Re: Snake Draft vs Auction Draft for Dynasty Startup

Drafts are fun, and watching the picks get traded around during the draft is also entertaining. But put me in the auction camp as the preferred format. I would like to add that doing a league with rookie auction but no salary caps is by far the best I have ever played. In this format if you win a pl...

Re: Narratives most likely to Flip this Season

Got a good chuckle from the CC veto comment! :-)

Narrative: Cleveland is in position to turn things around.
Reality: It is still the same old Cleveland.

To be honest, I am not sure how many people really believe the Browns have any hope this season.

Re: salary cap auction league help

Yup, auctions are a lot of fun. I much prefer them to drafts, and hope you have a lot of fun with this as well. When it comes to developing a strategy or making predictions, there are some things that crudely translate from draft to auction. Since this topic comes up every so often, I'm going to pas...

Re: Barkley or JuJu/OJ+

Does the league have 10 or 12 teams? Since the defensive players score a healthy amount, I assume several are selected in the 1st and 2nd rounds of your drafts, no? That increases the value of the 2.06 pick over how it is typically valued. I don't play IDP any more, but based on MFL's recent drafts ...

Re: Goff or Jimmy GQ

Jimmy G is a fine choice. But I don't think there is an incorrect answer in this case. In 3 or 4 years we will look back with perfect clarity and claim that the decision should have been obvious. But, these two players are close enough in talent and situation that I don't think it comes down to anyt...

Re: Andrew Luck resumes throwing regular NFL footballs

Like most of us, I want to see Luck return to form. Football is better when guys like Luck are at their best. I am not very optimistic about it, however. The NFL doesn't have many data points to work with regarding quality QBs recovering from labrum surgery. On the other hand, MLB does have and the ...

Sorry Skip, but the words I fear most are:

Re: Retro-draft League Concept

It's so uncommon to see fresh ideas like this. This concept for setting up a league has some real potential and would be fun for veteran dynasty people. I'd like to recommend a slight tweak to your system. If I read your outline correctly, you are starting the 2014 rookie draft with a random draft o...

Re: General Auction Strategy

It would help knowing a few basic rules of your upcoming auction. Can you tell us if: - Are proxy bids allowed? This answer to this dramatically changes the auction. - How long does an owner need to be the high bidder before he wins the player? - How many players can be on the auction block at any ...

Re: Your charter's best feature

Our league uses an auction format in a way that can only be done with dynasty leagues. - Each year the teams receive their fantasy bankroll based on the prior year's performances, with the better teams getting less money than the worse teams. - The rookie & free agent auction happens in July/August....

Re: Buy Low Time - Jordan Matthews

His season was over before it ever began. The chest injury that occurred days after landing on the Bills prevented him from getting any chemistry going. His bad knee didn't help either. It had to be injuries and lack of chemistry this year. There is no way that Zay Jones and his 1/3 catch rate preve...

Re: Sam Bradford?

So Bradford is an UFA and can negotiate freely with any team. We don't really know the health of his knee, besides the fact that he couldn't really play after week 1. But Bradford knows what his knee looks like, and any team considering signing him will be given the facts as well. If he believes his...

Re: Doug Martin Price Check

Just traded away Doug. It is an auction league so there isn't any direct translation to draft picks. The trade is approximately the same as:

Give: Doug Martin and 2018 1.03 (or 1.04)
Get: 2018 1.01
