I recently started a custom Yahoo fantasy football league and was interested in finding some new players to join up and play with.
The draft date is set for Monday August 20 @ 10:00 pm CT time. This time is definitely not set in stone and I am willing to change it to a time that works best for everyone. Once we have assembled a group we can figure out the best time.
Next, this is how the scoring is laid out:
QB, WR, WR, WR, RB, RB, TE, K, DEF, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN
Stat Categories: Passing Yards (25 yards per point)
Passing Touchdowns (6)
Rushing Yards (10 yards per point)

Fumble Recovery (2)
Block Kick (2)

Points Allowed 1-6 points (7)

Points Allowed 21-27 points (0)
Points Allowed 28-34 points (-1)
Points Allowed 35+ points (-4)
Right now the league is setup as free to join. I would like to see what you think about playing for a prize, which I find keeps people interested throughout the season.
Yahoo allows you to upgrade your league for 124.99 to the plus league, which I would be willing to do as long as everyone was willing to pitch in their share. For a 12 person team, each person would put in around 11 bucks.
Instead of upgrading the league to plus, I find some people enjoy playing for straight cash. I have played in a multitude of leagues with prizes for 1, 2 and 3. I am willing to put in at most $20. The amount doesnt matter to me. Other amounts could be $5, $10 or $15. Payout structure is 1st place 60%, 2nd place 35%, 3rd place 15%.
No prize, free
Here is the League ID: 430500 and Password: 4321.
All I ask if you join is to post under this message or email me at mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
with your preferred drafting day and if you would like Option A, B or C. Im leaning towards option B. Also include any opinions on how we can make this a top league. Lets have a great year.
