Can we remove the point per completions, I am okay with the PPR but I would like it to get closer to what it was before we started drafting. All of this zeroed out again too would be cool

 

40+ Yard Completions 1

40+ Yard Passing Touchdowns 2

40+ Yard Receptions 2

40+ Yard Receiving Touchdowns 3

I don't disagree but the fact is we didn't draft with that in mind. All the best QBs would have been selected right off the bat. Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees are going to be getting 40-50 points a game, and it wouldnt be unlikely to see them hitting the 60s. Had those been the rules before we started the draft I would have gotten one of them instead of starting with an RB.

I agree with dark fox completly. It would have changed how I drafted. I focused on standard draft for players not factoring in bonuses for qbs

You had said that we would discuss it and change it back in the draft thread, and I really don't look forward to seeing a single player score 80 points when fantasy football was designed for it not to be one position heavy. The average points in standard is around 15 per position on a good team, with this a great QB having a great game will score as much as the rest of the person's team combined. Without proper balance it will just turn into who has the best QB.

 

Also Yahoo is often wrong with projections. I went 14-2 one year after being projected to be last place, and then 2-12 after being projected to be first place another year. Those projections mean nothing.

I agree completely with dark fox.  a qb could easily score more than someones entire team by themselves this way.  i think it puts too much up to flukes.  and yeah the projections dont mean crap.  all it takes is your top four picks to tear their ACL or something (me last year) lol

Well I tried to change it but I don't think it affected the scoring much. I'm gonna need some help. I removed all the 40+ pointers

Completions 1 | 0

Passing Yards 15 yards per point | 25 yards per point

Interceptions -2 | -1

Sacks -1 | 0

Receptions 1 | 0

Return Touchdowns 10 | 6

2-Point Conversions 4 | 2

 

 

On the right has the standard formula, on the left the ones you put in. In my opinion the Inceptions, sacks, return touchdowns and 2-point conversions are fine as is. Completions, passing yards, and receptions should be zeroed out(not counting passing yards which should be 25 yards per point). Also I like what you did with defenses, it sometimes seems like running them is too high a risk.

Advice: There were discussions to cancel the game due to Hurricane Harvey, but the NFL deemed this meaningless exhibition game to be too important.

IFFL starts on a low-key note as most matches underscore!!

 

Defensive mentality prevails in season openers. Only 3/10 teams score more than 100 points. Only 1 match had two 100 point scores.

 

Pakistani teams bag two/two wins despite 1st contact w/ sport!!!

 

Dolphins walk over Dragons despite dismal showing by Brady and co.

 

Favorites Empire downed by weak Lightning. Lahore defense comes up big in crunch time putting the old adage "offense win matches" to test!!

 

Brewsers blowout Texas by 71+ points.

 

Acme stabs HSST w/ Acme made lightsaber through the heart.

 

ThorsHammers make Establishment bow.

 

The owner of Dolphins had this to say: "We won but we should've played better. There's room for improvement and luckily we have time for that. I'm really ecstatic that our country bagged 2 wins. Hopefully we'll make it to the play-offs. We're introducing a new sport to a country that is head to toe deep in cricket passion. So wins and press coverage will help a lot.'"

 

Lahore Lightning owner Aftab had a statement issued: "It's a great day for us. We squeezed out an upset. I couldn't be more proud of the boys. The defense line held strong despite initial losses. We can only get better. Our opponents were the best ranked team and they probably underestimated us. We gave all that we had and then some. Its truly an underdog story at the start of the season. The league has been put on notice. The Lightning can strike anybody!!!"

Kareem Hunt just came out of nowhere and I knew from that instant, it was a loss for me. lmao.

 

Least I don't have David Johnson as a RB. Who has David Johnson anyway?


Gridiron Empire has both Elliot and Le'Veon Bell.

 

Denver Dragons has yet to set their team.
