a RL friend asked to join in the last min, if anyone is available for the draft (today at 5 pm ET), would be cool.

We are 20/20 now  ;D

I'll be there.

A few questions:

- The scores of the 10 players called 'starters' all count the same (there's no real starting 5)?
- How does Free Throw Percentage and Field Goal Percentage work?

Is it the average of all players' percentages? So if a players shoots 0/1 it adds 0% and damages your score dramatically and what about players who are absent? Or is it the total number of makes by all players divided by their attempts (which makes more sense)?

- For turnovers, that's about getting the least amount, I would assume?
- And you can change your line-up everyday, so that basically means that you can set up your players in every game they play?

A TP for creating this league to you.

So, at the beginning of every week you ll have to set your roster for every day. All that matters is who plays which day.

Quote
- How does Free Throw Percentage and Field Goal Percentage work?

So, imagine on a given week three of your players played. A had 1/2 FTs, B had 3/5 and C had 2/3. Your FT% for that will be 1/2+3/5+2/3 = 6/10. (that is you add each players numbers NOT the %s). Same for FG%. It works the same way as FT% calculated for a teams boxscore.

So, yes, if a player has 0/1 it will affect your total FT% very little. If on the other hand a player has 6/20 it will have a much greater impact.

Yes, TOs the less the better.

Not sure what you mean in the last question. If you play a bit with the settings on the ESPN site it should become clearer.

I would consider it but I can't do 5. I won't be around until 730 or later. Plus you don't have an IR slot either.
