If there are any Fantasy Football addicts out there like me then now is your chance!

I created a Droid X Fantasy Football League at Yahoo!
12 Teams. Pretty standard settings to start with just to get people involved.

The dedicated url is: Droid X Fantasy League (http://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/league/droidxleague)

If that doesn't work then the league information is:
League Name: Droid X
League ID#: 423154
Password: android

I haven't set a draft date yet. I figured we could discuss that or do a slow email draft if that was more convenient for everyone. All that is up in the air still. I was just concerned with filling it first.

If we have a big enough demand for it we can always do more than one league.

What type of draft will we be doing? Depending on everyone location and time zones a live draft might be hard to pull off. Unless its on weekend. Just currious.

because of the time zones I figured we could do a slow email draft. -- 1 team picks then forwards their pick to the next team and/or the rest of the league. There won't be a time limit but once you get the email pick your player and send it off again. There are sites that can create a random draft order for us.

It's a bit of a pain but it's the only way to ensure everyone actually gets to pick their players instead of having an autopick.

Guess i never did that type before. If no time limit what if a person just dosent pick. that would screw up the draft. seems like there is always that one person that joins but never drafts.

I just created my team 'lumberton raiders' that was my highschool football team. But yea a slow email would be cool. Start it earily in the day and just keep it going throughout the day!

I do 2 drafts a year like this. They take a few days to a week to finish but generally, if you're serious about playing, you can't wait for the emails! As long as people are serious about playing and understand what we're doing it should move along smoothly. Plus, if we can, maybe we can have a thread here dedicated to it. Obviously this is where we're all from so if we all subscribe to the thread and enable instant email notification we should be kept fully aware of what's going on and whose turn it is to pick.

Once we get the league filled we can discuss when to start the draft. I'm always leery of drafting too early due to preseason injuries but with this type of draft we can't wait too long to get it started. It's going to take a few days to get through it.

I suggest we wait on the draft until 8/26. This leaves 2 weeks before the first game to get the draft done. I'm watching too many guys get hurt this weekend.

The later the better in my book. Preseason is always filled with injuries and nothing sucks more than watching one of your high draft picks get carted off the field.

The 26th sounds good to me. As of right now, we'll plan on starting it then. I'll post full instructions on the slow email draft once the league is full just so everyone knows what we're doing.

Thanks for the thanks!

The league is officially full!

I started a "Group" called the Droid X Fantasy Football League. I encourage everyone who signed up for the league to join. It'll be where we can discuss the league away from the main forum. Go -> HERE <- (http://www.droidxforums.com/forum/groups/) for the Groups section of the site. You'll see the Droid X Fantasy Football League group. Just click on it and join!!

For anyone still interested, I started a 2nd Fantasy Football League. Anyone who didn't get to join the first one OR if you're already in the first one and just want to do another one, here's the info:

League Name: Droid X #2

According to the yahoo site only 4 people besides me have their emails showing. That's fine but I'm about to use fftoolbox.com to generate a random draft order. It requires email addresses. I'm going to fill in a bogus email address in place of those that have them hidden. Besides the email you'll receive (if your email is available), I'll post the results here so everyone will know what position they're drafting in. Feel free to mock draft away then!!

I don't know about you but I'm getting a little anxious!

Ok, since we've already discussed the slow draft for this league that's how it's gonna be. No online draft.

I have a myfantasyleague.com draft already set up. I'll be sending out the link through the site to each of the teams, it'll include a password which you can login and enter any additional info. Familiarize yourself with the site and we'll still plan on starting the draft at noon on the 26th.

The teams that haven't provided and email obviously WON'T get an email. I'll post a link here to the site and hopefully the 2 teams which have failed to speak up will follow the link and fill in their info in order to participate. If not, is anyone opposed to removing the 2 teams?

I just sent out invite links to the site that will be hosting the draft. Once you login you can change your password.

The draft is set to start tomorrow (the 26th) at 10am EST. Usually you'll receive an email when it's your turn and maybe when each person picks. It's sent from the site not from any other player/team. There's a league chat and franchise owner activity section to see who's online. Hopefully we can get through it fairly easily.

I'm in a league, from the same site, that started this type of draft on Sunday. We're on the 9th round of 16 already.

If anyone has questions about anything...please let me know either through email or pm.

Please check your emails you signed up on the yahoo site with or the ones you provided me with. It includes the league url and your login information/password for the draft.

If you need me to tell you your password...let me know.

Here is the url for the draft site: Droid X Fantasy League (http://www30.myfantasyleague.com/2010/home/61148)

A direct link to the live draft room will only appear once the draft starts. If it isn't on the MAIN page you have to click the For Owners link in the menu at the top of the page then the Live Draft Room link. A new window will open with the draft room.

08-26-2010, 11:33 AM
The draft is officially underway. Each team will have a maximum of 12 hours to choose a player otherwise the highest ranking player on their "Draft List" will be chosen. If nothing is listed in their draft list then highest ranking player according to the site's ADP list will be chosen.

Once again, the idea of the slow draft is to allow everyone time to make their picks since we can't all be online at once. Please be patient with those who aren't available immediately when it's their turn. Most of us have jobs, families or whatever else may be a higher priority and can't be online all the time.

With any luck since it's only 10 teams the draft won't take very long.

Well, there were 2 problems for the draft website.

1. The commissioner typed in my email address wrong so that I never received any email from the website. Therefore I never received an invite or login info.
2. 24 hours ago, I tampered with the MX entry for my email server in an attempt to get PUSH email to my Droidx. This resulted in about 70% of my email getting lost in the internet.

I think it's all good now.
