The time to change your team has past. Now that you’re locked in, come see how you’re doing so far.

pr_fantasyleague_bnr2

We ended up with 216 teams in the Pick-4 league this season, despite the valiant attempts of two people to make it a 218-team league by drafting a new team after the second episode aired. Thanks, timestamps! The most popular players, in order: Roark, Ryan, Ben, Ali, and Chrissy. You can see the full popularity rankings here: Purple Rock Pick-4 Fantasy Teams

Individual scoring

Immunity challenge: 3 points for the Healers, 2 points for the Heroes

Joe gets 3 points for the immunity idol.

Every non-Simone on the Hustlers tribe gets 1 VTEP point.

Pick-4 League

Your current leader is the spectacularly-named “I am 150 to 200% percent happy with my picks right now”. Fantasy kryptonite Violina23 is tied with six others (including podcast-hating The Sky is Falling) for second. A warning to all of you tied with her: proximity to Violina23 has been known to ruin fantasy teams.

Champions and Outcasts Leagues

XL Pelican takes a ride on Joe’s back to move into pole position (phrasing!) in Champions League, and yours truly takes the lead in Outcasts League with a team that seems so destined for failure that I can hardly even muster the desire to gloat. Mike Hirsch and newlywed BKEmAndScout lose a player this week.

Other leagues

We allowed people to do their own draft-based leagues again this season, because drafts are fun. You can find the results of those leagues here (click the tabs at the bottom to switch to see the other leagues): PRP fantasy leagues.

  1. Alright, fine. I’ll commish an NBA PRP fantasy league if I get 10 people interested and able to attend an online auction on the afternoon of either the 14th or 15th.

    Let me know of your interest here and availability.

    1. Oh, and I’m one of those ten. So I think that means I need 9 more, but I’m not really the math guy of this site.

    2. I’m interested and available on either day. I’ve never done a sports fantasy league, but how much worse could I possibly do than my current PRP standings? 🙂

      1. Email the site with your email address so I can invite you: purplerockpodcast at gmail dot com.

    3. Oh, and if you’re wondering: yes, we will do an auction instead of a draft. Which, on the one hand, is harder. On the other, is kind’ve necessary due to how superstar-driven the NBA is.

        1. What is the day we are targeting for this? I said both, but Sunday would be easier for me (I’ll make Saturday happen if that’s when the draft is set).

      1. Good news, then: Auction is on saturday!

        (I take it you don’t want to play after all, or are you the banana boat team, or one of the other teams already in the league?)

          1. Good. We’ll need you to rein Andy in, if when he gets mean to us.

            (You’re Roundball Rock, aren’t you?)

          2. I know. Andy’s mug (+name) is all over the overview site and also the icon for that team. You’re also not carrots’n’sticks or myself, but other than that, YOU COULD BE ANYONE!!

          3. Pretty sure you’re the Pollard’s-Idols-team, though.

            The banana boat was a strong option, but I took your previous reply as a hint that that’s not it.

          4. Pollard’s SuperIdols. Final answer.

            If you squint just right and, like a 14 year old, find penis-humor in everything, it could be read as genitalia joke, so this must be it.

    4. Yay! That’s why everybody loves you so much! You’re like the dad that takes out the dog twice a day, even though you told us, loud and clear, that we would have to care for it all on our own, if we want to keep it.

      I WANT TO PLAY and I’m embarrassingly available! Saturday night CET? Almost certainly no problem! I wouldn’t be opposed to a different time slot, though.

      Could you give us newbies to fantasy basketball a quick primer on rules and goals in this league (in addition to clarifying the auction mechanics, but that seems an obvious necessity), please?

      1. I’m thinking it might be more mid-day on Saturday, depending on whether or not we need to accommodate someone on the other side of the world.

        Hey, wait… that’s you, isn’t it?

        Once I have enough people I can explain the rules. Or at least find a link that does. But I’ll say this now, we’ll be playing season long (or roto) rules, not H2H weekly. Hopefully, that means something to people.

