I am not as open as some of you when it comes to revealing what anglers I have selected prior to each tournament starting.  Then again, with my performance this past tournament, it is highly doubtful anyone would poach my choices... :) .

 

In fact, I don't even look at anyone elses choices when they openly list them prior to the tournament.  Not that I don't respect others opinions, but I look at it as kind of "dock talk", that I may find myself influenced into choosing someone not based on my evaluation, but based on someone elses ideas.  That would be like fishing someone elses spot...

The only reason I do it is because most people dont . Nobody gives a hoot who I select .:)

A whole freaking month to wait.  My lineup is going to change on a daily rate with this long of a wait.  I'm going kind of safe with this one but not with some of the obvious picks that are out there.  I like how the pools got broken up this tournament.  Should make it another fun one.

Well who's everybody picking other than Casey Ashley for the Classic?  I took BMP, Defoe, Howell, Connell, and Hartman.  I think it'll give me another solid finish.

I will probably regret this, but I'm not picking Casey Ashley. Looking hard at bobby lane though

Here is my team 

Ehrler

Wheeler

Faircloth

Pirch

Hartman

 

I just don't think Ashley will repeat. And I have a gut feeling the grass king faircloth is due.

Everyone is picking Ashley so I figure if I have someone who finished above him it's going to be a huge gain in points.

I have also been thinking he could have a huge finish given the possible weather and time of year.

Can someone explain, in simpler terms, how the points and rankings work when selecting anglers? Ie: attached image.

 

How are these compiled, and how does correlate to team points?

 

Sorry for the newb question. I've never played before.

Edit: I do now see that the ranks and points appear to be overall power rankings of the anglers based on 1 event thus far on Lake Martin.

 

So do these correlate to my fantasy points at all or are points based solely off where they finish on these events day by day?

 

My main question, is that in many fantasy formats, there is a high risk high reward for certain players/anglers. So will picking a low chance angler do anything more than picking Casey Ashley (as an example)? Outside of the probability aspect.

Rank and points come from performance based on tournaments so far this season. As the season goes on they'll be cumulative across events but at this point these numbers refer only to the Lake Martin event -- rank is the final placement at finish, and points are calculated from rank backward: first place is 300 points, with subsequent places earning less points based on rank. Points drop by 5 per rank for 2nd through 5th place, 4 per rank for 6th through 10th, 3 per rank for 11th through 15th, and 2 per rank for every other placement. 

 

EDIT: Your fantasy points each event will just be the sum of their points earned for that event based on where they place (plus any big fish bonus). Odds are somehow are baked into the buckets, so that the expected place finishes are lower for bucket A anglers than for Bucket E.  But there is no points bonus for picking low-odds angler who places well; points are the same for each placement no matter what bucket the angler comes from

I think he's in Bucket B due to odds. If you check the Bassmaster Classic Odds publication, there are a lot of similarities between better odd anglers (A&B), middle range (C&D), and long shot anglers (E). 

 

Most all long shot anglers in the publication are listed out in Bucket E... 🤔. I'm sure there's a reason. I just don't know it.
