  1. Need a couple more people. Any other interest. We will be drafting next week.
  2. I am looking for a few more managers for a Yahoo league that is for people who like trading players each week. The idea is to have a hybrid between a season long league and daily fantasy. Please let me know if you're interested and I'll email the league invite. Quick description: All positions' point projections are fairly equal, it's 1 PPR & .5 PPC, there are a lot of flex spots, 1 required spot for each position, you get points for trading that do not affect weekly match-ups but would affect league rankings. I'm open to changes in the scoring/settings. Detailed description: This league is essentially just for people who like to trade players. I'm in a few leagues where people are either too scared to trade or will only trade if they rip someone off. So, this is for people who will keep up all season and actually have the balls to trade players. It's a new concept so it won't be perfect at first but will get better over time and I'm open to adjustments before the draft (currently set for Wed night). The scoring is adjusted so that nearly all players & positions are more equal. For example, the top 5 or so Kickers/Defenses have point projections in the top 40 with RB, WR, & QB. Trading is highly encouraged but also provides incentives. So, significant points will be awarded each week for teams that make trades. The points won't affect weekly match-up winner/losers. Instead, the points will be added to the season point totals which will adjust the weekly rankings (and ultimately playoff elimination and/or seeding). Required positions: - 1 each: QB, WR, RB, TE, K, D - 4 RB/WR/TE Flex spots - 5-7 Bench (depends on # of managers) - 1 IR Scoring: - You can see the details if you join the league but it's been adjusted so that the projected points for the season for all positions are fairly equal. A couple examples of scoring changes to balance things are: 1 PPR, .5 PPC, 35 passing yards for a point but 10 receiving/rushing yards for a point, significant points for defenses that hold teams to low scoring, and increasingly higher points for field goals of all distances. - Regarding points for trading: At the end of the week, trades will be calculated and 2 points awarded to both teams for every 1 player involved in the trade. For example, if Team A trades 2 players to Team B for 3 players (5 players total in the trade) then 10 points are given to both teams. By adding an incentive to trading, it adds a benefit to the intent of the league - trading a lot. Other info: - This is a new concept so I'm open to suggestions or changes on the scoring or settings for this year. It won't be perfect this year so if there is enough interest for next year, we can always refine the way this works. - Ideally, this would be a league with managers who are only tied to 1 or 2 players from their roster and the rest are players they're willing to deal in at least 1 trade per week.
  3. Sorry for the self-serving thread bump. But, I'm hoping to garner interest in this. I think it will be sort of a hybrid between a season long league and daily fantasy. DM me or reply to this thread and I'll send a league invite.

  5. I am going to create a Yahoo league this year that is strictly for managers who actually like to trade players. I'm in a few leagues with people and year after year, they only want to trade if they rip someone else off. It's F'n annoying. So, I want to start a league with 1 required: QB, WR, RB, TE, K, DEF, and 6 Flex spots where at least 1 trade per week is required and more points are earned based on trades. The base scoring would be 1 PPR, .5 PPC, and escalators for yards for all positions. Additional scoring would be done on a per-trade basis. For example - if Team A trades 2 players to Team B for 3 players (5 players total in the trade) then 5 points are given to both teams. By adding an incentive to trading, it makes it a bit more beneficial to all managers. I've considered adjusting kicker scoring and Defensive points just to try to make all positions equal in a sense. This is a new concept so I'm open to suggestions or changes on the scoring or settings for this year. It won't be perfect this year so if there is enough interest for next year, we can always refine the way this works. Please only join if you want to trade each week. Ideally, this would be a league with managers who are only tied to 1 or 2 players from their roster and the rest are players they're willing to deal. If it works out, I'll renew annually with the same people and kick out those who aren't interested in it. Over time, maybe it'll turn into a great league with consistent managers. I'll set it for 6-10 teams. Also, don't join more than once with different email addresses because trades will be rejected via league vote and it'll be sort of obvious that there are lopsided trades. Please let me know if you are interested and I'll send out a league invite. Thanks.
  6. I don't normally like when people bump their own threads. That stated...I'm going to do it in this case. Since the season is at the halfway point, I'd like to get a few more people in this league for a half year trial on whether this concept would be fun. If you are even remotely interested, please ask a few questions or join the league. I'm open to a rule changes, etc. and would not dictate league settings. If this league works, and we decide to do it again, then next year's settings/scoring will be determined by a league vote. If you're open to trying it for half a season to see if it is cool, sign up. If you have questions, comments, or just want to tell me that this is a duma$$ idea, be my guest!! hahahaha
  7. I just created a Yahoo league for managers who actually like to trade players. I'm in a few leagues with people who only want to trade if they rip someone else off. It's F'n annoying. So, I wanted to start a league with 1 required: QB, WR, RB, K, DEF, and 4 Flex spots. I left off a required TE since that position is a sh!tshow this year. The scoring includes 1 PPR, .5 PPC, and escalators for yards for all positions. You can check the league settings for other details. Please only join if you want to trade each week. Ideally, this would be a league with managers who are only tied to 1 or 2 players from their roster and the rest are players they're willing to deal. If it works out, I'll renew annually with the same people and kick out those who aren't into it. Over time, maybe it'll turn into a great league with consistent managers. It's set for a max of 10 teams and managers can invite others if they want. That way if you know somebody who fits the mold, you can add them too. Don't join a couple times with different email addresses because trades are rejected via league vote.
