  1. This nationwide league is like no other league. It is sophisticated and layered. You can develop and employ strategies at multiple facets of the game. I am looking for fantasy football fans who want the most life-like experience of running a football club. Teams have 16 starters, 7 offense, 7 defense, kicker, and a punter plus 12 bench slots. (no superflex, 1 QB, you know like an actual team on the field). Email me at hmckitt@rams.colostate.edu for more questions.
  2. All leagues below are free dynasty formats. Please be active and attentive if you’re considering joining. Other non traditional formats cooking up on a daily basis. https://sleeper.app/i/0d3LOQZ4la35 basic Superflex league. No scary scoring bonuses. Straightforward Superflex, PPR, multiple flex league with IDPs. Free to join. Draft when full, slow draft. https://sleeper.app/i/LL59LnwdEVbX basic fantasy League. PPR, Multiple flex with IDPs. No scoring bonuses. Draft when full. Slow draft. Free to join. https://sleeper.app/i/mN2Y18xkkL5w defensive centric league. Offense is nerfed, IDPs score the points. Non traditional setup. May not be for everyone, but if you want to step up that IDP game this is the place to do it. Free to join. https://sleeper.app/i/zJl14N3WbY6o crazy scoring structure. Non traditional league. Lots of scoring categories, scoring bonuses abound, deep rosters, ppr, multiple flex spots & IDPs. This isn’t for everyone, the format is very different and frightens off more people by the day. Draft when full, slow draft. Can you hang? Probably not.
  3. TL/DR: Every league has a core of solid committed players. Let's start using those to patch broken leagues and create new ones. First off, there are many, many forums and resources for finding new league members or finding a new league to join. The thing is, none of these resources do much to help solve the problems that come with bringing in a new member or joining another league as an outsider—and it's not their fault. The main issues are as follows: Creating: You cannot expect a league of strangers from around the interwebs to magically form a bond that fosters a lasting league for years to come. It can happen, but it's very rare and there is almost always turnover. Joining: You cannot expect to join an established league as an outsider and find a long term bond. Each league has it's own personality, roots and expectations—and while you may be a perfect fit, more often than not you'll be plugging a hole and nothing more. Acquiring: Similarly to the above, you shouldn’t expect a new member you’ve recruited to magically assimilate. Again, there are exceptions to all three of these problems, but more often than not open spots will become open again in the future. The healthiest leagues are competitive ones. Leagues become competitive for some combination of the following reasons: - The members are all well connected, typically including a group of long time friends or people who have played together for years already. - The members have similar expectations for communication (I've played in amazing leagues who never speak to each other, as well as the opposite. It depends on the expectation from the outset). - There is a common skill level throughout the league. - Everyone involved feels properly incentivized by the pot (budgets match up). - The league rules are clear and agreed on. Unfortunately, what the vast majority of fantasy leagues actually look like is as follows: A core group of fully bought in die hards who meet the above criteria + a handful of fairly disengaged members who don't really fit the bill for a number of reasons—but can't be removed because they're a friend, or family, or original member — but mostly, bad league members are kept around because replacing them sucks. It's an unreliable process, people like the sentimental aspect of keeping the original group in tact, and again. It sucks. My solution is as follows: Create a common service/practice of matching healthy “cores” with others, thus creating leagues with batches of committed players who are already comfortable with each other. The result would be an influx of new and/or revitalized leagues comprised of committed, involved, competitive players who not only already know and trust the play style of a few familiar members, but can rely on the rest of the league knowing and trusting each other as well. Below are the links to use the beta - this is pretty simple, operated through google forms & sheets. After you fill the form out, I will add it to the public sheet. Once this populates you will be able to sort through options and find some groups that match. We will reach out to each other via email. Once you have found a match, you will be able to check the box marked "Match Found" and I will relegate your group to the bottom and mark them as completed.

We can test this out for a couple weeks and then iterate.
  4. Who would yall take as a keeper in a full point PPR league? We have it set where the first round of the draft is automatically our keeper then we start on the draft from there. Now I also have the option to not take a keeper and pick someone first round. I have my team below from this year. I was thinking about either Lamar or Henry.
  5. half point PPR in my fantasy championship game against the league No. 1 Who should I start? Tyler Lockett or Courtland Sutton? The matchups both seem good, with Sutton’s a little better in the broken Detroit Lions. Lockett has more upside in my mind, but is also more likely to be a bust. Sutton likely to get a lot of targets, but Drew Lock is more iffy of a QB than Russell a Wilson. Tyreek Hill is my WR1. I flexed DJ Moore and sadly he is now out with a concussion... wish I would have played someone else. Outcome was almost the same as if I left Derrick Henry as my flex... Thank you in advance!
  6. Thinking Mostert , my team is better than my opponents so thinking he’s got the safer floor .
  7. Championship RB Help!

