Title: NFL Fantasy Football - GAABoard Superbowl XII
Post by: AZOffaly on June 03, 2010, 09:49:25 AM
Don't worry, it's not actually starting yet, but as I'm off on holidays to Portugal for 2 weeks, with very limited internet access, I want to get a bit of feedback regarding the Tool we use, and even any scoring changes ye'd like to see.

www.nfl.com have launched a new free fantasy game,
www.espn.com has a well established fantasy game, which is the basis for the podcasts they do (ESPN Fantasy Focus Football)
www.yahoo.com is our own 5 year old home.

If anyone has any strong preferences, please let me know and I'll take a look. We've had to have two seperate leagues the past two seasons due to Yahoo capping at 20, so if any of these are better that would be a good start. It has to be head to head (i.e. weekly matchups) though, no league tables of points scored.

Cheers

Good to see this back again. Hoping to go one better than last years final appearance.
One change id like to see this year is the Playoffs moved from weeks 16 & 17 to weeks 15 & 16.
If i remember right i lost my QB, WR & 3 RBs for the final as they were being rested for the playoffs. Ended up fielding a much weakened team and got hammered...

Not sure on which site is the best, maybe someone with experience of all 3 can give an insight...

Just in case this would be forgotten about :D
Preseason games start August 8th
Regular season starts September 9th

I think Yahoo would still be ok to use as last year they sorted out any problems with the waivers with waiver priority...

As a side note does anybody fancy setting up an auction draft outside the official Fantasy Football. You'd need to be fairly serious about it as everyone would have to make the draft.

Alright lads, it's time to start getting thinking about this. Where does the time go. The teams are about to hit training camp, so we need to start gathering names.

I haven't seen a swell of support for switching providers or formats, to I'll go with renewing the Montana and Payton conferences again. I will post details here.

We can trash out season length, scoring etc once we have an idea of numbers, but I'd be hoping for at least 2 x 10 again.

cheers

18 teams in lads, two more for the Payton league and we have a quorum. We'll keep taking applications up to the day, but at least if we have 10 in each it's a decent competition.

Head to head league, with 4 playoff spots.

Will you be ranking players who are injured or do we do that ourselves?

Maybe post up some rules or instructions? Sorry if this has all been covered.....
Title: Re: NFL Fantasy Football - GAABoard Superbowl VI
Post by: AZOffaly on August 03, 2010, 05:24:35 PM
I'll post up some stuff beforehand, but basically it's as follows.

We do a live online snake draft, usually takes about an hour and half, using the Yahoo tool. (Go and 'test your system' beforehand). Basically in the draft you have required rosters to fill, and when they are filled you can populate your bench with any combination of the starting positions.

There are numerous draft kits and packs that help in your draft, and if you think you won't make it, you can pre-rank the players in order of who you think are the best. Each time your turn comes around the computer will pick the highest available ranked player, pending roster spot completion. e.g. if you have one pick left, and have not picked a kicker, the computer will get you the highest ranked kicker you have left, even if he's not the highest overall left.

Post by: GalwayBayBoy on August 05, 2010, 01:28:48 PM
There's 13 in Montana now. How many in Payton? To be honest I think 10 or 12 is the optimum number for a fantasy league. 14 is too many IMO as a couple of lads tend to lose interest not to mention it adds potentially another 30 minutes onto the draft. If there is 11 in Payton someone could switch across to make in an even 12 in both.
Title: Re: NFL Fantasy Football - GAABoard Superbowl VI
Post by: AZOffaly on August 05, 2010, 01:31:58 PM
13 in Montana, 12 in Payton. We'll need to make it even anyway. 14 and 12 is not too bad. It'll  just make the draft harder in Montana.
Title: Re: NFL Fantasy Football - GAABoard Superbowl VI
Post by: GalwayBayBoy on August 05, 2010, 02:13:21 PM
Feck it. Hate 14 team leagues. Extra two picks every round means you are really taking long-shots in the middle rounds at marginal players who might not see much gametime anyway. Not to mention the draft goes on forever. Oh well.

Title: Re: NFL Fantasy Football - GAABoard Superbowl VI
Post by: declan85 on August 05, 2010, 02:49:06 PM
A 14 team league will make it very tough and probably should be maxed at that. If each team owner was to keep 2 quarterbacks, a starter and 1 to cover the bye week and if i remember right some bye weeks have 6 teams off then its possible that a team could have no quarterback to replace their starter... So remember lads Manning & Brady with your first two picks ;)

No bother. No need to rush lads, just register. Ye've 3 weeks before the drafts.

By the way, somebody asked earlier on what happens if you miss the draft. Make sure you pre-rank your players and you'll get the highest ranked player that's available to you each time.
Title: Re: NFL Fantasy Football - GAABoard Superbowl VI
Post by: dec on August 05, 2010, 03:47:29 PM
Even if you don't pre rank your players your picks will be whatever the highest ranked available player is according to Yahoo. Their ranking is probably going to be pretty close to the consensus about who are the better players.

Just got this from the NFLUK website...

"Sky air live games at 6:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. every Sunday night through the 2010 NFL season, as well as providing coverage of the Saturday and Thursday night games that take place during the final seven weeks of the season. From early January 2011, Sky will show all the live postseason action, followed by Super Bowl XLV live from Dallas on Sunday February 6th. Sky will also have coverage of the Pro Bowl, also from Miami, on Sunday January 31st. In addition to their coverage of live NFL fixtures, Sky will broadcast NFL Network programming, including NFL Total Access, the NFL Network's flagship news program which keeps fans up-to-date with all the latest news from around the league.

ESPN's live coverage of Monday Night Football games kicks off at the start of the regular-season. Before kick-off of every Monday Night game you can review all the action from the previous weekend on Monday Night Countdown."


No mention of the red button games coming back, they lost the rights to those before last season. Might have a look at the GamePass on nfl.com to check the price. Giving UPC enough money at the minute between TV and braodband...

Right lads,

Payton Conference is *CLOSED* for business. 14 teams in and going to post. Does anyone want to do the draft earlier than I had provisionally booked?

Montana has 1 team opening left. Lets try and fill that today, and then I'll put the tin hat on that as well.

For any new lads, take a look at maybe joining a 'mock' draft. They are dry runs for what you would see in our real draft and are well worth doing if you've not seen one or taken part in one.
Title: Re: NFL Fantasy Football - GAABoard Superbowl VI
Post by: AZOffaly on August 06, 2010, 09:18:49 AM
By the way, I think it was declan who was asking about moving the playoff weeks to 15 and 16 instead of 16 and 17, on the basis that a lot of lads get burned when people sit if they have the division wrapped up, etc.

I have no objection to this in principle, but I think the NFL have recognised that themselves, and if you look at the last two weeks of the season, there are a lot more intra division and intra conference games, which mean it'll be harder for people to sit out as the division may not be locked up yet, and wild cards etc will still be in the pot.

Week 16

Carolina @ Pittsburgh
Dallas @ Arizona - Conference game
New England @ Buffalo - Division Game
NY Jets @ Chicago
San Francisco @ Saint Louis - Division Game
Detroit @ Miami
Minnesota @ Philly - Conference Game
Seattle @ Tampa - Conference Game
Washington @ Jacksonville
Baltimore @ Cleveland - Division Game
Tennessee @ Kansas City - Conference Game
Indianapolis @ Oakland - Conference Game
Houston @ Denver - Conference Game
NY Giants @ Green Bay - Conference Game
San Diego @ cincinnatti - Conference Game
New Orleans @ Atlanta - Division Game


Week 17 is *all* division games. On that basis I think it's okay to stay on weeks 16 and 17. What do ye think?

Sorry McGrens, agree with what? I'm saying leave it as is because the NFL have catered for it themselves, whereas Minder (was it?) wanted to move the playoffs forward.

I guess it'll be unlikely that the Colts will be sitting Manning if they are playing the Titans in the last game.
Title: Re: NFL Fantasy Football - GAABoard Superbowl VI
Post by: The Claw on August 06, 2010, 04:01:03 PM
I wouldn't be totally against having it in week 15,16 but I would prefer for it to stay at week 17. Its part of the excitement whether they will start. I remember last year in another league I participated in that I was two points away from winning my leage. I just needed two points from Thomas Jones against the Bengals and he had been killing them all day, all I need was 20 more yards... what happened? Woodhead comes on and takes the last 5 snaps or so, I lose the final.

But that is part of it IMO, you have to pay attention to who usually sits their starters etc

My tuppence worth. Regardless of divisional matchups week 15 and 16 will have a higher number of "honest" games than week 17. There should be more teams still in with a chance of winning divisions, making playoffs etc than there will be in the final match.

I believe a lot of fantasy league in the US do not use week 17 because of the issue of resting players. Use week 17 as a prediction competition to decide the winner between our two conferences.

I think you have to avoid the final being in week 17 at all costs. That is the way most leagues are run. Think about how bad it would be if you had Drew Brees and Chris Johnson on your team already qualified for the playoffs and rested in week 17.

Take the points on the new schedule to try and prevent this happening but the fact is there is no evidence that it will.

OK, I'm all for democracy (when it suits :) ) so done. Playoff semi finals week 15m, finals week 16. We'll use week 17, as suggested for the Superbowl predictions competition.

One other quick vox pop. The option is there now to create divisions in each of the conferences. I could set up two or even 3 divisions, with the winners making the playoffs, and then the next best runner up(s) making the other playoof spots.

For e.g. I could have 2 divisions in Montana. Winner of each division seeds 1 & 2. Seeds 3&4 are the remaining teams with the best record, regardless of division.

Is this of interest?

If you could identify the province/county of the team managers you could break the divisions up on that basis.

Does this affect your schedule?

What happens if one division drafts well and the other doesnt? Say if we ended up with an AFC West and O'Neill wins it at 7-7 after 14 weeks, and a team in the other division (AFC East) has a far superior record and doesnt make the playoffs?

And Dec..., are we not trying to get away from that in the GAA? lol.

Any newbies out there, or even experienced lads. I'd highly recommend a 'mock draft'. You can find the link there on the league page. Make sure you choose a league with 14 teams, to make it representative.

It's handy to walk you through a draft, but also to help you formalise a strategy, and back up plans if a lad you want goes.

Cheers

Not Tom Brady. He's still playing.

Joe Montana is probably the greatest quarterback to play the game.

How about in the Montana Conference two divisions. The Rice Division (For Jerry) & The Madden Division (for John)

In Payton, the Starr Division for Bart, and the Nameth Division for Broadway Joe.

You will be able to see everyone else's squad after the draft and make offers. It is simple enough once you mess around with the site.

AZ - Meathman here.
Title: Re: NFL Fantasy Football - GAABoard Superbowl VI
Post by: AZOffaly on August 23, 2010, 02:18:53 PM
Yep. Exactly that.

When you draft your squad, you can change it all the way through the season.

There are two ways to change it.

Trades (which work as you might think), but there is a transfer window as such. Trades can only be made up to Nov. 13th. That's to stop teams which fall out of contention giving away all their best players to their mates.

Add Free Agent.
Undrafted players are all available, and you can pick up one of them immediately, if you make room on your own roster. This is very handy if one of your guys gets injured, and you need to release him off your squad. You can pick up a Free Agent to replace him straight away. It's not only for injuries though. Theoretically you could change your entire roster this way.

Drafted players who get 'dropped' by other teams go onto the 'waiver wire'. This means they cannot be picked up for 2 days or so, but you can 'Add' them. Each team has a waiver priority, (like your draft position).

As an example, if I drop Braylon Edwards because I'm picking up Jericho Cotcherry, Edwards will go to the Waiver wire. If you want him, and manager X also want him, Yahoo will look at your waiver position to see who wins. (1 beats 12).

Waiver wire position goes by your draft position (Draft last = 1st on Waiver wire). However the kicker is that whenever you pick someone up off waivers in a contest like that, your waiver position goes back to 12, and everyone else moves up one.

By the way, both conference drafts are this week, Thursday for the Montana Conference, and Friday for the Payton. I'll set up the divisions before then.

Try and make it to the draft (2 pm Limerick time :) ) if you can, because if not you have to be careful on your pre-rankings. I missed a draft on a different league last week, because I assumed the draft would move (we only had 6 members the day before the draft). On the last day we got 8 more entrants, and it went ahead. My receivers are Cotcherry, Edwards, Meachem, Mike Williams and Nate Burleson :(

It is, but PPR means Point Per Reception. In other words each time one of your players catches a pass, he gets a point. That makes pass catching running backs and Tight Ends and Receivers more valuable.

I think the way it worked last year was very good, anybody sitting watching the games couldnt pick up the next superstar straight away, they had to wait until Wednesday after making the claim on the waivers and they would only get him then if they had the highest waiver priority(lowest number). This gives everyone 2-3 days after the games on Sunday to get to a computer and make a claim. If the settings are still the same as last year then it will work well again...

The draft is not automatic. A snake draft is where each of us make a manual pick in order 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-11-12-12-11-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 and so on.

If you cannot make the draft, or your system cannot handle it (use the 'test my system' link) then it is important you pre rank your players, or make sure you are happy with the Yahoo ones, as your picks will be automatic when it comes to your turn.

I am flexible about changing the draft time. The only problem is you will never get a time to suit everyone. My suggestion is to edit your pre draft rankings slightly and the auto pick function will go BPA throughout the draft. The only fault with that is the system drafts kickers earlier than you might like.

Ah right Ted. I thought it was the automatic snake draft.
My system isn't able to launch the window unfortunately so that leaves me daffy ducked.

So if I pre-rank the players and it auto picks 15 for me - what happens after that?
sorry for all the questions bud

You could still end up with a very competitive team even with an automatic draft although there is a bigger chance that you might end up with a few duds especially towards the middle and end of the draft.

With 12 teams last year the draft was pushing on for well over an hour. With 14 this year I'd say it won't be far off 2 hours alright. The computer will pick for you though if you can't do the whole thing. You'd definitely want to be there to pick your first half a dozen players or so though.

Its very hard to know how to pre-rank your players because it is hard to tell how yahoo will judge it. Foe example, you could have a RB ranked at 50 but the computer might determine that you need a QB and therefore pick a qb you have ranked 60. My advice would be to change the first two rounds ranking to your liking and then broadly leave the rest of the players but move a few players up and down that you really like.

On the waivers, the following will apply.

At the start of the first game of the week through to 8pm Tuesday evening, *ALL* unclaimed players will be put on waivers. Any claims on those players in that timeframe will be treated as Waiver Claims, with the Waiver Rules.

The Waiver Rules will be 'Weekly Rolling List based on standings' i.e. Each Week you will be assigned a Wiaver position based on your current standing in the league. If you claim a player, you will move to last position on the waiver wire for that week.


Any questions give me a shout.

Again - sorry for all the questions. Do we have to draft two Defensive Backs and two Defensive Linemen? The two mock drafts I attempted had no individual defensive players and I don't recall seeing them on the yahoo system. Am I missing something?
Title: Re: NFL Fantasy Football - GAABoard Superbowl VI
Post by: AZOffaly on August 25, 2010, 02:03:18 PM
Yep Seanie, we felt a few years ago that Defensive Players was something we wanted to recognise and reward. DLs are either Defensive Linemen or Linebackers, DBs are Safeties and Cornerbacks.

They should be there alright, and will be available in our draft. I wouldn't be spending a top 7 or 8 round draft pick on them though.

Try this link. You can filter on positions to view players.

To be honest, that rarely happens, but even if it does, don't panic :) Yahoo will make sure you pick a decent player at your turn, even if you get a brain freeze.

A tip for you. Print out one of the top 200 rankings from Yahoo or ESPN or NFL or somewhere like that, and just cross off lads as they get selected.

Decide your draft strategy beforehand if you are unsure of your plan of attack, e.g. 'I'm going heavy on runningbacks early, then Wide Recievers, and am only picking one QB and one TE', or whatever. Then stick to that plan unless something crazy like Chris Johnson falls to you in the 5th round or something like that.

It really is easier than it might sound, but it is no harm to have a printout of the top 200 (at least) players, and a little plan.

One other tip. When I'm waiting for my time to come around, I look at what position I'm thinking of drafting next. So if I want a WR, I'll pull my next favourite 4 or 5 into the queue, and they will disappear as other lads pick them. When it comes to my turn, whatever is left is probably someone I like.

Use the time between your picks to a) keep track of what others are picking, and b) deciding a set of lads you wouldn't mind picking next.

If I am doing pre-ranked player and I include DB and DL as my last picks then I usually only get one or two max in a mock draft. I can't ensure I have the correct positional players by drafting this way.
So my question is what happens if my positions do not match up with the ones the league requires?

You will only be allowed fill the roster positions mandated by the league, so if you have only 1 DB, you will only be able to play 1 DB, you won't be allowed put an extra RB or whatever.

Don't worry though, there'll be loads of DBs and DLs left over if that happens, but I don't think Yahoo will allow you to leave without 2 of each if you are not at the draft.

Very good film, though I was dreading watching it as once I hear the words "true story" and "heartwarming tale" in the same sentence, it's usually lined up to be two horrendous hours. I wouldn't have said that they focussed on the football too much at all, but they managed to make it quite watchable and for the first time ever, I came away thinking Sandra Bullock did a good job.

Agreed, I really liked Lewis' analysis of how the position of left tackle went from being just another man on the O Line to being one of the most important players on the team because of the evolution of the game from a running league to a passing league.

Thought the film did a decent job of it. Bullock was ok, but not sure the role was really deep enough to win an oscar, seemed pretty similar to her other roles.

I think you can join late, but you may miss a pick. There's a 'chat' function there, so we should be able to answer questions. Don't trust any answers that start 'You should draft x here'. :D (especially if you are picking just before me) :)



By the way, I looked at the schedule there. Yahoo have determined that you play each team in your division twice, and two non division games. That seems fair to me, and will lead to more 'grudge' matches during the season.

14 teams makes it very tough to be strong everywhere but youve got the top quarterback, top tight end, top kicker & one of the top d's. Will have to look for good pickups during the year at WR & RB but thats the same for everyone...

How the hell did it autopick a kicker in the 3rd round? Not to mention a defence in the 4th.

Seanie's draft wasn't bad in fairness. Even managed to get a Bears influence in there. ;D

`Was wondering that, but it may have been rankings that Shrek did. Shrek, did you have them relatively high? Bear in mind that you're 3rd and 4th picks would have been in the mid 30s/high 40s range.

Woejus early to be making such comments. I'm not terribly unhappy, the system froze me out for the last few rounds so I really would have preferred to have done a lot better at DL and my RB core full of potential but short of dependability.

Depending on what sort of a year Eli and the Giants D has, Red Hand Helmets look in very decent nick to me too.

Giants are trying to rebuild the running game and Eli should be solid enough if that knock on the head hasn't shook his confidence even more.
Giants D? Who knows what this new guy can get from them - they certainly have the talent but that doens't always guarantee success.

Trading to be done boys!!!

I'm happy enough too. That luder coming up looking for me to do a meeting didn't help, but according to ESPN rankings, in PPR I have the 10th QB, 10th TE, 2nd and 10th RB, 10th and 20th WR , along with some decent depth at WR and RB, which was my strategy. I suppose the year coming will prove whether the strategy is correct, but it's something I wanted to try.

If the Ravens have a good year, I might be set up well :)

Post by: magpie seanie on August 27, 2010, 05:58:00 PM
Reasonably happy all told. Got a few lads I really thought would be gone before they'd get to me. Didn't intend to pick a QB so early but when Rivers was available at the time I took him. DB's and DL's were a joke for me, had no research done there. The bro spent a bit of time in Houston and picked Mario Williams out. The Al Harris pick was hilarious. I just had a few names I recognised in the column on the right and didn't realise it auto picked of that column if you let the clock run to zero! Al Harrisould be injured or suspended or on his last legs for all I know. Last pick of a 3rd QB was a bit dumb too but we reckoned Leinart cannot but do ok with the WR's at his disposal. Didn't see any RB's or WR's available at that stage I fancied so went for it (had decided it before one of the lads spcualted about picking him up in free agency - honestly!).

Should be good craic. Never really took huge interest in other teams but this season will be very different.

As for getting a Bears flavour - hardest thing for me was not to draft few more! Good luck to all.

Post by: AZOffaly on August 27, 2010, 09:13:09 PM
You did alright :) You got the first pick, so were picking 1st, 28th, 29th, 56th etc. Chris Johnson is an animal running back, and by fat the best running back last year. Cedric Benson is a more than solid number 2. Favre had a great year last year, but his receiving corps is a bit banged up this year. Rice is out at least half the season, Harvin has a chronic migraine issue. He should still be a decent QB though.

Finlay is a great tight end up in Green Bay.

I'd say the rest of your picks are decent, but not great. That's often the way in the later rounds when you are on the autopick.

Best of luck with it. I know it has stoked other lads interest in the game, so I hope it does the same for you. I think you'll enjoy the head to head format.

Considering I couldn't make the draft, my first impression looking at it was that I made out like a bandit. Mightn't be too overly enamored with my DE selections but I certainly can't complain considering I put them on my draft list.

