12 team vs 15 team NFBC leagues??

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

 

Not sure where to post this so here we go.  I've played in some 12 team NFBC leagues the last couple years I'm and looking to jump to the 15 team Main Event this season.  I'm sure drafting strategy changes a bit with 15 teams compared to 12.  Anybody played in the Main Event over at the NFBC site?  What do you guys like about 15 team leagues over 12 team leagues?  How does your drafting strategy change when comparing the 2 leagues?  Does anybody know of any articles on drafting 15 team leagues? Thanks ahead for any insight

Do a 15 team draft champions before you jump to the main.  You’ll get a better idea what to expect.  They’re basically the same format with a smaller buy.

I might do a 15 team Satellite instead.  I think Draft Champions you draft 50 players and then there are no FAAB acquisitions.  Main Event would be quite a bit different I believe

It’s the same in that you’re playing for an overall prize.  That’s the big difference between a satellite and an overall contest. Owners will take certain categories more aggressively and shoot for upside.

So essentially guys are going to draft more conservative in the Satellites.

Here's a few blogs

You can win with a variety of strategies.  The thing is, these guys are posting up a lot of their time and $$$.  Successful owners aren't going to be giving away their secrets very freely.  It changes year to year anyways...

I won my 2 out of my 3 Rotowire Online Championship leagues last year so I was looking at trying my luck at the Main Event but I may need more seasoning....lol.  I'm looking at taking 2 entries into the Dirty Dozen now
