Is Your League the Best? The Yahoo FP Challenge

Postby Tito » Fri Feb 07, 2003 7:37 pm

The Yahoo FP Challenge pits leagues against each other. The league with the highest Fantasy Point total at the end of the year wins. The only rules are that you have 12 different owners, and you conform to the same customized point values, positions, and game limits. We use Sandbox's scoring system:

Batting:
Category - Fantasy Points
Runs Scored (R) 1
Base Hit (H) 1
Double (2B) 1
Triple (3B) 2
Home Run (HR) 3
Runs Batted In (RBI) 1
Walks (BB) 1
Strike Out (SO) -1
Hit by Pitch (HBP) 1
Stolen Base (SB) 2
Caught Stealing (CS) -1
Error (E) -1
Sacrifice (Sac) 1
Ground into double-play (GIDP)* -1
Catcher - Runner Thrown Out (RTO)* 1
Hit for the Cycle (HC) 5


Pitching:
Category - Fantasy Points
Each 1/3 Inning Pitched (IP) 1
Wins (W) 10
Loss (L) -5
Save (S) 10
Blown Save (BS)* -5
Hit (H) -1
Walks (BB) -1
Strike Out (SO) 1
Runner Thrown Out (RTO)* 1
Complete Game (CG) 5
Complete Game Shutout (CGSO) 10
Earned Runs Allowed (ER) -1
Wild Pitch (WP) -1
Error (E) -1
Hit Batter (HB) -1
Balk (BK) -1
Complete Game No Hitter (CGNO) 20
Perfect Game (PG) 30

Most of the people playing belong to another sports forum I belong to, and they would love to compete against guys from other forums. If interested, get your teams ready. Post your interest here.[/b]

I'm fairly new here, but I'd be interested if others are willing to do this.

Of course, you'd also be competing against people within your league.

It helps keep people in the lower tier active. Hope you find some folks!

Try this site and I'm sure you can catch on with a team:
