Should we move the league to Fantrax? Most of us on here have multiple leagues on Fantrax already.

The biggest reason to do this is that we can have all our minor league players on our team in a "minors" slot. It sure would save a lot of problems.

I've never used it but I am not opposed to it.

If it's easier, why not

If you've never used it you might need to get used to it... but after a bit you'll love it.

Also, do we want to stick with a roto system or should we go points... or h2h points?

Roto is more reflective of an "overall" winner, but head to head keeps more teams in it.

Only issue is... if an owner is "inactive" it is like a bye week.

i'd say keep it as it stands

Funny, I think Roto is the worst format. Points is the best, provided you have the right scoring system of course.

Meh... I look at it as a marathon. You can hide a crappy week here and there when it comes to head to head. Roto is cradle to grave.

I like both though

Thing is, roto rewards all categories the same. So basically penalty minutes are as valuable as goals. But whatever, it's all good. I've been kinda successful in this league. :smilewinkgrin:

To be clear... I am not arguing one over the other. Like I said... whatever the group wants.

Points would be ok

Should we do an official poll for moving the league, and possible format change?

I use both Fantrax and Yahoo so it doesn't really matter. There is a learning curve but Fantrax does have way more options. I like the rotisserie format so don't mind the status quo.

Been using Fantrax in my other Keeper League (RIP). I find it can be a little temperamental when switching over to a new season.

The biggest factor for me is the ability to have all your prospects on your roster so nobody picks up other people's prospects.

So you should all have received an email invite to the Fantrax league. I say we give it a shot. If people don't like it we can move back to Yahoo.

The league isn't completely set up yet.

Says there's an $80 cost?

Really? I'll have to look at the settings. I thought I picked all the free features.

The current outstanding Premium League fee balance is $79.95. Please pay by Wednesday November 2, 2016 to avoid any service disruption or downgrade to a Standard/Free league.

I think you pay for "Premium". I am sure we are ok with standard.

Yeah I'll look into it tomorrow. Out of town today.

If need be I can pay the premium if people choose to move it.

I'm for doing it on fantrax. Allows us to have minor league players on each roster saving time of going to multiple sites to figure out what players are avail. Also way way easier on the commish.

So, Fantrax will be new to me. Just saw the link. So do I register as new member to the site or is there an invite to a specific league? Or once I register, I'll get the invite?
thanks!

Register for Fantrax then use the invite email to sign up.

That's an extremely generous offer... but I think we can get by without the premium features. Not sure allowing draft picks to be traded is worth 80 bones. We can just track that on here.

Thank you for the offer though.
