View Full Version : Fantasy Football 2012 - The Steel Blue League

I'm going to have some openings in my Steel Blue Fantasy Football League. We will have a live draft the last Sunday night before the start of the season. We will draft on Sunday, Sep 2, 2012 at 8:00pm CDT, with the season starting 3 days later on a Wednesday.

It will cost you $20 up front to join and we pay out $150 for first place, $60 for second place and $30 for 3rd place. You can paypal your fees to the league, so we're making it easy. I'll have the winning money out as soon as everything is finalized at the eoy.

12 team league with 3 flex IDP plus one team defense. I only have one flex position for the offense.

QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, T, WR/T, K, Team Defense, IDP, IDP, IDP

Send me a PM if you would like to join. It will be 100% Texanstalk members and I will not be able to fit everyone who asks in the league, so my apologies up front on that one.

I would like everyone paid up before the draft so that we do not have any issues dragging into the season except for who starts picking up the best FA players on the weekly waivers and is Greg going to lose every game by half a point, to become the highest scoring non-winning team ever...again.

OK the league is full and 75% funded with solid commitments so it looks like everything is on schedule. The live draft is a week from this Sunday on Sep 2 @ 8:00pm CDT. I only request one hard rule in regard to the draft. Once the draft starts please do not talk about any player before he is picked. Once a player is picked you can chat about him as much as you want. Good luck.

That is why I hate Fantasy Football, I score more points than almost anyone in my league but always end up in last place. Its unbelievable that it happens year in and year out.

Anyways, sign me up again.

I have you a place saved.

I'm thinking about hosting two leagues this year. I may set up a Battle Red league to go along with my Steel Blue league this season. I always do this conventional league (Steel Blue) but I'm also thinking of a pure points league as a change of pace. No divisions, no head-to-head. Just straight up who has the most points at the end of the year. I was in one led by a Packer fan from footballguys a few years ago and I liked it. I'm not going to join a ton of leagues this year, so perhaps I'll throw this into the mix as well.

I score more points than almost anyone in my league but always end up in last place.
Two ways to address that:

1) Top half in points gets a win each week -- kinda makes it more interesting in that you have to track more than one opponent's scoring,

or 2) Division winners make playoffs, then next two high point teams round out the semifinals. (We use this, allows for luck of the draw & merit.)

Well, it appears NFL.com has added the most annoying achievements system I have ever seen on a website. NFL.com Rewards is what it's called, and every time you earn coins for doing just about anything, you get popups all over the screen... Cause everyone loves popups!!! :( You can sign up here: LINK (http://www.nfl.com/rewards/myrewards?bd_ref=themishkin) Kinda silly, but maybe it will be worth something.

Jen, check your email please.

Sorry for the late reply....I've been busy and haven't logged on for a few days. For those of you that weren't able to get into this game I set up the Battle Red league when I was reserving live draft slots. I don't think it will be a money league but it will be full of texanstalk members just like this one. I'll set up a thread for that when I'm ready tweaking the scoring system and the roster size. I already have a live draft time reserved (Sunday, Aug 26, 2012 at 8:30pm CDT). It's exactly one week before the Steel Blue draft at the same general time of Sunday evening (that's when I figure most of you can attend).

For the draft, is there a time limit per selection? I ask because I'm going to be overseas for the draft, and after about 2 hours, I'll have to step away and get ready for work/go to work. That will cause about a 2 hour absence. Just want to make sure that I'm not going to delay the draft excessively, and that I'm not going to get stuck having to rely on auto-draft

I think I set it up at 45 seconds. It's kinda hard to preference your players real deep in the draft but it can be done. It would be great if everyone can make the draft for the entire event but stuff happens so don't sweat it if you have to break it off or can't make it. Just be sure to move your player preferences to your liking.

OK, I admit I know nothing about IDP and have never played in a league with it before. 3 of my 4 IDP guys scored 0 points today. I thought tackles were supposed to give 1 point each in standard IDP, but I guess not. It seems like the defensive guys are really lame in this system. 9 of the top 10 IDP scorers this week aren't even on anyone's roster. Just seems weird to me, so what exactly do you normally look for in an IDP player?

Vinny
09-09-2012, 09:21 PM
I don't run a standard IDP and you should have read the scoring system the second you saw that we aren't playing a conventional roster. It's just too easy to find guys making tons of tackles - with too many teams inflating tackle numbers, yada, yada, yada...

Our scoring system revolves around sacks, int's, turnovers - It's more geared to big plays or game changing plays. Tackles are too easy a stat to manipulate and its just too easy to just dial up an eight to ten tackle player any given week on a whim. If you just use a tackle-centered scoring system everybody in the league gets 8 automatic points. All you have to do is sort by tackle and bam...slot any number or players. If you read the scoring system you would only really play sackmasters and guys you project to have int's. Someone starting Von Miller or DeMarcus Ware (for example) had a big day yesterday.

Well, I picked up Clay Matthews on the wire this week and he got my 14. His stat line according to the FF league was 3.5 sacks, 3 TFL, 3 tackles and 4 assists. How that translates into 14 points, I don't know, but I'll take it! Should be 10 by my count.

Anyways, I wish I hadn't drafted the IDP guys early, they seem to be a crapshoot and the waiver wire is very deep. Now I know better for next year.

3.5 sacks * 2 pts per sack = 7 pts
3 TFL * 1 pt per TFL = 3 pts
2+ sacks bonus = 4 pts

7 + 3 + 4 = 14

3.5 sacks * 2 pts per sack = 7 pts
3 TFL * 1 pt per TFL = 3 pts

7 + 3 + 4 = 14

Ah, I missed the sack bonus stat, thought there were fractional points being given somewhere. Makes sense then, thanks.

