Even though the NFL lockout is still going on it doesn't mean we can't prepare for the upcoming Fantasy season. I, personally, believe we'll have an uninterrupted 17 week season.

For those who played last year, you should've already received your invitation to play again this year. If you've received your invite and haven't joined the league yet (and are still interested) you may want to do so since as of this writing I'm inviting any other members who want to play to fill the remaining spots.

No sign of defending champion aatonytone.

Here's a link to the league if you're interested in joining:
Join Custom Yahoo League (http://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/f1/register/joinprivateleague_league_select?.scrumb=)
The league ID is 37182 and the password is android.

Right now it's a 10 team league but if there's enough interest and those playing don't mind, we could always change it to a 12 team league.
It is a live draft on an as of yet undetermined date.

I had to send out a reminder to the players from last year first. It looks as though those that played last year, and are playing this year, have joined already so the league is now posted as public.

Follow the link in the original post and use the password: android to join.

Good luck!

Original post updated with the correct info for joining. The original link was only accessible to members of the league. Now the link goes to the page to join a custom league. From there you enter the league ID and and password to join.

Hope we got everything worked out finally.

Aaarrrggghhh! Not enough room unless more teams are added! Dude, I'm so looking forward to kicking your tail ;) Football is too popular here I guess.

Ok, the league isn't full yet. Sorry about all the confusion but before anyone new can join I need to know the players from last year aren't coming back. I sent out a 2nd invitation to them and they have a deadline of 7/25 to rejoin. On 7/26 I will delete the teams/managers not returning. Once that's been done new managers will be able to join. I'll make another post at that time to remind those of you interested that the league is open.

Sorry about the confusion but I didn't realize no one could join until the players from last year were removed. I have to give the managers from last year first crack. At the moment, only 2 team has signed back up. If no one else rejoins there will be 7 spots open.

I'll post again as soon as the other teams are removed.

Good luck all!

chucklehead

Right now it's set as a LIVE draft on August 28th @ 6:30pm.

The time or date isn't set in stone.
I'd like to be able to get as many people as possible in a live draft but if a time and date can't be agreed upon we'll do it like last year... if we have to​.

I am getting an error when I sign in that says "you don't belong to this league".

Is there still room?

Edit - disregard this. It worked from a computer, not really from my phone.

Should be able to by browser, but have flash enabled. But... I've had problems with Yahoo popups on my dx browser, so you might want to go ahead and rank your players in case you can't do the live draft.

I'm in health care so its the every other weekend bit for me. However I'm off the following weekend and the wife wants me to have a yard sale so if draft day was the following.g weekend it would give me something to do while people rummage through my stuff. Hint hint. Wink wink. Haha

Only if you start them. Active players only. Remember bye weeks. You don't want to start a player on a week that his team has a bye. No play=no points.

And remember that the good players will go fast, so worry more about getting good players, and less about building "your team" for auto-picking. The players you want most need to be at the top of your auto list. If you get too many WRs or RBs or QBs, you can trade, or even submit waivers to fill in gaps later.

I've had a request to reschedule the draft to 12 midnight EST.

I'll need at least 5 people to agree in order to change it. It's impossible to accommodate everyone but I'll at least make an effort.

As it stands the draft is scheduled for 6:30pm EST.
If it doesn't change... I hope to see as many people there as possible.

Good luck everyone!!

Show Me Your TDs is undefeated so far. I happen to play them this week so we'll see if I can give him his first loss of the season.
aatonytone won last year and EL GRANDE GALLO came in 2nd. This year they're both struggling.

Now that the bye weeks are here things will start to get even harder!

Good luck!!

Here are the current standings after week 13. Playoffs will be starting soon.
It's much easier to post a screenie of the standings than enter them in manually.

24015















Very close race!
Forum Trolls is the only team that's clinched a playoff spot already.
Only 3 of the next 4 ranked teams will make it.
A Win by Show Me Your TDs and a loss by one or more of the other 3 will move them up in the rankings due to points scored.

Good luck everyone!!
