I think the main purpose of superflex rather than 2 QB is mostly so you can fill in something if you've got injured/bye QBs, but rarely would another player be preferable to starting a 2nd QB.

We could definitely try TE-premium too - why not.

Oh right, good point. Wouldn't want to be forced into the agonizing decision of whether to go balls out on the wire bidding for Blaine Gabbert or CJ Beathard.

Well it would appear that there's no more sitting of Goff this year, so if anyone wants Russell Wilson, make me an offer.

Oh man, I got 2nd to last score last week and played the guy in last place. Usually it works the other way, where I'm 2nd in score and play the best score that week. Feels good. 4-0.

I think we need to make this league deeper - there are always guys that seem too valuable on the waiver wire and I don't even pick them up since my roster is fairly stacked. Superflex (2 QB) would be a good start but maybe even another position other than that. We could maybe become more interesting by allowing an even greater number of flex spots - a lot of W/R slots that would let people build their team however they wanted in combination with the superflex spots, I'm not sure. But we've become stale over the years so I think next year we should definitely look to spice things up.

I agree. I'd like to keep things going but, at the same, time don't want it to be just another "set it and forget it" league. I'm down for whatever. I like the superflex idea.

Did any of you read Matthew Berry's (http://www.espn.com/fantasy/football...s-busts-week-6) article this week describing the "Vampire" league? Interesting premise. Would certainly shake things up a bit.

That does sound interesting.

One point regarding the logistics of it: Because yahoo requires an even number of players for a live draft, the vampire would participate in the draft but only choose the scrubbiest of scrubs that nobody would actually draft. Guys like rookies drafted in the 7th round. Pre-rankings should be sufficient that the vampire wouldn't even have to show up at the draft.

Yeah, the logistics (and rules) would have to be hammered out but it did sound pretty cool. Certainly a novel approach to the game and, as he points out in the article, a whole nother level of strategy.

In my big money IRL league, we could have had something close to this. We travel to a new city each year for the live draft (party) and we're not very forgiving of people not showing up, normally this means you forfeit your spot in the league and we replace you. This year a guy had his kids 1st birthday party (we gave him a pass last year for he birth) and instead of replacing him we had another friend who knows nothing about sports and happened to be in our draft city that weekend do his draft. The results were somewhat hilarious, all his draft picks had a name that could be a juvenile joke. His 1st and 2nd round picks we Jake Butt and Nick Chubb....things devolved from there and he ended up with a lot of Johnsons on his team.

Now we had normal waiver wire rules and obviously teams he matched up against started their best players. It's also a 12 team league and due to some odd roster rules that mandate backups at every position, our waiver wire is actually probably kinda similar to what a vampire leagues would look like. Here's what would have happened in our league.

Week 1, he lost in a closer game than he should have. His RBs at this point were Wilkins, Powell, Kerryon Johnson and Duke Johnson. His top point getter was Big Ben at a dismal 11.

In Week 2, he squeaked out his only win 93-92. He also probably would have been starting Breida for his one monster game, making that an easy win. He almost certainly would have swapped Josh Doctson for Julio Jones, his team just got a lot better.

In Week 3 he lost a close one, 96-91. But with Julio Jones, that flips to a win for sure since Doctson put up a 0 and Jones had 10. He would have had a choice of swapping Powell (or Brieda if he'd started him instead) for one of Howard, Hunt or Lynch or Kelvin Benjamin for Tyreek Hill. His depth is better at RB than at WR so I'd probably take Hill here.

In Week 4 he lost by 22, but Hill and Julio combined for 30 points. Still, he'd have benched Benjamin and Fuller (13 points) and still come up just short.

In Week 5 he lost by 29 (91-60, he actually has had quite a bit of schedule luck) and Breida, Hill and Julio wouldn't have made the difference.

This week, he's leading 68-61 and with the Packers D left to go against Kittle, I'll call that a W. Big weeks from Julio and Hill would make it almost certain and he's got the choice to steal either David Johnson, Shady McCoy, Andrew Luck, AJ Green or Jarvis Landry. Safe bet he swaps Duke Johnson for David Johnson and now he's got a good, but not terrifying team after 6 weeks.

He has a gaping hole at TE and at QB he's dependent on Big Ben/Bortles every week, but he's got a core 4 of Tyreek, Julio, DJ and Kerryon Johnson. He's also 3-3 and facing a team next week with Rodgers and Antonio Brown on a bye and 2 decent TEs to pick from if he wins again. I'd say he's certainly a playoff contender and no one's starting an elite QB or RB against him from here on in.

I'd love to do a vampire league, and would absolutely throw my name in the hat to be the vampire. Sounds like a ton of fun.

If you'd started Royce Freeman over MGIII you'd still have lost. You would have won had you started Burton over Reed, but I don't think that was a bad call given that we still don't really know anything about Chicago's offense.

When I made that post, I was trailing by ~9.5 and Freeman scored 9.7. Not sure what changed, maybe some of Ito's points hadn't posted yet.

But I almost definitely would have started Burton had I given my lineup half a thought, Reed's been really disappointing and Burton's getting a lot of targets and going against a TERRIBLE Pats D.

I decided to go back to sleep instead of setting my lineup so I missed the Gordon news and then I just checked out for the rest of the day. Wasted that Broncos D performance.

I had a bunch of guys put up 20+ point games in the early games, so it looked like it was going to be one of those weeks where I started all the wrong people, but then all the ones I started put up big games anyway, so it was just a big week for my team. I'll win as long as Edelman doesn't score more than 18 points. Pretty big game between two of the 3 5-2 teams, may end up deciding the first round byes.

Marlon Mack looking like a great waiver pickup. I drafted the Jacksonville defense as what should've been the most reliable defense but I guess they're melting down over there.

Most of the time the potential points scored rank is pretty close to the actual points scored rank, but I'm doing a pretty bad job picking my starters this year - I'm #1 in potential but #6 in actual scoring. That's a pretty big gap.

I wonder if it has to do with only playing with 10 teams - that leaves a lot of talent on the bench. In leagues with more teams, guys that we all have stashed on the bench are regular starters.

Damn I dropped in coaching! Since my team sucks (I blame Leonard Fournette) my new goal is to win in coaching...

The games where you put up 160 points and still lose are the worst.

As it turns out, only three teams are tied at the top. TGOO has more than 150 points more than the other two tied teams, so he is a lock for one of the top two seeds (and a bye). He has to play No Use For a Name, which is rough for NUNE - he could theoretically drop out of the playoffs completely if all three 6-6 teams win and score a zillion points. I'm ahead of Beef by half a point, but we play each other this week, so the "tie" will be broken anyway. Winner gets a bye, loser will be the #3 or #4 seed. He's favored by 7 right now, but it looks like Marlon Mack will be out. Complicated week.

Both playoff games still undecided going into Monday night.

Robber Barons needs 55.5 from M. Thomas and McCaffrey to overtake me. Yahoo gives him a 24% chance.

No Use For A Name needs 25.07 from Brees/Kamara to defeat Nine Inch Neils. Yahoo gives him an 81% chance.

We have our championship game. No Use For A Name (retrovertigo) plays The Great Old Ones (Ol'Gaffer).

Gaffer is favored currently and if he won it would be his third championship in four years, really impressive.

I'll try to remember to open the thread for this league early next year so we can discuss more how we might shake up this league to keep it interesting. Thanks for playing this year, everyone.
