    Welcome to Year 3 of Fantasy Football. In season 1 we had 12 participants, and last year we had 8 participants, and @HAAK72 won it all, beating me in the final. With some new blood in the forum, I'm hoping for at least 10 people who want to join in on this. I'm also trying to get this set early as I think it'd be awesome to do an in person draft for those who can. I'd post the picks online so that others could draft if they weren't with the group live.

    We did a $50 buy-in last year, with some bonuses for the weekly high score, the highest score in the season, and the most total points in the season. I'm down to do that again, but we could raise or lower the buy-in depending on what the majority wants.

    The league will remain PPR, and depending on how many people we have, we'll do 2 QBs or an extra "Offensive Player" (which is usually best served by a 2nd QB). Again, everything is up to you guys.

    Let me know if your in.

    My friend who's participated the past two years (only if we need him in to make an even number).

    So that's at least 8, which is pretty good at this point.

    @BoBoBREWSKI
    @RipCityDSCPL

    We're probably gonna have 10 participants.

    You wouldn't do it if there was 10? We had a lotta fun last year with 8. 10-12 is ideal.

    I have been playing since 2007 and manage a couple leagues, Id play if you got it to at least 10(9 others)I even have an extra 12lb bronze trophy I could donate. It was over $200 when I bought it. It has a name plate on it that says “Just Win Baby” which is one of the league names I manage but it could be replaced easily. Is this snake or auction? Keeper?

    A trophy would be amazing to pass around year to year haha. We'll have 10 for sure. It's an Snake-ESPN league (we could start doing keepers if people wanted). PM me the address to your ESPN account and I'll send the invite.

    @dviss1 IIRC, you said you'd finally participate this year. I'm holding you to that!

    If a td is 6 pts per across the board (QB,RB,WR) i'd be interested. I hate that 4pt. QB td B.S.

    I'm split between 4 and 5. 6 is too overpowered, QBs get many more TDs than positional players. If we do an "Offensive Player" slot, it'll have to be 4 per TD so that there isn't much gap between QB2s and positional players.
    Gonna try to do it in person this year but post each pick in a thread for anyone who's drafting online.

    I'm in for sure again! I saw an email that the league was opened again via ESPN. I'll sign up. I like your payouts above and the format works for me too.

    Here's the thing... New events have changed things.

    I've decided to boycott the NFL.

    Yeah it’s cool to have something at the end besides cash, not sure what the league name is but I can put a new name plate on it? “S2 Fantasy Football League”, “Rip City FFL”, something like that or whatever you already call it.

    I'd prefer if you guys didn't play for money or if someone else was bookkeeper.

    Bones..... I don't think I should play this season. I have not paid attention to the NFL, like years previously(First time in my life I've not watched the Draft.) I have just had other things that were more important to do then read over who signed where and all that.

    I don't want to be the guy who is flying by the seat of his pants and totally winging it because that's what my picks would be for my team.

    Unless you really need me because you don't have enough, I am going to have to bow out this season.

    Just do a little bit of research every day. Draft would be in a month, and 5 minutes of Googling for fantasy football advice would go a long way. Then, put together a draft big board based on the info you research and what players sound good and bad to you. There's a tool on ESPN for that. I could help you.
