Fantasy Football League Settings:

Head to head

    1QB
    2RB
    3WR
    1QB/RB/WR/TE (superflex)
    1RB/WR/TE (standard flex)
    1TE
    1PK
    1DF
   

0.5 point per reception
4 point passing TD
All else Yahoo standard scoring

 

Waiver Type:FAAB w/ Reverse order of standings tiebreak

Playoffs:Week 14, 15, and 16 (6 teams make playoffs - this will depend on number of teams)

 

 

Music Draft League Settings:

Going back to year 1 rules but expanding and simplifying slightly:

 When you draft a football player you must also pick a song performed by an artist (solo or band) who can trace origins to either:

  • The player's NFL city. -OR-
  • His College -OR-
  • His place of birth

WITHIN 100 MILES of any of the above is fine

 

So if you picked George Springer, you'd also need to pick a song by a performer from within 100 miles of Houston (team city), New Britain, Connecticut  (hometown) or Storrs, Connecticut (University/UCONN).

Musician lineage can be traced from being born there, or beginning their career there so Joe Strummer would be eligible for either Ankara or London.  We'll use Wikipedia as the authoritative source.

NFL team representation is by their named city e.g. New York, San Francisco rather than E. Rutherford or Santa Clara

Teams named after states or regions get their home city, not the entire state, e.g. Boston, Nashville

 

IF THIS GOES I WILL NEED HELP RUNNING THE DRAFT AND SPREADSHEET, I WILL MAINTAIN ALL OF YAHOO AGAIN

2.07:   NICK CHUBB - RB  (went to U of GA) SONG:  B-52s:  MESOPOTAMIA LINK   Trying to dig a tad deeper and have some fun with this playlist.  

This is the second season without one of our original members. The league was started by my brother 21 years ago. Most of the people in the league are people my brother grew up with or met in college

I'm just happy the air quality has improved enough for me to sit back and take a deep breath

Yeah I'm out, sorry.  Thoroughly enjoying my year off from magic sports.   I don't see how this season goes off without a lot of people getting sick but hey I'm no scientist.  Happy to hang out sometimes, listen to tunes and commentate

Bump. I have no idea how COVID will affect fantasy football, or how people are feeling about it this year (your mileage may certainly vary) but this is a good draft and a fun league for any outsiders thinking they might want in. Usually it's the core music constituents but I don't think I'm overstepping my bounds -- per the OP -- when welcoming in those that either have an interest in music drafts but haven't done a lot with ff or those that like ff and aren't sure about the music portion. If there's a perception of some sort of expertise about music or chumminess among the participants, I can attest to that not being the case. It's a club that has me, after all. Really.

There are always in-groups, but I assure you that if share any of the passion for music and football we do that you'll be welcomed with open arms and few in-jokes that put people off to such endeavors often (we do do a thing called drunk and italicized lyrics, but that's pretty easy to figure out and even join in on.) Aside from NVs enduring love of bad singalong pop music, that is...

Yeah this is as good as a free league gets, and it's not that I'm particularly spun up about the COVID per se, especially with no money on the line here... this has just proven to be a good time for me to take a year off from FB and FF, after 20 straight.  It was starting to feel like a job, like, five years ago.

It looks like we have 8, which is doable. I'm not going to start it today but will keep this bumped and we'll look at Thursday as tentative start date. I'm counting @Pip's Invitation as in knowing that may mean a pause over this upcoming weekend. 

A couple more people would round this out nicely.

Thanks. I’m tied up from morning to mid-afternoon Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. I’ll try to prep as much as possible so I can post quickly when I do get a chance to come to the site.

Dang, COVID wiped out half our league. I think we were at 16 last year.

Twelve last year, sixteen the year before. We're losing four a year. Hemorrhaging players. Mrs. Rannous (no reply yet), Marco, Zilla, and Eeph are casualties this year so far.

Y U NO LIKE?

@zamboni @mphtrilogy@Bracie Smathers@Hot Sauce Guy

Any interest in this? I know zamboni had inquired a bit over a year ago. You're all guys I figured might be interested in this whole shebang. 

It sounds fun but I’m in 2 leagues (which is my limit)  & don’t have a ton of time for this. Thanks for thinking of me.

I usually never play two leagues, as I have been the commish in the same league for 30 years and although an owner left this year we got the slot filled so I am ramping up full force hoping we get the season in...

 

I will mix this up with you guys for grins... you can count me in...

That's awesome. Let's see if we can't get ten!

I'm in.  I have no idea who is even playing.  I think that means I'm doing the halftime show again.

This is rock n' roll radio for your halftime show!

I was thinking more about songs of disease.

Viral Pestilent Filth sounds like a tough halftime death metal band for the apocalypse. Maybe Dethklok can be our halftime show. 

Here to perform their hit song Murmaider

Nothing to tie you to a crime...

I was bummed I missed out in year 1.  I'd like to play if you guys are open to the worst musical taste in history.  :D

Been waiting for someone who dug this to come on in. The water's warm, brohan. Only thing: If you pick Rush songs, yer out! (Really because there's no teams in Canada, but still...there's N'Keal Harry!)

Rush could be from Tuscaloosa AND Kansas City and I'd never pick them.  Nails on a chalkboard.

Been waiting for someone who dug this to come on in. The water's warm, brohan. Only thing: If you pick Rush songs, yer out! (Really because there's no teams in Canada, but still...there's N'Keal Harry!)

Buffalo is within 100 mile radius of Toronto I believe. I have no idea where in Canada Rush is from though.

That's awesome. Let's see if we can't get ten!

Are you counting me as in? If so a couple noob questions.

1- do you pick the player and song at the same time or can there be some lag

2- is this a slow draft like the music ones or on the website with a 90 second timer

3-do you pick songs for FA pickups and are songs by cut players up for grabs again

1. Ideally you pick both at the same time (but once in a while some one will take a player and say they'll post their song later)

2. Slow draft in a thread

3. Yes - when you pick up player in season. you post a corresponding song in the thread. Unsure about the second part but cant see that it would matter much.

@zamboni @mphtrilogy@Bracie Smathers@Hot Sauce Guy

Any interest in this? I know zamboni had inquired a bit over a year ago. You're all guys I figured might be interested in this whole shebang. 

Its an interesting concept and normally I would want to take a stab just for the novelty but I just have not followed players or my team much this off season.  My competitive juices are lacking this year for the first time ever.  I haven't even gotten my long-standing FF league up and running.

I have a gut feeling this season is going to take a turn for the COVID at some point.  I just don't have the enthusiasm for FF or NFL right now.

Thanks for the response, Bracie. Maybe next year.
