so we need to draft in the next week or two.

Thursday nights don't work for the DM BW's.

Next Monday doesn't work for me either....other than that whenever.

Next Monday is no good for me either...My 8 year league drafts on the 30th (Reigning champion by the way...scored a cool 200 bucks last year for winning)...Just about any other evening will work for me...so long as its past 7:30 your time

Completely open for discussion, for some reason I thought we had 2 QBs last season.

We only had 1 QB last year and while we did have 3 WR slots last year I don't like the idea at all especially since we have a flex position. The 3rd wide receiver spot gets waay too watered down with people putting guys nobody has heard of in a starting slot and they barely score any points. I think the flex position is better to have than the 3rd WR slot but not both.

I'm also not a fan of passing TD's being only 4 pts, i think they should be 6. Some people might think that gives Qb's too much of an advantage but if you only have 1 QB slot then it puts Qb's at a premium rather than watering down their value so everyone drafts nothing but RB's in the first two rounds.

This is all my opinion but I also think it will make the league better too.

Also, does yahoo allow for bonus points in any way? I know that was brought up earlier.

One last thing, non-scoring related. I would drop the waiver time down to 1 day or take it off all together if possible too so people dont have to wait so long to add dropped players. By the 2nd half of the season when Thursday games start going, If someone drops a player monday then they only become available thursday morning with less than 1 day to add the player before they might play on thursday.

Again this is just my opinion for what would work better

I think you need a waiver period of at least one day so everyone has the chance to check in and see a new player that someone has dropped...

Also, I would agree that 3 WR's and a flex spot might be overkill. I don't care about the QB count, 1 or 2 is fine. But 2WR and a flex or 3WR would probably be enough players to manage. Adding that extra spot would certainly make the draft more interesting in the later rounds though...and could truly determine the best manager.

I'm also cool leaving everything as is...just bummed the draft isn't for another week and a half :x
Will we be having two leagues this year or one? I saw the league was limited to 10 players...and what's the payout gonna be...10, 25, 65 or winner take all or what??

Payout top 3 obv....but yeah just another week and a half for Harvin and crew to get healthy and other top-tier WR's to break an arm playing flag football or wrestle around with their coach.
