Planet Steelers Fantasy Football league
It's about that time again to start looking in to the fantasy football leagues on Yahoo. As always, last years players will have first dibs on a spot in this years league.
It looks like some players from last year have become pretty minimal posters on the board, but I'm pretty sure it will send an email when I renew the league.
The teams and/or managers in the league I set up were:
SF in TO
Toe Jam Football
If you want to play again then leave a message here and claim your spot!
I'm in, of course...I wonder if the start of fantasy season will draw the likes of Kiwi Sarah back onto the board...and that Asian fellow as well...I hope he didn't retire from the board when Hines Ward retired from the Steelers.

6- Time Super Bowl Champions......

I am down to play. I'll be around here more now that we are getting closer to the season!
I was in a different league, but ran by someone here as well. can't remember who, sorry..... If they start it up again, I'm in.
Jooser and the Mt. Mama League. Hopefully he is willing to run his again and we can sister them out and battle it out with dual leagues again.

The live draft is set for August 25th at 8:30 PM eastern time.
Scoring settings will be carried over from last year's league.
New for this year:
Every team will be allowed to designate two players as their keeper players. By doing so you will sacrifice your pick in the round you selected that player last year. If you picked the player up as an undrafted player then you be designated as drafting that player in the last round (or last two rounds) of the draft. I can edit draft order and put players in place, so that will all be accounted for before the draft occurs and the list of keeper players and their draft position will be posted for everyone to see.
The deadline for designating keeper players in Monday, August 20th, one week before the draft.
This years draft order will be randomly assigned, and I will have that done as soon as all the spots are filled.
Deadline for 'advanced registration':
Last years players have first dibs on registration, and any spots not accepted before 11:59 PM eastern time on Monday, August 13th, will be offered to players in the order in which they express interest in this thread. New players taking the spot of last years participants will be randomly assigned a vacated roster from last years league from which to select their 2 keeper players.
Please respond to this thread with any questions, comments, or concerns about the way the league is set up.
To view the results of last years draft for keeper player compensation rounds, go to the 'Draft Central' tab at the top of the page in the red toolbar and at the bottom of the drop down list click on the link for 'Last season'
Options to consider, now that I've though about things some more:
should it be 1 or 2 keeper players? with a 12 team league, is 24 players too many to have held out of the true draft?
and should we do random draw for draft order or model it directly off of the NFL with reverse order from worst to champion, not snaking at the end of rounds?
