One of our members (Starkly, his 2nd year) posted the question below in our forum. Its such a common question, I wanted to share it with our readers.The Original PostAs the title says I have the first pick in a 12 team league. We also have a couple of new scoring rules which are friendly to QBs who have 300+ & 400+ games. Plus our Flex allows any OP so last year I mostly had a QB in that spot which allowed fielding two QBs most weeks.As I ran through my first draft pick position options fo [..]

Sometimes when setting your fantasy football starting lineup, you'll come to a position where you just can't decide who to pencil in.

Many fantasy football leagues that play for money have a payout like 80% for the league champion winner and 20% for the runner up.

For most fantasy leagues, the time after the Super Bowl until about June is downtime. Sure, dynasty leagues will be humming and some hard non-dynasty core leagues might have some sort of activity going on.

Should you avoid having risky fantasy football players on your roster? The answer is no, not completely, but you should avoid relying on too many such players regularly. It is ok to have one or two players on your roster that are high-risk but that offset their inherent riskiness with potential for giving you high returns. Fantasy football teams that rely on many risky players often experience wildly fluctuating production. They may have one or two weeks when the team explodes and puts up hu [..]

By late in the fantasy football season, many leagues start to quiet down. This is party because of league deadlines for waiver transactions and trades, but also partly due to owners that have lost interest in running their teams.There are a few things commissioners can do to keep owners interested and engaged. However, it is also incumbent on an owner to do a few things even late in the season and when out of contention:Owners still must refrain from cheating. No matter how you feel, throwing [..]

Economic progress, in capitalist society, means turmoil.-Joseph A. Schumpeter Many fantasy football owners and commissioners would say that in fantasy football, a team's success often means turmoil, especially when concerning trades. Frequently owners not involved in a trade will have a hissy fit -- sometimes justifiably so, but usually without cause. Fortunately, there are some ways to decrease the friction that often accompanies fantasy football trades.1) Consider appointing a co-commish who [..]

"Man, every time I start Joe Zero he hardly gives me any points! Argh!""Gosh, is Mike Sprain ever going to play this season?" Most fantasy football owners are familiar with those refrains; situations where a player continually flops or is always hurt can make you wonder if you should release them or not. Often it's tough to know when to release a player from your fantasy football squad, even when they will miss many weeks due to injury or are consistently performing poorly. Usually what makes [..]

Just like like the St. Louis Cardinals' triumph over the Texas Rangers in Game 6 of the 2011 World Series showed, a contest isn't over until it's over. Never quit until you are mathematically eliminated. Also, never think you've got a contest or a season in the bag. I've seen huge leads evaporate. I've seen official NFL stat changes a couple days after the week's slate of games change the outcomes of fantasy football contests (remember Kurt Warner's reversed TD pass a couple seasons back?)

A growing trend in fantasy football is the daily fantasy football league (sometimes called a salary cap league), the little brother to traditional season-long fantasy football leagues. You can join a daily fantasy football league at places such as Snapdraft.com or Fantasy Sports Live.com. Unlike traditional fantasy football leagues, where you draft a team and then keep much of that same roster for the entire season (or even longer in keeper and dynasty leagues), in daily leagues you keep that [..]

If you're the commish of a fantasy football league that is starting to suffer from owners losing interest, here are some things to consider implementing (if not mid-season, at least next year):Loser's Playoff Bracket -- Consider implementing a loser's bracket (aka, consolation bracket or toilet bowl). Have that bracket actually play for more than pride -- maybe a draft pick, a trophy, or small monetary prize.In-season elimination game -- Entice the owners to keep coming to the league by picking [..]

I have written previously about factoring strength of schedule into your fantasy football drafting, lineup, and roster decisions. Here is the best SoS tool I've found; it's located at FF Today. Make sure you consult it each week, as the stats changes as the season progresses.

Week 4 of the fantasy football season is pivotal. Go 0-4 or even 1-3 and your chances of making the playoffs take a big hit.What can you do to staunch the bleeding if you're doing poorly so far? First, review your entire roster, including commonly overlooked positions like TE, K, and Defense. See if there are players on waivers or in free agency that you could sign that would improve those spots. Don't cling to players based on name recognition! Especially consider dumping a disappointing d [..]

Week 2 of the 2011 fantasy football season is in the books and so are a lot of injuries, some of which are major (e.g., Jamaal Charles, RB Kansas City, is out for the season with a torn ACL).This serves to pound home how important it is to have depth on your team, especially at RB, WR, and QB, so you can weather injuries and the dreaded bye weeks. You need to not only draft wisely but constantly re-evaluate your team and scour the waiver wire for improvements at every spot. RBs drop like flies [..]
