I like the flex but if we are removing some spots my vote is on remove the flex and a bench..

I like the flex also.

We can always try just removing 1 spot this season and see how it goes.

Just a suggestion.

How did yall like the payment and payout website that I used last season ( leaguesafe.com)? You two were 2nd and 3rd place. Did the pre-loaded Visa card work out for yall?

To everyone: Did anyone have any gripes about that site? Will everyone be ok using it again this year?

The pay site worked fine for me. I think it only took a couple of days for me to get my money.

I thought that site was pretty cool. It was easy to pay and all.

I like the flex spot a lot. I do think just taking 1 spot away would make a difference. If you wanted to take away 2 spots, I think that taking the flex spot out (along with 1 bench spot) would be like a lateral movement in terms of depth, since 12 teams would have 1 less starter and less need for an extra player anyway. Just my opinion.

ETA: I feel like the way I typed that may seem confusing.

What I'm trying to say is that pretty much everyone keeps the same two RBs and WRs in their line ups, with that flex being that spot that you usually fill weekly from your bench.

You really think I'm not going to defend my title! Hell yeah this Falcons fan is back to once again take home the GOLD!

As for how it should be set up: I strongly agree with reducing bench spots and keeping 12 players. I'd be in favor of increasing the flex positions and taking away a RB position. So something like:

QB
RB
WR
WR/RB
WR/RB/TE
TE
D
K

This gives a lot of room to make moves. I can't view at work, but can someone paste the current scoring rules so we can discuss those as well? Please do it in text form vs a picture as my work blocks some image hosting sites.

Here's the scoring...

How do you feel about increasing the buy in to $50 this season?

I'm not sure I like the idea of an additional flex spot on top of the one we have already. That would just allow for an owner to hoard WRs or RBs. If we're going to keep the Flex position we already have then I'd rather remove 1 RB of the 2 RB positions.

I'd like to see it as 1 point per 25 yards, but I guess it doesn't really matter.

Hell yeah, just more money I can take from you suckas! (ok I'll stop with the smack talk until the draft)

So the difficulty with starting players always comes when the bye weeks start happening. That's when up to 20% of the teams are off. So there are probably 30 rb 40 wr and 20 te worth keeping. if you take away 20% from each you get 24rb, 32 wr, and 16 te to choose from on the worst weeks. So if you take away one starting wr, rb and te for each team based on non-flex positions you have 12 rb, 20 wr, and 4 te for flex spots. so you have 36 keepers in a 12 team league for the bye weeks available to fill 2 flex spots. that, IMO, is plenty.

It forces you to look ahead, but doesn't force you to start a <10 possession rb.

Throw in the fact that we want to reduce the benches down to 4 or 5 spots, you would still be able to keep about 3 rb/wr/te on your bench per person worth keeping. You would have to be smart about your bench and not hoard prospects like some have suggested.

As for the scoring:
Where are the negative points?

QB is too heavily rated (although that helped me greatly last year) Need to either add PPR or taking passing TDs to 4 points and passing yards to 1/25 yds.

Oh and if we are going to keep doing this year after year, I wouldn't mind discussing making it a keeper league and "interviewing" replacements vs just grabbing the first person that posts in the thread.

agree 1000 %
20/25 yards per point on qb is perfect.. 15 way too low..
and i would go with either 4 or 5 pts per td for the qb also...
PPR maybe .5 pts per reception ?
