    The 2015 NFL football season is upon us, which means it's time again for MR Fantasy Football. I have reactivated the three leagues from last year on ESPN so some of you may have already gotten an email. I need to hear from everyone who wants to play again this year. Some of you have already posted your intentions to play, but anyone who hasn't needs to let me know they want to be involved again this year. If we have anyone drop out of the league then we will look at new players joining.

    This thread will be for the Founders League and includes the following team owners:

    Macrumors Founders League:

    Jobs Division
    @Moyank24 - in for 2015
    @TwinCities Dan - in for 2015
    @Queen of Spades - in for 2015
    @swiftaw - in for 2015
    @GoCubsGo - in for 2015

    Woz Division

    @rdowns - in for 2015
    @rick snagwell - in for 2015
    @MacNut - in for 2015
    mscriv - in for 2015


    The draft is Friday 9/4/15 at 8:30 PM US Central time. (Sorry Jaffa Cake)

    Please ensure that you can access your team at the league ESPN site. If you have any questions or problems let me know. Don't wait until the last minute to check your team and mess up the draft for everyone else. Make sure everything is working as it's supposed to and let me know if something is wrong.

    Will be interesting to see where Brady gets drafted due to his 4 game suspension. Take a chance and grab him early or hope he falls to 2nd or 3rd round???

    In for 2015, although I'm traveling for Aug 29-31 so those wouldn't be good draft days for me - unless it is before 1pm ET on the 29th.

    Dudes, please don't pick the 29th for draft day. ESPN auto-draft is terrible and I won't have a reliable internet connection (I don't think) for much of the day. Pretty please. :D

    You make a convincing argument for us to draft the 29th. :p

    I would like to get through the preseason games to see who rises or breaks before we draft.

    Now week 3 is by all purposes the final tune up for the starters. I would propose the 30th, or 4th. Labor day weekend is going to be busy for a lot of folks.

    Looks like the other league has an opening, of course it won't be as good as this league but it's something. :p

    AustinIllini has already been added to the Mac OS league. We still need 1 or 3 players to balance out all leagues. This league is full so it's good to go. The other two leagues have 9 and 8 teams signed up.

    I see a lot of folks saying September 4th would be a good draft date. My only concern with that date is that it's a Friday and likely a work day for most of us. That means that we couldn't draft until probably later in the evening US time. That would be very difficult for our European players in this league who are 6+ hours ahead of us time zone wise. Generally, in the past this league has drafted at like 2:00 in the afternoon to allow for this time difference. Is Jaffa the only European player we have? I was thinking there was a second person in Europe.

    Moyank, is Jaffa going to be active here on MR again or are we just going to see him in the ESPN league? He hasn't posted at MR since August.
