Bizarro League

Postby Team Updog » Tue Aug 26, 2008 11:39 pm

I'm starting up a Bizarro League on Yahoo and I could use some GMs

What is a Bizarro League, you ask?
It is a league designed so that the worst NFL player is the best one for your fantasy team.
Positive points for fumbles, interceptions, etc.
Negative points for TDs, yards, etc.
Your defense got lit up? That's a good thing!

I've added in points for Passing Attempts, Rushing Attempts and Receptions, because it wouldn't be fun to draft a team of bench players.
The goal is to start the worst players, who somehow manage to get out there every Sunday for their team.

Sound like fun?

In order to join the league, go to the Yahoo fantasy sports page, click the "Sign Up Now" or "Get Another Team" button and follow the links to "Join a Custom League". When prompted, enter the League ID# and password below.

League ID#: 570168
Password: none

Thanks!

You better make the fumbles and stuff a lot cause if you're giving point for passing/rushing attempts you could probably just draft the studs and win.

yeah, youll likely have issues with the attempts thing, better work that out, I just thought of a funny scenario in my head last year though. In this league, everyone rushes to pick up Derek Anderson last year in hopes of awfulness and wallaah, hes a stud. Haha

Right now, according to the Yahoo rankings for the league's scoring system, Jon Kitna is the "best" player.
Surprisingly, that doesn't sound too far off...

Thanks to anyone who joined up.
It will probably take a few days to fill up, then we'll finalize the scoring and try to draft this crazy thing.

Sorry, I didn't notice your post until a few minutes ago (I don't frequent this site that much).

The draft will take place when we get a few more teams, we just need an even amount.
We had 4, but now we are down to 3.
Since this is such an unusual format, 6 teams would probably work.

The current draft format is autopick.
So we would pre-rank our players and then the computer will draft, based on those ranks.
I'm open to changing the format, I just figured autopick would be the easiest way to pull together an unusual league with random people.
