    For those who participated last year (or the year before, but NOT last year), I have sent out MFL invites.  If you don't see it, let me know.

     Looks like I'm already set up.  I see your Venmo.

  2. Did I mention that I also run a 10 man league? The league has varied in numbers but last year we had 10. Our schedule this year will be play division opponents twice and non-division opponents each exactly once. (four playoff weeks.) First playoff week is like a play in game with two match ups. Then the next three weeks the remaining eight teams finish it off.

    I could understand week 14 bye, but there are teams on byes for each week up to week 16 so there will be some teams that will have players on bye during Fantasy Playoffs.


    Not sure if that is a strong enough argument against not having an extended regular Fantasy season.


    I currently have a poll for my league to find out the majority to increase or keep same.  If increasing the teams play another out of conference game.


    Which teams have a bye in weeks 15 and 16?

    Don't be the dweeb Commish who starts their playoffs in Week 14 this year, with four NFL teams on a bye that week.


    If you need to add a week to your schedule, but don't want to have one odd opponent, just add a "Play All" week (usually in Week 1), where the top half of the league in scoring gets a win, and the bottom half gets a loss.

    This one counts. Why would you want to play a playoff game with NFL teams on a bye?


    Good points on 10 man leagues, but in a 12 man with three divisions, everyone can play division opponents twice and every non division opponents once.

    Usually? What roller coasters do you ride that you don't ALWAYS make it out ok? :lol:


    We went to Disney earlier this year. I have a grandson that just qualifies to ride. When I ride with him the strap fits nicely over me but there's like a 8 inch gap for him. There were a few times when I thought he'd fly out.

    I'll be honest with you, I'm not really interested in this style of league, especially, if I'm only in a league or 2.  This style would be cool to add if it's 1 of 8 leagues you play in. 1 bad week and you're out. I like the idea of playing out an entire season, taking the good and bad and seeing how it goes. 

    I wouldn't play in a Guillotine league exclusively. But it's kind like climbing a roller coaster and not knowing what's going to happen when you fall. Hint, you usually make it out ok on a roller coaster.

  7. If some of you want in on mine, there's no reason that I couldn't join a fellow Viking fan in his league. I haven't done any Guillotine leagues.com yet. Been way too busy with some cheap BestBall leagues that have been drafting like forever now.

  8. Second Annual UFFDA Guillotine League

    1. 34 total teams: Two UFFDA Conferences (Ole & Sven). 17 teams per conference.
    2. Winner of each conference will play each other for the Overall UFFDA Guillotine Championship.
    3. Conference championship will be played Week 16.
    4. The Overall UFFDA Championship will be played Week 17.
    5. Guillotine Format:
    • Lowest team of the week gets cut and that team's players all enter the Free Agency.
    • Teams are then given until Wednesday 10:00 a.m. of each week to place a Blind Bid on players.
    • Teams have $1,000 blind bidding money to use for the season.
    • After waivers clear, players are first come first serve.

    • No additional roster adds after week 15.
    • If any two teams tie for last place following a week, the team with fewest year-to-date points is eliminated. If that doesn’t break the tie, the team with the lowest scoring starting player is eliminated. That tie breaker will continue to 2nd lowest, 3rd lowest until tie is broken.

  9. Most of my leagues score four points for passing TDs. We also score Six for passing TDs over 50 yards. Some leagues take points away for Ints. One of my leagues does that with 1 point per Int. (But RBs, WRs, and TEs also get 10 points for TDs over 50 yards.)


    I think one league scored 6 pts for Passing TDs and -2 for Ints many years ago.

    I don't think league size is relevant either. I think that's an emotional response by league mates.

    Unless you can play qb in the flex, you can only compare qbs to qbs and value comparison between them

     There's the reason for disagreement. You are comparing QBs to QBs. Maybe if you changed the argument to Kickers being Kickers that would apply. More points for passing TDs would obviously make the QB more important in relationship to other positions.

  11. MFL:


      1. How will the Week 12 Ravens-Steels schedule change effect my league?
    Answer: For week 12, the Ravens-Steelers game has been moved (again) to Wednesday at 3:40pm ET. 

    The NFL made a similar change back in week 5, but here is a reminder of how things will be handled this week: 

    The scores will count in the current week. So the upcoming Wed afternoon game will be included in week 12 scores. 

    IMPORTANT: Please do NOT change any of your league calendar or waiver settings. 

    * The system will still process your waiver events, but they will be delayed until about 2 hours after the Wednesday game is completed. 

    * In other words, there will be a waiver "blackout" from Monday night until Wednesday. Any waiver events that you have scheduled between the end of the Monday night game and the end of the Wed game will be postponed until after the Wed game is finished being processed. This will happen automatically, so you don't need to change any of your league settings or calendar events. 

    * About 2 hours after the Wed game is completed, the final scores and standings for week 12 will be calculated. It will take a couple of hours to process the final stats and generate the final results and update the standings, so plesae be patient after the game ends! All of the waiver processing that would normally have been done on Tuesday and Wednesday will be processed a couple of hours after the Wed game is done. 

    How will this affect your league? For most leagues that lock players on Sunday or Monday and then process waivers (blind bidding or regular waivers) on Wed nights, this postponed game will not change much. Everything will still operate like a normal week except that you'll have to wait longer for the final results. Then after the standings are updated on Wed (shortly after the game), your Wed night waivers will process as usual. 

    If your league normally does waiver processing on Tuesdays or Wednesdays during the day, then those transactions will be delayed automatically. You won't need to make any changes to your league calendar. The waivers will still process, but not until a couple of hours after the Wednesday game results are finalized.
