league rules and effect on draft

Postby Waikele Waverunners » Fri Aug 20, 2004 8:51 pm

In my league our points for RB and WR are as follows:

WR/TE- 6 pts/td
1 pt/15 yds rushing/receiving
1 pt 40+yd TD
receiving yd bonus: 75-99=2; 100-149=3, 150-199=5
200+=8
RB- 6pts/TD
1 pt/25 yds rushing/receiving
1 pt 40+yd TD
Rushing yd bonus 100-149=3 150-199=5, 200+=8

Given the yradage bonus points should I move more WR's into the 2d and 3rd rounds over marginal RB's?

we start 2rb's and 2 WR with 1 WR/TE flex

I'm just gonna keep throwing plugs to this site. http://www.fftoolbox.com gives free adjusted rankings to scoring styles, number of teams, starter spots etc. It's great. Sorry I didn't give my own opinion, but it's all really speculation. Check out the site.

I checked it out and it has top 10 being:
Priest
LT2
Moss
Harrison
Green
Deuce
Holt
ALexander
Edge

Would you REALLY grab Moss of Green? or Holt over Alexander or Edge?

That does seem a little funky. I guess maybe because of the easier to reach receiving bonuses? I could see Moss over Green (I wouldn't do it, but I could see it), but no way on Holt over SA, especially with St. Louis's injury problems right now. I wouldn't use the list as the gold standard, but it could be an effective way to see how different positions stack up against each other. It certainly leans towards receivers a little, but I think maybe the computer puts a little too much stock in the bonuses. I guess. Sorry, didn't mean for the site to confuse you more.

Check out this thread where KingGhidra provided an Excel spreadsheet, it's a great tool. http://www.fantasyfootballcafe.com/foru ... hp?t=67415

Just because he is 3rd in scoring doesn't mean he's worth the #3 pick. Keep positional scarcity in mind and how much Moss outscores other WRs compared to how top RBs outscore other RBs.

The site says it does that, and when I input my standard scoring league it came out right, with RBs 1-13, then Moss, then CPepp 2 spots later, maybe even a little too RB heavy.

I would never NOT pick at least 1 stud RB in the first 5 picks, but I'm more concerned about rnds 2-3 and the situation there as far as RB vs WR...

(edit I did use the spreadsheet and it's nice, however I didn't see bonus points, I imagine since it uses total stats for the year and not for individual games it was impossible though)
