RossCode Fantasy League - An Update

posted on 2005-08-21 at 17:12:14 by Joel Ross

I'm down to two openings left for the RossCode Fantasy League, and it'd be great to fill those. I don't think I've mentioned this before, but the draft will be on September 5th. That's the Monday after the last preseason game. You'll get your team, rosters will be locked for a day, and for the next two days, all players will be on waivers. So either Wednesday or Thursday, you'll get any players you claim off of waivers if you need to make any roster moves. Just in time for the first regular season game of the year!

I was set up to only have 4 teams in the playoffs. I have 14 teams right now, and I bumped it up to 6 teams, reducing the regular season to 13 weeks, with three weeks of playoffs. With only 4 teams in the playoffs, we'd have 14 weeks of regular season, and 2 weeks of playoffs.

On a side note, I don't like to use week 17 in my leagues. Why? Too many good players are sat out or limited because their team's spot in the playoffs is secure. I'd hate to see a team lose the championship because a player that carried their team sits one out.

Anyway, I have 5 people saying they want one of the open spots, so if they follow through, I'll have a 16 team league. And so everyone knows, don't pay attention to the draft order yet. Once the last two spots are filled (if they get filled), I'll run one more "randomizer" on it, and that will finalize the order. Then everyone can really start preparing their list.

Anyway, if you're interested, the spots are first come, first serve. Head on over and get the details, and then sign up!
