panda and i were considering the idea of trying to put together a fantasy league with some of the knife guys here and maybe other kitchen guys we know. this fantasy league would have no affilation with kkf at all. infact im not even going to give anymore details about the league here openly because it probably isnt appropiate. if youre interested or want to know more pm me and we can go from there. i hope this ok with the mods, lol.

ive heard good things about yahoo. im used to cbs, but it costs too much $$$. definitely ppr. i know panda likes idp, but we should prob vote on that. once i get everyone confirmed. i plan on making a questionaire that we can all vote on. im thinking 12 teams, atleast. leagues with 10 teams are too stacked imo.

well, i was worried the mods wouldnt want many details discussed here, but so far so good. im cool with any site(nfl.com,espn, yahoo, whatever). as long as its free or almost free. cbs is like around $150 these days and thats just silly.

I would be interested, but only if limited to 12 teams. Once you go to 14, or even 16, I think it just gets to thin.

labor of love
07-29-2013, 11:50 PM
i played in a 20 team league once. its hard, but it also forces you to evaluate more players. everyones teams had strengths and weaknesses, like the nfl. but yeah, its only for the more hardcore i guess. i say 12, but if we get alot of interest maybe go to 14. nothing is certain.

panda

yahoo, it's free and i've been using it for the last ten years. looks like north carolina is going to dominate this league, haha. we need volunteers for commish and then we take a vote. cut off at max 12 teams.

preseason officially started today. not that i bothered watching lol. i figured i would give this thread a little bump though. were still at 8 teams. and the commish spot still seems to be up in the air. i have some PIF knives laying around here that i may bribe knyfenerd with to be commish. if everybody else feels good with getting knerd to lead us maybe we could see some knife donations headed his way? as a token of appreciation for jumping on the sword:biggrin:

08-04-2013, 11:25 PM
mc2442 is Matt, not Marc....btw

normally do 12 team leagues, ppr optional.....say 1 pt every 10 rushing or receiving, 1 per 30 passing 6 td, however, bonus at 100 rushing or receiving, 300 passing, then every 50 after....other details....

08-04-2013, 11:50 PM
sounds like standard ppr format. which i think is what everybody wants. sorry, i dont know where i got marc from.

panda
08-06-2013, 12:12 AM
hell yes vote on PPR.

i dont like bonus points. how about stacked points for team defense? i know most of you probably don't want IDP, so why not make the DST actually important. one of my other leagues chicago D went in 2nd round! and guess what, they proved to be smart because with our pt system chicago dst was #15 highest score OVERALL.

just noticed this "joke". he was awesome in college! here in baton rouge he was a hero. now hes the biggest draft bust in history and has shamed the LSU athletic department. and yes, i drafted him in his rookie season in fantsasy. i thought he was going to transform the raiders lol.

I'm in if you'll have me. I do a big money league which I actually won 2 years ago and can manage another league but really don't want a 10 team. I like 12 but 10 and everyone is too stacked.

labor of love
08-09-2013, 12:28 AM
awesome. that makes turbochef number 9. the problem with 10 team leagues is people who know very little about football can still have a stacked team and compete with fantasy know it alls like me.

mc2442
08-09-2013, 01:08 AM
I have been playing a long time, and agree with the sentiment that I prefer to beat a guy who just picks up a 2 month old magazine right before the draft the vast majority of the time. That being said, I have less and less time to really prepare for a draft as the years go by. Keep up to date on injuries and key position battles, but not to really "over" prepare like I use to years back. I still prefer a 12 man league with a decent sized bench so you just can not pick up quality players on the waiver wire every week, but I normally still have fun in a 10 man. It is amazing, however, how much average strength increases from a 12 to a 10 man league.

labor of love
08-09-2013, 01:16 AM
how many rounds in a draft do you guys like? personally i feel like if we start 10-11 players a week, we should have an 18 round draft/18 roster spot teams. ive been in leagues where there were only 15 roster spots, which sucked for me i had to constantly pick up free agents to stay competitive.

panda
08-09-2013, 03:09 AM
I think draft is overrated, the free agent pickups and weekly roster management are far more important
. that said I like multiple bench spots, but there's really no reason to have more than 15 rounds unless you want to fight over Geno smith and dirty Sanchez in the 18th.

labor of love
08-09-2013, 04:19 PM
ive already written my power rankings. thats how much of a fantasy football junky i am. the thing is theres sleepers i like pretty far back in the draft.well past the 15th round. i feel like if you do your homework and draft a strong team you wont have to rely on free agency as much. ofcourse $hit happens during the season and its important to keep up with current news in the nfl, and take care of your bye week replacements.

panda
08-09-2013, 05:59 PM
seems like more than half of my starters always get injured, at one point i finished season with only one starter from my original draft.

mc2442
08-09-2013, 10:50 PM
I like a deeper bench. I don't like choosing who to drop between a starter either injured or on a bye, and a prospect/backup I have

3 spots remain open. 3 weeks until the season begins....

labor of love
08-14-2013, 03:19 PM
we have a potential person interested. hes never done fantasy. i told him to study ppr rules and pick up a mag or 2 and he should be fine. so, if hes in that leaves just 2 spots.

