Season 9! It's back!

Frey Meat Pie Won their 1st Championship last year! Congrats!


The remaining prior owners get their spot back if still interested. All other will go on a waiting list. Last years owners should email, post, or pm me to confirm their interest in this years league.

Link to last year's thread:

http://forum.dvdtalk.com/sports-talk...ll-league.html

We had another great season and I'm looking forward to year 9 of the Legends League and for the first year we will be converting this to a keeper league! We can start to discuss if we want to make any changes to the format or rule changes. Once again, no games will be played in week 17 to avoid players sitting out

Entry fee stays at $30 via paypal to avidsd at gmail dot com (insert at symbol and dot of course).

Please do not mention Fantasy Football in your payment. Just get creative in your description and include your ESPN TEAM NAME name so I know what team you are.

e.g. Thanks for the new Barkley Bruisers CD, it rocks!

Payment Deadline is Friday August 4th (2 weeks from now). If I do not have your payment by that date we will open your spot so we can still fill the league in time.

Draft Type: Snake
Draft Date: Sunday, August 20, 2017 at 3:00 PM ET
Seconds Per Pick: 60

We can always change that if need be based on feedback I get from others. Sunday is always a good day for a draft as many of our owners have the day off. The All Star draft is the 27th already and the last Sunday before the regular season is the Labor Day weekend so at this point it looks like just after week 2 of preseason unless we can agree to a better date.

If you were not in the league last year but want to join, post in this thread and I'll add you to the waiting list.

I'm looking forward to another fun and exciting year!

Prize Structure

1st- $200
2nd- $100
3rd- $30



Toilet Bowl Winner (7th Place)

Re: 2017 Legends Keeper Fantasy Football League

Let the discussion begin regarding how many keepers etc.. I've posted keeper rules from ESPN below:


In a keeper league you are allowed to retain as few players or as many players as the league manager selects, from the previous season, to remain on your roster for the upcoming season
When creating your League Manager league, simply select keepers in the settings
In a Keeper League, the draft will vary based on how many players you're allowed to keep for the upcoming season, assigning one draft round for each keeper
If your league has three keepers, there will be three keeper rounds
Keepers will always be the first rounds of the draft
For a new team, that owner would receive a pick in each of those three rounds choosing any players they want from those that are still available

Re: 2017 Legends Keeper Fantasy Football League

I would say between 2-4 keepers. Any more is getting into a dynasty format.

Agreed. I would say 2-3 is the perfect number. Maybe we start with 2 and then adjust if needed?

Re: 2017 Legends Keeper Fantasy Football League

Draft note and discussion pulled from OP:

Sunday is always a good day for a draft as many of our owners have the day off. The All Star draft is the 27th already and the last Sunday before the regular season is the Labor Day weekend so at this point it looks like just after week 2 of preseason (August 20th) unless we can agree to a better date.

Thoughts?


Also- as noted in the 2016 thread Michael Thornton who was a co-worker of mine and was a replacement for someone else no longer works with me. My brother Mike S. volunteered to take his place so as of now we are good at 12 owners unless someone else forfeits their spot.

Re: 2017 Legends Keeper Fantasy Football League

Entry Fee sent. Also 2 keepers to start sounds good to me.

Re: 2017 Legends Keeper Fantasy Football League

I'm thinking three, but two would be ok too. Are you then allowed to keep them for as many years as you want? My other league had FIVE keepers, but you could only keep a player for a second year before he went back into the draft pool.

I'm open to discussion. Let's figure this out. 2 or 3 guys?? I think ESPN lets you keep a player as long as you want but we could create own rules as well and I could always adjust manually. Thoughts ?

Re: 2017 Legends Keeper Fantasy Football League

I think we should be able to keep a player as long as we want.

Re: 2017 Legends Keeper Fantasy Football League

I decided to create a FB group for those interested. Figured this would be a good way to connect with the league outside of the forum since we do add non-DVDtalk members from year to year.


I understand that not everyone has FB but thought I would give it a try. If interested you can do a FB search for Legends Fantasy Football League or PM me and I'll send you the link.

I have an opening in the All-Star League. It's a standard scoring non-keeper league though...
