    Awesome! Send me a pm and I’ll send you a link to join.

    You draft players and select which one you want to play each week (you can set it to auto draft). When your selections do well you get points. The points determine the weeks winners and eventually the league championship.

    Whatever!

    You should feel lucky that I let you win a couple games last year before I ran away with the league championship!!!!

    My daughter is now 3, so I have an extra staff member on board. It's also worth noting that she gave an enthusiastic "yes" when asked if she'd like to play fantasy football this year. It was an impressive interview, so she's now promoted to VP of Everything. My franchise is growing. Beware.

    Maybe.

    Run me through the basics (I've played before, but I want to know the details of how this league will be set up).

    1. what site will be used?
    2. does the site to be used have an auto draft feature?
    3. is there a buy in or is it just for fun?
    4. when is draft day? (if no specific date yet, then would it most likely be a weekend or weekday?

    Thanks in advance for the info.

    1. Yahoo
    2. Yes
    3. Fun!
    4. Good question ... when's the draft? Are you going to give us a heads up on sending out the invites? I rarely check that email, so I need to know in advance, please.

    The Basics:

    You create a team, fill it through the draft, and then choose the players from your team that you want "on the field" for you every Sunday. Your players earn you points based on production, and if your team scores the most points (collective player points), then you win the game for the week.

    I've told this story before, but I'll tell it again. My first year playing FF was back in like 1999. It was an office league, and we had the draft in the conference room with a draft board and a bunch of post-it notes. Lots of food and booze. I had zero idea what I was doing. I picked my favorite players. About half way through the season, I was not only in last place, but I was clearly the worst team in the league. I decided to just put in my favorite players for the rest of the season, and forget about it. Well, some time goes by, and I get an email asking me if I want to wager any money on the game next weekend. Hmmm ... why? I was in the "Super Bowl". Turns out that my team went on a rampage and wound up in the Big Game. I lost, but it was a hell of an exciting weekend! I've been hooked ever since.

    Yeah, it's annoying when they make you click over to YT.
