Alrighty, folks, I've gotten the league together, and things should start flowing here before too much longer. Unfortunately, Ted will not be able to be in the league due to other commitments (something about having a life or something), so those of you that are in will have to be happy with getting beaten down by Eric and myself rather than all three of the main writers here at DN. I'm sure you guys can cope.
The draft is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, 28 August at 11:00 AM Central time. By then, the pre-season should pretty much be concluded, we'll be able to accurately account for any injuries, and I should be well and truly set up in our new digs. The draft is going to be 16 rounds, active rosters are going to have nine spots (1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 K, 1 D/ST, and one "Flex" spot for another RB/WR/TE), with seven bench spots for your roster.
We'll be awarding six points for rushing/receiving touchdowns, four points for passing touchdowns, deducting two points for every interception thrown or fumble lost, one point for every 25 passing yards or every 10 yards rushing/receiving, and various points based on how many points defenses allow and things like that.
Based on the voting from last week's poll, this will be a 12-team league, which means that there are 10 readers that will be involved. Those readers are as follows:
(If your name isn't on the list, I apologize. . .those were the names I randomly picked out of the ones that expressed interest in last week's post.)
The invitations have been sent out to those individuals, and they should start joining the league at their earliest convenience.
Thanks to everybody for their interest in the league, congratulations to those that were selected, and apologies to those that didn't get in this year. Remember, you can set up your own league through CBSSports Fantasy Football Commissioner at a 50% discount off of the regular rate by hitting the link up at the very top of the post.
We'll have more later here, ladies and gentlemen. . .we've got a tropical depression/storm heading this way, so I think I'll be spending a lot of time indoors this afternoon. (Here's hoping that the power stays on.) Everyone else, continue enjoying your weekend!
