Is the scoring for ESPN customizable? Do they allow for the addition of a few points if a player hits a certain benchmark each game (like a bonus 2 points if your QB throws for 300)?

I am pretty sure that you dont have the ability to do that on ESPN. I just looked at some comishioner tools, and I do not see anything that gives you the option of doing that.

Not sure, but I know they had a "Show" buttom toward the bottom to show some categories most people dont use such as completions are what not I had to use to get them into my "test" league.

Hope that helps. ;-D

Once someone finishes a draft on ESPN (especially a LIVE draft), let us know how all the interface is. Add/drop players, trading, draft stuff, customization, etc.



I don't do more than 4 leagues so I don't need to "save" my yahoo spots. I really have no plan to switch from yahoo, I'd like to know how ESPN compares.

I've been playing on ESPN since it started up and have used League Manager in the past for a league I play in. I have not seen Yahoo this year and I hear they have made some changes but in the past ESPN's interface has always been much better then Yahoo's.

I set up a league last nite and they gave you the ability to give a bonus, but it was not for game totals. It was for long plays passing, recieving or rushing.
You could think of government workers like teenagers. You pay them an allowance, but do you get any work out them? They eat the food, put their feet on the furniture and complain loudly whenever they are unhappy.

I don't really like the ESPN set up. Searching for players is almost impossible unless you type in the player's name. Am I missing something for the players section?
