You have to pay $50 for the potential of winning $400. $150 for second and $50 for third. If interested let me know and I'll get you into a new one.

I've been running fantasy football leagues for 15 years now and there is one inalienable truth: You don't draft until the last week of preseason.

I love drafting early. I would draft the day after the NFL draft if the systems were up and running. :D :rock: :govikes: :banana: :appl:

The problem is you end up with more "dead coaches" doing it early. If someone gets injured in pre-season and/or training camp it just sucks some of the fun out of it. Losing top-rated players before the season begins can make a person feel defeated before the games even start.

Most players don't get major injuries a few do. Also after having the preseason you get a better idea of who is going to be good among the rookies and who isn't. Drafting early you don't have the benefit of the added information which to me makes it more fun. There's no right or wrong answer. If a person crumbles because they drafted a player that gets injured I say suck it up and overcome it.

The league didn't get off the ground when I first listed it. the draft was rescheduled for this coming Sunday at June 7 at 5PM Minnesota time. We have 11 of 12 paid with just one opening left. I would love it if it were one of you. Here's the link to the league and the link to payment.
