Hello peeps,

I want to start a fantasy league with you fine people. I could not find any other thread for a league this year so thought I would start one up!

I would be looking for 12-14 people, can do more people and/or be commissioner for more than one league if there is demand.

I was thinking of half point ppr but all rules can be up for debate with whoever wants to play.

Also would be up for starting a keeper league for peeps who are fantasy crazy like myself.

Lemme know if you are keen!

Sure! Count me in. Right when I said I was done managing 3 teams and left my family league...I turn around and join this one xD

I look forward to screaming and cheering at the same player simultaneously because I inevitably have him on my roster in one league and am also playing against him in another. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Side note, what timezones are you folks in? Would a 9:30pm ET draft work for everyone? @cotsygero - as commissioner I'll leave it up to you to make the final decision, but figured I'd get that conversation started!

Hey guys,

Thanks for the feedback. Looking good so far we have 7 people. Will wait for some more feedback. If you guys know any way to promote the league to other bomb fans, feel free to do that.

@Big_Denim yeh we will work out the kinks once we have enough players. I'm open to all suggestions and will make sure everyone can take part in the draft.

I'm new to GB, but I would be down to play! I'm a long time fantasy player and would love to get in another league.

@cotsygero: I would check in with @Marino and see if he can include this as a part of the upcoming community spotlight blog.

We're at 11 people now. Up to you. That may gain more attention than you want and then two leagues would be necessary. Up to you of you want to manage that!

Great work people, we have 11 already so I'm gonna get started on the rules of the league. Il put up some options and just let me know your favourite.

For point scoring I think we are set on half point ppr so we will leave it at that.

For which site to use: EPSN, CBS, YAHOO or other

Team set up:

Normal; QB,2RB,2WR,TE,Flex,K,DEC

2QB; Same as Normal but with 2 QB

Superflex; Same as normal but flex allows TE&QB.

Other

Type of league; Seasonal redraft or keeper. I don't think I will be able for a full dynasty but it would be cool to get a giantbomb keeper league going.

Let me know what ya think and if you don't care about set up, all good! Just be ready for the draft!

@cotsygero: Personally, I'd like to do normal team set up, keeper league sounds cool, and ESPN for the site

Hey guys,

Since we now have nearly 14 people I went ahead and made a 14 team half point ppr keeper league for us on espn. I agree with @bigtimesandwich that espn is the best site.

The following link will get you into the league: http://games.espn.com/ffl/tools/join?leagueId=1058290&k=c5a96&d=AAAABAAQJfIAAAfi%2F%2F%2F%2F%2FwAADlQ%3D&t=9

Please join ASAP so we can have it ready to go and set a draft date and time.

Also if you could let me know which team is yours after you join it would great. It is just so I know which Giantbomb user is in.

If more people come and want to join we can expand it into 2 separate leagues.

Thanks!

Great work people.

Whoever owns "team lecour", I do not know what happened but you managed to put your team in twice so I will be kicking one.

So we have 12 teams in the league which is great, I will leave the link up a little longer to try get the final 2 spots filled, if not I will change it to a 12 team league.

I can add polls on the ESPN message board for our league so keep an eye on that as I will post possible times for drafts. There are probably different time zones so want to try and accomadate everyone.

@bigtimesandwich I am very jealous of that team name!

Great to have you @ridleydragonz

Brilliant news, we now have 14 players thus we have a full league! Please see your mailbox for thoughts on a draft time.

Anybody seeing this message thread and still wants to play, please still leave a message here or feel free to dm me. Please be advise that to create another league we will need at least another 5/6 players and we can try double up with people who want to play 2 leagues but there is plenty of time left so do let me know if you want to play!!

I’m not in whatever chat you’re all in, but did you just change the rules of the league after I had to play the one seed in what was supposed to be a 2 week aggregate playoffs??
