has anyone ever been in a league with 2 kickers?

Postby euclid530 » Sun Aug 14, 2005 7:27 pm

I'm running a league for the first time this year and i was wondering what is the best layout for positions. It is a 12 team head to head league and this is what i have so far

1 QB
2 RB
2 WR
1 TE
1 RB/WR
2 K
1 Def

I know you are probably seeing the two kickers and questioning that one but i was thinking it might make kickers more valuable. I was also considering adding a wr to keep the position kind of deep. What has worked for you in the past?

I like the format Bagobonez listed with a Flex added (WR/RB).

thats the one i've done in the past and with a bench with 6 spots i guess that will mean each team will have 4 wr.

what do you guys think of 2 kickers? has anyone tried that before? I was wondering if it would make people choose kickers higher since having 2 good kickers versus 2 bad kickers can make a difference. The only problem is that there would only be 6 FA kickers and if people kept 3 kickers since we have 6 bench spots then people could be using backup kickers if there kicker goes down

I play in a 10-teamer that has the following roster spots:

QB
QB
RB
RB
WR
WR
Flex
Flex
Flex
Flex
Flex
K
K
Def
Def

We play the whole team and then only the top combination of either

QB/RB/RB/WR/WR/K/D or QB/RB/WR/WR/WR/K/D is what counts.

This means the bench is MUCH more important than in a standard league because in a standard league once you have your studs locked up the bench is there for Bye weeks and injuries mostly, while in this format the bench is crucial because everyone plays and if you don't have a good bench you are going to get killed if your stud has a down day and your opponent doesn't...

Kickers are still not that big a deal although they can be the difference in close games...

I use 2 kickers in my ESPN league. I made a custom league with a bunch of us @ work, heres how it breaks down.
10 person, H2H

Start:
2 QB's
2 RB's
1 RB/WR
4 WR's
1 TE
2 DE/Sp. Teams
2 Kickers

I think the Bench has 9 spots, and 1 IR spot.

Plus I made a lot of point bonuses, and extra stuff. I was just sick of standard scoring, and wanted to make it interesting.

In my biggest money league, a 10-team league we start:

QB
QB
RB
RB
WR
WR
WR
TE
K
K
DEF
DEF

It is amazing to me how different this draft looks compared to other, more normal leagues. QBs, Kickers and Defenses go way earlier than other leagues. It essentially makes the cafe useless since 95% of the advice, cheatsheets and mocks on here are for leagues with standard QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, TE, K, DEF rosters. It is still a fun league though and very competetive!

In my league, we always use 2 kickers to dilute the value of a single kicker, as we do with DEF. The same way we do with QB.
