LEAGUE SCHEDULE BUMMER
« on: September 25, 2018, 02:45:12 PM »
The league schedule for the league is not going to work for this league as set up.

1) Game 12 is suppose to be 1st week of league playoffs: The L.A. Rams and Kansas City both have their bye week and if they are by chance in the league playoffs they automatically LOSE.

2) Starting in game 4 the NFL teams begin their bye week schedule with between 2 and 6 teams off during the game periods 4 through 12. So, by league standards when the NFL team is on bye week that team will automatically LOSE 2 games. Also, is it fair to the league that with the schedule as is, a team may play an opponent that is on a bye week resulting in an easy WIN.

Now for options to the league schedule: 1) extend the regular season from game 4 thru game 12 with 2-games each week = 16 games ea. And extend the league championship to game 17.

2) For each NFL team having their bye week, also have the league team have their bye week and manually redo the schedule that all other teams play their 2 games. This would also drop the league down to 14 regular season games instead of 16, but in a fair way.

In future, a pm would be more appreciated.

The schedule is set, bye weeks are part of football. Diversify your roster by making trades.

I don't see this as a problem. Ever.

I mean, that's why you make trades right?

Unless you're okay tanking 2 matchups per season, and just hope everyone else doesn't make trades and all.
Then the other weeks you have a full roster and you hope that others have at least some players on a bye week.

Does it suck the first weeks for us? Yeah probably, especially teams like us who joined late and missed all the trading frenzy, when the rest of the teams who signed up early were trading some of their players for other teams' players, even if it was just equal talent/production swapping hands.

Any start-up league you're going to want to do that, no matter the sport. In my hockey leagues you don't want all players from one team. They play on different nights so you want to diversify your lineup so your players are playing on all different nights.

Again, yeah it sucks for the first few weeks, especially if you have a bye week on week 1. Other than that, get out there and trade!

Although in year 1, a decent strategy would actually just be to keep all your players and take advantage of other teams who haven't traded much and hope to catch those teams on their bye weeks for easy wins.

  • Vik: I will be back in Bush and will try to see if we can also salvage season in Armchair and send an update this week with a plan
    July 06, 2020, 11:55:19 AM
  • Vik: Also, I know it doesnt really make sense but I am considering extending BOD and you simply play with the guys you have left as it's a lost season for Fantasy regardless. Will also send PM with a potential plan shortly
    July 06, 2020, 12:50:03 PM
  • Vik: On second though almost no point for BOD unless it's just top 4 teams or something as of the freeze but probably best we just enjoy ball/hockey in real life assuming they finish it off
