Salary pool adjustments
Topic started in: NFL Football on 09/20/11
Should we raise or lower salaries? Lower minimums? More of a range? Let's get some feedback and we can make adjustments. Solo targets will adjust accordingly.
I feel in cfb and NFL (a lot better this week) 1.0m caps are expert games and the 1.2 are normal. For instance Alexander for the rams had 1 good game in the 9 games he's played in the NFL and he's a top price WR. The pricing hurts the deep sleepers that we do the research to find for good value.
stevie, tight pricing would be a benefit to those who find deep sleepers. or are you suggesting that the deep sleepers are priced too high (kinda meaning that they aren't really deep sleepers, right?)
Pricing to me seems perfect. It's not hard to fill a solid lineup at current (or week 1) salaries. Of course you have to choose where to go cheap, but 1 million is a fair balance to work with. What I'm having trouble understanding is the target points for solo contests. I see in chat you said it's based on expected average. Does this mean it will go down some weeks? Can I expect it to fluctuate somewhere around 110? Just a little thrown off because of the jump from 90-110 in one week.
I'm just saying that the sleepers are priced like stars. A #2-3 WR priced as a #1 makes it hard to dig deep. Most people play fantasy because
1. They love the sport and it makes it fun to follow there favorite players.
2. They like to gamble and make some extra money.
3. It's something to do as a hobby.
Daily fantasy has grown so much it the past year I love it. I'm reason #1 I love sports and daily fantasy makes it fun to follow. I don't do this for a living so I enjoy a higher cap to get more of the bigger names and score a higher amount of points it's fun.
I see what you're saying stevie. Personally though I like the way they jack up the price on obvious "sleepers" ..... On other sites where the prices on those guys stays low, almost every single team grabs them and it makes for less variance in scoring. On Fanduel last week scoring was a joke because everyone had miles austin and vincent jackson.
But miles Austin and Vincent Jackson are stars not sleepers though.
True. I guess you're talking more about how expensive Decker and Alexander are.
DJ does a good job of keeping the salary spread between top tier players, mid tier, and deep sleepers. Unlike FD like you said everyone had Miles/Vjax last week.
joust does inflait a 2 week wonder , even if he was only a fill in, (a little excesive), the setup is much better than the 4 week behind competiter, something in the middle would be perfect, all 'n ' all they do well
The salary spreads seem to be pretty much on track. As an avid football fan, it's nice to be forced to think a little when selecting a team. It's even nicer when you know your opponent(s) have to think a little harder too!!
I like the salary spreads as is. They seem quite good.
DJ is definitely ahead of the curve on the salaries and making this a more fun and challenging game and site. Love it. Keep it up!
