SJH, it's that time of year again, yeah?

Can't wait for my usual cycle of flirting with a top-place finish before crashing to the bottom of the table under the weight of hundreds of -4s for panic transfer moves.

I'm in---did the auto pick team until we get a little closer and transfers have been sorted.

I’m back. My typical program is to start off terribly and slowly work my way back to mid-table as people stop actively managing their teams.

Is there a league code yet?

Looks like I'm automatically in it.

I might set up a H2H as well.

Also for something different, my friends and I do a draft league that is similar to your typical fantasy nfl season. I don't think we have any openings but I strongly suggest doing one if you can, I think they are a lot more fun.

I've never done H2H. Any quirks, or as one should expect? Same lineups as classic league, I presume.
Nope, everything runs the same as far as rosters, etc. Obviously, taking a -4 for transfers could hurt a little more in a H2H matchup.

I think I set it up for a 3 week knockout round at end.

Just signed up and doing this for the first time, so I'm sure it can only go smoothly.

It works Emery time.

astride the divide
Club Ruud returns, tail between our collective legs. We stink.

Edit: My goal this season is to put some attention and possibly resources toward the Cup. This was also my intention last year but I mis-read the rules and didn't make any changes the week that contained the qualifying cutoff, thus missing out on the Cup. Sound management over here at Ruud HQ.

Typical start for my team. I had Sterling in as my captain yesterday and decided to swap him out for Sadio Mané, among other ill-advised moves.

There's a game tomorrow, so make sure you adjust early if you need to.

Got email that this is starting back up for the remainder of season. They've made some changes:

  • The remaining season’s fixtures have been allocated new Gameweeks
  • Each new Gameweek is indicated by a ‘+’ (e.g. GW30+, GW31+, GW32+)
  • GW30+ is a double Gameweek starting with two midweek fixtures (AVLSHU and MCIARS) followed by a full round of 10 matches
  • FPL managers can make unlimited free transfers until the GW30+ deadline without playing a wildcard
  • Prices of players will not change until after the GW30+ deadline has passed
  • Any unused Wildcards or chips will remain available for use before the end of the season
  • Triple Captain, Bench Boost and Free Hit chips are available in GW30+

Driving somewhere most likely
Heading into the last matches tomorrow and there is a battle between 1st and 2nd place for the SoSH league and thats about it. Was hoping for my squad to finish top 20 but alas Batshuayi Crazy is again stuck in the mid 20s. Thanks again SJH for setting this up.

Not sure what happened to the H2H league .. was holding my own in the top four and it just .. stopped.

Ditto on the thanks SJH .. really enjoy these leagues.

Oh I am definitely in next season.

Side Rant: I lost my money league by 6 points,, even with Aubameyang captaining me to 32 points the last game week I couldn't close the gap.

Would there be any interest in an 8 team draft, head to head league? I've done that in years past and its a blast. We could play for a small prize, or for free. Draft on zoom etc...

There are some differences in the point systems and transfers. Read here if you're interested.

I’d probably be game.

Is 8 the max number of teams?
