Need Lineup Help for Week 17/Title Week?
My annual tradition…if you would like a lineup check, or have a tough sit-start question, etc., and you’d like me to weigh in on– please feel free to email me, and I will try to get to all the emails before Sunday morning.
But please make it easy for me. I don’t know your league by heart, and I’m going to get a million questions this week with a million different scoring systems – put your scoring system and particulars in the start of the email so I can quick reference it. (With the crazy amount of titles folks are in this season = it's OK to put one team/league question/s per email...you don't have to put your 2-3 different title game questions on one email if it would be a huge cluster of info/pics, etc.)
4 or 6pts per pass TD or other?
PPR, half, non?
Any bonus scoring (100+ yard game, distance of TD, etc.)?
Distance bonus on kicker FGs, or just 3pts for everything?
DST scoring…just your typical by points allowed/sacks/turnovers…or also yards allowed?
Knowing your opponent’s QB/lineup also helps…because there’s different strategies on blocking your opponent, unblocking yourself from opponent, players to pick up to pinch your opponent, players you should be picking up to protect yourself, etc.
Make it easy for me. Screen clips are OK but a typed out list is better – because sometimes the screen clips take up a huge amount of space on my phone or desktop. Choose a medium sized pic, not an extra large if you go there because of the volume of the thing you want me to see.
Also, shorthand common player names at your own risk…Jefferson, Williams, Smith, Reynolds, Brown, etc. I could assume the wrong thing, so make sure you specify the players first name with common last names if typing out anything.
If you ask – (example) should I start ___ or just pick up someone else…I don’t know who your someone else opportunities are – I need to know the options. Help me help you.
Finally, send your email with the subject line starter of TITLE WEEK QUESTION…so I can see it clearly in my crowded email box.
Also, then add to that subject line: -- (title of movie or documentary or TV Show I need to see/you are endorsing as ‘great’…recent or ancient history). When the FF season ends, I got a few months to catch up on media. I got a number of books to read. Things saved in my DVR. But I miss a lot of what’s going on in the world the past 5 months, and my summer 2021 was a disaster and I didn’t get to watch anything I had planned. So, what movie or TV series or doc do I need to consider watching?
By adding that to your email subject line, it helps me remember who is who/differentiates all the emails better…it sticks out more for me. Plus, I’m looking to see what I should be trying to watch this offseason. I am hoping to watch some media this offseason and touch upon reviews of things for fun, non-football things to talk about in FFM articles this winter/spring/summer.
So, email subject line (example): TITLE WEEK QUESTION – Squid Games
I haven’t seen the Squid Games, but I know it was a thing a while back…but not sure if it's really good or not. Just using it as an example.
Email to firstname.lastname@example.org
No promises, but I will try to get to all of the emails ASAP and by 8amET Sunday…and then the window is closed as I focus on Sunday stuff from there.
*And then you also have to tell me how it all played out next week, once it's settled -- I love to join the celebration...but I also know that you need a shoulder to cry on as well, if it goes the other way.
