It's that time of year again. It's time for the BGO Fantasy Football League. We've all seen your posts. We've read your ideas on how to build a successful football team. Now it's time to put your ideas into action. It's time to see who is the best fake football GM on this board. The contest is free and it's open to everyone. The more the merrier! In the past, we've had up to 3 leagues to accommodate everyone. So depending on how many people we get, we will divide up into leagues of 8, 10, or 12 players.

We will use yahoo as we have in the past and use the same scoring and roster rules as before:

1 QB, 2 RBs, 2 WRs, 1 TE, 1 Flex, 1 DST, 1 K

We want you to play. Whether you are a novice or an expert. Whether it's your 1st year or your 11th. We want you to play in this league.

To summarize:
You get to put your football team building ideas into action
You won't be worse at Fantasy Football than Bruce Allen was as the GM of a real team
You get to have camaraderie with the other members on this board
You get to have lots of fun
It costs you nothing but a few minutes each week


You do not want to miss out this year, so sign up today. All you need to do is reply in this thread that you want to play and I will setup the leagues and invite the players. Once we have the leagues set, we will work on setting the draft date to try and accommodate as many as we can.

I'm down, let's not lose "Our" tradition along with "Pick-Em" it helps keeps the sanity especially in uncertain times where something simple yet competitive is needed.

Yeah, I kind of feel like this year we might need the distractions more than ever :) Pickem will definitely happen.

Gonna just say up front, I will not be participating in fantasy this year. I just have no enthusiasm for it.

In what is going to be an otherwise very odd season, I would welcome the bit of normalcy provided by fantasy.

We are approaching the season and need to know if you want to play in the BGO Ballers Fantasy Football league this year. If you guys/gals want to have Fantasy Football this season, you need to speak up so we know there is enough interest to put this together.

I updated the OP to give an official announcement of the league. If you are interested, we need you! If you see your name in the OP, then I have you signed up. If you want to play, just reply here and I will add your name to the list.

Folks need to speak up if they are playing FF or Pickem. Last time I checked a measly 5 people had committed for Pickem. That’s almost not worth the work setting it up.

To that point, we need to know if anyone else is interested in playing. We need either 8, 10, or 12 people to play. We are at 6 right now. You don’t have to feel pressured. If you don’t want to play, that’s fine. I know some have stated they don’t have the desire to play this year. But if you do want to play, I need to know ASAP.

Sorry, I just saw this, is there still room for more participants? I’d love to play this season if possible. Last season got away from me and really, it’s the only thing that keeps me interested in the NFL, pure gambling competition 🤣
