Fantasy Football Virgins?

Postby IowaCubs » Thu Jul 09, 2009 1:36 pm

Is anyone interested in a fantasy football virgins league? I've only played in one season, but I might be convinced to do it again if there are enough people who read Razzball and want to play in a fantasy football league for their first or second time.

Thoughts?

This would be a free league, of course, and I'd be happy to be the commissioner of this league if we can spread the word about it and get enough players.
14 team h2h keeper (keep 5), $101 FAAB budget. C,1B,2B,SS,3B,MI,CI,U,5SP,2RP... It's standard 5x5, but we use quality starts instead of wins. I currently have $1 left in FAAB money.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

Autodrafting OK?

I'm already pushing the limits of domestic acceptance with three baseball leagues.

And I don't want to get up in the middle of the night ;)
This IS my f**king outlet!

I'm with Steve. Baseball's way too time consuming to consider football. Gotta know when to say when.

Yeah, I suppose it's not for everyone. But if my past experience is an indicator of time spent on fantasy football, it works like this...

1) Iowa studies fantasy football sites for 15 minutes prior to draft.
2) He then shows up for a draft that takes like 45 minutes after having studied fantasy football sites for 15 minutes.
3) Next he sets his lineup on Thursday, because for some reason, some football games are played on Thursday.
4) The following Thursday for 5 minutes he adds hot player to take place of injured player or bye week.
5) Repeat steps 3-4

Anyway, it's not for everyone for sure, but there's got to be 12 or so dudes who read Razzball who have only a passing interest in football. This is to say, they're interested when the Bears make the playoffs and they don't want to look like an ass in front of the in-laws who live in Omaha and watch 6 hours of football on Sunday (the day after watching 6 hours of Nebraska football games on Saturday).

Yeah, agreed. But I'm worried that if I watch one single game of football, I'll get compulsive about my team and start watching every game and studying my team.
