I would prefer people only play if they truly want to play. Its not a big deal that you don't know much about American football. I'm sure some of us could explain it to you so that you know how to play fantasy football, but if you don't really want to play, taking up a spot would sort of hurt the league.

The league is done. I will start sending out invites, but two things are needed: You will need to create an account at ESPN.com. When you have done that, please send me, through u2u, the email address you used to sign up at ESPN so that I can send you an invitation.

Again, please do not sign up unless you are completely committed to playing.

If any of this is incorrect, please let me know.

As I said before, the league is done. Please register a username at ESPN.com, or if you already have an ESPN.com username, and send me a u2u containing the email address you signed up at ESPN with. I will then send you an invitation to the league.

There are currently 12 team spots, with 9 of them available. If we need to add or remove teams, that can be done.

Does anyone have any suggestions on where we should hold the draft? Should it be on BTS? Should it be at the home page for our league? Through email? Through chat? Chat would probably be the quickest, but there's no guarantee everyone will be able to get on at the same time. And I'm not sure if we could get away with creating a separate thread on BTS dedicated to the draft.


EDIT: to add draft questions and update invited/joined

Do you have at least a basic understanding of fantasy football, such as how it works, how you play etc.?

If not, let us know and we'll teach you the basics.

Fortunately for you, you don't have to know too much about the NFL and its players to play. ESPN, if I'm not mistaken, provides stat projections. So all you have to do is put the players with the best stat projections on your starting roster.

But it would help you alot if you had a basic understanding of the NFL and knew at least the top players at most, if not all the positions.

It shouldn't be too difficult though. With the stat projections as well as the draft rankings, all you really need to do is put in or draft the best players available and you should be fine.

Well if fantasy football is anything like my other experience with other fantasy sports then you select a team and your score depends on how your chosen players perform and the scoring system . The draft will be new to me but it is an idea that I like .
I have heard of Brett Farve and Tom Brady before . Other then Quarter Back I cant say that I am familiar with any of the other positions. This could prove to be quiet interesting .

Yeah, thats basically how all fantasy sports go.

The draft is simple. We'll order the teams in the league 1-12 (or however many teams there will be), and when a team's turn comes up, they will pick a player from the entire NFL player list. Typically you want to go with the best available at the positions you need, which is every position at the start of the draft.

We'll keep doing that until all of the positions on every team is filled.

You'll have player rankings available to you, so no worries about not knowing many players.

The thing about fantasy sports is you don't really have to know the players or the sport that well to participate. With stat projections and player rankings, it makes it easy.

There are some things that give someone who knows, for example, the NFL and its players an advantage over someone not familiar with the NFL, such as maybe if Team A is playing Team B, and although Team A has a better record and better team, they can't seem to always beat Team B. So of course someone following the NFL more closely would know that and would avoid starting players from Team A given the chance they might not have a great game.

And there's other variables like weather, maybe a certain player does or does not play well in a certain kind of weather that they will be playing in that week. Obviously knowing the players and the NFL would help with that.

Other than that, its a pretty level playing field.

for fantasy newcomers:
here's sample yahoo head-to-head projected scoring. it's basically a stats battle.
whoever gets the highest points based on stats (toucdown passes, passing yards, rushing TD, etc, etc) wins. every week you have different opponent. then theres playoffs. (mr NOM commish, correct me if i'm wrong)

if you have any questions just post it here.

Yeah thats right.

There's a league scoring system where you get a certain amount of points for touchdowns (6 points), passing yards (1 point for every 25 yards) etc., and some negative points for interceptions thrown (-2 points), fumbles lost (-2 points) etc. There's more categories for points. I'm sure you can look at them all in the league settings.

That point system is matched with each of your players' stats for that particular week in the NFL. The points are added up and compared to the team you are playing. The one with the most points gets a win. The other team, obviously, gets a loss. The next Sunday, you play another team in the league and do it all over again.

There will be 14 weeks in the regular season of our league, meaning you will play 14 games. Week 15, 16 and 17 of the NFL season will be our playoffs. Right now, the top 8 teams with the best records will make it to the playoffs. This may change though.

For those that don't know, Week 17 is the last week of the NFL regular season. Fantasy Football playoffs end when the regular season of the NFL ends because not everyone's players will make it to the NFL playoffs, meaning they wouldn't be playing any games, which means no points. That wouldn't really be fun.
