Hey all you guys and gals, it's the first of the month, and you know what that means! Fantasy Standings Checking Time! First, a quick rehashing of whats going on after the season. As you all know, we have two leagues going, Yahoo! and CBSSports.com. Basically, at the end of the year, we will have a winner from both and one overall winner. Since we don't actually have any money or prizes up for grabs, the champs get bragging rights forever and ever until next year.
When the 2011 fantasy season begins is when it gets interesting as far as rosters go. We have twenty-eight people right now, so the simplest thing that would happen is nobody stops playing and nobody new joins (this won't happen, though). If it were like that, the top 14 overall points leaders will make up League #1--the better league--and the lower 14 teams will make up League #2--the lesser league.
That won't happen. New teams will join, old teams will leave. New teams will automatically go to the lesser division (we might even have to make a third league). So basically, I can't say exactly how many teams are going to be in each division, but it will be made easier because the leagues won't have to have an even amount of teams because we're doing relegation beginning after the 2011 season. For those who don't know what that means, it's a process where the bottom few teams in a league drop down to the league below them and are replaced by the top few teams in that league.
We'll figure out the semantics next year as to how many teams move up and down, where they go, etc. I would actually be kind of in favor of a smaller "Premier League" so it seems more exclusive to win and stay in that top rung of BCB fantasy players, but we'll see. Feel free to ask away if anything is confusing, I kind of wrote this hastily.
If you want to see the standings, follow the jump. (Hint: I'm awesome!)
First, the CBSSports.com Commissioner League:
|4 (tie)||Shane Miller||109.5|
|4 (tie)||Dikembe Meiztombo||109.5|
And the Yahoo! league (adjusted as though there were 14 teams, taking out my JSCommenters):
Oh, and just in case anyone missed it, I'M BEATING EVERYONE! With Trevor Hoffman as my only real closer!
Discuss how your teams are doing, what moves you have made, etc.
