I am only in 1 league so far this year and it's a brutal 16 team nightmare. Just wondering if anybody wants to make a 10-12 person DC league that maybe missed out on one of the other leagues earlier in the preseason.

The heavy metal destruction part is optional but encouraged.

I'll sign up once I get back home, but is there any chance we could remove the return yardage scoring? Was never a big fan of that one. If not, it's not a big deal, but I figured I'd ask since you said some of the scoring rules could be discussed.

And regardless of final draft time, the League needs an even number of teams in order for the draft to happen.

We have 8 teams now. Draft time and rules are all up for debate but we need to wrap this stuff up soon. I'd really like to get two more players if at all possible.

Jakey, not sure what genre you're interested in but I've been listening to Born of Osiris a lot. They're ridiculously good.

killxswitch
09-03-2011, 12:08 AM
We're up to 9, I'd like 3 more but even just 1 more will make this a solid league and we can really dig into the rules and whatever else.

Please post when you are available to draft. Do you all have Monday off? We could try for Monday evening.

Also, I want to pair team names with people.

Bloody Pfisters - killxswitch

Shipwrecks - Jakey

Baltimore BULLETS - I assume that's you Ray Lewis/Rice

That was simply horrible...my internet connection kept dropping out every time i picked, i only made like 2 of them :(

I ended up with like 5 RB's and 3 TE's.

Somehow i managed to get the highest projected team though lol

phlysac

Why would we restart? The date and time of draft is there when you register. Conflicts and issues happen during all of these drafts and would likely be no different in a re-draft.

I've learned my lesson. ALWAYS PRE-RANK, just in case.

Aside from that... challenge yourself. Last season, I didn't pre-rank, arrived late for the draft, then had my java freeze once I was in. I didn't select a single player. I was a waiver-wire demon all season and ended up with a brand new jersey as the League Champ.

Just have fun.

It should link on your team page and send you an email.

I thought it was fair on paper (projected numbers) but MY personal opinion is that my guys will do better than projections.

I appreciate the attempt and fairness of it, and my door is open for further communication.

Jakey
09-06-2011, 09:04 AM
Yepp, i got the email now man. Thanks for the explanation, i tend to agree that they project closer than Yahoo says they do. But i tried to make a fair offer :)

I'd like to work out something for Wallace, obviously im a slight homer, but also my WR situation is not very strong.

If you can think of a trade that could land me Wallace and you would be happy, just let me know. None of my players are out of bounds, so fire away!

Yes. The scoring in this league is ridiculous. Just like in the real NFL!

I'm up for doing a dynasty, but I would've approached THIS roster differently if I knew it would become one....

But whatev, I'm up for discussion.

12-27-2011, 09:32 AM
Congrats OSU. It is great when the final game is close.

I am ok with making it a dynasty though I would want to put up a vote. And I think we'll need to get some new blood in because we had a few players that stopped doing anything. Might be better to go into the draft next year with a clean slate and intention of making it a dynasty going forward from there.

Though of course OSU wants to make it a dynasty NOW. You said it was your best team ever!

I would also like to increase to 12 players if we get the right people.

Keep me in mind if you guys need another owner. I've played FF for 16 years. I've only ran/played in a Dynasty league for family and friends the last few years, though. Looking to get into a few other leagues this year as well as I have a little more time on my hands. I'm a very active manager.

killxswitch
06-25-2012, 02:34 PM
Personally I think 12 is the perfect number. 14 can get rough and I've played brutal 16 team leagues that aren't even worth the punishment.

farfromforgotten
06-25-2012, 03:12 PM
12 is good. 14 is a little more challenging, but is my favorite set-up. You have one division and everyone plays every team one time, then the playoffs start week 14. Top 6 teams make the playoffs. I've played in two 16 team leagues and one 20 team league (ridiculous, but got invited and I played in a ton of leagues back in the day) and actually came in top 3 in those leagues.

I think Welker had some ridiculous game last year, I forget the circumstances. The defense may change completely because there's been talk of IDP.

FlyingElvis

He had a few big games and one huge game vs. Buffalo. 16 / 217 / 2 and a 19 yard carry, to boot. That's 34 in non-decimal, standard scoring, nevermind PPR.

10 is solid, I'd rather get 12 though.

No times or dates yet. We haven't even really decided if this will be dynasty or just keeper. I am kind of unsure about how dynasty leagues even work. Regular draft 1st year, then rookies-only draft the following years. What about players that are not drafted? Are those just acquired by normal free agency acquisition?

farfromforgotten
08-17-2012, 12:42 AM
I run a Dynasty league for a family and friends league. Regular draft 1st year. Free Agents signed through waivers during the year. We drop 3 players after the season ends, then we have a 3 round rookie/free agency draft (just put them all together in the same pool) before the next season starts. That's just how we do it, of course. There are many ways to set up a Dynasty league.

You do have to have a really dedicated group of owners to make it work, though. No tankers to get top rookie picks. If someone makes a bad trade it can really kill a team for anywhere from one year to several and then if that owner quits it can be hard to find a replacement owner for that team. I love the thought of Dynasty leagues, but the one I run is far from perfect. Most of the group has stayed together over the years, but I'd say that half of us (6) are really die-hard FF players and are always on top of things, the other half are just barely invested in the league it seems.

Keeper league just means after this season we all stay in the league together and pick X amount of players to keep on your roster for the next season and then we have another draft before that season. So lets say after this year I keep Jake Locker, Julio Jones and Doug Martin then next year they are automatically on my team and I still have to draft the rest of my team before the season starts.

I don't understand prerankings. Like I don't know if I would rather have a RB over a QB or when a TE is of greater value than a reciever. If I could rank them by position that would be great but all of the positional rankings together just confuses me.

RB CJ Spiller
RB Beanie Wells
RB Roy Helu
WR Mike Williams
WR Michael Crabtree

I tried something different with this draft by loading up on WRs and waiting for RBs... not sure how I feel about the results just yet. Should be a fun season. Good luck, everyone!

Yeah, the success of my team rides a ton on what ends up goin' on with Jones-Drew.

Disgusting set of receivers! I'll take them off your hands if you want a RB. I've got Jonathan Dwyer and Ronnie Brown up for grabs ;)

I pretty much kicked this draft's ass.

It is actually a pretty good review if you plug in the scoring.

SHIPWRECKS

QB: Cam Newton
QB: Ben Roethlisberger

RB: Adrian Peterson
RB: Ryan Matthews
RB: Jonathan Dwyer
RB: Ronnie Brown

WR: Dez Bryant
WR: Reggie Wayne
WR: Robert Meachem

TE: Jason Witten
TE: Martellus Bennett

K: Garrett Hartley

...

Depth is terrible across the board. Dwyer, Brown and Bennett will all be gone as soon as the starters get healthy.

I actually think Bennett might have a good year this year.

PPR League. RBs are least valuable. Keeper league. I have no regrets.

If MJD signs, my RBs aren't bad. If he doesn't... hurtin'

QB: Stafford, Schaub
RB: Bush, McGahee, Ryan Williams, David Wilson
WR: Nicks, Thomas, Washington, Jeffery, Bess
TE: Graham, Finley

Odds are against me.
