Paul Vebber -> RE: Fantasy Football? (8/23/2008 11:57:41 PM)

Good response on the leagues, but I'd like to see at least 2 more teams in each league!

Beat the bushes guys! Ae there that few people that want a chance at a free game????




Challerain -> RE: Fantasy Football? (8/24/2008 4:54:48 PM)

I am in the autodraft league right now. I usually do the pro league but I may not be abe to do the live draft this year so I was leaving it open for someone who can. If you need another body I can join and just set a list.




Arctic Blast -> RE: Fantasy Football? (8/24/2008 11:01:27 PM)

Actually, if it's just a case of not being able to make the draft, so long as you trust your player rankings (if you do a custom pre-draft rankings list in the autodraft league, you can export to to other Yahoo leagues, too), you could still join, and it will autodraft for you in your draft slot. Kind of a crapshoot, since you never really know how good a job it's going to do, though.

BigSmooth -> RE: Fantasy Football? (8/28/2008 7:19:42 PM)

I'm in the Pro League with the Hometown Fanboys. Watch out.[sm=character0272.gif]




Arctic Blast -> RE: Fantasy Football? (8/28/2008 9:48:49 PM)

I'm rarin' to go!

One question...I was changing my pre-draft rankings, and figured I'd look at the categories for defensive players. There was sort of a small group of the occasional big name with a few "Who the Hell is that?" types. Are the names in there at that time (this was earlier in the week) the names that will be there Sunday, or will every DL, DB and LB be an option come draft time?

Here's the info from Paul, you want to go to http://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/f1/splash?type=home and click on "Join a League" (the blue button) under the Football '08 section on the right. Then type in the ID and the password per the info below. I'd love to have a few more in the "Pro" league, but I think all of them still have room.

They should all be in there. Go to the Players section and you can sort/filter by position and by any of the stats/rankings including "Fan Pts" which is the calculated points per the league system of each player. You can also specify what period you want to look at (i.e. 2007 performance, projected 2008 performance, etc.)




Erik Rutins -> RE: Fantasy Football? (8/29/2008 8:08:17 PM)

Room for just one more team in the Pro League now - who will step up?

Aaaah, there they are! Nice. Thanks, Erik.




Paul Vebber -> RE: Fantasy Football? (8/30/2008 1:19:36 AM)

We need one more in the classic to fill it out to a full 16. Still looking for 1 more in the Pro league!THis is a record turnout this year!




Paul Vebber -> RE: Fantasy Football? (8/30/2008 4:45:52 PM)

Draft in the Hall of fame league is done - only 3 of us were there! TOmorrow is the Pro league, lets get more folks to show up!




Paul Vebber -> RE: Fantasy Football? (8/30/2008 4:47:59 PM)

If we don't get one more player I will add "chump the Chimp" to get an even number.

(Chump the Chimp always goes bye the Yahoo predictions to set his roster.

Hey! You can't have a team that copies my strategy for picking! [:-][:D]

Do they really have to? I love competing with other teams drafting DeAngelo Williams in Round 3 and kickers in the 6th. [:D]

Well, scheduling the draft early on a saturday morning ensures few people will show up. Some people work on saturdays,...those that dont are sleeping.




USSAmerica -> RE: Fantasy Football? (9/1/2008 3:02:14 AM)

Paul, we now have 16 teams in the classic league.  Set the draft to run!  [8D]




Paul Vebber -> RE: Fantasy Football? (9/1/2008 4:25:01 AM)

I will set it to run Monday night so set your pick lists!





Mad Cow -> RE: Fantasy Football? (9/1/2008 4:34:59 AM)

I'm ready to defend my Hall of Fame title. :)




Paul Vebber -> RE: Fantasy Football? (9/2/2008 8:03:56 PM)

you got a pretty kickass team for not even being at the draft [X(]




Kung Karl -> RE: Fantasy Football? (9/2/2008 9:49:52 PM)

Just saw this thread. Is there any leuage I can join at this stage?

yea, i was quite surprised it turned out so well. had to make a couple free agent moves to get rid of the extra icker, extra defense and some other dead weight. but it's looking pretty solid on paper.

Sorry, all three leagues have drafted. Season starts Tomorrow night. I waited as long as I could...

We do it every year, Baseball and Football. Though next year I'm debating adding a NASCAR league to fill the gap between football and baseball.




thegreatwent -> RE: Fantasy Football? (9/8/2008 9:33:57 AM)

ouch, with Brady down this year could be interesting!




Paul Vebber -> RE: Fantasy Football? (9/9/2008 6:45:07 PM)

He of course was my 1st pick in two of three drafts... Rodgers was my primary back up, in one and Kurt Warner in another...

Off to a weak 1-2 start...




Mad Cow -> RE: Fantasy Football? (9/15/2008 9:33:23 AM)

Kickin ass this week,.

Should end the week as the top scoring team, and will certainly be out of the cellar and back in the mix of things.




Arctic Blast -> RE: Fantasy Football? (9/15/2008 7:41:48 PM)

Speaking of top scoring team...I'd like to thank my receivers this week, since without them, I was hooped in the Pro Football league. [:D]




Prince of Eckmühl -> RE: Fantasy Football? (9/22/2008 10:54:15 PM)

This has been pretty interesting so far, in that I'm new to the whole deal and didn't realize how much could go wrong.

Draft day kinda sucked because my wife and I came back from brunch late, and I missed the first two rounds. Week 1 fell apart on me when the Cowboys didn't follow their depth chart, and rearranged one of my starters out of the lineup. Then Hurricane Ike put two of my best defenders out of Week 2! Thank goodness for this weekends turaround, so I can stop my whining. [:D]

Anyway, it's really all a lot of fun. I named my team "Fudgehammers" after a former Forty-Niner's linebacker, Frank Nunley. I've staffed it with every criminal that I can lay my hands on, felons of every sort. Sure, there are a few "goody-two-shoes" types on the squad, but I'll be disappointed if they don't get at least a DWI before the season's over, members of my new family, as it were.

DEFENSE RULES: GO FUDGEHAMMERS!
