Re: NFBC To Add New Pending FAAB Tool For 2023

I guess I will be the first to reply on this. There is a lot to like here. The Pending Faab page has always been a great spot to go prior to deadline for a final look at your bids. More than once I have caught multiple same drops on a league, etc. Now showing the FAAB balance as well is great. Love ...

Re: Shits and Giggles

Ha. You might be right! And....I was laughing with you, not at you. Who can figure closers out? I know it won't be you taking a closer before a SP! It's a hard call. On one hand you have fewer guys that are the "true closers" so logically those should be worth exponentially more. On the other hand, ...

Re: NFBC Adds FAAB Copy List To Pending FAAB Page

I know it’s been vetoed in the past for time zone reasons and the like but maybe a few things have changed: - technology has been great. Faab runs in seconds and hardly ever an issue. - seems like nearly all owners are now setting lineups on Mondays (or Tuesdays) as opposed to many setting after faa...

Good one Dan.

Re: A Discussion On The Pause Time For Draft Champions Leagues

Yes, definitely need 8 hour pause, the only question is which times are best and is subject to discussion. 12:00 AM - 8:00 AM EST seems like a happy medium but whatever accommodates the majority and the 3 time zones best but I definitely feel 8 hour pause is necessary.

Re: A Discussion On The Pause Time For Draft Champions Leagues

I would like to see the pause time expanded as well - at least for the 2 hr and 1 hr draft types. I think in general you get a "quicker" group that signs up for these two types and length of the drafts really aren't an issue. I don't think the extra hour or two on either end causes much extra total ...

How times have changed. Phil - Pick 3 - deGrom / Machado Ruland - Pick 15 - Nola / Darvish Phil - Pic...

Re: This Is The Final Scoring Period Of 2021 NFBC Season

Prior to 2018 - I don't remember. In 2018 we could set a new lineup for game 163. In 2019 and 2020 the rules allowed the same. Furthermore in 2020 you took a survey and the survey overwhelmingly favored a new period if you were to count a game 163 (higher amount voted in favor of this than the first...

Re: Innings Minimum

Thanks for looking at this. The trend is downward for sure on IP but 18 of 645 in Main Event is only 2.8 percent and a number of those teams look like the owners gave up on their teams. I agree with Mark on FAAB leagues - still not a problem to get to 1000. Furthermore, it looks like the highest fin...

Re: Trevor Bauer - can he be Cut?

I feel like this rule needs to be removed or clarified for next year. Blake Snell was removed from the player pool in 2019 after his injury in late July even though we knew he'd be out for awhile. Not sure what was different in Snell's case... It could be that all players with a Main ADP in the fir...

Re: 2022 Rule Changes? Saves?

Good discussion! FWIW - the main event totals so far are not pointing to a drop in the Save totals. We are at the 45.8 percent mark (2226 of 4860 games played) and the 80th percentile mark is at 35 which is on pace for a 76 total. 76 would actually be higher than the 2019 and 2020 (pro-rated) totals...

Re: Win $30,000 In The 2021 NFBC Auction Championship

One suggestion is to keep all the $ in the league. Super auction could pay what a Super Draft does. I'm sure a regular auction could have some nice prize points. Seems like a way to protect both sides and there is still plenty of overalls to chase in other contests.
