Asked: What is fantasy football?
I'm a boy from Norway who recently have started to love fotball, but what is fantasy football?
Asked: How do I make it up to this fantasy football team?
We had a rule that you couldn't drop and add players. I forgot to check if anyone made a transaction so i could reverse it based off the rule, so Team A made a transaction. Team A didn't know this rule and added a RB. The points from the RB won the game for A over B. I didn't know what to do so I added points to team B so that they would win, and I allowed team A to keep the RB. It doesn't feel like enough for Team A though. How else can I make Team A happier?
Asked: *Fantasy Football* Which trade would be the best for me?
I'm giving up:
Hakeem Nicks or Steve Johnson
My other potential trade is giving up:
I'm looking to get a better RB and I don't need any of the players I would be trading away.
Asked: Yahoo Fantasy Football-should I try for a trade or ride it out?
This is only my second year and I'm in a 10 team league.I'm tied for 1st place with 5 teams 1 game back. This is the lineup;
WR Jordy, Decker,Gordon,Gibson,Shorts- Looking to drop gibson
Thinking of offering Ryan and Gonzales for starting RB and 3/4 wr.
What do you think ?
Asked: SmartTrade? Fantasy Football?
Was this a smart trade for me?
We play QB, RB, RB, RB/WR,WR, WR, WR, WR, TE, TE, D/st, K
So my previous typical team was
RB: Adrian peterson
RB: Michael Turner
RB/WR: Fred Jax (picked him up after some1 dropped due to injury)
WR: Calvin Johnson
WR: Percy Harvin
WR: Reggie Wayne
TE: Heath Miller
Bench: Steve Smith, B. Hartline, Alex Green, joe flacco, chargers d, vick ballard, mikel leshoure, kenny britt
The trade was:
I sent: Calvin Johnson, Michael Turner, Mikel Leshoure, Phillip Rivers
I received: Alfred Morris, Matthew Stafford, and Brandon Lloyd
I figured i was pretty decent at WR even without c.j, he has been getting bracketed and double teamed and production is low (MADDDDENNN CURRRRRSE!) and i dont think turner is a good rb and has seen a decrease in carries..
i figured the trade is Morris for Johnson, and thus far Morris has been a top 5 RB.. I know some people will tell me im dumb for trading johnson, but i think some people will make me feel better about this trade. k. thanks
Asked: Tips for fantasy football?
Just wanted to share some advice for fantasy football.
#1 – Dont start players based on their name. Just because its a big name does not mean its an automatic start. Perfect example is Calvin Johnson last night. I bet 95% of people started him. But they should have known that Charles Tillman would cover him. And Tillman can easily shut him down because hes done that many times before. You need to look at the mathups. Do not start RB's who are playing teams like Bears, Vikings, Patriots…Good run defenses will stop good RB's, no matter how good they are. Same with WR and QB's. Do not start them against good pass defenses. People often start players without even looking at what team they are playing against, thats a big mistake.
#2 – Try getting a QB and a WR from the same team. This is the most overlooked trick in fantasy football. And it is very effective. You can pick up double points on the same play when you have a QB and WR from the same team. Example: If you have Aaron Rogers and Jordy Nelson. When Rogers throws a 50 yards TD to Nelson you will get credit for Rogers 50 passing yards and his TD and you will also get Nelsons 50 receiving yards and his TD. You got credit for 2 TDs when in reality there was only really one TD scored.
#3 – Do NOT start 2 WR's from the same team. This is always a bad idea. If you happen to have Roddy White and Julio Jones, both from the Falcons and you start both of them there is no way they will both have good games at the same time. When one guy does good its because the other guy is not getting any receptions. Its almost impossible for both players to have alot of receptions, yards and TD's in the same game.
#4 – Kickers are more important than you think. A good kicker can you get you some much needed points. Most people do not care about kickers. But they are important at times. Try and get kickers on teams that do not have good offenses. Teams that have trouble scoring TD's usually rely on field goals for points, that means more points for their kicker.
#5 – Always check your team on Sunday morning. Make sure nobody is listed as "Injured" or "Questionable". The last thing you want to do is start a player who does not play. Thats a quick zero points and that will hurt. Even if you think the player "might" play, do not start him. Because even if he plays he will not play at 100% and its just not worth the risk.
#6 – Team defenses dont always mean the best overall defense. Turnovers are the key to team defense in fantasy leagues. Even if a team gives up 30 points you can still get good points out of them if they get a couple INTs, a fumble or two, and some sacks. The Patriots are a good example of this. They put up decent fantasy points even though their defense is not good in reality. Because they get sacks and tunrovers which equals points in fantasy leagues.
#7 – The single most important position in fantasy football is ALWAYS RB. Make sure you stock up on RB's. They get hurt often but you need to have them. If you have a "Flex" spot on your roster you always want to put a starting RB in that position. A starting RB will usually get more points than a random WR.
Hope this helped. Anyone else have some tips for fantasy football?
Asked: Fantasy Football Lineup Outlook?
My team currently is supposed to get 127 points, compared to the other teams' 50-70 points. Here's ma lineup————————-> QB- Aaron Rodgers

RB- M Leshoure
WR- K Britt
TE- J Tamme
