*Need Owners* Yahoo standard (mostly) league

1 post in this topic

I was going to run 2 leagues at work, but lot of the guys in a particular department have been replaced by women, not that I'm complaining. It's a Yahoo league with some tweaks. Added a flex spot (can be either WR, RB, or TE) so there's 10 starting spots and 6 bench spots. This also balances out the snake draft.

 

QB's INTs are -2, if it's a pick six, then -3 instead. Passing for 300+ yards gets +1

WRs, RBs, and TEs get +1 when they go over 100 yards in a game

For Ks, FGs 50 yards+ are 4 points, but missing an extra point is -1

D/ST get 1 point for a tackle for loss and 2 points for a 4th-down stop

 

Big plays are worth more. 40+yard runs or catches get +1, and if it's a TD then +2 instead.

Passes over 40 yards don't get a bonus unless it's a TD, then +1

 

Nothing CRAZY, but enough to spice up the matchups. I like competitive leagues, and this setup helps test the managerial skills of the 11 poor bastards dumb enough guys with the guts to join.

 

Since it's a first-year Huddle league and last minute, I'll make it a free league. We draft on Wednesday at 6pm. Anybody got the cajones? PM me for an invite.

    • Elbows too pointy. Would not bang.
    • On the surface this team seems greatly improved but in reality we added a geriatric at DE and SS. Our LT is bad enough that the Vikings thought getting Remmers in return was an upgrade, and our greatly improved offense includes a rookie RB who dominated the 5th best college conference and a hybrid RB/WR who isn't good enough to stick at either position. That being said, I'm hopeful it works out.
    • First, let me say that I pretty much only watch the NBA during the playoffs (or when I'm absolutely bored and channel surfing, which is very very seldom). I am really a fan of players and coaches and not necessarily teams except for the Spurs. That being said, I do support the Hornets as they are a North Carolina team---the "home" team, if you will.  The problem is I don't see any way that they will credibly compete for a championship (because they really haven't come close in franchise history). Gone are the days of Grand Ma Ma and Dell Curry, but even then one would be hard pressed to really believe. Unless they happen to draft a legitimate, and I mean legitimate, superstar that wants to be here, I can't see it. I go from year to year in June saying "Perhaps this is the year," but reality sets in during December.  Well, perhaps this is the year that they at least become credible. Monk was arguably the best pure shooter in the draft. Can he create his own shot---break 'em down and break some ankles to be a legitimate point guard or 2-guard? We will see. Bacon may be underrated. We will see. Does the other Superman in Charlotte have enough juice to make a credible run and get the Hornets over the hump. I don't know.  It's just hard to believe that the Hornets will actually become truly relevant when you look at their history, and that has to really suck as a hardcore fan.
