Incidentally, while the tiebreaker is head to head, the Commissioner of the league (whoever that is) has the power to seed the playoffs directly in the event of ties. He can select who he wants but obviously the published rules say head to head, so that should probably be used. There may be some controversy over what happens if there is a head to head tie (say two teams have a 1-1 record against each other), as to whether it goes to net head to head points, overall points or overall net points..... that would be a matter for discussion and the rules are not clear. They should probably be agreed upon in advance.
Commissioner Anseo!

I have it still set to the default so http://www.nfl.com/fantasyfootball/help/custom-schedule#tiebreakers" rel="nofollow - as you'll read here ....


By default, tie breakers for final regular season standings in the case of an overall W-L-T record tie are as follows:

  • Head-to-Head Record (NFL-Managed Default)
  • Points Scored For 
  • Points Scored Against (Most Difficult Schedule)
  • Coin Flip

Just a quick thing:

Say there is a tiebreak situation where there are three teams tied, and they are 2-1, 2-1 and 1-3 in the head to head. Would the second tiebreaker go back to the head to head between the first two teams? That might not be even - you could have a case where they are 1-0 and 0-1, being 1-1 and 2-0 respectively against the third team. Or would it go to the second tiebreaker then, overall points for?

I think the NFL rules say that once a team has been eliminated on a tiebreaker it goes back to the first tiebreaker again between any teams who remain tied.

Here are some tiebreaker head to head scenarios as I see them (in each case I am counting Super Marino and the Green Wizards as having better than 10-5 records as they are both 10-3 at the minute):

If The Night Trains, AFC Shenhua Bills and Cooley Mucksavages end up tied on 10-5 (Ray Lewis's Suit would have to be 9-6):
AFC Shenhua Bills 2-0 - IN
The Night Trains 1-1 - IN
Cooley Mucksavages 0-2 - OUT

If The Night Trains, Ray Lewis's Suit and Cooley Mucksavages end up tied on 10-5 (AFC Shenhua Bills would have to be 8-5 or 9-6):
The Night Trains 3-0 - IN
Ray Lewis's Suit 1-2 - IN
Cooley Mucksavages 0-2 - OUT

I'll have a proper look at more scenarios after this weekend's games. There are far too many permutations to have a proper look right now. There could be plenty of teams end up on 9-6 and it could get very, very messy. It will be clearer after the weekend and we'll it properly then.

There's less need for trading when there are small squad sizes as you can generally pick up what you need.

The other league I play in has ten teams but starting teams of 2 QBs, 2 RBs, 4 WRs, 2 TEs, 1 Flex (R/W/T), 2 DEFs and 1 K. Plus a bench of about ten each. Trading becomes a necessity when you suffer injuries if you are short at one position and an opponent has someone spare. Bye weeks too played havoc to some people.

Just had a look through tiebreakers etc etc. It looks like the picture is going to be relatively clear ahead of next week's games. It seems unlikely to change regardless of what happens tomorrow night.

Super Marino and the Green Wizards will be into the playoffs, definitely, after this weekend, if they weren't already.

First point: If Ray Lewis's Suit defeat my team, the Night Trains, after tomorrow night's game (unclear at the minute), then the playoff lineup will be set, as the AFC Shenhua Bills and Ray Lewis's Suit will join Super Marino and the Green Wizards in the playoffs.

My Night Trains will be 8-6, along with the Cooley Mucksavages, and the Bills will be 9-5 with the tiebreaker over both of us (Ray Lewis's Suit will move to 10-4 and the playoffs, along with the two eleven win teams). Even if Castel di Flanno7hi somehow manage to finish the season 9-6 (quite unlikely it seems, given that they need to avoid Aaron Rodgers scoring more than 11.36 points tomorrow night to even get to 8-6) and tie with AFC Shenhua Bills, they lose in the tiebreaker to any of three of us, as they lost to each of us (the Bills, the Night Trains and the Mucksavages). The lineup will be set if I lose tomorrow night, with Super Marino, the Green Wizards, the AFC Shenhua Bills of Wicklow and Ray Lewis's Suit all into the final four.

Second point: If I defeat Ray Lewis's Suit after tomorrow's game, then it will be two from three between the Night Trains, the Bills and Ray Lewis's Suits to progress to the playoffs.

The following will determine which two of the three make it:

1) The winner of the game between the Suits and the Bills will definitely make it. I will also make it if The Night Trains defeat the Boston Tebow Party, regardless of the other result.

2) If I lose and the Bills win, then The Night Trains will go through and the Suits will go out. I would be 2-0 against the Suits and, if they also finish 9-6, 1-0 against the Mucksavages.

3) If I lose and the Suits win, then the Bills will go through and The Night Trains will go out. The Bills would be 1-0 against both the Night Trains and the Mucksavages and thus in.

Like I pointed out before, even if Castel di Flanno 7hi manage to finish 9-6, they lost to all four of other potential tied teams and would thus be out regardless.

