SDMB Big League Fantasy Football 2019


Last year's thread


This will be year 11 of this league.

You must attend the draft to play in this league. Auto drafted teams are not viable due to the structure of it.

Also, please don't change your name dramatically. I know some people like a new funny name each year, but when we did that no one ever knew who they were playing because the names changed so often. It's better to be identifiable and have people remember who you are. So either keep something similar to the name you've been using in this league, or something close to your SDMB name.

Provisional draft date will be Wed, Sep 4 at 8 eastern. That is our traditional (relative) draft time.

We will be recruiting at least 2 new players this year to get us back to 20, and any replacements we need for anyone who isn't staying this year. Priority will be given to SDMB members, but if we come up short then friends and family can be invited in this league so long as they will attend the draft and play out the year with us without quitting.

Due to a change in the way yahoo handles renewing leagues, it automatically renews everyone without anyone actually accepting an invite, which means that I don't know who actually would want to accept their invite. To get around this, I had to boot and re-invite everyone to the league. Please accept your invite if you intend to play, or PM me or post on this thread if you won't be playing this year.

Any sort of changes or proposals are open for discussion. One I remember getting general agreement during the draft was that we'd get rid of kickers this year, if only to save the 20 or so minutes they add to the drafting process.

Woohoo! I'm in.

Draft date works fine for me. I'm back on the east coast now, so it will be a late night.

It's the most wonderful time, of the year...

Draft time works for me. Remember, nom early, nom often.

I think last year we were discussing getting rid of kickers?

Did I do this last year? I know I did a few but I'll be damned if I can remember which one...regardless...I got an invite to do this one and I'm cool with it. Draft day works for me too.

ETA: Ha! Shows what I know, my invite was for a different Fantasy league. See? Told you I can't remember these things

I'm in again. Draft time is a little early for me, but I think I can make it work.

I think I’m out this year (and likely next). Grad school classes only meet Wednesday and completely cover the draft. Sorry y'all.

I'm in (Tean Anon) but not sure about Alex, I asked him, no answer yet, but am hesitant because I'm embarrassed by his lack of participation last year
