  4. The FD one finished with 258. (Probably doesn't look like a good score. But on a night with just 3 games, it was good enough to win all the double-ups, 50/50s, and the few triple-ups I put it in.) The DK one finished with 233. (This won all the double-ups, 50/50s, and triple-ups I put it in. But it did lose a contest that had 106 entries where only the top 20 cashed out.) Wish every night was like this. (Tues nt: lost all my FD entries and won all my DK entries. Would be a wash if it wasn't for the rake. And Wed nt: exact same thing happened - won all in one and lost all in the other.)
  5. No idea if anyone cares, but I will be rolling with this tonight: FD: Felton, Grant, Lee, Galloway, Melo, George, Griffin, Millsap, and Jordan DK: Felton, Grant, CJ Miles, Melo, Porzingis, Griffin, Jordan, C.Paul Liked both lineups better earlier in the day. The more I stare at them, the less I like them.
  6. Hey Assani, I remember following your poker thread years ago. Glad to see you are killing it in the DFS space. Was curious about a few things (if it is cool to ask): 1) Which DFS sites do you use the most? (FD, DK, etc?) 2) Which sports do you play? 3) And which sites do you like for help in projecting lineups for each sport? I know there are so many now. I just don't know which are considered the "reliable" ones. Thanks!!
  7. Logged on; ready to roll. Ok with starting early.
  8. Not just for you. He pulled all his posts. I had an opinion about how roster configuration based off of previous winners was not the most important thing to look at, even though it seems to be a big focus in this thread. I mentioned how the right players - finding value, potential breakout guys (like last yr's Forsett or OBJ), and strategy of when to take certain players is all important as well. He got upset with me. (You can still see it as most of it has been quoted.) Literally said that this was why he did not post more findings. I explained myself - as nicely, respectfully, and rationally as possible (you can see this too above). Even apologized (even though if you followed along I did not remotely have to) if my opinions offended him. At some point he decided to take down his posts. That's the timeline for you in a nutshell.
  9. I did not play MFLxx's last year, but my understanding is that there was a kicker roster spot that has been removed. This means that last year data is less relevant. If you took 3 kickers and 3 defenses last year, you were shooting yourself in the foot in terms of depth at the other positions. This year, you will be adding many more points to your weekly balance by adding a 3rd D in the 19th or 20th round and flexing the extra spot to a position of weakness. Great point. There were probably some who took Ks a little too early last yr - when other decent Qs/Rs/Ws/Ts were still available. Meanwhile there were probably some that got burned by waiting til the very last round (ie, guy ends up not being the true kicker of the team since it was like the 30th K drafted). Either way - that has to effect the data. (Disclaimer: Maybe it does not affect it by a ton. So let me repeat: this is NOT the most important thing.) But clearly that change does affect numerous things this yr when analyzing the data. Now you have an extra shot at a flyer or breakout candidate. Or can triple up on a D when you would not have last yr. Who knows?!