Looking at the rest of the teams, I'd agree that Lone Shark and XMG hitmen look in very good shape and as usual bombidal will be hard to beat again with a decent selection

The Faithful Turfmen B team are annoyed at being discounted in the pre season prognostications and are determined to confound the 'experts'. That is all.

Agreed!

As it stands now there on the waiver so you lose your waiver position if you want to pick one up, nearly sure last year you could add & drop them at will

You can't seperate them from the other players. They're just like a roster position after all.

Just in case you didnt see the rule change the waivers this year are based on standings each week. Last year you moved to last if you picked up a guy off the waivers, this year i think your last if youve got the best winning record...

Almost correct declan. Your waiver position (during the season), is determined EACH WEEK based on your standings, however, if you select someone off waivers, you still move to the back of the queue for THAT WEEK.

The next week it's determined off standings again.

The Arizona Cardinals have put Matt Leinhart on the trading block !! 1 week before the season starts. He's gone from starter to quarterback contest to backup to now trade bait within 1 month. Unreal. He took umbrage at being in a contest with Derek Anderson, and when Anderson was named starter against the Bears he went balubas.

Yeah, that is some turnaround in a couple of weeks.

A few other situations that will be very interesting before the start of the regular season. This fantasy thing is bloody addictive and hard work! Am convinced I'm going to leave someone on the bench who goes on to post good numbers. Good craic already though and we haven't had a game yet.

A few other situations that will be very interesting before the start of the regular season. This fantasy thing is bloody addictive and hard work! Am convinced I'm going to leave someone on the bench who goes on to post good numbers. Good craic already though and we haven't had a game yet.

it really is Seanie , You will find yourselve glued to the games and the half time reports from sky sports on the sunday

I'd recommend watching Stat Tracker (you can link to it from our league page) on a Sunday evening as you're watching the live games. You can show the games by real game, or fantasy game, and every play is updated live, so you can see your fantasy game 'as it happens'.

I bought a netbook and put in wireless this year so I could do this :D Sad.

Any of the rest of ye do the season pass thing from NFL.com? Did last year and the reception was excellent, but watching it on the laptop wasn't ideal. Still, I'd have no interest in anything else on Sky barring the Heineken Cup, and this way you get the Monday night games as well.

If you want to bet in running, the delay is a bit annoying though. Otherwise it's all good.

Heres some good news..

http://www.nfluk.com/news/football-is-coming-home-to-channel-4-010910.html
NFL football is coming home! Almost three decades after first appearing on Channel 4, the NFL is returning to its original station in a new deal to broadcast Sunday Night Football.

 


Channel 4 will air the league's premier match-up at 1 a.m. every Sunday night, with the game kicking off at 1.20. The new season will begin with the Dallas Cowboys' trip to arch-rival Washington Redskins on September 12.
 


The NFL was first introduced to the UK on a weekly basis when newly-launched Channel 4 began airing its ‘American Football' show in November 1982. The station's coverage evolved into a mix of live, highlights and magazines shows and continued until January 1998, when the Denver Broncos beat the Green Bay Packers in the last game to be aired on the channel.

 


Alistair Kirkwood, managing director of NFL UK, said: "This is very exciting news. Not only does this deal ensure that the NFL's biggest game of the week and the sport's most exciting stars are available on free-to-air television in the UK, but it takes the league back to the station that many of our fans grew up watching all those years ago. It is also fitting that this new deal comes in the year when we have two of the most successful teams from the first Channel 4 era, the San Francisco 49ers and Denver Broncos, playing in our annual game at Wembley in October."

 

Details of the broadcasts, including the presenters, will be announced in the near future, but Kirkwood added: "The shows will be contemporary in presentation and style, but fans should expect a little taste of the past in there as well. We expect it to be a lot of fun."
 

In 1982, when Channel 4 launched American Football at 6 p.m. on Sunday evenings:

 

•A pint of beer cost 62 pence
•Culture Club were number one with Do You Really Want to Hurt Me
•Among the most popular shows on TV was Fame - the era's version of Glee
•The mullet was the new men's hairstyle of choice
•ET and Bladerunner were among the year's big movie releases
•England were unbeaten in the World Cup finals, but still went home early
•Decathlete Daley Thompson was BBC Sports Personality of the Year
•The first commercial CD was produced
 

The deal with Channel 4 completes the line-up of NFL broadcasters for the 2010 season, which kicks off on Thursday September 9th:

 

•Sky Sports - two lives games every Sunday (6 p.m. and 9 p.m.), plus Thursday and Saturday night games throughout the season and every playoff game live, including Super Bowl XLV from North Texas, on Sunday February 6.
•Channel Four - Sunday Night Football every week.
•ESPN - live Monday Night Football every week (1.30 a.m.)
•BBC TV - Super Bowl XLV live; weekly playoff highlights; Wembley game highlights on October 31.
•BBC Radio - weekly live game commentary (9 p.m.) on 5Live Sports Extra.

I use it. I dont have the betting problem, and I find the service brilliant. its great being able to switch back and forwards between games as you please.

Get a HDMI cable and connect the laptop to your HDTV, thats what I do. I also plan to use my old craptop to follow stat-tracker.

By the way, I think the Leinhart move would be good for any Larry Fitzgerald owners, but potentially bad for Tim Hightower owners.

Leinhart is afraid to throw INTs at this point, he's like a dog that's been kicked too often. If he was starting, he wouldn't even trust the great Fitz to go up and grab 60-40 balls, so everything becomes a checkdown. He's gotten a name for checking down way too quickly, but that means loads of catches for slot receivers like Earley Doucet or half backs like Tim Hightower.

Anderson wil probably throw 20+ Interceptions this year  ::) but at least he will keep throwing it up for Larry to catch. Of course the ones that are INTs will not be points for Larry, but at least he'll have a chance. In contrast he is slow to check down, and loves throwing down the field. Breaston and Fitzgerald might be happier with this.

Either way, it looks a bit of a mess over in the Desert, and I think the Cards will be lucky to finish 7-9, 8-8 this season. It's the 49ers to throw away.

Larry Fitzgerald will also be happy because Anderson gets more zip in his long ball even though he's inaccurate. Leonard had less arm strength and Larry was putting his neck in the line every time he went to catch one of Leinart's high, arching deep balls.

This may come under fantasy news... Has Revis of the Jets been given a new contract yet? Is he going to play if he doesnt get one?
If hes playing it means 2 weeks in the year when Randy Moss & Brandon Marshall dont score...
Title: Re: NFL Fantasy Football - GAABoard Superbowl VI
Post by: AZOffaly on September 02, 2010, 02:21:14 PM
Revis is still holding out, but the signs are that they both want something done. His fine is now at 530k. The Jets want him, but he wants top defensive player money, and the Jets don't want to do that before a possible new CBA for 2011.

At the moment the predictions are that he will not start the season for the Jets, but will be back in harness in about week 3. He's missed an entire pre-season at this stage, and there's only so much you can do working out with a trainer.

you're right though. If he's not there the Jets defence obviously suffers a bit, but if he is, and if he's going at top notch, then Randy Moss, Lee Evans and Brandon Marshall are in for 2 quiet games each this year.

Revis not being at full tilt is one of the things that convinced me I was OK drafting both Brady and Welker. I now it's unlikely he would be match up direct with Wes, but it just means that where it wouldve been the 2nd corner it's now the third.

I've had some bad luck with my auto draft picks and what the computer chose for me.

Sidney Rice out for some time and D Ward out.  Leaves my bench week but still a decent core team, decent def and defense individual D picks.

is it possible to know whether anyone has a good defense @ this stage of the year??Because " Did you know that in the last 6 years, only 2 "consistently" projected top 10 FF defenses actually finished in the top ten at the end of the year? Only Chicago & Baltimore a few years back.  There is absolutely no clear cut #1 fantasy defense this year." Discuss

That's true actually. I know the Steelers were a consensus #1 defense pick last year, but of course Troy Polamalu's injury bolloxed them. I think they finished 22nd or something like that.

yes it is hard to pick a DEF that will remain consistent. Jets still have the same Def coordinator so I'll stick with them.

Now their service has slipped way back and while I like seeing the Heineken Cup, that's really the only other thing I'd look at - and so for me, it's a case of Sky or Season Pass, not both.

Basically I'll be doing one or the other - for now trying to source a TV to link up via HDMI - laptop doesn't really do justice to these things!

The picture is fine, as good as if you were getting it through Sky, however you'd need a high def TV to really do it justice. Even on the laptop screen the high def is very noticeable.

I picked the saints who were excellent last year because of their turnovers and defensive touchdowns. They might not repeat it but I got Tennessee as the backup plan. They were a top defense the year before, they lost the run of themselves last year but I think they will bounce back.

News coming through today that Byron Leftwich has a torn MCL from last night. He was going to be the Steelers' starter for whatever time Big Ben was cooling his jets.

That means Dennis Dixon or Charlie Batch will fill in for those 4 or 6 weeks. Bad news for Hines Ward, Mike Wallace and the other Steelers receivers, but possibly good for Rashard Mendenhall and even Mewelde Moore.

NFL.com's Steve Wyche claimed that Russell is the biggest draft bust in NFL history.[38] The Huffington Post named Russell one of the 13 biggest draft busts in NFL history.[39] ESPN's Bill Williamson called Russell a "talented but extremely disappointing" quarterback.[29]

His tenure with the Oakland Raiders was the shortest tenure with the drafting team among quarterbacks taken number 1 overall in the NFL draft.[40] Also among those quarterbacks, Russell has the worst starting record.[29]

Ah yeah, Russell was worse, but I mean in terms of the speed of the tailspin. Leinart was starter at the start August. He's in Kansas today, and he went through an awful quick fall from grace.

Leinart signs with Houston. 1 year deal.

First game Thursday night, don't forget your rosters!

I have not looked at the other league, but in the Payton League there are some teams who have Defensive players projected with less than 1 point for week 1.

There are plenty of DP players who could get some teams a win for the week.

How can some teams have RB's in their WR slots?

Are some RB's considered WR's???
Title: Re: NFL Fantasy Football - GAABoard Superbowl VI
Post by: AZOffaly on September 08, 2010, 09:53:00 AM
Nope. Give me an example and I'll look into it.

Basically the positions are determined by Yahoo. When you look at a player's name it will say his team, and his position beside it. Some lads have more than one position, but they are ususally #3 or #4 on the depth chart, or else are defensive players. Quite a few secondary players might be listed as Safety and Corner Back.

The other thing to watch out for is that our weekly lineups contain a FLEX position, which allows you to play *either* a running back or a wide receiver in that position. They are still RB or WR, but you can choose to put them in that spot, which is WR/RB.

Check out Beanie Wells - maybe he is in the FLEX spot?

Flexi position is an extra spot for a Running back/Wide Receiver
Its gives you a third starter from either one of those positions, you decide which.
Its not that complicated lads.

Post by: AZOffaly on September 08, 2010, 05:00:25 PM
OK, here goes. Consider the screenshot below...

visitors can't see pics , please register or login


I have highlighted a couple of things. This is a our standard weekly starting team (excludes the bench basically).

You can see I have highlighted, for clarity, Darnell Docket, to show what Yahoo consider Darnell's team (ARI) and position(Defensive Tackle DT) to be. When I talk about someone being a Wide Receiver or a Running Back (or any other position) that's what I mean, i.e. Yahoo's designation of him, not what he might actually be in real life. They are almost always the same anyway.

For an example of someone who Yahoo have designated as being eligible for 2 positions, see Andre Carter above Dockett. He is down as a Linebacker and a Defensive End. That's immaterial for our game, because both DE, LB and also DT for that matter are counted in our positions as DL (Defensive Line).

I have also highlighted the position W/R. This is the flex position. In every other position on our roster, the player you want to pick must be eligible to play that position. Example, in our two RB positions, the players must be RBs according to Yahoo. Tight Ends must be TE, Quarterbacks must be QBs and so on.

The Flex position is slightly different in that it allows the manager to select *either* a RB or a WR to fill that position. In other words you can have 2 WRs, 2 RBs and 1 Flex which is either another RB, or another WR. No other positions are eligible for the Flex (W/R) position.

In my example, you can see that I have Tim Hightower (RB) playing in the flex, while the ConViCKS have Michael Crabtree, a WR.

It's almost like a formation in soccer. I'm picking 1 QB, 3 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, , he's picking 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE.

Hope that helps.

Willing to put Calvin Johnson WR on the trading block. Number 14 overall pick in the draft. Looking for an even trade in a RB or open to offers........

This would work best for a team with poor WR's and several RB's.

No, I didn't go to any of the Wembley games. I didn't particularly fancy going over on my tobler so didn't make any effort to get tickets. None of my mates here would have any interest and the brother who is mad into it lives in the US (bar the last 6 months but he's soon heading back....to live in Tampa!).

Will find it hard to avoid checking how my guy(s) did in the game. To be honest knowing the way I am I'll probably check them and know the result but I'll still watch it.

Went to bed late last night with a 17 point lead and thought if Rivers has a decent game, even though my opponent has 3 players left I have a good shout. Looked in this morning and the gap is down to 11. It seems Kiwanuka scored 6 points overnight. Great.  ::)

Agonised over which QB to start but reckoned I had to go with Rivers. I might pay for it.

Well Rivers did enough for me last night to clinch the win though I must admit its tough on Deel Rover to rack up such a good score (with McFadden on the bench) and not get the win.

Shonn Greene's two fumbles last night could turn out to be very interesting for me.

Good craic next weekend for me with Bears v. Cowboys on Sky. It being All-Ireland Sunday it might not be very practical for me to get to watch it.

Montana Conference - Week 1 Roundup

Well, week 1 is in the books, and we are off and running again. We had some good matchups, and some surprising (good and bad) individual performance during the week, which started all the way back last Thursday.


Faithful Turfmen 119.87 - 109.59 O'Neill's Chargers

The Turfmen held out for an unlikely win, as the Chargers' Shonn Greene suffered with the rest of the New York Jets offense against the Baltimore Ravens on Monday night. Leading by just over 10 points coming into the last day's game, the Turfmen were relying on Shonn Greene to be held by Ray Lewis and the Ravens, and it came to pass. Greene contributed a measly 0.35 points as the Ravens held him to 18 yards rushing on just 6 touches, including a fumble. Surprisingly enough LT actually got most of the work for the Jets in Week 1, whatever that might mean. The Turfmen had a weak display from Matt Schaub, as the Texans stayed on the ground to beat the Colts behind Arian Foster, but Greg Jennings (WR-GB 15.10 points), Hines Ward (WR-PIT 13.40 points), and the New England Defense (22 points) made up for steady but unspectacular returns from Adrian Peterson, Justin Forsett and Carnel Williams.The Chargers would have felt confident when Jay Cutler (QB-CHI) weighed in with 16.54 points, and there were similar returns from Steve Smith (WR-CAR, 14.75 points), Jeremy Maclin (WR-PHI, 12.45 points), Rashard Mendenhall (RB-PIT, 16.75 points), Ronnie Brown (RB-MIA, 12.25 points) and the Green Bay Defense with 14 points. However, this matchup was a textbook case of Stars and Scrubs losing out to consistent solidity of the Turfmen. the Turfmen's lowest total was 6 points on the individual defense, while Chargers had 6 players with less than that. It all added up to a tight victory for the Turfmen in this inter divisional battle.

The Royal Badgers 80.27 - 126.09 New York Jets IV
A solid start for the Jets IV, and a good 45+ point victory as they overpowered the Badgers in this matchup of East and West Division teams. A feature of the Jets' performance was the solid output from the individual defense players, who contributed 34 points between them, including a pair of 12 spots from Bernard Pollard (S-HOU) and Osi Umenyiora (DE-NYG). This bolstered an already solid showing from Tom Brady (QB-NE, 19.16), Roddy White (WR-ATL, 20.55), Donald Driver (WR-GB, 13.50), Vernon Davis (TE-SF, 11.65 points) and the Eagles Defense (10 points). The Badgers couldn't really match that pace, despite a huge effort from Chris Johnson (RB-TEN). CJ2K ran for 142 yards and 2 TDs in a 25.50 point effort, but a disappointing return from all bar Jahvid Best (RB-DET, 18.80) on his team spelled defeat and an 0-1 start for the Badgers.

Craigyhill Terrors 91.61 - 105.94 RedBolts MightyOaks
A North South division match this time, and a pretty close affair in reality, which was probably decided by the contrasting performance of the quarterbacks. Whereas the MightyOaks were able to call upon San Diego signal caller Philip Rivers (16.21 points), the Terrors had the misfortune of seeing their QB (Matt Stafford of the Lions) go down with a seperated shoulder and a grand total of -0.34 points. Given the fact tht the difference in the end was just over 14 points, the importance of a swing of 16.55 at QB is self evident. Elsewhere, it was very even, with Visanthe Shiancoe (TE-MIN, 13.80), Dez Bryant (WR-DAL, 11.08 points) and the Jets Defense (17 points) top scoring for the MightyOaks, while Brandon Marshall (WR-MIA, 10.65), Frank Gore (RB-SF, 10.15), Knowshon Moreno (RB-DEN, 10.20), Darren McFadden (RB-OAK, 19.50) and the Giants D (20 points) did their stuff for the Terrors.

Galway Bay Tribesmen 147.56 - Ruthless Rossies 100.60
This clash of East and West division teams was notable for featuring the top scoring team in the Montana Conference as the Tribesmen amassed over 147 points. Despite the relatuvely high totals, the tie was never really in doubt once the early games were over on Sunday. The reason is that both Peyton Manning (QB-IND) and Matt Forte (RB-CHI) went fantasy mad. Manning contributed 29.66 points in the Colts' losing effort against the Texans, while Matt Forte's receiving threat was well in evidence as he chalked up 31.05 points in the win over the Lions. The Tribesmen had a couple of mediocre performances to go with the big two, but Tim Hightower (RB-ARI, 10.70 points (despite two stupid fumbles)), Neil Rackers (K-HOU), the Miami D (15 points) and Rams S Oshiomogho Atogwe (12 points) all contributed heavily to the win. For the Rossies it was more a case of even distribution with only 3 big time returns. Miles Austin lived up to his billing as a #1 type receiver for the Cowboys with 25.30 in a losing effort against the Redskins and another NFC East player, Trent Cole (DE-PHI) added 10 points. The last notable contribution was the Bears D with 12 points, and that was never going to be enough to reel in such a big score from the Tribesmen.

hegan's helmets 136.68 - Big Apple Orchards 86.92
Hegan's helmets gave the Tribesmen a run for their money in this 50 point demolition of perennial front runner, Big Apple Orchards. It may have been a North-South division match, but it was never really a battle as the helmets had far too much for the Orchards. Given the fact that the helmets had Kevin Kolb (QB-PHI) knocked out after only 0.53 points, and went into battle with only 2 individual defenses, it makes their performance all the more impressive. Of course, having an absolutely monster performance from Houston Running Back Arian Foster will help, as the second year undrafted Tennessee Volunteer absolutely tore up the Colts to the tune of 231 running yards and 3 TDs, for an eye popping 39.90 points. Marry that with 17.95 points from old reliable Reggie Wayne (WR-IND), 15.10 points from Eagles RB LeSean McCoy, 21 points from Dallas Clark (TE-IND), 12 points from Mason Crosby (K-GB) and 13 points from a Ravens 'D' that looked like the Ravens D, and it's easy to see where the win came from. Mind you, that Colts-Texans game was particularly good to the helmets as it produced 85.6 of the helmets' points. The Orchards had some valiant battlers, but Eli Manning (QB-NYG, 13.16), LArry Fitzgerald (WR-ARI, 11.15), Adrian Wilson (S-ARI, 18,00) and Mathias Kiwanuka (DE-NYG, 15.00) were unable to inspire the full team to deliver enough.

Shower of Tramps 88.82 - CAPT PATs VIKINGS 99.06
The only game of the week to not feature a 100 point team, albeit falling only .94 short, saw Capt Pat's Vikings hold onto an 10+ point win over the Tramps, depite not fielding a kicker. Joe Flacco (QB-BAL) hardly inspired the Vikings either, as he was held to 2.06 points by the tough Jets 'D', but ironically his WR Anquin Boldin ended up with 14.50 points in the same game. Antonio Gate (TE-SD), the Chargers fantasy banker had 14.80 points while the Tennessee Defense had 19 points in the only other 10 point plus performance for the winners. The Tramps only had two defensive performances to be pleased about, as the Steelers D contributed 13 points, to go with the individual performance of Shaun Ellis (DE-NYJ) and his 11 points. Not enough, unfortunately for the Tramps, and they find themselves 0-1 after the first week.

