Anybody doing a Guillotine league? I still have my long standing work PPR league but I find this format really put excitement back into fantasy.
Basically you draft, then the lowest score each week is eliminated and all their players go to waivers.
Now you are in a pickle; spend your FAAB now or try to survive another week with your current roster and your funds intact
So, for example - we have 1k budget somebody just spent $400 on Diggs and $200 on Elijah Mitchell, now that guy doesn't really have the money to pursue top talent for a couple months, so he needs to squeak by on what he has on his roster now or other people's scraps.
Is Mitchell worth 20% $200 of FAAB? Hell - who knows, but what I do know is in 13 weeks you can get CMC or Kamara for less than $200 if you hold onto your dollars AND are still around to bid. Some people hoard their $$$ then get eliminated - so that doesn't work; some people spend like a sailor on payday then can't improve their roster later in the season so that doesn't work either.
Finding the balance and getting lucky at the right times is what wins
