That's right! It's getting to be that time of year! Well, actually, it's really early this year, but better to get it out there early than late.

Anyway, I've set up a fantasy football league at Fox Sports again this year (yeah, yeah, I remember all of the issues we had last year, but I'm chalking those up to first year bugs. It was pretty solid by the end of the year), and it's ready for teams. If you're interested, here's the sign up info:

I've made a few changes this year: The biggest change is the number of teams. I'm limiting it to 10 this year. Last year, it was 12, and, for a casual league, I think owners had to dig too deep to find talent - especially at wide receiver. The year before, I had 8 owners, and teams were (I felt) too stacked. This year, we'll try 10, and see how that works out.

Other rule changes? Last year, something screwed up, and rosters ended?ended up requiring 3 wide receivers and a WR/TE. That was too much. This year, it's 2 WR and one WR/TE. The scoring numbers have been adjusted (mainly based on MSN's recommendations. I also added bonuses for 100 yards rushing, 100 yards receiving, and 300 yards passing. Playoffs is 4 teams, and we'll be divided into two divisions, just like last year. One last change: All free agents are on waivers at the start of the week, meaning that you'll need to scout talent ahead of time, and not be able to grab players who have a great week?early Monday morning?- everyone has an equal shot at them, even if yuo can't get to it early on in the week.

As always,?the league is first-come, first-serve, so if you want to be a part, sign up now! The draft will by Sunday, September 3rd (pre-season finishes up the previous Friday, so it gives you time for any last minute changes). It's an auto draft, so there's no time commitment there. If you do sign up, please leave a comment here letting me know what team you are!
