College Crosse 2018 Fantasy Lineups

See what’s in store for the College Crosse fantasy league this season.

In part because we thought it’d be fun, but also because the guiding principle of this web site has long been “Why not?”, we decided to form a fantasy lacrosse league this season. It could be a hit. It could fail miserably. Probably the latter, but you never know unless you try.

We drafted last night, and if you’re a masochist, you can listen to the draft podcast here. It’s mostly comprised of awkward 10-second silences broken up by “uh...I pick Brendan Gleason?” or “who’s turn is it?” so if that sounds appealing to you—by all means, give it a listen. If not, these are the rules, scoring system, and rosters we’ll use heading into the college season:

(Safe tried live-tweeting the results while we drafted, but that lasted about one round before it became too much for him to handle.)

PARTICIPANTS

  • Me (Adam)
  • Safe
  • Chris
  • Marisa
  • Jake
  • Jim Simmons
  • Jack Goods

EACH MANAGER MUST SELECT...

  • 3 Attackmen
  • 3 Midfielders (can be either offensive middies or SSDM)
  • 1 Flex (can be either attack or middie)
  • 3 Defensemen (can be close D or LSM)
  • 2 FOGOs
  • 2 Goalies

THE STATS WE’RE TRACKING

  1. Goals
  2. Assists
  3. Shooting %
  4. Ground balls
  5. Caused turnovers
  6. Face-off %
  7. Shooting %

Every team will be ranked 1-7 based on where they stack up for each stat. For instance, if your team leads the league in goals, you’ll receive a “7” for that stat. If you are last in ground balls, you’ll get a “1” for that stat. Add up all your numbers, and that will be the standings. Each stat is of equal value: Caused turnovers are just as important as goals. Which means your defensemen are just as important as your attackmen. Gotta give the D guys some love, because no one else does!

So, for instance, say a team is currently in fourth place in every stat. They’ll get seven “4s” and have 28 total points (7x4, for the math nerds out there). This should be familiar to anyone who’s every played fantasy baseball, which typically uses a rotisserie scoring system. I’ll update the standings each week so you can follow along and see how the teams are doing.

Without further adieu, let’s get to the teams. Let us know in the comments or on Twitter who you think has the best squad headed into the season (we’ll have an add/drop system during the season, but I’ll get to that later).
