Hey guys. I know that the NFL Draft ended not too long ago and that there's still a lot of things that need to be done before the season begins, but fantasy football is back. I want to make a league (separate from David's league). The difference is that the one I want to do is an auction league (which I'll explain a little later). If anyone wants to join, let me know. I would like at least eight people who want to participate before making the league.

Possible Questions

Q - What is an Auction League?

A - An auction league is a fantasy league in which fantasy owners place "bids" on players, and the highest bidder gets the player. You bid on players until you fill your roster (once that happens you can no longer bid).

Q - How much can one bid?

A - You can bid as much as you want, as long as it doesn't exceed the maximum bid possible. Also, you only have a $200 budget, so being smart with your money is important. And in case anyone is wondering, the $200 isn't a real $200, so you don't spend actual money on the players.

Q - What do the rosters look like?

A - Right now, my plan is to make the roster positions as follows: QB(x1), RB(x2), WR(x3), TE(x1), W/R/T(x1), K(x1), DEF(x1), BN (x6). If anyone has any suggestions to improve it, please let me know.

Q - How do I join?

A - Once I get enough people that want to join, I'll go ahead and create the league. In order for you to join, you would need a Yahoo account, and I would have to send you an invite to the league via email.

Q - Is there an entry fee?

A - As of right now, there is no entry fee. I don't plan on adding one, but if for whatever reason I need to or feel that I should, then I will.

Q - Are there any prizes?

A - I haven't come up with an official list of prizes, but I do plan on giving Viz prizes to the top 5 fantasy owners. as of right now, it would look like this:

1st Place: 50000 Viz
2nd Place: 25000 Viz
3rd Place: 10000 Viz
4th Place: 5000 Viz
5th Place: 2500 Viz

Q - When would the draft be?

A - I plan on having the draft sometime in mid-late August (I would have to know the time of David's draft). I also want to find an optimal time for everyone (or a many participants as possible) to be available to draft, since auction drafts take significantly longer than standard drafts. As we get closer to the end of August, I'll reach an official decision.

That's it for now. If you're interested, let me know.

megamanmaniac : Thanks for letting me know. I might be interested in playing, but I don't like playing in Fantasy leagues that are less than 10 teams. Just isn't that exciting when everyone has amazing teams. 10-12 Players is the sweet spot. So put me down as "tentative" I guess. If there are less than 10 teams, I might back out.

Reason being, that I'm in a lot of competitive money leagues during the year and don't really have a whole lot of extra time for any more. If it was going to be a competitive league, I could be interested. I hope that you understand.

megamanmaniac : Sure, I would like to play if it's free. Can my Yahoo account do two leagues in case David invites me back to his league? My Yahoo is cookie4077 and I'll put the $200 for Aaron Rodgers right now...oh wait, I'll need some other players too...hehe

Jordanv78 : I'm the same way. I'd be very happy if I could get 12 guys that are as competitive as I am to participate. I'll add you to the list, but if you decide to back out, then that's fine with me.

kramer4077 : Yeah. If I'm correct, you can make up to eight fantasy teams with Yahoo, so unless you have seven teams aside from the one in David's league, there should be no problem with you being in both leagues. I'll add you to the list as well.

I suppose I might be interested in this. I can try to put effort into this, but we will have to see just how much I can. With this being just the 2nd year for the Pick Em League, and sign ups starting in about a month and some days, I'll have to start planning soon. Mix that with David's league, and Fantasy Baseball, which will be wrapping up at that time... that will be a lot on my plate. But yeah, I'm interested, at least for the time being.

thing1 :
Barathemos : I added you to the list.
Jimmyjamx22 : I believe you're the other team that signed up. I apologize if I'm wrong.

Alright. The league is set up, and we have 6 players so far. Optimally, I want that total to be doubled, so if you know someone who might be interested, feel free to summon them here.

Now for what I wanted to discuss. I set the roster positions and scoring settings. The roster is similar to the default rosters, but I added one flex position. The scoring system is similar to David's league. The only thing I changed (so far) is the points given for kick returning yards (25 yards=1 point). But I want this to be an interactive things, and I want to know what you guys think I can do to improve the scoring settings and rosters. So if you guys have any suggestions or comments that could help improve the league, please let me know as soon as possible.

Sorry for the long reply back. Haven't been on Vizzed much =P.

I'm actually interested in this. Wouldn't mind doing this plus David's 1 as well.

megamanmaniac : How many more do you need? And are you trying to keep it to just Vizzed people as the 2nd league that was talked about last year, or are you OK with expanding it to the outside world at all?

thing1 : I did want to keep it Vizzed only so that I could easily contact anyone need be. The other reason I wanted to keep it Vizzed only is because of the Viz prizes given out at the end.

As for the participants, once oldschool joins we'll have reached the minimum 8 that I wanted, but ideally I would like to have 12 people in the league. If no one else from Vizzed is interested as we get closer to draft day (which is currently set for August 29th but may be subject to change), then I can consider adding people that aren't from Vizzed.

megamanmaniac : Can we change the draft to the 28th. I work on the 29th, which is a Saturday, and even though I am on my laptop at work, which I am allowed to do, they recently increased the number of patrols required, so I don't think I would have time to do the entire draft.
