points for passing yards and touchdowns and hardly any significant penalty for interceptions. Maybr 0.5 to 0.4 points for yards passing and 4 for.passing touchdown.
Oh and not bitter cos I did pick up Patrick Mahomes early on the waiver wire.


Edit: having seen update see passing yards are more adjusted. Still feel interception and fumbles should be heavily penalised. But much happier with it.

I wasn't aware you could change such things last time until it's too late.

The standard scoring system was too pro-QB. For example, a RB who ran for 200 yards without a TD could get fewer points than one who ran for 50 yards and scored from a yard, but a QB could connect less than half the time and still end up with 50+ points.

Now ALL good things (scores, 1st downs, completions, big yardage, etc) will gain more points, and ALL bad things (sacks, fumbles, incompletions, missed FG/PaT, being shit, etc) will lose more.
There will be some BIG scores, but it will hopefully better reflect what happens on the field.

The idea is that, for example, a 30 yard TD pass will now score as much for the WR as it does for the QB.

The interceptions were only -1 last year, so it's quite an increase.
Also it scores more for the opposition defence now too.

Yeah, and only a dildo would draft 2 D/ST and 2x Ks themselves in a draft. That's pure waiver wire stuff for their bye weeks. The programming or whatever it is of the autro draft is pure Paul Gadd. I normally play the NFL.com fantasy though as IT'S BEST. In 6 leagues this season already. Two of them have a bit of coin on them. Shall we throw a few quid on this one?