The Curragh Rams 75.89 - 103.81 Smackdown Clowns
The dubious honour of the lowest score of the week falls to the Curragh Rams as the Kildare men continue to experience a miserable late summer. Chad Ochocinco (WR-CIN) did his best to carry the load with 29.95 points in a great effort, but only Tony Romo (QB-DAL) and his 11.64 came close to doing enough to help him. On the Clowns' side, it wasn't sensational but it was more than enough to seal a 28 point victory as everyone's favourite sleeper Hakeem Nicks (WR-NYG) awoke spectacularly with 25.75 points in a 3 TD effort against the hapless Panthers. Pierre Thomas (RB-NO) conributed 13.30 points while Jamaal Charles (RB-KC) had a nice 12 point effor on Monday night. Ahmad Bradshaw was solid with the Giants' RB picking up 12.65 points in the same game that Nicks owned, and that combination was the difference for the Clowns as they got away to a 1-0 start.


Payton Conference to follow...

I got the win with the lowest score. After not having a kicker and Flacco getting very low points against the jets and no points from simms walker and very low production from my running backs. I don't know how I got through.

Plus what happens if I put in a claim when I was in 1st yet today I'm back in 14th? How does that work?

Well Rivers did enough for me last night to clinch the win though I must admit its tough on Deel Rover to rack up such a good score (with McFadden on the bench) and not get the win.

Shonn Greene's two fumbles last night could turn out to be very interesting for me.

Good craic next weekend for me with Bears v. Cowboys on Sky. It being All-Ireland Sunday it might not be very practical for me to get to watch it.

well done seanie , i'm really looking forward to this weeks games against bombidal  ;D seem to recall him saying a year or 2 ago that if you couldn't win with Brady in your team then you should forgot about it itf thats the case i haven't a chance as he has Brady and welker  :o

Payton Conference - Week 1 Roundup

Faithful Turfmen 'B' 94.06 - 79.56 The ConVICKS
A l ow scoring game to start us off in the Payton Conference, thanks largely to a dour defensive struggle between the Jets and Ravens on Monday night. This tie featured few enough stellar performances, although the New England Patriots' slightly surprising 22 points gained against the Bengals did bolster the Turfmen's effort. Greg Jennings, the Green Bay wideout contributed 15.10 points, Kansas City RB Jamaal Charles added 12 and Arizona RB Tim Hightower contributed 10,70 points of his own. It was enough to squeak by a disappointing ConVICKS performance, for whom Colts' warhorse Reggie Wayne (WR) had 17.95 points, Steve Smith, WR of Carolina had 14.75 points and Chargers TE Antonio Gates added 14.80 points. The Green Bay 'D' rounded off the high scoring for the ConVICKS with 14 points. Despite having more high scorers than the Turfmen, there were too many 0s and 1s and even minus figures to really mount a serious challenge, but with Smith, Wayne and Gates, the ConVICKS will expect higher returns most other weeks.

puppet master 79.87 - 76.13 North Antrim Nuggets
Another very low scoring game, as neither team breached the 80 mark, but a win is a win and puppet master will be delighted to escape with a victory despite having 3 inactive positions. Chris Johnson (RB-TEN) was the puppet master (pun intended) this week as he chipped in with 25.50 points, while he was supported by Detroit RB Jahvid Best (18.80 points) and the Eagles Defense (10 points). Garrett Hartley, the New Orleans kicker will have better weeks than his minus 2 return, but it didn't matter in the windup. For the Nuggets, the injury (and hitherto poor performance) of Eagles QB Kevin Kolb certainly didn't help matters, but with 5 positions returning more than 10 points (Brandon Marshall (WR-MIA - 10.65), Frank Gore (RB-SF - 10.15), Mercedes Lews (TE-JAC, 15.55), Mason Crosby (K-GB, 12) and the Steelers D (13)) they should have had enough to reel in the modest target set by the masters. Unfortunately 6 positions returning less than 1 point tells it's own story of how that worked out. In a game decided by less than 4 points, every position does indeed count.

L'Esprit de Biff 100.29- 71.74 Rehab is 4 Quitters
The first ton up in this conferences was enough for past champion L'Esprit de Biff to prevail against newcomer Rehab is 4 Quitters, who registered the lowest score of the week. Quitters were certainly not helped by a combination of events, from Houston's great day running the ball against the Colts (which meant Matt Schaub (QB) didn't have to do much more than hand the ball off,a nd Andre Johnson had nothing to catch), Calvin Johnson's ((WR-DET) harsh disallowed TD against Da Bears, Kevin Boss' (TE-NYG) injury and Darrelle Revis' not being thrown at. There will undoubtedly be better days for a roster boasting such names, but this weekend, only the Jets 'D' showed up with 17 points. L'Esprit will be happy to have the win in the books, if not particularly enamoured with the manner of the win.  Larry Fitzgerald (WR-ARI - 11.15) did score a TD, but the fact that Derek Anderson missed him on 12 of 15 throws does not inspire confidence for the future. Knowshon Moreno (RB-DEN) added 10.20 points, while the Saints 'D' added 13. The rest were solid, if unspectacular and managed to do enough for a 28+ point victory.

Shrek's Ogres 88.09 - Carlow for Sam 2011 77.57
Another low scoring encounter in a week of them in the Payton Conference saw a major shock as perennial favourite (running under new name) Carlow for Sam 2011 was defeated by 10+ points by rookie Shrek's Ogres. Indianapolis Colts TE Dallas Clark, with 21 points, was the main man for the Ogres, and the fact that only really Donald Driver (veteran GB WR with 13.50 points) managed to help out significantly was a major factor in the winning total being just 88 points. For Carlow, it's a week best forgotten, but at least there were hopeful signs from Rashard Mendenhall (RB-PIT, 16.75 points), Jeremy MAclin (WR-PHI, 12.45 points) and Ronnie Brown (RB-MIA, 12.25 points).

Coolera Bears 147.56 - mayo warriors 132.59
What an introduction to the world of GAABoard Fantasy NFL for Sligo rookies Coolera Bears, as themselves and Connacht rivals, and 3rd place finisher last year, mayo warriors served up a right barnburner. The clash of South and West division rivals went the way of the newcomer, but it was the highest grossing tie of the week, across both conferences. The Bears can really thank 4 positions for their big score, as remarkably only that amount grossed double digits. However a solid combination of 6,7 and 8s combined with really big totals from some positions did the trick. Fittingly enough, given the team owner, pride of place goes to the real Bears' RB Matt Forte who had 31.05 points. Also contributing heavily to the debut win were Colts WR Austin Collie, and his 27.15 points, San Diego QB Philip Rivers and his 16.21 points and, again fittingly, the Bears 'D', with 12 points. The warriors' brave effort was headlined by loudmouth Chad Ochocino (WR-CIN) and his 29.95 points, but also impressing were Bears QB Jay Cutler (16.54), Atlanta WR Roddy White (20.55 points), Ahmad Bradshaw (RB-NYG-12.65 points) the Baltimore D (13 points) and Giants' DE Mathias Kiwanuka (15 points), It's fair to surmise that the warriors won't lose too many games if they average 130 points, but in this case the support cast just fell short against their Bears counterparts.

Crossmaglen Hitmen 87.34 - Old Jack City 120.31
They say revenge is a dish best served cold. If so the Old Jack City squad will be able to attest to that this week. Last years conference final saw the Hitmen run out winners in a nailbiter, but the rebadged Old Jack City turned the tables in style with better than 30 points to spare over their 2009 conquerers. A tragic effort by the Bengals Defense (-1) threatened to derail the ambitions of City, but Tom Brady (QB-NE, 19.16), Miles Austin (WR-DAL, 25.30), Wes Welker (WR-NE, 23.20), Neil Rackers (K-HOU, 11), Bernard Pollard (S - HOU, 12) and Trent Cole (DE - PHI, 10 points) all contributed heavily in making up for that setback. The result wasn't really in doubt when Welker and Brady went off, and Austin put the tin hat on it, but the Hitmen couldn't really respond in a meaningful manner. Too many men left their A game at home, and while all positions contributed something positive, only Tony Romo (QB-DAL, 11.64) and LeSean McCoy (RB-PHI, 15.10) did enough to impact the tie. People like Knox, Jones Drew and Garcon will be better on other weeks, but it wasn't to be in week 1, and Old (Jack) Jack City can bask in the redemptive glow of this win. The Hitmen may retort that they 'Won the one that mattered'.

Ballyhaise Bills 143.82 - 116.71 Red Hand Helmets
It's a fair bet that if you get 70.56 points from two starters, you have a good chance to win your tie on any given week, and that is how it worked out for the Bills as they saw off a solid challenge from the Red Hand Helmets in the second tie to produce more than 100 points each. The fact that the Bills 143.82 is only good enough for second in the conference is testament to the quality of the Coolera Bears' performance, but it was very impressive nonetheless. The two men that did all the damage were Peyton Manning (QB-IND, 29.66) and the star of week 1 Houston RB Arian Foster (39.90 points). They were ably helped out by Anquan Boldin (WR-BAL, 14.50) and Visanthe Shiancoe (TE-MIN, 13.80), but suffice to say that without one or both of those big time performances, the Bills would have struggled mightily here. The Helmets will curse their luck that they drew one of only 4 teams with better totals this week, but they will be given hope by the performances of Eli Manning (QB-NYG, 13.16), Hines Ward (WR-PIT, 13.40), Pierre Thomas (RB-NO, 13.30), Vernon Davis (TE-SF, 11.65) and the Titans' D (19 points). Beanie Wells (RB-ARI), a late scratch on Sunday, missing didn't help, nor did the underwhelming outings from Malcolm Floyd (WR-SD), and Adrian Peterson (RB-MIN), but it would have taken a special outing to beat the Bills on that display.

Title: NFL Fantasy Football - GAABoard Superbowl VI - Week 2
Post by: AZOffaly on September 15, 2010, 11:03:25 AM
In the Montana Conference we see some interesting Week 2 Fixtures as some teams look to kick start their season, while others obviously hope to keep early momentum going.

The first fixture on our slate sees an all East and West division matchup as the Faithful Turfmen and New York Jets IV put their 1-0 records on the line while next up, The Royal Badgers face a tough task against top scoring Galway Bay Tribesmen in a bid to get off the mark.

An intra North and South division matchup sees the 0-1 Craigyhill Terrors try to redeem themselves against the division leading hegan's helmets while another North and South division battle, the O'Neill's Chargers will try to get their first win against the 1-0 RedBolts MightyOaks.

Another North and South battle, this time of 0-1 teams, is next up as the 6th place Shower of Tramps and 7th place Big Apple Orchards lock horns to try and avoid starting 0-2, and at the same time over in the other division, we have a pure East and West division battle. The 0-1 pair of the Curragh Rams (east) take on the Ruthless Rossies (west) with both sides anxious not to let a gap appear already, this early in the season.

The final game of the week sees an inter division matchup as the North and South division 3rd place team, Capt Pats Vikings, takes on the East and West division 4th place squad, Smackdown Clowns, in a battle of unbeatens.


Over to the Payton Conference, where a similar situation obviously exists, given that we only have one week in the books. First off we have an all South and West battle, and an all Offaly battle, as the unbeaten pair of Faithful Turfmen 'B' and L'Esprit de Biff face up in an early rivalry game.

Next on the docket, there is another intra division meeting of 1-0 teams as the North and East's puppet master and Shrek's Ogres square off as 2nd plays 3rd. In the other division, bottom placed Rehab is 4 Quitters will try to get going with a contest against the 2nd placed Ballyhaise Bills.

The pivot game in the seven game schedule features an all North and East clash as the 7th placed North Antrim Nuggets attempt to get off the mark against the unlucky Red Hand Helmets while in the same division the 0-1 Carlow for Sam 2011 will be looking for much better things against the 5th place and also fresh off a defeat Crossmaglen Hitmen.

The penultimate game is a South and West division clash between 0-1 6th placed the ConVICKS and the free scoring Conference #1 ranked Coolera Bears while the week closes off with a potential doozey between the 0-1 mayo warriors (who scored 132.59 points in week 1) and the 1st place North and East division Old Jack City who scored 120.31 in a winning Week 1 effort.

Best of luck everyone, and remember to check injury news, and the waiver wire.

Also, I noticed a query about your roster being locked. The roster is not locked at all, only when individual positions have played will that position be locked. If you have guys that are NA or on IR, you can drop them to the bench assuming a) Their team has not yet played and b) You have someone to replace them. The only restriction is that you will not be able to pick up new players once the games have started for the week.

You can bid for them at any time, you just won't get them until they come off waivers, depending on your waiver priority.

They will be assigned off waivers, to the highest positioned bidder, today. Not sure what time.

Just took a look, I'd say the waivers are in the process of being applied. Remember it's just gone 8AM eastern in the US, so this would be about the time. On the add players now, the player I put in for a waiver on is listed in 'All Available Players' but is not actually available to add (no green cross). I'd say it's because they are in the middle of working through them.

On a seperate note, any player on waivers who was not claimed is now a Free Agent (FA). That means you can pick him up immediately without affecting your waiver slot.

*ALL* free agents will again go on the waiver wire when the games begin next Sunday.

Well he'll be the starter. Can't see much coming from Hightower after his 2 fumbles. One of which nearly cost them the game. Plus Larod Stephens-Howling is beginning to eat into his carries. Picked Hardesty as my RB3 and he got injured before the season even started. Don't have a great team really. Only freak weeks from Manning and Forte got me a big score week 1 which booted my arse back to the end of the queue.

good spot GBB. Whiz sat with Hightower on the plane back to Phoenix apparently, and told him that the fumbles were not acceptable. With Beanie back, if Hightower looks anyway unsafe, then LSH will start getting more work. Hightower's real value is going to be the 2nd down dump off throws when Wells comes back, which could be this week. However, they do like Hightower, so if he sorts himself out he'll be grand.

Ah Rossie... Never, ever drop Welker in a point per catch league. Even without yds or tds he'll get 6/7 receptions and will almost always guarantee you 10+ points.

Aye, but they are thinking of standard leagues.

In a std league Welker wasnt a great play if you take out the two TD's (which you can never hang your hat on). He only got about 60 yds receiving, which would be approx 6 points.

But in a PPR- even leaving out the TD's- he was good for 14 points because of the 8 receptions.

Welker has led the league in receptions for the last 3 years or so with around 110-120 per year, which makes him a beast in the PPR format.

can we put a time limit on trades? This way we dont have them hanging for days or weeks?

I am willing to trade Calvin Johnson for a top 20 RB
Or Andre Johnson for a top 10 RB +1

I never realized how much craic this Fantasy Football could be. I put in fantasy teams in premiership soccer before but this is completely different. Because I'm in America i am now able to carry a conversation with the yanks all about the draft and my team and who's who.....

I think I have a team on the way to the playoffs! Heavy on the WR's light on the RB's but I'll get there with a few more trades.......

Iceman - You mustn't have gone for Brandon Jacobs. That could have been the making of ya. Very hard to work something with trades for RB's by the look of it. More depth at other positions.

I went for Brandon Jackson from GB but didn't get him. I messed up with the waivers in all honesty but I have the debth now at WR to trade for something in the next couple of weeks.
There are some solid teams in our league -I came last this week but its my first time out and i think I'll do well overall. Bit of craic if nothing else.  Fairly expands the knowledge on the NFL and keeps the interest level peaked!

Title: Re: NFL Fantasy Football - GAABoard Superbowl VI
Post by: AZOffaly on September 17, 2010, 10:11:53 AM
Howya eiled,

What are you struggling with? I'll try and help out if I can.

Let's start at the beginning. After the draft you have now got a roster with starters and bench players. Obviously you try to put what you think are your best players on the starting team each week to get points from them.

Occasionally, or frequently, throughout the season, you might want to pick up different player because of things like injury or general uselessness.

To do that you basically have 3 options, which I will describe below (in straightforward terms. There are other ways to do all of this, but I'll try to keep it simple).

1) The Trade. - A Trade is basically an agreement to swap one of more players between two managers in the league. If you notice a player on another team that you like the look of, and you have something you think the other manager might be interested in, you can offer a trade. You offer a trade as follows.

a) Go to 'MY TEAM'.
b) On the top bar select 'Trade'
c) Choose the team you want to trade with
d) Tick the box beside the player(s) you want and select 'Continue' at the bottom.
e) Tick the box beside the player(s) you are offering in return and select 'Continue' at the bottom
f)  Add a note for the other manager, and click 'Send Trade Proposal'.

Now the other manager will get a notification that says a trade has been proposed, and they will either accept, refuse or make a counter offer to you. You will be notified either way, (make sure you watch your email).

Assuming the other manager agrees, there is then a 2 day period where the rest of the managers in the league are notified of the trade that is about to happen, and they can object to me about it. If there are enough objections, or I feel it is unfair (one team is getting ripped off either deliberately or accidentally), I can veto (cancel) the trade.

That is trading.

2 - The Waiver Wire

The Waiver wire is another way of picking up players, but in this case NOBODY owns them. The concept of a Waiver Wire (as opposed to immediate pickups) was born in Fantasy to stop unfair advantages. For example, if I lived in Arizona, and was watching a game on Monday night and saw the best running back get injured, it's not fair that I could jump onto Yahoo, and pick up his backup while the lads in Ireland are asleep.

Therefore this concept of a Waiver Wire was enacted. Think of a Waiver Wire as a holding pen, where players are held while managers have a chance to say they are interested in picking them up.

Now, the way it works is as follows.

a) All players not on a fantasy team are placed on the Waiver Wire EVERY WEEK from the moment the first game kicks off, until the day after the last game of the week.
b) Outside of those days, only players dropped by a fantasy team go on the waiver wire. All other players are called 'Free Agents' (see point 3).
c) In order to pick up someone on the waiver wire, select MY TEAM, and then 'ADD' from the top menu.
d) You will be taken to the available players list, and you can filter on various positions, etc.
e) When you see the player you want, you will see that he has his name, team, next opponent and the letter 'W' with a date after it. The 'W' means he is on the waiver wire, and the date is the date he will become a free agent (again, see point 3 below). During the game weekend, as I mentioned above, ALL players will be 'W' with the same end date (which will be the day after the last game).
f) There will also be a green cross beside the player, and this is what you click if you want to submit a 'Waiver Claim', basically saying you are interested in picking him up.
g) When you select the green cross, you will need to tick a player you want to drop to make room for this new guy, unless you have an empty spot, and then click 'Add this player and drop another player'.
h) You will then be presented with a confirmation screen where you click 'Add this player'. (It will tell you the lad you are dropping as well).

How do you know if your claim is successful???? This is the bit some people struggle with. JUST BECAUSE YOU CLAIM A PLAYER DOES NOT MEAN YOU WILL GET HIM. Why not? Read on.

A claim on a player is just that, a claim. It is not a guarantee. On the Waiver wire, every manager has what is called a Waiver Priority. This is a number between 1 and 14 (the number of managers in the league). If two or more managers make a claim on the same player, the manager with the lowest number wins. So if you have a waiver priority of 11, and I have one of 9, then I will win if we both claim the same player.

IMPORTANT NOTE - The Waiver priority is re-set each week, with the person with the best record getting 14, and the worst team getting 1.

IMPORTANT NOTE 2 - Each time you have a successful claim, your waiver priority is reset to 14 for that week. So if in our example above, I won that claim, I would then be waiver priority 14, the person that was 10th, would move up to 9, you would move up to 10, and so on.

You know if your claim is successful on the day that the player comes off waivers. Yahoo looks at who (if any) have claimed him, and assigns the player to the owner with the best waiver priority. An email then goes to all owners who tried to claim the player.

3. Free Agents
Free Agency is the easiest way to pick up players, in terms of understanding. Waiver Priority doesn't come into it, and the player immediately joins your roster, so you don't have to wait to see if you are successful.

The important thing to note about Free Agency is that it is NOT AVAILABLE during the times the games are on, as all players go on Waivers for that period (see 2 above).

The rest of the week, most players not owned by someone else will be Free Agents, and only players recently dropped by other managers will go to Waivers.

To pick up a player off Free Agency, do the following.

a) Go to MY TEAM and select 'ADD' from the top menu.
b) Look for a player you like, and if he has his name, team, opponent and the letters 'FA' beside him, then he's available for you to pick up immediately.
c) Click the green cross beside his name.
d) You will then have to select a player to drop to make room for him, unless you have empty spots on your roster.
e) Click 'Add this player and drop another'.
f) You will then get the confirmation screen, click 'Add this Player'.


At this point, congrats, you have successfully added the free agent. If you look at 'MY TEAM' you will see him there straight away.




So, to summarise.

1) TRADE - When you offer to swap one of your players for someone on another team. Takes 2 days after the other manager accepts, assuming no one objects.

2) WAIVER WIRE - When you claim a player on Waivers (W), normally during the weekend as games are being player, or shortly after the player is dropped by someone else. Success or Failure depends on Waiver Priority if other people also claim the same player. Becomes effective when the specified date is reached, e.g. W (21 Sep) would be effective on the 21 Sep.

3) FREE AGENTS - When you immediately pick up an unowned players, who is not on the Waiver Wire. No waiting period, no priorities. First come first served. NOTE - This is NOT available during the Waiver Wire period.

Hope this helps

Because people need backups for bye weeks and you never know when an RB could get injured. One that's a backup this week could be next weeks starter with 100 yds and a TD.

