DVDTalk Fantasy League #3

Okay...since the other two are full...i've created a 3rd league on Yahoo. can be fun or pay, however you guys want.

League ID: 546949
Password: Otter
Draft is set for Saturday Sept. 1 at 5:30pm (pickings were pretty slim)

Standard lineup - QB, WR, WR, WR, RB, RB, TE, W/R, K, Def

Main scoring differences are PPR (1 point per reception) and 5 point bonuses for 300 yards passing, 150 rush/receive, and 1 point per 25 return yards. With a big league this opens up little used WRs who also return kicks - or Devon Hester types.

Ok, I'm in. At this point I'd prefer it be a free league.

Wow, WRs are very valuable in this league. You should probably compensate by making receiving yards worth 20/1 instead of 10/1.

I'm in, pay or free is fine with me so long as it stays in that $10-$20 range.

It certainly will. Under these rules, Marvin Harrison would have scored 303 points. LJ 322. I won't run out the math, you get the idea, several WRs would have outscored several top RBs.

I just wanted to people to know before the draft. I'm all for alternative scoring leagues. I played in a league that gave points for almost everything BUT touchdowns (they were 1 point). In fact, like everything was 1 point in that league, it was pretty interesting.

you can always prerank players.

and yes, PPR is an entirely different animal. possession receivers become much more valuable, and backs like REggie Bush and Westbrook become more valuable than guys like Larry Johnson

and i've never done the return yards, but thought that would add an additional wrinkle. someone like Jones-Drew could be top ten in this league if he returns punts again this year.

Ok, found it. I was capitalizing Otter, when lower case is the ticket

I'm in---Deadpool

I won't make the draft, but I did select who I don't want the computer to pick for me...like Vick and various other people I feel are bums

I guess the Yahoo default is for passing TDs to only be 4 points. Is that new this year? If so, ugh.

I can do Thursday night, I'd appreciate as late as we can though. I'm on Mountain Time, so it's 2 hours behing Eastern. If possible, anything past 8 Eastern would be good for me, I can hang out longer at work if more people need it to be earlier.
