NFL FANTASY GRIDIRON (AMERICAN FOOTBALL) 2016/17 (Season Long Rules)


#1

OKAY peoples - this is my favourite NFL fantasy game so every year really try to push this so please if you do decide to enter one more fantasy NFL money game please make it this one. This is a game Dougie (aka McBear) and myself (aka bluelionman) put an awful lot of work into running. However this season we are so late because in past years we took our player values from the NFL UK salary cap game but at the last moment we see the news that they were not running the game this year - leaving us with less than a week to make up our own players list and values. With so many other games and drafts going off plus work getting in the way I failed on this. However I have decided to still press ahead for this year by allowing entries up until the start of NFL Week 2 (Thursday 15th September) with points being back dated to include all NFL Week 1 games. This is a strange decision you might think but to make the history be comparable year on year to past years in my recorded history wanted a complete season long game. So consider NFL Week 1 an extra chance to scout out your picks before submitting your entry and know your get any points they score this week to boot. However all entries and payment for them must be received by me before the first game of NFL Week 2 - after which a full list of all team entries will be sent to everyone before the bulk of NFL Week 2 games start on the Sunday (18th September).

##NFL FANTASY GRIDIRON 2016/17 (American Football)

This game is a resurrection of the now defunct ‘First Down’ American Football newspaper fantasy football game. So will be familiar to those of you that used to play that publications fantasy NFL football game back in the day!

However unlike that game this version runs for the entire NFL season (from September 8th, 2016 thru to the Super Bowl final on February 5th, 2017).

The cost of entry will be £15 per team which will go to make up the prize fund.
£10 from each entry fee will go to make up the 1st prize and £5 to the 2nd prize.
So it’s simple - the more entrants the bigger the 2 prizes.
Entry fee can be paid to me in cash (if you see me in person) or via cheque (e-mail me for address to send it to).

Alas I can no longer use PayPal as they have limited my a/c for breaking their rules using it to allow people to enter my games. :frowning:

HOW TO PLAY

All you have to do is pick a team of players from the list provided following this link:

NFL Gridiron Game players list - 2016/17

However you must stay within the budget of $48 Million. Just create your team by filling in the form at the end of this e-mail and send it to me before the deadline which is the start of the first game of NFL Week 2 - (Thursday 15th September). The system is simple. You must select one Quarter-Back, two Running Backs, one Tight End, two Wide Receivers, a Kicker, a Head Coach and a Team Defense.

Anyone who scores a touchdown gets six points, just like the real thing. If a *Quarterback throws a touchdown pass he also scores three points. If anyone returns a fumble or an interception for a TD then the Defense scores six, they also score two for a safety. Kickers get three points for a field goal and one for extra points (PAT’s - Point After Touchdown‘s), while anyone scoring a two-point conversion scores two points. If a *QB throws a two-point pass he scores an additional one.

*Also any other player who acts as a QB and throws a TD pass or two-point conversion will also score the relevant QB throwing points. For example a Kicker or Running Back on trick plays.

Head Coach scoring

Your Head Coach will score three points for every game his team wins and one point for any game that finishes as tied in the regular season. However Head Coach’s will score 6 points for post season wins.

Also Head Coach’s will earn a bonus of 6 points if their team makes the playoffs. This bonus is doubled (to 12) if your coach is your original HC and you have not changed him at all since the commencement of the game. Only the HC on your teams roster at the end of the regular season (WK 17) qualifies for the bonus points (if applicable) and these points are added to the Head Coach’s score for Week 17. Also a further bonus of 6 points is awarded to each Head Coach that wins their division - this bonus is awarded and applied to all applicable Head Coach’s in Week 17 (However please note - there is no doubling up of this bonus for original HC’s).

Additionally in this game (different from how from First Down’s was) Defenses will incorporate special teams plays - so all punt and kick off returns that go for a TD will earn 6 points for the relevant Defense.

