Hey, I was going to advertise this very same league league here - but you beat me to it! Looks like I'm not the only one in our league who knows about this site.

:doublethumbsup:

And for anyone that's interested, the draft is at 2 PM EST. And I can second that this is a fun, no worries league. Come on, you can handle one more!

You have 10 starting spots have you and rosters that go 20 deep? That's cool, I've been looking for a big league like that. The return yardage counts equal to rushing or recieving yardage, that's something I'm not use to at all -is that a typo?

OK, I'm in as Kamikazi Rodeo Clowns.

I've never drafted at Yahoo before, we always draft someplace else when we use that site. You gotta tell me where/how the draft will go down.

Glad to have ya aboard man!
Return yds do count the same. A bit of a different wrinkle and provides some pretty interesting alternative's for deeper players, especially if it fills up with the 14 teams.
I like to have a deep bench, it makes the draft all that more important and usually promotes quite a bit of trading.

Little over an hr to draft time! Good luck to all that joined!

I'm the Man-Eating Pandas. As Blaneyfan said, the return yardage makes a big difference in this league. I picked up Wes Welker from waivers last year - a very average WR but his return yards made him a top 10 player in the league. If you can find a WR/RB that gets touches AND returns kicks - :doublethumbsup:

I like the big roster about this league too. It's nice to have room on the bench to stash the sleepers I find on this site.

I missed the draft last year because of last minute technical difficulty and thought the auto-draft got me a very average team. The Yahoo autodraft is actually pretty good when compared to others. But what made my season was the Welker pickup and the (autodraft) 13th or so round pick of MJD.

So this year I couldn't make the draft either so I actually did the pre-rankings and it worked out ok. The guys I wanted in the mid rounds (Welker, Hester, Jacoby Jones) for their return yards I bumped up a bit and I ended up with all three. Not as deep at RB as I should be but that's the autodraft for you.

Looks like we should have a good league!
