Maybe Jonnu takes away some of those RZ opportunities.

Thoughts?
Mostert is kind of a scary click. I feel intuitively there will be massive regression TD wise for him. There could be injury regression as well. On the other hand his price is nice considering what he did last year. I suppose I'm not fading but I won't be overweight to him.

I prefer the big contests as well. My concern is that it's a long shot to win one of those tournaments let alone make a big cash. Maybe I should mix in some smaller tournaments.

Does anybody know what the average advance rate for BBM is? I'm trying to figure out roughly how much this year will cost me. How about the percentage chance of getting to the finals?

Odds to make the finals in bbm is something like .08% right, assuming no skill edge?

Yes, expectation is to make the finals every 1 out of 8 seasons if you max enter.

2 nice squads if the RBs hit. Let’s go Brooks.

I’m interested to see what UD does next. The Pit Bull is about to close. The Eliminator just crossed 50%. BBM almost 40%. WW over 40%.

The Marathon and Sprint are moving slowly, but I think they’ll end up filling near the season begin, as people fire bullets hoping for overlay. I don’t care for The Marathon, but I’d play The Sprint at a lower price point. Hopefully they adjust that next season.

Why are we playing BBM if the odds of making the final are ridiculous?

I'm 3 drafts into BBM and I'm starting to wonder why I am doing this. It feels like playing at a poker table full of solid regs and all we are doing is moving the money around the table. Everybody seems to be sharp and constructing really good rosters. Maybe this will significantly change when the casuals start drafting. Also, it seems like such a long shot to make significant money. Draft Kings feels like stealing money from a baby. I just hate the way they organize your drafted players during the draft.

The DK interface sucks so bad. But yeah, BBM is akin to a lottery where you feel like you slightly have some control. DK is too, and while you feel like you're taking money in your own respective room, think of all of the other rooms where sharper players are doing the same.

With that said, last year's winning roster had some big hits and some bumps. It even had one QB with no team correlation and one QB with only RB correlation, neither of which are rushing QBs.

From the 11 spot. The good ole 3-6-6-3.

Tua (9.11), Love (12.02), CJ (17.11)

Mattison (6.02), Swift (7.11), Conner (8.02), Mostert (13.11), Chuba (16.02), Kyren (18.02)

ARSB (1.11), CD (2.02), Amari (3.11), Watson (4.02), Pickens (5.11), Reed (15.11)

Muth (10.02), LaPorta (11.11), Juwan (14.02)

1. He drafted in late August and basically smashed rounds 11 through 18.

2. Spike weeks from Pickens and Amari carried him through w16.

3. He game stacked Det/Dal, GB/Min, and Phi/Ari.

With that said, only the ARSB/CD game stack hit his lineup, granted those were his first two picks.

The winning lineup was

Love - 28.44
Conner - 25.8
Kyren - 29.1
ARSB - 19.1
CD - 33.7
Pickens - 16.6
Juwan - 19
Reed - 23.9

Total of 195.64 and could have been even higher if Reed didn't leave injured and Love wasn't pulled early.

4. He 3 inactive players in w17 in Cooper, Watson, and Mostert.

5. At the end of the day, anything can work, so be creative and push things that look uncomfortably risky. I'm still having trouble doing this, but I'm trying to get outside of my comfort zone box when constructing, which also can help uniqueness against the field.

Three new UD contests.

1. The Hound Dog 2 - 5 max entry, $6 buy in, $20k to first. 20 second, 30 second, and slow drafts available.

2. The Pug 2 - 3 max entry, $12 buy in, $20k to first. Fast draft only with either 15 seconds or 30 seconds.

3. The Golden 3 - Single entry, $10 buy in, $25k to first. It's winner take all. Decent advance rates of 2/12, 1/4, and 1/5, and a 23 seat final, but I'll pass on this one.

These will fill quickly.

Do you know what the BBM pay out for advancing to week 15 and beyond is? I just see the overall pay outs.

I'm shocked that Puca wasn't on this team.

What's your reasoning for passing on the Golden?

Are these gonna fill in a day or two?

So w15 is simply $35 for the 8,625 - 112,112 range.

8,624 will advance to w16. The w16 payouts will be ordered based on total team scores of the teams that do not advance to w17 from 540 through 8,624 and then fall into those payout tiers.

I suppose I could fire the bullet for $10 at a chance to win $25k. The chance of winning is .036%, so worse than making the BBM finals at .08%. Granted, the buy in is $10 vs $25 and the "min" payoff is $25k versus $3,750.

These will fill in less than 24 hours. The Hound Dog and Golden are already over 30% filled. The Pug is at 10%.

Looks like best ball drafts have exploded in popularity - is this gonna work to combine season long fantasy football posts with best ball posts?

You would think the best ball guys would slow down after the season starts but we know they just can't help themselves but to brag incessantly about their 3-4 good teams out of 100 or so.

Maybe dynasty and season long in 1 thread and best ball and weekly in another? Maybe it doesn't even matter? Maybe we have lost enough regular posters this sub-forum cant support 2 FF threads?

Sir, I’m going to have at least 10 good teams out of 700 to brag about.

In all seriousness, probably not enough season long/dynasty traffic these days to warrant two separate threads. But I’ll participate in both if that’s the route y’all want to go.

We are already over halfway to the total posts from the thread covering all of last season.
