I have an invite out to Cliff and Surak, but they haven't created a team, yet.
If you aren't on this list (and want to be), you need to email joshmarotti_at_yahoo.com ASAP. Once we get draft order and stuff out, the league will be shut.
OK, now for some decisions. If we want conferences, we need to get the "Yahoo PLUS" league, which costs $125.00 total. It would give us conferences, a java applet that gives out live updates during the game, and other wizbangs (including a plaque for the winner). That'd mean we would each chip in some cash to get it, and any extra cash would go into a pool to be give out to the winner/2ndplace/most points/whatever. I'm not big on dishing out cash for a FFL (I always lose when I do), but it isn't a ton of cash and it'd improve the league. Up to you guys.
Second is lineup:
Right now I have it as 1QB, 2RB, 2WR, 1TE, 1K, 2DL (including LB), 2DB, and 1 (overall defensive player, like another db, or another dl or whatever). It has been suggested to make it 1RB, 1WR, and 2RB/WR (you can chose 1RB and 3 WR, or 1WR 3RB, or whatever). This would help minimize the bench. The bench, as I have it, allows for 1 extra player at each position, which is a lot of benchers (but we need an extra player for every position for bye weeks). Any suggestions on reorganization is needed.
I'm not gonna write up how I have it setup (except for the most negotionable ones), so go to the league overview page and there shoudl be a link to league settings or something like that.
QB - 1pt for every 25 yards thrown.
6pts for every td thrown.
WR - 1pt for every 15 yards reception
RB - 1pt for every 10 yards rushing.
Now the yards per point is always the hardest to determine, and the second hardest is whether the QB gets 6pts per TD or 3pts.
Personally, I've used the 10yards per point across the board, and QB and WR are waaay more powerful than RBs. Through a few years, this appears to be the best formula, though pushing throwing yards to 20yards/point, or even lower, may be a good idea.
