  • I still dont understand why anyone does leagues where Championship is last week of the season. Players like Mahomes not playing. I never hear anyone saying they enjoy it. They usually complain how it sucks but their league won't change.

    Anyone that enjoys this mind explaining why? :)

    I don't like the idea. Maybe with really deep rosters or Bestball leagues. Would really test one's team depth

    I lost in the 2nd round of my 10 team league because I still believed in Wilson. Team that beat me can barely set a lineup although what he has is FORMIDABLE. Had I started Herbert or Allen I would have advanced to the Super Bowl. In the week 16 consolation (grudge match) game I posted the highest score of the year. With best ball scoring I would have finished 13-3 instead of 10-6

    I am not in any best ball leagues.

    But, they do give an indication of how deeply one's team is built. I believe that there is just as much skill in building depth as there is in selecting a lineup from week to week that is subject to countless contingencies over which the fantasy team owner has no control

    Is anyone in any survivor leagues? I’m pretty sure a lot people were knocked out two weeks ago when the Jets decided to win against the rams

  • Best ball leagues are fun. I throw $25 at a couple. It's a way to have a fun draft, and then see if I can win. It is what it is.
    D3:
    QB—Allen, Lamar, Big Ben
    RB—Zeke, Henry, Cohen, Mostert, Evans (R), Coleman, Pollard, McFarland
    WR—MThomas, Diggs, Lamb (R), Claypool, Lazard, Hardman, Beasley, Coutee
    TE—Tonyan, Jonnu, Graham
    PK—Lutz
    DEF—Ravens

    D4:
    QB—Watson, Stafford, Big Ben, Alex Smith
    RB—Conner, David & Duke Johnson, Edmonds, Cohen, Breida
    WR—Hill, Allen, Golladay, Jeudy (R), Jefferson (R), Jones, Jeffery, Amendola
    TE—LThomas, Smith, Reed, Kmet, Trautman
    PK—Bass
    DEF—Bears
  • Did I first Best Ball league this year for dynasty and loved it. Yes I agree the strategy is missing for selecting your line-up. But I love the idea that if you are a good owner you can have your secret gems on your teams and can be weekly starters.

    Pretty much my point. Being a good owner centers around building your team, via the draft and trades some of which may involve calculated risks.

    I have been building a team since 2010 that appeared in 8 straight Super Bowls, nearly winning 5 straight, had it not been for Andrew Luck in week 16 of 2014.

    But, this team has missed the championship game for 3 straight years even though it has been the scoring champion from 2012 to 2020. That is what kills me.

    I lost AGAIN to a team that has a powerful starting lineup, but, little more after that. This owner does not have any lineup decisions to make, but, somehow thinks he is great.

    NEVER MIND... I am just old and crabby :/ :/ :/

    Fields is outplaying Lawrence BIG TIME tonight. Halftime 35-14... Really impressive considering Fields has a rib injury after that targeting foul.


    Edit: Maybe should have made a new thread for this being college football but figured this is kinda where we do our weekly football talking about games taking place

    Both games so disappointing imo as a fan. I like seeing close games.
    Lets hope the final is a good game...

    Fields just spanked Lawrence. That was a heck of a performance.

    I agree... I’m not a Buckeye fan but wow, when I woke up on the couch and saw what the score was, I was surprised. Now they need to carry that onto Bama. I hope they do... go Big Ten!!
