Would any Rising Sun members be interested in joining a Fantasy Football league?

I run one and I'm in another, so I wouldn't mind setting up one more. I would use ESPN (free version) and we could do a live online draft. Play for free this year and if we can get enough local RS members who enjoy it, we could try a live draft next year after a meeting? Free this year, just a cheapie next year.... $20 or so? Or, keeping it free and fun is good too. Play for the Rising Sun Trophy.

I'd like to get 12 teams. Live draft via ESPN online sometime before the start of the season. Details to follow if we get 12. Copy/add/paste your name below if you're in, and I'll set up the league and PM for email.

Only 2 of us so far. I thought we'd fill up fast. 10 more needed. You can set up to "auto draft" and the computer will pick your players for you.

I'd do it just to school Wes. :guapo:

I said it in 2010, and I'll say it again!

8 more..... we could play with 10 but 12 is perfect. The season starts on the 5th so the latest we could draft would be the night of the 4th (Tuesday)

Who else wants in?

Alright I'll do it if we're hurtin' for numbers.. it auto drafts if you don't know anything, right? My football knowledge is about a decade behind...

Tim, you're in. You will want to check your roster during the season too, just to make sure you're starting players that are actually playing. Since you're 10 years behind I feel obligated to tell you that Clinton Portis is no longer carrying the rock and kickers go really early, you should draft accordingly. ;)

It's not looking good. We're still 7 short. Maybe next year? :offtobed:

I'm not throwing in the towel just yet, but it looks like we're short. We can open it up to any forum members, not just RS members with the caveat that next year RS members have first dibs at the available spots. Anyone?

So... no league? :(

Fishy

Couldn't get 12 people who were interested. I'm surprised. I'll try again next year.

We can do an 8 team league in Yahoo or ESPN....can set it up then fill the remaining teams with other people we know...

Fishy

I can set a ESPN league up right now. We'd have to autodraft today before 6pm? Just for fun?

Fishy

All,

I set up a league on ESPN with the hopes of just letting it autodraft for us tonight before the 6:30 game. The league is called

Rising Sun Fantasy Football

If you PM me your email, I'll send you an invite to join. PM'ing you all right now. If we miss tonights deadline, we'll just play with the idea that if you draft any Giants/Cowboys you wont get points for them in week 1. If that's the case, we can try for a 12 team league and draft anytime before Sunday. If you know someone else who would play, just send me their email and I'll get them joined. I have a few friends that will play just to fill a spot.

Disregard everything I just said.

Go here...
http://games.espn.go.com/ffl/welcome
click on "JOIN A LEAGUE"

League name is:
Rising Sun 4x4 Fantasy Football
It's a PUBLIC league so anyone can join.

We'll shoot for 12 teams. Invite a friend if you want but we want as many RS members as we can get. The draft is set for Sat Sept 8th at 8PM. Be aware that if you draft any Giants/Cowboys you wont be able to use them week 1. You don't have to log on for the draft, the computer will autodraft for you if you're not online.

I'll put something on MUD if we can't get enough local teams (I think we can)

Signed up, thanks for doing this. Just curious how the points will be handled since we already had a game. Been looking for a league but all my old ones folded in the last two years and the others were all full. Hope this one fills up.

We don't have much of a choice but to say if you select any Giant/Dallas players during the draft, you'll need to wait until week 2 to start them. They will be "frozen" by ESPN and you'd get 0 poins from them in week one.

If you draft Demarco Murray or Tony Romo as your #1 RB or QB, just make sure you draft someone else who you can fill in week 1 with, cause you wont be able to use them.

I thought we'd have 12 players long before the season started and we never got them. I'm gonna open it up to MUD members tomorrow just to fill our 12, or I have plenty of non wheeling buddies who will play.

Edit again......
Because we're starting after the season has already kicked off, I had to once again create a new private ESPN CUSTOM league. I'll need to send you an email invite through ESPN. Nakman, I already have your email, invite on it's way. Everyone else, PM me with your email address and I'll send the invite.

Yup.... gonna try a week 2 start. Still gotta get those spots filled.

Fantasy Football is BACK!

Let's try this again..... it was a tough go to get enough folks involved last year.

Rising Sun 4x4 Fantasy League is up and running. Please let me know if you'd like to be in. We'll use ESPN again, a live online draft. Free again, but maybe next year I'll come up with something better and see about a prize(s)

Who wants (back) in?

Jacket
08-27-2013, 03:33 PM
I'll do it again. But if we can't get 8 Rising Sun folks to participate it's probably not worth it. You did a good job filling in slots last year to get the league going, but it's not that fun beating up on people I don't really know.

I agree. I'm working on it. I'd like 12.....

Also, the league shows some of you joined, please add your name if you do still want to play. Nakman, I sent you an invite.

If you're new to the league this year, than send me your email and I'll send you an invite. Hoping to have the live draft via ESPN before Tuesday the 3rd.

Fishy
08-28-2013, 10:32 AM
Anyone? Is it just 3 of us?

I'll give it a day or two and I'll shut it down and try again next year maybe.

I did that already Ron. I heard crickets.
I'll give this one a day or two.
