A League of My Own

For the first time, I am the creator and manager of a fantasy football league. Ever since I started playing fantasy football I've been wanting to set up my own league with a little bit different settings than most leagues. I wanted to change the scoring system around so that wide receivers became nearly as valuable as quarterbacks and running backs.

My reasoning in this is that it seems like whoever has the best quarterback and running back usually wins the league because nobody can consistently score enough points to beat them. Well, if you throw receivers in the mix, then it gives more people a chance to keep up.

So, that's what I did. I don't know if my scoring system is exactly right, but it's definitely different and it definitely makes receivers more valuable than in most leagues.

The other thing I wanted to do with this league was get 16 teams in it to make it really competitive. The deepest league I'd been in up to this year was 12 teams. I wasn't sure I could get 16 guys to commit to a league, especially when most of them are in other leagues already, but I did it and I'm excited to see how it plays out.

So, I give you ...

Recognize any of these guys?

16 teams? That's a real man's league....I bet the last third of that draft was really tough. Sounds like alot of fun, considering the ones I recognized from the picture. I'm looking forward to the updates as the season progress...how about a roster post for your team? I'd love to see how you did...
