2017 New Rules

Hey everyone! The season is upon us. I will be posting your match ups here on www.whutzzat.com/tff. 

A couple new rules to go over quickly. We seem to experience and learn something new every year and we evolve accordingly. 

First, this year we will be changing how we handle forgetting to set or save lineups. In previous years we left it up to the opponent whether or not they wanted to allow the person to set an afternoon lineup. While this worked, it was a pain in the butt to deal with and had the potential to backfire. For example, lets say Gabe forgot to set his lineup and Joe allows him to set an afternoon lineup. Awesome, it all worked out. However if Joe then forgot to set a lineup against Carlos in a future week, his prior good deed is meaningless with it now being up Carlos as to whether or not Joe can set a lineup. So this year if you forget to set or save your lineup it is a loss, however I will let you know and if you respond to my text I will set up an afternoon match so you can still accumulate tie breaker points toward the end of the season. These points can be the difference between a playoff spot and just missing it so if you screw up at least take advantage of this offer. THE BEST WAY TO AVOID THIS THOUGH IS TO JUST MAKE SURE YOU SET YOUR LINEUP AND DOUBLE CHECK THAT YOU SAVED IT. TEXT ME AFTER YOU SET YOUR LINEUP EACH WEEK AND I WILL CONFIRM THAT IT IS SET.


The second change this year is regarding lineup optimization tools. You are welcome to use these tools if you so choose however if the tool you use offers a "base" or "recommended" lineup you cannot flat out copy it. Your lineup must be at least 33% different, that's three of the nine players. Naturally, this is a difficult one to monitor. I know of a few sites that offer these tools and will monitor them weekly, however the honor system will come into play here. I trust each and every one of you guys, so please play with the integrity I know you all have. This one will be dealt with on a case to case basis, however if it becomes obvious someone is breaking this rule and I've already spoken to them, it will result in a loss.

2017 Updates

I am happy to help any of you that need help however if you do need help please contact me before Sunday. If you call me Sunday morning 10 minutes before the games start with no clue how to set your lineup you may be screwed, and potentially take a loss. So please hit the website and set it before Sunday, then double check Sunday morning. I cannot guarantee you that I can set aside time to help you Sunday morning before the games start so as an official notice: If you need help, or have questions or problems let me know by Saturday Night (if there is a Saturday game, do it by Friday). You can always go back and change your lineup before the games start. 


Last year we had an issue where someone did not save their lineup when they finished, as a result come game time they didn't have a lineup set. While this is NOT mandatory, and may not be necessary for some, I would HIGHLY recommend each of you text me after you set your lineup and I will confirm it is set. If you choose not to do this and forget to save your lineup you will take a loss for the week. 


If you haven't paid me yet, the money is due by August 30th. Please make sure you pay me on or before that date, its frustrating for both of us to be in a situation where I am hitting you up for money. Its awkward, you are one of my close friends, lets not be awkward close friends. We are past the point of no return so since you all have verbally committed to the league, please follow through. I cannot find a replacement this close to the start of the season.


Remember the group text should only be used for texts relevant to the league, send your memes to people individually.


Last year was a blast guys, let's make it happen again. Good luck this season everyone and like I said if you need to contact me for help or anything else, don't hesitate to ask and do it before Sunday. You can call, text or email me: Reefguy88@gmail.com

Structure and Rules

The structure this year will combine traditional fantasy football with Fanduel style. Each week you will draft a new line up based on the Fanduel values and structure.
Each week you will face off against one of the other players in the league. The player with the most points in each matchup will earn a victory for the week, while the loser gets a loss. Who you play any given week will be based on a round robin style system ensuring everyone plays each other. After 16 weeks, playoffs will begin. The 6 players with the best records will go on to the playoffs. If there is a tie in records, the tie breaker will be based on win/loss percentage of the matches between only the tied players. If the players are still tied the tie will be broken by counting the total number of points scored throughout the entire season. If more than 2 players are tied together, it will go directly to points. The player that accumulates the most points will break the tie and move on to the playoffs. Week 17 will be the quarter finals, 3rd vs 6th playing and 4th vs 5th playing. 1st and 2nd place will have a bye week. Wildcard Week will be the semi finals where the winners of the quarter finals will play vs 1st and 2nd.  Divisional Playoff Week will be the Super Bowl where the two winning players of the semi finals compete for the 1st prize. The losers from the semi finals will play for 3rd.
With 12 players first place will take home $850, 2nd takes home $250 and 3rd takes home $100.
There are a few quick rules I want to go over:
1. No sharing line ups before the games start on Sunday.
2. Each week your match up will be posted on this site. Make sure you only enter the match with your name on it. You will see a match up for 3 players. I am putting myself in each match up so I can keep track of Win/Loss, points, and making sure both players join. My score will only matter against the person I am actually matched against for the week.
3. If you fail to set a line up by 10am pacific1pm eastern. You will forfeit the week and take a loss.
Each week I will post current records and standings on this part of the site. The current week will be posted on this page, while information for previous weeks can be found off to the right.
This website technically does not belong to me so please do not post in other portions of the site.
