Finished in 20th after being in the top 10 all year (including 1st at several stages) except the last two rounds, captaining Brady on his only shutout was the killer :ROFLMAO: - solid 11 he got that week!

A bit guttered but it was good fun and I'd almost rather 20th than 11th and just missing out on the $

First Year in NFL Fantasy, honestly surprised at how well the season went (considering I didn't even know how to loop non-scoring players until Round 10 lol). Was a great filler for the AFL off season - was actually wondering how I'd spend my time but look at where I ended up

Been fortunate enough to have seen some variations / suggestions around rookies for R1, so managed to have a majority of rookies lined up well without exhausting trades was super helpful (Harris, Williams, Chase etc). Much appreciated guys!

If there is anything I'd like to suggest is that maximising value gain & utilising trades (2 per round) near the beginning of the season whilst the prices are still not proportionate to player value, was pretty important for my team, especially when players could double their value in 2-3 weeks. The number of trades made available with the length of the season makes it viable to trade heaps at the beginning of the season (compared to AFL). This non-scoring loophole & bye round players loops really helped over the course of the season as well

All in all a fun first season, thanks again for everyone for their help & input throughout the season (& especially at the start of the season) - hopefully can get an invite to more than one SCS league next season :)

P.S. Looking forward to rubbing shoulder with some of the NFL fanatics over on sleeper next season via Draft!

Lessons for next year: Dont waste trades in K and DST, make money fast early chasing break evens, get a value WR7/RB5 asap for bye rounds, stop going for pod captains, dont use qb3 as loophole

Congrats on a fine debut season and great to see you have learnt a lot. Agree on all your learnings and if I might add to the Kicker and DST point, I would recommend to try to avoid paying over $3 to $3.5 million at any time for a kicker and over $4.5 million for a DST. Due to injuries, Covid-19, roster cuts and underperformance there will always be cheap DST and kickers available either at the start or during the season to greatly outperform their price and given the bulk of the points are scored in the other positions, then it is best to neglect these two spots for as long as possible.

I've been thinking that Cincinnati offense might be quite scary in the coming years.
Burrow at QB', Mixon as RB; Chase, Boyd and Higgins as WRs.
They'll have to improve their OL though: 50+ sacks of Burrows in 16 games this year. That's the most of any QB - compare Brady who was sacked 21 times in 17 games

Don't forget - Burrow did get busted up in his first year. Had his leg written off because OL wasn't strong enough
