601 posts in this topic

The league is back once again! 10 team, H2H, with the rosters looking like this:

QB
RB
RB
RB/WR
WR
WR
TE
OP
D/ST
K

----------------------

It will be a "snake" draft, with the date on Sunday, September 4 at 7:00PM, Eastern Time. If this doesn't work for everyone, we can change it!

So far I have:

1.) Romo Ravens (Romo Ravens)
2.) -Truth-
3.) Ed_Reed20 (ER20 and The Illest Villains)
4.) PuRock (PuRock's Balls Deep)
5.) JO_75 (Team Awesome)
6.) Wacko4Zacko (Wacko4PrimeTime)
7.) ed.s52 (Team Saoud)
8.) Token (Team Coke)
9.) lowrider (my lowrider is bigger than you)
10.) AwakenTheDemon (Team ATD)
11.) FlaccoFlicker (Team Juggernaut)
12.) berad (The Mod Squad)

----------------------

So that's it. Also, to everyone who is on this list, please PM me ASAP with your emails so I can invite you guys to the league.

----------------------

[b]New Features:[/b]

Last year we didn't have an OP, or an "offensive player". I think it'd be fun to draft two QB's, or if you're Wacko4Zacko, just place another Tight End in that slot. I also made a huge mistake by messing up the championship game last year, so this year, we'll have 6 playoff teams, with the 1st and 2nd place teams getting a [b]BYE[/b] the first week of the playoffs, so bring your "A" game. I've also made some scoring adjustments and there will be a trade limit of [b]4[/b]. Waivers will be unlimited as well. So good luck!

I'm sooo looking forward to this league dude! I actually have a competitive league to go hard in, and not just a league for leisure. I needed a hard league to join, and this is the doctor's order.

I'll have to really limit my aggressiveness though. 4 trades?? I could do that in 4 weeks.... LOL. But that will be a learning experience for me that will teach me patience and strategy. Learning comes with growing pains though, but I'll give it my best shot!

Haha! The limit last year was actually 3 I think, so consider yourself lucky.. Like we talked about, I used to trade like crazy, but this is really important so peoples' teams don't get stacked and it's more competitive. Therefore, draft wisely ;)

When I go to espn fantasy football, on the sidebar it says 'my teams'. Then I look at it and click on it, and it won't go through all it says is 'coming soon'. How do I access it?

On a minor, more serious note..... could you all list your team names on here so Romo could put them in the first post as he's done with a few already?? It would make communication easier and let you know who you're going against and smack talking for the week. Thanks!

I'm in two leagues this year. One not connected to this website, and this one is. I have only ever been in one league for the last 2 years. So this year is gonna be a learning step for me that is welcomed. I will put my best into this league though, I can assure you that.

Well it should be a fun year. Last year I was in 5 fantasy leagues and I lost every single one, but the one Romo ran. Unfortunately, the only one without money involved. Either way it should be a good year. Hopefully I don't get plagued with injuries this year again....

Are you afraid you might give away secrets or strategies? I've never had that hinder any success. Last year I was one of the people that voiced their opinion most on guys/strategies on here. And I finished strong in all three BR leagues w/ one championship. Everybody has different opinions on guys. I might convince somebody about one player, while somebody else convinces me about another player, while I bump down another player that somebody else likes.

I will feast on your blood! I welcome your best effort. I've been in about 25 leagues in my lifetime and I've logged 20 mock drafts already this season. But all kidding aside, no matter how good I think my plan and BPA list are, it's a lot of luck. Injuries, situational changes, unknown breakout players, rookie production, etc. No plan can ever come close to envisioning what an NFL season entails.

Your last two sentences there explains it all. While it does take a lot of prep, draft smarts, and experience; it also takes a lucky horseshoe or a lucky teddy bear to win it all haha!

In all seriousness though, I am fully aware that I likely won't win this year. I'm okay with that. All I want is some competition in my opponents, smack talk, and a year to grow and learn from the best. As long as I don't finish dead last, then I chalk it up as success as long as I learn. If I make the 6 team playoffs, then I chalk it up as a huge victory for me, especially since I've only been in two, noncompetitive leagues so far in my 'career'.... haha

The most important thing is to stay active. Too many players think they draft and thats pretty much it. Playing the waiver wire successfully is so key. The most active players are usually the ones who win.
