    If we can find a day that would be good for all of us to draft then I can set it up.

    Weekends are best for me, or a late night type of deal.

    Would you prefer a starting lineup of 2 qbs, 2 rbs, 2 flex (rb/wr), 2 wrs, 1 te, 1 def, 1 k, and 7-8 bench spots. Or a 1 qb, 2 rbs, 1 flex (rb/wr), 2 wrs, 1 te, 1 def, 1 k, and 6 bench

    I would lose the flex and add a standard WR or maybe a TE/WR flex.

    The league is weak in RBs and it would just award someones lucky guess over skill.

    Yeah at this point the amount of guaranteed starting rbs is low

    It was terrible last season, everyone got a great or at least quality back for your #1 slot and then it was a guessing game the rest of the way. I guessed wrong, and had my worst year in more than a decade of playing fantasy football (by far, it was horrific).

    I finished first in points and record in league last year because of my receivers. Because of injuries and the number of players in the league I was reduced to starting Danny Woodhead and Brandon Jackson in the last three games. It sucked.

    I drafted rodgers first the past 3 years and I have been golden. Rbs and Wrs can be picked up from waivers.

    I am in as well!

    Have been playing on yahoo so don't know how espn works. But we play the head to head version and then have playoffs at the end. I finished first in the regular season last year and lost in the championship game!

    I'll give it a go. Helped my 10yr old win on NFL.com last year. Got lucky getting Vick on waivers. We never did get productive receivers. Steven Jackson and Gore as workhorse RBs. How about getting team special teams involved some how? Yards per return gotten - given plus scores and turnovers. I didn't like how NFL.com public leagues did it. Scores go with the defense but turnovers charged to the players personal stats.

    Any preferences for the league? Such as starting 2 qbs or having 10 bench spots? I am leaving the scoring as standard.

    Nay to two QBs or to extra people on the bench.

    I have always wondered what a league without kickers would be like, but other than that maybe have a WR/TE flex position and take away a standard WR, those always work well.

    Idk, I like the 2 qbs starting. But it depends on how many teams we will have. I wont make the league till the beginning of next month so that more of these signings and trades get done.

    If we have ten teams and two starters, that means you have to draft at least one back-up, which means 30 of the 32 starting QBs would be drafted. That isn't fantasy football to me. If there is only 5 teams why not I suppose, I still don't like the idea, but anymore than 5..
