Each week you face another team from the league. I believe there are 9 "scoring" criteria that gauge your players' performance throughout the week.
Whomever wins the most categories based off those points each week gets the "win" over your opponent. (eg, if you win 5 categories, he wins 4, you beat him and notch a "win" in the standings, he gets a loss).
We got two divisions right now, and I think 8 teams make playoffs, with top seeds, etc. That's of course based off how you rank in your division based off those wins/losses.
You can drop a player from your team and pick up another from "free agency"/waiver whenever; I think 4 moves like that are allowed per week. And you can change your lineup whenever you like, daily, rotating around guys already on your team; as long as a player on your roster hasn't already begun that day's game, you can bench him and replace him with someone from your bench or team whenever you'd like.
hey dudos! just keeping this thread alive, this is my first fantasy league ever, and now that i've gotten the hang of it, it's a total blast, and i'm having a great match against Ronoranina's Multiple Scorgasms (ha!) that will probably go down to the wire, unless Chrispaul just puts me away.
I notice a lot of you are not substituting on a daily basis, thus not giving it your all with what you've got. If you pay attention to your daily team, this will be a great league for all involved. I'd like to see everyone do their best, even when the Knicks are blowing hard, it's fun to see your players do well in their respective games.
If anyone wants help, feel free to private message me, it only took me a couple days to get it together; I think I've made a couple good moves as well as a few stupid adds/drops, but I didn't personally draft, so I have myself to blame.
I'm also looking to upgrade at PF/C and SG, so I'm open to trades, if anyone's looking for a decent PG.
good luck to everyone, have a happy new year, go Knicks go!
Cool F*cking Clyde
This is a nice match up and it's been that way because we've been active. I want the rest of them to be as good.
Get active guys!!
Peace and Happy New Year,
Yeah I'm one of the quilty ones. My bad guys. Been caught up but now I'm on my grind. Byw the scoring in this league is odd to me. Someone wanna explain?
Yeah can someone say exactly what scoring criteria are?
Is it those 9 that show up when you look at the head 2 head matchup? So whoever is higher in each category wins (or lower in the case of "attempted" and turnovers)?
I really don't understand it.
Each night your guys go out and accumulate stats in various categories, points, assists, rebounds, steals, blocks etc. The points garnered based on performance you had of each player that actually played that night, that you also had starting (which is key obviously) are added up and you either win on a given night or lose based on that total. At the end of the match up period, which you should see at the top of the match up grid, who ever has the highest total based on each nights performance wins the match up. Then you move on to play someone else.
This why it's imperative that you get your lineups straight everyday. If you have guys in your "seven" that have the night off you WILL NOT accumulate points in those slots. The first night of the season I had guys starting that didn't have a game at the two and SF, with Jason Terry and Shawn Marion sitting when they had games and it cost me dearly. Clyde got out to a huge lead. Had me wanting to quit LOL. But I stuck with it and it's been alot of fun.
This is my understanding of how the league works. Perhaps someone else can add more or correct me if I'm off on something. Hope this helps..
The other problem is I totally didn't realize you could change add/drop players so frequently and swap your lineup round day to day. I've only played fantasy football where it's a weekly thing. That's why I took B Davis and Iman in the draft so they could be useful to me later if someone went down injured, but in fact they are totally useless until they are playing and wasted picks

why would the total match up score not matter? what the hell is the point of that?
I've had difficulty actually using the sliders to swap players. I don't know if it's my computer, or what? It makes me hemorrhage.
I thought drafting Tyreke Evans was a decent call, but the dude is smelly. Love to trade him! Between him and Jimmer I've got 2 Sacramento sacs that suck the sac.
I was frowned upon for drafting Kevin Love with the 2nd pick, but he's been awesome for me. I can also proudly say that I don't have any Boston or Miami ringworms on my team, and am doing rather tidily between Nene and Gay, Love.
I'll trade you Jimmer for your best player and some hooker spit.
Seriously though, I need some help @ the 2.
Who wants to talk transactions?
every day you have a 7 man team, consisting of PG, SG, PF, SF, 2 x C and 1 utility player (can be any position). each day, you want to fill those positions with your best players who are actually playing that day, in those respective positions. some players are PG/SG, or PF/C, so they can fill either role, and so on.
also, pay attention to when a player is injured and not playing (you'll see a little red medical + next to his name), and fill his position with someone else. each day, you should change your team to fill each position, and SUBMIT CHANGES.
you are allowed to add/drop 4 players per week, and you can trade with other teams aside from that. add/drops don't take effect until a day later.
the accumulation of points, rebounds, assists, steals and blocks earns fantasy points and turnovers take away points (damn you Metta World Peace and your -6 performance).
the team with most points at the end of the week wins the matchup.
good luck fellas, and happy new year!
