    Fantasy Football League Specific

    This is what I'm currently planning to go with, provide input if you would prefer differently:

    Auction style draft
    Head to Head
    Point Scoring Default


    Weekly Starting Positions:
    2 QB
    2 RB
    4 WR
    2 TE
    2 Team Defense
    1 K

    4 Bench Spots

    This is different than many leagues that only include 1QB/2RB/1TE/1Defense/1K and 3 WR. However, with fewer teams, it is better with more positions per team.
    We can also include individual player picking for defense. IE: I pick Ray Lewis, and get points accordingly, etc.

    I've had a few people ask me how Auction Style drafting works. Basically, let's say we start with $250 (auction money not real $).

    Let's say I have 1st spot selection, Killdozer 2nd, and Kbot last (just like standard draft).
    Rather than standard draft where I'd simply pick Chris Johnson, in an auction draft I simply nominate a player for us to bid on.

    IE. I nominate Brett Favre. Since I nominated him I automatically have $1 placed on him. As soon as someone bids anything, I'm off the hook. We then bid back and forth until (x) number of seconds pass with no bids (I think x=5). Let's say I feel that Brett Favre will get me 1,000,000 points this year. I'd feel all I have to do is get him to win. I might bid $233 on Brett Favre. I'd still have $17 for the other position spots on my team (it forces you to retain $1 for every roster spot still available on your team). So, I can nominate players I don't want or want; only thing is, if no one bids higher than $1, you are stuck with the player you nominated.

    Auction style is MUCH MORE skill based, as it isn't simply "oh it's my pick? Who does Yahoo say is the best pick? Oh, Chris Johnson, thanks yahoo." In Auction Style Draft it is all about perceiving how good a player will be and what he is worth. In Auction Style you are fully capable of getting any player you want. For example, I am friends with 1 starting QB in the NFL. You can bet I am going to have him on my team.

    If you overbid too much early on, you will be kept out of the bidding in the later stages of the draft.

    You are also capable of simply logging in on Yahoo and doing a mock auction draft to get a feel for it. I do suggest you spend 3-5 minutes in one to get the hang of it. If you have any further questions, feel free to post here or PM me.

    Draft is Monday Night at 8:15

    I went with:
    2QB
    2RB
    3WR
    1TE
    2 WR/TE (either a WR or TE)
    1K
    1 Team Defense
    2 Defensive Players (individual players)
    6 Bench

    Also changed points to provide bonuses:
    300 passing yards=2 point bonus
    100 rushing yards=2 point bonus
    100 receiving yards=2 point bonus

    This can be altered if desired.

    Thanks for setting it up, I like what you ended up choosing.

    However, Since we do have some new players I might suggest going without the individual defensive players. Even I have no clue what I would do with that...
    Good lord are there no good games to play?

    So far Bodyshot and Killdozer have signed up (and my brother) where are the rest of u assholes haha.

    As far as the individual players, I was really hoping to try it out : / I'm not sure who I'd want to go with myself.

    Anyone else against it?
