    100% you can join mate, would love to have ya aboard, the more the merrier! For the moment I will put your name down in an unallocated league and depending on returnees you'll either be in L3 or if we get enough the new L4.

    For the newcomers (like yourself) we run the competition each year with punters striving to reach the prestigious L1. Basically same idea as our NRL leagues. Promotion and relegation is based of top and bottom two teams in each year.

    Any questions feel free to pop em here in the thread mate and people will answer em for sure.

    Sweet as @FalconSloth! Get you in for sure. I'll sort out the lists tonight or tomorrow. Will be able to get L1 and L3 myself just getting someone to chase up L2 for me. Looking forward to a new season and getting things up and running!

    Will sort out commish for each league in the coming days. EGF has already put his hands up for L1 and handles our dynasty draft on Sleeper so I'll probably let him run that but I'll DM each person when we get things sorted.

    @Enchanted Gloss Flamingo, not 100% who you were mate but whack your name in. If anyone else can help fill in the unknowns that would be good.

    Welshy, Russ BroncHose and myself (and anyone else that doubled up in L3) will drop out of that league this year to make way for newcomers. Hoping that we can fill it out without double ups and potentially even get another league as well but we'll play that by ear.

    If anyone that has been tagged decides to opt out this year or we get no shows we can deal with that as it happens.

    Yep, Boydz 2 Men was me last year.

    Pretty sure at the end of the season L1 decided deuces would be going as he was inactive most of the season.

    What’s the sleeper platform? And how does the draft regulation/promotion work?

    @FalconSloth, Sleeper is another platform that runs NFL Fantasy leagues. Similar to NFL's own fantasy app, Yahoo, CBS etc but better in every way. Worth a download from your app store and having a play with, run some mock drafts etc as it's going to be the platform of choice this year.

    Draft is done through the sleeper app and is a standard snake draft. Promotion and relegation are decided based on the last years results with the top two from each league moving up to the next league and the bottom two moving down. You'll remain in L3 this year assuming that we have the numbers to fill it.

    Yeah, scrolled through the pages on the forum until I found last years NFL thread and saw that Deuces was AFK from the get go basically and also notice that he hasn't been on the forum itself in some time so we will need to decide how to deal with that. Do we think the 3rd placed player from L2 last year should get promoted or would we rather run a lottery for the vacated L1 spot?

    You got me right. What is with the platform move, I know we talked about it. Is there any big gains over the NFL App?

    Yeah 3rd place is better imo and it avoids the whole lack of promotion/relegation occuring as well. I think for two years I got away with staying in L1 because of it.

    Format for this year will be as follows...

    1. Redraft league
    2. One QB, 2 RB's, 2 WR's, 1 TE, 2 Flex, NO KICKERS and 1 DST
    3. Points scoring standard or PPR? Will take a consensus vote to determine
    4. Sleeper will be the platform of choice but will let the poll run it's course and a few more people vote
    5. FAAB of $100 for waivers if the majority is in agreeance

    Please feel free to drop your comments regarding standard vs PPR and waiver priority thoughts so that we can make a decision there guys.

    I will be sorting out the league lists today and will be asking for people to put their hand up for commish spots. @Enchanted Glossy Flamingo will run L1 and either @Welshy or myself will run L2, will be looking for someone to handle L3 if we can fill it. If we can't we may collapse to two twelve man leagues but I'm sure we'll get some more returnees over the next few days so should be fine.

      Current date/time is Sat Dec 05, 2020 1:34 am
