2020 Video Q&A Subscriber Live Stream Prep/Access Info
My preseason live video Q&A shows will be conducted on Amazon’s top-notch live stream service ‘Twitch’.
If you have used Twitch before, then you know what to do come showtime.
If you’ve not used Twitch before, it’s easy…
You can access/watch Twitch several different ways:
1) From your computer or tablet.
2) From your smartphone (download the Twitch App).
3) From your smart TV on the Twitch App/channel.
You can watch without having a Twitch account…it’s live/free video, but if no account (user/pw) then you cannot ask any questions in the chat side.
But if you want to be able to communicate with/ask questions of me via the chat -- make sure you set up a Twitch account…it’s free and just setup/use any username/password you desire. It will take you like two minutes or less to set up.
Quick test to find our channel by searching for ‘ffmetrics’, and you’ll see our logo/channel. If you’ve never seen a Twitch stream before -- click on any random live show happening from the Twitch homepage to see what something in action looks like.
Here’s a quick link to get straight through to the FFM channel: https://www.twitch.tv/ffmetrics
If you have an account (user/pw), you can choose to ‘follow’ the ‘ffmetrics’ channel and then as soon as I click the button to go live…you’ll get an instant notification on your devices that we’re going live (good to get the App for your phone for that reason). If you don’t ‘follow’ the channel, then just be there at the appointed time and as soon as we’re live you’ll see us.
Twitch has an excellent ‘chat room’ function. You can ask (type into chat) me any football question you desire, and I’ll go through the stream and answer them in order.
I only ask that you make it as easy for me to answer/expand upon your question by doing the following…
If you want to send in a fantasy question, please note in shorthand your pertinent league particulars – PPR/half/non-PPR, 4 or 6pts per pass TD, any performance bonuses in your scoring (100+ yds or 300+ yds, etc.), Redraft-Dynasty-Best Ball, lineup things like ‘SuperFlex/2QB or 3WR starts, roster size, 10-team, 12-team, 16-team, etc.
You don’t have to write a book, just give me the shorthand I can figure out so that I don’t make an uneducated analysis of your situation…if need be, I’ll ask for clarification and I’ll come back to your question when I see the clarification.
*You can put (examples):
12-tm, 17-man, PPR, 6pts pass, redraft
10-tm, 20-man, Non-PPR, 2QB, 4pts pass w bonuses
-Try and put these quick notes before your question…anything that helps me know the situation.
I will take any football question you want to hear my take on – fantasy, draft prep, trade, rookie draft, handicapping, prop bets, things you think I’m dumb about, website clarifications, etc.
I will open the show with 2-3-4-5-6-7-8 things of interest/importance (whatever I have) to go over from my notes from that day…sometimes it’s big/huge/juicy stuff for fantasy/betting. I never know until that day. I try to keep some neat tidbits for the show opening.
After the show opens and I clear my quick notes, I start going through the questions from first to last. You can submit your question to the chat anytime and get it into the queue, and I’ll hit it when we get to the Q&A part after my openers.
All I ask is that you keep it clean, rated G for your questions/comments…and I will stream close to ‘G’ as well, so that you don’t have any issues listening with family/kids around. I’m pretty ‘G’ all the time anyways.
After the show closes, it will remain on Twitch for you to watch/listen to on-demand/anytime…if you missed anything, want to re-visit, couldn’t attend live. It stays up for a week or so.
