Rotobowl From Scout and FFWC

The 10th Annual Rotobowl is now open!
Entry fee is $279
The Grand prize is $50,000
League prizes are $2,375
-1st Place is $1,500 cash or a 2015 FFWC Main Event Entry (valued at $1,695)
-2nd place is $250 cash or a 2015 Rotobowl entry (valued at $279) and $200 for the best regular season record and $200 for the most points in the regular season.



Rotobowl uses FFWC Scoring rules

Highlights:
13 week Regular season with weeks 1 and 2 as All-play (top 6 scoring teams get a win)
12 Team leagues with 20 man rosters
Starters are 1 QB, 2 RB, 3WR, 1 TE, 1 K, 1 DEF and 2 Flex


FFWC and Scout have placed a limit of 1992 teams for the 2014 Rotobowl. Last year the Rotobowl had 552 teams compete.

If all 1992 teams play in 2014 (i.e it is max'd out with 166 Leagues) the ROI for the Rotobowl is

Entry fees paid in $279 x 1992 entrants=$555,768

166 leagues x $2,375 in league prizes=$394,250
Grand prizes=$82,790
Total Payout if 1992 teams=$477,040

ROI (if full) is 85.83% (70% in league prizes)
ROI increases if less than full participants play.
For example if there are 996 teams
-(entry $277,884)
-(83 league prizes $197,125) 
-plus the Grand prizes ($82,790)=$279,915 paid out
or a ROI of 100%

Ask The Expert Question: Based on the drafts you've seen/participated in so far, pick one player you believe is being overrated, and one player you believe is being underrated, and say why.

Based on the drafts you've seen/participated in so far, pick one player you believe is being overrated, and one player you believe is being underrated, and say why.

Underrated-DeAngelo Williams and Shonn Greene. I am not saying go out and draft them in the 5th round because they are going to be great. Instead I think there is value at where they are going. DeAngelo Williams is the starting RB at CAR. What does that earn him in drafts? RB43 and a spot in the 10th round. I love to draft a starter in the 10th on the odd chance that all of the naysayers are wrong. Personally I have him ranked as a RB 35 (late 8th rounder).
Shonn is my 44th ranked RB and instead is being drafted like a RB58 in the 15th. I am willing to take a flyer on him because rookie RBs sometimes disappoint. Bishop Sankey was crowned the starter just after the NFL draft but I have seen nothing to prove that he is the man in TEN. He may well be but RBBC is more like it and there is the chance that Greene starts and plays more this season. For a 14th or 15th round lottery ticket I like Greene. 

Overrated-Wes Welker. Before his concussion last weekend  (3rd in 10 months) I had Welker as my WR21 while others had him at WR15. Now I am dropping him even further in my rankings to WR45 or a 10-11th round pick. Sure he will probably play week 1 but what happens if he has another concussion. He could be out for the year. He is too much risk for not much reward even if he does start the season.





ASK THE EXPERTS appears weekly at http://www.fantasyindex.com/ with answers to a new question posted Thursday morning.


Sam Hendricks is the author of Fantasy Football Guidebook, Fantasy Football Tips and Fantasy Football Basics , all available at his website, http://www.ffguidebook.com/, at all major bookstores, and at http://www.amazon.com/. He is a 20+ year fantasy football veteran who regularly participates in the National Fantasy Football Championship (NFFC), Fantasy Football World Championship (FFWC) and finished 7th and 16th overall (out of 228 top players) in the 2008 and 2009 Fantasy Football Players Championship (FFPC).
