Sabrespace Fantasy Football League is now full.

Good luck this year boys.  We can use this thread or league board for some trash talking!

Don't forget the draft is Thurs Aug. 28 at 10:30 pm.  If you can't make it don't forget to set your pre-rankings.

Any chance the draft date can be altered? I'd like to join but have another draft at the exact same time.

The problem is it's the long weekend afterwards so it would have to be extended to Tuesday (two days before season starts).  What's everyone's thoughts on having it that night (September 2) at 9pm?  If some can't we will have to leave it as is.

Another alternative could be this Sun night at 9.

I'm running an ESPN fantasy league, our draft is that night. Although, I like having it after the weekend that way nobody drafts somebody that might get hurt the last preseason game.

The injury issue is why I wait until after the third game.  I find so few players even play in the last game that there is such a low risk.

I figured it would be difficult finding a time that works for everyone so I think maybe we just leave it as is?

Edit - I'm with Glass, come on Trueblue, what are you doing man haha

Edit Edit - Not sure what time ppl start work in the morning, I could push the time back to 1030?

Don't let me keep you from changing it if you think that time is better. I'm sure my spot could be filled.

If it can be pushed to 10:30 I should be able to make it. My other draft is at 8 and it's only a 10 team league.

In general my availability is as follows: Saturday after 7
Sunday after 8
Monday after 9
Tuesday unavailable
Wednesday after 9
Thursday after 10:30
Friday anytime
Saturday after 7
Sunday anytime

The week after I'm only available late Mon-Wed (like 11pm). Like JJ, if it doesn't work it's fine, I don't want to inconvenience 9 other people.

No it's alright.  How does everyone feel about 1030 that night though?  The online drafts usually take about an hour.  I'm assuming your draft is online TrueBlue?

Looks like 1030 works for Blue.  How's that work for the others already in the league Dennis, Ink, JuJu, Glass, Labatt and JJ?

Any time after 630 is fine by me.  The Fiance works 6p through the night so once she leaves, I'm good to go.

With the hours I work, it's tough for me to ever win these leagues and hopefully I can make it to draft time... But consider me in as the dark horse!!

So I joined, I think I'm in the right one.... Is there a "Peyton team" and a "yo mama"

Also how do I set my rankings just in case I miss it? I haven't done one through NFL before

No there's no Peyton team or yo mama team.

Get out of that league and try the link again.  I have added two more teams so it should work now.  Let me know when you're in.

When you get in click on the tab League near the top.  It will take you to the leagues home page with standings etc.  From there there is a section under league notes which says Edit Pre-Draft Rankings.  Just click on that and go.

Ok glad you are in.  We've now got 11 of 12.  Room for one more.

I'm going to cap the league at 12 because I find any larger and the talent really starts to dilute and it becomes too much research for the average person.

Therefore, if you want in, better sign up now.

The league I ran last year had 16. Man, there was nobody left to pick from, the waiver wire was pretty much useless.
