General Message Board
I've been thinking about this all morning and was looking for some opinions. I took over a team in the keeper league I am in a couple weeks ago. My team is out of the playoffs completely so it's time to just prepare for next season. It is a 14 team league and currently my team is in 12th. The upside to this is the draft order for next year! We all keep 6 players and after making a couple trades since I took over to gear myself for next year my 6 keepers are looking pretty damn nice.
Anyway, in this weekends match-up I thought about tanking the game to have a better draft order. My trying to lose hasn't worked out, lol, and right now I am losing by 5 points. I have Vincent Jackson playing tonight while my opponent is done. If I lose the game I will have the 3rd pick in the draft, while if I win it looks like I will drop to 7th.
We run QB, WR, WR, WR, TE, Flex, K, Def
The only reason I am even thinking about this is because since we all keep 6 players the draft pool will already be watered down, so if I have the 3rd pick then I get a good player but then have to wait another 22 picks to get my second player. If I win and drop to the 7th pick it becomes a more balanced draft order.
Should I tank the game to keep the higher draft pick? lol...
i would do it if i was 12 outta 14 in a league especially when ur in a keeper league that keeps 6 on each squad. im also in a keeper league so i know how hard the draft can be with ppl keeping top notch talent. if ur not in the playoffs thats what i'd do cuz 3rd overall is lot different than 7th. could be crucial
Being that im the Commish of this league i strongly reccommend u dont purposely tank ur team. YES the league has a consolation playoff which u r in. ur team is 10th now outta 14 and could potentially finish the year in 7th. Also tanking ur team DOES have an effect on the resta the league. Teams facing u will basically have a gaurenteed win, which is unfair to the rest of the matchups were all managers r competing to win.
You shouldn't tank the game ever. Your team has ramifications on other playoff bound teams. It's not fair to the league for you not to play the best possible team you can. You need to play Jackson and just let the draft picks fall where they may.
