NFL - OLBG - Fantasy League 2017/18

Postby Jim Brown » Sat Aug 12, 2017 1:47 pm

Here we go again! The ever-popular OLBG NFL Fantasy League is right around the corner :D

Who needs prize-money when you can have the bragging rights of being the OLBG Champion? :win:

With our illustrious NFL Fantasy king-pin Lazarus76 temporarily out of commission and on the road to recovery, I'll be overseeing the Fantasy League this time round. Two years ago we had an all-in-one three-league system of 10 teams each but it was (rightly) thought to be too tough because nothing was left on the waiver-wire in case of much-needed substitutes, so last year saw two separate leagues of 12, each with their own draft, which resulted in a better competition all round.

So the plan this year - The same setup, if we get the same people back, with 3 up and 3 down from last year's tables. If there's non-returners, I'll work out who gets to go where bearing in mind those three-up, three-down. Because we're getting close to the wire for the season-start, I'll go with last year's 24 getting first refusal, and if we run short of 24 from last year then it's opened up to reach 24 on a first-come, first-served basis.

So, the confirmed players thus far are;

From last season-

Lazarus (Dirty Birds)
Jim Brown (Ebook Eagles) [may do name change this season]
DannyCraig (DannyCraig Pirates)
Leachy2505 (Leachys Steelers)
KanKeano (KanKeano Bears)
titans choice (Titans Rule)
Undertherobe (UTR Jets)
The Mad Hatter (also team name)
The Pain (also team name)
Dan Bradley
Chipmonkidadooda (Chipmonk Chargers)
Hogsback (Hogsback Heat)
The Away Team (Los Carneros de Angeles)
Numba1 (Dallastoon - our reigning Champions!)

Dropping out-
Gman84 (Gman 84ers)


Waiting List -
TouchdownTips
Mogweister
SaltLakeCity (Playoff Sunday)
Janeen Jervis (able to step up if we're one short come crunch-time)

DRAFT TIME

We're going to have to go with one of the next two weekends. Available time is limited. I've taken 27th Aug at 5pm UK time for now, so as to get a time chosen at least, because we need to get things moving.

From last season, we will have relegation/promotion as follows;

Due to be promoted from League 2 to League 1:
1st Place
Los Carneros de Angeles
2nd Place
Redhawks
3rd Place
Titans Rule

Due to be relegated from League 1 to League 2:
10th Place
TheTouchdownToadster
11th Place
Bobslay13 Guttersnipes
12th Place
The Borg

Assuming all return this will go smoothly. If some don't return then I'll work it out on merit. IE if a promoted team fails to return, then the 4th place team will be promoted and a new team brought in to League 2. If one of the relegated teams don't return then their place will be taken by a promoted team and a new team brought in to League 2

Sorted! The promotion/relegation, as stated by Laz last year is based on regular season standings, not the play-offs! I used the wrong 1-2-3. Sorry Hoggie!! :(

I'm going to pass this year. I was in the last couple of years but I kind of forgot about it last year after a mobile phone glitch meant I accicdently cut Melvin Gordon before Week 1. I play a keeper league that I've been in for aboiut 15 years and I'm just going to stick to that as I also find it frsutrating when you have players crossing over. Easier to stick to one league. Enjoy though guys.

Ok, for anyone interested, if you log on to your Fantasy team, go to My Team>Edit Settings then you can modify/change your team name, as well as add an avatar for your team

WHILE ON THIS SUBJECT - can all of you returning/entering please let me know your team name so I can tie up OLBG name to Fantasy team name. I know some of you, but not all. It'll help make sure I contact the right persons when it comes to moving teams from Lg1 to 2 and vice-versa!
