    Looks like this week's match against Koncept will go down to the wire. If I can move to 6-1 I'll feel pretty damn good about that considering my team is mostly comprised of a bunch dudes who are barely old enough to drink in the States.

    Well on the bright side you can take advantage of your other three spots starting now.

    When your guy is out with an injury and you can't move him to IR to pick up the missed game:

    Damn. Close battle with Mr. S Walker. Pulled out with 2 points more, it was a battle to the end. He had the lead on me all week.

    Sitting top at 8-1, folks. I’m feeling pretty.

    So how does everyone find the league so far?


    Next season I'm going to open up the playoffs to at least eight spots. The four team playoffs is my only gripe and it wasn't meant to be that way and it won't for certain next season.

    Enjoy it, but find it too simple. Would like to work on some awards as motivation for next year. Best trade, manager of the year, best draft etc. Give some reasons for playermovement

    It is simple and that was by design and I hope its a solid foundation to build on and your ideas here are a prime example of some things we should explore to add to the richness of the league. I love awards, especially award decided by the whole league.

    An idea I had was what if we added a sub-game to the league where we had an elimination tournament ongoing throughout the season where we all after to pick one winner each week of a
    matchup in our league and we cannot pick the same team twice. If you pick wrong, you're eliminated from the sub-game. The winner of the sub-game(if there is one by season end) gets a bonus $_____FAAB budget that either counts for the current season or the next season(post-draft).

    Honestly, this league is a bit meh.

    I understand the theory behind the low effort during the season but it also means low engagement. If I donít have to even set my line ups, what is there to do? Check the waiver wire? With this many people itís a wasteland most of the time.

    Not really much strategy post draft and no amount of gimmicks (awards, side bets, etc) will change that.

    The draft was epic but the season has been a stark contrast to that. It might be more appealing to non-dynasty people but to me, it was a great draft and then a let down.

    Thanks for the input. This is season #1 of this scoring format and it was a big experiment in a lot of ways. I'd like to see it continue and improve and so we'll have lots of discussions in the off-season on how to improve the experience. I don't think it'll ever be a beast like Dynasty though. If the majority of people generally feel it's not engaging enough then it'll change to more traditional lineups or something not identified yet. Pretty much everything is on the table except for scoring.

    I really only check in once or twice a week to see if I have injuries. I'd like it if it was a more active league, not sure what could change that?

    Maybe having a traditional lineup mandatory(PG, SG, SF, PF, C)? Then what comes after that though, 5 UTIL position players? Maybe have 2 players from each position in your lineup?

    If we go back to traditional lineups, plus flex then it might be just as well to go back to traditional benches as well.

    We could have update daily, where you can update whenever as long as the game hasn't begun. We could roll with update weekly where you're locked in every week. This would bring with it a lot of strategy because do you start Bron with two games on tap or Zach Lavine with four? Might be interesting.
