Re: Fantasy Basketball - **WF Keeper League** -
Baseball and basketball can't really be compared that's the thing.
Baseball, rookies make an immediate impact, if you aren't playing you likely aren't up in the majors. NBA rookies are brought in slowly, for the most part. Having daily pretty much makes it impossible to stash players as you will have a huge disadvantage over players that don't stash players. Stashing players is a big part of fantasy basketball and not one I'd really want to eliminate but seeing as I don't even tend to stash rookies I don't much care. The guys that do stash rookies should be the ones that care.
Also, pitchers pitch 1 to 2 days a week, and hitters get 1 or more days off a week generally where they don't start/play in their teams game, this doesn't happen in the NBA. Another reason why baseball needs to be daily.
I just don't get the same enjoyment out of daily leagues for basketball. It takes no strategy to just start the players that are PLAYING and sit the ones who have the day off.
I've said all this before though and it hasn't changed anyones belief so I will digress, I really don't care. There's one that makes more sense for keeper leagues.
Lots of other things have been thrown around, making it a VR league. Whatever else.
My biggest question is how many more times UDFK is going to brag about not drafting his team, like it's something worth bragging about.
Maple Leafs - Raptors - Steelers - Blue Jays - Florida State
