Another idea: to have a league with a simplistic single draft, where strictly progress counts. (This was the hidden idea behind RC, but many people misunderstood the concept and consequently built poor teams, so this is an attempt to make it more explicit.) As soon as you draft Valverde, your total score goes to -3152, and you spend entire 2016 trying to first erase the deficit and then score some more hopefully. So it doesn't actually matter if you draft for -3152 and score 3162, or draft for -152 and score 162.

A variant could even be to score not for the entire year, but only till the first team surfaces above zero and ends the game immediately. (With a sizeable obligatory minimum amount spent.)

Sounds funny

Why? What's the problem?

Why did Stuyven game change? There were a few cheapies before he was picked.

I will explain fully - this and a couple other parameters too - after my 8th pick. No need to shoot myself in the foot just yet.

The OG in Rio are in my strategy a very bad thing, as all the top GC-riders are aiming for olympic glory, and it is perfectly combinable with TdF. So that will end in more points for GC-riders. But it will also result in a few surprises. Guys who aren't running the perfect season, or who feel they can't win the tour, they can decide just to ride the tour as preperation for Rio. For example Gesink already declared to skip GdI. He's going 100% for TdF and Giro. He will do the Ardennes-classics also, but between the lines you read allready that he is not interested in good result there.
Interesting season!
And big question: Who will start in the vuelta if everybody aims for Rio ... Propably the guys who get injured or sick during the season.

Yes, I also keep running different simulations on how that goes, with contradictory results. I think acclimatization in a completely different climate is tricky right after a GT. You might even try to skip acclimatization whatsoever. Froome and Quintana want gold, but in Beijing, the Tour's top 5 sucked. Instead, Rebellin and Kolobnev excelled at CCSS, arrived late, and excelled again. Somebody like Gallopin could pull it off easily. On the other hand, Dumoulin could finally decide to focus on the Giro, and then spend some weeks in Brazil.

I actually wanted Valverde

Another horrible 1st-rounder, if you ask me. He's a decent round 6 pick to me.

In general, I have no idea why everybody keeps discussing the different types of riders. They are completely irrelevant. What matters is the expected point/, its variance, expected availability at round X etc. Is 1.1p/1 realistic? Is 1.2?

Most important pick so far? Jasper Stuyven. Totally changed the scene for the rest of the draft, tactically speaking. Game-changer.

FYI: the first :IAM: timer expired at 1am CET. The second will expire at 1pm CET. :Vacansoleil:'s timer will then start and expire 1am CET.
Rule reminder: anybody who misses their pick have the right to announce it later, but cannot go for the riders chosen by others in the meantime.

Not bad!
A. I could request a separate forum for "Mini Leagues".
B. I'd split 1) into cobbles and Ardennes.
C. I'm in Rio almost all August, so possibly would need help setting up la Vuelta.

  • pandoval172: stephen drew had questionable makeup from the start. swanson's makeup, work ethic universally praised. bregman same.
    Yesterday at 10:14:55 PM
  • pandoval172: there's always the chance they'll bust, but the more optimistic comps for them are in the jeter/garciaparra/pedroia range
    Yesterday at 10:15:27 PM
  • pandoval172: even if they don't reach those heights, i think both have a good chance to be top 10 at a weak position
    Yesterday at 10:15:49 PM
  • JMAC: drews talent on the field and scouting reports across the board were better than swanson. he only dropped some due to makeup not skills and scout grades on his tools
    Yesterday at 10:16:16 PM
  • pandoval172: ok but the fact that you can find a guy who had similar scouting reports and turned out to be a bust does not prove anything

  • JMAC: im not saying he wont be solid but solid is all i see. similar to drew. plus hit tool plus speed and avg everywhere else. identical scouting reports but maybe swanson becomes more i just dont see it
