Yahoo's fantasy football is now online for registration. I signed up my league at work and there are plenty of draft times open. I have notified Chip R that it is up and running so hopefully the Redszone league will be up and running soon for those interested. If you are interested in playing fantasy football, please post here so we'll know how many leagues and the sizes of each to setup. Thanks.

Count me in, if you've got the room. I've been to the super bowl 2/3 years I've played, winning it all once.

Uhm... is it difficult? Never played a fantasy sport before. But I'd be willing to give it a shot, if ya don't think I'd bring down the property values. ;)

Not difficult if you follow whichever sport you're playing and know who the good players are. You may get your butt beat the first couple weeks of the season, but you'll catch on. If its your first season, I wouldn't recommend making any trades early until you're confident you know what you're doing.

Also a little note. Fantasy Sports are more addicting than crack, but I would still suggest you play :mhcky21:

I'll do it if the draft time works for me. None of that autopick crap though. I hate that.

I work 6:30 to 3:00 Mon. - Fri. so weekends or night drafts are good for me. :thumbup:

Notes: This is a league that will have a live online draft on Thursday, August 19th at 9:00pm. Also, this league will be using individual defensive players, not defensive teams (makes homework for drafting a little harder, but makes the season a LOT more fun, IMO). The scoring is noted above. There are 9 spots open after signing up my team. Everyone is welcome, and I can change it to 12 teams if there are people interested. All first-timers are welcome, and I will try to assist anyone as much as I can if you are a first timer.

I'm having problems getting in. Is Redszone League II the ID as well as the name? It gives me four different error messages.

I don't much about football so I will not do it. I registered at first but I am deleting my team. I love football but I don't know as much as I thought I did :(

Thanks Burn for the suggestion but I won't.
I really don't know how to rank people good. I already have a full season fantasy baseball team. that continues from one season to season. signing players to contracts.

Go Bengals :)

There are only 10 spots right now. If there are two more teams interested in playing, let me know and I'll open it up to 12.

What does autopick mean? and what day, hour, and minute does the autopick take place?

What does autopick mean? and what day, hour, and minute does the autopick take place?
Autopick means that you rank your players and it automatically picks them for you. What will happen is I'll give you guys a heads up a few days before I make it draft ready. Then, after I make the league draft ready, sometime in the next 48 hours your players will be drafted for you. I will make the league draft ready sometime in the last week of August.

Thanks, Chip...that explains why I couldn't pre-rank any players.

Chip R
08-14-2004, 10:58 PM
Eric, you should be able to pre-rank your players by going into your team and choosing the pre-rank players option.

Chip, on Redzone I, someone mentioned the possibility of doing a live draft instead of the autopick. Your thoughts?
