For me it defaulted to 16 team league. We find 10 with a top six works well. You definitely want captains off. Captains are stupid and pointless in draft. ET will advise the settings to choose for the fanatics ranked leagues.

    Agree with this

    If you claim a waiver you go to the bottom of the queue next week. That would be my strong preference

    Last year League Two was done and dusted in a couple of days. Everyone in it got on a Facebook message group so that hurried it along even though we had people in Australia, Europe and the US, we found some points where everyone was online and could get through a few rounds at a time. Would suggest the same (or WhatsApp or whatever) this year, although I have to leave most of my League Two buddies behind, such is the price of success.
    L2 had some good bantz last year, hoping to bring the fire to L1 with rhino.

    I would've thought it would be best to give the first waiver of each week to the bottom of the ladder, and work up the ladder. Would be a big impact early in the season, but evens it out in fairness later in the season.

    I completely agree with all this.

    The waiver will be "last pick to bottom" - choose your timing well!

    Great work!

    I'm tentatively going to be admin for L2 - for this season only, before bouncing back to L1 - so for those in that Div, will get it up and going as soon as we have the 10.

    Yours is the last spot left in league 2 - so it would be great if you are keen to play, but you sound a bit 50-50 about playing, so if you're not very keen I can try and encourage a new sign-up - Let me know

    This is true.
    The final is Round 24 (Cowboys bye)
    Preliminary finals are Rounds 22-23 are Warriors and Bulldogs byes

    There are some good Fantasy players in those teams that may help get you to the finals, but missing them could be crucial in the knock-out rounds...

    So final regular season round is round 24 for us, then finals for rounds 25 (Broncos), 26 (Rabbits), and GF in round 27 (Eels).

    Is that right?

    I will set up the league later today!

    Citizens of L2 - Is there a group chat from last season? Otherwise I can set one up a new one on Whatsapp - to remind ppl of their turn in the draft, then in-season bants.

    Plus updates from Welshys gun u12 league side, which is probably the best in Wales despite not having a single player named Davies or Jones

    We have one on FB messenger from last year, though Whatsapp is fine with me as well.

    The regular season is rounds 1-21 (3 byes, playing each opponent twice).
    Round 22 is: 3 vs 6, 4 vs 5
    Round 23 is: teams 1 & 2 vs the winners of Round 22 finals
    Round 24 is the Grand Final

    Rounds 25-27, relax and focus on your Classic fantasy team
