    This is a thread for all those fans of fantasy football to discuss their leagues and teams so they will quit posting about it in the official NFL thread.

    #2 2 years ago

    I would discuss but Im sure the guy I’m playing in the semis is lurking here.

    #4 2 years ago

    I'm in 3 leagues. Two of them are family leagues (my wife's families). Hilariously, one of them is run by her dipshit cousin that has embezzled everyone's $10 buy-in for the last several years, and changed the tiebreaker last year to steal the title from his own sister. I'm just in it for the entertainment at this point.

    The other family league is a whole $5 for the year. I tried to get them to up the ante at least a little, everyone else agreed that $5 was enough. They're the type of people that think bananas are ' a little spicy'.

    The only league I really care about is a keeper league made up of my college friends and my family.

    I draft pretty similar teams in all of my leagues every year. Most years it pays off. This year? I'm already eliminated in every one of them..

    #5 2 years ago

    I am more interested in everyone's Fantasy Team name..... Give me something to laugh at.....

    I will start, when I was heavy into fantasy, my main team each year was- "Ed Gein's Furniture Company". If you laughed at that, shame on you.

    If you know any long suffering Lions fans then you probably have heard some Kool Aid references.

    My avatar is the Guyana flag and team name is:
    Drink Kool-Aid With Jim Jones

    Last year 1st round pick Kamara, this years Zeke; getting fucked every time.

    I'd say "at least I made the payoffs" but I need 6 from my D and 9 from my kicker to get in the fucking 30s...might be a Playoff low.

    The sad thing is, I could probably guess your lineup.

    Casue you had the same draft order ?

    #12 2 years ago

    I've done pretty well in fantasy since getting into it 4 years ago. If you are into stats, it is a whole lot of fun. I recommend a little bit of luck and a practice draft or 2. Now where the F is Kermit Mahomes??? You are starting Justin Herbert? That f'er cost me the playoffs in my other league.

    #13 2 years ago
    Quoted from mcluvin:

    Good thing you didn't have a bye; fun!

    #14 2 years ago
    Quoted from TheLaw:

    I still hate bye weeks. I really would rather play through. I sucked in my other league this year. Brady's up and down play killed me in that league. Even then, I still almost made the playoffs...

    #15 2 years ago

    I’m in the playoffs! Pretty awesome considering my first two draft picks, McCaffrey and Ekler, have been on the bench most of the season. Crazy season, a lot of free agent transactions. Good luck all!

    I'm in a 5 year dynasty league, each year I change my team name, this year it's the Pandanmics. I tried to combine my name (Dan) with Pandemic. Not sure it was successful!

    The Dandemics seems like a missed opportunity....

    #19 2 years ago

    So I'm in a 5 year dynasty league, this is our second year. The yearly cash winnings isn't very much, all the cash is going for the final 5th year and it's going to be a lot, over 5K for the winner. It's made my strategy so much different.

    No his team is loaded. And he fucking cheats.

    #21 2 years ago

    With Brees back and Michael Thomas out, Kamara should get back to his 30 ppg self, at least that’s what I’m hoping.

    Which usually means there's an injury coming

    #23 2 years ago

    Any one playing in their Finals this week? I’m going for back to back championships, which would be a first for me in any league.

    Note to self, if I make it to the playoffs, don't procrastinate on my waiver bids and do camp out on NFL.com all Sunday morning. Lost out on the championship round by a little over 4 f'n points. My opponent was on top of his shi*. I was not. I'll be fighting for 3rd. Good luck Kermit!

    Did he pick up Pollard?

    #28 2 years ago
    Quoted from Jaybird815:

    Yeah, and scooped up Fournette too. I was gonna put in a waiver claim for Fournette and would have got it, but just had too much BS going on and didn't get to it. I just had too many players underperform. Rams D got 5 points. Who would have figured that? The 2 players on the bench I considered playing? Either one would have won it for me. Oh well, at least I lost to someone who was trying...

    #29 2 years ago

    How do your waivers work? Firet come first serve? How much they cost?

    #30 2 years ago

    Our league is Waiver wire Wednesday night, tumbler. Then it’s first come first serve. $5 a transaction.

    #31 2 years ago

    Wtf does that mean...like tumbler randomly picks whom gets it?
    So many diff'rent ways to do this shit

    You and I had the 2 best teams...and we both lost this weekend. And I lost my .36 of a point. ughhh

    Tumbler is if you use the wire on Wednesday night you go to the back of the line, instead of worst record is first in waiver order.

    Gotcha. We've always done first come, the idea of not being aloud to add/drop during games is weird.

    Ours locks at noon central kickoffs

    Quoted from Jaybird815:

    Yeah I've always seen it as someone that actually watches the games should have an advantage. It's the fun of watching a knee blow-out and quickly rushing to the add/drop page
    Funny to think when I started half the leagues were TDs only, and now the scoring can be overly detailed to insanity.

    #38 2 years ago

    I'm happy to report I won my dynasty league's toilet bowl championship and get first draft pick next season. Once I realized halfway through the season I couldn't possibly win and end up in the money (which isn't much until the final year), I tanked my team to get in the toilet bowl, then beat the other teams there to get first draft pick. We have 3 years left in our 2 QB dynasty league, Trevor Lawrence may just be the QB I need in year 5 to have a shot at winning it all.

    You should see our D/ST, haha

    Oh yeah I can't stand that shit. If you can't reasonably look at a couple games and roughly know your match up scores it's pointless to me. In theory, losing by .46 points is a good "ahhhhhh shiiiiit" kinda fun thing but it's just too much for me.
    But I can see it both ways.

    #41 2 years ago

    What fantasy tools/websites/podcasts/etc. do you use to up your game?

    #42 2 years ago

    For the league we have used CBS sportsline since 2002, far from perfect and not cheap, but it kind of has our history imprisoned
    I've been using Draftshark for a long time, but I think it's finally time to move away from them as I haven't won in a long time.
    I do miss the days of have a minimum wag job and just spending 8 hour chunks reading magazines...ha magazines.

    #43 2 years ago
    Quoted from TheLaw:

    Me also - early on they were a huge advantage - however the internet really caught up to them and some of their picks almost seem blatantly incorrect. I still use them but do not rely on them as much. I liked 4for4 but fantasyguru is my go to now.

    Yes they cannot evolve form themselves, stuck on a player year after year for no reason...which is why I've gotten OBJ super "late" according to them and wasted a roster spot 2 years in a row

    That's a great call - once they make they mind up they are not getting off the player. I took him also this year and what a disaster. The one thing I like is the fanduel prices and points/$ ratios. I don't use those exclusively but they are helpful to find values for DFS.

    #46 2 years ago

    I watch the games and read lots of analysis. Fantasy Pros has some great tools I like to use, but they will actually make your moves for you if you choose to let them. I don't like that. It's practically cheating.

    #47 2 years ago

    Well Kamara is guaranteeing lots of fantasy teams 7th place tonight....

    #48 2 years ago

    Kyler Murray or Jalen Hurts?

    #49 2 years ago
    Quoted from Lethal_Inc:

    Kyler Murray or Jalen Hurts?

    I slightly lean Murray, but 2 great options.

    #50 2 years ago

    Off to a strong start in my finals with Kamara.
