Team Position Watch

This is a team needs list. If a team drafts a player from the listed position, this could affect other players at the same position. This player, if of quality, could have a solid impact in fantasy football.

(NP = Will Probably Not Start In 2015)
(MS = May Start In 2015)
(AP? = Depends on Adrian Peterson’s status)

5 Ways To Improve Your Fantasy League

1) Have your draft order determined by non-traditional ways

     a) The winner gets the #1 pick, standings determine draft order

2) Trophies! Trophies! Trophies! 1st Place & Last Place trophy!

     a) Purchase a fantasy football trophy with perpetual base. Only one trophy is needed and it’s passed along to the new champion each year, only need to update a small plaque on the base.

     b) Get a Championship Belt and wear it with pride.

     Add our Championship Photo Plaque so the champion can have a lasting memory of their championship season.

     Last Place: It’s all about humiliation for the loser.

     a) A pink license plate frame that says “I Suck At Fantasy Football”

     b) Have your loser stand on a street corner (make sure it’s very safe), a mall entrance or any other populated area. Make sure they have a humiliating sign with them, maybe had a dress.

     c) Loser must wear a humiliating T-Shirt for a day. Make it a good day. I like the idea of wearing it at an NFL preseason game with some home made signs around him to get some airtime.

3) Stay engaged throughout the year

     a) Join an NCAA Tournament Bracket.

     b) Create a Super Bowl Boxes Pool. Each owner could get equal amounts (nice for 10 team leagues) or have the allotment determined by their fantasy football season. (higher ranked teams get more boxes). Make the payouts worth it. This could makeup for a bad fantasy season.

4) Pre-Draft Activities / Live Draft

     a) Live Drafts are always more fun.

     b) Hold a pre-draft event, a few hours of competitive XBox One or PS4, 18 hole round of golf, 3 games of bowling or any event that will promote trash talking and some adult beverages.
     c) Loser must wear a humiliating T-Shirt for a day. Make it a good day. I like the idea of wearing it at an NFL preseason game with some home made signs around him to get some airtime.

5) Use Free Agent Auction Bidding Instead of Waiver Wire

     With Free Agent Bidding, each teams will have a specific budget with which they can make player acquisitions during the season, and all acquisitions will be processed in batches one or more times each week. If a team would like to add a player, that team will secretly bid a certain amount. On the next waiver process day, the team with the highest amount bid will be awarded the player, and the bid will be subtracted from that team’s budget.
