Fantasy (American) Football Anyone? August 20, 2020 8:26 PM   Subscribe

Hey! It's that time of the year again! Assuming the season actually takes place, of course. Who's interested in some fantasy (American) football? I'll probably use Yahoo or ESPN and have a live draft, which honestly, is most of the fun. Let me know if you're interested and I'll shoot you a link when the league is set up. Thanks!

Sounds good, I’ll play. Yahoo preferred, but either is fine.

I will also join.

Great! Feel free to shake the trees for any in-laws or distant cousins that might want to join!

I’ll do it

Also interested. One of my usual leagues is taking this year off and the other one is considering it.

I'm in as well! Prefer Yahoo.

Me. I'm a Yahoo veteran, but I'll play anywhere.

Great! We need only a few more teams and we'll be in business!

Yahoo seems to be the preferred choice, so we'll go with that.

Count me in!

I'm interested. There's been a MeFi league running for a few years ( but no sign of it this year ), it might be worth looking up old posts and giving those users a nudge...

i’m in, and I’m happy to play on which ever platform.

I'm interested if there's still space, and either platform is fine by me.

We can take one more team!

I sent everyone an invite, so please let me know if you're unable to join. I would encourage you to look at the scoring criteria, which I've monkeyed with to reward big plays and solid kicking. Please let me know if you have any questions or comments.

Also, the live draft is scheduled for 7 PM Central on the 30th, so one week from today. I hope that you can make it!

Hi everyone, if you haven't yet, please confirm your team for this year's fantasy football.

If you need me to re-send the invite link, I'm more than happy to!

Was curious when we'd know draft order! Or does that happen right before the draft?
posted by Carillon at 2:36 PM on August 28

Typically Yahoo randomly picks the draft order about 30 minutes before draft time. You’ll be able to see it when you enter the draft room.

Thanks, I'm used to preselection I guess so wanted to check :)

aww, shit, guess I'm missing it this year
