    There will be plenty of space for a donkey's supporter mate, was thinking about running a keeper league alongside for any serious players as well

    I've not played NFL fantasy before but wouldn't mind giving it a crack. What kind of league do you guys play though?

    Jump in mate won't be for a few weeks/months but best to start drumming up interest early

    potential to do a keeper league but will likely be secondary to a standard league format, hopefully get enough interest to do a few leagues, typically will be a snake draft with a random draft slot generated on draft day

    I hope the existing sportal league sticks around - not only because I have dibs on ABrown and SuperCam - but because its the most competitive league ive been in and the only one thats still going after multiple seasons.

    Im super keen to run in that one again - and ill run in this new one if you need someone to fill a spare spot but I wont be broken hearted if it fills up and I dont get a team.

    yeh, you're absolutely right, and like you i'm also swayed because of my keepers Laughing Julio in the 2nd round, Robinson 7th, Eifert 11th & D.Johnson 14th? sign me right the hell up! Very Happy

    Sounds good mate.

    I'm actually going to the first home pore-seaoson game for the new LA team. Looking forward to that!

    Most of the boys who played last year mate were first year like myself and found ESPN to be pretty straightforward, if the interface isn't much different hen I'm easy, but reckon we go to a vote to see what format we use?

    Yo Welsh man when does this start? I have never played NFL Fantasy before so am a complete noob and would need to do some research and learn all the scoring structures etc. I always like to be relatively competitive in any League I enter...

    Not until September mate, Draft would be weekend before, plenty of draft literature around fella which is pretty useful, most of us were first year players last year and picked it up pretty easily! You will be fine lad

    looking nice and on to it there Welshy, good lad.

    Will be good with most of us 2nd year players now so have a bit more idea about tactics and strategy with the draft and week to week management. Will also be nice not to have owners removed if they reject certain trades Lol

    Keen... Need some websites etc to research and some pointers from you lot as it will be a first for me. Also, I've watched jack shit of the game in years so would be a noob as well but unlike Bren I don't care if I come last so long as I have a bit of fun while doing so!

    Up to you - my missus was a first timer last season and managed to navigate her way around the website to win the league, so its definitely an easy interface.

    Good lad, will add you to the list now! I will start adding draft tips and info via links for those who haven't played the game before. The 1 major tip in NFL fantasy is this, do not select a QB in round 1 even though they score the most points
