Seems like quite a few injury plagued seasons and busts in the top few rounds.  Including both categories: 1, 2, 3, 6, 11, 13, 15ish,17, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26ish, 27(not bad but ending poorly), 28ish, 29, 30ish. There are definitely quite a few who played well but just got injured. I have not compared directly to other years, but that is close to a 60-70% bust rate in the top 2-3 rounds.   Even removing the iffy ones leaves you at 50%.

I thought I had a gold mine with getting CEH at overall pick #18.  My 3rd pick (1st round) of Barkley hurts too.  

 

In my other league, I had McCaffrey and Kenny Golloday.  Train wreck...

COVID and injuries hurt my teams. The waiver wire significantly improved my chance for victories.

I am new to FF, but imo this makes things more interesting and emphasizes the skill of the ff owner as opposed to simply rewarding a great draft class each week.

 

ymmv.

I agree. While it's been frustrating as hell it's also been a unique challenge. I have teams where I flipped almost the entire roster.

Well I was on first place of the first ten weeks, so I was not able to pick anyone from ww for the most part, Slowey my team went from 5-0, to 6-1  to 7-7 (ty McCaffery).  Since I run my league I will change the ww next year from last place picks first to a rolling list each week.  Sour grape, perhaps, but seeing teams with bad drafts get rewarded each week unit they have a better record that me.  lol      strange but maybe better to lose week one.

IMO a rolling list rewards prioritizing while still permitting research and HW and dd to overcome an unlucky draft class or compete against lottery winning drafts.

FAAB. It’s so much better.

FAAB or rolling, either would be a major improvement on your system. I know the experts seem to think FAAB is fairest but it is slightly more strategy. Either system would be a major upgrade.

Agreed. Reverse standings is the worst.

+1. Changed our main league 2-3 years ago (yeah I know, late to the party) and have never looked back. It is soooo much better with increased strategy.

I agree and have suggested that change in our league, but people in our league hate change, anybody suggesting a change is suspected of trying to create an advantage for themselves. I am one of the two commissioners, we only change rules that are agreed to by a majority of our owners. I saw the post by somebody else saying they got screwed by this and are commish so they're going to change it next year, if the league owners allow that I suppose go ahead. Or maybe they won't be told even. (Not a good way to run a league in my opinion.)

 

FAAB may be best, but some leagues don't have owners willing to put in that extra time, and are happy with that.

Best ballers.  smh

Hey, I do about 11 dynasty leagues, and 2 best ball.   1 redraft, 1 dynasty. Sure, I dont look at them as often, but the dynasty one does have weekly faab, and as for the redraft, it's a fun way of looking at your early thoughts at the end of the season

 

In my dynasty BB rookie only draft (16 team), I got Gibson at 2.08 and james Robinson at 3.14
