  3. So I was the commissioner of a work redraft league one year, and we had 8 teams make the playoffs. The first round was 1 v. 8, 2-7, 3-6, and 4-5. But it was a bracket style playoff, so it did not automatically reseed the highest ranked team vs. the lowest ranked team. So we wound up with 5 v. 8 and 2 v. 3. I wanted to manually reseed, so that #2 played #8 and #3 played #5, but after checking the settings, I realized that I could not have selected such an option at the beginning of the year. Furthermore, I had never discussed such an event with the rest of the league, so I just let the system dictate, instead of overriding it myself. Without disclosing it to the group ahead of time, I just felt it improper to intervene.Seeds 5 and 8 were happy, but seeds 2 and 3 were not. If I had manually reset, seeds 5 and 8 would have been upset, while 2 and 3 would have been happy. There wasn't really a perfect solution.What do you think I should have done? Should I have manually reset or not?
  4. Let's say the commissioner of a dynasty league discovered that someone tanked during a few games at the end of the season (Year 2 of the league) to get a better draft pick in this year's upcoming rookie draft. There aren't any explicit anti-tanking rules and the way the rookie draft order is calculated for the upcoming draft has been posted since the league started (i.e. it has been posted and disclosed to the owners for over two years). The owner that tanked had a screenshot of a text message where he and the commissioner discussed starting inactive (bye week, injured, suspended, free agent, retired) players. The tanking owner asked if it was something he could do, and the commissioner said that "if you don't have anybody else to start, then yes, but if you just don't want to, then I don't know." The tanking owner then pointed out that the site did not prevent someone from starting inactive players, to which the commish responded "Cool. Yeah." The tanking owner understood this as a grant of permission to start such inactive players, and a pro-tanking position in general. The commissioner claims that the owner never explicitly asked about tanking, and as it turns out, the commish is actually strongly against tanking (something that was not known until now). The commissioner collected dues for the upcoming season (the season for which the rookie draft will take place), but he did not like the fact that somebody tanked. On the other hand, the tanking owner had a screenshot of conversation where the commissioner says that the order of the draft "must" be the way that it is currently posted in the league's bylaws. However, the commissioner still decided to change the draft order regardless, because he is really anti-tanking. He changed one of the tiebreakers from total points scored by starting lineups, to total points scored by each team's optimal lineups. This rule change actually violated the league's bylaws, as he was supposed to announce such a change on the league's internal boards and allow for a review period where teams could vote on the rule. The rule was not posted on the boards, and therefore it was not reviewed or voted on. For what it is worth, the tanking owner has played in leagues where tanking has occurred, specifically, leagues where teams were allowed to bench their star players in order to lose a game (to get themselves a better matchup in the first round, a better draft pick, etc.), or to bench players in order to secure a win (prevent someone from scoring negative points). However, the commissioner has never seen this tactic in 10+ years of playing. The tanking owner also believes that tanking happens in real life, but the commissioner is of the firm opinion that it does not. On top of that, the tanking owner has hard evidence that tanking happened in Year 1 of the league, but the commissioner is unaware of this. It is also worth noting that in the final game of the season, the commissioner did spot the tanking and after a brief exchange, the tanking owner agreed to set a new lineup because, although he thought it was fair game, he just didn't want to "start any drama" among the league members. During this exchange, the tanking owner showed the commissioner the text message exchange they had about starting inactive players. After receiving the message, the commissioner said that he was fine with people starting weak lineups, just not inactive players. So maybe the commish is more anti-inactive players than he is anti-tanking. Many league members complained about the tanking owner during the last week of the season because it either affected their chances of securing a top draft slot, or their playoff hopes. Some owners are upset that it wasn't caught earlier, because other games where the owner tanked are now in the books. The commish and vice-commish apparently agreed to create different tie-breakers for this coming season, but never updated the rulebook or disclosed such a change to the rest of the league. Even so, the commish still thought that he was perfectly within his rights to implement the unposted order now. He is really concerned with the integrity of the league. But as of right now, there is no rule against tanking, the league has never discussed tanking, and the tanking owner thought it was fine based off of previous experiences, his own self-interest, and the text message exchange he had with the commish. The commish doesn't think an anti-tanking rule is needed, nor is one needed to tell people that they must only start active players each week. Considering all of this, do you think the commissioner made a mistake? Was it wrong for him to unilaterally implement any "corrective" measures after dues were paid? Please explain below.
  5. Hi All, I am curious about some unique and challenging league scoring and roster formats that you have seen in your leagues. For me, the most interesting and challenging format included 2 QB, 2DST, and 3 IDP. I have created a free custom yahoo league with the same rules. Feel free to use the link below and join my league. Once you see how cool this format is, I think you will fine the standard format boring. https://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/f1/1010107/invitation?key=6c8578eb4c8d04b4&ikey=f5fcc9377e142aee

