Angry Groceries In A Bag (Fantasy Football)

By now I'm sure that all of you folks are signed up for some sort of fantasy football league (I know I am). But most fantasy players I know don't restrict themselves to only one I'm making my league available to SBnation members.

I'd like it to include fans from different NFL teams so  I’m making this league available to several other people outside of ninersnation.

This pretty much means that you can get in only if you’re really REALLY up for it and will participate all season (as you should for any FF league).
I’m going to manage all the requests slowly so don’t worry if you see this post and think it’s too late.

I want to make sure I have the best/most dedicated FF players I know in the league.

I know most of you so I have a pretty good idea of who's really into fantasy football and whatnot.


I've posted the league specifics after the jump.

12 Teams
4 Divisions
Offensive players only (with Team defenses)
H2H scoring

Fumble lost = -1pt

10 yds = 1 pt

Allowed 0 pts = 15 pts
Allowed 1-6 pts = 10 pts
Allowed 7-13 pts = 7 pts
Allowed 14-17 pts = 4 pts
Allowed 18-21 pts = 1 pt
Allowed 22-27 pts= 0 pt
Allowed 28-34 pts = -1 pt
Allowed 35-45 pts = -4 pts
Allowed 46+ pts = -7 pts

As you can see it is a heavy scoring based league (I'm not a fan of negative points).

There is very little I'm willing to change about the league at the moment (mainly because it is a format we've used for some time now). I may be convinced to change the trade deadline to another date and stuff like that.


Another important note: It's an ESPN league so its invite only, which means I'll need your e-mail. Don't post it just yet though. I'll try to manage all the requests before I start sending invites.

This is a FanPost and does not necessarily reflect the views of Niners Nation's writers or editors. It does reflect the views of this particular fan though, which is as important as the views of Niners Nation's writers or editors.
