MMANews Fantasy League
first round of picks is next monday, the 24th
whomever wants to join, post here, and I'll pick names out of a hat or something, for who goes first.
to be fair, I'll go last
two rounds of picks
list you weight class and fighter
fights are on the 29th, and could have rankings up on sunday
post here if you want to play, and invite who ever you want
Down. I'm a fantasy sports junkie. I need my fix.
start doing your homework
I got a few in kind, but I'll be stuck with Kalib going last
I've never done Fantasy MMA before. Can we get a quick explaination of who will be available in the draft?
ya a breakdown of rules and such would be helpful, Im in though. sounds like fun
rules are this
for now, points are scored like this
we each pick at least two fighters in each weight class (active fighters only, if their not fighting, they can't earn you points
win 5 points
ko 4 more
sub 3 more
tko 2 more
decision 1 more
we have 16 right now, so we can have two leagues or one
look for fighters fighting between now and Jan first (if theres a fight card then, it will be the following day or two) or they can't earn you points
trades can happen whenever we want, but you can't pick new fighters until the draft
people with the lowest points get the first picks at draft, point leaders get bragging rights
I'll pick who picks in what order at random, to be fair, I'll pick last
we can add or take away rules at draft time (such as introducing negative points for getting sub'd, ko'd, etc)
after points are earned first, we can bet points on fights
example, if we already had points (I have 10, you have 20), we can bet 10 points or so on who would win an upcoming fight
after awhile, we'll add more rules, as we want them or vote on them (say -10 points for your fighter missing weight, failed drug screen, etc
and active fighter is available, you can pick ken shamrock, but if they aren't fighting, they can't earn you points. UFC, SF, Bamma, Bellator, whoever
it might be easier with 2 leagues (with 16) because the people playing, the fewer fighters to go around.
we dictate the rules, such as this
when we get everyone in, we will vote on one thing
either we can pick any active fighter, or no one (in the same league) can use the same fighter, but we can trade our picks as well
you can trade fighters for points you have, your position in draft picks, etc
all we have to do is vote on if we pick whoever, or no fighter can be used twice in the same league
I also have an idea for a DF (designated fighter) like the DH rule in baseball
in case a fighter gets hurt, you can substitute you DF to earn you points, but only if the one of your fighters can't fight, due to any reason other then missed weight, or substance abuse
your picks cant change without a trade, and you DF is locked in place until draft
but your DF can be any active fighter, and we could all have the same DF, doesn't matter
any more questions, please ask
I hope that was clear enough, but I will explain more if needed
invite whoever you want, and we'll try and get picks going early next week
so plan on getting at least 2 fighters in mind by say wednesday, and a few back ups in case your picks are selected.
remember, if they are not fighting in any pro league by Jan first (or the first draft trade date we agree on) they can't earn you any points
the strategy is to get a lot of points before trade/draft time, so you can pretty much make anyone an offer they can't refuse
plus you want to think long term
Pettis and Guida (for example) fight with more frequency then Silva, and could then get you more points
its all about scoring points, not having P4P champs
go for guys that get a lot of KO's and Sub's, as they will get you more points
where and how do i make my picks?
