I am taking over commish of the ongoing pinside fantasy football league(Christopher, cscmtp had run it). Its moving from mffl to yahoo(Much better software). I think its been going for several years, but I only joined last year(after waiting 3 years to get in). If you want to play in the pinside fantasy football league, here is your chance. This league is a $50 league(last year it was $100). Its ppr with a waiver budget and a live online draft. if all 12 slots fill, prizes will be.

1st place = $385
2nd place = $125
3rd place = $ 65
4th place = $ 25

If less than 12 make it, then it then prizes will be adjusted. Its pretty much the same setting as we have here, except its waiver budget instead of inverse waiver order. So you have $100 budget for the season. if you wish to submit a wavier claim, highest bid gets it. if bid is a tie, then it goes by waiver priority. If you run out of funds, then you have to wait for waiver priority. So if you can bid $.01, your higher than $0 bid.

its over on yahoo. Yahoo has some really good software if you have not used it before, do a mock draft. but its pretty easy. That draft is set for saturday aug 31 6:30 pst

If you want to play, send me a PM and I will send you the join link. Currently 6 slots are filled. I am posting this here and on klov. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

In my fantasy, the Patriots don't even make the playoffs this year.

all I can say is tuck rule. brady fumbled.

the best part of fantasy football, you wont even care if your team is out of it. As long as you win the FF playoffs.

hopefully it works out. so far the league has 7 players of 12 players.

Here is the join link to anyone who wants to play.

Is Kyler Murray the new Russell Wilson? Interesting to see him ranked QB 13 above Brady QB 15 on ESPN.

I just joined. New to PPR, but I've been in a standard Yahoo league for 4 years now.

ppr just changes the scoring balance from running back dominant to more balanced scoring with rb, WR, and te . yahoo lets you look at last years stats, so take a look at what players did last year and you will get a good idea as to how it differs. last year the top 25 is almost even split of qb, rb, and wr. good luck!

Just snagged the last spot. Looking forward to the draft!

#10 9 months ago

One more spot just opened. I gave it some thought and 50 clams is too rich for my blood. I'm average at best with fantasy and would rather buy a new ramp or something haha.

#11 9 months ago

In the past we've drafted 20 deep...how much support is there among the group to get that down to a more standard number this year? If the group likes 20 then I'm fine with it, but I'd much rather see it closer to 15

I tried to copy mffl rules as close as possible. this draft is 19 with an ir slot(dont think you can use ir until after the draft), so I dropped it one spot. Normally its 15(9 starters 6 man bench). So, I would agree a 9 player bench is 1 or 2 slots too much. In the nfl.com league I have it set at 17 (7 man bench) with the same number of starting slots. personally, I would agree its too high. the extra bench favors players who are good at drafting rookies/breakouts/backups/longshots.

also note that IR for yahoo is only used for people listed as O. Suspended or questionable players cant go on IR. If you have a guy on IR who's status changes from O to something else, you cant add/drop until you get your team size fixed.

when the league is full, we can put it to a vote to drop the bench size.

no problem. My buddy said he wants to play, but has not joined yet. He plays in the nfl.com league and tries, but is very busy with work until end of sept. Its competitive, but if you have played FF for more than year and you try, you have as good of a chance as anyone. I got lucky with head to head matchups and won pinside last year. but I also finished 5th in nfl league last year as I was unlucky in head to head matchups there.

Where can you get a new ramp for $50? I'm hoping to win so I can afford a new ramp

#15 9 months ago

I agree bench spots were too deep. If you have a player get hurt during the season there just aren't many options available in free agency.. every handcuff player is already on somebody else's bench.

#16 9 months ago

A lot of people are giving AB grief over wanting to wear his old helmet but have you seen the new one they are forcing him to use?

Any of you guys interested in a survival league? $20 entry, last year's payout was ~$20K.

League is back at 12. thanks for all who joined. Now its time to get all the funds in. so far funds are in from 10 of 12 (team names).

Funds are in for:
raiders
pindevil
mo money
Christopher's Team
JKs best team
All in the Ramily
Stephen G's Team
Tracy's Okay Team
mcluvin
Tyler’s team

funds are missing from:
Jeff W's Team
Jeff's Team

I added a poll within the league for possible changes to the team bench. log in to yahoo to make your vote by 8/28 11pm.

also, I hear there is an option to get yahoo to put out a random draft order prior the draft client selecting it 30 min before the draft. if you want to that early, I can give it a shot. I dont see this as a big deal. Yeah you mock draft at any slots already, and ever draft is different. after the first 8-10 pics all the mock drafts are probably useless/out the window.

Day late and dollar short. Let me know if something opens up.

#22 9 months ago

sorry, its locked and loaded now. one of my buddies grabbed the last slot. maybe next year.

#23 9 months ago

Are you folks ready? I suck at drafts. I at least did a couple of practice drafts this year though.

I'd wish you good luck Bill, but that means I lose. I'll just wish you lose just enough Can't believe I made it to the championship round from 6th place. Now all I have to do is beat a team starting Jackson, Ingram, Hill, Elliott & Ekeler

I was fortunate with my pics being healthy for the most part. Jackson was the best 9th round pic ever! Let’s just forget about tevin Coleman 5th, Brandon cooks 3rd, and baker mayfield 6th. It was an interesting year. I got lucky with Indy d scoring me 33. Your last minute change to Boone cost you about 25 points, but it would still not have been enough. Hopefully we can do it again next year. Got to go for the hat trick!

I also won klov league. It was a slugfest there. I missed first place regular season by a loss in week 12 by .12. Ended regular season in 4th place. But my boyz crushed the playoffs. I have been lucky enough to win there the last 3 out of 4.

I knew I needed 36 points and didn't think Jones would do it with a healthy Davante Adams. He almost did though. Boone was an x-factor hail mary. Unfortunately, he wasn't looking like a Dalvin Cook clone last night. Indy was a great pickup. Congratz again!

I'm down for next year. The only thing I didn't really like with our current format is I think 3 WRs are too many. Waiver wire pickings are slim with that many WRs. I almost think the TE position should just be eliminated. There are so few consistent TEs. It's a crapshoot for everyone else.

#28 5 months ago

Appreciate you taking the league over, but in no way is Yahoo better than MFL. Not in a million years IMO.

yeah, the talk shows were saying boone was was such a great matchup. I went with boone on a few teams. cost me 2 first place finishes.

I would agree with the IR its an added slot to drain players. But mffl was also 3 or 4 wr or 2 or 3 rb. so essentially the same as 3 wr 2 rb and a flex. We could drop ir or drop a bench spot if that what people want next year.

I just dont get the love for mffl. Can you tell me one thing that works well with it? the wavier system was broken. you had people just grabbing players with no restrictions for an hour and then it went to a waiver system?? you had the stupid rank and turn waivers. none of it was fair. Now if you like the slow draft, that is doable by email and doing the draft offline. Trade veto power should be with the players, not just the commish. No trading, wavier only would be a better option than 1 person deciding on trades. unless I am missing some feature to mffl, the only good thing was access to predraft info(statistical info on adp). But you dont need an account to access that data.
