Here we are, it’s year 4 in what I’ve declared to be the league of the SDMB’s fantasy football elite. Except Jules Andre.
This is not a recruitment thread at the moment, as everyone who was in the league last year is invited back. 9/12 have accepted so far. I’m giving the other three another week and a half - should there be empty slots then I’ll start recruiting to fill them. I think Omniscient and Bozoholic Squid, PI have expressed an interest in joining the league, and I know them both to be reliable FF players.
For the moment, our draft is scheduled for Monday, August 31st at 9pm eastern. If this is a hard time for people we can reschedule it, but speak up soon as prime time draft slots get full. It’s after the third week of preseason so most of the potential preseason injuries will be determined by that point.
Our league settings (compared to default) can be found here.
I’m open to suggestions for rule changes.
Yahoo has a system this year for putting all free agents on waivers from Sunday-Tuesday, so we’ll probably use that instead of our manual waiver system if it works well. One problem is that yahoo doesn’t have a “5 minutes before game” option for when players go on waivers - it’s either Sunday morning or at the start of the first game. First game would be a pain in the ass, with Thursday games locking out free agents who haven’t played yet - so I suggest we set it for Sunday, but make a rule that no players of Thursday/Saturday games be picked up after their game as a free agent - instead you would wait till everyone goes on waivers that weekend and put in your claim then.
So, draft time, rules, who’s bringing the pizza, etc. Discuss!
