There are some slots available for a "best ball" league comprised primarily of FFToday members if anybody is interested.
It is similar to a league many of us participated in last year but much earlier in the season. Who thinks they are ahead of the curve right now?
We will hope to start drafting late this week or early next via slow email with a generous clock timer and look for 14 to 16 owners.
This is essentially a mock with consequences, once the draft is over, there are no further team management moves necessary. Just check in weekly to see who ends up the king at the end of the year.
$25 from each owner will go into a prize pool via leaguesafe to be split 70/30 for 1st and 2nd place finishers at the end of the year, this is a total points league. The entire proceeds from the entry fees will be distributed to the winners, there is no charge for the MFL site.
Lineup and scoring questions are answered on the message board at the site. If you are really interested anything you want to know is available there. If you want to participate post or message your contact info to me.
Again we are looking to get started within a week or so, but won't do so until all owners are paid, if you don't have the money right now I'm sure there will be other opportunities eventually, these leagues can be quite addictive and without the weekly management required they are easier to commit to entering a larger number.
Please log any Gordon trades you see take place. Its really hard to get a handle on his value. I personally have 1 short roster league where I have the best team and would love to sell him just for the roster slot. I also have a league where I am not competitive and would buy him for the right price but feel the risk level is pretty high. Just looking for hard data, please include link to league if possible.
I saw Justin Blackmon listed as a "buy" by at least 1 person in another thread which along with a Rotoworld blurb a few days ago got me to thinking.
How long do people think his current suspension from the NFL will last?
I am sometimes a "buyer" of select risk such as AP the year after he was hurt a couple of years ago, Gronk coming back from his injuries last year etc.
I'm not sure how to quantify or calculate the risk with Blackmon in 2014 redraft but at this point I'm more curious about what the general community thinks the legnth of his suspension will be if you had to guess.
Please play along and give me a guesstimation, no research necessary or even desired.
To be clear the idea here I'm not looking for anyone's legal opinion just trying to get an idea of what the "market" perception is of the FF community
