For those who haven’t played Victiv NBA yet, they have an interesting solution to the late swap debate. They don’t allow late swap, but they do have a 9th roster spot for a substitute. The player must have a salary of $5K or lower and then your total score is your best 8 players (said another way, if your sub outscores anybody in your starting line-up, you get his score instead). So if you have a late scratch (or a complete dud of a game) you don’t wind up with a zero. Last night I dodged Olynyk’s terrible game and swapped in Taj Gibson’s.
How would you guys approach this format from a strategy perspective? Would you “back up” one of your starters with his real life back up or just pick another high-upside value play? How else does this format change how you construct line-ups? Any difference between GPPs and head to head?
