We had a league in years past, and maybe there is one this year and I'm just not invited lol, but are we doing a league or not?

We're set as points, but we can do head to head if thats the preference, everything set up right now is changeable based on people we get and such later.

Haven't played FF in a few years but I'm getting the itch. I'm game!

BoydsOfSummer
08-24-2007, 01:08 PM
I'd rather play H2h.

team Defense; no individual defensive players

QB's are too points heavy as is. Maybe 3 or 4 points for td passes since completions count.

Joseph

I have no objections to those changes being made as long as everyone else is cool with them

Is this league going to have a live draft? If so, I would probably join and I know two other people who probably would also.

BoydsOfSummer

Either way is cool with me. I'm all ranked up and ready to roll.

I just think drafting players is half the fun in terms of a fantasy season. You have all the choice of who will be on your team and can use your own strategy to draft a good team.

Joseph
08-24-2007, 06:48 PM
Just like everything else, we can set up the draft live or whatever.

Topcat

I will join but not till after long weekend if its possible> Ps. 1 week in isn't going to make any difference honestly.

HumnHilghtFreel
08-24-2007, 07:18 PM
I prefer the live draft, but I've already set some pre-rankings just in case.

Joseph
08-24-2007, 07:31 PM
Topcat, go ahead and join, and if we do a live draft you can just let that choose for you and you won't have to miss a week of points or anything.

uoduck1017
08-24-2007, 07:42 PM
Hey Joseph, so far, how many teams have signed up? Also what is the max number of teams?

BoydsOfSummer
08-24-2007, 07:45 PM
Six of us now. If we had 12 we could have three divisions and a wild card.

Maybe we could sneak a notice onto one of the other more frequented boards pointing to here?

Joseph
08-24-2007, 07:49 PM
The max is set at 10 right now, but like everything, it can be changed if enough interest is shown.

Would I be allowed to invite people who aren't from RedsZone? They are great players who would be very active.

08-24-2007, 09:32 PM
I've got one going on now with a lot of folks who usually play but there are 2 spots open. We're doing h2h with an auto draft. Team defense with 1 defensive player. First 2 to respond to me via PM are in.

I've upped it to 20, not that we have to have 20, but more of you can sign up if you want.

joshnky
08-26-2007, 02:33 PM
I'm signed up and ready to go. I'd like to echo the support for a live draft. Those that don't want to or can't participate can always have their team autodraft based on their rankings.

Joseph
08-26-2007, 03:00 PM
also, 4 or 6 playoff teams?

I jumped in with the Bilardellos. Not a great FF player, but I usually come in 1st-3rd in the open yahoo leagues.
I will say, I am much better with live drafts.

QB's are too points heavy as is. Maybe 3 or 4 points for td passes since completions count.

We either need to drop the points/TD or change points/completion to 1 point rather than two. Also, shouldn't interceptions be worse than -1? Maybe -2 to match fumbles. If we don't make these changes I'm definately drafting QBs early and often.

Joseph

I assume you're joking cause I have no idea how to set up divisions.

I'll fix the QB scoring too.

13 teams! This league is the biggest one I've ever been in. I hope we can get 7 more people to join that will be interesting.

BoydsOfSummer
08-27-2007, 06:31 AM
I noticed you changed the completion points to one. That won't work; every QB will have negative points in that ratio. A guy that goes 20 for 25 will have -5 points.

It wouldn't hurt my feelings if that part of scoring for QB's was taken out.

No, a QB who goes 20 for 25 will have 15 points (20 completions - 5 incompletions). It does matter to me what we do but a QB who completes more than 50% of his passes will earn points and vice versa.

Joseph
08-27-2007, 09:30 AM
Josh is right. It's 1 point per completion, and -1 for incompletions. So your example would net the QB 15 points.

If everyone wants to drop the completions, receptions and other similar qualifiers, let me know, I'm fine with it.

BoydsOfSummer

So what's our next step in this thing?

Oh, I see the live draft is set for Monday the 3rd at 3:00 P.M. I've never done these things before. How will that work? What if we aren't able to be around then?

If you don't think you can make it, be sure to set your pre-ranks on your "My Team" page.

Joseph
08-28-2007, 10:14 AM
Got 14 teams now. If we get many more [which is ok] I'll probably only have one starting QB per week so as to balance things better.

BoydsOfSummer
08-28-2007, 11:04 PM
Two starting QB's is too many. We need one person for 16 teams. That is thinning it out pretty good. I'd like to see: Qb, RB, RB, WR, WR, TE, WR/TE, K, Def.

joshnky
08-29-2007, 03:49 PM
Please, no defensive players. It just makes things too complicated. Picking one starting defense is enough.

Also, how firm is the 3:00 draft time? Earlier in the day would be preferable for me but I can make arrangements if no one else feels the same.

Agreed, individual defensive players makes my chest start to hurt.:eek: Except for the one in my avatar. Clay is a bad bad man.

I can draft anytime that day. Start classes the next,though. I say shut it off if we snag a sixteenth. Anybody have a sixteenth?

Joseph

That makes us full boys [and girls?].

The draft is set for Monday at 3 PM EST [I'm pretty sure, you can log in and verify].

If you can't make it, just pre-rank your players or let the yahoo rankings draft for you.

I like this format too.

BoydsOfSummer
08-31-2007, 05:07 PM
Qb, RB, RB, WR, WR, TE, WR/TE, K, Def.

We are drafting more than these, correct? We might have a misunderstanding. On the site it looks like that is it for players. I meant ( and I'm sure BoxingRed too) that is what we should start every week, not only draft that many. I'm prolly wrong again.

This is what it says on the sight:

Roster Positions:QB, WR, WR, RB, RB, TE, W/T, W/R, K, DEF, BN, BN, BN, BN

I'm assuming that means we have 4 backup positions but someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Joseph

Correct, we'll have 14 roster spots and start 10 per week.

As far as the draft goes, how long do we have for each pick and about how long might the thing last? I'm trying to figure out how much time I need to set aside for this.

Joseph
09-02-2007, 02:15 PM
I'm not sure, I've only done live once before and can't recall the time.

NJReds
09-02-2007, 03:17 PM
I've never been in a league with 16. But I believe you get 1 minute, 30 seconds for each pick. The length of time for the draft depends on how many people are live and ready. The first few rounds usually go pretty quick, then it slows down a bit.

BoydsOfSummer
09-02-2007, 03:56 PM
I have a 12 of Sammy Summer Ale chilling in the fridge. It shouldn't take longer than that.:D My small gift to you guys; I thought I'd handicap myself a little.:thumbup:

I won't be home from work till after 4 so I am trying to rank my first 2 or 3 rounds. Probably should let the computer do it, but that's no fun.

Why did you sign up if you weren't going to participate? Even if you don't like your team at least take Terry Glenn out of your starting line up. I'm no expert but I think Kevin Curtis might have been a better start this week than the injured Glenn. Your team is currently a virtual bye week for your opponent.

And your regular season champion is... Joshnky! Not that the competition was very stiff. Its easy to win when over half the teams in the league started players injured or on a bye at some point in the season.

I'd like to thank Ryan Grant and Wes Welker for my victory as they picked up the slack when little was expected from them.

If Razor realizes that he is in this league and starts Andre Johnson over Ronnie Brown I think his team could easily win the thing.

Never mind. Thanks to a stat correction, Redskins#1 picked up an extra point and the week 14 victory. It appears that he edges me out with higher points. Oh well, I still get the bye.

I did win a public league so that is my consolation prize I guess
