Hey guys, me and a friend of mine are hosting a Fantasy Football League through NFL.com. I just wanted to invite the fine members of Bucs Nation to come and join. We've got nine spots left, so there is still plenty of room. I must warn you though, it's pretty competitive, defense oriented, and the scoring system, admittedly, is pretty convoluted, but it was still really fun last year.
The draft will be on Sunday, Jul 27, 2014 at 6:00 pm EDT, (it is no coincidence that this is also the first weekend of Bucs Training Camp). Yeah, I know that we're holding the draft kind of early, but we do so for a couple of reasons:
- We're college students, and this was one of the only times that we set it up.
- By doing it early, it adds a little parity through training-camp injuries, (for example, a guy last year, ended up with the sickest roster, but a couple of injuries kept him in second place).
I'm sure this sounds like it takes away from the league, but adds to the excitement, and forces the league to pay close attention to the waivers, and actually take part in the league, (we only had one non-active player last year).
OK, so here is how the rosters are set up-
Wide Receiver / Running Back:1
Running Back / Wide Receiver / Tight End:1
Being Bucs fans, we really value Defense, so that's why we go by individual defensive positions.
As I mentioned before, the scoring is kind of convoluted, due to a couple of things:
- Interceptions are worth -7.5 points (so Eli Manning = death in this league)
- A missed field goal within the 20 is worth -12 points (puts a value on kickers)
- Passing Touchdowns are only 4.5 points (this was a mistake, that will be changed to 6 points)
So I'd really like to get some guys from on here to join the league, as I'm really looking forward to it, and I'm confident that you all would make it even better. All I ask is that you please take it seriously, because no one wants to be in a league with 8 inactive players, that's just not fun. The name of the league is "Buc the Saints". I hope to see some of you all in there, and if you have any questions, just ask in the comments, and I will be happy to answer. It's going to be a fun season. GO BUCS!
