Lineup question for tonight

Recommended Posts

I'm up by 1 point and my opponent is already done. I have the Buffalo kicker and defense going. Should I sit them in case they get negative points? I don't think they will though.

Like I mentioned when you asked in my thread -

 

Nope, play it through legitimately. No way they get negative points!  Seal the deal more completely and definitively.  Don't forget about stat corrections either.  Imagine losing by less than a point or so, because you sat your kicker/ defense!?  That would suck and be the true definition of karma!

 

Congrats!

That's good advice right there!

Yeah I’m actually cool with sitting a Defense in cases like this BUT the odds of getting negative points between the defense and the kicker has to be extremely low. You should be fine.

How does a kicker earn negative points?  Fake punt/pass gets picked?  Fumble the snap would be on special teams, not kicker, no?

 

Wondering...

 

Anyway, good luck to the OP

His league could penalize a kicker for a missed FG or EP.

Yeah our league takes a point away for a missed field goal. That’s ESPN standard I guess because as commissioner I didn’t set it that way intentionally.
