The league continued last year with Haemish as commish - we going to fire it up this year?  People interested in rejoining?

I went ahead and renewed the league. If you had a team last year, you automatically have the same team this year. I could have made it a keeper league but decided against it. If you want to sign up, the league is here:

If you want in, send me a PM with your email address and I'll send an invite. There are 10 teams currently if everyone returns from last year.

My team was awful last year and somehow I always get a QB I hate, but I'll play again.

I think we have all 10 teams from last year - does anyone else want to join?

If someone drops or if you find yourself with an odd number of teams, I'd play (haven't played Fantasy Football with WayAbvPar in a few years)

Always in.

I noticed that Yahoo is the only one doing Point Per First Down scoring.

Want to give it a go?

Also, I don't mind opening it to 12 if Haem wants to add those last two in.

I've opened the league to two more slots if we can find another besides ynotgolf. I set the draft date at Sat, Sep 1 8:00pm CDT.

I'm not sure about the Point Per First Down scoring. Anyone else have thoughts on it?

I like the idea.  Puts more value than just yardage alone.  Does it apply to QBs?

The settings say 12 teams max, but I only count 10 teams.  Just FYI.

Yes, I have one player who has said they'll play but I would like an even number of teams - so I'm keeping that 11th and 12th slot open. Anyone want to join?

I'm thinking of cutting down the WR/RB slots to only 2/1 and adding a WR/RB/TE slot. Thoughts?

I am always a fan of more flexibility. Makes waiver pickups and roster construction more interesting.

I think my team is criminally bad.

Which team is yours?  I'm Jameis Lannister for reference.  Need to change mine for this season soon.

Happy with my RBs and TE.  I completely forgot this was a 3 WR league though and I was late to the WR party.  As a result, I have some concerns...

Still, I think I like this team.  Looks fun.

Jesus, I can't believe I forget this was happening, since I was the one who, you know, set the fucking date.

And yet, other than QB, I like my roster. And the only reason I'm unsure at QB is because Wentz is hurt with no indication when he'll be back and BLAKE GODDAMN BORTLES is my backup.

My team is actually really good on paper, so I'll likely finish 8th.

Weird that the autodraft didn't give me any bench WR or TE.

I wish there was a way to tell autodraft "hey, only one Kicker goddammit".  And the same goes for defense.  I always end up wasting picks.

In general, I do not like my team.  This rarely happens, and I think it is because I got a middle of the round slot for my picks, which doesn't seem to ever work with my autodraft pre-selection strategy.  Oh well.

There is a way to tell it how many maximum players you want at a certain position.  You need to fiddle with presets, but the options are there.

Meanwhile, I was torn on my first pick so I asked my fiancee to choose Bell or David Johnson.  She picked Johnson, but I couldn't bring myself to do it because of my Pittsburgh bias.  Whoops!

Gonna end up with the 2nd or 3rd highest point total in week 1 and start 0-1. Same as it ever was.
