  1. 2019 Fantasy Football Platform Discussion

    I like that. We have it where last place has to submit payment to CBS and handle certain commish duties (including managing payouts at season's end), but we all pay our $15 per person to last place for him making the payment (versus him paying the full CBS fee himself). Though I might throw that out as a suggestion for future years...
  2. New RW Forums Design Feedback Thread

    Got sidetracked between a phone call and another thread, so couldn't respond. I agree that the Theme update makes it better within here. I feel the same as you, in that at least it is readable now, though the original was definitely better. I wish that the Theme could be updated for the main site though, as that is still garbage And with the main site being so bad, that may be killer for RW in general.

    Free is nice...if free is good. Many people don't find Yahoo good. To each their own. You seem very upset that some people use CBS, even though you claim it is "no sweat off your back". I pay $15 a season for CBS. If one cannot afford $15 for a fantasy sport that spans several months, they probably shouldn't be purchasing Internet access or a cell phone.
  4. New RW Forums Design Feedback Thread

    Have been reading through this full thread and saw that info, so I'm going to try it now that I've finished reading. Thanks and fingers crossed as I try it...
  5. New RW Forums Design Feedback Thread

    I feel exactly the same way. I'm primarily a laptop user, and today is my first day using the Forums. I was hoping they weren't as bad as the main RW page for player updates (as that is horrible IMO...and so are the updated Forums). I might have to begin looking for a new site, as I'm not sure I can get used to this.
  6. 2019 Fantasy Football Platform Discussion

    I pretty much agree. I primarily use a laptop for fantasy, and I love CBS via that format. It is more cumbersome on my phone though. I don't like Yahoo in any format though

    It's mind-boggling to me that anyone is on team Yahoo. As they say in life, you get what you pay for...and in the case of Yahoo, you get free garbage. But to each their own. This is also my first time on these forums since the RW change, and count me as one who is not a fan at all.
  8. Auction vs Snake

    Some systems (Yahoo) don't allow you to prep for your random draft spot, as you only find out a half-hour before the draft. Which is one of several reasons I don't like Yahoo as a fantasy platform, but I digress And even if you prep in advance for every draft spot scenario, you still cannot get certain players you want. People can win from any draft spot in spite of that, but that doesn't make it a good system IMO.
  9. Auction vs Snake

    I've done auction. I've done snake. I don't think auction is the only way to draft...but I think auction is the best way to draft. I would do auction in all 3 of my leagues if I could (unfortunately not everyone wants to switch, in the 2 leagues that still do snake). Why do I think it is best? It's really simple. You can draft anyone you want, as long as you're willing to pay the price. You can truly build the type of team you want. There's no blaming of draft position for any shortcomings. If you don't end up with a player you really want in an auction, you have nobody to blame but yourself. Vice-versa, I think it is silly to have no shot at some players simply because of your draft spot in a snake draft. For people who have done both and prefer snake, everyone is entitled to their opinion. But for those who have never attempted auction, live a little and give it a try! For those who have never attempted auction, I don't think they can truly consider themselves a serious fantasy football player (which hey, that may be fine by some people).

    From my experience, I can endorse CBS. We pay $15 per person each year, and it is well worth it. My main league is a long-running keeper (since 2006), and CBS has a terrific history section, including prior records, team histories, message board archives, yearly draft results & transaction logs, and a league record book. The customizable scoring options are quite comprehensive. The options for sorting through player stats for both the current and prior seasons are terrific. And the live scoring is top-notch. After 9 years, we did move to Yahoo in 2015 because it was free and some of the owners wanted to give it a try. We got what we paid for...a poor platform in our opinion, after which we went right back to CBS in 2016 (and we've stayed there since). The one thing that CBS does not do, which some other platforms provide, is a regular report for all FAAB bids (rather than just the winning bid). You can get the report by contacting them in their help section, but it is a pain to go through doing that each week. I do play on Yahoo for one lower-priority league, and overall, CBS blows Yahoo away IMO. I also have heard many poor things about ESPN from those that have played it over the years.
  11. Tyreek Hill 2019 Outlook

    To add to this, here are Tyreek's rankings amongst WR's in yards per route run since he entered the league...it's pretty impressive: 2016: 5th amongst all WR's in yards per route run 2017: 6th amongst all WR's in yards per route run 2018: 3rd amongst all WR's in yards per route run
  12. Tyreek Hill 2019 Outlook

    Here is how PFF describes it: "Yards per route run is the crown jewel of PFF’s advanced stats for wide receivers. Dividing total receiving yards recorded by the number of routes run in a given game, season, career, etc. provides a great one-number summary of just how efficient a receiver is on a down-by-down basis. Receivers need to create separation, earn targets, secure passes and generate yards after the catch to have a high yards per route run figure, making it a product of multiple factors"
  13. Tyreek Hill 2019 Outlook

    Interesting stats from a PFF article that came out today... --Tyreek Hill led all WR's in 2018 with 754 deep receiving yards (#2 was Mike Evans, with 543). --Tyreek Hill led all WR's in 2018 in yards per route run out of the slot (with a minimum of 200 slot routes). He had a 3.28; nobody else had above 2.00. --Tyreek Hill led all WR's in 2018 in contested catch percentage. He had a 65% contested catch percentage (13 of 20 targets for 524 yards & 12 TD's). --Tyreek Hill did not lead all WR's in 2018 in yards per route run (all total routes). He was 3rd (behind Julio Jones & Michael Thomas).