  8. I am the commissioner of a 8 team, 3 keeper, $20 league with guys I know. The league is going on year 5, and someone finally decided they didn't want to play anymore. What I should do with the team without an owner is what I want input on. So this team finished last in the league. Before the season was over they traded away first overall pick in next years draft. They got a 2nd and a 6th round pick for it. The team has 1 maybe 2 keepers for this season. That being Amari Cooper and Kurt Cousins. I found another person I know that wants to join the league but doesn't want to just give away $20 basically because the team he would take on is a dumpster fire right now. Does anyone have any suggestions for me as to what I can do to make it semi fair for him to join? Or does anyone have any suggestions on what he could do as far as trading later draft picks to teams that have more that 3 keepers? Thanks, Chad

  11. Live Yahoo draft

    I'm the commissioner of a yahoo league and to save money and headaches of getting a board and stickers I decided to do an online draft. I've never done an online draft but I still want us all to get together and draft our players using our phones or computer. Do you guys know if there is a way I can project a live board onto the TV without revealing my players that I'm watching to potentially draft?
  12. Draft strategy help

    I play in a 10 team commissioner 6pt for passing TD league with 1qb 2rb 2wr 1te 1 flex (RB,Wr,TE). Qb scoring is pretty generous. A Qb simply throwing for 300 yards amasses 19 pts. This occurs because of yardages bonus triggers at 255 and 300 yards. In a league where having a great Qb (num 1 Qb has finished on champs team last 3 years) would you consider Brady or Rodgers in round 3 after already grabbing a Wr and RB or whatever? Thanks
  13. I want to add the superflex position to better utilize available QBs and make the game a little more interesting, but I don't want to overinflate points and make the QB way more important than any other possible position (e.g. taking a QB3 over an RB2). I adjusted some of the scoring rules to nerf the scoring of QB slightly but this is new to me, so looking for advice. If you see anything else in my scoring setup that is a big red flag or will cause problems let me know. (NOTE: I also decided to add sever penalties for misses PAT and close FGs to add some significance to the Kicker position).
  14. Hello everyone! I am running a 2 QB Auction league over on nff.com.. It is on Sunday Aug 27th at 5pm EST This is a FREE league. We have family and friends in the league and looking for more owners. Expanded auction budget to assist with the 2nd QB slot. Tons of fun, bunch of points and hope you will join. http://fantasy.nfl.com/league/4881813 You can also search the league via the custom search feature on nfl.com fantasy. League name is : 2 QB Auction (original I know!)
  15. So I am the commissioner of a 12 team fraternity league. Everyone is very personally connected and sees every member frequently. The league was created two years ago for a test run and then I took it over last year with a ton of changes (standard-> .5ppr, nfl->espn, free -> buy in, no reward -> trophy and jersey, no keepers -> keepers). This year we will be keeping most of the changes, however there was an issue with keepers that will lead into my main question. We never decided how keepers would be kept (huge oversite I know). We didn't think about it until the off season, and then the voting for how it would be done (2 round penalty VS. just keep 2 then draft the rest of your team) was controlled entirely by bias. Owner with Mccoy and T.Y. wants to keep them and then draft, the guys who drafted D Murray and Gordon in the 5th and 6th want round penalties, etc. So after much discussion we decided to not do keepers for this year and then vote on which system to use for keepers pre draft this year. Now during the season, when keepers were still going to happen, one member of the league was mathematically eliminated from playoffs before our trade deadline (thanksgiving) hit. He then sold off Dak Prescott to our Taco for a 4th round pick, and traded Doug Baldwin to me for a 4th round pick and Jarvis Landry. Both of those trades were made with intentions of keeping the teaded for players. I ended up going on to win the league, in no small part due to Baldwin putting up 30 points in the finale. The new Dak owner did not make the playoffs. The player who traded away the players for future picks got 12th (last) place. With that backstory, here is the issue. Since we are not doing keepers, and those trades were made specifically for keepers, there is a thought by myself and the new Dak owner (as well as some bystanders) that the picks should not be granted to the last place finisher. However the last place finisher is obviously strongly opposed to that, as he got last place (in his mind) because of these trades he made (the punishment for last place is the league votes on a Name change for the last place team). He does not want to pay league fees unless he is awarded his picks for the trades (as they went through the 24 hour vetoed process and passed). I am not sure what to do, and obviously I can not decided without some bias. I have considered not taking picks from anyone and giving the last place team a compensatory 4th round pick (where he picks an extra player at the end of the 4th in between the turn). Or just giving him my pick (as his player essentially won me the league) and giving the Dak owner their pick back. However, I am not sure what the best course of action is. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for reading TLDR: League was doing keepers, is no longer. During time when keepers were happening 2 teams traded 2017 4th round picks for players from the same team. One of those teams won the league. Since no longer doing keepers, teams want their picks back (wanted to keep players they traded for). Not sure what to do.

