So far, the 10 returning are:

@Juanjo (The Forever Uncleans On Tour)

@Valpo2004 (VU Cru)

@crazycolt1 (Out Of Bounds) decided not to return and @HOFClipboardHolder (HOFClipboardHolder) finished last. 

 

@Colt92 - please provide the names of the top 2 guys from the Joe's league to join our league, like the yearly tradition. 

 

Can 9 of the above 10, besides me, confirm they can commit to another season? Then, we can start discussing rule changes, when July comes around.

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?

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?

I'm not sure, I've always used the app. Just type Sleeper in the app store, the logo is a robot. Man, it's totally worth making the switch, it's hard to imagine that I used to play on other platforms lol

    • IR. PUP. Starts Wk 1.    That's covered it. 
    • Multiple times I have said the length of the deal would be the issue...like probably in four different posts in this thread. But I think there are people who would even be against paying a RB (like Zeke) that much money for 1-2 years...or wouldn't even give up a late pick for him.    I brought up Funchess because signing Zeke would be akin to signing a Funchess each offseason for a few years. From a financial standpoint...that's not unreasonable. The picks are a different discussion...but Zeke is also on a completely different level...and there is going to be an acquisition cost to getting a player like that.    The bit about Mack was meant to be tongue-in-cheek. The rest of my comment isn't meant to be an attack or even a generalization...it's just an observation about what I have seen in many fans the past year (the Mack situation actually predated a lot of this).   There seems to be a theme...that when a talented non-Colts player vet is mentioned as a possibility to acquire (who would have a cost attached)...there are many that are either dismissive or against it...to the point that late round picks are too much to give up. I think that happens more often than people ignoring the acquisition cost and saying "gimme, gimme." (To be fair...I think saying people "routinely" ignore the acquisition cost is as much of an unfair representation or generalization as what I said...just on the opposite spectrum).   I respect your opinion...and we actually agree on many things (including aspects of roster construction)...I just think I must be in the minority when it comes to taking 'big swings' around here.
    • So here we are again, bunches of cap money, hoping our draft picks are as good as last year, but sweating our QB issue.     How many draft picks are we gonna horde?   How much cap space are we gonna bank?   I realize this deal with Zeke might be just a rumor and forum fodder, but if we have a chance to bring him in, I say yes.  As I, and many other members have said many times, we have a QB that can win a super bowl, but so far we have wasted the opportunity because we lack that 1 player that completes the puzzle.     Andrew has suffered more pain playing on our team then any other Colt's player that I can recall,  I say again, it's time to loosen the purse strings and sign some proven talent to give him a fighting chance.
    • I don't look for him to do much at DT. He played really limited snaps on the interior, really only when they game was far out of hand. Much like here in Indy, there were much better guys on that interior at Ohio State. Tyquan didn't get many "meaningful" snaps inside. Even now he's going to get limited snaps inside because Autry, Hunt, and Ward as just better interior players. I still think he would be a good, cheap replacement, for Sheard, if they got him back down in the 260's. He's good against the run and may get a handful of sacks a year against average RT's. I still scratch my head on why they insist on doing what they are doing with him now.     Yea that's not the story. Him and J Bosa were the starting DE's until they left. Hubbard eventually took over for Bosa when he left and Chase was still sitting behind Tyquan, Nick, and Sam. Chase will be a stud though and I have no doubts he'll be a top-10 pick next year barring injury. 6-5 265 with stupid athleticism, and is equally as good against the run as he is rushing the passer.   Maybe they were thinking Tyquan could turn into a Michael Bennett-type, who can bounce inside and outside on the fly, but I just don't see him being that kind of guy. He wasn't overly athletic at 260'ish, so he's definitely going be hindered with another 10-15-20lbs.
    • Cards lost 5-3 in a rain out called after the top of the 8th. Cubs back in 1st place after tonight. NL Central standings heading into August 22nd are:   Cubs 68-58 Cards 67-58 (.5 back) Brewers 65-62 (3.5 back)   Here's a question to Cards fans, @Jay Kirk , @Barry Sears, and @Myles, what do you guys think about important games being called after the bottom of the 5th of games? This was called in the bottom of the 8th. In the playoffs it is different, if a game is called because of weather, the 2 teams resume the next day where it left off. Having said that the regular season is different, thoughts?
