HSN Fantasy Football


Recommended Posts

HSN Posters.  Last year (HSN) we had a pair of 12 team Fantasy Football leagues (free).  The competition was fierce, but it was a heckuva good time.  Based on early feedback from those that played last season, we expect to need approximately 4-5 replacement teams this year (out of 24).  If you have any interest in joining, I will guarantee a spot to the first 4 that respond to this thread. If more are interested, we will create a waiting list starting after 4 for 5, 6, 7, 8, etc. in case we have more open spots than expected.  

League setup is fairly standard, with 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 Defense, 1 K, and 1 Flex with a bench.  Scoring is fairly standard PPR with a little extra QB scoring on TD passes and some yardage bonuses.  But, nothing overly exotic.   Beyond a couple of hours for the draft,  the time commitment can be as little as a few minutes each week to ensure you field a complete lineup.  

If you've never played before, this is a perfect opportunity to get your feet wet since there is no cost.  If you miss the playoffs, who cares.  None of us know who you really are anyway.  If you win, you have board bragging rights for the entire next year.

12 team leagues definitely task your roster management as the season goes along. Worse case we go to 10 with 4 team playoffs and winner of consolation bracket moving to winners league….but hopefully we find enough to fill it up and everyone else plays. Any thoughts on 1/2 point ppr? Crazy 3rd down backs can be worth more than featured backs and guys like Hunter Renfro can be more valuable than a Tyreke Hill in these full PPR leagues.

I'm personally a PPR guy.  The league is becoming more of a passing league and there aren't really more than 5 old-school featured backs left in the NFL (Taylor, Mixon, Harris, Henry, Cook, Barkley if he's healthy.....?).  I think PPR really balances out the first round and takes away the massive advantage the first 5 picks used to have.  I could argue all day that Austin Ekeler is just as valuable to team success as Derrick Henry is.  With backs, it's 80% the system that makes a lot of these backs successful.  

As far as receivers.  Receiving TD's last year:

  • Hill - 9
  • Renfrow - 9

Hill actually had a few more catches and a couple hundred extra yards.  So, it wasn't the the number of catches that kept them close in points over the course of the season.  It literally was that Renfrow had a higher percentage of catches for TD's than Hill.

I'm open to tweaking the league rules, but PPR is one I'm pretty committed to.  Yeah, I get that a 5 yard rush and a five yard catch are basically the same thing.  But, I stand by my position that it helps balances the scoring, especially in larger leagues.  When the 12th pick of the first round can realistically be expected to score the same as the first pick, I thin that adds to the game.

Also if HSN starts a dynasty league I want in lol. 😂 only league I played where 75% or more played the entire season. Can’t trust anyone else to stick out multiple seasons.

I'm open to a Dynasty as an 'extra' league.  I would not want it to take away from the two regular leagues though.  I agree the players in a dynasty league are more likely to be serious.  On the flip side, I absolutely love doing the full re-draft.  In Dynasty, if you don't get someone like JT as a rookie, you never get to have him on your team.  

We can explore dynasty. but I would want all Dynasty players to commit to having a redraft team as well so we can maintain a healthy amount of participation.
