Introducing the 2013 BGN Fantasy Football League powered by Yahoo! Sports


It's that time of year folks! The time when you and your buddies take to Yahoo! Fantasy Football and play for pride, cash or in some cases, a trophy. This year, I will be running the official "The League" for Bleeding Green Nation and I am looking for 12-16 of our mightiest members to join. Here is how the league will be set up:

The draft will be in a snake format and the picks will be chosen at random prior to the draft.

Positions: QB, WR, WR, WR, RB, RB, TE, W/T, W/R/T, K, DEF, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, IR

You will have six spots on the bench and one IR spot in case you have a guy that suffers a long injury. You will also have two FLEX spots, one will be only WR/TE and the other will be WR/RB/TE.

Playoffs (Yes, I am talking about playoffs): Weeks 14, 15, 16.

The top two seeds will get a first-round bye.

Here is the scoring system:
