    OMG MORE CONTENT! My earnest intent is for me to get this off on the right foot, and for someone else to take over at some point. Pretty plz. Here are the (tentative) rules:

    Rules

    1. You must have 1 QB, 1 HB, 1 TE, 2 WR, 1 K, and 1 “Flex” (QB/HB/FB/TE/WR). You must have 1 defense (I.E. I select the Southern Miss Defense as a whole). These amounts may be adjusted based on how many fantasy owners and users there are in the dynasty.

    2. You MAY NOT select ANY of your own players. This rule exists so that you don’t pad your own stats to win the fantasy season. You also may only select players from user teams.

    3. Draft order will be decided by final BCS rankings of the previous year in the first year of the fantasy draft, and final rankings of the previous fantasy season in subsequent years. The lowest ranked team picks first. The draft format will be traditional – 8 rounds, from the top of the draft order to the bottom, and then back up top. You may select whoever you want (given that your team doesn’t have that slot already) whenever you want.

    4. As this is a simplified version of fantasy football, you will have to stick with your position starters for the entire year. There will be no depth drafted, and no trades.

    5. In the event of an injury to your starter (if they miss the entirety of a game or more), you may pick up any one undrafted player at the same position for the extent of your starter’s injury. If your Flex is injured, you may pick any undrafted player that would’ve been a flex had he been drafted. If two or more players have their fantasy starters injured, the players will select their replacements according to the draft order that started the fantasy season off.

    6. Injuries to defensive players do not allow an additional defense to be drafted – you are stuck with your defense for the season. Choose wisely.

    7. The fantasy season will end after the final regular season week – some players may or may not participate in Conference Championships and Bowls, so this is the only way to keep the stats fair for all.

    8. Scoring: As of this time, I don’t know what scoring system we’ll use (keep in mind, I’ve NEVER done fantasy anything before :p), so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. A quick google search has provided a potential scoring system:
      1. 1 point for 25 passing yards
      2. 1 point for 10 rushing yards
      3. 1 point for 10 receiving yards
      4. 6 points for a touchdown
      5. 4 points for a passing touchdown
      6. -2 points for every interception thrown or fumble lost
      7. 1 point for each extra point made
      8. 3 points for each 0-39 yard field goal, 4 points for each 40-49 yard field goal, and 5 points for each 50+ yard field goal
      9. 2 points per turnover gained by defense
      10. 1 points per sack by the defense
      11. 2 points for a safety by defense
      12. 6 points for each touchdown scored by defense
    Hopefully this works for the first season, unless someone has some scoring system they prefer.

    9. Always pick a Virginia player/defense, if given the opportunity.

    Now, the way I've set this up, you can have a successful fantasy football season with only 2 people, or up to 12. Obviously, I'd like as many people as possible to participate, but...we may get an uncharacteristically low amount of participation :eek:. The first thing I would like to know is...HOW MANY PEOPLE WOULD ACTUALLY BE INTERESTED IN PARTICIPATING?

    We would probably do the draft between Players Leaving (in case a junior you want to pick leaves early) and the beginning of the season. Yea, someone may get an enticing freshman, but we'll cross that bridge when we get there. All on the forums, and should be a very fast process. Just grab your guy and wait for the next round. I'll try to keep track of the selections, so you know what pieces you still need to draft. I leave the player research up to you :p

    Welp, looks like its only you and me left! Let me know if you still wanna do this, even with only two people. On the bright side, the draft and maintenance would be pretty darn easy, because I'll make my selections pretty quickly.

    Also, because I am lazy, I would like to remove the injury replacement thingy (Rule #5). It covers only a small possibility, and keeping it in would force all of us (or just me >_>) to monitor everyone's injury status every week, which frankly, I don't want to do. Yea, it'll suck if your key guy goes down for extended time - but it's just as likely to happen to anyone anyway. Let me know your thoughts.

    I do not know how everyone treats their starters so lets see how the injuries effect the fantasy scoring then we'll adjust from there.

    Well, we're in-season. I figured that we could still run the draft while the season's going on, as you can see everyone's roster. A couple of games won't give you a complete picture as to how a player will do, so whatever. You're up first, so please just copy the below format for all of your picks.

    Player - Team - Position (The position you're drafting them as, i.e. WR vs Flex)

    I'll just do a sample draft (with 1 player) so you know what I'm looking for:

    Caleb Jordan - UVA - WR (WR)
    Luke Nolen - LSU - HB (HB)
    Kentucky Defense - UK - Defense
    Gray Crow - FAU - QB (QB)
    Damon Townsend - KU - TE (TE)
    Keon Rutledge - UMass - WR (WR)
    Jonathan Kearney - USM - WR (Flex)
    Daniel Schwars - Tulsa - K (K)

    Obviously, don't show all of your picks in one post - just wait for me to make my selection after yours, and then keep on drafting. It would probably be best to keep a draft board like the following, so you know what you need:

    QB:
    HB:
    TE:
    WR:
    WR:
    K:
    Flex:
    Defense:

    ...and just copy it into your next post, updating it with whatever pick you made that round. Draft away!

    EDIT: Keep in mind, you can't draft your own players. Given that there's only two people, you don't need to rush to get UVA players, and I don't need to rush to get UMass players. If/Once we get a third participant, the rush will be on, but alas...

    Why would you have to rush for players if you got to pick all of yours from the beginning fool?
