    Well, it's that time of year again. Football season is right around the corner, and our league has been quite successful the past 2 seasons. No league has been set up for this season yet, as I want to gauge the board's interest first.

    So, who's in? And what type of league set-up do you want to see?

    Eidolonic - The Jamaalocaust
    Typhon - Replacement Refs
    halfwaydecent - No Talent
    Kensington - Pacific Kaiju
    MonkeyEpoxy - Sticky Simians
    Rah - Polar Brah's
    Mage - You Only Need One Ball
    Silentclock - Adrian Beaterson
    Azrael's Little Helper - No Ultrasmurfs Allowed
    Kai Shek - Homicidal Hicks
    Don E. Delivery -Good Times
    Klael - InsertOffensive NameHere

    I'm in. I think the more people we can get in it the better. A 14 team league would be pretty sweet though I think they've just been 10 the past couple of years.

    Doing .25 ppr could make things more interesting, however I'm pretty traditional so certainly fine without ppr. There are some better scoring systems out there than what we used last week (having to do with weekly points scored not just your matchup) however I don't believe they're available on ESPN and ESPN is very convenient.

    I'm in, again. A little jaded that y'all ignored my NBA Fantasy League! but I definitely enjoyed playing w/ DLPers last season. Let me know how to sign up.

    Personally, I like the matchup format for NFL and ROTO for NBA, but hey, I'm willing to cater to the whims of the fearless leader silentclock.

    Not really sure if it would be my place to join considering I'm a bit of a no name on DLP with a past that involved a lot of lurking, but I'd be willing to join if at all possible.

    In again also. Hopefully this time not getting dominated early on and having to claw my way back.

    So I wanted to start up a little mini fantasy football thing for my family, since we're all generally interested in it, and it seemed like it would be interesting.

    Any advice for setting up something like this for four people? Is it even possible?

    You can just create an account on ESPN's website and then create a Fantasy Football league from the Fantasy Football link under the Fantasy and Games tab of the website. While creating the league you can set the number of members to 4.

    All right, we've got 7 people. So we need at least 3 more, preferably 5 more for a 12 team league. And then we can work out a draft date.

    I'm ready for another go.

    Last season my team performed miserably.

    Would it be just a regular draft or would it be an auction draft?

    We've done snake drafts the past 2 seasons. I suppose we'll stick with that, unless a majority of the league would prefer auction.

    Edit: I had meant to respond to this last night, but it slipped my mind.

    A 4-team league would have one main problem: every team would be absolutely stacked. The problem there is, there's less room for better players to separate themselves from worse players. While luck plays a role in all fantasy sports, it'll be huge in this type of league. That may or may not be an issue. If it's four new players who don't care overly much about the competitive aspect, it shouldn't matter.

    You may try greatly increasing the number of starters. That should help make it a bit more competitive.

    Can the draft be in Early August?

    I'll be busy on the 28th-31st of July..and will probably be out on the 2nd of August.

    Are you available after that though? I would presume we'd try to do it towards the end of August.

    Yes, there's still room. We'll still need 2 more for a 10 team league, but a 12 team league would be preferable.

    Count me in, then. And I've only ever played traditional (matchup, no PPR), but I'm willing to do whatever. PPR seems like it would add some depth.

    Yeah, yeah.

    I'm almost always in. Feel like I've won the regular season like 3 of the 5 years on DLP, only to have my team shit the bed come playoffs.

    ~E~ Snake Draft, please - as close to start as season as possible.

    No one likes getting RNG fucked by late preseason game injuries.

    0.5 PPR is fine with me. Is what I run in some of my more competitive leagues.

    All right, well, we've got our 10. I'd still like to get 2 more if anyone's interested. But since we've got our 10, we can go ahead and start getting things set up. If you're playing, please PM me an email address.