There is no point keeping a load of back up running backs, you will need to trade them for other positions.
Title: Re: NFL Fantasy Football - GAABoard Superbowl VI
Post by: mc_grens on September 21, 2010, 01:21:58 AM
Backs are the most injured position on the field. It's well worth holding onto a guy like Johnsthon Stewart, even though he's probably at best a flex starter, in case DeAngelo Williams gets hurt. Likewise if you've three top RB's it's worth holding them unless you've a serious need elsewhere. All it takes is one planted foot leading to an ACL injury, or a concussion from a big hit to make that third RB a vital investment.

Post by: AZOffaly on September 24, 2010, 12:59:19 PM
Seeing as how I'm a bit late this week, I think I'll do it 'Janus' style. (Look it up :D) If it works out, this might be the best way of doing recaps etc, because I'm usually a little less pressured on a Friday.

Anyhow, with the previews of this weekends action, and a nod to the past week, here we go for the Montana Conference. Please note comments in the preview are based on the current line up.

First on the slate is the clash of two unbeatens in the East and West division, and current incumbents of first and second place respectively as the Galway Bay Tribesmen take on the Faithful Turfmen. The Tribesmen are coming off a hard fought 125.60 - 116.65 victory over the Royal Badgers, and will be confident having top scored by quite a distance in this conference over the first 2 weeks. Payton Manning (QB-IND) is coming off two big weeks, and Matt Forte (RB-CHI) has been a revelation as he makes his way back to 2008 form in the Chicago passing attack as Jay Cutler's primary dump off guy. Tim Hightower (RB-ARI) may suffer slightly with the return of Beanie Wells, but all the indications are that Hightower will still get the most work, and be the passing back, at least initially on Wells' return. Last week big performances from the aforementioned trio were the backbone of the Tribesmen's victory, and they will need to replicate, and possibly get more out of Randy Moss (WR-NE) that to ensure victory here.The Turfmen moved onto a 2-0 mark with a good win over the NEw York Jets IV, and would have been delighted to see Matt Schaub (QB-HOU) bounce back after a poor opening weekend. Adrian Peterson (RB-MIN) also looked more like himself, while Chris Cooley (TE-WAS) continued his nice start on the season. Greg Jennings (WR-GB) was disappointing in what should be a high powered offense in Green Bay, and he will need to pick it up for the Turfmen to be serious candidates. Hines Ward (WR-PIT) struggled as the Steelers went from Dixon to Batch (3rd to 4th choice Starters at QB), so this week's matchup is unlikely to set pulses racing as Batch will start against the fast starting (but probably falsely positioned) Tampa Bay Buccs.

Next up in the Montana Conference sees the Royal Badgers (0-2), bottom of the East-West division, taking on the 1-1 Ruthless Rossies. Given the fact that the Badgers scored 116.65 points last week, they can be pretty angry at Brett Favre (QB-MIN). They're not the first team to live and die by the old gunslinger, but Favre's 3 INTs and -3.50 points really hurt in a 9 point loss. On the bright side, the performances of Malcolm Floyd (WR-SD) in Vincent Jackson's continued absence in San Diego, and especially Jahvid Best (RB-DET) will be bright spots. Best had a ridiculous day the last time out as he chalked up 42.60 points against a Philadelphia Eagles defense who did not make their name giving up days like that to rookie running backs, even if it was mostly through the air. This week Best faces a formidable Vikings Run defense, so any production may need to be through the air again. Can lightening strike twice? Better to plan for not. Also fristrating for the Badgers was the poor outing for Chris Johnson (RB-TEN) as the Steel Curtain slammed shut on him for only 6.65 points, but the glass half full perspective there is that Johnson takes on a NYG defense that was gashed by a notoriously brittle Colts run game last Sunday night. For the Badgers to feel good, you would think Best, Johnson, Favre and Floyd will all have to have significant double digit outings this week. On the Rossies side of the ball, they are coming off a great win against the Curragh Rams (134.26 - 125.13). Miles Austin (WR-DAL) continued to be the man in big D as he added 20.10 points, and coming up against a Texans defense that gives up as much as it does through the air, you have to like Austin in Week 3. Drew Brees (QB-NO), Wes Welker (WR-NE) and Eddie Royal (WR-DEN) are others that are chipping in with big points for the Rossies, but Reggie Bush's broken leg is going to hurt the Rossies, no pun intended. The Rossies look like replacing Bush with Ricky Williams (RB-MIA) and Heath Miller (TE-PIT) with Dustin Keller, the Jets TE. Keller should contribute more than Miller has been doing, but a lot will depend on Williams and Joseph Addai (RB-IND) stepping up to the mark.

The third match features the last placed 0-2 Big Apple Orchards and the 1-1 Craigyhill Terrors in what looks like a mismatch at first glance, given the Orchards have just 175 points through 2 weeks, as opposed to the Terrors' 229. A closer look doesn't inspire much hope for the Orchard, although Eli Manning (QB-NYG), Larry Fitzgerald (WR-ARI), Devin Hestor (WR-CHI) and Thomas Jones (RB-KC) can all go off at verious times. The problems are many however. Fitzgerald is suffering through the rough genesis of the Derek Anderson 'era' as QB of the Cardinals, while Thomas Jones is affected by sharing time with another quality RB in Jamaal Charles. Devin Hestor doesn't seem to have really progressed into a main receiver, and Johnny Knox, Matt Forte and Tight End Greg Olsen seem to have passed him on the targets front up there in the Windy City. Ryan Matthews (RB-SD) tweeting that he had a high ankle sprain (3 bad words in Fantasy league) also contributes to a feeling of unease around the Orchards. In contrast the Terrors are coming off a good bounce back week as they totted up 138 points in a win over the hegan's helmets in week 2. Primarily responsible for this win was the standout performances of DeSean Jackson (WR-PHI), who is presumably a paid up member of the Michael Vick fan club, Knowshown Moreno (RB-DEN) and especially a monster day for SF Runner Frank Gore. Gore is a solid, solid producer, and this week he will not fear the Chiefs defense too much. Darren McFadden (RB-OAK) will be licking his lips at the thoughts of running at the soft Cardinals underbelly while Carson Palmer, QB-CIN, will hope to have a better outing against the Panthers than the stingy Ravens. Knowshown Moreno ran riot against the Seahawks, and the Colts 'D' sans Bob Sanders might be exploitable on the ground as well.

Following on from that, we have an interesting clash of 4th and 5th place East-West teams, as a pair of 1-1 sides clash. The Smackdown Clowns are coming off a very disappointing 40 point mauling by Capt Pat's Vikings, and will be keen to rebound. Aaron Rogers (QB-GB) lived up to his billing with a 22.90 point return, and Pierre Thomas (RB=NO) was fine with 13.15 points of his own. Apart from that, there were too many underperformers and that will have to be sorted for Week 3. You would expect better than 28 points total out of Hakeem Nicks (WR-NYG), Jamaal Charles (RB-KC), Jason Witten (TE-DAL) and Ahmad Bradshaw (RB-NYG) and if the Clowns are to bounce back, they will need closer to 40+ points from that quartet. As mentioned, Charles is impacted by the fact that Thomas Jones eats some of his carries, and Bradshaw has a similar issue with Jacobs in New York. Witten had the concussion, so there were mitigating circumstances. This week the Clowns will hope his timeshare guys find the endzone to boost their totals, and that Nicks and Witten can get on the end of some more passes. Opponents the New York Jets IV are likewise coming off a loss to the Turfmen, but at least the Jets IV did manage to amass 101 points. Michael Vick has been a bonus for the Jets IV, as he has won the QB job in Philly, and added 17 points last week, However, playing the matchups, the Jets IV are going with Tom Brady instead this week against the Bills, and it's hard to question that move. The next 3 names on the Jets IV starting roster are formidable written down. Roddy White (WR-ATL), Donald Driver (WR-GB) and Ray Rice (RB-BAL). White and Driver have delivered thus far, but Rice has struggled in a Ravens' offense that has flattered to deceive, albeit against two good defenses. This week Rice faces the Browns, so that might be about to change.

The next match on the slate is a top of the table clash in the North-South division as the 2-0 pair of the RedBolt MightyOaks and the Capt Pat's Vikings meet up. Starting with the top ranked Capt. Pat's Vikings, they'll be delighted to have put the hammer down against the Smackdown Clowns, as mentioned above, and will be happy with how Donovan McNabb is setting in as QB of WAS. He was quiet enough against the Cowboys in Week 1, but Week 2 against the Texans was a break out of 21.52 points. This week against Saint Louis will hardly have him shaking in his boots. Another newcomer, Anquan Boldin (WR-BAL) has made a nice start to his Ravens career, in a spluttering offense, so any recovery by Flacco against the Browns will undoubtedly raise his profile as well. Santana Moss (WR-WAS), McNabb's teammate is another who will enjoy the Rams secondary on Sunday. Antonio Gates (TE-SD) is obviously a big time fantasy producer, but the running back tandem of DeAngelo Williams (CAR) and `Jerome Harrison (CLE) will have to step it up significantly if the Vikings are to really push on in this league. The MighyOaks will be leaning heavily on Philip Rivers (QB-SD), Maurice Jones-Drew (RB-JAC), Cedric Benson (RB-CIN) and Visanthe Shiancoe (TE, MIN), but only really Rivers and Shiancoe have stepped up to the mark thus far. The WR trio of Crabtree (SF), Bryant (DAL) and Henderson (NO) have big upside, but if you got all of them contributing heavily then that's a big bonus.
KC, Houston and Atlanta respectively may allow for one or more of those WRs delivering such a bonus in week 3.

The penultimate game in this conference is an all North-South division matchup between the 3rd place hegan's helmets and the 6th place O'Neill's Chargers. The 1-1 Helmets are coming off a defeat to the Craigyhill Terrors, but are in decent shape. Miami QB chad Henne is still a bit of a worry as he is solid rather than a stud, but Reggie Wayne at WR is a fantasy owner's manna from heaven, when healthy. The old man is still Peyton Manning's favourite target, along with Dallas Clark. In a happy coincidence, the TE is also owned by the helmets which gives them approximately 2/3rds of the Colts receiving yards. LeSean McCoy (RB-PHI) had a big week and should continue to impress as he benefits from Weaver's injury. Vick doesn't help McCoy because the triggerman likes to run it himself as well, rather than dump it off, but McCoy's called plays worked well last week.Arien Foster (RB-HOU) had a quiet week last week, but the Texans had to come back against the 'Skins, which would have meant more passing. This week he sees the Dallas Cowboys, so it may be closer early on, which means he has the chance to run again.The Chargers will be disappointed to only score 99 points in a loss last week, but there are some reasons to be hopeful for them also. Jay Cutler (QB-CHI) is going pass happy in Chicago, and Steve Smith (WR-CAR) and Austin Collie (WR-IND) are coming off nice weeks. Shonn Greene (RB-NYJ) Rashad Mendenhall (RB-PIT), Ronnie Brown (RB-MIA) and Tony Gonzalez )TE-KC) have potential to be high scoring threats, but all 4 had poor weeks in week 2, and cannot afford that again in week 3.

Finally in the Montana Conference, we have the 1-1 Shower of Tramps from the North-South division going up against the 0-2 Curragh Rams from the East West Division. Ironically this is actually a midlands derby of Offaly and Kildare. The Shower of Tramps are coming off a very nice week where The Pittsburgh Steelers Defense dominated against the Titans and Chris Johnson, to the tune of 37 points, but on an individual basis Matt Ryan (QB-ATL) had his way with the Cardinals while Andre Johnson (WR-HOU) proved why he is regarded as the best WR in the game. There is a solid support cast with Steven Jackson (RB-STL), Brandon Jackson (RB-GB) and Jermichael Finley (TE-GB) all capable of contributing heavily, but you suspect the season will depend on the third level guys like Steve Smith of the Giants at WR and Marques Colston (WR-NO). A couple of big weeks from them will likely mean wins for the Tramps. On the Rams side, you can't help but be frustrated and disappointed when you score 125 points, have 7 players in double figures and still lose by 9. The Defensive side of the ball is really holding the fort for the Rams as Cincinnati D, Brandon Flowers (CB-KC), Mario Williams (DE, HOU) and rookie Ndamukong Suh (DT-DET) all scored heavily in week 2. On offense, only Tony Romo (QB-DAL), Calvin Johnson (WR-DET) and CLinton Portis (RB-WAS) delivered much in Week 2, but even they will need to pick up the pace,and get help from the likes of Chad Ochocinqo.(WR-CIN).


The Peyton Conference will follow.

I am throwing Mike Vick up for Trade for anyone interested or weak on the QB side.
I want a RB in return.  Peyton conference.

For those willing to give away decent RB's, allow me to up that.

Larry Fitz for any RB who is a starter, carries at least 60% of his team rush attempts and doesn't hand over to somebody else on the goal line. That's the first drafted receiver in the league there people.

In fairness, Anderson will throw the ball - I'd prefer to have him than Leinart. He might throw three INT's as well, but that's not Larry's problem.

I still think it's a hell of a lot better offer than Mike Vick who's one bad game away from the bench again.

Payton Conference

The Faithful Turfmen B squad face a tough task in Week 2 as they attempt to bounce back from a bad loss in the Offaly derby to L'Esprit de Biff. The Baltimore offensive struggles have really held the Turfmen back Joe Flacco (QB) and Ray Rice (RB) haven't hit the heights as of yet. Cleveland may be an antidote to that this week however. Jamaal Charle's woes in terms of Thomas Jones taking his carries means he has to break one to be really dangerous. Of course he is more than capable of it, and if the Ravens duo explode, then the likes of Greg Jennings (WR-GB) and Charles may just spark the 'B' team into life. Facing down the Turfmen this week are the formidable 2-0 Ballyhaise Bills, and unlike their real life namesakes, the Bills are going very well in second place in the South-West division. Payton Manning (QB-IND) and Visanthe Shiancoe (TE-MIN) are the backbones, but there is an all round solid squad there, including Percy Harvin, Anquan Boldin, Arien Foster, Clinton Portis and even the mercurial CJ Spiller. Spiller is being held back in Buffalo, but if he breaks through the Fred Jackson roadblock, he may just be the player they, and Ballyhaise, thought they drafted.

Next on the docket is the clash of the 1-1 puppet master and the 0-2 Carlow for Sam 2011 squad. Carlow for Sam have really struggled thus far, gaining a mere 77 points in an almost double score spanking last week, and will be hoping for a radical change in fortunes soon. Donovan McNabb (QB-WAS) can't be blamed after a 21.52 point return in Week 2, and the Vikings 'D' have also starred. It will be important for the Carlow boys that the likes of Steve Smith (WR-NYG), Jeremy Maclin (WR-PHI) , Rashard Mendehall (RB-PIT) and DeAngelo Williams (RB-CAR) start to produce, but if they do then the Carlow squad might well re-emerge as a force in the North-East division. puppet master could easily be 2-0 at this point, losing a squeaker by less than 3 points in Week 2. However, it is hard to feel real sympathy when the target to win that game was just 88 points. One man could probably carry the can for the loss however, and that is Brett Favre, as old greybeard accounted for minus 3.50 points all on his own. It didn't help that puppet master fielded with an empty WR slot either, and that has been corrected for this week. The puppet master manager should probably look at his individual defensive players though, as two of them are NA for this week.It is a shame to waste a great week, but that is what happened the puppets in week 2, as Jahvid Bests 40+ points went unrewarded. You can't rely on a Detroit Running Back, a rookie to boot, to do that every week, so Favre, Chris Johnson (RB-TEN), Cedric Benson (RB-CIN) and co will have to raise their games to give the puppets a chance. Eddie Royal of Denver and Mike Wallace of Pittsburgh carry the WR threat, so perhaps a trip to the waiver wire or trade city is in order.

The third game on the slate is the South-West clash of the 1-1 L'Esprit de Biff and the 0-2 ConVICKS. With almost 60 points between them in points scored, and a direct formline through the Faithful Turfmen 'B' team, you would have to make L'Esprit de Biff favourite. Drew Brees (QB-NO) is a fantasy stud, as are the likes of Larry Fitzgerald and Jason Witten normally. However, Larry Fitzgerald at WR is up against Nnamdi Asomugha this week, and also has to contend with Derek Anderson's accuracy issues. However Fitz is still Fitz, and he's a hard man to miss, so he'll catch his fair share. It might not be Andre Johnson territory is all. Jason Witten had other issues, namely being unable to remember his name after a hit, but he should be okay for the battle of Texas against the Houston Texans. the Texans pass defense has been poor, so it could be an opportunity for Tony Romo and the Cowboys to get their offense moving, which should help TE Witten. The ConVICKs have struggled, and really need to do something about QB. Matt Stafford (DET) is down and out for a while with a seperated shoulder, so he needs to be replaced. Reggie Wayne (WR-IND) will gather points as long as he stays healthy, while Steve Smith (CAR-WR) and Antono Gates (TE-SD) are also reliable. Running back is a problem though, as Thomas Jones (KC) is fighting for carries with Jamaal Charles and Ryan Matthews (SD) has let the twitterverse know that he has a high ankle sprain. That normally spells a week at least on the bench, as that's a troublesome injury for Running Backs, and it stops them cutting back. All that considered, it's hard to see a ConVICKS bounce back here, and moves may be necessary, at least at QB.

The pivot game sees the 0-2 rookies of the Rehab is 4 Quitters squad face up against doughty veteran, 1-1 mayo warriors. The Quitters squad hada good week from Michael Vick in Week 2, but unfortunately left an even better week in Matt Schaub (QB-KC) sitting sadly on the bench. Schaub is reinstated for Week 3, against Dallas, and the Quitters will be hoping this roll of the dice pays off. Andre Johnson (WR-HOU) had a monster week last week, and Quitters will be hoping the Schaub-Johnson double act will fire again. The Other Johnson, Calvin, WR-DET is another serious threat at WR, and his trip to the Vikings might be a big opportunity for him. Again, as is common in this conference, RB seems to be an issue for the Quitters. Last week was Marion Barber (DAL) and Fred Taylor (NE - Running by committee). This week Mike Tolbert (SD) gets his chance as a replacement for the likely injured Ryan Matthews, and might be a good play. Either way, it's a safe bet that the Johnsons, Schaub and even TJ houshmanzadeh will have to be big scorers to secure a win here. The mayo warriors bounced back from an opening week loss to top the Old Jack City team 116.42 - 112.19, and will be delighted to see a 1-2-3 punch of Jay Cutler (QB-CHI), Roddy White (WR-ATL) and DeSean Jackson (WR-PHI) all pile up the points, along with Darren McFadden (RB-OAK). Cutler is going to throw all year, for good or bad, and should score v Green Bay. White will have a tougher secondary this week in the Saints, but not a frightening one, while Jackson should be okay against Jacksonville. McFadden will be hopeful against a Cardinals D that has yet to stop anybody, but if they do the likes of Ahmad Bradshaw (RB-NYG) and Chad Ochocinco (WR-CIN) will have to show something.

On now to the North-East 3rd versus 4th clash as the 1-1 pair of Old Jack City and North Antrim Nuggets get up close and personal. Old Jack City was on the receiving end of that result for the mayo warriors in round 2, and will be hoping to get back to winning ways. Tom Brady (QB-NE) was uncharacteristically quiet last week, but against a very good Jets defense. You can almost chalk down 15 points + this week against the hapless Bills, especially in Roxboro. Miles Austin (WR-DAL) has been a beast thus far, and should be again against Houston, while Wes Welker (WR-NE) should be the target for a lot of Brady's throws in New England. Yet again, running backs are an issue. Shonn Green (NYJ) and Jerome Harrison (CLE) have fallen way below expectations so far, but they both have undoubted potential. If they fail to spark, then there will be serious pressure on the likes of Derek Mason (WR-BAL) and Zach Miller (TE-OAK) to show much more than they have done to date. The Nuggets, on the other hand, rebounded in week 2, with a strong showing of 136 points to see off the Red Hand Helmets. This win came despite a horror show from KC quarterback Matt Cassel, as Mike Sims-Walker (WR-JAC) and Frank Gore (RB-SF) especially, carried a huge load. Brandon Marshall (WR-MIA) and Mercedes Lewis (TE-JAC) are two potential match winners as well, but Jonathan Stewart (RB-CAR) and Chester Taylor (RB-CHI) are suffering in the shadow of DeAngelo Williams and Matt Forte respectively. This matchup features two of the better team defenses as well, as the Nuggets Steelers D faces off against the Old Jack City's Bengals, however it might be the triple threat of Brady, Welker and Austin that swing it the way of the Old JAck City squad.

