Hi there! I'm *Legion*, and I will be your tyrant fantasy commissioner this year.
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.
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.
GWJFFL offers leagues in three different formats: redraft, keeper, and dynasty. Redraft leagues are in an ordered hierarchy (including the optional premium league, with cash prizes), while keeper and dynasty formats consist of a single league each.
The current league structure is as follows:
GWJFFL Pro (optional premium league)
GWJFFL Division I
GWJFFL Division II
GWJFFL Division III
In order to register, reply to this post, stating your desire to play, and in which leagues you are interested in playing.

Returning veterans (only last year counts) that post by 23:59 CDT next Tuesday, August 8, will be guaranteed a spot. Beginning August 9, all sign-ups are first come, first serve. Expansion teams (i.e. new owners) should still post ASAP because you'll be added to the waiting list in the order you post to fill what slots remain once the veterans have had their head-start.
Registration will close at 23:59 PDT on Saturday, 08/29.
* 08/01 to 08/08 - Priority registration: returning owners reclaim their spot; new owners get onto the waiting list
* 08/09 to 08/29 - Open registration
Rule changes for 2017:
Only one change will be implemented this year: roster sizes.
Redraft: Maximum of 18 active players (+1)
Keeper: Maximum of 19 active players (+1)
Dynasty: Maximum of 28 active players (+5)
Roster spots have been cut multiple times, and so we are dialing things back slightly this year. Bear in mind that, before we started trimming roster sizes, redraft was a 20 man roster.
The big change is in dynasty, where the roster size simply did not reflect the modern standards of a dynasty league. I was tempted to hit the 30 man mark that I've seen other dynasty leagues operate at, but we will just go with a 5-man increase for 2017.
