    Never even thought about it until right now...

    Does Fantrax actually use the league median or is it really the league mean?  Those can be fairly different numbers and I never thought to ask.

    We get a choice and chose median on purpose because it is a more accurate representation of the middle.

    Yikes. I have 0 people on my team playing this coming week. Now trying to decide to punt or pick up a couple. Free win if you play me!

    I raced to my matchups when I read this and was pleased to see we do, in fact, play this week 😃 Definitely much needed after an 0-10

  3. As a Paul Casey owner, I would’ve loved to have the points from his win in Dubai last week. Unfortunately we’re limited to the official PGA stroke play schedule because that’s where the stats come in. You’ll notice this later in the year when the WGC Match Play happens and the only guys we can start are from the opposite field event. Such are the challenges of fantasy golf. 

    If you think about it though, this league would quickly turn into a Euro fantasy league if we found a way to bring in non-PGA events as the scores are typically much much lower. It’d be like if we allowed college players in an NFL league.... no reason to use the more talented NFL players while college guys are putting up video game numbers.

    Excellent. Thanks for the help. Worked just the way it should.

    “Home” in the app will show you the real scores too. Just scroll down to find out. If you tap into them, it’ll bounce you back to live scoring where you can see how your individual guys are doing but the totals aren’t right. 36F35FA4-58A9-4534-9708-29BC0902D2FB.png.3f53f6f976ae1f9cc7b8d4c82d30d8fb.png

    I didn’t spend a dime but didn’t get the players I wanted. Oh well picked up some others.

    I do have a question, is there a setting that tells me If my waiver pickups failed? Looked through the notifications and didn’t see one. Bud did turn off the annoying player has been added to the pool notification. emoji16.png

    Click the filter button when you’re looking at the transaction history then uncheck “executed only.” This will let you see failed claims. 

    Looks like a lot of people wanted Gooch.

    This might have been answered already, but as soon as the waivers clear it's free agency ahead of Thursday correct? So no more bidding?

    Yup. Also, players dropped Tuesday run for waivers on Wednesday. Won’t affect this week but it’ll matter during the season. Gives everyone an equal shot at dropped players rather than rewarding the EST early birds.

    So throw me into the "just exactly how does this next part of the draft work group?" (though I may be the only one in the group 😆).  For my last two positions, do I use the "claim" tool and bid on just two players that I want?  If I do nothing, does the system just auto-pick from "players still available" from my ranking/queue?  

    It's just the normal FAAB waivers process you'd have in any fantasy league. If you do nothing, no one will be added to your team. If you place bids on 10 guys, you'll get the first 2 that you win. If you try to claim 2 but only win 1, you'll get the 1 guy you won and still need to add another.


    PS. FAAB means you bid some your budget towards the claim. Highest bid wins. You only get $100 for the whole year so bid smartly. Since there's 5 copies of each player, bids of $10, $2, and $0 could each still get the player if there's still 3 copies available to be added....the $10 guy just overpaid. You can tell how many copies are owned in the "own" stats column.

  8. OK yes, can confirm the ghostly added players problem is fixed. The only one who has a full roster now is @sirchunksalot because he fleeced...I mean traded for extra picks 🙂


    Also, I have an important announcement re: schedule
    As the perpetual beta testers, we maxed out Fantrax's system. The all play schedule (everyone plays everyone every week) just couldn't handle the amount of teams we have. 60 worked fine last year but that appears to be the limit. Some of you observant folks may have noticed this already but we're moving to 10 matchups each week. 9 against other owners and 1 against the league median. This seemed like a nice round number and takes some of the randomness of a schedule out of play. Sucks to lose the tournament feel of taking a big boost by winning the week, but what can ya do??

    Playoffs will still keep the same format.

  9. It’s not in my bag anymore but I really enjoyed the time we had together.  It depends on which MLA putters you’re looking at. The “Tour” models are the ones that performed well in the MGS test but I’ve seen a lot of people buy the “Pro” version and become disappointed in its performance thinking it was the same one from the tests. It’s not.

