Anyone interested in some more fantasy football? I'm looking for 15 people to help me "beta" a new format (yes, I'm a masochist). Admittedly, I forgot about it until I was driving into work this morning so I'm sorry for the late notice. You can get the gist of it here (rules are subject to change*).

This sounds kind of awesome. I'm in.

+1

I'll play.

Insane? You should love it. You always say how you want fantasy to be more like NFL. (Disclaimer: I may be making that up.) What's more NFL than too many teams, not enough (quality) players? ;)

None of that conflicts with it being insane.

I'll give it shot. The more leagues I'm in, the greater shot I have to win.

Going to bed with 13. Here's hoping we can pick up 3 more tomorrow.

I'll draft in if you want. I'm a little bit full with the leagues I have, so it won't be a priority, but if you need someone to fill a spot in the draft and keep starters in, I'm game. I would have been much more excited about a draft like this before week 1 (not that you intended it to be now).

I'll play.

Interested in beta league!

I know we're going on week 2 but this one doesn't really count, right? *wink wink, nudge nudge* Still, anyone who participates will be first on the list if it goes live next season. I'll need to figure out fairly soon if I'm going to do it (the beta) so let me know ASAP. Thanks.

*Although we'll start over next preseason for sure (if there's a 2012 edition) but I'm thinking of making it a pseudo-dynasty league moving forward. Of course, that will be open to discussion as right now I'm just trying to get this thing kicked off (or not).

I'll keep the count/list in this post but if we make it to 16, I'll create a separate organization/discussion thread.

Jolly Bill is only listed as an alternate because I want to leave room for someone who might be a bit more interested/committed. If you didn't get an invitation to the league from ESPN (I think there were two), PM me your email address.

Please take all additional GWJFFLX discussion (including if you want to fill that last slot) over to the thread. Thanks. We now return you to your regularly scheduled program.

Jamaal Charles goes down in the first quarter of the Lions game with an apparent (serious) knee injury. The Chiefs run game looked strong too.

Yeah, saw that. Fairly freak accident, but the Chiefs are stacked at RB. Not good for fantasy owners though.

Flea Flicker crapped out again.

It's fine if you go to fleaflicker.com, not a url like fleaflicker.com/nfl

It's weird.

I was this close to starting Jacoby Jones instead of Mike Williams (TB) today since Jones was named the starter against Miami and Williams is playing against the Vikings D. I actually put Jones in but then took him out later, so far at halftime Williams has a big fat goose egg. At least McNabb looks to have picked it up this week, good for him.

I am able to get to it ok. The link I am using is:

Will have to substitute values for your league of course.

And this week, Rodgers and Jennings have done sweet f*** all as compared to last week.

Gahhh! My Feaaflicker team page won't load, and I just jumped 20 points and don't know why!!!

Yeah I've had the league scoreboard for FF3 up since 1pm and it keeps refreshing properly, everything in much better shape than last week.

Also, I got Devery Henderson in my other league but instead I gave Plax a chance to play this week. 0 points for him, but 20 for DH on my bench... ugh.

You buried the lede. He collided with the Lion's mascot. Best play a Lion made all day.

Nope, still can't get to GWJFFL2's section.

I think this may be the last time I don't start Fred Jackson (24 points so far after 17 last week). Let him sit in favor for Miles Austin. Austin's got a lot of making up to do this afternoon.

YES! Jordy Nelson, previously a goose-egg today, 84yd TD to seal the game for GB!

Also, maybe I should start Jason Campbell instead of Romo? Going to be hard for Romo to hit 30 points today I'd think. Sheesh.

Seriously Brandon Lloyd is out and I can't remove him because of f*cking Fleaflicker sucking. If we don't change next year you can count me out.

Edit: Got him replaced just in time..whew..

Substitute Sproles for Henderson and that's my (GWJFFL3) story, too.

For the record, we're likely going to ESPN next season now that they have FAAB. GWJFFLX will be testing it out to be sure.

Understood. I'm not blaming anyone because fleaflicker has been awesome in years past. Just really frustrating when you almost can't sub someone out during a close fantasy game.

As long as you post here before game start, I'm willing to give you the benefit of the doubt and get your guy in for you when the site comes back so don't sweat it. I actually had the exact same problem so I completely understand where you're coming from.

That being said, I'm willing to cut FF a little slack given that they've recently gone from being under AOL's umbrella (and on their infrastructure) back to being independent.