I thought about getting him, but he just seems too douchy for me. Just can't bring myself to like him.

I'd rather have a "douchey" player on my roster and be 2-0, than 0-2 for any reason. Hell I even have a Cowboy on my team, and I like seeing them lose.

Well, I'm in a bit of a hole, down 32 going into tonight with Lynch, Nelson and CM3 left to go. I'm not expecting Matthews to get 3 sacks again, but I hope he gets a few points. Should be a good game, I will definitely be watching it closely!

I'm down in 3 of my 4 leagues right now, but I have Rodgers and others in those other two. If Rodgers can get it to Nelson a few times for some good yards, I might pull off another 4-0 week! Andre Brown really saved my ass this week, as I put him in place of Fred Jackson in a few leagues. I'm hoping Bradshaw stays out just long enough for Fjax to get back in action!

So what if he had, he would've possibly broken 100 pts if he'd gotten a different kicker, put Little in for Andre, and Finley in for Miller.

Wait for stat corrections on Wednesday, you might win afterall. Happened to me once last year, and was the deciding factor in playoff seeding.

It's not like you didn't earn your win either way.

Yeah, but beating someone that's not even trying it's a pretty empty win. I like rooting for my guys while they are playing, but when I'm up by 60 after the early games, it's kinda lame. I run a FF league, and I kicked a guy out this year because he didn't manage his team after I asked him to do so several times during the year. It kind of ruins the sport of it when one team only tried part of the time, and it could possibly cause a change in the playoff seeding because of a game here or there. I just think it's more fun when people try, even if they are out of the playoff picture.

Looks like it's time to end Vinny's 4 win streak. His team is projected to get 103.4 points this week, but for some unknown reason MJD is projected to get 32 of those points. Somehow I don't think that will happen. I set the league's high score last week with 166 points, so watch out, you're about to get trampled by The Jerk Store!

I get what you're saying, unless something comes up and I'm not able to manage my teams, I will at least make sure I don't have any bye players sitting in my active roster (or injured players).

I think this was a special case instance, otherwise, I'd be completely on your side. Not that it really matters what side I fall on :P

I snuck by 3 Hour Tour with a 95.22 to 95.14 win! Only .8 points difference! Now I'm 5-1 at the top of the league and ready to roll ArlingtonTexan this week. You best watch out, the Jerk Store is going to liquidate you this week!

I was on the short end of that deal! I made a mistake getting Michael Ogletree off waivers. That guy is useless.

Well, it appears the Jerk Store is all alone on top with a 7-1 record. Sitting pretty, but there's another Jerk just 1 win behind, so I gotta keep on rolling through guys like Dez Bryant's mom on a Friday night.

Come from behind victory on MNF! Woot! That last TD from Brees to Graham put me over the top, and my opponent never came back with Maclin, thanks to Vick targeting TEs and Jason Avant almost exclusively. 8-1 and on my way to the playoffs! :D

Actually, I needed Maclin to have less than 2 receptions, be under 30 yards, and not have any plays 20 yds or more. Since he got 2 catches for 28 yards (one for 22 yds), I lost in my other league by 1 point because Maclin scored 4 points in that league (1 pt per 2 receptions, 1 pt per 10 yds, and 1 bonus pt for a reception 20 yds or greater)

My opponent had Doug Martin this week. Doug Martin by himself scored 66.20 points. I lost very badly.

I'm going with Chris Ivory over Matt Forte at RB. Desperate move for a desperate team. At 5-5. I basically have to win out to make the playoffs.

Pretty good thanks. Being #1 in the league is awesome, I'm pretty much guaranteed a playoff spot at this point. But you enjoy fighting for a spot until the last game :)

Well good luck to you in your game, I hope we can have a Jerk Bowl next week in the final game of the season. I actually wish I was playing you instead, but the Texans DST, Drew Brees and Jimmy Graham stumbled the last couple weeks and have hurt my overall scoring. Losing MacGahee in the last few weeks didn't help either, and missing Knowshon Moreno by 1 waiver wire spot also hurt. I'm hoping Bradshaw stays out for two weeks so I can start David Wilson.

Well, I left about 40 points on my bench this week, but I still have a chance to win. I have a 13.8 point lead with 1 half to go. Hopefully Brady will continue to suck and I squeak this out.

Yep. Can't complain too much though, AP got me into two other Super Bowls today. Both of which payout more than this league and have awesome huge trophies :)

I'll stuff the money in my paypal account Monday and I'll shoot it to all the winners at that time. This should go down around noon.

The money is officially paid out.

1st place: Watch The Throne - IBleedTexans -$150.00
2nd place: Overofficious Jerks - Vinny -$60.00
3rd place: Arian's Foster Kids - Texans346 - $30.00

Thanks for playing everyone. I'm going to put more scoring weight on the defenders next season and will probably make them a more important component.

I'm gonna tear down my draft and my transactions later and see what black Monday has in store for my Fantasy GM going forward...

I know my draft didn't go as smoothly as I wanted and ended up patching holes all year. I'm fairly happy with my balancing act though...but a better draft would have been the best path methinks.

Damn, had I won one more game, or scored 33 more points during the regular season, I would have won the championship. I feel like the Texans, 10-1 through 11 weeks, and I stumble into the playoffs losing the #1 seed, which cost me the super bowl.

Well ya know, these kids played their hearts out and left everything on the field, including the W. But it's my fault for calling a screen pass on 3rd and 18, wasting timeouts and putting my rookie kicker on IR instead of PUP. But it's OK, the boss is happy and there's always next year!
