Head-Case Fantasy Football

Recommended Posts

Any interest in setting up a head-case fantasy football league? I'd likely just create a league through espn's fantasy football unless someone has a better idea.

Yahoo has a pretty good Fantasy Football system. I have not used ESPNs, but I would be interested in joining a Fantasy Football league.

X2 on Yahoo's Fantasy football system. I did play NFL.com fantasy football league as well and it was fun too. I would be down for Fantasy football :D

i like fantasy football, in theory, but it seems like too much work, in practice.

Well, you and I could be the lazy owners who forget to take out players who are on the bye week.

The hardest part of Fantasy is getting everyone to agree on a draft date and time, but even that you can line up your picks before hand and let the computer pick for you from your picks.

Usually there are 10 people, but we can get by with 6 people and have plenty of good players to draft. It really isn't that much work and Yahoo has a nice analysis system that gives you advice on who to bench and who to play. The default rules are pretty good also.

I was thinking just having the computer pick the players for you and then just using the default rules. Yahoo is great in that it lets you know if that player has a bye week.

I guess this did not happen last year but I would definitely be interested in participating if we can get one going this year. I have done Yahoo and ESPN and I actually preferred ESPN.

I've done ESPN, enjoyed it, and am up for another go as well.

Be warned, I suck.

Do you mean live drafting as in everyone gets in a room and does the draft together, while drinking heavily, or do you mean drafting your own players and not letting the computer choose them for you, while drinking heavily.

How many people would we need to make this worthwhile, 10? 12?

Count me in, I'd love to do another league this year. I think we need at least 10 to make it work though.

Yeah I think a 10 team unit with active participants is about perfect.

Todd, if you are no longer interested in managing the league let me know and I will set one up.

Yeah, I prefer for the computer to do it for me while I drink heavily.

I was hoping you would drink heavily during and draft 14 kickers or the whole Detroit Lions squad so I could be guaranteed a freebie week during the season. ;)

Looks like we have five confirmed at the moment so we need 5 more to make this happen.

I am interested but have never done a fantasy league before, so if you guys are ok with having at least one newb in then I'm game.

No problem with newbies, but if we don't get some more players in the next couple of weeks I don't think it is going to happen.

At the moment we have 6 confirmed team owners. We can start a league with 6 owners but eight or ten would be a lot better. If everyone that wants to play will PM me their preferred e-mail I will set up an 8 Owner league and we will delete the two extra teams if we get no more interest.

Ouch! The truth sucks :palm: 45+ year a Lions fan. Is there a worse franchise in the NFL?

Sorry, at least you had Barry Sanders for a while.

Alright, our roster as of today is:

Salt Peanuts

The Monkey

Raffy

Sherwood

NMaher

VPI

I am waiting on an e-mail from Aura to send an invite and then if we can coerce one more owner we will be able to field a workable league.

Be sure to vote for your preferred live draft date on the league page so we can get that figured out.
