    Since the title was a question, I'll respond. I'm really not a big fan at all of fantasy leagues. My idea of a "fantasy" doesn't involve 11 men. :)

    I understand the intrigue, and I get why people like them...but just the same...I'd rather just root for whoever I choose to root for. My friends are always saying, "I hope X team wins, but I hope Y player does really well, 'cause he's on my fantasy team."

    I do think that fantasy leagues would be better with 30 people than they would with 10, which is what my friends' leagues usually have. I find way more interesting in finding that niche player, that role player, that makes the difference than bragging about all the superstars that are on one team because there are only 10 teams.

    All that being said...best of luck with your league!!

    hey d wade (lol that sounds funny)...dont you wanna increase the # of QB's and maybe # of WR's?? Like that you have something more to look at on sunday (instead of just focusing on 1 QB), and the same with WR's.? Like that if 1 QB does bad, you have hopes with the other. And also this increases points, and thats always fun. Just a suggestion...

    Count me in... so long as you don't mind a girl beating you :p

    And one QB - half the skill is choosing the best matchup!

    Is it live draft or autodraft?

    Much prefer live drafts. Now next question - what ungodly hour of the morning will I have to stay up to that night since I'm in London! :rolleyes:

    Ah well, at least there's the 'exhausted' excuse for those late round 'reach' picks

    i agree AND disagree. you are right about looking forward to the other qb.

    however... i dont like doing TONS of players.. like 2 qbs, 4 wrs, 3 rbs... b/c there simply isnt enough players in the nfl. it gets annoying having guys that will never play on the strting roster. i like decision making, and you will have to put your best guys forward.

    Yikes... that's 2am over here! Better schedule a quiet day on 24th at work! ;)

    Not many points for the QBs... only 1 point for 300 yards!

    no no...

    Passing Yards (25 yards per point; 1 points at 300 yards)
    Passing Touchdowns (6)


    that 1 point at 300 yards is an extra point. like a small bonus for throwing 300+

    Beautiful people.

    Just a reminder that this league is set for a live draft this Wednesday (8/23) at 9 p.m. EST.

    Hoping everyone is still interested and committed to playing the full season?
