    RSR Fantasy Football SetUp/Discussion

    Hi,

    I know it's a little early, but I wanted to start the discussion around format, leagues, etc. for RSR fantasy football. After last year's injuries in the final preseason game, I'm thinking it would be smart to hold any drafts for leagues after the final preseason game.

    Last year we had 2 leagues with 10-12 teams each if I recall correctly. League 1 was commissioned by LaxDad. (can't remember who commissioned League 2) Both leagues were set up with the Auction draft format. At one point there, was also a discussion about creating another league for this year that used individual defensive players, etc.

    I know I am definitely game to do League 1 again, and would also be willing to try a 2nd league if we want to experiment with a different format (or to fill out League 2 if there is an odd number, etc). I am also happy to be the commissioner of 1 of the leagues if needed (not sure if anyone has heard from LaxDad...I know a while back people were wondering where he was)

    So, please post if you are interested and what your interest/preferences are: If you are a past participant, it would probably be helpful if you posted your previous team name (unless it is extremely similar to your RSR screen name)

    1) Do you prefer Auction draft or standard draft?
    2) Do you have a specific league you want to be in/continue with? (Ex: I would like to remain in League 1)
    3) What are your thought on any alternative leagues?--Ind. defensive players, etc. If you are interested in one of these, would you want to participate in that league + more standard league or just that one, etc.)
    4) We have used Yahoo the last few years. Do you want to keep that platform or try a different one?



    PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU HAVE DIFFERENT PREFERENCES:

    League 1 = Auction Draft

    League 2 = Snake Draft

    League 3 (if enough interest) = individual defensive players, Draft type TBD.

    I wasn't in it last year, as I had a newborn and couldn't devote the time, have played in the past and don't remember the team name, I'll play this year if there is room but I wouldn't want to take any returnee's place so only if you have extra spots.

    I don't have any preference on the questions. I find Auction draft to be more engaging/strategic personally but not everyone likes it. I'd play in more than one if the secondary is different as you mentioned.

    Added you to the list (on original post) If Laxdad doesn't show back up, I may need to create a new league and send a fresh invite to take over as commish

    Oh okay. Iím would like to join league 1.

    I have only done standard so I have no clue how good auction is. I understand it but never participated. If I had to choose Iíd go standard because I understand it.

    Re: RSR Fantasy Football SetUp/Discussion

    I'm in as always.

    I'll be in all 3 if we need people. I definitely want to continue in League 1 and I'm a big fan of IDP. I've been in one for 19 years now.

    Let me answer some of the questions asked

    I love the way we've been doing the auction in League 1. It's a great change from snake drafts and I'd like to keep it. Keep League Deaux as the snake draft so there is a choice.

    I also am a fan of the Yahoo platform. I had a league on Sleeper last year and the interface was not nearly as good. It was better at chatting and communication but I found I would research on Yahoo for transactions on Sleeper.

    Last thing is 12 teams is the sweet spot. With 10 teams the depth is massive for teams. I find it leads to less trading or transactions because so many teams are loaded. Stick with 12 team leagues.
