  1. BUMP Have 14 as we speak. Targeting 20! LMK if interested or have questions. PM, if easier.
  2. $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.
  3. I'd add that these BB leagues have been in existence dating back to 2004. So, we have long standing history across these leagues.
  4. There is one team available in the Backyard Brawl leagues. Backyard Brawl has five different leagues from guys here at FBG and some of the writers over at DLF. Some FBG members include: jeter23 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. 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 is the opening: Backyard Brawl IV: 1.5 PPR for TEs Team Roster Rules Team has 1.06 rookie and 1.06 devy pick. 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.
  5. Bump We're now at 14, would like to at least hit 20....
  6. 12 entered. Targeting 8 more.
  7. Bump Got a solid group already. Need 10-12 more.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Not necessarily looking for input, just more informational as I find it interesting to see roster construction from each draft spot and I imagine others do too. From the 11 spot this past Sunday. Went WR/TE heavy with upside/value at RB with hopes of a breakout from one of the handful. Overall I'm happy with my squad, just need a few hits: QB: R.Wilson (6), Kaepernick (14) RB: L.Murray (4), D.Woodhead (7), Crowell (8), A.Blue (11), R.Helu (12), McKinnon (15), D.Lewis (16), K.Williams (18) WR: D.Thomas (1), Calvin Johnson (2), A.Robinson (5), K.Wright (10), Shorts (20) TE: T.Kelce (3), D.Allen (9), L.Green (13) K: McManus (17) D: NYJ (19) Regrets: - Taking Robinson over Landry in the 5th. Was originally hoping to grab Robinson and get Landry after the turn. I missed. Landy should be $$ in PPR this year and have a feeling I'll be kicking myself. - Not going ASJ over Allen. Hoped to grab Allen in 9th and get ASJ, Donnell or R.Rodgers on return trip for flex options.
  12. Go to the 'Abilities' section, it's a radio button selection on the bottom below the table with all team's abilities.
  13. Nobody on the Footballguys staff does that kind of thing. There are a few people on staff who make a lot of money playing DFS. (Way more than they could ever hope to make writing about it.) Some of them might not want to publish their GPP lineups, for example -- so they simply won't publish them. They would never publish a fake lineup in its place while keeping their real lineup to themselves. Whatever we publish is our best stuff. knowing who is on staff, that's not a surprise as that's exactly how it should be done. Didn't see the same of certain on RG in the past.
