⚽ EPL 2020-21 Fantasy League ⚽ ​ Poke tired of all the negativity

Recommended Posts

It is very early to make any conclusions. But negative D scores without a card seems to be a problem. 

Leeds did give up 4. But damn.

Kumerica's GK scored 4 more points than Alisson. Anybody wanna guess who he started?

Forget it, I'll just tell you. Nobody, read that again, Nobody. His dudes were doing the same thing as us today :lmao:

This is a very interesting game.  So remarkably different from the fantasy fpl game I spend so much time on.  But I like all the added stats.  I like how James Rodriguez, who dominated Spurs today, got 19 in this game, as opposed to 3 in fpl 

Solid

Yeah, this being my first time using the Fantrax app (I know the PL app like the back of my hand), I almost rage quit this league due to user experience. Also, I got so busy during the week, I tacked on my last waiver pick Friday, without even consulting/remembering the schedule. 😐

Understand

The problem you're talking about isn't something that can be solved by those nerds, @ feinblutogatortheblutarskysinnwhateverthehell

Hate to come off as a get off my lawn guy, but the old way was better. Unfortunately, Fantrax felt different (I don't use the App, but my desktop experience has declined with the latest updates.)

As for the defensive scoring, we've chose this path. I'm fine with it. Actually happy to have a new challenge to sort out.

I like the new scoring system :thumbup:

Much like @shader said, it's interesting. Way less emphasis on having a player get a start versus getting in with 20 to go and making some impact plays.

Also. @Kumerica, before the games started I wondered why you didn't have a GK starting against me and was ready to reach out. It took me 5 or 10 minutes to go through the reports to figure out that both the Man City and Man United guys you have are part of postponed fixtures. Once again, Fantrax made this hard, not the schizo rule makers of the league.

I find the new scoring to be interesting.

 

I will say, it is a little funny that @Poke_4_Life gets 71 points from two strikers in the week he plays a team with only 6 players going this week...

I find it interesting that van Aanholt outscored Ayling without touching the pitch!

What do you want me to say?

 

Ayling was part of a defense that conceded 4 goals.  Do you think he should be rewarded for that?

 

If you really think about the scoring from last year - typical players averaged 3-4 points per game.  They got 2 of those points just for showing up...

Now, points are earned, and lost, based on what the players do.  There will be a much higher variance from game-to-game, and Ayling will have better games - where he contributes more, and concedes fewer goals.

 

Despite all the changes in scoring, the fundamentals have not really changed - player who score goals/assist will continue to do well, and defenders with clean sheets and/or attacking returns will do well, and keepers with saves/clean sheets will do well.  There are some nuances to watch for - but, fundamentally its still the same game.

When David Luiz correctly scores -10 points, everyone will realize this scoring system is superior.

 I don't want any changes. 

But I am going to ##### and moan and overreact when Matchweek 1 isn't even over yet.

It's why I paid $35.

BTW - for those asking about average scores, I came across this on twitter:

 

Average: 96.0
Average Winning: 109.6
Average Losing: 82.2

Highest: 171.5
Lowest: 20

Highest Losing: 141
Lowest Winning: 53.5

 

These were last year's numbers in a competitive league.

Yeah - we are definitely not racing to the top.

I give you the edge right now to win though...you have the lead, and one more player than we do - and two of our players are questionable to start.

 

ETA - It would probably be smart of Wolves to keep Jiminez out today, so he does not get injured before he is sold...

Oh - and #### that Klich guy... that was a 13-point swing when he scored...

i honestly feel like there is no universe that exists where Havertz does not start. Podence for sure won´t play. i am concerned for both Azpilicueta and McGoldrick because Wilder always puts in the worst options at striker on any given week

Of course, he is starting against our goal keeper - so damned if he does, damned if he doesn't...

Looks like Fantrax has made changes - Richarlison now 43 Assists - 262 points.

Now I think he’s getting shortchanged one assist which I’m sure they’ll correct.

But that Diangana goal was a beauty.

I used to be on board with the new scoring system but now I hate it.

I will say - I think we should adjust the yellow card points for next year.

I am playing against Doucoure - who picked up a yellow stopping a counter attack today.  In theory it was a positive contribution to his team, but he gets hit with -3 points.  Seems a little disconnected to reward/penalty for play on the field.

@TLEF316 crushing it - 5 goals already, and its not even half time of the 2nd game of the week.  Attacking.

I love that you can now make a roster move with out having to hit a "confirm" button.

That tripped me up more than once...
