STUDque
Message added by GolfSpy_APH,

Congrats to @blackngold_blood on being the 2021 MGS Fantasy Golf Champion. It was a honour to play this season and just a lot of fun as well! Thank you to all who participated and looking forward to next season as we all try to pull the golden ticket and title away from BNG.

As I have said previously, I prefer to pick players. Though I'm fairly certain the standings would look similar regardless of picking vs best ball though. The better fantasy players tend to rise to the top eventually. Point in case, the current leaders in the standings have won 2 of the 3 titles and the winner last year is currently in 8th. It all evens out for the most part.


I really would like to get back to matchups with everyone each week though.

Me too on that last part - I've gotten killed in the points against column. 😞

 

Having played both formats in football and golf I think its a misnomer to say that there is more strategy in one then the other - there is clearly a different strategy between the two but there is strategy involved never the less.  

 

IMO the bigger "luck" creator is when you have match ups that don't include everyone.  I'm taking huge advantage of that in baseball this week - I grabbed a guy whom I think the Rays will be calling up on June 1st based on other moves that they have made.  It's a risk because normally you need your entire roster and then some in fantasy baseball.  But I'm playing the last place team, I'm banking on him missing a few day games and not always having his best line up to help fill the void this week.  

 

Thus far it's working. 🙂

Yeah - I totally do not get the matchups in the league. It should be everyone or just 1 other team. I've given up trying to figure it out and just try to grab some guys off the wire that folks might have overlooked and try to get the most points that I can without worrying about what the other teams I'm matched up against do. 

I get it.
It's for fun. It's free.

I don't know all the ins and outs of he system so not sure what it is entirely capable of. Can we do a split? Lock two in and take best of the rest from your team? Or pick 6 and best of those count? Something that is between both formats?

This is what we wanted to do initially. 10 on your roster, start 5, best 4 scores count. But nay, it’s all or nothing. I’m open to reducing the size to allow for all play again but the thought of two leagues with different rules makes me shudder. 
 

I do fundamentally disagree that the best ball format comes down to luck and the team you drafted. You can make your own luck by smart acquisitions and savvy trading…especially with how many trade partners there are and how deep the pool can be with rosters limited to 8. There’s a lot of hard decisions to make even in this current best ball format (case in point the waivers discussion) so I can’t ever see the champ being a fluke given how long and competitive the season is. For this reason, I think I’ll always be team best ball on those votes. The start/sit rules can lead to very frustrating weeks….especially if someone WDs.
 

We play for fun, to cheer for positive things to happen. It’s much more engaging if you’ve always got a shot to move up come Sunday.

it will never happen because the mods will never give out 2 golden tickets. trust me on this...

If you take the champion of both leagues to play for that ticket, then we can see! Could do a 2 week playoff, each team has to just put the team together and leave it like now the other week you have to pick 4.....OOOOOO the mayhem!

Good job Jamie... make a last minute switch to Grace because he is owned by more guys and go away from your go to gut guy in Whaley who has been so solid... also didn't bother dropping him for the player I wanted and now he WD. That is easily the worst move I have had so far this season.

Ok gentlemen. I’m thinking about moving JT!  It will take a haul to get him I think but seeing what’s out there. Just a heads up though. I already own the only 3 golfers that I would trade straight up for him.  Let’s hear some offers.  
 

Also to note Harris English or Cameron Tringale are not of any interest to me as I think they are overvalued.

You say you don't like "flukes," but having only one matchup per week brings in the most flukey results possible. It's like someone making the fantasy football playoffs when their team is close to the bottom in points scored. They got lucky all season in their matchups.

The more matchups we have, the less flukey the results. We couldn't play everyone each week this season due to league size, so we set up the most matchups you could in a round robin fashion. It's not perfect, but it's much better than only having one matchup each week.

nope; didn't say I don't like flukes... not sure where that came from.

If my team is matched up against another team head to head then I know exactly who they are starting or at least who they have on their roster and can strategize against it. Not sure how this is 'flukey' but at least I know what I'm up against. 

It's like match play vs stroke play; in match play I have to beat the guy I'm playing against; stroke play I have to beat the entire field. You either play the field or play one person.

if you want a competitive league where you've truly identified the winner then picking your starting lineup every week is the way to go. takes a lot of research and analysis to fill those 4 slots.

if you want a super casual league to see who gets lucky and drafts the best players then bestball format is the way to go.

I'm not the commish so my opinion doesn't really matter but having done both in football I can assure you that there is a massive difference between each.

You said lucky and fluke, but maybe the context was misunderstood. Regardless, more matchups brings in less luck.

 

I understand wanting to root against your opponents rosters, but that shouldn't effect building the optimal lineup. Basing lineups off of other people's rosters is like starting your backup QB in ffb because your starter is playing your starting defense. Rooting interests aren't good for setting lineups imo...

The word fluke came in when I made a joke about my championship last year and it being a fluke because of the best ball format.

The one thing i can point to do far this season is total fantasy points earned the top teams are still the top teams so it's working this way, but I am sure we will all be happy to have it back to full field play regardless of starting 4 or best ball.

Here is the top however many based off fantasy points scored to date including today.

So, I'm just going to put this out there because I brought it up in commissioner's chat Slack. Right now, the top 15 people in total points are the top 15 people on record in this league and the only one really overperforming his point total (10+ spots) is ironically @Undershooter who sits 2nd in the standings, but 15th in total points. The top 12 in the standings are all within one week's worth of games from each other.

Admittedly the next 15 spots right now are a bit more luck based in some spots, but I'd remind everyone that last season we got it pretty spot on with 29 of the top 30 teams in total points making the cut for the playoff and again, the only one who missed was a team who started super slow and picked it up after the restart with a great turnaround.

Fun is the operative word here - no complaints from me - I have fun playing fantasy sports - I have one team, in FFB that's a money team - that one is fun too - I've won that league twice and finished second twice in 6 years - that's a significant amount of money.  That's fun

 

But honestly this is every bit as much fun - so cheers to our mods and commissioners for setting it up and keeping it running.  Thank you!