        1. Yes, that would be me, but I think Kemper was also interested, last time you asked.

          Please, go look for that link, because that doesn’t mean anything to me. I take it we’re no doing head-to-head match-ups, but I woudn’t know why we would have such in the first place, or what exactly is rotating in the version you prefer. But that’s fine, I’ll just wait for the full reveal and read up then.

          1. Basically, all points you accumulate for the entire season count, rather than declaring winners on a weekly basis. At the end of the season, the team with the most points* wins.

            (Not just literal “points”, but rather points for accumulating stats in different categories: points, assists, rebounds, blocks, steals, 3 pointers, FG%, FT%. You get 10 points if you are first in a category, 9 points for being second, yada yada, 1 point if you’re 10th).

          2. Very interesting, so points are just one category among many…but the gains in one category can mean a drag in another (the Center- and PG-conundrum)…I can see why Superstars are of such importance, even though they’re rarely top of their craft in categories other than RBs, ASTs and Points.

        1. Easy, I just did. So how will this work? Do I need to make some kind of draft board for the auction? And how dare you change the scoring categories (and system), after I thought all week about strategies to beat you with the efficiencies (ok, I didn’t think about that all week, but the idea crossed my mind)!

          1. I SIMPLIFIED THEM FOR YOU!

            You might want to have some kind of board or maybe just a cheat sheet from other sites to get a sense of expected pricing for players. I suspect this draft will deviate wildly though, since it’s possible that no more than three of us have ever played (and none of us with this scoring system).

          2. RODY GOBERT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE MY GAME-BREAKING SECRET WEAPON; AND NOW HE’S ONLY GOOD FOR BLOCKS AND REBOUNDS1!!11!!
            And low turnovers. BUT STILL!!!

            Ughh, so much googling involved with that. So I’m going to get results if I look for “nba fantasy auction draft pricings”, or is there an easier way? [Ok, so far I’ve found a bunch of long-winded guides, that also feature a few examples, and different draft boards. A handy chart would be more helpful, but I guess these will do. Do we have 200$ each, too?]
            Basically, what I want to know is: how much time will I have to look up player profiles after they are put up for auction (and how does that work, do we nominate them in turns?) – some, or none?

            Good, when half of the league hasn’t played before, I won’t stick out so much and feel better about coming in somewhat unprepared. To what degree that will be and how much time I’ll be able and willing to spend until saturday to change that, I don’t even know yet, but it won’t be much (unfortunately).

          3. I figured that would be the case, what with over 100 players that need to be drafted, but that doesn’t mean I like it. You guys can at least take a quick look, but for me, all your North-American websites take valuable seconds to load – not fair! Where can I apply for an Atlantic Ocean exception?
            (I know, you’re the commissioner AND the league office and the motion is denied. Still sucks, though. /sarcastfont, obviously – but I do hope that I won’t find out about an European lag at yahoo on saturday. )

  2. 🎵Movin’ on up! 🎵
    So glad I kept Joe on my team – I knew his spastic-ness would lead to at least one idol find XD

      1. Never fear! Like any hopper worth his salt, I am here to do what you don’t want to do.

          1. This is fun. I wish more people had the same random jobs as Survivors, like how I am also personal assistant to GloZell.

          2. It’s too bad that none of the players have the job title of “unemployed Canadian.”

          3. Which one of us would have the Survivor jobs of “Russell Hantz’s Nephew” or “Ex-NFL Player’s Wife”?

          4. The only job title I know among the commenters is prettyboyprobst = assistant to the Commissioner of the Palsy League.

          5. That’s crazy. That’s like me saying that I’m the “Executive Commissioner”. He is Assistant Commissioner, I am Executive Commissioner.

  3. I sort of just picked Ali with the attitude of “eh, why not” in Champions League and if she keeps it up that will be the most fortunate accident I’ve ever had. Still feel really good about Ryan too.

    1. Isn’t there a famous Katy Perry song about her? “You’re gonna hear me Roark” or something like that.

          1. That’s big talk from the guy whose bellhop rooting interest will be booted at the swap for being too weaselly.

            Sorry, I shouldn’t have called him that. He’s your bellboy rooting interest, isn’t he?

