This thread is specifically to signup for, and discussion about, the GWJFFL, the official fantasy football league of Gamers with Jobs.
Registration is on a first come, first serve basis, with priority given to returning owners. Teams who sign up after all positions are filled will be added to a waiting list to be contacted should a slot become available. The waiting list carries over from year to year so signing up as an alternate for this season reserves your position until you forfeit it.
Changes for 2019:
- Fleaflicker is out. Sleeper is in! The new hotness in free fantasy football league services is Sleeper. Fleaflicker's dreary UI has not kept up over the years, and my hope is that moving to Sleeper will reignite some love of the game.
In particular, I am hoping that everyone finds the draft experience to be much better than Fleaflicker's room, and that the league site's social features will encourage more communication and interaction. Over the course of the season, we'll see what kind of things we can do with the site's tools to spruce up the experience.
- Last year's money league was the Chase for the Kolb. This year, it's...Spoiler:
the Tebow Crusade:
- As I had planned last year but did not get into the rules in time, the money payouts for the pay league will be adjusted to go entirely to the top 3 finishers, minus some money used for the grand prize.
League Champion: $150 and the Tebow
League Runner-Up: $75
3rd Place: $50
- Per discussion in the previous thread, defensive scoring will be adjusted to match Sleeper's default values, except without the minus-points. Therefore:
10 points for shutout
7 points for yielding 1-6 points
4 points for yielding 7-13 points
1 point for yielding 14-20 points
- The Gonzo League shall return, and the floor is now open for rule modification proposals, as well as any other ideas as to how to tweak the league.
While the structure and rules of the GWJFFL are based on the (now defunct) World Championship of Online Fantasy Football, the GWJFFL is a dynamic league and subject to evolution. Please review the official GWJFFL rules to ensure you are familiar with them. (Note: still need to make some edits to this document, coming soon)
GWJFFL offers leagues in three different formats: redraft, dynasty, and a unique chaotic experience.
Redraft format includes both a single "money league" that charges an entry fee, as well as system of free leagues, which will number based on the number of players requesting entrance. Any GWJ site member is eligible to join.
- GWJFFL The Tebow Crusade ("money league")
- GWJFFL Redraft (one or more leagues dependent on player count)
- GWJFFL Dynasty
- GWJFFL Gonzo
