$10 Guillotine League, ESPN. Starts Week 5. Draft Saturday

I am starting a Guillotine League for Week 5. Here's the details:

---------

What is Guillotine format?

Guillotine is a fantasy football format where after each week, the team with the lowest score out of all teams in the league is eliminated. All of their players are dropped to the waiver wire and the remaining teams can bid on them as they normally would waiver-wire players, using FAAB.

Overview
Buy-in: $10 LeagueSafe (Just a small amount since this is the first time running this format of league).
Site: ESPN
Number of teams: 14
Winner-take-all ($140).
Trading is turned off!
Draft date: Saturday, Sept 29 at 6pm EST. (Note: Week 5 is the first week of the league, so stats accumulated for Weeks 1-4 matchups do not matter).

General Settings
6pts per passing TD
1PPR
No kicker
No DST
FAAB balance of $100. Min bid = $0.

Rosters
1 QB
2 RB
3 WR
2 FLX (WR/RB/TE)
1 TE
1 OP (QB/WR/RB/TE)
4 BENCH

Elimination Process
This league will 14 teams and start on Week 5. Here's how it will go:
Weeks 5-14: One team is eliminated each week (14 teams becomes 4 teams)
Weeks 15-16: A two-week matchup is played between the remaining 4 teams. Whoever has the highest 2-week score of these 4 teams wins the championship.

What it means to be "eliminated"
Everyone in the league has a 200 acquisition limit for the season. When someone is eliminated, I will do the following:
1. Use LM-powers to drop their entire team to waivers.
2. Use LM-powers to set their acquisitions >200 so they are unable to make any further moves.

Amazing - two teams appear to have auto drafted in a 2QB league and landed Tyrod and Garopollo as their only QBs

Yeah the waiver bid for Beathard should be interesting, he's the only undrafted active QB.

This league is going to present some crazy scenarios each week.

https://clickydraft.com/draftapp/board/133513


the results of the guillotine draft. QB/RB/RB/WR/WR/WR/TE/Flex/Flex/Superflex/4 bench. 6pt passing TD, 1pt PPR

I'll post updates in here of the interesting things that happen in the league each week.

14 teams, 1 elimination a week for 10 weeks from Week 5-14.

Week 15/16 is a 2-wk matchup between the 4 remaining teams for all the marbles

Notable Week 1 bids:

84 - Hopkins
22 - Bell
14 - Hilton
12 - Howard

I think the person who bid 84 on Hopkins might have thought the FAAB reset each week? not sure. They have $2 left.

I admire his conviction - 11 out of 13 people bid on Hopkins

84, 42, 30, 25, 25, 22, 18, 15, 10, 8, 7 out of 100

Obviously the biggest mistake you can make in this format is getting eliminated before you spend your FAAB

Yeah, really good point. Hopkins is easily a top WR who will stay on your team until the end so he's def worth a good amount. I would have expected one of the teams who did poorly last week to bid a lot on him though rather than a team that seemed to be pretty solid.

Oh yeah, things should start tightening up now, especially with bye weeks ramping up.

Thanks for all of the work you're doing Josh! I'm still not sure how I feel about the $22 I spent on Bell last week. Still seems fine, but I was really hoping he'd be back next week when making the bid. Now, it's not looking so good.

Odell, Brady, AP, Rudolph, and maybe Darnold for a team weak at QB really only the biggest possible pick ups this week with the Kupp injury. I'm sure someone will get Kupp, but he certainly won't be playing for a few weeks minimum with an MCL sprain.

Hyde and OJ wouldn't be bad pick ups either.

Bidding strategy is super interesting, I lowballed last week just because I didn't know where people were at plus my team looked pretty clear of last few spots. Definitely keen to get this going again next year

Re: $10 Guillotine League, ESPN. Starts Week 5. Draft Saturday

OBJ becomes first consensus bid player

37,27,27,23,22,17,15,15,13,12,11,2

Other additions:

Kupp 28
Brady 20
Hyde 19 - there was a 24 bid but that person had already added OBJ so roster full
Darnold 8
AP 5
Gore 2
Rudolph 1
Riddick 0
Kearse 0

Brady for 20 seems like a steal. Darnold for 8 also doesn't seem too bad

Rudolph for 1 seems solid. Damn I hope bidding a bit light on OBJ doesn't come back to bite me!

Re: $10 Guillotine League, ESPN. Starts Week 5. Draft Saturday

Def interested in running this again next year (maybe for some more $ and maybe with a discount on my buy-in so it's more worth my time given the manual work required - though I do enjoy running it!). The biggest thing I am struggling with right now is how to expand it to a full season. Here's my thoughts so far -

If we had started on Week 1, we would need 18 teams in the current format. I really like the SuperFlex aspect of it since when we get down to the final 4 teams I didn't want only 4 QBs to be owned. Could SuperFlex + 18 teams cause an issue? I'm not sure - there would certainly be an extremely high demand for QBs. Maybe in that format, I would drop QB Passing TDs to 4 points so that QBs aren't so valuable.

I want there to be some degree of skill involved at the end, and that's why I went with larger rosters and a 4-team final. I think smaller rosters and a 2-team final would be more of a crapshoot and would marginalize the process of accumulating top players from waivers throughout the season.

Bah wanted Kearse for this week, considered throwing in $1 just in case but thought people would be too dazzled with OBJ/Kupp and he'd be left alone

I was happy to see that I won the flip and had priority over you.

I wanted Gore for this week, so I bid $2 on him even though he’s definitely not worth that long-term.

Although, I’m hoping he keeps stealing more and more carries from Drake, and maybe even some TDs.