    Need to choose 2 RBs (set on 1 though) between this bunch. Standard league with 5pt bonus for a 100yd rushing or receiving game. Leonard Fournette - @ ATL (starting) Le'Veon Bell - PIT DeAndre Washington - @ LAC Patrick Laird - CIN Kerryon Johnson - @ DEN (if he plays). Rest of my team is pretty stacked, but I'm playing against L. Jackson, soooo yea.
  8. Blew out my opponent 141-113 in semi-finals. Made it to the super bowl, just to find out the guy I play this week scored 170 pts in a Non-ppr 2-wr, 2-rb 10 team league (Lamar Jackson 38 pts 😞) Considering I lost mike Evans and dalvin cook to injuries, i don’t stand much of a chance...but if you were in my shoes, what would you do? Add/drop, block opponent... thank you for all the advice this season and best of luck to y’all. Merry Christmas and happy new year! My team on the right (Drew brees)
  9. Pick an RB2

    Sup bros? Who should I start as my RB2 this week: Mack or Michel? Or...DeAndre Washington? I don't think Jacobs is going to play the whole game. Thanks!
  10. Tannehill vs Texans Or Prescott vs Rams i realize tannehill has the better matchup but maybe a shootout in Dallas? thoughts?
  11. PPR- who to start? No Chark this week in JAX Aj seems super boom or bust John Brown 3 tough weeks in a row now at Pit thoughts?
  12. I don't even know how I made it this far with this Bad News Bears crew, but in my PPR league, I have to decide on 2RB and a Flex: Laird vs NYG M. Sanders vs Wsh Mostert vs. Atl Montgomery vs. GB
  13. i know it seems obvious, but Mahomes is not putting up the numbers he used to.
  14. Is it crazy to bench Lamar tonight? my biggest worry is they go up early and Ingram gets a lot of runs and Lamar sits quickly, only giving like 120 passing 1 td and 50 rushing. Am I nuts?
  15. McCaffrey Fournette Ekeler Singletary - Buffalo Lindsay Start 2
  16. RB dilemma with TNF

    Standard league with 5 pt bonus for 100+ yd game. At RB I need to make a decision for one spot: between Le’veon Bell, D. Washington, P. Laird, Darwin Thompson, and David Johnson (Prob just need to drop this guy.) The question is: Do I play it “safe” with Le’Veon Bell tonight, or wait out more news to see if D.Washington gets the start (with P. Laird as my backup option if Jacobs starts)? If Jacobs was definitely out I’d be starting Washington, no questions. Rest of my team is loaded, but I’m playing against CMC/Russel Wilson combo. Thanks in advance for anyone’s help.
  17. Last minute help needed because I cannot decide for the life of me this week! Which QB, 2 WR, 1 RB (besides D. Henry), FLEX, and D/ST to start? I’m in 0.5 PPR, here are the players I have: QB: Kirk Cousins (leaning based on match up), Josh Allen RB: Derrick Henry (Must start), Saquon Barkley, Todd Gurley, James Conner (out) WR: Tyler Lockett, Tyreek Hill, DJ Moore, Jarvis Landry, Courtland Sutton TE: Travis Kelce K: Greg Zeurlein D/ST: Pittsburgh, Philadelphia My current thoughts: whoever I don’t start will probably blow up on my bench because that just how these things go sometimes!! Def starting Derrick Henry. Helppp! Thanks in advance.
  18. Start/Sit Help QB and RB

    Two start/sit questions. Standard League with 5 pt bonuses for 100yd rushing/receiving and 300yd passing. QB: I have a Brees/Thomas stack in this league, but they obviously have a tough matchup against San Fran. Do I start Tannehill in a great matchup against Oakland to spread my risk against San Fran or do I roll with Brees. RB: Had L. Bell and need to start someone in his place: Darwin Thompson, Benny Snell, David Johnson (ha! just kidding, why is he still on my roster?) I'm pretty positive I am starting Snell.
  19. Let me know if I got the right guys in please. Roster is attached.
  20. russ/cmc/jacobs/ thomas/ boyd/ keenan/ ertz/ coleman/ lutz or mahomes/ cook/ zeke/ lockett/ diggs/ parker/ jcook/ chubb/ gay which team would u rather play against if I tank this week I play the first team, if I dont I just play normal I play the bottom team. Is it worth tanking or not?
  21. Drop Cooks?

    Is Cooks worth holding on to through the playoffs? I have Julio, Crowder, Pascal and Golden Tate as my other receivers. As far as flex goes, I have Hunt, Guice, Jamaal Williams or Howard. I am thinking of dropping Cooks for Snell or Darnold. I have Brees at QB. Any advice helps!!!
  22. Choose 1 only??

    Which ONE FLEX do you start?? Full PPR League. RB Chris Carson (@LAR, OPRK 11th) RB James White (vs. KC, OPRK 32nd) WR Cooper Kupp (vs. Sea, OPRK 16th) WR Tyreek Hill (@NE, OPRK 1st) I'm already starting Barkley, Fournette, Edelman.
  23. Should I get Guice in my lineup? If so, for who?
