I already lost a stupid kicker.

My 5 defenses managed a top score of 4 points.

:bag:

D's had a bad week overall.  Only 2 scored in double digits (Saints w/15 and WAS w/14).  Only 11 D's scored more than 4 points, and the weekly average was only 4.375.  Heck, you could've spent $50 on a combo of SF, CHI, PHI, MIN, TB, DEN, LAR, IND, GB, DAL, CLE, TEN, and HOU and still ended up with the same 4 points.

I'd be more bummed about my stupid kicker

If either of those can provide a usable feed (both have free trials) perhaps we could take up a collection to cover the cost, or petition FBG to help us out?

Late to the party but I suspect these guys were just scraping NFL.com and reselling the data so they probably don't work anymore if NFL changed the way their site works.

I misread the contest rules and thought Saquon would get extra points for leaping over people. 

He was trying everything he could, but that PIT D was just not letting him go anywhere.  He did eke out some points with dumpoffs though.

To select only 4 WR's takes nards, and then to use all 4 of their scores is pretty impressive.

Well, I picked great ones...hahahaa

 

I actually crafted my team awhile ago and never got a chance to go back in.  I actually didn't realize that I only had 4 WR's.   Hopefully they stay healthy and productive.

There only would've been a cutoff if there were ~3300 more entries, so no.  

Lucky for me. I sucked. Brees meh; Saquon meh; Terry McLaurin, meh.  My best score was from Crowder and my best RB was a guy I took thinking he might show up later in the season, Joshua Kelley.

The bottom 4 teams have 15-20 QBs so I am guessing they did not understand the rules of the contest. 

The funny part (sorry to this person) is the 5th from the bottom. He has a legitimate team with some good players, but only his QBs did much. He had 96 points and his top RB is out. 

I am not trying to be mean, but that is normally how my luck goes.

I contacted both sites.  I really don't think this endeavor qualifies for the free version on mysportsfeed but we'll see I guess.  profootballapi at $20 per month seems reasonable and it only has a 1 minute delay in making the data available through their service.  I'll keep you guys posted.

It doesn't look good so far guys.  Neither of these companies has returned my email.  I sent a second email to both sites so let's hope they respond.  I'm not signing up/paying either of them if this is an example of their customer service.

Still nothing from either of these sites which is a big read flag - a potential customer contacts you twice and no response.  If neither of these promising leads work out, could we do some sort of crowd sourcing?  Not sure what that would look like.  I haven't used MFL in a long time - could that be used somehow to create a league where we could get the player stats?  Ideally it would be all the players in the FBG contest on one MFL screen so the data could easily be pulled from one place.  Trying to think out side the box here.

32-team league where each team coincidentally is all the players in the contest by NFL team? ;)

I think the MFL live scoring API would work if you set up a best ball league for free and set the rosters deep enough to get all the contest players on teams. Would need mapping between the MFL playerid and the contest player.

 

An alternative, the MFL gamecenter pages look like they're simple as far as page content, just a bunch of html tables, no fancy dancy realtime javascript updating.

There is only 1 entry with all 10 of the most common players

Not my fault people think I am popular.  😎

Also, I would officially like to donate the special $100 bonus to the Steeler calcomatic fund if the entry makes it that far. Won’t help this season but it’ll make a nice dent next year.  Already have a lifetime FBG membership too.  Tapping out of the bonus 😆

I use MFL api for pulling rosters, free agents, etc. from my leagues into google sheets. 

I asked last week if anyone is already in a MFL league with same/similar scoring to this. 

I'm in a lot of leagues but none with 6 pass TD.

If someone does please point me to the MFL leaggue and I'll try to help. thanks

I'm assuming if I could get the data into a gsheet table each week that somone could link/import it into the live scoring app?

I appreciate the offer but I would rather pull the data directly from MFL if possible so there is no manual intervention each week.  Also, no need for a similar scoring system because I'm already applying the FBG Contest scoring to the raw stats.  Since you are familiar with MFL API, is there an endpoint for pulling live data for all players?

Is there a cut this week, and if there is, why won’t I make it?  

Cutting down to 10K this week.  Last week the team in 10,000th place scored 126.30.  Most of those below the cut the first time we have cuts will be gimmick teams, but there will be some with legit entries.  Here is my pick for the lowest team in week 2

How much does an MFL league cost?  There is a free trial for the first 4 weeks of the season but I don't want to start down that path unless I know the total cost before starting... can't find it on MFL site.

MFL league at this point in the season is ~$90.  If I get this thing going people are going to send donations, right :)

Link to set up a free league.

No live API for every single player, it only provides players on rosters.

I'm setting up one of those draft only leagues for testing (free).

It allows up to 100 teams but I don't see the option to have multiple players per team.

Instead I'm setting it up as groups by pos (QB1 QB2 RB1 RB2 RB3, etc.) for each 'franchise'

Thinking this would allow me to pull live scoring data but will see.

If we were to go for the paid option on MFL then we could configure actual entries for live scoring (not sure the limit of teams). Cost would likely be <$90 that someone posted. 

Would be easy enough to setup on leaguesafe for small donation to get MFL fees covered.
