2021 Fantasy Golf


Recommended Posts

So, again a newbie question, but are we now getting into the art/science of fantasy golf...a balance between dropping and adding players week-to-week so that you're fielding a full squad, versus holding onto players that may not play in a given week but you like their chance to perform in the following weeks?  Does that mean the week after the Masters or another major things get pretty thin?

I am NOT suggesting people left with 3 players didn't pay attention to that, looks like some system or system familiarity issues maybe.  Just asking a question among the seasoned vets if that's as much of a weekly challenge as it seems to be.

This is going to be fun...watching players and point margins ebb and flow over the course of 4 rounds...

As a friendly note because this is gonna come up, a note on players withdrawing from an event in play. That player's point total reverts to 0, so you lose all accumulated stats for that player.

This is absolutely the dumbest and most ridiculous thing about fantasy golf. It's like he didn't even show up.

Imagine fantasy football where a guy has 110 rushing yards and 2 TDs and is injured in the 4th quarter and is out for the rest of the game and all his stats are erased and those yards and TDs never really happened....

It's not a weekly league. It's season long. Sure, you need to field as many players as you can but think about the cost/benefit before dropping a top 50 player just because he isn't in the field for the week....

And you've hit it on the head. Roster management is as a big key as any into who will come solid at the of the season. It's about knowing when to zig, when to zag, and when to stand pat. The worst part about it? We're all just guessing, maybe a bit more educated than a guess, but a guess none the less.

Sure, I'm not talking about dropping studs just because they sit out the Colonial or something, I just mean the players one would normally consider your 6, 7, 8 player...

Yeah - it totally matters. 

Say you have 5 of your players in the field and only 4 make the cut and are playing well and in the top 25 and you're winning (which, in a league this big it's hard to even figure out but I digress..). One of them hurts his wrist on Saturday afternoon and has to withdraw; you've now lost all of the points he's accumulated for the week, have only 3 players and have gone from winning to losing.

Gotcha... I saw some good players dropped in favor of others just because they weren't in the field last year so that's why I mentioned it.

The other challenge are injuries. How long do you stand pat on a guy like Adam Scott if he's got a minor injury and is expected back soon? Drop and move on or grit your teeth and wait it out...

Suggest away in my case LOL - work was crazy this week and I totally forgot about this starting.  

I know I'm not going to win or be anywhere near the top - so this is just for fun.  Some weeks I'll be able to put more effort in than others.

At least the point count only goes to the top 4 scorers right?
So there is a slim chance that 3 might have more points that 4 if they all go off in the next 3 days. well I hope.

Very true. It is about total points. And a team with one player can theoretically beat a team with four players. The scenario would be the team that had 4 players all
Missed the cut and the team with one player wins the event with a low score.

Lots of dynamics but with the best ball format the league uses,
Maximizing players is good. As others have been discussing, you still have to figure out what players to hold even though they don’t play a lot. Say Top name players play 11 events a season. Do you hold them if they aren’t playing for the next month on the PGA and play in Europe instead. Do you replace a player with a player that plays most weeks but doesn’t quality for majors? Balancing you team is really the key for a league like this.

If the player makes the weekend THEN gets injured, well that kinda bites. Comparing to fantasy football, some guys say they are going to play and then the game starts and they dont feel like it or pull a hammy getting dressed or see 1 touch and decide it was a bad idea. Its the gamble of sports.

it doesn't happen too often but when it does it stings... 

apparently this is also how the PGA does their official stat tracking so that's why the fantasy sites do it.

And to put another instance in there, we have brought this issue up to Fantrax on numerous occasions, but they haven't budged on moving it to letting the stats stand. One day

Those are who Fantrax will score as your top 4. It will change automatically if another player starts to out score one of them.

As a friendly note because this is gonna come up, a note on players withdrawing from an event in play. That player's point total reverts to 0, so you lose all accumulated stats for that player. Luckily for most of you with Wolff in play, that's not a bad thing.
Also, since this has been brought up in the Slack and I know some of you aren't on that, I'll post in the thread.
The question of how will I know who my top four players are and how many points I have is one that it tricky with the best ball format, here's how to know.
Use the home page matchups!
The home page matchups show where you stand with your four best players at any given time, it also shows live tracking of the league median score as well. If you click on live scoring and look at matchups that, it shows all current players playing, meaning your total is going to be higher. For example, ZJBogey had the highest score after rd1 with 80.05 points. However, if you click his live score it shows he has 116. The scores on the home page are the ones you need to use to understand where you are. However, finish bonuses won't be live until the tournament ends.

I must not be looking in the right place (or is it different on the phone app?) because what I would think was the home page matchups show me the total from all 6 I had playing.

The score from my top 4 is around 85, but I’m seeing 105. Does anyone know if there is a way to have the app only show the top 4 combined?
