AwakenTheDemon

The Return Of ATD Fantasy Football 2012-2013

735 posts in this topic

So I finally am back up and running thanks to my crappy laptop. Is anyone down for the third year of some Fantasy Football with your's truly? I'm here to, once again, be truly mediocre in my very own league.

For those of you who have not played in my league, here's how I roll.
16 Teams, Four Divisions of Four.
8 Team Playoffs
Each Division Winner Earns Playoff Spot, Remaining Four Spots going to Teams With Best Record
IDP
QB-RB-RB-WR-WR-TE-W/R/T-D/ST-K-DL-LB-DB
PPR
Stat Bonuses

What I mean by stat bonuses is the following:
For QBs: At 400 yards, you get 5.
For RBs: At 100 yards, you get 5.
For WRs: At 100 yards, you get 5.

I used to, as some know do it as such:
QBs: 5 at 200, 5 at 300, 5 at 400.
RBs: 5 at 100, 5 at 150, 5 at 200.
WRs: 5 at 100, 5 at 150, 5 at 200.

However, as we all learned, it drastically altered the game. Instead of being a bonus it was more a game breaker. So I've scaled it back year after year to find a real balance.

Now, as you can see from my positions, it [i]will[/i] be a long draft, my leagues always are. So if you're down, please be available for the long haul. The draft is worth it, we always have a blast every year. I'd love to keep this going.

So, let us begin. I need 16 people, well... 15 since I'm already there. Once I get enough people, I'll get the league started.

I'm down and I'll join your league ATD. I also am wondering what is happening with the Pick'em League this year.

The Pick 'Em League will most likely return as well. I'm just looking ahead to see what I'll [i]exactly[/i] be doing this year (i.e. a lot more forum involvement like the first year vs. Yahoo! Pick 'Em League with a thread as well). What that will depend upon is if I get this job as a 911/County Dispatcher or not. But it will probably be returning. Sign ups will probably be around the end of the month.

Another good list of BR members. The chance to rule them all is to enticing to pass up. Count me in.

I'm in.

Trying to scale back the number of leagues I'm in, but I should be more than capable when participating in only one other league.

My leagues are always on Yahoo, guys.

I have the draft set for August 11th, at 2PM EST. I'm not leaving it on that time, it was just randomly set. I'm looking for some agreement on what time works best for all.

The info for the league has been PMed to all.

For those who need some pointers, here's what you do with the information:

1. Head to [url="http://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/f1/register/joinleague"]Yahoo's Fantasy Football Join League Page[/url]
2. On the left is "Accept Invite", enter the League ID number in the League ID field, and the password in the Password Field
3. Hit "Join Your League"

I only just realized that my inbox was full so if you could re-send the details, that would be great.

I'll be out of the country from the 11th 'till the 20th so any date before or after would work better for me. I'll still try to make it for the live draft regardless but I can't promise anything if the draft falls between these dates. I'll go hard on the pre-draft rankings just in case.

18th and 19th are impossible for me, unfortunately... Got a friends wedding coming up on the 18th, and with travelling times that'll take up all off the weekend... anytime from the 20th forward i'll make it work... I'll set my rankings if no better (for me) date can be agreed upon ;)

What time frame on the 25th will be best? Early afternoon or at night? I'll set it tentatively at 9:30pm.

Also, four people of the 16 haven't joined the league itself, please do guys.

Yep. Im gonna love winning this division lol. I havent drafted with er20 or ATD yet I dont believe, but I feel like I came out of the last draft with the top team. I personally wonder how much this draft will be different from the nfl.com one on here.
