Brand new Free Dynasty League

Recommended Posts

You guys know me, I've been around here forever, mostly in the Geek Club. I've got my juices flowing to start up a new dynasty league this year. It'll be free.

 

It'll fill first come first serve. Post in this thread. 12 or 14 teams depending on how fast it fills.

 

I'll update scoring and rosters later today by editing this sentence out and replacing it with actual info. Leaning towards 1/2/3/1/1/1 but if we go 14, that 2nd RB could flex into a 4th WR. Scoring will be regular vanilla scoring. Please indicate weather you prefer PPR or not.

 

Now, there is a theme, it's: Cult Movie Classics. All team names are expected to follow the theme.

 

I'm setting up a yahoo site now (since it's free and carries over year to year we'll use a free site to host). Kicking the tires, I'm not familiar with slowboat drafting there. Gimme a half a day to get the scoring details down. We may draft at yahoo or we may do it at myfantasyleague.com but then I'll transfer and upload it over at yahoo.

 

I'll figure it all out. Trust me, I've been doing this a long while.

I would love to join if you have any spots left. Let me know. Thanks.

Lots of spots. As you can see, you're #2.

 

I'll give folks in here a week to fill as many spots as we can. There's a lot of newer folks that check this forum. But older ones may pass it by. I'll start inviting friends from the board to fill it up. I know tons of people because I post here year-round.

These rosters are going to be larger than you are use to so be prepared to do some homework. I intend a dynasty league that allows you to stash rookie sleepers and handcuff your RBs, not one with a short bench that has lots of talent on the FA wire.

 

The scoring will be pretty much vanilla plain ordinary but indicate if you prefer PPR or non-PPR and we'll roll with what the majority wants.

Nice to see you Mike (shotsup).

 

gordonfreeman has offered to help us use the MFL site for our league this year. So we have that going for us, we won;t be using yahoo. Also I have had another participant (calliso5) PM me, he should be in this thread soon. So that makes four of us.

 

When I know for sure that we'll have the league (say 8+ participants), I'll ask Mike to give us our own forum.

I'm interested. I've never done a dynasty league, but the thought has intrigued me. I'll take a spot, please sir.

That's five. We'll go for sure if we get to eight but I'd like to wait for twelve or fourteen.

When do you plan to draft? That could determine if I could participate or not.

 

I'm in one dynasty now and am starting an auction Dynasty this year on Yahoo (still could use 4 players there) drafting 8-27

To begin with, I intend to slowboat it with an 8 hour clock and we'll start a day after the draft fills. Now, I know the regular season starts September 8 and today is August 20. so we will have to finish up with live draft the Saturday before. Live drafts take a big block of time, so the more we knock out, the less time that will spend on that Saturday. If we're making good time.

 

Ideally, we'll really kick ass such that we may ditch that Saturday entirely. But don't count on it.

 

The reason I want to slowboat is that I think a lot of folks aren't as up to speed on all the camp battles and such and a slowboat (at least for the first half of the draft) is less scary since it gives them time to do research on the fly. Then when we accelerate it to live draft (if necessary) by then people will have had a couple weeks to figure it out.

 

Time is short so don't expect a big turn around time. It'll start a day or two after we get participant #14 or if we stall out around 12.

 

Looks like we're up to nine with two "maybes" including you (tim new) and nikki2200.

OK. I'll do it. If there are other people who really want to and it's full I'll give up my spot. I usually only play for money. ;)

irony.com is gone :o

 

To determine draft order, I'll roll random dice at this location: http://www.pbegames.com/

 

I've never done it there before but it can be signed and verified on site which is nice.

 

14 rolls, the highest number will draft first, the lowest will draft last. In case of a tie, I'll re-roll just the tied people.

 

We'll do this when the 14th spot it taken.

 

1st roll- me

2nd- gordon

3rd- shotsup

4th- calliso

5th blade

6th redtodd

7th- TBBOM

8th- kilroy

10th- Big Blue

11th- VoR

12th- Nikki

Rosters will be 22 deep.

 

Starters will be 1QB/1RB/3WR/1TE/1PK/1D plus one flex RB/WR.

 

I don't want a firm 1/2/3/1/1/1 because rosters are a bit thin at 14 teams so that 2nd RB can be a WR.

 

Scoring will be the same as this league:

 

http://football3.myfantasyleague.com/2011/options?L=11489

 

You'll notice no PPR but we can add it if enough of you guys like. So far we have one person that indicates they want PPR and nobody opposed.

Time to ask Mike for a new forum.

 

Remember, the theme is Cult Classic Movies so your team name should reflect that theme.

The other league that was started recently needed an alternate, so maybe you will get in. :banana:

It's good to go without me; I asked about time because I live in Hong Kong so the time of the draft is maybe more Important since I'm half a world away - 12 hours ahead of US ET as illustrated by how long it took me to reply :).

Time is a bit short so the draft can start immediately and I'll set up the site now. I expect you to feel some urgency considering week one is near. Still, we won't turn on the timer until round two and since I provided no notice of us starting so soon, I don't intend to get fed up for at least 48 hours.

 

Make sure I see you around. This first round is critical to save your spot. I'd love to have Bill E. participate. But he's the 15th man in a 14 team league. I've got a really itchy trigger finger to include Bill, so don't let it come at your expense.
