NFL Fantasy Football

Post by Alex Holowczak » Thu Jul 18, 2013 9:18 am

Someone mooted this idea last year during the Premier League equivalent, so I decided to boldly set one up on NFL.com.

There's space for 8 teams, which will play a double round APA against each other during weeks 1-14. Top 4 in the league go into playoffs in week 15 and 16.

I kept all of the scoring rules and positions as the default settings, so your team needs 1 QB, 2 WR, 2 RB, 1 TE, 1 HB/WR, 1 K, 1 DEF; plus 6 reserves.

The draft is tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, August 28th at 7:30pm BST.

I know I'm not exactly a regular here but I've joined so your league is filled.
