No one showed up for the draft randomization GoToMeeting. Waited 10 minutes and decided to go ahead and do it myself.   After randomizing 3 times, this is the draft order I ended with:

Sorry man, you were just a tad late!!! I didn't know all your history from last year.    I tried reaching out to the 3rd best team from the Joe's league for as long as I could but once that

yes i like this

I'd love to play, maybe in the minors or however you guys are doing it. 

 

Great!!! Contact @Colt92 and send him a PM. 

 

It is more tradition than a testament to the player's ability since FF is a whole lot of luck anyways. :) 

 

We call our NFL.com league the Colts Forum Elite League that I manage (nothing elite about it except that it is very very competitive with the top 6 playoff rankings not decided till week 13, the week before the playoffs). The bottom 2 go to the Joe's league managed by @Colt92 and the top 2 in the Joe's league come into our league.

 

We have 10 players now and are waiting on @Colt92 to send us the top 2 from the Joe's league, go ahead and PM that user to find out if you can join. Last year, FYI, one of the Top 2 from the Joe's league, @Virtuoso80 won it all in the elite league, that is why it is just a name and tradition we retained as opposed to a true reflection of the players' abilities.

@buccolts told me he is not returning. Do any of the existing members have any issues with letting @HOFClipboardHolder play in the league even though he finished last? We have 2 members not returning - @crazycolt1 and @buccolts; hence the 11th and 12th finishes, namely me and @HOFClipboardHolder can be back.

 

Plus, @Colt92 has not gotten back to me regarding providing the top 2 players in the Joe's league. I am still waiting on that to fill those last 2 spots.

Ideally my view is that we should let the 3rd place finisher in Joe's move up when there are openings.  

 

I don't have a huge problem with it, I just think it would be more fair to move 3 up from Joes.

That makes sense. I wish @Colt92 would get back to me. Does anyone know someone who participated in the Joe's league this year?

If it takes too long maybe start a general thread about the Joes league and ask the people who played in it what the rankings were.  

 

Is @Colt92 posting or has his account gone dead?

@Chucklez @onebad150 and @Jeff Tolle - you are the Top 3 finishers in the Joe's league, I found out, thanks to @Colt92

 

Can you chime in and let me know you'd be willing and available to play in this year's Colts Forum Elite league? Thanks.

Yo, yep I’m in :) 

 

I’m UK based, so if possible a draft earlier in the afternoon for you guys on a weekend would be preferable when it comes to organising that, but I can be flexible.

It will be whatever the group consensus is, and you will be able to chime in with your choice when the time comes. :)

How many teams is the Joe's League, and when will the drafts be?

 

I'm pretty sure it's also 12 teams.  You will have to contact Colt92 about it.  I don't think the draft time has been set yet.  

 

Typically if I remember right the drafts usually happen on labor day weekend.

@Jeff Tolle

 

Please let me know within the next week i.e. by June 30th, if you would like to be part of the Elite fantasy football league. If I do not hear from you, I will have to move on to let the spot be open for others to take. Thanks.

OLD RULE CHANGES/SUGGESTIONS:

 

Here were some rule changes suggested last year and the results of their voting, anything we want to revisit?

 

1. There will be a one day waiting period for waivers (Change from 2 days) (Y/N) Y

 

2. There will be no waiting period after trade is finalized (Change from 1 day (i think)) (Y/N) Y

 

3. Choose one of these 3 drafting order options: B

a. Team owners will get to pick their preferred draft spot starting with team #12 and working back to #1.

b. The draft order will be randomized upon league creation and draft order will be visible to all owners.

 c. The draft order will be randomized 15min before the draft begins.

 

4. Choose one of these 3 platform's to play on this season (NFL.COM / ESPN / YAHOO) NFL.COM

 

5. Waivers will reset weekly based on ranking (Change from continuous rolling) (Y/N) Y

 

7. The standings tiebreaker will be points scored (Change from Head2Head) (Y/N) Y

 

8. Next season we will have keepers (the details can be hashed out later) (Y/N) N

 

 

Below are the non-default settings for this league finalized last year:

 

1. IR spot on the roster

2. Passing TD are 6 points

3. #1 plays #6 in the playoffs (Manual Intervention Needed)

4. TE position is now WR/TE

5. WR/RB position is now WR/RB/TE

5. Playoffs Week 14/15 Champ 16

6. Trade Review -  League Votes

7. D/ST gets 1 point for every 50 return yards

8. Waiting period for waivers is 1 day

9. The draft order is randomized upon league creation and draft order is visible to all owners

10. Waivers reset weekly based on ranking

11. The standings tiebreaker is points scored

 

 

NEW RULES/CHANGES SUGGESTIONS FROM ME:

 

1. Since kick returns are a thing of the past with so many touchbacks, do we do 1 point per 25 return yards for D/ST instead of 1 point per 50 return yards?

