I'll play again next year, but I'm not sure I'm up for a larger buy-in. FFB just has too much luck to it. $20 seems about right.

Yeah, .5ppr really changes the game and really gives value to players that otherwise wouldn't. It's a good scoring format.

Increasing the buy in makes the league much more competitive. When you're competing for big money, players take it serious. A couple people in this league drafted then disappeared. Also, keeper options are a must. But you need a competitive league first.

Also, really looking forward to NFL playoffs this year. It's going to be crazy! Hope the 9ers crush Green Bay this Saturday.

Next year I think I'll run this league. Make a few changes with the point system. Larger buy in and hopefully 12 serious players. Makes it more competitive and fun.

I also play in a dynasty league which is really different and a lot more fun.

Ah Well, Ghorn and I were hoping to get one going next year.

I will play in as many are open and will have me, but I don't check this board that often anymore, so if it comes up def save me a spot.

I am for increasing the buy in as well, the amount of people who drafted and bailed this year was quite frustrating.

That's no problem. You did well in this league all year.

Next year we'll increase the buy in to like $50+ or maybe even $100 and I'll hand select the 12 members in the league. When you have more money invested and the potential to win big money, players are more serious and competitive. On this forum we'll have no problem finding 12 people who want in on a big money league.

Good luck(srs). I think there was a year that was attempted and it didn't work out to well.

What so hard about it?

You set up clear rules to the league before hand. Players pay the buy in or they will not draft and will be replaced. There was way more than 12 people that wanted into this league this year. The people who are serious about FFB and like to play will pay $50+. Those who are not will not. Simple as that really.

Hell, in one of the money leagues I play in every year, if a owner abandons their team or doesn't make line up changes for 2 weeks and ceases communication. The league can vote to remove that owner and have a replacement take over the team as long as they add to the winning pot. We've never needed to do it. But the fact that we can keeps it competitive.

Getting people to commit that much money for entry was the tough part..
So much so the league burger got enough people

Yeah, I think if we did like $50 buy in, it would be perfect. Not too much, but just enough to keep it interesting. It important part is selecting the right 12 owners.

Either way, we'll worry about this in like 8 months. In the meantime, we got some good playoff matches to watch starting tomorrow.
