JediDefender Fantasy Football 2011

Yeah, I don't know either.  But Yahoo had it up, so I figured I'd put it in as well.  Emails went out to last year's managers.  Password is berry, league ID# is something.  That's not helpful but for whatever reason I can't get back into yahoo fantasy sports right now.  When I can I'll post the league ID number.

This should be interesting considering we might not even have an NFL season this year.

I'll probably take a pass this year unless you guys need me to make an even number or something.

Up to you sir.  Always like to invite back the regulars if possible. 

Assuming everyone else signs up that leaves one slot.  League ID# is 675.

If Dressel gives up drops out, we should invite Matt.

I brought this up last year and think it's worth repeating.  I think we should change the waiver system so it rewards teams at the bottom of the rankings vs. the quickest to react to injuries / hot performances on game day.

Keep FA players locked until Wed. AM.

Let teams place their waivers starting Tues. AM for FA players they want - the team in 12th place gets their first choice filled and it cycles through based upon the standings (11th place goes second, 10th gets third, and so on). 

It keeps the competition high and doesn't reward the folks with the fastest internet connection on game day.   

We practice this in another league and it works well.  It's actually the preferred method of acquiring FA players in most fantasy leagues.

Really?  What is your data source for accurate statistics on what is most common across fantasy leagues?  I call Shenanigans. 

Despite the data flaws, I agree with Rob that the first come/first served approach should be replaced.  I am okay with the suggestion of first pick-ups going to lowest standing team.  Or if there is an option for whoever last picked someone up moving to the back of the list, I like that even better.  We did that in one of my Yahoo leagues last year and it helped spread around the pick-ups.

My understanding is that this is exactly how it works now - and how we've been doing things for years.

Can I sign up twice?  I could use the better odds...  ;)
