    Discussion CFL Fantasy Football 2018

    With the new CFL season just days away, I figured it was time for a new fantasy football thread.

    If you played last year, all you have to do is log-in again and you will automatically be added back into any joined leagues, including our Esksfans group.

    If you didnít play last year, I highly recommend it! Whether youíre very serious about it or just doing it for fun, itís quite a blast! (Until your qb gets injured on the first play and throws a pick netting you minus points....cough Jennings cough)

    Ive included the link to join the Esksfans group if you didnít join last year. Good luck everyone!

    When am I ever going to learn to leave Reilly on my team? He is always on my first draft but then I decide to upgrade elsewhere by downgrading at qb.

    The new PPR points this year salvaged a bad game for Gable. He got 5 points for his 5 receptions, even though they were for only 3 yards (0.3 points).

    For those looking for some tips when setting your roster, make sure to check TSN.ca.

    Derek Taylor and Chris Schultz are doing a bunch of weekly segments dedicated to fantasy football.

    Re: CFL Fantasy Football 2018

    In 2017 under the name of Balticfox I kicked butt in TSN CFL Fantasy! I finished 62nd overall but I topped a number of sub-leagues including these big ones:

    TSN 1040 Vancouver 1/196
    TSN 1050 Toronto 1/178
    The Angry Birds 1/133
    TSN 690 Montreal 1/96
    2017 CFL All-Stars 1/45
    Blue Bombers 1/41

    Well I'm back to both defend my titles this year and to add a few more straps around my mid-section! But if you think you can beat a sly old fox at his own game, here's a Fantasy League I've created for old-time Eskimo fans:

    Ol' Spaghetti Legs



    Here's a League for those of Baltic ancestry:

    Balticboys



    And here's a League for those hailing from London (even the one from across the pond):

    London Lords

    I'm bewildered at Jackie Parker's lack of following on this forum.





    I would have thought more posters would want to join a Fantasy League named in his honour:

    Re: CFL Fantasy Football 2018

    I made a late switch last week from Mercer Timmins to Marcus Thigpen and it proved a mistake. It was musical chairs in the Tiger-Cats' backfield every bit as much as in the Roughriders backfield but Timmins somehow found his way into the end zone twice despite rushing for only thirteen yards in total. The switch therefore cost me 9.6 points. Worse yet I'd thought hard of picking Chris Williams as my FLEX player but ended up going with Thigpen.



    After three weeks undervalued alternatives are getting a lot more difficult to find. Moreover I now have stronger preferences for certain position players which makes allocating my $40,000 more difficult in a lot of ways.

    I am going with Thigpen and Logan. Gotta find a way to get Walker, REilly and Williams on my roster. Sinopli is my wildcard pick this week. Not huge numbers but he's just asking for a breakout game.

    I stacked Trev Harris with Ellingson and Spencer and those two guys proceeded to drop everything while Sinopoli put up a career high.

    Forgot to set my line up for Thursday and Friday games so I loaded up on the two Saturday games. Let’s hope that strategy pays off!!!

    Seriously. Made my picks on Wed & chose Sutton & Sinopoli. Changed to Ellingson & Gable in Thursday.

    These “hmmm on second thought” changes have hurt me this season. Every. Single. Week.

    Five weeks in a row I've seriously hurt my score with late "second thought" changes. Last week I switched from Bo Levi Mitchell(10.7 points) and Kenny Stafford(4.6) to Matt Nicholls(2.6) and Brad Sinopili(7.7). I did this with a view to staying flexible on adding Travis Lulay(15.0) as QB plus the Eskimos Defence(5.0) but the price of Travis Lulay was raised from less than $2000 on Wednesday to $5288 on Thursdsay and I couldn't execute within the salary cap so I did nothing and stuck with Nicholls and Sinopoli. Arrrggghhhh!

    Re: CFL Fantasy Football 2018

    My "roll the dice" pick is John White this week. Hamilton has him first on the depth chart and he's only $3706.
    For the first time in a while, I've been able to afford a defense in my cap. Picking Mike Reilly can make filling out the rest of your roster a huge challenge on any given week.

    Under what name do you play? Are you a member of any of the sub-leagues?

    Re: CFL Fantasy Football 2018

    For various reasons, this week I have none of the players who have garnered me the most points in total over the first five weeks. I now find that I'm looking forward to this week's games with trepidation instead of eagerness.