I am 99% sure this is accurate at the minute based on the head to head tiebreaker. A lot turns on how tomorrow night's game goes. My 41.62 point lead should, hopefully, be enough, but with the Suits having Julio Jones, Jordy Nelson and the Packers defence up and me only having Eddie Lacy, I need a little luck. I'd say I'm favourite to hold on for the win as it stands but not necessarily.

YOUR 3 IN A ROW LEAGUE CHAMPIONS


Posted By: SuperDave84
Date Posted: 09 Dec 2014 at 4:19am
A minute to half time and I'm over 43 points clear of the Suits.

Then Nelson scores.... then in the second half, Jones scores. Then Nelson again on a 60 yarder, about one minute later. Jones is having a career night, over 250 yards. A 3.12 point lead with 6:15 remaining. I'm right on the edge now, thanks to outrageous second half performances from both Jones and Nelson after mostly quiet first halves. I just need Green Bay to run the goddamn ball with Eddie Lacy and I might have a chance but otherwise I'm screwed.

I was over 43 points clear with the Suits only having two players scoring. 3 second half touchdowns and about 400 yards from the two of them in a little over half the game.... you have got to be kidding me. I am going to have the highest scoring team in the league and I may very well not make the playoffs. Jokeshop.

Okay, seeing as I (just about) held on to win tonight, the position in advance of next week is as outlined above, namely:

1) The winner of the game between Ray Lewis's Suit and the AFC Shenhua Bills will make it to the playoffs.

2) The Night Trains will also make it if The Night Trains defeat the Boston Tebow Party.

3) If The Night Trains lose:
a) and the AFC Shenhua Bills win, then The Night Trains will go through and Ray Lewis's Suit will go out.
b) and Ray Lewis's Suit wins, then the AFC Shenhua Bills will go through and The Night Trains will go out.

Cooley Mucksavages go out regardless, even if they win and finish 9-6, as they lost to each of the Night Trains, the AFC Shenhua Bills and Ray Lewis's Suit.

Wouldn't be so quick. The Packers only win was against me when they somehow scored 96 points, easily their highest score of the season. They lost a load of games because of bye weeks and injuries but those have cleared up now.

Super Marino will probably still win, admittedly, and leave you as second seed.

Then again, the other thing is, there is little enough difference between the potential third and fourth seeds. We're all 8-5 at the minute, so there will likely be little difference between being first and second seed anyway.

In this league, I'm obviously in the semi final. In the other league, we are a week ahead (don't include week 17 as they are too many variables and risks of rested starters) and I am in the final there.

Both my opponents have DeMarco Murray. Is it really wrong to wish injury on an individual? Or at least that he doesn't recover?

Date Posted: 17 Dec 2014 at 11:17pm
Blake Bortles or Charlie Whitehurst? This the championship game in my other league so I need to get these decisions right. It's a two QB league, with ten teams, hence the mediocre options. Jacksonville play Tennessee tomorrow night and I have their two starters (assuming Bortles is passed fit) to pick between for my QB2 position (Russell Wilson is QB1).

The alternative is hoping that Cam Newton gets fit as it is his injury that is causing me this headache to begin with. I had Wilson and Newton for the season after trading Flacco away early on to strengthen elsewhere.

The other call is Tre Mason or Jonathan Stewart. I'm leaning towards Mason but I'm not sure.

I am leaning towards Bortles too.... I cannot risk waiting on Newton because I don't have another option and there are no other free agents who will be playing later this weekend, not even Case Keenum, who my opponent picked up this week, probably to screw with me, by the looks of it.

I think the Stewart/Mason decision can be decided depending on whether Newton plays. If he doesn't, Carolina will be running it a lot more presumably and I'll go for Stewart. If Newton does play, I'll stick with Mason, I think. Sunday decision.

Just checked though and both Cleveland (v. Stewart) and New York Giants (v. Mason) have given up 10 TDs on the season along the ground. Hmmm, decisions, decisions. I'm going to leave it to the Newton factor.

Gron got pulled for me with half an hour left which had me worrying but clay did the business for me, as did Royal, my other late addition

The lack of a decent Pats running back or wide receiver is harmful though.

Wait, the Hackers have two Seahawks and two Packers..... not fecked at all yet. If the Seahawks make it, you'll still be in a strong position, even more so if the Colts make it too, seeing as less people have Colts than Patriots. You can always bring in a couple of Seahawks for your eliminated players if you are worried.

