Too Many Moves???

Postby Smizzy » Wed May 26, 2004 3:33 am

Since im a 1st year GM i had a had time understanding what h2h and roto were...im mean i did my home work and i knew how it was both scored and i couldnt decide which i would like better so i did 50/50

4 of each.

Now i wasnt sure how determin the value of a player...I knew if they were good because imbasebll nut,but i could understand what their value was in relation to what position they played ...what Cats were more important and so on.

So Ive been very active on the WW because i didn't feel content with any of my teams after i drafted...not 100%...so ive been trading(for need) and working the WW from work ,home office and my sleep.

Now im getting sh*t because i have 25-30 moves in most of them...Is this something im doing that wrong?

Is this shady play? Or is this just frowned apon.

Ill stop when i feel my team is where i want it to be....and im in 1st :-D

Is this wrong?

Depending on your rules, it might not be wrong at all. The main things that people frown upon are daily add/drops and churning that are done for the sole purpose of using quantity over quality. If you are just trying to improve your team until you are satisfied, then I see nothing wrong with that.

I'm in 4 roto leagues. 2nd, 5th, 4th, 2nd.

I average about 40 moves in each league.

I personally like taking full advantage of the waiver wire. I always have one or two players who I can drop to pick up someone off the fa pool so I can spot start, and so far, it's been working pretty well. I don't think you should worry about it. In one of the leagues I'm in, this guy has 57 moves and he's in first place with 102 points. ;-)

Im not the type of GM to cheat or break the rules of my league..Most are public league but 3 are private and this isn't against the rules .

Im juts trying to make myy team the best possibble.

Ps...i don't even spot start.

thats to complex for me now...With all these leagues....learning as i go,it's tough to absorb it all ,along with stats and names and benches.

This place has helped alot.

Thanks guys

25-30 moves doesn't strike me as being problematic. The top team in my own league has made 26 transactions, and it hasn't raised any eyebrows. If there are no transaction limits, it's just a question of personal playing style.

I have more moves than that in 3 of my 5 leagues, and nobody has said anything. And as stated before, unless your league has a moves limit, there's no reason not to take advantage of players you think will do well in FA.

It got me wondering how many moves I've made vs some other in my league. I've made 34 moves to date. Another has made 65! But there about 6 teams that have made under 10 moves all season and I've noticed that 5 of those teams are near the bottom in the standings. I agree with Arlo.. if its not against the rules and you're improving your team by all means keep doing it. Nothing is stopping anyone else from doing this. Their probably just upset that you're getting all the hot players before them. You snooze you lose!

Doesn't sound like you are breaking any kind of rules or trying to use a "qantity over quality" tactic to me so I'd say you are fine.