08-14-2013, 11:34 PM
last year in my old school fantasy league the guy who won drafted darren sproles in the first, darren macfadden in the second. pretty impressive i would say. ofcourse he scored torrey smith in the 7th, rg3 in the 8th round and alfred morris in the 11th.

pumbaa
08-14-2013, 11:38 PM
i had sproles and except the 2 games he was hurt he was a BEAST in ppr for me. I had t.smith he was alright. I drafted sproles 2nd round and was 2nd in a fantasy sharks tiger league and they are TOUGH these guys live ff.

labor of love
08-14-2013, 11:55 PM
as a saints fan i must say i love sproles. but taking a 3rd down back in the first round is ludicrous. then again, i took jimmy graham in the first last year. regret that big time. what is fantasy sharks tiger league?

08-15-2013, 11:11 PM
by all means, please draft sproles in 2nd round.

by all means, please draft sproles in 2nd round.

in a ppr leauge that give points for return yards dude was number 3 overall last year even missing 2 games behind peterson and calvin johnson. and @labor fantasy sharks is a huge fantasy football website and they have their own leauges you start in lemon shark and move up to great white depending on how well you do. so i am on tiger which is level 3 so far. these guys live ff they are pretty tough.

08-18-2013, 09:45 PM
I have never been a fan of points for return yardage. The one year I was in a league that counted it, 10 or so years ago, the Detroit kick returners were some of the highest scoring players.

labor of love
08-26-2013, 03:29 PM
i just finished a draft yesterday. basically every player that you might think is a sleeper gets taken 1-2 rounds early. finley went in the fifth. kembrell thompkins went in the 9th. reggie bush was the first pick of the second. my only regret is i didnt get enough running backs early. all the decent running backs will be gone by the end of round three, and pretty much all the good starters are gone by round 2.
but i did get jordan cameron in the 9th, and gronk in the 5th so im pretty happy.

pumbaa
08-26-2013, 06:25 PM
i picked up vick as my backup in the 12th, i got dwyer in the 16th---should start since bell is out still atleast week 6, picked up vincent brown in the 11th since him and gates are the only 2 going to catch anything in san diego, and go denarius moore from oakload---though they suck him and dmc are the only 2 doing anything in the 15th.

labor of love
08-26-2013, 06:39 PM
i got dwyer late also, plus i got marcus wheaton for pittsburgh who could surpise. i got jonathon stewart in the 14th round. i need some of you carolina people to give me inside scoop on that panther running back debacle. leveon bell maybe back for week 6, but its not looking like hes going to get much playing time atfirst.

pumbaa
08-26-2013, 11:27 PM
umm i wouldnt touch a panther other than olsen, smith, and cam. d. will looks old, stewart is getting a 2nd opinion on his foot today who knows, and barner is too damn small unless they use him like sproles.

08-26-2013, 11:49 PM
as a saints fan, i must say im not too impressed with what ive seen from carolina and tampa so far. atlanta just got even better with steven jackson on the roster, theres no way gonzales can maintain his production he had last year... saints def is slowly falling apart as usual...

08-27-2013, 04:47 AM
I like womans Soccer both Canadian & American girls.

Drew Brees is one of the best pocket passers to ever play the game IMO.Even wt. all the Saints troubles he still threw more touchdowns 43 than anyone else last year.He is 5th all time in TD's & is still playing.He is too short,the Chargers let go of him when he was injured.

The new popular QB's that can rush too like Griffin,Kaepernick,Newton,are hard on defences if they are good at the Read Option.Of coarse these high profile QB's can get injured running down the field.In time smart defensive coaches will figure out how to stop it.

Payton is back,Saint's defence is a priority.I think it will be either Saints or Atlanta in the NFC South.

12 team 1/2 point ppr draft tomorrow. Planning on RB rounds 1,2 & 3. Then WR 4 and maybe gronk or another WR. And wing it from there. I love a RB as my flex.

Is there anybody you guys think I might see in rounds three and four that would be worth abandoning the plan for?

Is there anybody you guys think I might see in rounds three and four that would be worth abandoning the plan for?
if you get a rb in round 4(bernard,gore,lacy,wilson,miller)instead of round 2 you could still end up with a good running back group and have a top 5 wideout instead(aj green, dez bryant, marshall,or thomas). theres plenty of really good wideouts to get this year late in the draft, running back quality disappears by the end of the fourth round. besides graham, gronk to me is the only tight end this year worth a 5th round pick and he fell to me no problem.

panda
09-04-2013, 01:44 AM
who'd yall end up drafting in your other leagues?
PPR league with passing td 6pts so an elite qb is worth a lot.
qb: cam newton
rb1: arian foster
rb2: lamar miller
wr1: brandon marshall
wr2: antonio brown
te: antonio gates or brandon myers
flex: desean jackson, giovani bernard, mike williams
d: baltimore and st louis
k: who cares!? i drafted the tampa kicker from last year just to fill the spot, apparently he's NA so i have to pick up another off waiver, lol
hail mary 15th rnd pick: terrell pryor, i'm seeing tebow like results but way more rush yards!

i passed on david wilson in the 3rd hoping he falls to the 4th and took cam instead. kind of regret that but i'm pumped i have cam for the first time as he's my fav qb.

mc2442
09-04-2013, 02:07 AM
I am not thrilled with your starting QB, but has a lot of upside....just a lot of risk. Rooting for Foster to do well, even if I do not have him, but did well for me before. Jackson as flex should be golden, even if I hate the cocky bastard. Hopeful for Miller since I had him late. Good luck with the season!

