Oilers Rotisserie league

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anybody here would be interested in joining a rotisserie league?  It's a bit different than the fantasy leagues.  You pick your players in a draft format, and for each position played you collect points for each category, and it gets weighted against all other teams in the league to arrive at your totals for each day... there's a trick though, each position is only allowed a certain number of appearances per season so you have to watch your games played closely.  The great thing about this type of league is you play against everybody on every night, and you can have unlimited numbers of teams in it.

I'll be happy to start one up if we get any interest, they are Yahoo ones just like the other fantasy leagues so it will be easy peasy.  I'll put my name in the hat as one who would like to join first ;)

@bronco73

I'm not sure I understand this statement though. I understand that rotisserie leagues involve non-cumulative scoring, with the idea of as much as possible holding the leads in categories until the end of the season, which is what got me interested in the first place.

I'm unsure about your statement that I quoted, as I didn't find the mention of any limitation on position appearances in the yahoo rules.

Hey bronc, just clicked on the link you provided and it recognized me (from the other pools I presume?) so it looks like I'm in there. They even gave me a team name.... "Kdawg's Nifty Team" LOL. I'm gonna stick with it for now haha.

*I'll have to dig into the rules as well, this is a new format for me?! Looks like a standard league as opposed to banger at first glance.

Maybe we can get those that are on waiting lists for other pools in here too, we can learn together.:P

Edit) btw love the avi bronc. #HumboldtStrong indeed.

every roster position has a limited number of games that can be played, usually it's set at 82.  So, looking at just the center position... In our league we have 3 center positions.  at 82 games per, you are allowed to play a total of 246 games at center.  You can sub in as many players as you wish on a nightly basis throughout the season, but once your team has played 246 games at the center position your stats will no longer be tallied.

Every night your team page shows you how many games over or under "par" you are at each position, and it also tells you how many you have remaining.  So let's say you are at 160 games played at center, and on this night you play 3 centers.  Your total games played then goes up to 163 of your total 246.

We got a potential triple header on our hands on the 30th! Haha, bring it!

do you think we could ask a few managers from the other leagues in their threads if they'd be interested?

is this a 3rd league? whats rotisserie?

 

Yep, it's a third league. In rotisserie, you basically play against everyone in the league at once. You get a specific number of points for each stat column based on your ranking within the league (I.e. in an 8 team, you would get 8 points for leading a specific stat column, but only 1 point if you are last in a column). The standings are then based on total amount of points accumulated.

The 2 leagues keep me busy enough, but if you really need someone i can

well the more managers we can get, the better off it will be.  This is a trial this year to see how people like the rotisserrie style league, so ya if we can get a full compliment it would make the trial run better.
