Today we have a topic a little different than video games, but hey its still a game. Its that time of year, were talking about some Football! Fantasy Football that is!
For the last few years I been heading up a Fantasy Football League as commissioner. We started about 3 years ago on yahoo fantasy sports. It's been a blast, it really gets you into to football, following players and stats and your favorite teams.
This year things are a little different. Since our newbs are now seasoned vets, I can finally talk them into playing for some cold hard cash! Well were not talking huge money here, only $20 a team. But we have a 12 man league, up from a 8 man league from last year. So that will make a pretty good pot for the winners to take home. Everyone is pretty excited and ready to step up their game since money is on the line this year.
So tonight is our big night, in our league, tonight is DRAFT NIGHT! Tonight some of us from the league have decided to meet up, at a local restaurant and the others, who our out of towners, will be draft from the comfort of their home. This year we are trying out a new drafty system, were doing a auction style draft, where each team gets a budget of $200 to bid on players. We did a mock draft and everyone loved it, no one want to go back to the old way.
Well hopefully I get some good players in tonight's draft and I will be sure to post my roster when I have it set!
Good luck out there other Fantasy Football players!
