    Default HoloNet Fantasy Football

    I just renewed the league...and I *think* Yahoo has sent all of last year's players an email invitation. If you didn't get one, let me know and I'll see what's up...they change things every year, so it's sometimes confusing to figure out what exactly is going on. Apparently, they're doing away with the league ID and password now and you need to be directly invited by the commish, so if you didn't get that email, I'll make sure one finds its way to you.

    That said, I'm planning to run it like last year. Same rules, with an autodraft pretty late in the preseason, but definitely in time to get all of the games in. Pre-rank as you see fit!

    Sorry it took me so long to join, I was out of town on my wedding/honeymoon trip, and then we had Player's Handbook crunch, and then Origins. I'm signed up, though!

    That's weird, as i specifically told it to email everyone.

    In any event, get your pre-rankings, if any, done asap. I'll trigger the auto draft near the end of this weekend.

    My pre-ranking is done so you can trigger it any time if I'm the straggler.

    Just renewed the league and sent out invites!

    To any HoloNet friends that haven't been a part of our league that are interested: just let me know, and I'll get you the password! We have had a small, but regular group playing for quite a few years now. No stress, no money, totally friendly.

    Okay, this year was a pain for me as (literally) every player I traded for or picked up off waivers ended up with a multi-week injury. [\stops complaining]

    But it was and still is fun to compete against all the Holoneters I've know for over 10 years now. Plus, your 4 time and defending HoloNet Fantasy Football Champion won't go down without a fight. Even though I am currently in 5th place after 4 game loosing streak I'll make playoff push. After all, I am going for the three-peat.

    Here are the week 12 standings:

    This was by far the worst season I've ever had in any league. Just couldn't catch a break any which way.

    Luckily, it's not all bad, as I did do a second league this year with some other friends.

    It ended up being a 16 (yes, sixteen) team league, so maybe my issues here were a result of having such a drastic difference there.

    That said, I'm currently 3rd of 16 in that league (though likely dropping a spot or two after a loss this week), and I should be a lock for a playoff spot there.

    I'm glad autodraft didn't fail me for this league.

    I got wrecked by injuries in another one, to the point where the only original players I have left are Eli Manning and Tom Brady (although in his defense I didn't lose Ingram until this week).

    It's been a really, really awful season for the NFL. One that they're going to be explaining for a while.

    This was my best season ever! I won the league! But then the post season championship was the worst I've ever been in, leaving me without a medal. While some had the best timing in the world.
