I belong to a league, and we're into our 9th season! .. $100 buy in

Anyway every year we chop, change and tweak our categories and weightings for the following season.

Was really interested in how other leagues operate. What categories and what weightings do you assign to them?

Cheers

Score (2), Kicks, Handballs, Marks, Tackles, Hitouts, Rebounds, Clearances and Spoils (2). These are my favourite categories that we have used so far, find it is a good balance for all positions.

Have previously done Score (2), Kicks, Handballs, Marks, Tackles, Hitouts, Contested Possessions, Rebounds, Clearances and Spoils. Found this to be too midfielder orientated.

Cheers .. I'm floating it by the crew now on FB chat (for next year) .... first impressions are damn good. I hate free kick differential .. especially this weekend where I had Tom Hawkins get a lovely -6 .. haha

In the first year I played we just used the standard stats and shelved that pretty quickly. I agree on the free kicks, It's no fun cheering for your players to get a free kick instead of doing something with the ball.

I quite liked the free kick differential one, it meant teams could lose a stat instead of winning it which made clos games where a side lacked players in the final game o two of the round more interesting.

We are running with s standard set of score/kicks/handballs/marks/hitouts/tackles with the more fluid ones being contested possessions/rebound 50's/spoils which is proving to not be too heavy on any one area of the ground. Forwards are probably the weakest spot in this, so we were thinking of removing one of the last three categories and making score worth two points but that's to be determined.

We’ve only formed our keeper league this year, but it’s gotten ridiculously serious (I’m absolutely loving UF!)

Happy to be told these are terrible weightings to help us improve them for next season...

SCOR: 5
KI: 3
HB: 2
MK: 3
TK: 5
HO: 2
FF: 1
FA: -2
DE%: 5
CP: 1
RB50: 3
CL: 3
SP: 3

10 team league, 18 on the field, 28 on a list.

Here’s my side:

We are into our 6th year I think...

Categories are Score, Kicks, Handballs, Tackles, Marks, Hit Outs & Spoils.

Starting field
5 back
4 Mid
5 fwd
2 utility
4 bench for each position
3 emerg

16 team comp.

We removed ruck a few years ago to make it more strategic.
Less mids & more backs & fwds to stretch the player pool & place value on identifying talent later in the draft
Spoils brings the KPB into the game - ie Harris Andrews could be drafted top 25-30 next year. Gibbo was generally a top 10 ranked player.
2 utility provides flexibility & strategy - no rucks, 1 ruck or 2/3 rucks (r/f)

Other features -
FA lockout over weekend. Waivers become important.
Trades automatic but can be vetoed
TOG - 30% I think

We've had our fantasy league for about 6-7 years, but switched it to a Keeper League this season on Ultimate Footy and are very happy with it.

We've come up with our own scoring formula which we find works very well and closely aligns with SC scores. This is the breakdown:

KI: 2 (an effective kick will get you 4 points, as per ED, Ineffective -1)
HB: 0 (an effective handball will get you 2 points, as per ED, Ineffective -3)
MA: 3
HO: 1
TA: 3
FF: 1
FA: -4
GL: 9
BH: 1
ED: 2
IED: -3
CP: 2
R50: 1
CL: 2
SP: 1

10 team league, 18 on the field, 34 on a list.
Minimum list changes = 4 (Trades do not count - must be delistings)

I'm in a 10 team keeper league that has been running for 7/8 years now. Squad size of 40, maximum of 25 keepers.
We have 11 categories which are: Kicks, Handballs, Disposal %, Marks, Hit Outs, Tackles, Spoils, Rebound 50's, Score, Score % and Contested Possessions.

Contested Possessions was brought in for the 2019 season to replace Free Differential. I was SUPER keen for this as I have 3 of the top 6 in CP in the AFL with Tom Mitchell, Patrick Cripps, and Ben Cunnington, but devastated with the Tom Mitchell news :(

Starting Field:
5 Backs
5 Mids
2 R/F (we have a rule where you must have at least one R or R/F eligible player in this slot, you can't just play 2 forwards here)
5 Forwards
3 Utils
1 x Emg for each position

This is my current squad which I have to trim to 25 in a few weeks:
Backs: Steven May, Shannon Hurn, Tom Jonas, Bachar Houli, Dan Houston, Brad Sheppard, Dylan Roberton, Shane Savage, Andy Otten (B/F), Jackson Trengove (B/F), Riley Bonner, Lee Spur

Mids: Tom Mitchell, Patrick Cripps, Marc Murphy, Liam Shiels, Ben Cunnington, Touk Miller, Dion Prestia, Nathan Jones, Dom Tyson, Anthony Miles, Mark Blicavs (B/C)

Rucks: Zac Smith, Mason Cox, Nathan Vardy, Majak Daw, Andrew Phillips

Forwards: Jack Riewoldt, Eddie Betts, Charlie Curnow, Orazio Fantasia, Tim Membrey, Dale Thomas (C/F), Mitch Wallis (C/F), Brett Deledio (C/F), Travis Boak (C/F), Luke Dahlhaus (C/F), Zac Fisher (C/F), Brandon Matera (C/F)
