For the last couple years we have had a fantasy football league here on the POTUS board.

It's getting to be that time again.
Is there any interest?
Can Franco have the entire Saints team?


Let me know..........

I suck at Fantasy Football but, that won't stop me. Just let me draft Brees, Graham, Sproiles, Thomas, Ingram, Colston and the new Saints' Defense!

It has been fun the last couple years.
Being won by a female last year I think.

I think Jake won it once as well.

I know I did NOT!!!:confused:

I too am horrible at rotissiserie leagues...I find it counterproductive to pull for someone to produce great stats in lieu of winning...will stick to handicapping, which by many accounts I am not real good at either

After watching rookie QB Jarret Lee light it up for the Chargers last night, going 15 of 22, 225 yards plus, it made me sick again that Les Miles had him sit on the bench for the entire NCAA Championship game!!!

Are you serious ?.....from Heisman Finalist to off the team, wonder where he will transfer to..?

wasn't he one of the guys that got suspended for using the synthetic type of weed last year

It will have to be a Div 2 school if he wants to play this season. I suspect he will opt for next year's NFL draft. He'll go from being a late first round pick to a 5th-7th round pick. If only he were a boozer instead, he wouldn't have gotten kicked off the team:(

From ESPN...
If you know anything about Mathieu's past, his dismissal might not come as much of a surprise. He was largely raised by his grandparents and later an uncle. His mother has battled drug addiction throughout her life, and his biological father has spent most of his adult life in prison. LSU afforded Mathieu an opportunity to outrun his past, but he failed to take advantage.

We have 12 signed up.
I am waiting for Whackandstack and DSO to sign to give us 14 teams.

How long do I wait?
Is 12 a better number?
Then everyone will have a pretty good team.

14 or 16 teams kind of dilutes the talent pool.

OK, we have 12 teams.
Please let me know when you want the draft.
This is the last week of real training.

Next week some time?
If you can not make the draft, you will be on auto-draft.

Let me know, we will set it up so it works across the time zones!

Thanks everyone!

I use that photo as my screen saver during the Summer and had no idea who that person was until I was informed that is was Tyler Perry.
I said, "who is Tyler Perry"? Then I received a lengthy education on Madea and his/her movies. Funny stuff!

The electronic draft for the POTUS FFL will be held on Monday, Sept. 3rd (Labor Day) @ 7:00 pm CST.

It will be a reverse snake format.
If you can't make it, the auto draft will pick the highest rated player for the position you have open.

I was joking when I asked when it was. I am only playing for BSing as I find it too difficult to pull for players on other teams. I may have to go with Peyton Manning if he is still available, as I have a feeling he will have a spectacular season. I expect him to strat slow and build momentum through the season as he and his WR's learn each others tendencies. I just don't know how players gain points. In real life, I would pick a QB first to build a team around but not sure if that is a good option with FF.

I wanted too but figure with FF that maybe a RB was the way to go with the first pick so I chose Lesean McCoy of Philly.

It was either McCoy or WR Megatron with the first pick.

I think when you missed your first pick it went to auto draft.
My buddy says you could have changed that, but I don't know how.

stan, care to explain the OPRK (Opponent Rank) category in regards to player stats? I wasn't able to figure that out last year. I just assumed it was how the player stacks up against that weeks opponent. red meaning bad, green meaning good. nto sure though. tia
