You either have to try to pick someone up and drop someone else or just stand pat playing less than a full roster.

So what happens if you don't have enough of your roster to field a full team for an event?

 

 

Forgot to quote you! Lol

For those at the bottom of the draft, I am more than willing to trade a draft pick or two if you want to move up and guarantee a top 4 guy. PM me with offers! Let's get this started!

To help any draft pick trading negotiations, I turned off the rule that forces you to keep the same amount of picks as rounds in the draft. So if you want to trade away extra picks to move up higher, you can. Then just fill the rest of your roster with waiver wire guys. 

 

 

PS. I'm open to trades if anyone wants my coveted 36 spot. 😀 2, top 20 players ain't bad.

You have 8 players on your team. You score will be based on some subset of that team. Let’s say 4. If you don’t have 4
Players playing in the event you can pick up players or hope your limited team can earn enough points. Remember if you drop a player someone else may pick them up.

Thinking of this is part of the strategy for drafting players. What players will play majors, what players have limited schedules, and what players play lots of events.

🤔

[plays lots of events] + [makes lots of cuts] + [often among the top 20 finishers] + [boat load of luck] = MGS Golden Ticket 🤗

Also with this and the recent talk about guys that play a lot of events. I’m willing to trade my 2nd, 3rd, and possibly 4th round picks for a first or high second if you don’t want to wait for FAAB after the draft to get the guys you want!

Welcome to Fantasy Golf... in the year 2020!

So, you've heard the siren's call and decided that this year is going to be the year you're going to take the forum by storm and earn that lovely MGS Golden Ticket.

Then panic strikes. You've never played fantasy golf before, what are you doing? Well, consider me a guide to hopefully help you.

Game Style

So right now we are voting between the old style of game, and this new best ball style. Here's the difference between the two. Our current/old style is very similar  to other fantasy sports. You start 4 players from a roster of 10, with the remainder of them being on your bench. You set your lineup before the first shot on Thursday and ride it out, no substitution.

Best Ball is a different animal. Everyone starts every week and there is no bench. The game takes your top 4 or 5 scores and that's that. No bench, just starters.

Roster Construction 

So, the age old question, how do you value players. Do you load up on guys who are going to ball out at majors and big events but might not play alot, or do you value guys who play alot and are consistent but not spectacular. Do you want Tiger for 15 events or CH3 for 27? To be honest, it's a wash, you're probably want to mix things up a touch.

The Draft

Yes, there's going to be a draft. Yes, it's gonna be a 60 team draft. It starts with whoever's got to pick #1...

Oh 🙂

and runs to number 60. Then it snakes back from 60 to 1 and then again. Now, we're running tests to see how the multiple player thing is gonna work, and we'll update when we know. There's also going to be a draft prep post as well, but I'm going to say this here and now.

IF YOU AREN'T GOING TO BE AT THE DRAFT, PRERANK YOUR DRAFT BOARD

The Season

So, how does the season run. Well, we're aiming to start with the Farmer's and run until the playoff start. As mentioned earlier, we're doing only PGA events, save the Match-Play. No European Events, No Korn Ferry, just those events. Now, this means we're playing an opposite field event for the Match Play and taking a bye week with the Zurich team event. 

Again, this calls back to roster construction.  There may be weeks where you don't have 4 or 5 guys in the event. It's your call whether or not to add players from the event at the expense of some of your other players or go with less knowing that you just need to make the playoffs.

The Playoffs

So, we're structuring the playoffs like this I do believe. The top 30 teams on record will make the playoffs. After the first Fed Ex event we cut to the top 20, going into the tour championship, we cut to the top 10, after the tour championship, we'll have a winner.

So all you have to do is get there and then hopefully you have alot of guys in the Fed Ex. 

Other Questions

So, I know this is an intro post to the league, but maybe didn't ask your question, or maybe I got you thinking of something else. If so, post here in the thread and we'll try to get you an answer. Also, if you haven't already, go vote on Fantrax in the league polls to have your voice heard.

👍 Very helpful Berg

Yeah, I am 52 Doesn't look like I will get Tiger...

 

As a complete fantasy sports virgin I have zero expectations other than a bit of fun. So it is probably best I do not get Tiger. Someone who knows that they are doing is probably a bit better off.

But in the second round, you should be #8 pick... it could happen.

True. Not sure I would take him even then. We will see. As I said, I have no clue what I am doing.

That makes at least two of us.  I have set-up my draft list and switching it around based on a morphing algorithm loosely based on logic 🙂.  For instance, on the PGA Tour website player photos, how many buttons on their polo shirt are latched, head turned left, right, or straight into the camera... and a few other key details I need to keep close to the vest 😆.

Haha. I was thinking about having my 8 year old daughter help me pick.
