Couldn't find enough teams for my league at work, so season's been cancelled.
He let us know last Wednesday, I was like wtf. So now only in one league, instead of the two I wanted to be in
I should've invited you to my league instead of sycked
Plenty of lead time I gave you all. NOW LOOK AT YOU
You gave me plenty of time, but if you look back you will see I said I'm in two leagues, my keeper and a regular league....then Chips fucked us
Catch the ball Gronk
Hold onto the ball Hunt.
opponent this week has gillislee...sitting on his bench
And, not that any sane person would've started Alex Smith but damn... two 40+ TDs so far.
This fucking guy
And another huge run to cap the stupid bonus
Was 2 receiving yards away from that 100+ bonus too. Kid looks way better than Spencer Ware ever did. Crazy.
Too many fuckheads in it.
I hate those fucking bonuses for 100+ yards. Why is 100 yards 3pts better than 99 yards? Get fucked!
5 points. Bonuses are the best part of FFL, IMO.
That's crazy if you ask me.
The arbitrariness is what makes FF so fun !1!!!
That's exactly right.
Isn't most of FF arbitrary? Why are passing TD default 4 points and not 6? Why does a DEF get punished if a QB throws a pick and they take it back to the 3 and punch it in?
Or your DEF is punished if that teams QB throws a pick-6.
Yahoo I think finally defaults to that not happening anymore. But no real way to fix the pick or fumble into the red zone.
My league has a series of bonuses for passing, rushing, and receiving, so its not just a general +3 for 100 or something. I've been doing that for a few years now and think its been okay. And passing TDs are 6.
For my team, I'm glad Gillislee made it into my lineup after I found out about the Dolphin/Bucs week 1 bye.
I thought a lot of crazy rules would be fun to try in Bevi's league to be different from my other leagues that have been very traditional for so long, but as soon as one of those bonuses hits against me
In the league I was in every 10 yards was 1 points, 2 pt bonuses for over 100
so 100 yards = 12 points, 99 yards = 9 points. Also, no decminals, lame.
You'll benefit from them more than it kills you, in my experience.
I also found a league that would award extra points for players scoring outside their specialty, which is what I wanted to do all along but Yahoo wouldn't let me ($90 but I would cover it myself)... so next year we can really go whole hog!
Screw leagues that don't do fractional points. 89 yards isn't the same as 80 yards
My day so far
LA Rams DST
Guaranteed a win and I have four more guys going tomorrow to his zero.
Rams up to 29.
David Johnson and Allen Robinson week 1
Drafting Allen Robinson was your 1st mistake
Thielen looks like this year's great white hope.
Lost on the Terrance Williams TD, he was a spot start for Odell. That is a special kind of bad luck.
Bold strategy, Cotton...
No room for Foster?
Fucking dipshit Eifert wastes a TD not knowing where he is on the field
Bad night for AJ both helps and hurts.
Bevi - over 45% of your remaining FAAB for Henry
And I could have gotten him for free. I learned a lot about the league right there. Either people aren't that familiar with FAAB or they're waiting on the next David Johnson to appear halfway through the season.
Still, he's a potential second half league-winner. Don't really see anyone else out there that can make the potential splash he could.
Tate reversal will probably be the difference in my L.
my opponent has tate AND stafford so i'm all good
