A Fantasy League on ESPN
 
I am thinking of getting a fantasy league together on ESPN for 10 people on here. I would like to get 10 people and get input on what the buy in should be. I thought we could do it for cash or buy gift certificates from Blowout and the top 3 teams get paid, I dont know the rules on fantasy leagues through here but I would be commish and than have somebody who is trusted on here hold the money, I also thought about playing for cards, we would have to set a bv and make sure nobody sent scrubs and then let winners pick 3-4 cards and 2nd picks some and so on, with 3-4 people getting cards back, PM me or post here if interested and how you would wana do it, It will be a typical league with points for recpetions.

I'd be interested. Maybe a case of 2010 Football for 1st place, then smaller prizes for 2nd & 3rd

ajlaxmn 05-30-2010 07:25 PM

I'd definitely be down for either one of those options.

I would be down.

Ok, Im gonna email chris from BO and we will decide on a case of cards. What we will do is buy one case of cards and split the cost 10 ways, if the case has 16 boxes, the winner will get to pick 8 boxes, 2nd will get to pick 5 and 3rd would get the last 3. If that sounds good, we will take the first 10 people who respond. I will email chris and see if we can send payments that way to them or If I will take payments and order the case and then I will divvy up and ship the boxes to the winners

vikingsordie 06-04-2010 03:53 PM

That sounds good to me. Count me in, hopefully we get a couple more people.

Footsteps 06-08-2010 09:02 PM

Anyone else interested?

BroncosFAN#1 06-09-2010 11:27 PM

Well, Im hoping as the season draws near, moe people will be interested. I rarely read this section so I will post a heads up in the Football section next month too. For you 2 guys that are in, post how you woud wanna do it. I wil use a half point per recpetion too and 4 points for a passing touchdown. I also thought we could set like a $100 bv and you have to put a decent card that has that bv in the pot but some people would put a crappy card that has a crazy high bv in the pot. I dont think that way would work. Throw ur opinions in though

The Madbacker 06-11-2010 12:35 AM

I'm in..............

Footsteps 06-11-2010 12:48 AM

Broncos - standard ESPN/Yahoo scoring. I'd prefer yahoo. No PPR league. Maybe we agree on a 2 player keeper league

As for the stakes, I have no preference just yet.

cdizz 06-11-2010 11:20 AM

I'm down 100%

BroncosFAN#1 06-13-2010 02:02 AM

Im fine with a keeper league if we can make sure all 10 people are planning on staying for a while. The ppr thing I do like but I only do a half point per reception so its kind of good for people who like it and people who dont. I think we are at 6 people now so 4 more and We can discuss the stakes and im thinking maybe we set a value of a card and people pick 3-4 cards of their own and then the rest of the league votes on which cards they would want. I will then get those cards from the Players and after the season, we will have the winners pick which cards they want from the 10 cards. Its just an idea so if anybody has any other ideas, please feel free to throw them out there. I like this idea because It sounds different and fun. We would do a draft type deal for the Winners at the end to pick which cards they wanted. The winner would pick 1 card and then 2nd a card, 3rd a card and then 1st would pick another and so on. Juts an idea so please throw some opinions out there guys but I like this but I dont card either way. A blowout gift certificate would be good too and maybe we could have them add a little to the pot too but I dont expect them too, We could make it a public view league and name it through them so they get a little advertising, Thanks guys and lets get 4 more people

WoodyThaKid13 06-13-2010 02:27 AM

I would certainly be in, please PM me with anything you need to get this going.

Footsteps 06-13-2010 11:11 AM

I don't plan on going anywhere, but I do see your point about getting 10 people that plan on sticking around here. I'd consider a 1/2 ppr league, but let's see what others say.

cdizz 06-14-2010 12:23 PM

I like the gift card or case idea. I think it would take a while for everyone to decide on cards that meets value of a buy in.Just my two pennies.

washingtonmark 06-16-2010 03:36 AM

I would definitely be interested in doing a keeper league, or a 1 year league.

I definitely agree yahoo is the best place for fantasy football.

I think cash is more fun to play for, but I would also be willing to play for boxes.

Shelden916 06-16-2010 03:42 AM

I would also be interested, but would prefer cash/PayPal. I could do cards, but have been selling off a lot of them. I would still be in if we are doing cards though, I could just go buy one for the league. J
ust would hope I would do better then last year when my first two picks were Steve Slaton and Matt Forte. :mad:

BroncosFAN#1 06-16-2010 10:05 PM

OK, for al who are interested please send me a PM with ur email address and how you what you would like to pay for, I can get the funds and order 3 gift cards for blowout or I like the order a case idea and then give up boxes from the case to 3-4 people , if its a 12 box case id do, 6 to 1st, 3 to 2nd, 2 to 3rd and 1 to 4th or go 6,4,2 to 3 spots but email me with how you would like to do it and what kind of case you would want or if u would wanna do just cash or gift cards for blowout, title the PMs with Fantasy football so I dont delete it and I can get emails to first 10 people who sign up, its only 2 months from draft time so I need to get started, I will use typical rules with a half point per reception unless enough people want no ppr, let me know in the PM but lets get this done

Redbirdgrad 06-24-2010 02:27 PM

Looks like you already have enough interest, but I'll recommend you either vote on doing a PPR league or not doing one. From PLENTY of experience, the 1/2 thing just to split the difference doesn't make either party truly happy.

If you're looking for true value for a wide receiver to his team, PPR is the way to go.

BroncosFAN#1 06-24-2010 06:36 PM

Ive ran my leagues the last couple years with just .5 ppr and it works pretty well I think. It doesnt add to many points to scores but it can still make a diference

Redbirdgrad 06-24-2010 07:29 PM

But if you're going to add it at all, go full out. This .5 stuff is too wishy washy...

canuhandle23 06-25-2010 04:53 PM

id want in..i suggest

.5 ppr..rbs who katch are a tab more valuable thats how a steven jackson is a beast even if he doesnt get a td

1 point every ten yard rushing and recieving

1 point every 25 passing

all tds worth 6.

i also suggest a flex spot wr/rb

starting requirments

qb, 3 wrs 2 rb a flex rb or wr a te def kicker

and i would suggest 12 teams..10 becomes to easy very little stragey and everyone will have a good rb corp every week

Redbirdgrad 06-25-2010 06:43 PM

To each his own I guess...

vikingsordie 06-27-2010 03:09 PM

So how is this coming along?? Have you created the league yet?

BroncosFAN#1 06-27-2010 04:14 PM

Im still waiting for 10 PMs with email addresses. Im gonna go through and PM the people who posted on here and ask if they want to do it and the first 10 email addys I get are the first 10 people who get in. right now, I need 6 more people to sign up
