EZA Fantasy Football (NFL) 2018: Week 6 (10/9/18)

  • @peter Sorry if this is a dumb questions, but do we have to create an ESPN account before you invite us?

  • I'm in Ireland but any weekend times before like 6pm PST I can do

  • @Crepe i am going to message an invite link to everyone once I iron out all the details and rules in the league. Once I do that you will likely be prompted to create an account when you click the link to join. It obviously doesn’t hurt to create one before though. You will need an ESPN.com account at some point!

  • @peter Cool, thanks for letting me know dude.

  • @Peter I'm in for a 3rd year, let's go!

    Edit: Fuck, looks like I missed the cut off. Is there any room left? (Don't wanna cause an issue if there's odd numbers, but maybe if @PK_Rocket is still interested that brings the league back to 12)

  • No cutoff missed! You’re in! We needed a 12th!

    @PK_Rocket you are now officially in too!

  • Looking at the availability people are providing, it looks like Sunday Sept 2nd might be the best? Maybe around 7:00pm EST/4:00pm PST? Keep updating us on when you’re all available! If there is a better time or date for you let me know!

    Remember you can draft straight from the mobile app! If you have service and can look at your phone every few minutes to make a pick you should be able to draft without having to worry about the dreaded auto draft no matter where you are. I will try to make sure that there is like two minutes allowed for each pick, but I don’t remember how flexible ESPN is with it’s timer.

    Sunday 7pm EST/4 pm PST works for me.

  • I'm also good with that

  • @peter works for me :)

  • I can most likely make that work as well
    If not, I will let the gods pick for me

  • Sunday works for me as well!

  • Side note, are we doing standard or 1/2 pt PPR this season?

  • That time is good with me.

  • yea that's fine with me, could we get the draft order Saturday?

  • I'm real late to the party here, but if there is still a spot open I'd love to play again this year! Would be good to draft on Saturday or Sunday

  • Looks like most people are on board for Sunday and I am too but... any way we could make it just one hour later? I'll be getting off of work/driving home at the suggested time.

  • Hello everyone! The League is set up and I am going to send out a mass message with an invite link to everyone who has signed up so far! As of right now the draft is set for 7:00pm EST on Sunday September 2nd. I would not be opposed to moving it back to 8:15pm (that is the closest to 8 espn will allow for) if that works better for everyone since SabotageTheTruth has asked, but for the time being I have it set to what we already agreed on. Just let me know if moving the draft back about an hour and fifteen minutes is ok with everyone!

    @ablank2 you are not too late! The only issue is you would be an odd numbered player. We need an even number. I hate to be the cut off guy but right now I'm keeping you on the bench. If someone else would also like to sign up before Sunday's draft you're in!

    On that note if anyone out there is interested in playing we have exactly 1 more spot open! It's not too late!

  • Also the draft order will be randomized 1 hour before the draft starts! If you want to do a mock draft before our actual draft I would recommend doing a few from different positions!

    For those new to fantasy football the draft is a snake draft. It starts off 1-10, but then then next round goes 10-1, and then back to 1-10, and then 10-1, etc etc etc. It "snakes" around from beginning to end. I think most of the people playing this year have played in past years so you probably know already.

    also I think someone asked if this was a PPR league and I totally didn't answer. This is a standard scoring league. I adjusted a few things on defense to make it score more like a yahoo/nfl.com league, but otherwise it's pretty vanilla. For those curious ESPN by default has defenses lose points for giving up yards. I took that away because that's dumb. If a defense gives up yards but prevents the offense from scoring they shouldn't be penalized for that. As far as I'm aware ESPN is the only league which does that by default.

    If there are any more questions feel free to ask!

  • Due to losing 2 years in a row, the Transylvania Werehogs have been relocated to one of the smallest towns in America - Willow Canyon, Arizona, population 1. We're hoping that with a strong season here, we can put Willow Canyon on the map and potentially triple its population.
