    Remember all.....we need an even number. Let's have fun with this and bring in some other folks. Maybe a former player, maybe a new one.

    Should be like last year.

    The major change from last year is instead of individual def players, right now there are none, but there are two team DEF per team. I'm not inflexible here.

    Also, two RB and two WR per starting lineup. No flex spots. Just see if we can make it interesting.

    I would rather have a flex spot on offense than choose a 2nd DEF slot. Picking defenses is too random for my taste. For example, 2 years ago, the Ravens were the consensus #1 defense in fantasy, but they were actually something like the 23rd best defense.

    That happens. You have QBs come out of nowhere to be in the top 5, and you have stellar RBs have clunkers. Team DEF is a bit of a copout to me, but that's one of the top complaints I get every year. That said, I'm not without flexibility to add back in an IDP slot and remove a team D. Last year, doing some casual ob research (sounds a bit oxymornic, doesn't it?) I saw that no one was using flex spots for WRs. Whenever possible, a RB was in place. Hence, the addition. Depending on how many teams register, we may see some tweaking.

    Yes...please join in. I stopped playing fantasy football 3-4 years ago when I was only joining randomly assigned teams. Unfortunately that meant that I had to deal with all the profanity talkers each week, which wasn't much fun.

    Anyway, I'm looking forward to this league...

    We've got an odd # of teams (7) and we can't play with an odd #. Come on, you know you want to join :).

    We did have a late entry. Well, we do need one more. Someone please scrounge up one. I'd hate to have to punt the odd man out, but we need to do something to get an eighth team in.
