Re: DL spots

Okay pro-DL guys,
Let’s say NFBC announces they’re adding 2 DL slots starting in 2019.

But they’re taking away 2 bench spots.

Happy now? Didn’t think so.
You just want your cake and eat it too.

Game too hard. Change the rules.

Re: DL spots

7 bench spots allows the owners to carry injured players. Its all about weighing cost and benefit in doing so. Injuries suck, its part of the game. Exactly. Good fantasy players don’t overload on prospects and players who are injured or have shown a history of getting hurt. The podcast pundits (the...

Re: DL spots

FWIW The guys on the ESPN podcast “Fantasy Focus” discussed DL slots this past Thursday and basically came to the conclusion it’s smarter to have no DL and instead have an extra bench spot. Too much hassle and grief especially since you can’t put a player into the DL slot until they’re officially on...

Lol, I think they’ll send him to ATL right after Teheran throws a complete game winner @ Wrigley. Straight up swap. Cubs need the pitching.

Re: Draft Champion Leagues

An interesting read. Both previous posts. I think the solution is more options for those who want clocks of 30-90 minutes. Plus perhaps DC drafts with the overnight pause based on the Pacific time zone too. Drafters who are taking their first stab at an NFBC slow draft seem to want the slower pace a...

Re: Week 1 Scoring Period To Start The 2018 Season

Here’s a puzzler for you:

If we have a hitter whose team is off Friday in an active roster spot, can he be replaced Saturday with another player whose team did not play Friday?

That’d be a first, I think :geek:

Re: Draft Champions Leagues: Set Your Queues NOW!!

Really glad I stuck 20 players in my queue. I wasn’t aware of this message from NFBC (I’m sure at least half those in my league don’t even read the forums) so I was surprised to see the clock running at 05:45 CT today. Only a couple of rounds had gone thru since I went to sleep earlier. I wasn’t on ...

Re: First faab

I’ve heard Alex Cobb will be optioned to the minors to get prepared to join the Orioles rotation.
This means he’s available in today’s FAAB but if not called up before next Sunday he won’t be biddable in leagues where he’s a free agent.
Is that correct?

Re: Slow pokes and Draft Champion Leagues

Our DC is still in round 34. When I asked in Chat if we could pick up the pace please, one manager said: “maybe slow drafts aren’t for you”. Any slow draft that’s still got a clock longer than 1 hour and more than 10 rounds to go should be throttled up today. We need to get these done before opening...

You could call him lucky.
But imagine how lucky he is if he took Bumgarner at pick 31 in every league.

this is why all main event leagues should be blind bidding on your draft slot. we apportion free agents that way. should be the same process for draft slots. we don't assign free agents "randomly". if someone can explain how having some owners/partners receiving multiple #1 main event picks this ye...

Or you could just use Auto? Idk just a thought? Sure. But it’s some of the same people who asked for the overnight pause who say “there’s no way in hell I’m going on auto when there’s more than 3 picks ahead of me”. I guess rather than getting the players they want they’re a slave to ADP and don’t ...

Re: DC draft rooms down?

Seems like some people think the DC draft rooms are down.
No one makes picks during the clock pause and more than one owner times-out during the daytime.

Round 15 of a 2-hr Draft Champions league.

We’ll need to adjust the clock to 1-hr sooner or later, so why not sooner?

Re: Slow pokes and Draft Champion Leagues

It just takes one owner who works a job where phones aren’t allowed to cause a speed bump during daytime draft hours. I know at least one guy in our current DC who is west coast. They want to keep the clock running later. Would it improve the situation if there were a choice of leagues based on cloc...

Re: Slow pokes and Draft Champion Leagues

Just became apparent at least one owner in my league was under the impression you can’t make picks while the clock is paused overnight. If there’s a misunderstanding of the clock pause by 1 or more in every league it explains a lot. How can NFBC get the word out to newbies to let them know to keep m...

If managers keep pulling SP after 3rd time thru the lineup, QS will dwindle and disappear except for a few workhorses. In a game with no ties, there will always be a Win.

Not sure about other leagues but in my last 2 there have been nearly half who are totally new to NFBC. It’s probably got a lot to do with the casual attitude toward making prompt picks. The overnight pause seems to bring the idea “if it’s after 8pm and I’m not on deck there’s no reason to log in til...
