Fantasy Football 2017

Postby mandalorian2298 on Thu Jul 14, 2016 2:54 pm

Here me, oh multitudes of Conquer Club! I have come down from my mountain with a wonderfull idea that shalt turn your dull gray existances into a rainbow-like paradise of thrill, mystery and nutella-like pleasure:

FANTASY FOOTBALL!!!

The NFL season won't start for almost four months and that is exactly the right amount of time for everyone who is interested to sign up and for an agreement about about the league/draft format to be reached and, with some brave hearts and a favorable wind, for the draft to be done and the teams set u for Week 1.

Any takers?

PLAYERS

1. mandalorian2298
2. Pancakemix
3. Mets
4.
5.
6.


SETUP VOTES

1) DRAFT TIME (this Saturday)

In a few months, most likely.

2) DRAFT TYPE =

Serpentine (0) -
Auction (0)


3) LEAGUE SETUP:

FLEX 0() -
NO-FLEX (0)
FLEX 2X (0)
NO-FLEX 2X (0)

This forum doesn't get a lot of visitors. If you want this thing to take off, you'll have to recruit people and lead them in here.

At this point I'm so desperate for players that I am ready to grant almost any request. Title will be changed.

Sorry Wing, but I had to change it since 1) we need players so I'm currently shamelessly sucking up to anyone willing to play ;) 2) this is the only football that I follow ever since sheiks started collecting top soccer players like Pokemon.

Salary cap + Draft = Interesting league

It's no secret, it's just only used these days for sports. tzor2001

I have a few games I do on Yahoo. It's OK. I generally prefer ESPN but a Yahoo league is nice. Before they close it down.

Would you guys happen to know any football fans interested in this game? I tried searching high and low but no bites. :( We need at least 6 (although 10 would be even better)

Well, judging by the rate with which people sign in, we SHOULD have that one new player within the next 2 weeks.

As a Croatian I feel that I shouldn't be accused of bias if I point out that this indeed is fantasy football and the game you are thinking of would be Fantasy 'Pokemon - Sheik Edition' :P .

Which fantasy football would you be interested in?
The Premier league already started ... so we missed that one.
Major League Soccer (US) started in the spring.

Let me check to see if it is not too late for the Premier League on ESPN, they seem to be down at the moment.

In (more and more likely) case that no one else signs up, would you guys be interested in playing a 5 player, Points league?

If so, what format would you like?

Since I have only ever played in Yahoo standard leagues, the only bright idea that I have would be Double Size TeamsTeams:

2QB
6WR
4RB
2TE
2K
2DEF

10BN

If you guys want to play something with roles like WR/RB etc., I'm cool with it, I just wish that we play. :D

EDIT: Is everone ok with using the NFL Fantasy Football instead of Yahoo?

I've only done the standard yahoo public leagues, where half the players aren't playing anymore by week 5... so I'm not real familiar with other setups or sites. I'm willing to give whatever site or format a try though :)

As for a live draft time... maybe a saturday so it can be morning/early afternoon for US and late afternoon/evening for europe, without interfering with work? (I don't know what time zones everyone's in... I'm in Eastern USA)

I recomed browsing the yahoo's texts about fantasy football and draft guides. I played my first season last year in the passive uninterested leagues that Hotshot mentioned.

OK guys, there is 6 of us (yay!) so we might as well go about discussing the setup. I already posted my suggestion, to which I would only add that I am OK with both the 'Points' and Head-to-Head' systems. I am voting for HtH since it should make for better weekly trash-talk and also make the game more interesting for the begginers.
