2013 Fantasy Football League

143 posts in this topic

I did a search and saw one was put together a few years ago. Figured I'd see how much interest there would be in putting together a Sand Trap league. Would more than likely be on Yahoo. Would use traditional scoring and rules.

I had given up hope on this. If it gains any more interest, we'll do it.

I'm in.. i was the winner from the league back in 2011.. it was all for fun tho, so didn't 'win' anything.

i would suggest we put up some sort of ante, b/c what happened was people stopped caring and never updated their weekly rosters etc.. it became kinda silly

I think there is a way to use PayPal through the Yahoo Fantasy League to create a pot. And I agree, bragging rights usually isn't enough to keep those who start poorly to continue playing throughout the season.

Took a year off from Fantasy Football last season and kind of missed it. So count me in.

I just set up the league on Yahoo. Need email addresses of those interested in playing so I can send invites.

Still not sure how we can do an entry fee or pot prize. Yahoo has "Pro" leagues with entry fees but they are public and don't allow invites to friends.

I'm already in several other leagues, but I may be interested depending on league size, rules, buy-in, etc.

Standard Yahoo rules. League size will be 10-14 hopefully. Buy-in is still in discussion. Looking into methods to use PayPal for buy-ins or some other way.

All my leagues have pretty customized rules and scoring. I'll have to check and see what "Standard Yahoo" rules/scoring are. Either way, I'm in if there's no more than 14 teams.

I believe Yahoo uses the same as ESPN and many others.

25 yds passing = 1 pt

Pass TD = 4 pts

10 yds rushing = 1 pt

10 yds rec = 1 pt

Rush and Rec TD = 6 pts

1 QB, 3 WRs, 2 RBs, 1 TE, 1 K, 1 DEF, 6 Bench spots

I'd also be willing to vote on adding a Flex spot for W/R/T instead of the 3rd WR

Yeah, I agree with the flex. All my leagues (with the exception of one) use the same starting lineups. Some have different bench sizes.

I'm also a fan of 6 points for passing TD, but not a huge issue.

What about waiver rules? 1 day rolling? Or is 2 standard?

2 days on waivers.

I like 4 pts on passing TDs because I think when you bump it up to 6 pts, it puts too much power in the QB position. You don't have WRs or RBs regularly scoring 3-5 TDs a game like you do QBs.

I'm alright with both of those. I prefer 1 day for waivers, but that's just because it makes it easier to pick up last minute players.

And as far as passing TD's, I think QB's should be the most important position in fantasy football. They're the most important in real football, and you only start 1 instead of 2 or 3 WRs. But like I said, either is fine with me.

Trust me. QBs still are incredibly important. I've played with these rules for 3-4 years now and I've often considered grabbing a top QB in 1st or 2nd round because of how big a difference they make in a team. As I'm sure you've experienced, there are games where guys like Brady or P. Manning will have you cursing the other team hahaha.

    • Longer or More Accurate?
      That doesn't make it a trick question. People aren't so lousy with accuracy that they're off 200 yards, but their tee shots travel 200 yards toward the target fairly often. The 10% thing helps to adjust them to the proper scale. I hit my driver 270, but I don't miss by 1/4 of that distance (67.5 yards). The wildest 100-shooting golfers are about +/- 10°. Their average is about 7°. 80-golfers are around 6°. 70 golfers probably about 5°. PGA Tour pros are around 3.5°. So 10% of those numbers are 0.7, 0.6, and 0.5°, with 0.35° for PGA Tour players. And yet, give each of them a full 1° (or  14% more accuracy for 100-golfers, 17% more accuracy for 80-golfers, 20% more accuracy for 70-golfers, and nearly 30% more accuracy for PGA Tour players… and they still come up short (or, at the PGA Tour level, only begin to break even). This means that the poll is biased, indeed, but in the opposite direction you think, @Marty2019. The poll could have said "would you choose 25% more accuracy or 10% more distance" and everyone (generalized to groups, not individuals) would STILL be better off choosing the distance. The only "trick" is that people value accuracy way, way too much, to the point where many are happy to take only a 10% improvement in accuracy while even a 25% improvement still can't account for the added value of driving the ball an extra 10% farther.
    • Pace Problem
      Do I think our GM and Pro would adopt what I am suggesting as a course policy? No.  
    • New shoes
      I am looking for a new pair pair of golf shoes.  Since I am a cheapskate trying to stay under $100. Any ideas I like to walk and need them to be waterproof. 
    • Pace Problem
      You (or your mangers) still don't seem to understand that catching another group and playing through them is slower for both groups (and for any groups following them) than if they are all simply required by policy to keep the pace.  The rules are just swell, but playing through should only be something that happens in cases with extenuating circumstances, not a regular habit.  The Rules of Golf were never intended to be used as an excuse for a chronic inability to keep pace with the course. When the course allows certain groups make a habit of playing so slowly that other groups overtake them and have to play through, then you have failed in establishing and maintaining an effective pace of play policy.  That policy is mired in a time warp from the era when courses were never full.  Those days no longer exist and different steps must be taken if a course is really serious about their pace of play.  It's apparent that your course is more concerned about the minority than they are about the majority.  I hope that doesn't eventually bite them in the behind.
    • Pace Problem
      Again, that's been our tactic for seven years, and has not generally worked.  There is not a suggestion made in this thread that we don't do or haven't tried to speed slow groups up.  Some do, but mostly slow groups stay slow. As a rule of thumb, marshaling 18 holes takes about an hour.  If you attempt to "teach" the first time around, and then discover that you're a bad teacher or the slow group is a bad student when you come back around, by the time you "enforce", you have lost half a round of golf and you have forced faster groups to play the slower group's pace. When I see a group going to 9 at 2 1/2 hours, I tend to say, 'Oh, shit." to myself, because I know we've lost the Pace and it's next to impossible to get it back until that group has left the course.  Sadly, because of staffing cutbacks, that's often the case.  When I say something to the GM or Pro like, "If you want a good pace, you have to be out there from the beginning," it is not received well. If, OTOH, our policy is Pace has Priority on the Course, let faster groups play through, and that is what they hear when they pay, and from the Starter, and that's what the sign in the carts' signholder says, they have no leg to stand on the first time the marshal comes by and sees groups piled up behind a slow group. Yeah, I know, it's different than what everyone's used to. But if you always do what you've always done, you always get what you've always got.
