Sorry, I'll have to pass this year. 

 

Thanks for the memories.  It's been fun.

 

May your players have good health and find the end zone...

 

You will be missed, man. Good luck with everything in life!!!

 

This means that @Kangaroo - who placed 3rd in Joe's league is a sure entry to the Elite league right now.

Hopefully @Colt92 can help out as I know you have reached out. The only info from last year that I knew was that "Zero Lucks Given" was the team that beat me in the 'Ship and NFL.com only lists the owner as "Dan" so that is all I could go by. It would definitely help to know who owns what team in each league especially as we all start to interact.

 

Looking forward to joining you guys this year here and hopefully we can figure out who the other Joe's owner from last year is.

Bummed to see you go. We enjoyed having you all these years, Kirk.

 

Like I have done before, the top 2 in the Joe's league are guaranteed spots in the Elite league.

 

Then, I have gone Joe league No.3, then Joe league No.4 to fill the next 2 no returns followed by Elite league No.11 (subject to league approval). @spoonfish decided to not return, so I went with @Kangaroo who was Joe League No.3, @Valpo2004 decided to not return, so @brently76 would be next in line. @brently76 - can you confirm if you are available to join the CFF elite league? Let us know. Thanks.

Have you considered using Sleeper app? I joined a dynasty league on it in June and I’m really liking the chat and other league features. I know I’m new but I didn’t see it considered in last years thread so I wanted to bring it forward for consideration. Thank you for the invitation btw

Welcome to the league. We will discuss it when we bring up the forum, week to week league rules etc. for discussion after the teams are finalized. Right now, my first priority is assembling the 12 teams. 

 

I do know our guys are creatures of habit. :)

If theres any open spots left, im down to join in! 

 

No this league can be joined only by being in part of Joe's league or CFF Elite league, by invite only for CFF Elite league.

 

The tradition is, every year, the bottom 2 of the CFF Elite league make way for the Top 2 in the Joe's league. Then, based on vacancy, I move on to the 3rd, 4th etc. placed folks in the Joe's league. Joe's league, however, you can ask to join in.

 

@Lucky Colts Fan should be the commish this year for the Joe's league, contact him to get in there first.

Just FYI, the deadline for finalizing the 12 teams would be August 15th. Then the deadline for finalizing rules will be August 22nd. 

 

I can set the draft date and time any time once the 12 teams are finalized based on consensus.

@spoonfish is back. He was eligible to return to CFF Elite league as part of the Top 10, so I am letting him back in. No one knows who the Joe's league champ is, at least I can get hold of the CFF Elite league champ but he is yet to respond. So this is the tentative list for now. If the Joe's league champ miraculously comes back, we will evaluate then.

These are the 12 on the list right now. Just 1 more to confirm. If @Statiik82 and the "no contact info" Joe's league champ do not respond, next in line would be @Melancholie from the Joe's league to wrap up the 12. :) 

 

Can't wait for August 15th to wrap this thing up. :) 

 

P.S: I do sincerely hope both the CFF Elite league champ and the Joe's league champ are OK w.r.t Covid and all, that did cross my mind.

Alright, August 15th it is, and the 12 teams are finalized. :)  Team names listed below.

 

@Virtuoso80 - Team Name Virtuoso80

@Juanjo - The Forever Uncleans
@IndyD4U  - IndyD4U

@chad72 (yours truly commish) - AxelF

@onebad150 - Screaming Eagles

@Btown_Colt - Colt Following

@Korey- Maybejustmaybe

@Statiik82 (defending champ) - Paye Up

@TomDiggs - TomDiggs

@Kangaroo - Kangaroo

@brently76 - Sassy Salamanders

@spoonfish - Spoonfish

 

Here are rule changes proposed on my end:

 

i) Instead of weeks 14-16, because of the additional game added, our playoffs will be moved to weeks 15-17 like most FF leagues. So, the regular season will now be 14 weeks. Y or N?

 

ii) Our previous year, the 6th playoff spot went to the person with the most points from spots 6-12 with a minimum of 5 wins. This accounted for cases where a high scoring team runs into bad luck with their opponents having good weeks more often thus having not much to show for in the W column. I think there has to be a better way of doing this. How about a minimum of 6 wins with a minimum of 100 points scored over everyone else in spots 6-12 to clinch the 6th playoff spot? This would make it really well earned. Y or N?

 

iii) Continue with NFL.com for the FF league, I don't see a reason not to. Lots of history and tradition retained. Y or N?

 

iv) Is everyone fine with the current roster construction (1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 RB/WR/TE, 1 WR/TE, 1 DEF)?  Y or N?

 

v) Is everyone fine with the half-PPR format? Y or N?

 

vi) Do we keep rolling waivers for weeks 1-8 and then do waivers based on inverse order of standings weeks 9-14 and onwards? The reasoning is, early on, a 2-3 vs 3-2 really doesn't mean much, so saving waiver claims judiciously will be rewarded. After week 8, you get a good handle of the better teams to help out the losing teams. Y or N?

 

vii) Draft time - does 5 pm ET on Sunday, September 5th, 2021 work for everyone? I know @Juanjo is in Spain and @onebad150 in England, so should work fine for them too, IMO. Feel free to suggest alternate dates. Same time 5 pm ET on September 6th works for me too. 

 

Let me know with other thoughts.

I’d prefer a locked TE position but I’m fine with the consensus. First year in, I’m here for the ride. 

 

There are really a few TEs that allow you to play a locked TE position all year long, we started off in the early years that way but have flexed it to make it extremely flexible to mix and match for GMs.

 

If someone does have 2 good TEs, this way, they can play both of them if they feel they can get the production they want. If someone doesn't have any good TE, they just play WRs more, who are more plentiful than TEs, IMO.

I'm happy to go with what everyone else says.

 

3pm on a Sunday for you guys is 5am Monday for me, and I'll be on holiday, not that I can go anywhere because of Covid lockdown.  I'm set-up for auto draft anyway, so all is good

Don't change it for me--I have set my draft preferences up, and trust me, 1st day on holiday I will be sleeping in well past 7am after having to get up before 4am every morning for work

OK, draft order, I would like one or 2 of you to be available while I sort the team names in random fashion. Then I will paste it here so that you can mock with that order till September 5th. I will use the list below in a screen share and you can see me sorting it 3 times to arrive at the final order.
