  1. This is totally inaccurate. Many teams will make it to the SB and have absolutely a zero % of winning. I did that the first year I played. I was so stoked to make it through the first 3 rounds, and was completely deflated when I saw my 4 guys were up against about 100 teams ALL with more players from the two SB teams... This contest is a lot like a No Limit Hold 'Em tournament. If you play super conservative and get past the first break, you'll likely get booted by the blinds because you didn't take chances to build a big enough stack. Similarly, in this contest you have to plant your fla
  2. You know what they say: reading is FUN-damental...
  3. I truly didn't think the extra two games in the first round were going to make that much of a difference, but they obviously did. It was kinda a perfect storm of crazy different pricing of the elite-level guys (from my perspective, they are priced REALLY high compared to 2nd tier guys), the extra two games, and the higher participation rate. I think the roster that wins this year will have a surprisingly low number of SB players rostered.
  4. I was way below the cutoff. Oh well, try again next year, lol...
  5. Currently at 70.65 with Latavius Murray, Tre'Quan Smith, and Dez Bryant today...I'm confident I'll move on, but you never know...
  6. For what it's worth, here's my roster. I went with my first draft unchanged, lol: QB - Patrick Mahomes - KC - $39 QB - Tom Brady - TB - $28 RB - Devin Singletary - BUF - $16 RB - Latavius Murray - NO - $13 RB - Leonard Fournette - TB - $11 RB - Darrel Williams - KC - $4 WR - Tyreek Hill - KC - $29 WR - Mike Evans - TB - $20 WR - Cole Beasley - BUF - $15 WR - TreQuan Smith - NO - $4 WR - Dez Bryant - BAL - $3 TE - Travis Kelce - KC - $34 TE - Rob Gronkowski - TB - $14 PK - Harrison Butker - KC - $10 PK - Ryan Succop - TB - $10
  7. I think my point holds given the data: You can safely assume that if you put together any kind of legit roster, you'll escape week 1 without question. I would build my roster based on the assumption you will make it out of week 1 no matter what you do.
  8. I guess what I don't understand is why having a free week in week 1 makes this an issue. I don't think it changes your strategy at all. If what you're asking is if there are 10,000 entrants then you REALLY need to score to escape week 1, but if there are only 3,500 entrants you don't even need to worry about week 1. I think the safe answer is that the latter (3,500 entrants) is more likely than the former (10,000 entrants) and build your lineup accordingly.
  9. I don't understand this comment at all. Unless you are picking the Super Bowl to be KCC vs. GBP, you have to take a bunch of dudes playing in the first week (since your SB team will be one of them at least). If you were thinking of taking ONLY KCC and GBP (which is pretty much the only reason you would want to know if you got a week 1 BYE because there aren't enough players), you won't even make it out of week 2. This year's playoff format, with only 2 teams on a BYE week 1, essentially means the following: You still need to guess which 6 teams are going to week 2 and pick players from th
  10. Are you saying you have 62 players? I'm not sure I follow your format here, lol... yes, you are saying that. You simply took all the cheapest players. gotcha...Very funny...I'm assuming you won't keep it, but it would be fun to see how that lineup fared...
  11. You are all forgetting that there were 4 BYEs last year, and there are only 2 this year. If you think the SB will be KCC vs. GBP then, yeah, I guess it would matter. Otherwise it will not... Last year was a total fluke, I think, and although I am 100% in favor of the cutoffs being a percentage pf the entries, doesn't change the fact that comparing last year to this year is nearly impossible and likely totally irrelevant. The much bigger problem is that the pricing of the elite-level guys is crazy off the charts. This year's winner will be the person(s) that accidentally guess(
  12. First pass. Like the regular season contest, the pricing for the elite-level guys is off the chart: QB - Patrick Mahomes - KC - $39 QB - Tom Brady - TB - $28 RB - Devin Singletary - BUF - $16 RB - Latavius Murray - NO - $13 RB - Leonard Fournette - TB - $11 RB - Darrel Williams - KC - $4 WR - Tyreek Hill - KC - $29 WR - Mike Evans - TB - $20 WR - Cole Beasley - BUF - $15 WR - TreQuan Smith - NO - $4 WR - Dez Bryant - BAL - $3 TE - Travis Kelce - KC - $34 TE - Rob Gronkowski - TB - $14 PK - Harrison Butker - KC - $10 PK - Ryan Succop - TB - $10
  13. I'm taking a flyer on one of the two available NE TEs tonight, but who would you suggest: newly reactivated Asiasi or Keene?
  14. Just went in and tried to quick replace Carr at QB...didn't seem to work?? 🤣