  17. Ok, for free agents, my league has always been a "first come, first served" no waiver time, no waiver priority league. I know it's not everyone's cup of tea but it's worked for us. This year we are voting in FAAB. I'd like to use FAAB so everyone has a chance to bid on any player that someone tries to pick up from free agency. But, I don't want any type of waiver priority. I want anyone to be able to pick a player and place a bid at anytime. So it's still "first come, first served" but a more level playing field with us using FAAB. I've tried setting it up this way on Yahoo, but all of their FAAB options have some type of priority waiver list setting attached to it. Does any other site offer what I'm looking for ? Thanks man advance, I greatly appreciate the help ! Also, on yahoo I didn't see where it told you how much FAAB you get, or the option to change it.
  18. This happens to every fantasy owner each year. Your team scores the 2nd or 3rd most amount of points, but unfortunately you lose your matchup because you faced the #1 scoring team that week. Requesting feedback on this idea. The league operates on a "points" system. Week by week, if you win your matchup, you earn 1 point. In addition, the top 4 teams also earn extra points (#1 scorer - 1 extra point, #2 - 0.75 points, #3 - 0.5 points, #4 - 0.25 points). Therefore, each week you can earn up to 2 points. For example, if your team was the #2 scoring team, but lost to the #1 scoring team, you still earned 0.75 points. Playoffs are decided by the teams who have earned the most "points" To summarize: 1) you earn one point for winning the matchup 2) top 4 teams are awarded extra points. Thoughts?
  19. This year, my friends and I are finally making the transition to Dynasty league instead of standard. Would love to hear some ideas on a few different aspects of running a dynasty league. 1) what is the best roster setting? Keeper - how many players should each team be allowed to keep at the end of the year? 2) IDP - like it, love it, or hate it? 3) other notes I should be aware of?
  20. I've had the following trades vetoed by the league this year: A: Melvin Gordon/Gio Bernard (before he was out touching Hill) FOR Lamar Miller/Doug Martin (injured, no timetable) B: Frank Gore/Devante Adamas FOR Le'Veon Bell (Guy had two glaring holes in his RB2 and WR2 slot). Is it fair for them to veto my trades if no collusion was found and both teams were trying to improve based on their own perceived value of the players? We are all playing under the same conditions, with the same people, yet I manage negotiate better trades than other owners and get punished. This league is starting to feel a little like socialist fantasy football where everyone gets a trophy and everything is exactly fair. Giving league owners the power to anonymously veto can be grossly abused in my opinion. Thoughts on the matter, it's really pissing me off?
  21. Pryor at QB but slotted at WR - points?

    Playing Pryor in the WR slot - news is reporting he may be QB. In the NFL Fantasy leagues, or any for that matter...do you get points for passing yards and then the rushing yards he rushes?
  22. Full ppr KR 10yds= 1pt. PR 10yds= 1pt. TD=6 Fuller has been returning kicks. Will Cooks rebound? I have QB Flacco/Palmer RB L. Miller, Gore, G. Bernard, K. Dixon, B. Powell, D. Washington WR Fuller, Green, Landry, J. Brown, R. Cobb TE Pitta, Bennett I'm 2-2 in the league.
  23. Ethical Dilemma

    Hi so this is a question I have on something I did as commissioner and I want to know if you guys think this is okay or if I should undo it. I offered a trade to someone (Amari Cooper and Ryan Matthews for Ezekiel Elliot and Chris Johnson). I notified the league to let them know they could veto it. After about 2 hours I decided I wanted to keep Cooper since he is on my favorite team and I just vetoed the trade even though no one else did. I want to know if I should have to reoffer the trade back. Another option which I would prefer if you guys think I should offer it back is that I would like to include Brandin Cooks in the trade instead of Amari Cooper even though he is ranked higher just because I like Cooper since I am a Raiders Fan. Let me know what you think. Thanks
  24. Who to start?

    Who to start 1 point PPR 1 QB Winston 1 RB Elliot, white, Jennings 2 WR M Jones, Hilton, Wallace, Landry, Tyrell Williams 1 TE Reed 1 Flex
  25. Drop Sterling Sherpherd?

    Should I drop Sterling Sherpherd or Allen Hurns in favor on picking up Tajae Sharpe and Will Fuller? I lost Keenan Allen and we use a FAAB so I'm dedicating a lot of cash for these two players.
