Blackhawks - Fantasy Football

New thread so we don't take over the Bears talk.

Sometimes, I feel like I'm the only person not involved in fantasy sports (and has no interest in it, too).

I'll post this in here:

I set up an ESPN league, PM me your email address for an invite. Once we get 10 we can set up the payment stuff. Also, I cant set a draft time until we fill the league but how about we do it Sunday night around 6?

So far I've sent out 5 invites. Hawksfan74 is the only person who has joined thus far. We need 4 more players and I can set the draft time and we can figure out other rules.

Do we want to do 2 divisions, 5 teams per division, both league winners make playoffs, 2 wild cards? Would draw the divisions at random. Or we could just do 1 division, 10 teams, top 4 make it.

Top 4 of 10 otherwise you get a team that goes 10-4 or something and misses while another goes .500 and makes it, seen it happen too many times, very unfair.

Ok have 1 division, top 4 teams get in. Playoffs start week 13 and are 2 weeks each so

Round 1 - weeks 13, 14
Round 2 - week 15, 16
week 17 - league is over so people dont get screwed by players not playing

I like having plenty of good players available since so many guys get hurt during the season so I have the rosters set as

QB
RB
WR/RB
WR
WR
TE
D/ST
K

7 bench spots.

I just hate when you get a couple of injuries and you have to pick up the St. Louis Rams 4th string WR or the Bengals 3rd RB because there are no players available on the waiver wire. With so many teams doing a running back by committee, I hate having to have 2 RB's on every team....there just aren't 20 feature backs in the NFL and when injuries hit things get very slim at that position.

If people strongly object please say so.

QB
RB
RB
WR
WR
RB/WR
TE

$25 for 16 weeks (12 for those that don't make the playoffs) of entertainment? Thats around $2 a week.
