but would anyone be wiling to allow me to sit "side-saddle" with them through this league...I've never done a FF league and not sure I want/can devote the time necessary like I did to the SFFMD during the draft process, but would love to see how one of these go. Not sure if it's even possible, like if the password/logins are restricted to 14.

I would not interefere w/ any decisions and wouldn't "touch" the team at all, just thought this might be an opportunity to see if this is something I'd ever want to do or not.

I know this must sound incredibly stupid, but if anyone is willing, please let me know...if not, no biggie! Thanks all!


You can have co-owners I believe... I've never done it but I believe I saw the option.


Thanks JD...let me know if you all don't get enough participation...worst case, I can be the "punching bag" of the league, but would prefer to kinda watch the process play out from the side.


Youve never done fantasy football?

Well, you wouldnt need nearly the time for FF that you needed for SFFMD. For fantasy football, you just need that one evening free to draft (or you can use auto draft), and then 20-30 minutes a week to set and tinker with your lineup.

Some people go really crazy and spend hours tinkering with their lineup. With my money league I do spend more time with it, but for leagues like this I usually just look at the players and matchups and go with my gut.


Nope, never done FF, that's why I wanted to go "in" with someone to see how things go. I can "google" it all, I suppose, and read up on it, but not sure on which positions are best to draft first, etc. Also, heard the terms, but have no idea what PPR, dynasty, etc. mean...and I guess some leagues draft individual defensive players and some just so defenses as whole? What's more important, points, yds, pass D, run D, sacks, tackles...I know nothing!! Embarassed


Its best to draft a kicker first. Get two if you can.

Or take a star RB and trade him to me for two kickers.

Im nice like that.

Cool

Is the draft like our SFFMD draft in that it is a "snake" draft? I want to know so if I get lucky and get one of those picks at the end, I can grab Suisham and Longwell as 43M suggested in the 1st Rd!! Seriously, though, is that the standard way to draft in these things?

And you all don't have to be worried about being of those guys/gals in the FF commercials crying because they've failed so miserably...I've got that position locked up for this league! Wink

Stuck at 11 still...

Might open it up to others in FF outside the Steeler forum if no one else signs up soon.

Haven't been around here for a while but I see this as a good way to get me back into NFL before the season.

Plus I have to defend my title Wink

Also, seeing as it's a 14 man league does anyone else think we should have a flex?

I might change it to 12 since we were stuck on 11 for a long time
