  1. using the clone scenario, the best football player is Usain Bolt.
  2. Getting ready to enjoy a few games tonite - pulling for IND in the first, and really pulling for DAL in the late game, as they are my NFC pick for the SB. Running with Mack & Vinatieri, and Conley & Darrel Williams in game 1, with a bunch of Cowboys and no Rams in game 2.
  3. Obviously your best hope to win it all now hinges on IND beating KC, NE beating LAC, and DAL beating LAR. The NO/PHI game is unimportant to you, but you should be rooting for PHI, so DAL can get home field the following week. If all that happens, you are solid.
  4. Who were the players you chose that weren't on NE or DAL?
  5. Smaller rosters make for more awesome players that will take you to the end. In the last 3 years, 18-player rosters have won it all twice. Why waste your $$ on scrubs who are just bench fodder? The only players that matter each week are 1QB, 2RB, 2WR, 1TE, 2Flex, 1K, and 1D, so why have 30 guys on your roster?
  6. I remembered you wanted to keep larger rosters a secret, and was waiting for your reply. I will post random crap in this thread until the stats above get buried before next season.
  7. Correct, Sir. I expect more larger submissions as the years progress, but am hoping for more smaller rosters. Hopefully many people see that 2018's winner only had 18, and don't actually look at the results and realize that 1 RB, who had an overall disappointing season, was the key to his win. For me, I will stick to larger rosters.
  8. Agreed 100% You can still win by loading up on your 2 SB picks, as evidenced by the last 6 winners of this contest. They have spent a combined 73% of their budget on just 2 teams, and still managed to make it to the end. You just have to pick players from the other teams wisely, so you can squeak by until the SB.
  9. Wrong. In 2018, here were the number of submissions for each roster size: 18 (4051), 19 (1741), 20 (1390), 21 (1189), 22 (1104), 23 (1008), 24 (895), 25 (785), 26 (670), 27 (562), 28 (470), 29 (440), 30 (810) That's a total of 8371 small, 4462 medium, and 2282 large The top 10 were 18, 18, 20 (3 small), 22, 23, 24, 24 (4 medium), 27, 27, 30 (3 large) So, when you consider there were nearly 4 times as many small submissions as large ones, yet large submissions kept pace, it favors large submissions. Take a minute to digest this... Out of the 15,115 submissions, 4051 were 18-player rosters. That was 27% of all submissions.
  10. Looks like Steeler has added the remaining players to calcomatic, thank you!
  11. I'm shooting for an all-upset weekend - IND over KC, PHI over NO, DAL over LAR, and LAC over NE
  12. Decided to dig back the last 5 years and answer this for you. It's the least I can do for your time with the calcomatic! Top 10 finishers, with amounts of players: 2018 - 18, 22, 23, 27, 30, 27, 20, 18, 24, 24 - average is 23.3 (3 QB's, 6.4 RB's, 6.2 WR's, 2.8 TE's, 2.6 K's, and 2.4 D's) 2017 - 23, 23, 30, 20, 22, 25, 21, 30, 23, 25 - average is 24.2 (2.7 QB's, 6.6 RB's, 7 WR's, 2.8 TE's, 2.5 K's, and 2.6 D's) 2016 - 18, 28, 21, 20, 25, 25, 23, 21, 27, 30 - average is 23.8 (3 QB's, 6.2 RB's, 6.8 WR's, 3.1 TE's, 2.3 K's, and 2.4 D's) 2015 - 28, 26, 29, 27, 24, 30, 24, 29, 20, 28 - average is 26.5 (3.7 QB's, 6.1 RB's, 7.3 WR's, 4 TE's, 2.6 K's, and 2.8 D's) 2014 - 24, 27, 18, 24, 22, 18, 20, 21, 20, 20 - average is 21.4 (2.5 QB's, 5.1 RB's, 6.9 WR's, 2.8 TE's, 2 K's, and 2.1 D's) Overall 5 yr average is 23.8 (3 QB's, 6.1 RB's, 6.8 WR's, 3.1 TE's, 2.4 K's, and 2.5 D's) Observations - If you consider 18-21 small, 22-26 medium, and 27-30 large, it's very even (16 small, 19 medium, and 15 large) - 2014 & 2015 were the extremes; the last 3 years have been very even - In the last 3 years, 3 teams had 18, 4 teams had 30 - In the last 3 years, every team had 2-4 QB's - In the last 3 years, every team but 1 had 2-4 TE's (the 1 outlier had 5, and a 30-player roster) - In the last 3 years, every team but 1 had 2-3 K's (the 1 outlier had 4, and a 27-player roster) - In the last 3 years, every team but 1 had 2-3 D's (the 1 outlier had 4, and a 30-player roster) Final thought - Since smaller rosters are way more common than larger rosters, the math says larger rosters are the way to go, and can have the firepower to take it all. Once again, thanx for all you do with the calcomatic, Steeler.
  13. Solid team. Many submissions that went all in on KC/NO won't make it til the end, but you have a shot. In hindsight, you may have had some RB's, but getting to week 2 was job 1.
