This is my first time in this contest. At first glance I found it hard to get players I want under the salary cap and still select at least 18 players. Interesting format.

You have no idea what you're in for, do you? Your next obsession has begun.

So what's the obsession over? Is it second guessing your picks each day up until you finally submit the team? I guessing it's that since once the season starts you basically just sit back and pray your team does well. Am I close?

It is submitting your team today changing it 5 times today and as camp goes on changing it again multiple times a day. It is playing with the players and trying to figure out if it is better odds for 18 people or 30 people or where in between. It is figuring out how many WRs is best and at what price grouping and RBs, QBs... It is making sure you make it through the first few weeks if you take Bell or Brady.

Submitted garbage entry in the hope of getting a low entry number :)

So we can submit our team now and change it as many times as we want before the first game?

There is an immense amount of strategy that goes into winning this thing. It's been debated ad naseum over the years and often threads have carried over for pages and pages in the Shark Pool. Clearly you have to ultimately end up with players that perform well. But by the end game, the issue will be that many teams have the same players, so it's like playing Texas Hold 'em where the community cards help everybody.

The sad thing is, if I did happen to do well I can't win anything since I'm one of the lucky few who live in Iowa. Stupid gambling laws.

And yeah, you can change your entry as many times as possible before they close out entries at whatever time it says on the rules.

Generally the low-hanging fruit doesn't reveal itself until later on in the month.

On first blush, not as much low hanging fruit as compared to other years. Will have to absorb more later.

yes, but I recall the exact same thought last year. Then KB came to play...

Ties in all rounds prior to the 250 cutoff will advance. For final standings, tiebreakers will be used for exact two week totals.

That should be three, right?

I had 3 at first, will definitely have one (barring injury).

I'm betting the most commonly owned player isn't on the above list.

Often fun to see the small changes in the fine print :)

this will be my first year participating. just filled out my lineup for fun. didn't even think to include more than 1 PK or D, but based on reading some posts in this topic, maybe its smart to have more than 1?

Ya, I prefer 3 over 2.... but you at least need 2 IMO

Yeah, once the bigger cutdown weeks start happening, 2-3 points could make the difference between advancing and not.

You need minimum of 2 IMO, just to account for bye weeks.

I made some notes last year after browsing some teams that did really well. TBD whether that does me a bit of good this year.

Make sure you leave some money left over to pick up some players mid contest in case one of your studs goes down early.

I didn't think you could make any adjustments to your team once the season starts.
