Fantasy football league starting up again

Post by JMP on Sun Aug 13, 2017 10:47 am

It's that time of year!  The Getting Defensive fantasy football league is starting up again.  It looks like I had the settings set to auto-renew, so all of you who played last season are currently listed in this league.

Please let me know ASAP if you plan to play again or not.  I will remove you if I don't hear from you by August 20.  I did send an email, or you can reply in this thread.

Note: I have changed the return yardage points for defensive players. Defensive players will now get 1 point for every 10 yards they return an INT or fumble.  Hopefully this leads to more reasonable scoring.

If anyone else wants to join, let me know here!  Just like previous years, we'll be drafting defensive players as well as offense.   Let me know if you have questions.

Thanks!

Including me, we now have 4 confirmed from last year. Off to a good start!

I'll post a draft date soon. I like to do it close to the start of the season, and just have to figure out what date works best.

Reminder for people from last year who have not replied yet: Please let me know ASAP if you plan to play again or not. I will remove you if I don't hear from you by August 20. I did send an email, or you can reply in this thread.

UPDATE: I deleted 2 teams - people that I haven't heard from. That brings us to 8 teams. I'd like to go with 10.

If anyone wants to join the league, here is the link:
https://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/f1/147895/invitation?key=9b8069e8a07c7914&ikey=e15acc854ab74166

I'll figure out the draft date soon...

It's looking like the live draft will be Friday September 1 at 8:00pm Eastern. Will make it official some time this week.

Again, there are 2 slots available if anyone else wants to join. We draft defensive players too, so it's different than a lot of other fantasy leagues.

Perfect, Degarmo!

So, yeah, the live draft is officially set for Friday Sept. 1 at 8pm eastern. Remember to rank players if you are going to auto-draft.

We still have two openings. We can either go with an 8-team league, or I can open the league up to the public and get to 10. Would you guys prefer an 8-team league or a 10-team league???

Your team name is Chris's Team, right? You are definitely in the league. If you login to your Yahoo account and click on Fantasy Sports, you should be able to click on the Getting Defensive League.

LOL I know what you mean. The defensive players are basically a crapshoot because results vary week to week much more than offensive players. I ended up with just one defensive bench player...I'll be making a lot of moves on that side for sure!

One thing that becomes more obvious every year I do fantasy: there's really not a lot of good running backs in the NFL.

Running backs are a hard commodity because of the running back by committee approach. Was much easier when teams used one dominant back

Zeke Elliott will probably play the whole season. Now I don't feel so bad for taking him in round one. Twisted Evil

Blockbuster trade: I traded DeVante Parker to rightchea for TY Hilton. I figured I'd go with the proven player that would get more targets and has no injury history. Of course, Hilton may not do anything till Luck comes back - but I'm in it for the long haul!