If he scores 20 TD's then that would be something. With the way Denvers offense is built I think they will not have more than 12 rushing TD's as a team. To compare Arian Foster had 17 TD's last year (15 rushing 2 rec) and he is a beast!

every year gates falls and i always draft him because of the awesome years he has given me. i think it's time i get off the gates wagon that's been on the decline for a while...

how the hell did vereen get over 100 yards rushing on 14 carries? thats nuts. plus his receptions. pats are trying to fill the void left from the absence of hernandez and gronk.

I was in the same spot, I decided to bench him after last week and this week he blows up. I guess the squeaky wheel does get greased (after it was reported that he blew up on the OC). His value is a little higher than it was previous weeks but Im going to keep him since he is the legitimate WR1 on that team and worth a flex spot.

I was 37 points up heading into tonight in a fairly standard scoring league, non-PPR. I was done, he had Manning and McFadden going. Peyton is about to beat me and it is still the 3rd quarter....joy. I was definitely worried, but looks like it was legitimate.

lol, maybe I should keep typing...just fumbled it.

anybody here made a trade yet? im always in the mood for a trade, but usually the offers are so lopsided i can never get one done. i particularly want to get rid of demarius thomas, i figure the broncos to lock up a playoff spot early and will start playing softer in the last few games(during fantasy football championship). cant find a decent suitor though.

Chuckles
10-07-2013, 10:57 PM
Yeah. I traded Julius Thomas away last week because I was sure Gronk was gonna play and I couldn't afford to keep two TE with all the injuries on my team when the byes started. So now I just got torched by him for 31 points and lost by 4. This season has been very frustrating so far.

Ugh my worst year yet. I don't do much with research, just because I have seen it go to nothing. I picked up Brady thinking I would get at least 20pts. a week from him. Also got Luck in the draft. The one week I play Luck he throws for 12, and Brady had his best week so far.

i wouldnt start brady until gronk returns, especially if you have luck. i watched a whole lot of preseason games this year, i basically planned my draft based on the preseason performance. i knew early on that jordan cameron and josh gordon were gonna be good, they shined in preseason-and you know norv turner was going to try and recreate antonio gates.

The team I felt better about after the draft, 5-7 going into this week. The team that got Calvin Johnson and Drew Brees in the first 4 rounds, and had horrible running backs for most of the season....10-2 after a 0.5 loss last week. At least one of my two leagues is working out....tied for best record for a potential buy week, and only 4 points behind in total points

Chuckles
12-01-2013, 05:52 PM
Horrible. Work league 1-11 not kidding. The number of times I played a defense and kicker combo that out scored my running backs and flex combined.... Brutal. Other league 6-6 and not looking good for this week.

Last year this time I was 11-1.

This must be what Ray Rice feels like.

i drafted rg3 in the fourth round, however ive found pryor,bradford,locker,cutler,fitz,and foles all have outperformed him. thats right,ive started 7 qbs this year, all of which i scored out of free agency so at this point im wondering why even draft a qb before the 8th round?

12-01-2013, 06:37 PM
Ya scored Brady in the first round, was the worst pic I had. Luckily I picked up Luck in the 5th(?) has been good ever since. Had Gore last week against the first place team, he had SF def.. Had the lead before the game (less than a pt.) ended up losing by 12. That is how my year has been.

I am assuming you have not heard of Peyton Manning? Google him.. haha just kidding around. I had Cam Newton and also got Foles in free agency. My league was crazy... Brees was the 4th overall pick (by a SD fan). Seatle defense in the second round... Just a crazy draft. Looks like today could be the end of my injury ridden season. 4 Starting RB out due to injury and 2 recievers, plus Gronk... Bad for me but still made the play offs...

half my picks were busts(rg3,amendola,gronk,jared cook,)but the draft isnt really a big deal these days. even if you have a bad draft you can still find gems in free agency. i got nick foles,knowshon moreno,danny woodhead,keenan allen and chiefs def in free agency.

12-08-2013, 11:38 PM
Chuck, I would love to be in that draft. Although it has been a crazy enough year that some crazy picks end up being the difference maker.

I am rooting for Brees to have another TD or 2 as points matter, although I am glad I have a bye in the one league I am still in. He is a rock!

so...im kinda obsessed with fantasy football i guess. im already putting alot of thought into next years draft. fortunately because i won my league so i get to pick last, or 12th. which is a good thing because i love back to back picks(12th and 13th pick,36th and 37th pick). being stuck in the middle of the draft order is the worst for me.
