  1. Searched quickly, but didn't see this covered elsewhere- Read about some buffering issues with Sling even with upgraded higher level internet. Any insight? True or exaggerated?
  2. There are a few teams available in the Backyard Brawl leagues this year. Backyard Brawl has five different leagues from guys here at FBG and some of the writers over at DLF. Some FBG members include: EBF Bloom broncofan13000 wdcrob gianmarco ...with many others who I cannot recall their FBG name off the top of my head. Feel free to PM them for some insight into the league. Essentially, each season there are two drafts... a rookie draft with the rookies for the current year that have been drafted and a one round draft of college players (developmental draft). The league is a 14-team PPR with a great group of guys in each league. Basic starting lineup requirements: QB, 2 RB, 2 WR/TE, 2 RB/WR/TE, D Fee is $110/year. I'm looking for an active owner who checks in every day during the season and every few days in the offseason. If that's not you, this league may not be for you. Here are the openings: 1. Backyard Brawl III: 1.5 PPR for TEs (no TE req) and 1 additional WR spot required in starting lineup Team Roster Rules Team has 1.08 rookie and 1.08 devy pick, but is missing ther 2.08 rookie (and 2018 2nd), which are equivalent to thirds given the devy draft. 2. Backyard Brawl IV: 1.5 PPR for TEs (no TE req) Team Roster Rules Team traded its 1.12 rookie and 1.12 devy and paid its deposit for 2017, as a result. However, the owner feels the team is in solid condition and would like a deposit refund (i.e., the new owner would pay the full fee). If not, the owner plans to return for one more year and play the season out as opposed to 'forfetting' his deposit. 3. Backyard Brawl V: 1.5 PPR for TEs (no TE req) Team has 1.08 rookie and 1.08 devy pick, along with rest of its picks. Team Roster Rules 4. Backyard Brawl IDP Different lineup requirements from non-IDP formats see link below for details, but CB/DT req and premium scoring. Significant IDP impact overall. Fee is 100/yr. Team Roster Rules I'm hoping to fill these teams quickly so we can begin drafting on time in late April and so new owners have some time to get settled in the league and make some deals, if they'd like. Any questions or if you're interested, please let me know.
  3. BUMP Have 14 as we speak. Targeting 20! LMK if interested or have questions. PM, if easier.
  4. $50 buy-in & 100% payout. Details can be found on site: http://www79.myfantasyleague.com/2016/mb/topic_show.pl?bid=201622829&tid=4902444 Each team selects 34 players for entire playoffs - any player in playoffs can be rostered. You keep this roster through the Super Bowl. Each week, you need to field a max of 18 starters as follows: 1 QB 2 RB 2 WR 1 TE 2 Offensive Flex (RB/WR/TE) 2 DL 2 LB 2 CB 2 S 1 Defensive Flex Any questions, let me know. Also, I can provide references, if needed, as I've been running six dynasty leagues dating back to 2004.
  5. I'd add that these BB leagues have been in existence dating back to 2004. So, we have long standing history across these leagues.

I'm hoping to fill this team this week so we can run our rookie draft as scheduled beginning on Saturday. Any questions or if you're interested, please let me know.
  7. Bump We're now at 14, would like to at least hit 20....
  8. 12 entered. Targeting 8 more.
  9. Bump Got a solid group already. Need 10-12 more.
  10. After a 3-year hiatus, I'm bringing back the Backyard Brawl Playoff IDP league. $50 per entry and 100% payout - http://www25.myfantasyleague.com/2015/home/52170#0 Each team will select 34 total players for ALL OF THE PLAYOFFS. In other words, after kickoff of the first game, waivers are CLOSED for the contest. It's possible for one NFL player could be on all teams in this league and you're not required to submit a full lineup during any week. Starting with kickoff of the first playoff game on Saturday 1/9, all waivers will lock. Each week, you'll need to work to field a max of 18 starters (optional to fill the max) filling the following starting lineup: 1 QB 2 RB 2 WR 1 TE 2 Offense Flex (RB, WR, TE) 1 K 2 DL 2 LB 2 CB 2 S 1 Defense Flex For background, I commish 5 dynasty leagues (Backyard Brawl) and have since 2004. I can provide references from those leagues upon request. Most owners are from here at footballguys, as well as DLF writers, including: jeter23 EBF Bloom broncofan13000 wdcrob gianmarco Rockchild Romulan JohnW1970 Hoping to get ~20 owners. Post here or PM if interested.
  11. Rules state the start for the Championship Round is average points from the 'regular season'. Does this include the last two weeks (i.e., league playoffs)? I'm assuming 'regular season' means prior to the individual league playoffs, but don't recall from last year.
  12. This was a rookie mistake - when debating between two guys, take the guy at higher ADP. Landry is going ten spots before Robinson, on average. If you had taken Landry, Robinson may have been there your next pick. Wilson in the 6th is a little early; I got him at 8.11 in a FFPC draft last night. If you were looking for upside, Helu in the 12th is not a good pick. He is nothing but a 3rd down back. Same goes for Woodhead in the 7th; decent value if he catches 70 balls but that's a huge IF, and otherwise a wasted pick because he's never going to see early down work. Your WRs and a healthy Kelce will keep you in contention every week and that's a good thing. To clarify on the Robinson pick, what had me lean Robinson was his higher TD potential (not much competition) and the potential for Parker to steal some of Landry's RZ looks towards the end of the year. So, went with Robinson first with the hope for Landry to come back as my #4 WR. The guy on the turn went WR/WR, so I wasn't getting both regardless of who I went with. In hindsight, though, I prefer the PPR consistency of Landry to any potential TD variance. The Helu pick - it's a clear handcuff for Murray. I selected him early because of it. Otherwise, frankly, he wouldn't be on my radar through 20. Woodhead, I disagree. He's more than a 3rd down back and with Gordon's early struggles, he's set for more snaps. He also gets more RZ carries than many suspect. I believe he's a strong play for a RB2 finish.
