I'm done with FF Fellas

Recommended Posts

I've not won a dime in over a decade.  All my teams are losing this year....again.  It's time I admit the obvious, and find something else to do.  It's been a lot of fun, but I think I'm done with this bullscat.

Yeah, you've pretty much been terrible all these years. 

 

At least you have those Tony Romo Super Bowl championships to fall back on.

You can't have good fantasy teams without sucky ones. Don't leave us.

No staying power. Not surprising I guess as you are a dallas fan. 

I haven't won a penny since 2005. But then I don't play for the

money, I play for the enjoyment of the competition with friends.

 

Suck it up and act like a Redskins fan instead of a dallas fan.

play dynasty. This way, when your season sucks, you can trade and rebuild.

First off, if you're in multiple leagues, drop down to 1. This way you can focus on 1 team, 1 set of FA's, one group of guys to make trades with, one WW etc...

 

Secondly, if you're this bad at it, Let me know when your draft is next year and I'll give you a hand with keepers, draft picks, over all draft strategy and weekly line up suggestions. Main thing is we'll bounce your ideas around first and see if your strategy overall is flawed and that why you're where you're at.

Don’t take it so seriously 

when things go bad or you’re frustrated just shut it off and live another day

 

and I agree about a dynasty league and having only one team.    It’s how I am setup.  Things go bad you make moves for next year

this is pretty decent advice..

 

i play in a few leagues but 2 of them arent really a concern and more "fun" with friends...i often forget to even pull guys on byes out of the lineup and hardly make any waiver moves(im 7-1 in one of them and fournette was my 1st rounder lol..i have rodgers and mahomes....the league is too easy and its not even really fun for me but my friends think im great at it since im always in the top 3 every year)

 

but i play in one high stakes league that is my sole focus....its the only thing i care about

 

my only advice is devote more time ot research and find new tools or ones that work for you....if you dont really have the time to devote to it then maybe you are right...maybe you should call it quits....luckily i have the time and can do alot of stuff while im at work if i want.....if the time ever came where i didnt have that luxury than i might call it quits too...because i woudlnt feel adequately prepared to invest money in it.....

 

ive been fortunate the last few years...as i feel im getting better and better and learning from mistakes.....ive finished in the money the last 4 years.....in fact ive finished in 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th(not in that order) the last 4....but ive had some down years where guys dont pan out or injuries rack up...it happens to everyone....its a humbling hobby for sure....

don't do this ^

I know my advice will annoy MANY of you, but FF is no longer about player research. Not really. Okay, I little. I identified Thielen and Ertz before they broke out and bought them in all three of my dynasty leagues at a low cost and that has been huge, but it didn't take much research.

FF is way more about valuations. It's more about economics than football. Analytics over eyeball test.

Granted, there are several posters here to do the research for me. Several of you have great info, especially those homers who listen to your local sports talk...and I thank y'all for your insights. But i'm going to highlight one poster in particular who crunches info better than most...

michaelredd9

When that dude posts, read it. I'd love to know what he does for a profession because I bet his job is absorbing a massive amount of data quickly and easily and poops out useful compressed answers that lead to real profits. He's probably some kind of global commodity buyer knowing where huge opportunities and risks are throughout the planet.

yeah opie...

 

thats called "research".....

 

michael probably does it.....youve just admitted he does it for you and you piggyback off him....i mean...i guess your advice is just "tail michaelredd"...and thats fine.....maybe michael is talented and giving you a short, condensed, answer.....but hes still analyzing stuff....hes "researching" stuff....what data in particular i dont know and cant say....but hes not just picking names out of a hat

what I mean is, most people don't need to spend hours and hours doing their own research like we all had to 20 years ago.

Sounds like CowboysDiehard is burned out, so spending all that time would be the opposite of what he needs. Cutting back to 1-2 leagues and using ADP data might be better for him. But I think leagues are won on trading more than anything else and that's economics, not football.

granted, my view is skewed because it's easier to do in dynasty and I haven't played redraft in years, so I'm probably wrong :)
