At some point pick two draft dates that seem good and organize the two leagues by which draft date people choose with you and Paradis as commishes. Prime drafting spots are for more of the high stakes games so draft time is critical to play in a free league.

I’m thinking the day after the 3rd preseason game, Saturday 8/25. Yahoo runs off of LA time though so we’ll have to figure out the correct time. I run off Central time zone while many here are on Eastern Time.

I have my Yahoo preferences set to EDT.  You can set them to whatever you want. The default is PDT.

Bonus points a extremely high imo. A 40 yard TD pass would give a QB almost 16 points. That’s way too high IMO. 

Bonus points should be just 1 point for each category you pointed out. It’s just a bonus point. The entire game shouldn’t depend on couple of big plays by a QB while that same QB lays an egg in the rest of the game. Same for recovering and rushing. All of these should be 1 point each. 

However, I’d like to see 2 bonus points for reaching 100 yards and then another 3 points for reaching 200 yards in receiving and rushing. Passing should give out 2 points for 300 yards, 3 for 400 yards and 4 for 500 yards. Those are real milestones as opposed to isolated big completions/rushes/catches. 

Also, are we going to have a kicker? If so, the extra point try should be 3 points, 30 yard kick 3 points, 40 yard 4 points and 50 yard 5 points. Missing a kick below 40 or extra point should result in a negative point. Standard format makes the kickers rather irrelevant with very minimal points.

I’ve never done Yahoo before, so if @joewilly12 says it’s random, i assume it is. Everything is all kinda new to me but I did fool with it for a minute yesterday. Made a quick “dummy league” to delete afterwards and it has a link to send out invites with..which is a lot more convenient than sending emails. 

I know a ton of people I do fantasy football with don’t even check emails lol.

Draft order can be one of two. Auto or manual. 

Manual is more fun requires trust. I don’t care either way. But in my usual league, the commish draws names out of the hat and posts it. Sounds more fun. 

The auto will be random and given to you 30 minutes prior to the start time.

the commish can auto random the draft order at any time prior to the draft.  Yahoo will do it automatically 30 minutes before.

I prefer the commish hit the random draft order button once all the teams are in.  It's better for everyone to know his draft slot at least a couple of days before the draft or more.

Draft order needs to be randomly selected by Yahoo.

End of discussion. 

of course.  But we can choose to do it at any time.  I am not a fan of finding out 30 minutes before the draft.  I'd like the commish to hit the random draft order button after all 12 teams are in each league.  And Yahoo shows exactly how many times a commish hits the "set draft order" button, so the commish should only be doing it once, otherwise it will look the commish is trying to reset draft order until he finds one he likes for himself.

shucks.  Well if @Patriot Killa can't find a separate commish for the 2nd league, I guess I can do it.  But I am already commsh of 3 keeper leagues I run and would greatly prefer someone else step up.

I got you covered. Killa can do one league. I’ll do league B. And if we need a third league, which I’m sure posters would love to join, we can start a league C later on.

that's awesome!  We just have to make sure that both leagues have the same exact settings and scoring.  The only difference should be the draft date and 12 teams participating.

We'd also have to decide on whether we let it go into week 17.  I'd prefer not.  Let the 2 12-team leagues get their championships done on week 16.  Then, in week 17, the 2 winners from each league can set their rosters on the board here (because Yahoo doesn't allow a Championship merge between 2 different leagues) and they can have a head-to-head show down that we hand score.  

THere are other host sites that allow a Championship game to merge from a pair of champions in different leagues.  I play in one, but it's a pay site, not free.

Appreciate it! This will help things go a lot smoother with timing and such.

once we've recruited enough to get 24 teams, we should get a mod to pin this to the top of the Fantasy Sports forum to get it out of the main forum?
