OK I just signed up. My team name is the Bushees, which is a combination of Bush and Brees. Good luck to all.

The league is "unofficial" for now. Usually the mods are the ones that start the leagues.

I just wanted to get the ball rolling early because, well, I'm impatient.

I've created my own league with a better draft date.

Here is the information:

Max Teams: 12

Roster Positions: QB, WR, WR, WR, WR, RB, RB, TE, TE, W/R, K, DEF, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN

With 12 teams and all these starters free agency will be non existant for WR and RBs. People will hoard 3rd string running backs in case 2 people get injured in front of them because they have no better options. With 8 bench spots you can run no backups on Def and K and horde all the potential sleepers in depleted positions like WR and RB. To smoothly run a roster format like that you need less coaches.

But, that is something you learn as you go. I suggest trying a few custom leagues with different formats, and make a few of your own too trying different formats. I still experiment with new league formats every year, but I still tend to prefer a more standard format, with a few mods to bring up points from stats unused in standard leagues.

You probably shouldnt expect stellar results from everything this year, but Fantasy Football is about improvement through exploration and research, which comes with the seasons. And there is always a shot for a team to excell or a format to engage it's players. Welcome to Fantasy Football.

Exactly what I was saying. I find a 12 team league to be a bit much as it is, but a 12 team league with 12 starting positions and 8 bench positions? The live draft itself will be about 2-3 hours long at a minimum to fill out the rosters. But, to each his own. It's a learning experience.
