Your League and Positions...

Postby bazzy_51 » Sat Aug 29, 2009 4:06 pm

So just did a draft and noticed towards the rounds where i would look for a defense that there was something a little off. Does your league have something like this? Also is it just useless to cover it, or even have it as a position in your league?

My commish changed up some of the stats counted a week or so before the draft and now Team DEF are just about useless. He changed it to the only stat counted for them is points against, so the top defense in the league last year was Pitt followed by Baltimore. But the thing is those two DEF pointed 56 and 50 points total all year, that if you average it out only gives you at very best 4 points a week on average. What the hell is the point in that? The average DEF gives you 1-2 points a week. Yall have any positions or scoring like that in your league?

Oh and BTW Kickers compared to DEF, top DEF again had 56 PTs last year, the 25th overall point totalled Kicker scored 114 points. The saddest part about it is Taylor Mehlhaff who kicked for 3 weeks last year for the Vikes out scored the 13th best point totalled DEF from last year. Again is there a point to this? And what weird position scoring is there in your league?

A big thanks to deluxe_247 for the sweet sig!

Take your defense in the last round of the draft right after you take your kicker if it's scored that way.

I'm in a league with whacky kicker stats:

0.25 points for field goals up to 30 yards
0.5 points for field goals 31 - 40 yards
1 point for field goals 41 - 50 yards
20 points for field goals 50+ yards....

Then you need to consider this part.....

-20 points for field goals missed up to 30 yards
- 15 points for field goals missed 31 - 40 yards
-10 points for field goals missed 41 - 50 yards
-3 points for field goals missed 50+ yards

I looked at the stats for last year and only a handful of kickers had positive points. The only ones that did had at least 4 field goals over 50 yards. Case in point, Ryan Longwell. He had 6 FG's of 50+ yards last season (with this system that's 120 points!), but he only had 52 points on the season. Take away the 50 yarders and he had almost -70 points on the rest of his attempts.

I did not even bother drafting a kicker and left that roster spot blank for week 1. It's a 20 team league and only one other owner picked up on that prior to draft day and also did not draft a kicker. There are two owners who have since dropped their kickers, that makes 4 of us out of 20 that have figured this out. I predict by week 5 nobody will be dumb enough to start a kicker in this league.

Agreed, as long as there is no penalty I wouldn't roster one.
