  1. 1 last spot remaining Very active group of managers ready to begin a startup draft in the coming days. Email me quickly to claim the last available spot.
  2. 5 spots remaining Looking for active and dedicated managers
  3. I've played in numerous dynasty leagues in all 4 sports for the past 12-13 years. Still in a very strong dynasty football league that just completed year 12 so I have seen first hand what it takes to run a successful dynasty league. I have run leagues in the past so this isn't new territory for me by any means. The league will be 16 teams and through Yahoo! - There is no money involved. The draft will be offline, either through a chat or a forum. The plan is to keep it simple and not have anyone signing up for a bunch of sites/applications. After the draft everything will be run through Yahoo with no other sites/applications needed. The plan is to begin the draft once I have 16 managers in place. Further rules and guidelines for the draft will be released after that, such as time per pick, etc. There will also be a second draft for rookies that will take place after the NFL draft and likely on the yahoo msg board once football is open up on Yahoo! Once again, further rules and guidelines for this draft will be released later, such as how many rounds, etc. Some differences between a normal league: 1 - No Team DEF. Instead we will run with IDPs. It will likely be 8 IDP slots. I haven't decided yet if I would run a separate draft for just defensive players or make it all one draft. This is something that could be discussed once the league is filled. Some play in leagues with both Team DEF and IDPs, but I feel by moving it to a number like 8 it would put enough of an emphasis on DEF to ignore Team DEF. 2 - FAAB. I'm sure several that read this have played in a league with FAAB. I'm not a fan of this for baseball or basketball but have had a growing interest in seeing it implemented in this fantasy football league. League setup will be: QB, WR, WR, RB, RB, TE, W/R/T, W/R/T, K, D, D, D, D, D, D, D, D with 5-7 BN slots (still trying to figure out the appropriate # of bench slots with the increased IDP and league size) Finally, I will not be just accepting the first people that post their email and say "I'm in". I already have several long time managers that have proven their dedication to a dynasty league and am looking to fill in the remaining slots with managers with proven backgrounds. The best way to apply for the league is to email me at corey_rideout2000@yahoo.com.
  4. No giant leap from Powell coming. He is just a piece for us. My guess is that there will be multiple different starters at SG and the hot hand approach will be in effect. Don't rule out guys like RHJ and Stanley Johnson for having some impact as the season goes along. They clearly aren't reaching the hype we had on them when they were drafted, but they can defend and will have their few games a year that gets us excited about them again. Powell has stretches of effectiveness mixed in with stretches where he looks bad - I don't really expect that to change. BTW, raps fan that probably seen 80 games last year when including the playoffs. We will lean heavily on Siakam, Lowry, Gasol, Ibaka and FVV and hope that guys like OG, Powell, RHJ, Stanley Johnson and even guys like Boucher and Davis can help piece together a solid rotation and bench (which has been our strong suit the last couple seasons).
  5. Completely agree. The system is broken for the RB position. The most exciting position in football should be compensated. However, the argument at hand is whether or not Pollard can hold down the position and my belief from what I have read and considering the o-line factor is that he will be able to...
  6. If I'm Zeke I'm hurrying back before people realize that the Cowboys O-line is a large part of the success. Don't get me wrong, Zeke is a top 5 NFL back and that's being conservative. But my personal belief is that the cowboys have spent so much on their o-line that you can make an average back become an above average back. End of the day the cowboys need Dak to make another leap. If he does, along with that o-line and the weapons they have at WR, I think Tony Pollard will be more than capable of handling the cowboys RB spot. BTW, the cowboys spent a 4th round pick on this kid. This isn;'t some flyer in the 7th round or a practice squad guy. They invested a bit in him and clearly had him rated really high internally.
  7. Fantasy football is all about piecing together a team week to week. If Pollard can be an RB2 for 5-6 weeks until zeke returns then why it that a bad thing? If he performs well he would make for a top handcuff when zeke does come back.
  8. I still have him for now. Lots of talks and the Texans do likely sign someone, but it hasn't happened yet!
  9. I would assume the 'car' is a closing gig and 'steering the car' is having the stuff to be a closer. I guess maintaining control could be him having trouble staying awake at times while driving? lol
  10. Magill looked strong in the 9th. Got Meadows to ground out and caught Pham looking at a 95mph FB on the outside corner. Choi hit a deep fly ball to end the game. Looked very in control.
