Fantasy Playoff DraftPosted by RedMustang on 1/1/13 at 11:05 pm
How many of you do this? We hold a draft choosing players among the playoff teams. We divide into leagues of 4-5 teams each depending on how many show up for the draft. After draft night, no replacements are allowed. We draft 2 QB's, 2 kickers, and 6 of any combination of RB's, WR's, or TE's. The winner of each league gets money, and the highest point total of the 2nd place finishers. The overall high point total also gets bonus money. It's a great way to keep the fantasy season going!
I had done ESPN's free game a few times, then last year our league started one.
In the espn league, every team is using most of the same players, it's weak. The real game is quite a challenge. In order to fill a roster people end up with teams they know will lose. Your kicker, TE, or D/st may only play one game. It's a game of survival.
One and Done is the best, once the players is played that player can't be played again. So if you play Rodgers and Brady and both make the Super Bowl you're screwed. There's a lot of strategy to it. Highest combined scoring fantasy team after the SB wins.
