  1. Twitter is great for quick scoops on breaking news but very volatile overall on actual fantasy advice. Seems like most folks hedge every comment so they’re always right. In addition to Sxm, I like the Fantasy Footballers. They have just about as good of advice as anywhere else but are very entertaining in their presentation…. YouTube and podcasts, I consume either depending on whether I’m in the car or at home. I also like that they have a good focus on the advanced stats to find edges where they may not be immediately apparent.
  2. 3 weeks left to the season. Who’s gonna make the playoffs??? Thanksgiving week is always a fun one in the fantasy football team. No lead is safe in either division at this point so it’s gonna take some good decisions down the stretch. Speaking of decisions, we’ve got 2 days left to trade. Ends Thursday at midnight EST. Reminder, top 16 in each division make the playoffs and top 4 in each get a first round bye. Earning a bye also guarantees you your entry fees back (at least). Good Luck all! PS. I’m open to one last trade or two before the season is over. Send ‘em!
  3. I put this in the Slack chat but I’ll put it here too. We had a bit of a mishap with the schedule where week 14 was accidentally tagged as a playoff week, not regular season. So there were no matchups entered. Fantrax helped a little but I had to enter the matchups manually so I used a random spinner to get it all in there. The only manual choices I made were when the spinner came up with a matchup that has already happened during the season and my default was to choose the next closest number that was available. No consideration was given to standing. Reminder, top 16 in each division get in to the playoffs and top 4 in each get a bye.
  4. PLAYOFFS This was mentioned in the early season discussions but I wanted to put this out there as definitive since I finally got around to putting together the bracket. Top 16 in each division will play in the playoffs..top 4 in each receive a first round bye. We'll be following this manual (outside of Fantrax) bracket: And to the money aspect, here's what the final payouts will look like: Total Money Collected: $580 Less Fantrax Fee: $580 Fantrax waived fee for this season only. We kept the $10 entry because 1)we had already collected from a number of players 2)bigger payouts this year without the fee eating it up and 3)we'll have to pay next year anyway so may as well get used to it. Miss Playoffs or get eliminated in the first round: $0 As voted on by the league Make it to Round 2, Semifinals: Refund $10 entry fee First round byes automatically qualify for this as a minimum Finish 4th in the Super Bowl: $100 Finish 3rd in the Super Bowl: $150 Finish 2nd in the Super Bowl: $200 Win Super Bowl: $10 entry + MGS Golden Ticket + FF Champ Badge Golden Ticket is a free selection into any of the Official MGS Tests for 2022 Champ can defer prize to 2nd place (or further) in lieu of $$ payout IF the recipient accepts the trade Worth playing for? Good Luck!
  5. Yup. This is it. FFW to week 6 and you’ll see the Rams on @daviddvm roster.
  6. Hey @Pscott19 and @pjgiaquinto I’m super impressed with your respective starts this year considering your roster makeups. Just want to remind you, and everyone else that may not be there, we get 5 bench spots so you each could add 4 more players to fill out your rosters if you want.
  7. Yeah I think I’d like to give a couple players from my regular team to Circus where they’d be more useful! And the punters of course. Just let me own them in both leagues please.
  8. Streaming is one approach. Limited benches make it hard to sit on players so you want to ensure you trade your big money players for equal value before they use up their pitch counts.
  9. Minor oversight. Waivers were meant to run this morning at 3am, not this afternoon at 3pm. Change made, check your rosters for your new players.
  10. I’m actually nervous that my bids are so low but am having a hard time justifying big bids for anyone out there
  11. If you want to start your own side league to do that, have at it. I’m sure I speak for Berg and Undershooter that we’re not interested commishing two official leagues at the same time.
  12. Thanks everyone for a great Fantasy Golf season and congratulations to our champion owner of the year, @blackngold_blood. There's something poetic about how @GolfSpy_APH, a new mod, can be the one to hand over the Fantasy Golf Champ badge to bng.

  13. Man you’re brave jumping into the deep end. Over the years, this league keeps tipping increasingly closer to expert setup with our custom rules and lean player pool.
  14. ….. until games start. Then unclaimed players head to waivers at the start of their game each week until the Wednesday waivers process.
  15. What about top 16 of the 2nd round?
  16. They’ve been advertising this new and improved draft room for multiple years now but it finally feels close. Sadly, doesn’t seem like it’ll be ready in time for ours. The best way to view the old version is on a proper desktop/laptop. Mobile is a tough ask but can be passable if you’re in a pinch.
  17. @daviddvm This was actually a welcome change they added thanks to our feedback and it’s across all the sports now. Previously, a player was on the board until all of their copies were drafted but there was no way to tell how many had gone. Now, there’s an “own” column that denotes how many copies are owned so you can track it a little better.
  18. Same goes for Circus. Those picks are also tradeable if there's an up and coming punter you've been eyeing.
  19. Is it true that Cobra developed putters for the sole purpose of bolstering the putting competition during the yearly Cobra Challenge?
  20. Today is the deadline to sign up. Gonna lock things up tonight.
  21. Thanks to @Berg Ryman for posting this week's update. Got a little busy last night at home getting ready for the first day of school. For those interested, here's the full current playoff standings.

We always are but please understand, this is not under our control. We do the best with what we have at our disposal.
  22. You get points for having a player that participates in a playoff. So yes that’s an advantage. But holes played in playoffs don’t count towards official stats so they don’t count towards fantasy either.
  23. Don’t love my position right now. Can make the last weekend as long as my guys don’t blow up but I’ll have no shot at the championship. Sure would love to still have Burns rather than taking that chance on Z …such is fantasy though. Bng is running away with this thing anyway. What a master class in fantasy ownership.
