First, we need to get at least 8 people. For the draft time, I'd be fine with any day, as long as it's on or after 7 central.

Looks like NFL.com doesn't offer auction drafts. Guess we should just split off into the other leagues, or turn this one into something else.

Yea, I'm just now noticing that too.. I mean I thought every Fantasy site that wanted to be taking serious did Auction drafting... I mean they even offer Keeper League.More likely we will just turn it into something else but i'm going to check with Andy to see if that NFL.com thing is totally binding for all the leagues.

I've never done an auction, but I'm willing to try. If we do have to change it, it'd be cool if we could keep the same base group. It's like an old timers group :)

Alright, Due to NFL.com being complete idiots and not allowing Auction leagues..We are now switching this league to a Snake/Standard League..I will now get out of Docta's way and let him commish haha

As for draft, as long as it is anytime after 8 PM EST, I'm good though I'm more flexible on weekends

With my work schedule being all kinds of nuts right now a weekend draft would be great. Otherwise I'll be autopicking

Docta

PM'ed everyone with the league info. Draft is set at Aug 27th, 8:30 EST for now.

Also, if we're only going to have 10 people, maybe we could turn it into a 2-QB league? And if Turk and Dave get in, we could just have a standardized league.

Amy

Anytime that's good for the rest of you is fine for me. I'm the queen of flexible schedules!

mkocs6, clem, IndyColtsFan, cml, and kncdad still have to sign up. Already sent a PM to everyone on how to get in.

Sorry I took a few days to join- I've been in the process of moving for the past month, so the amount of attention I've paid to this website has suffered. Looking forward to getting settled.

Should be a good time for me, too.

And sorry, going to sign up right now.

*Edit: Signed up and all set. Thanks for getting this all set up.

Docta
08-26-2011, 09:18 PM
IndyColtsFan and kncdad still haven't signed up, and the draft is tomorrow. Does anybody else want to join? But if we don't get 2 people by then, then we'll just draft with 8 teams. Has to be 2 since they only allow an even numbered amount of teams.

I'm already in the FP league III, but I'd be willing to join in if you can get another.

Bump - need one more for FP FF league II

Looks like no one else is interested in joining - I'd love to see my team in an 8 team league. And the stacked waiver wire.

Amy
08-27-2011, 01:50 AM
I we go with 8, that's fine with me. I hope the other two sign up in time, though.

I tried to sign up, but the link Docta sent me is no good.

Just follow this link: http://fantasy.nfl.com/registration/privateleaguejoin?leagueId=547448

It works fine for me.

I'm in, thanks. Still waiting for one more though. Docta said he'd get another...

Sounds like Docta's handling it. Never mind.

Docta
08-27-2011, 08:26 PM
There, we got 10. And he's a Ravens fan. We'll try to recruit him during the draft.

Amy
08-27-2011, 08:31 PM
I'm bouncing and ready to go! Good luck everyone, in the draft and season!

Should be fun! People going to be chatting on this site during the draft?

There'll be a chat on the draft page for that.

Based on teams drafted right now, my guess is trh5001 is the paper favorite to win the league..Good Fast draft everyone btw

who's trh5001? I mean which team is that?

It was a fun draft. I think it should be a competetive season.

10 days. :D

Hey Docta, I saw you changed the waiver period from one day to three days. Any reason?

Docta
08-29-2011, 10:30 PM
Hey Docta, I saw you changed the waiver period from one day to three days. Any reason?
That's how long it usually is. Just forgot to change it before the draft. I was actually thinking about 2 days though, since it would probably be more convenient int that we only have 10 teams. If anyone has a preference, tell me.

I was just wondering. I guess I prefer the shortest waiver period possible, but it's not anything I'd get too worked up about. I guess it's good to give people who aren't fanatically checking the moves like I am a chance to put in a claim. :) Good luck!

Nice pick up on Graham, by the way. I was debating during the game last night and didn't pull the trigger. Probably was a mistake.

Docta
08-29-2011, 11:03 PM
Changed it to 2. Everyone is the league is fairly active anyway.

And thanks. I didn't really need Little anyway, so he was expendable.

I gotta say im really looking forward to this season and im having a really hard time finding flaws in anyones team should be an excellent league.

Don't be fooled by Graham. He looked good against the 49ers.

Last year Brandon LaFell and and David Gettis looked like Hall of Famers against the 49ers.

Docta

Peyton might be my starting QB, but I still have the best RB tandem in the league with Charles/McFadden. Flacco will be a fine replacement if Peyton can't go.

I'm waiting for the Tuesday after week 1 when all the fantasy euphoria I had over my team disappears in one painstaking week and I'm scouring waiver like crazy to fix it.

There's at least even odds I'll be doing this as well.

Yeah, so far, I'm pretty satisfied. :)

Yes, I just dropped Flacco for Grossman, and yes, Grossman is now my starter.

DAMN YOU PEYTON MANNING'S NECK!!

Amy

Hey, Doc, if you wanna make an offer for Kolb, he's available. Well, really, that goes for everyone. I'm happy with Cam backing up Brady.

Docta
09-25-2011, 10:24 PM
Losing by 40 to red, so that means Grossman has to score over 40 on Monday night. Fingers crossed!:rolleyes:

Everyone in the Halas division is 2-2. Looks like it'll be going down to the wire.

Picked up a new kicker and defense for bye weeks ... and apparently forgot to start both of them.

D'oh.
