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.

I tried adding to my claim list and now they are on my team. Confused how this is working. I didn’t know if it’s “holding” on my team if I successfully get them or not. I’ll drop back to the pool if I need to.

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.

For your last two positions you will need to bid on players that you are interested in. Keeping in mind you have a budget of 100 FAAB for the ENTIRE season. Click on the player you want to add and put in a bidding amount. If you are the highest bidder congrats he is on your squad! If someone bid higher and for example he is the final copy then you get FAAB you bid back and will have a chance to add other remaining players. Of course its up to each individual as to how much you want to bid, but in the interest of competitiveness here are a few strats. 

Go big early! - If there are two guys you like and really want for what may be the rest of the season, bid it all. There won't be this much talent in the waiver pool the remainder of the season. 

Straddling the fence - Put substantial bids out in the hopes of getting at least 1 guy you really want and maybe you'll get lucky and get both, however save some FAAB for the rest of year as you may want to rotate one guy in and out of your lineup depending on who is playing that week. 

Wait and see - Still put in conservative bids because there are players you want, but being patient and happy that you can rotate two flyers each week and spend your FAAB over the course of the season and maybe make a big move or two clsoer to the end of the season. Maybe there are some players that are on waivers that make a run this season and are great pickups to hold for the season?

 ***Just saw a notification Stud replied so this may all be mute**

With this format there is a benefit to having more players playing each week, it gives you a higher chance at having someone hit and make a run that weekend. However majors are still huge and are worth extra. Keep in mind you can also trade FAAB so there are ways to "earn" it back in some cases. Also it is only your top 4 scores that count, therefore its likely going to come from the players you draft, but there are some solid players out there. 

And finally, when placing a bid you can look over and see how many of each player is owned. If the number is 0 you can likely risk a lower bid amount, if there are 4 then you will be bidding on the last guy and it will in all likelihood take a higher amount to get such person. Hopefully this is helpful and clears it up for you. 

Yes I have a lot of time on my hands right now, snowed in, basically lockdown restrictions so I will be going deep on the waivers and trades to see what are some of the best paths forward!

Think I may owe an apology to all concerned here, I was screwing around on the website after the draft and added a player prematurely.  Sorry for any inconvenience I caused, not my intent to cheat anything I promise.

Here comes another newb question (sorry):  Using the phone app and I don’t know that I see a field that indicates if a player is or is not in the field for the Farmers.  Fields are set by 5pm the preceding Friday I believe so it should be finalized; is that info in Fantrax or do I need to check a different source for that?

Thanks.

Last season it came up as a little green circle with a check mark that indicated they were in the field. It was also confirmed I believe Monday after the weeks results were finalized. We should get that indication on Monday, in the mean time we can check the farmers website?

Should show along the left side of player, where the grey marker is on my two players. There have been updates from last year so even for us who have used it before there will be some changes and things that new for us.

I was actually thinking I should have taken him in the 4th instead of Kuchar after he fell to the 6th before being gone.

Yep,  I really wanted Zalatoris and was hoping he would go under the radar.  I kept picking someone else hoping I could pick him up in the next round; unfortunately that didn't work out.

Hopefully it'll work out and leave me a full budget of my FAAB money as the season progresses. @blackngold_blood gave me an offer I couldn't refuse, trading away my 15th overall pick for 59th and some extras in the later rounds.1f4bf0d80bbc9c08a827c65cd1c59893.png.cb324e8d550d0001890fee63e1f2353e.png

Will it work out? We'll see, I did lose out on some of the top players (DJ, Rahm, Rory, DeChambeau, etc...) and it'll be a wait and see game whether or not I end up underneath a falling anvil.

I took a chance on him.  I just have to believe he's going to outrun that dark cloud that's been hanging over his game.
