Yahoo! Fantasy Football supports SB Nation and pigskin awesomeness. It’s also the #1 Fantasy Football game thanks to dazzling player research, instant stats with free live scoring, iPhone, Android, and iPad apps this season. Plus, new scoring categories for long receptions and rush plays. (Yes!) Sign up here.
There are any number of ways one could choose to celebrate the (theoretical) return of football. You could drink a Bud Light (new official beer of the NFL) while checking your FedEx delivery on a Verizon phone. You could scratch the various players and owners' names off your "People To Kill" list. You could delete Chris Mortensen and Adam Schefter from your Twitter feed.
Or you could sign up for BRB's fantasy football league!
We've created a 12-team league with custom scoring and player settings. It's set for a live draft on Saturday, August 13th, and rosters will consist of 1 QB, 2 WR, 2RB, 1 TE, 1 WR/RB/TE, 1 K, 1 DEF, 1 IDP, and 6 Bench slots. Scoring is similar to what you'd expect, but with some performance bonuses thrown in, just to keep stuff interesting. For the winner, there's fame, glory, and a large cash prize.
Actually, wait ... I've just been informed that there is no cash prize. Also, all "fame" and "glory" are relative, and really only applicable to your standing among other BRB readers. But, you know, at least there's that.
Anyway, should this league fill up quickly, we will create a second and even a third league if there is enough interest out there.
League Name: Fear of a Battle Red Planet
League ID: 153237
UPDATE: That filled up quickly. Here's the info for League The Second.
League Name: Slightly Darker Black
League ID: 154983
UPDATE OF THE UPDATE: And the second league is full as well. If you didn't get to sign up for either league, but you still want to play, please let me know in the comments below. If there are at least 7 (preferably 9 or 11), I'll set up the third league.
UPDATE OF THE UPDATE OF THE UPDATE: Third league now created.
League Name: Mmm...Brisket