    $60 for a Tour X dream or Classic? Run do not walk to buy it. $60 for a pro model? Probably a waste unless your curiosity is taking over. 

    All this said, you still may not like the feel. I loved the firmer feel on mine but seem to be in the minority.

    has the scoring been updated in Fantrax to emphasize a players finish in a major?

    Yes I do believe so. There should be categories for regular finishes and finishes in majors on the stats page

    Send me your email address. I accidentally left someone in that was supposed to be out so you can take over that team.

    First, thank you to you and your fellow commissioners.

    Second, apologies for what's probably a newb question, but having 5 copies available of each player...what does that look like on draft night?  I'm assuming we'll see the same player listed 5, 4, 3 etc., separate times so we'll know he's still available?

    Each player will be listed once.  There’s a column called “#” that shows you how many copies remain. You can’t own more than one copy of a given player so they’ll disappear from the list once you add them.

    Down to 4 with the Pick'em with GB13 still only at 1 strike. Curious who everyone has left to pick from. I feel luck in that I still have Baltimore, Kansas City, Cleveland, Green Bay and Tampa Bay... Now comes the hard part and hoping everyone else has used up top teams and trying to pick who will win the Super Bowl and work backwards from there. 

    I’ve got Cleveland left so this will be my last week. Probably should’ve taken more chances during the regular season but still had to get here. Good luck catching @GB13!

    That was a super impressive showing. Can't believe you could've won the whole thing without even using Kamara's bomb of a day. To square away your Golden Ticket, send a message to @GolfSpy MPR and @Golfspy_CG2 and they'll give you the details you need. Use it wisely!

    In Survivor, we're down to 5. Using three strikes initially felt like a lot but I think it'll play out nicely...especially since things will whittle down quickly in the playoffs. Can't even count on the Jets to lose anymore!

    Looking to the future, here's one more plug for those that may not have seen it yet. We're open and taking interest for the Fantasy Golf league. Check out the thread here:

    Has there been talk of a draft time? I see the default being at 1am and have to assume that's not accurate?

    Not yet. We’ll take a poll like usual to find a time that works best for most people. 

    One nuance to this league vs football is we do the entire draft and season as one big division. Since there could be 60+ teams, we don’t draft full rosters and leave the 2 empty spots up to waivers.

    Look, I like @Apolloshowl a lot, he's an awesome dude, possible future commish of a outside dynasty or keeper league, but if he does the double after @blackngold_blood did one so quickly... I don't know if I'll have the will to live.

    Therefore all support to my chosen champion @PAgolfer2017! Do it for the division, but more importantly do it for me!

    No no no! @B.Boston is gonna do it for me and the honor of the most tradingest division. We worked the hardest so we deserve it the most.

  18. And here we are, the Super Bowl:



    Congrats to our division winners @ChiefMikeOfficer @Apolloshowl @PAgolfer2017 and @B.Boston. Each of you have a huge cause for celebration as you've already won an incredibly difficult 16-team league. Now, can you win the 54 team league???

    For those keeping score at home, Apolloshowl is looking to complete the @blackngold_blood feat of winning both the fantasy golf and football championships. Tough to decide if this is something I'm for, or against but it's interesting nonetheless

    - - - - - - Deep Dive - - - - - - - -

    It's interesting to look at the rosters that advanced this far. The most astounding fact is we've actually got four nearly-unique teams. One would've expected some similarities from people riding the hot fantasy football players but there's actually a ton of diversity in this Super Bowl.

    Check it out:


    • 4 unique QBs, TEs, kickers, and defenses
    • Only James Robinson appears more than once amongst RBs (2)
    • WR has the most duplications but only 2 each for Lockett, Evans, AJ Brown, Aiyuk

    This is definitely not the Henry show we expected. Truly, anybody's game to win.

  20. This has been such an impressive and absolutely entertaining semifinal. You guys really came to play this week, bravo!



     I was a little nervous about the format but these pools to advance really feels like the best way to run the playoffs for this league with so many people. I think a case could be made to add some teams for a bigger first round but this seems to have worked out pretty well.
