It’s starting to be that time of the year again and, given the success of the QT3 fantasy football league last year, I thought we’d run another one. Here’s the deal, which should look awfully familiar to returning players:
Standard 12 team league. I’ll consider adding more players depending on interest.
Head-to-head play, complete with a two round playoff.
Slight variations on the standard league rules. For example, I like including return yardage. Yahoo allows me to use last year’s settings. I intend to do so but everything is up for debate.
The number of players we field would depend on the number of teams we get. The idea is to encourage trading. The waiver wire should be considered a scarce resource. We’ll include at least one defensive player in addition to a defensive team.
The draft will be scheduled right before the season opens (approximately Mon Sept. 4th). I’m leaning towards a live draft, if possible, which went surprisingly well last year. However, if geography and schedules don’t allow, we can try an offline draft.
Yahoo’s free setup. Each individual can opt to add the $10 StatTracker package if they like. I’d suggest it. It’s really nice.
While I’m certainly up for playing for bragging rights alone, it’d be nice to have a winner’s pot. How about this? Everyone must send the winner one old/bargain bin PC game of their own choosing. Invade your dusty closets!
You can see the initial league here. I’ll put out the password once we settle on a number of teams.
Ah, missed the points only part. Carry on then! ;-)
I played in the head to head last year and had fun. This year though I’m already in one league, may be helping a friend with another, and have like zero free time thanks to work and family. Much as I LOVE fantasy football, I need to take a sanity pass this season. Thanks for putting the league together though, and good luck!
Essentially, QBs and RBs get a little more love for their yardage, is the big difference, but QBs now only get 4pts for a TD, RBs still get 6pts.
QBs are now 25yds/pt, and Receivers and Running Backs are 10yds/pt. Receivers also get 6pts for TDs.
