Fantasy Football

SynkarinSynkarin Nothing to see hereMember Posts: 3,216 Transcendent
We have a little over a month before the NFL season starts. I also happen to love Fantasy Football, and would love to play in a league with any of you that also love it. I tried starting something up last year, but it was a little too late, so hopefully this will give us enough time.

If you're interested, respond in this thread and we'll get something going. I like to use ESPN personally, but if there are strong opinions to use a different provider, that works.

@Silvanus @Kaimanahi - I forget who else was interested last year! We'll need around 8-10 people, but can roll with 6 or 12.


(Of course, there's going to be some kind of wager, like 20 credits per person, with the top 3 people winning something).

    I'm in! I'll default to my standard of letting the computer pick my starting team, but I'll be active during the season itself.

    I'll play

    Now I feel bad about a comment I made to friends the other day (not really) when they were making fun of pokemon go.

    "So you think a video game that has people going outside and getting excercise is silly because it is 'pokemon'? Sit down, grab a beer and tell me again about your fantasy football league."
  • CyndarinAscendsCyndarinAscends Member Posts: 1,461 Transcendent
    Still a valid comment.

    Why feel bad about it? I happen to enjoy both.

    We need 3 more people! I know there's more football lovers out there.

    Is there something on the website that can generate a team for me and is someone willing to tell me how well I'm doing/not doing? If so, then I have 20 credits.
  • SynkarinSynkarin Nothing to see here Member Posts: 3,216 Transcendent
    Yes - you can autodraft (which is what Krackenor would be doing). 

    You'll have to make sure your players are not on bye or injured etc. each week. 

    You can always ask questions

    I'm okay with questions. 

    So my first one is what's "football?"

    Football is where you give me 20 credits

    Anyway, if Celina is in, we only need 2 more. There's got to be two more people willing to play.

    So long as it's not overly involved I will do it
  • KaimanahiKaimanahi The One True Queen Member Posts: 704 Transcendent
    The minimum commitment is once or twice a week - making sure your lineup is active on Sunday, and then dropping/picking up players off of waivers. It's not very involved, though if you want to win you'll need to pay some attention to things happening around the league (performance, injuries, bye weeks).

    There's got to be -one- more person that enjoys football!

    Really you only have to check it twice a week, I do it three times.

    Tuesday - set waiver claims, look at injuries.

    Friday - The day team's announce final injury report for the week, you don't need to look at this day really but I always do.

    Sunday morning - set your lineup. Some teams will have late scratches, so I always check my team right before the games start.

    It isn't something that is time consuming at all, but you do you have to check it.

    I have no idea what any of that means.

    The actual draft can take an hour, but you could just have the computer autodraft for you if you really wanted.

    Silvanus said:

    Every week your pokemon go into battle on Sunday and Monday, you have hundreds of pokemon to choose from but you can only choose 6.

    Once they are active and started battling, they can't be replaced until the week is over. During the battles, sometimes they can acquire injuries, like paralysis, burns, confusion.

    On Tuesday, the next week has begun and you have the chance to replace any Pokemon you want out of the ones in the field, perhaps that pokemon sucked or perhaps it's injured. You decide what pokemon you want to add/replace in your lineup of 6 and add them to a list. On Wednesday morning at some point, there'll be a rotation of the choices of pokemon through all the players in the game and you may or may not get the pokemon you want. That was known as your Waiver claim, your first chance to pick up wild Pokemon.

    Now, any time between Wednesday and Sunday morning, you can add and replace pokemon from the wild without having to adhere to a rotating waiver wire claim. On Friday morning, you will find out if your Pokemon healed from certain injuries and are able to battle on Sunday, and can add/replace pokemon if yours didn't heal in time.

    Occasionally, Sunday morning, your Pokemon may not have actually recovered from their injuries or didn't have enough painkillers to go through this week's battle, and you will need to replace them before they get locked into Battle.

    Passing by to say this is a thing of absolute beauty.

    @Sylandra - I'm really just kidding (unless you're really down to play). We are looking for one more person though.

    Awesome, We have 8 then, I'll get a league set up on ESPN and send a message to grab emails for invites and we'll figure out a draft day.

    Easy credits.
    To me you're forever the kick runner from 3 years ago, the guy who does domoths when no one is online and whines that he's got no competition, and the guy that use to only turn up to fights when the numbers favoured him.