Next to last on the schedule is the suprise leading 2-0 Shrek's Ogres putting their unbeaten start on the line against the 0-2 Red Hand Helmets in a North-East division matchup. The Ogres squeaked past the puppet master in week 2, registering only 88.03 points, while the Helmets scored 104 points in defeat. The Ogres will suffer with Reggie Bush's broken leg, but Aaron Rogers (QB-GB), Donald Driver (WR-GB) and Dallas Clark (TE-IND) will be asked to carry the load. Nate Washington(WR-TEN), Brandon Jacob (RB-NYG) and Devin Aromashodu (WR-CHI) have not given much yet (apart from JAcobs throwing his helmet into the crowd) and will need to give some support or Bush's injury may prove catastrophic. On the Helmets sidelines, the manager will be looking at the likes of Adrian Peterson (RB-MIN) and Pierre Thomas (RB-NO) to continue their momentum gained last week, and will look to the likes of Vernon Davis (TE-SF) and Eli Manning (QB-NYG) to provide solid support. Wide Receiver is a bit of a weakness on this team, with Steelers Wideout Hines Ward being the most dangerous, and he is a bit long in the tooth at this stage. Steve Breaston (ARI) is having a good start to the season, but also might suffer from the Derek Anderson factor, while Braylon Edwards (NYJ) seems to be on a one man mission to get kicked out of the NFL.

Finally (phew, I need a voice recognition software pack) we come to the story of the year so far as rookie Coolera Bears put their 2-0 record and 142 point average on the line against the 1-1 Crossmaglen Hitmen. The Bears have been a breath of fresh air so far as Philip River (QB-SD), Randy Moss (WR-NE), Marr Forte (RB-CHI) and Austin Collie (WR-IND) have lead a supporting cast including Steven JAckson (RB-STL) to a very quick start. There may be a couple of flies gathering around the ointment though. Can Rivers really keep throwing all over the field when Vincent Jackson is sitting out, especially now that Ryan Matthews is out of action? Will Randy Moss start sulking in New England? And can Matt Forte really keep up this pace? Even if the answer to some of those questions are negative, you would suspect that the Bears have enough to keep competitive every week, in a fine debut season. This week they'll see a Fantasy old timer in the Hitmen. Tony Romo (QB-DAL) and Maurice Jones Drew (RB-JAC) are the big names here, and both have been below par to average so far. Romo is up against the Texans on Sunday, and Drew takes on a Philly D that got slaughtered by Jahvid BEst last week. Could this be the week where you see 20 points + from each of them? If so, then LeSean McCoy (RB-PHI), Kevin Walter (WR-HOU) and co may just earn enough to eek out a win, but I think my money will still be on the upstart Sligo team.

I'm not necessarily objecting to it, but I'd like to hear the reasoning from both sides.

Some of you would be shocked at the trades I have had turned down.  In hindsight this 14 man league leaves things too deep with the smarter guys who actually were able to draft sitting way ahead of the rest.  With few core players us mid tier men and bottom of the league guys have hardly anything, to trade with.

This is a decent trade for both Puppetmaster and I - lets see what happens.

Lads I need some advice in another league, I don't know what to do and you fine gentlemen are my last resort. Starting roster is 2 rbs, 2 wr and one flex position. I have been offered Ryan Matthews and Mike Sims Walker for DeSean Jackson. My receivers are DJax, Mike Wallace, Braylon Edwards, Mike Williams, and Vincent Jackson. My rbs are Shonn Greene, Jonathan Stewart, Knowshawn Moreno and James Harrison. My RBs are not doing well because Greene is losing carries to LT, Harrison losing carries to Hillis, and Stewart is just not doing it. Moreno is doing well. Jackson is probably my top performer but Matthews could be a beast when fit, and Vincent Jackson could be good when he comes back.
Views will be greatly appreciated.

@The Claw: All indicators are that VJax will sit out the season at the mo, so I'd drop him to be honest... at the very least dont be doing the trade based on him coming back...

@AZ/ Iceman... I wasnt raising an objection to the trade I just think its mad to trade away AJ80 in a PPR, especially when you're also giving away potentially the best player in fantasy with him! Vick has never had these weapons before, he's never had such good QB coaches as Reid and Worinwheg (sp?), and his performance is showing it. I would wait until after this weekend to do the trade, as Vick has his first test against a pretty good D, and we'll know if he's for real 100% of the time by Monday morning.

As it stands you think you're doing OK from the trade, so does your trade partner, and when that is the case, who are we to question it?

I think the trade is ok. I know Vick is making a bit of a splash at the moment but I don't expect it to last. Also Barber is doing nothing. On the other side of the trade, I expect Mike Wallace to improve Once Ben Rothliesberger comes back in week 5.

I'd have taken Miles Austin (Even though Moss was still available, I thought Austin had the potential to be the No2 receiver after AJ80), that would have left me a decent RB in round 2 (My plan was to take Williams, Grant, Benson, Charles, or Foster if they were there).

Everything went downhill from there. Suck, suck, suck. Now... If Sidney Rice makes it back by week 8 or so, and I'm around .500 by then...

Brady and welker didn't get those 29 points, did they McGrens. It was a strange game with defense and special teams winning it for the Patriots.

Moss to Vikes for a 3rd round pick. I expect Rice to go on IR as a result. Like I said... w**k.

That's an interesting one with Randy Moss. Will he be on Revis Island this weekend? Minnesota really need him but I wonder is his addition going to be enough to open up the passing game for them. Favre should be better after the bye week. From a fantasy point of view Moss should be receiving more targets than in recent weeks in New England.

About time Marshawn Lynch was traded too!

Points only matter if you're on the same record as another,or so i believe.
As for the playoffs
Is it 2/3/4 from each division  of 7?
if it were 2
You would definetely need to be around 10-4 or 11-3
3/4 teams
8-6 might get you in the last spot.

Have Tony Moeaki up for trade if anyone needs a TE in the Peyton Conference? He served his purpose for me during the bye week for Hernandez and although they are ranked close I am sticking with Hernandez.
TE Tony Moeaki continues to lead the team in receiving, as he has 16 catches for 173 yards and two touchdowns. Moeaki has become QB Matt Cassel's go-to receiver in just four games. No one else on the team has more than nine receptions.


Let me know? There are a few candidates out there weak on the TE side. Puppet Master you could do with strengthening your TE bench while Finley is out....

I know but I do well out of the current system. I lost this week because of players just not performing and others having a bye week. My main point would be that it is too hard for QBs and running backs to generate points in this league in comparison to say wide receivers or even kickers.

It doesn't seem right to have your kicker generating more points than your quarterback every week.

My kicker doesn't outscore my QB, unless the QB has a mare.

The scoring can be found on the league home.

Sorry about being quiet lads, the last few weeks have been busy. I was away last weekend and forgot to set my lineup (cardinal sin) so that's why I lost to the Kildare loopers.

We used to have it the other way round, but the problem is there are less good QB's to be had, so if someone drafted say, Brees or Manning it gave them a massive example. Some quiet young fella won the league a few years back purely on the strength of having Brady the year he and Moss exploded.

Seanie, are you nervous? I think I'm 6+ points behind you, but I have the Jacksonville kicker and a Titans' lineman. A few sacks and Jags having to kick field goals all night would be ideal :D

Pity it wasn't this week!

I'm not nervous - I'm completely resigned to my first defeat. The Washington DL man getting 6 points last night sealed it. The Jax kicker alone will probably get you over the line, he has some boot on him. You deserve it anyway looking at your bench but my last minute decision to bench Collie for Marques Colston (surely he has to score a TD some week soon?) will likely be the difference.

I've a few tricky weeks with byes coming up so will need to halt the slide.

A lot of players are just not performing. A lot of players struggling with injury.
A lot of guys involved in the Board league seemed to have lost interest or are busy as there were a serious amount of teams with active players on a 'bye' week.

I'm happy to take advantage of it all. The game isn't over yet but I should pick up the 'W' tonight and go 3-3.

Still open to some trades if anyone is interested.

Wembley is a bit of a shit hole. Somebody in Germany asked Roger Goodell, the boss of the NFL, why not hold a game in Germany as NFL Europe was much more popular in Germany and Goodell basically told him to shut up and forget about it.

I think they are genuinely hoping that it would be possible to have an NFL franchise in London and are trying to build up demand and a fan base for the NFL product in London.

Not going this year either, the horrible matchup is the main reason. Kinda knew when these teams were announed that neither would be good enough to tempt me to go. Similar to last years game i think everyone knew that the Patriots were gonna beat the buccs out the gate in a pretty rubbish game but at least you would get to see Brady, Moss, Welker and a few other big names play. This year it just seems to be Frank Gore worth watching.

I kind of ground that one out. It looked for a good while like you had me in bother but the Bears Defense (which is practically their offense) came up big for me.

Nightmare for me next weekend with byes and injuries.

Nope. The two winners of the divisions will be seeded 1 & 2. Seeds 3 & 4 will be the 'wildcards' with the best record, so you could have 3 & 4 from the same division. Then 1 v 4, 2 v 3.

i think next year you should just look at a straight league then Az like it was before  because you could be the winner of one of the divisions and yet be maybe 5 or 6 best overall (probably not expaining myself too well here ) plus with the divisions epecially this year its a balls for our divison as we have to play the top 2 teams in the league twice . i think i may be taking this fantasy football a little too serious  :D

Lads I've sent about 5 trade proposals in the Montana conference that have been outstanding for about 2 weeks. Would ye mind looking to see if you are one of them because people don't seem to be responding. Looking for a decent qb to replace Favre. Offers welcome. Whoever offered me big Ben, I'll probably come back to you this week. I'm Royal Badgers

It's actually a week later than default. It's a device to stop dead teams trading away good players. With 5 weeks left everyone should still be interested.

Some very valid points. I think it makes a lot of sense. Trouble is in the interest of getting more people involved we open the doors then people lose interest or have a shit team because they were not sure what they were at during the draft.

I definitely think a revised approach next year would be worth considering.
The only chance I have of getting anywhere is divine Intervention and the top teams lose some of their star players to injury. Nobody is really trading and there isn't much left to pick up on Waivers at this point.

In fairness, you're in a similar boat to myself - it's not that nobody is trading, it's that nobody is trading running backs that are likely starters. These players have huge value, to the point that last week I ended up trading a second receiver in a pass-happy team for a third down back - and while that might sound stupid, it's because I know that I'll be able to pick up a receiver on the waiver wire each week, while I won't get any RB's that are worth anything.

I'm not trying to pick a row and I appreciate what you're saying, but you were on this thread looking to offload a QB who was a 50/50 long term starter in a league with 32 starting QB's every week, and to get a starting RB in exchange? My best RB is Joseph Addai, who only hits 100 yards every 10 games but does start when fit. There's no way I'd give him up for Tom Brady or Payton Manning, never mind somebody like Vick. It's not fair to say that no-one is trading.

Post by: Capt Pat on October 28, 2010, 06:01:31 PM
I might not be one to talk about bad trades after trading Tom Brady and Brand on Jacobs for Jerome Harrison and Joe Flacco, but I think it was a bad idea to trade a good receiver for an average running back. This league is all about receivers with the points for receptions and only 1 point for 20 yards.

A running back could have a big week with 160 yards and only gets 8 points. if he had a couple of fumbles it would be back down to 4 points. All a receiver needs to do to match that is 2 receptions and 40 yards. THe only running backs that are worht a lot are the ones who score touchdowns and catch the ball.
Title: Re: NFL Fantasy Football - GAABoard Superbowl VI
Post by: Lone Shark on October 28, 2010, 06:14:19 PM
That's all very well, but the point is that receivers that are projected to score 7 points or so are easy enough to find. Of course I expect Jabar Gaffney to outscore Justin Forsett, but the point is that I can't play Gaffney as a RB, while I still have two competent receivers on the bench to cover me for bye weeks and the like, and that's with three receivers starting since I have Mike Thomas as the flex player. It's just supply and demand and if you go through the league, there are probably 10-20 decent receivers being dropped every week by teams, while there are very few (if any) good RB's left unused.

Your logic would stand up if it was an option to just start any player in any position, but it isn't so that's why RB's attract a premium.

Miles Austin is up for grabs if anyone in Payton is interested.

As far as Waivers go... I got Marshawn Lynch and Ryan Torain off the waiver wire in the last three weeks- both are now starting RB's!

in fairness Lone shark I made a trade at 0-3 and it was the turning point for me. When I traded vick he was the starting QB.
Some of it was good luck on my part in that Vick and Johnson both got injured the week after the trade and I am 3-1 since that trade with a good chance to win again this weekend. Some of that luck seems to be coming full circle and Puppet Master is doing ok again - I honestly felt bad about the injuries.....

With 14 in the league, teams are so spread thin and injuries are definite that people dont want to trade. I was also caught out on the Draft being blocked here in work so had to rely on auto picks so my options are very limited. I've done OK but don't have the solid teams some of the other lads have (and as was mentioned we have to play them twice in our divisions).

I wouldn't argue with the trade you made at all - I thought it was a fair swap at the time and nobody can predict injuries. I was just putting together some of the trade requests you were suggesting on here with the idea that there's no trading to be done and there was a degree of causality there.

Lets break down the trade proposal put forward by Mcgrens

Miles Austin.
Top WR ranked well at the beginning of the season. Has since drifted to about #60 with hot and cold performances and poor service from Romo who is now out.....

With the depth he has at WR, Mcgrens is probably hoping for a RB. He needs a starter, of which there are few unless you pick up someone who is a kick return guy. He has Greene on the bench but LT seems to be getting more of the carries. Nobody is in a position to trade because of the 14 players in the league. Teams are so thin that nobody has starters on the bench worth talking about or of major value.......I wouldn't swop any of my starters for greene or austin right now.....

Clos-ish. I'd actually think about trading Welker instead, because I have decent depth and I dont actually think Austin will struggle too much with the loos of Romo- He's a Yards After The Catch on crossing routes kind of receiver at his best anyway. I would like an RB, but Ive got two promising starters (particularly this week) in Lynch and Torain, both of whom will be starters for their respective teams for the remainder of the year if they stay fit. Im set at QB, set at TE, happy at WR (If Sidney Rice ends up being anywhere near what he was last year I'll have mega receiver depth), I could just use a bit of depth at RB.

At the mo the only reason Im keeping Greene (Stupid f**king auto draft) is in case LT breaks down (he's done that two straight years now), or for when the Jets start to pull back on LT's work to keep him fresh for the playoffs. Michael Bush is a very good backup to one of the NFL's most brittle players.

Only levelling the series even if I do hold on - hopefully we'll get a chance for a decider in the playoffs!  ;)

As for Carpenter, that's what you call dumb luck. I had David Akers all year and while he had one disaster week, generally he was going well - but he was on a bye, so in came Carpenter. Happy day.  :D

You can pick up a starting QB any time. Holding on to Orton is of no real value to you and in fairness not too many would trade for him.
Your priority at this point in the season should be strengthening your core team - getting some boys off your bench and bundling them with some decent players and trading. Holding boys on the bench doesnt make a pile of sense unless you have a lot of players on bye weeks coming up.

Payton Conference - Would be interested in doing a deal with someone before the deadine. My main concern is WR, think I could do with an upgrade there and injuries/uncertainty hampering me a bit. I've 4 starting RB's on my roster - Coolera Bears - for anyone who is short there.

Yeah, I really had to work hard at it this week with my lineup (WR hell going on for me) and got a bit of luck with Steve Smith going down after I picked up Manningham. Thankfully I left out the right RB (Forte), a decision I agonised over for a long time.

Big one next week with Ballyhaise Bills, someone will drop to 9-2. Both teams currently projected to score approx 135 so will probably be verytight.

Yeah, those Vikings guys fecked you up altogether. When I saw I scored 30 odd points last night I assumed Manningham had got the bulk of them but it was Tuck who went ape. You've been unlucky that I posted big totals the weeks against you.

Anyone know how the standings are decided if teams have an equal record? Does it go on Division record first then points scored or points scored first then division record?
Reason i ask is that in the Montana conference 4-5 teams are trying for 3rd & 4th place and could all finish on the same record. I dont see anything in the league rules section...

Gutted :) Well done to the 4 playoff bound teams in the Montana Conference. I ended up just on the outside, looking in, but a 9-5 record is my best for some couple of seasons, so happy enough with that. Missing out on points difference is a bummer, but it shows how tight the league is.

So, in Montana Conference, well done to our top seed New York Jets IV, who finished with a 12-2 record, a full 2 games better than their nearest rival, to win the East and West Division, and claim #1 rankings in the playoffs.

#2 seed will be the Shower of Tramps who clinched victory this week in the North and South division by beating hegan's helmets to claim a 10-4 record and a berth in the conference playoffs.

#3 seed is from the East and West Conference, and the runner up there, Smackdown Clowns. 9-5 was good enough to take the #3 seed, with an impressive 1836 points. The #4 seed, by a mere 50 points over 14 games was the North and South runner up, Craigyhill Terrors, also on a 9-5 mark who pipped the in no way bitter Faithful Turfmen.

So, the playoffs for the Montana Conference next week will feature
1) New York Jets IV v 4) Craigyhill Terrors
2) Shower of Tramps v 3) Smackdown Clowns

In the Payton Conference, pride of place goes to the unbelievable rookie performance of the 13-1 Coolera Bears. #1 seeds and 1893 points is a great debut season for the Bears, and they will be hoping to carry on through the playoffs now.

The number 2 seed goes to the Crossmaglen Hitmen, division winners of North and East, with a record of 9-5, illustrating the disparity between performances in these two divisions. That record and points status would be good for 4th in the South and West Division.

#3 and #4 seeds, as wildcards with the best records, both go to South and West teams, with the number 3 seed going to the 12-2 Ballyhaise Bills, and the #4 seed going to the L'Esprit de Biff squad, who make a welcome return to the playoffs by squeaking in on points difference on a 9-5 mark, ahead of the Red Hand Helmets, albeit by a margin of 100 points.

So, in the Payton Conference

#1) Coolera Bears v #4) L'Esprit de Biff
#2) Crossmaglen Hitmen v #3) Ballyhaise Bills.


Semi Finals to be played this week, so remember your teams for Thursday night!!

There are also consolation matches for the teams ranked 5-8 in each conference, so check them out and submit your teams if you are in.

Hope everyone enjoyed the league this year, and as always, suggestions welcome for next season.

Enjoy the Playoffs, and may the best two teams win to face off for the title of GAA Board Superbowl VI Champion in our playoff predictions competition.

What a disaster that was, after a 5-1 start, I finished 3-5. I had a bit of bad luck with Antonio Gates who was the best fantasy player in the league at one point getting injured and the Tennessee Titans turning a corner and going backwards, I had 4 players, Britt, Bironas, Griffin and the Tennessee defense who were also league leaders in their positions, whose production all fell off dramatically. I thought I would cruise into the playoffs at one stage. TO went quiet after a strong start to the season as did Boldin. De Angelo Williams my top draft pick went on IR after doing nothing and I traded away Tom Brady and Brandon Jacobs for a bag of doughnuts and Joe Flacco. 

Well done to those that got through, but I will be back next year.

Not trying to make you feel any worse but if you hadnt traded Brady away you easily would have made the playoffs and i think it would be yours to lose now...

Post by: magpie seanie on December 28, 2010, 06:27:57 PM
Firstly congrats to Ballyhaise. You won the most important of our 3 tussles this season. I am completely gutted. Was convinced all along I'd beat you in this one and even with the Bears D going awol and San Diego imploding I couldn't see Abraham outscoring Colston in the last game but hey - I guess that's fantasy NFL. Good luck in the predictions comp that I think you have to win to take the overall title.

Thanks a million to AZ for organising it. I genuinely hadn't much of an idea at the start but I got hooked. I'm sick I didn't win it out but I'm also raging its over either way. Massive craic. Doubt I'll be as tuned in next year but roll on August and we'll get it going again.

After a one year stopover to bitter rivals Mayo the Montana Conference Crown has returned to Roscommon ;D Though it must be said that the two counties have shared the last 4 Montana titles.

Review of my Fantasy Season:

Best Draft Pick: A Rodgers (1)
Honourable Mentions: J Witten (4), H Nicks (5)

Worst Draft Pick: P Thomas (2)
Honourable Mentions: None close to Thomas

Best Pickup: D Bess
Honourable Mentions: M Tolbert, B Green-Ellis, J Tuck

Worst Pickup: Deji Karim (A one week stop gap at RB for his return yards, got me 1 point)
No Honourable Mentions

Worst Drop: S Holmes

Well lads, it's wrap up time on another Fantasy season, and congrats to everyone who took part and stuck with it, but special congratulations to our two conference Champions, the Smack Down Clowns and the Ballyhaise Bills. Also a special mention for our undisputed Rookie of the year, the Coolera Bears. They just came up short at the end, but certainly put paid to the notion that you have to be a multi year veteran to be competitive.

Now it's time to crown our GAABoard Superbowl champion. As you know, we do a predictions competition for all the playoff games up to and including the Superbowl itself. In prior years it's been based on the results of the game, but I think it's fair to say that the competition peetered out as one or the other surged ahead, so this year the head to head between our two conference Champions will be based on more Fantasy type scores.

So, Smackdown Clowns and Ballyhaise Bills, please PM me your picks in the following areas. PM do not post :) You need to make a pick in each category for ech game, 16 picks in total. Each pick you get right will get you 10 points. A wrong pick will be 5 points. The categories are the same for all 4 games.

1. Winning Team (Team that wins through to the next round, OT counts)
2. Team with most Rushing Yards
3. Team with most Passing Yards
4. Team winning the Turnover Battle.

