Let me know if you want to join.  It shows the 6 from last season are "joined via renew".   I think that means you are in it if you want.   I just need to know if all 6 will still be playing.   If someone isn't, I need to boot them out.

I think the only way of someone else joining is if I send them an invite, so if someone wants to join, just post your email (or message me) and I'll send it to you.   Doesn't have to be a primary email.  

This was fun last year and I'm sure will be better this year.   Feel free to recruit other UM members to join.   I seem to remember that there were a couple interested, but I cannot remember who they were.

Nope.   Just bragging rights.     It is fun though.

Okay, I'm new to NFL but think giving this a go might help me learn more about the players and game in general. Plus if a Scottish newb can beat any of you Yanks then that'll be a helluva lot of bragging rights for me and ridicule for whoever I beat. Gimme a PM.

So this is who is currently in.   It just auto renewed the league from last year.

What I need to know:

Will all 6 people be playing?    Who won't?

Does anyone else want to play?    Expand, I can send you an invite.   There really is no fee.   Just bragging rights.

So it's getting to the time to draft our teams.     Any suggestions of when to do it?  

Early in preseason leaves the chances for injuries (but we all face the same risks).    

We are still at these 6 teams.

I can't seem to find anywhere that shows what Yahoo account you may have used.  

You are in there, but maybe if I send you another invite, it will get you to the right account.

You can message me an email address I can send it to.

If you go on to Yahoo fantasy football and find where you click - Join League, just put in the following:

(ID# 136921

It is not as complicated as you may think.    Just look at the list of old geezers who played last year.   ;)

Custom league or free league? https://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/f1/reg/joinleague/competitive?rf=yh.pro.unkcustom

In fact just give me a link to your league page. Be easier that way.

@Myles So how does the draft work with this? On your league page it says it's automated. That mean we don't pick our own players?

Last year, we decided it was too hard to get everyone together at the same time for a live draft.   Takes about 1.25 hours.     So the autopick draft drafts by the Yahoo rankings of players.   It's pretty decent.    There is a option to go in and pre rank the players to how you like them.    For instance, I can put Aaron Rodgers as the first QB I would want.    I think Bama should put his top 30 players as all Alabama alum.

Is there the option to swap players with others in the league?

Yep.   Trades are a fun part of it.      You can offer another player a trade, and if he accepts it, it takes a day or 2 to go through.   The rest of the league can vote on whether it is good.    That is just to avoid someone deciding to quit and trading all their good players for crappy players.   They nearly always go through.