 

2. Due to heavy RBC, TDs can swing games like crazy with any RB cashing in. I want to reduce the heavy swings caused by TDs by placing a bigger premium on yards than a fluky TD to some no name RB or WR or TE. I would like to advocate 4 pts for all TDs - passing, rushing or receiving for all positions. Does that work? 

 

If you guys have anything else, please bring those ideas forward.

Realize I'm just the new guy, but Sleeper is an amazing platform to host leagues. It is by far the best I've used and it isn't really close, makes ESPN and all of the rest seem really outdated. Just a suggestion, pretty seamless to import leagues from what I understand. It's nice having the league chat interface in their built in, the ability to DM is nice, and the draft, free agents, and lineup interfaces are all the best I've used.

I am open to it. What is the URL to test or try it out?

    • Man I really like this signing!  If he can come back 80% as good as he has played I would say we def upgraded our offensive line and that’s no knock on AC I just think this guy can be much better (if healthy). I would put our offensive line up against anyone else’s.  With that said Murphy’s law keeps coming into my mind because we have soo many ifs and question marks for this team that we can literally be 6-10 bad or super bowl bound. I can’t think of any colts team with this many “if” question marks.   If wentZ can prove last year was a fluke and go back to being one of the best up and coming qb in the game than we are sitting pretty. If he plays like he did last year things will be very very ugly.    Then you got this guy. If fisher can come back healthy we can have one of the best lines in football. If he doesn’t play or is diminished we have a huge hole at one of the most important positions.      I don’t know why but I just have this feeling with so many question marks on this team, that the season could go either way. I do fear that  some of These question marks  aren’t going to go our way and we will be hurting. Btw  Some of these other question marks Include , Will Mack be back to his old self?   Was last year a fluke for our new stud RB? Will ty  hilton plAy any better, or will he continue to decline? Was last year a fluke for Xavier Rhodes? Will Paris cambell stay healthy and actually contribute?  How will our rookie DEs play?  Then you have  the question mark that every team has  which is who will stay healthy?  
    • The risk is of opportunity cost, not of losing that money. The risk is that we have now made our bet with the LT position and we are missing on more safe options, so if he doesn't recover or recovers and is not the same, we are very likely left with sub-par performance at LT for the year...     
    • He should have been like "...and my source said ... and I quote 'Look...'"  
    • As you likely know,  the 2021 schedule is revealed Wednesday Night...   5/12...   8p your time...   5p my time...     These are things I always look for as soon as I see the schedule.   In no particular order....   1.    Do we start at home, or on the road?   Typically, you close your season with the opposite.       2.    Marquee games?    National Games?    Are we on the big stage at all?    Anything beyond the dreaded Thursday night games which most every team gets stuck with and hates!     Ugh.  The worst.   3.   Bye week?    When does it happen?    I prefer late October to Early November.   Something close to the middle of the season.    We got lucky once having the bye week in week 4.    That was Luck's rookie year.    The early break allowed Chuck Pagano and his wife to see a doctor and caught his leukemia early enough to save him.    Otherwise, I hate the early bye week.   I prefer weeks 7-10.   4.   Hardest stretch of the schedule.   Easiest part of the schedule.   Knowing full well that what the schedule might seem like in May, might be totally different by the time that part of the season comes.   5.    Potential bad weather games.    So, this year,  we play Buffalo, Baltimore, Dolphins and Jags on the road.   Games in September likely means hot and humid.   Games in the northern cities in December likely means cold and even possible snow.   6.    Anything out of the ordinary?    Some years, one team gets screwed and has to play 3 consecutive games on the road.    I think it has most recently happened to SF and Seattle,  and those teams already put on a lot of miles traveling from the West Coast.   Did I leave out anything?     Is there something you look for and I didn't mention it?    Let us know!   The 2021 season gets REAL Wednesday Night!