All Stats will be taken from the official NFL.COM game centre of each game. Any ties in a category for 2,3 or 4 will be declared no bet.

As an example I have filled out my picks for the first game of the weekend, New Orleans @ Seattle in the NFC. This takes place on Saturday.

Please remember you should pick for all 4 games, and if you do not enter, you get 0 points.

Wild Card Weekend (4 Games).

New Orleans @ Seattle (SAT)
New York Jets @ Indianapolis (SAT)
Baltimore @ Kansas City (SUN)
Green Bay @ Philly (SUN)


Sample picks for game 1.

Team to win - New Orleans
Most Rushing Yards - New Orleans
Most Passing Yards - Seattle
Turnover Battle - New Orleans


Anyone not involved in the final can feel free to post their picks, I'll keep a running count out of interest.

Hope ye enjoyed the season!

Just one question, picking the "Team winning the Turnover Battle" is dead even an option or do we have to pick a team?

Wild Card Weekend (4 Games).

New Orleans @ Seattle (SAT)

Team to win - New Orleans
Most Rushing Yards - New Orleans
Most Passing Yards - New Orleans
Turnover Battle - New Orleans

Saints to run roughshod over Seattle. Brees sits out the 4th Quarter.

New York Jets @ Indianapolis (SAT)

Team to win - Indy
Most Rushing Yards - New York
Most Passing Yards - Indy
Turnover Battle - Indy

I see this one being close. I'm not comfortable with the Jets to have most rush yards pick, as Indy's run D has been extremely strong of late (check out what they did against good run offenses in the last few weeks). Regardless, never bet against Peyton Manning at home, in a big game, or at night. Last time the Colts were the three seed they won the Superbowl.

Baltimore @ Kansas City (SUN)

Team to win - Kansas City (at the very least to beat the spread)
Most Rushing Yards - Kansas City
Most Passing Yards - Baltimore
Turnover Battle - Kansas City

I just have a feeling. Ive thought Baltimore were way overrated all year long. I dont think Baltimore match up well with the KC offense, and I think Baltimore have no explosiveness in their O.

Green Bay @ Philly (SUN)


Team to win - Philly
Most Rushing Yards - Philly
Most Passing Yards - Green Bay
Turnover Battle - Philly

This one is a coin flip. Everything rides on the fitness of the two QB's. Above I've assumed they will be OK. If Vick isn't OK to go at 100% I'm changing to Green Bay- I LOVE the Green Bay WR's against the Philly D backs.

Worst Draft Pick: R. Moss (1)
Honourable Mentions: Nothing near as bad as that

Worst Pickup: V. Jackson. Got injured straight away, had him on the bench when he scored 3 TD's and then flopped a week later when I needed it most. 
Honourable Mentions: None

Worst Drop: D. Bryant. Worked out ok for me in the end when I got Manningham and injuries to Nicks/Smith but I missed out on his most productive period of the season.

Hi Declan,

Unfortunately Ballyhaise Broncos gave you a walkover last weekend, despite a PM to him and a post here as well. I hope he's alright :D Anyway, that gave you a free run at extending your lead, and just gives the Broncos 3 games to pull you back.

We should have the draft outside of work hours so people aren't inconvenienced like that. It is not fair to have to break from work for it. People who will only turn up for the draft if it is in work hours are less important than those who will give up their free time for it.

Correct on both counts. I can't believe they gave up DRC AND a second round pick for him. I'm not too pushed about losing DRC because he cannot tackle, but he's a good cover corner. Lot of pressure on Peterson now.

If you don't get the email, or you weren't in it last year, they league id is 305938

Any chance we could reduce the number of teams per conference?
If necessary add a third and go no less than 10 teams per ocnference and no more than 12.
Last year a few of the teams stopped playing (or lost interest) so maybe if more than 4 games were missed they should be dropped this year..?
I dunno - just a few suggestions.

I've no issue with that, but we'll have to think of a better way to determine our overall winner in any case. I don't like the predictions thing, it's an anti climax.

How about trying to seperate the teams into 3 hierarchical divisions (or conferences, based on last year?) Top 10 scores from last year go into the Montana conference, and fight for the Division 1 or A championship. 2nd 10 go into the Payton conference to play for the B Championship, and the last 10 go into the C championship (along with newbies?)

Thoughts? Would we get 30?
Title: Re: NFL Fantasy Football - GAABoard Superbowl VI
Post by: The Iceman on August 01, 2011, 03:29:01 PM
I like that idea a lot!
we might be able to get 30 - we have 23 days now so see who is genuinely interested.

Even 20 would be fine.

Top 4 move up bottom 4 move down next year...

With only ten teams in a conference it would leave more players available instead of fighting for scraps..... Could make for an interesting year and a tight competition.

AZ, I received the following message when I tried to sign up:

There was a problem
There is not room in this league if all teams from last year return. To join, get the commissioner to increase the maximum number of teams, or remove teams that will not be returning. (Error #638)


If you do intend to expand, I'd like to join.  Would be quite happy to be the Junior C team of this league.  If there's no room, no bother.

Try again there. We'll see how many we get, and then decide whether to split into A, B and C. If we get 24, I like 3x 8 less than 24, I think we go 2 division.

So. ... is it essentially going to be two tiered with two totally separate leagues?
Title: Re: NFL Fantasy Football - GAABoard Superbowl VI
Post by: AZOffaly on August 01, 2011, 07:20:05 PM
Yep OffalyLad, or maybe even 3. Last year we had 28 teams I think. The problem we've had is getting an overall winner. Yahoo doesn't allow for seperate leagues to have 'champions' that play against each other. Therefore we were using a predictions competitions where the two winners predicted the playoff games to give us an overall champion.

I'm kind of liking the idea of splitting into two or three leagues of 8-10 each, and each league is a seperate competition, with it's own playoffs etc, just like now. Except we tier them according to previous (2010) points totals so the top 8-10 are in Division 1, 11-20 in Division 2 and 20+ newbies are in division 3.

Anyone have a major issue with that? If not, I'll put up a proposed divisional split.

One other thing, I don't think Yahoo allows non playing commisioners, so I'll have to have a team in each league, no matter how good or bad I do. Is everyone okay with that?

Post by: Lone Shark on August 01, 2011, 07:30:17 PM

18 in so far lads. Keep registering, and when we get enough for 3 leagues, I'll make the C Division.  If everyone just registers in one of the two divisions that are there now, that should allow for up to 32.

We'll then split out by the divisions after that, so you'll just have to rejoin the league I send you individually. Sounds complicated, but it isn't.

Lads I have a couple of questions as I'm a newcomer to this game.  I'm guessing its like fantasy soccer where you pick a team of players and they get you points based on how they do.  Most points win and you can make changes at various times during the year.  Any other basic things I'm missing? 

Also the draft, I take it this is where you get your players but how does it work? Is it automatically picked or do we all pick out of a pot at the same time?  If you miss the draft do you get left with the players nobody else wanted?  Cheers for the advice in advance!

Post by: AZOffaly on August 02, 2011, 11:01:58 PM
Same principle doireabu, except each week you are playing against 1 other manager. Your points for that week versus his determines the winners.

The draft is how you get your initial roster, from which you pick a weekly team.

Just before the draft, you are assigned a draft position. (e.g 3)  That means you pick 3rd the first time, and 3rd last the second time, 3rd again the 3rd time and so on.

The trick with the draft, unlike the soccer, is that everyone is basically picking from the same pool. So it's not based on money or a budget. You can pick anybody still available, as long as you fill the required positions. As soon as a player is picked though, he is gone for everyone else.

So in my example, you'll have the third pick in round one, and will be able to select anybody except the two players selected by the lads picking in positions 1 and 2.

Obviously as the rounds go on, less and less players are available.  You should try a few mock drafts on Yahoo. (It's called a 'snake' draft).

Here ya go           http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/sports/fantasysports/football/rules/

Basics
1) look at league scoring rules per position
2) how many starters needed per postion
3) look for backups at rb, qb & wr positions
4) score more points than opponent and win
5) wait for another week before rating players (free agency still going on)
6) the draft is live where you pick from the player pool (sometimes yahoo misses players ie DL,LB)
7) pick players based on point projection
8) if you can't make the draft, yahoo will pick auto for you from your pre-ranked players
9) trash talk is encouraged
10) set lineups every week, look at injury reports and have fun

If we are putting things up for a vote. Here are 2

1 point for a running back gaining 10 yards instead of 20 which is too difficult.

The size of the divisions. Should there be 8 10 12 or 14 teams in each division?

I think the 1 point for 20 yards rushing and receiving is good, it keeps better parity between Rbs, Wrs & Qbs. If you change it for the Rbs the you have to look at changing the 1 point for 50 yards passing also which would cause a lot of hassel.
Done a quick check and A Foster the top RB from last year would have almost double P Mannings score last year if it was 1 point for 10 yards and manning had 4700 yards + 33TDs a good year by all accounts...

Dont mind how many teams in each division. I suppose the number of entrants is going to determine it in the end...

For what its worth I don't agree with 1 point for 10 yds rushing for RB's. 60 yds rushing would be the same as a TD and that can't be right.

Size of division doesn't bother me too much. I think 10 or 12 is ideal but I'm cool like the Fonz on that one.

I think I agree with Declan on the scoring. It also is reflective of the fact that it's a passing league now (the NFL), so our league is in line with that. I suppose it's a judgment call as to where you draft your players.

As for structure, this is what I'm thinking, as per earlier emails.

3 seperate leagues, with promotion and relegation for next year. We currently have 24 i think, and are pushing for 30 which would give us 3 leagues of 10.

The Montana League (as I'll rename it) is the 'A' competition, and would be made up of the top 10 point scoring teams from last year.

The Payton League will be the 'B' competition and has teams ranked 11-20.

The new Rice League will be the 'C' competition and is for newbies and teams ranked 20+


Each League will have 2 divisions of 5 teams each (or whatever). The winners of each division will make the playoffs, as will 2 wildcards.

Weeks 15 and 16 will be each leagues semi final and final.


That will end the Fantasy Season then, and we'll have 3 champions (and 3 trophies). We might do a predictions thing for everyone for the playoffs, but I don't like the way that's been deciding our 'Champion' up to this year.

How many are we talking about going up and down each year? I'd be in favour of a lot of movement, give plenty of people a crack at the Superbowl over a few years.

Actually, how about the Div 3 winner going straight up to Div 1? That way the ultimate trophy is no more than two seasons away for any newbie?

Bottom team in Div 1 goes to 3, 2nd and 3rd from bottom to 2. Top 2 in 2 go up, bottom 2 go down, top 1 in 3 goes to 1 and 2nd and 3rd go to 2?

Not crazy about 1 point for 10 yards either in fairness. I think the 1 point for 20 yards hurt people last year who's RB didn't get the goal line carries. 1 point for 10 gives RB's too many points.

Change your draft picks this year if you don't think your RB's carry the most points then draft a QB and WR early! :)

I'd be thinking that 4 up, 4 down would be fair enough. 40% turnover is huge.

so if you make your playoffs, you get promoted. Finish in the bottom 4 on points, and you're gone.

I don't like the Div 3 to Div 1 and vice versa though. I think a straightforward 3-2-1 is better.

I agree with Iceman. You reward a position for doing their job with performance. A very good RB on average rushes for 85 yards per game. That is a lot of yards for getting a beating running between the offensive tackles (position).

The point system should reward top performances and punish poor performances. The one league I play in for $$ you can end up with negative points for the week.

The point system seemed very fair from last year, maybe a little too generous at times. I will review the whole point system later tonite and suggest tweaks.

Not every RB is like Arian Foster. 60 yards rushing is easily a more worthy effort than a 1yard rushing effort or a one yard reception for a TD. That is just the way it should be. If the rules remain 1 point for 20 yards rushing I will just draft the much more effective wide receivers first and leave the RBs until the later roundsn

These would be the only changes I see that are needed:

All (passing, rushing, receiving, defensive* or return) TD's should have the same value of 6.

*A defensive player will get bonus pts for recover/Int so it should be just 6.

PAT miss should have a higher minus value (like -9 or -10) since it is pretty much a given point play.

30-39 yd FG miss -3

Keep the DLs but have an option to put a LB in their spot if possible on yahoo.


Otherwise it is set up pretty fair. You don't want to reward mediocre play.

Personally I'd be against, the status quo was good. I used to enjoy picking out matchups each week against weak offensive lines, or QB's who liked to hold on to the ball to the last second (Big Ben!).

That's the beauty of NFL, the roles are genuinely different and yet each one is crucial in it's own way. If there was a way of incorporating offensive line, I'd be for that too.


Four up and four down is fine - to be honest I was just thinking that it might encourage more people to get involved if you can fly up the rankings a bit quicker. I know I'd be frustrated if I was div 2 or 3 and it was harder to go up than to get to the Div 1 playoffs. Plus if I get relegated and say this next year, people will say it's only out of self interest... :)

Four up Four down it is. It's only a way to have a satisfactory way of deciding the champion that's driving this, and I think a hierarchy is the best way of doing that, each league has a champion.

The Divisions within the leagues are only for the purposes of mimicing the real deal, and a preference I have.

As for the DL, the reason I don't like it is that there are often people missing off the DL lists, and LBs are rolled in with DLs, which is unfair because it's a completely different position. Also a lot of LBs are not included. DB seems to have most if not all Safeties and Corners, which is why I like it, but I'm not pushed either way.  Can we get a last minute push for the leagues to join up lads, Dinny are you in?

We had that at the start and the QBs had massive scores up.
The points have been modified down the years and are fairly close to been fair at the moment.

The obvious glich is the RBs and its very hard to deal with it.
Currently a 20yd TD run will get you virtually the same points as a guy who goes in from half a yard.
Buts it the same in soccer. The penalty taker will be worth more due to getting the "easy" shot.

Maybe if there was a way to credit the guy doing the hard work
For example if you gave 2bonus points if an RB has 20+ (or 25+) in the game.
It might soften the blow for the owners of guys who lose goal line carries.

As regards the DB and DL. I would be in favour and 1 X DL and 2 X DB and use the extra space for another receiving position like a W/T (WR or TE) which we previously had.
If there are only 12 teams per division there would be more than enough to fill the rosters.

It might soften the blow for the owners of guys who lose goal line carries.

As regards the DB and DL. I would be in favour and 1 X DL and 2 X DB and use the extra space for another receiving position like a W/T (WR or TE) which we previously had.
If there are only 12 teams per division there would be more than enough to fill the rosters.

Actually there should only be 10 teams per league if we all sign up to make 30 (3x10).

Lets focus on filling the 3 leagues, and then we can tweak the scoring/rules if we want to. There are a couple of ideas I've seen that I think merit some discussion, but lets do one thing at a time.

I deleted the Tribesmen from the Payton but it says I need a league ID and password to join a new league (Montana)?

The league id is the last 6 digits in that URL (305948) and the password is cardinals.

Having the same problem as GBB. Can you increase the max teams per league while we are moving house...

Smackdown Clowns have signed up for the Superbowl League. Just need the Nuggets, Revis and Butthead, Red Hand Helmets and Corssmaglen Hitmen to slink off to their lesser leagues now, and the Shower of Tramps, New York Jets 5 and Hegan's Helmets to take their rightful place at the top table.

We'll move on to settling the 'B' championship then, but a lot of that will be done by this movement.

All (passing, rushing, receiving, defensive* or return) TD's should have the same value of 6.

We had that at the start and the QBs had massive scores up.
The points have been modified down the years and are fairly close to been fair at the moment.

The obvious glich is the RBs and its very hard to deal with it.
Currently a 20yd TD run will get you virtually the same points as a guy who goes in from half a yard.
Buts it the same in soccer. The penalty taker will be worth more due to getting the "easy" shot.

Maybe if there was a way to credit the guy doing the hard work
For example if you gave 2bonus points if an RB has 20+ (or 25+) in the game.
It might soften the blow for the owners of guys who lose goal line carries.

As regards the DB and DL. I would be in favour and 1 X DL and 2 X DB and use the extra space for another receiving position like a W/T (WR or TE) which we previously had.
If there are only 12 teams per division there would be more than enough to fill the rosters.
Rossie, I understand your point on the QBs but how many are going to throw 3+ TDs a game? Maybe 4 in the league.
 
The RB who is a goal line scoring specialist will get 6 for the TD but only maybe another 3-6 points for yardage while a starter who scores 1 TD but has 100+ yards will have far more points. The one league I play in has it set if your RB does not rush for a min. of 80 yards he gets minus points and if he gets less than 2 catches minus points. That scoring rewards starters and punishes goal line vultures which makes sense although the way Yahoo is set up you can not do that.

If every TD is of equal points you still reward the workhorses by passing yardage, rushing yardage and receiving yardage. So it makes your draft decissions more important just like a real team. If I have the option of picking a stud QB or stud RB who do I choose? Well thats what makes it interesting, there are maybe 3-4 top tier QBs and maybe 4-7 top tier RBs. So I have to look at the possible scenarios playing out till my next pick (11picks later) will an above average player I need to fill out my roster be there or do I settle?
Last year at the high end New England averaged 31.7 pts per game and  the low end was Carolina at 12.pts per game with an NFL average of 21.95 pts per game. So a team should average 3 TDS per game. Thats why I feel ALL TDs should be of equal points. Where a Fantasy team scores their points from is the rushing, receiving and passing yardage based on your draft choices.

Jets V are now in the A league, side note on the relegation issue if its not to late. If you finish in the bottom two thats fine your gone but if you finish 3rd/4th last the coresponding team coming up should have more points than that team in order to get promoted.9 times out of ten probably this will be the case anyway. it wouldn't be fair if a team  scored say 1500 points got unlucky with match ups  got relegated & the team coming up only scored 1000.

According to Rankings from last year, this should contain


Rehab is 4 Quitters 1642.90
Crossmaglen Hitmen 1638.06
Craigyhill Terrors 1628.61
Captain Pats Vikings 1589.18
Faithful Turfmen 1584.13

Ruthless Rossies 1513.06

Old Jack City (now Revis and Butthead) 1500.00


At the moment we have the following correctly there...

Crossmaglen Hitmen 1638.06

Remember, the divisions are important in this game. No matter what league you are in, the playoff (and promotion) will be decided as follows.


2 Divisions of 5 teams in each.

The winner of each division qualifies for the playoffs. The division winner with the best win-loss record is seed #1, the other division winner is seed #2

seeds #3 and #4 are the wildcards, and are the two best losers (in win-loss) regardless of which division they come from.

Seeds #1,2,3 and 4 will be promoted for next year.

The playoffs will see #1 v #4. #2 v #3 in the semi.


This holds true for all Leagues.

Throw in current commentators and former Superbowl MVP's Troy Aikman and Phil Simms just cos it came into my head reading a list of Superbowl MVP's and there you have it!

Post by: DrinkingHarp on August 11, 2011, 10:46:29 PM
Lads, just doing the draw for the Divisions within the 'A'Championship at the moment. East and West, North and South is not really applicable any more, so any suggestions for names? (I've all 10 team names, including hegans helments in a hat).


My 2 cents


Since we are the manager/coach the divisions should reflect that title.

A Championship     Vince Lombardi     George Halas  divisions   The two most famous coaches in the history of the league.

This would be the elite of the elite hence A championship



B Championship     John Madden       George Allen   divisions     The two coaches with most wins behind Lombardi.

Almost the best but not there yet makes the B championship.



C Championship     Bill Belichick           Andy Reid  divisions         The two active coaches with most wins.

The new guys on the block trying to make it to the show at the C championship .

Post by: Rossie11 on August 13, 2011, 09:15:18 AM
If we are putting things up for a vote. Here are 2

1 point for a running back gaining 10 yards instead of 20 which is too difficult.

The size of the divisions. Should there be 8 10 12 or 14 teams in each division?

I think the 1 point for 20 yards rushing and receiving is good, it keeps better parity between Rbs, Wrs & Qbs. If you change it for the Rbs the you have to look at changing the 1 point for 50 yards passing also which would cause a lot of hassel.
Done a quick check and A Foster the top RB from last year would have almost double P Mannings score last year if it was 1 point for 10 yards and manning had 4700 yards + 33TDs a good year by all accounts...
Dont mind how many teams in each division. I suppose the number of entrants is going to determine it in the end...

As mentioned before 1pt for 10yards is too much.From the example above no way was Foster twice the worth of Manning last year.
I would be in favour for a few bonus pts for a high number of carries but giving RBs this extra value would mean your 1st 2 picks would have to be RBs.
That distorts the draft and isnt close to the reality of the players value
Title: Re: NFL Fantasy Football - GAABoard Superbowl VII
Post by: magpie seanie on August 13, 2011, 12:53:11 PM
It really is too much to give 1 point for 10 yards. You'd actually have to draft RB's with your first 3 picks if this came through.
Title: Re: NFL Fantasy Football - GAABoard Superbowl VII
Post by: mc_grens on August 13, 2011, 12:54:53 PM
I thought the scoring system last year was bang on. RB's are not madly valuable in the real game so they shouldn't be in our game- it's a passing league.

