I have some good news about Calcomatic.com - I was able to get the MFL data to work!!!!!!    Big props to @Alberta Clipper for doing all the leg work/research/setup on the MFL side of things! How

I went through this thread and counted 67 entries to make @Joe Bryant noon ET cut off.  Here they are, by page number of this thread: 1 - @dbc925 2 - @-OZ-  @Milkman  @Stray Doug  @barackdhouse

Started the week with 32 left from Joe's extra contest.  Here is how they finished the week (cut was 121.15)... @BroadwayG  173.80 @Go DC Yourself  165.45 @Kujjie  161.25 @themeanmachine  160.75

I don't remember seeing numbers of entries by team size, so here goes...

18 - 2992 (29%)
19 - 1381 (14%)
20 - 1193 (12%)
21 - 943 (9%)
22 - 882 (9%)
23 - 732 (7%)
24 - 555 (5%)
25 - 412 (4%)
26 - 332 (3%)
27 - 266 (3%)
28 - 171 (2%)
29 - 141 (1%)
30 - 226 (2%)

feel like that this more of a slight reversion to smallwr stud roosters compared to the last couple of years, though still not nearly as pronounced as the early flex years.

RB Snell 4

RB M Brown 4

RB Gore 3

WR M Thomas 33

WR T Hill 31

WR T McLaurin 20

WR B Edwards 3

WR M Valdes-Scandling 3

TE T Kelce 30

TE J Akins 3

PK S Gostkowski 2

PK S Sloman 2

DEF Arizona 2

DEF Las Vegas 2

Will track this concept for fun :)

What's your trio of gg low% guys that could make a big difference for your team?

For me it's Chubb/K Allen/Goedert - 2 owners have this trio (they ave 6% each owned)

I am one of only 2 teams with QB Wilson, RB Chubb, WR Thielen, TE Waller, and D Steelers

We also have Gibson SEA D & P Williams in common

I expected far fewer ultra low number teams due to covid worries.  Interesting that there are so many.

Look for high K turnover this year as teams are keeping backups on their expanded practice squads...

Cleveland Browns PK Austin Seibert was waived Monday, Sept. 14. PK Cody Parkey was elevated from the practice squad to take his place on the roster.

Whoa.  Man, I should have rostered Bullock - my Bengals will never ever ever get rid of him :(

Kyler, Robby Anderson, Aaron Jones - only 2 entries have this combo :cool:

Swap AJ Brown for Aaron Jones and you get...the same 2 roosters.  Mine has 27 guys the other one has 18.

That was a common perception expressed in the thread before the lock.

While its hard to know the real numbers, I'd guess the NFL will see far less of an infection rate then the gen pop.

Anyway, I did not try to model relative risk between players, nor aggregate risk as it relates to roster inflation, or prediction of games played less than 16.  Ignored it all.

End of season diagnostics is the only way we'll know if roster inflation due to covid was a valid strategy.

How much time would it take to manually populate a DB with every team roster in it? If you had that then all you need is a copy and paste snapshot of box scores. It wouldn't be a live feed but it would be just as good. The problem is populating 10000 rows of data. 

I used to be the Geospatial Team Lead for a government remote sensing laboratory. It was largely a production shop where we churned out ridiculous amounts of digital widgets, each one largely the same as the one before. Ok there was a ton more nuance than that but point is I bet 10000 rows of rosters wouldn't take as long as you think. You just have to put on some good tunes. 

ETA to be clear I'm saying this populating would only need to be done once. If people are willing to kick in I'd do the work. My proof of concept needed first of course.

I have already created an excel spreadsheet with all 333 players offered in the contest.  I am willing to do some grunt work.

oh yeah Gostkowski is cooked. Unbelievable.  I think I have more faith in Randy Bullock at this point.

All my research on cheap kickers going down the drain.  Job 1 in this contest is to keep your job.

Well he did make the last one that counted.  With his career resume I think it buys him next week (but only next week).

Hint?  I'm stumped... and have gone through everything from where they played college, team colour/mascot in college/NFL, common letters in their names or jersey numbers, where they were drafted, etc.  Help!
