Football Week 2 Contests Up, Shutout Bonus Removed
Football contests are up for week 2. In general these will go up around mid-day on Tuesdays for the following week. We removed the 5 point bonus for DEF shutouts. The scoring rules have been updated as such. We did not like the way this worked with the live scoring. Defensive scoring is already pretty confusing as we do things differently, and there are some issues with the feed that play around with the DEF scoring number while the game is running. We thought that adding an extra 5 pts at the beginning of the game for the shutout, was just too much so it is now gone. The last tweak we made for week 2 is lowering the cap amounts. The cap amounts seemed a bit high for week one. Tighter caps, make you dig a little deeper to find your starters and makes things a little tougher as a result. There are always the no cap contests for those who can't or don't want to make trade offs building their fantasy team. Let us know what you think of our football offering, as we fine tune it over the first few weeks.
