Playoff Fantasy Football League is a go...sign up here
PPR Scoring, format is as follows. We'd use Myfantasyleague

quote:

The key is every owner can pick any player — but just one time. But as teams are eliminated from the playoffs, those players also go with them. So you have to constantly weigh whether to pick players from teams you think are going to lose (and which therefore on average get far less points), saving the players from the winning teams, or whether you are going to play pot odds and pick players on teams expected to win hoping for huge weeks that they will not come close to replicating even if they do survive. Then, of course, you hope that the favorites with thee stars lose shootouts so you get the best of both worlds.

The survivor/DFS format is like three-dimensional chess. You have to map out a theory for the playoffs — who are your Super Bowl teams? And then work back from there (though you only really need to be right on one of the Super Bowl teams to have enough players to work with). And when do you mix in a sprinkling of players in ideal weather/indoors and versus weaker defenses? Then you can still trounce the owners who went with lesser players in the meantime and held available stars for future matchups more likely to be lower scoring.

For each round, you have to consider maximizing weekly points and maximizing the opportunity to field a full roster for subsequent rounds. The wild-card and divisional rounds are never really a problem. The key turning point is usually the conference championship round — can you field a full roster and still have enough players left over for the Super Bowl?


No min or max on allowed participants, we'd decide buy in and prize on amount of people in.

I’m interested

Edit: how does winning/losing work? Top half / bottom half every week and best record? Bracket format? Straight up most points?

I haven’t looked at MFL yet, is this an actual format they put out? Or is there self policing involved as far as using players once

re: Playoff Fantasy Football League is a go...sign up here
It looks like there's an option when setting up the league to run it "contest-style" where you can only use a player a set amount of times. That makes it sound like MFL won't give you the option to use a player multiple times if you set it at one and done
