Fantasy Sumo League: Aki 2017

Welcome to GSB’s Fantasy Sumo League! This basho is the first time we’ve tried this system so we will probably tweak it a bit as we go. In the future we will look to make this available to anyone else who wants to try, so let us know what you think. We decided on a scoring system and drafted 5 wrestlers each, fantasy football style, to record in a spreadsheet (link). Let’s take a look at how we will score each rikishi’s performance: Continue reading “Fantasy Sumo League: Aki 2017”
