    Pro Leagues for 2016

    by Joe Feb 10, 2016 4:21 PM

    And the season doesn't start until April and today is 2/10, I think you'll see activity pick up in March assuming the games can still be played for money.

    Well, because I'm closer, I get a ton of news on this NJ/NY pending legislation, what interests me is there is a group, representing cities in the NFL, who want a "subsidy or tax relief" provided because their "cities" are listed as "defenses" in fantasy football. Yes, primarily they want the DK/FD money...I get that, but the language also means Y!, CBS, E$%#, also have to pay...so the impact I'm afraid is going to be quite vast.....and silly! of course, we're talkin governments here...

    Pro Leagues for 2016

    by Joe Feb 10, 2016 4:21 PM

    I think the trepidation regarding PRO leagues is due to the uncertainty of not only Private cash leagues, but also legislatures banning or restricting the ability of ANY pay-to-win games in several states.....and it seems each state has its own definition and solutions in mind.....making it very difficult for Yahoo to "gauge" how many players they can expect and therefore the feasibility of continuing to support these....especially when sponsors are the ones fitting the overhead.

  • hey, I've been back & forth between both the general/Commissioner's boards trying to solve problems with these issues over the last several days. Oscar who monitors these boards, and is associated with Yahoo, has been vital in his assistance.....thanks for listening Oscar, its rare, believe me!
    Test your system: This message has appeared on several places, most of the time on NOTES with your league and in the draft lobby. Only the draft lobby link was working. Yahoo has now fixed the "targets" where it seems these links work universally....so the link in NOTES should work fine.
    New invites: Where there was no problem inviting returning members to leagues, users had found problems inviting NEW users to their leagues by way of simply adding their e-mail address. There were several causes for this, but the most primary was the use of Safari browser....it didn't seem to work at all. There is a ? whether this is tied to the ability to use Flash, which is a plug-in on most browsers (also called an extension). If your browser restricts or your device is not flash-capable, this will not work either...the way to see is to use a different browser (edge, chrome, firefox, opera, etc...) if it works on a different browser, the LIKELY problem was the Safari browser, and lack of Flash. if a different browser nets the same result as Safari, then your device (phone/tablet) restricts Flash and this will not work as well.
    The MAIN thing to remember is this, any device that uses an app, is bound to have certain restrictions, and the functionality of this is more of a "lite" version of what you have the ability to do on a PC, some Macs ALSO have these limitations....so whenever possible and given a choice, always try these functions on a PC.

  • Has the amount of interest in season long Pro Leagues drastically diminished this season? I have registered for a few leagues over the next 6 weeks and none are even close to filling up. Is it just that I have signed up early or do you think Pro Leagues might be a thing of the past due to DFS? Curious for your opinions... Thanks

  • This a 5th year 12 team keeper league with large rosters, no waivers, 3 dl spots, no limits on trades, no keeper limits, offence oriented head to head league. if interested send your email and I will send you an invitation. we have 3 teams available. we are looking for active and competitive managers that want to continue their dynasty teams for years to come

    One of the bills requires the vendor(Yahoo!, Draft Kings, Fan Duel, etc) to pay 500K to the state for the license/permit to operate in the state of Florida and put up a $1 million dollar surety bond So even if the bill is passed into law, vendors may not want to allow play in FL if they don't like the rules, restrictions and fees required for them to do business there.

    Do a search on 'Fantasy sports bills advance through House, Senate committees' you'll find an article in the Jacksonville paper on this topic.

  • 15 team FREE league, same 10 core owners for a decade... looking for at least one replacement owner.

    We keep just 2 players - so there are only 30 players tied up from year to year, which makes each draft exciting. We've experimented with higher numbers of keepers, but we discovered that the more keepers we allowed, the less player movement there was between teams.

    We have 10 active hitter slots (C/1B/2B/3B/SS/OF/OF/OF/UTIL/UTIL), 5 SP slots and 2 RP slots each day, and 22 man rosters (so, 5 bench players). There is a 162-game limit for the 10 hitter positions, and a 1250 IP limit (which equates to 5.5 SP @ 200 IP plus 2 RP @ 75 IP - so you can't stream your way to victory, in other words, you really have to build your roster in order to succeed.

    Here is the point system - it's tried and true, and it's meant to reward all positive AND negative contributions proportionately (so there are no ridiculous "10 points for a shutout" wild cards). The best hitters in the league get the most points, as do the best SP and RP -- and the season point totals for a Miguel Cabrera are very much in line with those of a Clayton Kershaw. I sometimes look at other leagues that are posted on the yahoo boards, and IMHO nobody has a point system that even comes CLOSE to ours:

    Batters Stat Category Value Pitchers Stat Category Value At Bats (AB) -.25 Runs ® 1 Hits (H) 2.25 Doubles (2B) 1Triples (3B) 2 Home Runs (HR) 3 Runs Batted In (RBI) 1 Stolen Bases (SB) 1 Caught Stealing (CS) -.5 Walks (BB) 2 Hit By Pitch (HBP) 2 Strikeouts (K) -.5 Ground Into Double Play (GIDP) -.75 Innings Pitched (IP) 5.25 Wins (W) 8 Losses (L)-5 Saves (SV) 8 Hits (H) -2 Earned Runs (ER) -1 Home Runs (HR) -2 Walks (BB) -2 Hit Batters (HBP) -2 Strikeouts (K)0.5 Holds (HLD) 2 Blown Saves (BSV) -2

    That is good news. Any chance it could pass soon enough to have Yahoo allow FL residents to sign up before the season?

    Seeking out a Fantasy league..My Pet Peeve..

    I think part of the "problem" is due to security issues, Yahoo doesn't permit direct posting of web links and/or e-mail addresses. So users have to be savvy in order to post and get around these "bots". I find that when this is done, I'll duplicate or add a character that wasn't intended....and I end up responding to the wrong address because I typed it incorrectly. Understand this is done for the protection of ALL users, and is not meant to hinder active recruiting into leagues. Since the old League ID/password system was scrapped a number of years ago, leagues are intended to be for "invite only". How to invite those you don't know or have like interests with is entirely up to you, but the tools to seek your yahoo history and invite members you shared membership with in a league is a great place to start. Once your in leagues a couple of years maxing out your ID, can build several prospective recruits/members.

    I have a couple of leagues that are looking for new managers. Both H2H, one no keepers, one very few (haven't quite decided yet). Most of the members have been in them since their first year or two. extavernmouse here on the big y.
