Yep... it is that time again.

I'll set the league up but had a question first:

Do you want to do a keeper league?

For those of you that do not know what that is, we will set up a league and then draft as usual. However, at the end of the year, you get to designate players (usually 2 or 3 players) that are on your team that you get to "Keep" for the next year. This is kind of fun when you have a favorite player on your team and have the same participants year after year.

Otherwise it is all the same rules as usual.

Also, just to get an idea of how many people will be playing, just leave a post and let me know if you are interested.

Cool, JP. I will be happy to do the trolling for players. Let us know what the size of the league should be. I know that, in baseball, you argued that (as I recall) the league should be limited to 12 because the pool of quality baseball players is not too deep,

Oh, no, was that the reason? I was a baseball fool when I signed up. Just now moving upward to baseball dumkopf.. I thought it was more re "just the right size" re available athletes and so on.

Anyway, I'm interested. I know a bit more about football, but haven't done the fantasy game. Already working on my team name.

Many of the sub-prime baseball players end up on my team, it seams.

I'm thinking 12 is a good size for football too... but see who we can get and if we end up with more interested players we can always expand.

Anyone, by the way, is welcome to join in. Knowledge about the NFL is not really needed. Osso and I - and a few other players can attest to that. The time required to play is pretty minimal. Trash-talking about other teams is strongly encouraged.

Hmmm ... perhaps the "Ticomaniacs"

Count me in and a keeper's league is fine with me as I'll probably sign up for the next years as well.

I want to see if my very poor knowledge of football keeps garnering better results than my average knowledge of baseball.

It would be a pleasure to join you folks in another battle.
Keeper league, or not, either is fine.
New teams name(hint):

I think mine is Dognosed Sharks. We'll see. (Smarter sounding than Dognosed Flounders). Where do I sign?

I don't care about the keeper stuff, either way.

I sped read a 2006 fantasy football thread, can tell there's stuff I don't know about the fantasy game already, but I'm less thrown by that news this go-around.

Are there players available like there are on the baseball fantasy game? Well, I'll read dem rules when I get there.

My only suggestion is this: As I recall, you restricted the play-offs to the top 6 teams. Fine, but that meant bye-weeks for some. Can we do 8, in order to keep the interest up and avoid the byes? I don't really care; just an idea.
There seem to be no quibbles about the scoring categories. So I would suggest you go ahead and set up the league. PM the folks who have expressed an interest with the Yahoo League name and ID# (or pm that to me and I'll do it) so that they can sign up, and then you could publish it publically on A2K a few days later to fill out the league. Your choice.
Thanks for doing this again. Johnboy

New players are certainly welcome. Alex, for example, joined the A2K Fantasy Baseball league this season and he is currently in...um, never mind.. He knows more about football.

The Lions aren't even at training camp, and I'm taking shots from realjohnboy. I see how it is going to be.
Alex's rule number one for fantasy football. Do not select your team based on your home team, the Detroit Lions.

But maybe Barry will come out of retirement this year?
