It’s All Part Of My Football Fantasy
I’ve set up our fantasy football league again this year. A few tweaks:
1) We’ll be organized into two divisions if we have more than 12 or more teams.
2) WR’s are slightly less important this year. Reception yards are now 10 yards per point. 0-9 yards = no points; 10-19 yards = 1 point; etc. Reception touchdowns are now 4 points, plus one point for the reception.
If you want to join, set your browser to http://y.ahoo.it/xAeZhm3o. Last year’s players have been e-mailed invitations, so look out for that. I suppose we could set up a second league if there is enough interest, but let’s see how this one goes.
Draft day is August 23, 2014, at noon Pacific time. Why Pacific time? Because I’m in the Pacific time zone, that’s why. If that’s the biggest inconvenience you have to deal with, put your list together well and autopilot the draft.
So sign up with the league, start your stat-crunching, set up your draft list, and let’s get ready for some gridiron!

I failed, badly, at the limericks last year.
I blame Annapolis.
I teeter between trying again or falling back into Haiku mode.Report
One thing I remember from last year that I didn’t like was that we had one RB and three (!) WRs and one flex.
Could we do two, two, and one this year?Report
You say that like there’s a surplus of running backs worth having out there.Report
Yeah, no joke! Perhaps, however, we could add some D players and count defensive stats. I’ve been in a league where sacks and picks were point accumulating events. Just my $.02 worth.Report
Here’s what I’m thinking:
QB – RB – WR1 – WR2 – TE – Flex1 – Flex2 – K – DEF. If you want to play three or even four WR’s, go for it. Two or even three RB’s, have at it. If you’re not really interested in, you know, winning, you can play up to three tight ends.
I hear two requests for moving the draft to Sunday evening. But so far we’ve only 5 out of 16 people signed up, so I want to wait a bit and see what others prefer. There is no single time that will please everyone.Report
I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS PLAN.Report
Is it at all possible to tweak the day/time? Mid-day on a Saturday is difficult.Report
Just remembered that I will be out of town that weekend. I would need a new time for it as well.Report
All right, when should we do the draft? The next day, Sunday August 24?Report
The 24th would be fine if we done it in the evening. I should be back in town by then.Report
I am in and looking forward to it. If people were okay with it last year, I will continue the Week in Review.Report
Sure. You don’t do it the way I would do it. And that’s a good thing.Report
I am always looking for contributors….Report