Also- any player based naming system for the divisions without including Jerry Rice is just wrong.

Bringing back the old W/T position (either receiver or tight end).

Hi AZ and lads.

I'm not online enough to follow all these polls. My main issue with deviating from yahoo standard scoring is that if you're not online the day of the draft then the team you get is picked on the basis of yahoo standard scoring and not any system we pick. Yes, i know all the players can be reranked. Ok I would vote for a w/r/t position

OK, It's 12-6 now. 18/30 is a decent quorum, so I'm calling this 'passed'.

I'm proposing that this be the final change, so unless you have anything you really want to get in, that's it.

I have made one small change on all leagues as well. I've added a Roster Spot for IR. (Injury Reserve). Basically if on of your players is on IR, or goes on IR, you can put him in here so you don't take up a roster spot, but you don't have to get rid of him.

Generally speaking IR means you're gone anyway, but occasionally lads come off IR after the season starts.

That was my next question to ye :) Remember I have to do 3 drafts. Now with 10 teams it should be shorter than last year.

Our options are either Weekday (nights) Irish time, but that discommodes the American based lads who work, or else Weekends.

Given that there are 3 weekends between now and the launch of the season on 8th Sept, we have to get our house in order.

On the basis of my own availability (selfish I know), I would prefer three drafts on the following times.

This weekend - Sunday Evening (after the Football Semi Finals)

Next Weekend - Sunday Evening (after the Football Semi Finals)

Saturday 3rd September Evening OR Sunday 4th September Evening (after the hurling finals).

In fact, if it is Sunday evening, then the later the better. I'm talking Sunday game time. What do ye think?

You can only have people there who are on IR in real life. In the NFL IR is used for people who are injured. If you are put on IR you cannot come off it that season, so if one of your guys goes on IR he's gone. However, I think you can be on IR from a previous season, and come off it during the current season. That's the only reason you would pick up someone on IR.

Thanks a lot, Capt. Pat.  Is it possible to cut and paste the entire draft?  BTW, Capt., why three QBs?

I might trade one. Schaub was the best player on the board at about pick 50 so I took him. A bit greedy but it will work out well for me having two elite QBs and Flacco. I don't know what the plan is I could even trade Rodgers and run with Schaub and Flacco.

I can't copy and paste on the phone. Drafting on the phone which blacks out at times  contributed to some strange draft choices.

How many good players did you take off the board ahead of my pick? It will be dog eat dog in division 2 of the league after AZ Offaly changed the rules this year to have divisions. Now I know how the Limerick hurlers feel.  :P

10 team leagues make for good drafts. Everyone should feel they have a decent team at the end of it as well. Capt. Pat's Vikings would be some offense in real life. When you see Shiancoe going in the 19th round it shows you what a 10 team draft can do. That was the 187th pick. Last year I'd say Shiancoe went in the 6th or 7th round.

Missed 1st round and got AP in the default. Cant believe 8 RBs went in 1st round.
I wasnt going to pick one until the 3rd round at least.

Hitmen, Turfmen, Capt Pat's, Rehab, Craigyhill.......

After looking over all teams I don't see any one team running away with the title. One team maybe stacked at rb or wr but not qb, te or vice versa. The ten team limit is ideal in that every team is competitive and there are enough players to be picked up off of waivers due to injuries or suspension.

On a side note, based on this draft it does look like most owners have a grasp for players and their position needs compared to drafts from just a couple of years ago. Should make for a competitive and fun season as long as everyone participates.

Hitmen to win it all  ;)

AZ, 

On waiver wire pickups, I think it should be locked again like last year so those of us State side don't vulture the wire while your side is sleeping. Tuesday night at 6pm (Irish time) would be the best time after the Monday Night Game. This would give people stateside and people getting home from work time to hit the computer.

I'd agree with you almost totally. The only things I'm unhappy about are that I didn't get an elite QB (thought they went too early), and that I didn't get a quality backup for Gates (a TE will show up at some stage).

Why do you think that Mcgrens?
Last year top 10 points scorers were 5 X QB's 4 X WRs and 1 X RB
This year its projected that it will be similar  5 X QBs 3 X WRs and 2 X RBs
Great pick on Gates at 31 by the way. He is projected to be 14th overall.

I just didnt like the value that I was getting when x QB came to me. I think, without checking, that 30/31 when I picked  5 of the 6 elite QBs had gone, and I'm very wary of Manning's injury. Then I was getting ready to pick Shaub but he got snatched away by Capt Pat. Which was a surprise. I thought I was nailed on, as everyone had a QB by then and I'd rate Schaub 7th on my board and was getting him 11th or 10th among QBs.

I had planned to go for Ryan grant in pick 6 as I felt he'd drop to me there and I could strengthen WR and take a TE early, which is worth it if you can get Clark, Witten, or Gates. I'm happy with my receivers- Welker at pick 6 was a change since I didn't get Schaub, and represents great value in a PPR.

I'm happy with my receivers- Welker at pick 6 was a change since I didn't get Schaub, and represents great value in a PPR.

Actually scratch that I remember now- I took Welker because he's a PPR beast (was really good for me last year except for the couple of weeks after Randy Moss got the boot when the Pats were trying to revamp their Offence). I felt I had to take him, and knew I was gambling that Roethlisberger or Schaub would drop to me. I think Matt Ryan was also on the board at that stage, and it looks like the Falcons are going to throw it more this year. I also quite like the two QBs I took as decent low round value. If Capt Pat hadn't picked up 3 QBs I'd have been ok.

When I saw I was picking 10/11 I knew I'd only take a QB there if Rodgers was still on the board as I don't like Vick from a health stand point- he gets killed at the end of every one of those rushes. I had decided that if the other top QBs had gone I'd wait and strengthen other positions instead.

Don't blame me McGrens I just took the best player after all the good running backs were gone. I play fair I even gave a warning before the draft about not drafting Ryan Williams and Mikkel Leshoure. You got Lesean McCoy and Ryan Grant who are a level above Beanie Wells and Ryan Torain who I ended up with

You still got the next best QB in Freeman who is still on the up. There will be little or no difference between him and Schaub. Orton should get better support from his team mates this year as well. You also got Gates who is a cut above all the other tight ends leaving me to take Findley. It is all a part of the  game.

PS that Giants cornerback Terell Thomas with all the fantasy points last year is gone on IR. No need for anybody to waste their waiver pick on him.

So the 2nd draft is on tomorrow . Juding by the comments after the 1st draft been able to participate in the draft seems to make it a lot more interesting than previous years when a lot of us just auto picked our players.  Intersting in the 1st draft the importance different teams placed on the defense and Kicker judging by the way they were picked.

Title: Week 1
Post by: AZOffaly on September 05, 2011, 01:47:34 PM
Well, it's nearly upon us. NFL Week 1 starts on Thursday night with a great game between the last two superbowl champions as Drew Brees and his Saints travel to holders Green Bay Packers and Aaron Rogers. Make sure you have your teams set before then.

Remember our Waiver Wire rules. Newbies, pay attention. Anyone who has not been picked on a team in our league will automatically go on Waivers from the day of the first game of the week, until the following Tuesday. This means anyone who wants any of those players can put in a claim for them.

If your claim is successful (i.e. has the highest Waiver position) you will add that player when the window opens. The reason we have a window is to stop an unfair advantage for people who have access to a PC as the games go on and a starter gets injured or something.

Waiver Position is determined in inverse order to the draft order. If you are successful with a waiver claim, you will be put to the back of the queue for the next claim you make.

So, here we go. Best of luck to everyone. Any questions, let me know.....

Just as an aside...

I think both ESPN and yahoo now afford the opportunity to do Dynasty (Keeper) leagues. Would anyone be interested in starting one of these on the side?

I'd love to do it, but we'd need 10 or even 12 to make it interesting.

I was a bit disappointed immediately afterwards but on reflection I did ok. I suppose everyone has the feeling that they just missed out on one or two guys that would have nailed it for them. The 1.5 mins flew alright, nearly didn't get one of my picks off.

Will have a look at ESPN.

Also - would be interested in a keeper league, I'm addicted to this stuff now!

We'd draft teams this year and play as normal, probably with one or two IR slots in case your best player gets injured.

Then for next year we'd have agreed a number of players to keep before the draft. E.g if we agreed to keep 3 players. Each team keeps the 3 players they want to and we redraft the rest of our teams.

However, (taking my team from this year as an example) as payment for the players you keep you lose the draft pick that you used last year on them. So if I decided to keep McCoy, Freeman, and CJ Spiller (If Freeman continues to evolve and Spiller breaks out).

That would mean that next year I'd have no 1st, 8th, or 17th round picks, but potentially I'd have my starting QB and RB's sorted.

You can have all sorts of different options on how many players you keep, what the compensation would be, etc. I haven't checked the system out yet, but I'd imagine the ESPN/ yahoo systems replicate that.

The one thing is it's a multiple year thing that you'd be signing up to. I've a mate in the states who's been in the same league for 15 years!

I'm amused that you think a minute and a half flew.  Last night I drafted in an ESPN league with only 30 secs picking time.  Screwed up some of my selections big time.

Also, in our league, albeit the lowly "C" division, I picked up Aaron Rodgers with the 11th pick (1st QB to go), but last night he was first to go followed by Brees. In fact, 8 of the first 12 players to go were QBs.

Keeper leagues are fun if you have players worth keeping, but if you don't, it's like gawking at sweets without a penny to buy one.  I like the system as it is.  Nothing like a newbie (at least in this league) with an opinion.

Curious to see the differences between the Yahoo and ESPN leagues.

ESPN is gas with the autopicks as well. I was in an ESPN draft last night too, with 7 people out of 10 turning up. However, the 3 autopicks pick immediately in ESPN, there's no '30 second lad', so it was like Bang bang bang when they came up. You're head would be spinning trying to keep track of who was autopicked.

"He's going to throw for 5000 yards" is what you said anyway. You might not be far off on that though. My favourite was when you said - "watch this lads" just before your pick and then went for Ochocinco. Not a percentage play but the guy is talented and is teaming up with the best QB (certainly that is healthy) and coach in the league.

In a 10 team league, I always like picking 8,9 or 10. There's going to be plenty of good players to go around, and to have 2 excellent players there is ideal. The problem with picking 1st is you have 1,20,21,40. I'd prefer 10,11,30,31.

In a 14 team league, I'd prefer to be in the top 3 or 4.

Draft question. Or more likely, a daft question. I must be a complete galoot.

I and a couple of others drafted two defenses, but most others drafted only one.  Why is that?  What will happen when that team has a bye week?  Will they simply pick up another, and probably weaker, team off the waiver wire, or will they simply take the points hit that week?

Pick up a def on the waiver wire that week. Based on matchups a defense could score decent points but may not be consistent enough to be your regular defense.

Depends on how good your bench defense is. Maybe combined with another player or two you could use it in a trade with someone with a weaker D. I did a trade last year with 3 players, all about needs and wants. Good luck!

I picked Randy Moss in the first round last year and he caught a total of 28 passes for the season with 3 different teams! I was very competitive despite this so don't worry about picking up a second defense in the late rounds instead of a guy who might be a long shot anyway.

The free agents will be locked before tonights game so if you have a few injury worries for Sunday you will need to have their replacements ready on your bench.
Players in your lineup only lock into their position a few minutes before their own game kicks off...

Agree about the red zone. I actually saw a decent amount of the Cardinals game on it. Fecking Cardiac Cards again. Can't defend the pass to save their lives. Over 400 yards to a rookie QB! And then, in traditional Cardinal fashion, they have a 4th down stop as time expires, on their own 2 yard line!

Beanie looked good, as did Kolb. Last year the Cards lose that game by 30 points.

Got there in the end but got a good run for my money from the Shower of Tramps (that's turk isn't it?). This is going to be a dog eat dog league this season.

Am in 2 other leagues this year so suffered the same number of defeats this week as I did in my previous fantasy "career" to date! Very unlucky in both though!

Question - made a bit of a boo boo picking up a Defense from a waiver wire (not our league). I dropped my starting tight end instead of the Defense I wanted to get rid of. I've immediately stuck in a waiver claim (I'm 4th on list). Question is - should I post this up on league forum and ask that no-one else pick him up or keep shctum and hope the guys with priority 1-3 don't go for him?

Its Owen Daniels so not soooooo big but don't want to lose him. Its a random league, no idea who the others are. Only one TE in play and I've just picked up Hernandez off the waiver wire so not the end of the world if someone gets Daniels ahead of me.

And so the first week of the 7th year of GAA Board fantasy NFL is in the books, and I thought I’d take a different slant on it this year. Given the fact that we have 3 leagues, with the same players featuring in all the leagues, it would be very confusing to go down the route of a commentary on each game. Suffice to say the results were as follows

Joe Montana Superbowl Championship
Faithful Turfmen ‘B’ 162.74 – 111.23 Ballyhaise Bills
Galway Bay Tribesmen 146.10 – 120.89 Mayo Warriors
Coolera Bears 150.93 – 134.38 Shower of Tramps
L’Esprit de Biff 167.87 – 104.89 hegan’s helmets
Smackdown Clowns 166.23 – 156.99 New York Jets V

Wins for the Turfmen, Tribesmen, Bears, Biffs and Clowns, with L’Esprit de Biff taking top scoring honours in a division where every team topped the ton. Game of the week must be the Clowns beating the Jets 166.23 to 156.99.


Walter Payton ‘B’ Championship
Faithful Turfmen 154.64 – 135.43 Revis and Butthead
Ruthless Rossies 152.29 – 115.98 Crossmaglen Hitmen
Capt Pat’s Vikings 142.69 – 148.71 Red Hand Helmets
Rehab is 4 Quitters 97.05 – 120.94 Craigyhill Terrors
Royal Badgers 158.40 – 130.19 O’Neill’s Chargers

More high scoring in the ‘B’ Championship as the Badgers top scored with 158.40, while the Vikings and Helmets fought out a titanic tussle with just 6 points separating them at the end. The Turfmen, Rossies and Terrors will also be happy to start 1-0.


Jerry Rice ‘C’ Championship
Faithful Turfmen ‘C’ 130.70 – 104.88 Superdubs
Derry No Clues 111.96 – 103.84 Uibh Fhailians
Puppet Master 141.58 – 98.25 Curragh Rams
Oraisteach’s Browns 179.67 – 119.29 Big apple Orchards
North Antrim Nuggets 111.55 – 137.82 Savage Bears

The Turfmen ‘C’ made it 3 from 3 for the Turfmen stable, while the No Clues, Puppet Master and Bears all claimed victories in the third tier. Pride of place, however, must go to the Browns, managed by Oraisteach, who tallied 179.67 points, the best score among all 30 teams.

In terms of a rundown, I thought I’d give a real life reprise of the games, mentioning the big Fantasy hitters and that might be more informative in general to all users.

So, here goes.

On Thursday the Packers outlasted the Saints in a thriller to get the season up and running, as Aaron Rogers and Drew Brees had a ding dong battle in a 42-34 victory for the Superbowl Champs. Rogers passed for 312 yards and 3 scores, while Brees actually outdid him in the stats department with 419 yards and 3 TD passes.  The rushing games were sedentary enough with rookie Mark Ingram the Saints top yardage man with 40, while James Starks from Green Bay was the day’s top rusher with a modest  57 yards. With such high passing yardage, there were a few good receiving days, including Greg Jennings, Jordy Nelson, Marques Colston and top of the bunch Devery Henderson with 100 yards and a touchdown on 6 receptions.

The roundup of Sunday’s slate of games begins in Baltimore, Maryland, where the Ravens absolutely destroyed Big Ben and the AFC Champion Steelers on a scoreline of 35-7. 7 turnovers in one game is unheard of in the NFL, and when it’s such a team as the Steelers, then eyebrows are raised even more. Perhaps rumours of the Ravens’ defensive demise were exaggerated, and Fantasy owners were feeling smug if they started the birds. Speaking of smug owners, the managers who own Ray Rice will be happy as the Raven’s top man rushed for 107 yards on 19 attempts and a TD, as well as another TD reception and 42 yards on 4 catches. If Rice was the player of the game, Joe Flacco pushed him close with 3 TD passes and 224 yards, while Anquin Boldin looked sharp early, even though he faded as the game went on, and finished with 74 yards and a TD on 4 receptions. For the Steelers, Roethlisberger had the proverbial nightmare with 3 interceptions and 2 fumbles, but he did manage 280 yards to the right jerseys and a TD.  Rashard Mendenhall didn’t produce as owners would have hoped with only 45 yards on 12 carries as the Steelers had to abandon the run. Mike Wallace had a promising game with 107  yards on 8 receptions, but again the Steelers were throwing more than they will normally.

The first battle of Ohio saw the Bengals overcome the Browns and Colt McCoy in a tight struggle, thanks largely to recently incarcerated running back Cedric Benson, who took advantage of his new freedom to run for 121 yards and a touchdown.  Colt McCoy was the top QB on show with 213 yards and 2 TDs, but the Texas Alum had less than 50% completion percentage, which will not do the job in the NFL. There were no outstanding receiving performances on the day, with Mohammad Massaquoi the best of a mediocre bunch with 3 for 77.

Not a million miles away from Ohio, it was a case of Oh-oh in Indianapolis as the Colts had a glimpse of what a season without Peyton Manning might look like. The Houston Texans strolled into town and obliterated back up QB Kerry Collins and the Colts by 34 points to 7 in a big early season AFC South showdown. Matt Schaub was an efficient 17 of 24 for 220 yards and a TD, but he didn’t need to be much more.  The Texans made light of Arian Foster’s absence as  backup Ben Tate torched the Colts ‘D’ for 116 yards and a TD, while big time receiver Andre Johnson chipped in with 7 receptions and a TD to go with his 95 yards. The Texans may just be ready to take the mantle from the Colts in the AFC South, even if Manning returns. For the Colts, Reggie Wayne did his bit with 106 yards and a TD receiving, and Kerry Collins wasn’t horrible, with 197 yards and a TD, but he wasn’t, well, Peyton Manning. The ground game was tepid, with Joseph Addai the best of a poor showing with 39 yards.

Also in the AFC South, a close and tight game went the way of the home town Jacksonville Jaguars, despite dispensing with the services of David Garrard just a few days before the opener, as they beat the Tennessee Titans 16-14. This was a matchup between two of the top running backs in the league, and Maurice Jones-Drew outshone the top paid back in the league, Chris Johnson, with 97 yards and a score, while Johnson was held to 24 yards on the ground. Kenny Britt, of the Titans, was the big receiving story in the game as he hauled in 136 yards worth of passes on 5 catches, 2 for TDs. Those 2 TDs were Matt Hasselbacks only 2 TD tosses in the game, but he also had 263 yards in a solid debut for the Titans. Luke McCown did just enough to get the win, but he won’t be having fantasy owners reaching for the waiver wire.

One of the shocks of the day took place in Kansas City, Missouri, as the Chiefs were rocked 41-7 at Arrowhead by the Buffalo Bills of all teams. Ryan Fitzpatrick had a stellar day with 4 TD passes off only 208 yards , while Fred Jackson racked up 112 yards on the ground. Steve Johnson and David Nelson each had 4 catches for 66 yards, which is about as balanced a 1-2 receiving threat as you can get.  As might be expected, the Chiefs were a ghost town for fantasy points, with Matt Cassel having 119 yards and 1 TD pass, while their best rusher had 56 yards, and the best receiver had 26 yards. Enough said.

Meanwhile, up in the Windy City, the Chicago Bears had an impressive victory over one of the fancied pre-season teams in the Atlanta Falcons. The Bears prevailed 30 points to 12, and managed to keep the Falcons danger men out of the endzone, and the fantasy reckoning as well. Michael Turner did have 100 yards, and Matt Ryan passed for 319 yards but had an INT and a fumble, while Roddy White had 8 catches for 61 yards, but none made the endzone.  Jay Cutler got the better of the QB Battle with 312 yards and 2 TDs, although the Falcons only TD came from a pick 6 Cutler threw. Matt Forte looked more like himself with 158 all purpose yards, including 90 receiving, and a TD.  Brian Urlacher was the defensive player of the game with a fumble recovery for a TD, and an interception, as well  as 6 tackles.

In Tampa Bay, the Detroit Lions served notice that they may indeed be a force even though they are in a competitive division as they came away with a 27-20 victory. Matthew Stafford is a big factor for the Lions at QB, and if he can stay injury free his 305 yards and 3 TDs show what a weapon he can be. Of course he has weapons to aim at, and Calvin Johnson hauled in 2 TDs from Stafford. Jahvid Best had 72 yards on the ground on 21 carries, and has the potential to be more productive in fantasy terms as well, as has TE Brandon Pettigrew. For Tampa, Josh Freeman was dinged up, but managed to return to the game and accrue 259 yards and a passing TD, but when he is also the Buccs top rusher with 26, you can see the problems they had. Kellen Winslow and Earnest Graham had decent receiving games but Winslow is a Tight End, and Graham is a Running Back. Mike Williams did receive a TD pass, but with only 50 yards, the receiving corps are going to have to step it up better than that.