  10. I find it very interesting too (ie, roster construction type issues). All I did (and feel free to re-read it) - is say it has some merit, but perhaps might not be as important as picking the "right" players. And sure, there is some discussion on which players in other threads as you just mentioned. But that is different in standard re-draft leagues. MFL10s are best ball. You have that roster all season. There is no dropping a guy bc he stinks. In standard redraft leagues, you can drop a guy. Heck you can nab a potential sleeper a round or two early bc if it does not work out - you drop him. In MFL10s, you can't do that. You are stuck with that guy. So an interesting topic within this thread, just in my opinion, would be about the "right" players to go for. For instance, are you better off taking a swing for the fences player who can be a breakout star, but can also easily be a nothing and bust? Or are you better off taking a guy in those late rounds that does not have the potential to hit the fences, but definitely won't be a zero in the lineup. Maybe he goes for 48-650-4. Nothing terribly exciting there. And on the weeks of 0-2 receptions for 0-40 yards and no TDs, that won't make your starting lineup. But on the occasional weeks of 5-112-1 - that does make your lineup. Since this is a thread about MFL10s, I would think there should be all of that. Meaning optimal roster construction, along with "breakout" candidates, as well as some discussion on going for the HR vs the nice floor guys who should find their way into your lineup once in a while. All of that belongs in this thread. And to jump on a guy for bringing up a new MFL point in an MFL thread seems ridiculous. Yes, but you started your post off saying the analysis provided was "for the most part missing the point." If I had put in the work and then read that post, I'd probably take offense to it, too. If you wanted to move the discussion towards discussing late round strategy, you could have just started discussing late round strategy. As stated above, I don't think anyone was under the impression that MFL10 success was primarily determined by emulating last year's winning roster construction. Also, you did say people would probably jump on you for your post, and that's fine. Anyways, sorry to digress even further. If talking about roster construction is unproductive, talking about talking about roster construction is extremely unproductive. Excited to see Rd 2 get underway. 1) "For the most part missing the point." Yes, I stand by that. It is my opinion. It is formulated on all things football - having been in many MFL10s. It was not presented rudely. It was not presented in a way to pick a fight. It was not focused on any one person as several have been talking about optimal roster construction. So I expressed an opinion. Still not seeing the big deal. 2) Yes, I did say people would jump on me for it. I know how these boards work. And I have had off-board discussions with several others from these threads (including staff) that used to post a lot more bc of the recent trend over the years of "jumping" on a guy. There used to be a ton more threads and a ton more active posters. Many have noticed the "jump" on him bit even though the guy getting jumped on did not necessarily do a single thing wrong. 3) But completely agree that talking about talking about it is an even bigger waste. And I never meant for that to happen when I posted about picking players over picking strategy or a specific roster. Never.
  11. Who me? Why? I am not saying there is no value in that stuff. I am just saying I don't think it is the most important part. If me having a different opinion than you makes you not want to post, then I am confused. Isn't a message board about sharing different opinions? Sorry if I somehow offended you. Honestly did not mean to. Point me to anywhere anyone has said it's the most important part. Got it. You're a very literal guy. I am on a football message board and you are taking my words so literally that you don't want to post your findings anymore. Got it. Years and years ago I used to post in the FBG threads all the time. But there are always those guys that hate when people have a different opinion. Or pick on a single word - out of an entire post. And then jump on that guy. Never ever understood this. I personally know of a couple of FBG staff members that agree with me. They too used to post more, but there was too much jumping on a guy - when it was not even remotely deserved. I bet if you re-read my post with an open mind - you will see I did nothing to remotely deserve getting jumped on. And I did nothing that should offend you from wanting to post your findings. My apologies if I implied some believed it to be the most important part. I guess I was under that impression since there is a lot more discussion on that sort of stuff than there is on who will be the breakout guys. If for some reason that offended you, my apologies. My guess is that since there are plenty of sleeper/bust threads, as well as threads for almost every relevant player, that people feel like it would be double dipping to repost it here, and the conversation has just never naturally flowed in that direction. The 2014 NFL10 roster construction discussion is one that really only fits in this thread, and as a new MFL10 player this year, I found it very interesting. There also has been quite a bit of dissection of current rosters, which gives insight as to who people are taking late, although the discussion hasn't keyed in on that specifically. By the way, the irony of what you wrote about how this thread/conversation has just not ever naturally flowed in the direction of player talk is wrong. The very first post of the entire thread - by the guy that started the thread - was asking about a player. He was talking about Gronk as a good move with the first overall pick. Yet somehow I suggested player evaluation in an MFL is pretty important too and Bway got mad at me for it. Not making that up or starting anything. It's all right there above this.

  14. And this is why I leave the board for months and months at a time. I never understood people getting offended over someone else having a different opinion. Did I make fun of your findings? No. Did I even acknowledge that it has some merit? Yes. I put an opinion out there. I explained it. Politely and respectfully. I then explained it some more. So I have no clue what I did wrong here.
