Hey guys, it's that time of year again: fantasy football time! The league has automatically renewed, and all players from last year are joined. Please post here on if you plan to play again, or if you're dropping out. For anyone interested in joining, I'll start a waitlist here based on the order you post in this thread. If any spots open up, we'll go down the list. All the details of the league are below for anyone needing a refresher. I just copied it from last year's thread. I hope to see everyone again this year!
I know we have at least two spots that will be open, as Reed won't be returning, and we had another team that was pretty much abandoned for the second half of the year. Maddawg's account is inactive, but I'll give him a chance to get back in if he wants, otherwise we'll have at least three spots open.
Everyone playing, please post on your preferred draft days and times, and I'll do my best to do something that works for as many people as possible. It's usually impossible to accommodate absolutely everyone, but this league is legendary for the lengths people will go to to make the draft. Drafting from funerals, while driving, on boats, you name it.
It's that time again for the elite Fantasy Football players of Gametz to come together and compete in the premier Fantasy Football league of Gametz.

I've bolded everyone who has said they're in so far, and sent messages to anyone that hasn't responded to the thread yet. We have at least two spots open, so if anyone is interested, let me know! What do you guys think of doing the draft Saturday, September 3rd? That puts us right before the start of the season.
We have eight at the moment. Any of you guys know someone else on here that would want to join? I'd like to get the final owner roster set within a week, then get the draft scheduled. I'll try to do some recruiting this weekend.
Scots has joined, giving us our 12. Took a bit, but we made it. Let's turn our attention to drafting now. What do you guys think of Wednesday, September 6? That's the day before the first game with the Pats and Chiefs, so we won't have to worry about any preseason injuries derailing anyone's teams. I'm not sure what time zone everyone is in, but I'm thinking maybe 9:30 is a good time that could work for everyone. What does everyone think? Let me know if that works or doesn't work.
Just wondering if doing it in a week would work too? August 29th or 27th or 28th would work great for me too. I would still be where Im at right now. Not sure if you guys would want to do that. But Im still down for the 5th.
From what I've heard, it looks like September 5th at 8 p.m. would work. Scots, does that give you enough time to get where you need to be at 10? And Mikeywhoa, does that work for you? If I don't hear any objections, I'll set it up tonight for then.
I haven't heard an objection so I set the time to Tuesday September 5 at 7 p.m. Eastern. Last step is just to get everyone in the league- looks like we need four people to sign up. If you guys could check if you're in and sign up using the link above if you're not, we'll be all set. Anyone that was in last year should be in, we just need the new guys- probably @Scots and @Cliffsteele and @InfiniteJest, and @Mikeywhoa
I'm dumb. 8 Eastern, I meant. Although looking now, they don't have that available for some reason. So I went with 7:45, which was the closest they had. I'll also put a link here and in the OP. Could have sworn that was there.
Hey guys, it looks like we might need one more player to fill the league. MikeyWhoa froze his account, so I think he is probably not doing it. I'll be able to get a guy last minute if need be but I wanted to post here first to see if anyone else wanted to join.
Unfortunately Yahoo doesn't do it until 15 minutes before the draft. I think we could do it ourselves and then input a custom order, but I've got an insane day of work that won't see me home until within an hour of the draft anyway, so I don't think I could find a spot to do that. I'm looking forward to tonight, though!
I'm going to try and do my annual write-up late tonight- I actually did the draft from a FedEx truck last night and today isn't looking a whole lot better. Definitely seemed like a solid draft, but I haven't checked out everyone's teams just yet.
