2018 Fantasy Football general discussion thread

Here’s a thread for general fantasy football discussion and recruitment.

In my 12 team, full point PPR money league, I can keep 3. Here’s my top options:
David Johnson
Devonta Freeman
Jay Ajayi
Stefon Diggs
Keenan Allen

In this league, I’ve traditionally drafted two middle of the pack QBs and played the matchup. Last year, I had Stafford and Winston. Should I stay with this strategy or try to draft one good QB and then just grab a bye week replacement from the waiver wire?

I would hesitate to say I’m good at fantasy, so I’m hedging that right off the bat :slight_smile:

I’ve gotten made fun of for it in the past, but I always use a qb for my first pick. RBs are always the ones in the top 5, buf if I’m spending that high of a pick, I want the person who’s touching the ball EVERY time. So my philosophy is spend big on qbs and then pick up another one or two in later rounds.

As for your keeper, Johnson and Diggs are the two I like there. I’m worried about DJs health, but IIRC he was a big threat to catch the ball and if you’re in a PPR league that’s good eating. Diggs won’t get as many touches as Thielin will, but he’s more of a TD threat. I don’t trust the others to repeat their success.

My turn for a question: What should I do at TE? I’ve traditionally gone with Greg Olsen in CAR, but he’s getting injured more and more and I’m worried about this year. Ertz? Jimmy Graham?

I love Ertz, I’ve got him in that league as well, but I can’t justify keeping a TE with only 3 keepers.

Going by ADP the keepers should be Johnson, Allen, and whoever you prefer between Diggs and Freeman. That way gets you the most value, but if you really hate Allen, it might be worthwhile to swap in the worse of Diggs/Freeman.

Here are some fantasy rankings for the four different SDMB fantasy leagues: Aggregate Rankings. It’s a combined ranking for players in multiple SDMB leagues.

Aggregate ranks are expressed as a win/loss record. This record isn’t your actual record in your various leagues, but instead what your record would be if you played a head-to-head matchup against every team each week. Your cumulative win/loss percentage determines your rank.

For example, let’s say you scored 4th of 10 in one league and 8th of 14 in another. In the first league, you finished ahead of 6 players and behind 3 players, so your record in that league would be 6-3. Add in the second league where you finished 8th of 14, which translates to 6-7, and your aggregate record ends up 12-10.

The Aggregate Rank does not include players who are only in one league, as their performance is perfectly measured by that league’s rankings.

There are two different tables: Actual and Potential. Actual is based on the actual players you started. Potential means if everyone started only their highest scorers at every position. As in, the highest potential scores you could have gotten.

    The Lgs column shows how many leagues you’re in, and the Coaching grades are a simple percentage: Actual / Potential. As in, how well you chose who to start.

Aggregate Rankings are season totals, not individual weeks. (I could add weekly totals easily enough, but I think season totals are sufficient.) So the tables below show the combined records for weeks 1 and 2.

The red and green numbers show your change in rank in that table compared to the previous week. If you’re 3rd this week, but were 9th last week, you jumped up 6 spots so you’d see a +6 next to your name.

    I’m liking these “record if you played everyone” stats quite a bit. Should I add them to the league stats? I could remove coaching grades if four tables is too many. Anyone have any preferences?

Oh cool, I didn’t notice this thread until now. I definitely like the cross-league rankings. Might want to make a link to this thread the next time you post in the individual league threads.

It’s kind of amazing that my Big League performance is so bad that it’s dragged my coach rating into the bottom half even though I’m #1 in the Dynasty league and HHM (and #6 in the All-Pro league).

Your coach rating is in a 4-way tie for 4th:

90% motu, Munch
89% enalzi
88% Gaffer, Omni, RNATB, Tcups

I not smart.

    I think the position change info (the green and red numbers) is my favorite part of the rankings both here and in the individual league threads. And as was expected, the amount of position changes in season totals is slowing down as the season progresses.

    Beef has made noticeable jumps in both tables two weeks in a row to climb into 2nd place, but Hamlet still seems to have a stranglehold on 1st.
