idea for new type of league

Postby pullins125 » Wed Oct 06, 2010 1:04 am

i have been searching online for a league but cant find exactly what i am looking for. i am looking for or want to see a league created kinda like a no-advantage league. there is no draft and everybody on the league gets every player but can only use the player one time for the regular season. you would use 1qb,2rb,3wr,1te,1k,1d every week and once you use them you are no longer able to use them. the league would have to be a total points league due to the fact you have all year to use players. if there is a league like this i wanna join and if not would love to help get one started. this is probably as hard as leagues go but there is no advantage to anybody. whats your opinions?

It's a cool idea but if you want to take draft position advantage out of fantasy football, auction leagues achieve this very thing.
QB - A Rodgers, E Manning
RB - A Foster, S Jackson, R Mendenhall, T Jones, R Bush
WR - G Jennings, L Fitz, S Smith (Car), P Harvin, V Jackson
TE - A Hernandez, J Tamme

This isn't really a league format, it is more of a design for a big audience contest.

I did participate back in '05 or so in something just like what you described, and if I recall, it was operated by the Sporting News' web site. Once you selected a player on a given week, you couldn't use him again all year. They gave away some cash prizes and some subscriptions or something as prizes.

If you are interested, reply here or PM me and I'll see if I can dig out the details of what web site ran this, it may still be operating. I'm not sure, as I lost interest.

It was an interesting diversion, but it is not fantasy football, it is just a contest, more like a pick em pool.

I know they have stuff like this for the playoffs, but I'm not sure about the regular season. It's a cool idea for a big contest type thing (which you could create a smaller group for, like in NCAA bball pools). I think it would take a lot more football knowledge than you expect, considering how many players you would eventually need to use over the course of the year. It really would make playing matchups incredibly critical.
