    2019?

    Seems like this league was in doubt pretty much right up until the NFL preseason last year. What's the prognosis this year? If we play, I'm definitely in. But I'm just wondering how much effort I should put in.

    Everyone should go to For Owners/Franchise Setup/Customize and choose yes to Display League Reminders. This will alert you on the leagues front page if someone sends you a trade. You'll get some other messages too that are annoying but at least if you have an interest in trading you will see incoming offers and the status of your outgoing offers without having to go looking for the Trade Module, which is hidden on League Tabs/Team Management. Out if sight out of mind I think.

    2019?

    FWIW theerosion was absent for most of the latter 2/3 of the season last year. I sent him several trade offers that were never responded to and I dont believe he set a lineup after week 4or 5. So I wouldn't wait too long for him.

    2019?

    I haven't used yahoo or espn in years. I think the main draw back for both platforms for dynasty purposes was that they didn't support draft pick trading and that leagues didn't carry over from year to year. So you have to manually load rosters every year. If they've addressed these issues then I suppose either would be fine. Or if the commissioner is willing to do the work to keep track of stuff manually. There are other options for free leagues. I play in a couple leagues on Fleaflicker. Its not the most aesthetically pleasing platform and has a few quirks. Also there is no app. I use their mobile site on my phone and it isn't awful IMO but I know this is a big sticking point for some. It does have a dark theme though which I like. There is also a newish platform called sleeperbot. I've read mixed reviews on it. I think most of the complaints are for issues arising in non typical leagues. In a vanilla league like this one I believe SB would probably be sufficient. I haven't actually used it myself though. So I could be completely wrong about that. They do have a functioning app though and a very responsive development team. I played on NFL.com years ago in some redraft leagues. I don't remember much about it. It might be worth looking into.

    As the 2018 draft starts...

    Don't worry. You get used to it after awhile. Worm I sent you a different offer. If you could accept or decline it soon that would be swell.I need to know what direction to go with my next pick. Edit: wrong owner

    Since that trade created a 5th open roster spot for me can I get my 5th round pick?

    2018 Season

    Thats why i asked....the site says he has to be listed as IR before he can be deactivated. Not sure why the Chargers wouldnt have put him on IR already, they get unlimited spots dont they? And its not like he is going to make some miraculous recovery.

    2018 Season

    Hey did we ever decide about putting players on IR before the draft? The vote in the poll on the 2017 site was 4-3 in favor of allowing it, with a couple of votes for zucchini. Is that enough to pass the rule? I'd like to put Hunter Henry on the DL if possible.

    2018 Season

    Im not going to lie to you, I had pretty much written this league off as dead. Apparently I was wrong. But im still around and it doesnt look like youve given my team away yet, so I guess it would be rude if the Official League Champion just disappeared and whatnot. Sorry of my absense caused anyone any problems. If you have given my team away then disregard this post.
  14. I won in the first round week 14 vs 6 seed tommyboy, but was left out of the semifinal round week 15, where I would have beaten pulp fiction http://www68.myfantasyleague.com/2017/weekly?L=16444&W=14 http://www68.myfantasyleague.com/2017/weekly?L=16444&W=15

    A few Items to vote on

    I vote for free, but I dont care about 12 vs 14 teams. Wont let me vote for just one question I guess if we can find two quality owners then keeping it the way it is would be preferable. Keeping it at 14 teams just to add two scrub owners would be not preferable.

    Championship match up not correct

    Ok I finally found that playoff bracket page. The one linked from the league tabs doesn't show anything. I didn't know the other playoff bracket page even existed. Anyway I'll stop whining now. Good luck VictorVictoria. I'm sure it will be an epic Super Bowl.

    The Future of the CCDL

    If we did contract to 12 teams, would expanding rosters be something anyone would be interested in? Contracting to 12 teams and increasing roster sizes might be the best of two worlds. I will allow those of us who dont want to redraft the entire league to keep our teams intact, but would give those owners who do want to redraft an opportunity to do kind of a "mini- start up draft". Like I said upthread I'm in 7 other Dynasty leagues and the league with the next smallest roster size is 30 players. 22 roster slots is just really tiny for Dynasty IMO. It allows almost no room for developmental guys, I did a quick count and IMO there are easily 30 guys on the two rosters that would be contracted that IMO should be rostered in a 12 team league. Add that to the incoming rookies and thats a huge talent influx. Some things that we might want to consider: 1) Mild: Contract to 12 teams and bump rosters up to 25. That would give each owner 3 extra roster spaces. For 1 year only, bump the rookie/FA draft up to 8 rounds (5 normal draft picks plus three to fill the extra roster spaces). Such a large talent pool must be drafted, not distributed via the WW afterwards. 2) Medium:: Everything in #1 AND eliminate kickers. I used to be steadfastly in favor of kickers, but after playing in a couple of leagues that dont use them, I am a zealous convert. Kickers add nothing but headaches and in those leagues i dont miss them a bit. This would give everyone 4 extra roster spaces (Rookie/FA draft would need to be 9 rounds). 3) Hot:Everything in #1 and #2 plus eliminating DST's: What i said about kickers in #2 i could say about DSTs as well. A couple of my other leagues dont use them, and its very freeing. This would give everyone 5 extra roster spaces. (Rookie/FA draft would need to be 10 rounds) 4) Ghost pepper infused insanity: Everything in #1 thru #3 plus we add in IDP's. Im playing in my first season in a league with IDP's and its pretty fun. Not for everyone, but im enjoying it. You'd have to open up rosters and the draft even more. Maybe a lot to do all at once, but damn it would be pretty awesomely chaotic.

    The Future of the CCDL

    Right now I am planning on being back next season. I would prefer not to redraft the entire league. Moving to a pay league is a deal breaker for me. One thing to consider: A strong league is filled with strong, committed, active owners. I think this league was born from and is mostly populated by posters from the Geek Club. It also seemed to me that last year you guys had trouble finding people to fill vacant teams. Otherwise you wouldnt probably have considered a guy like me with literally 0 posts. Maybe there arent any more viable willing owners in that Geek Club pool. Maybe its time to introduce some Dynasty-savvy outside blood. I'm in seven other Dynasty leagues, and I'm sure some of you guys must be in other leagues as well. Rather than just filling our two vacant teams with whichever two GC members get there first, maybe we should try to find some owners who have some Dynasty experience, even if it means searching outside of FFToday. Just a thought.
