Fantasy Football 2017

Postby Darkfoxx » Thu Jun 22, 2017 11:49 am

Invites have been sent to everyone who played last year, except DBol. Fuck him! Pickles is taking over his spot.

Good luck everyone! :thumbsup: :drink:

We're using PayPal yet again this season to handle funds because Yahoo's Cash League is a piece of fucking shit. $20 will be needed from each manager. The payment deadline is Wednesday, August 30th. To pay, simply PayPal me $20: justin_maciak@yahoo.com

List of who has paid (manually updated): https://football.fantasysports.yahoo.co ... 8/finances

Draft is Wednesday, September 6th @ 8:00 pm EDT.

You have until Wednesday August 30th at 3:00am EDT to select your keeper. Please do it before then to avoid issues. People who select after the deadline will be ridiculed and laughed at...and more importantly, their keeper will be assigned by me. I'll show no mercy.

Keeper guidelines:
What round was the player drafted in? Was he a keeper last year?
If you can answer "4th round or later" and "no" to these two questions, then that player is eligible. Simple as that. Ask if you have questions!

You can choose a player on your team that was undrafted. If you have a player on your team that was drafted by another team and then dropped, they must be from the 4th round or later.

If you still don't know who you can choose, ask me and I'll give you a list.

Set keeper in My Team > Choose Keepers.

Previous year's draft info (use to determine keeper):
Final roster: https://football.fantasysports.yahoo.co ... lastseason
Draft results: https://football.fantasysports.yahoo.co ... aftresults

Players drafted in Round 14 are not eligible, as they were keepers last year. If you take a look at your final roster, just throw out any players that have Round 1, 2, 3, and 14 as their 2016 Draft Position and you will be left with the players who are eligible as a keeper player.

For example, the Keeper-eligible players on my team are:
Jameis Winston (TB - QB)
Tyreek Hill (KC - WR)
Rob Kelley (Was - RB)
Greg Olsen (Car - TE)
Stefon Diggs (Min - WR)
Jarvis Landry (Mia - WR)
Terrelle Pryor Sr. (Was - WR)
Tyler Boyd (Cin - WR)
Dion Lewis (NE - RB)
Stephen Gostkowski (NE - K)
Miami (Mia - DEF)

Invites sent to:
Cum Hose (Scott) somnambul33tor -at- gmail.com
Pickles (Dave) carvsdriver -at- gmail.com
Hernandez for Prez (Reid) reid.edwards -at- gmail.com
RGC (Zack) zacksills -at- aol.com
Slack Jawed Yokels (Sean) jumjamapop -at- comcast.net
the ball breakers (Matt) mkeenan8411 -at- yahoo.com
TheRapists (Mac) abreviu -at- gmail.com
Very inTimidating (Tim) cinos256 -at- yahoo.com
Space Dinos (Andrew) spazsquirrle -at- gmail.com

Prize Distribution:
Prizes will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place players. Prize money will be dispersed via PayPal.

1st = $120
2nd = $60
3rd = $20

This year's changes:
  • Change to Standard Scoring (10yds = 1 pt, no bonuses) *Note that passing yds will go to standard settings: 25yds = 1 pt, no bonus
  • Trade processing time changed to 2 days
  • Consolation Bracket winner gets 1st draft pick
  • Remove Roster Lock for Consolation Bracket (with the stipulation that waiver priorities will be manually edited so that championship teams have first pick over consolation teams)
  • Direct IR slot adds will be allowed

Next Year's Discussion/Poll Options:
-Flex slot (possibly remove 1 BN if changing to pure flex)
-Wavier system (constant waivers per day instead of sun-tues)
-Waiver time (waiting time, currently 3 days)
-Look at defensive scoring (3 and outs forced, other metrics, look at removing points allowed: +/-5 shutout/blowout)

We're less than a month away from the draft. I really need everyone to pay their league dues and select their keeper. Just send $20 on PayPal to justin_maciak@yahoo.com and select your keeper.

You have until Wednesday August 30th at 3:00am EDT to select your keeper and pay your dues. Don't be a fool!

Glad you could join us!

The emails are sent out through Yahoo's system, so it's going to whatever email you used to sign up. I just sent you a test email through Yahoo titled "Testing...". Let me know if you get it.

Everyone: Make sure you choose your keeper as well! Keepers chosen after Wednesday August 30th will be chosen by me...and it won't be pretty.

Here ya go, ya lazy bum:

Philip Rivers (LAC - QB)
Golden Tate (Det - WR)
Donte Moncrief (Ind - WR)
Tyler Eifert (Cin - TE)
Taylor Gabriel (Atl - WR)
Doug Baldwin (Sea - WR)
Randall Cobb (GB - WR)
Kirk Cousins (Was - QB)
Caleb Sturgis (Phi - K)
Cincinnati (Cin - DEF)
Seattle (Sea - DEF)

For your reference, Ezekiel Elliott and Brandin Cooks are ineligible because they were drafted in the first three rounds. David Johnson is ineligible because he was a keeper last year.
