Matt this is my first time playing fantasy football as well It should be pretty easy to pick up and it should be fun. I hear the guys at work talking about it all the time. They seem to have fun at it.

Touche, Matt.

Gruden just this morning said that if T. Bay won the big one again this year, he'd dance on a busy Tampa highway in nothing but a jockstrap. Bad visual, good for a laugh though.

After giving it some thought, I may just join. Question is, it is legal for some of us to be using the same players, and are we going to avoid roster stacking?

I'm not saying I am going to just take the entire Bucs starting offense per se, but like B.J at QB, Vicious at TE, and Alstott at FB, with Todd Steussie, Matt Birk, etc to fill out the rest?

Every team will have different players.  One specific player cannot be on different teams.  Is that what you were asking about Cory?

Touche, Matt.

 ;)

So Chris, are we drafting our own players, or is there an automatic draft?  I think I heard that's what was happening earlier on in here.  But like I said, how much brainwork and time's gonna be involved?  Will I really have to be adjusting my roster every week, and all that, 'cause I just don't know if I'm going to have the time to be doing all that this season...

Problem is, when I do something (like this), I go totally all-out agro...  I get way too much into it, and it just becomes one more thing that I wind up spending way too much time stressing over - like making sure I've got the perfect roster every weekend, researching all the players stats, etc., etc...  So that's pretty much the reason I've always avoided stuff like this.  I've got a lot of friends who play it and love it, but they must spend like 20 hours a week doing stuff regarding it...

I dunno...  When's the deadline to join?

Well, you will be pretty much involved in it, but it's not like you're going to spend hours & hours setting it up every week.  I think you should join.

The draft will be automated, and will happen sometime just before the start of the season (mid-August).  All you have to do is pre-rank your players for the draft.  Actually, Yahoo and KFFL have already pre-ranked players for you.  If you want to do any changes to the pre-rankings you may do so.

Any other questions... just let me know.   8)

Come on Matt (and Brent) easy as pie and fun to do, plus you can join in on the smack talk

OK, my dillema

I have the #3 pick in my draft which is Saturday (don't ask...I'm pissed it is this early)

I am expecting to have a choice between

Tomlinson
Williams
Holmes
Faulk
Portis

I think Tomlinson and Williams will go #1 and #2 leaving me a choice between Faulk, Holmes and Portis...I'm leaning Portis but don't want to pass on Holmes, what to do, what to do....

I'll be talking smack regardless...  You know that!   ;D   :-*

I suppose if there's already some pre-ranking set up, and I don't have to use my brain at all, I'd do it.  I'm just usually too busy or lazy come weekends to want to deal with analyzing and messing with my roster.  So the less brain power and involvement, the better chance I'll hop in on the action...

We had our draft last weekend...first round went like this

#1 Tomlinson
#2 Williams
#3 Portis
#4 Faulk
#5 Owens (???)
#6 Holmes
#7 McAllister
#8 Alexander

Pretty RB heavy, I took Portis but then shipped him to the owner of Holmes for the 3rd pick in round #2 and a fourth rounder, I also gave up the #6 pick in Round #2 and a 6th rounder.  I took Culpepper in Round #2...the rest of my line-up

QB: Culpepper
RB: Holmes
RB: George
WR: Horn
WR: Price
TE: Sharpe
K: Elam
D: Atlanta or NE

SO I am pretty happy right now, if Holmes is healthy, I have a good chance to take it all baby! :-*

Not exactly sure when the draft would be.  Once I set the Auto Draft feature to go live, then everyone needs to put their teams on "ready."  Once that is done a date will generate when the draft will commence.

Is everyone here ready?  Do we want to get a couple more people to join?  LMK.