Okay, so here is the position:

Night Trains 470, 4 players x4, 1 player x2, 3 players x1, effectively 21 scorers in the Super Bowl.
Green Hay Hackers 459, 3 players x4, 2 players x2, 3 players x1, effectively 19 scorers in the Super Bowl.
nvidic's picks 455, 6 players x4, 2 players x2, effectively 28 scorers in the Super Bowl.
The Wizards 452, 5 players x4, 1 player x2, 2 players x1, effectively 24 scorers in the Super Bowl.
Ballybrack Badgers 386, 2 players x4, 1 player x3, 4 players x2, 1 player x1, effectively 20 scorers in the Super Bowl.
Shedite 374, 3 players x4, 3 players x2, 2 players x2, effectively 20 scorers in the Super Bowl.
The Bo Jackson List, 310, 1 player x4, 1 player x 3, 1 player x2, 5 players x1, effectively 14 scorers in the Super Bowl.
The U 307, 2 players x4, 6 players x1, effectively 14 scorers in the Super Bowl.
jhoran 91's picks, 4 players x2, 4 players x1, effectively 12 scorers in the Super Bowl.

Now, there are effectively three players in with a shout in my reading of it. A good performance by Wilson, Haushka and the Seahawks defence and nvidic is in, but if Brady, Gostkowski and the Patriots defence perform better and then it's between me and the Wizards. Our lineups are similar (4x Brady, Gronk, Gostkowski and the Patriots defence, in each team) but the Wizards have the advantage of having Lynch x3 whereas I have him x2, plus he has Edelman x2. That could be enough to bridge an 18 point gap but not definitely. nvidic's lineup is much more Seahawk heavy and he is relying on Wilson, Haushka, Seahawks defence, Lynch and Blount who are all x4. The lineups are very different though, so all three of us have a shot. I'm writing off the Hackers because they will be outscored by nvidic definitely. All his multiples are the same as nvidic's but nvidic has Wilson x4 as well, plus extra multipliers on Blount and Haushka.

I'd make nvidic odds on favourites, then the wizards then the Night Trains. They are the only three with a shot. Had the Packers made it, I'd have been home and hosed, with a healthy lead and significantly more effective multipliers than anyone else. I'd have had 29 effective scorers, against 24 for the Wizards, 18 for the Hackers and 16 for nvidic. F**kin Bostick.

Only thing with my lineup is between edelman, blount, lavell and gronk (not likely the later) at least one and likely two will have next to no production

Seahawks win and I should win though, touch wood

You wouldn't have had a shot without that f**king Packers collapse though. I was set.

Have all three scorers so far, two 4x and one 2x, not having Brady could well cost me though

Hard luck.

I see the winner of the entire competition had 7 Patriots and Marshawn Lynch in his line up. It's what you'd expect - Brady, Blount, Lynch, Edelman, Amendola, Gronk, Gostkowski and the Patriots defence.

F**king Packers though. If they'd only hung in, I'd have won our league at least.

Finished number 2004 in the world in the Playoff challenge.

Had the same line up as the guy who won it except I went for the Seahawk's Defence and La Fell. He went for Pat's Defence and Amendola.

Sheee-it, tough break.

Were they considerations you even made? I'm guessing you never thought of the Patriots defence, whatever about the LaFell / Amendola consideration.

Then again, as a non-US resident, you weren't eligible for the prize anyway.

Been a while coming but finally won one of the ybig fantasy comps, been close last 2 years in the main nfl one, we needed a new winner anyway as Vidic was getting boring winning all the time LOL

The Green Wizards will be back next year full of eagles players trying to wrestle that crown from him as well Thumbs Up

Fantasy Football 2015
So the people who abandoned their teams last season are banned from entering this year. That's....
RogerMilla, UCD AFC, Mayo Mark

Two of those spots are already taken above....
Sbyrne24, Borussia

So who's playing?
  • Sbyrne24 Yes
  • Borussia - Yes
  • Shedite - Yes
  • SuperDave84 - Yes
  • PhillyK - Yes
  • Shocco?
  • JH91 ?
  • nvidic?
  • nvidic's mate?
  • fear-glas?
  • Flanno7hi?
  • Trap For Pope?
  • Galway Night Trains (Is that run by Del piero or Bo Jackson, or are they one and the same?)
I'm proposing a draft on Tuesday 1st September. Any issues with that date?

No keepers.

Also, for draft order, will we put it in reverse order of last year's final rankings (like in real life?)

1st September? Sure half of us will either be in the Algarve or en route!

Week before? Or Tuesday September 8th? Maybe a bit close to kick off (10th) but I think the 29th August to the 6th September is out for a lot of people.

Yeah happy to do it whenever if people are already en route.

I reckon a midweek evening would be best.

Yeah week before we all head to Faro probably be best I reckon

So is Tom Brady still a first round draft pick?


Posted By: SuperDave84
Date Posted: 29 Jul 2015 at 2:00pm
He never was.

Depends if he gets an injunction or not where he is drafted.

All the teams in his division are set up to stop him, too.

Is this any good lads? A few lads in work do it, but I wouldn't be bothered if I had to put a good bit of time into it each week. The Premier League FF is fairly straight forward, would you put much more time into this?

Yes is the short answer but it's superior in every way to the soccer one, if you watch the NFL on a Sunday evening it'll be worth it
