For the record I told him to put "AWESOME" in place of kinda humble. Got shot down 🙄

Berg is a legend in his own mind.

Important notices are to be put in big lettering to last for eternity, it is the words of commoners that should be swept into the dustbin of history, like your Circus team was by me.

You may have won the battle, but the war has already been won by me. You shall go the way of the British, Confederates, and Germans (twice)!!

Yep. When we open a thread for review applications, the winner can contact one of the mods and pick himself for that review.

That's a cool award 👍.  I have no idea what Fantrax is and never played any of these on-line fantasy sports contests.  But this being MGS and you all being who you are, I'm game.  I have a low end smartphone that I do not use for MGS (use my laptop); so hopefully I can do this via my laptop. I just created a FT account.

I do the fantasy golf using my laptop so you are fine there.    Not that difficult.  you pick your team via a draft.  Then each week you pick which players you want to start.; usually 4 out of your 8 players.   You may have to pick up players if you don't have enough to fill a roster or you can trade with others to try and improve your team.    It is a way to keep engaged in golf tournaments week to week since you have a stake in who plays well.

That sounds easy enough, thanks!  And, just like my game when I'm on in regulation and within 10 feet... "I should be able to 3 putt from here" 🤣

Trust me, it’s a lot of fun. Like you, these leagues have been my first fantasy leagues, and it’s been great. Stud, Berg, and Shooter do a wonderful job running the leagues.

Well... this is how some leagues work 😉

Having played FF for many years now, this is my first foray into a different fantasy sport. When drafting, are we aiming for who we think will perform best all year, and then maybe a couple rotational guys depending on the tournament? Or is it a fresh start each tournament? Thinking the former, but wanted to verify before I research my strategy too much 😅

You draft a certain number of players (8 or 9??) just like in FF and you choose 4 to start for the week.

Waivers and FA and trades just like football.

Only difference is you set your lineup before the tournament starts on Thursday.

Be sure that you take a close look at how the scoring works...

All will be revealed soon folks,but I'll tell you this. Perhaps those of your forming plans may want to wait for us to discuss some of the changes we're trying to make to smooth the league out in a better fashion.

Ooh, does that mean we’re finally allowing punters into the league? I hear most are fantastic golfers.

Does the league runs through the FedEx cup or end just before the start of FedEx?

I want to weigh in on Majors. They should be a higher point value than other tournaments and The Players Championship should be awarded a similar point value.

Reflecting point value associated with FedEx Cup points. Should be relatively easily assimilated.

Last year our playoffs coincided with the FedEx Cup playoffs. I’m not sure how the scoring is gonna work this year, but last year we played 5 teams for majors instead of the normal weekly 2.

Sounds good and definitely emphasizes majors.

Any word of the draft date yet?

No. Next major milestone is the 9th when we'll finalize the participants. Once that happens, we'll hold a few league votes to include draft availability and work from there. We want to continue marching forward but need to ensure it's not rushed either.

While we're in a small lull, here's some small changes in scoring us commisheses have decided:

FG Scoring.jpg

Highlighted cells are different from last year.  For those new to the league, some of the stats compound on each other.  For example, a W in a playoff gets you 24 points (CtM, T25,10,5,W,Plyf) and a Hole-in-One gets you 5 (H1,Eag).  

There will be a few votes to come on overall format but the scoring method won't be affected regardless of the direction we choose.  If there's any stats you'd like to see added, please speak now or forever hold your peace.

==================================

And a public service announcement.....

The following players need to go into Fantrax and change their team name or abbreviation to be something closer to their forum name so we actually know who you are.  Even something as simple as (username) at the end of your unique name will do:

@Dmattband1225 @ZJBogey2 @Hackster @gobama84 @the_hammer @fixyurdivot @Golfermarcus @armour248 @newballcoach @edingc @Nunfa0 @revkev @JB TexasEx@jddaigneault
