Re: Starting a New Salary Cap League, Looking for Guidan

Almost more important, how do you penalize a franchise when they cut a player. Most leagues just apply a penalty in the year they are cut. Much more dramatic, and this is what we have in USFL Superflex, apply the penalty over the course of the remaining years of the contract. So if you cut Aaron Ro...

Re: IDP League Scoring

Tackles may, or may not, be from a defender making a good play. If you're a LB, then the tackle was probably good. A CB? Probably because you let the receiver catch the pass first, and now we're rewarding teams for starting the crappy CB. And tackles aren't even an official statistic, meaning that t...

Re: Petition Rotoworld/MFL For an EDGE Position IDP

I'm doing a new IDP startup sal cap league, and I'm using the PFF position designations of DI, EDR, and LB. Of course, MFL is the only site that can handle a league of my complexity, and they don't use those positions. So I am manually changing player positions so that DI = DT, EDR = DE, and LB = LB...

I joined a RSO startup last year and will second what's been said. Great setup and rules. Horrible app and website.

Re: Preferred FA turnover?

RSO limits the number and length of contracts you can assign each year, which can feel constraining but is absolutely the best way to promote an active offseason free agent market. The lower the % is for people who prefer dynasty leagues and want to dabble in a salary cap / auction league. The highe...

Re: Value of IDP contracts in an RSO league

The most accurate answer is also going to be the least rewarding: it depends. Specifically, it depends on the other owners in your league. This is an auction after all, and so the price will be determined by the market. And so it's best to be flexible, and anticipate multiple scenarios so that early...

16-team, 53-man roster, start full 11 IDP, Big play scoring, 7-round rookie draft. Several teams piled up on rookie picks this year. 1 team bailed on the draft entirely.

Re: $100 Startup IDP League w/ initial Auction

I've got 15 owners. Just need 1 more. Other features of the league include Victory Points to diminish luck, division rivalry building, and a scoring system that includes points for First Downs (emphasizing them over receptions as a truer reflection of on-field importance) and negative points for pen...

$100 Startup IDP League w/ initial Auction - FILLED

I'm an experienced commish with a core group of competitive owners looking to form the ultimate dynasty league. $100 annual dues with part of the money reserved for multi-year awards to promote long-term commitment. We'll have at least 14, but ideally 16, teams. A sophisticated scoring system design...

Re: Salary Cap Keeper Auction question and AJG for Gio + Bal

Don't waste a keeper slot on a full-priced player. I love DT, but for sal cap keeper leagues, the point is to keep players BELOW their market price. I've bailed on Gordon in my other leagues, but at $3 that's a minimal investment for a potentially big return.

Re: IDP novice with unusual scoring system

That is most definitely a Big Play scoring system. You want to target the pass rushers like Clowney and Mack.

It's amazing how these scoring systems match up well with how NFL GMs evaluate talent, huh?