Finally points will be doubled for the final itself (the Super Bowl).

Scores will be worked out using the official stats on the NFL’s website (nfl.com).

Every entrant will be sent an e-mail listing everyone’s teams after the start of NFL Week 2’s games (September 15th) but before the bulk of Week 2’s games on the Sunday night (September 18th). This is so you can see everything is open and above board, as well as allowing you to follow the season more closely on TV and via the internet, if you so choose. (You’ll even be able to work out the team points for yourself should you like to).

A weekly league chart will be made up and sent via e-mail along with each teams individual player scores for that week so you can see how you are doing compared to your rivals.

TRADES - You can trade up to three player/positions at each trade window. Your team’s value still cannot exceed $48 million after you have traded. You do not have to trade, your team can remain the same from start to finish. However you must submit your trade(s) before the start of the following weeks games by e-mail to me at this address :- blmfantasygames@hotmail.co.uk. Please make sure you put NFL Trades in the subject header line. Updated team line up e-mails will be distributed to everyone ASAP after the trade deadlines.

There are 3 trade windows during the season, they are:-

between Weeks 6 and 7 (trades will take effect from Thur. Oct. 20th 2016)
between Weeks 11 and 12 (trades will take effect from Thur. Nov. 24th 2016)
&
Between the end of the Regular Season and the start of the Playoffs
(trades will take effect from Sat. January 7th 2017)

So that’s it - BEST OF LUCK - Noel (aka bluelionman)

I think the salary cap might be a bit too tight from the looks of it Noel,

Last years game players had a maximum value of $4 and a cap of $18 with 9 spots, so average is $2 each.

Now you’ve got players up to 4-6 times the original cost (Top end QB’s/WR’s 24, RB’s/TE’s 16) while the cap is only 2 2/3rds higher. Makes it nigh on impossible to fill a team that isn’t just full of bargin players with no good ones.

I.e. can’t afford to spend half your budget on an Odell Beckham type because you’ve got to spend a minimum of 20 on the other 8 positions.


#3

I did double checked some old First Down’s I had first before setting prices and this is how it was before I just started using NFLUK’s prices and cap. The skill and luck now comes from picking the right blend and if you go for a superstar you need surround with cheap players. Same for everyone but if you have an old First Down do check out their fantasy game and your see my prices are in keeping with what they did. & this game is homage to theirs.


#4

I don’t have any of the old first downs, I’ve only ever played your version with the NFLUK pricing (which i know isn’t available anymore) but I thought it had a good balance of pricing/cap.

I think the problem is that there is no flexibility, you’ve only got the option of filling a whole team with fairly cheap players if you want a chance to get under the cap. I tried creating one and I’d stuck in an fairly average lineup I thought HC(4)/QB(12)/RB(12)/RB(8) before I was left with 12 to try and add another 5 players and it just didn’t feel fun scraping the bottom of the barrel for over half my roster when I hadn’t even picked any superstar type guys.

Have you constructed a lineup yet?


#5

Yes but not happy with it so be looking at rejigging it tonight but no matter what way you cut it will have cheapies in it and if you do have a Superstar he damn well better score every week but you win or loose on ya talent spotting new value picks. Spend the budget wisely - injuries are a killer.


#6

Okay people as the deadline I set was for start of NFL Week 2 am posting my team here - no edits so everyone can see I am open and transparent before I get an e-mail out to all entrants with everyone’s teams before bulk of NFL Week 2 games start Sunday night.

Well we have another brand new winner of the season long version of this game - congratulations Barry Jenkinson - I will be in touch imminently to sort out your winnings. As I will the runner-up - Dale Elleray. A big thank you goes to all of you who played this year - those of you who did not please think about doing this game next year as it’s great fun and does not require a lot of your time over the season to play. It is by far my favourite non draft type on-line fantasy NFL game bar none!

Next years players prices are already set (with a formula for the rookies that get added to the players list prior to start of the season) and can be viewed here:
