Anyone interested in a Vanilla points or HTH league this year using yahoo? I haven't played fantasy sports for a few years and it looks like everything happens on the phone now. I like the talking shit aspect!

If there is any interest I'll put it together...nothing overly complicated just an OTP league....get back to basics so its fun for everyone.

We could just give the winner an avatar and a OTP 2018 Fantasy League Champ for a year title.....

Uhh, which out for the autoselection. Apparently Martin Marincin is ranked absurbly high :? I can't remember if it used to as its been 10 years since I stopped doing pools, but does yahoo give you the ability for autodrafting to specifically exclude a guy? You used to be able to pre-rank selections you wanted.

You could adjust the preranking. And I do think you could outright exclude a guy, but do not recall for sure.

Nice thing it does now is auto sets your lineup to active players ten days with one click.

Yeah, sorry, I'm officially out of all fantasy sports leagues/pools until further notice. I went without one after doing 2-3 every year for the first time in roughly a decade and I think I'm better off without it. Even though setting up your lineups every week isn't a big chore in and of itself, I was watching the sport through the wrong lens. It's a shame--I really wanted that trophy.

After a couple of years off I joined a pal's baseball pool last minute this year. Yahoo makes it easy to auto draft and auto lineup, so I didn't do much and finished 5th.

I'd do a hockey one with y'all for fun, since my team won't be particularly entertaining this season, but I get the pain of doing them hardcore.

Me too....so that's why I thought an easy one would be better. I understand we all have our own shit on the side. Hell...don't even need a live draft. So anyway I think I will set one up and if it goes nowhere so be it.

So here you go....simple HTH Points...

https://hockey.fantasysports.yahoo.com/ ... fccb30e342

You guys can also invite whoever you want. Only need 4 and the draft is auto.....set to starting the week of 10/15.

All family is invited! This is just for fun.....I'll try to keep it clean!

The only tweaks I made are....I increased the Roster to match the league 23. Added an IR+ and a utility. Also included points for SH situations.

:lol: I let him watch the Deadpool movies last week. I don't shelter him too hard on that stuff as he is going to hear it all at school and the internet anyway.

Well that didn't take long. Thanks for joining Hounsy and EL.

I even sent a message to Butch....but he's been fairly MIA since the Life progression has hit him.

My old man is onboard again.

So there is 4 of us and enough to proceed. I'll wait until the weekend is over to see if we can get a few holdouts in here.

It an Auto draft and you can set your roster 10 days in advance....so very low key folks!

Ok here we go....I even managed to snag Butch into the league. He doesn't like the autodraft but it is what it is. Should draft within the next 72 based on your prerankings or yahoo prerankings. Scoring starts on 10/15.
