New Commish help

Postby Devil Doc » Thu Feb 02, 2012 1:59 pm

I'm starting a new fantasy keeper league, H2H 10 teams, with a few of my buddies, and I'm using fleaflicker as my host site. Curious if anyone has used this site before for baseball? Is that roster TOO deep for a 10 team league? If so should I shrink the number of SP and RP and just make it a total of 5-7 P instead?

Any suggestions on how to make this better would be great, thanks for any input.

SCORING:

Hitting
Rule Apply To
1 point for every Run
1 point for every Hit
1 point for every Home Run
1 point for every Stolen Base
1 point for every Run Batted In

Pitching
5 points for every Win
-5 points for every Loss
3 points for every Save
-1 point for every Earned Run
1 point for every Strike Out

Also, my starting line ups will be this:

Roster Requirements 1 C, 1 1B, 1 2B, 1 SS, 1 3B, 3 OF, 1 UTIL, 5 SP, 3 RP, 1 P
Totals 30: 18 Starters, 12 Bench, +2 DL

I know you didn't ask about scoring but I thought I would share this with you. Honestly, I don't remember where I found this but it works for us (some site did a "study" of the most fair h2h scoring). Very little value for middle relievers so we have considered adding holds for a very small point value (like 2 pts).

In my 18 team league we go 432 players deep, so to me 300 is not deep enough. It devalues the draft and encourages streaming of two start pitchers in a weekly h2h league.

I don't think I have every been on fleaflickers site.

peace

We use 348 players in our NL-Only (out of 400 total). I would find 300 in a mix league (out of 750 possible players) a bit boring. Just a bunch of all-star teams which takes alot of skill and strategy out of the game. We use 2C,1b,2b,3b,ss,mi,ci,5of, Utility, 9p and 6 reserves. Using the 5 extra positions takes up 50 more players, effectively almost two other teams.

Your current roster settings are shallow, no doubt. Your reserves number is good though,IMO

Good luck man!

I wouldn't say 300 players is "shallow"... thats deeper than standard leagues on Yahoo or ESPN and such. Its not a "deep" league but I'd say its average.

If you want to go a bit deeper than why not just go to 12 teams. I don't like massive rosters in fantasy... I'd rather have more teams.

There are 750 MLB players at any given time. If you only have 300 in a Fantasy League, you have to consider it VERY SHALLOW. Like it was said above, all of the players will be All-Stars. It takes no skill to play in that kind of league. Why even worry about guys coming up from the Minors. There are better players in the FA pool.

Did a little research and your current active roster configuration is typical of h2h and the one I posted above for roto. I have never played h2h, so I don't know if extended rosters will mess up scoring. Maybe someone can help with that.

I have played both mix and league specific leagues and just find the league specific to be more fun for relieving alot of the problems discussed here. From what I can see, mixed leagues "require" 18 teams. I see it is you and your buddies. Do you guys follow the same team(s)/league? Going NL or AL only may be an answer. But I am biased of course:)
