Are you in the dynasty league?

Im just seeing if there is somebody else interested,Woo said he wanted in but it had to be even numbers and we only have 6 now that there was a drop out.


No, but I'll have a go if you're looking for numbers. Cheers.

6 was a bit small for the league I was hoping for 8-10 so another couple would be great.

Cool. The IDP players seems like the real challenge there.


Btw, I'm going to post a few possible rule changes for the other league soon and hopefully we can have a consensus on whether or not to adopt them.





Roster Bench size - 5 or 6?


Return Yards included? (1 point per ? 20 or 25 yards maybe? Trying to gauge the value or returners as 1 per 10 yards is very high I reckon.


Playoffs - Top 8 or Top 4?




I was leaving it until closer the draft to get people's opinion on it because I know not everyone logs in here much until then.

I'd say a bench of 5.

It gives space for a back up QB then enough spaces for 2 RB/WR unless you want a TE or back up defence.If the league was smaller if go 6 but there are so many players the waiver wire isn't up to much by week 6.

Maybe have 6 spaces but you must carry a TE/D?.


Having return yards count helps as players like Devin Hester actually become viable picks.

I can't think of many starting RB/WR(1/2 options) that return yards except Sproles.

1 pt per 20 yards sounds fair to me.

Should leave some waiver wire pick ups for the later weeks with 5 bench players.

Doesn't sound much difference but with 16 extra players sitting there it should be interesting.

Also, if we're including Returners yards and TDs, then maybe I should take return TDs out of the Defence scoring? As if Hester returns a kickoff then he'll get yards, TD, and Chicago Defence will get 6 too.


Probably no need to include return TDs in the Defence stats if the players themselves are a viable option...?

Not sure as some of return guys are DB's and not a option to pick.

Personally I'd leave the defence scoring points aswell. Maybe make them worth 4 pts to either the player or defence.

Patrick Peterson



In other news Mike Wallace is expected back with the Steelers by the weekend.


MJD holdout getting more complicated as he has said he is open to a trade.Don't know if either have the cap room but the steelers and jets should be trying to do a deal.

2 Defensive Backs(Corner backs or Safety)

And 1 flex

Do waiver pick ups work the same in the Dynasty league?


I have set them up the same.

Would you prefer it a different way?

I have not had any issues with it,its not like watching on a top notch HD tv but its just as good if not better as any sandard def tv.Depends on your broadband connection but there is a program to check it out on the website.


Couple of different packages

If you just want the browns its £85 for the regular season


I went with

All games/teams

Watch LIVE 2012 Preseason and Regular Season games, full replays of all Playoff games including Super Bowl XLVII, 24/7 NFL Network live, and full replays of any 2009-2012 games through the entire Offseason.

Access through 31 Jul 2013.


which is £130 in one go or £10 extra if you want to pay on 4 instalments.


You cant get the playoffs or any game sky show on sundays due to black outs till 6 days after.

You should be able to swap players round for a few days till the season starts then it should revert to reserves order of standings each week.

If you have any issues after the draft key me know and I'll get them sorted.

Just checked and the players on the waiver wire become active after 1 day.

Changes can be made up to game time they then lock till Tuesday same ad the regular league.



I changed the keepers up to 17 from season to season and got rid of the reserve and added it onto the bench instead.Up to anyone if they want to bother drafting a injured player for late in the season or next season.Just makes it easier.