          2. I’m sorry. I’m lashing out in unhealthy ways. I don’t understand the Roark hate, not that I understand her stans either. We just genuinely have not seen any amount of her that could give anyone any opinion on her at all.

          3. Agreed. I will be more than willing to admit I screwed up once we actually, you know, see her say/do almost anything at all.

          4. It’s not that I hate Roark. I just enjoy seeing the dreams of others crushed in fantasy league.

          5. I am a bellhop, sir! And I will accept nothing less than the respect that my position demands!

    2. Ooh, I have one too.

      “ROAR(k), huh, yeah
      What is it good for
      Absolutely nothing
      ROAR(k), huh, yeah
      What is it good for
      Absolutely nothing
      Say it again, why’all”

  4. I’m not moving ahead in any of my leagues, but I’m not moving backwards either. So hooray?

    Also, I’m going to plug our binge listen of The Adventure Zone again, just in case anyone didn’t look at the live blog thread and/or Disqus dissuq’ed. For those who are unfamiliar, it’s a DnD podcast (really, it’s more DnD-adjacent) that is super funny, super awesome, and super stupid. So let us know if you’re interested in listening along with us! And even if you think you’re not, try the few episodes with us; a lot of people think it’s not for them before it turns out to be absolutely for them. And apparently Andy checks out from reading these when you mention DnD, so Alberta sure does suck huh? Not as much as Boston Rob though, amirite?

      1. You weren’t supposed to read that Andy! But also, I did not know about Albertan terrorism, and I am sorry.

        1. Also, the trick is to bury that hate IN the thread. I obviously have to read the first post to know to ignore the rest.

    1. I absolutely wouldn’t mind checking it, but with Survivor, Australian Survivor, my first watch of all Big Brother seasons, and getting my way through Danganronpa V3, I won’t be able in a very long time. But I will try next year!

      1. Put BB on hold and join us! (I can’t tell you to drop any of the other three bc they’re all new and shiny and nice) Also, TAZ discussions are going to be happening in these very forums, so there’s no guarantee you’ll be safe from a spoiler. In fact, I might go so far as to guarantee it. That sounds like a threat, but I promise I’m not trying to. Just join us!

        1. I’ll try next week then. I’m not making any promises though, because I may simply not find enough time to do even that, but I’ll do my best!

    2. A podcast would be great to listen to when I’m walking. Where is the easiest place to get it?

      1. I use the podcast app on my iPhone, but I hear people like to use Stitcher. So if you have an Android, maybe try that.

  5. I am pleased with my Pick-4 team, need to enjoy this brief moment where I’m actually ahead in my 1-on-1 league, and have no hopes at all in the Outcast League unless Roark actually wins this thing.

      1. It pains me to say it but I think Saturday Night Palsy has the best duo for the Outcasts, but I will happily be wrong on that!

        Who do you think will win in the Champions League?

          1. Dude, this is totallythe second league I’m gonna beat you in, bruh!

            You know. Like Joe says it.

  6. Has Roark done anything to warrent the amount of love she has gotten here? She had a suggestion on a puzzle, but that is not anywhere near earning the most popular pick title.

    1. Honestly, I think power of suggestion plays a big part in it. When a few people start mentioning a name, the rest of us start paying more attention to that player and find our own reasons for why they would do well. I might have done the same but I’m still stinging from the Great Mari Debacle of 2016.

    2. Happy to say I hadn’t read a word of any comments before today, so my pick was pure coincidence. Also she said something reasonable-sounding in the first episode, and also let’s be honest if we’re thinking about women who fit the ‘early boot’ demographics she is…white.

  7. Gonna put in one last plug for Survivor Underground: the league where gameplay doesn’t matter and it’s all about being a reality star. Points for cussing, points for shit-talking, points for nudity, no points for voting people out.

    Anyone who’s interested can join here: http://www.purplerockpodcast.com/underground-league-discussion/ by responding to the post John has helpfully pinned with a unique 3 person team.

    1. Will we get any replies saying “Team confirmed” like John does for the Pick-4 team so we’ll know for sure our submitted team is available and accepted?

