I'd like to chime in with my two cents on some of the proposed rules. 

Bonuses: I'm fine with them if it's a bonus for an extraordinary performance. If the threshold is 100 yards rushing or 300 yards passing, I'm not a fan. 

Punters: The hardest of hard passes on including punters. I've been in a league that included them before. I did not enjoy it. I put them on the same level as including head coaches or nonsense like that. It's 100% unnecessary. 

Defensive scoring: The only thing I caught was a mention of IDP, and yeah, hard pass on that too. Admittedly I need to go back over a few more posts to read the specifics, but if the D/ST scoring is somewhat traditional I'm onboard with it. 

Rushing attempts: I've gotta admit, I'm lukewarm on this one, but am definitely not opposed to it. The point about there not being many bellcow backs these days is well taken, which is why I think it could work. It's entirely dependent on the point value, though and I think .25 is a bit high to be honest. 

FAAB: Definitely makes the WW more lively and I'm a fan of watching people blow their budgets week to week 🤣

Kickers: I am 100% against not including kickers and I think they can be vital members of teams regardless of whether you drafted one or picked one up off the WW. I also tend to agree with a scoring structure that doesn't penalize missed kicks the same. I've been in leagues where kickers were hammered for missing short kicks and lightly penalized for longer kicks. I think the sweet spot is somewhere in between, but I'm sure the commishes will figure it out 😃

.2 points per carry would give 20 carries 4 extra points. .25 would give 20 carries 5 points which is the same thing as 5 catches in a PPR. I might lean slightly toward .2 over .25 but I definitely think there's merit for it to be included in a PPR league. Especially a deep one such as ours where it's not always easy to find players on the WW.

Missed Kicks: Missed extra point should definitely be a negative, most likely minus 1, duh. Now, not sure how the Fantrax scoring works but perhaps we could tier the missed field goal scoring based on league accuracy? For example:

Just took a look at the options and I can confirm that missed kicks penalties based on distance is possible. The vote will probably be a straight yes/no then @Undershooter and I will assign the values on our own if it passes. 

 

You know what else is possible? EVERY. OTHER. FREAKING. STAT. UNDER. THE. SUN. My mind is blown at how many different stats they've added for scoring this year.

  • Yards per rush? Yup that's pretty standard. 
  • Defensive stuffs? You betcha. 
  • Quarterback Rating? ESPN would love this
  • Interceptions returned for touchdowns 30-39 yards? Sure why not. 
  • Average yards after catch? Little precise but sure. 
  • First down percentage rushing? Whoa Nelly

 

I don't think we'll be straying too far into the beyond but it's pretty cool to know we can if we want.

👆x1000000  .... in this day and age if you aren't using FAAB for free agents....SMH

If there is only one change we make -- only one -- this should be THE one...

If we go for FAAB, would you allow a $0 or make it a minimum of $1?

Gotta be 0, unless we do like a 500 dollar budget...right? RIGHT?

I've seen some where they put it at $1 and once you blow through your budget, say $100, then you're done.  I personally would like it to be $0, but I wanted to ask

@GolfSpy STUDque isn't kidding. I was dumbfounded last season when I got to the scoring portion of the commish options. There is the ability to change everything under the sun. (which is why there was a possibility something was off slightly in scoring last year)

 

Plus it looks like they've added a couple of things in the off-season. Say what you will about Fantrax but they are easily the most customize-able fantasy site I've ever seen.



As for FAAB, I'd lean toward $0 but am happy to listen to arguments for both. I've only done $0 FAAB so I have limited experience.

I have never done FAAB before and I have a question. What happens when your budget is gone? Are you no longer allowed to pick up players? What if it is someone no one wants?

The more I use Fantrax the more I like it. I think most of the issues we as a forum have had with them stem from the size of our leagues...I am really enjoying the golf league though. Once you figure it out its pretty intuitive. Hopefully we don't have draft issues like we did last year though. yikes.

Everyone starts with the same amount of $... typically 100 for the entire season.

Every week (usually Tuesday night) you choose the players you want to bid on and how much you want to pay for them.
Waivers will run overnight and it's a blind bid so if you bid 7 and someone else bids 8 they get the player.
If there are only 2 bids and you both bid the same amount then it goes to waiver priority and if you have the higher priority then you get the player.  (this rolls throughout the season)

Once you have no money left you can still 'bid' on a player and if nobody else bids on them you get them.

After waivers run everyone is a free agent and you don't have to use your FAAB on them and can add/drop for free.

There is a definite strategy to the process and I'd suggest searching for some articles on FAAB strategy to help out.

So you only bid on waiver wire players?

Ok so the thread has been up for almost a week and have heard back from almost all of the returning players. Paging the following guys that haven't logged into Fantrax or the thread yet:

@HighFade @mudfish @PAgolfer2017 @revkev @Hackster @Ronoc @TSauer

Y'all in? 

There's still time but we've gotta finalize the owners list first so we can do the votes so we can set the draft. Gonna set the draft to launch early so we'll have time for a rain date in case we break it again. 

 

About that, what day of the week works for you guys? I'm thinking like a Thursday night in maybe week 2 of preseason.

What time do you guys usually do it? Eastern since we have a lot of guys maybe even a few international folks?

I have golf league on thursdays but it’s almost playoffs so I might be done by then. But if it’s 8ish I would be fine.

Another question, so they have an app or is it just PC based? I didn’t see one in the App Store.

I'd expect an evening in EST. 8 or 9 could be expected so we can try to accommodate our West coast players. 

According to the focus group I'm in, they're shooting to release a proper app before football starts but here's the link to the interim solution we've been using for the past few years:

Thanks! I’ll check it out. And Thursday would be fine for me then.

I have been at a convention - I do want to be in - I will go into that email post haste and respond.  Do we have a draft date/time yet?
