I'm going to give the fantasy league another chance this season. There's about a month to go to get the draft in before the NFL season starts. As always we will be using ESPN as the host. I want to have at least 8 teams, any less and I don't think it's worth it. There is a pretty simple setup with just about everything being at standard settings. The only exception is as follows:

- Removed are any miscellaneous kick or punt return and defensive points prevent duplicates from happening with team D/ST.

Note that I am switching from the free agent auction to the generic waiver system. I've thought about it some and think it promotes a bit more parity by giving the teams with the worst records a chance to get back in it. A competitive league overall is my goal and the generic waiver system makes more sense in that regard. No season acquisition limit for fantasy football.

Up for discussion is what kind of draft we're doing and when to have it. The point per reception debate is open as well. Trade deadline will be December 7th, a day before the playoffs start. The amount of votes needed to veto a trade will be proportional to how many teams are in the league. With 8-9 teams there would be 5 votes, 10 teams there would be 6 votes, etc. My view is that more than half the league should be against a trade to veto it.

As always if you want to join make sure you stay active. Nobody likes a league with only half of the members actually participating. Send your email address to me in a PM if you want to join. I'll send out invites as I get them.

Just got the notification via the ESPN app on my phone. I'm in again. I vote for PPR. I say we try out an auction.

If you need a team to keep the league alive, I'll play. I just know that I tend to not be as active as needed given I play in a few money leagues and give those my attention. So with that, I don't want to take a spot away from someone who really wants to play. However, like I said, I don't mind filling in a spot if needed and can certainly be there for a draft. Just let me know.

Noted. I'll keep you as a reserve right now.

Same goes for me. If you need a vote, I think an auction draft would be kind of cool (since I don't do it in any of my other leagues). Not a fan of PPR.

I'll do it for sure if we have 12 teams. Never been a fan of the 8 or 10 team leagues.

I wouldn't hold your breath. The past couple of years we've struggled to get 10 teams. I get where you're coming from since the size of a league really makes a difference in how it's played, but unless some more people come forward expect closer to 8 teams than 12. Let me know if you're still interested with the smaller format.

RavensTillIDie I will also put you down as a reserve with Flaccomania.
