If no salary cap, how do FF players adjust? (1 Viewer)

The other thread is interesting for its football talk, but honestly, what happens if there is no salary cap? How does that affect what we do?

I've searched, don't think this is a Honda, but I haven't been here in a while, because I've been hesitant to come here since the SB.

Anyway, here's some possible changes to what we do:

1. Talent surrounding certain players could increase dramatically. Some teams could build EXTREMELY good supporting casts for QBs, RBs, etc, and then, mediocre running backs could turn into studs FF-wise.

2. The other way around: Very good players on poor-revenue teams could severely suffer, as the talent level around them decreases.

I think everything we look at now would be the same...but the effect would be multiplied severely.

Anything else?

 
it'll still be all about opportunity
Of course. But obviously, some things will change, too. What are those things?
Not sure I know what ya mean but I'll take a swing at bat.Suppoing there's a team with Peyton, Owens, Moss, and Shaun. I would think Peyton is a sweet pick most weeks with those WRs. They're always gonna be ahead so Shaun is the perfect pick to get use normally and when they're winding the clock down. Owens and Moss however, there's not enough balls to go around. I'd bet one guy does great one week, one the next.

Cruddy team of McCown, Cedric Houston, Plax, and someyoungguy

Houston becomes useless as they abandon the run after the first 2 minutes. McCown throws for a zillion yards(and INTs) attempting to match firepower and then to comeback. Plax is the recipient of much of those so he's a gem and the youngster WR is the "sleeper talk" during the summer.

Same stuff just different who is ranked where, that's my guess

I mean...if the NFL goes to an open market system, how does that influence fantasy football?

With teams like Washington able to load up on great players, does that mean mediocre players on Washington become good FF players?

Stuff like that.

I dont think so. IIRC there is not that many UFA next year that will be able to make a huge impact. And from what gibberish I have been able to decipher from the talks on the CBA it is an uncapped year, but a player can only recieve a 30% raise. If we enter a cap year 2007 is not the year I look at, but 2008 and beyond. The Players Union has been extremely adamant about the fact that if we enter an uncapped year, that they will never agree to reinstating the cap.

So back to your orginal point I would say that 2008, 2009 is when you will see 3rd and 4th tier players on teams like WAS DAL NYJ NYG etc.. getting a huge upgrade as the cast around them improves.
