    The league went great last year, and hopefully all of the guys that participated last year can return. I've sent email reminders to all of the owners from last year, but there will probably still be some openings. If you are interested in joining please post here. I'll wait a few days to hear from the returning guys if they want to come back, then start letting a few newbies in.

    It's a 12 team league. If everyone could also post what time would be best for them for a draft that would be great. The season doesn't start until Sept 5, so still quite a bit of time.

    And here's the thread from last season.

    Let's get ready for some football!

    I'm in!

    Good, competitive league last year. Thanks for administering it again, JBF#1.

    Re draft time I'd prefer a weekend, and early or mid-afternoon US time.

    Sent emails to the guys that posted. Also resent to everyone else. Hoping to get the league filled by the end of the week to start settling on a draft time.

    thanks JBF#1! Can't wait for it to start!

    I think we should be able to trade draft picks.

    If I don't have a tournament then the evening on any weekend would be fine.

    Was in it last year, but didn't do so well. :(

    Hopefully I'll do better this time.

    Got the invite, but this is the error message I get.

    There was a problem
    There is not room in this league if all teams from last year return. If you were invited to take over an existing team, please click the link in the email you received to join the league. To create a brand new team, get the commissioner to increase the maximum number of teams, or remove teams that will not be returning. (Error #638)

    Still got two spots open. I won't fill them unless two more people post interest here. If not we'll just go with 10.

    League is filled! Posted about draft time on the league page, but I'll post here as well. I'm thinking this Sunday night at 8. Sunday usually is a pretty free day for everyone, so hopefully that's OK. If not feel free to post otherwise.

    Looking forward to it.

    Drafting at #3, so can avoid the odd prospect this year of drafting anything but a RB in the 1st! But then it's a long old wait until #21 comes around.

    I swear the draft thing messed up... I had Julio Jones on my autodraft. Somehow I drafted Fred jackson... (who was further down my list. My team is the worse team for WRs lol.

    Hopefully Pierre Garcon and RGIII can connect many passes!

    Hopefully this year my team doesn't crumble if/when DMC goes down. And I got Vick, double the trouble of injury prone guys.

    And the best draft, according to Yahoo.

    I think it's going to be a very interesting year in a lot of leagues, not just this one. The uncertainty at RB and WR leaves a lot of question marks which is why I think a lot of us reached for them and passed on more solid QBs.

    Manning falling as low as he did (end of Round 5) could turn out to be the steal of the draft, unfortunately. Sorry for any confusion as far as the draft/app messing up, these things always seem to happen unfortunately, but hopefully everyone is (relatively) happy with their teams and ready for some football!

    I am the same way, my RB's are Forte and Gore, so they could both easily end up injured.

    Yeah - the lack of premium backs really changes the dynamic of a whole draft. Felt like I was picking up players in spots I usually wouldn't, and ended up without the RB depth I usually anchor my team around.

    A lot of question marks on my team, but with upside if they work out. Marshall (back with Cutler / personal problems), Julio Jones (Roddy White on other side gets him easier matchups / Roddy White has big season), Demaryius Thomas (go to guy for Peyton / Peyton flops and doesn't improve on rookie numbers) and Britt (amazing when healthy and not suspended / just about anything) at WR could be huge, but they could also very easily be bums! I just hope Michael Turner can trundle through one more season with reasonable production.

    Am I the only one w/o a "star" RB? Hopefully Fred Jackson can stay healthy this year.

    I don't have a star back either, unless you consider Matt Forte a star.

    Also, if anyone wants RG3, I will be happy to trade him away.

    Yea I planned it differently, I am running other leagues and people were giving me a lot of crap for taking Manning in the first round so I waited it out here and got him later on. I am pretty happy with my team I would say, as long as MJD does not show up, I should be solid. Just need to get a couple more solid bench players.

    With Forte, Bush is lingering. And they could just slit carries, like the Charles and Hillis combo.

    That trade seems like one of those moves for the sake of making a move. I think theTREE got the better of that one.

    That's ok, if Jennings can do what he does during Pre-season, he is golden. Plus, he is starting anyhow.

    Fantasy time again!

    Need my backs to get going; just a combined 4.2 points in first half from LeSean Jackson and Mike Turner.

    No complaints about Brandon Marshall and Julio Jones, though. :)

    RGIII's value clearly on the up.

    I don't have RGIII on my team. I saw he was on the trade block, and his 1st half today looked very impressive.

    Adrian Petersen looks like he's back.

    All of *******s' receivers are having career days. Dangelo having -1 rushing yards doesn't help. Looks like an L for me unless DMC drops 3 TDs tomorrow.
