Hey Morgbug, does this one work like the Fantasy Baseball league?  I haven't played in a football league yet, but I can't do worse than I'm doing in the Baseball league, right?!  Let me know if you have space and need another participant.

As usual, I've got scoring changes to suggest.   :-*

That's it, I'm deleting the league.   ::)

Heh, just kidding.  Get the suggestions out sooner rather than later.

Different from Baseball in the sense that it is a head to head league, meaning each week you play against a different person and you have a weekly won-loss record.  Top 8 teams (of 12) make the playoffs. 

You score points based on yards (rushing/passing), TDs, FG, converts and an assortment of other points all add up to your weekly total.  You might win one week by scoring 35 points and lose the next when you score 85, it all depends on who you play in a given week and how many points their guys score on that team. 

As more questions if something isn't clear.  By all means, join up if you want to play, it's first come, first served.  We have an assortment of regulars, but always seem to have a space or two to spare.

I'll get them in real soon.  Some of the other leagues I've been in have done half a point per carry or catch, then a point for every 10 yards for RB's and WR's.

It puts more emphasis on overall production and less on getting lucky with TD's.  You get higher scores this way, but it's all relative.

I think it's worth a look and I'll throw a proposed set of numbers out soon.

I signed up, and let Marin know to do the same.  I'm not sure if her Dad will want to play again this year but I invited him.

Still waiting on Rob's whining suggestions.   ;)

I'm running a different league, and it looks about like this:

Passing Yards (50 yards per point; 1 point at 300 yards)
Passing Touchdowns (4)
Interceptions (-1)
Rushing Yards (10 yards per point; 1 point at 100 yards)
Rushing Touchdowns (6)
Reception Yards (10 yards per point; 1 point at 100 yards)
Reception Touchdowns (6)
Return Touchdowns (6)
2-Point Conversions (2)
Fumbles Lost (-1)
Offensive Fumble Return TD (6)
Field Goals 0-19 Yards (3)
Field Goals 20-29 Yards (3)
Field Goals 30-39 Yards (3)
Field Goals 40-49 Yards (4)
Field Goals 50+ Yards (5)
Field Goals Missed 0-19 Yards (-1)
Field Goals Missed 20-29 Yards (-1)
Field Goals Missed 30-39 Yards (-1)
Field Goals Missed 40-49 Yards (-1)
Field Goals Missed 50+ Yards (0)
Point After Attempt Made (1)
Sack (1)
Interception (1)
Fumble Recovery (1)
Touchdown (6)
Safety (2)
Block Kick (2)
Kickoff and Punt Return Touchdowns (6)
Points Allowed 0 points (6)
Points Allowed 1-6 points (3)
Points Allowed 7-13 points (1)
Points Allowed 14-20 points (0)
Points Allowed 21-27 points (0)
Points Allowed 28-34 points (0)
Points Allowed 35+ points (-1)



It's not all that different, but the idea is to deemphasize touchdowns and add a little emphasis on yards - which I like.  Touchdowns are still huge, but it's a little more balanced IMO. 

I've also played in leagues where you get something like 0.25 points per carry or catch, which really makes yards and carries and catches much more important....

Brent already made that crack, but thanks.

There's no whining associated with it, I just think it would be fun to expand the scoring and try something different than we do every year.
