Scoring and Settings (Same as Every Year):

Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Football - Scoring & Settings

Most notable changes from standard Yahoo Scoring:

-Just like in real life, TDs count for 6 points no matter who scores them.

-Just like in real life, yardage gained is equally valuable no matter who gains it - QB, RB, WR, etc.

Through sheer dumb luck to boot.

I wish I could state I'm a mastermind, but I'm like a monkey doing calculus when it comes to this stuff.

DO IT NOW.

Also, forgot to mention this, will update OP, as per the last 2 years PLEASE USE YOUR FORUM NAME AS YOUR TEAM NAME OR PART OF YOUR TEAM NAME.

example: "Will" or "Will's Warriors" or "Will's Mustache Riders"

I can't remember who [email protected] is. No one else will know who you are if they don't see your forum name in the standings.

Ok Good to go. Now just need to remember how to change the damn picture for my team logo

I might try, but it'd be a learning experience.

Can someone give me the cliffs on how it's played? And what happens if you miss the draft?

If you miss the draft, the computer auto-drafts for you based on Yahoo's rankings of players by projected points. Entropy (IIRC) can tell you it doesn't do a bad job.

You draft a starting line-up plus 10 bench players, each week you can sub guys out for bench players if you think a match-up is better or if a player has a bye week.

We play 1 QB, 1 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, and 1 Flex (your choice of WR/RB/TE) as the starting offense. You also start a kicker, and a team defense.

Head-to-head match-ups each week, most points scored wins. Scoring system is here:

Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Football - Scoring & Settings


Since tomorrow isn't great for some of you, we will plan on moving the draft up to this Friday at 9pm EST unless someone has a conflict.

If NeedSpeed and JoeBuck sign up, we have enough players. But I'll leave the league roster open through tomorrow evening at 8pm, so if anyone else wants to join give me your e-mail for an invite.

What's your e-mail NeedSpeed???

Since we're not playing for cash, we need something to play for. My coronation threads for the winner just aren't enough. I'm thinking a custom user title like "2013 Fantasy Football Champion" (or "Champ" at the end if the string is too long)

I'm going to ask an admin about it.
