Can you pick the right team each weekend to win?
May 5, 2022 by Keith Raynor in Fantasy with 0 comments
The 2022 AUDL season is upon us. The league has, perhaps quietly, become the leading source of data on ultimate. This has enabled not only further statistical analysis, but also given us an opportunity for new types of fun. This season, our AUDL fantasy game is taking a novel direction, copying the popular format of daily fantasy sports. DraftKings is again offering lines in their sportsbook,1 and the daily fantasy model that made them a household name should make for a lot of AUDL entertainment.
We’ll assign players salary based primarily on performance, and give you a budget, and you can pick a team for the weekend within that budget. And that’s it! It is free to enter, and we’ll be awarding prizes every week, as well as a season-long prize for players who can put up good scores over multiple weeks.
Week 1 Recap
The first week presented a lot of value, with new teams, players, and undefined roles. But how sustainable are the results? That’s up to you to figure out.
The person to who had it figured out in Week 1 was Max Charles, our winner. Anchoring his lineup was the Phoenix’s Jordan Rhyne (shown in the lead photo), the week’s leading scorer, backed by 600+ throwing yards and seven assists. Pretty nice bargain for just the minimum $3 price tag. Max also rostered the second highest scorer, Leandro Marx, who delivered as anticipated in a starring role for Portland.
Max Charles, 156.83 Pts
Jordan Rhyne (PHI, 31.95), Jakob Brissette (MTL, 17.51), Tannor Johnson (BOS, 19.2), Sean McDougall (LA, 23.5), Ryan Osgar (NY, 16.51), Leandro Marx (POR, 28.37), Joe Merrill (SL, 19.78), Sol Yanuck (CAR, 12.27), Jeff Graham (BOS, 4.5)
Rounding out the weekly top three are LP Blouin, whose lineup generated 141.66 points, and Sascha Vogel, with 137.25 points.

Best Possible Lineup
Each weekly winner will receive $15 in credit with VII Apparel, so they can get some awesome AUDL gear or other cool products.
Every top three weekly finish will earn an entry into an end of season drawing to get an Ultiworld Greatest Bag.
The season long winner will receive a home and away VII jersey of their favorite AUDL team! We will determine this total by combining the seven highest scores of each entrant, so if you miss a few weekends, that’s okay. But the more you play, the better chance you have of putting up the best score.
Components of these rules (such as budget) may be adjusted between scoring periods in order to facilitate the healthiest game environment.
- Entrants will roster nine players, and their top seven scorers will count towards their total for the scoring period.
- Each player has a salary, and each entrant has $100 to spend on their nine-person roster for the scoring period. You do not need to spend the entire budget, but you cannot exceed the $100. Salaries will be displayed in a weekly spreadsheet.
- If a player plays in multiple games during a scoring period, their highest single-game score will be counted. Players are priced with consideration for this.
- One entry per person; Ultiworld reserves the right to deny prizing for any reason.
- Entries must be received prior to the start of the first game of the scoring period.
These numbers may be adjusted in order to facilitate the healthiest game environment.
- 1 pt per Goal
- 1 pt per Assist
- 1 pt per 33 Throwing Yards
- 1 pt per 50 Receiving Yards
- 4 pts per Block
- -3 pts per Turnover
