Yeah never mind I really don't like the rules

it's seriously the fairest, most evenly spread scoring system ive ever played fantasy with. it takes into account every component of a player's value. i think any adjustments from standard rules in this league are for the better.

I'm just not a big fan ppr

half point PPR is a big difference to full point PPR. in full point Calvin Johnson will put up 40 points a game, i understand that. no PPR, however, means the dude with the best runningbacks is the dude who probably wins the league. but half point really closes the gap between good wide receivers and good runningbacks -- it opens up the possibilities for your flex spot humungously and makes draft strategy much less single-minded. that's actually the thing i like MOST about this league. try it, i bet you'll like it

even from a skill = points perspective, hell any receiver with speed can land 80 yards on one catch with the right situation. the receivers who make more catches are the ones who are consistently getting open, and are able to both read defenses and adjust to their quarterback, so i think having some kind of PPR is a better indicator of skilled players in receiving positions. put it like this: when watching football i certainly would value 4 catches for 20 yards just as much as (if not more than) 1 catch for 35 yards.

and you complained about points for return yards? i have two words for you: Josh. Cribbs. he was cleveland's MVP for awhile -- he would have been practically useless in most fantasy leagues but give him half point PPR and return yard points, and he puts up 8 to 13 points a week when you really need a fill-in while your receivers have bye weeks, or if you're desperate to fill a flex spot. like i said, this league takes into account ALL of a player's value, not just the highlight reel.

Maybe ill try a half point ppr league. I just didn't want to drop $50 and go in without knowing who to draft or what to do.

I'm working 12-8 today, and there's like a miniscule 1% chance I may have to stay late. If it starts getting sketchy with the 10:30 draft time I may start to push it back. What's everyone's limit tonight?

My commute home is 20 minutes tops, so as long as I get out of here by 10 I should be fine. And like I said, I've never had to stay that late, but other people have and Thursday nights are usually a bad night here, which is the only reason I'm throwing a warning out there.

If it's gotta be pushed back a bit tonight, I'm good with it.