In Saint Louis, the Rams provided staunch opposition to the ‘dream team’ Eagles, but at the end of the day Philly were able to prevail 31-13. Worryingly for Rams fans, and fantasy owners, Sam Bradford left the game in the 4th for X-Rays on a finger injury. He hadn’t lit up the game in any case, with 17/30 for 188 yards, and no TDs. Steven Jackson may be a bigger worry for fantasy owners. He looked great in 2 carries early on, racking up 56 yards including a 47 yard score, but pulled a play later with a suspected thigh injury. He left the game, and must be a worry for future games. Veteran Cadillac Williams took over and had 91 yards, so he may be a viable handcuff option for Jackson owners. Michael Vick, the preseason MVP favourite in many peoples eyes had an ok day with the arm, 14 of 32 for 187 yards and 2 TDs, but his running was again a huge weapon as had 97 on the ground. LeSean McCoy took up where he left off last year with 122 yards and a TD on the ground, while DeSean Jackson also hit the high notes with 102 yards and a receiving TD.

Up in the capital, the Washington Redskins had a great win over the New York Giants, 28-14, and a man that will feature in very few 10 team leagues, Rex Grossman, was the star of the show. The Redskins QB threw for 305 yards and 2 scores against the Giants Defense, while Timmy Hightower validated his good preseason form with 72 yards rushing and a TD, as well as 25 yards receiving. Grossman’s favourite target was Santana Moss, with 6 receptions, but Tight End Fred Davis had 105 yards receiving on just 5 catches. For the Giants, it was a disappointing start to the season, and Eli Manning didn’t manage to find the endzone with 268 yards and a pick thrown in for good measure. The much heralded running attack never really motored either, with a combined 73 yards for Ahmad Bradshaw and Brandon Jacobs, although Bradshaw did hit paydirt. Hakeem Nicks did give his owners some hope though, with 7 receptions for 122 yards total, but nothing in the endzone.

Out in the desert, the Arizona Cardinals hung on in a crazy game as Can Newton, the Panthers QB, blew away all sorts of records in his rookie debut. 422 yards and 2 TDs may say more about the Cardinals secondary and pass rush than it does about Cam, but it was some performance for a debutant, and didn’t deserve to end on the losing side. Steve Smith, the evergreen receiver, dispelled doubts about his conditioning with 2 TD catches and 178 receiving yards in total. Greg Olsen, the TE also had 78 yards from Newton. With all those balls flying around the air, it was no wonder that DeAngelo Williams (30 yards) and Jonathan Stewart (26 yards) were quiet enough.  The Cardinals only hung on thanks to a 4th down stop on their own 2 yard line to preserve a 28-21 win, but Kevin Kolb and Beanie Wells will have encouraged their fantasy owners. Kolb was 18/27 for 309 yards and 2 TDs, while Wells gained 90 yards on the ground and had a rushing TD as well. Early Doucet reappeared on the fantasy radar with 105 yards and a TD off 3 receptions, while Larry Fitz had just 3 catches for 62. Of course if Doucet, King, Heap and Roberts keep making plays, defences may give Larry a bit more space as well.

In an NFC West showdown in the city by the bay, the 49ers had a great win over the Seahawks, largely thanks to special teams, and particularly Ted Ginn Jr, as the former Ohio State Buckeye had a 102 yard kickoff return and a 55 yard punt return for touchdowns. Alex Smith at QB had a slow start with 124 yards passing and won’t be on many 10 team rosters, but  he didn’t make many mistakes either.  Frank Gore had a decent, but not great, 59 yards on the ground, while Vernon Davis the TE was the most productive receiver with 47 yards on 5 catches. For Seattle, Tavaris Jackson was as advertised, as feared, and while he had 197 yards and 2 TDs, he also had an interception and 2 lost fumbles. Stanford Rookie Doug Baldwin was a surprising receiving leader across both teams with 83 yards and a TD, and it will be interesting to see if this is the start of a good career for him.  Big Mike Williams had 4 catches also, but for only 34 yards.

Down the coast in lovely San Diego, the Chargers overcame a shocking start, and a dodgy first half in general to get by the Vikings 24-17. Percy Harvin took the opening kickoff 103 yards to the house, to start off on a savage note, but while the Vikings had some success on the ground, Adrian Peterson had 98 yards on 16 carries, Donovan McNabb had a very strange day, and one that won’t have Fantasy owners worrying about their waiver position. McNabb’s line read 7 of 15 for 39 yards (!), 1 TD and 1 INT.  Obviously in such a scenario it’ll be hard for receivers to shine, even though Michael  Jenkins caught the TD.  For San Diego, Philip Rivers had a so-so day, but he showed the potential he has on a high powered passing offense. He had 2 INTs, but added 335 yards and 2 scoring passes as well. Mike Tolbert, splitting time with Ryan Matthews at running back in San Diego had a great scoring day as a receiver and a rusher, without a pile of yardage. He found himself in the endzone 3 times, once rushing and also twice as the recipient of those Rivers passes. Antonio Gates was Rivers favourite receiver, apart from check downs to Tolbert, with 8 receptions for 74 yards, while Vincent Jackson owners will be slightly worried about a 2 for 31 yard day.

Sunday night saw ‘America’s team’ travel to play the feisty Jets and Jerry Jones will certainly see this as a game thrown away as Tony Romo and the Cowboys had one of those 4th quarters that make people question their right to be called contenders. Nick Folk’s kick won the game for the Jets, but Tony Romo’s pick moments before was the critical moment, as Revis Island claimed another victim. Mind you, a blocked Matt Briar punt that was returned for a TD by the Jets special teams 5 minutes earlier was just as important in the larger picture. Romo also fumbled, unluckily, as he was trying to eke out some more yardage. In fantasy terms, Romo was ok, despite the turnovers as he had 342 yards and 2 TDs, while Jason Witten and Miles Austin were productive receivers. Felix Jones had 44 yards and a TD on the ground as well. Mark Sanchez, or Sanchise as the press call this ‘Franchise’ player, was encouraging in his opening game of just his third season as he had 335 yards and 2 TDs, as well as an INT himself. He spread the ball around too, which is a good sign for the Jets, if not great for fantasy owners, as Tomlinson caught 6 for 73, Plexico avoided shooting himself in the arse to get 4 for 72 and a TD, Santonio Holmes had 6 for 70 and Dustin Keller had 5 for 61 and the other TD. The Jets’ ground game was worrying for fantasy owners, and Shonn Greene’s 10 for 26 yards will not do at all.

Monday night’s first game saw one of the all time Fantasy points feasts, especially through the air, as the Miami Dolphins fell 38-24 to the New England Patriots. The Patriots, and Tom Brady looked awesome, but Chad Ochocinco was not a big factor at all, which is slightly worrying for his owners. Wes Welker was outstanding, but in general commentary is superfluous. Just look at the lines, and you’ll see why a lot of fantasy ties had dramatic late swings with totals like this.
Passing- Brady 32/48 – 517 yards – 4TDs – 1 INT; Henne 30/49 - 416 yards – 2 TDs, 1 INT.
Receiving – Welker 8-160, 2TD; Hernandez 7-103 1TD; Branch 7-93; Gronkowski 6-86 1 TD
                  Marshall 7-139; Bess 5-92; Fasano 5-82; Bush 9-56 1TD; Hartline 4-47 1TD.
Yep, that’s 62 completions combined, 97 passing attempts, 933 passing yards and 6 passing touchdowns. Incredible stuff. Not surprisingly, the running backs didn’t have much to do with things, but Danny Woodhead did manage 69 yards with his legs, while Chad Henne actually had 59 yards and a TD on the ground as well.

The last game of the weekend was a more sedate affair in fantasy terms, unsurprisingly, but it still featured a record tying performance as Sebastian Janikowski, the Raiders kicker, took advantage of the thin air in Denver to kick a 63 yard field goal to help beat the Broncos 23-20. Kyle Orton had the Te-boo boys after him in the first half, but finished with a respectable 304 yards 1 TD and 1 INT. HE is certainly a better option than Tim Tebow at the moment, and fantasy owners must be hoping the Broncos don’t do something stupid there. Jason Campbell, in a win, was very ordinary. 105 yards and a TD with no INTs is just about serviceable in this league, but you need other players to lift the team if you are to win, and you could say Darren McFadden’s 150 yards on the ground was just what they needed. McFadden didn’t find the endzone, but Campbell himself did on a QB keeper. The Broncos were more productive through the air, and Brandon Lloyd had a decent 8 for 89 showing, but they featured 9 different pass catchers, which took away from any one being dominant. Knowshon Moreno was a huge disappointment, with 8 carries for just 22 yards, and fantasy owners will need to keep an eye on that to make sure Denver don’t lose faith with the 3rd year starter.

Vincent Jackson owners shouldn't be too worried... Rivers just missed him in a 60 yard bomb on an outside/ inside post route that would've been a sure TD. More often than not they connect on that.

Aye but even if he caught it it would have been 3 catches. I´d expect 5 or 6 per game from him with Rivers throwing.

Apparently the Vikings were fixated on stopping Jackson so kept rolling coverage his way. Meanwhile Rivers kept dumping the ball off to Tolbert and Gates instead with Tolbert ending up having a career day because of it.

Yep, but that may be a theme is what I´d be afraid of. I suppose if Gates and co can hurt the opposition, then coverage on Jackson might ease a little. It´s great for the Chargers, not great for his owners :)

True although I don't think every team they play is going to play two safeties deep just to try and stop Jackson. All it did was leave huge space for Tolbert and Gates to abuse.

You were right. Instead of going over the top with both safeties the Pats used Pat Chung in coverage on Gates. Worked a treat too. VJ ended up with a decent game.

Small point, but not anymore. The teams no longer have to give designations until the Friday. Up until then they only have to give info on what part the player took in practice... E.g.

Did not practice
Was limited in practice

I don't know how yahoo work this during the week now. They could just not update it at all until Friday, or perhaps they make educated guesses. I find Stephania Bell on ESPN.com a good source for keeping abreast with injuries.

So this is my thinking on the 10 man league. Most people have solid teams and the smarter picks from waiver wires and trades dont necessarily have the same impact because people's rosters are already so deep.
I lost Foster and Manning (should be close to 40 points a week) and I don't see any light at the end of the tunnel. Nearly ruined my season. I need a RB but have nothing to trade with......

You're kinda right... The challenge in a ten man league is that it forces you to make decisions between lads. Like this week I chose Cadillac Williams at flex over Devery Henderson, whereas in say a 16 team league my choice probably wouldve been much simpler, maybe Henderson over Jordan Shipley or Eric Decker.

Also FAO The Claw. Just saw your trade now. I'll have a think.

It is tough alright, but it's good. I lost twice this week by a combined total of less than 7 points :D And the one I won I won by 6.91 points. In fact my 'Points difference' for the week on my combined teams was +1.27!!

And in one of the games I lost my TE, Greg Olsen from Carolina, had a TD catch waved off for a penalty, and the TD went to the other TE on the next play. Vonkers.

With only 10 teams per league most people were able to pick up 4-5 solid players that last year would have been 2-3. Waiver Wire pickups could have been made on players that might grab 10 points here or there but 10 points isn't going to do you any good when teams are throwing up 200 +
People are less open to trades because they already have a strong bench.
I was just unlucky to have Foster and Manning on the same team. These next few weeks will knock a few people out with a lot of injuries that normally occur in the preseason. Might open it up a bit....

Iceman, methinks you're overdoing the complaining here. 150 points would have won three out of the five division one games, and you have thirteen slots to fill. Getting ten points out of a waiver wire pick up is very useful, when you still have a few frontliners capable of contributing more.

All that said, I still prefer to see more players starting for this very reason, to dilute the importance of the top 3 or 4 players on each roster and give more weight to good analysis of either/or situations. I can't remember the last time a player like Tom Brady, Ray Rice, Aaron Rodgers or Andre Johnson got traded, so the top draft picks seem to just get picked and sit.

All ye who voted to get rid of an extra DL should go to the back of the class and think about what ye've done...  :D

Still I knew there was a reason I avoided Kenny Britt in the draft.  After two good weeks he is likely out for the season. He is car crash tv a double whammy of character and injury issues holding back his undoubted talent.

Kenny Britt tore his ACL and MCL. Pick up Torrey Smith to replace him.

A big third Quarter for me in the second set of gamesn After being 31 points behind I am now 16 points ahead of the hitmen. Rodgers has run for a couple as well as passing for three?

Two weeks in a row going against another team who has a player go off for 40+ points, last week Wes Welker.  ::)

Need Tampa D to pitch a shutout and get lots of turnovers.

Lardarius Webb gets an interception return touchdown to end this contest? My biggest score ever I think 166 with Reggie Wayne still to play. There have been 5 non offensive TDs out of 6 in the Jets Ravens game. The most in NFL history. There could be more?

Well foster looks like he is back but I'm still down one RB, will have to keep tate on the bench though as he may get injured again

I missed out on Tuck.... not bad matchup though

Waiting for the bye weeks now to shoot ahead here the next month or so.

The advantage is you get a good waiver pick every week even though you have the best team already. Soon your team will be unbeatable.

8.    Shower of Tramps    0-4-0    
9.    Ballyhaise Bills    0-4-0    

George Halas Division
1.    Smackdown Clowns    4-0-0    
3.    Galway Bay Tribesmen    3-1-0    
4.    L'Esprit de Biff    3-1-0    
6.    New York Jets V    2-2-0    
10.    hegan's helmets    0-4-0    

Walter Payton 'B' Championship

John Madden Division

5.    Derry No Clues    2-2-0    
7.    Big Apple Orchards    1-3-0    


Things take a wrinkle here now as we head into the bye week portion of the season. It becomes less about picking matchups and more about skillful use of the waiver wire as well as availability and backups in your roster. This is where the draft gets tested :D

If the season ended today, the Playoffs in the Superbowl would see the top ranked Smackdown Clowns face off against the #4 L'Esprit de Biff while the #2 Faithful Turfmen 'B' would be facing the GalwayBay Tribesmen in a repeat of last weekends tussle. The Helmets, Bills, Tramps and Warriors would be facing the drop.

In the 'B' division, the promoted teams and playoff hopefuls would be Craigyhill Terrors, Ruthless Rossies, Red Hand Helmets and Revis and Butthead, while O'Neill's Chargers, Rehab is 4 Quitters, Captain Pat's Vikings and the Crossmaglen Hitmen would be plying their trade in 'C' next year.

The Jerry Rice Championship would be between the Oraisteach's Browns, puppet master, Savage Bears and North Antrim Nuggets, and these 4 would be looking at promotion to the 'B' division.

Something i noticed in the scoring that i think should be changed for next year, its very minor though. A blocked kick is only worth 2 points to the player that blocked it, think this should be 4 points, the same as a forced fumble as the result of both is a loose ball...
As i said its very minor but it could cost someone in a close matchup...

Good point Declan. I think the reason is that this was always a 'team' stat rather than an individual one, and so when they added it I must have missed it. I would normally give more points for a named person making those plays rather than the 'team'.

Of course I could have missed it from Day 1 (7 years ago) but I'm not sure it was there then.

Ballyhaise Bills fairly made up for me taking guys ahead of him in the draft with this weeks waiver wire. Totally screwed me over.

I've some decent RB cover on my bench especially Michael Bush who will be a top 6 RB when Run DMC gets injured but I need help at WR/TE. Anyone got any proposal for me?

I have made one small change on all leagues as well. I've added a Roster Spot for IR. (Injury Reserve). Basically if on of your players is on IR, or goes on IR, you can put him in here so you don't take up a roster spot, but you don't have to get rid of him.

Generally speaking IR means you're gone anyway, but occasionally lads come off IR after the season starts.

i can't find this roster spot at all  :-[

It's actually pointless for our leagues anyway because it's not a keeper league, as I realised belatedly. What you can do is select the guy you want to move, and you'll see a new blank spot open up.

Some guy went from 4-1 to 1-4. The commissioner went from 1-4 to 5-0...
They had all paid $30 each into the league...

They were doing something like a point per yard for rushing & receiving to give the guy with the carries the edge over the goal line back, dont know what a TD was worth. A point per two yards passing. Changed that to a point per 20yards for both...

I expected to be able to say yes, seeing as you are 5-0, but there really isn't anyone there that would be jumping out at me. I'm looking at Mike Williams, Mike Thomas, Deion Branch and Nate Washington as my four - while I'd like to upgrade that, I don't think any of yours really is an improvement, other than Larry Mac G of course. And for obvious reasons, I'm not expecting him to be up for grabs!

i would have expected more from Brandon Lloyd, but until we see what kind of QB Tim Tebow is going to be, it would be a huge punt.

I've been scoring well until this week, but the core lads are Brady and Forte really. If Fitz and Arian Foster pick up the pace I should be in a good position, but my receivers are of the solid 10 point a game type, rather than the 20+ point monsters.

It occurred to me over the weekend that you're unlikely to be relegated from Div.1, and you're currently in a top 4 position in Div. 2. What happens if you get promoted. You can't do a Berlusconi and own two teams in 1 division!

Will the 5th placed team go up, or will 4th from bottom get a repreive?

I think I need to have one team in each division as commisioner. So if I get promoted, I'll just stay and let team 5 go up. That was my thinking anyway. If I get relegated, which is not unlikely :) I'm not sure what to do. Obviously team 1-4 need to come up, but do I send down team 6?

Like yourself I'm hoping to see some fireworks from Hester so hope his injury isn't going to stop him playing. I'm going over and have a ticket already. Both teams badly need a win.

Fairly pee'ed off with this fantasy malarkey. After a shaky week and a player I dropped awaking from his torpor against me I was still comfortably ahead when I checked this morning with only Plaxico Burress to come for my opponent. Somehow between that and me arriving in work he got 10 more points so now I need Burress to do nothing tonight or I'm 3-3 (with same points scored a the guy going to 6-0!!!!). Only lost 2 games the whole of last season and next week is going to be verrrrry ugly for me - 8, that's right, 8 of this weeks starters on bye next week!

Results and Standings after Week 6

GAA Board Superbowl - Montana Championship

Faithful Turfmen B      111.03    mayo warriors   92.89

Galway Bay Tribesmen    148.79    hegan's helmets  155.64

Coolera Bears    118.59    New York Jets V  115.84

L'Esprit de Biff    129.33    Smackdown Clowns     138.76

Shower of Tramps    102.96    Ballyhaise Bills        118.01

Faithful Turfmen B scrape another low-scoring, lucky win over the luckless warriors who fall to 1-5. Great game, especially in a bye week between the Tribesmen and the Helmets sees the Helmets take a great scalp for their first win of the season. Despite Seanie's fears, Plexico Burress did indeed do very little, and so the Coolera Bears held on in a close one against the New York Jets V. Another good high scoring game saw the unbeaten Smackdown Clowns edge out L'Esprit de Biff while the last game provided another first win, this time for the Bills as they saw off the Tramps. All of this means there is no winless team in the league, and the standings are as follows.

Vince Lombardi Division


2.    Faithful Turfmen B    6-0-0    1.000    4-0-0    818.01    644.79    W-6    9    4
4.    Coolera Bears    4-2-0    .667    2-1-0    804.79    799.33    W-1    7    20
7.    mayo warriors    1-5-0    .167    1-2-0    789.70    833.00    L-3    4    9
8.    Ballyhaise Bills    1-5-0    .167    1-2-0    697.73    819.85    W-1    3    14
9.    Shower of Tramps    1-5-0    .167    0-3-0    689.07    791.04    L-1    2    13

George Halas Division
1.    Smackdown Clowns    6-0-0    1.000    3-0-0    891.04    770.36    W-6    10    15
3.    Galway Bay Tribesmen    4-2-0    .667    2-1-0    977.36    844.11    L-1    8    17
5.    L'Esprit de Biff    3-3-0    .500    1-2-0    819.02    817.52    L-2    6    8
6.    New York Jets V    3-3-0    .500    1-2-0    813.49    790.07    L-1    5    15
10.    hegan's helmets    1-5-0    .167    1-3-0    664.41    854.55    W-1    1    8

The Smackdown Clowns are the #1 seed and sit atop the Halas division on 6-0 while fellow unbeaten Faithful Turfmen claim #2 as first place in the Lombardi Division. The two wildcards at the moment are #3 Galway Bay Tribesmen, and #4 Coolera Bears. With 8 games left, a lot can still happen, but the 4 1-5 teams will need some recovery to get back into Wildcard Contention. #10 Hegan's Helmets, #9 Shower of Tramps, #8 Ballyhaise Bills and #7 mayo warriors occupy the drop zone at the moment.

Feck's sake. Went to bed with a 60 point lead last night and awoke this morning to see I'd lost. The Jets D, Revis and Marshall put up 65 odd points overnight. Unbelievable. I wasn't even worried about being overhauled. I even remember thinking yesterday it would take a couple of Revis interceptions and him running one back for a TD to have any chance of being caught and the bollocks did exactly that in the first quarter. Absolutely sick especially with half my team on a bye next week. Way out in front on points scored and I'm only 3-2. Soon to be 3-3.