  8. The Palsy League Situation

    As Executive Commissioner of the Palsy League, I would like to report this week’s standings. In what is surely depressing news for the league, I have lost Simone this week leaving me with just two players and 13 points. Leading the league is the Assistant Commissioner, prettyboyprobst, with 20 points! Badplayer91and HBO CEO of tits are right behind him with 18 and 17 points, respectively. Known poor decision maker Something Bout Football is performing as expected with a lowly 11 points, and struggling in the back of the pack is our newest member, DrVanNostrum with only 7 points (fun fact: that’s the lowest point total in all of the six player leagues!). Have no fear though, good doctor! Someone will surely screw up soon, and Commissioner Palsy will be here to report it!

    1. I’m not worried. Ali and Devon could go far. I knew Katrina was a bad pick, but to quote Keith I had to “stick to the plan”.

    2. All the idol(holder)s belong to me! I’m not sure how BadPlayer91 could close the gap so quickly anyway, but I know that I don’t like it.

      By the way, why didn’t YOU pick the bellhop and let him fall to me? I didn’t even want him and it seems like you can’t get enough of him. With Troyzan, at least you went All In (I think).

  9. Nice! I earned a little infamy in the fantasy league. All it took was to question the whole concept of the site. I learned everything I know from resident villain Saturday Night Palsy.

    Bad news is, as soon as Joe is voted out, the whole league turns upside down.

    EDIT: All I can say in my defense is I spent two weeks writing a defense of Phillip. So something is clearly very wrong with my brain.

  10. Fan Favourite League Update

    Diego remains in first with his idol truffle-hunting team. I am still in second, with my Beauty led team, though I’m not entirely sure who this alleged Desi person is on my team. conrdogshuffle has claimed 3rd place, despite having mortal enemies Alan and Ashley on his team. Purple Tally has sole possession of 4th, losing Simone but keeping both OW Ali and OW Roark. Tied for last are indescribable hat, though her team looks in it for the long haul, and Super duper fan, who better hope Lauren’s hatred for redheads doesn’t burn her.

  11. I’m on the first page of Pick 4 for the first time ever. This will never happen again. All praise to Obvious Winner Desi.

  12. I haven’t watched the episode yet but my pick 4 strategy of picking the least popular people based on others’ choices has left me with the first two boots, almost as if people are making well-informed opinions here…feels like I’m learning the wrong lesson, somehow.

  13. I’m slightly regretting changing Jessica to Chrissy. I changed it because I didn’t want to have Cole, Mike, and Jessica who are all on the same tribe on my fantasy league. Also, Jessica could be seen with Cole and appear to have a dangerous alliance. I would be higher If I hadn’t changed it tho.

  14. Ok why wasn’t Cole awarded any points for an immunity Idol? He told Joe to dig 5 feet from the well in the first place, and helped dig. Technically they both possess the idol as a collective unit.

    1. Technically Joe is the only one to actually possess the idol. There are no collective units on Survivor. That is how Tai got Scott sent home.

      1. I have a feeling that Cole would have given it to Joe. After a bit of healing magic, of course.

  15. Rank 214 out of lets see.. 216. Well not many other people can they say they made page 15 so I’m going to take this is a win.

      1. Oh page 11* when I sort normally, actually. Page 11 has 16 people not 20 because it’s the last page. I’m sure now you can understand the prestige. Nobody mocks me!

    1. If I’ve learned one thing from the Pick-4, it’s that how well you do in the first 2 weeks indicates how well you’ll do for the rest of the season.

  16. If Barbara Anderson is the good witch, I’m definitely the bad witch.

    P.S. My husband, aka “doomed”/”bassmanxvi” is currently in 121st place.

    1. I also happen to be 35th on ESPN at nfl pick em. It’s a gift. Throw this in my face in two weeks when ryan and joe are gone. Knew i should’ve piked ben and chrissy

  17. I am exactly 100 spots behind Barbara in pick-four. Clearly we have not watched enough Survivor together lately for me to have retained my witch training.

  18. I guess my team must not have made the deadline? I don’t see it listed and it is not a duplicate. Ben, Chrissy, Jessica and Roarke?
