Madden 19 Team Draft

Discussion in 'VGFL - Sim Madden League' started by dwevans, Jul 23, 2018.

  1. @VGFL Member

    Thank you everyone who has been involved in Madden 18 and especially to those who have been with us since M17 too.

    The league has gone through a number of changes over the last year and we have moved into a really strong position at the end of this iteration with a solid membership that I hope is buying more and more into the philosophy of making this league as realistic as possible.

    Yesterday the team draft order was posted. I created a system that I hope will stand us in good stead for the future. This full formula was:

    The three league founders (Brunty, Dean and Dane) get a 0.6 bonus


    Full Seasons in M18 (minimum of 6 games) x 0.17


    Previous Maddens x 0.1


    (1 - Winning %) x (Games Played in M18 x 0.01))


    (0.5 - Winning % x (Games Played in M18 x 0.025)


    M18 Games Missed x 0.01


    Bans in M18 x 0.015


    Random Number between 0 and 1 x 0.1​

    The calculation itself therefore balances duration of league membership and helping worse players against bans and long periods of autopilot. There is also a small random element which adds to the drama!

    This has resulted in the following order:


    Players who are on the waiting list have been included in the order but do not take their place unless people drop out. If you are playing in the league currently your place is secure as long as you plan on continuing in Madden 19. If, for example, I declined to play in this upcoming season, Dane would be offered my place and if he accepts it he will slot in at 8th spot in the draft. If he doesn’t it will be offered down the list and draft order affected accordingly.

    Once we have 32 confirmed, we can start drafting.

    PLEASE NOTE when choosing teams:

    1. We may make some slight tweaks to the base roster if some stats are felt to not accurately represent reality. We will review proposed sim rosters that exist on Operation Sports shortly after the game’s release and base these decisions on some of those that exist there.
    2. Rookie Development: Each year madden does their best guesswork (with bias) on what rookies will be successful. It doesn’t get these right very often and after all these are players who have never played a snap in the NFL and do quite often bust. All drafted rookies will therefore go through a system I have created to randomly determine their development. This will be a weighted system that is influenced by draft position but takes any developer bias and some of the hype out of the equation.

      The top 5 picks have the highest chance of higher Devs, 6-15 next highest, 15-32 next highest, 2nd round, 3-4 and then 5-UD respectively. The odds of these will be consistent with that of the M19 draft classes.

      If your team had multiple first round rookies (e.g Browns) then they will have a higher chance of having a Dev trait but not guaranteed and we will do the random draw for this after the team draft.

      You can play around with the file attached here but I will need to adjust the odds once these have been worked out in M19.

      Good luck in the team draft!
