    Default Holonet Fantasy Football Signups

    Hey gang,

    I hope it's cool with coldskier but I've gone ahead and set us up a Holonet Fantasy Football league on Yahoo! Sports. I just got that familiar itch and decided to scratch it, so the league has been created and we're ready to begin signups.

    I've already sent out a few invites, and we have room for 20 total teams. So, if you want in, post here! I'll send out invites based on the order they are posted here.

    Are you ready for some football?

    Default Frankfurt Duckbills

    I just signed up with my team. The Frankfurt Duckbills, a total fictional team. Can't wait to get started...

    I've signed up as well, under the guise of MJ's Iron Riders. Can't believe we went from a fairly unknown group to this.

    Totally fine, appreciated even. As a quick question, how does our league's scoring compare to Yahoo standard? Exact same? I know last year we counted kick return yards as rush yards, but any way you wanna do it is fine, just let me know. Also, did I get an invite (or via what was it sent?) If its email, my Gmail account is on a temp fritz, and I'll join as soon as I can access my inbox.

    Just to get this straight...we'll each have points from two QBs? And two TEs?

    Default Go, uh, Me!

    I'm in.

    And you'll never guess which team I have...

    Now, off to delete all Steelers, Ravens, and T Owenses from my draft ranking...

    Yeah, 2 QB's and 2 tight ends -- so everyone should rank your QB's high, or get stuck with second-stringers.

    The only scoring I altered from Yahoo standard was that fumble recoveries earn 2 points.

    I'm interested, but I have no idea how to do this. Or even, really what it is.

    Is that a particular hindrance, or can I get/be pointed to a tutorial?

    Basically you have to follow -- to some extent -- American Football. From there, you need some sort of expert advice (ESPN counts in this case, as American Football is about the only sport they cover right) on draft picks (they do entire shows on Fantasy Football drafts so no worries there) and from there you just need to keep an eye on your players.

    Their performances will directly impact how well your make-believe team does.

    So, if I understand this all correctly, I rank a pile of players who I want, and then I follow them in real life, and however well they do in real life is how well my team does?

    Sounds good to me.

    The Avenging Psychics have joined the league. Soon to be composed of relatively random high-ranked players, this team's goal consists mostly of not coming in dead last.

    Hmmmm...what's the name of that one QB who's really fast and (used?) to paly for the Falcons and does he play anymore? I couldn't find a QB name I recognized that I didn't already know was somebody else...

    (I don't know much about football. Hopefully I'll learn something this year, and do better next year. Hopefully I'll have time to read the tutorials before the draft, too...)
