CoT Fantasy Football, Season 5

I know it's a while off the new season yet, but Yahoo have made it possible to start leagues already. Just gauging interest here first.

You in?

Hell yeah, hopefully this time I won't get last pick again.

i might be in, provided there is no talk of the commissioner making unsolicited roster changes.

League name needs updating.

When's the draft? Addendum: August 17.

Are we keeping the same settings as before?

Funston has Moss & Brady in the top ten... I'd never pick a WR or a QB over a running back though unless I got a shitty order in the draft.

Are you signed into your Yahoo! ID, and is there a place to enter "cot" as the league password?

I'm tempted, but I have no idea how these things work, and honestly I don't know if I have the time.

It doesn't take too much time at all. Just check the injury report the night before a game and occasionally pay attention to who was put on waivers and such by the other managers. Of course, if you really get into it then you can spend a ton of time on research and micromanaging your team, analyzing match-ups, etc.

Some members in the past have put in no time at all. Which is to say they put in the effort to join the league and after that they let Yahoo automatically pick their team and first week's lineup. And then they just let it ride the entire season. This is not the optimal strategy, though it does require next to no effort.

For a beginner, I'd recommend this alternate strategy. Go ahead and let Yahoo pick your team for you. Then once a week, log in to see if any of your guys are not playing (hurt or on a bye) and if they are switch em out for someone else on your team at the same position who is playing. That's all there is to it. This process takes maybe two minutes per week, and increases your success much more than if you use the "strategy" in the first paragraph. If you are feeling more comfortable with it, you can venture into the world of roster changes. Drop guys who are injured or not performing, and get new guys to fill their spots.

Now we are six. Need four more to make league viable. Anyone tempted to join up? Just under two weeks until the draft. I saw Zsinj on Live and asked him to consider it.

Just drafted in my work colleagues Fox league, got ninth pick of twelve:
A Bridge Too Favre
Rd (Pick) Player
1 (9) C. Portis (RB-Was)
2 (16) M. Barber (RB-Dal)
3 (33) B. Marshall (WR-Den)
4 (40) M. Colston (WR-NO)
5 (57) H. Miller (TE-Pit)
6 (64) E. Manning (QB-NYG)
7 (81) Chicago (DST-Chi)
8 (88) C. Chambers (WR-SD)
9 (105) J. Delhomme (QB-Car)
10 (112) R. Johnson (RB-Cin)
11 (129) S. Gostkowski (PK-NE)
12 (136) C. Brown (RB-Hou)
13 (153) R. Brown (WR-Phi)


Did ok, but the default Fox rankings were crazy. Brady was ranked second & Moss was ranked third.
