Celebrity Fantasy Eliminator Leagues, Explained

Some of the best things happening in fantasy right now are happening on at fantasycares.net. If you’re unfamiliar, it’s a site that Scott Fish and people like John Bosch use to offer interesting and different leagues that all have one thing in common. They all give a part of their league pot to charity. So people, if you’re constrained by your budget as I am you can now play Fantasy Football under the heading of charity, at least in part. This is a fantastic opportunity. I challenge you have more fun donating to charity.

Besides the philanthropic attraction to the site, the fantasy Celebrity Eliminator Leagues have a set up that really has me captivated. The basic premise of these leagues is that each week the lowest scoring team is eliminated. So it’s sort of an anti best-ball/ best ball league, where floor becomes very important. You’ll be playing against 16 other teams (17 team league) and drafting 17 rounds. The draft is not a typical snake, but instead it flows like the NFL draft (If you have the 1.09, you’d have the 2.09, 3.09) but reverses after 3 rounds. Starting lineups consist entirely of flex positions. You can start 0-2 QB’s, and 0-8 of every other position including D/ST and Kicker. Scoring is 0.4 per passing yard, 0.125 per rushing yard, 0.1 per receiving yard, 0.75 PPR and 1.5 PPR for TE’s.

So how do you approach your draft in such a league? Here’s a look at the top 50 scorers, followed by the next 50

The position that is by far the most represented in the top 50 is QB. And, with 17 teams that are each allowed to start 2, the supply of starting QB’s is short. At the top Aaron Rodgers would’ve provided teams with 28 points per week on average. Cody Kessler, by comparison was only good for about 9 ppw at QB 32. Behind him what we see are players who didn’t start a full season like Josh McCown, Matt Barkley, Jared Goff, and Case Keenum. In the same 32 players the flex position drops from 27ppw with David Johnson to 13 ppw with Michael Thomas. The QB position both drops faster and is more quickly depleted. The consistent, reliable, practically injury free source of scoring goes dry pretty quickly.

Beyond QB the next most valuable position, with over ¼ of the top 50, were the bell-cow RB’s. These players are a great, although more volatile, source of top end points. I really like that instead of incorporating any points per carry, the league settings just add to the value of rushing yards making them 0.025 points per yard more valuable. It does less to inflate inefficient players with volume, and more to value high producers. Even in a league where you don’t have to start an RB, teams with one of the top 5-6 at this position will have an advantage. To make it clear, RB volatility and injury is a concern in this format. But, if your player is injured you aren’t taking zero’s. You’ll fill that in, albeit with fewer points from another player. The risk in this case seems to be worth the reward when players like David Johnson, Bell, and Elliot were on pace with top flight QB’s.

When the supply of RB’s has been gobbled up, I’d start looking to the Wide Receiver position. They aren’t clearly subordinate, especially at the very top end. Antonio Brown and Julio Jones are in play for me as soon as the big 3 RB’s and QB1’s (top 17) are off the board. They do add level of stability, and the scoring at the position drops at a much more gradual rate.

The top TE’s shouldn’t be neglected here either. If their ADP is slipping a long ways below the top WR’s they’re clearly superior to low end WR 2’s or WR 3’s.

Another position that is worth a look is, surprisingly, Kicker. For example Justin Tucker and Matt Bryant outscored Allen Robinson. To be fair, those two were pretty exceptional at their position. The first cluster of Kickers comes around the Chris Thompson, Randall Cobb, 140 points on the season range. They provide a floor, and are very unlikely to give you a zero due to injury. Taking Kickers with the last 2-3 rounds of your draft may be a sneaky way to buy some insurance. They’re also not going to give you the negative scores that a DST can, and out-score Defenses all the way through 32nd at their position.

Here’s how I’d approach the first few rounds. For the sake of clarity I used FantasyPros.com’s projections and plugged in the scoring system for this format. I have adjusted a few players up or down, and you can see that based on the season point total next to each player’s name.

The crazy thing is that in a 17 team league, that’s about 3 rounds. If you’d like to add a league that won’t add to your in-season work-load, and will get you thinking about new and interesting ways to look at players and league set up, I’d urge you to go over to fantasycares.net and take a look at what they’re offering.
