Fantasy Football

One of my (and many others’) favorite activities during football season.  What better feeling is there scooping up a sleeper in the late rounds, dominating one of your friends by 50 points or watching as you’re players break-out and go off only to leave your weekly opponent in tears after beating him by 2 points when all you had left is one guy on Monday night, project at 4 points??

 I LOVE fantasy football.  I love the smack-talk, the draft party, the heart-breaking losses and the immaculate come-from-behind victories.  Most of us play in several leagues, on several sites with multitudes of different settings every year.   I wanted to add to the “how do we kill time until the lockout ends, Kolb is traded and we sign Asomugha” chatter and get some feedback from my BGN friends.

 I started my league today.  Yup, that’s right, today.  I have my other 9 guys chomping at the bit for our first vote/poll of the season to determine the draft date.  But this isn’t about me, it’s about what everyone else is interested in, so I pose the following questions to you:

 

-          What site do you use / which site is the best?

-          Which format do you use?  Head to head?  PPR?  Dynasty?  Total Points?

-          Do you guys run keeper leagues?

-       How much do you charge for your league and how do you breakdown the payouts (70-20-10??)??

-          Do you have a particular draft strategy? (RB, QB, WR or QB, WR, WR, RB)

-          What type of draft do you do?  Live?  Snake? Autopick (God forbid)?

-          If you do a live draft, how do you make it work?

-          Any draft day rituals or good luck charms?

-          Any particular player you HAVE to take every year? 

 

Basically I just wanted to start a little discussion about Fantasy Football and how we all go about our leagues and whatnot. 

 Personally, this is the first year I’ll be holding a “live draft” at my place.  To me this entails a lot of work, but it seems like it’s going to end up being the best draft yet.  I have some ideas in my head I’ve been tossing around and I’d like to get some feedback once the discussion gets going, so have at it!
