The ToO's Fantasy Football League

If there's something on your mind that just doesn't seem to fall into any of the other categories, well, it quite likely belongs inside Joe Finneman's marketplace. Think of it as a general store for general discussions!

The ToO's Fantasy Football League

Post by American Eagle »

If you like [American] football at all, then you should totally play fantasy football. \:D/ I'm going to again play this year.

Is anyone else interested? We could create our own ToO league...

I think I'm going to pick a centaur to be my main QB this time, and a few more minotaurs as linemen. The orcs kept getting past the line of scrimmage to the quarterback last year. :?

I've done it before. Is there anyway we could set it up on here so that I don't have to give you all my personal information? Since you could be an ax murderer for all I know. Not that I think you are, but still. And Invisible Ninja. You should really check and see if any Oliphaunts are available for running backs. \:D/

Yeah do we have to put our real info? if not i'll join :D

I would get a Balrog for a quarterback myself. They need Gatorade often though :(

Do you mean we’d use some official tracker of something?
If you need to create an account, you don’t have to give your real info if you don’t want. Just use your ToO name as the name and stuff. That’s what I did for the Fantasy AFL. ;)

Well if we can setup a way to do it anonymously. And we don't have a set time for a draft. (Cause that is not going to work for me.) I'm all for it.

Ah I didn’t think about that. Yeah, the draft will be tough for me too if it has to be on a schedule…

Edit:

Unless there’s a site where we can do it like the AFL one. Where we don’t have a league-wide draft, we all just pick who we want and see whose team does better. (Meaning people can have duplicate players.)

Well we could just do it far enough in advance to just do its your turn you have a day to pick. Or we could use a scoring system like nfl.com's. And just weekly rotate who figures out the scores for the teams. Which in my opinion would be the easiest way to do a thetoo.com league.

I don’t know what you’re talking about because I’ve never played Fantasy NFL before. :P
But if American Eagle can set something up I will gladly participate if I’m able.

Sweet, a number of you are interested! :) Keeping everything anonymous is fine, but using a website is so much easier than trying to score things by ourselves. Plus, there's a lot of features with places like ESPN Fantasy Football. I'm going to set up a league.

1. Go to ESPN.com/ Fantasy (click that).
2. At the very top right corner of the page is the word "Register". Click it and a pop-up will appear.
3. There are three steps. Basically, you'll need a legit email and password. Everything else you can make up anonymously. (Although, for your username, you might want to pick a name similar to your ToO username to let everyone know who you are.)
4. PM me your username and email address (or post it here, if you want). I'll add you to the league.

If you already have an ESPN account, just PM me your username and email address.

I know this may seem like a lot, but from experience, it's so much fun! :D Each week you have a starting lineup that competes against another team. If your players do well, you get more points and can beat the other team. Standings are updated weekly.

We will have an automatic draft on August 25. That means we can select a list of "favorite" players, and then the computer will draft our teams based on our preferences. We may not get all the players we went. No one needs to be online at that time.

If anyone has any questions, let me know! Sign up now! \:D/

You want my email address?!? :o Sorry but that is classified information. :noway: Seeing as it has my name. No way I'm giving that out. Wouldn't just the account name work?

Just create a new Gmail/Yahoo/whatever email address just for this purpose. :-
...for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith. This was to show God’s righteousness, because in his divine forbearance he had passed over former sins. It was to show his righteousness at the present time, so that he might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.

Exactly. ;)
Or you have a secondary email that you only use for signing up for stuff and never use personally like I do.

Autodraft is perfect, thanks AE. Signing up now. :D

Edit:

Apparently I have already signed up there. Sending info now. :D

So this goes just by points the players score in games? No stats or anything?
(For example, you wouldn’t want to pick a punter?)

Punters aren't in the game at all, if I recall.

You'll have a "starting line-up" of 1 quarterback, 2 running backs, 2 wide-receivers, 1 tight end, 1 kicker, and 1 team's defense and special teams (which includes the punter, I guess). You'll also have a "bench" that allows you to swap players in and out.

To answer the question, each position gets points for different things. QBs get special points for passing touchdowns, RBs for every yard they run, kickers for field goals, etc.

Once the draft arrives, you'll get a much better understanding. It's all pretty simple. \:D/

Grr... sorry, the game requires some sort of email address. You certainly don't need to give out your personal address... let me PM you with a proposition.

Laura, you posted, so you have to play! ;)

*checks pm box* It's not that I don't trust you. I am just kinda paranoid I guess. I'll just use my backup I guess.

Fine, if you insist. :noway:

I have problems with that on practically every website; especially the ToO. I had to try six computers before I could find one that had good enough graphics to see the letters and numbers.
It's been awhile, hasn't it?

It's not that I couldn't see it. But i put the exact right thing in, in Chrome, Firefox and IE and it still didn't work. :?
