Is it too early to start talking about fantasy football?
I’m considering running a league this year that would be aimed at being a serious/hardcore league.
But this thread can serve as the general discussion forum for all SDMB fantasy football leagues before football season is close enough to break off into several threads. Catch up with people, discuss leagues and rules, whatever.
As far as the league I’m proposing, the main requirement is that the people who volunteered to sign up for it would be active throughout the whole season. A few people in our league last year lost interest midway through the season and stopped playing - which made things screwy for those of us still playing, when the playoff seeds could be determined by who gets the lucky matchup with the guy who hasn’t adjusted his roster and is starting 4 injured players. I’d want people who love fantasy football and will be competitive and active every week. And showing up for the live draft is a big deal, too, I think - it’s the biggest part of your season, and it’s just fun when we have everyone show up and discuss the picks as they happen. Essentially I’d like all of the most serious, competitive fantasy football players in the SDMB all in one league - I guess the All-SDMB fantasy football team. Those who already have a regular league every year would be welcome if they were okay with managing both leagues.
From there, everything is flexible. Once we decide together how many teams we’ll have, and pick who’ll be in it, we can discuss what the best scoring system, trade rules, etc. are.
Well, anyway, I’m just opening the dialog - feel free to discuss anything related to fantasy football. And tell me if you have interest in participating in the league I’m proposing.
