Default 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

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

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

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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