Fantasy Football Time Again!

Alright, I promised last year that I would make this time more enjoyable and competitive... so here we go, Pointy Guitar Football League '06/07.

Biggest change, I ditched the points system and are doing head to head.

For those who don't know, last year the league ranked you on how many points your team scored cumulatively, not bad, but not a ton of fun. With head to head, you have the same team/scoring structure, but each week your team plays another team. The team with more points, obviously, gets a win. League ranking is done by your win/loss record (tiebreaker is points). Teams with the best record go to the playoffs, playoffs are standard elmination style. I'll have 4 or 6 teams making the playoffs, depending on how many people sign up. I think the head-to-head system makes things more competitive and hopefully more fun/interesting.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Also, I adjusted the scoring a bit. Last year it seemed like the point totals were kind of low, and you had stuff like kickers outscoring GOOD running backs, etc. That should all be gone. Yards/Touchdowns are now worth more than last year.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

We'll have an autopick draft again this year. Same deal as before, you pre-rank your players and Yahoo selects the best available from your list when your turn comes up.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Another difference from last year, although somewhat small, is the roster configuration. Last year your team had 1 QB, 2 RBs, 3 WRs, 1 TE, 1 K, 1 DEF/SP Teams and 6 bench players.

This year there will only be 2 WRs and 1 "flex" player which can be a running back OR wide receiver. You'll also have only 5 bench players, which forces you to be a *little* more on your toes with bye weeks and injuries.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Beyond that, if you want to join you can do 1 of 3 things.

1. Respond to this thread with your email address
2. Send me a PM with your Email address
3. Email me: jayrat -at- gmail.com (take out spaces, change "-at-" to "@"... duh)

If you PM me, or ESPECIALLY if you email me, PLEASE put "FANTASY FOOTBALL" somewhere in the subject line so I don't ignore your message.

Oh yeah, league is free as always. No prizes, but nothing to lose either. Maybe we can try and come up with some sort of cheesy gift for the winner though.

Someone made a crack on Last Comic Standing last night about how Fantasy Football is DnD for Jocks.

Glen and everyone else...

The pre-ranking can be done as early as today. I'm going to finalize everything and begin the auto-draft at 6AM (central time) on Tuesday September 5th. So you'll have enough time to evaluate your players and a full 4 days after the draft to set your week 1 roster.

I made a note in the league home page about this so you can refer back to it if need be.
